Nicely done! I had a go at this myself the other day - didn't sound as good as your rendition though.
I could live without the 'booger' line myself. ;)

I had never heard that song before. As always very fun. The booger part, having raised three boys, young boys would love that part.

The Pink Martini classic "Hey, Eugene" needs a good ukulele cover version.
Just sayin'.

Doughnut, Roxie, Stan, Don, rijopogeo

thanks for the comments guys. It is such a cute and fun song to play, especially for kids, but the grown ups get it too I find.

The blokes especially like the line about "Get down on your knees and scrub me..." for some reason!!!!

cheers Don. We're very blessed to live where we do, with the space and privacy that goes with it. Peaceful and simple and doing our darndest to keep it that way.

Once I work out how to edit stuff for the clips I'd like to do a song with the music and have a montage of shots from around the place. But given my slow uptake on modern technology, that may be sometime away!!!

hey bluesuke

cheers mate. thanks a lot. used to sing lots of Lemonheads and Smudge tunes. Smudge are / were a great Aussie band and much under-rated I reckon. Evan Dando got lots of his songwriting ideas from Tom Morgan, and the Lemonheads themselves used to cover lots of their tunes. Here's one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFJvpz9VoCA here's another: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTCX6L23VcM&feature=related and another: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsrnvW7cv6g&feature=list_related&playnext=1&list=MLGxdCwVVULXflxDOKYiiK3hczFmu92ZsF :)
