The chords in parenthesis are relative to a capo at the 4th fret.
I did this quickly on request; let me know if I've made any mistakes.

Note: the recording appears on the sharp side--A=444ish.
So, unless you tune accordingly, you’ll sound a little off-pitch.

[Intro]
B(G) G#m(Em) B(G) G#m(Em)

[Verse 1]
B(G)                                 G#m(Em)
   There is no way I’m looking for a boyfriend
E(C)           F#(D)                 B(G) 
   There is no way I’m looking for a scene
D#(B)        G#m(Em)
   I need to save some dough
F#(D)            B(G)
   I’m a working girl you know
E(C)                         F#(D)
   I’ll fend attention off I keep to myself

 [Verse 2]
B(G)                                  G#m(Em)
   I love my room I’m getting used to sleeping
E(C)             F#(D)              B(G) 
   Some nights I really like to lie awake
D#(B)         G#m(Em)
   I hear the midnight birds
F#(D)          B(G)
   The message in their words
E(C)                           F#(D)
   The dawn will touch me in a way a boy could never touch 
   that promise never meant so much to me

[Chorus]
B(G)                                     G#m(Em)
   You have been warned. I’m known to be contrary
B(G)                                         G#m(Em)
   Backward at school, I wrote from right to left
E(C)             F#(D)
   Teacher never cared for me
B(G)               G#(E)
   Preacher said a prayer for me
E(C)                                    F#(D)
   God help the girl. She needs all the help she can get

[Verse 3]
B(G)                                    G#m(Em)
   I see for hours just waiting for his phone call
E(C)            F#(D)                   B(G) 
   I’ll eat the chocolate hidden in the fridge
D#(B)            G#m(Em)
   I’ll play his messages
F#(D)          B(G)
   Analyze his intonation
E(C)                             F#(D)
   Please stop me there I’m even boring myself

[Verse 4]
B(G)                                 G#m(Em)
   I think of him when I’m doing the dishes
E(C)          F#(D)                    B(G) 
   I think of him while looking in the sink
D#(B)            G#m(Em)
   This ain’t no play on words
F#(D)          B(G)
   My love for him’s absurd
E(C)                        F#(D)
   If he gave me a sign I’d think about for a week 
   I’d build it up and then I’d tell him: no.

[Chorus]
B(G)                                     G#m(Em)
   You have been warned. I’m known to be contrary
B(G)                                         G#m(Em)
   Backward at school, I wrote from right to left
E(C)             F#(D)
   Teacher never cared for me
B(G)               G#(E)
   Preacher said a prayer for me
E(C)                                    F#(D)
   God help the girl. She needs all the help she can get

[Outro]
B(G) G#m(Em) B(G) G#m(Em)  repeat

Why not transpose up one? It makes it a simple C Am F G song. And since it's a typical cheery pop song, it makes sense for it to be simple and easy to play.
