D7
 It's close to midnight,
    Am7
And something evil's,
Lurking in the dark.
D7
 Under the moonlight,
    Am7
You see a sight,
That almost stops your heart.

           D7
You try to scream,
But terror takes the sound,
           Am7
Before you make it.
             D7
You start to freeze,
As horror looks you,
                  Am7
Right between the eyes;
Fmaj7        Em
 You're para-lyzed.
'Cos this is;

From the beast about to strike.

Verse 2:

D7
 You hear the door slam,
    Am7
And realize,
There's nowhere left to run.
D7
 You feel the cold hand,
    Am7
And wonder,
If you'll ever see the sun.

	       D7
You close your eyes,
And hope that this is,
           Am7
Just imagi-nation.
            D7
But all the while,
You hear the creature,
               Am7
Creepin' up be-hind,
Fmaj7          Em
 You're out of time.
'Cos this is;

Chorus 2:

Am     C
 Thril-ler,
D         Am7
 Thriller night,
    D7
And no one's gonna save you,
         Dm7
From the beast about to strike.
You know it's;

Am     C
 Thril-ler,
D         Am7
 Thriller night,
       D7
You're fighting for your life,
         F7      D7
Inside a killer, thriller,
F/G Am7
 To-night.

Bridge 1:

D7
 Night creatures call,
And the dead start to walk,
         Fmaj9       G
In their masquerade.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/michael_jackson/thriller_crd.html ]
Am7
 There's no escapin',
    C/G
The jaws of the,
           Em7-5
Alien this time,
Fmaj7
 This is the end,
        E7sus4  E7
Of your life.

Verse 3:

D7
 They're out to get you,
        Am7
There's demons,
Closing in on every side.
D7
 They will possess you,
Un-less you change,
    Am7
The number on your dial.

           D7
Now is the time,
For you and I to cuddle,
         Am7
Close to-gether.
                D7
All through the night,
I'll save you from the terror,
       Am7
On the screen;
Fmaj7          Em
 I'll make you see,
That this is;

         Dm7
Than any ghost would dare to try.
Girl, this is;

 Thriller night,
   D7
So let me hold you tight,
            F7
And share a killer,
D7       F/G  Am7
 Diller, chil-ler,
C
 Thriller here tonight.

Coda:

(Ad-lib: Am  F/A  G/A  D/A)

(Vincent Price)

(Spoken):

Darkness falls across the land,
The midnight hour is close at hand.
Creatures crawl in search of blood,
To terrorize y'awl's neighbourhood.

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 foulest stench is in the air,
The funk of forty thousand years,
And grizzy ghouls from every tomb,
Are closing in to seal your doom.

And though you fight to stay alive,
Your body starts to shiver,
For no mere mortal can resist,
The evil of the thriller...
