The Jacksons - Things I Do for You

* Produced by The Jacksons
* Composed by Michael Michael Jackson,
Tito Jackson, Marlon Jackson, Randy Jackson
and Jackie Jackson

This was recorded by the Jacksons for their Destiny album, issed in December 1978.

Also released as the B-sides of Lovely One in the Uk and Heartbreak Hotel in the US.

It was performed by the Jacksons on American Bandstand, Soul Train and on their own Midnight Special TV show in 1979, and during a Destiny Tour concert screened on BBC2 in the UK.

It was also performed by Michael during his Bad World Tour - one such concert screened on Nippon TV in Japan.

Live recordings were released on an album (Live!) and as a single, some with a promo picture sleeve in the UK (no USA release) - failed to chart. This version was also issued as the B-side of Michael's Thriller in the UK.


Things I Do for You - Lyrics

People all over the world
Are the same everywhere I go
I give into this
I give into that
Everyday it bothers me so

Am I in a bad situation
People take me to the extreme
Am I being used
I just need a clue
I don't know which way to go

So I take my problems to a doctor
So he can check it out
(He don't know)
I take it to a palm reader
But she canít read my hand
(She don't know)
(Five minutes later)
I start to understand
And I start screaming
And shouting and acting mad
No one can help me but myself
But I gave everything

It's the things I do for you
In return do the same for me
It's the things I do for you
In return do the same for me

Always wanting something for nothing
Especially what they don't deserve
Reaching in my pocket
I just gotta stop it
Though they got a lot of nerve

Am I in a bad situation
People take me to the extreme
They don't use rejection
So I need protection
To keep my equity

So I take my problems to a doctor
So he can check it out
(He don't know)
I take it to a palm reader
But she canít read my hand
(She don't know)
(Five minutes later)
I start to understand
And I start screaming
And shouting and acting mad
No one could help me but myself
And I gave everything I had

It's the things I do for you
In return do the same for me
It's the things I do for you
In return do the same for me
Check it over

(It's the things I do for you)
(In return do the same for me)
(It's the things I do for you)
(In return do the same for me)
Donít you hear the sound
People going round
This music going down
All around the line
(It's the things I do for you)
(In return do the same for me)
(It's the things I do for you)
(In return do the same for me)
Canít you see, canít you see
This thing is going down
Canít you just
People going wild
All around, yeah, yeah
