What happened in that small house
On Jackson Street
That made them stars?
An unavoidable feat?

Was it the sound of…
Diana Ross?
James Brown?
The Supremes?

Or maybe the call of…
Motown?
Berry Gordy?
Hitsville USA?

Whatever went right
We all know today
That Jermaine
Marlon
Tito
Randy
And Michael, too
Where the ones
That make us sing in tune.

Michael maybe gone
His glove now encrusted
With stars
Instead of rhinestones
Who moonwalked his way into our hearts
But there will always be the man in the mirror
That is now the man in the moon
