He had magic 

In his feet

In his eyes

In his hands

He was from outer space 

Another time

Another place

They said he was this

They said he was that

No one understood

He was a moon walker

He was a night stalker

He was a genie 

From a far away land

No one will forget

His name

His moves

His songs 

We loved him

We hurt him

Oh what a man

But was he a man?

Or was he a little boy? 

The world will never know

What could have been?

What would have been? 

Just a shooting star

Just a moonwalker
