She was more like a beauty queen from a movie screen
I said don't mind, but what do you mean I am the one
Gonna dance on the floor in the round
She says I am the one who will dance on the floor in the round

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 would dance on the floor in the round

People always told me be careful of what you do
Don't go around breaking young girls' hearts
Mother always told me be careful of who you love
Be careful of what you do before the lie becomes the truth

Billie Jean is not my lover
She's just a girl who says 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

Forty days and forty nights
The law was on her side
But who can stand when she's in demand
Her schemes and her plans
'Cause we danced on the floor in the round

So take my strong advice, just remember to always think twice
Do think twice

She told my baby and we danced till three
As she looked at me
Then showed a photo of a baby cries
Eyes would like mine
'Cause we danced on the floor in the round

People always told me be careful of what you do
Don't go around breaking young girls' hearts
Then she stood right by me
Smell her sweet perfume
This happened much too soon
She called me to her room

Billie Jean is not my lover
She's just a girl who says 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

Billie Jean is not my lover
She's just a girl who says 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

So take my strong advice, and remember to always think twice
Do think twice
