Who the hottest in the world right now.

Just touched down in London town.

Tell them put the money in my hand right now.
Am7
Tell the promoter we need more seats,

We just sold out all the floor seats

I like the way he's speaking his confidence is peaking.
                     Am7                              Fmaj7
Don't like his baggy jeans but I'm a like what's underneath them.
               Emaj7
And no I ain't been to MIA
  Cmaj7                           Am7             Fmaj7

Can we get away this weekend?
Take me to Broadway.
Let's go shopping baby then we'll go to a café.
Let's go on the subway.
Take me to your hood.
I never been to Brooklyn and I'd like to see what's good.
Dress in all your fancy clothes.
Sneaker's looking Fresh to death, I'm loving those Shell Toes.
Walking that walk.
Talk that slick talk.
I'm liking this American Boy. American Boy.


Emaj7                       Cmaj7
Take me to Chicago, San Francisco Bay.
Am7                              Fmaj7
Take me to New York, I'd love to see LA.

Let them know a gwan blud

Who Killing em in the UK.
Everybody gonna to say you K, reluctantly, because most of this press don't f**k with me.
Estelle once said to me, "Cool down, down, don't act a fool now, now."
I always act a fool oww oww.
Ain't nothing new now now.
He crazy, I know what ya thinkin.
Ribena I know what you're drinking.
Rap singer. Chain Blinger.
Holla at the next chick soon as you're blinking.
What's you're persona.
About this Americana Brama.
am I shallow cause all my clothes designer.
Dressed smart like a London Bloke.
Before he speak his suit bespoke.
And you thought he was cute before.
Look at this peacoat, tell me he's broke.
And I know you're not into all that.
I heard your lyrics I feel your spirit.
But I still talk that CASH.
Cause a lot wags want to hear it.
And I'm feeling like Mike at his Baddest.
The Pips at they Gladys.
And I know they love it.
So to hell with all that rubbish

Would you be my love, my love.
Could be mine would you be my love my love, could be mine
Could you be my love, my love.
Would you be my American Boy. American Boy


Emaj7                          Cmaj7

Am7                              Fmaj7

    Damn, Am7 it’s so hard, i can’t play it

  2. I’m trying to figure out a substitute for Emaj7, does anyone have ideas?

    • If you put your third finger on fourth fret on the C string it might be slightly easier to play, it sounds more like the note in the instrumental too

    If you don’t mind telling me, can you please tell me the strumming pattern for this song. I’m a beginner on the Uke and I really love this song!!! Thanks so much!

  4. SolarSailor

    -5 is the easiest
