Happy birthday Tom.

Here's that song.

Do Ukuleles go to Heaven When they Die?      

D                A7
I took myself a trip to Honolulu
in the moonlight those ukuleles played
I'm gonna have to buy a ukulele
to serenade my Honolulu maid.

Chorus.
        Oh how I love my ukulele
        it really is the apple of my my eye
        I set it on the chair, guess I shouldn't have left it there
        do ukuleles go to heaven when they die?

Now I'm back in Oklahoma
riding on those old Panhandle plains
My girl she stayed in Honolulu
and I play my ukulele and it rains.

Chorus...

At home alone I play my ukulele
I scare the dog and raise hairs on the cat
I left it on the sofa and my brother my big loafer
came sat on it and squashed that sucker flat.
