114132173

In 1985 Michael sang with Diana Ross on her album ‘Eaten Alive,’ which was conceived by Barry Gibb. Michael co-wrote the album’s title song ‘Eaten Alive,’ with the Bee Gee brothers Barry and Maurice Gibb.

‘Eaten Alive’ is a 1985 album by Diana Ross which reached #45 in the USA, #11 in the UK and Australia and the top ten in Switzerland, Norway, Sweden and the Netherlands. It includes her international hit single ‘Chain Reaction.’ It was deemed a critical and commercial disappointment, selling less than 300,000 US copies.

Primarily written and produced by Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees, the album also includes a contribution from Michael Jackson who co-wrote and performs vocals on the title track.

Here are the songs lyrics:

Animal Stalking You At Night

I’m A Sucker For Someone

And I Got The Prey In Sight

Lying On A Bed Of Leaves

In The Modern Times

You Forget And Let Your Spirit Breathe

 

Capture Me My Blood Is Red

Another Victim Of Your Ritual

For You My Skin Is Shed

Ecstasy Ain’t What You Find

In The Modern World

One Flick Of My Tongue Changes

The Meaning Of The World

And You Say

 

That’s Impossible

That’s Not Impossible To Do, Oh

And You Digest What I Can See

The Taste Of You Can Be

 

Chorus:

I Don’t Wanna Get Eaten Alive

‘Cause You’re So Dangerous

No More Hearts I Can Trust, You See

I Don’t Wanna Get Eaten Alive

To Be Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

I Don’t Ever Wanna Be

Eaten Alive

 

Now I Got You On The Run

And The Quicker My Senses

And The Chance Is, I’m The Faster One

I Know The Universal Law

Primeval Times

With A Little Stimulation

It’ll Come Once More, And You Say

That’s Impossible

It’s Not Impossible To Do, Oh

And You Digest What I Can See

The Taste Of You Can Be

 

(Chorus)

I Don’t Wanna Get Eaten Alive

‘Cause You’re So Dangerous

No More Hearts I Can Trust, You See

I Don’t Wanna Get Eaten Alive

To Be Eaten Alive

 

Tie Me To A Tree, Crawl All Over Me

You Can Rip My Shirt, Drag Me In The Dirt

I Will Be Your Slave, Anything You Say

I Don’t Ever Wanna Be Eaten Alive

 

I Don’t Wanna Get Eaten Alive

‘Cause You’re So Dangerous

No More Hearts I Can Trust, You See

I Don’t Wanna Get Eaten Alive

‘Cause You’re So Dangerous

No More Hearts I Can Trust, You See

I Don’t Wanna Get Eaten Alive

‘Cause You’re So Dangerous

No More Hearts I Can Trust, You See

I Don’t Wanna Get Eaten Alive

To Be Eaten Alive

 

Gotta Do Her, Crawl All Over Me

You Can Rip My Shirt, Drag Me In The Dirt

I Will Be Your Slave, Anything You Say

I Don’t Ever Wanna Be, Eaten Alive
