(verse 1)
F#m      G#m                  A     G#m
She was more like a beauty queen, from a movie scene
F#m      G#m                  A     G#m        Bm
I said dont mind but what do you mean, I am the one
Bm                                       F#m   G#m    A   G#m
Who will dance, on the floor, in the round...

                  Bm
She said I am the one
                                       F#m   G#m    A   G#m
who will dance, on the floor, in the round...


(verse 2)
F#      G#                  A     G#
She Told Me Her Name Was Billie Jean, as she caused a scene
F#      G#                  A     G#                    Bm
Then every head turned With eyes that dreamed, of being the One
Bm                                       F#m   G#m    A   G#m
Who will dance, on the floor, in the round

(bridge)
D                         F#m
People always told me, be careful what you do
D                         F#m
Dont go around breaking young girls hearts (heeee-eee)
D                         F#m
And mama always told me, be careful who you love
Bm                      C#m
Be careful what you do, because a lie becomes the truth (Hey ay-ay)


(Chorus)

F#m    G#m        A     G#m
Billie jean is, not my lover
F#m    G#m        A     G#m                 Bm
She's just a girl that, claims that I am the one
Bm                         F#m   G#m       A    G#m
but, the kid is not my son...
                  Bm
She says I am the one
                           F#m   G#m       A    G#m
But, the kid is not my son...


(verse 3)
F#m      G#m                  A     G#m
For forty days and for, forty nights
The law was on her side
F#m      G#m                  A     G#m
But who can stand when she's in demand
                Bm
Her schemes and plans
                                            F#m   G#m       A    G#m
Cause we danced, on the floor, in the round
                Bm                          F#m   G#m       A    G#m
So take my stong advice, just remember to always think twice

Do think twice (Do think twice Wooh!)


(verse 4)
F#m      G#m                  A     G#m
She told my baby, thats a threat
as she looked at me
F#m      G#m                  A     G#m
She showed a photo of a babys cries
                   Bm
His eyes were like mine
                                        F#m   G#m       A    G#m
Gonna dance, on the floor, in the round baby


(bridge)
D                         F#m
And people always told me, be careful what you do
D                         F#m
Dont go around, breaking young girls hearts (heee-eee)
D                         F#m
Then she came and stood right by me
D                         F#m
Cause I smelt her sweet perfume
Bm
I guess it happened all too soon
C#m
and she called me to her room (Hey-ay)


(Chorus)

F#m    G#m        A     G#m
Billie jean is, not my lover
F#m    G#m        A     G#m                 Bm
She's just a girl that, claims that I am the one
Bm                         F#m   G#m       A    G#m
but, the kid is not my son...
                  Bm
She says I am the one
                           F#m   G#m       A    G#m
But, the kid is not my son...
