Smile Can i have help knowing what key this song is in?

Sorry if I'm posting the the wrong thing in the wrong place, I'm a noob. Which is probably clear as day by now

Anyways.

The 1 Chord is Cminor, this lead me to automatically assume that the song iswritten in that key...

But I noticed that the 6 and the 7 chords are flats...
Ab and Bb to be precise. So the chords follow:

1. Cm
2. Some kind of D chord (D, F, Bb)
3. Eb
4. Fm
5. Gm
6. Ab
7. Bb

You can understand my confusion..
Normally the 6 and 7 wouldn't be flat..

Please help! Thanks in advance & sorry if Imessed up

Eb major? Especially if that is a D diminished.

I thought that diminished chords had a flat 3 and 5 (D,F,Ab)?

Actually I lied, it's the key of Cm. Same chords as Eb major. It also depends on the tonality. If the entire song is in a minor tonality it's Cm. If there is emphasis on the major aspect than it's Eb. But to be in key, the D should be diminished but maybe they substituted a D chord, I don't know. In fact, what the hell do I know, I'm no expert by any means.
