[Verse 1]
d                              G
Mel Bay, in your manual, you taught us how to hold a pick
    d                                  a
You got to hold it in this manner, to play them fancy licks
d                                          G
Now we're happily strummin along, and you ought to hear us play
d                                  A7                d
And I guess we owe it all to you, thanks a lot, Mel Bay


[Chorus]
d                  G             
Mel Bay, Mel Bay, we just wanna say
d                                     a                   d
We wouldn't know what we're doin, if you hadn't shown the way
d                   G
Mel Bay, Mel Bay, everytime we play, 
d                                 A7                   d
we're always thinking of you, and hope you have a nice day

On page 21, you showed us how to play a G
d                          A7
On page 22, you showed us how to play a D
d                          G
But Lawdy, oh lawdy, we never learned to play an E, 
       d                         A7        d
cause someone in the outhouse, stole page 23


[Verse 3]
d                              G
I'm goin down to Goodins, to buy me a ukelele
d                              A7          
I wanna learn to play Gershin, on the uke-le-le
d                                    G                
I just bought your book, Mel Bay, on how to play the fiddle
d                                           A7          d
I can play, on that high string, and those two in the middle

You know we're gettin better, than we ever thought we could
e                                      B7            e
