I usually play the whole chords and just play with the high E string, but play it they way you feel.


[Intro]

Em


[Verse]

Em
She was more like a beauty queen from a movie scene
                                                  Am
I said don't mind, but what do you mean I am the one
                                      Em
Who will dance on the floor in the round 
                   Am                                       Em
She said I am the one who will dance on the floor in the round


Em
She told me her name was Billie Jean, as she caused a scene
                                                            Am
Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed of being the one
                                      Em
Who will dance on the floor in the round


C                        Em
People 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
Billie Jean is not my lover
                                           Am
She's just a girl who claims that I am the one
                       Em
But the kid is not my son
                   Am                        Em
She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son


[Verse]

Em
For forty days and forty nights

The law was on her side

But who can stand when she's in demand
                Am
Her schemes and plans
                                        Em
'cause we danced on the floor in the round
                    Am                                  Em
So take my strong advice, just remember to always think twice
(do think twice.)


Em
She told my baby we'd danced 'til three

Then she looked at me

She showed a photo of a baby crying
                     Am
His eyes looked like mine
                                Em
Go on dance on the floor in the round, baby


C                        Em
People always told me be careful of what you do
          C                                 Em
And don't go around breaking young girls' hearts
    C
She came and stood right by me
         Em
Then the smell of sweet perfume
     C
This happened much too soon
    B7
She called me to her room


[Chorus]

Em
Billie Jean is not my lover
                                           Am
She's just a girl who claims that I am the one
                      Em
But the kid is not my son

Billie Jean is not my lover
                                           Am
She's just a girl who claims that I am the one
                      Em
But the kid is not my son
                  Am                         Em
She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son
                  Am                         Em
She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son

Em
Billie Jean is not my lover
                                           Am
She's just a girl who claims that I am the one
                      Em
But the kid is not my son
                  Am                         Em (for the rest of the song)
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


[Outro]

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
Billie Jean is not my lover

Does anybody know what the strumming pattern in? I'm just improvising with my own pattern. But if there's a generic one, can somebody let me know?
