They Don't Play Ukulele
In Hawai'i Anymore

They don't play ukulele in Hawai'i anymore
They like to play those baby guitars with six strings not just four
They like to fret on a short wide neck and pluck those fat bass strings
But the uke's a lot of treble, that's what makes it sing.
So if you hear any bass when I play my ukulele
You're making it up in your head, 'cause it's not coming from me.
No I tune my little uke My Dog Has Fleas
And when I play the scale there is no Middle C. See?
Can't tell if I'm serious? If you've got the time, the patience and
the inclination toward self-damage, have a listen!
