Michael Jackson - Do You Know Where Your Children Are (lyrics)

[INTRO TO SONG - not in a Demo version - just in the Full version]

You could ask yourself a question
Do I feel lucky...
well do ya....Punk?

(cock of a gun an Gunshot sound) Beat drops, horns sound

(Over a loud speaker) Ladies and gentlemen EAK (man)

[Instrumental]

(VERSE ONE)
Father comes home from work and he's scared to death
Mother cries out again, it's no charade (or mothers in the kitchen he knows she read)
Father runs to the table, he says what's going on
Mother cries desperately, our little baby's gone

[ CHORUS ONE ]

Do you know where your children are
Because it's now 12 o'clock
And they're somewhere out on the street
Just imagine how scared they are
(repeat twice)

[ VERSE TWO ]

She wrote that she is tired of step-daddy using her
Saying that he'll buy her things, while sexually abusing her
Just think that she's alone somewhere out on the street
How will this girl survive? She ain't got nothing to eat!

[ CHORUS ONE and MICHAEL ]

Do you know where your children are?
Because it's not 12 O'clock,
And they're somewhere out on the street
Just imagine how scared they are

Do you know where your children, children, children, children, children, children, children, children...

(JAY-Z) Maintain'in is the same old thing,
A Little Stress, a little (inaudible) aint too much change.
I see you kept it movin'
You see I kept improvin' (or kept it groovin')
She Know that I had an agreement,
Remember when I used to walk up and down the Sceneit Uh huh.
Put it down, through the streets
is watchin State hood it down,
Just had it (inaudible)
What good is it now?.

(CHORUS TWO and MICHAEL)

Do you know where your children are?
Because it's now 12 O'clock,
And they're somewhere out on the street
Just imagine how scared they are.

Do you know where your children are?
Because it's now 12 O'clock,
And they're somewhere out on the street
Just imagine how scared they are.

(Save Me (8x's and adlibs) until guitar solo)

[ BRIDGE]

Save me [ Michael - from this livin' hell ]
Save me [ Michael - 'cus that I'm gonna do ]
Save me [ Michael - 'cus I'm tired and unfed (I 'm mad?) ]
Save me [ Michael - 'cus this because of you (Hoo) ]
Save me [ Michael - 'cus I'm on the bed ]
Save me [ Michael - 'cus I don't want no more ]
Save me [ Michael - 'cus terror arrived ]
Save me [ Michael - awwwwww ]

(Guitar Solo 20 seconds long)

[ VERSE THREE ]

Now she's on the move, she's off to Hollywood
She said she wanna be a star she heard the money's good
She gets off from the train station a man is waiting there
"I'll show you where the money is girl just let down your hair"

He's takin' her on the streets of Sunset Boulevard
She's selling her body ha girl that will take you far
The police come 'round the corner somebody up there had told
He's arresting this little girl who's only 12 years old

[ CHORUS THREE and MICHAEL ]

Do you know where your children are
Because it's not (now?) 12 o'clock
And they're somewhere out on the street
Just imagine how scared they are

Do you know where your children are
Because it's not (now?) 12 o'clock
And they're somewhere out on the street
Just imagine how scared they are

Do you know where your children are [ Michael - children are ]
Because it's not (now?) 12 o'clock [ Michael - do you know where your children are ]
And they're somewhere out on the street [ Michael - do you know...watch your baby ]
Just imagine how scared they are... [ Michael - watch your baby, watch your babyyeahhhhhh, eh eh ]

Do you know where your children are [ Michael - hee hee hee ]
Because it's not (now?) 12 o'clock [ Michael - hee hee hee ]
And they're somewhere out on the street [ Michael - hee hee hee ]
Just imagine how scared they are... [ Michael - hee hee hee ]

(Police's Sirens sound, gunshots heard)

Do you know where your children are [ Michael - watch your baby ]
Because it's not (now?) 12 o'clock [ Michael - watch your baby ]
And they're somewhere out on the street [ Michael - watch your baby ]

Father comes home from work and he's scared to death
Mother cries out again, it's no charade (or mothers in the kitchen he knows she read)
Father runs to the table he says "What's going on?"
