"Remember the Time" as written by Michael Jackson, Bernard Belle and Teddy Riley....
Do you remember
When we fell in love
We were so young and innocent then
Do you remember
How it all began
It just seemed like heaven so why did it end?

Do you remember
Back in the fall
We'd be together all day long
Do you remember
Us holding hands
In each other's eyes we'd stare
(Tell me)

Do you remember the time
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time
When we first met girl
Do you remember the time
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time

Do you remember
How we used to talk
(Ya know)
We'd stay on the phone at night till dawn
Do you remember
All the things we said like
I love you so I'll never let you go

Do you remember
Back in the Spring
Every morning birds would sing
Do you remember
Those special times
They'll just go on and on
In the back of my mind

Do you remember the time
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time
When we first met girl
Do you remember the time
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time

Those sweet memories
Will always be dear to me
And girl no matter what was said
I will never forget what we had
Now baby!

Do you remember the time
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time
When we first met
Do you remember the time
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time

Do you remember the time
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time
When we first met
Do you remember the time
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time

Remember the times
Ooh
Remember the times
Do you remember girl
Remember the times
On the phone you and me
Remember the times
Till dawn, two or three
What about us girl

Remember the times
Do you, do you, do you, do you, do you
Remember the times
In the park, on the beach
Remember the times
You and me in Spain
Remember the times
What about, what about

Remember the times
Ooh, in the park
Remember the times
After dark
Do you, do you, do you
Remember the times
Do you, do you, do you, do you
Remember the times
Yeah yeah

    General CommentThe song by itself is about a guy telling a girl to recall their good memories. But if you watch the video, the subliminal message is asking us to "remember the time" of the zenith of Africa which was the ancient Egypt civilisation -- people tend to differentiate the two and forget that Egypt is part of Africa. He is obviously pro-black, despite what the media says. Just my two cents.

    General Commentthis song is about remembering a great relationship. i believe it's a guy who just got dumped by his girl because maybe she was thinking it was going bad and this song is about reminding her all the great things that happened in their relationship. possibly trying to find ways to keep this relationship to last?

    whether i'm right or wrong, this song is great. may you rest in peace, michael jackson<3

    Song MeaningAccording to Michael's brother Jermaine in his book, this song was about Michael's relationship with Diana Ross.

    "...As for how intimate they truly became, this is where his music - nearly always semi auto biographical - should speak for itself. Go listen to the wistful lyrics of "Remember the Time" released in 1992. That song was, as Michael told me, written with Diana Ross in mind; the one great love that, as far he was concerned, escaped him."

    Source: You Are Not Alone: Michael, Through A Brother's Eyes (Jermaine Jackson, 2011)

    The video had Michael playing as a prince (himself) having an affair with the Queen of Egypt (Diana) behind the King's back (either Berry Gordy or Arne Naess, Diana's husband). He's also reminiscing the glory days of Ancient Egypt in the video (to signify the the glory days of him and Diana being the 'King and Queen' of showbiz coined by Ebony magazine back in 1982) and is begging the Queen to 'remember the time' when they were together.

    So it's safe to say the song was a nostalgic ode to his past relationship with her, and he wrote 'dedicated with love to Diana Ross' on the 1992 single cover to hammer things even further that the song was meant for her and only her.
