"Thriller"

by Michael Jackson

(In 4/4 time. 14 bar Intro)

verse 1

It's close to mid-night, and something evil's lurking in the dark

Under the moon-light, 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 para-lysed!

chorus

'Cos this is; Thril-ler, Thril-ler night.

And no one's gonna save you from the beast about to strike.

You know it's; Thril-ler, Thril-ler night.

You're fighting for your life, inside a killer, Thriller, to-night.

4 bar interlude

verse 2

You hear the door slam, and realise 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!

chorus

'Cos this is; Thril-ler, Thril-ler night.

And no one's gonna save you from the beast about to strike.

You know it's; Thril-ler, Thril-ler night.

You're fighting for your life, inside a killer, Thriller, to-night.

bridge

Night creature call and the dead start to walk in their masquerade

There's no escapin' the jaws of the alien this time...

This is the end of the line.

verse 3

They're out to get you, there's demons closing in on ev'ry side

They will possess you, unless you change the number on your dial.

Now is the time, for you and I to huddle close together

All through the night, I'll save you from the terror on the screen...

I'll make you see!

chorus

'Cos this is; Thril-ler, Thril-ler night.

And no one's gonna save you from the beast about to strike.

You know it's; Thril-ler, Thril-ler night.

You're fighting for your life, inside a killer, Thriller, to-night.

Church organ 4 bar interlude

Spoken bit

Darkness falls, across the land, the midnight hour is close at hand

Creature's crawl in search of blood, to terrorise the neighbourhood

And though you fight to stay alive, your body starts to shiver

For no mere mortal can resist, the supernatural Thriller!

*laughter*
