Throwback Friday: “Human Nature” by Madonna

This morning I tweeted:

To which I got a response from one of my dear tweeps (check out his blog stageadaptation.wordpress.com):

The YouTube link was to Madonna‘s video for “Human Nature” from my favorite album of hers entitled “Bedtime Stories” (iTunes and Amazon) released in 1994.  I loved that album because Madonna got “black” on it with more of an R&B, hip hop, and her classic dance throughout.

I had a totally different song in mind for today’s Throwback Friday post, but this just totally trumped what I had in mind.  Thanks @StageAdaption!

Lyrics to “Human Nature” via Sing365.com

Spoken:
Express yourself, don’t repress yourself (repeat 5 times)

Chorus:

And I’m not sorry [I’m not sorry]
It’s human nature [it’s human nature]
And I’m not sorry [I’m not sorry]
Im not your bitch don’t hang your shit on me[ Its human nature]

You wouldn’t let me say the words I longed to say
You didn’t want to see life through my eyes
[Express yourself, don’t repress yourself]
You tried to shove me back inside your narrow room
And silence me with bitterness and lies
[Express yourself, don’t repress yourself]

Did I say something wrong?
Oops, I didn’t know I couldn’t talk about sex
[I musta been crazy]
Did I stay too long?
Oops, I didn’t know I couldn’t speak my mind
[What was I thinking]

(chorus)

You punished me for telling you my fantasies
I’m breakin’ all the rules I didn’t make
[Express yourself, don’t repress yourself]
You took my words and made a trap for silly fools
You held me down and tried to make me break
[Express yourself, don’t repress yourself]

Bridge:

Did I say something true?
Oops, I didn’t know I couldn’t talk about sex
[I musta been crazy]
Did I have a point of view?
Oops, I didn’t know I couldn’t talk about you
[What was I thinking]

(chorus)

Express yourself, don’t repress yourself (repeat twice)
Express yourself, don’t repress yourself (repeat twice)

(bridge)
(chorus)

(chorus, with the following spoken substitutions)
[I’m not apologizing]
[Would it sound better if I were a man?]
[You’re the one with the problem]
[Why don’t you just deal with it]

(chorus, with the following spoken substitutions)
[Would you like me better if I was?]
[We all feel the same way]
[I have no regrets]
[Just look in the mirror]

(chorus, with the following spoken substitutions)
[I don’t have to justify anything]
[I’m just like you]
[Why should I be?]
[Deal with it]

  1. Honestly, when I first saw the title I thought to myself, “Madonna covered Michael Jackson?”
    haha. I never heard this song before or I forgot it.

    Madonna has always been one to re-create herself. Which is why she has remained one of the best.

    I do hope your spirits have picked up 🙂

  2. You are Right Sharon. Madonna always tries to improve her previous states. This time a little Michel Jackson touch is good for her.
