I recorded a ukulele and xylophone cover of Tally Hall's Hidden In The Sand, off their album Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum, which I used to listen to a lot. The song shuffled into my ears as I was walking the sand and ice, and I hurried home to record it, trying to beat the setting sun. The chords are available below!

Tally Hall is a band I listened to ages ago - I made fan art for them, I recommended their web comedy show to anyone who would listen, and I even re-made their music video Good Day, putting my face in all the screens instead of theirs, so it's safe to say they were an influence on me, but I never did a cover until right now!
My ukulele is tuned in D, which makes it sound a bit different than the original, but I decided to just go with it! The chords I use are the same as in the original version (I think) but they sound a bit lower. The Xylophone bits I just kinda made up as I went, you can see how I play it in the video. Here are the lyrics and chords:
Hidden In The Sand ukulele chords: E6 Eb6 E6 - E6 Eb6 E6 - A Am -E6 Eb6 E6
We were playing in the sand
When you found a little band
You told me you fell in love with it
Hadn't gone as I planned
When you had to bid adieu
Said you'd never love anew
I wondered if I could hold it
And fall in love with it too
You told me to buy a pony
But all I wanted was you
