Intro: picking around Cm Eb Abmaj7 Cm

Cm                      Eb
Jumping up and down the floor
   Eb          Abmaj7
My head is an animal
    Cm                    Eb
And once there was an animal
Eb                           Abmaj7
It had a son that mowed the lawn
    Cm             Eb
The son was an ok guy
Eb                    Abmaj7
Thay had a pet dragonfly
    Cm                 Eb
The dragonfly it ran away
Eb                                Abmaj7
But it came back with a story to say

Cm, Eb, Abmaj7
Hey!
Cm, Eb, Abmaj7
Hey!

    Cm                   Eb
Her dirty paws and furry coat
                        Abmaj7
She ran down the forest slope
    Cm                  Eb
The forest of talking trees
                                          Abmaj7
They used to sing about the birds and the bees
    Cm                  Eb
The bees had declared a war
                                  Abmaj7
The sky wasn't be enough for them all
    Cm                         Eb
The birds they got help from below
                                     Abmaj7
From dirty paws and the creatures of snow

Hey!

Hey!

    Cm                       Eb
And for a while things were cold
                               Abmaj7
They were scared down in their holes
    Cm                   Eb
The forest that once was green
                                     Abmaj7
Was colored black by those killing machines
    Cm                   Eb
But she and her furry friends
                                Abmaj7
Took down the queen bee and her men
    Cm                    Eb
And that's how the story goes
                                             Abmaj7
The story of the beast with those four dirty paws

  1. if you’re having trouble with Abmaj7
    try
    1st finger ~ 3rd fret ~ Eb string
    2nd finger ~ 3rd fret ~ Bb string
    3rd finger ~ 4th fret ~ G string lol
    also to remember the strings i made a mnemonic
    *G*iraffes
    *E*at *f*rom
    *G*reat
    *B*ig *b*owls

  2. Morningstar66

    Plzs I need to know a an easier way

  3. Morningstar66

    Some help me i need to know an easier way

  4. blxrryface

    I find that an Ab (G#) works best instead of an Abmaj7. :)

  5. Ukumaster123

    I’m so mad at myself right now I went to England for easter and FORGOT TO BRING MY UKULELE!!! D:

  6. I was trying to find the intro solo too. Can you help me?

  7. michael bischoff

    I have been trying to find the solo in the beginning of the song on ukulele and I cant find it can you help me find the finger picking part of this song?

  8. If you transpose don 3 half steps then it’s easier, and you can replace Fmaj7 with F and it should sound fine.

  9. Cheesegirl

    and if the Fmaj7 is to hard to play just play a F

    • ukes not nukes

      Yes, sometimes I play F but also it works if you just take off the last finger on the Fmaj7. Hope this helps! :D

  10. Cheesegirl

    hi doctorwho,
    a way easier version to play this is if you transpose it to -3,
    hope this helped!

  11. DoctorWho

    Is there any way to make this song easier to play? I find it to hard…

  12. TheLocalDreamer

    Wowsers… No need to get your tuning keys in a twist…

  13. Patrick Star

    It doesn’t sound right at all to me.
