    My first song was "Have You Ever Seen the Rain" by CCR. Most CCR songs only have a few chords and were good for starting out.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" yet ;-)
    Mine was one of my favourites, Harry Belafonte's "Jamaica Farewell."

    Played guitar for 50+ years before I tried ukulele. My first uke was a Kala concert and my first song was Something by George Harrison. I knew the chords and practiced on the guitar with the capo on the 5th fret and playing uke chords on the first 4 strings.

    At the beginners' table at my ukulele club, using one of the club's loaner ukes, "Frere Jacques" using only a C chord. Then "Singing in the Rain" using an F and C7 chord.

    I sat at the beginners' table for two meetings and I was hooked. So I bought my first uke, a tenor Fender Nohea koa laminate from Amazon. It was six months before I learned about setups and different strings.

    Picking Can't Help Falling in Love With You. My first classes started with tabs and picking.
    Couldn't for the life of me figure out island strum well until If I Should Fall Behind (Linda Ronstadt version). 3 chords and you don't even need to move your hand. You can just focus on letting the strum flow.

    I alternated between trying to learn "This Land Is Your Land" and "Blue Skies".

    (Now I alternate trying to learn songs in four binders.)
