I have always really enjoyed this song. I love that it's not a popular song of Michael Jackon's but it's simple and fun. I wanted to stay true to both myself and Michael while thinking about how to approach it. I kept his original base track. I added guitars and extras, then sang it. I think it's a really fun track and hope you enjoy!


Why You Wanna Trip On Me

They say I'm different, they don't understand
But there's a bigger problem, that's much more in demand
You got world hunger, not enough to eat
So there's really no time, to be trippin' on me
You got school teachers, who don't want to teach
You got grown people, who can't write or read
You got strange diseases, ah but there's no cure
You got many doctors, that aren't so sure
So tell me

Why you want to trip on me
Why you want to trip on me
Stop trippin'

We've got more problems than we'll ever need
You got gang violence and bloodshed on the street
You got homeless people, with no food to eat
With no clothes on their back, and no shoes for their feet
We've got drug addiction, in the minds of the weak
We've got so much corruption, police brutality
We've got streetwalkers, walkin' into darkness
Tell me what are we doing
To try to stop this


Everybody just stop trippin'


Stop trippin' [Repeat: x4]
