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

She told me her name was Billie Jean as she caused the scene
Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed of being the one
Who will dance on the floor in the round

Now People always told me be careful what you do
don't come around breaking young girls hearts
And mother always told me be careful who you love
And be careful of what you do cause the lie becomes the truth
(Hey, hey, hey)

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

For forty days and for forty nights
The law was on her side
But who can stand when she's in demand
Her schemes and 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 to dance to three then she looked at me,
Then showed a photo of a baby cryin', eyes was like mine
So we dance on the floor in the round, baby

Now People always told me be careful what you do
(And) don't go around breaking young girls' hearts
She came and stood right by me then the smell of
her sweet perfume this happened much too soon
She called me in her room
(Hey, hey, hey)

Billie Jean is not my lover
She's just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son
Billie Jean is not my lover
She's just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son
She says I am the on
