The D-Em-G parts are really syncopated so its hard to pace the change in the chords 
to the words. It may be off a little bit.

Intro: D  Em G

Verse 1:
D                       Em
Jenny's got a job, a cat named Jake
G                                       D  Em      G
Thirty-one candles on her birthday cake   next year
D                           Em
Thought by now she'd have a man

Two car-seats in a minivan

But all she's found is Mr. Wrong
D    Em          G
And that's the pits
D                           Em
She's drawn a line that she won't cross
G
Her and time are facing off
D                   Em        G
She says, something's gotta give

chorus: -----------------------------

Something's gotta give me butterflies

Bm
Something's gotta make me feel alright
G            Bm

Cell phone junky, a half hour late

She's had all that she can take

I don't know where it is
Em         A
Yeah, but something's gotta give
-------------------------------------
Bridge: (I have NO idea what the chords are here)

I swear, there's got to be a 'meant to be'

For me out there

Somewhere, someday
C                                     A   D
I'm gonna find someone, somehow, someway

Try playing this part like this:

Em A G
Yeah, but something's gotta give
-------------------------------------
Bridge: (I have NO idea what the chords are here)
D
I swear, there's got to be a 'meant to be'

For me out there
G
Somewhere, someday
C A D
I'm gonna find someone, somehow, someway

I think it sound pretty good and uses the same chords.

The chords got all smooshed together.

The G should be over "Give"
The D should be over "got to"
The other G should be over "where" of somewhere.
