"The Girl Is Mine" as written by and Michael Jackson....
Every night she walks right in my dreams
Since I met her from the start
I'm so proud I am the only one
Who is special in her heart

The girl is mine
The doggone girl is mine
I know she's mine
Because the doggone girl is mine

I don't understand the way you think
Saying that she's yours not mine
Sending roses and your silly dreams
Really just a waste of time

Because she's mine
The doggone girl is mine
Don't waste your time
Because the doggone girl is mine

I love you more than he
(take you anywhere)

But I love you endlessly
(loving we will share)

So come and go with me
To one town

But we both cannot have her
So it's one or the other
And one day you'll discover
That she's my girl forever and ever

I don't build your hopes to be let down
'Cause I really feel it's time

I know she'll tell you I'm the one for her
'Cause she said I blow her mind

The girl is mine
The doggone girl is mine
Don't waste your time
Because the doggone girl is mine

She's mine, she's mine
No, no, no, she's mine
The girl is mine, the girl is mine
The girl is mine, the girl is mine

The girl is mine, (yep) she's mine
The girl is mine, (yep) she's mine

Don't waste your time
Because the doggone girl is mine
The girl is mine, the girl is mine

Michael, we're not going to fight about this, okay
Paul, I think I told you, I'm a lover not a fighter
I've heard it all before, Michael, she told me that I'm her forever lover,
You know, don't you remember
Well, after loving me, she said she couldn't love another
Is that what she said
Yes, she said it, you keep dreaming
I don't believe it

The girl is mine (mine, mine, mine)

    General CommentThis song is about two guys who love the same girl. They're both in denial and think that she only loves him, when in reality she's playing both of them like a drum machine. They're being used and she's getting perks (she's got two of the greatest performers of the 20th century to buy her whatever she wants). They act like they're good friends and probably could be if there wasn't a girl standing the way. Who knows? Without this girl they might make a couple grammy winning songs together.

    General Commentpolythenepam, this song was written long before MJ/Beatles had issues, and also long before any molestation charges!

    The song is just about 2 guys fighting over a girl. Self explanatory, really.

    General CommentAn incredible song by two incredible artists.

    Regardless of the allegations against Michael Jackson, he is still a musical genius, completely worthy of the title alongside McCartney.

    Excellent work.

    General Commentthis song is fucking fantastic/hilarious/disturbing! paul mccartney sucks (even tho i am a dedicated fan of the beatles) and MJs in trouble with the law the the alleged molestation shit but still they said 'hey..lets put our differences aside and make a creepy song where we obsess over a girl like shes our property!' to which MJ added -'jk i only like little boys' but hey i dig the song
