I want to be at this picnic! I'll bring some treats!

A sweet song, and I'm glad it was a good workout for you.

Very cool, I love the song. When our kids were little we had a Fisher Price wind up thing that played that and used to wind it up and put it in their crib when they went to sleep. I was cleaning up the basement over the holidays and found it, it's seized up and I was trying to fix it for my grandchildren but now I have to learn this on my Ukulele instead.
Nice job !

Would you share the chords for that ?

Oops, found 'em.

Mxyzptik thank you so much for your kind words, it is one of those magical tunes that if you close your eyes it transports you back, that is one of the many magical elements of great music, i certainly dream of being a child again,of course the wife will say i still am, good to see you found the chords, it is a great tune to get your fingers moving :)

Hi Daveey,
we're not familiar with this song (seems to be a childhood memory for a lot of you), but you mastered all these chord changes brilliantly. :) :)
