My heart does the tango, with every little move you make

I love you like a mango, `cause we can make it everyday

I want you to drop baby, drop baby, drop, drop all your love on me

Drop baby, drop baby, drop, drop `cause I'm hungry

My nights would be so lonely, if ever you should choose to go

I'd live just like a zombie, with very little love to show

I want you to drop baby, drop baby, drop, drop all your love on me

Drop baby, drop baby, drop, drop `cause I'm hungry

(Instrumental)

Who loves you pretty baby, who`s gonna help you through the night

Who loves you pretty mama, who`s always there to make it right

Who loves you, who loves you pretty baby,

Who`s gonna love you mama, baby drop

My heart does the tango, with every little move you make

I love you like a mango, `cause we can make it everyday

I want you to drop baby, drop baby, drop, drop all your love on me

Drop baby, drop baby, drop, drop `cause I'm hungry

Or like he's someone from National Public Radio.... "we have no emotion in our voices"

Does anyone have any original videos or sound files for this? Like from Eddy Grant or Mana'o Company?

This is the first song I've attempted to sing with..... I have a tendency to put larger spaces between the mid parts of each section, like "my heart does the tango" then a bigger gap then i'd like before "with every little move you make". I don't know if its me waiting for a beat or what, but it makes me have to play the last chord really weird, slower, or extend it with a few strums. But I'm getting better, I didn't know I could actually sing either.......

Thanks! That footage was actually shot in San Diego (after the seminars at Pacific Arts Dance Studio) when we were on tour earlier this year.

You can see it in "Day 4" of the Cali Tour Videos (the first video in the post): Cali Tour '08 Days 4-6! (http://ukuleleunderground.com/2008/10/11/tales-from-the-road-cali-tour-08-days-4-6/)

I found that I was playing alot faster than I was trying to sing to it... but I'm doing better now, I still get confused with the second part though, pretty mama, pretty baby, those ones. I just can't get them to flow correctly.

Im going to sing this song to my nene grel! hehe, thanks for the lesson. I always wanted to learn how to do the picking for this song. saw a few version online but they never sounded right. It's "the" song the started the uke for I. mango is good! pickled even better!

I really hope im not doing something bad by bumping this thread, but im curious about a few things:

How did you guys manage to make the transition from the picking to the strumming?

And what are the notes for the instrumental, i can actually catch the first part since its so similar to the intro, but other than that, im lost.

Hi, I also have a question --is there an easier chord alternative to the C#m and the Dm chords? I'm just starting out and I can't quite get these without smooshing all the strings or not getting the ones I'm supposed to. Thanks.

Take a look at this page:

http://www.sheep-entertainment.nl/ukulele/index.html
(Make sure you choose the correct tuning at the top right.)

Maybe there are other ways that are easier for you to play. But don't stop working on the difficult chords, they'll come in handy.

Aldrine--Thank you and the rest of the UU crew for making this tutorial! This song brings back some great memories for me.

Poi Dog--Thanks for the tabs and also for the info on the original artist. I knew that some of the lyrics from Drop were taken from the old song Who Loves You by the Four Seasons. But for all of these years, I had no idea that the entire song (Drop) was a remake of an Eddy Grant tune.

Thanks again!

hi!

wonderful tutorial/lesson for drop baby drop. its really fun to jam with other ppl on this song =D. my question is with regards to the picking pattern thats in the middle of the song. for example if you listen to the original recording, the picking pattern varies quite a bit from the one used in the beginning. the specific part i am referring to is right after the "i'd live like a zombie,with very little love to show" part. the picked notes , from what I hear, tend to jump in 3rds or 5ths. any idea how to pick those? thanks!

I was just listening to the actual song by Manao & Co. and seem like some picking parts are missing from your lesson. Can you show us how to do the whole picking part? Or maybe show us a picking chart to pick it just like the actual song? I think I might be able to figure it out but just to be sure it would be nice to have a pro show us how.

Much mahalo's for any help!

I've never heard this song before. I tried in earnest to learn it, but it's too advance for me. Maybe in a few months... I tried backing up 2 singers yesterday, it was tricky to have them depend on me for the lead in and rhythm!

How do you put the parts together? When does the picking part comein? Can you please leave a video of the complete song the way you've taught it? I love the combination but not sure when to use what! xovm
