Lean, Look, Love::Original Uke Song

www.facebook.com/ukebabykim

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

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

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! 🙂

{**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!}
