Here it is. Due to popular demand (i.e. to stop people requesting it). And also due to the fact that the other versions on line keep it in the original key of B. It makes more sense, for beginners in particular, to move all the chords up a fret so it’s in the more uke-friendly key of C. So if you want to play along with the original, tune down half a step.
I’ve based the chords and tabs on the version in the video (which seems to have survived the cull). It’s very similar to the album version but there are some differences in the intro (and the lyrics but it’s not like they were the world’s ‘bestest’ to begin with).
The strumming in this version (and Aldrine’s version) goes like this:
(d) (u) d – (d) (u) d -
With the strums in brackets being muted strums.
But that’s a little sparse if you are playing the uke by itself. So you could go with.
d u d u d u d u
Emphasizing the second and fourth beats.
Here’s the intro as it’s played
But if you’re doing a solo version it’s easy to fill in the chords in between these parts.
