Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots - Flaming Lips for Ukulele


I am a big fan of the Flaming Lips, and think this tune works just brilliantly on the ukulele. Just get your strum to match that opening guitar strum on the original and you are away.

YOSHIMI for ukulele


Intro (played in choppy rhythm in time with vocal line)

[C] [Emin] [Dm] [F] [G]

Verse 1:

[C]Her name is Yo[Em]shimi
[Dm]She's a black belt in ka[G]rate
[C]Working for the [Em]city
[Dm]She has to discipline her [G]body

'Cause she [F]knows that
It's de[G]manding
To de[C]feat those evil ma[F]chines
I know she can [G]beat them

Oh Yo[C]shimi, they don't be[Em]lieve me
But [Dm]you won't let those [F]robots [G]eat me
Yo[C]shimi, they don't be[Em]lieve me
But [Dm]you won't let those [F]robots de[G]feat me

Verse 2:

[C]Those evil-natured [Em]robots
[Dm]They're programmed to des[G]troy us
[C]She's gotta be strong to [Em]fight them
[Dm]So she's taking lots of [G]vitamins


'Cause she [F]knows that
It'd be [G]tragic
If those [C]evil robots [F]win
I know she can [G]beat them

Oh Yo[C]shimi, they don't be[Em]lieve me
But [Dm]you won't let those [F]robots de[G]feat me
Yo[C]shimi, they don't be[Em]lieve me
But [Dm]you won't let those [F]robots [G]eat me

Repeat Intro, then..


'Cause she [F]knows that
It'd be [G]tragic
If those [C]evil robots [F]win
I know she can [G]beat them

Oh Yo[C]shimi, they don't be[Em]lieve me
But [Dm]you won't let those [F]robots de[G]feat me
Yo[C]shimi, they don't be[Em]lieve me
But [Dm]you won't let those [F]robots [G]eat me
