This is an original ukulele song based on the amazing 4th best ukulele strum in the world by COVEYWOOD. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5NieS...
After seeing that video, I wrote this song about a pub in Nottingham that has a "dusty galleon" that one must not clean or that person will die one week after they dust it. I love that story, so I wrote a song about it. Also, Nottingham is only city in England that I have spent most of my time while in England and I bought a ukulele there. I'm playing a custom Brüko 4 soprano ukulele in this video.

Here is the ukulele sheet music if you want to do a cover of it.

Ye Olde Trip To Nottingham

When I visit England, have no time for Big Ben, London Bridge is falling down, heard it's always on the mend
It's a royal pain in London, when I'm squeezed from the Tube
Now all Beefeaters are vegan, and all beer is Belgian brewed

The Tower of London ain't that fun, so I've made other plans
Dust, dust, dust, I must I must, in a pub in Nottingham
A cursed galleon, needs a clean with a pint or two at hand
C'mon mate, and test your fate, at Ye Olde Jerusalem

Don't push your luck, says our good friend Friar Tuck
All are doomed, where the cursed galleon looms...
Robin Hood, sure would, if he could

When I visit England, I will pray at St-Paul's
For a safe pilgrimage, to a pub in castle walls
My mother was a cleaner, sweeping, sweeping was a must
Off to Nottingham, to prove her right, and sweep away some dust
