[Verse 1]
I remember the thirty-five sweet goodbyes
When you put me on the Wolverine
Up to Annandale
It was still September
When your daddy was quite surprised
To find you with the working girls
In the county jail
I was smoking with the boys upstairs
When I heard about the whole affair

[Chorus 1]
I said oh no
William and Mary won’t do
Well I did not think the girl
Could be so cruel
And I’m never going back
To my old school

[Verse 2]
Oleanders growing outside her door
Soon they’re gonna be in bloom
Up in Annandale
I can’t stand her
Doing what she did before
Living like a gypsy queen
In a fairy tale

[Chorus 2]
Well I hear the whistle but I can’t go
I’m gonna take her down to Mexico
She said oh no
Guadalajara won’t do
Well I did not think the girl
Could be so cruel
And I’m never going back
To my old school

[Verse 3]
California tumbles into the sea
That’ll be the day I go
Back to Annandale
Tried to warn you
About Chino and Daddy Gee
But I can’t seem to get to you
Through the U.S. Mail

[Chorus 2]
Well I hear the whistle but I can’t go
I’m gonna take her down to Mexico
She said oh no
Guadalajara won’t do
Well I did not think the girl
Could be so cruel
And I’m never going back
To my old school

Bad

 

For the first short film for one of five consecutive record-breaking No. 1 hits from Bad, Michael Jackson and director Martin Scorsese created an epic 18-minute tale of urban and racial challenges in the 1980s. “Bad” was named the second greatest of Michael’s short films by Rolling Stone in 2014.

 

Michael Jackson’s short film for “Bad” was the first of nine short films produced for recordings from Bad, one of the best selling albums of all time. The “Bad” single hit No. 1 in three countries in 1987, topping the charts in the United States, Spain and the Netherlands and reaching Top 5 in the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, Australia and elsewhere. In the U.S., “Bad” was the second of five consecutive No. 1 singles from one album on the Billboard Hot 100-making Michael the first artist to achieve this milestone.

Inspired by the real-life story of Edmund Perry, a prep school graduate from Harlem whose shooting death by a plainclothes policeman galvanized New York City, “Bad” stars Michael as Darryl, a student returning to his inner-city home while on break from a prestigious academy. In the short film’s extended black and white sequence, Darryl comes into conflict with his neighborhood friends (led by actor Wesley Snipes in a breakthrough role) after showing discomfort over their attempts at petty crime. Angrily dismissed by his friends for no longer being “bad,” Darryl challenges them in an abandoned subway station. As the film suddenly transitions to color, Darryl, clad in the black leather outfit Michael wears on the Bad album sleeve, leads a troupe of dancers in a high energy performance of “Bad,” asserting his toughness without resorting to violence and ultimately earning the respect of his peers.
