Probably a common one, but thought Smooth Criminal was asking Eddie if he was OK :D

When I first listened to "Who Is It", I thought I heard a line like "Don't you judge Michael Bush 'cause I'm lying to myself", and that had me wondering for quite some time XD
Actually it's "Don't you judge of my composure / ‘Cause I'm lying to myself"

In Billie Jean I remember a radio station saying it sounded like MJ was saying The Chair is not my son
It's The Kid is not my son

Keep on like a porn star, Don’t stop till you get it up’


As opposed to the actual version, which is ‘Keep on with the force Don’t stop, Don’t stop ‘till you get enough’ – some people have dirty minds!

No, he is singing Dom Sheldon (the song is called D.S.), but we all know he meant Tom Sneddon.

I must understand Michael quite well, because I've never really had too much trouble knowing what he was saying in his lyrics.

Actually no. He clearly sings Tom Sneddon. - ONLY because he wanted to avoid legal battles etc. did he call the song D.S. - and only because of this - the lyrics is in the HIStory booklet. - I think it is the only song that has lyrics in the booklet. - And that was to avoid a lawsuit. - But no doubt he says Tom Sneddon very clearly in the song.

In ‘D.S.’, Michael Jackson sings ‘Tom Sneddon’ (the real name of the district attorney), not ‘Dom Sheldon’.

He even sings his full name (‘Thomas Sneddon’) at a certain point.

If the song had a completely different lyrical theme, then it would have had more appeal to his fans.

The lyrics of ’Earth Song’ and ‘Childhood’ are also printed in the ‘HIStory’ booklet (so, in total 3 songs).

Ur might wanna listen again. Use good speakers and don’t read the lyric sheet. The lyric sleeve calls it Dom Sheldon probably for legal purposes. . MJ hits hard on the T for Tom and the DD sound in Sneddon.

"Sweet like candy to a chowd(er)" - Happy
-> Two things here, I remembered the word "chowder" as "chowd". It's basically a word that I never use in English. But re-listening to the song, I still only can hear "chowd" and not "child".

"Though I try and try to hide my feet, they always seem to show" - Never can say goodbye


Also:
"Sunset driver / Midnight rider / Friday spider" - Sunset Driver

It was always T.S. The printed lyrics were as Hess said.

In Scream I always thought he was saying ''Daddy'' instead of ''Dammit''
