Hi friends!

It’s been a long while since I’ve done one of these, mainly because I had already shared all of the songs I regularly use for my story times. However, I’ve been on the hunt lately, and I’ve discovered a few that I’m pretty excited to share.

This one is by a band that plays pop punk songs for kids called Sparrow Sleeps. As soon as I heard it, I immediately imagined my preschoolers and kindergartners flailing around playing their air guitars.

Here is a video of me playing it on the ukulele.

And here are the chords.

G                  C         D
Air guitar, air guitar

Em7                     D                         G D C D
Man, I love to play the air guitar

Em7                                          D               C
I wiggle my fingers and I swing my arms

C             D                        G
When I play the air guitar

Em7 C D C D      Em7  D

G                    C      D
Air guitar, air guitar

Em7                     D                       G D C D
Man, I love to play the air guitar

Em7                                       D          C
I jump all around and I flail my arms

C              D                        G
When I play the air guitar

Em7 C D C D      Em7  D

G                    C     D
Air guitar, air guitar

Em7                         D             G
Man, I love to play the air guitar

G                      C        D
Air guitar, air guitar

Em7                   D                       G
Man, I love to play the air guitar

That’s it! We’ve had a lot of fun with this song this week. I hope some of you can use it, too!

For those of you that prefer to play a recording for your story times, here is the original song. You can just hit play and let your story timers go wild.
