…another ukulele love song for the “Love Songs For Everyone But Especially Uke” album. It’s comin’ right along! In fact, I just released “Start Each Day with Love” as a single last week. (The wonderful KungFu did the cover art!) :D Whoop!

Okay, so this is one of those songs that gets faster and faster at the end (I always wanted to write one like that). So next to the lyrics below, I label how and where the bpm changes from 140 bpm up to 180 bpm. (It stays on 140 until that very end part that is labeled.) I also included a horrible beat track that I used as a guide while playing the time changes. The vox and uke are dry in the zip. I included an effected whistle snippet. I hope you dig!!!

Verse and Chorus: G-G7-C-C7
Bridge: F-A-Dm-C7

The most generic thing
I could say to you
Don’t mean a thing
Without the feelings between us two

I love you
I love you

The most over-used
Over-hyped three words
Seems like everyone I ever met
Just really wish they heard

I love you
We wanna hear- I love you

We can’t get enough
Of this lovey, dovey, dove
Every movie and TV show
Regurgitates what we want

They’re sayin’ – I love you
Change the channel – I love you

Kittens and puppies
Birdies and monkeys
Don’t need verbal language
To say how much the love ya’

Meow, meow, meow, woof, woof
(Whistle) ooo, ooo, ooo

I’ll keep sayin’ it
Again and again
And then I’ll keep sayin’ it
Until my life ends
Redundant for sure
Uninventive perhaps
If I vowed to discontinue
I’d most certainly relapse

I love you
I love you

A little bit faster now
(150 bpm) I love you
Faster still
(155 bpm) I love you
Now like lightening baby
(160 bpm) I love you
Faster than the speed of light
(165 bpm) I love you
(170 bpm) I love you X4
(175 bpm) I love you X4
(180 bpm) I love you X4

(Ending at 140 bpm)
The most generic thing
I could say to you
Don’t mean a thing
Without the feelings between us two.
