So basically all the song goes through three chords: F, Am & Dm. I play them this way: 

*This one is the same as Dm, but sounds better in certain parts.
      F             Am              Dm             Dm*
e|----1-------------5---------------10--------------5------------|
B|----1-------------5---------------10--------------6------------|
G|----2-------------5---------------10--------------7------------|
D|----3-------------7---------------12--------------7------------|
A|----3-------------7---------------12--------------5------------|
E|----1-------------5---------------10--------------5------------|

The first part of the song goes around playing the three first chords only with 
the 1st, 3rd and 6th string.
So it goes like this:

Riff 1:

        She may contain the urge to run away
e|----1----------------------5-----------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----2----------------------5-----------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----1----------------------5-----------------------------------------|

    But hold her down with soggy clothes and breezeblocks
e|---------------10--------------------------10------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------10--------------------------10------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------10--------------------------10-----------(10-10-10-10)|

    Cetirizine, your fever's gripped me again
e|----1----------------------5-----------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----2----------------------5-----------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----1----------------------5-----------------------------------------|

           Never kisses, all you ever send are fullstops. (Na-Na-Na-Na)
e|---------------10--------------------------10------------------------|

E|---------------10--------------------------10------------10-10-10-10-|
 
(keep doing this)
Do you know where the wild things go
They go along to take your honey
Break down, now weep, build up, breakfast
Now let's eat, my love, my love love love
 
Chorus: (using the chords I say up there)
 F                      Am
Muscle to muscle and toe to toe
 Dm*                    F   
The fear has gripped me, but here I go
    F               Am
My heart sinks as I jump up
 Dm*                    F 
Your hand grips hand as my eyes shut
  F   Am  Dm*    F   F   Am  Dm*   F     F
& ah, ah, ah, a-huh. Ah, ah, ah, a-huh (huh).
 
Riff 2:
 
 Just do it with the chords I say up there.
 F           Am                          
Do you know where the wild things go
 Dm          Dm
They go along to take your honey
 F           Am             
Break down, now sleep, build up, breakfast
 Dm          Dm
Now let's eat, my love, my love love love
 F                          Am             
She bruises, coughs, she splutters
                               Dm                 Dm
Pistol shots hold her down with soggy clothes and breezeblocks
 F                   Am                   Dm         Dm
She’s morphine, queen of my vaccine, my love, my love love love

Chorus: (using the chords I say up there)
 F                      Am
Muscle to muscle and toe to toe
 Dm*                    F   
The fear has gripped me, but here I go
    F               Am
My heart sinks as I jump up
 Dm*                    F 
Your hand grips hand as my eyes shut
  F   Am  Dm*    F   F   Am  Dm*   F     F
& ah, ah, ah, a-huh. Ah, ah, ah, a-huh (huh).
  F   Am  Dm*    F   F   Am  Dm*   F     F
& ah, ah, ah, a-huh. Ah, ah, ah, a-huh (huh).
 
Bridge: Do the same as Riff 1
  F                  Am
She may contain the urge to runaway
               Dm                        Dm
But hold her down with soggy clothes and breezeblocks
  F        Am                             Dm             
Germoline disinfect the scene, my love, my love love love
     Dm*             F
But please don't go, I love you so... My lovely

Outro: Do this during all the outro.

  F   Am  Dm
& ah, ah, ah...
