Lyrics >>

ALOHA! (ALOHA!)
(SOLO) Here come the Ukularmy marching through your door
We can play so many chords but this verse takes just four!

Come join the Ukularmy come and strum along
You can learn to play like us or simply march along!

(ALL) Come join today come learn the Ukie way!
“G” “C” “E” “A”

Here come the Ukularmy marching through your door
We can play so many chords, but this verse takes just four!

Come join the Ukularmy come and strum along
You can learn to play like us or simply march along!

We’re the Army, Ukularmy
With our weapons of wood and string
Ukularmy from Hawaii
They call us the “jumping flea”
No, we’re not George Formby’s banjo and we don’t like cleaning windows
Uke is the one for me!

ALOHA! (ALOHA!)
ALOHA! (ALOHA!)

We’re the Army, Ukularmy
With our weapons of wood and string
Ukularmy from Hawaii
They call us the “jumping flea”
No, we’re not George Formby’s banjo and we don’t like cleaning windows
Uke is the one for, the one we long for, Uke is the one for me!


Teaching Notes  >>

A special ‘Ukularmy’ Sergeant Major can be allocated who will lead the troop and shout ‘Aloha’ at specific times for his troops to repeat. At the end of the song, the entire ensemble marches around the room to the chorus, doing the actions as they go. At the end the Sergeant Major shouts ‘Ukularmy dismissed’ and everyone returns to their seats and puts their ukuleles away.
