I saw this fun version of Build Me Up Buttercup from Julia Nunes earlier:
You might like to check out her YouTube channel, as there’s some good ukulele stuff on there.
Possibly a song to try out on a club night?

I’ve got the tabs for this song in The Most Requested Ukulele Song. It’s a lot of fun to play.

“Possibly a song to try” – oh dear God, no.
Great melody, but the lyrics!!! It’s alternately a stalker and a doormat song. Really: “To you I’m a toy, but I could be the boy you adore, if you just let me know” Stalker!! “I’ll be home, I’ll be beside the phone waiting for you” Doormat!!
Do it in French, it would be less ridiculous.

I’m sure we could do it ironically, with many kazoos & perhaps rewritten lyrics! A lot of fab tunes have really dire lyrics; I can imagine this being done very well with some nice harmonies etc.
