hey i did this arrangment for my band coz we were doing a tribute album with other 
bands full of MJ songs because he was a fantastic man. RIP dude.

First off i did the vocal line on guitar and it goes like this.
We put this in instead of the 3rd verse but its up to you.
Listen to the song for rhythm i'm sure its right.

Chords

[Intro]

G#min  F#min  F#maj  D#maj


[Verse]

F#                            C#
Its close to midnight, and something evil's lurking in the dark
F#                       C#     
under the moonlight, you see a sight that alost stopes your heart
F#                                                        C#
you try to scream, but terror takes the sounds before you make it
F#                                                         C#
you start to scream, as horror looks you right between the eyes;


[Chorus]

              C#   E    E     F#  C#
'Cos this is Thril-ler, Thril-ler night
F#                                   C#
And no one's gonna save you from the beast about to strike
               C#   E    E     F#  C#
'Cos this is Thril-ler, Thril-ler night
F#                                    F# F#   F#    F#    C#
Your fighting for you life, inside a kil-ler, thril-ler, tonight


[Intro 2] 

F#  C#  F#  C#


[Verse 2] 
(same as verse 1)


[Chorus 2]
(same as verse 2)

F#                                                       Amaj7  B
Night creatures call and the dead start to walk in there masquerade
A                            E                      G
And there's no escaping the jaws of the alien, this time
A                  G
This is the end of your life


[Intro 3]
(same as first)

[Verse 3]

A|---------------|
E|---------------|

I agree, this is all kinds of wrong. For the record this is in C#m.
