Iron Uke

You asked for it, you got it – more Elly and Herbert shtick.  But this time, I have wicked allergies so I sound like Kathleen Turner after a case of unfiltered cigs.  Also, if you guys could remind me not to pick ridiculously high songs in the future, I’d much appreciate it.

Would Cat Stevens…er…I mean Yusuf Islam…not be the coolest possible vattoo ever?  I wonder if I can train my kayak to play the uke.  Now THAT would be an interesting series of videos, eh?

I should stop typing now.

Oh and Kelly, there’s a special present for you in that there video…

Since I mumble, here are the lyrics.  They make me feel all warm and squishy inside.

Well if you want to sing out, sing out.
And if you want to be free, be free.
‘Cause there’s a million things to be.
You know that there are.

And if you want to live high ,live high.
And if you want to live low, live low.
‘Cause there’s a million ways to go.
You know that there are.

You can do what you want.
The opportunity’s on.
And if you find a new way
you can do it today.
You can make it all true.
And you can make it undo
you see.

It’s easy.
You only need to know.

Well if you want to say yes, say yes.
And if you want to say no, say no.
Cause there’s a million ways to go.
You know that there are.

And if you want to be me, be me.
And if you want to be you, be you.
Cause thee’s a million things to do.
You know that there are.


  1. Hahahaha, dude. That is so awesome as always. I particularly enjoyed your facial expressions with that fab chord change in the middle and that exquisite big finish. 🙂

    You do have a lovely voice though. I hate that I can’t even say anything sarcastic about it, it really is pure LIKE AN ANGEL MADE OUT OF….SILK.

    1. Some days I’m just too lazy for twenty seven takes. Plus I get finger cramps. That’s what she said. Hey Ohhh!

      Angelic. Yup. That’s definitely one of the words most often used to describe me. Ahem.

      Have you decided what our first duet will be yet?

  2. There’s just something incredibly sincere in your voice and I was surprised to find myself tearing up! What are you doing to me Devil Woman?!

    Seriously Sweetie, there is no way you could be any cuter! I would lick you if I could! *SLURP*

  3. I’m crying a little, and I’m not even on my periods. I totally sang along. You are so damn cute. The only thing that would make this better is if you would go an have a May-December romance with Ruth Gordon.

    1. I’m on my periods. I thought we were all synced up. Obviously you’re pregnant. That’s probably why you’re crying – hormones.

      Man I love that movie. *sigh*

  4. You’re all kinds of sunshine and light, Elly Lou.

    And now I find myself contemplating how ridiculous all 5’10 of me would look holding a ukelele. I think I would be more suited for the standing bass or something equally monsterous.

  5. They let me out of the locked room for this and it was worth the blow job I had to give to syphilitic guard.
    Now, let me tell you about my taco. How much better can you fucking get over the short expanse of a week?
    Oh and yes, I did have to spell check syphilitic.

  6. Killer sideburns AND that is a natural hair part.. Jealous! I waited all day, and you just made my Friday. If only I could do bangs… Then maybe I could match your awesomeness!

  7. Note to self: Never say to a patient – “So tell me about your taco.”

    Uhm, great singing and interesting the way you rub Herbert before you strum…
