Yes it's a camp classic and possibly up there with the best uke tracks of all time. It is possible to play with the original but you need to play it in F and put a capo on at the first fret as the song is recorded in the key F sharp ! You can retune your uke if there's no capo handy and move it up a semitone

Two more tips ! Play the intro with a kazoo ! and when you get to the end of the verse pinch an F note 8 times to go into the chorus
