Michael Jackson - Shout Lyrics




Ignorance of people purchasing diamonds and necklaces
And barely able to keep the payments up on their lessons
And enrolled in a class and don't know who the professor is
How low people go for the dough and make a mess of things?

Kids are murdering other kids for the fun of it
Instead of using their mind or their fist, they put a gun in it
Wanna be a part of a clique, don't know who's running it
Tragedy on top of tragedy you know it's killing me.

So many people in agony, this shouldn't have to be
Too busy focusing on ourselves and not His Majesty
There has to be some type of change for this day and age
We gotta rearrange and flip the page

Living encased like animals and cannibals
Eating each other alive just to survive the nine to five
Every single day is trouble while we struggle and strive
Peace of mind's so hard to find

I wanna shout, throw my hands up and shout
What's this madness all about?
All this makes me wanna shout
You know it makes me wanna shout
Throw my hands up and shout
What's this madness all about?
All this makes me wanna shout, c'mon now

Problems, complications and accusations
Dividing the nations and races of empty faces, a war is taking place
No substitution for restitution, the only solution for peace
Is increasing the height of your spirituality

Masses of minds are shrouded, clouded visions
Deceptions and indecision, no faith or religion, how we're living
The clock is ticking, the end is coming, there'll be no warning
But we live to see the dawn

How can we preach, when all we make this world to be
Is a living hell torturing our minds?
We all must unite, to turn darkness to light
And the love in our hearts will shine

We're disconnected from love, we're disrespecting each other
Whatever happened to protecting each other
Poisoned your body and your soul for a minute of pleasure
But the damage that you've done is gonna last forever

Babies being born in the world already drug addicted and afflicted
Family values are contradicted, ashes to ashes and dust to dust
The pressure is building and I've had enough

I wanna shout, throw my hands up and shout
What's this madness all about?
All this makes me wanna shout
You know it makes me wanna shout
Throw my hands up and shout
What's this madness all about?
All this makes me wanna shout, c'mon now

    Why does the music industry not have common sense and just release things bit by bit sometimes. Why wasn't Shout just on the original track listing?

  11. Liam Cahill

    The chorus for this is like 'Shout' by The Isley Brothers from 1959 :0

  17. Emmanuel Mosoti

  31. Heather Lewellen

    I think this is the first time I've heard mj rap, so it was definitely a new experience. Between the rapping and the beat, I can't understand what he's saying. Am I the only one who feels this way?

    JayTooSavy

  34. Oong The Last Airbender

    lol cant even hear the lyrics

  35. The MJJ Archive Channel

    I think it is a early version of 2000 watts

    Jeff Jeffson

    The MJJ Archive Channel They do sound similar, but no. They are both entirely different songs.

  36. Jessa Loreto

    Don't ya think Mike be mumbling the first part so we research the lyrics and be educated?

  37. Kameron Petsche

    Eminem who?

  38. Michel Banen

    I found a sealed 2-track of the Cry CD yesterday with this track. Never heard it before and I LOVE it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Emmanuel Mosoti

    Would have been torn between keeping it sealed and playing it.

  39. Applehead BeLIEve

    Michael Jackson should make a new album and put this song on it

    Applehead BeLIEve

    @Jeff Jeffson he's still alive

    Heather Lewellen

    @Applehead BeLIEve I wish he were--that would be awesome. I respectfully disagree with you, for many reasons. Why? My main reason is his kids. He would never intentionally abandon and orphan his kids. They, as well as others, witnessed his death. I'm not sure why people would lie about his death, as that is reprehensible. Maybe you have some firsthand information you can share? I'd be interested in hearing your p.o.v.

    Applehead BeLIEve

    @Heather Lewellen His children are included in the Death Hoax. He faked his death. All three of his children gives us clues.

    Heather Lewellen

    @Applehead BeLIEve Has he been spotted in public somewhere? If so, when and where? And what clues have been given to us by his kids?

    0:49 7u7, love this song!!

  42. JayOneOfTheChosenOnes

    Michael Was hella Woke ..... stop play with this man , this is why they wanted him die , he had influence and he was woke as fuck

  43. the lost child

    Please don't judge me
    Try to understand me
    Is this Michael Jackson's voice

    Shady Jackson

    yeah, in real life he had a lower voice and he used it more in the Invincible album especially 2000 Watts

    Heather Lewellen

    @Shady Jackson Did he ever mention why he didn't use his lower register more often?

  44. Larrence Playz_YT

    Why is all the best mj songs unreleased

  45. MJTat Prauber

    Why didn't I know this song before now, it's great!

  46. Noah Jackson 23

    Hey can I use some of ur projects for my Upcoming Dynamic World Tour - Michael Jackson? I'll put ur videos in the description

  47. Nóra Kovács

    HOLY SHIIIIIT! This is amazing! Wow

  48. e h h hhh 3d

    Wow look what i found: refrain is very similar to the beginning of "You make me wanna shout" - Isley Brothers from 50'.

  49. Gimme Some Pineapples

    First time listening to this song and- oh my gaaaawd - yesss Michael😍

  50. Daniel Jones - East London Blues

    should've been on Invincible, no doubt. some of his rawest lyrics ever.

  51. amree andromeda

    "Monster", the song from the album "michael".

    ltd1991

    That's fake

  52. amree andromeda

    Do you have the "monster" demo.

    Pame Diaz

    The Monster song is fake, not sung by Michael Jackson, sung by a double. It was part of a lawsuit where Sony acknowledged that the song was fake 😕. Also the song "Breaking News" and "Keep your head up" on that disc are fake. Those three 😉😊 👍🏻

    Jordi Adsuar

    @Pame Diaz There are one, it was recorded in the Era Invincible. There's a snippet in youtube

    Pame Diaz

    @Jordi Adsuar Yes, I know. But that's not his voice. It's a matter of paying attention. When the Michael album came out in 2010, many of us realized that. 😉☝🏻

    Shady Jackson

    @Pame Diaz also "Keep Your Head Up" and "Breaking News" are fake, correct?

    Pame Diaz

    @Shady Jackson Yes , those are 😉😊

  53. Jonathan Benjamin

    1:29 best part

  54. Sarah Harrison

    Yes! The wonderful chorus!!

  55. Agustin Bv

    Álbum?

  56. Pame Diaz

    I'm surprised. 😯😀 He must have added this song because it's different, I really like all the album but this would have made a difference in terms of rhythm, style and energy. Mike, 26 years ago following you, and still surprise me!💜
    I loved your channel, I found it 3 days ago Thank you very much for all this! 🙆🏻‍♀️👐 I'll keep checking

  57. Dom

    he should've rapped more often

  58. Anderson Kinloch

    2:28 so nice.

  59. Nahimana Marat

    I discovered something new today lolz

  64. •BlacKCoopa •

    Let’s just admit it he’s good at everything parenting ,singing,rapping,dancing,acting

  65. jacksonmwatson

    WOAH! I’ve never heard this one before, this is some good stuff. MJ really was the King of every...single...genre.

    Heather Lewellen

    I think the only genre he didn't cover was opera. I wonder what it would sound like if he sang opera.

    Jesus Christ • 2020 years ago

    Heather Lewellen he honestly could’ve probably killed it. He has the voice i feel

  66. Jack Warner

    Shout and Blue Gangsta would of made Invincible one of the greatest.

    Shady Jackson

    I agree definitely. It would have changed it up a bit.

  67. Savage KingX

    Damn this song actually helped me play games better, thx MJ

  68. Elga 5ko

    Sounds like 2000 watts

  77. Sky Of The Universe

    This song reminds me of Cannonball by Savage Garden

  78. Powerage

    This would be sooo much better if you could hear his vocals /: gah...

  79. Sven Nelson

    *Shout* was only available on the b-side of the *UK Single Cry.*

    factsdon'tliepeopledo

    Can you get n instrumental version of shout

    Heather Lewellen

    So that's why I didn't know this song existed until now. I live in America, and wish we'd had this song on our "Invincible" album. Not sure why it was only issued to the U.K.

    Cristobal Hernandez

    i have a french single of "cry" and have "shout" too

    Sven Nelson

    @Cristobal Hernandez Thank you very much for the Information

    MJ Song and Album Leaks

    I own a digital copy of the single but I live in the U.S.

  80. Matthew Mcmullen

    Is This a rap song?

    Vitalii Bulatov

    Yeah this rap song

  81. F.JHONY

    this song was perfect to invisible

  82. George Jackson

    Isn't this a cover for The isely brothers? If not still a good song by Michael Jackson I love this rock-rap style song.

  83. Chukitita M.C.

    They gotta do a demos album

  84. Francisco J. TOVAR B.

    You can barely understand what he's saying. I sincerely feel that most tracks of Invincible are overly produced.

  85. Ricardo Romero

    New goal in life, sing this song :)

  86. Yael Moonwalker Chefwalimyck

    Shout was released, on the "Cry" Single

    Sven Nelson

    C'est correct

  87. D ikki

    I found this today. Best Song Ever. MJ FOREVER <3

  88. Ashley. Pavia.

    Michael Jackson
    King pop

  89. Viewer De L'ombre

    How do you know that "You are my life" replaced this song and not a another ? Thanks

    noname nobody

    It was Between the two but mike wanted You Are My Life cause it was for his children and he wanted them to hear it

    Саша Лобанов

    @Viewer De L'ombre because “You Are My Life” was recorded in September 2001, and “Shout” was replaced by that song on the last moment!

    נטלי שלי

    This should have replaced CRY in my opinion

    brrA7

    @נטלי שלי Nooo cry is amazing. Shout should replace The lost children :)

  90. Ariel Luzi

    Stupid Jackson! This song is AMAZING!!!!

    Sven Nelson

    Hahaha its great yes.
    Was replaced by *"You Are My Life"* - even Greater!
    So he wasn't stupid haha

    Ariel Luzi
