Yard work sucks. I would much rather dj.

Sounds like a personal problem :). Especially since it's one of the "good old good ones" as Louis Armstrong would say. There's a cab calloway soundie that plays up the skeleton motif. So it might also work for a halloween or death theme.

A few others include,
Long John (is my dentist)
Running a Temperature
Nuts a Screwy Music
Bag-a-Bones
Beaver Junction [?]
Are You All Reet
Jangled Nerves
Melancolia
Shivers
Doctor's Blues
Rhythm Doctor Man
You May Get Better But You'll Never Get Well
Pick-a-Rib
He Ain't Got Rhythm

Interesting read on St. James Infirmary:

Incidentally, the only song I can think of that fits the topic is "Upper Manhattan Medical Group."

Oh, there is another version of "Love Portion" by Dan Barrett. It's slower but not a chacha.

I was also thinking Swingmatism by Jay McShann, b/c of the use of 'matism'.
