Little Saint Nick - Ukulele Chords

Tired of Christmas ukulele songs yet? Of course you ain't! Here is another - the classic Beach Boys hit - Little Saint Nick




Suspect the only chord that might be unusual to beginners is the D6 - which is played as a complete barre at the second fret - in other words including the A string that you normally wouldn't in a normal D


[D] Oooooooo [Em] Merry Christ[A]mas Santa
[D] Christmas comes this time each year [Em] Oooooooo [A] ooooooo

[Em] Well, way [A] up North [Em] where the [A] air gets cold
[D] There's a tale [D6] about [D] Christmas that [D6] you've all been told
[Em] And a real [A] famous [Em] cat all [A] dressed up in red
[D] And he [D6] spends the [D] whole year [D6] workin' out on his sled

[G] It's the little Saint Nick, little Saint Nick
It's the [Em] little Saint Nick...[A] little Saint Nick
Just a [Em] little [A] bobsled, [Em] we call it ol' Saint Nick
But [D] she'll walk [D6] a toboggan [D] with a [D6] four speed stick
She's [Em] can[A]dy apple [Em] red with a [A] ski for a wheel
And [D] when Santa [D6] hits the gas, [D] man, [D6] just watch her peel.
[G] It's the little Saint Nick, little Saint Nick
It‟s the [Em] little Saint Nick...[A] little Saint Nick

[G] Run run reindeer
[C] Run run reindeer ahhhhhhhh
[G] Run run reindeer [E] Run run reindeer [break] we don't miss no one

He's [Em] hauling [A] through the [Em] snow at a [A] frightenin' speed
With [D] half a [D6] dozen [D] deer with [D6] a-Rudy to lead
[Em] He's gotta wear [A] his goggles [Em] 'cause the [A] snow really flies
And [D] he's cruisin' [D6] every [D] pad with [D6] a little surprise
[G] It's the little Saint Nick, little Saint Nick
It's the [D] little Saint Nick...[B7] little Saint Nick

Ahh[Em] [A] [Em] [A] [Oooooooo] Merry Christmas [D]Santa
[D] Christmas comes this time each year X2
