Updated 80’s Song

When I was attending high school in the early 80’s, and then University in the later 80’s, one of my favorite bands was Heart. Maybe because they were both girls and they both rocked it! I don’t know, but their hit What About Love? was a rock ‘n’ roll radio station standard of the times that played well into the 90’s. Some of my fondest memories of that time involve hanging with my friends at the Norfolk County Fair while many Heart songs were played on rides, such as The Polar Express.

Last year (2013) I discovered this great Canadian band out of Montreal called Lucky Uke. They are an all-uke band, and are fairly famous. They were asked to sing a duet with Colbie Callait called Please Please Stay.

Upon performing an extensive Youtube search, I discovered Lucky Uke’s cover of What About Love?, and went to their website to download the lyrics and chords. The chords I provide here are exactly the same ones that are used by the band. They did not indicate chord placement, nor did they provide chord boxes, and also they left out parts they added, such as  “Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah”, and also the last 6 lines of their arrangement for their video. I have attached a PDF of my version to this post with the chord boxes, so when you listen to their video via Youtube you will be able to play and sing along somewhat accurately if not perfectly. 🙂

WHAT ABOUT LOVE?

I’ve been [Gm] lonely, [Eb]    I’ve been [Bb] waiting for [F]you

I’m pre-[Gm]tending, [Eb]    and that’s [Bb] all I can [F] do

[Gm] The love I’m [Eb] sending, ain’t [Bb] making it [F] through to your [Eb] heart…..

You’ve been [Gm] hiding, [Eb]    never [Bb] letting it [F] show

Always [Gm] trying, [Eb] to keep it [Bb] under con-[F]trol

[Gm]  You got it [Eb] down and, you’re [Bb] well on the [F] way to the [Eb] top…

–                       

But there’s [F] somethin’  that you [F] forgot!

–                           

What about [Bb] LOVE?  Don’t you [Eb] want someone to [F] care about you?

What about [Bb] LOVE?  Don’t [Eb] let it slip a-[F]way-ay-ay!

What about [Bb] LOVE?  I [Eb] only want to [F] share it with you

You might [Eb] need it someday….

I can’t [Gm] tell you, [Eb]    what you’re [Bb] feelin’ in-[F]side

I can’t [Gm] sell you, [Eb]     what you [Bb] don’t want to [F] buy

[Gm]  Something’s [Eb] missing and you [Bb] got to look [F] back on your [Eb] life

–                    

You know [F] somethin’   just   ain’t  right!!

– 

What about [Bb] LOVE?  Don’t you [Eb] want someone to [F] care about you?

What about [Bb] LOVE?  Don’t [Eb] let it slip a-[F]way-ay-ay!

What about [Bb] LOVE?  I [Eb] only want to [F] share it with you,

       I only want to [F] share it with you-oo….Oh!

[Bb]  Yeah, [Eb] yeah, yeah, [F] yeaaaaaah.

[Bb]  Yeah, [Eb] yeah, yeah, [F] yeaaaaaah.

–  

REPEAT CHORUS

– 

What about [Bb] LOVE?  Don’t you [Eb] want someone to [F] care about you?

What about [Bb] LOVE?  Don’t [Eb] let it slip a-[F]way-ay-ay!

What about [Bb] LOVE?  I [Eb] only want to [F] share it with you,

You might [Eb] need it someday, you might [F] need it someday!

– 

You might [Bb] need it, [Eb]   you might [F] need it

You might [Bb] need it some[Eb]day,   you might [F] need it someday….

–                                                   

What about [Bb] love?      [Eb]    What a-[F]bout it?

What about [Bb] love?      [Eb]    What a-[F]bout it?

 

[Bb]  Yeah, [Eb] yeah, yeah, [F] yeaaaaaah.
