    Default I want a brand new ukulele - original

    Hello there - a seasonal tale of rampant materialism that many of us can relate to. I wrote this song earlier in the year but was prompted to re-do it for the Stockton to Darlington Ukulele Express ladies and gents as we may be trying it as a group in the new year. Fits in with the mood of late December when we what we want and what we get very rarely coincides. Humbug.

    Cheers
    Mike

    Very nicely done! I will say, though, that if you have any nasty old used Kamaka or Martin ukes come your way you can pass 'em on to me since they're not "brand new." LOL

    I'm not entirely convinced that it is possible to polish a turd. However, if one were to accomplish that feat one would still have a turd, and one all the more noticeable for being shiny.
