Baby Beluga

Baby Beluga is lyrically complex and fairly long, so if I sing it at storytime I’ll try to print out song sheets. Though it’s such a beloved children’s song (dating to parents’ childhoods now), that there are always a handful of folks who don’t need it.

I’m only including the first verse and last line, so if you need a refresher, head over to Raffi’s website where he’s kindly shared the full lyrics and his own musical arrangement. The chords below are slightly simplified from the songbook of the Vancouver Ukulele Circle. And yes, I posted this once before, but my computer ate it, so here it is again:


Baby Beluga
C

Baby beluga in the deep blue sea
                     G7
Swim so wild and you swim so free
G7

Heaven above, and the sea below
                                C

And a little white whale on the go


F            C            D

Baby beluga, baby beluga, is the water warm?
                       G7

Is your mama home with you, so happy


Verse 2: Way down yonder where the dolphins play...

Verse 3: When it's dark, you're home and fed...

Conclusion: Repeat first four lines, then:


C              F           G7           C
You're just a little white whale on the go
