Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
The D in the verse is just a fraction of a measure, for color. I play it in the rhythm Em/\/\/\D/ \
(or twice as many strums in the same tempo - Em/\/\/\/\/\/\D/\/ - if I'm feeling energetic)

The lyrics slur across the chord changes a lot. Hopefully I got close enough for you.

Em               D   Em           D

You have a heart and I have a key 
Em               D  Em           D
Lie back and let me unlock you 
Em                      D  Em                  D
Those heathens you hang with down by the sea 
Em                      D  Em                  D
All they want to do is defrock you 
Am
I know a river, where we can dream 
Am
It will swell up, burst its banks, 
Am        Em                      D

But if you're gonna dine with them cannibals
Bm                                        C       D
Sooner or later, darling, you're gonna get eaten
G
But I'm glad you've come around here 
D
with your animals
         Em                        C
And your heart that is bruised but unbeaten

And beating like a drum

Sing you songs with a   happy ending
Em                     D   Em                   D
Swoop down and tell you that it don't make much sense
Em                      D     Em           D
To attack the very thing you're defending
Am
Didn't I just buy that dress for you?
Am
That pink paper pinafore 
Am            Em                  D
that you keep mending

G
But I'm glad you've come around
     D
here with your animals
         Em                        C
And your heart that is banging and beating
    F              D
And banging like a gong

I can see that they've hurt you, dear
Em               D     Em           D
Here is some moonlight to cloak us
Em               D   Em           D
And I will never     desert you here
Em            D   Em           D
Unpetaled among the crocus
Am
Allow me, my love, to allay your fear
Am
As I swim, 
Am            Em               D   
in and out of focus

But if you're gonna dine with the cannibals
Bm                                        C       D
Sooner or later, darling, you're gonna get eaten
G
But I'm glad you've come around
     D
here with your animals
         Em                        C
And your heart that is bruised but bleating
    F              D
And bleeding like a lamb
Em               D   Em           D
Em               D   
    F              D
Banging like a gong
Em               D   Em           D
Em               D   
    F              D
Beating like a drum
Em               D   Em           D
Em               D   Em           D
