Five Easy Songs to Play on a Ukulele

Ukuleles are getting popular each day and children are more likely to pick up a uke at school than a keyboard or recorder; probably because they sound better, non-threatening in terms of size and they’re even easier to learn. Taylor Swift plays one, as so does Meghan Trainor, with her ukulele acoustic version of All About That Bass. Ukuleles are also a great way to meet people, play and sing songs together! They are so small in size, a little soprano ukulele fits into your backpack and you can take it with you to the beach or to picnics or wherever you travel. It is something you could carry around all day long without even realizing you are carrying a sweet sounding musical instrument and last but not the least another wonderful reason for learning ukulele is because ukuleles are extremely affordable. You can pick up a ukulele for well Rs.3500. How awesome is that! Don’t let their price and size make you feel that they are toys – these ukuleles are real instruments which can produce some great music. So if you don’t own a Ukulele yet, go get one and incase you already have one –check out these 5 popular and easy to play Uke songs! Click to view the Ukulele tabs for each song.

5) I AM YOURS- JASON MRAZ

C

Well you done done me and you bet I felt it

G

I tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted

Am F

I fell right through the cracks now I'm trying to get back

C

Before the cool done run out I'll be giving it my bestest

G

And nothing's going to stop me but divine intervention

Am F

I reckon it's again my turn to win some or learn some

C G

But I won't hesitate no more no more

Am F

It cannot wait I'm yours

C

Well open up your mind and see like me

G

Open up your plans and damn you're free

Am F

Look into your heart and you'll find love love love love

C

Listen to the music of the moment people dance and sing

G

we're just one big family

Am F

It's our God-forsaken right to be loved love loved love love

C G

So I won't hesitate no more no more

Am F

It cannot wait I'm sure

C G

There's no need to complicate our time is short

Am F

This is our fate I'm yours

D-d-do do you but do you d-d-do

But do you want to come on

Scooch on over closer dear

And I will nibble your ear

C

I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror

G

And bending over backward just to try to see it clearer

Am

But my breath fogged up the glass

F

And so I drew a new face and I laughed

C

I guess what I be saying is there ain't no better reason

G

To rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons

Am F

It's what we aim to do our name is our virtue

But I won't hesitate no more no more

It cannot wait I'm yours

C

Open up your mind and see like me

I won't hesitate

G

Open up your plans and damn you're free

No more no more

Am G

Look into your heart and you'll find that the sky is yours

It cannot wait I'm sure

So please don't please don't please dont

There's no need to complicate

There's no need to complicate

Our time is short

Cause our time is short

This is our fate

This is this is this is our fate

I'm yours
