Nice work, GUEST Michael, I would perhaps alter your chords at one or two points, particularly in the bridge...


(Dm)Jazz and Cha-Cha-Cha,
(G7)Calypso and street vendor cries.
(C)Strains of (G#)old re(G)frains,
(G)Sleepy time (Em)baby (Am)lulla(D)bies

And, in the verse, the last line would be ...

(G)Happi(Em)ness, no (Am)more, no (D)less

The instrumentation and arrangement on the original song was exceedingly sparse, and I wouldn't say that these chords are definitive, there is scope for much elaboration and "jazzing up" of the accompaniment, but imo these are pretty much the chords on the record, which you can listen to Here
