This was a fun song to write. I was tired of writing love songs, and my lament to my husband, who happened to be playing his ukulele, inspired this one. I don’t usually do silly songs, but this was fun and just what I needed to lighten my mood.

Here are the lyrics:

I’m tired of writing love songs
I need an upbeat tune
no more wailing on guitar
or howling at the moon

Those sappy scrappy love songs
they start to make me cringe
I need a change, a different tune
a life out on the fringe

When all your songs are love songs
you wonder what to do
I’m sick of sappy love songs
so instead I’ll play the uke

I took your uke down off the wall
to write this silly song
if you dont mind I’ll put it back
i’m sure it wont take long

a uke song is a happy one
its hard to wear a frown
when playing ukulele
that frown turns upside down

When all your songs are love songs
you wonder what to do
I’m sick of sappy love songs
so instead I’ll play the uke

On the uke it is much easier
to play that damn F chord
It opens up a bigger world
of writing songs galore

Thank you for your instrument
You are so very kind
I love the way you look at me
when I’m singing by your side

Oh shit

It turned into a love song
I think that I am doomed
To sing of love in every song
until I’m sixty two

When all your songs are love songs
you wonder what to do
I’m sick of sappy love songs
and I guess this one is too
