This is my first tab. The guys before me are close, but not quite there. I have 2 
versions. Capo 2 and no capo.
#CAPO 2nd FRET#
[1st Verse]
Em         F#m         G                 F#m
   She Was More Like A Beauty Queen From A Movie Scene
Em        F#m                  G             F#m      Am7
   I Said Don't Mind, But What Do You Mean I Am The One
                                        Em F#m 
Who Will Dance On The Floor In The Round
Em        F#m      Am7                                        Em F#m
She Said I Am The One Who Will Dance On The Floor In The Round
G   F#m

[2nd Verse]
She Told Me Her Name Was Billie Jean, As She Caused A Scene
Then Every Head Turned With Eyes That Dreamed Of Being The One
Who Will Dance On The Floor In The Round

[Bridge]
C                      Em
Mama Always Told Me Be Careful Of What You Do
C                                         Em
And Don't Go Around Breaking Young Girls' Hearts
C                            Em
And Mother Always Told Me Be Careful Of Who You Love
C                             B7
And Be Careful Of What You Do 'Cause The Lie Becomes The Truth

[Chorus]
Em     F#m     Em     F#m
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
Em           F#m      Em                   Am7
She's Just A Girl Who Claims That I Am The One
                        Em F#m 
But The Kid Is Not My Son
Em                  Am7                        Em F#m                       
  She Says I Am The One, But The Kid Is Not My Son
G   F#m

[3rd Verse]
For Forty Days And Forty Nights
The Law Was On Her Side
But Who Can Stand When She's In Demand
Her Schemes And Plans
'Cause We Danced On The Floor In The Round
So Take My Strong Advice, Just Remember To Always Think Twice
(Do Think Twice)

[4th Verse]
She Told My Baby That's A Threat 
As She Looked At Me
Then Showed A Photo Of A Baby Cries 
Eyes Would Like Mine
Go On Dance On The Floor In The Round, Baby

[Bridge]
People Always Told Me Be Careful Of What You Do
And Don't Go Around Breaking Young Girls' Hearts
She Came And Stood Right By Me
Then The Smell Of Sweet Perfume
This Happened Much Too Soon
She Called Me To Her Room

[Chorus]
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
She's Just A Girl Who Claims That I Am The One
But The Kid Is Not My Son
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
She's Just A Girl Who Claims That I Am The One
But The Kid Is Not My Son
She Says I Am The One, But The Kid Is Not My Son
She Says I Am The One, But The Kid Is Not My Son
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
She's Just A Girl Who Claims That I Am The One
But The Kid Is Not My Son
She Says I Am The One, But The Kid Is Not My Son
She Says I Am The One, She Says He Is My Son
She Says I Am The One
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover

An Em with a capo on 2nd isnt a Dm... so you're just kind of contradicting yourself there.
