Het nummer gaat over twee mannen die vechten voor de liefde van één vrouw. Allebei zeggen ze dat ze meer van de vrouw kunnen houden dan de andere. Het eindigt in een gesproken "gevecht" tegen het einde van het nummer waarbij Jackson de zin Paul, "I think I told you, I’m a lover, not a fighter" uitspreekt. In 1998 werd een remix van het nummer uitgebracht als single. Deze versie, "The Girl Is Mine 2008", was een samenwerking tussen Michael en Will.i.am. In Nederland bereikte de single de hitparade. Michael Jackson en Paul McCartney namen later nog twee andere duetten op: "Say, Say, Say" en "The Man" in 1983. Ze stonden allebei op het album "Pipes of Peace" van Paul McCartney.


Wist je dat? De R&B-zangeressen Brandy en Monica namen in 1998 het duet "The Boy Is Mine" op. Ook al is dit geen echte cover, het leek er veel op doordat ook dit nummer een gesproken "gevecht" bevatte.

Every night she walks right in my dreams
Since I met her from the start
I'm so proud I am the only one who is special in her heart
The girl is mine, the doggone girl is mine
I know she's mine because the doggone girl is mine

I don't understand the way you think
Saying that she's yours not mine
Sending roses and your silly dreams
Really just a waste of time
Because she's mine, the doggone girl is mine
Don't waste your time because the doggone girl is mine

I love you more than he (Take you anywhere)
But I love you endlessly (Loving we will share)
So come and go with me, two on the town

But we both cannot have her, so it's one or the other
And one day you'll discover
That she's my girl forever and ever

Don't build your hopes to be let down
Cause I really feel it's time
I know she'll tell you I'm the one for her
Cause she said I blow her mind
The girl is mine, the doggone girl is mine
Don't waste your time because the doggone girl is mine

She's mine, she's mine
No, no, no, she's mine
The girl is mine, the girl is mine
The girl is mine, the girl is mine

The girl is mine (mine mine), yep she's mine (mine mine)
The girl is mine (mine mine), yes she's mine (mine mine)

Don't waste your time because the doggone girl is mine
The girl is mine, the girl is mine

Michael, we're not going to fight about this, okay
Paul, I think I told you, I'm a lover not a fighter
I've heard it all before Michael
She told me that I'm her forever lover
You know, don't you remember
Well, after loving me, she said she couldn't love another
Is that what she said?
Yes, she said it, you keep dreaming

I don't believe it, no (mine mine)
The girl is mine (mine, mine, mine)
The girl is mine (mine, mine, mine)...
