Wondering Who

The concluding piece to The Jacksons LP Triumph. This time around, Michael's eldest brother Jackie takes the commanding lead. Yet you can still make out Michael doing his signature ab-libs.
Written by Randy and Jackie.



Lyrics
I’ve got you wondering who
Look what you put me through
No more planning to start anew

Both Jermaine and Michael refused to star in the accompanying promo.

Baby, because you cut me like a knife
without your love in my life.
I'm out, I'm walkin' the night
'cause I just can't stop this feelin'.
It's torture, it's torture, it's torture.

She was up a stair to nowhere.
A room forever I'll remember.
She said as though I should have known her,
Tell me, what's yo…
