If I were to pick one of my videos to be featured, it wouldn't have been this one. But, I don't pick em, do i?

I know that many parents are checking out our ukulele videos to see if the instrument is right for their kids to learn. Some kids are already learning the uke and are looking at our music videos. The best thing we can "Play forward" is a healthy love of ukulele playing to our children. I wrote this song with that in mind.
LYRICS:
One morning I clicked on Youtube to get my daily fix
Of ukulele players who upload their latest flicks
When a young girl's performance caught my searching eyes
But the words she sang took me by surprise.
The lyrics were unseemly and her language pretty foul
I couldn't believe I heard these words emanating from her mouth.
I stopped the vid and unsubscribed from all her other flicks
Because ukuleles and foul language do not mix.
CHORUS
Ukuleles and foul language don't mix




It cheapens all your music and makes your viewers sick.
Ukes make people smile! You don't need a bag of tricks
Ukuleles and foul language don't mix.

When I play my ukulele, people pause and turn their heads
Children stop their playing and listen to me instead.
It's like I am this noble instrument's ambassador
The songs I sing shouldn't have language that's poor.

Ukuleles and foul language don't mix
It cheapens all your music and makes your viewers sick.
You set up an example by the things you do and say
Do you really want to be known to folks that way?

BRIDGE:
You don't sing bad words when you're with family (like your Grandma?)
Why would you swear on Youtube, then, where all the world can see?

Ukuleles and foul language don't mix
Dirty words are the aural equivalent of pornographic pics.
Ukes make people smile! You don't need a bag of tricks
Ukuleles and foul language do not mix.

Chords: C, F, G, D, A
