Lyrics[4]

  • She got your number
  • She know your game
  • She put you under
  • It's so insane
  • Since you seduced her
  • How does it feel
  • To know that woman
  • Is out to kill
  • Every night stance is like takin' a chance
  • It's not about love and romance
  • And now you're gonna get it
  • Every hot man is out takin' a chance
  • It's not about love and romance
  • And now you do regret it
  • To escape the world I've got to enjoy that simple dance
  • And it seemed that everything was on my side
  • (Blood on my side)
  • She seemed sincere like it was love and true romance
  • And now she's out to get me
  • And I just can't take it
  • Just can't break it
  • Susie got your number
  • And Susie ain't your friend
  • Look who took you under
  • With seven inches in
  • Blood is on the dance floor
  • Blood is on the knife
  • Susie got your number
  • And Susie says it's right
  • She got your number
  • How does it feel
  • To know this stranger
  • Is out to kill
  • She got your baby
  • It happened fast
  • If you could only
  • Erase the past
  • Every night stance is like takin' a chances
  • It's not about love and romance
  • And now you're gonna get it
  • Every hot man is out takin' a chance
  • It's not about love and romance
  • And now you do regret it
  • To escape the world I've got to enjoy this simple dance
  • And it seemed that everything was on my side
  • (Blood on my side)
  • It seemed sincere like it was love and true romance
  • And now she's out to get me
  • And I just can't take it
  • Just can't break it
  • Susie got your number
  • And Susie ain't your friend
  • Look who took you under
  • With seven inches in
  • Blood is on the dance floor
  • Blood is on the knife
  • Susie got your number
  • You know Susie says it's right
  • Susie got your number
  • Susie ain't your friend
  • (It's going down, baby)
  • Look who took you under
  • She put seven inches in
  • Blood is on the dance floor
  • Blood is on the knife
  • (It's going down, baby)
  • Susie's got your number
  • Susie says it's right
  • It was blood on the dance floor
  • (Ooh blood on the dance floor)
  • It was blood on the dance floor
  • (Ooh blood on the dance floor)
  • It was blood on the dance floor
  • (Ooh blood on the dance floor)
  • It was blood on the dance floor
  • (Ooh blood on the dance floor)
  • And I just can't take it
  • The girl won't break it

Charts

As a ploy to generate interest in the album, the promotional short film (directed by Michael and Vincent Paterson) premiered in the UK on Top Of The Pops on 28th March 1997 - several weeks before its single release. The single then took the no.1 spot from R. Kelly's I Believe I Can Fly. The lead single peaked at number one in several countries, including the UK.

Trivia

  • The song was originally recorded for Michael's Dangerous album in 1991, but failed to make the final track listing. Teddy Riley, reportedly, was upset that Michael didn't call him to "vacuum clean this old master" - that is, to give the song a more current sound, before its inclusion in the 1997 album, Blood on the Dance Floor: HIStory in the Mix.
  • This song was performed in some concerts of the HIStory World Tour. Few performances had Jackson performing the song in a rare red jacket. Later performances were switched to Jackson wearing a blue uniform.
