    This one opens with whipped cream, but there aren't a lot of dairy products in the song I'm afraid. I think the cheese tray makes an appearance.
    I heard Garrison Keillor sing this on a Prairie Home Companion radio show years ago and copied the words intending to learn it, but I didn't and now I can't recall the tune, so I tried a few generic tunes and this one sounded OK.
    I decided to play the uke left-handed today to give myself a challenge. (Actually my phone decided to flip my image even though I don't think I did anything differently from usual)

    My first offering this week came to me in a half awake state last night at 4 am. I slipped out of bed and wrote the body of it.

    There are lots of songs about Milkmaids in the tradition. This is one that gives a modern twist to the theme.

    Hope you enjoy:

    For Season of the Ukulele 448, "Milk", here's "Sweet Dreams Are Made of Cheese", a song celebrating perhaps the most notable product of milk processing. For concert ukulele with singing, overdubs of Ashbory Ubass and secondary vocals.

    Hey, Christopher! Thanks for hosting this season of milky treats...
    This morning I was mulling over what to bring to this season when I spotted my favourite Star Wars socks in the wash basket. This naturally led me to thinking about blue milk and it didn't take long for that initial thought to become this...a fairly straightforward rocker set a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away sung from the perspective of a Tatooine moisture farmer, parched from a long day's toil tending the vaporator...

    Well, it is noon time in Hawaii and pushing on towards midnight here in the heart of Europe. I am off to bed, but very pleased to report that there were 11 videos shared on this thread in the first twelve hours of the season. Thank you one and all for a great start. The playlist is up to date and ready to assist you. Now if I could just get the slurping sounds of the puddle of blue cheese out of my head, I could get some rest. Good night, all!

    During the open mic, I suggested "Whole Latte Love".

    This is a Procol Harum song. By now, I've done half of the A Salty Dog album for the Seasons.

    First thing I thought of. Please forgive me for what I have done...
