Or if it's easy for you, or it's hard to bar F and Bb so much (like it is for me, LOL 
KTHNX OMG G2G BRB), you can capo the first fret and play these chords instead of the above 
RELATIVE TO THE CAPO:

(replaces....Bbm7.....C7.....Fm........F7)
e|------------0--------x------0--------0---------------------------|
B|------------1--------0------0--------0---------------------------|
G|------------0--------2------0--------1---------------------------|
D|------------2--------1------2--------0---------------------------|
A|------------0--------2------2--------2---------------------------|
E|------------x--------x------0--------0---------------------------|
.............Am7......B7......Em.......E7


For the rest, i've used the relative to the capo chords. If you want to play sax or 
over it and want the chord charts, just look above and translate it appropriately (or 
if you want to get naughty about it)


VERSE 1
............Am7...........B7
It's dreamy weather we're on

.................Em..........E7
You waved your crooked wand

..........Am7.....................B7
Along an icy pond with a frozen moon

................Em......Am7
A murder of silhouette crows I saw

.....................B7
And the tears on my face

.......................Am7....B7
And the skates on the pond

............Em
They spell Alice

VERESE 2 (Same as Verse 1)
I disappear in your name
But you must wait for me
Somewhere across the sea
There's a wreck of a ship
Your hair is like meadow grass on the tide
And the raindrops on my window
And the ice in my drink
Baby all I can think of is Alice

VERSE 3

......Am7..........B7........Em
Arithmetic arithmetock

....................E7............Am7
Turn the hands back on the clock

.....................B7
How does the ocean rock the boat?

Em.................E7................Am7
How did the razor find my throat?

........................B7............
The only strings that hold me here

......Am7...................B7
Are tangled up around the pier

VERSE 4 (same as verse 1+2)
And so a secret kiss
Brings madness with the bliss
And I will think of this
When I'm dead in my grave
Set me adrift and I'm lost over there
And I must be insane
To go skating on your name
And by tracing it twice
I fell through the ice

I'm thinking the Fm - F7 is actually more a Em - E7
