Intro:
CC chord FF chord GG chord FF chord

Verse 1:
           CC chord          FF chord                GG chord               FF chord
Oh well in five years time we could be walking round a zoo 
         CC chord           FF chord         GG chord      FF chord
With the sun shining down over me and you 
                CC chord           FF chord             GG chord         FF chord
And there'll be love in the bodies of the elephants too 
                CC chord           FF chord             GG chord           FF chord
And I'll put my hands over your eyes, but you'll peep through 


Chorus:
                CC chord       FF chord
And there'll be sun sun sun 
GG chord            FF chord
All over our bodies 
    CC chord       FF chord
And sun sun sun 
GG chord            FF chord
All down our necks
    CC chord       FF chord
And sun sun sun 
GG chord            FF chord
All over our faces 
    CC chord       FF chord
And sun sun sun 
GG chord           FF chord
So what the heck 

Verse 2:

Cause I'll be laughing at all your silly little jokes 
And we'll be laughing about how we used to smoke 
All those stupid little cigarettes 
And drink stupid wine 
Cause it's what we needed to have a good time 

Chorus:

And it was fun fun fun 
When we were drinking 
It was fun fun fun 
When we were drunk 
And it was fun fun fun 
When we were laughing 
It was fun fun fun 
Oh it was fun 

Verse 3:

Oh well I look at you and say 
It's the happiest that I've ever been 
And I'll say I no longer feel I have to be James Dean 
And she'll say 
Yah well I feel all pretty happy too 
And I'm always pretty happy when I'm just kicking back with you 

Chorus:

And there'll be 
Love love love 
All through our bodies 
And love love love 
All through our minds 
And there'll be Love love love 
All over her face 
And Love love love 
All over mine 

Verse 4:

Although maybe all these moments are just in my head 
I'll be thinking about them as I'm lying in bed 
And all that I believe might never really come true 
But in my mind I'm having a pretty good time with you 

Chorus:

Oh 
Five years time 
I might not know you 
Five years time 
We might not speak 
Oh 
In five years time 
We might not get along 
In five years time 
You might just prove me wrong 

Oh there'll be love love love 
Wherever you go 
There'll be love love love 
Wherever you go 
There'll be love love love 
Wherever you go 
There'll be love love love 
Wherever you go 
There'll be love love love 
Wherever you go 
There'll be love love love 
Wherever you go 
There'll be love love love 
Wherever you go there'll be love

  1. The chords match up the exact same u idiots

  2. Hey anyone know the correct strumming pattern I’m doing down down slap down up down.

    • A helping hand

      Check out this video for a nice sounding strum, but I can’t figure out how to chuck so I just go (C)down down up (F)down down up (G) down down up (F) down down up for a slower, easier rhythm. Hope this helps!

    • d u x u d u x u, if you go to this page ( https://ukuguides.com/guides/ultimate-ukulele-strumming-tips-and-guide/) it has a little video recording!

  3. Please put the chords the whole way through. I never know when to play them otherwise

  4. Ukulele Forensicator

    You know, while we’re at it, does anyone know where I can purchase 42,000 fake candles at once?

    • isaac uketon

  5. Fantastic song! Thanks for the chords and stuff. Very helpful ^_^

  6. Either way, it would be helpful to put the chords up for the whole song!

  7. sasha.weaver

    :)

  8. It doesn’t change at all, guys. It’s literally C F G F the ENTIRE way through the song. Stick it on a piece of paper and just keep playing it.

  9. i also agree memory chords all way through please change it gets confused change quick

  10. TheUkeleleClub

    i agree with alec north, i have a forgetfull memory, so it would be handy to have the chords all the way through. Thankies x

  11. Is there anyway that you could write out the chords all the way through the verses. They definitely change due to syllable changes and such. Thanks!
