Michael Jackson's Al Capone

 Michael Jackson sure loved to fancy himself as a gangsta. From "Beat It, to "Bad" the Gloved One was on the streets. Weather it be "Moonwalker" to "You Rock My World", he battled the Mafia(with Joe Peshie) and confronted The Godfather. He even experimented with Gangsta Rap for the uptemple smash "2 Bad". "Al Capone" has joined the party!

 As you can easily disern, "Al Capone" eventually evolved into what we know as Smooth Criminal. However, the inspiration actually stemmed in part from a previous outtake "Chicago 1945". Perhaps recorded during the Thriller Sessions.

 As the song progressed in development, so did the storyline. Al Capone was eventually dropped in favor of Annie. Mr. Jackson brought the spirits to this ago-old club to rest by solving an ancient mystery of the murder of this innocent clubber during the roaring 20's. Thus, "Al Capone" became "Smooth Criminal"!

Lyrics to Al Capone

Why did you let him getaway, after the scary might just say
Just done it on that cold as ice, screaming my face [?]
[?]
Now it’s my job to get revenge
Why did you let him getaway?
Why did you let him getaway?

Too bad, forget it, cause there’s Al Capone who's in it
So sad, regret it, cause a mad man’s out tonight

Should have told her, nobody ever showed her about this
And now I scream, nobody should be treated this way
Should have told her, nobody ever showed her about this
And now I scream, nobody should be treated this way

Why did you let him getaway, after the scary might just say
Just done it on that cold as ice, screaming my face [?]
[?]
Now it’s my job to get revenge
Why did you let him getaway?
Why did you let him geta-

-Too bad, forget it, cause there’s Al Capone who's in it
So sad, regret it, and I told her out tonight

Should have told her, nobody ever showed her about this
And now I scream, nobody should be treated this way
Should have told her, nobody ever showed her about this
And now I scream, nobody should be treated this way

Too bad, forget it, cause there’s Al Capone who's in it
So sad, regret it, cause a man is out tonight

Should have told her, nobody ever showed her about this
And now I scream, nobody should be treated this way
Should have told her, nobody ever showed her about this
And now I scream, nobody should be treated this way

Should have told her, nobody ever showed her about this
And now I scream, nobody should be treated this way
Should have told her, nobody ever showed her about this
And now I scream, nobody should be treated this way

Why did you let him getaway, after the scary might just say
Just done it on that cold as ice, screaming my face [?]
[?]
Now it’s my job to get revenge
Why did you let him getaway?
Why did you let him getaway?
