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'd go and 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'd go and dance on the floor in the round

People always told me
"Son, be careful of what you do
You can't go around
Breaking young girls' hearts"
Momma always told me
Son, be careful of who you love
And be careful of what you do
Before a lie becomes the truth
And oh...

Billie Jean was never my lover
She's just a girl who claims
That I am the one
Who'd go and dance
On the floor in the round

For forty days and forty nights,
The law was on her side
But who can stand when she's in demand
But her schemes and plans...
Go and danced on the floor in the round

She told my baby we'd danced till three,
Then she looked at me
'Showed a picture and my baby cried-
His eyes looked like mine
Go and dance on the floor in the round

People always told me
Be careful of what you do
You can't go around
Breaking young girls' hearts
But she stood right by me
And the smell of her perfume
Started to consume me
As she led me to her room
And oh, God knows...

Billie Jean was never my lover, no,
She's just a girl who claims
That I am the one
But the kid is not my son

Billie Jean,
What have you done?
