Basically, the whole song goes C G Dm7, except for intro, where it is C F. If you want to get a bit fancier,
add a lick before switching G to Dm7. It is called A* here. Anyway, listen to the song and you will get it.

So these are the chords:

C: x32010
F: 133211
G: 320033
Dm7: xx0211 (or x57565)
A*: xxxx55



[Verse 1]

C       G         (A*) Dm7
   She lives in this house over there
C           G        (A*) Dm7
   Has her world outside it.
C    G            (A*) Dm7
   Grapples with the earth with her fingers
C              G (A*) Dm7
   And her mouth, she's five years old.
C          G       (A*) Dm7
   Thread worms on a string
C          G      (A*) Dm7
   Keeps spiders in her pocket
C             G         (A*) Dm7
   Collects fly-wings in a jar
C          G          (A*) Dm7
   Scrubs horse flies and pinches them on a line.


C   G    (A*) Dm7
   Ah ah a-ah     x4

[Verse 2]

C       G            (A*) Dm7
   She's got one friend, he lives next door
C       G            (A*) Dm7
   They listen to the weather
C       G            (A*) Dm7
   He knows how many freckles she's got
C         G           (A*) Dm7
   She scratches his beard.
C         G           (A*) Dm7
   She's painting huge books
C     G         (A*) Dm7
   Glues them together
C        G       (A*) Dm7
   They saw a big raven
C                     G       (A*) Dm7
   It glided down the sky, she touched it.


C   G    (A*) Dm7
   Ah ah a-ah     x4

[Verse 3]

C     G            (A*) Dm7
   Today's a birthday
C            G        (A*) Dm7
   They're smoking cigars
C     G            (A*) Dm7
   He got a chain of flowers,
C    G            (A*) Dm7
   Sows a bird in her knickers
