Intro:
Em (Top 4 strings picked slowly down then up) x 4
Verse 1:
[Em]She was more like a beauty queen from a movie scene
I said don't mind, but what do you mean I am the [Am]one
Who will dance on the floor in the [Em]round
She said I am the [Am]one, who will dance on the floor in the [Em]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 [Am]one
Who will dance on the floor in the [Em]round
Bridge:
[C]People always told me be [Em]careful of what you do
Don't [C]go around breaking young girls' [Em]hearts
And [C]mother always told me be [Em]careful of who you love
And be [C]careful of what you do before the [B7]lie becomes the truth
Chorus:
[Em]Billie [Am]Jean is [Em]not my [Gadd9/E]lover[Em]
She's just a [Am]girl who [Em]says that I am the [Am]one[Bmadd11/A]
But the [Gadd11/A]kid is [Bm7/A]not my [Em]son
She says I am the [Am]one
But the [Gadd11/A]kid is [Bm7/A]not my [Em]son
Verse 2:
[Em]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 [Am]plans.
'Cause we danced on the floor in the [Em]round
So take my strong ad[Am]vice, remember to always think [Em]twice
(Do think twice)
Verse 3:
[Em]She told my baby we'd danced till three, then she looked at me
Then showed a photo my baby cried his eyes were like [Am]mine
'Cause we danced on the floor in the [Em]round
Bridge:
[C]People always told me be [Em]careful of what you do
Don't [C]go around breaking young girls' [Em]hearts
Then she [C]stood right by me. The [Em]smell of sweet perfume.
This [C]happened much too soon. She [B7]called me to her room.
Chorus:
[Em]Billie [Am]Jean is [Em]not my [Gadd9/E]lover[Em]
She's just a [Am]girl who [Em]says that I am the [Am]one[Bmadd11/A]
But the [Gadd11/A]kid is [Bm7/A]not my [Em]son
She says I am the [Am]one
But the [Gadd11/A]kid is [Bm7/A]not my [Em]son
So take my strong ad[Am]vice, remember to always think [Em]twice
(Do think twice)
