Can anyone help with the chords to "The Skeleton in the Closet (Rattled His Bones)"?

I know there's an Anthrax song by that name, but I'm looking for an old jazz tune that was recorded by Louis Armstrong and also by Artie Shaw.

"The Skeleton in the Closet" was written by Arthur Johnston and Johnny Burke.

Haven't found chords as yet.

I can't help with chords, but here are the lyrics. I don't think they've been posted at Mudcat before. I transcribed them from a recording on Spotify:


THE SKELETON IN THE CLOSET
As sung by Louis Armstrong

SPOKEN: Boy, don't you go in there!--Come out o' there, boy!--Don't you know that house is ha'nted?

SUNG: There's an old deserted mansion on an old forgotten road
Where the better ghosts an' goblins always hang out.
One night they threw a party in a manner à la mode,
And they cordially invited all the gang out.
At a dark bewitchin' hour when the fun was loud and hearty,
A notorious wallflower became the life o' the party.

Mm, the spooks were havin' their midnight fling.
The merry-makin' was in full swing.
They shrieked themselves into a cheerful trance
When the skel'ton in the closet started to dance.

Now a goblin giggled with fiendish glee.
A shout rang out from a big banshee.
Amazement was in ev'ry ghostly glance
When the skel'ton in the closet started to dance.

All the witches were in stitches while his steps made rhythmic thumps,
And they nearly dropped their broomstick when he tried to do the bumps.
You never heard such unearthly laughter, such hilarious groans,
When the skeleton in the closet rattled his bones.
