And snuggled down into her lap.
Its head on her arm, so quiet and calm
She thought it was taking a nap.
My cousin Hayley stroked the ukulele
When she thought she heard it hum,
It started to sing when she touched its strings
And quite soon, they were having great fun.
My cousin Hayley has a pet ukulele
That she loves with all her heart.
They sing and they play day after day
And we know they’ll never ever part.
