 G
I have been trying
      Am     D            G
To write a haiku for you
   Am            D
Some things I just can’t do


 G                   Am
Maybe you’re beyond
         D           G
Ancient asian poetry
 Am       D
Or maybe it’s just me


 G
I have been trying
     Am          D        Em         A
To get this haiku just right all night
       Em      A      D
For you; alright I’m through


 G
Maybe this poem
        Am           D            G
Was lost in the sauce we spilled
   Am        D
That never got refilled


 G
I’ve never thought much
        Am      D          G
Of formulaic verse anyway
  Am             D
And rhymes are not my forte


 G
I have been trying
     Am          D        Em         A
To get this haiku just right all night
       Em      A      D
For you; alright I’m through


CHORUS:
F          Dm      G       C
I’m trying not to try too hard
    F              G          C
But you’re hard to write down right
F    Dm         G        C
So I pen these tried attempts
   F          G      Am    D
At haikus for you tonight


SOLO:
G   Am   D (x2)


 G
Lah dah dee diddum
      Am       D            G
Lah dah dee doom doo ditto
  Am          D
Dum doo lah dee doh


 G           (N.C.)
There, that’s sufficient
      Am       D        Em
I wrote a haiku for you
            A                       Em
Well I tried at least, and that’s not so bad
         A               D
I’m working here; can that be said for you


CHORUS:
F          Dm      G       C
I’m trying not to try too hard
    F              G          C
But you’re hard to write down right
F    Dm         G        C
So I pen these tried attempts
   F          G      Am    D
At haikus for you tonight


F            Dm        G       C
Words don’t work like Webster says
      F      G        C
They trip me up all night
F         Dm        G         C
I’m just trying to write for you
     F              G          C
But you’re hard to write down right

It sounds great, but I think maybe all the chords should be power chords. It sounds really high in the song (probably because it's played by a ukulele or something), but maybe you could change the G to an A power chord on the 10th fret, the D to an A power chord on the fifth or (maybe better) an E power chord on the 14th fret and so on.
