Intro: Csus4

Look at this stuff
Isnt it neat?
Bb                               C
Wouldnt you think my collections complete?
Am                            Dm                G7     G7
Wouldnt you think I'm the girl the girl who has everything.

Look at this trove
Treasures untold
Bb                       C
How many wonders can one cavern hold?
Dm                  Am
Looking around here you think
Dm              G7     G7
Sure, she's got everything

I've got gadgets and gizmos a-plenty
I've got whozits and whatzits galore
You want thingamabobs?
I've got twenty!
But who cares?
No big deal
Csus4   C
I want more

 F                   Am
I wanna be where the people are
Bb            C
I wanna see, wanna see them dancin'
Dm                        Am
Walking around on those - what do you call 'em?
Bb     C
Oh - feet!

F                             Am
Flippin' your fins, you don't get too far
Bb                              C
Legs are required for jumping, dancing
Dm                       Am
Strolling along down a - what's that word again?
Bb          C

  F                     F7
Up where they walk, up where they run
Bb                               Bbm
Up where they stay all day in the sun
         F                    Csus4
Wanderin' free - wish I could be
Part of that world

             Dm              C                 Am       Dm
What would I give if I could live out of these waters?
             Bb               C
What would I pay to spend a day warm on the sand?
           Am             F7
Bet'cha on land they understand
               C                 Am
That they don't reprimand their daughters
             Dm       G7         G7
Bright young women sick of swimmin'
Csus4      C
Ready to stand

 F                         Am
I'm ready to know what the people know
Bb                        C
Ask 'em my questions and get some answers
Dm                Am
What's a fire and why does it - what's the word?
Bb       C

When's it my turn?
F7                 Bb                  Bbm
Wouldn't I love, love to explore that shore up above?
Out of the sea
Wish I could be
F           Fsus4     F  Csus4
Part of that world

  2. I’m self-taught, and I’m still learning the ropes and everything, can someone explain what +2 is?

    • its two steps up from the original chords. It’s like a higher pitch

    • Destinyandchicken

      It just means you’re changing the chords into a different key usually because it’s easier or sounds better. You can change the chords on here by using the transposer at the top of the page and pressing +2. I hope this was helpful Xx

    i would trade out all of my poor unfortunate souls to listen to this song every day :D

  6. Try transposing it to +2. It’s not only easier to play, but it just sounds better in my opinion.

  7. Wow! Thanks, so easy and fun

  8. Grace vanderwall

    Hey this song is alomost as good as my clay song

  9. +2!

  10. maddyjoy2002

    If you go to -5 and capo on the second fret it’s easy to play and at a good octave to sing at

  11. This sound wrong¿?

  12. UkeStar700

    The last “part of that world” sounds better if you play C Bb C F

  13. UkulelePlayingSquid

    it’s a great song otherwise :)

  14. UkulelePlayingSquid

    Love it but I would add some more chords on the section where it goes
    I have gadgets and gizmos a-plenty
    that’s just me because to me it isn’t anough to get through that whole line with that one chord but

  15. Thanks! So useful for my upcoming school talent show! :D

  16. This is really nice. Thanks!!
