For Intro play verse riff then play the chords A and E twice.

[Verse 1]
Am  Em         C           F G   A
    You're the prince to my ballerina,
Am  Em             C              G D
    You feed other people's parking meters,
C         D2     C           D2                
    You encourage the eating of ice cream,
Am  Em             C         F   G       A       
    You would somersault in sand with me,

[Verse 2] (Same chords as verse 1): 

You talk to loners, you ask how's your week,
You give love to all and give love to me,
You're obsessed with hiding the sticks and stones,
When I feel the unknown, You feel like home, you feel like home...


[Chorus]
A2           G2        F
  You put my feet back on the ground,
D           C      A2
  Did you know you brought me round,
A2               G2       F
  Yeah you were sweet and you were sound,
D*      C       G
  You saved me

* Here you can do D or D2, whichever you think sounds best.

Repeat verse riff with these lyrics: 

You're the warmth in my summers breeze,
You're the ivory to my ebony key,
You would share your last jelly bean and,
You would somersault in sand with me...

Repeat chorus riff.

[Instrumental] - verse riff.

Repeat chorus.

End with this:
A            G         F
  You put my feet back on the ground,
D        C         A
  Did you know you brought me round,
A               G         F
  Yeah you were sweet and you were sound,
D           C          G
  See I had shrunk yet still you wore me around,

A    G     D     C    G  (repeat until fading out end)
And 'round and 'round...

 
The verse chords have to be kept in a tight rhythm so the lyrics can flow around them.

Thanks a lot for this, its a really nice tune to play.

Just in case it helps anyone else though, I think the last line of each verse goes more like:

Am, Em, G, D, F, G, A

Am Em G D F G A
You would somersault in sand with me,

Cheeers. :)

Correction for my above comment... Hopefully it'll work this time.

Am  Em             G     D   F   G       A       
You would somersault in sand with me,
