These are the chords for Jolliest Fat Man by Laverne And Shirley on Piano, Ukulele, Guitar, and Keyboard
[Intro]
D  A  D   x2

[Verse]
       D             A     
It was Christmas Eve night 
      D         Am7
at the poorhouse,
    G          A            D    A
And all of the paupers were there
   D         A             D
I stepped in because it was snowing,
    Bm           A           D
And snow always screws up my hair
       Bm                 
By the pot-bellied stove, 
      F#m
sat a pot-bellied man,
   G               A     
He spoke with some lumps 
      D     F#7
in his throat
    Bm
His story was sad,
        F#m
And his diction was bad,
    G         A                   D
And here is a song that he wrote:

[Verse]
  D            A       D      Am7
I once was the jolliest fat-man
     G        A         D     A
With roses in all of my cheeks.
    D           A         D
I'd load up my sled every Christmas
    Bm      A             D
and go on a drunk for two weeks
   Bm                
My friends said they 
          F#m
saw me on rooftops
    G            
and sliding down 
A          D     F#7
chimneys at dawn
        Bm
With my reindeer in hand
        F#m
I would glide 'cross the land
    G          A         D
and wake up on somebody's lawn.

[Verse]
    D          A    
One morning my wife 
         D      Am7
left this message
      G         
“Each Christmas 
     A          D
I've spent by myself.
    D       
I'm sick of 
     A         D
your stupid traditions
        Bm         A     
so I've run off to Spain 
       D
with a elf.”
     Bm            
Just then, the old 
            F#m
man started dyin'
   G         
He screamed, 
         A            D   F#7
"May the Lord take my soul"
   Bm
We went through his wallet
   F#m
to see who he was
    G            A       
His address read simply, 
          D
"North Pole"

[Verse]
        D             A  
So, the next time you go 
              D        Am7
by the poorhouse,
G         A            D
If by the poorhouse you go,
     Bm
Just take off your hat,
     F#m
To a dead guy who's fat,
    G         A              D
And whisper a silent... "HO, HO".
