Intro:

Em  F#m/E  Em  F#m/E,
Em  F#m/E  Em  F#m/E

Verse 1:

Em       F#m/E
 She was more like,
  Em
A beauty queen,
       F#m/E
From a movie scene,
Em      F#m/E
 I said don't mind,
         Em
But what do you mean,
F#m/E     Am7
 I am the one?
Who will dance on the floor,
       Em    F#m/E
In the round.

Em
 She said;
F#m/E     Am7
 I am the one,
Who will dance on the floor,
       Em
In the round.

Interlude:

Em  F#m/E (x2)

Verse 2:

Em
 She told me,
F#m/E         Em
 Her name was Billie Jean,
       F#m/E
As she caused a scene.
Em          F#m/E
 Then every head turned,
     Em
With eyes that,
           F#m/E     Am7
Dreamed of being the one,
Who will dance on the floor,
       Em
In the round.

Interlude:

Em  F#m/E (x2)

Bridge 1:

C
 People always told me,
   Em
Be careful of what you do,
          C
And don't go around,
                      Em
Breaking young girls' hearts.

    C
And mother always told me,
   Em
Be careful of who you love,
       C
And be careful of what you do,
         B7
'Cos the lie becomes the truth.

Chorus 1:

Em      F#m/E   Em     F#m/E
 Billie Jean is not my lover,
Em            F#m/E
 She's just a girl,
    Em          F#m/E    Am7
Who claims that I am the one.
                      Em  F#m/E
But the kid is not my son.

Em         F#m/E    Am7
 She says; I am the one,
                      Em  F#m/E
But the kid is not my son.

Interlude:

Em  F#m/E (x2)

Verse 3:

Em   F#m/E          Em
 For forty days and forty nights,
            F#m/E
The law was on her side.
Em           F#m/E
 But who can stand,
           Em
When she's in demand,
    F#m/E       Am7
Her schemes and plans?
'Cos we danced on the floor,
       Em    F#m/E
In the round.

Em       F#m/E
 So take my strong advice;
                              Em    F#m/E
Just remember to always think twice.
          Em      F#m/E
(Do think twice).

Verse 3:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/michael_jackson/billie_jean_crd_ver_2.html ]
Em           F#m/E
 She told my baby,
     Em
We'd danced 'till three,
         F#m/E
Then she looked at me,
Em             F#m/E
 Then showed a photo;
   Em
My baby cried...
    F#m/E            Am7
His eyes looked like mine.
Go on dance on the floor,
       Em     F#m/E  Em  F#m/E
In the round, baby.

Bridge 2:

C
 People always told me,
   Em
Be careful of what you do,
          C
And don't go around,
                      Em
Breaking young girls' hearts.

    C
She came and stood right by me,

Then the smell of sweet perfume.
     C
This happened much too soon,
    B7
She called me to her room.
