Songfacts®:

  • Eighteen-year-old Holly Kirby said she wrote "My Little Ukulele Song" for someone very special. This humorous love ditty is far superior to, and has absolutely nothing in common with, the innuendo laiden "With My Little Ukulele In My Hand" recorded by George Formby three quarters of a century earlier. Videoed in her home studio with clever overdubbing and a duet with herself in counterpoint, she evokes Kate Bush. >>
