    Default Precious Things (Bic Runga)

    Hope you like my rendition of this wonderful song by New Zealand singer-songwriter Bic Runga. This video features my Ala Moana Koi ukulele, built for me by Aaron Oya.



    A little allusion to a Beatles song at the end, too!

    Had a request for the chords. Here they are:

    [ intro: Bm A (repeat) ]

    And all the [Bm] stargazers [A] bloom
    Throw the [Bm] stars around the [A] room
    I was [Em] waiting for the [A] day
    for [Bm] you to lull me [ A Bm A ]

    And all the [Bm] elements con[A]spire
    with shiny [Bm] things that catch the [A] eye
    I was [Em] waiting for the [A] day
    for [Bm] you to lull me [ A Bm A ]

    chorus:
    [Em] Precious, precious [A] thing
    You are the [Bm] thought that makes me [F#m] sing
    Wanna [Em] leave all my pos[A]sessions
    It's a [Bm] rare and precious, [A] precious thing
    [ Bm A Bm A ]

    And all the [Bm] elements con[A]spire
    with shiny [Bm] things that catch the [A] eye
    I was [Em] waiting for the [A] day
    for [Bm] you to lull me [ A Bm A ]
    (chorus)

    bridge:
    And I [Em] know all I [A] need
    is to [Bm] get on the [A] phone
    To [Bm] get on the [A] phone and
    [Bm] ca-a-a-a-all you [A]
    And [Bm] ca-a-a-a-all you [A]
    As clear as [Em] rain on a [A] street
    It shines like [Bm] bright colored [A] stone
    These [Em] things no one can [A] own
    They are [Bm] fo-o-o-o-or you [A]
    //: This is [Bm] fo-o-o-o-or you [A] ://
