I posted this in the regional events threads, but thought I better post here so more people would see it. For info on the Ukulele World Congress the first weekend in June, visit here. (http://ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8660)

----------------------------------------------------------------

I've just written a song and everyone who is attending the Congress is welcome to be a part of it. It's a call for world peace, love and harmony, food on the table of the little elfin children and most especially the spread of ukulele love throughout the galaxy. We'll need EVERYBODY for the chorus and I'll be spending the weekend picking people to sing the solos and duets. So if you don't want to do the solos, look busy when you see me. Here are the lyrics:

WE ARE THE UKE

When you are down and you need a little lift

when your day is sucky and not so good

And your doggie bit you and the wife is mad at you

What can you do to alter that bad mood?

It's a tiny thing. And it only has 4 strings.

But pick it up and play with all your might

You will feel a mood change and tingly inside

Because the ukulele makes it all feel right!

Chorus
We play the uke. the Ukulele
We play to keep us sane
though some of us are crazy
Solo
It's a choice we're making
to brighten up our day
Duet
It's true you'll feel better with- ukulelayyyy!


We're all alone 'cause all our loved ones have flown

We're too busy on Youtube and UU

We're obsessive people - the uke is what we know

We can't wait for the next ukulele videooooo!

Chorus
We play the uke - the Ukulele
We play to keep us sane
though Deach is plain crazy

It's a choice we're making
to brighten up our day

It's true you'll feel better with- ukulelayyyy!

BRIDGE

When you're down and out and there seems no hope at all.

Just pick up that uke and all your cares will falllllll

well, well, well, well, it's only got 4 strings 12 frets and a small hole

Just strum that bitch and let your mind be blownnnn!

Chorus
We play the uke - the Ukulele
We eat hamburguesa
with mayonnais-ey

It's a choice we're making
to brighten up our day

It's true you'll feel better with- ukulelayyyy!

Chorus
We play the uke - the Ukulele
We play to keep us sane
yeah Deach is still crazy

It's a choice we're making
to brighten up our day

It's true you'll feel better with- ukulelayyyy!
