I love this song; it's a great example of artistic cussing. I play a ukulele so I'm not 
familiar with guitar tabs. Here are the chords and some notes for picking.

INTRO:
chords: G Bm Em C (x2)
picking (similar pattern throughout):
GAB-
GABDB
GF#EDC

       G              Bm
I am a pain in your ass
        Em                            C
And I'm wondering how long it's gonna last
       G             Bm
Be my mirror, be my friend,
        Em
Be the workhouse of the energy
   C
I twist your arm to spin


REFRAIN:
     A                   C
Everyday, like a power station
             G          Bm
You know it isn't good
               Em               G
I know you're burning too much wood
              C
Oh, and you burn out
              Bm
The twisted irony is
                        G
Your ashes come home to me
             Bm
(Come home to me) <-- lyrics second time only
             Em      C
Come home to me

             G
So we take a walk
              Bm
To make some sense
        Em                          C
And I'm wondering if you fancy my advance
       G
I have pushed you
        Bm
Way too far
            Em
And you say Fuck you little princess
         C
Who the hell do you think you are?


REPEAT REFRAIN

G Bm Em C
                                  G
Yeah well your ashes come home to me
             Bm
Come home to me
             Em
Come home to me
                   C                                       G
You know well the circus gonna have you on a fucking mantelpiece
          Bm
The mantelpiece
           Em         C
The mantelpiece

ENDING: (with picking)
G Bm Em C G

I agree with indie: sounds right & thanks. It's a great, funny song.
But some errors in your lyrics: major ones should read:
"And I'm wondering if you'll fancy my defence"
and also:
"'Cos no other sucker's gonna have you on the ****ing mantelpiece"
This is a song about a claws-out argument between a couple, and the girl is pointing out that whatever her partner does, even if he leaves her, when he dies he'll be cremated and she'll get his ashes - and no-one else would want them anyway.

hey, these chords were really helpful, thanks, but im certain you got a few wrong, the refrain should read:

A Bbm
Everyday, like a power station
G Bm
You know it isn't good
Em
I know you're burning too much wood
Am
Oh, and you burn out
D
The twisted irony is
G
Your ashes come home to me

That, and the 'who the hell do you think you are' should be a C7
Thanks again.
