1st Verse:
 D                  Em7
Poor old granddad, I laughed at all his words,
 D                             Em7
I thought he was a bitter man, he spoke of women's ways,
 D                                      Em7
They'll trap you, and they'll use you, and before you even know,
 D                                      Em7
For love is blind and your far to kind, don't ever let it show.

Chorus: 
 D                             Em7  G
I wish that I knew what I know now, when I was younger, 
 D                             Em7  G
I wish that I knew what I know now, when I was stronger.

2nd Verse:
 D                                Em7  
The Can Can's such a pretty show, they'll steal your heart away,
 D                                    Em7 
But backstage's back on earth again, the dressing rooms are great,
 D                                            Em7
They'll come on strong and it ain't to long, before they make you feel a man,
 D                                        Em7 
But love is blind and you soon will find, your just a boy again.

Chorus:
 D                             Em7  G  
I wish that I knew what I know now, when I was younger,
 D                             Em7  G
I wish that I knew what I know now, when I was stronger.

3rd Verse:
 D                                         Em7
When you want her lips, you get her cheek, makes you wonder where you are,
 D                                            Em7 
If you want some more, and she's fast asleep, leaves you twinklin' with the stars,
 D                   Em7 
Poor young grandson, there's nothing I can say,
 D                                 Em7
You'll have to learn just like me, and that's the hardest way.

Chorus:
 D                             Em7  G
I wish that I knew what I know now, when I was younger,
 D                             Em7  G
I wish that I knew what I know now, when I was stronger.

K, your melody is wrong. It should actually look like this(If you want to play it as it appears on "When We Are the New Boys"):

e|--5-5-5-5---5-7-5---------------3-3-3--------|
B|----------7-------7-5-3-5-5-5-5-------7-5-3--|
G|---------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------|

And the intro should be played more like this:

e|-----------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------|
G|--2-2-2----------------------------------------------|
D|--------5-5-5-4-4-4-2-0h2-4-5-5-5-4-4-4-2-2-2-0-----0|
A|------------------------------------------------0h2--|
E|-----------------------------------------------------|

Other than that, this is an excellent tab. Keep it up.
I'm a huge Rod Stewart fan xD

actually, to further edit my last post, I should say the intro would work better with the verse if played like this:

e|--5-5-5-------------------------------------------------|
B|---------8-8-8-7-7-7-5-3h5-7-8-8-8-7-7-7-5-5-5-3-----3--|
G|-------------------------------------------------2h4----|
D|--------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------|
