Right Hand Technique for ‘Ukulele: A Detailed Guide to Strumming & Picking

“Honey Baby” By 3 Plus ‘Ukulele Chords

Of all the songs that my students ask me about (“Do you know how to play…”), Honey Baby by 3 Plus is probably in the top 5. It’s a fun song that anyone can make their own.

Dominator did a great ‘ukulele tab for this song a while back, but didn’t include the words. I figured I would make a more jam session friendly version. If you want to know all the fills and solos, check out Dom’s tab. As always, it’s a fabulously well done transcription.

The chords repeat throughout the whole song with a DXUUD strum.

I saw you there standing under the mango tree
A beautiful woman who looked so fine to me
She had all the things that I've been searching for
She had ehu hair, a flower in her ear, and bongo shorts

Chorus:
She's my Honey Baby
My Honey Baby yeah
My Honey Baby
My Honey Baby yeah...

So girl I want you to know that wherever you go
I won't be far away
As I kiss your lips while you sway your hips
You'll just hear me say...

Chorus>

Instrumental

Me say my sweet Honey Baby yes you know I love you so
So hold on tight and baby never let go
Because you know that when you call me
I'll be there when I can
And you can count on me cause I'm your Hawaiian Superman

Chorus>

Instrumental

Girl I just told you how I feel for you
And every word I said, yes you know it's true
Before I go there's just one more thing, my darlin'
I give you total commitment girl with this wedding ring

Chorus>

Yes I want you to know that you're mine
All of the time, rain or shine
Girl you're mine (2x)....

I’m an ‘ukulele artist from Honoka’a, Hawai’i, where I run this site from a little plantation house in the jungle. I’ve taught workshops internationally, made Herb Ohta Jr. laugh until he cried, and once borrowed a uke to jam with HAPA onstage in my boardshorts. More about me
