Santa Baby is a great Christmas song, and one you can make really fun and silly so a great singing voice isn’t required. Here’s a great PDF of the full chords and lyrics to the song.
The strum pattern will be a simple and slow down, down strum followed by a chord change, and the last C on each line will be played a few more times. You can experiment with what sounds good to you.
Chords: G, A, D, Bm
Strum Pattern: D, XU, UXU (see our ukulele strum patterns guide for more information on how to read this and how to do a “chunk strum”, denoted by “X”)
