For the sake of keeping things simple with the lyrics, I'll name these chords
slightly incorrectly...

    G   G   C9  C9  G   Em  Dsus Dsus C9  Dsus C9  Asus  Em  C9  Dsus
 __________part one______________/  ____________part two___________/

Also, hit the bass note BEFORE strumming each (and every) chord.
It gives it that folky feel.

If I was in the fridge,  would you open the door?

If I was the carpet would ya wipe your feet,
G          Em           Dsus         Dsus
In time to save me from mud off the street?
       C9              Dsus                   C9               Asus
If you like me, if you love me, why don't you get down on your knees
and scrub me?
             Asus     Asus   C9
I'm a little grubby
    Dsus     G
