How to play UKIP Calypso on guitar

UKIP Calypso song

If you’ve had half an eye on the news or Twitter today you will probably already be aware that former Radio 1 DJ Mike Read has released a song called UKIP Calypso.

It’s a dreadful, dreadful song about Nigel Farage becoming Prime Minister (shudder) set to a calypso chord pattern and questionable ‘Caribbean’ vocals by Mike Read.

With that being said, it’s also a fun song to play along to – and a handy one to add to your repertoire for that next house party (just think of the ironic singalong fun to be had with it!)

To give you a helping hand at playing UKIP Calypso on the guitar, we’ve unscientifically got a below chord sequence together (via Chordify). It’s not spot on, at all, but it’s a start.

It’s basically a lot of messing around with chords A, E and D with a bit of Bm thrown in for good measure.

Perhaps expecting a bit of a backlash, UKIP haven’t made the song available to embed on third party sites so if you want to listen to it you need to go direct to YouTube.
