Lyrics

MAYBE YOU KNOW

HOW SOME PEOPLE GO FOR HONKYTONK PIANO

AND IT'S EXCITIN' FOR SOME

HEARIN' THE DRUMS BEATIN' WITH THE BAND

AND IT MIGHT BE YOUR TASTE

TO HEAR A BASS LAYIN' DOWN A LINE, OH SO LOW

BUT AS FOR ME

I LOVE THE UKULELE

 

COULD BE YOU CHOOSE

THE SOUND OF THE BLUES HARMONICA PLAYIN'

AND WHEN THEY HEAR VIOLIN

SOME FOLKS BEGIN GRINNIN' EAR TO EAR

AND 'CAUSE PLAYIN' KAZOO

IS EASY TO DO, YOU LIKE TO ROOTY-TOOT-TOOT-TOOT-TOOT-TOOT

BUT AS FOR ME

I LOVE THE UKULELE

 

     'CAUSE IT TAKES ME AWAY

     WHEN I HEAR SOMEONE PLAY UKULELE

     TO WHERE I WANNA BE

     WHERE THE SAND GREETS THE SEA IN HAWAII

     I'M TALKIN' WAIKIKI

 

I SEE HOW YOUR THING

COULD BE A FIVE-STRING BANJO PLAYER PICKIN'

AND HOW YOU MIGHT THINK IT'S TOPS 

TO HEAR A FLAT TOP GUITAR PICKER, TOO

OH, HOW A MANDOLIN FILL 

CAN GIVE YOU A TRILL, MAKE YOU SING YODEL-ODELAY-HEE-HOO

BUT AS FOR ME

I LOVE THE UKULELE

BUT AS FOR ME 

I LOVE THE UKULELE
