In The Closet

Album: Dangerous (1992)
Charted: 8 6
  • She's just a lover, who makes me high
    Is it worth the giving, is it worth the try
    You cannot cleave it, or put it in the furnace
    You cannot wet it, you cannot burn it

    She wants to give it
    (She wants to give it, she wants to give it) Dare me
    (She wants to give it, she wants to give it)
    She wants to give it
    (She wants to give it, she wants to give it) Yea
    (She wants to give it, she wants to give it)

    One thing in life you must understand
    The truth of lust woman to man
    So open the door, and you will see
    There are no secrets
    Make your move, set me free

    Because there's something about you baby
    That makes me want to give it to you
    I swear there's something about you baby

    Just promise me, whatever we say
    Whatever we do to each other
    For now we take a vow to just
    Keep it in the closet

    If you can get it, it's worth a try
    I really want it, I can't deny
    It's just desire, I really love it
    'Cause if it's aching, you have to rub it
    She wants to give it

    She wants to give it
    (She wants to give it, she wants to give it) Dare me
    (She wants to give it, she wants to give it)
    She wants to give it
    (She wants to give it, she wants to give it) Yea
    (She wants to give it, she wants to give it)

    Just open the door, and you will see
    This passion burns inside of me
    Don't say to me, you'll never tell
    Touch me there, make the move
    Cast the spell

    Because there's something about you baby
    That makes me want to give it to you
    I swear there's something about you baby

    Just promise me, whatever we say
    Or do to each other
    For now we'll make a vow to just
    Keep it in the closet

    Because there's something about you baby
    That makes me want to give it to you

    Because there's something about you baby
    That makes me want to give it to you

    Because there's something about you baby
    That makes me want to give it to you

    Because there's something about you baby
    That makes me want to give it to you

    Because there's something about you baby
    That makes me want to give it to you

    Because there's something about you baby

    Just promise me, whatever we say
    Or do to each other
    For now we'll make a vow to just
    Keep it in the closet

    She wants to give it,
    She wants to give it, oh she want's to give it
    She wants to give it, oh she want's to give it
    She wants to give it,
    She wants to give it, oh she want's to give it
    She wants to give it,
    She wants to give it, oh she want's to give it Writer/s: Michael Joe Jackson, Edward Theodore Riley

  • Miley from GermanyLol! You must be a hater. Go do you further research and make sure you're in a reliable sources not just a fanmade or corrupt media tabloids. The message of the song is about a relationship that has been kept behind closed doors. Michael Jackson had some secret girlfriends (it was since his handlers wants him to be single, bc they believe he's way more sexier being single) he even have a codename for them for privacy, his bodyguards only knew the girls by the codename not by their real name. If you knew Tatiana (his leading lady in The Way You Make Me Feel video) she messed up in one of MJ's concert. She kissed him on the lips on the stage, in front of the crowd. That made MJ's manager upset and they fired her right away for disobeying.
  • J Taylor from Texas, Usa@Karen from Manchester Its actually a great video. Have you seen it? So to answer your question..."or what."
  • Ekristheh from Halath, United StatesWelcome Charisse, when you want to correct lyrics you can click on "view lyrics" and submit your corrections at the bottom of the window that appears. Good luck.
  • Charisse from Cheltenham, MdHey, this is Charisse, sorry if I missed a part int he song in the closet by michael jackson. I f you were wondering what the lyrics were, here they are. 'It's just a feelin' you have to soothe it
    You can't neglect it
    you cant abuse it
    Its just desire
    you cannot waste it
    thn if you want it then won't you taste it.
    Sorry again, I'm a first timer
  • Ekristheh from Halath, United StatesI don't think it's so bad. Boy, she's pretty.
  • Karen from Manchester, NhNo offense to the late Messrs. Jackson and Ritts...but is this the WORST video, or what?
