I do it different to that, Sue:-

JEAN HARLOW DIED THE OTHER DAY

1. Jean Harlow died the other day.
These are the very last words I heard her say. (x2)
Jing a lang a jing a lang a ba da de'n de. (x2)
Mamma gonna walk, mamma talk, yea,
Mamma gonna walk, mamma talk, yea,
Mamma gonna walk, mamma talk a New York.

2. When the doctor came, her ma was running wild,
Saying, "Doctor, Doctor can't you save my child?" (x2)
Jing a lang... etc.
Well, the very last words she spoke before she died,
There's one more movie star I gotta ride. (x2)
Jing a lang... etc.

I use the same chord sequence all the way through. C, Am, F, G. (Same as "If I had a hammer!)
I presume you know that she was a Christian Scientist, and died of peritonitis because her mother wouldn't call a doctor till it was too late.
Cheers, Bron.
