Intro: D  G  Bm  A  D

D                             G
I'm a new soul I came to this strange world hoping I could
Bm                A               D
learn a bit about how to give and take
D                                      G
But since I came here felt the joy and the fear finding myself
Bm           A        D
making every possible mistake
D   G   Bm   A   D
la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la


D                             G
I'm a young soul in this very strange world hoping I could
Bm                     A           D
learn a bit about what is true and fake.
D                                          G
But why all this hate? Try to   com - mun- icate finding just that
Bm             A            D
love is not al-ways easy to make.
D   G   Bm   A   D
la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

Bridge: D   G   Bm  A  D

D                                    G
This is a happy end cause' you don't under - stand everything
Bm                    A             D
you have done - why's everything so wrong
D                                    G
This is a happy end come and give me your hand I'll take
Bm   A  D
you far away
D   G   Bm   A   D
la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la


D                             G
I'm a new soul I came to this strange world hoping I could
Bm                A               D
learn a bit about how to give and take
D                                      G
but since I came here felt the joy and the fear find-ing myself
Bm            A          D
making every  possible   mistake
D   G   Bm   A   D
la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la


D   G   Bm   A   D
la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

  1. Does anyone know what the strumming pattern is?

  2. Susan Irie

    Any advice on printer margins? Having issues with the left margin being cut off. Thank you for this great song!

  3. Kwolftribe

    I love this song! Thank you for putting it up!❤️❤️❤️

  4. Marissa L.

    I love thissss song. Usually I do like 1 strum to make it more dramatic towards the ending chorus then repeat with several strums.

  5. TwiceTrash

    I have a few strumming patterns I’m using, it’s a bit complicated but feel free to change it to your liking.
    (First verse)
    DDUD (Cut the G short and do DD for C do UD)
    (Second verse)
    DDDUD for C, DDUD for F,DD for am, D for G, and D or UD for C.

    I’m still not sure what strumming method to use for the bridge and lalalala part, other than that you could probably repeat these methods over the parts that use the same chord pattern.

  6. TwiceTrash

    I’m using DDUD as my strum pattern, I suggest listening to the song, and figuring out a strum latter that works for you.

  7. Whats the strum pattern

  8. Me maybe DDU for the first part???

  9. How do i know what strumming pattern to use?

      You just have to listen to the song and figure it out. (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.) Sorry. Strum on! (=

  10. I didn’t think anyone knew about Yael Naim but I’m so glad some do! The lyrics are so happy-go-lucky and perfect for a ukulele!

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.
