intro: F#m  / G#m  /  A  /   G#m
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 don`t mind but what do you mean,I am the one  
    Bm                     Bm                Bm            F#m                        
  Who will dance on the floor in the       round         
   F#m  / G#m  /  A  /   G#m
  She told me her name was Billie Jean as she caused a scene.
F#m  / G#m  /  A  /   G#m
  Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed
  Of being the one,
      Bm                    Bm                           F#m
  Who will dance on the floor in the round
F#m  / G#m  /  A  /   G#m
  D                                       F#m
  People always told me, be careful what you do.
  Bm                                                                         F#m
  And don`t go around breaking young girls' hearts
     D                                              F#m
  And mother always told me, be careful what you do,
     Bm                                             C#m
  And be careful what you say, `cause the lie becomes the truth, hey

F#m       E   F#m          E   C#m
  Billie Jean is not my lover,
 F#m               E      F#m             A    Bm    A    G#m    F#m 
  She's just a girl who claims that   I      am the      one
   F#m      C#m    Bm    A     G#m       F#m
  But the kid       is      not    my         son  
    F#m  A    Bm   A     G#m  F#m
  She    says  I     am   the     one,
   F#m      C#m       Bm   C#m   D   C#m              
  But the    kid       is        not   my   son               

For forty days and forty nights, law was on her side
But who can stand when she`s in demand,
Her scemes and plans
`Cause we danced on the floor in the round.
So take my strong advice: Just remember to always think twice

She told my baby we danced till three, and she looked at me,
Then showed a photo. My baby cried.
His eyes were like mine.
Can we dance on the floor in the round?

People always told me, be careful what you do.
And don`t go around breaking young girls' hearts.
But you came and stood right by me, just a smell of sweet perfume.
This happened much too soon. She called me to her room, hey

You have some of the lyrics wrong, but that's beside the point.

The chord progression seems good, but the chorus can't be that way. There can't 4 different chords for that last phrase "is not my son"

The intro seems spot on though, so 4 stars...maybe I just need to work on the last for word of the chorus or something but wow that changes too fast.

there are suppose to be four chords for "is not my son" you just play the four chords over the four words just once. i tried to put a correction on here for it to look a lot cleaner but for some reason they didn't post it.

This does not sound right - too many chords. Ver2 is more like it.

I want to post or [tab]
