    The More We Play Together (p.4) I think that the words below are perfect for our group (youtube vid of Joshua playing it.)
    The more we get together, together, together, the more we get together the happier we'll be.  
    For your friends are my friends and my friends are your friends.  Oh, the more we get together, the happier we'll be.
    Oh, lets play the ukulele, let's all play it daily the more we play it daily, the happier we'll be.  
    When I uke and you uke and we uke and they uke, yes the more we play it daily, the happier we'll be.
