Jackson, Michael - People Make The World Go Round Lyrics




People...
('Round and 'round and around...)
People make the world go 'round
('Round and 'round and around...)

Teachers on strike, no more school today
They want more money but the board won't pay
People
Everybody's talkin' 'bout ecology
The air's so polluted that it's hard to breathe
People

[Refrain]
But that's what makes the world go round
The ups and downs a carousel
Changing people's heads around
Go underground young men...
People make the world go round...

Old folks judge you by the clothes you wear
They'd swear you're a hippy if you have long hair
Young politicians fight for poverty
While people still cry for equality

[Refrain]
But that's what makes the world go round
The ups and downs a carousel
Changing people's heads around
Go underground young men...
People make the world go round...

[Instrumental]

[Refrain]
But that's what makes the world go round
The ups and downs a carousel
Changing people's heads around
Go underground young men...
People make the world go round...

    MJJFan3 you did an amazing compilation. Michael killed this cover. Sad his life took such a turn. His talent was unmatched.

  13. Moonwalker ForLife

    I love this song😪❤️

  14. Sarah Perez Cabrera

    Una buena cancion interpretada por el rey del pop en su niñez,que dichoso aquel que escucha su voz angelical que tenia.

  15. Myron Bledsoe

    The need to impress the white public led to his sporratic behavior and eventual death believe it or not IDC..

  16. BloodFacedBeeatch

    DA MOLESTORS MUSICAL PROWESS IS UNCANNY.

    Shae Hines

    your ignorance is comical

    BloodFacedBeeatch

    @Shae Hines STOP DENYING WHAT WE ALL NOW KNOW IS TRUTH. MJ WAS A RAPIST MANILULATOR WHO PROB WAS MOLESTED HIMSELF AS A CHILD. "OH NO DA SONGZ R RUINED!!!" FUCK OUTTA HERE!! WE LIVE IN A SICK SAD WORLD WHERS NOTHING IS QUITE AS IT SEEMS AND MONEY > HUMANZ. IF U HAVE ENOUGH MONEY U CAN RAPE/KILL/EAT HUMANS IF U LIKE. MONEY ALLOWS THIS.

    Paul William

    @BloodFacedBeeatch Jesus, you have extreme mental issues. First off, stop projecting your sick perverse fantasies on him and there is no evidence he was ever molested as a child so WTF are you talking about?? Secondly, why're you rambling like a fucken buffoon?? If you have evidence he is indeed a pedophile, present it from a factual, reliable source or STFU. Lastly, his money couldn't stop him from going to prison if they was actual evidence. No amount of money in the world can stop you from going to prison if child porn is in your possession. You really think he paid of Santa Barbara District Attorney, Santa Barbara Police Department, and the freaking FBI who were helping/investigating him?? Fuck you, you stupendous cockwomble 🤦🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️🖕🏿🖕🏿🖕🏿🖕🏿🖕🏿🖕🏿🖕🏿🖕🏿🖕🏿🖕🏿🖕🏿🖕🏿🖕🏿

    Paul William

    @BloodFacedBeeatch Plus, if you hate him so much, why talk about him?? Who gives so much energy/time to people they don't like?? Seems to me that your life is worthless and you're trolling for the sake of it. Pathetic 🤮🖕🏿🖕🏿🖕🏿

    BloodFacedBeeatch

    @Paul William I DONT HATE HIM. I'M INCAPABLE OF HATE. I'M AN INSTRUMENT OF TRUTH. U DONT NEED TO DROWN ME WITH SENSELESS DETAILS...U COULD SEE THE PEDOPHILIA IN MJS EYEZ. U HATE ME BECAUSE MJ DIDNT CHOOSE U TO SWALLOW HIS SUPERSTAR SPERM!! GO FIND A LIVING PEDOPHILE SUPERSTAR(OR NOT) TO SQUEEZE A SHOT DOWN UR FAT STUPID THROAT!!

  17. Annette Angiuli

  29. ALB LBA

    Beautiful Song!

  30. James B.

    The Jackson 5 did a great cover of this, but the Stylistics version had better instrumentals and rawwer/deeper vocals and lyrics. I give both versions an 8/10 A.

  31. Byruox Urptexy

    Poor kid...that money changed his whole life and skin color..

  32. ALP DIGITAL FILMWORKS

    What a Catch-22...Blessed with the talents of men three times his age, and the voice of an angel...all the fame and fortune anyone could ever want. The price tag? Your childhood. I just find consolation in the fact that he has to suffer this world no more...

  33. Kenni Wells

    He was such a cutie as a boy...

  34. Kenni Wells

    This version and Angela bofill's are beautiful.

  35. Mr. Cabo

    Have never heard this version before... it's a gem... I know i'm prolly gonna get grief for having Mike as my icon. It's all good

  36. Sapna Thomas

    Reality of the world who is listening to his words

  37. Adrian Yohanes Purnomo

    This is The Stylistics song.

  46. Kip Wonder

    favorite song of all time (hands down)

  47. Casey Ligon

    Such a magical sounding song!

  48. P 9213121

    His entire life served to teach us life lessons through music. His world, our world, we are all different, we are all special. He knew that... A genuine loss.

  49. Lasonya Tomlinson

    I have no words😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍💓💘💘💖💖💖

  50. Stacey Hernandez

    Westside connection y'all hahaha

  51. michele piteo

    A Genius boy ruined by an Ike Turner type father. He never fucked Michael up the bum because it would have been spoiling the goods but he was mean beyond measure with ambition and stole his childhood [listen to Ben] while his mother pretended not to notice and prayed to Jezus....Aint No Sunshine was a lament to the manhood he would loose

    Stephon

    He didn't fuck Michael in the ass, he let music executives and other men do it. Joe did sexually molest females tho. He wasn't a homosexual, and had no attraction to males. Joe raped Letoya and other female girls during the 1960s

  52. 1goldbaby

    He was so handsome with those pretty eyes and teeth...He just didn't know it..

    Kiona McNutt

    1goldbaby Yeah, he didn't know it because he probably wasn't told.

  53. 1goldbaby

    That. Legendary. Voice...Never. Will be another..but. lol. Zach. Comes close .

  70. Supreme Ali

    grew up with MJ since around 1970.  In 3rd grade our teacher said whoever finishes their assignment and listen to the record player with headphones.  so I was the first one done, so I sat down by myself and put on the headphones.  I had no idea what Jackson 5 was.  First thing I heard was the intro to I'll Be There, then the song.  I got a complete head rush!  My mind was BLOWN!  My eyes were wide open and I looked around the class like I saw a ghost!  Nobody saw me but I felt I was no longer on earth!  I was completely GONE!   I was breathing so dam hard!  I listened to the entire album and got up and felt like I was on another planet.  From then on I was ALWAYS the first one done.  First to learn good spelling, good writing, times tables, etc.   MJ really helped me be a fascinating student.  Little did I know that the Jackson 5 cartoon was around the corner.  I played little league baseball from 9 til age 18.  Jackson 5 songs were constantly in my mind growing up.  so amazing growing up with such beautiful loving innocent music, instead of these youngstas today growing up with nigga nigga bitch bitch.  Niggas hate me cause I'm balling and talk shit.  :(

    Robert Moore

    Supreme Ali This story is amazing. Thank you for sharing

    Supreme Ali

    thanks.  it's all true.  My growing up from age 8 was tremendously affected by Jackson 5 albums and their cartoon.  They're music was happy, soulful, and about love, not selfishness, hatred, materialism.  So that's what I developed into.  Nowadays music is so much about hatred, selfishness.  Glad I grew up with Jackson 5.

    WORD UPP!!

  90. Richard D. Smith (RDS)- Someek, Ent.

    Very NICE.

  91. dr troy turner

    I like Mike's part but think the fake 5th dimension is detracting. detracting and distraction. Less is more. Studio heads must've been worried about young Mike carrying it. They shouldn't have been. As good as Stevie's music box version is, I could in NY mind hear hin doing the bear version ever with his nornal voice and delivery. Maybe the genius didn't want to do his friends dirty by eclipsing them on their own song.

  92. Michael Cooper

    Truly missed brother.

  93. sarah anderson

    dis was da time of da Osmands also and Donny had nothing on Mike!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is when you knew Micheal was a artist to reckon with..

  96. Brigham Gardner

    When I see this video montage, can't help but get a bit misty...both for what he gave us, and for what he might have given us. "Of all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these...'It might have been'".

    Chris Wilson

    Brigham Gardner . Me too. I felt like I lost a family member when he passed. I grew up with his songs.
