"He's white, Jim . . . "

Why don't you like me?
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you like me?
Am I really that bad?
He's bad, he's bad, he's bad

"I think you're a jerk! I'm moving from you!"
"Make me a sandwich."
"Moving to Venice."
"I'll be black."
(Jack! What?)
"Still white, Jim . . . "

I hate my mother
I hate my father
I am my sister. ..
And Jermaine is a negro!
A negro! A negro! A negro!

"I thought he looked good - what happened to you?"
"Please read this pamphlet."
"I'm so BAD!"

You take the monkey, I'll take the llama,
We'll have a party: get me a Pepsi -
Michael is Janet, Janet is Michael -
I'm so confused now -
Who is Diana?

He's oxygenated
His nose is deflated
And he thinks he looks good to you
He thinks he looks good to you

Ike: Oh, I'm sorry. ..
Fz: This is supposed to be the part where I. .. Name people who are not. .. Related in any particular way to. .. Michael Jackson. .. So. .. Oh, let's see now, who could it be. .. Uh. .. What's your name. .. ? His name is Bob? Bob is not the illegitimate son of Michael Jackson, take it from me. ..

Billy Jean is not Mr. Bob
Arnold Silvestri. .. (Ha ha ha!)
Billy Jean isn't Arnold Silvestri
Jeanne Kirkpatrick. ..
Billy Jean is not Kirkpatrick
Lando Calrissian. ..

Give me oxygen
Give me oxygen
Give me oxygen
Box o' turds

Fz: That's right, a box o' turds
