I saw this song was wanted on this page, so I sat down attempting to figure out the 
chords. I know it's not 100% correct, but it's a beginning. Hope you guys want to give me feedback! :-)

Capo 1th fret

[Intro]
G  A  Bm  D x2
G A Bm D Em A
Bm

[Verse 1]
G                A           Bm              D
Can’t swim so I took a boat, to an island so remote
G           A              Bm          D
Only Johnny Depp has ever been to it before
G                       A                Bm                   D
I stayed there till the air was clear I was bored and out of tears
Em                             A
Then I saw you washed up on the shore

G          A             Bm           D
I offered you my coat, thank god this luck can flow
G               A                Bm            D
Crazy how that shipwreck met my ship was coming in
G                 A               Bm           D
We talked till the sun went down, love on the fugit sound
Em                      F#m
My treasure map was on your skin

[Chorus]
Bm            D      A           G
Beauty in the water, angel on the beach
Bm       D       A          F#m
Ocean’s daughter, I thought love was out of reach
Bm     D                A                  Em
Till I got her, had I known it could come through
                      A                    G    A   Bm
I would have wished in ’92, for a mermaid just like you

Whoa, just like you, whoa

[Verse 2]
Sharks green with envy they wonder what you see in me
Funny but sometimes can’t help but wonder that as well
Now life is a holiday, making up for the years I paved
The way to this heavenly bay it went through Hell

[Chorus]
Bm            D      A           G
Beauty in the water, angel on the beach
Bm       D       A          F#m
Ocean’s daughter, I thought love was out of reach
Bm     D                A                  Em
Till I got her, had I known it could come through
                      A                    G    A   Bm
I would have wished in ’92, for a mermaid just like you

Whoa, just like you, whoa

[Bridge]
Rescued you by the banyan tree, all the girl fish in the sea
could not care to 
they don’t have a handle on you, they don’t have a scandal on you
I don't like those sandals on you
savin' me was B.I.G., all the boyfish in the sea
They all wish that they could be me

Can’t swim so I took a boat, to an island so remote
Only Johnny Depp has ever been to it before
