All chords with a ska offbeat, all the verses are the same and are basically two beats 
each chord

 D-Eb  Bb Eb Bb (x2)

Verse 1:
Eb         Bb             Eb                  Bb
I just realized I left my favorite hat at the club last night
      Eb          Bb
Which sickened me right off 'cause I
Eb                 Bb
Had that cap since real-real small
Eb            Bb
Then find out just right now
     Eb              Bb
That my main squeeze went through my phone
Eb    Bb
Eb             Bb
So I guess I'm single now
Imagine that


Verse 2:
So I sneak right on The T
The conductor sees me
He's kicking me right off with a frown
I grab my bag and I walk on
Comm. Ave., I hit up Blanchard's
They sell cheap wine, I got six bucks
Bag rip, wine smash
Drink it up avoid the glass

Eb                         Bb
But I can't stop from just smiling
When that damn sun is shining on

Hell, It's just
Shining down all over me
Eb                        Bb
No, I can't help but just smile
While that damn sun is shining on
Dang it's just shining down

Down over me

Verse 3:
So now I call up my friend
'Cause his girl must be bored, 'cause
She's been spreading rumors about me
That I robbed her party, but I never had
I pull out my little disc man
I bought from a crackhead down in Reno
But my Melt-Ba-na-na CD
Is all scratched up

Chorus 2:
I think it's stupid all the people who are moaning
Yeah moaning on
While the sun is shining down
On our city streets
Even all the things people say
Naw, ain't affecting me
Not when that damn sun
Is shining down over me

Bridge: (strum) Bb G

Shining down on me

Ab   Eb (x3)

            Born to just never care [x3]
About the stupid things
People moan everyday

Verse 4:
So later on I meet Johnny Trouble
At a bar called Shay's, a spit from Charlie's
We sit outside talking 'bout girls
How they're loons but we like them anyway
No money for pints at the bar
We bring a backpack full of Pabst
Under the table we fill our glass

Chorus 3:
So me and Johnny just sit outside
Warmed by that summer night
While those city stars are shining
Down on our streets
And I can't help from just smiling
While those damn stars are shining down
Yeah those stars are shining
Over our city streets

Chorus 4:
No, I won't be caught moaning
Not when light is still shining down
And me and Johnny
Warmed by that damn summer heat
And I can't stop from just smiling
When those damn stars are shining on
Yeah, those stars are shining
Over our city streets

Eb Bb (x 8)
Can you imagine that?

Sounds great to me, although the chord variations that UG provides aren't the one's the band normally plays. They're variations are alot easier and revolve more around the 6-8 frets on the B, G, and D strings.
Plus those variations give it a much more ska feel.

Incase anyone was wondering.

When UG gives it's chord diagrams, it usually gives them at the beginning of teh neck. Most ska bands (or any rock band for that matter) that play in a power chord shape.

for example:

playing D as


rather than:


and so on
