Song Lyric Sunday: Michael Jackson–Thriller

Song Lyric Sunday was created by blogger Helen Vadahti. If you’d like to participate, click here for guidelines.

This week’s theme is “fear.” I posted this song last Halloween, but it fits perfectly with this theme, so I’m posting it again. The video includes the lyrics, and I’ll paste them below as well. Enjoy, and stay safe.

Thriller
Michael Jackson
Ahahahahahahahaha
It’s close to midnight
Something evil’s lurking from 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 your 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, yeah
Ahahahahahahahaha
I’m gonna bring it tonight
Ahahahahahahahaha
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
Girl but all the while
You hear a creature creeping up behind
You’re out of time
‘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
Ahahahahahahahaha
I’m gonna thrill ya tonight
Get up, get up
Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y’all’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
I’m gonna thrill ya tonight
I’m gonna thrill ya tonight
Ooh, babe
I’m gonna thrill ya tonight
‘Cause this is thriller
‘Cause this is thriller
‘Cause this is thriller
‘Cause this is thriller
Get up, get up (I’m gonna thrill you tonight)
I’m gonna thrill you tonight
I’m gonna thrill you tonight
I’m gonna thrill you tonight
‘Cause this is thriller
