Those abortion papers
 Signed in your name against the words of God
 Those abortion papers
 Think about life, I'd like to have my child

"Song Groove" was made just years after abortion was legalized in the United States in 1973 when the Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade that a woman had the right to decide to have an abortion. The song is upbeat despite the topic Jackson, survived by three children, sings about.

In the first verse he says:

Sister don't read, she'll never know
 What about love?
 Living a Christian soul
 What do we get, she runs away
 What about love?
 What about all I pray

He later sings:

Sister confused, she went alone
 What about love?
 What about all I saw?
 Biding a life, reading the words
 Singing a song, citing a Bible verse

Jackson died in 2009 after suffering a respiratory arrest at his Los Angeles home. He was 50. A coroner ruled that a combination of propofol and sedatives administered by Dr. Conrad Murray caused Jackson's death. Murray was convicted last year of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to four years in prison.
