Today’s treat: a live video performance of a brand new original song (just finished on Monday).
Having recently fallen in love with the ukulele, and being a self-proclaimed Dating Queen, I thought it appropriate that my first uke song stick to the theme.
Let me know what you think!
And though the lyrics are in the video, here they are again, just for fun.
My Ukulele (Might Just Be The Best Love I’ve Ever Had)
I was lookin’ for a love to call my own.
One that won’t keep me hangin’ by the phone.
I’ve been on a lot of dates, and I’ve kissed a lot of frogs,
And I’ve come to the conclusion that most men are dogs!
Finding a good one is something of a fluke,
But I found a solution: I got me a uke..
Keeps me up all night,
Makes me feel all right.
My little ukulele never leaves me feeling lonely or sad
(So I’m sorry boys, but)
My ukulele might just be the best love I’ve ever had!
My ukulele feels so good in my arms.
And never gets seduced by other women’s charms.
All I have to do is tickle his strings
And he whispers in my ear the sweetest little things.
And thought he doesn’t have any hands or a tongue,
When I’m wearing a strap, my uke is really well hung!
Makes me feel so good.
Got really nice wood.
My little ukulele never leaves me feeling unsatisfied
(Girls, how many guys can you say that about?)
My ukulele might just be the best love I’ve ever tried.
Now it’s true my ukulele doesn’t drive a nice car,
Never takes me out dancing our out to a bar,
But that’s okay by me, ’cause we do other things..
My ukulele might be small but he can make me sing!
My ukulele knows just how to make me hum,
And if you’re a guy, you could learn a lot from…
Puts a smile on my face.
Always lets me set the pace.
And though my ukulele’s nowhere near as big as my guitar,
(Size isn’t everything, and besides)
We can have a lot more fun in the back of my car!
I think I’ll bring my ukulele home to meet my mom and dad,
‘Cause my ukulele might just be the best love I’ve ever had!

Liked the song Melissa – how long have you been playing the ukulele? Definitely had to check the spelling on that one. I pictured a bouncing ball to go along with the printed lyrics in your video! Good luck with your new love!

Thanks Susan! I just started playing ukulele a couple of weeks ago at music camp, and fell in love with it! Totally unexpected. 🙂

Cool lyric! I never knew ukulele could be this awesome. I definitely will look more into it.
