Ukulele is the New Black
Song by Meredith Harper
I wanted to play an instrument
Cos musicians are so cool and I wanted to be cool
But I found that playing an instrument is kinda hard
I tried the harmonica but I really sucked
I tried the guitar but my fingers couldn’t do it
I was ready to give up…
Then I saw a little instrument in the shop

And who knew? Ukulele is the new black
Yeah it’s the new black
Everybody’s playing it……..cos it’s the new black
