About this tab version
Based off of the original version of the song- During the "Knock, knock" part, keep the B fingering and just slide up and down to get all the rest of the chords in that section with that fingering- it sounds closer than trying to do just the regular fingering. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Verse 1]

[MICHAEL]
     A       B      A        B      A             B       C#m
I am hanging in the bathroom at the biggest party of the fall
        A          B       A         B    A             B         E
I could stay right here or disappear, and nobody'd even notice at all
(alternate A B until next verse)
      A       B    A      B           A           B       C#m
I'm a creeper in a bathroom 'cause my buddy kinda left me alone
        A           B              A      B      A                  B          E
But I'd rather fake pee than stand awkwardly, or pretend to check a text on my phone
G#m                                       B       C#m B
Everything felt fine when I was half of a pair
               G#m                             A    B 
Now through no fault of mine, there's no other half there

[Chorus]
             E              B         C#m            A              E
Now I'm just Michael in the bathroom, Michael in the bathroom, at a party
           A         B
Forget how long it's been
         E              B         C#m             A            G#m
I'm just Michael in the bathroom, Michael in the bathroom at a party
       A     B
No you can't come in!
    A               B
I'm waiting it out 'til it's time to leave
    C#m                   F#7
And picking at grout as I softly grieve
         G#m             G#          C#m            F#    A              B
I'm just Michael who you don't know, Michael flyin' solo, Michael in the bathroom

A  B  A  B
by himself
A  B  A  B
Oh, by himself

[Verse 2]

     A       B        A          B    A        B       C#m
I am hiding, but he's out there, just ignoring all our history
         A    B               A       B            A             B          E
Memories get erased, and I'll get replaced, with a newer, cooler version of me
      G#m                             B
And I hear a drunk girl sing along to Whitney through the door - I wanna dance with somebody!
       G#m                                                  A                                 B
And my feelings sink, 'cause it makes me think: now there's no one to make fun of drunk girls with anymore!

[Chorus]
              E              B         C#m            A             E
Now it's just Michael in the bathroom, Michael in the bathroom at a party
       A          B
I half regret the beers
E              B         C#m            A             G#m
Michael in the bathroom, Michael in the bathroom at a party
           A        B
As I choke back the tears
             A                        B
I'll wait as long as I need, until my face is dry
             C#m                  F#7
Or I'll just blame it on weed, or something in my eye!
         G#m             G#          C#m            F#
I'm just Michael who you don't know, Michael flyin' solo
A              B           A B A B
Michael in the bathroom by himself!

[Bridge]

A             B
Knock, knock, knock, knock
A             B
They're gonna start to shout soon
A             B
Knock, knock, knock, knock
A             B
Oh hell yeah, I'll be out soon

[MICHAEL + ENSEMBLE]
Bb            C
Knock, knock, knock, knock

[MICHAEL]
Bb            C
It sucks you left me here alone-

[MICHAEL + ENSEMBLE]
Bb            C
Knock, knock, knock, knock

[MICHAEL]
Bb            C
Here in this teenage battle zone-

[MICHAEL + ENSEMBLE]
C             D
Clang, clang, clang, clang

[MICHAEL]
C             D
I feel the pressure blowing up-

[MICHAEL + ENSEMBLE]
C           D
Bang, bang, bang, bang

[MICHAEL]
C           D
My big mistake was showing up-

[MICHAEL + ENSEMBLE]
C#           D#
Splash, splash, splash, splash

[MICHAEL]
C#           D#              C#m 
I throw some water in my face
                         F#
And I am in a better place
                       A 
I go to open up the door
                 B
But I can't hear knocking
Anymore

A B A B A B A B

[Pre-Chorus]

G#m
And I can't help but yearn
                B  C#m B
For a different time
           G#m
And then I look in the mirror
        G#m
And the present is clearer
            A           B
And there's no denying, I'm just-

[Chorus] 

E B C#m A

     E
At a party
           A      B
Is there a sadder sight than-
E B
*hums*
C#m            A             E
Michael in the bathroom at a party
          A       B
This is a heinous night
         A                              B
I wish I stayed at home in bed watching cable porn
          C#m
Or wish I offed myself instead
           F#7
Wish I was never born!
         G#m             G#
I'm just Michael who's a loner
   C#m          F#
So he must be a stoner
G#m        G#
Rides a PT Cruiser
C#m             F#
God he's such a loser
G#m            G#
Michael flyin' solo
C#m           F#
Who you think that you know
A              B           A B A B
Michael in the bathroom by himself
       A B A B
Oh, by himself
       A B A B
Oh, by himself
A            B        A     B
All you know about me is my name
A       
Awesome party
B
I'm so glad I came

if you want an easier version that sounds just as good, transpose it -2 and put a capo on the second fret
