Now although this is my first tab : ), I am 99% sure that this is correct. 
I haven’t really written the timing but I know for sure the notes are right.

There it is, fun song to play, not hard. 
Try and feel the rhythm changes through the verses, 
they give the song a good build up on to the ‘Take it or Leave it” 
part.
Now the two notes on the 8th fret in the 
chorus aren’t actually there on the CD. 
But they sound right and follow the guitar accurately.

nice tab
Where you have put the 8's in the chorus, I would suggest playing
G[---------------------------------------------------------------]
D[-----------------------------1212121212121212-1010101010101010-]
A[-3 / 12-12-12-12-11-11-11-11-----------------------------------]
E[---------------------------------------------------------------]

(being 12 and 10 not 1,2 really fast)

sounds right to me
