Lyrics and explanation


Billie Jean - Placebo

Lyrics Michael Jackson
Billie Jean

She was more like a beauty queen
From a movie scene
I said don't mine, 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 breakin' 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 40 days and 40 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 stong advice,
Just remember to always think twice
(Do think twice)

She told my baby
We danced till three,
And she looked at me, then showed a photo
My baby cried.
His eyes were like mine (oh no)
Can we dance on the floor in the round

People always told me be careful of what you do
And don't go around breakin' young girls' hearts
She cames 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
She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son (x3)

She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son (x2)
She says I am the one
She says he is my son (x3)
Press Quotes

"B.M. : The first record I ever bought was Thriller by Michael Jackson (...)! It's a great pop record, but I'm more into Off The Wall and we often listen to Off The Wall before a concert, dancing in the dressing room listening to Michael Jackson.

Brian Molko, Rolling Stone n°12, October 2003
 


N.B. : Billie Jean was performed to everyone's surprise on the 12th October 2004 at the private concert recorded for the musical program "L'album de la semaine" (on the French TV channel Canal +).
This exclusive version was played off-camera at the request of a very forthcoming Brian Molko.
