THE OLD APARTMENT - Barenaked Ladies

It's a damn shame that no one has submitted the tab for this sweet-ass song!  
So here it is, people!

CHORDS USED:  

Bb[688766]     
F [x8/10/10/10x]     
Eb[x6888x]     
Gm[355333]

Alternate method! -Capo 3rd fret, replace Bb with G, F with D, and Eb with C, and Gm with Em.

VERSE:

Bb        F           Eb                     
  Broke into the old apartment
Bb         F                   Eb          
  This is where we used to live

CHORUS:

Gm            F         Eb         
  Why did you paint the walls
Gm            F         Eb  
  Why did you clean the floor
Gm            F       Eb                      
  Why did you plaster over 
         Eb               Bb
The hole I punched in the door

SOME OTHER PART THAT ISN'T A BRIDGE BUT NOT NECESSARILY THE VERSE OR CHORUS:

Bb    F                Eb         
  Why did you keep the mousetrap
    F                Bb
Why did you keep the dish rack
             F                       
These things used to be mine
  Eb                               F (strum once, mute fast)
I guess they still are, I want 'em back 


BRIDGE:

Gm                F            Eb   Bb          
  I know we don't live here anymore

***I am just taking a wild guess with the bridge.  It is played a lot like the chorus, 
but I do think there is a Bb stuck in there somewhere, listen for it and tell me if I'm
right.  

-Mike

Technically, this is correct. Those are the chords used in this song. But there´s a capo 3rd fret, so, relative to the capo, the chords are G D Cadd9, not C9 as colavs128 insists. They´re two wholly different chords.
