"Weird Al" Yankovic
This is the Life 
Released: 1984
Standard tuning, no capo

C                        C7
I eat filet mignon seven times a day
F                        Fm
My bathtub's filled with Perrier
G7         F
What can I say
C                G
This is the life

C                           C7
I buy a dozen cars when I'm in the mood
F                  Fm
I hire somebody to chew my food
G7                     F
I'm an upwardly mobile dude
C           G
This is the life

They say that          
Money corrupts you
F                  C
But I can't really tell
I got the whole world at my feet
And I think it's pretty swell

C                           C7
I got women lined up outside my door
F                                    Fm
They've been waitin' there since the week before
G7                F
Who could ask for more
C                G
This is the life

You're dead for a real long time
F                  C
You just can't prevent it
So if money can't buy happiness
I guess I'll have to rent it

C                           C7
Yeah, every day I make the front page news
F          Fm
No time to pay my dues 
G7                       F
I got a million pairs of shoes
C                G
This is the life

I got a solid gold Cadillac
F                        C
I make a fortune while I sleep
You can tell I'm a living legend and
Not some ordinary creep

C                             C7
No way, I'm the boss, the Big Cheese
F                            Fm
Yeah, I got this town on its knobby little knees
G7                   F
I can do just what I please
C               G
This is the life

G                     C     C7
That's right, I'm the king, number one
F                         Fm
I buy monogrammed Kleenex by the ton
C                  C7
I pay the bills, I call the shots
F                     Fm
I grease the palms, I buy the yachts
One thing I can guarantee
F                             Fm
The best things in life, they sure ain't free
G                             F
It's such a thrill just to be me
This is the life
F   G             C
Wa-a, this is the life

"This Is The Life" is a rag - you are missing the Ragtime progressions in this song.

Also, at the start of the second verse ("You're dead for a real long time") the song changes to the key of D.
