Ok wojee, I couldn't find it on the interwebz, so I took a shot at it.

Funk songs are sometimes hard to pick out chords for because the guitarist often uses a lot of muting so it's hard to hear what he/she's doing, but having said that, here's my take on it.

The verses are entirely variations of E chords.  No changes except for some work on a couple of the strings while continuing to play E.  You can get the riff a couple of ways:
String: Fret
>  D:2-2-0-2-4-2
>  e:0-0  B:3  e:0-2-0

Keep playing that until you get to the bridge at 1:04.  At that point alternate between C#m and A three times and then on "(girl I) WANT", play a C on "want".

Then go back to funkin' out with the E.

Between 1:45 and 2:33, I got nothin.  After that, they finish on the funky E stuff.

Good luck, and welcome to the forum.

You're welcome.  I use these as an opportunity to do ear training.  Sometimes it works, sometimes not.
