Intro:
EmEm chord - Top 4 strings picked slowly down then up - x 4
 
Verse 1:
EmEm chord
She was more like a beauty queen from a movie scene
                                                 AmAm chord
I said don't mind, but what do you mean I am the one
                                   EmEm chord
Who will dance on the floor in the round
                  AmAm chord                                      EmEm chord
She said I am the one, who will dance on the floor in the round
 
She told me her name was Billie Jean, as she caused a scene
                                                           AmAm chord
Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed of being the one
                                   EmEm chord
Who will dance on the floor in the round
 
 
Bridge:
CC chord                        EmEm chord
People always told me be careful of what you do
      CC chord                               EmEm chord
Don't go around breaking young girls' hearts
    CC chord                        EmEm chord
And mother always told me be careful of who you love
       CC chord                                 B7B7 chord
And be careful of what you do before the lie becomes the truth
 
Chorus:
EmEm chord     AmAm chord      EmEm chord     GG chord       EmEm chord
Billie Jean is not my lover
             AmAm chord       EmEm chord                 AmAm chord  BmBm chord
She's just a girl who says that I am the one
        GG chord      Bm7Bm7 chord    EmEm chord
But the kid is not my son
                  AmAm chord
She says I am the one
        GG chord      Bm7Bm7 chord    EmEm chord
But the kid is not my son
 
Verse 2:
EmEm chord
For forty days and for forty nights. The law was on her side.
                                                        AmAm chord
But who can stand when she's in demand. Her schemes and plans.
                                     EmEm chord
'Cause we danced on the floor in the round
                    AmAm chord                             EmEm chord
So take my strong advice, remember to always think twice
- Do think twice -
 
Verse 3:
EmEm chord
She told my baby we'd danced till three, then she looked at me
                                                     AmAm chord
Then showed a photo my baby cried his eyes were like mine
                                     EmEm chord
'Cause we danced on the floor in the round
 
Bridge:
CC chord                        EmEm chord

      CC chord                               EmEm chord
Don't go around breaking young girls' hearts
         CC chord                      EmEm chord
Then she stood right by me. The smell of sweet perfume.
     CC chord                           B7B7 chord
This happened much too soon. She called me to her room.

                  AmAm chord

Do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming patterns, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you.
