Ukulele Lady
(Gus Kahn & Richard A. Whiting)

I saw the splendor of the moonlight
On Bay
There's something tender in the moonlight
On 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;

cho: If you like a Ukulele Lady
     Ukulele Lady like-a-you
     If you like to linger where it's shady
     Ukulele Lady linger too
     If you kiss a 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, Bye and bye..
     To sing to, when it's cool and shady
     Where the tricky Wickie Wackies woo
     If you like a Ukulele Lady
     Ukulele Lady like-a-you.

She used to sing to me by moonlight
On Bay
Fond mem'rys cling to me by moonlight
Although I'm far away
Someday I'm going
Where eyes are glowing
And lips are made to kiss
To see somebody in the moonlight
And hear the song I miss.

Recorded in late '60's by The Jim Kweskin Jug Band
