[Verse 1]
D                              G
Mel Bay, in your manual, you taught us how to hold a pick
    D                                  A
You got to hold it in this manner, to play them fancy licks
D                                          G
Now we're happily strummin along, and you ought to hear us play
D                                  A7                D
And I guess we owe it all to you, thanks a lot, Mel Bay


[Chorus]
D                  G             
Mel Bay, Mel Bay, we just wanna say
D                                     A                   D
We wouldn't know what we're doin, if you hadn't shown the way
D                   G
Mel Bay, Mel Bay, everytime we play, 
D                                 A7                   D
we're always thinking of you, and hope you have a nice day

On page 21, you showed us how to play a G
D                          A7
On page 22, you showed us how to play a D
D                          G
But Lawdy, oh lawdy, we never learned to play an E, 
       D                         A7        D
cause someone in the outhouse, stole page 23


[Verse 3]
D                              G
I'm goin down to Goodins, to buy me a ukelele
D                              A7          
I wanna learn to play Gershin, on the uke-le-le
D                                    G                
I just bought your book, Mel Bay, on how to play the fiddle
D                                           A7          D
I can play, on that high string, and those two in the middle

E                                      A
You know we're gettin better, than we ever thought we could
E                                      B7            E
Please send us another book and we'll play twice as good
