Lyrics / Paroles

Jackson 5
Call of the wild
Call of the wild
Call of the wild

Jermaine
People tell me this
And people that me that

Michael
Ooo, everybody thinks they know
Where it's at

Jermaine
Life is getting harder
And it's tearing me down

Michael
It's time to pack my bags
I'm gonna leave this town

Jackson 5
The call of the wild is calling me
The wilderness is beckoning me
The call of the wild is calling me
Where nature moves over the free

Call of the wild
Call of the wild
Call of the wild

Jermaine
People quibbling' this
And people quibbling' that

Michael
The ones with the money
Just keep on getting that

Jermaine
There ain't no solitude
The quiets getting loud

Michael
Any place you want to go
Gotta fight right through the crowd

Jackson 5
The call of the wild is calling me
The wilderness is beckoning me
The call of the wild is calling me
Where nature moves over the free
The earth and the sky and the sea
The numbers of signs you can see
The call of the wild is calling me
The call of the wild is calling me
The wilderness is beckoning me
The call of the wild is calling me

[repeat to fade]
