lyrics

JIB
thank you Gary
for the ukulele
wrapped up all pretty 
and brought over unexpectedly
yesterday

GARY
You’re welcome
baby

JIB
I’ve only picked it up
a couple of times
But you can see already
how expertly I plaaaaaaay
It

you've only taught me
these two chords
and as far as I can tell
they don’t work with any
other songs

Except for this one
that I’m just making up
but hey I think it’s pretty good
Considering it didn’t exist
30 seconds ago
and realistically
I can’t play it wrong

GARY
that's true

JIB
making up a song
isn’t totally unlike unwrapping a present
you don’t know what you’ll find
you’ve just got to cut a few strings
rip through the paper
open it up
and take a look inside

of the song, I mean
Not the present
or well technically I guess it’s both
cuz it's a metaphor and that's what songwriting is

Now we rock the chorus…

JIB MARRIS
What’s inside the song? Goodnight
Inside the song? My girl
What’s in there?
What’s inside the song? Let your dreams take you
All over the world
Now you harmonize, Gar

JIB & GARY MARRIS (con’t)
What’s inside the song? Fly anywhere you
Inside the song? Want to go
What’s in there?
What’s inside the song? I love you so

What if I’m afraid to Goodnight
open it my girl
It might turn out wrong Let your dreams take you
All over the world
What’s inside the song? Fly anywhere you
Inside the song? Want to go
Inside the song?
Inside the song? I love you so
