Verse 1:
Oó. 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, oó,
((Who would dance on the floor in the round?"{1}))
Oó. She says, I am the one,
((Who would dance on the floor in the round.))

Verse 2:
She told me her name was Billie Jean and she caused a scene.
Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed of being the one, oó,
((Who would dance on the floor in the round.)) Oó!

Bridge 1:
People always told me, "Be careful of what you do. Dah!
Don’t go aroun' breakin' young girl’s hearts."
(Hee-ee-ee.)
And mother always told me, "Ah, be careful of who you love,
And be careful what you do 'cause the lie becomes the truth."
Hey-hey.

Chorus:
((Dah-Billie Jean is not my lover, oó,))
((She’s just a girl)) who claims that I am the one.
(Ooo, baby,)
((But the kid is not my son.)) Ooo! Oó!
((She says, I am the one,)) (Oh, yay.)
((But the kid is not my son.))
Hee-hee-hee. Oh, no. Hee-hee-hee. Ooo!

Verse 3:
For forty days and for forty nights 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.)) Oó!
So take my strong advice, just ((remember to always think twice.))
(Do think twice!) Do think twice! (Ooh!)

Verse 4:
She told my baby, we danced till three.
And she looked at me and showed a photo of baby. Cry!
His eyes were like mine. (Oh, no!)
((Gonna dance on the floor in the round,)) babe.
Ooo! Hee-hee-hee. Oó! Ah!

Bridge 2:
People always told me, "Be careful of what you do. Dah!
Don’t go aroun' breakin' young girl’s hearts."
(He-ee-ee/Don’t break no hearts.)
But she came and stood right by me, a-just the smell of sweet perfume.
This happened much too soon, ah-she called me to her room.

Chorus:
Hey-hey, Dah-((Billie Jean is not my lover. Ooo,))
((She’s just a girl who claims that I am the one.)) Oó!
((But the kid is not my son.)) Dah!
No-no-no, na-na-na no-no-no. (Oooo!)

((Billie Jean is not my lover,)) oó,
((She’s just a girl who claims that I am the one.))
But ((the kid is not my son.)) No! No!
((She says I am the one)) (oh, baby) ((but the kid is not my son.))
(No.) Hee-hee-hee.

Instrumental break.
Yeah!
Whoo!

((She says I am the one.)) Dah!
((But the kid is not my son.))
Da-da-da. Ooo!

Chorus:
Dah-((Billie Jean is not my lover,)) oó,
((She’s just a girl)) who claims that I am the one.
(No one dear to me, babe.)
((But the kid is not my son.))
(No-no-no.)/No-no-no./(No-no-no.)
((She say I am the one,)) (no-no-no,)
((But the kid is not my son.)) Oó!

(She says I am the one.)
You know what you did.
(She says he is my son.)
Breakin’ my heart, babe.
(She says I am the one.)

Dah-((Billie Jean is not my lover. Oó!))
Dah-((Billie Jean is not my lover. Oó!))
Dah-((Billie Jean is not my lover. Oó!))
Fade.
Dah-((Billie Jean is not my lover. Oó!))
Dah-((Billie Jean is not my lover. Oó!))
Dah-((Billie Jean is not my lover. Oó!))
