Billie Jean

(Michael Jackson)

1st Verse
She was more like a beauty queen
From a movie scene
I said don’t mind, but what do you mean
I am the one
Who will dance on the floor in the round
She said I am the one
Will dance on the floor in the round

2nd Verse
She told me her name was Billie Jean,
As she caused a scene
Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed
Of being the one
Who will dance on the floor in the round

Bridge
People always told me
Be careful of what you do
And don’t go around breaking young girls’ hearts
And mother always told me
Be careful of who you love
And be careful of what you do
‘Cause the lie becomes the truth

Chorus
Billie Jean is not my lover
She’s just a girl who claims that
I am the one
But the kid is not my son
She says I am the one,
But the kid is not my son

3rd Verse
For forty days and forty nights
The law was on her side
But who can stand
When she’s in demand
Her schemes and plans
‘Cause we danced on the floor in the round
So take my strong advice,
Just remember to always think twice
(Do think twice)

4th Verse
She told my baby we’d danced ’til three,
Then she looked at me
Then showed a photo
My baby cried his eyes were like mine
(Oh, no!)
‘Cause we’d danced on the floor in the round, baby

Bridge
People always told me
Be careful of what you do
And don’t go around breaking young girls’ hearts
She came and stood right by me
Then the smell of sweet perfume
This happened much too soon
She called me to her room

Chorus
Billie Jean is not my lover
She’s just a girl who claims that
I am the one,
But the kid is not my son
Billie Jean is not my lover
She’s just a girl who claims that
I am the one,
But the kid is not my son
She says I am the one,
But the kid is not my son

She says I am the one,
But the kid is not my son
Billie Jean is not my lover
She’s just a girl who claims that
I am the one
But the kid is not my son
She says I am the one,
But the kid is not my son

She says I am the one,
She says he is my son
She says I am the one
Billie Jean is not my lover
Billie Jean is not my lover
Billie Jean is not my lover
Billie Jean is not my lover
Billie Jean is not my lover

Billie Jean is
Billie Jean is
Billie Jean is

Not my lover
Not my lover
Not my lover
Not my lover

Billie Jean is not my lover
(she is just a girl)
Billie Jean is not my lover
(she is just a girl)
Billie Jean is not my lover
(she is just a girl)
Billie Jean is not my lover
(she is just a girl)

Billie Jean is
Billie Jean is

Billie Jean is not my lover
Billie Jean is not my lover

Billie Jean is
Billie Jean is

Billie Jean is not my lover
Billie Jean is not my lover

Billie Jean is
Billie Jean is
