Do You Know Where Your Children Are

 Just two months ago an unknown source leaked a full ruff copy to "Do You Know Where Your Children Are?" A track by non other then Michael Jackson stashed away in his vault until now. It was most likely recorded during the Dangerous Sessions(particularly 1990) before he opted for a style more akin to Teddy Riley.

 Just recently, the song was a contender for the post-humorous compilation Michael. With extra guitar licks by Steve Lukather. But unfortunately the track never made the cut.

 The track is about a runaway who is desperately trying to find herself through sex, drugs, even Hollywood. But finds out the hard way that her parents only mean well. Hense the step-fathers rhetorical remark..."Do You Know Where Your Children Are"? Perhaps his way of passing the buck onto her mother. Check it out below...

Lyrics

(VERSE ONE)
Father comes home from work and he's scared today
Mother cries out again, it's no charade
Father runs to the table, he says what's going on
Mother cries just believe, our little baby's gone

(CHORUS 1)
Do you know where your children are?
Because it's not 12 O'clock,
And Just hope they're not on the street
Just imagine how scared they are
Do you know where your children are?
Because it's not 12 O'clock,
And just hope they're not on the street.
Just imagine how scared they are.


(VERSE 2)
She wrote that she is tired of step-daddy using her
Saying that he'll buy her things, while sexually abusing her
Just think that she's alone somewhere out on the street
How will this girl survive? She ain't got nothing to eat!

(CHORUS 2)
Do you know where your children are?
Because it's not 12 O'clock,
Just hope they're not on the street
Just imagine how scared they are

Do you know where your children are?
Because it's not 12 O'clock,
Just hope they're not on the street.
Just imagine how scared they are.

Do you know where your children are?
Because it's not 12 O'clock,
Just hope they're not on the street.
Just imagine how scared they are.

Save Me (8x's and adlibs) until guitar solo

(Guitar Solo 20 seconds long)

(VERSE 3)
Now she on the move, she's off to Hollywood
She says she wanna be a star, she heard the money's good
She gets off from the train station, a man is waiting there
I'll show you where the money is, girl just let down your hair
He's taking her on the streets, of Sunset Boulevard
She's sell her body hot, girl that's what I'm taking for
Police come around the corner, somebody up there told
He's arresting this little girl, that's only twelve years old

(Last Chorus and adlibs in between)

Do you know where your children are?
Because it's not 12 O'clock,
Just hope they're not on the street.
Just imagine how scared they are. (REPEATS 6x's until 4:33)

(VERSE ONE REPEATS)
Father comes home from work and he's scared today
Mother cries out again, it's no charade
Father runs to the table, he says what's going on
