  • Nation to nation, all the world must come together
    Face the problems that we see, then maybe somehow, we can work it out
    I asked my neighbor for a favor, she said, "Later"
    What has come of all the people, have we lost love of what it's about?
    I have to find my peace 'cause no one seems to let me be
    False prophets cry of doom, what are the possibilities?
    I told my brother there'll be problems, times and tears for fears
    But we must live each day like it's the last
    Go with it, go with it

    Jam
    It ain't too much stuff (jam)
    It ain't too much
    It ain't too much for me to
    Jam
    It ain't
    It ain't too much stuff (jam)
    It ain't, don't you
    It ain't too much for me to

    The world keeps changing, rearranging minds and thoughts
    Predictions fly of doom, the baby boom has come of age, we'll work it out
    I told my brothers don't you ask me for no favors
    I'm conditioned by the system, don't you talk to me, don't scream and shout
    She prays to God, to Buddha, then she sings a Talmud song
    Confusions contradict the self, do we know right from wrong?
    I just want you to recognize me in the temple
    You can't hurt me, I found peace within myself
    Go with it, go with it

    Jam
    It ain't
    It ain't too much stuff (jam)
    It ain't too much
    It ain't too much for me to
    Jam
    It ain't
    It ain't too much stuff (jam)
    It ain't
    Don't you
    It ain't too much for me to
    Jam
    Uh-huh
    It ain't too much stuff (jam)
    It ain't too much
    It ain't too much for me to
    Jam
    It ain't
    It ain't too much stuff (jam)
    It ain't
    Don't you
    It ain't too much for me to (woo)

    Jam, jam, here comes the man
    Hot damn, the B-boy stands with an upper hand
    Makin' funky tracks with my man Michael Jackson
    Smooth criminal, that's the man 'cause Mike's so relaxed
    Mingle, mingle, jingle in the jungle
    Bum rushed the door, three and fours in a bundle
    Execute the plan, first I cooled it like a fan
    Got with Janet, then with guy, now with Michael
    'Cause it ain't hard to

    Jam
    It ain't
    It ain't too much stuff (jam)
    It ain't too much
    It ain't too much for me to
    Jam
    Get on it
    It ain't too much stuff (jam)
    It ain't
    Don't stop
    It ain't too much for me to
    Jam
    It ain't
    It ain't too much stuff (jam)
    It ain't
    Don't you
    It ain't too much for me to (hoo-hoo)
    Jam
    It ain't (hoo-hoo)
    It ain't too much stuff (jam)
    It ain't
    Don't you (hoo-hoo)
    It ain't too much for me to
    Jam (hoo)

    It ain't too hard for me to jam
    It ain't too hard for me to jam
    It ain't too hard for me to jam
    It ain't too hard for me to jam
    It ain't too hard for me to jam
    It ain't too hard for me to jam
    It ain't too hard for me to jam, it ain't too hard for me to jam
    It ain't too hard for me to jam (get down, hoo)

    Ooh

  • John from Nashville, TnOne of the co-writers of this song was Rene Moore, one-half of 80s r&b duo Rene and Angela. The duo's biggest hits were "I'll Be Good", "Your Smile" and "You Don't Have To Cry". The duo also produced half of Janet Jackson's self-titled debut album in 1982.
  • Helena from London, EnglandThis song is so underrated! It's one of the best MJ songs ever!
  • B from MelbourneThis is my favourite MJ song. It's fast-paced, the lyrics are simply genius, and it's hard-edged to a degree we haven't previously seen from Michael. If you have ever seen Michael perform this song live, it is nothing short of spectacular. Amazing dancing to an amazing beat, and explosions left right and center. This song is incredibly underrated since it didn't even make it to the top 10, but I think it should be in every MJ greatest hits collection because it's simply a phenomenon.
  • Sarah Floyd from Bloomingdale, Ili like this song and i think there is no high notes in the song. and i hope this song goes on and on forever. and if it does i would be so happy. well this song gave me the good feeling.
  • Harry from BrisbaneI dont really love the song but it is great to sing to if you can reach the high notes!
  • Joshua from Niagara Falls, CanadaI love that song!!!! I have the CD dangerous. I give the song and the album 5 out of 5 stars!!!
    P.S: GO MICHAEL JACKSON, KEEP DANCING!!!
  • Jam Kemal from Lindua, South AfricaI heard that Jam was a poem Jackson wrote for his poem book, Dancing The Dream, but Teddy Riley read it and loved it, so they composed and produced it to make a funky R&B/new Jack Swing song. The song was used as the opener for The Dangerous World Tour
