Put a smile on the face of everyone when I play

I don’t need twelve drummers banging on drums
   G
Or eleven pipers piping for me
           Dbdim
I’m sure a partridge in a pear tree is a lot of fun
         D            Dmaj7             D7                    -nc-
But I’ll be a leaping lord if you would just get me…a ukulele…
                     G              Gmaj7
And I…I’ll ha…have a…   ukulele for Christmas
          G7                       C
And maybe I can write a song of my own
      Cm                        G          E7
Put a smile on the face of everyone when I play
       Dbdim         D7          Em
The ukulele that I’m getting for Christmas

For Christmas, oh, that’s all I really need


          C             Cm
So if you wanna make me jolly

All you gotta do is give me

Just a little ukulele for Christmas

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
