OK, so this one isn't on ukulele, but this is the general music section...

Since I entered the coffee coffee contest here I've been trying my hand at writing some more comedic pieces, since my coffee one got a couple good laughs.

Any suggestions or comments appreciated, or just general discussion about comedic songwriting :)

Thanks! I was a little worried about the rap section, to tell the truth, but it's good to hear you liked it.
And the main riff really isn't as hard as it seems. It's just a Dmaj, Emin7, F#min7, then Emin7 again.

The chords look like this:

Dmaj
______________
|__|__|__|__|__|
|__1__|__|__|__| VII position
|__|__|__|__|__|
|__|__4__4__4_|


Emin7
_____________
|__|__|__|__|__|
|__|__1__|__|__| VII position
|__|__|__|__|__|
|__2__|__3 _|__|
|__|__|__|__4__|

the F#min7 is the same as the Emin7 except two frets higher. The whole vamp is those three chords, played broken in fingerstyle picking
