Verse:
AA chord                         BmBm chord
When you grab a hold of me
     GG chord                       AA chord 
Tell me I will never be set free
                    BmBm chord
But I'm a parasite,
       GG chord                          AA chord
Creep and crawl I step into the night
               DD chord
Two pints of booze,
         GG chord                      AA chord 
Tell me are you a bad fish too? -are you a badfish too?-

DD chord                           AA chord
Ain't got no money to spend
DD chord                          AA chord
I know the night will never end
DD chord                   AA chord
Lord knows I'm weak
            DD chord                       EE chord
Won't somebody get me off of this reef?

Verse:
AA chord                           BmBm chord
Baby you're a big blue whale
     GG chord                               AA chord 
Grab the reef when all duck diving fails
      BmBm chord                  GG chord    
I swim, but I wish I never learned
DD chord               GG chord              AA chord
The water's too polluted with germs

             DD chord                           AA chord
I dive deep when it's ten feet over head
   DD chord                               AA chord
Grab the reef from underneath my bed. -underneath my bed but-

Lord knows I'm weak.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
