“Too Depressed for the Ukulele” is a depression-crushing ukulele rock anthem featuring a crowd-sourced chorus of ten friends (many from ccMixter!) and three types of ukuleles. I hope you dig it!!

Dedicated to my dear Friends who made this track magical.

The stems are dry when possible.

WORDS
I’m too depressed for the ukulele
Too depressed to hear it play
I’m too depressed for livin’ life today
Its little sound might cheer me up
And I’m way too down for this happy stuff
I’m too depressed for the ukulele today

On most days nothing can get in my way
On most days I am a-okay with just ukulele

CHORUS

You may say HEY baby, just grab your ukulele
You may say HEY kid a little strummin’ would
Do you some good!

CHORUS

It’s gonna be all right
It’s gonna be just fine
I’m gonna turn it all around
Is what I tell myself

CHORUS

So there I went and wrote this song
I’m feeling better, but I’d feel better still
If you’d sing along!

Not too depressed for the ukulele
Not too depressed to hear it play
Not too depressed for living’ life today
Its little sound will cheer us up
That’s why we play this happy stuff
Not too depressed for the ukulele today
