William H. Macy on Oprah

This week, the Oprah Show re-ran an appearance by the stars of the new movie Wild Hogs, in which uke enthusiast (and occasional actor) William H. Macy played his Flea Ukulele and sang a song skewering his co-stars while being humbly honest about himself. According to the fine folks over on the Fleamarket Music Bulletin Board, the ditty was composed by none other than Jumpin' Jim Beloff hisself.

Will the uke's appearance lead to Oprah's Uke Club? No announcement has been made. In the meantime, we all wait in rapt anticipation. Link

Oh I look mean in Wild Hogs
on my machine in Wild Hogs
F G7
Oh boy this boy can ride

I got it all together when
I'm all zipped up in leather then

I dunno, I just look good in hide

F G7 C
i'm the only one that's cool

Girls always look on themselves as proud princesses, with the exception of a small number of either extremely ugly or exceedingly smart ones.
