Songinfo

"Wanna be startin' somethin'" was in 1982 de eerste track van het album, maar pas het vierde nummer wat werd uitgegeven als single, na "The Girl Is Mine", "Billie Jean" en "Beat It".

Oorspronkelijk zou het nummer al op het album "Off the Wall" staan; het was dan ook geschreven in 1979. Toch werd het niet opgenomen tot Thriller uit 1982.

Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’ werd vaak opgevoerd door Michael als het het openingsnummer tijdens concerten; het is dan ook tijdens elke tournee gespeeld.

Trivia

Wist je dat? Het gedeelte Mama-se, mama-sa, ma-ma-coo-sa werd in 2007 als sample gebruikt in het nummer "Don't Stop The Music" van Rihanna.

Songtekst

I met her on the walk way
staring as she walked pass
she looked back at me side ways and said
i cant help but to ask
I Said You Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'
You Got To Be Startin' Somethin'
I Said You Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'
You Got To Be Startin' Something

we end up going back to her place
wish i could tell you what i saw
the sexiest women in a neclace shade
we hit off until the mornning
Until you hear her say

(AKON)
ama ma se,
Ma ma sa, ma ma coo sa
Ma ma se, ma ma sa,
Ma ma coo sa (10)X

VERSE 1

(AKON)
Billie Jean Is Always Talkin'
When Nobody Else Is Talkin'

Sayin' You Just Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'

Too low to get under.(YEA YEA)
You're stuck in the middle(YEA YEA)
And the pain is thunder.(YEA YEA)

(MJ)
You love to pretend that you're good
When you're always up to no good
You really can't make him hate her
So your tongue became a razor
Someone's always tryin' to start my baby crying
Talkin', Squealin', lyin you got my baby crying

CHORUS

(AKON)
I said you wanna be startin' somethin',
You got to be startin' somethin'.
I said you wanna be startin' somethin',
You got to be startin' somethin'

It's too high to get over,(YEA YEA)
Too low to get under.(YEA YEA)
You're stuck in the middle (YEA YEA)
And the pain is thunder.(YEA YEA)
It's too high to get over, (YEA YEA)
Too low to get under.(YEA YEA)
You're stuck in the middle (YEA YEA)
And the pain is thunder(YEA YEA)
