"P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)" as written by James E. Ingram and Quincy Jones....
Where did you come from lady
And ooh won't you take me there
Right away won't you baby
Tendoroni 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 want to 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 want to love you (P-Y-T)
Pretty young thing
You need some lovin' (T-L-C)
Tender lovin' care
And I'll take you there

(Anywhere you want to 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 that I've got

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

Pretty young things, repeat after me
I said,
Na na na
Na na na na
Na na na na
Na na na
Na na na
I said na na na na na
Na na na na na
I'll take you there

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

    General Commentthe undertonese in the song are lustful..hmm..
    or then its only me and i have a dirty mind.
    did michael jackson write any of his songs, im sure he did, fuck its annoying how people dont really appreciate his talent all they fucking talk about is his moonwalk, his white skin and his never never land...
    michael has some crazy vocal skills that one like usher or any pop shit can match, he's pretty damn soulful if you ask me...

    General CommentAccording to Wikipedia, Michael wrote this song as a jam, and Quincy Jones ran with it and, I assume, totally rewrote it to the point where it was no where close to Michael's original idea, b/c the song is credited to Jones, and not Jackson.

    General CommentAlthough the meaning of the song is obvious, can you lot actually COMMENT on the song. Not Michael Jackson who is a legend did NOT molest no children. All you lot are hypocrites, now that he's sadly died, you al of a sudden love him. It makes me sick

    General CommentMy favorite M.J. tune. In fact, on my I.R.S. form I use this acronym in "joint filing". It gets sent back to me every time.

    General CommentThe demo is pretty cool, with different lyrics. It must be the original version penned by Mike that didn't make it to the album.
