Below are the chord shapes I feel work the best,
please IGNORE ANY POP-UP CHORD BOXES the webpage might
automatically suggest.

F#m   = 244222   F#m11   = 044200 or 2x2200
A     = x07655   Aadd9   = 577600
E     = 022100   Emaj7 * = 066400
Emaj7 = 012200   Dmaj7   = xx0222

^ = Emphasise the beat

At the end of the choruses the sliding progression up
from Dmaj7 to Emaj7 has an D#maj7 in the middle, but it
is only created by the vocal harmonies and the guitar
chord isn't played. If you do want to add it, you could
use these barre chord voicings instead:
Dmaj7 = x57675  D#maj7 = x68786  Emaj7 = 079897

[Verse 1]
Emaj7
Muskrat, muskrat, candlelight,
Emaj7
Doing the town, and doing it right,
        F#m11                Emaj7
In the evening, it's pretty pleasing,
Emaj7
Muskrat Susie, Muskrat Sam,
Emaj7
 Do the jitterbug out in muskrat land,
         F#m11                   Emaj7
And they shimmy, and Sammy's so skinny!


[Chorus]
          Aadd9            Emaj7 *           F#m11
And they whirled, and they twirled, and they tangoed,
 Aadd9       Emaj7 *       F#m11
Singing and jingling their jango,
 Aadd9             Emaj7 *    F#m11
Floating like the heavens a - bove,
                 Dmaj7      Dmaj7         Emaj7
It looks like ...muskrat ...love---------------!
                   ^          ^

[Verse 2]
Emaj7
Nibbling on bacon, chewing on cheese,
Emaj7
Sammy says to Susie, 'Honey, hey,...
   Emaj7                     F#m11
...Would you please ...be my missus?'
                             Emaj7
And she says, yes, with her kisses,
             Emaj7
And now he's tickling her fancy, rubbing her toes,
             Emaj7
             Muzzle to muzzle, now anything goes,
(Rubbing her toes-----!)

        F#m11                      Emaj7
As they wriggle, and Sue starts to giggle!


[Chorus]
          Aadd9            Emaj7 *           F#m11
And they whirled, and they twirled, and they tangoed,
 Aadd9       Emaj7 *       F#m11
Singing and jingling their jango,
 Aadd9             Emaj7 *    F#m11
Floating like the heavens a - bove,
                 Dmaj7      Dmaj7         Emaj7
It looks like ...muskrat ...love---------------!
                   ^          ^
