"You Rock My World" as written by Michael Jackson, Fred Jerkins Iii, Rodney Jerkins, Lashawn Daniels, Sean Carter and Nora Payne....
Ho, oh

My life will never be the same
'Cause girl, you came and changed
The way I walk
The way I talk

I cannot explain the things I feel for you
But girl, you know it's true
Stay with me, fulfill my dreams
And I'll be all you'll need

Oh, oh, oh, oh, ooh, it feels so right (Girl)
I've searched for the perfect love all my life (All my life)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, ooh, it feels like I (Like I)
Have finally found her perfect love is mine
(See, I finally found, come on, girl)

You rocked my world, you know you did
And everything I own I give (You rocked my world)
The rarest love who'd think I'd find
Someone like you to come by (You rocked my world)

You rocked my world, you know you did (Girl)
And everything I own I give (I want you, girl)
The rarest love who'd think I'd find
Someone like you to call mine

In time I knew that love would bring
This happiness to me
I tried to keep my sanity
I waited patiently

Girl, you know it seems
My life is so complete
A love that's true because of you
Keep doing what you do

Oh, oh, oh, oh, who'd think that I (Oh)
Have finally found the perfect love I searched for all
my life (Searched for all my life)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, who'd think I'd find
(Whoa, oh, oh)
Such a perfect love that's so right (Whoa, girl)

You rocked my world, you know you did
(Come on, come on, come on, come on)
And everything I own I give
The rarest love who'd think I'd find (Girl)
Someone like you to call mine (You rocked my world)

You rocked my world (You rocked my world),
you know you did
And everything I own I give (Girl, girl, girl)
The rarest love who'd think I'd find
Someone like you to call mine (Girl)

You rocked my world, you know you did (Oh)
And everything I own I give (You rocked my world)
The rarest love who'd think I'd find
Someone like you to call mine

You rocked my world (Oh...), you know you did
And everything I own I give (To rock my world)
The rarest love who'd think I'd find
Someone like you to call mine

Girl, I know that this is love
I felt the magic all in the air
And girl, I'll never get enough
That's why I always have to have you here, hoo

You rocked my world (You rocked my world),
you know you did
And everything I own I give
(Look what you did to me, baby, yeah)
The rarest love who'd think I'd find
Someone like you to call mine (You rocked my world)

You rocked my world, you know you did
(Know you did, baby)
And everything I own I give
('Cause you rocked my world)
The rarest love who'd think I'd find (Hoo, hoo)
Someone like you to call mine

(You rocked my world)
You rocked my world, you know you did
(The way you talk to me, the way you're lovin' me)
(The way you give it to me)

You rocked my world, you know you did
(Give it to me)
(Yeah, yeah, yeah...yeah...ooh)
You rocked my world (You rocked my world),
you know you did
(You rocked my world, you rocked my world)

(Come on, girl) You rocked my world (Come on, girl),
you know you did
(Baby, baby, baby)
And everything I own I give
The rarest love who'd think I'd find
Someone like you to call mine

You rocked my world, you know you did
And everything I own I give
The rarest love who'd think I'd find
Someone like you to call mine

    General CommentPoor Michael, he won't be back after all :-(

    Anyways, with Music Channels playing Michael's music 24-7 this song instantly came back to my mind, especially because I recall that time (2001) when he was releasing this new song and video... It's a mild song, not too special, but groovy enough to grab my attention and especially, as a pop song should do, cheer me up, make me move my feet...He knew how to deliver pop music, even though it wasn't his most distinctive work it kept part of his old self (and that was more than enough). I loved the dancing part too :-( Part of our childhood and adolescence will be buried with MJ and all he meant to our generations...

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite Michael jackson songs. Say what you want about the guy, but he knows how to write music. Sure it didn't gain as much popularity (due to the label dispute), but it doesn't mean it wasn't good. I loved it, loved the video, and the dancing in it was awesome :)

    Anyways, say what you want but
    THE KING OF POP IS BACK!

    He's breaking records again! We love you Michael Jackson!

    General CommentGood song Mike. Chris Tucker had me laughing hard in this video when he was dancing. Thank God Mike left behind music and videos, because he is the only artist that left me in awe when he performed. We lost a really important fixture in music, what do we have left in pop music, Brittany, oh God help us.

    General CommentI really don't like this song. The video was a little strange. In this video, his face was very mutilated already...I feel so bad for him because he was such a great performer..and we can never have the old michael jackson back! But in the video, he and a friend liked a girl, he was going after her. She was part of some kind of gang or something...at the end, the building blew up and he saw the girl he was singing to. He told her he was glad she was safe. Not his best...

    General CommentI just like the spoken part at the beginning. And as it turns out, Michael has a nice deep speaking voice. (Take that haters!!!)
