"Cheater" as written by Gregory Phillinganes and Michael Joe Jackson....
You know I work too hard for this kind of pay
I wrote a letter for the ghetto of the CIA
I don't care a jack all about what you do
Just put your dime on the line, girl, 'cause I owe you

Somebody said, get up and stand
On how you feel
One blow to the head is all you need
I ain't taking it, you

Cheater
Boy, you better go an get yourself some attitude
I know your name on the game isn't "I owe you"
You're telling me that your coming to a compromise
You're smiling at me while you're stealing right before my eyes

Somebody said, get up and stand
On how you feel
One blow to the head is all you need
I ain't taking it, you

Cheater
I break my backbone, baby
I start to give it up
Life is an aggravator
It all starts piling up
I broke my radiator
I fixed the telephone
I break my limbs, my body
So don't you ever call

I don't care a jack all about what you do
Just sign your name on the line, baby, "I owe you"
You are a

Cheater
Somebody said, get up and stand
On how you feel
One blow to the head is all you need
I ain't taking it,

Cheater
Cheater
Cheater

    General CommentVery very underated Jackson song. Acutally i think it's because it's very not him. The lyrics are very ghetto'ish and cool.

    "Just put ya dime on the line
    baby, cos i own you, (ho!)"

    That line for example. The song is great, though!
