Original Song::Don’t Ask Me To Dance

https://www.facebook.com/ukebabykim/

I like to write quirky songs–this be one of them. 🙂 This song is adapted for the ukulele based from lyrics and melody that I originally wrote to German Music Producer and Friend, Steffen Offermann’s {stoman.org} very fun track. Hope you enjoy! 🙂

 

Don’t Ask Me To Dance

 

[Am] He stormed quickly from the floor; headed out the door.

 

Like those [Dm] 20 times before; but he usually came [Am] back … for more.

 

[Am]I’d always look him straight in the eye questioning every reply

 

He’d give [Dm] excuses why he didn’t want to do[Am] it anymore.

 

[Gm]So I stood there with both feet glued to the floor [Am]refusing to give him anymore room I [Dm]swore I wouldn’t give up on him like I had [Dm] 20 times before.  He yelled,

 

[Em]“Don’t Ask Me to Dance. I don’t want this romance. [Am]No more chance of messing it up Like I’ve [Dm—finger up] done 20 times [Dm]before!”

 

[Em] He He yelled, “Don’t Ask Me to Dance.  Don’t you understand? [Am]I don’t want this chance so please stop [Dm] asking.  Don’t Ask Me to [Dm]Dance anymore!”  [Em]

 

 

[Am]He stormed quickly from the floor; but then turned around and asked, [Dm]  “Is it only love songs you want from me like[Am] all the times before?”

 

[Am]I responded with a glare, half smile; and full, dark stare.  [Dm] “Why can’t you just do this one thing for me like you’ve [Am]done 20 times, before.

 

[Gm]And I stood there with both feet glued to the floor [Am]refusing to give him anymore room I [Dm]swore I wouldn’t give up on him like I had [[Dm] 20 times before. He yelled,

 

[Dm]No romance. [Dm]   Don’t Ask Me to Dance [Am]No chance. [Dm]Don’t Ask Me to Dance

9 weeks of uke playing and feel more and more grateful each day to have been encouraged to try this tiny instrument of happy, happy, joy, joy. 🙂 I hope wherever you’re at in your journey; you’re loving it too! Keep on keeping on, Folks! 🙂

Eye Like Punny Songs::Chords

Eye Like Punny Songs

[C]Eye like [G]punny jokes and silly [C7]rhymes,

And [F]poems that make you laugh and think about[C7] life.

[C]Eye like [G]funny songs that carry ewe along and [F]right some of the wrongs and make you wanna [C7]smile.

[F]To start us off we got a [C7]husband on a scale.

He’s [Dm]sucking in his gut and [Am]peering with [C7]wonder.

[F]His wife says to him, “Honey, [C7]that ain’t gonna help.”

He [Dm]responds, “Yeah, but now, I can [Am] see the [C7]numbers.”

[F]A Sunday School teacher asked her class,  [C7]“What did Jesus do? After being in a tomb?”

[Dm]She hinted, “It starts with the letter “R.”

[F]And with a lot of excitement, a girl [Am]yells,”Hey, I know… he (R)ecycled!”[C7]

 

Bridge:

[Dm]Did you ever ask yourself why koalas aren’t bears?

[C7]The answer is because they aren’t [Am] koala-fied.

[Dm]Have you ever wondered why It’s called pair-a-noia?

[C7]Because one-annoy-ya just [Am]isn’t enough!

[Dm]I sat up all night asking where the sun could be

[C7]Then, lo’ and behold, it [Am]*dawned* on me.

[Dm]And did you know you can tune ‘neath a piano lid

[C7]But you can never ever ever tune a tuna fish!
