Note from Jeremy D. (fearofscissors@aol.com): (7-22-2002)
If you happen to have (or want to get) a ukelele, the tuning is
GCEA, and the fingerings are:

        G C E A
D       3 3 3 0
Dsus4   0 2 3 0
G       0 2 3 2
A       2 1 0 0
Em      0 4 0 2
B7      2 3 2 2
Em7     0 2 0 2
A7      0 1 0 0
F#m     2 1 2 0
Bbdim   0 1 0 1
Bm      x 2 2 2 (or, if you can reach, 4 2 2 2)
A7sus4  0 2 0 0

If anyone's got one on hand...feel free to e-mail me with corrections.

Also, if you play the above chord forms on a guitar capoed at the 
5th fret & ignore the E and A strings it should sound in the same key 
as a ukulele.

|G                    |A
 Some people seem so obsessed with the morning
      |G                          |A
Get up early just to watch the sun rise
|G                                      |A
   Some people like it more when there's fire in the sky
|G                        |A
 Worship the sun when it's high
|Em                         |B7
    Some people go for those sultry evenings
       |Em               B7           |Em
Sipping cocktails in the blue, red and grey
   |Em7         |A7           |D      Dsus4 D...
But I like every minute of the day

|G           |F#m       |G                    |F#m
 I like every second, so long as you are on my mind
|G                     |Bbdim
   Every moment has its special charm
        |Bm                               |A7sus4   |A7
It's all right when you're around, rain or shine

I know a crowd who only live after midnight
Their faces always seem so pale
And then there's friends of mine who must have sunlight
They say a suntan never fails
I know a man who works the night shift
He's lucky to get a job and some pay
And I like every minute of the day

I dig every second, I can laugh in the snow and rain
I get a buzz from being cold and wet
The pleasure seems to balance out the pain

And so you see that I'm completely crazy
I even shun the south of France
The people on the hill, they say I'm lazy
But when they sleep, I sing and dance
Some people have to have the sultry evenings
Cocktails in the blue, red and grey
But I like every minute of the day
 |G         |A7           |D   Dsus4 D   Dsus4 |D   Dsus4 D  Dsus4|D
I like every minute of the day
