"Working Day And Night" as written by and Michael Jackson....
Ooh my honey
You got me workin' day and night
Ooh my sugar
You got me workin' day and night

Scratch my shoulder
It's aching, make it feel alright
When this is over
Lovin' you will be so right

I often wonder if lovin' you
Will be tonight
But what is love girl
If I'm always out of sight (ooh)

(That's why)
You got me workin' day and night
And I'll be workin'
From sun up to midnight

You got me workin' workin' day and night

You say that workin'
Is what a man's supposed to do
But I say it ain't right
If I can't give sweet love to you
(Ah)

I'm tired of thinkin'
Of what my life's supposed to be (well)
Soon enough darlin'
This love will be reality (ah ah)

How can you live girl
'Cause love for us was meant to be (well)
Then you must be seein'
Some other guy instead of me (ooh)

(That's why)
You got me workin' day and night
And I'll be workin'
From sun up to midnight

You got me workin' workin' day and night
(Hold on)
You got me workin' workin' day and night
(I'm so tired tired now)
You got me workin' workin' day and night
(Hold on)
You got me workin' workin' day and night
(Hoo, hoo, hoo)

You say that workin'
Is what a man's supposed to do
But I say it ain't right
If I can't give sweet love to you
(Well, ah)

How can you live girl
'Cause love for us was meant to be (well)
Then you must be seein' (woo)
Some other guy instead of me (ooh)

(That's why)
You got me workin' day and night (I don't understand it)
And I'll be workin'
From sun up to midnight

You got me workin' workin' day and night
(Hold on)
You got me workin' workin' day and night
(I'm so tired tired now)
You got me workin' workin' day and night
You got me workin' workin' day and night

You got me workin' workin' day and night
(Girl)
You got me workin' workin' day and night
(I'm so tired tired now)
You got me workin' workin' day and night
You got me workin' workin' day and night
(How can I get to you)

    My OpinionOh this song is just pure bliss!
    What I love most about this song is the noises that Michael makes...just so hot and so necessary!
    I really wish he would of done a music video for this one, oh wee, what a treat that would of been!
    Not trying to sound inappropriate...but, Micheal. I would have had you working all night.
    Oh that was bad of me, but this song is just so sexual and funky (in a very good way!).

    General CommentI expected more than just one comment on this, considering it's a classic from his first solo record. well I'm not gonna get too into since I have no one to really discuss it with, lol, but here's a shot in the dark: she's making him work all night so she can have an excuse to see somebody else? & clearly, he's not happy about it.

    My InterpretationI agree with the last comment. In the beginning he's telling her how great loving her is going to be once he's done working. Then he goes into saying how he's not sure if he'll ever get to because he's constantly "working". In the refrain section it seems as if he doesn't mind working for her but then as the song continues he starts to question her reasons for keeping him busy. By the second half of the song he seems kind of annoyed by the situation and is asking her "how can you live girl?..."

    I take that as "how are you getting by if I'm like this?" Thats when he just comes out and says you must be seeing someone else and that's why you have me working like this.

    General CommentThis is a clever song, he sings how he works so much that he can't have sex with her but he's also wondering why is she making him work so hard is she cheating on him with someone else because he doesn't know how she lives without seeing him.

    it's so funky and i love singing it out loud.
