MICHAEL JACKSON

 

 


THRILLER

It's close to midnight and something evil's a-lurkin' 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

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
And no one's gonna save you from the beast about to strike
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

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 creepin' up behind
You're out of time

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
There ain't no second chance against the thing with forty eyes
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

Night creatures call
And the dead start to walk in their masquerade
There's no escapin' the jaws of the alien this time (they're open wide)
This is the end of your life

They're out to get you, there's demons closing in on every side
They will possess you unless you change the number on your dial
Now is the time for you and I to cuddle close together
All thru the night I'll save you from the terrors on the screen,
I'll make you see

That it's a thriller, thriller night
'Cause I can thrill you more than any ghost would dare to try
Girl, this is thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a killer, diller, chiller,
Thriller here tonight

That it's a thriller, thriller night
'Cause I can thrill you more than any ghost would dare to try
Girl, this is thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a killer, diller...

Darkness falls across the land
The midnite hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y'awl's 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 foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzly 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


BEAT IT

They told him don't you ever come around here
Don't wanna see your face, you better disappear
The fire's in their eyes and their words are really clear
So beat it, just beat it

You better run, you better do what you can
Don't wanna see no blood, don't be a macho man
You wanna be tough, better do what you can
So beat it, but you wanna be bad

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right
Just beat it, beat it (x4)

They're out to get you, better leave while you can
Don't wanna be a boy, you wanna be a man
You wanna stay alive, better do what you can
So beat it, just beat it

You have to show them that you're really not scared
You're playin' with your life, this ain't no truth or dare
They'll kick you, then they beat you,
Then they'll tell you it's fair
So beat it, but you wanna be bad

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right
Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it

No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right

Just beat it, beat it
Beat it, beat it, beat it Beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or who's right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right
Just beat it, beat it

Beat it, beat it, beat it Beat it, (Hoo Hoo!) beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or who's right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right

Just beat it, (Hoo Hoo!) beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Just beat it, beat it
Beat it, beat it, beat it


BILLIE JEAN

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 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 
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 
She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son 

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 
So take my strong advice, just remember to always think twice
(Do think twice) Do think twice! (Achakoo!) 

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 (oh, no!) 
'Cause we danced on the floor in the round, baby (Pa hoo (hee hee hee) Ta, uh) 

People always told me be careful of what you do 
And don't go around breaking young girls' hearts 
She came and stood right by me 
Then 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 claims that I am the one 
But the kid is not my son 

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 
She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son 

She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son 
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 
She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son 

She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son 
She says I am the one 

Billie Jean is not my lover (x5)

Billie Jean is (x3)

Not my lover (x4) 

Billie Jean is not my lover (she is just a girl) (x4)

Billie Jean is (x2)

Billie Jean is not my lover (x2) 

Billie Jean is (x2)

Billie Jean is not my lover (x2)

Billie Jean is (x2)

BLACK OR WHITE

"Hey!"
"What?"
"Turn it off."
"Dad, this is the best part!"
"Turn it off."
"No!"
"It's too late for this. Turn it off!"
"Dad, this is the best part! Come on!"
"No. Turn it off now!"
"No, this is the---I wanna listen to it, okay?"
"Yeah, right. Too late? Sure. Eat this."

Ow! Ow!

I took my baby on a Saturday bang
Boy is that girl with you?
Yes we're one and the same
Now I believe in miracles
And a miracle has happened tonight
Hee!

But if
You're thinkin about my baby
It don't matter if you're
Black or white

They print my message in the Saturday Sun
I had to tell them I ain't second to none
And I told about equality
And it's true
Either you're wrong or you're right

But if
You're thinkin about my baby
It don't matter if you're
Black or white

I am tired of this devil
I am tired of this stuff
I am tired of this business
Girl when the going gets rough
I ain't scared of your brother
I ain't scared of no sheets
I ain't scared of nobody
Girl when the going gets mean

Protection
For gangs clubs and nations
Causing grief in human relations
It's a turf war
On a global scale
I'd rather hear both sides of the tale
See it's not about races
Just places
Faces
Where your blood comes from
It's where your space is
I've seen the bright get duller
I'm not gonna spend my life being a color

Don't tell me you agree with me
When I saw you kicking dirt in my eye

But if
You're thinkin about my baby
It don't matter if you're
Black or white

I said
If you're thinkin of being my baby
It don't matter if you're
Black or white

I said
If you're thinkin of being my brother
It don't matter if you're
Black or white

Ooh ooh
Yeah yeah yeah now
Ooh ooh
Yeah yeah yeah now
All right

It's black
It's white
It's tough for you to get by
Yeah yeah yeah now
It's black
It's white
Whoo!

It's black ...


REMEMBER THE TIME

(Love...Every time I see you, hahaha)

Do you remember
When we fell in love
We were young and innocent then
Do you remember how it all began
It just
Seemed like heaven
So why
Did it end

Do you remember
Back in the fall
We'd be together all day long
Do you remember
Us holding hands
In each other's eyes we'd stare
Tell me

Do you remember the time
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time
When we first met girl
Do you remember the time
(Oh I)
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time

Do you remember
How we used to talk
You know we'd stay on the phone at night till dawn
Do you remember
All the things we said
Like I
Love you so
I'll never
Let you go

Do you remember
Back in the spring
Every morning bird would sing
Do you remember
Those special times
That just go on and on
In the back of my mind

Do you remember the time
(Oh I)
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time
When we first met girl
Do you remember the time
(Oh I)
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time

Those sweet memories
Will always be
Dear to me
And girl
No matter what we said
I will never forget what we did
Now baby

Do you remember the time
(Do you remember)
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time
When we first met girl
Do you remember the time
(Oh I)
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time
(Remember my baby)
Do you remember the time
(Cuz I remember)
When we fell in love
Do you remember the time
All in my mind girl
Do you remember the time
(Oh I)
When we fell in love
Do you remember the the time
(Remember my baby)

(Remember the times)
Whoo!
(Remember the times)
Do you remember girl
(Remember the times)
On the phone
You and me

Till dawn
Two or three
What about us girl

On the beach

The whole system sucks

(Janet)
Peek in the shadow

I've got to get stronger
And I won't give up the fight

(Michael)
With such confusions don't it make you wanna scream
Your bash abusin' victimize within the scheme

THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT US

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, aggravation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Bang bang, shock dead
Everybody's gone mad

All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us

Beat me, hate me
You can never break me
Will me, thrill me
You can never kill me
Do me, Sue me
Everybody do me
Kick me, strike me
Don't you black or white me

All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us

Tell me what has become of my life
I have a wife and two children who love me
I am the victim of police brutality, now
I'm tired of bein' the victim of hate
You're rapin' me of my pride
Oh, for God's sake
I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy...
Set me free

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
trepidation, speculation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
black man, black mail
Throw your brother in jail

All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us

Tell me what has become of my rights
Am I invisible because you ignore me?
Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now
I'm tired of bein' the victim of shame
They're throwing me in a class with a bad name
I can't believe this is the land from which I came
You know I do really hate to say it
The government don't wanna see
But if Roosevelt was livin'
He wouldn't let this be, no, no

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, speculation
Everybody litigation
Beat me, bash me
You can never trash me
Hit me, kick me
You can never get me

All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us

Some things in life they just don't wanna see
But if Martin Luther was livin'
He wouldn't let this be

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, segregation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Kick me, strike me
Don't you wrong or right me

All I wanna say is that

All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us


STRANGER IN MOSCOW

I was wandering in the rain
Mask of life, feelin' insane
Swift and sudden fall from grace
Sunny days seem far away
Kremlin's shadow belittlin' me
Stalin's tomb won't let me be
On and on and on it came
Wish the rain would just let me

How does it feel (How does it feel)
How does it feel
How does it feel
When you're alone
And you're cold inside

Here abandoned in my fame
Armageddon of the brain
KGB was doggin' me
Take my name and just let me be
Then a begger boy called my name
Happy days will drown the pain
On and on and on it came
And again, and again, and again...
Take my name and just let me be

Refrain
How does it feel (How does it feel)
How does it feel (x3)
How does it feel (How does it feel now)
How does it feel (x2)
When you're alone
And you're cold inside

Refrain

Like stranger in Moscow (x2)
We're talkin' danger
We're talkin' danger, baby
Like stranger in Moscow
We're talkin' danger
We're talkin' danger, baby
Like stranger in Moscow
I'm livin' lonely
I'm livin' lonely, baby
Stranger in Moscow

(Interrogateur du KGB -
Traduction du russe en anglais)
"Why have you come from the West?
Confess! To steal the great achievements of
the people, the accomplishments of the workers..."


EARTH SONG

What about sunrise
What about rain
What about all the things
That you said we were to gain...
What about killing fields
Is there a time
What about all the things
That you said was yours and mine...
Did you ever stop to notice
All the blood we've shed before
Did you ever stop to notice
The crying Earth the weeping shores?

Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah (x2)

What have we done to the world
Look what we've done
What about all the peace
That you pledge your only son...
What about flowering fields
Is there a time
What about all the dreams
That you said was yours and mine...
Did you ever stop to notice
All the children dead from war
Did you ever stop to notice
The crying Earth the weeping shores

Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah (x2)

I used to dream
I used to glance beyond the stars
Now I don't know where we are
Although I know we've drifted far

Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah (x4)

Burnt despite our pleas
(What about us)

(What about it)
Torn apart by creed
(What about us)
What about the common man
(What about us)
Can't we set him free
(What about us)
What about children dying
(What about us)
Can't you hear them cry
(What about us)
Where did we go wrong
(ooo, ooo)
Someone tell me why
(What about us)
What about babies
(What about it)
What about the days
(What about us)
What about all their joy
(What about us)
