Our ensemble often has snacks of pastries and coffees during practice session breaks. There is a lot of joking around about sticky ukulele strings, so I thought it might be fun to have a song about it.
None of us are all that creative, so will you all help me write a silly song about it?
 
Well, here's a starter for you. ;)


About once a week
I play uke & seek
All the pastries & cake
At our ukulele break


We get a sticky finger
& that does linger
Upon the string
As the chords do ring
 
It's no fun when cinnamon bun
Ends up on your E string.
And when your Aquila Lava
Is covered in baklava
It's no laughing mah-tah!
 
Ok. I'll play


If You Can’t Join ‘em, Lick ‘em

A sticky-stringed thing is a horrible thing
To play in the comp’ny of friends
‘Twixt the donuts and pastries and Turkish delights
My uke’ sees a stickiness knowing no end

But resisting the sweets is beyond my control
When my nose gets the scent of a fresh jelly roll!
And the heavenly cream of a chocolate éclair?
Get thee, tongue, to the table! Eschew the flatware!

Attempting the strains of a classical piece
The group leader cries, “Legato!”
But my fingers are covered in sugary goo,
Through the glaze come the notes in stickatto

A gospel tune from deep in the south
Finds me with my uke drawing close to my mouth
And when the ensemble rises to sing,
I sit quietly, hungrily licking my strings.

End
 
Ick-ee
Stick-ee
But Oh so sweet

U-ku
Le-Le
At my feet

At the
Tab-le
Eyes open wide

Cook-ies
Brown-ies
Tempt my tummy

But, food-ie
Fing-ers
On my strings

Makes me
Ang-ry
Such nasty things

Nap-kins
Wet-wipes
Are a must!

Be-fore
We play
A-gain, today.
 
Put that burger down before you pick up ma ukulele
Put that burger down before you pick up ma ukulele
All that grease and fat
Well I've have none of that
When you want to play ma u u ukulele
