Take good care of your-self, you be-long to me
Be careful crossing streets, oo oo, don't eat meats, oo oo, cut out sweets, oo
Don't sit on hornets' tails, oo oo, or on nails, oo oo, or third rails, oo

You'll get a pain and ruin your tum tum!
Keep away from bootleg hootch
Don't go out with college boys
when you're on a spree
when you're on a spree

Stars shining bright a-bove you
Birds singing in the sycamore tree
Say “Nightie-night” and kiss me
Night breezes seem to whisper “I love you.”
Dream a little dream of me.
Just hold me tight and tell me you’ll miss me
While I’m alone and blue as can be Dream a little dream of
Stars fading but I linger on, dear
I’m longing to linger ‘til dawn, dear
G R O U P
me.
Still craving your kiss
Just saying this…
Sweet dreams ‘til sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries be-hind you
Dream a Little Dream
But in your dreams what-ever they be Dream a little dream of

But in your dreams what-ever they be Dream a little dream of

So you met someone who set you back on your heels, goody, goody!
So you met someone and now you know how it feels, goody, goody!
So you gave him your heart, too, Just as I gave mine to you.
And you broke it in little pieces, now how do you do?
So you lie awake just singin’ the blues all night, goody, goody!
So you think that love’s a barrel of dynamite.
Hooray and halle-lu-jah! You had it comin’ to ya.
Goody, goody for him.
Goody, goody for me.
And I hope you’re satis-fied, you ras -cal you.

One day took sick and died;
D

And after she was dead, the will, of course, was read,
A7

By a lawyer as we all stood side by side.
To my brother it was found she had left one hundred pound,
The same unto my sister, I declare;
But when it came to me, now the lawyer said, "I see,
She has left you her old armchair."
How they tittered, how they chaffed,
How me brothers and me sisters laughed,
When they heard the lawyer declare,
"Grannie's only left you her old armchair."
I thought it hardly fair but still I didna care,
And in the evening took the chair away;
The neighbours at me laughed and me brother at me chaffed,
And said, "It will be useful some day.
When you settle down in life, find a girl to be your wife,
You'll find it very handy, I declare;
On a cold and frosty night, when the fire burns bright,
You can sit in your old armchair."
My brother's words come true, for within a year or two,
I had settled down in married life;
I first the girl did court and then the ring I bought,
Then I took her to the church tae be my wife.
Oh the old gal and me were as happy as could be,
For when my work was over, I declare,
I was never one to roam, but each night stayed at home,
And was seated in my old armchair.
One night the chair fell down, when I picked it up I found,
The seat had fallen out upon the floor;
And there to my surprise, I saw before me eyes,
A lot of gowd, ten thousand pounds, or more.
When my brother heard of this, the fellow, I confess,
Went nearly wild with rage and tore his hair;
I only laughed at him and said unto him, "Jim,
Don't you wish you had the old armchair?"
How they tittered, how they chaffed,
How me brothers and me sisters laughed,
When they heard the lawyer declare,
"Grannie's only left you her old armchair."
Grannie's only left you her old armchair

Intro: [Em] [B7] [D] [A] [C] [G] [Am] [B7] x 2 (pick Ring on 1, Middle on 2, Index
on 3, x 4 on each chord in sequence)
[Em] On a dark desert highway [B7] cool wind in my hair
[D] Warm smell of colitas [A] rising up through the air
[C] Up ahead in the distance [G] I saw a shimmering light
[Am] My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
[B7] I had to stop for the night
[Em] There she stood in the doorway [B7] I heard the mission bell
[D] And I was thinking to myself this could be [A] heaven or this could be hell
[C] Then she lit up a candle [G] and she showed me the way
[Am] There were voices down the corridor [B7] I thought I heard them say
Chorus : [C] Welcome to the Hotel Cali[G]fornia
Such a [Am] lovely place such a [Em] lovely face
(1) ……...[C] Plenty of room at the Hotel Cali[G]fornia
Any [Am] time of year you can [B7] find it here
(2)……….They [C] livin' it up at the Hotel Cali[G]fornia
What a [Am] nice surprise bring your [B7] alibis
[Em] Her mind is Tiffany twisted [B7] she got the Mercedes bends
[D] She got a lot of pretty pretty boys [A] that she calls friends
[C] How they dance in the courtyard [G] sweet summer sweat
[Am] Some dance to remember [B7] some dance to forget
[Em] So I called up the captain [B7] please bring me my wine
He said [D] we haven't had that spirit here since [A] nineteen sixty-nine
[C] And still those voices are calling from [G] far away
[Am] Wake you up in the middle of the night [B7] just to hear them say
Chorus 2
[Em] Mirrors on the ceiling [B7] the pink champagne on ice
And she said [D] we are all just prisoners here [A] of our own device
[C] And in the master's chambers [G] they gathered for the feast
[Am] They stab it with their steely knives but they [B7] just can't kill the beast
[Em] Last thing I remember I was [B7] running for the door
[D] I had to find the passage back to the [A] place I was before
[C] Relax said the nightman we are [G] programmed to receive
[Am] You can check out anytime you like [B7] but you can never leave
Repeat Chorus 2 and finish on [Em]

[Am] At first I was afraid I was [Dm] petrified
Kept thinkin' [G7] I could never live without you [Cmaj7] by my side
But then I [Fmaj7] spent so many nights thinkin'
[Bm7+5] How you did me wrong
I grew [E7sus4] strong I learned [E7] how to get along
But now you're [Am] back from outer [Dm] space
I just walked [G7] in to find you here
With that sad [Cmaj7] look upon your face
I should have [Fmaj7] changed that stupid lock
I should have [Bm7+5] made you leave your key
If I'd've [E7sus4] known for just one second
You'd be [E7] back to bother me
Chorus:
Go on now [Am] go walk out the [Dm] door
Just turn a[G7]round now 'cause you're not [Cmaj7] welcome anymore
[Fmaj7] Weren't you the one who tried to [Bm7+5] hurt me with goodbye
Did you think I’d [E7sus4] crumble did you think I'd [E7] lay down and die
Oh no not [Am] I I will sur[Dm]vive
Oh as [G7] long as I know how to love I [Cmaj7] know I'll stay alive
I've got [Fmaj7] all my life to live and I've got [Bm7+5] all my love to give
And I'll sur[E7sus4]vive I will sur[E7]vive
I will sur[Am]vive [Dm] [G7] [Cmaj7] [Fmaj7] [Bm7+5] [E7sus4] [E7]

It took [Am] all the strength I had not to [Dm] fall apart
Though I tried [G7] hard to mend the pieces of my [Cmaj7] broken heart
And I spent [Fmaj7] oh so many nights just feeling [Bm7+5] sorry for myself
I used to [E7sus4] cry but now I [E7] hold my head up high
And you see [Am] me somebody [Dm] new
I'm not that [G7] chained up little person still in [Cmaj7] love with you
And so you [Fmaj7] felt like droppin' in and just ex[Bm7+5]pect me to be free
Now I'm [E7sus4] savin' all my lovin' for some[E7]one who's lovin' me

I fell right through the cracks, now I’m tryin to get back

It can not wait. I’m yours

Open up your plans and damn you’re free
Look into your heart and you’ll find love love love love
Listen to the music of the moment maybe sing with me
All a peaceful melody

And it’s our godforsaken right to be loved loved loved loved loved
Chorus
So, I won’t hesitate, no more, no more,
It cannot wait I’m sure, no need to complicate our time is short
This is our fate, I’m yours
I’ve been spendin’ way too long checkin’ my tongue in the mirror
And bendin’ over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass and so I drew a new face and I laughed
I guess what I’d be sayin’ is there ain’t no better reason
To rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons
It’s what we aim to do, our name is our virtue

For I know my love for her will never die;

Genuine, beduine carpet with a pile,
Funny little odds and ends floating down the Nile,
From the old bazaar in Cairo.
You can buy most anything,
Sheeps eyes, sand pies, a watch without a spring,
You can buy a pomegranate too,
A water-bag, a little bit of hokey pokey,
Yashmaks, pontefracts, what a strange affair,
Dark girls, fair girls, some with ginger hair,
The rest of it is funny but they censor it out there,
In the old bazaar in Cairo.

Ironing my goldfish
BEDFORD
The Goodies
U K U L E L E
G R O U P
Lyrics: sung by Tim Chords C F G
Oh oh oh, how I wish, I could buy myself a pet flat fish
But no one wants to sell their sole
A flounder or halibut would be very pally, but
You hardly ever see a skate, that hasn't been mashed on a plate
And so, I'm … ironing my goldfish, ironing my goldfish
A big steam iron on his face, I'll keep on trying 'til I get some plaice
Oh I'm ironing my goldfish, smoothing out his surplus fat
know it's rather cruel but it's oh such fun
ironing my goldfish flat, hey hey, ironing my goldfish flat
I tried to use a rolling pin, he only came out long and thin
Then I thought if he was squeezed beneath
A small elephant a day, he'd look like a manta ray
But I couldn't make my goldfish squash, 'til I put him in with the wash
And now, I'm … ironing my goldfish, ironing my goldfish
And now he's like a tobacco leaf, I wear him in my pocket like a handkerchief
Oh ironing my goldfish, I use him as a table mat
I know it's rather cruel but it's oh such fun
Ironing my goldfish flat, hey hey, ironing my goldfish flat
Ironing My Goldfish

(1) Say, it’s only a paper moon
G R O U P
sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn’t be make believe if you believed in me.
Yes, it’s only a canvas sky
hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn’t be make believe if you believed in me.
Without your love,
it’s a honky-tonk parade.
Without your love,
it’s a melody played in a penny arcade.
It’s a Barnum and Bailey world,
just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn’t be make believe if you believed……...if you believed,

The bowler hat my Grandad left to me
Usually played with uke tuned up one whole tone, A D F B using these chord
shapes (Ithink)!
BEDFORD
[C]Me Grandad was a fine old man, who l[A7]ived to 93
And [D7]in his will he left his favourite [G7]bowler [Dm]hat to [G7]me
[E7]When I go out wearing it, I [Am]feel a [E7]proper [Am]toff
[D7]It’s so snug and comfy I [G7}rarely [Dm]take it [G7]off

In the [C]bowler hat me grandad left to [A7]me
One summers day it was as [D7]warm as can [G7]be
I [E7]went out for a hike, there was [Am]nobo[E7]dy ab[Am]out
I [D7]felt so hot and sticky I [[G7]thought I’d [Dm]cast a [G7]clout
[C]Without a stitch I lay there [A7]lazily
Then [D7]three girl guides dropped down out of a [G7]tree
When I [C]spotted the in[E7]trusion, I [Am]covered my con[Dm]fusion
[G7]With the [C]bowler hat me [G7]grandad left to [C]me
In the bowler hat me grandad left to me
The local club had quite a novelty
A lady did a fan dance and a lot of skin she’d got
When she waved those fans around you couldn’t see a lot
Then she tripped and fell down on one knee
Her fans were lost, it was a mystery
I said “you’ve lost your fan dear, just do the best you can here
With the bowler hat me grandad left to me
In the bowler hat me grandad left to me
I met some friends and we went on a spree
They saw me to the station, I climbed aboard the train
Then I had an experience I never want again
There wasn’t any corridors you see
My journey was from nine o’clock ‘till three
I’d had ten pints of shandy, so one thing came in handy
It was the bowler hat me grandad left to me

In the bowler hat me grandad left to me
I loved May Jane and she loved me
We courted for a while and got married in the June
And when the do was over we went on honeymoon
In bed that night we cuddled tenderly
Then Mary Jane cried out “what can it be”
She said “whats this I’ve got me hand on” I said “ee love its a grand one”
It’s the bowler hat me grandad left to me
Oh yeah it’s the bowler hat me grandad left to me

WHAT A MOUTH
Harry Chanpion/R.P. Weston
Intro:- A / C# / D / A / A / E7 / A / /
[A]Oh, Jimmy Bean was a funny looking fellah
If he had another mouth, he’ed [B7]look much sweller
But his “race” - queered him - from winning a beauty [E7]show
BEDFORD
UKULELE GROUP
[A]It was like a steam boat funnel,
Or a railway arch, or the [B7]Blackwall Tunnel,
When you can't- see Jim - when he opens his mouth, you'll [E7]know.

And as poor [E9]Jim goes [Bm7]wal[Bdim]kin' a [E7]boutYou can 'ear the [E9]kids all [Bm7]'olle[Bdim]rin' [E7]out- WHAT???
SPOKEN: What? Ooh, um....
D
Chorus:
What a [A]mouth, What a mouth,
What a North and South
Blimey, what a [E7]mouth he's [A]got.
When [B7]he was a baby, me lord, gawd luv 'er
Well 'is poor old mother used to [E7]feed 'im with a shovel
What a [A]gap– poor chap– he's [B7]never been known to [E7]laugh
For [A]if he [C#7]did, it's a [D]penny to a [A]quid
That his face would [E7]fall in [A]'alf!

A / C# / D / A / A / E7 / A / /
What A Mouth
[A]Mouth so large, oh Lord! oh Lumme!
He can whisper in his own ear, [B7]ain't it funny?
And to quench his thirst, now he's gotta take a [E7]drink o' mine
[A]He got so drunk one foggy morn
He laid in the road [B7]and he started to yawn
And a poor old man
Was delivering coals close [E7]by
And as he went [E9]to [Bm7]shoot [Bdim]the [E7]load
He saw Jim's [E9]mouth out [Bm7]in [Bdim]the [E7]road
Bm7
Bdim
(What?) SPOKEN: Eh? Ooh, what? Oh, yes....
Chorus:
[A]What a mouth, What a mouth,
What a North and South
Blimey, what a [E7]mouth he's [A]got.
Now [B7]the poor old man bein' a short-sighted fellow
when he saw Jim's mouth, he [E7]took it for the cellar
And he [A]shot - the lot - right into his [B7]mouth, no [E7]joke
Jim [A]poor [C#7]soul's got a [D]belly full of [A]coal
And he coughs up [E7]lumps of [A]coke - OI!

One could not see, one could not walk, but they both were humming this
song
CHORUS:
When you’re smiling, when you’re smiling, the whole world smiles with you.
When you’re laughing, when you’re laughing,
the sun comes shining through.
But when you’re crying, you bring on the rain,
So stop your sighing, be happy again.
Keep on smiling, ‘cause when you’re smiling
The whole world smiles with you!
I used to worry,
(Coda-“The whole world smiles” X3)
I used to hurry each time it started to rain
Now I see light, learned wrong from right and you’ll ne - ver hear me com – plain

I counted out his money and it made a pretty penny,

She sighed, and she swore that she never would deceive me,
But the devil takes the women for they never can be easy.

I went into my chamber all for to take a slumber,
I dreamt of gold and jewels and for sure it was no wonder,
But Jenny drew my charges and she filled them out with water,
Then sent for Captain Farrel, to be ready for the slaughter.

'Twas early in the morning just before I rose to travel,
Up comes a band of footmen and likewise, Captain Farrel,
I first produced my pistol for she stole away my rapier,
But I couldn't shoot the water, so a prisoner I was taken.
If anyone can aid me 'tis my brother in the army,
If I can find his station, in Cork or in Killarney,
And if he'll go with me we'll go roving in Kilkenny,
And I'm sure he'll treat me better than my darling sporting Jenny.

[C]Made up my mind that [G7]I'd get wed some [C] 18 months ago,
When [F]some young girl said, "What about a [D7]walk down by the

I [F]also bought a book about the[D7]things a boy should[G7]know
She [F]said her name was Jen and that she'd [C]just come for the day,
She [D7]looked so young and harmless that I couldn't turn a[G7]way.

It [G7]didn't take him long to get his [C]bag of tools
We [G7]walked along for miles without a [C]single care or frown,
I [D7}held his hat and coat and let him have me book of [G7]rules
But[D7] when we reached the sand dunes, she said, “Come on let’s sit
down." [G7]
[C]Out the bedroom [E7]door he looked and [Am]smiled[C7]
I [C]felt so shy and [E7]bashful sitting [Am]there[C7]
My [C]heart it filled with [E7]joy, I could [A7}see it was a [Dm]boy
Cause the [F]things she said I didn't under[G7]stand
[D7]For he [G7]had a ukulele in his [C]hand
She said, "Y our [C]love just makes me [E7]dizzy [
[E7]Oh [A7]Baby!, [D7]He had a [G7]ukulele in his [C]hand!
