HIStory comporte un sample de "Pictures At An Exhibition" Performed by The Philadelphia Orchestra, conducted by Eugene Ormandy. Composed by Modeste Mussorgsky, arranged by Maurice Ravel.

Les voix que l'on entend dans la chanson sont : Charles Lindbergh Report by Lowell Thomas. Art Collier reporting on Hank Aaron. Robert Kennedy Eulogy by Edward Kennedy.

Interview with Berry Gordy from "Conversation With Ed Gordon". "I am the Edison phonograph". "I have a dream..." Dr Martin Luther King Jr. "By any means..." Malcom X.
Ce n'est pas la version de l'album qui fut exploitée en clip vidéo mais bien un remix, le HIStory Lesson dans lequel Michael Jackson n'apparaît que par des images d'archive.
C'est également le HIStory Lesson qui fut exploité en radio et en boite de nuit, on pourrait même dire que le titre exploité est celui de l'album "Blood On The Dance Floor" et non "HIStory".

Les Paroles :

HIStory
Par : Michael Jackson, James Harris III, Terry Lewis

He got kicked in the back
He say that he needed that
He hot willed in the face
Keep daring to motivate
He say one day you will see
His place in world history
He dares to be recognized
The fires deep in his eyes

How many victims must there be
Slaughtered in vain across the land
And how many struggles must there be
Before we choose to live the prophet's plan
Everybody...

Every day create your history
Every path you take you're leaving your legacy
Every soldier dies in his glory
Every legend tells of conquest and liberty

Don't let no one get you down
Keep movin' on higher ground
Keep flying until
You are the king of the hill
No force of nature can break
Your will to self motivate
She say this face that you see
Is destined for history

How many people have to cry
The song of pain and grief across the land
And how many children have to die
Before we stand to lend a healing hand
Everybody sing...

Every day create your history
Every path you take you're leaving your legacy
Every soldier dies in his glory
Every legend tells of conquest and liberty
Every day create your history
Every page you turn you're writing your legacy
Every hero dreams of chivalry
Every child should sing together in harmony

All nations sing
Let's harmonize all around the world

How many victims must there be
Slaughtered in vain across the land
And how many children must we see
Before we learn to live as brothers
And create one family oh...

Every day create your history
Every path you take you're leaving your legacy
Every soldier dies in his glory
Every legend tells of conquest and liberty
Every day create your history
Every page you turn you're writing your legacy
Every hero dreams of chivalry
Every child should sing together in harmony

A soldier dies
A mother cries
The promised child shines in a baby's eyes
All nations sing
Let's harmonize all around the world
