From the recording My Ukulele (The Naked Sessions)
After 57 first dates in a 2 1/2 year period, I was away at music camp and "discovered" the ukulele. I fell in love. I pretty much decided that the ukulele is better than men. This song is the result.
I was lookin' for a love to call my own,
One that won't leave me hangin' by the phone.
I've been on a lot of dates and I've kissed a lot of frogs
And I've come to the conclusion that most men are dogs.
Finding a good one is something of a fluke,
But I've found a solution: I got me a uk-
u-lele, keeps me up all night
My ukulele makes me feel all right.
My little ukulele never leaves me feeling lonely or sad (so I'm sorry, boys, but)
My ukulele might just be the best love I've ever had!
My ukulele feels so good in my arms
And never gets seduced by other women's charms.
All I have to do is tickle his strings,
And he whispers in my ear the sweetest little things.
And though he doesn't have any hands or a tongue,
When I'm wearing a strap my uke is really well hung!
My ukulele makes me feel so good.
My ukulele's got really nice wood!
My little ukulele never leaves me feeling unsatisfied (how many guys can you say that about?)
My ukulele might just be the best love I've ever tried!
Now it's true my ukulele doesn't drive a nice car,
Never takes me out dancin', or out to a bar,
But that's okay by me, 'cause we do other things.
My ukulele might be small but he can make me sing!
My ukulele knows just how to make me hum,
And if you're a guy, you could learn a lot from...
My ukulele puts a smile on my face.
My ukulele always lets me set the pace.
And though my ukulele's nowhere near as big as my guitar,
We can have a lot more fun in the back of my car!
I think I'll bring my ukulele home to meet my mom and dad,
'Cause my ukulele might just be the best love I've ever had!
