Man In The Mirror

(B, S, SS: ooh)

(A&T) I'm gonna make a change for once in my life

It's gonna feel real good

Gonna make a difference

Gonna make it right

 

As I, turn up the collar on

My favourite winter coat

This wind is blowing my mind

(T: ooh) (A & S) I see the kids in the streets

With not enough to eat

Who am I to be blind?

Pretending not to see their need

 

(B & T: Ah)

(A, S, SS) A summer's disregard, a broken bottle top

And a one man soul

They follow each other on the wind ya' know

'Cause they got nowhere to go

That's why I want you to know

 

(All) I'm starting with the man in the mirror

I'm asking him to change his ways

And no message could have been any clearer

If you want to make the world a better place

Take a look at yourself, and then make a cha-ee-ange

Na na na...

 

(B & SS: ooh)

(A, T , S) I've been a victim of a selfish kind of love

It's time that I realise

(T: ooh) (A & S) That there are some with no home, not a nickel to loan

Could it be really me, pretending that they're not alone?

 

(B & T: Ah)

(A, S, SS) A willow deeply scarred, somebody's broken heart

And a washed-out dream (S & SS: Washed-out dream)

They follow the pattern of the wind ya' see

'Cause they got no place to be

That's why I'm starting with me

 

(All) I'm starting with the man in the mirror

I'm asking him to change his ways

And no message could have been any clearer

If you want to make the world a better place

Take a look at yourself, and then make a change

 

I'm starting with the man in the mirror

I'm asking him to change his ways

And no message could have been any clearer

If you want to make the world a better place

Take a look at yourself and then make that

Change!

 

I'm starting with the man in the mirror

(Oh yeah!)

I'm asking him to change his ways

(We want change!)

No message could have been any clearer

If you want to make the world a better place

Take a look at yourself and then make the change

You gotta get it right, while you got the time

Cos when you close your heart

Then you close your, your mind

 

I'm starting with the man in the mirror

(Oh yeah!)

I'm asking him to change his ways

(We want change!)

No message could have been any clearer

If you want to make the world a better place

Take a look at yourself and then make the change

 

Na na na...

Oh yeah!

Na na na...

 

Yeah! Make that change!

Man in the mirror

Yeah! Make that change!

Man in the mirror

Yeah! Make that change

Man in the mirror

Change
