This is a song I wrote in response to the trend of girls learning a few ukulele chords and cranking out videos of themselves playing. I actually like most of these videos, but I thought they deserved to be parodied. Also I learned how to play the ukulele for this song, so if it sounds extremely basic, that's because it is!

Filmed by Josh Edelman
Written and Performed by Robin Higgins

[F]As soon as this song [Fm]started,
[F]there was something in the [Fm] air
[C]hard to de[F]fine,
but [D7]definitely [G]there,

I know you want to watch me,
I know you want to see
cuz I've discovered a formula,
for likeability

Chorus I
[C]I'm a cute girl with a ukulele,
[D7]saw it one day and it shouted play me,
[F]There's something about this [A7] combo I like,
[C]Brown hair, [G]four strings, [C]seemed just right

Verse I
[F]I'm a recipe for adorableness
I'm a packet of quirky fun
[C]Just artsy enough to [F]be interesting
[D7]but not off-putting to [G]anyone

[F]Slightly sexual, simply adorkable.
I love to bake dinosaur shaped pie,
[C]I'll tell you that I [F]am a nerd,
though [D7]we both know that [G]is a lie

Chorus II
I'm a cute girl with a ukulele,
And I have a wish that one day maybe,
The children of Earth will come together and say,
that I looked really hip and edgy today

Verse II
my bangs are more intense than yours
actually they kinda mess up my vision,
now when I really think about it
they're responsible for several major collisions,

you're wondering how I found this way
to make everyone have the same view
of me being so darn likeable
well here I'll explain it to you...

Middle 8
[G] Am I really that cute doesn't matter playing ukulele
am I good at music? Doesn't matter cuz I'm kinda cute

[G] I have invisibility
[C] against mediocrity
[G]because this combo is so charming,
[C]that its actually alarming

Chorus III
I'm a cute girl with a ukulele,
I'm so cute I call downtown va-ja-jay
I have a non-threatening persona so I seem nice,
But if I meet you in person, I'll be like ice

Chorus IV
I'm a cute girl with a ukulele,
and I'm just getting cuter by the daily,
Crafting, farmers market, sock puppet show,
Velma not Daphne, quoting Thoreau

Because society has a lot of gender inequality problems, and a manic pixie dreamgirl persona is more appealing than a real human being... so remember

[C]I'm just a cute girl with a ukulele,
[D7]saw it one day and it shouted play me,
[F]There's something about this [A7] combo I like,
[C]Brown hair, [G]four strings, [C]seemed just right
