Lyrics of Human Nature

Looking out across the nighttime
The city winks a sleepless eye
Hear her voice, shake my window
Sweet seducing sighs

Get me out into the nighttime
Four walls won't hold me tonight
If this town is just an apple
Then let me take a bite

If they say why, why, tell 'em that is human nature
Why, why, does he do me that way

Reaching out to touch a stranger
Electric eyes are everywhere
See that girl, she knows I'm watching
She likes the way I stare


I like living this way (2x)

Looking out across the loneliness
The city's heart begins to beat
Reaching out, I touch her shoulder
I'm dreaming of the street


I like living this way


'Human Nature' is an R&B song by American recording artist Michael Jackson. It was written by Steve Porcaro and John Bettis, and produced by Quincy Jones for the singer's sixth solo album, 'Thriller' (1982). Initially, Porcaro had recorded a rough demo of the song on a cassette, which was then given to Jones. Enjoying the demo, Jones had the ballad included on the 'Thriller' album. The song was the last selected for the album, ousting 'Carousel' from the final track listing.

'Human Nature' was released on July 3, 1983, as the album's fifth single. Although not released in the UK, the song achieved chart success in the US. Reaching number two on 'Billboard's Hot Adult Contemporary chart and number seven on the Hot 100, the song became Jackson's fifth Top 10 hit from 'Thriller'. In New Zealand the single reached number 11. The ballad garnered many positive reviews from music critics. 'Human Nature' has been covered and sampled by numerous artists, including Miles Davis, SWV, Nas, Jason Nevins, Alicia Keys, Boyz II Men and Toro Y Moi
