GCEA Revision

Just finished a song with my year 2 (6 year old) ukelele club. The inspiration was to come up with song that teaches the strings on a ukelele G-C-E-A.

I am unashamed to admit verse two contains some heinous ‘rhymes against humanity’ and the tune was heavily ‘influenced’ by They’re Red Hot by Robert Johnson, but hey! It’s Edukationel!

Grandpa can’t eat apples
Because he hasn’t got any teeth
Grandpa can’t eat apples
Because he hasn’t got any teeth
He can eat a peach, he can eat a plum
He just chews em up with his gums, gums, gums
Grandpa can’t eat apples
Because he hasn’t got any teeth

Grandpa can’t eat apples
Because he hasn’t got any teeth
Grandpa can’t eat apples
Because he hasn’t got any teeth
He can eat a melon without the shell on
He can eat a banana – any time he wanna!
Grandpa can’t eat apples
Because he hasn’t got any teeth
