Verse:
E                                                     Ab
There once was a bitter-sweet man and they called him Lemon Boy
       A                                                Gbm          B
He was growing in my garden and I pulled him out by his hair, like a weed
E                                       Ab
And like weeds do he only came and grew back again
     A                                         Gbm  B
So I figured this time I might as well let him be

Chorus:
A             E                 Ab    Gbm B
Lemon Boy and me started to get along together
     A                  E                      Ab          Gbm B
I'll help him plant his seeds and we'd mow the lawn in bad weather
     A               E          Ab        Gbm    B        A
It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him
           B             E
So I got myself a citrus friend

Verse:
    E                                Ab
But soon his bitter-sweet started to rub off on me
            A                              Gbm       B
You'd think smelling like lemon zest would be pretty neat
  E                                          Ab
I found out that my friends were more of the savory type
         A                                         Gbm        B
And they weren't too keen with compromising with a nice lemon pie

Chorus:
   A             E                  Ab    Gbm B
So Lemon Boy and me, we just got to get along together
   A                   E                      Ab          Gbm B
I helped him plant his seeds and we'd mow the lawn in bad weather
     A               E          Ab        Gbm    B        A
It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him
           B             E
So I got myself a citrus friend

Bridge:
    E                         Ab
But what if I run out of fertilizer?
A                             Am
What if the clouds run out of rain?
A                               E
What if Lemon Boy won't grow no longer?
Ab                           A     Am
What if beaches dry of sugar cane? Oh well,
    E
The whales start to beach themselves
Ab                                   A
Tortoise shells tear away from their spines
   A               Am
It happens all the time
   Gbm     B       E
It happens all the time

Interlude: E Ab A Am Gbm B

Outro:
A             E              Ab   Gbm B
Lemon Boy and I, we're gonna live forever
     A                  E             Ab      Gbm B
Like Snufkin and Little My, we'll get around wherever
A             E              Ab   Gbm B
Lemon Boy and I, we're gonna live forever
     A                  E             Ab      Gbm B
Like Snufkin and Little My, we'll get around wherever
     A               E          Ab        Gbm    B        A
It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him
                B                 A
Cause we're the bitterest boys in town
               B               A
Yeah we're the bitterest guys around
               B             E
and I've got myself a citrus friend

Outro: E A Gbm B E A Gbm B E

To me, Ab just doesn’t sound right in this, what should I use instead?

If you fall under the mezzo-soprano category, I recommend tuning your ukulele to baritone (DGBE) and playing -4! It worked really well for me :)

I found that if go +1 and you replace Bb with G and Bbm with Cm it still sounds ok
