Uke Song

Ukulele music is like a sunny day
Ukulele music will chase the blues away when
it is gloomy and gray.

Some people only have one ukulele
Some people might have two ukuleles
Other people like to have a lot of ukuleles …

And this is what I have to say to you.
There’s nothing like a wall of ukuleles
To brighten up anybody’s room.

Some people like to decorate a room with flowers
But their beauty only lasts a matter of hours.
A ukulele’s beauty will never fade away
And as you’re walking by, you can take one down to play.

There’s nothing like a wall of ukuleles
To brighten up anybody’s room
To brighten up anybody’s room

—Barbara Johnson
