Under Hanalei Moon (3/26/2002) (#001)

Like the gentle winds that blow there – is my love for you.
Hand in hand we strolled the sands – my love’s still true.
Hanalei bay is calling – me back to you.
Beams of love are under – Hanalei Moon.

Hanalei Moon – I’ll come back to you.
Hanalei Moon – You’ll be there too.
Gentle winds are calling – me back to you.
Beams of love are under – Hanalei Moon.

On the isle they call Kauai – a flower for your hair.
Gentle winds and mem’ ries – waiting for me there.
Hanalei bay is calling – me back to you.
Beams of love are under – Hanalei Moon.

Hanalei Moon – I’ll come back to you.
Hanalei Moon – You’ll be there too.
Gentle winds are calling – me back to you.
Beams of love are under – Hanalei Moon.
Beams of love are under – Hanalei Mooon.



Under Hanalei Moon – Hawaiian (3/26/2002) (#001)

Pa mai ka makani…he ‘oia’io ko’u aloha

‘O Hanalei, kou mahina…e ho’i au ia ‘oe

Pumehana ke aloha ma lalo o…ko Hanalei mahina



Under Honolulu Moon (Larry W. Jones 3/26/2002) (song#001a; alt title of Under Hanalei Moon)

Like the gentle winds that blow there, is my love for you.
Hand in hand we strolled the sands, my love’s still true.
Honolulu bay is calling, me back to you.
Beams of love are under, Honolulu Moon.

Honolulu Moon, I’ll come back to you.
Honolulu Moon, you’ll be there too.
Gentle winds are calling, me back to you.
Beams of love are under, Honolulu Moon.

On the isle they call Oahu, a flower for your hair.
Gentle winds and mem’ries, waiting for me there.
Honolulu bay is calling, me back to you.
Beams of love are under, Honolulu Moon.

Honolulu Moon, I’ll come back to you.
Honolulu Moon, you’ll be there too.
Gentle winds are calling, me back to you.
Beams of love are under, Honolulu Moon.
Beams of love are under, Honolulu Mooon



Maui Boy From Ulupalakua (04/07/2002) (#002)

Well, he’s here today but he’s gone to Maui
Gonna make a lot of Maui Maui wowee
Cause he’s a Maui boy from Ulupalakua
Wailua girls are teaching him the hula
Wahinis dressed in little skirts of grasses
(Man I need a pair of Maui Jim sun-glass’es!)
Humuhumunukunuku’apua’a power
Put a lei lei made of frangipani flowers
Round the neck of “Sistah Val”, the Maui DJ tower
Then listen to K-P-O-A FM for hours
From Kaanapali beach to the bay at Kahului
Man he rides’ those waves! He’s got to be from Maui
That’s why he’s here today but he’s gone to Maui
Gonna make a lot of Maui Maui wowee
Cause he’s a Maui boy from Ulupalakua
Wailua girls are teaching him the hula
Wahinis dressed in little skirts of grasses
(Man I need a pair of Maui Jim sun-glass’es!)
He’s a Maui boy from Ulupalakua
(fade) He’s a Maui boy from Ulupalakua
(fade) He’s a Maui boy from Ulupalakua
(shout) He’s a Maui boy!



My Aloha Moon (05/17/2002) (#003)

Come shine, my Aloha moon – On the shores of Waikiki.
Here is where I’ll wait – For her love patiently.
Shore bird go and fly – Through this paradise.
Bring Leilani here to me – To the sands of Waikiki.
Bring Leilani here to me – To the sands of Waikiki.

Shine soft, Honolulu moon – beams of love upon the sea.
Here is where I’ll wait – For her love endlessly.
Come shine, my Aloha moon – On this star filled night in June.
Bring Leilani here to me – Kuhio beach at Waikiki.
Bring Leilani here to me – Kuhio beach at Waikiki.

Come shine, my Aloha moon – On these words of love so true.
Tell everyone you meet – And Duke Kahanamoku too.
Here is where I’ll wait – For her love endlessly.
Bring Leilani here to me – Kuhio beach at Waikiki.
Bring Leilani here to me – Kuhio beach at Waikiki.

Come shine, my Aloha moon – on the shores of Waikiki.
Here is where I’ll wait – For her love patiently.
Shore bird go and fly – Through this paradise.
Sweet Leilani’s here with me – On the sands of Waikiki.
Sweet Leilani’s here with me – On the sands of Waikiki.
Shine on, my Aloha mooon.



O Bird of Paradise (06/02/2002) (#004)

O bird of paradise – To me come fly tonight.
Give wing to this my prayer – Your love forever share.
As the beauty of the sea – Waves of love bring to me.
From the mist above the falls – To me Hawaii calls.
To me Hawaii calls.

O bird of paradise – Flame of love is in your eyes.
Your touch, your sweet refrain – Rainbows will smile again.
Spread wing and come to me – Be mine now endlessly.
Hawaii calls and to me flies – My bird of paradise.
My bird of paradise.

O bird of paradise – Islands sing of your delights.
Here fly and bring your love – Stars shine for me above.
Like music for my soul – In my heart your love will flow.
Tell the song and I recall – To me Hawaii calls.
To me Hawaii calls.

O bird of paradise – Flame of love is in your eyes.
Your touch, your sweet refrain – Rainbows will smile again.
Spread wing and come to me – Be mine now endlessly.
Hawaii calls and to me flies – My bird of paradise.
My bird of paradise.



Slack-Key Pickin’ Poi-Finger Lickin’ (06/08/2002) (#005)

I heard a song about a slack-key Heaven and it sure did make me sad
So I went to a luau at Germaine’s and for that I sure am glad
Cause, no such thing as a slack-key Heaven. Couldn’t quite picture it anyhow
No such luck. They all got stuck with their fingers in the poi at Germaine’s luau

On the big stage was Gabby Pahinui and the Gabby Pahinui band
Slack-key pickin’, Poi-finger lickin’ and man did it sound grand!

They played Pu`uanahulu, Aloha Ka Manini, and Ipo Lei Manu too
Sons of Hawaii sang Kaua`i Beauty with the beauty of Ki ho’alu
The beauty of Ki ho’alu.

Heard soft and sweet mele, Pua Tuberose. Got a chill for what it’s worth
There singing solo was the Waimea cowboy, It was Sonny Chillingworth

From somewhere over the big rainbow came Makaha Sons of Ni’ihau
And Iz Kamakawiwo’ole, a wonderful world. His music’s still with us now

Well, there may not be a slack-key Heaven, but I’m not really surprised
To find ’em slack-key pickin’, poi-finger lickin’ in this slack-key paradise
This slack-key paradise

Keoki said there’s no finger lickin’ poi in Heaven or na hoku hanohano stars
Like Jerry, Byrd of Paradise and Sol Ho’opi’i, masters of the steel guitars

Are you staying at the luau finger lickin’ poi, or are you just passing through?
Seems all the ukuleles and the slack-key masters didn’t fit in that big canoe

Well, if you think I’m crazy, bring your ukulele and I’ll show you where to find some joy
George Winston’s there recordin’ those slack-key masters with a dancing cat lickin’ poi

When I get back home, I’m gonna surf on over and click on Aloha Joe
They’re all still here slack-key pickin’, poi-finger lickin’ on internet radio

Well, no such thing as a slack-key Heaven. Couldn’t quite picture it anyhow
No such luck. They all got stuck with their fingers in the poi at Germaine’s luau

On the big stage was Gabby Pahinui and the Gabby Pahinui band
Slack-key pickin’, Poi-finger lickin’ and man did it sound grand!

They played Pu`uanahulu, Aloha Ka Manini, and Ipo Lei Manu too
Sons of Hawaii sang Kaua`i Beauty with the beauty of Ki ho’alu
The beauty of Ki ho’alu.

Well, there may not be a slack-key Heaven, but I’m not really surprised
To find ’em slack-key pickin’, poi-finger lickin’, in this slack-key paradise
Slack-key pickin’, poi-finger lickin’, in this slack-key paradise

Play some more slack-key. Pass that poi. And take that cat back to George

Ipo lei Manu O Hanauma (06/18/2002) (#006)

When the sun shines brightly on the waters of Hanauma Bay
It reflects the beauty of the love that we share today
Ipo lei Manu, beautiful bird of this tropical paradise
I can see love. Reflections in the magic of Hawaiian eyes

Hanauma Bay, where the little fishes come to play
In my mind, colors of the rainbow on a sunny day
Ipo lei Manu, sweet in my heart, the love we have today
Warm as the sun, soft as rainbows on Hanauma Bay

As we go walking in the shade of the coconut trees
My heart sings a song, as free as an island breeze
Footprints in time. Yours and mine, in the sands of Hanauma Bay
Today you’re mine. Tomorrow will find that our love is here to stay

Hanauma Bay, where the little fishes come to play
In my mind, colors of the rainbow on a sunny day
Ipo lei Manu, sweet in my heart, the love we have today
Warm as the sun, soft as rainbows on Hanauma Bay
Warm as the sun, soft as rainbows on Hanauma Bay



Old Lahaina Town (06/19/2002) (#007)

Have you ever been blue, with nothing to do but look out at the rain?
Here’s what we’ll do. We’ll sail our canoe and sing us a new refrain
Just twenty degrees north latitude islands smile with ke Aloha attitude
You’ll never be blue in a cottage for two loving at sea level altitude

We’ll be living high while we’re flying low like shorebirds along the sand
No more feeling blue with just me and you working on our Hawaiian tan
When you’re done searching world ’round for a paradise to settle down
You can’t believe it’s true; you’re in a cottage for two in Old Lahaina town

Have you ever been blue, with nothing to do but look out at the rain?
Here the sun shines through and the rainbow hues cause you no pain
Old Lahaina Town where the pace slows down for loving life and you
We’ll never be blue in our cottage for two and loving in Aloha attitude

Feels like living high while lying low watching shorebirds along the sand
No more feeling blue with just me and you working on our Hawaiian tan
So, if you’re still searching world ’round for a paradise to settle down
You’ll never be blue in your cottage for two loving in Old Lahaina Town
You’ll never be blue in your cottage for two loving in Old Lahaina Town



No Blue Under Hanalei Moon (06/24/2002) (#008)

When I carved my X in the middle of Texas,
I told Eileen she could buy that Lexus soon
We could roll back the roof and howl at the big yellow Texas moon
Sweet Eileen said your X is at the end of Tex

Saddle up now or YOUR end will be there too
So I kissed my horse and I sold my saddle
Traded my boots for an outrigger paddle
Dropped my anchor in a beautiful bay – Hanalei

Now I’m herdin’ cows on Kauai, and here’s what I have to say
Eileen can keep the Texas Luxus ’cause here it’s a beautiful day
My boots are back in Texas but my cowboy hat is on to stay
My toes are hangin’ ten off the board on the waves of Hanalei Bay. Yee-Ha!

You can talk about your Clementine or sing of Rosalee
I’m a happy hapa haole paniolo cowboy livin’ in Kauai
Tomorrow I’ll be surfin’ Poipu and maybe Polihale soon
I’m all brown and there ain’t no blue under Hanalei moon

When I carved my X in the middle of a coconut tree
I told Kolikalani that I liked her mokihana Kauai lei
And I heard through the coconut wireless the other day
That Eileen was back in Childress up by Amarillo way

I’m startin’ all over with Kolikalani in our cottage for two
And here at Hanalei just the skies and the bay are blue
I’m a happy hapa haole paniolo cowboy with a ukulele tune
Kauai’s all green and there ain’t no blue under Hanalei moon
Kauai’s all green and there ain’t no blue under Hanalei moon



Manoa Valley Rainbows (06/26/2002) (#009)

In the valley of the rainbows Manoa’s beauty meets the sky
Like violins and island songs making hearts of lovers sigh
Hawaii has a rainbow in the valley of Manoa where I long
To say how much I love you with this rainbow island song

I dreamed of a rainbow on a dark and cloudy day
You came along and love chased the clouds away
Kahalaopuna smiled down on me and you that day
In the valley of the rainbows our love will forever stay

In the valley of the rainbows, Kahalaopuna smiles for me
Through the clouds and warm Summer rain so Heavenly
I’ll buy for you a rainbow and we’ll sing Manoa’s melody
See the colors of the setting sun paint a lover’s symphony

I dreamed of a rainbow on a dark and cloudy day
You came along and love chased the clouds away
Kahalaopuna smiled down on me and you that day
In the valley of the rainbows our love will forever stay
Manoa valley rainbows shine your love on us today



These Islands Love You Too (06/27/2002) (#010)

From the snows of Mauna Kea to the tropics down below
My love for all these islands runs deeper than you’ll know
Your beauty is the diamonds that sparkle on the bays
When rays of golden moonbeams dance upon your waves

Islands are meant for dreamers and lovers from afar
Moonlit nights and starry lights to wish upon a star
Tonight I’ll hold you in my arms and whisper I love you
Islands sigh for dreamers and these islands love you too

From the mountains to the valleys and out beyoud the reef
I dream of Hawaii’s islands where ohana love runs deep
Your beauty is the people who gathered to these shores
With dreams and love for islands and reef where oceans roar

Islands are meant for dreamers and lovers from afar
Moonlit nights and starry lights to wish upon a star
Tonight I’ll hold you in my arms and whisper I love you
Islands sigh for dreamers and these islands love you too
Islands sigh for dreamers and these islands love you too



Islands in Time – Islands of Mine (07/02/2002) (#011)

Islands in time – these islands of mine
I wonder as I dream of islands in time, these islands of mine
Just when did you arise from blue oceans deep and wide?
When first did rainbows shine upon valleys so sublime?
And majestic bays like sparkling wine in this paradise betide?

Islands in time – these islands of mine
I dream of time when sails first appeared on your horizon.
Battered by the storms the long canoes paddled onward.
Through pounding surf and reef to lagoon of quiet waters.
I heard the chieftan say, there is room for all our brothers.

Islands in time – these islands of mine
Far from Tahiti we have roamed to Havaiki our new home
The canoe has come ashore. We will eat. We have arrived
We will care for this land, welcome others who have strived
Fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers from all islands in time

Islands in time – these islands of mine
Can you find the time to start to love and welcome others?
Your heart can learn to love these islands and your brothers
Cast your love like bread upon these peaceful waters divine
Spread Aloha over islands in time, these islands of mine
Spread Aloha over islands in time, these islands of mine



My Tropitini Little Bikini Gal (07/08/2002) (#016)

When I take my baby to that tropic isle
I know I’m gonna see my little baby smile
She likes to wear that teeny – little bikini style
She’s my tropitini – little bikini gal

Tropitini little bikini – that’s her style
When we’re at the beach she gets a lot of smiles
I make for sure she’s dressed in her coppertone
She likes to have some fun in the tropic zone
She’s my tropitini – little bikini gal

I took her to Tahiti ’bout a month ago
There they wear a two piece with the top piece gone
When we hit the beach she really drew a crowd
She’s my tropitini – little bikini gal

Tropitini little bikini – that’s her style
When we’re at the beach she gets a lot of smiles
I make for sure she’s dressed in her coppertone
She likes to have some fun in the tropic zone
She’s my tropitini – little bikini gal

Now we’re in Hawaii where the weather’s fine
We’re going to the beach and there we’ll spend some time
Soaking up the sun with my coppertone pal
She’s my tropitini – little bikini gal

Tropitini little bikini – that’s her style
When we’re at the beach she gets a lot of smiles
I make for sure she’s dressed in her coppertone
She likes to have some fun in the tropic zone
She’s my tropitini – little bikini gal

When we’re at the beach she likes to have some fun
She likes to play around the sand basking in the sun
And my wife and I adore her. She just turned one!
She’s our tropitini – little bikini pal
She’s my tropitini – little bikini gal. oh yeah



Islands Are But Love Songs (07/03/2002) (#012)

Have you ever dreamed a love song of islands in the sun?
Will she be there to meet you when all is said and done?
I’ll bring my love to you dear, for to me you’re still the one
To watch the golden moon rise with the setting of the sun

Hawaiian island dreamer, I loved you way back when
Days of sun, nights of fun were simple pleasures then
To all those island love songs, it’s time to take a bow
And all you island dreamers, love songs of islands now

Hawaii’s islands are but love songs written in the sand
Of time and on the tropic winds and always on my mind
Like memories of pleasant days and of our times of fun
To watch the golden moon rise with the setting of the sun

Hawaiian island dreamer, I loved you way back when
Days of sun, nights of fun were simple pleasures then
To all those island love songs, it’s time to take a bow
And all you island dreamers, love songs of islands now
And all you island dreamers, love songs of islands now



Island Bound To Lahaina Town (07/04/2002) (#013)

It’s been some time since we hauled that line and sailed away
From Lahaina town to the arctic bound, whaling along the way
Filled that hold, wind turned cold but now we’re Maui bound
The seas are fair, feel the salty air, and pass that rum around

We’re island bound to Lahaina town, to old Lahaina town, I say
We’re island bound to Lahaina town, drinkin’ rum from night ’til day

A whaler’s strife is the bread of life for old salty dogs like me
Months at sea, I long to be on the leeward side of old Maui
The hold is full and the sailors pull those sails up to the crown
The mast is strained, compass trained toward old Lahaina town

We’re island bound to Lahaina town, to old Lahaina town, I say
We’re island bound to Lahaina town, drinkin’ rum from night ’til day

How sweet the smell of the tropic swell with arctic gales behind
Those island girls with smiles like pearls sure are looking fine
Hear their songs, see the throngs on the docks of this old town
Our whaling trip, sailing ship made it back to old Lahaina town

We’re island bound to Lahaina town, to old Lahaina town, I say
We’re island bound to Lahaina town, drinkin’ rum from night ’til day
We’re island bound to Lahaina town, drinkin’ rum from night ’til day

Pretty Island Baby – My Honolulu Girl (07/06/2002) (#014)

Pretty island baby – my Honolulu girl
When I saw you baby – you set my heart awhirl
Remember – I think it was September
You smiled – and I was in the clouds
Pretty island baby – you stand out from the crowds

Honolulu baby – my pretty island girl
Don’t you just say maybe – don’t make my moon turn blue
Will you say – I’m not just your castaway
Be true – I want to love you too
Honolulu baby – I love you, yes I do

Pretty island baby – my Honolulu girl
When you kiss me baby – you know you light my world
I love you – I’m sure you know I do
Kiss me – and say you love me too
Pretty island baby – please say you love me too

Honolulu baby – my pretty island girl
When we go ‘a dancing – the guys are all ‘a glancing
Waikiki – steel guitar and ukulele tune
We’ll see – the golden Honolulu moon
Honolulu baby – you’re my pretty island girl
Pretty island baby – you’re my Honolulu girl



Boogie Woogie Cheeseburger (07/07/2002) (#015)

When you take your honey to a tropical isle
And your baby says she wants to dine in style
Rock ‘N Roll on over for some great mai tais
At the boogie woogie Cheeseburger in Paradise

Cheeseburger in Paradise – breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week
Cheeseburger in Paradise – Rock ‘N Roll music with a tropical beat
Polynesian chicken salad and aloha fish and fries
At the boogie woogie Cheeseburger in Paradise

Love and money, swing your honey and I know she’ll stay
To Rock ‘N Roll in Blue Hawaii, as Gordon Freitas plays
All those lovin’ songs we used to sing that sound so nice
At the boogie woogie Cheeseburger in Paradise

Cheeseburger in Paradise – breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week
Cheeseburger in Paradise – Rock ‘N Roll music with a tropical beat
Polynesian chicken salad and aloha fish and fries
At the boogie woogie Cheeseburger in Paradise
At the boogie woogie Cheeseburger in Paradise



Love Song Dreamer (07/09/2002) (#017)

Can you dream a dream of a love song for me
And pretend it’s still the same as it used to be
When we loved and lived our dream in old Maui
And sang those songs of love for you and me

Love song dreamer, dream a love song for two
Love song dreamer, I love you as I used to do
No pretending, our love was real in old Maui
Now I’m spending, time dreaming of you and me

Does it seem like love was just a dream of mind
And my pretending of love was only marking time
When we loved and lived our dream in old Maui
And sang those songs of love for you and me

Love song dreamer, dream a love song for two
Love song dreamer, I love you as I used to do
No pretending, our love was real in old Maui
Now I’m spending, time dreaming of you and me

Can you dream a dream of a love song for me
And not pretend, but share love as it used to be
When we loved and lived our dream in old Maui
And sang those songs of love for you and me
Love song dreamer, dream a love song for me



Oh Maui Boy (07/10/2002) (#018)

Oh Maui boy, ukuleles are calling
Time and again, just as the evening tide
The time has come, and all the girls are sighing
It’s you, it’s you with whom their hearts reside

Yes, sing again with strummer’s songs of beauty
And then the maiden’s blush of love will show
They’ll love you there in Maui as the rainbows
Oh Maui boy, oh Maui boy, they love you so

And when you sing, then all the girls are sighing
And for you lad, yes glad as they can be
You’ll sing your songs of love in lovely Maui
And kiss the lips of Maui girls with glee

Then you will hear, how soft the ukulele
Brings back my dreams of days in old Maui
So, sing a song to let all know the beauty
A song of peace and love of my Hawaii



My Blue Lagoon (07/10/2002) (#019)

Blue Lagoon, you saw me surfing alone
Without a girl to impart
My love in this island home

Blue Lagoon, you knew I surf here alone for
You knew I still search around for
A girl I could go ashore for

Then suddenly, she surfed up beside me
Her beauty and her charms were there to behold
Then said my girl surfer, “Please, surf with me”
And as we surfed, our lagoon had turned gold.

Blue lagoon, now I’m not surfing alone
Without a girl to impart
My love in this island home
My love in this island home



Sugar Spoon Moon (07/10/2002) (#020)

There’s a sugar spoon and a great big moon
And you’re just my cup of tea.
We’ll stir it sweet ‘n slow, to let love grow
Because I like your company.

Can we take a chance that this romance
Will grow like a big oak tree
While that big old moon, like sweet perfume
Shines it’s love on you and me.

There’s a silver spoon and a yellow moon
And you fit me to a tee.
As warm as June, maybe that big old moon
Will make our love a symphony.

Can we take a chance that this romance
Will grow like a big oak tree
While that big old moon, like sweet perfume
Shines it’s love on you and me.

There’s a sugar spoon and a great big moon
And you’re just my cup of tea.
We’ll stir it sweet ‘n slow, to let love grow
Because I like your company.
We’ll stir it sweet ‘n slow, to let love grow
Because I like your company.



Don’t Make Love Under Coconut Trees (07/11/2002) (#021)

If you wanna make love under coconut trees,
Follow my advice and save your sanity
There might be a monkey in the coconut tree
Throwing down coconuts on you or me

Yes, there might be a monkey in the coconut tree
Throwing down coconuts on you or me
If you wanna live longer, then listen to me
And don’t make love under coconut trees

If you wanna make love under coconut trees
Keep your eyes open in the back of your head
If that monkey takes aim from the top of the tree
Coconut won’t miss and you might be dead

Yes, there might be a monkey in the coconut tree
Throwing down coconuts on you or me
If you wanna live longer, then listen to me
And don’t make love under coconut trees

If you wanna make love under coconut trees
Then pay attention and listen to what I said
There might be a monkey in the coconut tree
Better go back home and make love in bed

Yes, there might be a monkey in the coconut tree
Throwing down coconuts on you or me
If you wanna live longer, then listen to me
And don’t make love under coconut trees
Don’t make love under coconut trees



Tomorrow, A Thousand Years From Now (07/11/2002) (#022)

I loved you yesterday, and I loved you at the dawn
Is our love one that’s here to stay?
Will our love be just as yesterday?
Or tomorrow will our love be gone?

Tomorrow – What about tomorrow?
Will it be a lovely day, or will the dawn bring sorrow?
As surely as I loved you yesterday
The same will be tomorrow

I know that these islands know
Time will never end their rainbows
And just as surely as these islands know
We’ll keep the flames of our love aglow

I loved you yesterday, and I loved you at the dawn
This will be a lovely day, with a thousand more to come
Our love will not grow cold and, my love, I will avow
I will love you still tomorrow, a thousand years from now
I will love you still tomorrow, a thousand years from now



Best of Me – Best of You(07/11/2002) (#023)

If we can sing aloha when we’re in the best of times
Then our love will see us through
Even when we face the worst of times
Love will get the best of me, and I will love the best of you

Can you sing aloha for each other in the best of times?
Don’t forget to live aloha as you face the worst of times
Clouds will come, but then will shine a rainbow too
Love will get the best of me, and I will love the best of you

My heart can only feel the very best from you
That’s why dark clouds will always have a silver line
This feeling of aloha binds together one from two
And I’m sure our love will always stand the test of time

Can you sing aloha for each other in the best of times?
Don’t forget to live aloha as you face the worst of times
Clouds will come, but then will shine a rainbow too
Love will get the best of me, and I will love the best of you
Love will get the best of me, and I will love the best of you



Yellow Hawaiian Ginger Lei(07/12/2002) (#024)

The sweetness of your kiss
And the rythym of you hula sway
Enchants me when you wear
Your yellow Hawaiian ginger lei

The golden love beams
Of a yellow moon on Honolulu bay
Begs me stay and linger
With your yellow Hawaiian ginger lei

Golden is the moon tonight
As we look up at the starry lights
As yellow as your ginger lei
A Hawaiian gift of soft delights

The tropic trade winds caress
Your hair gently as they say
Whispers of the fragrance of
Your yellow Hawaiian ginger lei
Your yellow Hawaiian ginger lei



My Ship Was Coming In (07/12/2002) (#025)

As I rest against the rails of my old porch swing
I can see the sails against the sun that is setting
I think of times back then; then dream of times back when
I was young and knew my ship was coming in

When I was young, I owned the world it seemed
Money and love came easy as I lived my dream
Of ships and sails and places where I had never been
And I always knew that my ship was coming in

I still hear your voice, it seems, and ukulele strings
And I know I owned the joy that only love could bring
You still own my love, but now I live with these memories
Of ships and sails and places where you and I have been

Now, as I rest against the rails of my old porch swing
I can see the sails against my sun that is now setting
I think of times back then; then dream of times back when
I was young and knew my ship was coming in
I think of times back then; then dream of times back when
I was young and knew my ship was coming in



To Whom It May Concern (07/19/2002) (#026)

The message in the bottle was dated July, sixty five
Years had passed and here at last, a message had arrived
Wind and wave brought it here, to rest on the sands of time
I took the message home, and slowly, I read it line by line

The letter was addressed: To whom it may concern
Please read this message, then maybe you will learn
That what goes around, may one day come around
But love of life and a life of love may not be easy found

Sailing solo off the northeast wind, on my ship of dreams
The love of my life and my life of love, sinking so it seems
I give this message to the sea and to whom it may concern
Live your dreams, for love, it seems, may not forever burn

As I read the message in the bottle dated July, sixty five
I didn’t need to read it all, because I knew it line for line
I’m the one who gave it to the sea, to whom it may concern
What went around, came around, to whom it does concern

Live your dreams, for love, it seems, may not forever burn
Read this letter from the sea, and to whom it may concern
If you find a message in a bottle, may be your own, you see
When love goes aground, tides may sink your ship of dreams

When I saw that message in the bottle dated July sixty five
I wondered where he lived and if he was even still alive
Now I know how tide and time can make a heart still yearn
For love of life and a life of love, to whom it may concern
For love of life and a life of love, to whom it may concern



Tropic Angel (07/20/2002) (#027)

My tropic angel, this night I adore you
Please let me be the one to implore you
Let love dance along with this romance
Give love a chance under this tropic moon

These islands sing of love’s melodic line
Play heart strings like love’s sweetest wine
May this night our lives and hearts entwine
And forever, tropic angel, please be mine

Surely, an island angel must have known
Our paths like birds of paradise have flown
To sing of love amid this tropic isle delight
And across a lover’s golden moon tonight

These islands sing of love’s melodic line
Play heart strings like love’s sweetest wine
May this night our lives and hearts entwine
And forever, tropic angel, please be mine
And forever, tropic angel, please be mine



You In The Tropic Sun (07/20/2002) (#028)

All across the islands the palm trees sway
The sky above seems a deeper blue today
And I ‘m with you where the love winds blow
Hawaiian sun and you as in a picture show

I see you in the tropic sun
Love shining from your face
I see you in the tropic sun
A lovely time, a lovely place

See how the easy trade wind fills the sails
Even lovely mermaids playing at the rails
And I’m with you where the love winds blow
Hawaiian sun and you as in a picture show

I see you in the tropic sun
Love shining from your face
I see you in the tropic sun
A lovely time, a lovely place

Free as the wind and as the shorebirds fly
With you my feet are dancing in the sky
And I’m with you where the love winds blow
Hawaiian sun and you as in a picture show

I see you in the tropic sun
Love shining from your face
I see you in the tropic sun
A lovely time, a lovely place

Cottage In The Palms (07/21/2002) (#030)

There’s a cottage in the palms, on the beach at Hana Bay
And with my brown-eyed hula girl is where I want to stay
I’ll be seeing her today and from her love I’ll never stray
And the cottage in the palms, on the beach at Hana Bay

Yes, there’s a cottage in the shade of the palms
And my brown-eyed hula girl on the beach at Hana Bay
Tomorrow she’ll be my wife, then we’ll have a happy life
In the cottage in the palms at Hana Bay

I’m paddling my canoe to reach that blue lagoon
And to see that little cottage at Hana Bay
I’ll see my brown-eyed hula girl, sweetest in the world
And the cottage in the palms at Hana Bay

Yes, there’s a cottage in the shade of the palms
And my brown-eyed hula girl on the beach at Hana Bay
Tomorrow she’ll be my wife, then we’ll have a happy life
In the cottage in the palms at Hana Bay

When comes evening at twilight, golden moon shining bright.
And the bird of paradise sings love songs from the hill.
She’ll know she’s my true love under moonlit stars above.
She’s now my only love and forever always will.

Yes, there’s a cottage in the shade of the palms
And my brown-eyed hula girl on the beach at Hana Bay
Tomorrow she’ll be my wife, then we’ll have a happy life
In the cottage in the palms at Hana Bay
Tomorrow she’ll be my wife, then we’ll have a happy life
In the cottage in the palms at Hana Bay



Bring My Dreams of Love (07/21/2002) (#031)

Tonight as I send up this silent prayer
On a cloud with a silver line it seems
I pray you’ll know how much I care
In love’s lonely memories and dreams

Broken is my heart, arms reach for my beloved
I see your face in clouds with sliver lines it seems
Return, my love and make come true my dreams
Come return to me and bring my dreams of love

Tonight the yellow moon in Hawaii shines
And the twinkle of the stars above still gleam
Your yellow ginger lei is like fragrance divine
But I know tonight you are only a dream

Broken is my heart, arms reach for my beloved
I see your face in clouds with sliver lines it seems
Return, my love and make come true my dreams
Come return to me and bring my dreams of love

Will I ever or will I never more see you my love
I see your face in clouds with sliver lines it seems
I send my prayer on clouds of silent hope above
And wait in love’s lonley memories and dreams

Broken is my heart, arms reach for my beloved
I see your face in clouds with sliver lines it seems
Return, my love and make come true my dreams
Come return to me and bring my dreams of love
Come return to me and bring my dreams of love



Don’t Give Your Heart To A Sailor Man (07/22/2002) (#032)

I beg, my love, don’t fall in love with me, my darlin’
For I’m a sailor man and I might not be ‘a callin’
You’re the sweetest little sweetheart in this world
But don’t give your heart to a sailor, sweetheart girl

I’ve never missed a sailing ship to sail the blue
Or the call of the salty wind upon my mind
I’m bound to hear the whistle of that ship of fools
And the slap of canvas on that rigging line

I beg, my love, don’t fall in love with me, my darlin’
For I’m a sailor man and I might not be ‘a callin’
You’re the sweetest little sweetheart in this world
But don’t give your heart to a sailor, sweetheart girl

I remember that I said I would always love you, darlin’
But a sailor man will always sail with the tide
It’s best that we now part since tears are ‘a startin’
Your happiness would sail with the tide in time

I beg, my love, don’t fall in love with me, my darlin’
For I’m a sailor man and I might not be ‘a callin’
You’re the sweetest little sweetheart in this world
But don’t give your heart to a sailor, sweetheart girl
You’re the sweetest little sweetheart in this world
But don’t give your heart to a sailor, sweetheart girl



Embers of Our Island Love (07/22/2002) (#033)

When I look at these pictures which I have of you,
Rainbows seem to shine from isles of love
But in time I found, love can be a one way street
Like embers of our island love

I miss your garlands of leis and island days
Memories of you and your sweet love
Now a reverie replete are my thoughts of you
Just embers of our island love

Good times were unsurpassed with you, my island lass
When we walked under stars above
These islands were sublime but now they just remind
Of embers of our island love

I miss your garlands of leis and island days
Memories of you and your sweet love
Now a reverie replete are my thoughts of you
Just embers of our island love
Now a reverie replete are my thoughts of you
Just embers of our island love



You Were My Only Love (07/24/2002) (#034)

That moon in the sky is softly weeping
As clouds cover the heavens up above
I lay down my head but not for sleeping
On this island you were my only love

When I awake each and every morning
I remember days when leis draped the bows
Now, sunny days seem like cold December
Leilani I still love you even now

(instrumental)

How I pray for sunny days here again
On this isle in my arms where you belong
This ocean will seem empty until when
You return and be the love of my song

That moon in the sky is softly weeping
As clouds cover the heavens up above
I lay down my head but not for sleeping
On this island you were my only love



Seasons of Island Love (07/24/2002) (#035)

Springtime in Hawaii is filled with flowers
Your attraction was as warm as the Summer sun
In the Fall your love was just like Summer showers
By the Winter your island heart and love I’d won

Like seasons in the islands our love is steady
As in the Springtime, Summer, Fall and Winter too.
And I’m sure our future love is ready
To stay the weather, storms and seasons too

When Spring comes again Hawaiian leis of flowers
Will welcome Summer love as warm as the sun
In the Fall our love will be as strong as a tower
And the Winter will be just like the Summer sun

Springtime in Hawaii is filled with flowers
Your attraction was as warm as the Summer sun
In the Fall your love was just like Summer showers
By the Winter your island heart and love I’d won
By the seasons our island hearts and love are one.



Under Sweet Leilani’s Spell (07/24/2002) (#036)

Toward Mauna Kea I’ll point my compass top
I’ll be sailing fast toward the west
I’ll hoist these sails ’til it’s time to stop
By sweet Leilani whom I love the best

For that island beauty I will pine
It sure does seem like love I can tell
She’s the only girl who’s on my mind
Sweet Leilani’s got me under her sweet spell

Sailing to Hawaii even though I’m all alone
Her island there will be my tropic zone
Those swaying palms will be my island balm
That’s why Hawaii will soon be my new home

For that island beauty I will pine
It sure does seem like love I can tell
She’s the only girl who’s on my mind
Sweet Leilani’s got me under her sweet spell

That’s why Hawaii will soon be my new home
Her island there will be my tropic zone
She’s the only girl for me, I can tell
Sweet Leilani’s got me under her sweet spell
Sweet Leilani’s got me under her sweet spell



Melelani Of Mine (07/24/2002) (#037)

Far away in blue Hawaii
There’s a sweet Melelani
On the shore by the old sugar mill
Every day I still think of her
I know that I love her
She is Melelani of mine

Melelani of mine, as the moon in the heavens
Serenades the stars when they shine
Look at those stars there above you
And know that I love you
You are Melelani of mine

When my mind starts to ponder
My heart starts to wander
To Melelani whom I have to find
Like a line from love’s story
I sware I adore you
You are Melelani of mine

Melelani of mine, as the moon in the heavens
Serenades the stars when they shine
Look at those stars there above you
And know that I love you
You are Melelani of mine

Look at those stars there above you
And know that I love you
You are Melelani of mine



In Hawaii Where I Belong (07/25/2002) (#038)

Take me back to Hawaii, that’s where I’m bound
I’ve been on this mainland too long
Back to my wahini island girl I found
This island boy, in Hawaii is where I belong

Seems like yesterday we played at Waikiki
Sharing dreams of island life and plans
But I was foolish when I left my sweet Lalani
To chase empty rainbows like a business man

Take me back to Hawaii, that’s where I’m bound
I’ve been on this mainland too long
Back to my wahini island girl I found
This island boy, in Hawaii is where I belong

I moved to the mainland and got my union card
Spent all my money I made at this railroad yard
Money can’t buy love or the one I want to see
My Hawaiian island girl, yes my sweet Lalani

Take me back to Hawaii, that’s where I’m bound
I’ve been on this mainland too long
Back to my wahini island girl I found
This island boy, in Hawaii is where I belong

I turn my thoughts to the islands and get underway
To my girl in Hawaii and her home down by the bay
When I get back I will never more go away
Back in Hawaii with my sweet Lalani I will stay

Take me back to Hawaii, that’s where I’m bound
I’ve been on this mainland too long
Back to my wahini island girl I found
This island boy, in Hawaii is where I belong
This island boy, in Hawaii where I belong



Paradise On Earth With You (07/25/2002) (#039)

When I saw you at the luau at Germaine’s
Even trade winds said hello just like a weather vane
We strolled along the sands and watched the sunset hues
Hawaii is a paradise on earth when I’m with you
Hawaii is a paradise on earth when I’m with you

Tonight we’ll make use of that old porch swing
I’ll play my guitar softly while I listen to you sing
I like these happy days because you make me happy too
Hawaii is a paradise on earth when I’m with you
Hawaii is a paradise on earth when I’m with you

When you said you loved me, I said I loved you too
Let’s paddle through life together in our own canoe
I remember when I saw you at the luau at Germaine’s
Loveliness and friendly smile as sweet as sugar cane
Hawaii is a paradise on earth when I’m with you
Hawaii is a paradise on earth when I’m with you



This Beating Heart of Mine (07/25/2002) (#040)

I’ll give you rainbows shining through the rain
I’ll place on your finger love, a wedding ring
And I’ll give to you this beating heart of mine
Just say you’ll love me now and for all time

With my island girl I’m in love day in and out
She fills my life with cheer when we’re about
Birds of paradise will spread their wings above
And even tell the shorebirds of our island love

I’ll give you rainbows shining through the rain
I’ll place on your finger love, a wedding ring
And I’ll give to you this beating heart of mine
Just say you’ll love me now and for all time

Take to your heart my words of love for you
In time you’ll know that all you heard is true
We’ll face the future like the tropic breeze
Easy on my mind with love for you and me

I’ll give you rainbows shining through the rain
I’ll place on your finger love, a wedding ring
And I’ll give to you this beating heart of mine
Just say you’ll love me now and for all time
And I’ll give to you this beating heart of mine
Just say you’ll love me now and for all time



My Hawaii Blue (07/26/2002) (#041)

If I were in Lahaina town or Honolulu bay
I’d climb aboard a whaling ship and then I’d sail away

Sail upon the ocean with a salty crew
But then bring me back to my Hawaii blue

Lani is my sweetheart, smile is like the sun
Her love I’ll serenade when my whaling time is done

Sail upon the ocean with a salty crew
But then bring me back to my Hawaii blue

Don’t you cry now, Lani when I have to go
I’ll return from whaling ’cause I love you so

Sail upon the ocean with a salty crew
But then bring me back to my Hawaii blue

I’ll meet you in Lahaina or Honolulu bay
I love you more than ever and with you I will stay

Sail upon the ocean with a salty crew
But then bring me back to my Hawaii blue
Sail upon the ocean with a salty crew
But then bring me back to my Hawaii blue



Back To Lovely Maui (07/26/2002) (#042)

When I left my lovely Maui
Liliana said she loved me true
So now I have to find out how
To get back to my Hawaii blue

Soon I’ll return to lovely Maui
And there I’ll see my Liliana too
Back to my Maui I’ll be going
Where Hawaiian skies are blue

Liliana is Maui’s lovely beauty
Like the islands where I’m from
Back to my Maui I’ll be going
From it’s shores I’ll no more roam

Soon I’ll return to lovely Maui
And there I’ll see my Liliana too
Back to my Maui I’ll be going
Where Hawaiian skies are blue

Liliana I daily think about you
I hear our love song every night
See the rainbows shining on you
Headed back to Maui’s shore tonight

Soon I’ll return to lovely Maui
And there I’ll see my Liliana too
Back to my Maui I’ll be going
Where Hawaiian skies are blue
Back to my Maui I’ll be going
Where Hawaiian skies are blue



Lonely Kauai Girl (07/26/2002) (#043)

Kauai girl, are you lonely tonight
To be alone now just can’t be right
That golden moon is shining for you
A Kauai boy just might be lonely too

On an island ‘neath the pale moon glow
In a cottage where love just cannot grow
Waits a Kauai girl this midsummer night
For a Kauai boy to make her heart delight

Kauai girl, you look lonely, it seems
Kauai boy, don’t miss your island dream
When the moon is shining so bright
Kauai boy, go make her your delight

You’re away from your island home
And the island girl who loves you so
You, too are lonely when you roam
To your Kauai girl you must now go

Kauai girl, are you lonely tonight
To be alone now just can’t be right
That golden moon is shining for you
A Kauai boy just might be lonely too
That golden moon is shining for you
A Kauai boy just might be lonely too



My Pua Hawaiian Tuberose (07/26/2002) (#044)

Way over in the Hawaiian islands
Down by the beach where the coconuts grow
Lives my Leilani of the islands
She’s my pua Hawaiian tuberose

Play ukulele and listen to my mele
Of island love that I know is true
About my Leilani over in Hawaii
Hawaiian rose of the ocean blue

Way over in the Hawaiian islands
Down by the beach where the coconuts grow
Lives my Leilani of the islands
She’s my pua Hawaiian tuberose

Her mother and her father loved one another
A beautiful childhood she did live
That child is now a lady like no other
A rose of Hawaii they did give

Way over in the Hawaiian islands
Down by the beach where the coconuts grow
Lives my Leilani of the islands
She’s my pua Hawaiian tuberose

We used to sing island meles together
Her smile was just like a work of art
I just can’t wait to go and tell her
She’s my island rose with a golden heart

Way over in the Hawaiian islands
Down by the beach where the coconuts grow
Lives my Leilani of the islands
She’s my pua Hawaiian tuberose
She’s my pua Hawaiian tuberose



Set Me Adrift On An Island Shift (07/26/2002) (#045)

I’ve worked day shift and I’ve worked night shift
And I’ve worked every shift between
Just set me adrift on an island shift
With a fishing pole and old blue jeans

The day shift boss threw me for a loss
So I drove my stick shift into town
There I applied for a swing shift ride
On a forklift, paycheck going down

I’ve worked day shift and I’ve worked night shift
And I’ve worked every shift between
Just set me adrift on an island shift
With a fishing pole and old blue jeans

I quit that job and I worked night shift
To watch doppler shift on a radar ship
Now I swing evening shift and it sure is nice
Heading west toward Hawaiian paradise

I’ve worked day shift and I’ve worked night shift
And I’ve worked every shift between
Just set me adrift on an island shift
With a fishing pole and old blue jeans

No more night shift for a working stiff
And no more boss living by the clock
Trade this working ship for a fishing skiff
In Hawaii I’ll just be fishing off the dock

I’ve worked day shift and I’ve worked night shift
And I’ve worked every shift between
Just set me adrift on an island shift
With a fishing pole and old blue jeans
Just set me adrift on an island shift
With a fishing pole and old blue jeans



Mama’s Coconut Pies (07/26/2002) (#046)

A rusted tin roof cabin by the old sugar mill
Reminds me of Hawaiian island ties
We were poor but happy on a twenty dollar bill
I remember eating Mama’s coconut pies

Daddy worked hard in fields cutting cane
At the time we kids just didn’t realize
The love they had to withstand the strain
I remember eating Mama’s coconut pies

Mama was an island lady of the working class
She would laugh but I also hear her cries
Wash day was long getting out the red dirt grass
I remember eating Mama’s coconut pies

My Daddy wished for an easier life
But sugar mill work held no surprise
Kahuku, Hawaii had it’s joys and strife
I remember eating Mama’s coconut pies

A rusted tin roof cabin by the old sugar mill
Reminds me of Hawaiian island ties
We were poor but happy on a twenty dollar bill
I remember eating Mama’s coconut pies
I remember eating Mama’s coconut pies



Old Sugar Mills (07/27/2002) (#047)

I’ve heard some songs about sugar mills
And they always seem to be quite old
There must have been a time when still
They pressed that cane and sugar sold.

Sugar mill on the hill, why are you so old
Are you hiding stories that are yet to be told
Of island life of work and cane press skills
Or just another song about old sugar mills

I know of one that’s on Oahu’s shores
Over by Waialua on the north shore side.
Old Waialua Sugar Mill has all the lore
Of work and dreams that time can’t hide.

Sugar mill on the hill, why are you so old
Are you hiding stories that are yet to be told
Of island life of work and cane press skills
Or just another song about old sugar mills

Over on Kauai, flower island paradise
Koloa mill pressed cane in 1835
Lives and loves lost in red fields of time
Now just a song like a lullabye rhyme

Sugar mill on the hill, why are you so old
Are you hiding stories that are yet to be told
Of island life of work and cane press skills
Or just another song about old sugar mills
Or just another song about old sugar mills



Island Side of Life (07/27/2002) (#048)

Go the sunny side of the rainbow
Where you can find a pot of gold
And stay on the island side of life
And stay on the island side of life

If life’s problems just make you frown
And people only make you sigh
Sail you ship to Hawaiian skies
A sunny paradise won’t let you down

Go the sunny side of the rainbow
Where you can find a pot of gold
And stay on the island side of life
And stay on the island side of life

You can change your pace of life
Get rid of all that strain and strife
Trade your suit for island clothes
Feel the sand between your toes

Go the sunny side of the rainbow
Where you can find a pot of gold
And stay on the island side of life
And stay on the island side of life

I left the rat race far behind me
For love and life under my rainbow
Take my advice and cross the sea
Come to a paradise from long ago

Go the sunny side of the rainbow
Where you can find a pot of gold
And stay on the island side of life
And stay on the island side of life



Salty Waikiki Waltz (07/27/2002) (#049)

I was reeling in my marlin to the Waikiki waltz
When an old salt just came up to me
I went to show him of my marlin and while we were fishing
That old salt stole my marlin from me

I can still see the sight and the Waikiki waltz
That old salt knows how much I lost
When I lost my great big marlin the day they were playing
The bonnie fair Waikiki waltz

Now I’m fishing for another to the fair Waikiki waltz
Don’t talk to me ’cause I know your game
I won’t tell you of my marlin til my bait is drying
This one does not have your name

I can still see the sight and the Waikiki waltz
That old salt knows how much I lost
When I lost my great big marlin the day they were playing
The bonnie fair Waikiki waltz
When I lost my great big marlin the day they were playing
The bonnie fair Waikiki waltz



Falls of Clyde (07/27/2002) (#050)

From the great Port Glasgow to the blue Honolulu bay
The Falls of Clyde was handsome sailing proud upon the waves
Her masts are tall and lofty and she sailed the oceans wide
She’s the pride of the Maritime Center, the gallant Falls of Clyde

Her sails will make you tingle with pride just like before
When captain William Matson hauled sugar from Hawaii’s shores
Hear those winds ‘a howling through the sails spread out wide
You’re sailing over the ocean on the gallant Falls of Clyde

She came from Scotland’s Lanark Clyde Valley in 1878
The great clipper masts are the four waterfalls of Clyde they say
Her maiden voyage from Greenock in April 1879
Took her to Karachi and London on down the line

Her sails will make you tingle with pride just like before
When captain William Matson hauled sugar from Hawaii’s shores
Hear those winds ‘a howling through the sails spread out wide
You’re sailing over the ocean on the gallant Falls of Clyde

From Rangoon to Calcutta and Bombay by the way
From New York to Frisco and Seattle’s salty spray
From New Zealand to Alaska and blue water ports of call
This gallant ship rode the waves with masts above them all

Her sails will make you tingle with pride just like before
When captain William Matson hauled sugar from Hawaii’s shores
Hear those winds ‘a howling through the sails spread out wide
You’re sailing over the ocean on the gallant Falls of Clyde
Hear those winds ‘a howling through the sails spread out wide
You’re sailing over the ocean on the gallant Falls of Clyde



Dance In The Moonlight With Me (07/27/2002) (#051)

Dance in the moonlight that shows me your charms
Dance in the moonlight with me
Read me the chapters of this fairy tale book
And dance in the moonlight with me

Our glances together sings an island reprise
A paradise unveiled has come true
When my arms hold you it’s really no surprise
Love dances on a musical scale for two

Dance in the moonlight that shows me your charms
Dance in the moonlight with me
Read me the chapters of this fairy tale book
And dance in the moonlight with me

Worries and cares seem to have all taken wing
Since you appeared on my horizon so new
Now that your moon and mine are finally one
A paradise unveiled has come true

Dance in the moonlight that shows me your charms
Dance in the moonlight with me
Read me the chapters of this fairy tale book
And dance in the moonlight with me



Promenade Dance (07/27/2002) (#052)

This is the magical hour we’ve been waiting for
Someone’s playing our song, so why go ashore
The promenade deck and love’s moon is here for
Dancing with angels and you’re the one I adore

This promenade dance is a moment in time
Dancing with you is a like songs played divine
Guitars and violins from the island so near
Say love shouldn’t wait under the moon’s chandelier

This is the magical hour we’ve been waiting for
Someone’s playing our song, so why go ashore
The promenade deck and love’s moon is here for
Dancing with angels and you’re the one I adore

So, let us dance darling when night is so warm
This moment is ever love’s portrait of charms
The moonlight is ageless and our love is new
I’ll love you forever and we’ll dance this dance too

This is the magical hour we’ve been waiting for
Someone’s playing our song, so why go ashore
The promenade deck and love’s moon is here for
Dancing with angels and you’re the one I adore
The promenade deck and love’s moon is here for
Dancing with angels and you’re the one I adore



This Dream Comes From You (07/28/2002) (#053)

The moon on the bay and the stars in the sky
Words whispered soft as an island lullabye
Last night was a dream with an ending come true
Tonight now I know that this dream comes from you

As we were there standing, two in the sand
The palms seemed to do their dance in the wind
Last night I was enraptured by your mystic charms
Tonight may this dream of our love have no end

The moon on the bay and the stars in the sky
Words whispered soft as an island lullabye
Last night was a dream with an ending come true
Tonight now I know that this dream comes from you

You were there with me as I held your hand
The wind in the palms seemed to understand
That magical night was indeed as you charms
And I was enraptured by you in my arms

The moon on the bay and the stars in the sky
Words whispered soft as an island lullabye
Last night was a dream with an ending come true
Tonight now I know that this dream comes from you
Last night was a dream with an ending come true
Tonight now I know that this dream comes from you



Hana Bay Love (07/28/2002) (#054)

That rainbow’s hue shines golden in the rain
I love you are words you’ll hear again
No clouds of gloom can shade our love this day
I’m coming back to be with you at Hana bay

Oceans wide can’t keep our love apart
Your island love and mine is from the heart
I’ll buy you the moon and I won’t be undersold
Even if I have to find that rainbow’s pot of gold

That rainbow’s hue shines golden in the rain
I love you are words you’ll hear again
No clouds of gloom can shade our love this day
I’m coming back to be with you at Hana bay

Our island dreams will weather all life’s storms
Ohana love will not be just lukewarm
Like oceans deep and mountains in the sky
You’re my island love and love will never die

That rainbow’s hue shines golden in the rain
I love you are words you’ll hear again
No clouds of gloom can shade our love this day
I’m coming back to be with you at Hana bay

That rainbow’s hue shines golden in the rain
I love you are words you’ll hear again
No clouds of gloom can shade our love this day
I’m coming back to be with you at Hana bay



Soft As The Harbor Moon (07/28/2002) (#055)

On the dock she was looking at the harbor moon
She looked just like an angel in the month of June
I heard the sweetest voice sing an old familiar tune
Of island life and love as soft as the harbor moon

Harbor moon, I love the way you shine
Harbor moon, would you please make her mine
I love the way she sings that old familiar tune
Of island life and love as soft as the harbor moon

Now just as soon as I can find out how to say
I love you and I want to love you every day
I’ll ask her name and then I’ll buy for her real soon
A wedding ring and then I’ll buy that harbor moon

Harbor moon, I love the way you shine
Harbor moon, would you please make her mine
I love the way she sings that old familiar tune
Of island life and love as soft as the harbor moon

When the palm trees wave their trade winds hello
And the stars above send their love light here below
I’ll ask this island angel here in this month of June
To shine her love on me just like that harbor moon

Harbor moon, I love the way you shine
Harbor moon, would you please make her mine
I love the way she sings that old familiar tune
Of island life and love as soft as the harbor moon

Harbor moon, I love the way you shine
Harbor moon, would you please make her mine
I love the way she sings that old familiar tune
Of island life and love as soft as the harbor moon



Love like A Monsoon Gale (07/28/2002) (#056)

When this old ship sails into port again I’ll be the first to disembark
Bring the band and play it grand because there’s no question mark
I’ve been thinking of you and your sweet love since the day I sailed
I’m coming ashore and I know our love will be like a moonsoon gale

I got your letters from the sunny isles and now I’m ready to see
If the love you said was just in my head or is it waiting there for me
I wrote you back with all the love I had after months before the mast
The ship’s hold is full and my pockets too and I’ll be with you at last

I’ve been thinking of you and your sweet love since the day I sailed
I’m coming ashore and I know our love will be like a moonsoon gale

Like the palm trees sway by the end of the quay so my head will be
When I spend my principle sum on dance and rum the night away
I’ll save enough to buy that cabin for two ‘neath the palm tree grove
Sailings done and it’s time for fun and settle down with you my love

I’ve been thinking of you and your sweet love since the day I sailed
I’m coming ashore and I know our love will be like a moonsoon gale

I left my darlin’ at the end of the quay to go and sail the ocean blue
Now I’m headed back to Hawaii to trade this ship for a little canoe
I see the flower in her beautiful hair and smell the perfume of her lei
Bring the band and play it grand because her island’s where I’ll stay

I’ve been thinking of you and your sweet love since the day I sailed
I’m coming ashore and I know our love will be like a moonsoon gale

When this old ship sails into port again I’ll be the first to disembark
Bring the band and play it grand because there’s no question mark
I’ve been thinking of you and your sweet love since the day I sailed
I’m coming ashore and I know our love will be like a moonsoon gale



How Sweet Is Your Love (07/28/2002) (#057)

You might just catch my mind wandering
And wondering how such a peaceful time
Could come my way and make me sing
How sweet is your love to me like wine

When we go strolling in the moonlight
Down by the sea at old Lahaina town
I like to feel the trade wind breezes slight
And picture you, love in a wedding gown

You might just catch my mind wandering
And wondering how such a peaceful time
Could come my way and make me sing
How sweet is your love to me like wine

I gaze at the stars twinkling bright in the sky
And at the yellow moon that’s full above
And I’m glad that you and I see eye to eye
About this island place and our place of love

You might just catch my mind wandering
And wondering how such a peaceful time
Could come my way and make me sing
How sweet is your love to me like wine
How sweet is your love to me like wine
How sweet is your love to me like wine



Magic Island Dream (07/28/2002) (#058)

Magic island, can you shine love’s beacon light
Magic island, please dont hide a lover’s scheme
I know she’s there in your paradise tonight
Or is this just another magic island dream

Love has come and then it’s gone like a setting sun
Crazy days and thoughtless acts put love on the run
Now I’ll try to win you back with tender loving care
Magic island memories of us when we were there

Magic island, can you shine love’s beacon light
Magic island, please dont hide a lover’s scheme
I know she’s there in your paradise tonight
Or is this just another magic island dream

I’ve seen a lot of islands while basking in the sun
Lazy days and memories of nights filled with fun
But no island can compare to my castle in the air
Magic island dream, the one where you are there

Magic island, can you shine love’s beacon light
Magic island, please dont hide a lover’s scheme
I know she’s there in your paradise tonight
Or is this just another magic island dream
I know she’s there in your paradise tonight
Or is this just another magic island dream



Love And A Fishing Net (07/28/2002) (#059)

These worn out shoes and island blues
It’s enough to make an island man regret
Moving to the mainland with the view
Of money over love and a fishing net

I’ve got these island blues and a pair of worn out shoes
Traveling this mainland fast after money that wont last
Take me back to my island home where life is not fast yet
And give me love over money, love and a fishing net

These worn out shoes and island blues
It’s enough to make an island man regret
Moving to the mainland with the view
Of money over love and a fishing net

All that’s here are mem’ries of you, and that’s why I’m blue
I need a mooring mast so I can cast this life into the sea
Get me off this beaten track, white collar character set
And give me love over money, love and a fishing net

These worn out shoes and island blues
It’s enough to make an island man regret
Moving to the mainland with the view
Of money over love and a fishing net

I’m going back soon to my island girl and trade these shoes
For a pair of bare feet then meet for lunch at Duke’s canoe
Can’t wait to get back to my island home where life is best
And give me love over money, yes, love and a fishing net

These worn out shoes and island blues
It’s enough to make an island man regret
Moving to the mainland with the view
Of money over love and a fishing net
Give me love and a fishing net
Give me love and a fishing net
Give me love and a fishing net



Lovely Sweet Lalani (07/28/2002) (#060)

If you see Lalani, tell her I love her so
When she goes ‘a strolling, in the golden glow

Along the beach at sunset, people whisper low
There goes lovely Lalani, and he loves her so

I think I see my baby, strolling here to me
I know her lovely smile is, pretty as can be

I’m walking in a daydream, and I’ll dream real slow
Here comes my lovely Lalani, and I do love her so

Look at you my baby, with a lovely tan so brown
Eyes bright as diamonds, makes my heart melt down

I’m walking in a daydream, but I don’t want to sleep
I want to be here with you, because my love runs deep

I’ve got a ring that fits your finger, that I’ll give to you
And soon lovely Lalani, I’ll hear you say I do

When you see Lalani, you know just why I’ll tell
My lovely sweet Lalani, we’ll hear that wedding bell

When you see Lalani, you know just why I’ll tell
My lovely sweet Lalani, we’ll hear that wedding bell



Island Songs With You (07/28/2002) (#061)

It takes an island man to sing an island song
Play in island sand, with ukulele stroll along
This mainland’s blue, can’t get away too soon
I’m coming back to sing my island songs with you

It takes an island man to sing an island song
Island girl I’m coming back where I belong
I’m on this mainland without an island tune
I’ll be back to sing you songs of islands soon

It takes an island man to sing an island song
Play in island sand, with ukulele stroll along
This mainland’s blue, can’t get away too soon
I’m coming back to sing my island songs with you

It takes an island man to sing an island song
Can’t sing island songs working all day long
I need a little rest and so I’ll be there soon
We’ll both sing island songs to ukulele tunes

It takes an island man to sing an island song
Play in island sand, with ukulele stroll along
This mainland’s blue, can’t get away too soon
I’m coming back to sing my island songs with you

I went across the ocean to work for wages dear
Here they sing the blues and they cry in their beer
I know I’ve made mistakes but this is all so blue
I’m coming back to sing my island songs with you

It takes an island man to sing an island song
Play in island sand, with ukulele stroll along
This mainland’s blue, can’t get away too soon
I’m coming back to sing my island songs with you
I’m coming back to sing my island songs with you



Pieces Of My Heart (07/29/2002) (#062)

They’re picking pineapples in the valleys on Oahu
And paniolo cowboys punching cattle on Hawaii
The island boys are here today but gone to Maui
And I’m picking up the pieces of my heart you broke for me

When it’s picking time in Hawaii, they only pick the best
But it’s crying time in Hawaii, my heart is dispossessed
There’s blue grass in Kentucky and their moon is blue
Now what’s that got to do with my broken heart and you

They’re picking pineapples in the valleys on Oahu
And paniolo cowboys punching cattle on Hawaii
The island boys are here today but gone to Maui
And I’m picking up the pieces of my heart you broke for me

I loved you from the very start on the beach at Waikiki
You promised me your heart and I thought I had the key
But now I’m not so sure that you were meant for me
And I’m picking up the pieces of my heart you broke for me

They’re picking pineapples in the valleys on Oahu
And paniolo cowboys punching cattle on Hawaii
The island boys are here today but gone to Maui
And I’m picking up the pieces of my heart you broke for me

They’re picking pineapples in the valleys on Oahu
And paniolo cowboys punching cattle on Hawaii
The island boys are here today but gone to Maui
And I’m picking up the pieces of my heart you broke for me




Maiden of Island Delights (08/01/2002) (#063)

Liliana, your beauty is deeper than beauty should be
A beauty that only island angels can see
I look at you, and it’s no surprise
A vision of love that can’t be denied

Liliana, Hawaiian beauty delight
Aloha state’s maiden of island delights
Liliana, Hawaiian beauty delight
Aloha state’s maiden of island delights

Liliana, your beauty is deeper than beauty should be
Deep is my love that only angels can see
I hold you close and hear love’s reprise
Envision an island with an angel tonight

Liliana, Hawaiian beauty delight
Aloha state’s maiden of island delights
Liliana, Hawaiian beauty delight
Aloha state’s maiden of island delights

Liliana, your beauty is deeper than beauty should be
A treasure of love on an island for me
I hear the songs of Hawaiian guitars
Trade winds of love calling me from afar

Liliana, Hawaiian beauty delight
Aloha state’s maiden of island delights
Liliana, Hawaiian beauty delight
Aloha state’s maiden of island delights



Salt Me Away (08/01/2002) (#064)

Today is just another day, fishing in my trawler
Still pulling the nets in my old Hana Bay hauler
When morning comes, to Hana Bay I’ll go my way
When I die, at Hana Bay just salt me away

Hana Bay, where the Mahi play
Hana Bay, on a Summer day
I’m a fisher man and I have a plan
Salt me away like an island man

I don’t have a boss but I still get paid
That’s why I turn that rudder blade
At Hana Bay is where I’ll spend the day
When I die, at Hana Bay just salt me away

Hana Bay, where the Mahi play
Hana Bay, on a Summer day
I’m a fisher man and I have a plan
Salt me away like an island man

I can’t explain why, forever and a day
I’ve fished away my life at old Hana Bay
But I’ll tell you this, here is where I’ll stay
When I die, at Hana Bay just salt me away

Hana Bay, where the Mahi play
Hana Bay, on a Summer day
I’m a fisher man and I have a plan
Salt me away like an island man

Today it’s raining but I’m feeling fine
I’m pulling nets from the salty brine
I’m fishing away on a tropic day
When I die, at Hana Bay just salt me away

Hana Bay, where the Mahi play
Hana Bay, on a Summer day
I’m a fisher man and I have a plan
Salt me away like an island man
I’m a fisher man and I have a plan
Salt me away like an island man



Bring Back My Island Dove (08/02/2002) (#065)

Far away in Hawaii, there’s a symphony
A mele of old Waikiki
Those blue Hawaiian nights shine with skies of love
Under tropic stars there up above

There I saw my love move like a hula show
Dancing in my eyes like a dove
Now my love has gone just as the trade winds blow
And faded like the yellow moon above

Tropic moon, you must surrender, and please take a part
In bringing back my love, my dove of Waikiki
I know you can engender, her love as at the start
Bring back my island dove to me, to me

Those spoken words of love for you, I know
Are still alive even though my love has gone
Bring back that moonlit night in Hawaii
And bring back my island dove to me

Those spoken words of love for you, I know
Are still alive even though my love has gone
Bring back that moonlit night in Hawaii
And bring back my island dove to me
And bring back my island dove to me
And bring back my island dove to me



Gentle As The Palm Trees Sway (08/03/2002) (#066)

Gentle as the palm trees sway tonight
I’m sure this love for two will turn out right
Holding hands says more than words can say
As trade winds bring to us our wedding day

Softly does the trade winds blow tonight
As some midsummer dream like breezes flow
Around our love that I must hold so tight
Within my heart just like love’s afterglow

Gentle as the palm trees sway tonight
I’m sure this love for two will turn out right
Holding hands says more than words can say
As trade winds bring to us our wedding day

When I see the sun set in the western sky
Another night has come when love sees eye to eye
Trade winds of love blow softly as we yearn
Another night to dream ’til point of no return

Gentle as the palm trees sway tonight
I’m sure this love for two will turn out right
Holding hands says more than words can say
As trade winds bring to us our wedding day
As trade winds bring to us our wedding day



Their Island Paradise (08/03/2002) (#067)

See that long outrigger gliding, riding on the waves
See those paddles sliding, blue water ways they pave
Heading for the island, where they will reach their prize
Home is where the heart is, an island paradise

Blue water paradise, oceans filled with fun
Island paradise, rainbows in the sun
They’ll paddle their canoe like a homing isle device
To Hawaii where their heart is, their island paradise

Home is where the heart is, an island paradise
Hawaii’s where their heart says, here find peaceful skies
Stop and view the beauty of these islands in the sun
Home is where the heart is and Hawaii can’t be outdone

Blue water paradise, oceans filled with fun
Island paradise, rainbows in the sun
They’ll paddle their canoe like a homing isle device
To Hawaii where their heart is, their island paradise

Fourteen knots an hour, outrigger’s gaining speed
Hear the slap of paddles, wide oceans fast recede
Strong arms have the power to reach their island prize
Home is where the heart is, an island paradise

Blue water paradise, oceans filled with fun
Island paradise, rainbows in the sun
They’ll paddle their canoe like a homing isle device
To Hawaii where their heart is, their island paradise
To Hawaii where their heart is, their island paradise



Polynesian Blue (08/03/2002) (#068)

Play that guitar slow, listen to it cryin’
I lost my island girl and now my heart is dyin’
Polynesian blue, my tears have come from you
So play my favorite tune, it’s Polynesian blue

Won’t you play that guitar slow, I know that I’ll be cryin’
Play that ukulele ’til I go, I know my heart is dyin’
My polynesian girl said her move was overdue
So play my favorite tune, it’s Polynesian blue

Play that guitar slow, listen to it cryin’
I lost my island girl and now my heart is dyin’
Polynesian blue, my tears have come from you
So play my favorite tune, it’s Polynesian blue

Polynesian blue, I thought you were my friend
Polynesian blue, can you please my heart now mend
I need to know, when to stop this cryin’
And can you please stop my heart from dyin’

Play that guitar slow, listen to it cryin’
I lost my island girl and now my heart is dyin’
Polynesian blue, my tears have come from you
So play my favorite tune, it’s Polynesian blue

My island girl has moved, I don’t know where
Won’t you play that guitar slow while I’m still here
I know I’m not supposed to cry in my Tahiti beer
Even cowboys in Hawaii need some blue Hawaii cheer

Play that guitar slow, listen to it cryin’
I lost my island girl and now my heart is dyin’
Polynesian blue, my tears have come from you
So play my favorite tune, it’s Polynesian blue
So play my favorite tune, it’s Polynesian blue
So play my favorite tune, it’s Polynesian blue



Carmelita, Still (08/03/2002) (#069)

Livin’ on heart aches, scotch whisky will I take
To all of those purists who don’t have to toil
On workin’ the real thing, wearing a nose ring
With silly opinions that make me recoil

Chasin’ away the pain of Carmelita, still
Lurchin’ like a geological fault
It’s a crying shame, my head is like a pin-ball game
And I know, it’s this hot toddy’s fault

I know it’s high treason, to drink in dry season
My outrigger canoe is in judicial review
I thought it was so cute, to paddle in my birthday suit
How I landed in jail, I wish that I knew

Chasin’ away the pain of Carmelita, still
Lurchin’ like a geological fault
It’s a crying shame, my head is like a pin-ball game
And I know, it’s this hot toddy’s fault

Threw up when the cop stopped, my canoe at the dock shop
And my head was prime news in the paper back home
Now I lose legal tender, and I have to surrender
My outrigger canoe, or they’ll hang me on the lawn

Chasin’ away the pain of Carmelita still
Lurchin’ like a geological fault
It’s a crying shame, my head is like a pin-ball game
And I know, it’s this hot toddy’s fault
It’s a crying shame, my head is like a pin-ball game
And I know, it’s this hot toddy’s fault



Love Fresh Like Morning Sky (08/03/2002) (#070)

Daydreaming in the sunshine of your sweet love for me
Is like the island breezes that wave as they go by
Daydreaming in the sunshine of my sweet love for you
Awakens deep within me love fresh like morning sky

No one can delay this love I have to give you
Sunny isles portray that this will be a special day
No song could ever tell of my feelings just for you
But I’ll sing you island songs full of love anyway

Daydreaming in the sunshine of your sweet love for me
Is like the island breezes that wave as they go by
Daydreaming in the sunshine of my sweet love for you
Awakens deep within me love fresh like morning sky

If I had to walk forever just to find you
I’m sure that I would walk that extra mile
And if I get to wish upon a star just for two
I would wish for sunshine to make you smile

Daydreaming in the sunshine of your sweet love for me
Is like the island breezes that wave as they go by
Daydreaming in the sunshine of my sweet love for you
Awakens deep within me love fresh like morning sky
Daydreaming in the sunshine of my sweet love for you
Awakens deep within me love fresh like morning sky



Sweet Lanilei (08/04/2002) (#071)

Listen to a song about a Hawaiian yellow ginger lei
A handsome young Hawaiian warrior and sweet Lanilei
Way across the ocean over in Hawaiian isles
Lanilei and the warrior wore Hawaiian smiles

Every night beneath the yellow moon above
The young Hawaiian warrior pledged undying love
His love would last forever ’til his dying day
To show his love was true he gave a ginger lei

He gave sweet Lanilei his Hawaiian yellow ginger lei
To place in her hair for his voyage to war that day
He gave sweet Lanilei his Hawaiian yellow ginger lei
Boarded his canoe and paddled off to war that day

The warriors paddled hard to the next campaign
The chieftains to the North were on the path again
He had kissed his Lanilei goodby and he paddled away
Promised her this time he’d come back to stay

The island war was over and he paddled back home
But other island warriors had arrived before his dawn
Beneath the tree where he had kissed goodby sweet Lanilei
There hung on a grave was his yellow Hawaiian ginger lei

He gave sweet Lanilei his yellow Hawaiian ginger lei
To place in her hair for his voyage to war that day
He gave sweet Lanilei his yellow Hawaiian ginger lei



Hula Girl Dreams (08/04/2002) (#072)

Last night I dreamed a song of love, that seemed close at hand
I was sitting at a luau, on an island in the sun and sand
I knew my dream had traveled, from afar with the ocean tide
I saw a lovely hula girl dressed in Hawaiian island style

I knew the meaning of my dream that night, written in the sand
I would find true love if I would only go, to that island land
I said goodby to my dear old mom, sailed west to the girl I know
That hula girl in my dreams over where, the island trade winds blow

As I watched the eastern sunrise, on islands anchored in the sea
I knew that I had found beauty, and love that the world can’t see
The song of love I was dreaming, was on the hula maiden’s smile
I have my pretty island girl, dressed in Hawaiian hula style

I knew the meaning of my dream that night, written in the sand
I would find true love if I would only go, to that island land
I said goodby to my dear old mom, sailed west to the girl I know
That hula girl in my dreams over where, the island trade winds blow
I said goodby to my dear old mom, sailed west to the girl I know
That hula girl in my dreams over where, the island trade winds blow



Pretty Leilani, Island Girl (08/04/2002) (#073)

Inside the reef of the deep blue bay there
I still hear the sound that ukuleles play there
On the shore where the warm waters swirl
And I miss my pretty Leilani, island girl

Island girl, Leilani, my heart is blue tonight
I still hear the sound of guitars playing light
I hope you know how much I love you
I miss you, my pretty Leilani, island girl

If you try to count the stars above you
Just as many are my thoughts about you
On the shore where the warm waters swirl
I sure miss my pretty Leilani, island girl

Try to pretend that I’m there with you
And that your heart still beats with mine
Maybe soon the tides of love will turn dear
And I’ll return to you, forever by your side

Island girl, Leilani, my heart is blue tonight
I still hear the sound of guitars playing light
I hope you know how much I love you
I miss you, my pretty Leilani, island girl
I hope you know how much I love you
I miss you, my pretty Leilani, island girl



The Wrong Side of Blue (08/04/2002) (#074)

You are on the windward side and I’m on the blue
Love is on the leeward side and I’m missing you
Do you ever wonder, why love just can’t be true
All three are on the wrong side, and I’m on the blue

Our island love was fast and beautiful at first
What went wrong? Did our love just die of thirst?
I want to make things right because I’m missing you
But you are on the windward side and I’m on the blue

If you were on the leeward side, love might have a chance
My love could be on either side to start again romance
Love with you was just a game but I still love you true
But you are on the windward side and I’m on the blue

If I were on the windward side of island love with you
Winds would bring, from the leeward side, love renewed
And I could start again to live my life of love with you
But you are on the windward side and I’m on the blue

You are on the windward side and I’m on the blue
Love is on the leeward side and I’m missing you
Do you ever wonder, why love just can’t be true
All three are on the wrong side, and I’m on the blue
All three are on the wrong side, and I’m on the blue



Torches Of Love (08/04/2002) (#075)

On the beach where tiki torches are burning
Your dancing is just not the same
You think I don’t see that you’re yearning
For another, while I whisper you name

Torches are burning tonight
Island love is consumed in the fire
Torches are burning tonight
Just embers of love left with desire

On the beach where tiki torches are burning
You try to just look the other way
But I can see plainly that love is now over
Don’t pretend your love yet will stay

Torches are burning tonight
Island love is consumed in the fire
Torches are burning tonight
Just embers of love left with desire

On the beach where tiki torches are burning
Your flame of love burns for another
The burning in my heart is love disappearing
My torch of love for you is smothered

Torches are burning tonight
Island love is consumed in the fire
Torches are burning tonight
Just embers of love left with desire
No more torches of love of my love for you
No more torches of love of my love for you



Stars Of Love And The Moon (08/05/2002) (#076)

As I strolled on the shore under all of those stars
I related to each and every one just who you are
Your blessings to me, I counted since our love is true
I’m sure that I recounted one for each star plus the moon

Stars of love, you twinkle above
Moon above, you know who I’m dreaming of
Your companion stars, shines up there too
I love her like both, you stars of love and the moon

You’re my instructor and my love grows at your school
My love for you, darling, is just as gold as the rule
I’m glad that you love me, and that you understand
That I just want to love you as long as I can

Stars of love, you twinkle above
Moon above, you know who I’m dreaming of
Your companion stars, shines up there too
I love her like both, you stars of love and the moon

These islands are timeless but each morning is new
My love for you grows like the flowers from dew
My feelings for you tonight is as big as this sky
And the love of my heart for you has ample supply

Stars of love, you twinkle above
Moon above, you know who I’m dreaming of
Your companion stars, shines up there too
I love her like both, you stars of love and the moon
I love her like both, you stars of love and the moon



Endlessly (08/05/2002) (#077)

I love you so. Yes, I love you so
I don’t ever want for you to leave
If you should go. If you should go
For you, my heart would ever grieve

It’s been some time since I fell in love with you
As the sun arrives each day, my heart renews
Like the beauty of these islands in the sea
I just want to love you endlessly

I see your face. I see your face
Your beauty surely comes from angels’ grace
If you should go. If you should go
Nobody else could ever take your place

It’s been some time since I fell in love with you
As the sun arrives each day, my heart renews
Like the beauty of these islands in the sea
I just want to love you endlessly

I hold your hand. I hold your hand
I love the way you make me understand
If you should go. If you should go
My life would just reflect an empty man

It’s been some time since I fell in love with you
As the sun arrives each day, my heart renews
Like the beauty of these islands in the sea
I just want to love you endlessly

You must now know. You must now know
I love you dearly more than words can show
You say you’ll stay. You say you’ll stay
Each day we’ll love each other in a kindly way

It’s been some time since I fell in love with you
As the sun arrives each day, my heart renews
Like the beauty of these islands in the sea
I just want to love you endlessly
Like the beauty of these islands in the sea
I just want to love you endlessly



Dream Of Love (08/05/2002) (#078)

I just wish to say, I miss the way
That your smile made all things right
I don’t wish to say, but I’m on my way
And missing you tonight

Lovely islands smile from seas of blue
And then I dream that you still love me too

Your kiss used to say, wrong or right
Your love would stay, like day and night
I don’t want to think that tears will start
I know they will, since we’re apart

Lovely islands smile from seas of blue
And then I dream that you still love me too

I wrote letters too, and sent to you
Lines of love for you and islands too
Postman came today, but sad to say
Seems rain again has come my way

Lovely islands smile from seas of blue
And then I dream that you still love me too

I’m missing you, and kissing you
And writing letters too
Lovely islands smile from seas of blue
And then I dream that you still love me too
Lovely islands smile from seas of blue
And then I dream that you still love me too



Paradise For Two With You (08/06/2002) (#079)

I always knew that you could ease my mind in time
That love from you would paint the clouds a silver line
This island gathering place has gathered me to you
There’s no place I’d rather be than this paradise for two

This ocean of blue, and me and you
Are made for love as island lovers true
There’s no other place I’d rather be
Than in this paradise for two with you

In this life, you alone will be my one and true desire
When my arms hold you close, my heart is on fire
For me and you, the yellow moon will never turn blue
There’s no place I’d rather be than this paradise for two

This ocean of blue, and me and you
Are made for love as island lovers true
There’s no other place I’d rather be
Than in this paradise for two with you

You ask if I’m sure that my love for you will forever last
I can only say that love like ours can never have a past
Clouds may come, but rainbows will chase away the blues
There’s no place I’d rather be than this paradise for two

This ocean of blue, and me and you
Are made for love as island lovers true
There’s no other place I’d rather be
Than in this paradise for two with you



An Angel Sweetheart To Hold (08/06/2002) (#080)

I’m gonna find me an angel, sent from heaven above
Make her my sweetheart, on an island of love
Where is my angel, in this ocean of blue
Would you be my sweetheart, and forever be true

I’m gonna find me a bluebird, to sing a love song
Make sure that she heard, here is where she belongs
Where is my bluebird, to sing my love song
Sing to my angel, for to her I do long

I’m gonna buy me a rainbow, with a pot of pure gold
Buy a garland of flowers, and an island of love
Build a beautiful bower, and thank the stars above
For sending an angel, and a sweetheart to love

I’m gonna find me an angel, sent from heaven above
I’m gonna find me a bluebird, to sing a song of love
I’m gonna buy me a rainbow, with a pot of pure gold
I’m gonna love you forever, an angel sweetheart to hold

I’m gonna find me an angel, sent from heaven above
I’m gonna find me a bluebird, to sing a song of love

I’m gonna love you forever, an angel sweetheart to hold



You Are The Artist Of My Love (08/06/2002) (#081)

Clouds hang around the mountains but never over me
The blue of the sky above is all I see
Skys of gray are sunny days of May, I’ve been told
My life is now just like your heart of gold
You are the artist of my love

Even the moon is sunshine yellow, like the sun of day
My rainbow world is the color of happiness, they say
Half moon bay is as blue as the sky above
My world is a masterpiece, and you, the artist of my love
You are the artist of my love

As long as I think of you and you think of me
A rainbow will shine above for all to see
The evening sky is painted with colors so bold
My life is now just like your heart of gold
You are the artist of my love

Even the moon is sunshine yellow, like the sun of day
My rainbow world is the color of happiness, they say
Half moon bay is as blue as the sky above
My world is a masterpiece, and you, the artist of my love
You are the artist of my love



You’re The Best Of All (08/08/2002) (#082)

When you’re the best, don’t worry about the rest
Or what the rest of the world might say
You can only be what you were meant to be
You’re the best thing that’s ever come my way

Like islands blessed, I too, your love on me befall
Blue days can never come when you’re the best of all

When you’re the best, I just say goodby to yesterday
Darling, I would like to make request today
That your love be mine alone and with me stay
You’re the best thing that’s ever come my way

Like islands blessed, I too, your love on me befall
Blue days can never come when you’re the best of all

When you’re the best, I feel no pain in my heart
I wish that you had come my way from the start
My future plans look as bright as the ocean spray
You’re the best thing that’s ever come my way

Like islands blessed, I too, your love on me befall
Blue days can never come when you’re the best of all

When you’re the best, don’t worry about the rest
Or what the rest of the world might say
You can only be what you were meant to be
You’re the best thing that’s ever come my way

Like islands blessed, I too, your love on me befall
Blue days can never come when you’re the best of all
Blue days can never come when you’re the best of all



Beautiful Island (08/09/2002) (#083)

Beautiful island, await there for me
Lovedrops and moonbeams call from the sea
Songs of true lovers, have drifted my way
Kissed by the moonlight of love here to stay

Beautiful island, where I belong
Lovely are your shores, like island sarong
Wait while I sing you, love songs of the sea
Beautiful island, await there for me
Beautiful island, await there for me

Beautiful island, in the blue sea
Lovers you call there, dreams yet to be
Upon your mountains and valleys adorn
Rainbows of beauty, love you have born

Beautiful island, my dream from the start
My isle, my Hawaii, beams love in my heart
Moonlight on bay shines your love on me
Beautiful island, await there for me
Beautiful island, await there for me



Pareo Girl (08/09/2002) (#084)

Leilani girl, lovely island pearl, I have to say-o
In the summer sun, pretty island girl in the day-o
Hula girl, sets hearts awhirl wherever she goes
Prettiest girl in the island world in her pareo

Pareo girl, like waves that curl in the bay-o
Pareo girl, sets hearts awhirl wherever she goes
Daytime fun in the island sun, and at the luau
Prettiest girl in the island world in her pareo

Not Just A Neon Moon (08/10/2002) (#085)

I know it’s not just a neon moon
That makes me fall in love with you
Maybe it is just this month of June
Or the music of the guitar tune

Whatever the reason for this moment is,
Our hearts beat together like her’s and his
Yours and mine, our island love’s in tune
And this is not just a neon moon

I know it’s not just a neon moon
As you dance in my arms this June
Maybe it’s the light on the blue lagoon
Or the music of the guitar tune

Whatever the reason for this moment is,
Our hearts beat together like her’s and his
Yours and mine, our island love’s in tune
And this is not just a neon moon

I know it’s not just a neon moon
Our love is not just a trial balloon
I like the way you say that soon
Our love will grow like that yellow moon

Whatever the reason for this moment is,
Our hearts beat together like her’s and his
Yours and mine, our island love’s in tune
And this is not just a neon moon
Yours and mine, our island love’s in tune
And this is not just a neon moon



In The Middle Of A Teardrop (08/10/2002) (#086)

I thought you understood, my love was true and good
You changed your mind and took my isle of dreams
You’re on your island of love, in an ocean of blue
In the middle of a teardrop, I see I’m losing you

In the middle of a teardrop, I can see you there
On an island for lovers, without a care
You took my rainbow, and pot of gold
Played with my heart strings, but yours were cold

In the middle of an island, I don’t know where
There must be lovers, with dreams to share
I’ll find a new rainbow, and pot of gold
To make my heart sing, while yours is cold

In the middle of a heartache, I feel you there
What ever would it take, to make you care
You took my rainbow, and pot of gold
Played with my heart strings, but yours were cold

I thought you understood, my love was true and good
You changed your mind and took my isle of dreams
You’re on your island of love, in an ocean of blue
In the middle of a teardrop, I see I’m losing you
You’re on your island of love, in an ocean of blue
In the middle of a teardrop, I see I’m losing you



Rhythm For Two (08/10/2002) (#087)

My heart beats like drums through island trees
And I know it’s you my love wants to please
So, let my happy heart beat a rhythm for two
Your love and mine for each moment with you

Can you hear that sound, somewhere close above
It’s on the island breeze, when you’re here to me
A sound that must be love, like two turtledoves
When there’s only two who can share their love

My heart beats like drums through island trees
And I know it’s you my love wants to please
So, let my happy heart beat a rhythm for two
Your love and mine for each moment with you

The more I hear, the more this sounds like love
It may seem strange, for someone to arrange
This music in my soul as our hearts enfold
Our love and these vows that we exchange

My heart beats like drums through island trees
And I know it’s you my love wants to please
So, let my happy heart beat a rhythm for two
Your love and mine for each moment with you
So, let my happy heart beat a rhythm for two
Your love and mine for each moment with you



Biding My Time (08/11/2002) (#088)

From now until someday, I’ll be biding my time
Thinking of you, love, there on your island sublime
I know I need a vacation from these blues of mine
Til I’m with you in Hawaii blue, I’m biding my time

From now until someday, I’ll be biding my time
I want to hear you say, your heart will meet mine
Hear slack key guitars strum those Maui chimes
Until I can be with you girl, I’m biding my time

This may not be the best way to spend days of my time
But knowing that someday, I might be sharing your life
Waiting for you is worth saving every nickel and dime
Til I’m with you in a cottage for two, I’m biding my time

From now until someday, I’ll be biding my time
Thinking of you, love, there on your island sublime
I know I need a vacation from these blues of mine
Til I’m with you in Hawaii blue, I’m biding my time

Thinking of you, love, there on your island sublime
I want to hear you say, your heart will meet mine
Hear slack key guitars strum those Maui chimes
Waiting for you is worth saving every nickel and dime

From now until someday, I’ll be biding my time
Thinking of you, love, there on your island sublime
I know I need a vacation from these blues of mine
Til I’m with you in Hawaii blue, I’m biding my time
Til I’m with you in Hawaii blue, I’m biding my time



When I Was Just A Boy (08/11/2002) (#089)

When I was just a boy, I heard that love was a beautiful thing
Something you couldn’t hide, ’cause it would find you in time
Well, you’re the most beautiful thing I’ve dreamed of from the start
My love can’t hide, because a beautiful thing has found my heart

When I was just a boy, I thought love was an imaginary space
Now I know, It’s something that puts a smile on your face
The world of play things turns into love that you can’t replace
You found this boy, and my heart became love’s landing base

When I was just a boy, I wondered where love and I would meet
I heard that without love, my life would not be complete
Now that I’ve found you, my life and heart are filled with cheer
Please be mine for all time, and may love, to our island steer

When I was just a boy, islands were for playing in the sand
Now islands sing of romance and love for hearts to expand
That’s just how it was when in time I found a beautiful thing
Please be mine for all time, and may our love forever sing
Islands sing of romance and love, for it’s a beautiful thing
Please be mine for all time, and may our love forever sing
May our love forever sing



Hula Girl, Island Boy (08/11/2002) (#090)

Hula girl, I doubt that you know it, but
The day we met, my heart went swoon
Island girl, I hope I don’t blow it, but
I just hope you will love me soon

You don’t know how much I love you
But in time I’m sure that you will see
That you and honey are fresh as dew drops
Hula girl, let me be your busy bee

Hula girl, I want to be your island boy
Island girl, you fill my heart with joy
My world would sway if you walked away
Hula girl, let me be your sailor boy today

I’ll give rainbows and moonlight to you
And you’ll know that my love is true
Listen to your heart and you will see
This island love was meant for you and me

Everywhere you go, I would accompany you
And do everything you want me to do
I know I would never make you blue
I’ll just spend my time just loving you
Hula girl, I’ll spend my time just loving you



Islands Here Or Islands There (08/11/2002) (#091)

Whether islands here or islands there
They know, like us, of the love we share
We’ll live our dreams on islands fair
Whether islands here or islands there

You look so pretty in the morning when the sun rises
I think of you and you alone the whole day through
At night I know that there will be no surprises
Our love is steady and I only dream of you

Whether islands here or islands there
They know, like us, of the love we share
We’ll live our dreams on islands fair
Whether islands here or islands there

The clock on the wall reads island time
The ticking of my heart is on overdrive
Our love is real and not make believe
Island love is sweet this midsummer eve

Whether islands here or islands there
They know, like us, of the love we share
We’ll live our dreams on islands fair
Whether islands here or islands there
We’ll live our dreams on islands fair
Whether islands here or islands there



Aloha Con Dios, Kaipo (08/11/2002) (#092)

Now the village is dark, the island’s sleeping
Now, the war canoe departs, before the weeping
Aloha con Dios, Kaipo
My heart stays with you, my love

Look through the island mist and I’ll be with you
Even if I’m only in your dreams
Every day I’ll dream of times of love beside you
And think of only you through every lonely day

Now the time has come to face tomorrow
I’ll think of you in memories of love instead of sorrow

Even if I’m only in your dreams
Every day I’ll dream of times of love beside you

Aloha con Dios, Kaipo
Aloha con Dios, Kanani

Our Island Love (08/11/2002) (#093)

Let’s begin again for new horizons in the sun
This time our love will see the light of day
The time to make love wiser has begun
Aloha love will surely find a way
Aloha love will surely guide our day

Rainbow’s Gold (08/11/2002) (#095)

Over the horizon where red sails unfold
Over an island anchored in the sea
I know I’ll find that rainbow’s gold
I know it’s waiting there for me

When the sails fade over the horizon
Glowing red in the setting sun’s light
I wonder where the ship goes
When the sails fade out of sight

Over the horizon where red sails unfold
Over an island anchored in the sea
I know I’ll find that rainbow’s gold
I know it’s waiting there for me

When I dream warmly of you at night
I hear guitar strings of a lover’s song
I wonder where the songs of lovers go
When the dream fades out of sight

Over the horizon where red sails unfold
Over an island anchored in the sea
I know I’ll find that rainbow’s gold
I know it’s waiting there for me
I know I’ll find that rainbow’s gold



Where Are You, Island Girl (08/12/2002) (#096)

Where are you, my island girl
You know you set my heart awhirl
My starlight wish is that I might
Have my island girl with me tonight

I’ve searched these islands for love
You’re the one who fits just like a glove
Where are you, my island girl
You know you set my heart awhirl

Island moon, shine from above
Shine on my island girl, my love
Guiding star in love’s dark night
Guide me to her with your starlit light

I know you’re there, high up above
Angel please, send down my island love
I wish that things could be just right
To make my dream come true tonight

Where are you, my island girl
You know you set my heart awhirl
My starlight wish is that I might
Have my island girl with me tonight
Where are you, island girl



Sailing Along (08/12/2002) (#097)

See the ships sailing ’round
To the sea I am bound
Alone but free of the ground
Sailing along with the sea and the rolling waves

I’m a wandering man, sailing ships along
Wind in the sails sing me their salty songs
Starry nights under the Southern moon
I sail along singing a sailor’s tune

See the ships sailing ’round
To the sea I am bound
Alone but free of the ground
Sailing along with the sea and the rolling waves

Lands and friends of the past are behind
The seas never end but I’ll find
My rainbow at the end of the line
Sailing along with the sea and the rolling waves

When the storms in the night are gone
A new sea to sail comes with the morn
I’ll just keep on sailing along
In my heart I’ll sing sailor’s song

Because here on the sea I belong
Sailing along with the sea and the rolling waves
Sailing along with the sea and the rolling waves
Sailing along with the sea and the rolling waves



Where Love Flows (08/12/2002) (#098)

Islands have made this boy their friend
Come hear the island music that I love
Where love flows on breezes in the wind
And rainbows shine in blue skys above

The closer I get to my island home
The islands say to me, no longer roam
Here I belong and here I’ll stay
Where oceans roll and palm trees sway

I can hear the guitars softly playing
Drifting on the bay of love’s delight
Smell the fragrant island blossoms saying
Love is everywhere this midsummer night

I traveled the world to find a girl
And I left a lot of pretty girls behind
But now I know I wasted my time
My island gave me the loveliest pearl

Islands have made this boy their friend
Come hear the island music that I love
Where love flows on breezes in the wind
And rainbows shine in blue skys above
Where love flows on breezes in the wind
And rainbows shine in blue skys above



Deeper Than The Oceans (08/12/2002) (#099)

There in the harbor, at anchor, the Falls of Clyde
Come morn, to beautiful Hawaii she sails
To islands green in oceans blue and wide
Away from mainland cold and winds of gales

Lovely bird of paradise, my love for you is clearly
Deeper than the oceans where islands dwell
Lovely bird of paradise, my love for you is clearly
Deeper than the oceans where islands dwell

When I step aboard that gallant ship tomorrow
Like sails, my heart will fill with cheer to be near you
I’ll be on my way with no need for time to borrow
Away from blue Hawaii and love that I know is true

Lovely bird of paradise, my love for you is clearly
Deeper than the oceans where islands dwell
Lovely bird of paradise, my love for you is clearly
Deeper than the oceans where islands dwell

I long to see again those evening skies ablaze
And smell the fragrance of yellow ginger leis
When I step aboard that gallant ship tomorrow
Like sails, my heart will fill with cheer, not sorrow

Lovely bird of paradise, my love for you is clearly
Deeper than the oceans where islands dwell
Lovely bird of paradise, my love for you is clearly
Deeper than the oceans where islands dwell
Deeper than the oceans where islands dwell

My island rose, for you, I endless love avow

From the very first time that I kissed you
The perfume of this rose of love was new
No other flower pedals carress so blessedly
My island rose, I will love you endlessly
My island rose, I will love you endlessly

Aloha aikane, Aloha my friend
May we always be partners and always be friends
We both love these islands and oceans of blue
You stand by me and I’ll walk a mile in your shoes

Aloha aikane, with this island life, we agree
It’s the best life for island boys like you and me

Of You I Dream (08/13/2002) (#102)

Do dreamers dream like I do, of you the whole night through
When the island sunlight comes, I still dream of you
You’re the guitar string and hula swing, and songs I sing
Here, every season brings the spring, and of you I dream

Why is there only twenty four hours in a day
I only need a few more to dream of your hula sway
My skies are never gray, yours are always blue
I dream of you morning, noon and night time too

If I could scheme like schemers do, I would dream of you
Ice cream cones, sweet cologne, reminds me of you
You’re the guitar string and hula swing, and songs I sing
Here, every season brings the spring, and of you I dream

Do dreamers dream like I do, of you the whole night through
When the island sunlight comes, I still dream of you
You’re the guitar string and hula swing, and songs I sing
Here, every season brings the spring, and of you I dream
Here, every season brings the spring, and of you I dream



I Wrote Myself A Letter (08/13/2002) (#103)

I wrote myself a letter, which I’m forwarding to you
I signed it with your name to remind you to be true
Do you remember last September under island skies of blue
You said you’d be my island love and I’m just reminding you

I wrote myself that I would wait ’til I could claim your love
I hope this letter’s not in vain ’cause you’re my turtledove
Now that it’s Springtime in the islands, the time has come again
Remember last September, you said our love you would sustain

I waited ’til the Springtime and wrote my letter for the time
When you remember last September, you would then be mine
I told the postman to forget the postmark and please do not delay
Just get it to the prettiest island girl that I could only love today

I wrote myself a letter, which I’m forwarding to you
I signed it with your name to remind you to be true
Do you remember last September under island skies of blue
You said you’d be my island love and I’m just reminding you
I wrote myself a letter, and I’m just reminding you
I wrote myself a letter, and I’m just reminding you



Wish For An Island Angel (08/13/2002) (#104)

I don’t pretend to be the great pretender
The love I feel for you is like music so tender
Tonight will your heart unto mine surrender
The time with you will forever my love engender

We’re strolling along together under the stars
Down at the shore the steel guitars are playing
Like my heart, even the palm trees are swaying
I wished for an island angel, and here you are

To think about the lonely past is past all endeavor
Your hand is now in mine and you also have my heart
Here we are, under a lovers’ moon to shine forever
Your future and mine, like islands, will never depart

I don’t pretend to be the great pretender
Tonight will your heart unto mine surrender
Down at the shore the steel guitars are playing
Like my heart, even the palm trees are swaying

To think about the lonely past is past all endeavor
Here we are, under a lovers’ moon to shine forever
We’re strolling along together under the stars
I wished for an island angel, and here you are
I wished for an island angel, and here you are



A Bird Of Paradise (08/13/2002) (#105)

I remember that night, that night in June
The islands had magic, magic in the air
You had that lovely flower in your lovely hair
I remember that night, that night in June
When a bird of paradise flew across the moon

I hope I’m right because I’m telling everyone soon
I declare my love now, and for all time to be
And when you smiled and danced with me
A bird of paradise flew across the moon
A bird of paradise flew across the moon

The moon that shined on old Lahaina town
Must have known that he should hang around
But how did he know that like our love, soon
A bird of paradise would fly across the moon
A bird of paradise would fly across the moon

The old harbor walk seemed like heaven’s stairs
You by my side was the answer to my prayers
When we stopped and kissed by that blue lagoon
A bird of paradise flew across the moon
A bird of paradise flew across the moon

I remember that night, that night in June
The islands had magic, magic in the air
You had that lovely flower in your lovely hair
I remember that night, that night in June
When a bird of paradise flew across the moon
A bird of paradise flew across the moon



The Moon And You (08/13/2002) (#106)

You make the islands sing in the Springtime
You’re the reason why the Winters aren’t so long
You’re the quiet trade winds in the evening
And you’re the one who sings my heart a song
And you’re the one who sings my heart a song

I like to stroll with you among the palm trees
By the bay and smell the fragrant potpourri
Hold your hand and listen as the trade winds
Whisper songs of love for lovers, not just friends
Whisper songs of love for lovers, not just friends

You’re the girl who in the twilight, lights my star
And the sweetest island pearl is what you are
I just want to dance again and whisper to you
That I hope your heart and mine will intertwine
And someday soon, the moon and you are mine
And someday soon, the moon and you are mine



Over In Hawaii (08/13/2002) (#107)

Over in Hawaii where the sun and the trade winds play
Over where the moon arises full at the end of day
I found a brand new world of love where paradise starts
The moon and stars sang songs of love within our hearts
Over in Hawaii where the trade winds play

Steel guitars and ukuleles sounded music everywhere
The beauty of the islands wore a flower in her hair
I thought I’d take a chance and ask her for a dance
I was glad see the answer yes was in her glance
Over in Hawaii where the trade winds play

Over in Hawaii where the sun and the trade winds play
I vowed to love her now and always try to be
The one and only one her heart will ever need
The rest is history, our love will be forever and a day
Over in Hawaii where the trade winds play

Over in Hawaii where the sun and the trade winds play
Over where the moon arises full at the end of day
I found a brand new world of love where paradise starts
The moon and stars sang songs of love within our hearts
Over in Hawaii where the trade winds play
Over in Hawaii where the trade winds play



Blue Hawaii Dreams (08/13/2002) (#108)

I love to dream, each night, that you are there
I love to dream, that I can touch your golden hair
Island’s lovely charms are in my arms, so new
But my dream canoe then disappears, with you

Now, I’m afraid to dream because it always seems
That some lucky other guy is who your eye esteems
But in my dreams you promised that you’d always be
The only island girl for a lonely island boy like me

Now I’m afraid to dream, but I still dream of you
So here I go again, in the daytime when I’m blue
Make the clouds depart and rainbows come anew
Only you can make my blue Hawaii dreams come true

I love to dream, each night, that you are there
I love to dream, that I can touch your golden hair
Make the clouds depart and rainbows come anew
Only you can make my blue Hawaii dreams come true
Only you can make my blue Hawaii dreams come true



Magic Of Hawaii Blue (08/13/2002) (#109)

Days with you, are like the magic of Hawaii blue
The nights are too, as long as I’m with you
Tell me true, remember what you said to me
Deep our love would grow, like the deep blue sea
Deep our love would grow, like the deep blue sea

Soon will come, the moonbeams on the bay to see
Dance with me, be my only love now endlessly, endlessly
Hawaii calls, our dreams of love will all come true
Your heart and mine, will know the magic of Hawaii blue
Your heart and mine, will know the magic of Hawaii blue

Stars will guide, the light of love upon the blue lagoon, blue lagoon
Then will shine, upon our love the beams from harbor moon, harbor moon
I dream with you, in this island paradise for two
We can make our dreams come true, with the magic of Hawaii blue
We can make our dreams come true, with the magic of Hawaii blue



Someone Stole My Moon (08/14/2002) (#110)

The man in the moon tonight
Told me that our love was parting
That same old moon whose light
Once had brought your love to me

I asked the man in the moon tonight
If he could help my heart to see
If another moon of guiding light
Stole my moon and your heart from me

Your moon and mine both shine tonight
But mine just told me our love was parting
I need you but your love is for some other one
Your moon will rise and mine is setting like the sun

Now these lonely nights are here
And the man in the moon just showed to me
What my lonely heart didn’t want to see
Someone just stole my moon and your heart from me
Someone just stole my moon and your heart from me



Sing A Happy Song Sweetheart (08/14/2002) (#111)

The seasons change but you’re the same
Like island love, you still set my heart aflame
Your every part is like a masterpiece of art
I like you just the way you are, sweetheart

Like islands firmly anchored in a sea of blue
Don’t ever change the little things you do
Tides will come and go but love will do it’s part
So, let’s just sing a happy song, sweetheart

Like the motion of the ocean, our love will always be
So let’s laugh and love and be my sweetheart endlessly
Just like showers come and island flowers grow
The sun will shine and love in our hearts will flow

Like islands firmly anchored in a sea of blue
Don’t ever change the little things you do
Tides will come and go but love will do it’s part
So, let’s just sing a happy song, sweetheart
So, let’s just sing a happy song, sweetheart



Stars Of Love (08/14/2002) (#112)

Out of the moonlight you suddenly were near
Who knows what fortune could bring me here
Your lovely smile was like a prize
And stars of love got in my eyes

I couldn’t wait until your heart was mine
I lost my heart to you, it seems, in overtime
I guess you can still remember my sighs
When stars of love got in my eyes

I thought I saw a bird of paradise in flight
But it was just the yellow moon’s beam of light
I know I saw a vision of love fly across the sky
And stars of love got in my eyes

Your kiss was sweet and I made up my mind
My love for you would be the gentle kind
I thank the moon above for such a lovely prize
And that stars of love got in my eyes
I thank the moon above for such a lovely prize
And that stars of love got in my eyes
Stars of love got in my eyes



Sweetest Island Girl (08/14/2002) (#113)

Sweet island girl, as you go passing by
No wonder you catch island boys eyes
Your charm is like a hula dancer
But you still act so sweet and shy

Sweet yellow flower in perfect place
Matches the smile upon your face
You’re island-perfect in lovely grace
Did I mention my heart’s beating pace

You spread some sunshine here
And a lot of sunshine there
I’ll bet the island boys are hopping
To take you island shopping

Sweet island girl, it’s plain to see
That love has come for you and me
Let me kiss you once, or twice or three
You’re the sweetest island girl for me
Let me kiss you once, or twice or three
You’re the sweetest island girl for me
You’re the sweetest island girl



Bora Bora Wine (08/14/2002) (#114)

Two thousand miles out across the ocean
Girls are on the beach wearing sun tan lotion
Bora Bora is the island where you’ll find
Island girls, pareos and Bora Bora wine

Surrounded by blue lagoons everywhere
See exotic trees and feel the salty air
But my exotic island dream is just to find
Island girls, pareos and Bora Bora wine

Two thousand miles away with nothing in between
Bora Bora is the island jewel in a lagoon serene
I’ll paddle my canoe no matter what the time, for
Island girls, pareos and Bora Bora wine

Two thousand miles only seems too far
But on Bora Bora is where I’ll play my guitar
While I soak up the sun and look for fine
Island girls, pareos and Bora Bora wine

Bora Bora is where they grow black pearls
As well as exotic trees and island girls
Bora Bora is the island where you’ll find
Island girls, pareos and Bora Bora wine
Island girls, pareos and Bora Bora wine



Kalua Love (08/14/2002) (#115)

Tonight, my love, stars guide above
The moon shines on the bower for my Kalua love
Your song is there, like perfumed air
And lips to kiss beyond compare
Will you be my only, my Kalua love
Will you be my only, my Kalua love

You, tonight my love, are mine to hold
Let love unfold, for tonight, Kalua love
Hear the tradewind breeze as it blows
Kalua love is soft and sweetly grows
Will you be my only, my Kalua love

Tonight, my love, comes fragrant pua tuberose
The night is young, and so is love, Kalua love
Stars of love will shine tonight, like moon above
For this is the song of Kalua, Kalua love
Will you be my only, my Kalua love
My Kalua love



Luana Luna (08/14/2002) (#116)

Luana luna, you know I’m gonna, make you mine
Beauty so sublime

Luana luna, your grace is like roses in Springtime
Like Hawaii chimes

In summertime of love, I’m luna moona over you
Like Hawaii blue

Say to me, Luana luna, you’ll be true
Or I’ll be blue

Luana luna, I’ll draw a chart to you, my sweetheart
To you my love impart

I’ll treasure love for you, and I’ll be true
Will you, too

When I’m this way, I’m luna moona over you
But never blue

My Luana luna, please be mine, ’cause I love you
Luana luna, be mine, too
Luana luna, be mine, too



Kehealani (08/14/2002) (#117)

Kehealani, you are the girl that I adore
I only yearn that you, my heart restore
The world I’ve covered to be your lover, Kehealani
Your sweet love is what I only day to day live for

Kehealani, please relieve my aching heart
Dreams can’t be complete if we’re apart
To my heart, will you, your love now gather
Here in this Hawaiian island paradise forever

When we strolled the sand at Waikiki
Do you remember the moon upon the sea
I wished upon a star and thought thereof
Soon the winds would bring a song of love

Kehealani, my love for you is tender
Aloha means that your love would surrender
So, answer please, and come stay beside me
Kehealani, may your love be endless like the sea
Kehealani, I’ll love you endlessly



Lonely Hula Tree (08/15/2002) (#118)

Hula tree, on the beach at Waikiki
Hula tree, you stand all alone like me
Did your tradewinds stop, blowing to and fro
And leave you standing alone

You can stay that way, just like yesterday
Your heart is made of wood
But it’s understood
My heart needs love every day

The trade winds used to blow, love my way
But winds are not the same, I’ve had better days
Love was here, and then, flew away with the breeze
Hula tree, lonely hula tree

You can stay that way, just like yesterday
Your heart is made of wood
But it’s understood
My heart needs love every day

If I were like that hula tree, I could stand the pain
But I’m not a hula tree, love has been in vain
When will love blow my way, on the tradewinds again
Hula tree, Lonely hula tree
Hula tree, Lonely hula tree



Take This Ginger Lei (08/15/2002) (#119)

Aloha ‘oe sweetheart, now that you are leaving
I hope we’ll meet again to end the grieving
Take this ginger lei, colored yellow
Think of me from time to time, my heart is mellow

A ginger lei, a little kiss and then
Aloha ‘oe until your love has come again
Even though you go, I’m sure you know
That my love for you will grow ’til then

If you hear the guitars play Aloha ‘oe
You will also hear my breaking heart’s refrain
So, take this ginger lei
And think of me that I may see you love again

How can I smile as you depart
So, I’ll just say Aloha ‘oe, sweetheart
Take this ginger lei and hope that soon someday
Aloha ‘oe will bring your love without delay

A ginger lei, a little kiss and then
Aloha ‘oe until your love has come again
Even though you go, I’m sure you know
That my love for you will grow ’til then

If you hear the guitars play Aloha ‘oe
You will also hear my breaking heart’s refrain
So, take this ginger lei
And think of me that I may see you love again
Think of me that I may see you love again



Lover’s Moon (08/15/2002) (song#120)

I have felt the kiss of lover’s moon of Hawaii
A kiss that sings a ukulele tune to me
A paradise divine where love is made to shine
And every moon still brings your love to me

I have felt your kiss that tastes like wine to me
Looked into you eyes and saw love instantly
My heart sings out a song for you and me
We have felt the kiss of lover’s moon of Hawaii

We have turned the tide of lonely days ago
A tide of love has filled my empty heart, I know
This island love has made my eyes to see
That every moon still brings your love to me
Every moon still brings your love to me



My Beautiful Hawaii (08/15/2002) (song#121)

I hear sweet sounds as the love birds sing
They tell of islands anchored in the sea
A place where dreams of dreamers see
That island love was meant for you and me

The sun will paint the evening sky with gold
Fill your heart with all the love that it can hold
We will watch the palm trees dancing in the breeze
That also whispers songs of love to you and me

From the islands of the sea I hear the call
Return to me with dreams of love for all
I must go back to the gentle shores of Waikiki
To my dear isles upon the sea, my beautiful Hawaii

The sun will paint the evening sky with gold
Fill your heart with all the love that it can hold
I must go back to the gentle shores of Waikiki
To my dear isles upon the sea, my beautiful Hawaii
To my dear isles upon the sea, my beautiful Hawaii



Please Wear This Lei (08/15/2002) (song#122)

In Honolulu is where they weave a lei, or two
So I can buy one for my love, for you
A lei is meant to be for two, not one
Please wear this lei, for my heart you have won

In the morning when they start to weave their leis
The fragrance of the flowers seems to lift the haze
That’s when I start to dream of you again, you see
In Honolulu where they say Aloha ‘oe, Aloha ‘oe

As we walk along the beach at twilight time
I place a lei around you neck that’s so sublime
I kiss you lips and whisper words of love to you
Like fragrant leis meant not for one, but two

In Honolulu is where they weave a lei, or two
So I can buy one for my love, for you
A lei is meant to be for two, not one
Please wear this lei, for my heart you have won
Please wear this lei, for my heart you have won



Fragrant Maile Lei (08/15/2002) (song#123)

When I give this maile lei for your hair today
It’s not just a bromeliad to this lucky lad
It means Aloha, sweet, with love to spare
This maile lei is made with tenderness and care

The bromeliad grows just for you
In valleys kissed with mountain dew
It’s like fragrant heaven when I’m with you
This maile lei is made with love that’s true

The bromeliad is aglow when kissed by the sun
It’s maile lei is meant for you, my pretty one
This lei of love will now adorn your hair
With fragrant love of tenderness and care

The bromeliad grows just for you
In valleys kissed with mountain dew
It’s like fragrant heaven when I’m with you
This maile lei is made with love that’s true
With this maile lei, I give my love to you



In The Heart Of Old Kauai (08/15/2002) (song#124)

Today I heard a sweet refrain
That’s just as sweet as sugar cane
I have heard it many times untold
But it’s a song, that like love, must unfold

You can’t begin to count the flowers
Growing in the heart of old Kauai
Rainbows have all the colors of the flowers
Shining in the heart of old Kauai

The moon’s aglow and starlight shows
A symphony brand new from long ago
A guitar tune of love for you and me
Playing in the heart of old Kauai

There is where the tradewinds blow
Where Aloha means more than just hello
This old paradise now says to me
Young is our love in the heart of old Kauai
This old paradise now says to me
Young is our love in the heart of old Kauai



Malihini Baby (08/15/2002) (song#125)

You’re my Malihini baby, lily of the day
Here for you, my darling, a Malihini lei
The yellow of the lily, is like pure gold
Like you, my darling, to have and hold

You are my day lily, you suit me to a tee
Please accept my Malihini, Malihini lei
Say pua Malihini, or Malihini mele
Either way, I love you, each and every day

My love is like the waving of the palm trees
Soft and true as the skies of blue above
All the words of love are not just maybe
My love for you is true, my Malihini baby

You’re my Malihini baby, lily of the day
Here for you, my darling, a Malihini lei
The yellow of the lily, is like pure gold
Like you, my darling, to have and hold
Your’re my Malihini, baby of pure gold
Your’re my Malihini, baby of pure gold



Aloha Bands (08/15/2002) (#126)

There’s never any sighing, and never any crying
When you hear the music of Aloha bands
You only see the dancing, and romancing
Of lovers in the moonlight in Aloha land

Palm trees are ‘a swaying, Aloha bands ‘a playing
Music of the ukulele and the steel guitar too
I only want to be with you, in this Aloha land
And dance to the music of Aloha bands

When the moon is beaming, lovers all are dreaming
Strumming on their heart strings, in Aloha land
Tradewinds there are seeming, to be ‘a scheming
With music in the hearts of lovers of Aloha bands

There’s never any sighing, and never any crying
When you hear the music of Aloha bands
I only want to be with you, in this Aloha land
And dance to the music of Aloha bands
And dance to the music of Aloha bands



Aloha, I Love You (08/15/2002) (#127)

It is always customary, even when you feel contrary
Just to say Aloha to your friends
Don’t be like Tom and Jerry, afraid to be very merry
And fight like cats and dogs contend

It is always customary, to say Aloha to your very
Best friend
I like to think that every, one in the world can truly
Big and little differences transcend

It is always customary, to say Aloha each and every
Day of life you spend
Look at all the nice things, you and I could both bring
To help the world of mankind sing

Sing Aloha and be merry, even when you feel contrary
It’s the only right thing to do
It should be always customary, to always do your very
Best to to say Aloha, I love you
It’s best to say Aloha, I love you



Other side Of The Rainbow (08/16/2002) (#128)

On the other side of the rainbow
There’s an island in the ocean
When I think of it, I get a notion
To go again there just to say hello

The call of the wild is only mild
Compared to the call of distant shores
On the other side of the rainbow
Hawaii call to me yet more and more

There the gentle breezes whisper
Sweet nothings in your ear
Hawaii will always be where I prefer
To be with you forever, dear

On the other side of the rainbow
In the middle of the big blue ocean
Hawaii calls to me sweet and low
Come feel again the magic of love’s potion

From the other side of the rainbow
If hawaii calls for you
Go to the other side of the rainbow
Where Aloha lives in Aloha ‘oe



Moonlight On The Sails (08/16/2002) (#129)

Moonlight on the sails
Sailing over the sea
A hundred leagues to go
To where my heart longs to be

There’s a full moon tonight
The light of a sailor’s lore
Bring me safely in my flight
To the light of Hawaii’s shore

Winds of love are in the rigging, calling
Calling me back to my island paradise
Moonlight on the sails
Guide my ship, and to my heart, love entice

In a sailor’s heart, dreams of islands burn
To my isle of dreams my ship does turn
Moonlight on the sails
To Hawaii I must return
Moonlight on the sails
To Hawaii I must return



Island Days Of Yore (08/16/2002) (#130)

When I was younger, I flew like birds of thunder
Sunshine played in my heart and joy was in store
The sound of island laughter sent fear asunder
In my island days of yore

Island life was kind and manners you would mind
Paradise then was pretty before men went off to war
Summer days and beautiful bays were there to explore
In my island days of yore

Years then passed like sand rushing down the hourglass
I dream of times past, bay fishing and saltwater bass
I tell my kids of life in Hawaii when dreams were in store
In my island days of yore

When I was younger, I flew like birds of thunder
Island life was kind and manners you would mind
Sunshine played in my heart and joy was in store
In my island days of yore
In my island days of yore



Treasures Of Love (08/16/2002) (#131)

The moon is full and the tide is high
The time has come to to say goodby
A sailor must sail with the tides of time
Darling, I’ll return when the moon’s in prime

My love, I hate this time of departing
As if my heart, the sea is now parting
My last voyage I’ll sail over the blue
Sweetheart, I’ll come sailing back to you

When the moon is full and the tide is high
Look for ships returning when love is nigh
On the tide returning fourscore or more
My love, I’ll return to Hawaii’s shore

For you I will bring treasures from afar
Silks and pearls from a wealthy czar
But most of all, my love for you I’ll bring
And give to you my heart and a wedding ring

When the moon is full and the tide is high
Look for ships returning when love is nigh
For you, my love, treasures of love I’ll bring
And give to you my heart and a wedding ring



Music Of Old Hawaii (08/17/2002) (#132)

Sounds as though the lazy music playing
From far away in old Hawaii blue
And the island songs seem to be saying
Old Hawaii holds brand new dreams for you

Whether night or day, my mind is saying
My dreams of you will all come true
Remember when we strolled the sands of old Hawaii
It was then I vowed my love for you

The perfumed fragrance of the tradewinds there
Still carries memories of days without a care
Of nights of dreaming under moon and stars
And dancing to those Hawaiian steel guitars

Sounds as though the lazy music playing
Still tells of love which we will now renew
The music of old Hawaii is still saying
That, after all, I’m still in love with you

Sounds as though the lazy music playing
From far away in old Hawaii blue
And the island songs seem to be saying
Old Hawaii holds brand new dreams for you
The music of old Hawaii is still saying
That, after all, I’m still in love with you



Saturday Night Love Song (08/17/2002) (#133)

Sing a love song on a Saturday night
The moon and the stars will all smile
Hawaii will bring your heart to delight
With love for you on a beautiful isle

Sing a love song of moon and starlight
Sing a love song tonight
Sing a love song of Hawaiian delights
Of lovers and dreams and hearts to ignite

Don’t wait for the time to just happen by
Love can escape to other time zones
Sing a love song while love is still shy
It’s better than singing alone

Sing a love song on a Saturday night
The moon and the stars will all smile
Hawaii will bring your heart to delight
With love for you on a beautiful isle

Ukuleles and guitars will play your love song
The moon and the stars will do their part too
Sing a love song for your sweetheart alone
There’s no reason for you to be blue

Sing a love song on a Saturday night
The moon and the stars will all smile
Hawaii will bring your heart to delight
With love for you on a beautiful isle
Sing a love song tonight



Hawaii Is Waiting (08/17/2002) (#134)

If you’re searching for paradise, it isn’t hard to find
Hawaii is such a place, not just a state of mind
If you’re looking for a slower pace, bare feet instead of shoes
Life should be for love, not haste, Hawaii is waiting for you

Rush hour is such a lonesome word
Sitting alone in a traffic jam
Rushing around ’til life is all blurred
And nobody gives a darn

If you’re searching for paradise, it isn’t hard to find
Hawaii is such a place, not just a state of mind
If you’re looking for a slower pace, bare feet instead of shoes
Life should be for love, not haste, Hawaii is waiting for you

I can never find a sympathetic mind
To help my heart to believe
That this pace of life which is full of strife
Is something for which I should cleave

If you’re searching for paradise, it isn’t hard to find
Hawaii is such a place, not just a state of mind
If you’re looking for a slower pace, bare feet instead of shoes
Life should be for love, not haste, Hawaii is waiting for you

I need a lover, not one to pretend
I need a place to run for cover
And someone my heart to mend
I just need to discover a friend

If you’re searching for paradise, it isn’t hard to find
Hawaii is such a place, not just a state of mind
If you’re looking for a slower pace, bare feet instead of shoes
Life should be for love, not haste, Hawaii is waiting for you
Hawaii is waiting for you



Hawaii Is Calling (08/17/2002) (#135)

Although I’ve been there a dozen times
Hawaii is everyone’s dream
I like the guitar notes of Maui chimes
Hawaii is calling to me

Whether driving a car or watching a star
I know there’s still so much to see
I still hear the sounds of slack-key guitars
Hawaii is calling to me

Lovely wahini, you won’t be lonely
I’m making my way back there, you see
This time it won’t be love in name only
Hawaii is calling to me

We’ll use this chance to make our romance
One that we will both see
Is not just a glance or just a last dance
Hawaii is calling to me

Whenever I was there, I never could compare
This life on the mainland for me
With island living, ohana giving, as there
Hawaii is calling to me
Hawaii is calling to me



Moonlight Dream Away (08/18/2002) (#136)

Island life has always been a dream of mine
But it always seems to slip away
Time to get on that plane and fly, fly, fly
Paradise is only a moonlight dream away

Tell sweet mama everything will turn out right
The kids are all gone and it’s a brand new day
Pay off the bills, save the money and try, try, try
Paradise is only a moonlight dream away

Been working this job since nineteen sixty nine
I should be retired but I’ve got to stay
Gotta make a move soon while it’s time, time, time
Paradise is only a moonlight dream away

We made the move and we’re gettin’ up some steam
Bought an outrigger and a little cottage by the bay
Sweet mama and I are gonna dream, dream, dream
Paradise is only a moonlight dream away
Paradise is only a moonlight dream away



Groovin’ Down To Waikiki (08/18/2002) (#137)

When the sun is setting and the day is done
Put on the island jeans ’cause it’s time for fun
Watch ’em light the torches over at the beach
Listen to the ukuleles playing down the street
Listen to the ukuleles playing down the street

We wanna go to a luau but it costs a lot
So we think it over and we’ll compromise
Maybe go to the shorebird, or cast a lot
Looks like another cheeseburger in paradise
Looks like another cheeseburger in paradise

Groovin’ on down toward Lewers street
Snappin’ our fingers to the bongo beat
Watching all the movie stars in limosines
And munching on fries and buffalo wings
And munching on fries and buffalo wings

Dancing in the moonlight and under the stars
To island music of ukuleles and steel guitars
Hawaii and the beach is the only place to be
When we’re livin’ on love and granola bars
Livin’ on love and granola bars

When the sun is setting and the day is done
Put on the island jeans ’cause it’s time for fun
Hawaii and the beach is the only place to be
Groovin’ on down to Waikiki
Groovin’ on down to Waikiki



Blue Over You (08/18/2002) (#138)

Islands are made for making love, but love is over too
Your hands are warm but your heart is cold
And I’m blue over you
I’m blue over you

I dreamed of love, but you did things undreamed of
I don’t know, but I’ve been told
Some island love is just fool’s gold
And I’m blue over you
I’m blue over you

The lagoon is green and blue, but I am too
True colors are showing through
Love has flown just like you
And I’m blue over you
I’m blue over you

I don’t guess it matters where you’ve gone
Isles of love aren’t characteristic of
Love like yours that’s been withdrawn
And I’m blue over you
I’m blue over you

Black and white are true colors too
Isles of love weren’t meant for you
Clear are my tears
And I’m blue over you
I’m blue over you



Hawaiian Hula Tunes (08/18/2002) (#139)

Those island hula tunes
Dance with your heart as well as your shoes
Can’t wait ’til time is opportune for
Those Hawaiian hula tunes

Those island hula tunes
Play those ukuleles from night ’til morn
Don’t stop ’til your shoes are worn
Those Hawaiian hula tunes

Those island hula tunes
Steel guitars that serenade the moon
The whole island communes with
Those Hawaiian hula tunes

Those island hula tunes
Dancing through the month of June
We’ll be romancing soon to
Those Hawaiian hula tunes

Those island hula tunes
Play those ukuleles from night ’til morn
Steel guitars that serenade the moon
We’ll be romancing soon to
Those Hawaiian hula tunes
Those Hawaiian hula tunes



Love’s Attire (08/18/2002) (#140)

I am here awaiting for my beloved you
My heart is not abating, for my love is true
Come calm my heart and my desire
You are to me a lovely fragrant flower

Love will warm forever like a burning pyre
The pledges of my heart for you
My love, you are the beacon fire
At the edge of paradise for two

This flower lei is for you, my love, alone
The joy I have this day is not just mine
To the moon and back my feet have gone
Our hearts will forever entertwine

I remember fondly of the day you came
Like fragrant leis moist from the rain
We must listen to our heart’s desire
Like islands clothed in love’s attire

This flower lei is for you, my love, alone
Love will warm forever like a burning pyre
We must listen to our heart’s desire
Like islands clothed in love’s attire
Like islands clothed in love’s attire



My Island Sweetheart (08/18/2002) (#141)

Far across deep blue waters, lives an islander’s daughter
On the shores of old Lahaina Town
Where I loved her and left her, but I can’t forget her
I miss my island sweetheart

Sweetheart, sweetheart, look up toward the Heaven
Each night when the stars start to shine
By those island stars above you, I swear that I love you
You are my island sweetheart

When my memories wander, away over yonder
To the sweetheart that I left behind
In a moment of glory, a face comes before me
The face of my island sweetheart

Sweetheart, sweetheart, walk down by the shoreline
Pretend that your hand’s holding mine
By those island stars above you, I swear that I love you
You are my island sweetheart



Thank God For Hawaii (08/18/2002) (#142)

When I see palm trees, and oceans of blue
I think these islands were made for just me and you
When I look at you, I’m in heavenly bliss
And I thank God above, that this paradise exists

When I see skies, evening fire red
I think of you, on the day we were wed
I know there is love, and these things are all His
And I thank God above, that this paradise exists

The stars in the heavens, so pretty at night
Couples holding hands, beneath the moonlight
Islands are happy, for loved ones and strangers too
Hawaii means love for me and for you

I see people come, and I watch people go
Hawaii taught me love where peacefulness flows
And I thank God above, that this paradise exists
I thank God above, for this heavenly bliss
Thank God for Hawaii



The Day We Dreamed (08/18/2002) (#143)

Today, all my dreams have come my way
Hawaii is the place to stroll down by the bay
Best of all, I know you’re here to stay
The day I dreamed is here, today

After waiting for what seemed too many years
The sun has chased away my tears
I love you, is really what I want to say
The day I dreamed is here, today

How we met in such a crowd is for anyone to say
But I don’t need to guess, in our Hawaii blue
Best of all, I like the way you say
Today your dream too, has come true

Today, all my dreams have come my way
I love you, is really what I want to say
Best of all, I like the way we both can say
The day we dreamed is here, today
The day we dreamed is here, today



No More Solitare (08/18/2002) ( #144)

I see love in your eyes in the sun of early morn
You refresh me like a walk in island misty rain
Love anew starts like the day I was born
You are the music of islands’ lovely refrain
Music of islands’ lovely refrain

You softly arrived like the gentle tropic breeze
Kept my heart warm and life interweave
An island alone can be pretty, but bare
You came to my island, my heart waiting there
My heart waiting there

On this island of love, now two can be one
Love anew starts like the day I was born
In this life, few people will ever realize
Love like ours in this island paradise
In this island paradise

You softly arrived like the gentle tropic breeze
Kept my heart warm and life interweave
An island alone can be pretty, but bare
You came to my island, my heart waiting there
You came to my island, no more solitare



How Long Will Love Be (08/19/2002) (#145)

One island is worth a thousand words
Your love would take a million or two
But words would only show me how to say
What is real in my heart since I met you

On an island, you may walk end to end
And climb a volcano up to the sky
Love has no boundaries or fences to mend
I will never leave our love high and dry

Islands and man are like places in time
Waiting for life and love to appear
My island found life and I have found love
Gave me reason to live like a sabbatical year

Tomorrow will be what today our love is
Paradise on an island for two
How long will love be, it’s a mystery to me
But forever is when I’ll be loving you

One island is worth a thousand words
Your love would take a million or two
But words would only show me how to say
What is real in my heart since I met you

How long will love be, it’s a mystery to me
But forever is when I’ll be loving you



Ship Of Dreams (08/19/2002) (#146)

The sea reminds me of a dream, changing as it goes
A ship is a sailor’s dream, sailing to islands in the flows
Horizons come ahead and disappear behind
I think about you every day somewhere in the stream of time

I guess I’ll sail my ship to whatever horizon I belong
Looking for that perfect island in a tropic zone
If I ever find it, I’ll drop an anchor and a line
And think about you somewhere in the stream of time

Like a bird of freedom, I’ve been sailing everywhere
Never taking to account the love and feeling that you shared
I took for granted the love you gave, now I’ve spent my prime
And I think about you somewhere in the stream of time

I’m looking at my compass and my ship is way off course
I need to run before the wind to that island’s sandy shore
My ship is leaky but my dream still has a silver line
I know I’ll find you somewhere in the stream of time

The sea reminded me of a dream, changing as it goes
This ship was my sailor’s dream, sailing to islands in the flows
If I ever find that perfect isle, I’ll drop an anchor and a line
And think about you somewhere in the stream of time

Horizons came ahead and disappeared behind
I sailed my ship of dreams but now has come the time
To drop my anchor somewhere and cast out a line
And try to find you somewhere in the stream of time
Try to find you somewhere in the stream of time



Polynesian Wahini (08/18/2002) ( #147)

Polynesian and graceful wahini
The girl from Hawaii is doing the hula
And when she sways, she portrays – love

When she smiles, she looks so lovely
Dark eyes that seems to say I love you
And when she sways, she portrays – love

Yes, I love her so madly
How can I get her to see
She’s a work of art, but sadly
When this wahini dances down by the sea
She never sees me under the banyan tree

Polynesian and graceful wahini
The girl from Hawaii is doing the hula
And when she sways, she portrays – love
When this wahini dances down by the sea
She never sees me under the banyan tree
No, she never sees…



Helemano (08/19/2002) (#148)

Do you hear the drums of war, Helemano
Many moons ago we were under starry skies like this
In the moonlight, Helemano
Chanting songs of love and the ukulele playing softly
We could hear the drums of war
And watched canoes of warriors coming swiftly

The canoes of war came closer, Helemano
It was as the moon stood still and all the stars then fell
But you were not afraid, Helemano
You were young and strong, and life could never pass us by
But I cannot deny
The other warriors drums and fear made me cry

There was magic in the tradewinds that night
The moon was bright, Helemano
King Kalakaua fought for you and me
For Hawaii, Helemano
We always knew we could not lose
We had to choose
Hawaii will never be the same again
I know, my friend, Helemano

There was magic in the tradewinds that night
The moon was bright, Helemano
King Kalakaua fought for you and me
For Hawaii, Helemano
We always knew we could not lose

Hawaii will never be the same again
I know, my friend, Helemano
Hawaii will never be the same again
I know, my friend, Helemano



Polenesian Moon (08/19/2002) (#149)

Polenesian moon, I need your light to enhance
Guide to me someone to romance tonight
Help me find an island girl, my heart to entrance
So, shine on me, polynesian moon so bright

Polynesian moon, your golden beams of love
Can help me find the dream I’m dreaming of
So, shine on me, polynesian moon tonight
Bring to me the one for whom my heart delights

Way up there in the tropic sky, so full above
Light the lamp of island love for her and me
Polynesian moon, you know the one I’m thinking of
Shine on me your golden moonbeams on the sea

Polenesian moon, I need your beams of love tonight
Bring to me the one for whom my heart delights
Light the lamp of island love for her and me
Shine on me your golden moonbeams on the sea
Shine on me, polynesian moon



A Banner Day (08/19/2002) (#150)

Today has been for me a banner day
I met a girl who said I was mannerly
She even said that I could plan to see
Her again, from time to time in Hawaii

I know there must be on my face a smile
It feels like it could go on a country mile
It’s the reason why my feet are in the air
Didn’t know I was kin to Mr. Fred Astair

The guitar music of Hawaii’s island scene
Is now the music of my life, it seems
My new found love is a sweet lily of the isle
Her beauty is more than a lily of the nile

When island guitars play those Maui chimes
Heart strings sing love in a thousand rhymes
This day was so easy falling in love, you see
All I had to do was be nice and mannerly

Today has been for me a banner day
I met a girl who said I was mannerly
She even said that I could plan to see
Her again, from time to time in Hawaii
Today has been for me a banner day for me



Aloha, Liebe and Amor (08/19/2002) (#151)

Aloha, liebe and amor – this little word means it is you I adore
Yo enamorarse de tu, is I fall in love with you
Meine liebling, you are my sweetheart too
Aloha con Dios, my darling. Aloha con Dios, my love

So many ways there are for me to say I love you
In every language under every star
Aloha is my favorite way to say I love you
Object of my heart, my polynesian love you are

Are there any other words as sweet as “I adore you’
My dictionary tells me it just isn’t so
So, here I place my love and heart before you
I only ask that your love now on these bestow

Hawaii whispers love on tradewinds crystal clear
Can’t seem to find a more lovely earring for your ear
I’ll adorn you with Aloha, liebe and amor
And try to find a thousand ways to say it more
I’ll adorn you with Aloha, liebe and amor
And try to find a thousand ways to say it more
And try to find a thousand ways to say it more



Only You, Leilani (08/19/2002) (#152)

The tradewinds kiss your soft sweet hair, Leilani
But it is the kiss of hard despair to me
That is why I can only ask you why, Leilani
You took my love and tore my heart from me

The stars remind me of the smile I saw in your eyes
Any smile I have is only a breaking heart’s disguise
The tears I hide are on the other side of happiness
Your love is just a lie, but Leilani, I love you nonetheless

I want so much for you to be here with me, Leilani
Why do you fear when only love is what you see
Maybe tomorrow’s stars above will guide you
Back to the one who loves only you, Leilani

The tradewinds kiss your soft sweet hair, Leilani
You took my love and tore my heart from me
Maybe tomorrow’s stars above will guide you
Back to the one who loves only you, Leilani
Back to the one who loves only you, Leilani



Blue Day In Blue Hawaii (08/20/2002) (#153)

Blue Hawaii, How I love my Blue Hawaii
Monday is blue, but Hawaii is too
The colors are the same, but only in name
Beause of how I love my blue Hawaii
I love my blue Hawaii

Tuseday is blue, just like Monday was too
And Wendsday’s blue still, but it’s all downhill
Toward Saturday, ah, weekend in blue Hawaii
Spend the day at the park, ’til dark in blue Hawaii
’til dark in blue Hawaii

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday were blue
Now here comes blue Thursday staring at you
It ain’t fair, love is in the air in blue Hawaii
But Friday goes fast, and TGIF, its the last
Blue day in blue Hawaii

Saturday’s here, time for pretzels and beer
Stay at the park ’til dark in blue Hawaii
Sunday rolls on down, rainbows all around
Monday comes around, my heart is down
It’s a blue day in blue Hawaii
Blue day in blue Hawaii
Blue Monday



Answer Me, My Island Love (08/20/2002) (#154)

Can you find an answer for me, my island love
Is there a transgression that I’m guilty of
I have lost your love somewhere in the stars above
Can you answer me, my island love

Our love was divine until this day
I thought our love could never go astray
Would you please return to me without delay
Will you answer please, my island love

Can you be happy if you’re on your own
My heart does not agree, being all alone
I know your heart is not one made of stone
Can you answer me, my island love

You know from history that I was true
Can we solve this mystery and start anew
Did you really mean to make me blue
Please answer me, my island love

You know from history that I was true
Can we solve this mystery and start anew
Did you really mean to make me blue
Please answer me, my island love
Please answer me, my island love



All The Dreams (08/20/2002) (#155)

Where have all the dreams of island lovers gone
Gone to the moon, to the moon every one
That’s why the moon is such a lovely thing
Golden beams of love cause island hearts to sing
Island hearts to sing

Where have all the dreams of island lovers gone
Gone to the stars, to the stars every one
That’s why the starlight shines so brilliantly
To light the way to island lovers’ ecstasy
Island lovers’ ecstasy

Where have all the dreams of island lovers gone
To Waikiki, to Waikiki every one
That’s why Waikiki is an island love’s delight
Lovers keep the moon and stars there up all night
Moon and stars there up all night

Where have all the dreams of island lovers gone
Gone to Hawaii, every one
Where have all the dreams of island lovers gone
Gone to Hawaii, every one
Gone to Hawaii, every one



Blue And Green (08/20/2002) (#156)

Polynesian blue and lavender green
If I were a Hawaiian king
I would need a polynesian queen
To give to her an engagement ring

I told you so, and don’t you know
I even told myself, yes, I told me so
Will you be my polynesian queen
Dressed in Hawaiian lavender green

We will say our vows by a pretty island bay
On a pretty Hawaiian island day
You’ll be dressed in a dress of lavender green
Then I will be a Hawaiian king
And you will be my polynesian queen

Polynesian blue and lavender green
When I am a Hawaiian king
You will be my polynesian queen
Dressed in polynesian blue and lavender green
Polynesian blue and lavender green



Many Things (08/20/2002) (#157)

There are some things I will do for money
But some things can I for money never do
I will buy you diamonds and gold for money
But with only money real love just will not do

There are some things I can see with money
But somethings can I for money never see
I will buy you tickets to the movies with money
But with mere money your dreams I cannot see

There are some things I will show of money
But some things can I for money never show
I will show you a rich man’s house of money
But with money real happiness cannot be shown

There are some things I can be for money
But some things can I for money never be
I can be a great big movie star for money
But with mere money real love could never be

There are many things I can do, and I can see
And many things I can show and I can be
But, darling, the only thing I ever want to do
Is to be with you and forever say I love you



Million Dollar Bill (08/20/2002) (#158)

I found a million dollar bill
By the old sugar mill
It gave me such a thrill
It had a picture of you

The moon was shining still
On the old sugar mill
The million dollar bill
Was really a picture of you

The palm trees gently swayed
To love’s serenade
The moon and the stars stayed there until
We fell in love by the old sugar mill

You gave me you hand
The moon had a hand in it still
I found a million dollar bill
By the old sugar mill
I found a million dollar bill
By the old sugar mill



Malina (08/20/2002) (#159)

Malina, Malina, the flowers are bright
The shorebirds have taken to flight
And the rainbows have put on their glow
You can almost touch their gold, and so
Come down to the seashore, Malina

Malina, Malina, time for love has arrived
Come away from your make believe life
Look around with all your charm
This island boy has open arms, Malina

Until the tradewinds stop blowing along
Until the moon stops smiling on my island home
Until the stars above stop giving their light
My heart is never abating, I will wait

Malina, Malina, the flowers are bright
The shorebirds have taken to flight
And the rainbows have put on their glow
You can almost touch their gold, and so
Come down to the seashore, Malina

Malina, Malina, time for love has arrived
Come away from your make believe life
Look around with all your charm
This island boy has open arms, Malina
Malina



Lovely Island Dream (08/20/2002) (#160)

Lovely island dream
Beneath the tropic moon awaiting
Lovely island dream
You loved him so

Seems like the time passes to hours
The hours pass into days
But this lovely island dream smiles and says
She whispers low

The stars and moon and I know
That he will be faithful
He said he would return and show
That he loves me so

But if he doesn’t return to me
Then I will just be
A lonely island dream
A lonely island dream



Runabout (08/20/2002) (#161)

Hey, boat captain, sail over to the bay
She said she would be over there today
If the winds are wrong, sail on an angle tack
Boat captain, sail over to the little grass shack

Hey, boat captain, what do you think she’ll say
Will she come aboard, or will she keep my love at bay
She said she would be over there today
Boat captain, hope this is not a runabout in the bay

Hey, boat captain, wait here by the dock
Maybe she forgot to set her nautical clock
Let me see if I can get her heart unlocked
Boat captain, wait here by the dock

Hey, boat captain, thought this was a tropical zone
All I heard was a cold, better leave me alone
Hope I can find a sweet island girl to call my own
Boat captain, better set a course straight back home

Boat captain, sail you and me back home
Boat captain, sail you and me back home



Golden Treasure (08/20/2002) (#162)

You can cause my tropic sun to rise
Your lips are moistened with the rainbow’s dew
You can cause my heart to percolate
On this island made for love for me and you

Your kiss is just as sweet as angel cake
Someone like you took a miracle to make
Your lovely hula sway is Hawaii’s way to say
Aloha dreamers, bring your dreams to me today

Your smile can bring a rainbow to color up the sky
I’m glad I have that same bow, and here’s the reason why
I have found a golden treasure, and we see eye to eye
Our love will last forever, we’ll never have to say goodby

Love can cause tomorrow to be just like today
Hawaii calls and moon and stars come with no delay
I have found a golden treasure, and we see eye to eye
Our love will last forever, we’ll never have to say goodby
Our love will last forever, we’ll never have to say goodby



Just Honey (08/20/2002) (#163)

If I bought you a diamond ring, it might fit too tight
But if I could bring you island love, would you say that’s alright
I feel a little funny and I’m aflutter like a dove
Could I just bring you honey and sweeten our sweet love

If I bought you a wedding ring, would it fit just right
I just want to let you know that you are my starlight
If we could set a wedding day, would it be blessed above
Could I just bring you honey and sweeten our sweet love

I don’t have much more to give, but for love there is a lot
I’m all tied up for words to say, like in a truelove’s knot
If you could read my mind, it’s not money I thinking of
Could I just bring you honey and sweeten our sweet love

If I bought you a diamond ring, it might fit too tight
If I bought you a wedding ring, would it fit just right
If we could set a wedding day, would it be blessed above
Could I just bring you honey and sweeten our sweet love
Could I just bring you honey and sweeten our sweet love



Love Will Linger (08/21/2002) (#164)

Today your hula dance is like grace on a beautiful note
Tomorrow your song will be like a love song that I wrote
The moonlight above is mellow and the stars becon to me
To sing an island love song as moonbeams light the sea

The melody of your love lingers on and on and on with me
That is something which no one could ever take, you see
Your touch is like a fond caress of gentle tradewinds as they blow
It’s no wonder that I wonder if this dream will ever go

I like the way you comb your hair and how you smile at me
I like the way you sing my songs with love and generosity
I like the way you make my dreams become reality
Best of all, I love the way our love will linger for eternity

The melody of your love lingers on and on and on with me
That is something which no one could ever take, you see
I like the way you make my dreams become reality
Best of all, I love the way our love will linger for eternity
I love the way our love will linger for eternity



The Fishermen’s Song (08/21/2002) (#165)

When over Hawaii the red sun sinks into the sea
And the full moon arises with beams for to see
Fishermen in little boats throw nets from the bow
And their song from a distance is heard even now

Aloha, Aloha, Alohawaii, be faithful, be faithful my love unto me
I will come back tomorrow to fish from your sea
Aloha, Aloha, Alohawaii, be faithful to me

Follow the stars, from the heavens they shine
To guide the men fishing to fish for to find
The stars guide the fishermen which all of them know
And they sing their fishing song at night as they go

Aloha, Aloha, Alohawaii, be faithful, be faithful my love unto me
I will come back tomorrow to fish from your sea
Aloha, Aloha, Alohawaii, be faithful to me

See the little boats of the fishermen way out on the sea
The ocean is restless and waves crash on the reef
Fishermen in little boats throw nets from the bow
And their song from a distance is heard even now

Aloha, Aloha, Alohawaii, be faithful, be faithful my love unto me
I will come back tomorrow to fish from your sea
Aloha, Aloha, Alohawaii, be faithful to me
Alohawaii, be faithful to me



Capture A Moonbeam (08/21/2002) (#166)

I will capture a moonbeam for your wedding gown
And when I have captured a moonbeam, next is a crown
I will capture some starlight the whole island ’round
To light up your dreams and to light up your crown

I will paint you a rainbow in skies just for you
With soft island breezes and palm trees for two
A cottage to love in that’s made just for three
That’s you and me, darling, and children to be

Love is of big things and small things that endure
Like saying Aloha, I love you Madame and Monsieur
You captured my heart and my love, that’s for sure
Be mine forever, my darling, my love for you is secure

I will capture a moonbeam for your wedding gown
And when I have captured a moonbeam, next is a crown
I will capture some starlight the whole island ’round
To light up your dreams and to light up your crown



Pretty Things (08/21/2002) (#167)

Your beauty is of pretty things
Like the starlight in your eyes
When first I saw you, I was just too shy
But then you smiled and shyness said goodbye

Your beauty is of pretty things
Like being wonderful to hold
My dreams are all of pretty things
Of you and island songs to sing

There must be many ways to tell you
Of the pretty things I see in you
I would try to count all of the ways
But life has simply not the days to lose

Your beauty is of pretty things
Like just knowing that for me you cared
Beauty seems always in the little things
Like memories of all the time we’ve shared

Your beauty is of pretty things
Like being wonderful to hold
My dreams are all of pretty things
Of you and island songs to sing
Your beauty is of pretty things



Sweet Island Dream (08/21/2002) (#168)

The palm trees are swaying against the wind
It’s as if they want to bend, closer to you
I see your hula sway and I can only say
That my heart seems to bend your way too

I see all the shorebirds gathered ’round
Your favorite picnic spot on the ground
Could it be that even birds have found
That close to you is the best place around

Has the night sky fallen down to the sea
Or have all the stars just come closer to see
What the palm trees and birds have already seen
That I have found you, my sweet island dream

An angel of loveliness can be seen in your face
No wonder Hawaii is such an inviting place
The stars and palm trees and birds have seen
That I have found you, my sweet island dream
My sweet island dream



Dreams Do Come True (08/21/2002) (#169)

I remember the luau and the song you were singing
That was the first luau but it was only the beginning
Of wonderful times on this island of make believe
Where dreams do come true this midsummer’s eve

Would you sing your love song that you were singing
At the luau where my dream was just beginning
And would you dance through my dream I’m dreaming
While I dream of romance with you as it’s theme

I remember that magical moment when I held you
You seemed to agree that this was agreeable too
Would you sing your love song that you were singing
And would you dance through my dream I’m dreaming

I remember the luau and the song you were singing
That was the first luau but it was only the beginning
Of wonderful times on this island of make believe
Where dreams do come true this midsummer’s eve
Where dreams do come true
Dreams do come true



Middle Of A Dream (08/21/2002) (#170)

I’m in the middle of a dream of you
I’m wide awake, so I know it’s true
I like the way you do the things you do
To make me dream of you

I’m in the middle of a dream, you see
I like the way you smile at me
When I say I think you’re heavenly
I like to dream of you

I like the way you dance when we go out
You’re my object of romance beyond a doubt
I like to squeeze and hold you close
I dream of you the most

It’s not a riddle when I dream of you
It’s plain to see you like me too
So, let’s dream a little dream for two
A little dream will do

I’m in the middle of a dream of you
I’m wide awake, so I know it’s true
I like the way you do the things you do
To make me dream of you
I like the way you do the things you do
To make me dream of you



Hula Fun (08/21/2002) (#171)

Hula, hula, hula, having hula fun
Dancing hula, hula, hula in the sun
When you dance the hula, I’m sure you’ll have some fun
Dancing hula, hula, hula in the sun

All week long I practice
Doing hula ’til I’m blue
I just can’t quite, get it right
But I’ll keep trying and maybe then I might

Hula, hula, hula, having hula fun
Dancing hula, hula, hula in the sun
When you dance the hula, I’m sure you’ll have some fun
Dancing hula, hula, hula in the sun

My sweetie is the reason, why I the hula try
She can do the hula with a twinkle in her eye
She’s my hula cutie, cute as she can be
She trys to teach the hula, hula just to me

Hula, hula, hula, having hula fun
Dancing hula, hula, hula in the sun
When you dance the hula, I’m sure you’ll have some fun
Dancing hula, hula, hula in the sun

My Kumu hula, instructor came to say
That is not a hula, and not a hula sway
You need a lot more practice, forever and a day
Before you can do the hula, or dance a hula sway

Hula, hula, hula, having hula fun
Dancing hula, hula, hula in the sun
When you dance the hula, I’m sure you’ll have some fun
Dancing hula, hula, hula in the sun
When you dance the hula, I’m sure you’ll have some fun
Dancing hula, hula, hula in the sun



Someday (08/21/2002) (#172)

Hawaii, you’re the island for which I’m longing
My Hawaii, where dreams have always come true
You know I love you and there I’m belonging
Someday, I’ll sail back to the love that I knew

Hurry, I’m wasting my time just dreaming of you only
My Hawaii, where dreams have always come true
I’m writing to say that I miss you and that I’m lonely
Someday, I’ll sail back to my island of blue

Leilani, my darling, I dream of returning to you
My Hawaii, where dreams have always come true
Please say that you’ll wait for my love to come through
Someday, I’ll be back in your arms loving you

Hawaii, you’re the island for which I’m longing
My Hawaii, where dreams have always come true
You know I love you and there I’m belonging
Someday, I’ll sail back to the love that I knew
Leilani, my darling, I dream of returning to you
Someday, I’ll be back in your arms loving you



That’s How I Love You (08/21/2002) (#173)

I love you with all my heart, that’s how I love you
May never we have to part, or my heart will fail
Islands are made for being in love, not for blue
Promise you’ll give me forever, your love to avail

I loved you right from the start, that’s when I loved you
You don’t need a navagational chart to know where to find me
I’ll be here by your side whenever you need me
We’ll both do our part to hold a course that is true

I love you with all my heart, that’s how I love you
I loved you right from the start, that’s when I loved you
May never we have to part, or my heart will fail
Promise you’ll give me forever, your love to avail

You don’t need a navagational chart to know where to find me
I’ll be here by your side whenever you need me
Islands are made for being in love, not for blue
I love you with all my heart, that’s how I love you
I love you with all my heart, that’s how I love you



Hawaii Baby (08/21/2002) (#174)

Do you want to go to Hawaii, baby
Maybe, maybe
Are you still my baby, baby
Maybe, maybe

Whenever I ask you how your day went
All I hear is, crazy, crazy
Why don’t we go to Hawaii and be
Lazy, lazy

In Hawaii, you can be my flower lei, baby
Not just a pink paper daisy
If I ask you if you’re still my baby, don’t say
Maybe, maybe

We’re wasting time thinking, it’s making me
Hazy, hazy
Why don’t we go to Hawaii and be
Lazy, lazy

In Hawaii we could be wining and dining

No whining
Let’s go to Hawaii and this time tommorow
No sorrow

This could go on forever but it’s worth
All Endeavor
To help you discover that I just want to be
Your lover
Let’s go to Hawaii, baby



Polynesian Star (08/21/2002) (#175)

Little island girl with polynesian eyes so bright
Sweet island girl, I love you, yes I do
You look just as lovely as the moon tonight
Be my island love and say you love me too

Your smile always brings the rainbows with their gold
You’re my island sweetheart to love and to hold
A gem of Hawaiian coral is not as pretty as you are
That’s why I know you must be a polynesian star

When I see a palm tree swaying in the breeze
I know you’re just as graceful and prettier to see
You’re like the spice of asia, a value far above
Any other nice fantasia that I could ever love

Little island girl with polynesian eyes so bright
You look just as lovely as the moon tonight
A gem of Hawaiian coral is not as pretty as you are
That’s why I know you must be a polynesian star
You really are my polynesian star



Siren Call (08/22/2002) (#176)

I hear the sound of thunder crashing
On the reef outside the bay
It’s the siren call of distant oceans
Calling me again to sea this day

When the ocean waves are pounding
On the reef outside the bay
I must go and I must leave you
On this island here to stay

One day I’ll return and hope it’s not too late
To ask your hand in marriage, dear
And set our wedding date
But I hear the siren call so clear, so clear

Although I must go today to face the pounding
Of the oceans waves outside the reef
I promise I’ll come back to follow soundings
Of the siren call to you to bring my heart relief

So, please wait for me, my island love
As I go to sea once more, I pray
When I return that I will no more answer
The siren call of thunder on the reef outside the bay
The siren call of thunder on the reef outside the bay



Moonlight Hill (08/22/2002) (#177)

Every night is my delight when I hold you close on moonlight hill
You’re the only island girl I love to kiss up by the old sugar mill
I hope you don’t mind me knocking at your door like a busy man
It’s just that I only want to see you again just as often as I can

Tomorrow, down by the boat docks ’round about four o’clock
I’ll meet you there by the public square to set love’s building block
I love you, dear, and to make it clear, I’ll even chisel it in stone
Say you will be my wife, so we can start a life of love for us alone

Some sweet day we can think back when our love we did instill
On our hearts and in our lives, on this island up on moonlight hill
Until that day, I will call to say that you’re the island girl I love
Promise me that you will try to be my sweetheart island dove

Every night is my delight when I hold you close on moonlight hill
You’re the only island girl I love to kiss up by the old sugar mill
Some sweet day we can think back when our love we did instill
On our hearts and in our lives, on this island up on moonlight hill
On this island up on moonlight hill
On this island up on moonlight hill



Like Yesterday (08/22/2002) (#178)

Remember the time when we soaked up island sun
And went to that little island school where we had fun
Then the time when we wore each’s graduation ring
Those were such lovely yesteryears, like yesterday

Remember when we played music in the little band
And wrote letters of puppy love in the island sand
Those days so nice, dripping Hawaiian shaved ice
And had to listen as our parents offered their advice

Our favorite space at the International Market Place
Where we lingered long over coffee cold as stone
But we didn’t care because love was in the island air
I still love to hear you say, let’s go again, like yesterday

If you look real close, you see that most of the island trees
Still has a heart or two carved with names of me and you
That was yesterday, but each tomorrow will be that way
Because I still love you with all my heart, like yesterday
I still love you with all my heart, like yesterday



Tuberose (08/22/2002) (#179)

Tuberose,
Tuberose,
Island beauty,
You please me

Lovely and white,
Fragrant and bright
Islands are happy
To greet thee

Flower of love,
Blessed from above
Spread Aloha
Forever

Tuberose,
Tuberose,
Bless my island
Forever



Dreams Of Gold (08/23/2002) (#180)

Remember when the tradewinds blew
Upon bays of emerald blue so bold
Remember when the clouds were rainbow hues
As we walked under skies of gold

The tradewinds sang of love’s refrain
Upon bays of emerald blue so bold
You fell into my arms with no need to explain
Love’s kiss under skies of gold

Will you always be my only love
By bays of emerald blue so bold
And never let a day go by devoid of
Love’s kiss under skies of gold

Watch as tradewinds caress the palms
Like a lover’s graceful hands unfold
Feel of love’s delightful balm
On island lovers’ dreams of gold

Remember when the tradewinds blew
Upon bays of emerald blue so bold
You fell into my arms with no need to explain
Love’s kiss under skies of gold

Will you always be my only love
By bays of emerald blue so bold
Feel of love’s delightful balm
On island lovers’ dreams of gold



Whaling (08/23/2002) (#181)

I see my ship a-sailin’, sailin’ on the waves
But I ain’t been a-whalin’ since many an island day
I’m stuck here on this island, and it’s been too long
Since I went a-sailin’ and sang a sailor’s song

My daddy told me about bein’ a whalin’ man
He said, whalin’ ain’t no good life for a sailin’ man
But I harpooned a whale in Artic waters, and
Now I’m dreamin’ of the next voyage to whalin’ land

I know landlubbers look at me and make their faces frown
But I just can’t stand it if I’m not in whalin’ grounds
They probably think I’m drinkin’ and salty as can be
Well, they’re right and I’m thinkin’ its whaling time for me

Whalin’ ain’t no good life, but it’s the one for me
Old Lahaina town is where I’ve spent life when I’m not out at sea
So, here comes my ship a-sailin’, sailin’ on the waves
I’ll soon be back a-whalin’ ’til they stick me in my grave

Whalin’ ain’t no good life, but it’s the one for me
Old Lahaina town is where I’ve spent life when I’m not out at sea
So, here comes my ship a-sailin’, sailin’ on the waves
I’ll soon be back a-whalin’ ’til they stick me in my grave



Love’s New Rule (08/23/2002) (#182)

New hearts fall in love in time that’s just a blur
New hearts let their hearts sing a brand new tune
The only proof you need is an island girl to purr
Add in some golden beams from an island moon

When you see island love like tiki torches burn
New hearts demand to give that island love a turn
I used to think that I could learn to play it cool
Say Aloha to a heart in love with love’s new rule

New hearts fall in love like little boys and girls
Reason overruled by rainbow colored schemes
One lovely island girl will let her hula arms unfurl
Say Aloha to a heart in love with love’s new dreams

Now we’re making plans for our new island love
Learning how to live Aloha under island stars above
I used to think that I could learn to play it cool
Say Aloha to a heart in love with love’s new rule
I used to think that I could learn to play it cool
Say Aloha to a heart in love with love’s new rule



That Moment In Time (08/23/2002) (#183)

Island life was beautiful at that moment in time
When we were dutiful of love’s calling chime
Times were happy then despite the daily grind
Maybe we can capture back that moment in time

Island days were lovely then, as were the nights
We viewed our island love like a panoramic sight
Love like days back then was as beauty sublime
Maybe we can capture back that moment in time

Let’s give love a new reprieve and turn back the time
To island days like those when love was so sublime
Put aside the busy days, say goodby to daily grind
In Hawaii we can capture back that moment in time

Island life was beautiful at that moment in time
When we were dutiful of love’s calling chime
Let’s give love a new reprieve and turn back the time
To island days like those when love was so sublime
Put aside the busy days, say goodby to daily grind
In Hawaii we can capture back that moment in time
Capture back that moment in time



Stream Of Time (08/23/2002) (#184)

An island is just an island in streams of time, some people say
Hurrying to burn their candles from both ends along life’s way
Never giving thought of time and love that’s slipping away
But you and I know islands aren’t just in the stream of time

Islands are for lovers, not just for games that people do
Games of life are wasting life for people not on island time
By themselves and all alone, even in a crowd they’re blue
But you and I know islands aren’t just in the stream of time

When we spend some island time for our love to renew
New leaves we turn while candles burn, yours and mine
The flame of love burns in our hearts through and through
And you and I know islands aren’t just in the stream of time

Islands are for lovers, not just for games that people do
Games of life are wasting life for people not on island time
By themselves and all alone, even in a crowd they’re blue
But you and I know islands aren’t just in the stream of time

The flame of love burns in our hearts through and through
And you and I know islands aren’t just in the stream of time
You and I know islands aren’t just in the stream of time



Magic Island Spell (08/23/2002) (#185)

Oh yes, you’re the great heart mender
Mending my heart with your magic spell
I concede this much, you have the touch
I’m happy to be under your magic spell

Oh yes, you’re the great heart mender
A gift of an island tropic zone
I don’t feel the same, my heart is aflame
This island dream my heart will atone

I feel your appealing love I receive
Is healing my heart with your lovely appeal
This island has such a wonderful touch
With your love, that’s so lovely to reveal

Oh yes, you’re the great heart mender
On an island where love is reknown
I dream you will be the only love for me
I swear that my love for you will be around
Reminding me of your magic island spell
Reminding me of your magic island spell



Coconut Wireless (08/26/2002) (#186)

Today, it has become to me quite clear
This is not just another tropical year
Our feelings are not just a fraternity
The love we share belongs to eternity

You may not hear it on the island radio
May not even hear it on the telephone
Might not be in the Sunday morning island press
Love will be in the coconut wireless, nonetheless

Yesterday I could have told you so
Our future was set a long time ago
Love as ours has a long time to go
Forever is time enough for love to grow

The mainland may sink into the sea
But islands were meant for you and me
So, listen to the coconut wireless, dear
It says love like ours will never disappear

You may not hear it on the island radio
Might not be in the Sunday morning island press
So, listen to the coconut wireless, dear
It says love like ours will never disappear



Waiting Here For You (08/26/2002) (#187)

Until Mauna Kea snow fall in Waikiki
When islands have no macadamia trees
Until my dreams of you have all come true
You know I’ll be waiting here for you

Until beams of love quit shining from the moon
When ukuleles and island guitars run out of tune
Until outriggers don’t go with island canoes
You know I’ll be waiting here for you

Every night I dream this dream of you
It doesn’t end, but who wants it to
I don’t comprehend all there is of you
But I know enough for love that’s true

Until outriggers don’t go with island canoes
Until my dreams of you have all come true
Until beams of love quit shining from the moon
You know I’ll be waiting here for you
I’ll be waiting here for you



Must Be Hula Love (08/26/2002) (#188)

I’m in love with the girl with the grass skirt on
She does the hula with flirt that’s all her own
I really would like to take her home
I’m in love with the girl with the grass skirt on

I wonder if she ever takes a night off
Maybe she won’t just laugh and scoff
I think I’ll take a chance and ask her out
It’s not too much a task to think about

I’m in love with the girl with the grass skirt on
She does the hula with flirt that’s all her own
Makes my heart go jump like a spark advance
It was headfirst love at the very first glance

I’m in love with the girl with the grass skirt on
She does the hula with flirt that’s all her own
Not sure what you call it, but it’s suggestive of
An island romance so it must be hula love
Not sure what you call it, but it’s suggestive of
An island romance so it must be hula love



Love’s Variety Show (08/26/2002) (#189)

I used to believe the worst things I heard
Before I listened to the little shorebird
He said don’t believe everything I’ve heard
You can read love here with no written word

Sometimes I’m sure and sometimes I’m not
Is love secure in this island vacation spot
I wonder if the island tradewinds know
Or do the mountain highlands make love grow

Seems I have more questions than answers here
Love comes ashore dressed in dancers’ gear
I’ll dance with love until I know I’m sure
You’re my beloved and one that will endure

Now I’m glad I listened to the little shorebird
Now I know that the island tradewinds know
The mountain highlands really make love grow
It’s like the island put on love’s variety show
It’s like the island put on love’s variety show



Night Bloom (08/26/2002) (#190)

When the sun’s not around and stars abound
Your love is what my world revolves around
By the moon above and the stars so bright
I can see that our love does bloom at night

Tradewinds are soft and it feels alright
When I kiss your lips ‘neath the full moonlight
Whisper low and tell me true
Are you my only love in paradise for two

I think I can hear an island lullabye
Singing low on the winds that underlie
A paradise for two in love, you see
I want to feel it through all eternity

When the sun’s not around and stars abound
The man in the moon spreads love around
By the moon above and the stars so bright
I can see that our love does bloom at night
I can see that our love does bloom at night



Best Thing In Love (08/26/2002) (#191)

I thought I was going on a shopping spree
She said the best things in life are sometimes free
Living’s not easy but we both agree
The best things in love are you and me
The best things in love are you and me

You and me on a shopping spree
You and me and love makes three
I love you and you love me
The best things in love are you and me
The best things in love are you and me

I wouldn’t pay a dime for most men’s time
But I can shop with you ’til the end of time
Our love is not five and dime, you see
The best things in love are you and me
The best things in love are you and me

Our end of the island is not Rodeo Drive
Don’t need Hollywood to make our love survive
The moonlight and stars above are all we need
The best things in love are you and me
The best things in love are you and me

I thought I was going on a shopping spree
She said the best things in life are sometimes free
Living’s not easy but we both agree
The best things in love are you and me
The best things in love are you and me



When The Day Is Done (08/27/2002) (#192)

Every day is like Kona coffee and a cinnamon bun
I dream away and say hello to the morning sun
I smile to myself and tell me too it’s a lot of fun
Fun is being in love with you when the day is done

Pretty soon the sun strikes noon and I’m awake
Daydreaming of you and wondering what it takes
To make every day taste like that cinnamon bun
Fun is being in love with you when the day is done

By five I’m really alive and I’m out the door
Love is on automatic drive to see you some more
Love is better than super glue, it’s a sticky bun
Fun is being in love with you when the day is done

The night has come and you’re the one in my arms
A dream comes true when I’m under all you charms
Can’t sleep a wink but I think it’s gonna be fun
Fun is being in love with you when the day is done

Every day is like Kona coffee and a cinnamon bun
I dream away and say hello to the morning sun
Love is better than super glue, it’s a sticky bun
Fun is being in love with you when the day is done



Always And Forever (08/27/2002) (#193)

Forever I’ll be loving you, evermore
We will love in Hawaii, evermore
Build castles in the sand on the shore
And live in castles in the air, evermore

If you ever need more help throughout the day
My love will always be without delay, evermore
Don’t be afraid whether weather rains or pours
Forever I’ll be loving you, evermore

We will plan our work and work our plan
To love each other all we can, evermore
Life may not be fair as when love began
But always and forever we will love, evermore

We will love in Hawaii in a cottage by the shore
Stay in castles in the air, evermore
We won’t fear whether weather rains or pours
We’ll always and forever be in love, evermore
We’ll always and forever be in love, evermore



A Matter Of Heart (08/27/2002) (#194)

Blue seas and rainbows smile at me
Tradewinds blew love for all to see
Shorebirds are soaring all day long
And my heart strings are strumming songs

I don’t remember the blue sky quite so bright
You flipped love’s switch like an electric light
I’m blinded by love but it feels just fine
It’s just a matter of heart and a state of mind

I know I set the clock for a quarter past seven
Don’t know if it’s day or night in island heaven
I don’t need an alarm when you’re in my arms
I’m in your prison farm with your island charms

I don’t remember the blue sky quite so bright
You flipped love’s switch like an electric light
I’m blinded by love but it feels just fine
It’s just a matter of heart and a state of mind

I’m blinded by love but it feels just fine
It’s just a matter of heart and a state of mind
It’s just a matter of heart and a state of mind



Love And Dreams (08/27/2002) (#195)

I used to never believe in love
I never wished upon stars above
But with you on this moonlit sand
This feeling I can’t misunderstand

I never thought about golden moon beams
Having anything to do with love and dreams
Until I kissed you down here at Waikiki
How I missed your love is just a mystery

Never thought much of Michaelangelo
Just another painter on a high plateau
Then I saw you move in this tropic zone
Not just a lovely sculpture made of stone

I heard a song about a glow worm glow
And I’ve seen fireflies winking as they go
But I never felt aglow as I do tonight
Especially when you turned out the light

I never wished upon stars above
I used to never believe in love
Now I know about golden moon beams
And a lot more about love and dreams
And a lot more about love and dreams



Riddles For Two (08/27/2002) (#196)

I wouldn’t mind loving you
I mean I wouldn’t care to not care about you
I mean I would care if I didn’t care about you
What I mean is I just love you, I truly do

You’re a state of enchantment
But your license plate says Hawaii, not New Mexico
You don’t need any enhancement
Your lovely poetic license doesn’t need a state, I know

I dreamed I dreamed a dream of you
Of you I dreamed I dreamed a dream
Any way you say it, I like the way it says
Love is this, his is her’s and her’s is his

An island breeze is likely to please
But I just squeeze and my heart you seize
You can keep on playing riddles with me
I’ll figure you out literally, I mean eventually
You can keep on playing riddles for two
We’ll fiddle around ’til love comes through



Polynesian Surprise (08/27/2002) ( #197)

Thought I had seen love everywhere
Then I moved to your island there
Polynesian eyes
Polynesian surprise

The boys were in Maui but they’re here today
Island hoppin’, hopin’ you’ll come out to play
Polynesian eyes
Polynesian surprise

I saw you in the marketplace
I’m not island hoppin’, just window shoppin’
To get a glance at your face
Polynesian eyes
Polynesian surprise

Can I sit with you on your lanai
Hold your hand and say I love you
In time you may even say “I do”
Polynesian eyes
Polynesian surprise
Polynesian eyes
Polynesian surprise



Islands Of Lazy Dreams (08/27/2002) (#198)

Look out for golden moonbeams
And drums from islands in the sun
Look out for happy years ahead
When I ask of you, can I thee wed

We’ll love on islands of lazy dreams
Live on islands in proverbial streams
You will be the one I’m singing of
When we sing songs of island love

You’ll be happy and I will too
Living on islands in streams of blue
Nights will bring the nicest prize
Starlight gleems from your sweet eyes

Whatever is mine will all be yours
Won’t need a vacation or a mainland tour
Paradise is just an island away
Your love is a sweet lei fragrant bouquet

We’ll love on islands of lazy dreams
Live on islands in proverbial streams
You will be the one I’m singing of
When we sing songs of island love



Talkin’ ‘Bout Lahaina (08/27/2002) (#199)

It’s never lonesome in that old town
Nobody ever puts you down
Friendly faces never frown
Talkin’ ’bout Lahaina, old Lahaina town

If you’ve got holes in your pockets
Friendship comes in and you can dock it
Nothing there will get you down
Talkin’ ’bout Lahaina, old Lahaina town

If you’re hungry with nowhere to sleep
Don’t be lonely and don’t you weep
Friends there won’t take it lying down
Talkin’ ’bout Lahaina, old Lahaina town

If it’s raining in your old town
Don’t let the weather get you down
I know a place where ohana sounds
Talkin’ ’bout Lahaina, old Lahaina town

It’s never lonesome in that old town
Nobody ever puts you down
Friendly faces never frown
Talkin’ ’bout Lahaina, old Lahaina town
Talkin’ ’bout Lahaina, old Lahaina town



Two Hundred (08/27/2002) (#200)

Two hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Two hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Two hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun

If you ever ask me how long for you my love will be
Two hundred lifetimes, then we would wait and see
If I could do it over, not a thing would I ever change
I could sing you island songs of love that I’ve arranged

If you ever ask me how deep for you my love will be
I can only tell you that my love is deeper than the sea
Two hundred fathoms down lives cousin Davy Jones
Says I got more songs to write about these tropic zones

Two hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Two hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Two hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun
Two hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun
