...BILLIE JEAN... by Michael Jackson
-----------------...................

*from 'Thriller' (1982)*


*CAPO 2nd FRET*

(Original Key: F#m)


Intro:

(n.C)
 (Drums)

Em  F#m/E, G/D  F#m/E (x2)

Verse 1:

Em       F#m/E       G/D                  F#m/E
 She was more like a beauty queen, from a movie scene,
Em       F#m/E                G/D          F#m/E    Am7
 I said; don't mind, but what do you mean; I am the one?
                                    Em    F#m/E  G/D
Who will dance on the floor, in the round.
          F#m/E    Am7                                     (Em)
She said; I am the one, who will dance on the floor, in the round.

Interlude:

Em  F#m/E, G/D  F#m/E

Verse 2:

Em           F#m/E        G/D                 F#m/E
 She told me her name was Billie Jean, as she caused a scene.
Em          F#m/E             G/D                  F#m/E     Am7
 Then every head turned, with eyes that dreamed of being the one,
                                   (Em)
Who will dance on the floor, in the round.

Interlude:

Em  F#m/E, G/D  F#m/E

Bridge 1:

C                          Em
 People always told me; be careful what you do;
          C                               Em
And don't go around breaking young girl's hearts.
    C                         Em
And mother always told me; be careful of who you love;
       C                                B7
And be careful of what you do, 'cos the lie becomes the truth.

Chorus 1:

Em      F#m/E   G/D    F#m/E
 Billie Jean is not my lover;
Em            F#m/E     G/D         F#m/E    Am7
 She's just a girl who, claims that I am the one.
                      Em  F#m/E, G/D
But the kid is not my son.
          F#m/E    Am7                       (Em)
She says; I am the one, but the kid is not my son.

Interlude:

Em  F#m/E, G/D  F#m/E

Verse 3:

Em   F#m/E          G/D                       F#m/E
 For forty days and forty nights, the law was on her side.
Em           F#m/E             G/D        F#m/E           Am7
 But who can stand, when she's in demand, her schemes and plans?
                                    Em    F#m/E, G/D
'Cos we danced on the floor, in the round.
        F#m/E       Am7                                  Em    F#m/E
So take my strong a-dvice; just remember to always think twice.
          G/D             F#m/E
(Do think twice, do think twice).

Verse 3:

Em           F#m/E     G/D                          F#m/E
 She told my baby we'd danced 'till three, then she looked a me,
Em             F#m/E     G/D             F#m/E            Am7
 Then showed a photo; my baby cried; his eyes looked like mine.
                                 Em          F#m/E  G/D  F#m/E
Go on dance on the floor, in the round, baby.

Bridge 2:

C                          Em
 People always told me; be careful what you do;
          C                               Em
And don't go around breaking young girl's hearts.
    C                                    Em
She came and stood right by me; then the smell of sweet perfume.
     C                           B7
This happened much too soon; she called me to her room.

Chorus 2:

Em      F#m/E   G/D    F#m/E
 Billie Jean is not my lover;
Em            F#m/E     G/D         F#m/E    Am7
 She's just a girl who, claims that I am the one.

But the kid is not my son.

                      Em  F#m/E, G/D
But the kid is not my son.

She says; I am the one, but the kid is not my son.
