The second fill is pretty hard to hear because of the mix so I 
don't know if it's 100% correct but it works.
The fills are not the same the whole way through as Marr plays
some variations.

B: Verse "all the streets are crammed with things" etc

Listen to the song for the timing and try to keep the same 
bouncy feel Marr has. I use only downstrokes apart from 
the single notes which sounds pretty close.

C: End of chorus fill

(only one note; I would try to correct the last bit there but as you say, its hard to hear)
This ^ is a bit awkward now, so heres how I'd arrange it;

Putting a capo on the 4th fret could also make the whole thing easier

There's already tabs with a capo. I did it this way so you can still play the song even if you don't have one.
