Darlin Ukelele

A surprise package turned up in the post recently. This box was inside. It was a box of tricks. A silent music box awaiting the kiss of life. A limited edition Red Hornet ukulele kit from Jonny Hannah.

All I had to do was put it together.

It was made for Jonny’s exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park – Main Street.

And there’s even a Hawaiian shirt token.

And a couple of fancy strumming tunes.

darlin ukulele that I been dreaming of
darlin ukulele that I love

When I’m in San Francisco
I’m dreaming all the time
deep in the park
where the constellations shine

darlin ukulele that I been dreaming of
darlin ukulele that I love

Dreaming by the ocean
walking by the sea
talking to a starfish
and the mermaids sing to me
