“Happy” By Pharrell Williams ‘Ukulele Chords

The most obnoxiously exuberant song the radio has heard in a long time would have to be Pharrell’s Happy. Because of the upbeat vibe, it’s a great fit for the ‘ukulele.

It’s pretty easy to play. The main requirement for making it work is a solid grasp on a groovy rhythm for the boring parts when you pedal on E7 for the whole verse. You can add a chord riff of E7, A, B, A at the end of every verse line if you like. This makes for a nice change of scenery following the long chord.

E7                    
It might seem crazy what I'm about to say 
E7                    
Sunshine she's here, you can take a break 
E7             
I'm a hot air balloon that could go to space 
E7           
With the air, like I don't care baby by the way 

Chorus:
            C                 Bm7                E7                      
Because I'm happy, clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
            C                 Bm7              E7                      
Because I'm happy, clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
            C                 Bm7              E7                      
Because I'm happy, clap along if you know what happiness is to you
            C                 Bm7              E7                      
Because I'm happy, clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do

E7                      
Here come bad news talking this and that
E7
Give me all you got, don’t hold it back
E7
Well I should probably warn you I'll be just fine
E7        
No offense to you don’t waste your time (here's why)
