There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
   / Jason Mraz     /  Besides from being about premature ejaculation, I think
  / Clockwatching  /  this song is about a not taking the time to simply enjoy
 / Mr. A-Z        /  each other and instead being too dependent on your own
/________________/  rushing around all the time. The point is just to relax.

In this song there are the figure/riff and a couple of chords.
The verses include both the riff and then the chords of the riff, just
casually picked. So I'll just write like 2x Riff, then pick the chords,
which I just notate in common bars. All the used chords can be seen
right below. The chords in the chorus are just regularly strummed.
It's really not complicated :)

   C   D11(no7)   Bmb6   G   D   Am7   Bbsus2     G/B   Bb6sus2

    (The last two chords are used live. The G/b is played instead
     of the Bmb6 and the Bb6sus2 instead of the Bbsus2. I just
     thought I'd spice things up with some alternatives here ;)

Take off both your shoes and clothes, I’ll follow
Undo corkscrew, drink from the half of a broken bottle
Lately we’re running out of time, aren’t we?

Smoking often and calling out our guilty pleasures
Let’s keep talking – anything to stop clockwatching
Lately we’re running out of time, aren’t we?
Crazy for running all the time, maybe
Let’s forget we’re running out of time

I’m off like an aeroplane
I’m licking your postage stamp again
I’m using my right brain and I’m praying the weight will crash
Who knew I’d come/cum so fast
Well, so what if a two pump chump can’t last
I finally made it to three, and I foreclose a five minute-fantasy.
I’ll surely fight making love on economy

No jumping conclusions
I don’t think there’s no solution
Let’s get backwards and forget our restless destination
Let’s live in this moment just this time, could we?
Just take one moment of our time, maybe
Let’s forget we’re running out of time

I’m off like an aeroplane
I’m catching my second wind again
I’m using my left brain and I’m righting all my wrongs
I’m yearning to turn you on
I’ve been working on getting you off, so get on board
Well, how can I guess by the subject of the best predicate that’s left unsaid
When the matter is too delicate, my loneliness is evident

And it’s you
You’re running through my mind and it makes me crazy
La, la, la
Ooh, so amazing
Lady dreamer, you might be the soundest sleeper
Tonight sleep tight and build your nest upon my shoulder

I love this version, thanks! I have one small suggestion - I think the D11no7 is played as a Dadd4: x5403x.
