She sure showed us

My first ukulele song, written to help farewell our friend Natalie who I’ve been lucky enough to work alongside for the past four years. She deserved a decent sendoff and we were dead set against following the standard council model of farewelling staff with sandwiches and a cup of tea in the squarest meeting room. When we performed this song we did a kind of mini flashmob thing in which I started on the uke, then another friend Cheryl bobbed out from the crowd shaking a maraca and Shelmo followed with harmonica. And then we went out for beer.
