This little songbook is a celebration of the spirit for use by ukulele entertainers and everybody else who wants to feel better in these often sad times of ours. There are no hymns or songs of praise as in a church, but the function is pretty much the same: the use of song to raise you out of yourself and onto another plateau where all is merry and bright. An alternative medicine to pills and the like. I want you to use these songs like friendly weapons. Wield them gaily at gatherings-parties, concerts, restaurants, business meetings, railway stations, airports, political demonstrations. You'll spread happiness, contentment and peace wherever you sing them. If we only had an army of ukesters singing these numbers we could march into any troubles part of the globe and within moments every belligerent would lay down their arms and surrender. Soon all would be joining in the fun. Pull out your ukuleles and follow the dancing print.
