A Day in the Life of a Fool

A [Am] day in the [Bm7b5] life [E7] of a [Am] fool [Bm7b5-E7]
A [Am] sad and a [Dm7] long [G7] lonely [CM7] day [A7b9]

I walk the [Dm7] avenue [G7]
Hoping I’ll [CM7] run into [FM7]
The welcome [Bm7b5] sight of you [E7]
Coming my [Am] way … [ Bm7b5-E7 ]

I [Am] stop just a – [Bm7b5] cross [E7] from your [Am] door [Bm7b5-E7]
But [Em7b5] you’re never [A7b9] home any [Dm] more

So [Dm-Dm7] back to my [E7] room
And [Am-Am7] there in the [FM7] gloom
I [E7+] cry [E7] tears of goodbye…

[ Am – Am – Bm7b5 – E7 ]

 

Bamboleo

Ese a – [Am] mor llega a- [E7] si esta ma- [Am] nera
No tiene la [E7] culpa
[E7] Caballo de danza vana, porque es muy despreciado, por eso
No te per- [Am] dona llorar

Ese a – [Am] mor llega a- [E7] si esta ma- [Am] nera
No tiene la [E7] culpa
[E7] Amor de compra y venta, amor del en el pasado
Bem, bem bem bem, bem bem bem…

[ Am4 – Dm4 – E74 – Am4 ]
Bamboleo, bambolea
Porque mi vida, yo la prefiero vivir asi
Bamboleo, bambolea
Porque mi vida, yo la prefiero vivir asi

 

Banana Pancakes

verse loop [ E2 – D#m7b52 – A62 – A72 ]
chorus loop [ F#m4 – F#m4 – E4 – E4 ]

You hardly even notice, when I try to show you
Song is meant to keep you, doin’ what you’re supposed to
Wakin’ up too early, maybe we could sleep in
Make you banana pancakes, pretend like it’s the weekend

Now, we could pretend it all the time
Can’t you see that it’s just rainin’…
There ain’t no need to go outside … but just maybe

Laka ukulele, mama made a baby
Really don’t mind the practice, cause you’re my little lady
Lady, lady love me ’cause I, love to lay here lazy
We could close the curtains, pretend like there’s no world

Outside, we could pretend it all the time
Can’t you see that it’s just rainin’…
There ain’t no need to go outside …, but just maybe

Bare Necessities

(Look for the) [C] bare ne- [C7] cessities
The [F6] simple bare ne- [Fm6] cessities
For- [C] get about your [A7] worries and your
[Dm] Strife [G7…]
(I mean the) [C6] bare ne- [C13] cessities
Old [F6] Mother Nature’s [Fm6] recipes
That [C!] bring the [A7!] bare ne- [D9] cessi- [G7] ties of
[C] Life [break]

Wherever I [G7] wander, wherever I [C] roam
I couldn’t be [G7] fonder of my big [C] home [C7]
The bees are [F] buzzin’ in the [G] tree
To make some [C] honey just for [Am] me
When you [A7] look under the [Ab7] rocks and plants
And [G7] take a glance at the [Gb7] fancy ants
Then [F7] maybe try a [A7] few (yuck!) [pause]

The bare ne- [F] cessities of [G6] life will come to [C] you
[G7] They’ll come to [C] you!

[chorus]

Now when you pick a [G7] pawpaw, or a prickly [C] pear
And you prick a [G7] raw paw, next time be- [C] ware [C7]
Don’t pick the [F] prickly pear by the [G] paw
When you pick a [C] pear, try to use the [Am] claw
But [A7] you don’t need to [Ab7] use the claw
When you [G7] pick a pair of the [Gb7] big pawpaw
Have I [F7] given you a [A7] clue?

The bare ne- [F] cessities of [G6] life will come to [C] you
[G7] They’ll come to [C] you!

[chorus]

Never knew this thrill before
Whoever thought I’d be holding you close to me
Whispering it’s you I adore

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Chord pattern for song: [ C4 – G4 – F4 – C4 ]

Here’s a little song I wrote, you might want to sing it note for note
Don’t worry, be happy
In every life we have some trouble, and when you worry you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy

Ooh, ooh, ooh…
Don’t worry (don’t worry), be happy (be happy)

Ain’t got no place to lay your head, somebody came and took your bed
Don’t worry, be happy
The landlord say your rent is late, he may have to litigate
Don’t worry, be happy

[chorus]

Ain’t got no cash, ain’t got no style, ain’t got no gal, to make you smile
Don’t worry, be happy
‘Cause when you worry, your face will frown, and that will bring everybody down so
Don’t worry, be happy

So I sent him to ask of the Owl if he’s there
How to loosen a jar from the nose of a bear

Now I’m the king of the swingers, oh, the jungle VIP

And be just like the other men, I’m tired of monkeying around

Can learn to be, hu-u-man too

Now don’t try to kid me, man-cub, I made a deal with you
What I desire is man’s red fire, to make my dream’s come true
Now give me the secret, man-cub (come on), clue me what to do
Give me the power of man’s red flower, so I can be just like you

I’m a Believer

[ D2 – A1 – C1 – D2 – (n/c)2 ]
I thought love was only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else but not for me

Love was out to get me
That’s the way it seemed
Disappointment haunted all my

Dreams…

[ D2 – G2 ]
Then I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace, of doubt in my mind
I’m in love, I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I
[A7]
[(n/c)] Tried… [riff]

I thought love was more or less a giving thing
The more I gave the less I got oh yeah
What’s the use in tryin’
All you get is pain
When I wanted sunshine I got
Rain…
[chorus]

Jamaica Farewell

[ C2 – F2 – G72 – C2 ]

Down the way, where the nights are gay
And the sun shines daily on the mountaintop
I took a trip on a sailing ship
And when I reached Jamaica I made a stop

But I’m sad to say I’m on my way
Won’t be back for many a day
My heart is down, my head is turning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town

[repeat chorus]

Sounds of laughter everywhere
And the dancing girls swing to and fro
I must declare my heart is there
Though I’ve been from Maine to Mexico

But I’m sad to say I’m on my way… [x2]

Down at the market you can hear
Ladies cry out while on their heads they bear
Ackee, rice, salt, fish are nice
And the rum is fine any time o’ year

But I’m sad to say I’m on my way… [x2]

Jammin’

Cause every day we pay the price, with a little sacrifice
Jammin’ till the jam is through

We’re jammin’

We’re jammin’
I want to jam it with you
We’re jammin’, jammin’, jammin’, jammin’
And I hope you’re jammin’, too

We’re jammin’, jammin’, jammin’, jammin’
I want to jam it with you
We’re jammin’, we’re jammin’, we’re jammin’, we’re jammin’
Hope you like jammin’, too

Lazy Song

Chord pattern for 4-chord looping jam [ C2 – G2 – F2 – n/c ]

Today I don’t feel like doing anything
I just wanna lay in my bed
Don’t feel like picking up my phone, so leave a message at the tone
‘Cause today I swear I’m not doing anything

Nothing at all…, nothing at all…, nothing at all…, nothing at all…

Today I don’t feel like doing anything
I just wanna lay in my bed
Don’t feel like picking up my mess, I don’t like work, I don’t like stress
Today I swear I’m not doing anything

Nothing at all…, nothing at all…, nothing at all…, nothing at all…

Today I don’t feel like doing anything
I just wanna lay in my bed
Don’t feel like picking up my bones, I feel just like a sack of stones
Today I swear I’m not doing anything

Nothing at all…, nothing at all…, nothing at all…, nothing at all…

Margaritaville

verse [ C12 – G12 – G74 – C4 ]
chorus [ F2 – G72 – C2 – C2 ]

Nibblin’ on sponge cake, watchin’ the sun bake
All of those tourists covered with oil
Strummin’ my six string, on my front porch swing
Smell those shrimp they’re beginning to boil

Wastin’ away again in Margaritaville
Searchin’ for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there’s a woman to blame
But I know, oh it’s nobody’s fault

Don’t know the reason, stayed here all season
With nothin’ to show but this brand new tattoo
But it’s a real beauty, a Mexican cutie
How it got here I haven’t a clue

Wastin’ away again in Margaritaville…

Blew out my flip flop, stepped on a pop top
Cut my heal had to cruise on back home
But there’s booze in the blender, and soon it will render
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on

Wastin’ away again in Margaritaville…

Marianne

[ D4 – Em4 – A74 – D4 ]

All day all night, Marianne
Down by de seaside, siftin’ sand

Down by de seaside siftin’ sand

Oh Marianne please talk to me
Marianne won’t you walk with me
Marianne, Marianne will you sing for me
Marianne, Marianne dance with me

[chorus]

Oh Marianne, Marianne please won’t you say
How you be livin’ dis beautiful way
Oh Marianne, Marianne please won’t you tell
How you be livin’ so happy, so well

(she say) Master your breath, eat de right food
Walk to feel better, ride for good mood
Listen to others, learn things each day
Connect with your world, give some things away
Learn to be still, and quiet your mind
Choose to live simply and joy you shall find

[chorus]

Someday

Chord pattern for soloing [ C – Dm7 – Em – FM6 ]

verse loop [ C4 – Dm74 ]
chorus loop [ FM74 – Em4 – Dm74 – G4 ]

Someday, when my life has passed me by
I’ll lay around and wonder why you were always there for me
One way, in the eyes of a passerby
I’ll look around for another try, and fade away

Just close your eyes and I’ll take you there
This place is warm, without a care
We’ll take a swim in the deep blue sea
I go to leave and you reach for me

Some say better things will come my way
No matter what they try to say you were always there for me
Some way, when the sun begins to shine
I hear a song from another time and fade away

[chorus]

Sunday Morning

[ Em72 – A72 – DM72 – DM72 ]

Sunday morning, rain is falling
Steal some covers, share some skin
Clouds are shrouding us in moments unforgettable
You twist to fit the mold that I am in

But things just get so crazy, living life gets hard to do
And I would gladly hit the road, get up and go if I knew
That someday it would lead me back to you
That someday it would lead me back to you

That may be all I need
In darkness she is all I see
Come and rest your bones with me
Sunday Morning and I never want to leave

Fingers trace your every outline
Paint a picture with my hands
Back and forth we sway like branches in a storm
Change the weather, still together when it ends

That may be all I need
In darkness she is all I see
Come and rest your bones with me
Sunday Morning and I never want to leave

They forget, this world keeps spinning and with
Each new day, I can feel a change in everything

And as the surface breaks reflections fade
But in some ways they remain the same
And as my mind begins to spread it’s wings
There’s no stopping curiosity, I want to turn the whole thing

Upside down, find the things they say just
Can’t be found, share this love I find with
Everyone, we’ll sing and dance to Mother
Nature’s songs, I don’t want this feeling to go away

Who’s to say, I can’t do everything, well
I can try, and as I roll along I
Begin to find, things aren’t always what they
Seem to be, I want to turn the whole thing

Upside down, find the things they say just
Can’t be found, share this love I find with
Everyone, we’ll sing and dance to Mother
Nature’s songs, I don’t want this feeling to go away

Waiting In Vain

[ DM74 – GM74 – F#m4 – A7sus4 ]
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love
I don’t wanna wait in vain…

[ D4 – Em4 – F#m4 – Em4 ]
From the very first time I blessed my eyes on you, girl
My heart say follow through
But I know, now, that I’m way down on your line
But the waitin’ feel is fine

Don’t treat me like no puppet on a string
‘Cause I know how to do my thing
Don’t talk to me as if you think I’m dumb
I wanna know when you gonna come

I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love
I don’t wanna wait in vain…

It’s three years since I’m knockin’ on your door
And I still can knock some more
Ooh girl, Ooh girl is it feasible
I wanna know now, for I to knock some more

You see, in life I know there’s a lot of grief
But your love is my relief
Tears in my eyes burn, tears in my eyes burn
While I waiting, while I’m waiting for my turn

I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love
I don’t wanna wait in vain…

Wonderful World

[ C4 – G4 – Am4 – F4 ]

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom, for me and for you
And I think to myself…
What a wonderful world

I see skies of blue, and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself…
What a wonderful world

The colors of a rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces, of people walking by
I see friends shaking hands, sayin’ “How do you do?”
They’re really sayin’, “I love you” …

I hear babies cry I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more, than I’ll ever know
And I think to myself…
What a wonderful world
