Gb          Ab                    Bbm              Bbm 
Saturday morning jumped out of bed and put on my best suit
Gb          Ab                    Bbm              Bbm 
Got in my car and raced like a jet, all the way to you
Gb          Ab                    Db              Bbm
Knocked on your door with heart in my hand To ask you a question 
Gb          Ab                    Db              Bbm
Cause I know that you're an old fashioned man yeah yeah 

Pre-Chorus:
 Gb                                Ab
Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life? 
     Db/F                  Bbm
say yes, say yes, Cause I need to know 
Gb                                Ab
You say I'll never get your blessings till the day I die 
     Db                    Bbm
Tough luck my friend but the answer is no!

Chorus:
 Gb             Ab          Db              Bbm
Why you gotta be so rude? , Don't you know I'm human too 
Gb             Ab          Db              Bbm

Why you gotta be so rude 

Verse:
Gb          Ab                    Db                Bbm

Gb          Ab                    Db               Bbm

  1. Potato dude

    The strummingggggggg?????

  2. Milxsunshines

    Strum pattern?

  3. +2 is a sounds really good if you have an alto-soprano voice. It’s not too easy for beginners, but pretty easy for people who’ve been playing for a bit.

  4. Wow this song is so cool in ukelele……i highly recommend to choose -6,its a lot easier….peace!

  5. Loco Moko

    +1 sounds the best with the song

  6. sup3rfruitfly

    how do y’all strum this?

  7. This was so easy and sense I don’t know e I couldn’t play the c/e but it still sounded great!!

  8. In the -1 transpose, the C doesn’t sound quite right to me. I play a Cmaj7 instead.

  9. twenty-one_dun_crybabies

    i love this!!!! although i do think it sounds better with -1 and its easier! but good job

  10. -1 so easy and sounds great:)

  11. VeryDogeWow

    Transpose to -1 and substitute the E for an Em! Way easier :)
