Leave Me Alone Lyrics
I don't care what you talkin'
I don't care what you say
Don't you come walkin'
Beggin' back mama
I don't care anyway
Time after time I gave you all of my money
No excuses to make
Ain't no mountain that...

If you have seen the video to this song it is quite obvious that he is wanting the media to leave him alone. The video consists of newspaper articles about him sleeping in an oxygen chamber, buying elephant bones, confiding in his pet chimp, creating a shrine to Liz Taylor and the ever famous nose even appears in it.

Record label bosses are close friends with the media. He upset them by being disobedient and making the music he wanted, including exposing lyrics. This in turn was at the expense of his beautiful legacy and more so, his life.
The big music industry bosses are seriously powerful people and have heavy connections.
Cabal runs deep

It means that in the 80's people were basically bullying Michael and saying so much untrue things the lyrics "just stop doggin me around" means that people were treating him badly based off of tabloid stories and in the song he loved us that means that he was putting love in but people have him hate in return. He lived a good life but those people who say untrue things just need to keep their mouths shut and worry about their own business.

This was probably about people telling lies and it annoyed him.

See during the 80's there was weird stories going around the press about Michael and it made him feel sad and stuff so he wrote Leave Me Alone to let people know he wants them to let him be. Then later in the 90's when the Sexual Abuse stuff came along he wrote more songs like "Scream" and "Stranger in Moscow" I only have one question why do people spread lies about him he help so many people in his life and this is what he gets out of it like wtf. This world is messed up

I think Michael is saying in this song leave me the alone. Self explanatory just leave me the hell alone, don't come around. Don't try and take up room in my space, time or mind anymore. Just leave me the f@$k alone.

Michael said this song is about the relationship between a man and a woman. But he also said it sends a clear message to the people who are bothering him.
The video is really unrelated to the lyrics because he didn't give the press all of his money. lol He must have experienced a painful relationship that inspired this song. The woman apparently uses him for his money and is deceitful but she keeps begging to come back to him. I like the last verse where he's telling her to not come back begging while at the same time proclaiming that he loves her. He's conflicted. I love this song.

This song is to get the media to leave him alone. He portrays the media as a girl to get the message across.

This song is so obviously about Diana Ross. "Ain't no mountain I can't climb" She jerked his feelings around and married someone else. He said once in an interview he wanted to marry her. He was dead serious. Now he seems to be saying in this song , he is over her. Hence, leave him the heck alone!
My view on this song is that one guy loved a girl seriously but she refused his love.....(there was a time I used to say girl I need you) while that guy changes his way the girl come again and say she need him but that guy don't want that and tell her to leave him alone....

When I first heard this song, I thought it was Michael telling the paparazzi to back off, but when I listened to it, I realized it was really about a girl who just kept jerking him around, therefore he wanted her to "leave him alone."
