Michael Jackson - Pretty Young Thing

Originally written by Michael with Greg Phillinganes, but totally re-done to a more up-tempo beat by Quincy Jones and James Ingram. It was recorded by Michael for his album, Thriller, issued in December 1982.

Sisters Janet and La Toya were the 'pretty young things' singing 'na na na' back at Michael.

It charted at no.10 on the Hot 100 and no.46 on the R&B singles chart in the US, and no.11 in the UK making it Michael's sixth Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 from six releases from Thriller - a new record from one album.

A demo version by Michael was sampled by Monica on her single, All Eyes On Me - charted at no.32 on the R&B chart in the US. "We used vocals from the song that didn't make the Thriller album," said Rodney Jerkins. "He (Michael) had more vocals and ad-libs that were never heard, and we used the ones that were not heard."

New vocals ('get it on, get it on'), recorded by Michael circa 2000, were included on the track featured on the Japanese version of Monica's album, which was cancelled in the US/Europe.

A demo, recorded between April and October 1982, was included on Michael's box-set, The Ultimate Collection, issued in November 2004.

Pretty Young Thing - Lyrics

Where did you come from lady
And ooh won't you take me there
Right away won't you baby
Tenderoni you've got to be
Spark my nature
Sugar fly with me

Don't you know now
Is the perfect time
We can make it right
Hit the city lights
Then tonight ease the lovin' pain
Let me take you to the max

I wanna love you (P.Y.T.)
Pretty young thing
You need some lovin' (T.L.C.)
And I'll take you there

I wanna love you (P.Y.T.)
Pretty young thing
You need some lovin' (T.L.C.)
Tender lovin' care
I'll take you there

Anywhere you wanna go

Nothin' can stop this burnin'
Desire to be with you
Gotta get to you baby
Won't you come, it's emergency
Cool my fire yearnin'
Honey, come set me free

Don't you know now is the perfect time
We can dim the lights
Just to make it right
In the night
Hit the lovin' spot
I'll give you all I've got

I wanna love you (P.Y.T.)
Pretty young thing
You need some lovin' (T.L.C.)
Tender lovin' care
And I'll take you there

I wanna love you (P.Y.T.)
Pretty young thing
You need some lovin' (T.L.C.)
Tender lovin' care
I'll take you there

I wanna love you (P.Y.T.)
Pretty young thing
You need some lovin' (T.L.C.)
Tender lovin' care
I'll take you there

Pretty young things, repeat after me
(Michael) I said na na na
(P.Y.T.'S) na na na
(Michael) I said na na na na
(P.Y.T.'s) na na na na
(Michael) I said na na na
(P.Y.T.'s) na na na
(Michael) na na na na na
(P.Y.T.'s) na na na na na
(Michael) I wanna take you there
