The Lazy Song is off of Mars’ Doo-Wop & Hooligans record. The song was a big deal for a long time, with lots of airtime and a music video with monkeys. Naturally, ʻukulele players everywhere want to learn the chords.
The ʻukulele chords for The Lazy Song are easy in the verses and chorus, but the pre-chorus and bridge disqualify it from being an “easy” song, in my opinion. If you’re a beginner just stick to the simple sections and you’ll still be able to play the majority of the song.
For strumming this song your best bet is going to be a basic reggae strum. You can use it to copy the simple guitar chank.
