Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
The song is a bit tricky solely because of the unusual strumming pattern and time signature. 
The intro and verses in this song are in 17/8, a very weird time signature. 
It helps when playing to count to 9, then count to 8, then back to 9, etc. 
The bridge (I should leave it alone part) and the chorus are in regular 4/4. 
Listen to the song very carefully to get the exact strumming pattern right.

During the verses, only play the Em once.
The C in the verses don't have the high e, its just x3201x.
The F is 133211.

Am                                     C
I should leave it alone but you're not right

C   Em     F
You should know me better than that

Your comment about the verse timing makes it more confusing then it is. It simply alternates bars of 4/4 then 5/4
