Basically the whole song is based around a two bar phrase of 6/8 and 8/8. The hihat is playing all the even notes (2, 4, 6, 2 ,4, 6, 8 etc...) so it has this 4/4 feel to it. There is the odd phrase now and then that has two bars of 6 in it, pretty easy to feel though.
1 2 3 4 5 6 | 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
h - x - x - x | - x - o - x - x
s - - - o - - | - - - - - o - -
b o - o - - - | o - o o - - - -
That's the basic rhythm, there's some variations every now and again but it's all pretty easy to figure out.
