Story Behind the Song

About missing my young granddaughter and connecting long distance through our mutual ukuleles

Lyrics

Somewhere sand is sneaking up between your toes, somewhere swings are pumping in the park all day Somewhere I'm with you and it's the weekend, but somewhere's not the place I am today Wish I'd see you revving up your bright blue car, wish I'd hear you calling for a lullabye Wish that you could fill my heart with laughter, but I can't wish me there, no matter how I try
Be safe and try to help your parents, sometimes their logic is a mystery And when you play your ukulele, strum that ukulele, When you play your ukulele, won't you remember me?
Wonder if you finally learned to climb that tree, wonder if you've grown another inch or two Wonder if you've taken off your pink sunglasses, wonder is the only word for you I'll be there when you wake and call my name, I'll be there, spooning up some more ice cream I'll be there, when you're singing "Twinkle, Twinkle," I'll be there, even if it's in my dreams. Keep smiling, never lose your sparkle, even when they're giving you the third degree And when you play your ukulele, strum that ukulele, When you play your ukulele, won't you remember me?
