The pattern changes a bit throughout the song, but here are the chords that they're built around.

C
The credits roll, the camera pans
Bdim7
And in the mist our hero stands
F                        G                  C
He starts to speak, then folds his hands in prayer
C
An awkward pause, then what's my line?
Bdim7
There's nothing left to say this time
F                           G                 C
And what would you say to a bad guy who's not there?
Am                                                    F
In terms of Roman numerals, He's IV league with Roman Polanski
Am                                                    F      G
He'd win an Oscar every time if he was only given the chance he

C
Started on the Broadway stage
Bdim7
A product of another age
F              G              C
An offer and a pilot drew him west
C
The series bombed, commercials came
Bdim7
And though nobody knew his name
F                       G            C
They all recognized the potential he possessed
Am
Deodorants and dental floss and how much does that new car cost
F
His acting was methodical in “You Don't Need A Medical”
Am                                                          F  G
He's branded like a racing car, he's like a movie star with movies
C
The week of Independence Day
Bdim7
The casting agent called to say
F                         G             C
Your smile could save our movie and the world

Am
Buy, buy, buy, buy
F
Sell, sell, sell
G
How well you learn to
Em
Not discern who’s
Am
Foe and who is
F
Friend, we'll own them
G          C
all in the end

C
It goes like this, we have no choice;
Bdim7
The minarets, the wailing voice
F                  G               C
And vaguely Celtic music fills the air
C
We choose a foreigner to hate
Bdim7
The new Iraq gets more irate
F                      G                      C
We really know nothing about them, and no one cares
Am                                                          F
Aladdin and the forty thieves enhanced by brand new special effects
Am                                                        F  G
Saddam and his cow disease spiced up with some gratuitous sex
C
A movie's made, a war is won
Bdim7
A low-speed chase, a smoking gun
F                      G               C
Distracts us while the actor takes the stand

Am
Buy, buy, buy, buy
F
Sell, sell, sell
G
How well you learn to
Em
Not discern who’s
Am
Foe and who is 
F
Friend, we'll own them
G          C
all in the end

I tried to edit this a bit, but I'm not really sure how that works, so I don't know if it's gonna work.....

Anyway,
the intro is twice as long as what's posted, and after the part I showed, the C chord is just arpeggiated 4 more times
before the lyrics start.

Also, I meant to list this as chords, but I guess I screwed that up and it was listed as a
tab. Sorry bout that.
