Song background and Tom's comments

This song, as with many of them, is performed differently every time. In this case, it's because if I played it on a ukulele, and sang 'with my piano here at hand' suddenly there are complications. Naturally the lyrics have to change to accommodate the name of the instrument, so if ever I have to play it on a hurdy gurdy, a harpsichord or a chapman stick, alternative lyric suggestions are appreciated.

Lyrics

Lyrics for uncertainty

Now I know I'm not the sort
Of guy who'll sit and talk 'bout sport
It's true.

And I know it seems unplanned
With my piano/ukulele (delete as appropriate) here at hand
But I've got something I want to ask you.

And if I had a pound for every
Time you turned me down
I'd have one pound fifty
In my bank account right now
the world can see,
we're not that different you and me
so let's get together, show the world
how different we can be
Oh, oh, oh.

And I know that in the past,
You're answer's no when I have asked
But still

Hope springs eternal
That one day you'll feel maternal
And there's a hole within your soul that I can fill.

So I'll ask again
If you will go out with me
Even though I know deep down
What the answer's gonna be
my girl until we die,
If I kill a man, be my alibi,
But please just let me know,
Tell me yes or no,
Oh, oh, oh.
