Here are the lyrics to a fun song.
Can anyone help with the chords ?

Shorty's Got To Go
Bill Johnson and His Musical Notes 1947
Also recorded by Lucky Millinder AHO, and the Cat's and the Fiddle in 1946
( ) = all or response

(Get out)
(Get out)
(Get out of my house)
(Get out of my house)
(Get out of my house you mouse)

I was way away from home (dwooo do doo)
And I didn't know what to do. (doo do doo)
So I grabbed the telephone (weooo)
Because I felt so blue.

It rang and rang and rang
It rang until it was dizzy (really really)
And then a deep bass voice
(Hello), stop ringing 'cause I'm busy

I sez "Who is You"
He sez "Who is you"
I said "This is Mr. Beau" (ah never heard of him)

He sez "Who is You"
I sez "Who is you"
He said ("This is Shorty Jones")

(Get out of my house)
(Get out of my house)
Get out of my house you mouse (you louse)
Let the door hit you
Where the dog bit you
(Get Out)

Has anybody here seen Shorty (Nahhh)
Has anybody here seen Shorty (Oh no)
He stole my gal, and that ain't no pal.
Yeah, ( Shorty's Got To Go.)

Has anybody here seen Shorty (Nahhh)
Does anybody here know Shorty
Well tell that guy that he's got to die
Yeah, (Shorty's Got To Go)

Now he stole my suit and shoes to boot
(Shorty's got to go)
He took my hat that low down rat
(Shorty's got to go)
He's wearing my ten dollar tie
(Dollar ninety eight)
Well he stole my last pair of long underwear
(Shorty's got to go)

(Get out of my house)
(Get out of my house)
Get out of my house you mouse (you louse)
Let the door hit you
Where the dog bit you
(Get Out)

Has anybody here seen Shorty (Nahhh)
Has anybody here seen Shorty (Oh no)
Has anybody there seen Shorty anywhere
'cause (Shorty's Got To Go).
(Shorty's Got To Go).
(Shorty's Got To Go).
(Shorty)
(Yeah Shorty)
(Has got to go.)

Lucky Milender wrote the song. The Cats and The Fiddle include an extra verse.

hi there, the chords are quite easy, it's Fmin7 and the bass goes down from F to C. Here's the whole thing:

||: Fmin7         | Fmin7/Eb       | Dbmaj7 | C7 :||
    Fmin7         | Fmin7/Eb       | D°7       | Dbmaj7
    C7   C7/Bb | C7/Ab   C7/G | Fmin7    | C7

in the arrangement by millender (the one i know) are different chords between the parts but i never worked them out. right now i'm translating it to german for a chanson night, maybe i have to find out the additional chords, in this case i'm going to share it with you, of course! Hope I helped, richard
