We are always on the road and it’s inevitable to be stuck in the horrible traffic of Metro Manila, so we are constantly looking for ways to entertain Skye (and ourselves). We highly discourage the use of mobile phones when we are travelling, and having a screen time while on the road is a big NO so we make sure we have activities to keep us happy and occupied. 

A month ago, we bought a cheap ukulele (so please understand the discordant tune). It serves as a perfect tool to keep us entertained whenever we are stuck in traffic. It’s so effective in keeping our spirit chirpy in spite of the slow-paced drive whenever there’s a traffic congestion.

We self-studied some songs with simple chords and Someone to Lava has become one of our favorites. This Lava Song Ukelele Tutorial is best for kids.

Intro: C – G7 – F – C – G7 – C

Verse:
C                                      G7
A long long time ago, there was a volcano.
F                                        C                         G7
Living all alone, in the middle of the sea.
C                                               G7
He sat high above his bay, watching all the couples play,
F                                C                              G7
and wishing that, he had someone too.
C                                                     G7                                                        F
And from his lava came, this song of hope that he sang out-loud everyday,
C                        G7
for years and years.

 

Chorus:
F                              C
I have a dream, I hope will come true,
         G7                                           C
that you’re here with me and I’m here with you
F                                                       C    
I wish that the earth, sea, the sky up above
        F               G7                  C
will send me someone to la-va



Verse:
C                                             G7
Years of singing all alone, turned his lava into stone,
F                                   C                           G7
Until he was on the brink of extinction.
C                                                G7
But little did he know that living in the sea below
F                                      C                           G7
Another volcano was listening to his song.

C                                                            G7
Every day she heard his tune, her lava grew and grew
F                                              C                                    G7
because she believed his song was meant for her.
C                                                  G7
Now she was so ready to meet him above the sea
F                                         C                              G7
As he sang his song of hope for the last time.

 

Chorus:
F                              C
I have a dream, I hope will come true,
         G7                                           C
That you’re here with me and I’m here with you
F                                                       C    
I wish that the earth, sea, the sky up above
        F               G7                  C
will send me someone to la-va

 

Verse:
C                                                G7
Rising from the sea below stood a lovely volcano
F                                        C                               G7
Looking all around but she could not see him.
C                                                                   G7
He tried to sing to let her know that she was not there alone,
       F                             G7                    C
But with no lava his song was all gone.

C                                                         G7
He filled the sea with his tears watched his dreams disappear
F                                                      C                          G7
As she remembered what his song meant to her.

 

Chorus:
F                              C
I have a dream, I hope will come true,
         G7                                           C
that you’re here with me and I’m here with you
F                                                       C    
I wish that the earth, sea, the sky up above
        F               G7                  C
Will send me someone to la-va



Verse:
C                                                        G7
And oh they were so happy to finally meet above the sea
        F                                        G7                      C
and all together now their lava grew and grew.

C                                                           G7
No longer are they alone with Aloha as their new home
         F                                     C                              G7
and when you go and visit them, this is what they sing.

 

End:
F                              C
I have a dream, I hope will come true,
         G7                                           C
That you’ll grow old with me, and I’ll grow old with you
F                                                       C    
We thank the earth, sea, the sky we thank yoo
F   G7    C
I la-va you.
