Little Susie

My acoustic attempt on Guitar of one of the most haunting songs ever done by Michael Jackson. Dedicated to all the children of this world who live in fear and tears. May this world find a resting place where peaceful waters flow..

Lyrics:

Somebody killed little Susie the girl with the tune
Who sings in the daytime at noon
She was there screaming Beating her voice in her doom
But nobody came to her soon…
A fall down the stairs, Her dress torn
Oh the blood in her hair…
A mystery so sullen in air

She lies there so tenderly Fashioned so slenderly
Lift her with care, Oh the blood in her hair…

Everyone came to see the girl that now is dead
So blind stare the eyes in her head…
And suddenly a voice from the crowd said
This girl lived in vain
Her face bear such agony, such strain…

But only the man from next door
Knew Little Susie and how he cried
As he reached down To close Susie’s eyes…

She lies there so tenderly..

It was all for God’s sake For her singing the tune
For someone to feel her despair
To be damned to know hoping is dead and you’re doomed
Then to scream out And nobody’s there…

She knew no one cared…

Father left home, poor mother died
Leaving Susie alone
Grandfather’s soul too had flown…
No one to care Just to love her
How much can one bear
Rejecting the needs in her prayers…

Neglection can kill Like a knife in your soul
Oh it will..Little Susie fought so hard to live…
She lies there so tenderly..

Songwriter(s): Michael Jackson, Lewis Bock Jerrold, Sheldon Harnick, Michael Joe Jackson
