Maybe she'll sigh (an awful lot) Maybe she'll cry (and maybe not) Maybe she'll find somebody else By and by To sing to when it's cool and shady Where the tricky wicky wacky woo If you like Ukulele Lady Ukulele Lady like a'you ****** As recorded by BETTE MIDLER: I saw the splendour of the moonlight On Honolulu Bay There's something tender in the moonlight On Honolulu Bay And all the beaches are filled with peaches Who bring their ukes along And in the glimmer of the moonlight They love to sing this song If you like Ukulele Lady Ukulele Lady like a'you If you wanna linger where it's shady Ukulele Lady linger too If you kiss Ukulele Lady While you promise ever to be true And she see another Ukulele Lady fool around with you Maybe she'll sigh Maybe she'll cry Maybe she'll find somebody else By and by To sing to when it's cool and shady Where the tricky wicky wackers woo If you like Ukulele Lady Ukulele Lady like a'you (Instrumental Break) Some day I'm going where eyes are glowing And lips were made to kiss To see somebody in the moonlight And hear the songs I miss If you like Ukulele Lady Ukulele Lady like a'you-you-you If you want to linger where it's shady Ukulele Lady linger too If you kiss Ukulele Lady While you promise ever to be true-true-true And she see another ukulele Lady fool around with you Well, maybe she will sigh Maybe she will cry Ah, but maybe she will find somebody else By and by To sing to when it's cool and shady Where the tricky wicky wackers woo-woo-woo If you like Ukulele Lady Ukulele Lady like a'you, like a'me, like I like a'you And we like a'both the same I like to say this very day Ukelele lady like a'yo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ooh (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - Nov 2008) ****** UKELELE LADY as recorded by Lee Morse & her Blue Grass Boys May 1925 New York I saw the splendour of the moonlight On Honolulu bay; There's something tender in the moonlight On Honolulu bay! And all the beaches are full of peaches Who bring their ukes along, And in the glimmer of the moonlight, They love to sing this song; If you like a ukelele lady, Ukelele lady like-a you! You like to linger where it's shady, A ukelele lady linger too. If you kiss a ukelele lady, While you promise ever to be true, And she sees another ukelele Lady fool around with you! Maybe she'll sigh, Maybe she'll cry, Maybe she'll find someone else, By and by! To sing to when it's cool and shady, Where the wicky wackies woo, If you like a ukelele lady, A ukelele lady like-a you! A ukelele lady don't know how to bake a cake, A ukelele lady don't know how to make a cake, But in the moonlight every night, she gives the boys a break, When she plays the ukelele and she does a wicked shake! (yodelling) To sing to when it's cool and shady, Where the wicky wackies woo, If you like a ukelele lady, A ukelele lady like-a you-hoo! (Contributed by Peter Akers - January 2013)
