Uku-Tuesday Video! “The Way I Behaved” from The Last Unicorn

This week’s Uku-Tuesday is brought to you by the godfather of modern fantasy – Peter S. Beagle! Peter is the author of The Last Unicorn, which happens to be my favorite book of all time, and also a delightfully weird animated feature film from the 1980s.

In the novel, Prince Lir asks the Lady Amalthea what he can do to help her when she is troubled by nightmares. She asks him to sing to her, and this is the song that he sings. It’s a bit dark for the occasion, but it makes her laugh nonetheless. In the audiobook version of the novel, Peter sings the song to this tune, and I transcribed it with my brain-powers onto the uke.

I hope you enjoy it!
