Chris Cornell Billie Jean Lyrics

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
Who will dance on the floor in the round
She said I am the one, who will dance on the floor in the round

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
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 before the lie becomes the truth

Billie Jean is not my lover
She's just a girl who says that I am the one
But the kid is not my son
She says I am the one
But the kid is not my son

For forty days and for 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
So take my strong advice, remember to always think twice
(Do think twice)

She told my baby we'd danced till three, then she looked at me
Then showed a photo my baby cried his eyes were like mine
'Cause we danced on the floor in the round

People always told me be careful of what you do
Don't go around breaking young girls' hearts
Then she stood right by me. The smell of sweet perfume.
This happened much too soon. She called me to her room.

Billie Jean is not my lover
She's just a girl who says that I am the one
But the kid is not my son
She says I am the one
But the kid is not my son
So take my strong advice, remember to always think twice
(Do think twice)
