#ukulelesongFriday There’s a Hole in the Bottom of the Sea

frog

This is a song that I did a cappella for a while with my felt board set. I guess I thought it would be hard to put the felt pieces on while holding the ukulele at the same time. Then I tried it, and it wasn’t that hard at all. I just stopped playing for a sec, put the new piece on, and continued playing. (I tend to make things more complicated then they really are) I also like to get the kids to guess what’s coming next. “Who remembers what was sitting on the bump on the log?”

It’s a pretty easy felt set to make. The only tricky thing was the frog, and I just googled “cartoon frog” and found one that I liked and copied it. As you can see, it’s not perfect. The hole really isn’t that round and the flea is weird looking, but it’s so small, it’s kind of hard to notice. 🙂

Here are the chords:

G                                    D
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea

D                                                            G
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea

C                                           G
There’s a hole in the sea, there’s a hole in the sea

D                                        G
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea.

G                                                                                 D
There’s a log in the hole in the bottom of the sea

D                                                                               G
There’s a log in the hole in the bottom of the sea

C                                         G
There’s a hole in the sea, there’s a hole in the sea

D                                        G
There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea.

It just goes on like that, adding things (the log, the bump, the frog, the wart, the hair and the flea.)

Here is the video:

I hope someone out there can use it. Happy uking!
