Original Ukulele Song::You Know The Kind

It’s been a while since I’ve written a new song.  I become more and more thankful for my ukulele journey — now moving toward 8 months of playing, loving, and being ever more and more grateful! This original song is called, You Know The Kind.  Don’t let anyone steal your joy!  🙂 🙂  Blessings for a wonderful and happy dappy Thursday!! 🙂


Lean, Look, Love::Original Uke Song


Some songs are more challenging than others. Original uke song, Lean, Look, Love is certainly was one of those as you’ll be able to tell but I still very much enjoyed the journey from concept to “print.” Ultimately, it’s about the long, never-ending journey (for me anyway) of what truly matters to me in this lifetime. 🙂 Happy Blessed weekend and I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed working on it.

(The next few weeks will be a little less productive (I think anyway) as I prepare for an international trip; however I hope once I’m settled, I can work on everything a little more consistently. We’ll see! Thank you VERY VERY much for following along and for being incredibly encouraging and kind to this fledgling singer/uke enthusiast!) 🙂 🙂

Original Song::Don’t Ask Me To Dance


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

Original Song for the Ukulele::Thaw Out::Inspired by Tony Cas {StratCas} Music


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! 🙂

I wrote these lyrics and melody a couple of years ago against a beautiful backing track created by Tony Cas of New York. He is an amazing musician and a nice friend. Thanks, Tony! 🙂

Try! An Original Song for the Uke :)


7 weeks today I started on my uke journey! This simple tune is dedicated to anyone who wants to Try!

Come find me at UkeBaby Kim if you’d like to follow along! 🙂


{**EDIT! I accidentally reset something incorrectly on my tuner so it’s off two semi-tones–in order to follow along, you can either re-tune your uke strings to D tuning or two-semitones down. I’m very sorry and will definitely try and correct it for the future so I have the correct chords! Thank you!}

My Soul’s Romance::Original Song for the Ukulele

Five weeks and 3 days! What a wonderful ride full of bumps, bruises and mostly blessings! 🙂 Here, I feature a brand new, original song on my upgraded acoustic-electric uke called, My Soul’s Romance.

Also, I created this Facebook Page called UkeBaby Kim 🙂 🙂 if anyone is interested in following this ukulele newbie. 🙂 My goal is simply to encourage anyone and everyone who wants it. Particularly those people who have been discouraged by inside fears and outside elitists. Will plan on posting encouragements, funnies, and thoughts for the journey as I travel! I will also include the chord charts for any original, ukulele songs and post some special collaborations where international friends have added mixing magic and instruments to some of the original songs to complete tracks. I have about 6 originals written for the ukulele if anyone wants very simple, easy, fluffy pop tunes to practice with. 🙂


Happy S(uke)nday to Everyone! 🙂
