G

Verse 1:
G
Fall is here, hear the yell
G
Back to school, ring the bell
C
Brand new shoes, walking blues
G
Climb the fence, books and pens
D               Cadd9           G
I can tell that we are gonna be friends
D               Cadd9           G
I can tell that we are gonna be friends

Verse 2:
G
Walk with me, Suzy Lee
G
Throught the park and by the tree
C
We will rest upon the ground
G
And look at all the bugs we've found
D                   Cadd9       G
safely walk to school without a sound
D                   Cadd9       G
Safely walk to school without a sound

Verse 3:
G
Well, here we are, no one else
G
We walked to school all by ourselves
C
There's dirt on our uniforms
G
From chasing all the ants and worms
D               Cadd9            G
We clean up and now it's time to learn
D               Cadd9            G
We clean up and now it's time to learn  

Verse 4:
G
Numbers, letters, learn to spell
G
Nouns and books and show and tell
C
At playtime we will throw the ball
G
Back to class, through the hall
D                 Cadd9              G
Teacher marks our height against the wall
D                 Cadd9              G
Teacher marks our height against the wall

Bridge - or whatever -:
C                   G
We don't notice any time pass
C                  G
we don't notice anything
A
We sit side by side in every class
C
Teacher thinks that I sound funny,
D
But she likes the way you sing

Verse 5:
G
Tonight I'll dream, while I'm in bed
G
When silly thoughts go through my head
C
About the bugs and alphabet
G
And when I wake tomorrow I bet
D                   Cadd9         G
That you and i will walk together again
D               Cadd9           G
I can tell that we are gonna be friends
D               Cadd9           G6
I can tell that we are gonna be friends

  1. Strumming pattern?

    • I play DDU UDU but there may be a proper one to play, or you could try that tab at the start all through the song:

      G = ——————
      3———3——
      ——————
      ——0———0

      C (and Caad9) = 3———3——
      ———————
      ———————
      ——0———0

      D = ———————
      2———2——
      ———————
      ——0———0

      I just strum DDU UDU for the bridge but guess you could to the same thing for the bridge as well.

  2. Lol, I like your username

  3. I like to use this pattern instead of what’s given:
    |——–2———-2—–|
    |—————————|
    |—2———————-|
    |————-0————|
    I use this for every chord except for the Cadd9, on that one I do this: (it matches the vocals more)
    |——–3———-3—–|
    |—0———————-|
    |—————————|
    |————-0————|

  4. booksmusicandsarcasm

    i like to pick the a and g string and just ply the chords that are there

  5. Sarah plays ukulele not tragedies

    Total bop!
    A lovely song with excellent composure. On a soprano concert ukulele, I put a capo on first fret and play the chords without transposing them. I have a higher voice, and I really like the way this sounds!

  6. lianacolleen

    i like doing a +5

  7. I find that the living pattern doesn’t sound all too good, so I choose to go
    —2
    —3
    —2
    -0—
    So… It goes g string, all the rest, g string all the rest… And so on.

  8. I took it to -2 and tuned my uke down a step and it sounds great.

  9. Go to -5 but instead of Gadd9 do plain old G. Easier!!

  10. so glad to see some white stripes on here! ^^ sounds perfect as well!
