There is a possibility there is another way and a better way, but here 
is what I do. Download Hexedit.


Make a backup copy of the MP3 and then drag the MP3 onto the Hexedit 
Application, and when it opens scroll to the bottom. Now you will have 
to play around with this, but highlight a portion of the bottom 
characters and then hit the Delete key. Save the file and play the MP3. 
See how much of the last two second are still there. Keep doing this 
until you are satisfied with the results. If you go too far and delete 
more than you want, just trash the MP3 and make another copy from the 
original. Eventually with a little playing around you will have the 
file the way you want it. An MP3 file has quite a bit of info in it, so 
you may have delete more than you think to remove the last two seconds 
of the file.

My dad listened to Artie Shaw when he was around, so enjoy the song as 
he certainly did.
