Dream Life Of Rand McNally by Jason Mraz

This is my 1st tab so comments and changes welcome. I love this song with funny lyrics.
big enough so I tabbed a simpler version...
I think it sounds fine but I'm not quite sure about the chorus so feel free to play 
with it....

Who is he, Mr. Rand Mcnally?
I had I dream that mystery was me now who else could I be?
I dreamed I went to England and met the spice girls there for tea
They lost one more they're down from four to my favorite number three
But they're still quite spicy, as the orange flavor
And oh so nice to do me the favor and lick my icing under the table now

But I gotta leave town Mr. Nally, just as scary spice was about to go down on me
And don't ask how Mr. Nally and give up the towel Mr. Nally and run

I dreamed I went to Singapore got bored and robbed a liquor store
What for? Nobody knows I only took a couple of Marlboros
Oh but that was all they needed and the criminal was soon defeated
And now in jail I'm waiting for my punishment of caining

So I gotta think fast Mr Nally watch your ass, wake up and laugh and run
Better Mr Mun, Mr Rand, Mr Mac, Mr Nally
Mr Run, Mr Man, you got the knack for the rally and run

I had a chance to visit the north pole but it was way too cold to smoke
Oh my nose was freezing I should could use some coughing and wheezing
So I tried it anyway and the place went up in flames
How was I suppose to know you could catch fire to the snow

Oh lord way to go Mr Nally, way to go, now you're melting the poles Mr Nally so run

I jumped ship in NYC and headed south to Washington DC
Didn't think I'd go there but played some shows there fancy lucky me
But it is really slow there with our new president on TV
Too many politicians and liberal Christians they're all set out for me

Singing cast your vote Mr Nally, castrate your vote, oh say no you don't, Mr Nally just run

I thumbed a ride across the prairie, I got hitched in Vegas, yep, I got married
To a lady who loved me she thought it's be funny to gamble all my money
And I got stranded without my clothes, a little bit of fear and loathing heart attack
I got chased by the rat pack once in a flashback.

Singing Viva Las Vegas
Sing it with me c'mon now
Singin Viva Las Vegas

SCAT - [CHORUS chords]

JavaJoes/Live&Acoustic versions have 1st verse of 'The Remedy (I Won't Worry)' here 
are F# Bb E [Repeat] -
REMEMBER THE TUNE IS DIFFERENT TO THE ORIGINAL so listen to get how Mraz adjusts it to 
if you want to include it

I settled down in San Diego and smoked a joint with Java Joe
And with a grin he took me in spilling coffee on his chin
And I played my shows there and I met my b**ches and hoes there
And with my holy-ho they kindly let me shake my tail theree
There's one more thing before I go there's never been any place like this home
For once in a lifetime maybe I'd be foolish not to stay

Oh I got to get away Mr. Nally say what can I say Mr. Nally..
run away Mr. Nally

I say-say-ah
Ce Ce Ce laaa la la la vie (scatting)
Ce Ce Ce la lalalala vie (scatting)
Oh Ce la vie.
