Intro:
    |C   G   |Am   F  |C   G   |
    |Am      |F       |

    C        Em       F        C
    ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo
    F        E7       Am       F
    ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo


C         Em                F       C
Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
F       C                        G            Am   F
And the dreams that you dream of once in a lullaby...
   C         Em                F          C
Oh somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly
F       C                         G                   Am   F
And the dreams that you dream of, dreams really do come true...


    C
Someday i'll wish upon a star
G                                Am   F
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
      C
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
G                                  Am           F
High above the chimney tops that's where you'll find me


   C         Em               F           C
Oh somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly
F       C                           G               Am   F
And the dreams that you dare to, oh why, oh why can't I?...


           C        Em        F         C
Well I see trees of green and Red roses too
F                C         E7     Am
 I'll watch then bloom for me and you
      F                G                Am   F
And I think to myself: what a wonderful world
           C        Em             F         C
Well I see skies of blue and I see clouds of white
        F              C   E7         Am
And the brightness of day, I like the dark
      F                G                C    F   C
And I think to myself: what a wonderful world 


    G                      C
The colours of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
    G                    C
Are also on the faces of people passing bye
    F               C      F              C
See friends shaking hands, saying 'how do you do?'
F               C       Dm7             D
 They're really saying, I...I love you


       C      Em        F          C
I hear babies cry and I watch them grow
F                   C    E7         Am
 They'll learn much more than we'll know
     F                 G                Am   F
And I think to myself: what a wonderful world 


C
Someday i'll wish upon a star
G                                Am   F
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
       C
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
G                                  Am           F
High above the chimney tops that's where you'll find me


   C         Em                F      C
Oh somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
F       C                        G                 Am   F
And the dreams that you dare to, why, oh why can't I?...


C        Em       F        C
ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo
F        E7       Am      F
ooo-ooo  ooo-ooo  ooo-a-eh-a-a-a-a-a-a

    ur all nerds who probably think you will get the girl but noooooo

    • even though you’re an insecure teen who crying over his depressing life, we already have families and went through school and obtained hobbies and don’t care that you think we’re uncool for having a talent

    • GryffinWolf91

      Really? You wanted to go there? You have no idea what love or happiness is do you? Now let me tell you something. Were not nerds first of all. Were caring people who love to share our talents. Besides YOU”RE on this tab too. Second, you should stop caring about what other people are doing and mind your own business. Telling people that they’re not good enough even though they are won’t make you feel better about yourself. And even though were all more talented than you, hater, we don’t care. No ones cares about your stupid hate comments. So mind your own business and stay out of ours.

    • Ummmm, sorry! I’m just a nice person who remembered when she and her dad got matching ukuleles when she was a kid. She remembered this is the song her dad first learned on the ukulele and thought it would be nice to sing to him on his birthday. I don’t want a date. I just want to make my dad smile.

    • i AM the girl

    • uh- if ukulele is such an issue for you- why are you on a ukulele website…?

    • Geez, how’s life working out for you buddy? Had a bad when you wrote this? Don’t worry, when you get older you’ll look back and your problems won’t seem as bad as you think they are now. Next time just try not to bring other people down just because you feel bad, alright?

    • Lailee Maxwell

      and you can?

    • Hope A Howell

      honestly but i know i can’t get the guy

    • Then why are you on this page if you think the uke is for nerds?

  12. ur a nerd
