Jackson, Michael - Don't Be Messin' 'Round Lyrics




Are you ready for a real good time
Are you ready for a real good treat
There'll be so much dancing, singing
I let you fall into me

[Chorus:]
So don’t be messin’ around, don’t be messin around
Don’t be messin’ around hey hey hey
Don’t be messin’ around, don’t be messin’ around
Don’t be messin’ around hey

If I started now in the deep
Think you said this feeling is your life
I’ll be so proud if you let me love ya girl
Let me love ya for a little while

[Chorus:]
Don’t be messin’ around, don’t be messin around
Don’t be messin’ around hey hey hey
So don’t be messin’ around, don’t be messin’ around
Don’t be messin’ around hey
Oho yeah yeah,
Oho yeah, oho yeah, oho yeah

Now she started finger popping to the beat
So I said lets get right on the floor
She said to keep your mind on dancing
Won't be no romancing
No no don't mess around with me
I ain't playing

[Chorus:]
Don’t be messin’ around, don’t be messin around
Don’t be messin’ around hey hey hey
So don’t be messin’ around, don’t be messin’ around
Don’t be messin’ around hey hey

[Chorus x2]

    Evolution of Don't be messin around Recordings.
    1. Recorded for Thriller album 1982
    2. Reworked for Bad album 1987
    3. Reworked for Dangerous 1991
    4. Reworked for History 1995
    5. Lastly Reworked for probably the cancelled 2009 album that he was recording during the this is it rehearsals.
    Such a Homeless but satisfying track. I wonder if it would have been a No.1 Hit or a Top 5 hit. I wonder how it's other album sessions sounded like apart from the Bad sessions.

  15. iris teixeira

    This reminds me of "The Heat is On" by Glenn Frey!

  16. Madalena Caldas

    The Bad 25 songs trump the original bad songs !!! MJ was just a pure creative genius ❤️

  22. ROCKERS LIVE IN A YELLOW SUBMARINE

    FUN FACT: Did you know that this was recorded in 1986 during the Bad sessions. Other versions recorded in 1982, 1990 & 1995 – Early 2009, during the Thriller, Dangerous & HIStory sessions

    black sama

    the song was never worked during this is it

  23. carmen canal perez

    Madre mía, qué enganche tengo con este tema. Es adictivo, lo escucho un montón de veces al día y no me sacio. Era un éxito seguro.

  24. Gillian Garnerone

    Actually, he only played the bridge and not the entire piano part (cf Swedien declarations about the song). It is not offense to say it, regardly michael jackson ability to compose and having a global view of each song that came through his mind during all his amazing carreer.
    He wasn’t a musician. He was a great performer, a talented skills dancer, a very successfull businessman and, from the declarations of his children, a sweet and attentive father.

    That’s more than enough for a lifetime.

  25. Pearl Jr Documentary Filmmaker

    Rumor Michael Jackson planned and executed the GREATEST hoax in world history has been PROVEN true!

  29. Karina

    ''Bad'' and ''Bad 25'' is my all-time favourite Michael Jackson album...

  30. lupita lupita

    con esta cancion demo se van juntando las razones para creerle que grababa varias canciones para un album pero descartaba muchas... me encanta esta pues se oye su voz grave no solo los tonos agudos

  31. Mider-Span Man

    The runtime of the video is ironically 4:20. People world wide should chill to this jam.

  32. Mider-Span Man

    3:00 "2Pac 2Pac 2Pac"

    JayOneOfTheChosenOnes

    Mider-Span Man 🤣🤣💯💯 Thats probably how MJ would’ve said Pac name too !!

  33. Christian Frazier

    This and streetwalker would’ve been amazing on the official album. It sucks that they were scrapped :/

    Mider-Span Man

    Bro! I was just literally thinking this! I was watching the unreleased songs video, and those 2 songs are what caught my fancy.

  34. sven trogrlic

  35. Luna Mama

    Dancin in the streets

  36. John Bevegård

    nemoran

  46. Damar K Dennis

    He originally wrote this in 1982 for Thriller. He then rerecorded this for Bad, Dangerous, History. And one last time for This is it

    Pedro Henrique

    Rercorded in 1982, reworked in 1986, reworked in 1990, revisited in 1995, reworked in 1999

    black sama

    @Pedro Henrique was reworked during "this is it " session

    Pedro Henrique

    @black sama Yes

  47. M-Pez

    Man I wished he had completed this song, definitely would have deserved a spot on the BAD album.

  48. chup Tee

    don't be messin' round with MJ

  49. monicawism

    I seem to love every single song MJ has ever recorded. This is why he is king....of my heart. #lovemj4ever

    Sam Trolland

    monicawism im the exact same, i cant find a song of his or one he has featured in that i dont like, i love all his unrealeased songs like im so blue and hot street. I cant go a day without listening to him. Also there is a rare song he done with Paul McCartney that alot of mj fans will love called “The Man” its on Paul’s album released in 1983

  50. Norma Arias

    Me encanta!! Michael cantando bossa nova es fabuloso

  51. Edith Jacksoƞ

  57. 63someoneelse

    Hier, on m'a arraché une dent, ça me fait un mal de chien. Alors je mets mes écouteurs et j'écoute Mike. Je ne pense plus à la douleur. Je me trouve à des millions d'années lumière de mon corps. Mike je t'aime pour toujours.

    Hl Mnt

    Toi aussi ! Enfin pas pour la dent lol
    Mais moi aussi quand ça va pas fort j'écoute Michael, ça permet d'évacuer le stresse, la peur et la tristesse :)

    63someoneelse

    La musique et l'amour guérissent, l'âme.

  58. Captain Rhodes

    nice demo. If you listen you can hear him singing the parts that the band is supposed to play. I think thats pretty much how he wrote the songs. realy nice

  59. spesfloret

    Love this, and is a demo. What a soul MJ's music always has had (in all senses). DELIGHTFUL.

  60. smilemouse11

    the piano play by michael jackson

  61. Galaxy101 Gamer

    I have the 2 CDs and when I listen to this song it reminds of me I don't know why but I almost sound like him singing :/

  62. sänd li

    I love you Michael, with all my heart! What a beautiful song <3

  63. Felipe Oliveira

    Eu te amo Michael!

  64. TheGingerOne

    10 dislikes now... what happened to the world?!, this song is incredible !, why would anyone dislike this masterpiece?!

    beingsshepherd

    On several levels, it's very weak:
    Bland chorus, crude funk guitar, ineffectual strings, metronome-like congas ...

    It's almost like a preset rhythm from a late '80s _Yamaha_ children's keyboard.

    I will not _dislike_ it thought, as it's only a demo.

  65. Fezla Amadi

    I LOVE YOU Michael JACKSON

  66. KREMZInc

    Those 7 dislikes must mean they were messin' around

    Michael baby, I won't be able to keep my mind on dancing. Because I'd rather be romancing with you.

    Starr Smith

    Well it's either that or a bedroom lmao

    Alyssa Jones

    @Anti-social Crisis 😉

    GG _l o v e s music

    Omg same!!

  69. Joe Kendrick

    The string part at 0:51 sounds like the part in the hotel intro to the live performances of Smooth Criminal, AKA- "The Way You Make Me Feel" Intro in the "This Is It" rehearsals

    Tiago Domiciano

    That intro is in the unreleased song "Streetwalker", but more faster

  70. eugenia

    Bruce Swedien revealed the singer had completed a powerful track entitled Don’t Be Messin’ Around. Featuring what was described as a mesmerising solo performance.

    Mr Swedien said of the ballad: “Michael plays piano on it, and it’s just beautiful.” He added: “Oh my God, there’s nothing like it.

    GO Michael!!!

    Comedian Marvin Howard

    @Arianna Daimon Still butthurt I see. 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

    Isaiah Young

    Richárd Kovács whoever youre talking must've got roasted

    REctershi23 23

    Comedian Marvin Howard Oh go away you salty jerk. Leave the MJ fans to enjoy the music and go listen to Purple Rain for the thousandth time.

    noname nobody

    @Comedian Marvin Howard talk about mj all you want it's not gonna change the fact that he was one of the greatest artists to ever live

  71. Miss DizzleDazzle

    black sama facts y’all know y’all shit , I wish a Prince fans was on this thread so we can gang their asses🤣💯

    black sama

    @JayOneOfTheChosenOnes True man! I was literally amused when i heard prince fans blaming that mj couldn't play instruments. i mean they could even checked credits for history and invincible .. George michael never played any instrument live,Whitney never played instruments,eminem never played instruments why dont they get mentioned in the same zone? Funfact mj did synthesizers in bille jean himself... mj got better with piano skills after passage of time

    JayOneOfTheChosenOnes

    black sama yes they must know this !!!

  73. kycologist

    I love how he's humming along with the melody  ;)

    Makayla Giddings

    I agree

    Zoe Skinner

    sweetchari He's imitating the sounds from various instruments that he feels should be included, he generally did that with his songs

    Murada

    That's him mimicking the guitar and how he wanted it to be played.

  74. Hello Patsey

    Michael's unreleased songs are the very best aspects of his creative music 

    GG _l o v e s music

    Hello Patsey Exactly!!

  75. destiny swopes

    Um, why didn't he release this? This is my song! I listen to it almost everyday. No joke.

    Isaiah Young

    destiny swopes same

    jessie white

    mostly because it wasn't his choice.but not only this definitely should've hit no.1 at the charts,it also should've been inserted in one of his albums.

    Joe Tasker

    Same 😂 when he makes the sounds of the instruments it’s so cute

    Jenny

    Agreed, it's hugely underrated.

    Murada

    He probably has hundreds of songs that are unreleased like this. According to one of his producers he would have songs he even spent years working on that he never finished. When he died in his bed room was a list of songs he was working on still. Some songs were very new and some were pretty old. My best guess though is that maybe he forgot he even recorded this and never came back to it. He probably forgot more songs than he remembered recording since he did so many.

  76. Charlie

    Good song to salsa dance to.

  77. muckthemuller

    Wish he had put out more stuff like this. Guess he was too busy inventing the future.
