i don't care if you have a wife and children

"They Don't Care About Us"

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, aggravation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Bang bang, shot dead
Everybody’s gone mad

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Beat me, hate me
You can never break me
Will me, thrill me
You can never kill me
Jew me, sue me
Everybody do me
Kick me, kike me
Don’t you black or white me

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Tell me what has become of my life
I have a wife and two children who love me
I am the victim of police brutality, now
I’m tired of being the victim of hate
You’re ripping me off my pride
Oh, for God’s sake
I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy…
Set me free

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Trepidation, speculation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Black man, blackmail
Throw your brother in jail

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Tell me what has become of my rights
Am I invisible because you ignore me?
Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now
I’m tired of being the victim of shame
They’re throwing me in a class with a bad name
I can’t believe this is the land from which I came
You know I really do hate to say it
The government don’t wanna see
But if Roosevelt was living
He wouldn’t let this be, no, no

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, speculation
Everybody litigation
Beat me, bash me
You can never trash me
Hit me, kick me
You can never get me

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Some things in life they just don’t wanna see
But if Martin Luther was living
He wouldn’t let this be, no, no

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, segregation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Kick me, kike me
Don’t you wrong or right me

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about
All I wanna say is that
they don’t really care about
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

hi. I have a question that's been bothering me for a while and I thought I'd ask someone who loves and knows mj like me. so I just wanna know why on his 1995 HIStory album he has LMP in the You Are Not Alone video but sings “I have a wife and two children that love me” in They Don’t Care About Us which is on the same album, it confuses me bc he didn't have kids with LMP and didn't marry Debbie until 1996 then Prince wasn’t born until 1997. I just don't get it hahah please reply ty xxx

OMG I HAVE BEEN WONDERING THAT EXACT QUESTION FOR LIKE MY ENTIRE LIFE AND FINALLY I DID SOME DEEP RESEARCH THIS WEEK AND I FOUND OUT! THANK YOU FOR INSPIRING ME TO DO THAT!

so, lisa had 2 children at that time from her ex, riley and benjamin, and michael was referring to them! it makes more sense lyric/beatwise if you say “i have a wife and two children” than “i have a wife and two stepchildren from her ex” lol. that’s just my guess, but the more i think about it the more i like that guess :’)

here! have a picture of michael and his step children:

hope i helped! thanks for asking me :)
