Michael Jackson crept back into the Billboard Hot this week dated Nov. 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. 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 the creature creepin' up behind You're out of time. 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, oh. They're out to get you There's demons closing in on every side They will possess you Unless you change that number on your dial. Now is the time For you and I to cuddle close together, yeah All through 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 ever dare try Thriller, thriller night So let me hold you tight and share a killer, diller Chiller thriller here tonight. I'm gonna thrill you tonight Darkness falls across the land The midnight 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. I'm gonna thrill you tonight Thriller, ohh baby Thriller I'm gonna thrill you tonight Thriller night Thriller, all night, oh baby I'm gonna thrill you tonight Thriller, thriller night Oh baby I'm gonna thrill you tonight Thriller, all night oh baby Thriller night Thriller night.
