Lyrics to song Thriller (Video Version) by Michael Jackson

A white convertible pulls up, deep in the woods,
then suddenly stops. Michael puts the
Break on, realizing that his car is in need of gas.
He looks over at his girlfriend, Ola,
Who thinks he has stopped, only to have a quick bang in the back seat

Spoken Michael Jackson
Honestly, we're out of gas.

Spoken Ola Ray
So, what are we gonna do now?

They begin walking, not talking at first, until
Michael strikes up a conversation

Spoken Ola Ray
I'm sorry I didn't believe you.

Spoken Michael Jackson
Can I ask you something?

Spoken Ola Ray
What?

Spoken Michael Jackson
You know I like you, don't you?

Spoken Ola Ray
Yes.

Spoken Michael Jackson
And I hope you like me the way I like you.

Spoken Ola Ray
Yes.

Spoken Michael Jackson
I was wondering if...you would be my girl.

Spoken Ola Ray
Oh, Michael.

They hug passionately. He takes out an
engagement ring, and places it on Ola's
Finger. She holds her hand up, and sheer happiness

Spoken Ola Ray
It's beautiful.

Spoken Michael Jackson
Now, it's official. I have something I want to tell you.

Spoken Ola Ray
Yes, Michael?

Spoken Michael Jackson
I'm not like other guys.

Spoken Ola Ray
Of course not, that's why I love you.

Spoken Michael Jackson
No, I mean I'm different.

Spoken Ola Ray
What are you talking about?

Suddenly, the full moon appears. Michael begins
squirming around, strangely.
Ola looks confused and concerned,
until Michael falls to the grown in severe agony

Spoken Ola Ray
Are you all right?

Spoken Michael Jackson (warped scary voice)
Go away!

Michael jumps up with cat eyes and sharp fangs.
Ola screams in utter fright, as
She watches Michael turn from human to
werewolf. She stands there, screaming
In horror, as Michael continues to transform
into a cat-like werewolf. The change
Completes, as Ola runs off into the woods. The wolf goes after, and knocks
Down a tree with full force. Ola runs and runs,
as the wolf lets out a frightening
Howl, and then finally catches up to Ola,
knocking her fown, flat on her back.
She stares at him in sheer terror, as he is
about to strike. He strikes her, as
The people in the audience in the movie
theater scream with horror. Michael
And Ola sit in the audience, with Michael
enjoying the film, with Ola terrified

Spoken Cop (in film)
Sheriff, he's over here. God, look at that thing. LOOK OUT!

Spoken Ola Ray
Can we get out of here?

Spoken Michael Jackson
No, I'm enjoying this.

Spoken Ola Ray
Well, I can't watch. Excuse me.

Ola gets up, scared to death and a little
ticked off at the fact that Michael Showed no
sympathy to how scared Ola is.
He takes another bite of his Popcorn,
then hands it to someone else,
as he gets up and goes to console Ola

Spoken Movie Announcer
It's scrolled in blood. What's it say? "See you next Wednesday"?

"Thriller" starts as Michael makes out to
the front of the movie theater, to
Meet up with Ola

Spoken Michael Jackson
It's only a movie.

Spoken Ola Ray
That's not funny.

Spoken Michael Jackson
You were scared, weren't ya?

Spoken Ola Ray
I wasn't that scared?

She begins walking

Spoken Michael Jackson
Yeah, you were scared.

Michael catches up to Ola, and the song really
begins, as the two walk down the
Endless dark road, laughing and having a good time together

Michael Jackson
It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking
in the dark. Under the moonlight,
You see a sight that almost stops your heart. You
try to scream, but terror takes the
Sound before you make it. You start to freeze as
horror looks you right between the
Eyes, you're paralyzed.

Michael Jackson
You hear the door slam and realize there's nowhere
left to run. You feel the cold hand
And wonder if you'll ever see the sun. You close
your eyes, and hope that this is just
Imagination. But all the while, you hear the
creature creeping up behind, you're out of Time.

Michael Jackson
They're out to get you, there's demons closing in
on every side. They will possess
You, unless you change that number on your dial,
and now is the time for you and I
To cuddle close together, yeah. All through the night,
I'll save you from the terror on the
Screen. I'll make you see.

As the song continues, Michael and Ola continue
on their way and pass by a sinister
Looking cemetery, where all the dead corpses
begin arising from their graves, like
Right out of "Night Of The Living Dead"

Vincent Price
Darkness falls across the land, the midnight hour
is close at hand. Creatures crawl in
Search of blood, to terrorize y'alls
neighborhood. And whosoever shall be found
Without the soul for getting down, must stand
and face the hounds of hell and rot
Inside a corpse's shell.

The zombies continue to arise from their graves,
and leave the cemetery, where they
Find their way to the street

Vincent Price
The foulest stench is in the air, the funk of 40,000
years, and grizzly ghouls from every
Tomb are closing in to seal your doom. And,
though, fight to stay alive, your body
Starts to shiver, for no mere mortal can resist the evil of the thriller.

As the song suddenly stops, Michael and Ola
enter the streetside to find all the
Zombies surrounding them. They look around in
sheer terror. They try to hold onto
Each other, as the zombies draw closer and
closer to them. As Ola looks around in
Horror, she turns to Michael and finds that
Michael is now...one of them. The
Zombified Michael then leads the zombies into a
dance as the song starts up again
In Instrumental form. The dance is spectacular,
where they end the dance with a
Knee-walk, where Michael turns around, no longer a zombie

Chorus
'Cause this thriller, thriller night, and no one's
gonna save you from the beast about
To strike. You know it's thriller, thriller. You're
fighting for live inside a killer, thriller.
Thriller, 'cause I can thrill you more than any
ghost would date to try. Thriller night.
So, let me hold you tight and share a killer,
diller, chiller, thriller here tonight.
'Cause this is thriller, thriller night. Girl, I can
thrill you more than any ghost would
Dare try. Thriller night. So, let me hold you
tight and share killer, thriller. Ow!

As the song continues instrumentally, Michael
turns back into the zombie, and is
Still fronting the rest of the zombies, as Ola runs
off from the zombies in horror. She
Finds and old-abandoned, seemingly haunted,
house. The song fades out, as the
Zombies approach the house, growling and
moaning. Ola enters the living room and
Locks the door, while putting a piece of furniture
in front of the door. She backs up
To the window, where the zombies bust through.
She screams, and then runs over
To the couch. She sits there, screaming in
fright, as the zombies bust their way
Into the house. Michael is the final zombie to
enter the house, by busting in
Through the front door. He throws aside the
furniture that is blocking the rest of
The door. He and the zombies approach Ola, but
all Ola can do is sit there in
Sheer horror. Michael then grabs Ola, causing
her to scream. She looks up at
Michael, and realizes that she was just dreaming
after falling asleep at Michael's House

Spoken Michael Jackson
What's the problem?

Ola looks at Michael, still a little confused

Spoken Michael Jackson
Come on, I'll take you home.

She smiles and gets up, relieved that what
she just went through was only a
Horrifying nightmare and nothing more. As they
begin to walk, Michael faces the
Camera and smiles, as he eyes transform into
the wolf's eyes, sort of making
Us think, "Was it a dream or was it not?"

Vincent Price
Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

Chorus
'Cause this thriller, thriller night, and no one's
gonna save you from the beast about
To strike. You know it's thriller, thriller. You're
fighting for live inside a killer, thriller.
Thriller, 'cause I can thrill you more than any
ghost would dare to try. Thriller night.
So, let me hold you tight and share a killer,
diller, chiller, thriller here tonight.
'Cause this is thriller, thriller night. Girl, I can
thrill you more than any ghost would
Dare try. Thriller night. So, let me hold you
tight and share killer, thriller. Ow!

The show has ended, leaving the zombies to head back to their graves
