Intro: [F] [C] [Bb] [C]
[F] Raindrops keep falling on my [Fmaj7] head

[C7] But there's one [F] thing I [Fmaj7] know
The [Bb] blues they send to [C] meet me won't de[Am]feat me
It won't be long till [D7] happiness steps [Gm7] up to greet me
[Gm7] [C] [Gm7] [C]
[F] Raindrops keep fallin' on my [Fmaj7] head
But [F7] that doesn't mean my eyes will [Bb] soon be turnin' [Am] red

I’m a Believer
The Monkees
[G] I thought love was [D] only true in [G]
fairy tales.
[G] Meant for someone [D] else but not for
[G] me.
[C] Love was out to [G] get me.
[C] That’s the way it [G] seemed.
[C] Disappointment [G] haunted all my [D]
dreams. [D7]
Chorus
[X] Then I saw her [G] face [C - G]
Now[C] I’m a be[G]liever [C - G]
Not a [G] trace [C - G]
Of [C] doubt in my [G] mind [C - G]
I’m in [G] love, [C]
I’m a be[G]liever!
I couldn’t [F] leave her
If I [D] tried. [D7]
[G] I thought love was [D] more or less a [G]
given thing
[G] Seems the more I [D] gave the less I [G]
got
[C] What’s the use in [G] trying?
[C] All you get is [G] pain.
[C] When I needed [G] sunshine I got [D] rain.

From: Richard G’s Ukulele Songbook
www.scorpex.net/uke.htm
Intro: [C] [G] [Am] [F]
Well [C] you done done me and you bet I felt it
I [G] tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted
I [Am] fell right through the cracks now I'm [F] trying to get back
Before the [C] cool done run out I'll be giving it my best test
And [G] nothing's going to stop me but divine intervention
I [Am] reckon it's again my turn to [F] win some or learn some
But [C] I won't hesi[G]tate no more no [Am] more it cannot [F] wait I'm yours
[C] [G] [Am] [F]
[C] Well open up your mind and see like [G] me
Open up your plans and damn you're [Am] free
Look into your heart and you'll find [F] love love love love
[C] Listen to the music of the moment people dance and [G] sing
We're just one big fami[Am]ly
And it's our God forsaken right to be [F] loved love loved love [D7] loved
So [C] I won't hesi[G]tate no more no [Am] more it cannot [F] wait I'm sure
[C] There's no need to compli[G]cate
Our time is [Am] short this is our [F] fate I'm yours
[C] [Em] [Am] [Em] Scooch on over [F] closer dear
And I will nibble your [D7] ear [C] [Em] [Am] [Em] [F] [D7]
I've been [C] spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And [G] bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my [Am] breath fogged up the glass and so I [F] drew a new face and I laughed
I [C] guess what I'll be saying is there ain't no better reasons
To [G] rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons
It's [Am] what we aim to do our [F] name is our virtue
But [C] I won't hesi[G]tate no more no [Am] more it cannot [F] wait I'm yours
[C] Well open up your mind and see like [G] me
Open up your plans and damn you're [Am] free
Look into your heart and you'll find that [F] the sky is yours
[C] Please don't please don't please don't there's no [G] need to complicate
Cause our [Am] time is short this is our [F] fate I'm your[D7]s

[G] What a day for a [E7] daydream
[Am] What a day for a [D7] daydreamin’ boy

[C] it’s one of those [A7] days for taking a [G] walk out[E7]side
[C] I’m blowing the[A7]day to take a [G] walk in the [E7] sun

[Am] I’ve been dreaming since I [D7] woke up today
[G] It starred me and my [E7] sweet thing
[Am] Cause she’s the one makes me [D7] feel this way
[C] And even if [A7] time is [G] passing me by a [E7] lot
[C] I couldn’t care [A7] less about the [G] dues you say I [E7] got

Whistle: [G] [E7] [Am] [D7] [G] [E7] [Am] [D7]
[C] And you can be [A7] sure that if you’re [G] feeling [E7] right
[C] A daydream will [A7] last along [G] into the [E7] night
[C] Tomorrow at [A7] breakfast you may [G] prick up your [E7] ears
[A7] Or you may be daydreaming for a [D7] thousand years.
[G] What a day for a [E7] daydream
[Am] Custom made for a [D7] daydreamin’ boy

From: Richard G’s Ukulele Songbook www.scorpex.net/Uke
[Em] People are strange [Am] when you're a [Em] stranger
[Am] Faces look [Em] ugly [B7] when you're a[Em]lone
[Em] Women seem wicked [Am] when you're un[Em]wanted
[Am] Streets are un[Em]even [B7] when you're [Em] down
When you're [B7] strange [G] faces come out of the [B7] rain
When you're strange [G] no one remembers your [B7] name
When you're strange when you're strange when you're strange
[Em] People are strange [Am] when you're a [Em] stranger
[Am] Faces look [Em] ugly [B7] when you're a[Em]lone
[Em] Women seem wicked [Am] when you're un[Em]wanted
[Am] Streets are un[Em]even [B7] when you're [Em] down
When you're [B7] strange [G] faces come out of the [B7] rain
When you're strange [G] no one remembers your [B7] name
When you're strange when you're strange when you're strange

Swinging On A Star
Bing Crosby
Hear this song at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rATftJiWdkw (play along with strings detuned 2 semitones)
From: Richard G’s Ukulele Songbook www.scorpex.net/Uke
Intro: [G] [C] [G] [C] [G] [C] [G] (pause)
(Tacet) Would you [E7] like to swing on a [A7] star
Carry [D7] moonbeams home in a [G] jar
And be [E7] better off than you [A7] are [D7] or would you rather be a [G] mule
A [G] mule is an [C] animal with [G] long funny [C] ears
He [G] kicks up at [C] anything he [G] hears [Em7]
His [A7] back is brawny but his [D] brain is weak
He's [Em7] just plain [A7] stupid with a [D] stub[A7]born [D7] streak
And by the [G] way if you [C] hate to go to [G] school [E7]
[Am] You may grow [D7] up to be a [G] mule
(Tacet) Or would you [E7] like to swing on a [A7] star
Carry [D7] moonbeams home in a [G] jar
And be [E7] better off than you [A7] are [D7] or would you rather be a [G] pig
A [G] pig is an [C] animal with [G] dirt on his [C] face
His [G] shoes are a [C] terrible dis[G]grace [Em7]
He [A7] has no manners when he [D] eats his food
He's [Em7] fat and [A7] lazy and ex[D]treme[A7]ly [D7] rude
But if you [G] don't care a [C] feather or a [G] fig [E7]
[Am] You may grow [D7] up to be a [G] pig
(Tacet) Or would you [E7] like to swing on a [A7] star
Carry [D7] moonbeams home in a [G] jar
And be [E7] better off than you [A7] are [D7] or would you rather be a [G] fish
A [G] fish won't do [C] anything but [G] swim in a [C] brook
He [G] can't write his [C] name or read a [G] book [Em7]
To [A7] fool the people is his [D] only thought
And [Em7] though he's [A7] slippery he [D] still [A7] gets [D7]caught
But then if [G] that sort of [C] life is what you [G] wish [E7]
[Am] You may grow [D7] up to be a [G] fish
And all the [E7] monkeys aren't in the [A7] zoo
Every [D7] day you meet quite a [G] few
So you [E7] see it's all up to [A7] you [D7] you can be better than you [E7] are
[Am] You could be [D7] swingin' on a [G] star

Love Potion #9
The Clovers
Hear this song at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nt7htnE1s4o
[Dm] I took my troubles down to [Gm] Madame Ruth
[Dm] You know that gypsy with the [Gm] gold capped tooth
[F] She's got a pad down at [Dm] 34th and Vine
[Gm] Sellin' little bottles of
[A7sus4] Love [A7] Potion Number [Dm] Nine
[Dm] I told her that I was a [Gm] flop with chicks
[Dm] I'd been this way since [Gm] 1956
She [F] looked at my palm and she [Dm] made a magic sign
She [Gm] said "What you need is
[A7sus4] Love [A7] Potion Number [Dm] Nine"
Bridge:
[Gm] She bent down and turned around and gave me a wink
[E7] She said "I'm gonna make it up right here in the sink"
[Gm] It smelled like turpentine and looked like India ink
[A] I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink
[Dm] I didn't know if it was [Gm] day or night
[Dm] I started kissin' every[Gm]thing in sight
But [F] when I kissed the cop down at [Dm] 34th and Vine
He [Gm] broke my little bottle of
[A7sus4] Love [A7] Potion Number [Dm] Nine

Van Morrison
Well it's a [Gm7] marvelous [Am7] night for a [Gm7] moondance [Am7]
With the [Gm7] stars up [Am7] above in your [Gm7] eyes [Am7]
A fan[Gm7]tabulous [Am7] night to make [Gm7] romance [Am7]
Beneath the [Gm7] cover of [Am7] October [Gm7] skies [Am7]
All the [Gm7] leaves of the [Am7] trees are [Gm7] falling [Am7]
To the [Gm7] sound of the [Am7] breezes that [Gm7] blow [Am7]
You know I'm [Gm7] trying to [Am7] plead to the [Gm7] calling [Am7]
Of your [Gm7] heart strings that [Am7] play soft and[Gm7] low[Am7]
You know the [Cm7] night's [Gm7] magic
Seems to [Cm7] whisper and [Gm7]hush
You know the [Cm7] soft [Gm7] moonlight
Seems to [Cm7] shine on your [D] blush
Can [Gm7] I just [Cm7] have one [Gm7] more moon [Cm7] dance
with [Gm7] you [Cm7] my [Gm7] love [Cm7]
Can [Gm7] I just [Cm7] make some [Gm7] more ro[Cm7]mance
with [Gm7]you [Cm7] my [Gm7]love [D]
Well I [Gm7] wanna make [Am7] love to you [Gm7] tonight [Am7]
I can't [Gm7] wait till the [Am7] moment has [Gm7] come [Am7]
Yeah and I [Gm7] know that the [Am7] time is [Gm7] just right [Am7]
And straight [Gm7] into my [Am7] arms you will [Gm7] run [Am7]
When you [Gm7] come my [Am7] heart will be [Gm7] waiting [Am7]
To make [Gm7] sure that you're [Am7] never [Gm7] alone [Am7]
There and[Gm7] then all my [Am7] dreams will come [Gm7] true dear[Am7]
There and [Gm7] then I will [Am7] make you my [Gm7] own [Am7]
Every [Cm7] time I [Gm7]touch you
You just [Cm7] tremble [Gm7] inside
Then I [Cm7] know how [Gm7] much you
Want me [Cm7] that you can't [D] hide
Can [Gm7] I just [Cm7] have one [Gm7] more moon [Cm7] dance
with [Gm7] you [Cm7] my [Gm7] love [Cm7]
Can [Gm7] I just [Cm7] make some [Gm7] more ro[Cm7]mance
with [Gm7]you [Cm7] my [Gm7]love [D]
Ukes only play four lines of first verse.

My [F] back turned towards the [C] sun
[C] Lord knows when the [G] cold wind blows
It'll [Bbmaj7] turn your head around
Well there's [C] hours of time on the [Gm7] telephone line
To [F] talk about things to [C] come
[C] Sweet dreams and [G] flying machines in [Bbmaj7] pieces on the ground
[F] I've seen [Dm] fire and [G7] I've seen [C] rain
I've seen [F] sunny days that I [Dm] thought would [G7] never [C] end

I’m a Believer
The Monkees
[G] I thought love was [D] only true in [G]
fairy tales.
[G] Meant for someone [D] else but not for
[G] me.
[C] Love was out to [G] get me.
[C] That’s the way it [G] seemed.
[C] Disappointment [G] haunted all my [D]
dreams. [D7]
Chorus

I’m in [G] love, [C]
I’m a be[G]liever!
I couldn’t [F] leave her
If I [D] tried. [D7]
[G] I thought love was [D] more or less a [G]
given thing
[G] Seems the more I [D] gave the less I [G]

[C] All you get is [G] pain.
[C] When I needed [G] sunshine I got [D] rain.

Karma Chameleon
[Bb] Is there loving in your [F] eyes all the [Bb] way.
[Bb] If I listened to your [F] lies would you [Bb] say
I'm a [Eb] man (a man) without [F] conviction,
I'm a [Eb] man (a man) who doesn't [F] know
how to [Eb] sell (to sell) a contra [F]diction.
You come and [Eb] go, you come and [Gm] go. [F]
Chorus: [Bb] Karma karma karma [F] karma karma chamele [Gm]-on,
you come and [Cm] go, you come and [Bb] go. [F]
[Bb] Loving would be easy if your [F] colours were like my [Gm] dreams,
red gold and [Cm] green, red gold and [Bb] green. [F]
[Bb] Didn't hear your wicked [F] words every [Bb] day
[Bb] and you used to be so [F] sweet, I heard you [Bb] say
that my [Eb] love (my love) was an [F] addiction.
When we [Eb] cling (we cling) our love is [F] strong.
When you [Eb] go (you go) you're gone [F] forever.
You string a [Eb]long, you string a [Gm]long. [F]
Chorus
[Eb] Every day is like [Dm] survival,
[Eb] you're my lover, not my [Gm] rival.
[Eb] Every day is like [Dm] survival,
[Eb] you're my lover, not my [Gm] ri-[F]-val.
Harmonica (or kazoo!) break: [Bb] / [F] / [Bb] / [Bb] // [Bb] / [F] / [Bb] / [Bb] /
I'm a [Eb] man (a man) without [F] conviction,
I'm a [Eb] man (a man) who doesn't [F] know
how to [Eb] sell (to sell) a contra [F]diction.

The things we’ve done to[F]gether
While our hearts were [E7] young
[A] I’m a walkin’ in the rain
[F#m] Tears are fallin’ and I feel the pain
[A] Wishin’ you were here by me [F#m] to end this misery
And I [A] wonder I wa wa wa wa [F#m] wonder

And I [D] wonder where she will [E7] stay

AMSTERDAM

Ukelele: klein, fijn
en gegarandeerd
uren tokkelplezier
Ukelele. Metro bezoekt
geregeld bijzondere winkels
in de stad. Vandaag: Uke
Boutique.
Een exotische dame met rieten rokje
lacht je tegemoet op de poster aan de
voordeur. Haar handen houden een
kleine gitaar vast. Niet zomaar een
gitaar, maar een ukelele. Binnen hangen de ukeleles overal aan de muren.
Qua grootte zijn ze allemaal hetzelfde, maar met kleuren als roze, groen
of een print ziet het er zeker niet saai
uit. In een hoekje op de bank zit eigenaresse Candace Bloom (53) te tokkelen op haar eigen instrument. “Het
geluid is zo rustgevend, je ontstrest
er helemaal van.” En inderdaad: zodra je de ogen sluit, waan je jezelf op
een bounty-eiland.
Nog geen half jaar geleden opende de Amerikaanse Bloom de Uke
Boutique aan de Lijnbaansgracht. “Ik
wilde totaal iets anders en weg uit
Amerika. Toen kwam ik hier terecht.
Vanaf het begin wist ik dat ik een
winkel wilde openen en in combinatie met mijn achtergrond als muzieklerares kwam ik bij de ukelele uit.”
Voor Bloom is haar winkel een gat
in de markt. “In Amerika en Canada
is de ukelele enorm populair, dus ik
was verrast dat het multiculturele
Amsterdam nog geen speciaalzaak
had. Vorig jaar speelde ik wel eens
op een bankje in het Vondelpark en
dan zag ik de mensen raar kijken. Ze
zullen vast gedacht hebben wie die
vrouw met die gekke kleine gitaar
was”, lacht ze.
Bloom is blij dat steeds meer Nederlanders de weg naar haar winkel
weten te vinden. Ze verkoopt namelijk niet alleen maar ukeleles, maar
geeft ook les in het spelen ervan.
“Al is het lastig dat ik nog geen Nederlands spreek. Gelukkig reageren
klanten begripvol en schakelen ze
over op Engels. Maar ik wil de taal
zeker gaan leren!” In december is
Bloom een orkestgroep gestart. Met
het Ukulele Orchestra Of Amsterdam
hoopt ze het instrument meer bekendheid te geven en in de toekomst
veel op te kunnen treden. “Momenteel bestaan onze bijeenkomsten
vooral uit jamsessies, maar ik zou
graag op Amsterdamse festivals willen spelen.”
Zelf heeft ze meerdere ukeleles
in haar bezit die ze regelmatig in de
winkel bespeelt. “Als mensen zelf
willen oefenen, geef ik ze mijn ukelele.” Voor Bloom moet de ukelele
wel altijd goed afgestemd zijn. “Niets
is erger dan een verkeerde toon, dat
is echt de basis.” Lachend voegt ze
daaraan toe: “Mijn motto is niet voor
niets ‘tune it or die!’”

Klein maar fijn
Een klein instrument met een groot
bereik.
Ʉ JėėĮĨȩ De ukelele komt oorspronkelijk uit Portugal. Het instrument heeft
zich daarna verspreid over meerdere
landen, veelal door Portugese
immigranten die een exemplaar bij
zich hadden.
Ʉ #ÿĮÑÑĤîÑđÿČÿåȩ De ukelele lijkt op een
gitaar, maar heeft vier snaren en is
veel kleiner.
Ʉ GĤÿĉĨȩ In de Uke Boutique zijn er al
ukeleles vanaf 60 euro. Het duurste
exemplaar is 1700 euro en betreft
een limited edition van het merk
Hello Kitty.
Ʉ NėėĤĮåĒȩ De meeste instrumenten
zijn nieuw, maar Bloom heeft ook
een oud exemplaar in de verkoop.
Deze stamt uit 1913.
Ʉ &ÑĒáÿûȩ Vooral het formaat maakt
de ukelele een handig bespeelbaar
instrument. “Het is een instrument
dat iedereen kan spelen, of je nou 3
jaar of 103 jaar bent”, lacht Bloom.
Candace Bloom tokkelt samen met haar partner Neil Foster. “Hij was mijn eerste ukeleleleerling.”
