There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
The chord progression is fairly easy. I like to use a barred A-chord because it
makes a better sound with the song. This is my first tab and from just listening
to the song a couple times. I'm pretty sure I'm the first person to tab this song
too, so that's pretty cool.

Intro (Bruno Mars):
A                        C#m
I wanna be a billionaire so fucking bad
F#m                           E
Buy all of the things I never had
A                          C#m
I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
F#m                           E
Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen
    F#m          E            A
Oh, every time I close my eyes
  F#m            E             A
I see my name in shining lights
F#m         E          A
A different city every night
C#m  F#m  Bm
Oh   I-I  swear,
The world better prepare
For when I'm a billionaire

Verse 1 and 2 follow the same progression as the beginning A-C#m-F#m-E

3rd chorus is normal, but the 2nd chorus starts at "Oh every time I close my eyes..." 
has a little extra at the end of it where it just repeats billionaire. That little part is 

The end is just A-C#m

If you listen to the song, you'll get the idea of the strumming. Its reggae-esque and a 
catchy song. Hope this helps everyone!

a few things wrong here...its C#7 not C#m...The "oh every time i close my eyes" progression is D-E-F#m, the third time just D-E then A (x-12-13-13-12-12) to A/G# (x-11-13-13-12-12)-F#m-E-D-C#7 ending with one F#m hit...Verse 1 and Verse two are not the same Verse 2 is F#m for 4 off beats to Bm for 4 off beats and repeat as needed...so try that and play along to the song and youll notice that its spot on
