INTRO
C C7 Fsus2 G7sus4 G7 x2VERSE 1
C C7Sid Vicious played a four-string Fender bass guitar and couldnÂ’t sing
Fsus2 G7sus4 G7And everybody hated him except the ones who loved him
C C7A ukulele has four strings, but Sid did not play ukulele
Fsus2 G7sus4 G7He did smack and probably killed his girlfriend Nancy Spungen
VERSE 2
C C7If only Sid had had a ukulele, maybe he could have been happy
Fsus2 G7sus4 G7Maybe he would not have suffered such a sad end
C C7He maybe would have not done all that heroin instead
Fsus2 G7sus4 G7He maybe wouldÂ’ve sat around just singing nice songs to his girlfriend
CHORUS
C C7So play your favorite cover song, especially if the words are wrong
Fsus2 G7sus4 G7Cos even if your grades are bad, it doesnÂ’t mean youÂ’re failing
C C7Do your homework with a fork and eat your fruit loops in the dark
Fsus2 G7sus4 G7And bring your etch-a-sketch to work and play your ukulele
BRIDGE
Fsus2 G7Ukulele small and forceful, ukulele, brave and peaceful
C Fsus2You can play the ukulele too it is painfully simple
Fsus2 G7Play your ukulele badly, play your ukulele loudly
Bb6Ukulele banish evil, ukulele save the people,
Ukulele gleaming golden on the top of every steeple VERSE 3
C C7Lizzie borden took an axe, and gave her mother forty whacks
Fsus2 G7sus4 G7Then gave her father forty-one, and left a tragic puzzle
C C7If only they had given her an instrument, those puritans
Fsus2 G7sus4 G7Had lost the plot completely, see what happens when you muzzle
VERSE 4
C C7A personÂ’s creativity and do not let them sing and scream
Fsus2 G7sus4 G7And nowadays it’s worse ‘cause kids have automatic handguns
C C7It takes about an hour to teach someone to play the ukulele
Fsus2 G7sus4 G7About same to teach someone to build a standard pipe bomb you do the math(s)
CHORUS BRIDGE
Fsus2 G7Ukulele, thing of wonder, ukulele, wand of thunder
C Fsus2You can play the ukulele too in London and down under
Fsus2 G7Play Joan Jett, and play Jacques Brel and Eminem and Neutral Milk Ho-
Bb6Tell the children crush the hatred, play your ukulele naked
If anybody tries to steal your ukulele, let them take it VERSE 5
C C7Imagine thereÂ’s no music, imagine there are no songs
Fsus2 G7sus4 G7Imagine that John Lennon wasnÂ’t shot in front of his apartment
C C7 Fsus2Now imagine if John Lennon had composed “Imagine” for the ukulele
G7sus4 G7Maybe people would have truly got the message
VERSE 6
C C7You may think my approach is simple-minded and naĂŻve
Fsus2 G7sus4 G7Like if you want to change the world then why not quit and feed the hungry
C C7But people for millennia have needed music to survive
Fsus2 G7sus4 G7And thatÂ’s why IÂ’ve promised John that I will not feel guilty
VERSE 7
C C7So play your favorite Beatles song and make the subway fall in love
Fsus2 G7sus4 G7TheyÂ’re only $19.95, that isnÂ’t lots of money
C C7Play until the sun comes up and play until your fingers suffer
Fsus2 G7sus4 G7Play LCD Soundsystem songs on your ukulele
VERSE 8
C C7Quit the bitching on your blog and stop pretending art is hard
Fsus2 G7sus4 G7Just limit yourself to three chords and do not practice daily
C C7YouÂ’ll minimize some strangerÂ’s sadness with a piece of wood and plastic
Fsus2 G7sus4 G7Holy fuck itÂ’s so fantastic, playing ukulele
VERSE 9
C C7Eat your homework with a fork and do your fruit loops in the dark
Fsus2And bring your etch-a-sketch to work, your flask of jack, your vibrator
your fear of heights, your nikon lens VERSE 10
C C7Your mom and dad, your disco stick, your soundtrack from “Karate Kid”
Fsus2 G7sus4 G7Your ginsu knives, your rosary, your new Rebecca Black CD
C C7Your favorite room, your bowie knife, your stuffed giraffe, your new glass eye
Fsus2 G7sus4 G7Your sousaphone, your breakfast tea, your Nick Drake tapes, your giving tree
C C7Your ice cream truck, your missing wife, your will to live, your urge to cry
Fsus2 CRemember weÂ’re all going to die so play your ukulele
