Melanie Martinez - Dear Porcupines
Tuning: Open C6 (G C E A)
Arranged key: C harmonic minor (A B C D E F G# A)
Original key: C# harmonic minor (C# D# E F# G# A B# C#), either put a capo on first fret or transpose to +1
Tempo: 62-71 bpm

(This is the best sounding arrangement I could come up with for ukulele that's not too tiresome to play, 
but you need to check the chord numbers below to make sure you play the versions I do to make it work, 
and also remember to put a capo on the first fret to get the same key that Melanie plays in)



[Intro]: Cm Eb Abmaj7 G

  Cm                              Eb
Drown me in my daily cup of tea, tell the porcupines to quit stabbing me
    Abmaj7                                 G
They make me fall, but I will stand, cause all of them are jerks with their cups in their hands
 Cm                                               Eb
Now they want a whisper, a whisper from me, cause all of them have watched me on their big screen TV's
   Abmaj7                                     G
But what about little ol', little ol' me, the one who got bullied, because of her teeth

   Cm                           Eb                       Abmaj7                          G
I hope you all are watching my middle finger rise, to the bullies in the school yard I know I'm on your mind
 Cm                            Eb                 Abmaj7                           G
Now you say you love me, but what about before, when I was just that silly little girl next door
   Cm   Eb Abmaj7 G
Oh oh, oooh

 Cm                                        Eb
Ladies oh ladies, why are you so mad, is it cause I'm classy and you're a trash bag
    Abmaj7                                                 G
Your teasing and laughing resonates through my heart, and now you're calling me cause you want a fresh start
     Cm                                                Eb
Now look at you boys you can't believe your eyes, you told me I was ugly and I took you by surprise
    Abmaj7                                                   G
You should've been nicer cause look where I'm at, while you copy Mac Miller wearing snapback hats

   Cm                           Eb                       Abmaj7                          G
I hope you all are watching my middle finger rise, to the bullies in the school yard I know I'm on your mind
 Cm                            Eb                 Abmaj7                           G
Now you say you love me, but what about before, when I was just that silly little girl next door
   Cm   Eb Abmaj7 G
Oh oh, oooh

 Cm                                          Eb
Why must you be so mean, talking trash about me
Abmaj7                                                    G                       Cm Eb Abmaj7 G
All I wanted was a friend to laugh and cry and spend all eternity or even just a week

   Cm                           Eb                       Abmaj7                          G
I hope you all are watching my middle finger rise, to the bullies in the school yard I know I'm on your mind
 Cm                            Eb                 Abmaj7                           G              Cm
Now you say you love me, but what about before, when I was just that silly little girl next door, ooh

So to be clear, on guitar she plays in A minor with a capo on the fourth fret (as my guitar upload here on ug shows by the way), but it doesn't work as well on ukulele in my opinion. I just think the Fmaj7 (third chord, Fmaj7/C on guitar) sounds out of place and the E (fourth chord) is too tiresome to play.
