Intro -x2-: D  A  Bm  G  A  G  A

Verse:
D
Up on melancholy hill
                  A
There's a plastic tree
                  Bm
Are you here with me
     G                  A
Just looking out on the day
           G      A
Of another dream

Verse:
D
Well you can't get what you want
                A 
But you can get me
                    Bm 
So let's set up and see
       G              A
'cause you are my medicine
                     G    A      
When you're close to me
                     D
When you're close to me

Interlude: D  A  Bm  G  A  G  A

Verse:
   D
So call in the submarine
                      A
Round the world we'll go
             Bm
Does anybody know
         G                  A
If we're looking out on the day
           G      A
Of another dream?

Bridge:
D  A  Bm      G                      A 
           If you can't get what you want
                     G    A
Then you come with me

Verse:
D                      A
Up on melancholy hill
           Bm
Sits a manatee
     G                   A
Just looking out for the day
                     G    A
When you're close to me
                     D  A  Bm  G  A  G  A
When you're close to me
                     D  A  Bm  G  A  G  A
When you're close to me

  1. for the intro and interlude is something like
    G——————————————————————————————————————————-
    C—2—–2——2——-21—-1—-1—1——-2—–2—-2——-1—-11—-1——1–2—-2–1—2—2
    E——————————————————————————————————–————————
    A——0—–0——0——0—-0—-0——-0—–0—-0——-0—-0————0—0———0——0—0-

  2. am i the only one who does weird things to remember chords? for example for this i remember: DAB GAGA
    and think of lady gaga dabbing

  3. the strumming pattern i use is ddu udu udu if any help

  4. when i found this i literally died

  5. i really like A, Gbm, Bm and then e7
    give it a go and le me know what you guys think :)

  6. For the verses i do single down strums and for the rest i do D D U U D-U

  7. I used easy slow light strumming, it makes the song sound much more calm and nice

  8. Playing this on a baritone ukulele is really fun and sounds pretty cool just to put that out there!

    Hey, just a suggestion to anyone who can’t play the ukulele too well or are beginners, playing it in C is easier and still sounds beautiful ?

  10. Put it on -2 it sounds a lot better and is incredibly easy

    • I’ve tried a couple different transposes, and I have to say my favorite is definitely -2, just saying you guys; sounds just like the song to me. Anyways, have fun!

    could someone give me a picking chart for the interlude

    • I’ve been learning this over the last few days and I’ve found it’s just plucking the C and A string while holding down the regular chords for the song (D, A, Bm, G, A, G, A). Sounds right as far as I can tell. Something like this:
      D A Bm G A
      G——————————————————————————————————-
      C—2—–2——2——-1—-1—-1——-2—–2—-2——-2—-2—-2——1—-1—1————————-
      E——————————————————————————————————–
      A——0—–0——0——0—-0—-0——-2—–2—-2——-2—-2————0—0—————————
