Intro: C

 C
don't you worry, there my honey
 F
we might not have any money
 Am                               F
but we've got our love to pay the bills

 C
maybe I think you're cute and funny,
 F                            Am
maybe I wanna do what bunnies do with you,
                   F
if you know what I mean

     C                 E               F                     C
Oh, let's get rich and buy our parents homes in the South of France
                             E
let's get rich and give everybody nice sweaters
    F                 G
and teach them how to dance
          C                  E
let's get rich and build our house on a mountain
       F                   D
making everybody look like ants
            C              F  G       C
from way up there, you and I, you and I


well you might be a bit confused
    F
and you might be a little bit bruised
    Am                            F
but baby how we spoon like no one else
   C
so I will help you read those books
   F
if you will soothe my worried looks
    Am                              F
and we will put the lonesome on the shelf


     C                 E               F                     C
Oh, let's get rich and buy our parents homes in the South of France
                             E
let's get rich and give everybody nice sweaters
    F                 G
and teach them how to dance
          C                  E
let's get rich and build our house on a mountain
       F                   D
making everybody look like ants
            C              F  G       C
from way up there, you and I, you and I

- no guitar -

oh, let’s get rich and buy our parents homes in the south of France
let's get rich and give everybody nice sweaters
and teach them how to dance
let's get rich and build our house on a mountain
making everybody look like ants
from way up there you and I, you and I, you and I

    I think E7 is both easier and more accurate sounding as a substitute for E

    I don’t use a strumming pattern on the chorus, but usually I do d d u u d u

  3. Lisadabanana

    I use the back as a drum during the silent part and when the song is over I finish it off with a little personal flair ( g ) badum ( c ) dum!!

  4. BadStrummer

    i usually strum this as d d u d u haha lol

  5. I lik song :)

  6. The G instead of the E in the chorus sounds better :)))

  7. Thanks for the E7 tip, that works in so nicely and sounds much nicer than G.

  8. thephantom368

    Easy e chord for me

    A| 2
    e| 4
    c| 4
    g| 4

    Its a variation of the d chord. Use it all the time and made e a lot less intimidating.

  9. Looks like you just copied the guitar chords XD

  10. brooksieb

    if you listen to the song a few times, its easy to figure any strumming pattern issues or any note change issues

  11. A Person Who Loves Ukuleles

    Transposed +6 is really easy…

  12. ive looked at several covers and i think “up up down down up down” its whats used most common :)

  13. Question!?!?

    What strumming pattern do you guys use?

  14. i use E7 instead of E
