Billie Jean (Excerpt)

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 will dance on the floor in the round

People always told me – be careful of what you do
And don’t go around, breaking young girls’ hearts
And mother always told me be careful of who you love
And be careful of what you do – ’cause the lie becomes the truth

Billie Jean is not my lover
She’s just a girl, who, claims that I am the one
But, the kid is not my son (oo)
She says I am the one, but, the kid is not my (son) ee-ee-ee 2x’s – oo

For forty days and forty nights – the 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 (bee – uh)
So take my strong advice, just remember to think twice  (Do think twice)

She told my baby we danced till three – and she looked at me
Then showed a photo – of a baby cryin’, his eyes were like mine
Cau’ we dance on the floor, in the round, babe – ooh – ee-ee-ee

People always told me – be careful of what you do
And don’t go around, breaking young girls’ hearts
A’but she came and stood right by me – a’just th’smell of sweet perfume
A’this happened much too soon – she called me to her room – hey-hey
