View Full Version : Ukulele poem with room for additions

Raining here today. Good ukulele day. My poem might start with a bit of, let's say, a debatable truth, but it ends with a simple truth. Please feel free to add your own lines. No rules need apply.

Women will flock to you by the score
No need to fret anymore
You will lose weight in the middle
Spend less than on a fiddle
When it's time to go you won't need to look for a bow

UAS is a low-cost vice
You can use that excuse at least twice
They're small and light for an airplane flight
With low tension strings your fingers they won't bite
They're simple and bring nearer the day you can actually play

Compared to a mandolin you hardly need to pay
Great fun for a rainy day

Very nice!! I have used up all my ukulele rhyming skills on songs... I can't think of a darn thing at the moment.

The strings are all ready and tight,
and set at just the right height.
You can pick them all day, all day,
and chase those wet ol' blues away.
Get up! Not down and flow with the sound.

The rain on the roof keeps the beat,
one barely needs to tap his feet.
Taste some red wine or brown ale,
and the tune and the darkness will sail.
Rise up! Get down and flow with the sound.

Keep it close and play whatever you feel
the cool sounds of a uke just keeps it real
strife and troubles will ebb and flow
play a ukulele and watch them go

There's no need for sadness no need to pine
strum a sweet tune and you'll be fine
share that music, laugh and sing
Just take a deep breathe and let it sink in

There was an old uke with four strings
Though battered played remarkable things

The music came out
And left not a doubt

Music is sweet in spite of the dings
