Jackson, Michael - Little Susie Lyrics

Somebody killed little Susie
The girl with the tune
Who sings in the daytime at noon
She was there screaming
Beating her voice in her doom
But nobody came to her soon...

A fall down the stairs
Her dress torn
Oh the blood in her hair...
A mystery so sullen in air
She lie there so tenderly
Fashioned so slenderly
Lift her with care,
Oh the blood in her hair...

Everyone came to see
The girl that now is dead
So blind stare the eyes in her head...
And suddenly a voice from the crowd said
This girl lived in vain
Her face bear such agony, such strain...

But only the man from next door
Knew Little Susie and how he cried
As he reached down
To close Susie's eyes...
She lie there so tenderly
Fashioned so slenderly
Lift her with care
Oh the blood in her hair...

It was all for God's sake
For her singing the tune
For someone to feel her despair
To be damned to know hoping is dead and you're doomed
Then to scream out
And nobody's there...

She knew no one cared...

Father left home, poor mother died
Leaving Susie alone
Grandfather's soul too had flown...
No one to care
Just to love her
How much can one bear
Rejecting the needs in her prayers...

Neglection can kill
Like a knife in your soul
Oh it will
Little Susie fought so hard to live...
She lie there so tenderly
Fashioned so slenderly
Lift her with care
So young and so fair

  12. Bojana P

    "Neglection can kill like a knife in your soul" this is so trueee he really was a voice for the voiceless, he was neglected as a child so he was able to relate to children so much expecialy to ones who were neglected by their parents as he was

  13. Tak- E Taf- E Films

    This song made me 😭

  14. Cathy Kim

    Heard this song for the first time. It was very different from his other songs. I can imagine MJ being devastated and hurt by this girls abuse and murder. MJ really wanted to change the world into a better place. His voice is so angelic but the lyrics really is sad and shocking. MJ was a lovely genius expressing soo much through music. Miss you with great respect and love.
    Michael Jackson =LOVE & Greatness

    One of the greatest things about Michael Jackson was his selfless character and his great ability to feel empathy for others this is something always admired - even as rich and popular as he was he still gave and helped and felt for peoples sufferings. What a King.

  61. Spoty The Cheetah


  62. sahar hassan

    I used to listen to this song when I was a kid, I didn’t understand what is it about but I used to feel sad when I listen to it

  85. Sylvi aus DE

    Sehr traurig und tragisch der Song :(
    MJ stimme ist noch schöner bei diesem Stiel des Liedes ❤

  86. Moonwalker Life

    Michael took a turn didn't he?

  87. - Buehmann

    This song always creeps me out. If it wasn't about a true story, it (part of the first verse) would be about something I dreamed about two years before this was released.

    A fall down the stairs
    Her dress torn
    Oh the blood in her hair...

  88. Princesswithclass

    Damn....michael jackson is there anything he could’nt do? Sooo talented i miss you

  89. Kaelabear 2002

    I told my friend, about this song. And she was like woah crazxy

  90. Naomi Lapaglia


  91. jackson passionn

    I'm here because of Michael Jackson. Anyone?

    Antonija Senekovic

    I'am too... because of Michael. His voice is from haeven.❤

  92. Dan Fernandes

    If ever a song could prove someone isn't a sycophant, this is it. How many child rapists go on to then show compassion for a child that was raped and then died? I doubt very many. Where there is money involved, you have your answer. Someone who was abused would not only remember it (lol) they would't give two shits about money, all they would care about is justice. The documentary was released about Jackson (I say documentary but it wasn't two-sided) on the same day Harvey Weinstein case was heard. Anyone recall what was the result!? I rest my case.

  93. Sarah R.

    Slick move dude

  94. harmony jade Jackson

    This si so sad

  95. Army _28


  96. Army _28

    The meaning behind the song is about a girl who was hated and so she got killed

  97. amethystangel212

    Immediately came here after reading about La’Rayah Davis
