Little Susie

HIStory Album | History Music Videos
Little Susie is a song written and composed by Michael Jackson. The song featured on Jackson's album HIStory, which was released in 1995. The song tells the story of a girl nicknamed 'Little Susie' who has been killed after being pushed down a flight of stairs. The song's message is that of the hardships experienced by children who have been neglected, as Little Susie's parents and grandparents are dead.

The song is divided into three distinct sections. The first features a choir singing a melancholic tune. After the sound of a music box being turned, a girl playing the part of Little Susie la la's the melody of the song, which is featured after this section. Michael sings to a distinctly Russian, melancholic melody, with the repeated line of "lift her with care, the blood in her hair."

  • Written and composed by Michael Jackson
  • Produced by Michael Jackson

Somebody killed little susie
The girl with the tune
Who sings in the daytime at noon
She was there screaming
Beating her voice in her doom
But nobody came to her soon...

A fall down the stairs
Her dress torn
Oh the blood in her hair...
A mystery so sullen in air
She lie there so tenderly
Fashioned so slenderly
Lift her with care,
Oh the blood in her hair...

Everyone came to see
The girl that now is dead
So blind stare the eyes in her head...
And suddenly a voice from the crowd said
This girl lived in vain
Her face bear such agony, such strain...

But only the man from next door
Knew little susie and how he cried
As he reached down
To close susies eyes...
She lie there so tenderly
Fashioned so slenderly
Lift her with care
Oh the blood in her hair...

It was all for gods sake
For her singing the tune
For someone to feel her despair
To be damned to know hoping is dead and youre doomed
Then to scream out
And nobodys there...

She knew no one cared...

Father left home, poor mother died
Leaving susie alone
Grandfathers soul too had flown...
No one to care
Just to love her
How much can one bear
Rejecting the needs in her prayers...

Neglection can kill
Like a knife in your soul
Oh it will
Little susie fought so hard to live...
She lie there so tenderly
Fashioned so slenderly
Lift her with care
So young and so fair
