Beyond The Sunset (Larry W. Jones 11/11/2003) (song#2201)

 

Beyond the sunset
Over the far flung sea
Songs are sung there yet
On the isle of Kauai

When Kauai calls to you
There is where you must go
Beyond the sunset
To the isle of Kauai

The tradewinds whisper
That love is in the air
Cinderella’s slipper
Might even be found there

Beyond the sunset
Over the far flung sea
Songs are sung there yet
On the isle of Kauai

When Kauai calls to you
There is where you must go
Beyond the sunset
To the isle of Kauai



Everlastingly (Larry W. Jones 11/11/2003) (song#2202)

 

You will have my love everlastingly
My love has been cast everlastingly
Deep in my heart is where it starts
Here in this tropic zone
You make love shine
That’s why you’re mine
And mine alone

You will have my love everlastingly
No one else would do, my dear, it’s true
Even if the stars should fall
From the heavens vast
My love for you is cast
When the islands call
Everlastingly

Even if the stars should fall
From the heavens vast
My love for you is cast
When the islands call
Everlastingly



Lasting And Serene (Larry W. Jones 11/12/2003) (song#2203)

 

Island love, I see her standing there
Island love, fresh as the tropic air
One love, two hearts in Hawaii blue
True island love I have found in you

Like a tuberose where breezes blow
Love so fragrant was meant to grow
Island love, lasting and serene
This island scene and you

It satisfies my heart’s desire
Quenches all the thirst
When island love is beginning
Rainbows shine like fireworks burst

They warm us from the skies above
Lasting and serene island love
Two tiki torches that burn as one
Midnight moon and tropic sun

Time and space and things thereof
Brought island love that’s evergreen
Lasting and serene
Lasting and serene



On Starlight Bay (Larry W. Jones 11/12/2003) (song#2204)

 

(Sailing underneath the stars, where moonbeams play)
We were sailing underneath the stars on starlight bay
Steel guitars were softly ringing
With love songs that seemed to say
Two hearts have taken flight
It’s the island way of singing
When two hearts unite
Underneath the stars on starlight bay

(We were sailing underneath the stars on starlight bay)
(Steel guitars were softly ringing)
(With love songs that seemed to say)
Two hearts have taken flight
It’s the island way of singing
When two hearts unite
(Underneath the stars on starlight bay)

We were sailing underneath the stars on starlight bay
Steel guitars were softly ringing
With love songs that seemed to say
Two hearts have taken flight (Two hearts have taken flight)
It’s the island way of singing
When two hearts unite
Underneath the stars on starlight bay
(Sailing underneath the stars on starlight bay)



Blue Island Shore (Larry W. Jones 11/12/2003) (song#2205)

 

These tears inside could fill an empty ocean
You forgot that this was paradise
And though you left with no emotion
Aloha ‘oe to me doesn’t mean goodbye

On every isle there’s somebody blue
Someone has a heart with broken strings
And I’m the angel with the broken wings
Yes, on every isle there’s somebody blue

It would be best if I had never met you
I’m bluer than I ever was before
But darling, I just can’t forget you
Please come back to my blue island shore

Some fine day you’ll find another fool, dear
Another island angel just as true
Broken wings and heart strings is so cruel, dear
Don’t make her cry the way I cry for you

On every isle there’s somebody blue
Someone has a heart with broken strings
And I’m the angel with the broken wings
Yes, on every isle there’s somebody blue

It would be best if I had never met you
I’m bluer than I ever was before
But darling, I just can’t forget you
Please come back to my blue island shore
Please come back to my blue island shore



Island Ways (Larry W. Jones 11/12/2003) (song#2206)

 

Kalua pig makes a fine roaster
Fish and poi is a-gettin’ mighty closer
Luau time sure is fine down by the bay

Hula girls hips are swaying slower
Turns tiki torches into flame throwers
Luau time sure is fine down by the bay

Island ways seem so much finer
Dreams come true with just a one liner
Down by the bay there’s a song for
My love and me

Kalua pig makes a fine roaster
Fish and poi is a-gettin’ mighty closer
Luau time sure is fine down by the bay

Hula girls hips are swaying slower
Turns tiki torches into flame throwers
Luau time sure is fine down by the bay

Island ways seem so much finer
Dreams come true with just a one liner
Down by the bay there’s a song for
My love and me

Kalua pig makes a fine roaster
Fish and poi is a-gettin’ mighty closer
Luau time sure is fine down by the bay
Luau time sure is fine down by the bay



Eleven Red Red Roses (Larry W. Jones 11/12/2003) (song#2207)

 

Eleven red, red roses are what I sent today
Eleven red, red roses for someone feeling blue
I’m the one who’s feeling blue since you went away
Look into the mirror to see the missing rose is you

I chose them from a vendor down by the bay
Eleven red, red roses with tender words to say
The island of many flowers is missing one, it’s true
Look into the mirror to see the missing rose is you

I know eleven red, red roses don’t make a spray
But heaven knows I need you each and every day
The note with eleven red, red roses will say I’m blue
Look into the mirror to see the missing rose is you

I hope that you’ll accept them just as they are
I grope to try to find my way without a guiding star
I can’t cope without you when I’m feeling blue
Look into the mirror to see the missing rose is you

Eleven red, red roses are what I sent today
Eleven red, red roses for someone feeling blue
I’m the one who’s feeling blue since you went away
Look into the mirror to see the missing rose is you

I chose them from a vendor down by the bay
Eleven red, red roses with tender words to say
The island of many flowers is missing one, it’s true
Look into the mirror to see the missing rose is you



You Are My Island Love (Larry W. Jones 11/12/2003) (song#2208)

 

If I were the sand man
I’d sing you to sleep
If I were a police man
I’d lock up your heart for keeps
But at least I’m an island man
And that makes me the sand man
So, I wrote a song about you
And every word is true

You are my island in the stream
You’re the anchor for my dreams
You’re my life and everything
Every time I dream of you

You are the blue skies of the isle
You are the reason why I smile
You are what makes life worthwhile
Every time I dream of you

Each time I kiss your lips again
Sweet Maui chimes will ring and then
Rainbows will shine again
For you are my island love

You are my island in the stream
You’re the anchor for my dreams
You are the blue skies of the isle
You are the reason why I smile

For you are my island love
You are my island love



Don’t Ever Change (Larry W. Jones 11/12/2003) (song#2209)

 

Don’t ever change your loving ways, baby
For I’ll never stop loving you
No, don’t ever change, baby
Don’t rearrange a dream so true

When we go strolling in old Lahaina town
Even the sun hangs around
And then the moon comes sneakin’ and peepin’
To watch love coming down

How long will this dream go on
Well, forever doesn’t seem too strange
That’s why I say don’t ever change
Baby, you’re my island song

When I come home from work, baby
The cottage is bright and supper is warm
And it’s an extra perk, baby
When you serve love with all your charms
Don’t ever change your loving ways, baby
For I’ll never stop loving you
No, don’t ever change, baby
Don’t rearrange a dream so true

How long will this dream go on
Well, forever doesn’t seem too strange
That’s why I say don’t ever change
Baby, you’re my island song



Precisely Like You (Larry W. Jones 11/12/2003) (song#2210)

Through the years I have waited
Through tears and dreams that have faded
And now my heart is elated
For someone precisely like you

I don’t need any money
On an isle that’s so sunny
To find love sweet as honey
With someone precisely like you

Here in this warm island sand
You bring to life all that is grand
Someone like you is always in demand
Someone precisely like you

Now, my dear island mother
Said true love should not be smothered
Ohana love is like no other
It’s precisely like you

Here in this warm island sand
You bring to life all that is grand
Someone like you is always in demand
Someone precisely like you

I don’t need any money
On an isle that’s so sunny
To find love sweet as honey
With someone precisely like you



Remember Our Island Love (Larry W. Jones 11/12/2003) (song#2211)

 

As I thumb through the albumn
Of pictures by the sea
I’m as blue as Hawaiian skies above
And I think about the times
When we heard sweet Maui chimes
And I remember our island love

I miss you, Leilani
By the shore where breezes blow
As rainbows would miss the sun above
The silvery ocean
Holds the tears of my woe
And I remember our island love

Good things seem to never last
Dreams in this paradise
Hand in hand with you I’m thinking of
No time is the right time for Aloha ‘oe goodbye
And I remember our island love

I miss you, Leilani
By the shore where breezes blow
As rainbows would miss the sun above
The silvery ocean
Holds the tears of my woe
And I remember our island love



On South Padre Island (Larry W. Jones 11/12/2003) (song#2212)

 

On south padre island
Down Texas Mexico way
There’s room for us two
I would be a cast-a-way, any day
On south padre island
With you

On south padre island
There’s lots of fun things to do
But for me there’s just one thing
Falling in love that’s true
On south padre island
With you

We could stroll for awhile
While I look into your eyes of blue
Watch the waves gently roll for a mile
It would be paradise for two
On south padre island
With you

We would kick off our cowboy boots
Sit on the beach eating clambake stew
In island attire you’d look so very cute
Life would be airy and fresh as new
On south padre island
With you

On south padre island
I would be a cast-a-way, any day
With you



Sails Of Silk (Larry W. Jones 11/13/2003) (song#2213)

The sails on my ship are made of silk
To sail the oceans bold
And the hold is full of ivory white as milk
Of which I’ll turn to gold

Black pearls from the southern seas
Are coming on the wind
And I will do just as I please
When my ship of gold comes in

I’ve been waiting many days
For my ship through the mist and haze
One day in the early fall
I will hear the islands call
But all the gold on my ship is not for what I gaze

I will not care for a ship with sails of silk
Nor a hold full of south seas gold within
Nor the milk white ivory
If my ship comes in from where it’s been
Without my true island love for me

If my ship comes in from where it’s been
Without my true island love for me



Sail Homeward Angel (Larry W. Jones 11/13/2003) (song#2214)

Yo Ho, where the tradewind blows
That’s where my angel ship goes
E’en though horizon grow dreary
Sail homeward angel, nere you grow weary
For you must cheer me as I steer o’re the sea

O’re there, on that fine shore line
That’s where shines the rainbow
Heigh Ho, I long for one who’s mine
Sail homeward angel, straight as can be
To my love waiting for me

Sail homeward angel, straight as an arrow
Spurred on by the trades of silvery seas
Sail homeward angel, through reef passage narrow
For on her dear island
My love waits for me

Sail homeward angel, straight as an arrow
Spurred on by the trades of silvery seas
Sail homeward angel, through reef passage narrow
Sail homeward angel
My love waits for me



Rosie Leilani (Larry W. Jones 11/13/2003) (song#2215)

Over on the island
On the shore where I reside
Lives a polynesian cutie
The loveliest I’ve spied
Her name is Rosie Leilani
And I can tell this to you
She’s the sweetest island rose
That this isle ever grew

To my lovely island rose
Words of love I constantly said
And everyone here knows
We will one day be wed
Happy we’ll be by the sea
I love my Rosie Leilani
And my Rosie Leilani loves me

I’ll remember forever the day
She gave her heart to mine
As we strolled by the bay
In the warm summertime
And then to stand by my words
There on the sand a fine wedding ring
While in the skies the bluebirds
This love song started to sing

To my lovely island rose
Words of love I constantly said
And everyone here knows
We will one day be wed
Happy we’ll be by the sea
I love my Rosie Leilani
And my Rosie Leilani loves me



Early Winter (Larry W. Jones 11/17/2003) (song#2216)

When an early winter comes with its chilling breeze
It’s thrilling to remember the warmth of tropic seas
But even so, I hope you know
How much I miss you when comes the early winter snow

These warm memories just seem to hang around
Of golden moonlit beams in old Lahaina town
While here the snow man wears an early crown
It’s an early winter in my heart of woe

That island spring brought such memories
It taught us loving touch there by the sea
I never thought a winter would come to be
Not like the early winter in this soul of me

Sweetheart, if you still care, please tell me so
Bring back the spring where tradewinds blow
Rescue my heart from early winter’s snow
So love can start without an early winter

These warm memories just seem to hang around
Of golden moonlit beams in old Lahaina town
That island spring brought such memories
It taught us loving touch there by the sea

Sweetheart, if you still care, please tell me so
Bring back the spring where tradewinds blow
Rescue my heart from early winter’s snow
So love can start without an early winter



Enchanted Love (Larry W. Jones 11/17/2003) (song#2217)

The island is a dream when it’s enchanted
When the moon is on the sea all aglow, they know
True lovers never take it for granted
They just plant love in the sand and watch it grow

Strolling hand in hand is grand with your lover
Your heart will tingle with wonders of delight
And when the daylight comes it will uncover
The same enchanted dreams of island nights

Island love is ecstasy, like time enchanted
When dreams are planted in the sand in paradise

Strolling hand in hand is grand with your lover
Your heart will tingle with wonders of delight
And when the daylight comes it will uncover
The same enchanted dreams of island nights

Island love is ecstasy, like time enchanted
When dreams are planted in the sand in paradise



Eventually (Larry W. Jones 11/17/2003) (song#2218)

You’ll be my island love eventually
By oceans blue where dreams come true, eventually
Its course is already charted in my heart
Your love is in a tropic zone
Sure, I’ve known it all along
That I would find love by the sea
Eventually

You’ll be my island love eventually
By oceans blue where dreams come true, eventually
For no one else will do, my dear, for me
When the islands call
Remember this from me
Into my arms you will fall
Eventually

When the islands call
Remember this from me
Into my arms you will fall
Eventually



Fascinating And Captivating (Larry W. Jones 11/17/2003) (song#2219)

It was fascinating and captivating, I know
And it might been just for show
But a little glance led to a dance
On the isle with you where breezes blow

It was fascinating and captivating, I know
Just being with you right from the start
We danced to the island band with music low
And you fascinated and captivated my heart

That moonlight date was worth the wait in Hawaii blue
You fascinate and captivate my love for you

It was fascinating and captivating, I know
Just being with you right from the start
We danced to the island band with music low
And you fascinated and captivated my heart

That moonlight date was worth the wait in Hawaii blue
You fascinate and captivate my love for you
It was fascinating and captivating, I know



Lei Nani Pakalana (Larry W. Jones 11/18/2003) (song#2220)

Lei nani pakalana
Fragrant flower of the vine so sweet
Lei nani pakalana
I lay this heart of mine at your feet

Lei nani pakalana
Your loveliness is beyond compare
Lei nani pakalana
You are the lovely lei for whom I care

Lei nani pakalana is a fragrant flower on the vine
It’s the flower for the lei worn by my love divine

You are indeed lovely, my lei nani pakalana
From your fragrance I could never part
E ke Aloha ku’u ipo, lei nani pakalana
You are indeed lovely, flower of my heart

Ha`ina mai ka puana la
Let the refrain be told
No ka pua lei nani pakalana
Of my lovely pakalana blossom
Lei nani pakalana, my flower of love



Where Tradewinds Blow (Larry W. Jones 11/18/2003) (song#2221)

Where tradewinds blow
Will we ever meet again
While love’s aglow
Let’s put on our dancing feet, and then

We won’t say Aloha ‘oe
Until the very last minute
They’ll sing our song again
And my words of love will be in it

Where tradewinds blow
Will this be just a dream
A dream that comes and goes
Like an isle lost in the stream

So, let’s fall in love right now
For tomorrow, what do we know
And my heart for you has said its vow
Where tradewinds blow

So, let’s fall in love right now
For tomorrow, what do we know
And my heart for you has said its vow
Where tradewinds blow



No Better Love (Larry W. Jones 11/18/2003) (song#2222)

I’ll stroll in island rain by your side
I’ll hold your gentle hand in mine
My love won’t drift away like the tide
No better love will you ever find

Tradewinds whisper your name to me
Birds of paradise fly above the brine
Palm trees wave when we stroll by the sea
And I can hear sweet Maui chimes

And if you’re ever feeling down
I’ll be there in old Lahaina town
To wipe away your tears if you should cry
For that just won’t do in paradise

And I’ll play you songs of the isle
Before too long I’ll see you smile
Palm trees will wave when you stroll by
For that’s the way love is in paradise

I’ll stroll in island rain by your side
I’ll hold your gentle hand in mine
My love won’t drift away like the tide
No better love will you ever find

My love won’t drift away like the tide
No better love will you ever find



Old Sugar Mill In Kapalana (Larry W. Jones 11/18/2003) (song#2223)

There’s an old sugar mill in Kapalana
That reminds me of my daddy long ago
There’s an old sugar mill in Kapalana
From which memories of island love still flow

There my daddy worked hard every day
For what was even then meager pay
He worked to put the food on the table
And bought us clothes when he was able

There’s an old sugar mill in Kapalana
The windows all have broken panes
There’s an old sugar mill in Kapalana
And memories are all that remains

There my dear old mama in Kapalana
Worked hard every day to raise us kids
Ohana love was always there in Kapalana
None better than my dear old mama did

Every time when I go back to Kapalana
To visit their resting place by the bay
I see the old sugar mill in Kapalana
And remember the love of island days

There my daddy worked hard every day
For what was even then meager pay
He worked to put the food on the table
And bought us clothes when he was able

There my dear old mama in Kapalana
Worked hard every day to raise us kids
Ohana love was always there in Kapalana
None better than my dear old mama did

There’s an old sugar mill in Kapalana
That reminds me of my daddy long ago
There’s an old sugar mill in Kapalana
From which memories of island love still flow



Five Kalua Piggies (Larry W. Jones 11/18/2003) (song#2224)

There were five kalua piggies I once knew
Three of them were fat and thin were two
But one kalua piggie acted kinda biggie
He ruled the others with an oink, oink, oink
Oink, oink, oink
Oink, oink, oink
He ruled the others with an oink, oink, oink

Down to the luau by the bay they went one day
Oink, oink, grunt, grunt
Where tradewinds blow
But one kalua piggie acted kinda biggie
He ruled the others with an oink, oink, oink
Oink, oink, oink
Oink, oink, oink
He ruled the others with an oink, oink, oink

There were five kalua piggies I once knew
Four returned but one made kalua luau stew
Now there’s no kalua piggie to act kinda biggie
No ruling the others with an oink, oink, oik
Oink, oink, oink
Oink, oink, oink
No ruling the others with an oink, oink, oink

So, if you think you’re kinda biggie
Remember this story of five kalua piggies
No ruling the others with an oink, oink, oink
Oink, oink, oink
Oink, oink, oink
No ruling the others with an oink, oink, oink
You might end up like a kalua pig I knew



Guiding Star (Larry W. Jones 11/18/2003) (song#2225)

The old navigator had a guiding star
A guiding star over his horizon
When the old navigator saw his guiding star
He knew there was a new island to come

Guiding star, shine on me, guiding star
Guiding star, stay ahead of me, guiding star
There’s a lot of lives depends on me
Give me the wisdom to set dreams free
Guiding star

When I sail, I see that guiding star
That guiding star over my horizon
And so I sail, toward that guiding star
Never looking back til the voyage is done

Guiding star, shine on me, guiding star
Guiding star, stay ahead of me, guiding star
There’s a lot of lives depends on me
Give me the wisdom to set dreams free
Guiding star

One fine day, I’ll see that new island
That new island over my horizon
And when I see that new island
I’ll know my voyage, my voyage is done

Guiding star, shine on me, guiding star
Guiding star, stay ahead of me, guiding star
There’s a lot of lives depends on me
Give me the wisdom to set dreams free
Guiding star



Dear Old Island Daddy (Larry W. Jones 11/18/2003) (song#2226)

He said, island son, I ask of you
See that my last wish does come true
Do this one thing for your dear old daddy
Promise me that you won’t stray
You’ll be the island man while I’m away
And give ohana love here by the bay
The last words I heard my daddy say

And give ohana love was his final word
I tried to not let him see me cry
There was more to say but never heard
I just said Aloha ‘oe goodbye to daddy

They say in time you won’t remember
But time can’t put out ohana love’s ember
Sometimes I smile for dear old daddy
Here on the isle when comes the spring
For it’s then my promise I’m reviewing
And the way he loved to play and sing
His favorite island songs of Gabby Pahinui
Aloha Ka Manini

Well, mama’s gone and the kids are grown now
And I kept my promise to dear old daddy
I can’t be a guide for them any more
Some even up and left the shore
And I did my very best for dear old daddy
Aloha Ka Manini

But it doesn’t seem like much
I don’t think I had the touch
Of how to give ohana love
Like my dear old island daddy



An Island Emblem (Larry W. Jones 11/18/2003) (song#2227)

Please take this island rose
This tender island tuberose
The most fragrant of the flowers
In all the islands fair

And, darling, let it be
An island emblem bright and true
Of dreams now reality
And my true love for you

Please take this happy heart
This heart that loves you so
And let love in it grow
Here in our island home

Please take this happy heart
Or else you’ll never know
That for you alone it grows
For you alone

Please take this island rose
This tender island tuberose
Please take this happy heart
This heart that loves you so

Or else you’ll never know
That for you alone it grows
For you alone



Since You’re Not Around (Larry W. Jones 11/19/2003) (song#2228)

The island sun is sinking
As the day is growing old
But darker days are coming
Even tradewinds are blowing cold
And my dreams come tumbling down
Since you’re not around

I watch the arctic terns flying
Toward more distant tropic skies
And I wish I could fly there too
My dreams and my heart are now a darker blue
It’s not paradise in old Lahaina town
Since you’re not around

Like an island song through swaying trees
You brought your sweet love here to me
Then like a dream on the outbound breeze
You’re not around to comfort me

Through old Lahaina town
We used to stroll at end of day
That island sand is undisturbed now
When the tropic sun is going down
I don’t suppose it matters anyhow
Since you’re not around

The tropic rain falls warmly, dear
On my weary eyes
At least it hides these lonely tears
Here in paradise
My dreams have all come tumbling down
Since you’re not around



Forever In These Dreams (Larry W. Jones 11/19/2003) (song#2229)

Money speaks
But not the language of our dance
And it don’t seek
The love that’s in romance
I’d much rather buy
Time in paradise it seems
With you here by my side
Forever in these dreams

Pineapple sure is sweet
But your sweet love just can’t be beat
And it’s not a waste
To say I’ve placed my heart at your feet
I could even say
Without extremes
That I’ll love you every day
Forever in these dreams

I’m sure tomorrow
You and I will have no sorrow
Cause my one desire
Is to forever light the fire
This fire of love will grow
With love’s gleams
Right here where breezes blow
Forever in these dreams

Money speaks
But not the language of our dance
And it don’t seek
The love that’s in romance
I’d much rather buy
Time in paradise it seems
With you here by my side
Forever in these dreams



Fading Away (Larry W. Jones 11/19/2003) (song#2230)

Our paths were crossed when the islands called
The waves were tossed as we laughed at all
Your smile was inviting, as was your grace
My mind is still reciting your lovely face
Fading away

I sing my song in every crowd
I want to shout your name out loud
And if again you hear the islands call
Then this my love, our love recall
And think of me

Arms entwined, a love that had to die
Boarding whistle whined, Aloha ‘oe goodbye
I wipe the tears from your lovely face
Now mine just fills this empty space
Every day

I sing my song in every crowd
I want to shout your name out loud
And if again you hear the islands call
Then this my love, our love recall
And think of me

I sing my song in every crowd
I want to shout your name out loud
And if again you hear the islands call
Then this my love, our love recall
And think of me



Island Girl I Left Behind (Larry W. Jones 11/19/2003) (song#2231)

 

Leilani, I’m bidding Aloha ‘oe
Said a young island man one day
I’m crossing the ocean, my fortune to find
And the ship is ready to sail today

Far away across the ocean
Soon my fortune I’ll find
Then I’ll return to my heart’s devotion
To Leilani, island girl I left behind

Oh, do we have to be parted
Fair Leilani to him cried
Although you will be broken hearted
The young island man replied
I will return, this you must know
For, Leilani, I love you so

Whether in fortune or failure
My love will always be true
Far away across the ocean
My only love will always be you

Each day on the island shore
Leilani watches the sea of blue
For the day she’ll watch no more
When true hearts will be joined as two

Far away across the ocean
Soon my fortune I’ll find
Then I’ll return to my heart’s devotion
To Leilani, island girl I left behind



Rose Of Majuro (Larry W. Jones 11/19/2003) (song#2232)

 

If I were king of the Marshall islands
With all things bending to my will
And if I roamed through all creation
Ending with fortunes, my pockets filled
The one jewel I would seek the most
I want all who speak to understand
Would be to win the heart of Moana
The rose of Majuro island sand

Her hair is black, cheeks a rosy brown
On her shoulders, queenly head fit for crowns
So lovely is this brown island girl
No prettier one could ‘ere be planned
And my heart is so enchanted
By Moana, rose of Majuro island sand

If I had that lovely rose in Majuro
I would be the king of Marshallese
I would be aglow where tradewinds blow
And love is whispered on the breeze
I would endeavor in every way
To carry out my kingly plan
To gain that prize where palm trees sway
My Moana, rose of Majuro island sand

Oh, I’ll go down and start my roam
Where the sailing ships stand tall
I’ll sail away across the endless foam
To the Marshall islands siren call
My ship is bound for that atoll
Beyond the horizon far and grand
So I’ll bid Aloha ‘oe to you all
To find Moana, rose of Majuro island sand



Strong Tradewinds (Larry W. Jones 11/19/2003) (song#2233)

 

Strong tradewinds that blow lonesome
Oceans running at low tide
Sometimes life is rearranged
Just as is clay
The love we knew is now gone
Like the dew from the lawn
But I’ll remember you until my dying day

Guess I’ll go down to Tahiti
Where I can still hear islands call
I’ll find some work to do there on that shore
And if you have a change of mind
I’ll be there to make you mine
But I guess there’s no use dreaming any more

If I find a brand new paradise
And things were just misunderstood
I could write to you to meet me there
But it’s still the same tropic zone
Tahiti’s just another island home
And tradewinds blow the same down there

Strong tradewinds that blow lonesome
Oceans running at low tide
Sometimes life is rearranged
Just as is clay
The love we knew is now gone
Like the dew from the lawn
But I’ll remember you until my dying day



Windward To The Leeward (Larry W. Jones 11/19/2003) (song#2234)

 

Our love we vowed until eternity
From the windward to the leeward side of life
Our vows were pleged here by the sea
The leading edge of dreams of man and wife

Our love has grown through many memories
And we kept our vows and avoided strife
Island life has suited you and me
From the windward to the leeward side of life

Wind and love are strong on the windward side
Gentle and kind on the leeward side
Our love is steady as the moon and tide
From the windward to the leeward side of life

Our love has grown through many memories
And we kept our vows and avoided strife
Island life has suited you and me
From the windward to the leeward side of life

Our love has grown through many memories
And we kept our vows and avoided strife
Island life has suited you and me
From the windward to the leeward side of life



Island Of Love (Larry W. Jones 11/19/2003) (song#2235)

 

To the island of love, I sail to you
Wiser now than I ever knew
I’ve sailed the world only to learn
I must return to the island of love

Been to some far away places
But I never saw you in all the faces
I guess it was just a young sailor’s pride
That kept me on the outgoing tide
Or my fear that you’d say no

Across the seven seas I’ve sailed
But it was always you I was thinking of
Now I’m tired of storms and gales
I must return to the island of love

Been to some far away places
But I never saw you in all the faces
I guess it was just a young sailor’s pride
That kept me on the outgoing tide
Or my fear that you’d say no

To the island of love, I sail to you
Wiser now than I ever knew
I’ve sailed the world only to learn
I must return to the island of love



Bottom Of My Heart (Larry W. Jones 11/19/2003) (song#2236)

 

From the bottom of my heart
You’re on the top of my mind
Each and every day
From the bottom of my heart
You’re up there to stay
Down by the bay

My dream is you alone
A dream to call my own
My heart’s an open door
From the bottom of my heart
It’s you I adore
Down by the shore

Every time that we’re apart
My heart is feeling down
You always pick me up
In old Lahaina town
I’m on top of paradise when you say
You’ll love me from the bottom of your heart
Every day



From The Ocean (Larry W. Jones 11/19/2003) (song#2237)

From the ocean came the isle
From the isle came the sand
From the sand came a dream of a lover
On the isle was Leilani, looking sublime
Moonbeams of love was above her
We romanced as we danced to Maui chimes
And wedding bells were sounding this time

From the ocean came the isle
From the isle came the sand
From the sand came a dream of a lover

With a song in my heart
I held a dream with a smile
And the moon played its part
With beams of love on the isle

From the ocean came the isle
From the isle came the sand
From the sand came a dream of a lover
On the isle was Leilani, looking sublime
Moonbeams of love was above her
We romanced as we danced to Maui chimes
And wedding bells were sounding this time



Full Moon And Empty Dream (Larry W. Jones 11/20/2003) (song#2238)

Empty dream and full moon
The month of June is meant to share
But it’s an empty scene

I was hoping you’d be here soon
To show me that you care
But I’m caught in between
A full moon and empty dream

Empty dream and full moon
Tonight I’ll wish upon a star
To see where you are

And maybe if you’ll be here soon
I can show I care
And I won’t be caught in between
A full moon and empty dream

Empty dream and full moon
Tonight I’ll wish upon a star
To see where you are

And maybe if you’ll be here soon
I can show I care
And I won’t be caught in between
A full moon and empty dream



Island Of Happiness (Larry W. Jones 11/20/2003) (song#2239)

I found an island where tradewinds blow
Sweet and warm where flowers grow
Shady palm trees where birds of paradise fly at night
Singing songs of love and its delight

Island of happiness, paradise of blue
Skies golden with sun’s rays, made for two
Since I found you, life is sublime
Island of happiness and dreams divine

On this fair island I will always stay
To love you more each and every day
And clouds to only make rainbows above
No tears for us on the island of love

Shady palm trees where birds of paradise fly at night
Singing songs of love and its delight

Island of happiness, paradise of blue
Skies golden with sun’s rays, made for two
Since I found you, life is sublime
Island of happiness and dreams divine



It Would Be Paradise (Larry W. Jones 11/20/2003) (song#2240)

(Yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, oo)
(Yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh)

Yeh, yeh, oh, It would be paradise
(Ba, ba, oh)
If you would be my island girl
Then my heart would realize
Yeh, yeh, why it’s in such a whirl

Oh, whoa, do you really know
(Do you know)
Just how much I love you so
You would surely make me smile
If you would be my girl here on the isle

You set my soul afire
On this isle we could always live
If I could change your name to mine
A thousand dreams I could relive
Yeh, yeh, yeh, oh

Oh, whoa, I want you to love me too
(I love you, I do)
Take these dreams made for two
And we’ll make them all come true

Yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, oh
Yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh
Yeh, yeh, yeh
Oh



As Paradise Goes By (Larry W. Jones 11/20/2003) (song#2241)

I sit alone here by the bay
I sit and watch the dolphins play
Strolling couples I can see
But no one for me
I sit and watch as paradise goes by

I know love is not a fling
I’m a simple man and not a king
The sound I hear is not a band
It must be rain falling on the sand
I sit and watch as paradise goes by

I sit alone here by the bay
I sit and watch the dolphins play
Strolling couples I can see
But no one for me
I sit and watch as paradise goes by

I know love is not for all
Even when the islands call
But even I don’t want to crawl
Through paradise this way

I know love is not a fling
I’m a simple man and not a king
The sound I hear is not a band
It must be rain falling on the sand
I sit and watch as paradise goes by
I watch as paradise goes by



Ocean Liner (Larry W. Jones 11/20/2003) (song#2242)

There’s an ocean liner in the harbor
Pulling the anchor from the bay
There’s an ocean liner in the harbor
Taking away my heart today

The name of the liner is Lurline
She’s part of the Matson line
She’s such a part of the island scene
But she’s taking away what’s mine

Oh, why do you have to go
And leave me here where breezes blow
You were such a part of our island scene
But you won’t be seen here any more

I could blame it on Lurline
But I guess that wouldn’t do
I would give most anything
To just sail away with you

There’s an ocean liner in the harbor
Pulling the anchor from the bay
There’s an ocean liner in the harbor
Taking away my heart today



An Old Ukulele Song (Larry W. Jones 11/20/2003) (song#2243)

 

Ukuleles bring back memories
Melodies ringing in my heart
And I dream of Maui
As I have from the very start
Some day soon when islands call
With their ukulele songs
I’ll find my way back to Maui
That valley isle is where I belong

Maui, my Maui, isle in the blue
An old ukulele song
Keeps Maui on my mind all day long
Maui, my Maui, you’re song is on the breeze
Heard as sweet and strong
And soft as moonlight on palm trees

Other places have called to me
But none so tenderly
And in dreams I’ll make come true
Maui, I’ll find my way back to you

Maui, my Maui, it’s been a long, long time
An old ukulele song
Keeps Maui on my mind



Love And A Cottage (Larry W. Jones 11/20/2003) (song#2244)

 

Love is such an island thing
There’s no fear in paradise
Ukuleles make the mountains ring
For girls with polynesian eyes
Birds of paradise are on the wing
And you don’t have to wonder why

Some people come and some will go
Some will come to stay
I like to be where breezes blow
Through my cottage by the bay
The sun is shining up there too
It’s fun to be in love with you

Listen to the song I sing
And you will understand
The pleasures life can bring
To a simple island man
You don’t have to be a king
Just love and a cottage in the sand

Some people come and some will go
Some will come to stay
I like to be where breezes blow
Through my cottage by the bay
The sun is shining up there too
It’s fun to be in love with you



True Island Love Of Mine (Larry W. Jones 11/20/2003) (song#2245)

Well, if you’re sailin’ on the tradewinds fair
Where the breeze is soft on the horizon line
Say Aloha to a girl who lives there
She was a true island love of mine

Well, if you go through the tropic storms
And find an anchor in a peaceful bay
Please see if she’s wearing all her charms
Tell her I love her still today

See if her long black hair still flows
With the smoothness of sweet wine
See if her long black hair still flows
The way it did when she was mine

I wonder if she thinks of me at all
Sometimes I can hear the tradewinds call
It whispers her name to me at night
And in the daytime clear and bright

So, if you’re sailin’ on the tradewinds fair
Where the breeze is soft on the horizon line
Say Aloha to a girl who lives there
She was a true island love of mine



Give Me My Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 11/20/2003) (song#2246)

 

Give me my Hawaii
The Aloha state where I was born
The state of sweet pineapples
And where flowers the isles adorn
A state where slack key guitars
Play kiho’alu melodies to the stars

Oh, give me my Hawaii
The Aloha state where I was born
I’ve still got old memories
The golden shoreline brings
And of sunrise in the morn
That makes my heart still sing

A state that’s more than state of mind
A place where peace is known
Ohana love is always kind
It flows there in my island home
And when I hear the islands call
Hawaii is the sweetest state of all

A state that’s more than state of mind
A place where peace is known
Ohana love is always kind
It flows there in my island home
And when I hear the islands call
Hawaii is the sweetest state of all



Give Me The Tropic Moon (Larry W. Jones 11/20/2003) (song#2247)

 

Give me the tropic moon
Give me an island girl to swoon
Give me an island in the sea
And the rest is history

Give me a sandy shore
And a moonlight melody
I won’t ask for more
Paradise is enough for me

Give me an outrigger canoe
One just big enough for two
Give me a soft blown breeze
Soon my island girl she’ll be

If anyone doesn’t believe
Let me show what I’ll achieve
Give me the tropic moon
Give me an island girl to swoon
And the rest is history

Give me the tropic moon
Give me an island girl to swoon
And the rest is history



Give Me Your Hand (Larry W. Jones 11/20/2003) (song#2248)

 

Give me your hand
And I’ll give you all my love
Give me your promise
Under all the stars above

What I’ll give is devotion
Deeper than the sea
Not just surface emotion
Give me your hand and you’ll see

Give me the time to play Maui chimes
Music of love has to start
My love will be yours for all times
And so will my heart

What I’ll give in return is my love
More expansive than heavens above
My heart will forever yours be
Give me your hand and you’ll see

What I’ll give in return is my love
More expansive than heavens above
My heart will forever yours be
Give me your hand and you’ll see



Go Find An Island (Larry W. Jones 11/20/2003) (song#2249)

Go find an island
And bury your troubles in the sand
They’ll disappear to stay
Cause you’ll be an island man

Go find an island
And leave your blues to mainland bands
Troubles won’t be back, and
You can start anew again

Go make friends in paradise
Find you a new rainbow
There won’t be tears in your eyes
Where gentle tradewinds blow

It’s the rightful thing to do
Bright and full the moon is too
So, find an island in the sun
You’ll find a dream for everyone

Go find an island
And bury your troubles in the sand
Go find an island
And leave your blues to mainland bands

It’s the rightful thing to do
Bright and full the moon is too
So, find an island in the sun
You’ll find a dream for everyone



Return Return Return (Larry W. Jones 11/21/2003) (song#2250)

 

I wanna return to simple island days
Return to that peaceful little bay
Return through pages of time
Return, return, return

I remember the island sun
Playing hide and seek was lots of fun
We didn’t have to do without
All our problems were all worked out

I wanna return to simple island days
Return to that peaceful little bay
Return through pages of time
Return, return, return

Strolling Ala Moana park hand in hand
Castle building in the island sand
I remember flower leis we made back then
Come on, let’s return to paradise again

I wanna return to simple island days
Return to that peaceful little bay
Return through pages of time
Return, return, return



Goin’ To The Ocean (Larry W. Jones 11/21/2003) (song#2251)

I’m goin’ to the ocean
Gonna swim and never come back
I’m goin’ to the ocean
Gonna swim and never come back
Cause that girl showed no emotion
When she told me it’s time to pack

When she left me on the isle
I cried cause I couldn’t smile
When she left me on the isle
I cried cause I couldn’t smile
I never dreamed
That I would see
See true love that’s gone hostile

Oh no, no, no, no, no, no
Oh no, no, no, no, no, no

Well, if you see that girl tell her
Aloha ‘oe for me
Yeah, if you see that girl tell her
Aloha ‘oe for me
I’m tired of all this dreamin’
Goin’ out to sea



Gonna Sail (Larry W. Jones 11/21/2003) (song#2252)

Gonna sail over to an island
Paint my skies all blue
Gonna sail over to an island
Paint my skies all blue
Plant me some flowers by the shore
Water ’em with tropic island dew

I’m leavin’ this mainland, baby
That old nine to five has got me down
I’m leavin’ this mainland, baby
That old nine to five has got me down
Gonna sail over to an island
Settle down in old Lahaina town

Come along with me baby
Baby, take me by the hand
Come along with me baby
Baby, take me by the hand
You can be my island sweetheart
And I’ll be your island man

Gonna sail over to an island
Paint my, paint my, paint my skies all blue
Sail over to an island
Gonna paint my skies all blue
Plant me some flowers by the shore
Water ’em with tropic island dew



Good Island Woman (Larry W. Jones 11/21/2003) (song#2253)

They’ve never forgotten
The dreams that love has brought them today
The island life he promised
Is in their little cottage by the bay
She never complains if little things aren’t done
Cause there’s too many good things under the sun

She’s a good island woman
In love with her good island man
She loves him because
He always seems to understand
In the moonlight they stroll hand in hand
This good island woman
In love with her good island man

They both like the soft lights
Waikiki in the moonlight
And good old island friends
And when the waltz is over
They’ll stroll back home again
This good island woman
In love with her good island man

She’s a good island woman
In love with her good island man
She loves him because
He always seems to understand
In the moonlight they stroll hand in hand
This good island woman
In love with her good island man



Waiting Just For You (Larry W. Jones 11/25/2003) (song#2254)

Well, it used to seem
That love was just a dream
And every love I tried
Was tied to a heart that cried

But now I can see
That your love is really good for me
My heart has been waiting just for you
Relating to a dream that just came true

I must say you really have a way
Of making my heart glad
That part was really sad
I’ve waited for so long
To hear this island song

But now I can see
That your love is really good for me
My heart has been waiting just for you
Relating to a dream that just came true

I must say you really have a way
Of making my heart glad
That part was really sad
I’ve waited for so long
To hear this island song



Aloha Kakahiaka (Larry W. Jones 11/25/2003) (song#2255)

Aloha kakahiaka, ku’u ipo to you
Good morning my love
We’ve danced under stars above in Hawaii blue
Aloha kakahiaka, my love

Aloha kakahiaka, kakahiaka to you
This late night date is really great, it’s true
We’ve romanced under stars in Hawaii blue
Aloha kakahiaka, ku’u ipo to you

That island band sounded grand til three AM
You in my arms with your charms was a gem
Now I must state it’s too late to kiss goodnight
And the milkman’s on his way before the light

Aloha kakahiaka, ku’u ipo to you
Good morning my love
The sunshine on the isle
Will soon be smiling through above

Aloha kakahiaka, ku’u ipo to you
Good morning my love
The sunshine on the isle
Will soon be smiling through above
Aloha kakahiaka, ku’u ipo to you



Good Night My Love (Larry W. Jones 11/25/2003) (song#2256)

Good night, my love
Until the sun meets tomorrow
Good night, my love
Tonight was fun, never sorrow

There’s no tears in our parting
Only cheers until the dawn
This dream of ours is only starting
For a new love has been born

So, good night, my love
Though I always want you by my side
Good night, my love
And may true love our hearts ‘ere guide

And as sweet dreams surround you
It will seem my arms are around you
So, good night, my love
Sleep tight, my love, my love

There’s no tears in our parting
Only cheers until the dawn
This dream of ours is only starting
For a new love has been born

And as sweet dreams surround you
It will seem my arms are around you
So, good night, my love
Sleep tight, my love, my love



Long Tall Texan Blues (Larry W. Jones 11/25/2003) (song#2257)

All my friends have gone away
To some place where palm trees sway
They say they’ll end up nice ‘n brown
Everybody’s gone to old Lahaina town

Some went by cruise liner
Some caught an overnighter
I’m caught here feelin’ pretty minor
I’ve got the long tall Texan mainland blues

Some get to choose, some have to lose
This long tall Texan’s got the mainland blues
This long tall Texan’s got the mainland blues

I can hear the islands calling me
Been hearing them since I was three
I fooled around and never went
Now I’m broke without a cent

Some get to choose, some have to lose
This long tall Texan’s got the mainland blues
This long tall Texan’s got the mainland blues

Some get to choose, some have to lose
This long tall Texan’s got the mainland blues
This long tall Texan’s got the mainland blues



Island Sun And Tuberoses (Larry W. Jones 11/26/2003) (song#2258)

Tra la la la la-la la
Tra la la la la-la-la

The emptiness that my heart felt
Has gone forever
Like ice, the sadness now will melt
To return, no never

Tra la la la la-la la
Tra la la la la-la-la

From now on what I suppose is
Days of island sun and tuberoses
Every day is an island song
Every time we stroll along
It’s island sun and tuberoses

The emptiness that my heart felt
Has gone forever
Like ice, the sadness now will melt
To return, no never

Tra la la la la-la la
Tra la la la la-la-la

From now on what I suppose is
Days of island sun and tuberoses
Every day is an island song
Every time we stroll along
It’s island sun and tuberoses



Aloha To Love (Larry W. Jones 11/26/2003) (song#2259)

At last I get to say Aloha to love
It must have fallen from the sky
Cause most of the time it just strolled on by
All I knew was I was blue without it
At last I get to say Aloha to love

I had it in my mind to live alone
Until that fateful day
You were the kind I’ve never known
An island girl where palm trees sway
At last I get to say Aloha to love

There was only sorrow in this heart of mine
No tomorrow of sweet memories
Then you came from paradise divine
It must have been a sign
To say Aloha to love here by the sea

Who knows what the future holds
We’ll just see what it unfolds
But there’s one thing in my song
That will be there all along
Aloha to love, Aloha to love



On My Way To Waikiki (Larry W. Jones 11/26/2003) (song#2260)

I’ve got a date with an island angel
I’ll be meeting her at Waikiki
I’ve got a date with an island angel
To my heart I’ve given her the key

No matter what the tide brings in
With my island angel, love I’ll win
So, I’m on my way to Waikiki
My island angel’s waiting there for me

Soon we’ll hear Maui chimes ring out
That will be the time to stroll about
She’s an island angel, there’s no doubt
I’m on my way to Waikiki

I’ve been waiting for a long time
For an angel to stroll with me
Love’s on a roll and it’s the right time
To take a stroll in old Waikiki

Soon we’ll hear Maui chimes ring out
That will be the time to stroll about
She’s an island angel, there’s no doubt
I’m on my way to Waikiki



Money Honey (Larry W. Jones 11/26/2003) (song#2261)

Well, you say you won’t marry Larry
I think you’re just being contrary
I don’t have the money for islands airy
Just a love that is very true

Ku’u ipo, darling, I love you
But every time you make me blue
Cause you say I gotta have money, honey
Or you won’t marry Larry true

Well, you say I gotta have money, honey
You’ve been this way from the very start
I love you and it ain’t funny
That you’ve broken Larry’s heart

Every time we start to croon
Underneath that old tropic moon
I’m wary of all the dreams you bury
You say I gotta have money, honey soon

Ku’u ipo, darling, I love you
But every time you make me blue
Cause you say I gotta have money, honey
Or you won’t marry Larry true
Man, I need some money soon



Fish And Poi And Spam (Larry W. Jones 11/26/2003) (song#2262)

Oh, how I love that fish and poi and spam
I love that fish and poi and spam
True island boy I am

I love that fish and poi and spam so fair
I just love to eat them anywhere
I love to eat them at the luau
I love that, love that, love that island chow

I love to eat them til I strain
For every meal they are the main
I would eat them on the shore
And then I’d go back for more

I eat fish and poi and spam in my house
My spouse says I am such a louse
I love that fish and poi and spam
True island boy I am

Fish and poi and spam
Fish and poi and spam
True island boy I am



Polynesian Eyes (Larry W. Jones 11/26/2003) (song#2263)

Polynesian eyes in polynesian skies
Eyes that promise paradise
Bring to me such yearning, a heart for learning
When I dream of holding you
Love from of old that now is new
A song to sing with our heart strings
My whole life is turning over too

Your warm and knowing polynesian eyes
Where love is growing as the moonbeams rise
Therein lies my happiness
They will ever haunt me, taunt me I confess
The way you flaunt them is a sweet caress
I will ever want them in Hawaii blue
Polynesian eyes please make my paradise come true

When I dream of holding you
Love from of old that now is new
A song to sing with our heart strings
My whole life is turning over too

Your warm and knowing polynesian eyes
Where love is growing as the moonbeams rise
Therein lies my happiness
They will ever haunt me, taunt me I confess
The way you flaunt them is a sweet caress
I will ever want them in Hawaii blue
Polynesian eyes please make my paradise come true



Golden Sand (Larry W. Jones 11/26/2003) (song#2264)

Golden sand around our cottage
Palm trees blowing in the wind
Yes, it’s island time, yours and mine
And we’re full of cheer this time of year
Cause island time is here

Carefree strollin’ couples
Under palms that sway so supple
Yes, it’s island time, yours and mine
While birds of paradise sing their songs
It’s an isle of love the summer long

Back on the mainland we were waiting
My love and I just anticipating
Golden sand that was overdue
Now we’re here in Hawaii blue
So, the weathercaster better master
The sun, moon and stars
To keep paradise where we are, for

Golden sand around our cottage
Palm trees blowing in the wind
Yes, it’s island time, yours and mine
And we’re full of cheer this time of year
Cause island time is here

While birds of paradise sing their songs
It’s an isle of love the summer long
An isle of love the summer long



An Island Love Song (Larry W. Jones 11/26/2003) (song#2265)

The moon is out tonight
The stars are shining bright
The time is right for a love song
Somebody sing an island love song

Somebody tell the island band
Somebody sing an island love song
While I stroll along
Hand in hand with my baby
Hand in hand with my baby

Don’t make it a melancholy melody
It’s a happy time for her and me
A cheerful island song, play it long
Cause we’re in paradise where we belong

Somebody tell the island band
Somebody sing an island love song
While I stroll along
Hand in hand with my baby
Hand in hand with my baby

Don’t make it a melancholy melody
It’s a happy time for her and me
A cheerful island song, play it long
Cause we’re in paradise where we belong

Somebody tell the island band
Somebody sing an island love song
While I stroll along
Hand in hand with my baby
Hand in hand with my baby



Not So Far Away (Larry W. Jones 11/26/2003) (song#2266)

I needed to find a true love
One like yours is all I need to say
Love in your eyes is no disguise
Paradise is not so far away

I longed for lips like yours to kiss
I never knew a sweeter island miss
No other love swayed me this way
Paradise is not so far away

Holding you seems just like heaven
I dreamed of this paradise so much
Nowhere else in the oceans, all seven
Is there an island love with your touch

So, kiss me with your lips divine
And love me with heart, soul and mind
And if your heart with mine will stay
Paradise is not so far away

Paradise is not so far away



Beginning September (Larry W. Jones 11/26/2003) (song#2267)

Time on this island with you
Has been so fine I can’t believe it’s true
And now the time has come to sigh
For tomorrow morn we’ll say Aloha ‘oe goodbye

When you’re on that mainland all alone
Remember me and all the dreams we own
Don’t let the winter chill our love ‘ere fade
Remember all these future vows we made

My dreams will only be of you
Beginning september
In dreams I’ll still be holding you
So, darling remember
How much we fell in love
Let’s keep love’s ember warm

This world is big and the sun has set
On our time together, and yet
It’s amazing how we ever met at all
Please remember and never forget
That my love for you will never set
As long as we hear the islands call

Time on this island with you
Has been so fine I can’t believe it’s true
And now the time has come to sigh
For tomorrow morn we’ll say Aloha ‘oe goodbye

This world is big and the sun has set
On our time together, and yet
It’s amazing how we ever met at all
Please remember and never forget
That my love for you will never set
As long as we hear the islands call



Away Yo Ho (Larry W. Jones 11/26/2003) (song#2268)

Sail away with me, my love
To a tropic zone to be my own

Smiling is the isle, shining is the sea
Warm is the island weather
My love, sail away with me
Just the two of us together

Away, yo ho, my love
Away, yo ho, my love so fair
Come sail away with me, my love
And be my love so rare

All day long out on the sea
Then on the shore in the evening
Strolling in the sand, you and me
Hand in hand with the singing

Away, yo ho, my love
Away, yo ho, my love so fair
Come sail away with me, my love
And be my love so rare

Laughing out loud, never a cloud
Where tradewinds are always breezy
Could more even be allowed
Falling in love with you is easy

Away, yo ho, my love
Away, yo ho, my love so fair
Come sail away with me, my love
And be my love so rare



An Island Melody (Larry W. Jones 11/26/2003) (song#2269)

I always knew we’d be together, my love
I always knew we were of a feather, my love
An island song sung in harmony
When you came singing by the silver sea

Melody, two part harmony
You and me in the tropic sun
Melody, your love sets my heart free
Free but I’ll never want to run
Now that it sings an island melody

There’s no way to stroll around it
No control now that we’ve found it
Melody
Two part harmony
Our love is an island symphony

Melody, two part harmony
You and me in the tropic sun
Melody, your love sets my heart free
Free but I’ll never want to run
Now that it sings an island melody

The music’s sweet and tender
Soft tradewinds whisper in my ear
Songs of love that soon will render
A melody when you are near
And this is what I hear

Melody, two part harmony
You and me in the tropic sun
Melody, your love sets my heart free
Free but I’ll never want to run
Now that it sings an island melody



I Ask You (Larry W. Jones 11/27/2003) (song#2270)

Have you ever been so happy
Have your dreams all come true
Have you ever fell in love
As deep as I have with you

Have you seen nights so starry
In Hawaii blue
I wouldn’t change a thing, dear
Except for a ring for you

All the love that you’re giving
I treasure here in my heart
Island life is worth living
When love is such a work of art

It’s all so new, this love so true
No wonder I ask you
Have you ever been so happy
Have your dreams all come true

It’s all so new, this love so true
No wonder I ask you
Have you ever been so happy
Have your dreams all come true



Isle Of Gold (Larry W. Jones 11/27/2003) (song#2271)

I chase a dream, try any scheme
I’m just a sailor for an isle of gold
In these oceans in the drifting stream
That keeps me sailing for an isle of gold
Someone to hold
Keeps me sailing for an isle of gold
It’s getting cold

I’ve sailed through thunder, been down under
I’ve sailed the oceans for an isle of gold
Some places seemed fine, just took up time
That I needed for an isle of gold
Someone to hold
Keeps me sailing for an isle of gold
It’s getting cold

Keeps me sailing for an isle of gold
Someone keeps me sailing for an isle of gold
Someone to hold
I’m just a sailor for an isle of gold
It’s getting cold



Heart Of The Ocean (Larry W. Jones 11/27/2003) (song#2272)

I’ve been lookin’ high
And I’ve been lookin’ low
For a place where tradewinds blow
In the heart of the ocean

Some day I’ll go, some day I’ll go
Leave behind everyone I know
I’ve been lookin’ for an island
In the heart of the ocean

Heart of the ocean
Where kindly tradewinds blow
Heart of the ocean
Smell the flowers as they grow

Don’t want no phone, just waves and foam
I want an isle to call my own
A tropic zone
In the heart of the ocean

Some day I’ll go, some day I’ll go
Leave behind everyone I know
I’ve been lookin’ for an island
In the heart of the ocean

Heart of the ocean
Where kindly tradewinds blow
Heart of the ocean
Smell the flowers as they grow



Moonlight Melody (Larry W. Jones 11/27/2003) (song#2273)

I stand on your shore
And the song that I sing is of starlight
The fragrant lei that you wore
Beckons me from afar tonight
Tradewinds are sighing a moonlight melody

How the stars twinkle bright
And their light now brings the dreaming
My love, your eyes are those that might
Set my heart to scheming
The night brings a moonlight melody

Let us stroll down by the bay
Through this isle of dreams
You and I under a velvet sky
To see what this night means

Look how the moon is hung
Over a shining silver sea
The night is still so young
And darling, so are we

As we stroll together on this shore
The night and I agree
My heart could never ask for more
With love’s moonlight melody



Tradewinds Brought You (Larry W. Jones 11/27/2003) (song#2274)

HER: Night time always brought me dreams
When I would go to sleep
Then you appeared upon the scene
Your face divine, a dream to keep
You also brought your manly charms
And I could feel them in my arms
Back on the mainland world
I was just an empty, lonely girl
But then, your name I heard whispered
Tradewinds must have brought you, it’s true
(Yes it’s true)
I know, (yes, it’s true)

HIM: It’s strange how my empty arms
Felt like they had a heavy load
But then on the tradewind air
I heard your name whispered there
Like a precious gift that was bestowed
Now that you’re in these arms of mine
They feel as light as Maui chimes
Yes, I was a lonely island man
Strolling alone in island sand
But then, your name I heard whispered
Tradewinds must have brought you, it’s true
(Yes it’s true)

BOTH: Our dreams have now come true
It seems the sky is more than blue
Hand in hand I find
Love and peace of the island kind
Because your name I heard whispered
Tradewinds must have brought you, it’s true
(Yes it’s true)



Tradewinds Stood Still (Larry W. Jones 11/27/2003) (song#2275)

As the night fades away
A new dawn arrives in paradise
Tears have gone and music plays
This band of gold has precious ties

In your hand you hold the keys
To my heart and all of me
For all our days, love will stay
In our little cottage by the bay

One distant dream came to life
For my empty heart to fill
Your name was whispered as my wife
When tradewinds stood still

In your hand you hold the keys
To my heart and all of me
For all our days, love will stay
In our little cottage by the bay

As the night fades away
I know dreams have been fulfilled
I’ll remember paradise this day
When tradewinds stood still



Aloha! (Larry W. Jones 11/27/2003) (song#2276)

In a tropic zone with you in my mind
In a dream alone, I count your charms
A million times
Sometimes I see you strolling by the shore
Aloha! Is it a dream you’re looking for

Paradise I see there in your eyes
I also see it in your smile
You’re the dream for which I’d die
To hold you in my arms for awhile
I never know just what to say
But I’m through with being blue
So I’ll just say Aloha, I love you

I’d love to see the moonlight in your hair
While I tell you a million times again
Just how much I care
So, here where soft tradewinds blow
Aloha! I love you, don’t you know

I have wished upon a lot of stars
But I still don’t know who you are
Or what you do
Are you just my dream only
Or do you have a love that’s true
Tell me how I won’t be lonely
So I can give my heart to you
Can I just say Aloha, I love you

Aloha! Is it a dream you’re looking for

Paradise I see there in your eyes
I also see it in your smile
You’re the dream for which I’d die
To hold you in my arms for awhile
I never know just what to say
But I’m through with being blue
So I’ll just say Aloha, I love you



Gold (Larry W. Jones 11/27/2003) (song#2277)

Gold
There’s gold in Hawaii blue
I’m sold on your sweet love for me

Gold
There’s gold in Hawaii blue
A rainbow shines upon the sea
Ever since you gave your heart to me
Yes, it’s true
There’s gold in Hawaii blue

Gold
There’s gold in Hawaii blue
When we strolled down by the sea
I gave a band of gold for all to see
Yes, it’s true
Dreams now unfold for you and me

Gold
There’s gold in Hawaii blue
A golden dream has come true
A golden dream has come true



Aloha Maui Hello (Larry W. Jones 11/27/2003) (song#2278)

Well, I’ve been east and I’ve seen the west
I’ve been north and south
Now I know where life is best
Aloha Maui, hello

Well, I had some fun while on the run
But now my roaming is all done
Say Aloha to an island son
Aloha Maui, hello

Hula skirts, aloha shirts
Ukulele tunes and tropic moons

Oh, steamer captain
Show that you care
I don’t have all the fare, but
Oh, steamer captain

Take my mainland shoes, take my blues
Take my headaches and my heartaches
Let’s set sail until I yell
Aloha Maui, hello

Hula skirts, aloha shirts
Ukulele tunes and tropic moons

Take my mainland shoes, take my blues
Take my headaches and my heartaches
Let’s set sail until I yell
Aloha Maui, hello
Aloha Maui, hello



Sweetest Of Love Songs (Larry W. Jones 11/27/2003) (song#2279)

Place this lei there in your hair
Try not to let the pedals fall
They smell so fragrant in the air
When love like ours has come to call

Come and stroll here by my side
Neath the beams of loving light
Let me know that you are mine
Here on the isle of sweet delight

Our love is like a brand new song
Brand new wife and island man
Love will guide us all along
That, you and I both understand

I’m so glad you came along
You made my future turn out bright
You make the sweetest of love songs
Here on the isle of sweet delight

You make the sweetest of love songs
Here on the isle of sweet delight
You make the sweetest of love songs
Here on the isle of sweet delight



Dreamgirl (Larry W. Jones 11/27/2003) (song#2280)

She’s my dreamgirl, my island lass
She’s my dreamgirl, hula skirt of grass
She’s my dreamgirl with her polynesian eyes

She’s my dreamgirl, my dreamy island star
She’s my dreamgirl, soft music of guitars
She’s my dreamgirl with her polynesian eyes

I have to tell you
I dream about my dreamgirl every day, it’s true
And it seems the way that she does her hula sway
My dreamgirl dreams about me too

She’s my dreamgirl, when she does her hula sway
She’s my dreamgirl, all day I’m in paradise
She’s my dreamgirl with her polynesian eyes

She’s my dreamgirl, when she does her hula sway
She’s my dreamgirl, all day I’m in paradise
She’s my dreamgirl with her polynesian eyes



Luau By The Bay (Larry W. Jones 11/27/2003) (song#2281)

Here we sit in island sand
Drink a drink to an island man
Here is why the day is fine
I’m in love with lips of wine
Wait until you see her hula sway
Take me to a luau by the bay

My girl is coming here today
I know my love is here to stay
Her letters have a fragrant scent
They better, cause they’re heaven sent
Wait until you see her hula sway
Take me to a luau by the bay

The purpose of an island
Is to find an island love
The moon upon the sea will softly shine
Soon love will come from up above
And a true island love will be mine

Look now quickly, if you can
Look her way just once again
Here she comes and I’m not lonely
Sorry friends but she’s mine only
Wait until you see her hula sway
Take me to a luau by the bay

She’s gone from sight and love is gone
Just like that are dreams withdrawn
She said that she had met another
So, I sent my flowers to her mother
I will surely miss her hula sway
Take me to another luau by the bay
Take me to another luau by the bay



Luau’s What’s Cookin’ (Larry W. Jones 11/28/2003) (song#2282)

Aloha, good lookin’, the luau’s what’s cookin’
How’s about bookin’ romance for you and me
Aloha, wahini, you could be my queenie
We could start a true love by the sea

Got an old surf board and some time to kill
Forget about your yacht and the stack of bills
The moon is up and so’s the tall palm trees
If you wanna have fun, stroll along with me

Aloha, good lookin’, the luau’s what’s cookin’
How’s about bookin’ romance for you and me

Got an old surf board and some time to kill
Forget about your yacht and the stack of bills
The moon is up and so’s the tall palm trees
If you wanna have fun, stroll along with me

Aloha, good lookin’, the luau’s what’s cookin’
How’s about bookin’ romance for you and me



Tropic Wind (Larry W. Jones 11/28/2003) (song#2283)

Well, east Texas has a lot of piney woods
But I’d take the shiny ocean if I could
When I get lonely and I need a friend
The only thing I need is a tropic wind

I became a cowboy when I got here
Ridin’ the range with the longhorn steers
It may soung strange much to my chagrin
But the only thing I need is a tropic wind

It’s hard to know whether dreams are real
But it sure does seem that I can feel
Tradewinds calling back to where I’ve been
The only thing I need is a tropic wind

It’s hard to know whether dreams are real
But it sure does seem that I can feel
Tradewinds calling back to where I’ve been
The only thing I need is a tropic wind

The only thing I need is a tropic wind



Cuttin’ That Cane (Larry W. Jones 11/28/2003) (song#2284)

We didn’t know it was paradise
Even though the island had clear blue skies
But island life wasn’t all that bad
We were cuttin’ that cane in the sun and rain
And ohana island love was all we had

Well, life goes on and the time flew by
But daddy still had a twinkle in his eye
And ohana love was coming from mama’s hands
They raised us right as best they could
Bought us all a bike when times were good
They said it was love in red island sand

We were cuttin’ that cane in the sun and rain
And ohana island love was all we had
We knew that paradise could be a pain
But island life wasn’t all that bad
We were cuttin’ that cane in the sun and rain
Alongside our mama and our island dad

Sometimes we’d go to Honolulu town
Mama dressed us up in our hand me downs
Now I know her love wasn’t all in vain
Our arms were strong and our backs were brown
It was the same old song til the sun went down
We were cuttin’ that cane in the sun and rain

We didn’t know it was paradise
Even though the island had clear blue skies
But island life wasn’t all that bad
We were cuttin’ that cane in the sun and rain
And ohana island love was all we had



On A Breezy Shore (Larry W. Jones 11/28/2003) (song#2285)

There on a breezy shore
I feel my heart stand still once more
I hear the tradewind whisper your name
And as it fades into the blue
A flame inside, it became
And I go again in search of you

The moonlight shadows seem to call your name
Then fades away without a trace
Oh, when will I see your lovely face
Why do you play this heartless game
And lead my heart in endless chase

Until eternity I’ll play the game, chase the flame
Because forever I’ll hear the tradewinds whisper your name

There on a breezy shore
I feel my heart stand still once more
I hear the tradewind whisper your name
And as it fades into the blue
A flame inside, it became
And I go again in search of you

Until eternity I’ll play the game, chase the flame
Because forever I’ll hear the tradewinds whisper your name



Castles In The Sand (Larry W. Jones 11/28/2003) (song#2286)

You must stroll a little slower
When you stroll through life with her
And take the time to render
Love that’s warm and tender
You must stand up straight and tall
To catch her world in case she falls
Only then will you understand
Love can’t build castles in the sand

You must live every moment
For the love she gives to you
You’re her one in a million
Just be her island man that’s true
You must stand up straight and tall
To catch her world in case she falls
Only then will you understand
Love can’t build castles in the sand

You must hold her a little closer
And treat her as a garden does a rose
Love is such a great composer
As music where the tradewind blows
You must stand up straight and tall
To catch her world in case she falls
Only then will you understand
Love can’t build castles in the sand



Hawaiian Woodie Ford (Larry W. Jones 11/28/2003) (song#2287)

I’ve got a good Hawaiian woodie
A nineteen forty seven Ford
Hauls my surfboards like she should
She’s all I can afford
My nineteen forty seven woodie Ford

My good Hawaiian woodie
She takes me up and over the pali
Winds me down the roads so jolly
My good Hawaiian woodie Ford
She used to be so pretty
Now the chrome is gone, a pity
But she’s still my woodie kitty
My good Hawaiian woodie Ford

Radio blastin’ Island Rhythm 98.5
Coat hangar antenna’s workin’ fine
Island girls all stand in line
To ride in my nineteen forty seven
Nineteen forty seven Ford with the woodie sides

My good Hawaiian woodie
She takes me up and over the pali
Winds me down the roads so jolly
My good Hawaiian woodie Ford
She used to be so pretty
Now the chrome is gone, a pity
But she’s still my woodie kitty
My good Hawaiian woodie Ford

Some folks don’t like her color scheme
Rust and holes and faded yellow-green
But she’s paid for and gets me home
It’s no big deal, the missing chrome
I wash her off in the tidal foam

My good Hawaiian woodie
She takes me up and over the pali
Winds me down the roads so jolly
My good Hawaiian woodie Ford
She used to be so pretty
Now the chrome is gone, a pity
But she’s still my woodie kitty
My good Hawaiian woodie Ford



Raging Storm (Larry W. Jones 11/28/2003) (song#2288)

I sailed from home hopeing I could find my way
Through the ocean foam to your island’s peaceful bay
I brought my charts to help me find the way
To find the way into your heart and home

Steering my way through rain in sheets
Toward old Lahaina town where I must go
Wondering if you and I will ever meet
Hopeing I don’t drown because I love you so

Islands in the stream, old Lahaina town
Maui island dream, whenever you’re around
Raging storm abeam, will I ever be free
To see this dream fulfilled for you and me

The rain is beating through the foc’sle hatch
The wheel and I are in a wrestling match
We used to be so warm in our island home
A storm like this chills me to my bones

Got to find my way to your peaceful shore
Darling, I’m missing you more and more
The stars at night are set in velvet blue
And in the pale moon light I dream of you

Islands in the stream, old Lahaina town
Maui island dream, whenever you’re around
Raging storm abeam, will I ever be free
To see my dream fulfilled for you and me



Home Is Where The Foam Is (Larry W. Jones 11/28/2003) (song#2289)

Home is where the foam is
Way out in the sea
And my heart is like an artist
Drawing love for you and me
I don’t need a mansion
Just a cottage by the shore
Home is where the foam is
And it’s you I’m headed for

I know I’ve been gone too long
I feel like a rolling stone
I’ve been dreaming of you so much
I can almost feel your touch

Home is where the foam is
Way out in the sea
And my heart is like an artist
Drawing love for you and me

I know I’ve been gone too long
I feel like a rolling stone
I’ve been dreaming of you so much
I can almost feel your touch

Home is where the foam is
Way out in the sea
And my heart is like an artist
Drawing love for you and me



Home Sweet Home Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 11/28/2003) (song#2290)

Way out in the ocean, toward the setting sun
Where the tradewinds blow steady and free
A chain of lovely isles my heart has won
Those fair islands are always calling me
If you sail the peaceful pacific sea
The dreams of your heart to fulfill
I’m sure that you and I’ll agree
They’re the isles of paradise still

Home sweet home Hawaii
Home means the ocean
Island scene of deep emotion
Down by the crystal bays, up mountains high
Out where the tropic sun always shines
These are the isles that I love best
Fairest of them all
Where the sun is setting in the west
I can hear Hawaii call

These are the isles that I love best
Fairest of them all
Where the sun is setting in the west
I can hear Hawaii call



Maui Wowie Island Clown (Larry W. Jones 11/28/2003) (song#2291)

Well, I’m an island man, but at love I’m a flop
I wanna give the hula girls a whirl
To a ukulele flat top box
But when the sun goes down in old Lahaina town
They’re singin’ here comes the Maui wowie island clown

Now I’m livin’ blue where the tradewinds blow
I wish I knew how to make love grow
But when the moon comes up in old Lahaina town
Soon my cup will be the Maui wowie island clown

Cause I’m an island man, but at love I’m a flop
I wanna give the hula girls a whirl
To a ukulele flat top box
But when the sun goes down in old Lahaina town
They’re singin’ here comes the Maui wowie island clown

I saw a pretty hula girl who was lookin’ so fine
But she didn’t even wanna give me the time
The ukulele boys were makin’ island sounds
But I was eatin’ fish and makin’ poi go down

Cause I’m an island man, but at love I’m a flop
I wanna give the hula girls a whirl
To a ukulele flat top box
But when the sun goes down in old Lahaina town
They’re singin’ here comes the Maui wowie island clown
Here comes the Maui wowie island clown



Gabby Pahinui’s Gone (Larry W. Jones 11/28/2003) (song#2292)

Hang it up, island boys
The king of kiho’alu has gone away
Slack key guitar has lost it’s star
Where palm trees sway
Gabby’s gone
Gabby Pahinui’s gone

Hang it up, island boys
Throw your koa guitars in the bay
The king of kiho’alu has gone away
Come what may
Gabby’s gone
Gabby Pahinui’s gone

Now all that’s left are memories
Aloha Ka Manini, Pu’u Anahulu
Ipo Lei Manu by the sea
The curtain went a-falling
And all Hawaii went a-calling
Gabby’s gone
Gabby Pahinui’s gone

Hang it up, island boys
The king of kiho’alu has gone away
Like stars that fall and heros all
His music is yesterday
Gabby’s gone
But we have his island songs
Gabby Pahinui’s gone away



Smooth Island Rum (Larry W. Jones 11/28/2003) (song#2293)

When the winter skies advise
That the cold is here to stay
And I realize that paradise
Is two thousand miles away
In the winter chill I love you still
Just like the sun
You’re my sweet sugar cane, honey
My smooth island rum

When the ice cicles decorate the trees
In winter time
I dedicate a lot of time
To making sure you’re mine
In the winter time you’re just as fine
And just as fun
You’re my sweet sugar cane, honey
My smooth island rum

When gloves and hats and frozen door mats
Are everywhere
Our fireside chats in our little flat
Shows that you care
When the north wind blows, it’s love that flows
And you become
My sweet sugar cane, honey
My smooth island rum



How Are Things (Larry W. Jones 11/28/2003) (song#2294)

I hear a bird of paradise, lonely bird
Even he doesn’t bring me a cheerful word
I feel a tradewind, a warm summer breeze
But the word it whispers makes me freeze
So, tell me please

How are things in paradise
Are there songs of love still in the air
And do they sing of polynesian eyes
On Maui, Oahu and Kauai over there

How are things in paradise
Do Manoa rainbows still shine upon the bay
Does that island girl with polynesian eyes
Still smile at you and then just stroll away

Are things still warm and dreamy there
And do dreams still come true today
And please ask that island girl, but beware
How are things in paradise this fine and lonely day

Are things still warm and dreamy there
And do dreams still come true today
And please ask that island girl, but beware
How are things in paradise this fine and lonely day



Soft Music (Larry W. Jones 11/29/2003) (song#2295)

How long will palm trees keep swaying
How long will soft music last
How deep are the oceans
And love’s devotions
So vast

And why would you rearrange
Things that don’t need to change
Young love at the start
Will still do its part
Whenever she calls your name

In time you will discover
That your wife is your best friend
As well as your lover
It doesn’t have to end
At all

Just as palm trees keep swaying
Just as deep as the seas so vast
Be sure your devotion
Is as deep as the ocean
And soft music will forever last



Beyond The Moon (Larry W. Jones 11/29/2003) (song#2296)

I hear island music
Faint but in fine tune
It sounds like from heaven
Beyond the moon
But no moon do I see
Since you went away
How I dream endlessly
For return of your love here to stay

I hear island music
Faint and so far
It sounds like from heaven
Too close to the stars
If only the twilight could bring
Your love to me soon
Until it does, my dreams will be
Beyond the moon

I hear island music
Faint and so far
It sounds like from heaven
Too close to the stars
If only the twilight could bring
Your love to me soon
Until it does, my dreams will be
Beyond the moon



How Beautiful You Are (Larry W. Jones 11/29/2003) (song#2297)

I stroll down the beach at night
Toward those Waikiki lights
Sit alone at Duke’s Canoe Club bar
And before too very long
They play this wistful island song
How beautiful you are

It’s a gentle island sound
Played only when the sun goes down
For anyone who’s wishing on a star
Here where the tradewinds blow
Aloha really means hello
And how beautiful you are

I always struggle with right words to say
And shy personalities have no appeal
So, the only thing that works for me
Are these words upon which you’ll agree
That comes from the way that my heart feels

Opportunities disappear so fast
That’s why I’m always last
I’ve seen it come and go at Duke’s Canoe Club bar
Well, the music has begun
I guess I’ll give it one more run
And say how beautiful you are

Well, the music has begun
I guess I’ll give it one more run
And say how beautiful you are



Into My World (Larry W. Jones 11/29/2003) (song#2298)

I had nothing but sorrow
Til you made dreams come true
There was no hope for tomorrow
Til into my world entered you

There was nothing that mattered
My heart was broken in two
Words of love were just chatter
Til into my world entered you

Every Monday used to be blue
Friday, Saturday, Sunday too
I was an island unto myself
Til you picked me off the shelf

Our paths merged instead of parted
If my memory is true
And I’m no more broken hearted
Since into my world entered you

I have no more yearning
To get away from it all
Cause for you my love’s burning
Since you answered love’s call

Our paths merged instead of parted
If my memory is true
And I’m no more broken hearted
Since into my world entered you



Ku’u Leilani (Larry W. Jones 11/29/2003) (song#2299)

Where have you gone, ku’u Leilani
Blossom of the dawn, ku’u Leilani
Makemake nui loa, makemake nui loa

I’m still here ku’u Leilani
On this isle of, paradise
Ku’u Leilani, ku’u Leilani

Will you return to Shangri-la
On this isle of, paradise

Please return, I beg of you, ku’u Leilani
And fill my nights with love, ku’u Leilani

Do you hear the words of my desire
Makemake nui loa, makemake nui loa
I beckon you, ku’u Leilani
Return to this isle of, paradise

Oh, my love, please hear my plea
Here on this isle of, paradise
Ku’u Leilani, ku’u Leilani

Oh, my love, please hear my plea
Here on this isle of, paradise



Twenty Three Hundred (Larry W. Jones 11/29/2003) (song#2300)

 

Twenty three hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Twenty three hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Twenty three 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
Twenty three 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
Twenty three hundred fathoms down lives cousin Davy Jones
Says I’ve got more songs to write about these tropic zones

Twenty three hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Twenty three hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Twenty three hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun
Twenty three hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun



Since I Found My Baby (Larry W. Jones 11/29/2003) (song#2301)

 

Since I found my baby (baby)
Here on the island sand
Yeah, since I found my baby (baby)
Here on the island sand
It’s a paradise, I don’t mean maybe
And I’m her island man

I took her to the luau
To have some fish and poi (fish and poi)
Yeah, I took her to the luau
To have some fish and poi (fish and poi)
We danced until the morning hours
She’s my island joy

Well, let me tell you, folks (people)
The music sure was fine
Yeah, let me tell you, folks (people)
The music sure was fine
And now our island marriage with its yokes
Made dreams come true, hers and mine
Bah-ooh-ah-ooh-ah-ooh-ah-ooh-ooh
Yeah



Beautiful With Your Love (Larry W. Jones 11/29/2003) (song#2302)

 

Like a bird of paradise sings of love
Like a memory brought from heaven above
Island love is beautiful with you
Beautiful with you

Like a talk story from island days of old
Like a rainbow with a pot of gold
Island love is beautiful with you
Beautiful with you

Beautiful with your love
My future’s here with you, my island dove
You’re making all my dreams come true
They’re all beautiful with you
My future’s here with you, my island dove
My dreams are beautiful with you

Like a tropic moon upon the sea
Beams of love are here for you and me
Island love is beautiful with you

And my thoughts somehow always goes
To the beauty of an island rose
Island love is beautiful with you

Beautiful with your love
My future’s here with you, my island dove
You’re making all my dreams come true
They’re all beautiful with you
My future’s here with you, my island dove
My dreams are beautiful with you

Beautiful with your love
They’re all beautiful with you



As Blue As Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 11/29/2003) (song#2303)

 

I saw you strolling on the beach
You were just out of my reach
I guess you know I still love you
And my heart is as blue as Hawaii too

Who was in my place there by your side
I had to turn my face and hide
I guess you know I still love you
And my heart is as blue as Hawaii too

A dream of days long past
Came to my mind so clearly
A broken song that had to last
Has cost my poor heart dearly
You’re the one from paradise I dream of
Here on this empty paradise of love

Tradewinds that blow your hair and kiss you
Caress you like the way I used to do
I guess you know I still love you
And my heart is as blue as Hawaii too



The Reason I’m Me (Larry W. Jones 12/03/2003) (song#2304)

 

I’m restringing my old koa guitar
It’s about time that I do
I’ll be singing about a star
Guiding me with a love so true

We found paradise through hard times
It’s true, we’ve had more than a few
My old koa guitar will play Maui chimes
And tell the reason I’m me, must be you

The reason I’m me must be you
The reason I’m me must be you
An island love from heaven above
The reason I’m me, must be you

It’s still the season to make dreams come true
And you’re the one they’re all coming through

I’m restringing my old koa guitar
It’s about time that I do
I’ll be singing about a star
Guiding me with a love so true

The reason I’m me must be you
The reason I’m me must be you
An island love from heaven above
The reason I’m me, must be you



Tears Have Dried (Larry W. Jones 12/03/2003) (song#2305)

 

My tears have all dried because of you
My tears have all dried and skies are blue
My tears have all dried, it’s true
I’m in paradise in love with you

There’s no more tears in my heart
Since love found a place there to start
True island love played it’s part
And bade tears and loneliness depart

My tears have all dried because of you
My tears have all dried and skies are blue
Aloha ‘oe goodbye to times that I cried
I’m in paradise in love with you

There’s no more tears in my heart
Since love found a place there to start
True island love played it’s part
And bade tears and loneliness depart

My tears have all dried because of you
My tears have all dried and skies are blue
Aloha ‘oe goodbye to times that I cried
I’m in paradise in love with you



My Heart I Cross (Larry W. Jones 12/03/2003) (song#2306)

Our island love is wholehearted
Just like it has been from the start
In your eyes I can see paradise
And I can feel it in my heart
From now until eternity
We’ll stay the course we’re living now
We’ll share our love here by the sea
Make dreams come true that we have vowed

My heart I cross now with my hand
To be forever true
And be your true love island man
Here in Hawaii blue
No ocean is as deep, you’ll find
And no devotion as strong as mine

You will forever be the dream
That makes every day a treat
And as long as songs have island themes
I’ll sing along with love replete
As we look to future days
Here on the isle where dreams come true
We will always look for ways
To bring the best to me and you

My heart I cross now with my hand
To be forever true
And be your true love island man
Here in Hawaii blue
No ocean is as deep, you’ll find
And no devotion as strong as mine

And if a cloudy day should ever come
And we have to face a storm
We’ll remember where our love is from
True island love will keep us warm



I Never Dreamed (Larry W. Jones 12/03/2003) (SONG#2307)

 

I strolled around with the usual crowd
Beach bums and others who like it loud
And on this isle with skies of blue
I never dreamed that there was you

Luaus and dances came around
But lasting love could not be found
And in my mind, dreams were not true
I never dreamed that there was you

Ku’u ipo, sweetheart now it’s true
E Ke Aloha, I love you
Of all the loves in Hawaii blue
I never dreamed that there was you

I used to kid myself when I went out
Just good times was what it’s all about
But that was before I found out
I never dreamed that there was you

Ku’u ipo, sweetheart now it’s true
E Ke Aloha, I love you
Of all the loves in Hawaii blue
I never dreamed that there was you
I never dreamed that there was you



Aloha Yes I Do (Larry W. Jones 12/03/2003) (song#2308)

 

Hula girl, I love you dearly
Do you love me too
Hula girl, you are sincerely
My dream come true

Please take this island man for you
And say Aloha, yes I do
Here is my heart, please do your part
Say Aloha, yes I do, Aloha, yes I do

Please promise, my request to heed
For kisses every day, which I will need
Strolling by the bay, so deeply blue
Say Aloha, yes I do, so deeply true

Hula girl, I can’t think of any reason why
Why you and I can’t be together
Hula girl, there’s no reason here in paradise
Cause true love brings fair weather

So, please accept this ring I give
Then we’ll make all our dreams come true
Hula girl, it’s for you my heart lives
Say Aloha, yes I do, Aloha, yes I do



I Believe Because (Larry W. Jones 12/04/2003) (song#2309)

I believe in island love
Moonlit skies and stars above
I believe because I believe in you

I believe in real romance
Happy meals and hula dance
Ohana love and luaus too
I believe because I believe in you

Cry in your beer songs bring no cheer
But island songs are easy on the ear
And I like the tropic air
A flower in your silky hair
For all these things I must declare

I believe in island love
Moonlit skies and stars above
I believe because I believe in you

Some don’t know the joy of island love
They destroy the things thereof
But it’s like an island boy and poi
You can’t do without the things you love
And I believe you believe it too

I believe in island love
Moonlit skies and stars above
I believe because I believe in you



I Know Why (Larry W. Jones 12/04/2003) (song#2310)

 

I know why I love you as I do
I know why and you do too
I know why you thrill me, fill me
With love as deep as oceans blue

I know why my heart is dancing as it does
It’s not the same romancing that it was
I know why it’s better as days go by
There’s no fetter on our love in paradise

I know why I love you all the time
Maui chimes are ringing that you’re mine
I know why and you do too
I have no other island love but you

I know why I love you as I do
I know why and you do too
I know why my heart is dancing as it does
It’s not the same romancing that it was

I know why I love you all the time
Maui chimes are ringing that you’re mine
I know why and you do too
I have no other island love but you



More Than You Think (Larry W. Jones 12/04/2003) (song#2311)

Here in the tradewind air
You’ve been completely unaware
That the heart of this island man
Is at the start of being in your hand

I think about you more than you think I do
I’m on the brink of falling fast for you
The time has passed when I was feeling blue
Now at last I’m thinking of love that’s true

When I stroll along with you down by the bay
Love songs I hear have the words I want to say

I’m on the brink of love here in Hawaii blue
I think about you more than you think I do

Here in the tradewind air
You’ve been completely unaware
That the heart of this island man
Is at the start of being in your hand

I’m on the brink of love here in Hawaii blue
I think about you more than you think I do



A Song Comin’ On (Larry W. Jones 12/04/2003) (song#2312)

I feel a song comin’ on
As hand in hand we stroll along
I feel a song comin’ on
And the reason is foregone

This change in attitude
Can’t just be the latitude
Although the island helps it along
I feel a song comin’ on of gratitude

This moonlit tropic zone
Is the topic of the song
And the tradewind breezy air
Makes it easy to show I care for you

I feel a song comin’ on
That will last the whole night long
I’ll be singing it at the dawn
I feel a song comin’ on so strong

The stars that shine so bright
Twinkle as to say all right
Hold her close and hold her tight
While a song is comin’ on tonight

I feel a song comin’ on
That will last the whole night long
I’ll be singing it at the dawn
I feel a song comin’ on so strong

The stars that shine so bright
Twinkle as to say all right
Hold her close and hold her tight
While a song is comin’ on tonight



I Just Remembered (Larry W. Jones 12/04/2003) (song#2313)

I just remembered to forget that I met her
I just remembered to get her off my mind
I forgot to forget how much I miss her
Cause I missed the chance to forget her one more time

I remember the day she strolled away
I forgot all about it until today
I just remembered it was only yesterday
But I forgot how many years away

I just remembered the smile she always wore
I forgot to remember to forget once more
But I won’t forget to forget her anymore
Until the next time I forget to forget her once more

I forgot to forget how much I miss her
I remember the day she strolled away
I forgot to forget how much I miss her
I just remembered it was only yesterday



Island Flower Store (Larry W. Jones 12/04/2003) (song#2314)

I saw a shop full of island flowers
In Waikiki down by the shore
I found a pretty polynesian baby
In the island flower store
I tried to be nonchalant
But it was beyond my power
She knew what I would want
It wasn’t just an island flower
She was selling roses
And love was spelling in my eyes
I bought roses and roses and roses
Until she was getting wise
So, if you’re shopping for island flowers
In Waikiki down by the shore
You’ll see my pretty polynesian baby
In the island flower store
Island love is like an island song
You can find it everywhere
All you have to do is stroll along
And you can feel it in the air
Ah, you’ll know when it says Aloha
It may even be in a flower place
Now, let me tell you face to face
She was selling roses
And love was spelling in my eyes
I bought roses and roses and roses
Until she was getting wise
So, if you’re shopping for island flowers
In Waikiki down by the shore
You’ll see my pretty polynesian baby
In the island flower store



I Have Imagined (Larry W. Jones 12/04/2003) (song#2315)

I have imagined that your hair is lovely
I have imagined you there by the sea
And I have imagined the tradewinds whispered
Whispered your name out loud to me

I’ve seen you strolling in the evening
In my mind you were quite a view
And it seems that I have imagined
That you have imagined that I’m in love with you

I wonder if you know and how much you already knew
That my imagination shows that I’m in love with you

I’ve seen you strolling in the evening
In my mind you were quite a view
I have imagined how my heart will sing
I can’t imagine not being in love with you

I’ve seen you strolling in the evening
In my mind you were quite a view
I have imagined how my heart will sing
I can’t imagine not being in love with you



I See You Strollin’ (Larry W. Jones 12/04/2003) (song#2316)

 

I see you strollin’, around here now and then
Just keep a-rollin’, on back to where you been

Where palm trees sway, you went away
And left me on the shore
And now you’re strollin’, rock ‘n rollin’
Back here to my door

I see you strollin’, around here now and then
Just keep a-rollin’, on back to where you been

I wanted you to stay but you said Aloha ‘oe
And now you’re back here in paradise so free
I see you strollin’, around here now and then
Just keep a-rollin’, on back to where you been

Get on back to your mainland love
And don’t you call me your turtle dove
I see you strollin’, around here now and then
Just keep a-rollin’, on back to where you been



My Outrigger Canoe (Larry W. Jones 12/05/2003) (song#2317)

 

I’m never ever lonesome
No, I’m never ever lonesome
Paddlin’ around in the bay
In the sunshine every day

I’m here makin’ memories
Of all the things I see and do
Here on the shores of Waikiki
Paddlin’ in my outrigger canoe

Life is just a melody
I sing here in Hawaii blue
And I feel like I am free
Paddlin’ in my outrigger canoe

All the world could never take me
Away from Hawaii and the sea
I’ll find someone who would like to
Be paddlin’ my outrigger too

I’m here makin’ memories
Of all the things I see and do
Here on the shores of Waikiki
Paddlin’ in my outrigger canoe



Nani Pua Lehua Lei (Larry W. Jones 12/05/2003) (song#2318)

Hele mai, hele mai, ku’u ipo
Come to me, come to me, sweetheart
Ku’u lei nani pua lehua lei
You are my beautiful lehua blossom lei

Pili mau kaua, ku’u ipo
You and I will be together forever, sweetheart
Where soft and gentle breezes blow
Hele mai, hele mai, sweetheart

You are the blossom I have selected
Elected to be my heart’s desire
Ka pua nani lehua lei mau loa
To be my beautiful lehua lei forever more

E ke Aloha ku’u mele pua lehua lei
You have always been my song from the start
And I will always by you stay
Pili mau kaua, ku’u ipo, from my heart

Ha`ina mai ka puana la
Let the refrain be told
Of ku’u lei nani pua lehua lei
My beautiful lehua blossom lei



Rose Of The Southern Island Shore (Larry W. Jones 12/05/2003) (song#2319)

Far away on a lovely island shore
When the tropic sun is sinking low
And fair breezes blow
That’s when I’ll stroll to a flower in a bungalow
To my rose of the southern island shore

The moon shines bright on that southern shore
Its beams are like a beacon on her hair
She’s a lovely sight on that southern shore
Rose of the southern island shore so fair

On that southern shore, a rose is growing
She’s the sweetest island rose that I know

That rose that grows, I will see again real soon
She’s the sweetest story told of island lore
A southern moon will come to see our honeymoon
When I change the name
Of my rose of the southern island shore



Rockin’ Hula Daddy (Larry W. Jones 12/05/2003) (song#2320)

Well, he’s the rockin’ hula daddy from Ulupalakua
Rock, rock, rockin’ hula daddy
Rock, rock, rockin’ hula daddy
He’s the rockin’ hula daddy from Ulupalakua
The rockin’ hula daddy from the Maui wowee island shore

The oceans turn to foam when he does the rockin’ hula
On his Maui wowee island home
Rock, rock, rockin’ hula daddy
Rock, rock, rockin’ hula daddy
He’s the rockin’ hula daddy from Ulupalakua
The rockin’ hula daddy from the Maui wowee island shore

His hula moves are slick when he does his hula tricks
And wahinis get their kicks when his legs are movin’ hula sticks
There’s no wonder why they scream for more
He’s the rockin’ hula daddy from Ulupalakua
The rockin’ hula daddy from the Maui wowee island shore

In the town of Kula, next to Ulupalakua, he’s the best
He can do the rockin’ hula better than all the rest
Rock, rock, rockin’ hula daddy
Rock, rock, rockin’ hula daddy
He’s the rockin’ hula daddy from Ulupalakua
The rockin’ hula daddy from the Maui wowee island shore

Rock, rock, rockin’ hula daddy
Rock, rock, rockin’ hula daddy
He’s the rockin’ hula daddy from Ulupalakua
The rockin’ hula daddy from the Maui wowee island shore



Love Is An Island Thing (Larry W. Jones 12/05/2003) (song#2321)

E ke Aloha, I love you
Whispers the tradewind breeze
E ke Aloha, I love you
Echo the bays

E ke Aloha, I love you
Palm trees wave and they agree
As she receives from me
Fragrant leis

Love is an island thing
Eternal spring by the sea
Bluebirds start to sing
An island melody

E ke Aloha, I love you
Here, it’s in all love songs
And island love belongs
To you and me

Love is an island thing
Eternal spring by the sea
Bluebirds start to sing
An island melody

E ke Aloha, I love you
Here, it’s in all love songs
And island love belongs
To you and me



That’s All I Need (Larry W. Jones 12/05/2003) (song#2322)

This island life, this island life
This island life is the only life for me
Don’t need no high minded mainland company
And when my wahini whispers
Ku’u ipo, ku’u ipo, I love you
That’s all I need

Got no time for playin’ blind man’s bluff
Don’t need all that mainland stuff
I’m an island man and that’s enough
And when my wahini whispers
Ku’u ipo, ku’u ipo, I love you
That’s all I need

I’ve got my paradise, blue skies
And I’ve got my wahini I can sing to, cling to
I’ll confess my happiness, yes indeed
And when my wahini whispers
Ku’u ipo, ku’u ipo, I love you
That’s all I need

And when my wahini whispers
Ku’u ipo, ku’u ipo, I love you
That’s all I need

I’ve got my paradise, blue skies
And I’ve got my wahini I can sing to, cling to
I’ll confess my happiness, yes indeed
And when my wahini whispers
Ku’u ipo, ku’u ipo, I love you
That’s all I need

I like the simple life
I like my island life
I love my island wife
And that’s all I need



Every Day There’s More (Larry W. Jones 12/06/2003) (song#2323)

I need you every day
In every kind of way
Here in this island home
Or else I can’t go on

I need you on moonlit nights
So I can hold you tight
Nothing seems to be right
Strolling in the sand alone

When the sun goes down
Here in old Lahaina town
I just hang around
To see if you’ll come to my door

Since you strolled away
And left me on this shore
I cry a little every day
And every day there’s more

When the sun goes down
Here in old Lahaina town
I just hang around
To see if you’ll come to my door

Since you strolled away
And left me on this shore
I cry a little every day
And every day there’s more



I Will Never Marry (Larry W. Jones 12/06/2003) (song#2324)

One day as I strolled on the seashore
Tradewinds whistled and the breakers they did roar
A poor wahini I heard cry, a soulful lullabye
She was as low as the low tide ocean floor

Oh, I will never marry, I’ll be no man’s island wife
A single girl I’ll stay, for the rest of my life
For my love has gone, and love can no more start
Love has now withdrawn, I’ll die of a broken heart

My love has gone and left me, I’m alone on the shore
And never will I see him, I’ll see him never more
For my love has gone, and love can no more start
She closed her pretty brown eyes
And died of a broken heart

Oh, I will never marry, I’ll be no man’s island wife
A single girl I’ll stay, for the rest of my life
For my love has gone, and love can no more start
Love has now withdrawn, I’ll die of a broken heart

My love has gone and left me, I’m alone on the shore
And never will I see him, I’ll see him never more
For my love has gone, and love can no more start
She closed her pretty brown eyes
And died of a broken heart



Island Orchid (Larry W. Jones 12/06/2003) (song#2325)

An island orchid is a blossom
That blooms upon a far and distant shore
There are many roses that are awesome
But an island orchid even they adore

I found for me an island orchid
While I was searching for a rose
The roses, they all ran and hid
For her beauty exceeded those

True island love may just be in repose
And you may search the island wide and far
I was searching for a pretty rose
But found an island orchid was the star

Time has left many faded roses
But my island orchid is still the same to me
This fair blossom where tradewinds blow
My own true love will always be

I found for me an island orchid
While I was searching for a rose
The roses, they all ran and hid
For her beauty exceeded those

Time has left many faded roses
But my island orchid is still the same to me
This fair blossom where tradewinds blow
My own true love will always be



Man In The Moon (Larry W. Jones 12/06/2003) (song#2326)

Over the ocean, across the sea
Is where my heart so longs to be
Man in the moon above, I beg you please
Shine your beams upon the girl I love

I know there’s a tropic moon, a tropic breeze
Over on the isle across the seas
Man in the moon above, I beg you please
Shine your beams upon the girl I love

Over the ocean, across the sea
Is where my heart so longs to be
Man in the moon above, I beg you please
Shine your beams upon the girl I love

I kissed her once, some time ago
Lips soft as petals of an island rose
Man in the moon above, I beg you please
Send your beams to kiss the girl I love

Over the ocean, across the sea
Is where my heart so longs to be
Man in the moon above, I beg you please
Shine your beams upon the girl I love

Over the ocean, across the sea
Is where my heart so longs to be
Man in the moon above, I beg you please
Shine your beams upon the girl I love



Brown Eyed Jane (Larry W. Jones 12/06/2003) (song#2327)

The sweetest smile on the isle is on my brown eyed Jane
In love we fell and I could tell she was sweet as sugar cane
I asked her then and found out when those Maui chimes would sing
She said oh dear it’s very clear when I have my wedding ring

You are my girl my island pearl the sweetest girl around
My brown eyed Jane where breezes blow I tell you so
That when the sun goes down in old Lahaina town
Not in vain I will attain your love where breezes blow

My brown eyed Jane dear listen here you sweet island thing
Don’t you ever change and I’ll arrange a wedding grand
My brown eyed Jane please stay the same and we will sing
Love songs grand as we plan a life of wife and island man

When the sun goes down in old Lahaina town
Not in vain I will attain your love where breezes blow
My brown eyed Jane please stay the same and we will sing
Love songs grand as we plan a life of wife and island man

Hear this refrain my brown eyed Jane
My brown eyed Jane



Song Bird Of Paradise (Larry W. Jones 12/06/2003) (song#2328)

I have seen the shorebirds fly along the shore
And heard their song here in Hawaii blue
I have heard sandpipers pipe galore
And all the other island birds here too

But none are there that can compare
To a bird of paradise like you

My own sweet bird of paradise
Sings island songs above the rest
And every night to her I fly
To make island music in our nest

To no other song bird could I be true
For my song bird of paradise is you

My own sweet bird of paradise
Sings island songs above the rest
And every night to her I fly
To make island music in our nest

To no other song bird could I be true
For my song bird of paradise is you



Sad Moon (Larry W. Jones 12/06/2003) (song#2329)

Sometimes there comes a sad moon
Way up high in paradise
Oh, tell me why, oh tell me why
You’ve lost your laughter

Could it be, oh can’t you see
Please tell to me
Is it because I’ve lost my love

I had a dream, a paradise scene
But something’s between me and my lover
A sad tropic moon came all too soon
And then it was I discovered

Sometimes there comes a sad moon
Way up high in paradise
Oh, tell me why, oh tell me why
You’ve lost your laughter

Could it be, oh can’t you see
Please tell to me
Is it because I’ve lost my love

Sad moon, you’re not the same
It’s plain for all to see
Sad moon, is this a game
When will this pain no longer be

So I won’t have to see a sad moon
Way up high in paradise
Oh, tell me why, oh tell me why
You’ve lost your laughter

Could it be, oh can’t you see
Please tell to me
Is it because I’ve lost my love



Bonnie Leilani (Larry W. Jones 12/06/2003) (song#2330)

I know the isle to where I’m going
I know the girl by whom I’ll tarry
My love for her is overflowing
The island girl to whom I’ll marry

She has no stockings of silk rare
Nor a ring for every finger
But the fragrant flower in her hair
Speaks of love to ever linger

Tradewinds there are warm and soft
And the weather in paradise is bonnie
I’ll give all to set my dreams aloft
On the isle to marry bonnie Leilani

Friends have said, but she is poor
But I say riches is not the lure
The only cure cannot be money
For I will marry bonnie Leilani

I know the isle to where I’m going
I know the girl by whom I’ll tarry
My love for her is overflowing
The island girl to whom I’ll marry
My bonnie Leilani



Instrumental Reasons (Larry W. Jones 12/06/2003) (song#2331)

I love you for instrumental reasons
Sentimental sometimes too
But mostly it’s for instrumental reasons
That you’re the song within my heart

I love your tropic zone there by the sea
You’re the topic tradewinds are whispering
I love you for instrumental reasons
For you’re the song within my heart

My heart sings of you each morning
And I dream of you each night
It happened suddenly, no warning
The moment you strolled into sight

I love your tropic zone there by the sea
You’re the topic tradewinds are whispering
I love you for instrumental reasons
For you’re the song within my heart

I love you for instrumental reasons
Sentimental sometimes too
But mostly it’s for instrumental reasons
That you’re the song within my heart



I’ll Just Pretend (Larry W. Jones 12/06/2003) (song#2332)

Strolling the sand in tiki torch light
Hearing your name whispered in the air
All I see is the pale blue moonlight
And no flame of the island love we shared

I’ll just pretend your arms are still around me
And bring an end to this misery
I can’t depend on my heart for sympathy
So, I’ll pretend you’re still here loving me

What was it that made her change, wish I knew
Could anything have been rearranged just like new
I’ll just pretend that someday my heart will mend
And come what may, every day I’ll just pretend

Strolling the sand in tiki torch light
Hearing your name whispered in the air
All I see is the pale blue moonlight
And no flame of the island love we shared

I’ll just pretend your arms are still around me
And bring an end to this misery
I can’t depend on my heart for sympathy
So, I’ll pretend you’re still here loving me



Stumbled Mumbled Crumbled (Larry W. Jones 12/06/2003) (song#2333)

I was strolling on the isle, free as a breeze
Nobody would ever get their chains on me
But I was humbled by love, down to my knees
When I saw you stroll by me down to the sea
I stumbled for words, I mumbled all blurred
I crumbled in love with you

One dreamy kiss from one lovely miss in paradise
And I stumbled like I was skating on ice
Even though there’s no ice, it surely was nice
Just waiting to catch a breath or two
I stumbled for words, I mumbled all blurred
I crumbled in love with you

I never knew skies were so blue in paradise
Until I met you when you appeared by surprise
My mind saw a jumble of stars, moonbeams in jars
The music seemed to come from island guitars
I stumbled for words, I mumbled all blurred
I crumbled in love with you

I’ve been sick for a week, my knees are all weak
My chances of being free are all bleak
In old Lahaina town I’m the happiest man around
And it’s all due to the love I have found
I stumbled for words, I mumbled all blurred
I crumbled in love with you



Aloha ‘Oe Daddy (Larry W. Jones 12/06/2003) (song#2334)

When I was a young island boy living by the bay
My dad and I would play on the beach most every day
Now daddy’s gone away but it seems like yesterday

And I’d paddle my canoe just the way he used to do
And sing his favorite island song
And he’d tell me old talk stories of yesteryears
And tell me that ohana love would keep us strong

Even though I know I’ve really tried
Even though a million tears I’ve cried
Even though the years have crept on by
I still can’t say Aloha ‘oe daddy, goodbye

Mama kept good care of our cottage by the bay
And dad shared words of love each and every day
We all went to the luau when the moon was full and bright
And my daddy showed me how to eat poi and do it right

Tradewinds still rustle through the branches of palm trees
The light from tiki torches shine on the water bright
I still live in paradise and it’s enough for me
But I still can’t say Aloha ‘oe daddy, goodbye

Even though I know I’ve really tried
Even though a million tears I’ve cried
Even though the years have crept on by
I still can’t say Aloha ‘oe daddy, goodbye
I still can’t say Aloha ‘oe daddy, goodbye



Love Of Gold (Larry W. Jones 12/06/2003) (song#2335)

I still hear the islands calling
While here the wind is blowing cold
Hearts on palm trees, lovers scrawling
While here I miss her love of gold

I go out to see a couples dance unfold
Sit in a darkened corner all alone
While here I miss her love of gold
And then I slowly stroll on home

Oh, I’ll never forget her dark eyes
Polynesian through and through
I miss the warmth of her paradise
And her arms in Hawaii blue

I wonder if she has regrets
Not having me there to hold
I just know I can’t forget her
While here I miss her love of gold



Leilani Shanty (Larry W. Jones 12/07/2003) (song#2336)

Leilani, Leilani where did you go
Yo ho, winds blow, me Lani I don’t know
Leilani, Leilani where did you go
Yo ho, winds blow, me Lani I don’t know

Sky high, sky high these sails must go
Up high, up high where breezes blow

Leilani, Leilani where did you go
Yo ho, winds blow, me Lani I don’t know
Leilani, Leilani where did you go
Yo ho, winds blow, me Lani I don’t know

Around the horn we’ll fight the ice and snow
By morn we’ll be where heaven only knows

Leilani, Leilani where did you go
Yo ho, winds blow, me Lani I don’t know
Leilani, Leilani where did you go
Yo ho, winds blow, me Lani I don’t know

The captain’s yelling get this spar aloft
Rather I’d be dwelling with me Lani oh so soft

Leilani, Leilani where did you go
Yo ho, winds blow, me Lani I don’t know
Leilani, Leilani where did you go
Yo ho, winds blow, me Lani I don’t know



Leilani Shanty (Larry W. Jones 12/07/2003) (song#2336)

I had a conversation with palm trees
But they didn’t seem to be too pleased
So I told my troubles to the stars
But they told me I should go see Mars
And the tradewinds breezed on by
With no answer to my cries
They all must think that I’m insane

And then you heard my pleading words
Reached out to me so undeterred
Touched my broken heartstrings too
And made all my dreams come true
You listened to my broken song
And showed me love to make me strong

I can see our wedding on a summer night
Dancing underneath the soft moonlight
Making all the wrongs turn out so right
With music from the island steel guitars

I will tell of all the places I have been
If you’ll just give me half a chance
And then we’ll hear more island violins
While we show the moon our one more dance

And then you heard my pleading words
Reached out to me so undeterred
Touched my broken heartstrings too
And made all my dreams come true
You listened to my broken song
And showed me love to make me strong
I’m glad my words were not in vain



Brown Eyed Lady (Larry W. Jones 12/07/2003) (song#2338)

At twilight I dream of you
Brown eyed lady, when we first met
We danced in Hawaii blue
And my heart yearns for you yet

Brown were your eyes
Straight from paradise
Soft brown was your skin I adore
Return, brown eyed lady, return
So my heart won’t be blue any more

I strolled on the shore one night
And heard steel guitars softly play
You were there and the moon was so bright
We danced by the moonlight bay

You were the brown eyed lady I knew
It was like heaven dancing with you
You were like palm trees when they sway
Then someone new came and stole you away

At twilight I dream of you
Brown eyed lady, when we first met
We danced in Hawaii blue
And my heart yearns for you yet

Brown were your eyes
Straight from paradise
Soft brown was your skin I adore
Return, brown eyed lady, return
So my heart won’t be blue any more



A Timeless Island Song (Larry W. Jones 12/11/2003) (song#2339)

I have loved you for so long
Like a timeless island song
It’s too bad that you may never know
Unless the tradewinds blow your love to me

The first time I ever saw you
Oh, how I wanted to know your name
Whether under skies of gray or blue
Paradise will follow you the same

My heart will search for you forever
And maybe time will do its part
And if in time I find you ever
Never more will love be set apart

And if in time I find you ever
Island songs will fill the tropic air
I will sing them loud so you can hear me
And place a flower in your hair

I will sing them loud so you can hear me
Whether under skies of gray or blue
My heart will always want you near me
For I have always been in love with you



Come What May (Larry W. Jones 12/11/2003) (song#2340)

I watched as you strolled away
Some things just turn out that way
You’ll go away like tradewinds blow
But love will be with you every day

For I will love you always, come what may

Memories of mine will be bitter sweet
So sorry I’m not the one you need
But I hope you will stroll on easy street
And find true love in word and deed’s pathway

And I will love you always, come what may

I wish you the best that life can bring
Like all the things that I dreamed of
Knowing that might help ease the sting
Of watching a dream of love stroll away

I watched as you strolled away
Some things just turn out that way
You’ll go away like tradewinds blow
But love will be with you every day

For I will love you always, come what may



Young Island Boy (Larry W. Jones 12/11/2003) (song#2341)

At my first mainland job in Frisco
An old island man spoke his mind
But I was too young then to find
The wisdom in words that he said

Young island boy, I’ll not woo wahinis again
Or chase after dreams on tradewinds
I’m old and I’m facing the end
And I wish I were a young island boy again

I wish I were a young island boy again
So I could chase after dreams on tradewinds
But old island men who now face the end
Recall when islands call, and pretend
That they’re still young island boys again

The pages of time have now turned on me
And the mainland life goes by too fast
Years have taken most dreams out to sea
Young island boys think money will last
And dreams will go on endlessly

I wish I were a young island boy again
So I could chase after dreams on tradewinds
But old island men who now face the end
Recall when islands call, and pretend
That they’re still young island boys again

Wish I were a young island boy again



I’m Wishing (Larry W. Jones 12/11/2003) (song#2342)

Looking out my cottage window
Watching palm trees gently blow
And the ocean as it tumbles
Over the reef and down below
And the light from the tiki fires
Flicker softly through the year
Bringing back such warm desires
And I’m wishing that you were here

Weekends in old Lahaina town
There’s lots of things that I could do
Like watching the tropic sun go down
Humming songs that remind me of you
Oh, I tried to read the Lahaina News
Through a newly forming tear
And it’s clear that I still miss you
And I’m wishing that you were here

I keep hoping to see you strolling
Once again to my cottage door
But like the waves that keep on rolling
I’ve hoped for things like that before
And the time just goes on past
Slowly on the island, as last year
My dreams have all away been cast
And I’m wishing that you were here



I Wish You Aloha Love (Larry W. Jones 12/11/2003) (song#2343)

 

Birds of paradise in the spring
Island songs for your heart to sing
A dream that you just can’t miss
All these things and a little kiss
Are the things I wish, but more than this
I wish you Aloha love

And in June, a golden yellow moon
A mellow time for love to swoon
I wish you more on the island shore
But one thing I wish for me
I wish you to know how tenderly
I wish you Aloha love

I wish you a cool breeze when it’s warm
And please keep all your charms
I wish you happiness and that’s not all
I wish that you hear when islands call
With love as true as heavens above
I wish you Aloha love

And in June, a golden yellow moon
A mellow time for love to swoon
I wish you more on the island shore
But one thing I wish for me
I wish you to know how tenderly
I wish you Aloha love



Kinfolks On The Isle (Larry W. Jones 12/11/2003) (song#2344)

 

I wonder about my kinfolks on the isle
Do they miss me as I roam
I wonder if they wonder if I still smile
So far away from my island home

I still hear longhorns lowin’ on the Parker range
Some things on the big isle never change
This mainland’s too full of things not worthwhile
I wonder about my kinfolks on the isle

Ohana love to keep a soul from harm
Just a little cottage on the big island shore
Hope I haven’t gone and sold the farm
Just a little cottage on the big island shore

I still hear longhorns lowin’ on thr Parker range
Some things on the big isle never change
This mainland’s too full of things not worthwhile
I wonder about my kinfolks on the isle

I wonder about my kinfolks on the isle
Do they miss me as I roam
I wonder if they wonder if I still smile
So far away from my island home



Because You’re You (Larry W. Jones 12/12/2003) (song#2345)

 

I know just why I love you as I do, yes I do
I know just why I love you, and why I care
It’s not just the flower in your hair
Or when you’re near, the love that’s in the air
I just love you because you’re you, a dream come true
I just love you because you’re you

I know just why I love you as I do
It helps to know that you will love me too
I know just why this is paradise
It’s not just the heaven in your eyes
I just love you because you’re you, a dream come true
I just love you because you’re you

Some people say that young love breaks apart
That’s not the way I see it in my heart
I feel that island love will do its part
And then we’ll both know why we love as we do

When you stroll hand in hand with me, like you do
I know love’s command will see us through
The skies in paradise will bring rainbows
While true love will let the blessings flow
I just love you because you’re you, a dream come true
I just love you because you’re you



I Won’t Remind You (Larry W. Jones 12/12/2003) (song#2346)

Well, I know you’ve heard it all before
How dreams can sometimes turn out blue
What will I do on this lonely island shore
But I won’t remind you any more

I won’t remind you any more
That I’ll think about you when you’re far away
I’ll be OK but not like before
But I won’t remind you of that today
My love will be here where tradewinds blow
Even though it will feel the cold of rain
It pains me to say before you go
I won’t remind you any more

Love must have found December much too soon
I remember the warm nights of island June
I remind myself that each island day will start
With reminders of your cold and empty heart

I won’t remind you any more
That I’ll think about you when you’re far away
I’ll be OK but not like before
But I won’t remind you of that today
My love will be here where tradewinds blow
Even though it will feel the cold of rain
It pains me to say before you go
I won’t remind you any more

My love will be here where tradewinds blow
Even though it will feel the cold of rain
It pains me to say before you go
I won’t remind you any more



I Won’t Remind You (Larry W. Jones 12/12/2003) (song#2346)

 

I am the tradewind, and I whisper island songs
I am the breeze, sing where I please
I am the tradewind, hear my song

I whisper the songs with moonlight lovers names
I whisper the songs and move the tiki torches flames
I whisper the songs only heard in isles of paradise
I whisper the songs that lovers recognize

I am the tradewind around you
I whisper love songs that surround you
I am the breeze that keeps you from the cold
I am the tradewind with songs from days of old

I whisper the songs with moonlight lovers names
I whisper the songs and move the tiki torches flames
I whisper the songs only heard in isles of paradise
I whisper the songs that lovers recognize

My songs are sung for sweet romance
I whisper, you’re young so take a chance
I even know kiho’alu and ukulele too
Island music to make a dream come true

I whisper the songs with moonlight lovers names
I whisper the songs and move the tiki torches flames
I whisper the songs only heard in isles of paradise
I whisper the songs that lovers recognize

I am the tradewind, and I whisper island songs
I am the breeze, sing where I please
I am the tradewind, hear my song



An Island Fair (Larry W. Jones 12/12/2003) (song#2348)

 

I’d like to find an island fair
One that’s made for love
With tall palm trees and waters there
Warmed by the sun above

I’d like to sing some island songs
And share them with the world
Songs with words where love belongs
For every boy and girl

I’d like to find a valley isle
Where couples are hand in hand
And welcome all who want to smile
Because of love on island sand

That’s the isle I’d like to find
One that’s made for love
With tall palm trees and waters there
Warmed by the sun above

I’d like to sing some island songs
And share them with the world
Songs with words where love belongs
For every boy and girl

I’d like to find a valley isle
Where couples are hand in hand
And welcome all who want to smile
Because of love on island sand



I’ll Come Whenever (Larry W. Jones 12/12/2003) (song#2349)

 

I’ll come whenever the islands call
Be it in early summer
A pearl you are in early summer
Where tradewinds blow
A bright red flower for your hair
A tiki torch is burning there
But not as warm as my heart
With love for you and tender care

I’ll come whenever the islands call
Be it in the early autumn
The harvest moon of early autumn
Will have a golden glow
Moonlight on the bay will sparkle
Love will be in the air
If the islands call in early autumn
You know I’ll be there

I will come to you in winter
For warm islands laugh at snow
I will come to you in winter
Underneath the tiki torches glow

I’ll come whenever the islands call
In the early springtime of the year
Knowing you’ll be near to catch a heart that falls
Oh, yes, in the early springtime
Early summer, winter or early fall
I’ll come to you my darling
Whenever, whenever the islands call



Who’s Strolling (Larry W. Jones 12/12/2003) (song#2350)

 

You have loved island girls where soft tradewinds blow
And each wahini came from paradise
You told each one that you loved her, although I know
Your vows have only been lies
You have strolled beneath the stars
And the fullness of the tropic moon
Romanced to island steel guitars
In the balmy month of June
Then you left each one as you strolled away
I wonder if some day you’ll pay
And I wonder if she’s strolling with somebody new

I wonder who’s strolling with her now
Wonder if her dreams came true somehow
Wonder who’s with her under velvet skies
Wearing his disguise
In paradise
I wonder if she strolls along with joy
Singing songs with another island boy
Wonder if she remembers me anyhow
I wonder who’s strolling with her now

If you want all your dreams to turn out blue
Then think of your own true love who’s gone amiss
Somewhere with her charms in other arms being kissed
Lips like wine that now dine with someone new
But dreams in paradise, although very nice
Seem to come and go like the wind
That’s why I wonder who’s strolling with her now
Or who’ll be strolling with her in the end

I wonder who’s strolling with her now
Wonder if her dreams came true somehow
Wonder who’s with her under velvet skies
Wearing his disguise
In paradise
I wonder if she strolls along with joy
Singing songs with another island boy
Wonder if she remembers me anyhow
I wonder who’s strolling with her now



This Flower Lei (Larry W. Jones 12/12/2003) (song#2351)

 

Now that you’re sailing
Ku’u ipo, Aloha ‘oe sweetheart
We’ll meet again in paradise
Please wear this flower lei around you
Smile for me and try not to cry

This flower lei will hold my kiss
Aloha ‘oe til we meet again real soon
You’re sailing this eve, and how our hearts grieve
Come again with the tide of full moon

When steel guitars play Aloha ‘oe
Such a bittersweet refrain
Wear this flower lei around you
Aloha ‘oe sweetheart until we meet again

Now, be cheerful and give me a smile
E ke Aloha ku’u ipo
You’ll soon return here to the isle
Please wear this lei of love around you
A token from my heart for awhile

This flower lei will hold my kiss
Aloha ‘oe til we meet again real soon
You’re sailing this eve, and how our hearts grieve
Come again with the tide of full moon

When steel guitars play Aloha ‘oe
Such a bittersweet refrain
Wear this flower lei around you
Aloha ‘oe sweetheart until we meet again



A Luau And A Lei (Larry W. Jones 12/12/2003) (song#2352)

 

You and I deserve a little break
So I’ll tell you what we’ll do
We’ll stay awhile in Aloha sand
And here’s what you must do

Law of the land says you must
Wear a fragrant flower in your hair
The moon there won’t turn to rust
We’ll use all the moonbeams there

We’ll find a safety deposit vault
For all our mainland aches and pains
We’ll taste the briny ocean’s salt
And watch rainbows through the rain

You must stroll along barefooted
And hum an island song
Then you must listen to the bid
Of the endless waves rolling along

If you must act like a tourist
Then watch some swaying hips
Of local hula ladies kissed
By the sun with polynesian lips

Sip a tall Hawaiian rainbow
Made of nectars with funny names
Then twirl the little umbrella
While it sets your heart aflame

And if all this sounds nilly willy
Here’s one more thing I have to say
I’ll take you to, and give you, really
A luau and a lei



An Island For You (Larry W. Jones 12/12/2003) (song#2353)

 

If I could build an island for you
I would plant a little paradise
Lehua blossoms would grow where you stroll
And rainbows would paint the skies
And I would use the warm summer rain
To wash away all your heartache pain
If I could build an island for you
A little bit of paradise called home

If I could build an island for you
I would ask the moon up high above
To supply moonbeams of golden hue
And shine its light of island love
And I’d give all my love to you
There in our little tropic zone
If I could build an island for you
A little bit of paradise called home

If I could build an island for you
Gold and silver would be the sun
And the greatest gift of love so true
I’d give to you and to you alone
Every day would be a fine tomorrow
Lined with island love and never sorrow
If I could build an island for you
A little bit of paradise called home



Island Made For Love (Larry W. Jones 12/12/2003) (song#2354)

 

If we were on an island made for love
I could want for nothing else
Under stars at night I’d hold you
And I would keep you to myself
Deep in my heart
Like a hidden treasure chart
If we were on an island made for love

If we were on an island made for love
And I could share with you my dreams
I could keep in touch with heaven above
To help me see them through
Right from the start
Island love would play its part
If we were on an island made for love

Where tradewinds blow
Everybody knows
There’s a lot you can do in paradise
To see that dreams come true
And we would see that love never dies
When it comes to me and you
If we were on an island made for love

And we would see that love never dies
When it comes to me and you
If we were on an island made for love



Your Love Only (Larry W. Jones 12/13/2003) (song#2355)

 

If your love only I should win
Birds of paradise would sing
Never away would my heart stray
From your love and wedding ring

If your love only I should win
It would live if it took my all
It would last the same as when begins
The love that comes when islands call

I don’t know if I could ever say
Just how deeply I crave your love
But you could mold my heart of clay
Underneath the tropic moon above

If your love only I should win
It would live if it took my all
It would last the same as when begins
The love that comes when islands call

I don’t know if I could ever say
Just how deeply I crave your love
But you could mold my heart of clay
Underneath the tropic moon above



Lovingly (Larry W. Jones 12/13/2003) (song#2356)

 

The tradewind breeze blew through the trees lovingly
The tall palm trees swayed so pleased lovingly
Then lovers came strolling by
And they could hear breezes sigh

Waves came across the bay to kiss the shore lovingly
And that’s the way two hearts then met lovingly
All your charms I found within my arms
Then your lips were pressed to mine so lovingly

The tradewind breeze blew through the trees lovingly
The tall palm trees swayed so pleased lovingly
Then lovers came strolling by
And they could hear breezes sigh

Waves came across the bay to kiss the shore lovingly
And that’s the way two hearts then met lovingly
All your charms I found within my arms
Then your lips were pressed to mine so lovingly



Foolish Heart (Larry W. Jones 12/13/2003) (song#2357)

 

Foolish heart, my foolish heart’s still beating
Even though it knows the wrong it has done
The love it drove away knew no cheating
Foolish heart, where there was love now there’s none

An isle of paradise was what she dreamed of
Our plans were more than dreams at the start
Now I’m all alone like an island in the stream
And I put the blame on you, my foolish heart

Foolish heart, oh, foolish heart, who can know you
There’s no gain in your bringing on such pain
She’s gone like an island song into the blue
Foolish heart, you’ll never feel her love again

Come what may, future days will see the sorrow
When the memory of her love will not depart
And I know her love will never call tomorrow
All she’ll recall is the beating of a foolish heart

Look at all the times I needed you to point me
But you steered me to an ocean full of tears
Was it just me or did you disappoint me
Foolish heart, what will you do as love disappears



Fort Knox And You (Larry W. Jones 12/13/2003) (song#2358)

Guilded thrones and castles in the sand
Gold laden ships from seven seas
All the treasure that belongs to man
Now belongs to only me
Though it seems an unlikely scheme
Dreams sometimes come true
So the theme of my song
Is that all my dreams are songs you

With all the gold in Fort Knox
I’ll tell you just what I’d do
I would buy an island in the stream
And spend my days there loving you
Little things to help a girl get through
Rainbows for a ring and moonbeams too
Anything your heart desires each day
Along with my love so true

If I spent every dime I had
I would still be happy without a care
Because your love would make me glad
I’d be a millionaire as long as you were there
That’s why I have castles in the sand
Gold laden ships from seven seas
Dreaming of the treasure that I’d own
With all the gold in Fort Knox and you

That’s why I have castles in the sand
Gold laden ships from seven seas
Dreaming of the treasure that I’d own
With all the gold in Fort Knox and you



Wahinis Brown n Tall (Larry W. Jones 12/13/2003) (song#2359)

 

If I had my druthers
I’d druther be with my brothers
On the island where tradewinds call
And I’d druther be dreamin’
Maybe even schemin’
Bout wahinis growin’ brown ‘n tall

While they’re doin’ with the hula
I’d be spendin’ all my moola
Over at the free Kodak hula show
If I had my druthers
I’d druther be dreamin’
Maybe even schemin’
Bout wahinis growin’ brown ‘n tall

If I had my druthers
I’d druther be with my brothers
Than with the queen mother in Westminster hall
It ain’t that England’s rainy
I jus’ likes the sand that’s grainy
An’ wahinis growin’ brown ‘n tall

I strolls there for hours
Contemplatin’ island flowers
An’ how they grows when the raindrops fall
If I had my druthers
I’d druther be dreamin’
Maybe even schemin’
Bout wahinis growin’ brown ‘n tall



Moonlight Memories (Larry W. Jones 12/13/2003) (song#2360)

 

Pineapples and lime
Moonlight memories sublime
She strolled into his mind once more
The same island shore
Just asking for more
Went to the luau feeling blue
He still hears her name, a tiki torch flame
He tried to forget but he’s a moonlight memories fool

He’s a fool for moonlight memories
Lost in an empty sea
Shipwrecked heart on a lonely shore
He’s a fool for moonlight memories
Goes to luaus faithfully
So moonlight memories can fool him once more

She was such an island charm
When she was in his arms
A polynesian pearl who strolled away
A hundred tropic moons
A thousand island tunes
He still hopes she’ll stroll back some day
Pineapples and lime
Moonlight memories sublime
The luau band is coming on
It’s time to turn moonlight memories on

He’s a fool for moonlight memories
Lost in an empty sea
Shipwrecked heart on a lonely shore
He’s a fool for moonlight memories
Goes to luaus faithfully
So moonlight memories can fool him once more



Big Kahuna Lullabye (Larry W. Jones 12/13/2003) (song#2361)

 

Your daddy they call the big kahuna
So, big kahuna is his name
It takes a big island man to be a big kahuna
And that’s what your big island daddy became

Polynesians know his fame, your daddy big kahuna
Wherever islands are
Just like King Kamehameha united all the islands
Near and far

So, sleep now my small kahuna
Don’t cry in paradise
In the sky is the full moon-a
Singing island lullabyes

Now I’ll tell you a big kahuna secret
But it’s well known in Hawaii blue
I’ll bet you didn’t know
Where tradewinds blow
That your daddy big kahuna
Was once a small kahuna like you



Quietly (Larry W. Jones 12/13/2003) (song#2362)

 

Quietly polynesian eyes looked into mine
Smilingly in Hawaii blue
Warmly I felt your hand in mine
It felt like heaven holding you

Quietly, as the moon grew full
Quietly, we felt love’s magic pull
Quietly, under love’s moonbeams
Our true love was more than dreams

Quietly I kissed your lips of wine
Soft as an island song
Quietly heartstrings were entertwined
True love was new yet oh, so strong

Quietly the time passed by too soon
Aloha ‘oe meant we must part
Quietly we’ll meet again beneath the moon
Aloha ‘oe ku’u ipo, sweetheart



I Makemake Ku’u With Me (Larry W. Jones 12/13/2003) (song #2363)

 

When I was a li’ili’i keiki kane, my makuahine said to me
Someday you’ll find ke Aloha ipo to last mau loa
So, here you are, please go ma na wahi apau I go
Please never leave me, E ke Aloha ku’u ipo so

I’ll be the ali’i kane of every island in the world
If you will only be ku’u wahini island girl
I makemake ‘oe with me in na mea apau I do
Because I love you baby, E ke Aloha ku’u ipo

There can be no mauna that I can’t climb
Show me the mauna, baby, and I’ll show you I can climb
I makemake ku’u with me i ka po and ao too
Yes, you make me hau’ oli with your love so true

I’ll swim the moana and fight the nalu ‘ale
For I know you will be there when ho’i hou kauhale
I makemake ku’u with me for E ke Aloha ku’u ipo so
‘Ae, I makemake ku’u with me ku’u ipo, I ‘a ‘ole hele aku go
‘Ae, I makemake ku’u with me ku’u ipo, I ‘a ‘ole hele aku go



Larry Said Aloha (Larry W. Jones 12/13/2003) (song#2364)

 

She’s the girl with the flower in her hair
Sitting over there
Face beyond compare
I’d like to run and hold her in my arms
But I’m afraid she’d run with all her charms
Just tell her Larry said Aloha

I’d like to start over from the start
Pour out my lonely heart
Beg her not depart
I’d like to be believing
That for me she still has feeling, but
Just tell her Larry said Aloha

Just tell her Larry said Aloha
Just tell her Larry still adores her

Don’t let her know my heart is blue
Bluer that the skies in Hawaii too
Don’t let her know I’m still dreaming of her
Don’t let her know that I esteem her
Just tell her Larry said Aloha

Just tell her Larry said Aloha



Lonesome Island Man (Larry W. Jones 12/13/2003) (song#2365)

 

Well, it’s a lonesome island man
Who strolls all around
Yeah, it’s a lonesome island man
Who roams around old Lahaina town
Looking, always watching
For a dream he cannot find
Praying, without words saying
That love will someday ease his mind

It’s a lonesome island man
Who strolls all alone
In a tropic zone
With no love to call his own

Looking at a sad moon
Wishing for a glad moon
If you see that lonesome island man
Stop and say hello
I need a helping hand
I’m a lonesome island man

Looking at a sad moon
Wishing for a glad moon
If you see that lonesome island man
Stop and say hello
I need a helping hand
I’m a lonesome island man



Three Special Dreams (Larry W. Jones 12/14/2003) (song#2366)

 

Once upon a time I had three special dreams
The first dream was all about you
I dreamed that you became my only true love
And I gave the other two back to you

Once upon a time I had three special dreams
The first dream was of you and you alone
The other things I dreamed of, I don’t need, it seems
Cause they’d be mine when I had you for my own

But I never passed a dream by, here in paradise
So, here’s what I did with the other two

Once upon a time I had three special dreams
The first dream was all about you
The second and the third dreams had island themes
Both were dreams that my first dream came true
All my dreams turned out to be you



I Wish (Larry W. Jones 12/14/2003) (song#2367)

 

Oh, I wish I could tell you how much I love you
Many times I wanted you to know
Time and time those Maui chimes would tease me
Then, like the breeze, you always seemed to go

Oh, I wish I could tell you how much I love you
It should be easy here where tradewinds blow
But I’m always uneasy about just what to do
And my head goes ’round in circles before I go

Oh, I wish I could tell you how much I love you
But I’m the kind who’s unsure and shy
So, once again I let you and my dreams drift by

I’m afraid that love would fade and you’d leave me
You’d stroll away some day like mist from off the bay
Oh, I wish I could tell you how much I love you
But I guess you’ll never ever know



If Only I Owned The Moon (Larry W. Jones 12/14/2003) (song#2368)

 

A man’s an empty basket
Might as well own a casket
Or fly away on a balloon
If he doesn’t own a love
Like the one I’m dreaming of
If only I owned the moon

I’d be so in tune
I’d find a girl to swoon
Every month would be
By the sea in June
I’d be a bird of paradise
Sing songs that sounded nice
If only I owned the moon

I can just picture me
Strolling by the sea
Island guitars playing low
While soft tradewinds blow

The island drums now beat
A rhythm for my feet
And it sounds so sweet
Like hearts when they’re in tune
The night is young and so are we
And she’d be mine eternally
If only I owned the moon

The night is young and so are we
And she’d be mine eternally
If only I owned the moon



I Have Known An Island (Larry W. Jones 12/14/2003) (song#2369)

I have known a time for tropic skies
Rainbows and birds of paradise
And steel guitars that harmonize with love

I have known a time for strolling in the sand
A time for wahini girl and island man
Fulfilling dreams that began above

I have known a time for being close together
Seeing rainbows come from rainy weather
A time for plans and brown suntans thereof

I have known that time does not stand still
Just look at the old run down sugar mill

But until the final curtain falls
I have to tell you all that I have known
A time for tropic skies
Rainbows and birds of paradise
But best of all where I have roamed
I have known an island made for love



A-L-O-H-A Leilani (Larry W. Jones 12/14/2003) (song#2370)

 

When Makani played the ukulele
Leilani thought he was really cool
He played the strings like a busy bee
And this is what he sang for Leilani
When they were in Kamehameha school

“A” is for Aloha ku’u ipo, I love you
You’re my sweet Leilani
And I like to play the ukulele cool
For a dream come true

“L” is for the loveliness
Of your polynesian eyes
Straight from paradise
Under polynesian skies of blue

“O” is for the only girl
That I will ever love
Underneath the tropic moon above
When I’m strolling hand in hand with you

“H” is for the heavenly way
You do your heavenly hula sway
When we’re at the luau by the bay
And your heavenly lips when I kiss you

“A” is for Aloha ku’u ipo, I love you
You’re my sweet Leilani
And I like to play the ukulele cool
For a dream come true

You’re my sweet Leilani
And I like to play the ukulele cool
For a dream come true
Aloha ku’u ipo, sweetheart I love you



Yesterday Dream (Larry W. Jones 12/14/2003) (song#2371)

 

The sun won’t come out tomorrow
Tomorrow will just bring sorrow
Tomorrow there won’t be no sun

So, I’m just dreaming about yesterday
Years away in the past but no sorrow
Yesterday was fun in the island sun

Well, today is gray and tomorrow’s lonely
An island in the stream ain’t the only one to say

The sun won’t come out tomorrow
Tomorrow will just bring sorrow
So, I’m just dreaming about yesterday
Down by the bay
Yesterday is only a lonely dream away

The sun won’t come out tomorrow
Tomorrow will just bring sorrow
Tomorrow there won’t be no sun

So, I’m just dreaming about yesterday
Years away in the past but no sorrow
Yesterday was fun in the island sun

Well, today is gray and tomorrow’s lonely
An island in the stream ain’t the only one to say

The sun won’t come out tomorrow
Tomorrow will just bring sorrow
So, I’m just dreaming about yesterday
Down by the bay
Yesterday is only a lonely dream away

Yesterday, yesterday, I dream of yesterday
Yesterday is only a lonely dream away



Wherever I Roam (Larry W. Jones 12/14/2003) (song#2372)

The island was warm as she welcomed me
Paradise was in her eyes bright
That’s why I crossed the ocean and sea
Sailing for days and for nights, for

Wherever I wander, wherever I roam
Until I’m on her isle again, where love began
My ship and my heart will find no home
Wherever I wander, wherever I roam

The tradewinds there softly caress
The flower in her hair with tenderness
And her hand is so gentle to hold
Gold is the sand of her island home

Wherever I wander, wherever I roam
Until I’m on her isle again, where love began
My ship and my heart will find no home
Wherever I wander, wherever I roam

Pearls were her tears, like morning dew
When we said Aloha ‘oe goodbye
The fears that I have I hope never come true
As I steer my ship over oceans wide

Wherever I wander, wherever I roam
Until I’m on her isle again, where love began
My ship and my heart will find no home
Wherever I wander, wherever I roam



Aloha ‘Oe To Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 12/14/2003) (song#2373)

Aloha ‘oe to Hawaii
Goodbye to my Hawaii
Island of sun and brown wahinis
Isle of renown with tropical breezes
Where I found a dream to call my own

Aloha ‘oe to Hawaii
This goodbye means that I’ll return
Save a rainbow for your wedding ring
Waves and oceans, they don’t mean a thing
For my love for you will ever burn

Goodbye my love and to Hawaii
Aloha ‘oe means that I’ll return

Aloha ‘oe to Hawaii
Goodbye to my Hawaii
Island of sun and brown wahinis
Isle of renown with tropical breezes
Where I found a dream to call my own

Aloha ‘oe to Hawaii
This goodbye means that I’ll return
Save a rainbow for your wedding ring
Waves and oceans, they don’t mean a thing
For my love for you will ever burn



On An Island Of Paradise (Larry W. Jones 12/14/2003) (song#2374)

You must not forget where you first met
The tropic sun had on the island set
And it was paradise
Fundamental love has no regrets
All dreams of love haven’t been dreamed yet
On an island of paradise

When island love there comes for two
They still say Aloha, I love you
Stars are in their eyes
You can rely on skies of blue
The night is young and so are you
On an island of paradise

A full yellow moon in a velvet night
Hangs around til the morning light
And it sure is nice
A woman and a man start out right
In island sand with vows so bright
On an island of paradise

It’s not just an old talk story
Island love in all its glory
Is one that never dies
It will be the same for eternity
True love was meant for you and me
On an island of paradise

It will be the same for eternity
True love was meant for you and me
On an island of paradise



Only One Island (Larry W. Jones 12/15/2003) (song#2375)

If there was only one island in the sea
For the only girl and boy
It wouldn’t matter what the neighbors say
There wouldn’t be any
And we could throw a little luau by the bay
Eatin’ all the fish and poi
If there was only one island in the sea

A tropical garden of eden in the blue
Paradise for me and you
No one would care if I placed a flower in your hair
They wouldn’t be there
And we could stroll the sand in the balmy air
Lovin’ without a care
If there was only one island in the sea

There would be things to do and things to see
And songs to sing about I love thee
I could make you swoon beneath the moon
Nobody else would see
And every month would be the month of June
Don’t wake me up too soon
If there was only one island in the sea

And every month would be the month of June
Don’t wake me up too soon
If there was only one island in the sea



I’ll Pretend (Larry W. Jones 12/15/2003) (song#2376)

I will deck the luau with tuberoses
Such a fragrant scent will fill the air
And I’ll pretend that she supposes
That I really wanted to be there
All my friends will come and thank me
For putting up all the tiki torch lights
And though my heart will be rent in two tomorrow
I’ll pretend with smiles on the isle tonight

I’ll be all smiles on the isle tonight, dear
I’ll be all smiles on the isle tonight
And though my heart will be rent in two tomorrow
I’ll pretend with smiles on the isle tonight

And when the wedding luau dance commences
I’ll pretend to enhance my faulting voice
I’ll sing along just like an island prince
Oh, how I’ll put on that I rejoice
When friends come around from old Lahaina town
I’ll smile at them and hide all my sorrow
And though my heart will be rent in two tomorrow
I’ll pretend with smiles on the isle tonight

And when he strolls out on the beach
With his brand new bride within his reach
I’ll pretend that I’m the man in his shoes
Even though I know tomorrow I’ll sing the blues
And if she turns and smiles at me
My heart will burn but I’ll find a smile to borrow
And though my heart will be rent in two tomorrow
I’ll pretend with smiles on the isle tonight



Moonlight In A June Night (Larry W. Jones 12/15/2003) (song#2377)

 

The tropic sun is setting far away
Soon the moonlight will sparkle on the bay
And when there’s moonlight in a June night
I’ll return and never more will stray

I miss your kiss where breezes blow today
I know today that I’ll find a way
And when there’s moonlight in a June night
I’ll return and never more will stray

To where the tradewinds blow
And where love will flow
That’s where I’ll go to stay

It feels so wrong when I’m far away
I can hear the song of the isle today
And when there’s moonlight in a June night
I’ll return and never more will stray

To where the tradewinds blow
And where love will flow
That’s where I’ll go to stay

To where the tradewinds blow
And where love will flow
That’s where I’ll go to stay



The Same Old Memory (Larry W. Jones 12/15/2003) (song#2378)

 

The same old memory, same old familiar places
I still pick you out from all the other faces
The same old small cafe, down by the bay
Kapiolani park, Waikiki, the same old memory

I remember you in the sunny island days
I remember you in a million brand new ways
In the same old memory of island sand today

I remember you in the tropic sun
When the twilight comes I’ll remember too
You’ll be strolling underneath the moon
And I’ll have the same old memory here soon

The same old memory, same old familiar places
I still pick you out from all the other faces
The same old small cafe, down by the bay
Kapiolani park, Waikiki, the same old memory

I remember you in the sunny island days
I remember you in a million brand new ways
In the same old memory of island sand today
Same old memory of island sand today



This Dream (Larry W. Jones 12/15/2003) (song#2379)

I’ll follow this dream here in my heart
Out into the blue
I’ll follow this dream here in my heart
Until I find you

I’ll keep this dream here in my heart
All other dreams I’ll keep apart
And when true love comes to my heart
I’ll give this dream to you

No matter what land or sunny isle
I’ll follow this dream right through
In the hollow of my heart I’ll file
This dream that will come true

I’ll keep this dream here in my heart
All other dreams I’ll keep apart
And when true love comes to my heart
I’ll give this dream to you

All other dreams I’ll keep apart
And when true love comes to my heart
I’ll give this dream to you



I’ll Get Along (Larry W. Jones 12/15/2003) (song#2380)

 

I’ll get along
As long as I have a song of you
I’ll be strong, I won’t do wrong
As long as I have a song of you

I’ll sail away
Anchor my boat there in your bay
I’ll stroll along, where I belong
As long as I have a song of you

I’ll get along
I’ll go to old Hong Kong
Find a silk sarong, it won’t be long
As long as I have a song of you

I’ll sail away
Anchor my boat there in your bay
I’ll stroll along, where I belong
As long as I have a song of you

I’ll get along
As long as I have a song of you
As long as I have a song of you



I’ll Be Your Island Man (Larry W. Jones 12/15/2003) (song#2381)

Well, it may not be the time
But I was hoping you wouldn’t mind
And what I want to tell you just can’t wait
I hope you’ll understand
I want to be your island man
And the words are in this song that I relate

You sure have lots of style
And every time I’m on the isle
My heart breaks out in song
I like the way you smile
Just give it a little while
I’ll be your island man before too long

I hope you’ll understand
I want to be your island man
And the words are in this song that I relate

You sure have lots of style
And every time I’m on the isle
My heart breaks out in song
I like the way you smile
Just give it a little while
I’ll be your island man before too long



What Do You Find (Larry W. Jones 12/19/2003) (song#2382)

What do you find in paradise
A dream that can last forever
One that will end, no never
I found a love to call my own
I found a love to call my own

What do you find at a luau show
A hula dance that will please your senses
Romance that wrecks your heart’s defences
I found a love to call my own
I found a love to call my own

Far away in Maui’s old Hana bay
I met a dream that really did come true
She’s the reason why I’m there today
I found a love in Hawaii blue

What do you find in paradise
A love you really can believe in
One that was made in heaven
I found a love to call my own
I found a love to call my own

Let me tell you what it’s all about
It’s something you want to shout about
On a crowed island there’s only two
Two hearts that know when love is true

What do you find in paradise
A dream that can last forever
One that will end, no never
I found a love to call my own
I found a love to call my own



An Island Somewhere (Larry W. Jones 12/19/2003) (song#2383)

 

There’s an island somewhere
With shores of golden sand
And tall palms swaying by the bay
Come stroll with me hand in hand
On a balmy summer day
For I know I love you true
And I’ll never find another dream as you

An isle of love is made for someone
Like you and me in love today
And we’ll find love in the sunshine
Each and every day
We’ll stroll together the island over
And dream a dream or two
But I’ll never find another dream as you

It’s far across the ocean
Where the tradewinds gently blow
Love as deep as my devotion
Says it’s time that we should go

I have no gold or silver
But I have heard the islands call
Come stroll with me forever
On golden sand as moonlight falls
And I’ll prove my love to you, dear
That it’s a love so true
For I’ll never find another dream as you

And I’ll prove my love to you, dear
That it’s a love so true
For I’ll never find another dream as you
I’ll never find another dream as you



Romance Begins Again (Larry W. Jones 12/19/2003) (song#2384)

 

Here on the isle
You won’t see me smile
It wouldn’t be worthwhile
To laugh when I’m feeling blue
Tears would flow in paradise
Tradewinds would hear my cries
Since our romance is through

Here on the isle
My heart will never love again
For love could not begin
With someone new
Before a dream could start
I must know within my heart
That romance begins again with you

Tears would flow in paradise
Tradewinds would hear my cries
Since our romance is through

Here on the isle
My heart will never love again
For love could not begin
With someone new
Before a dream could start
I must know within my heart
That romance begins again with you



A Heart In Love (Larry W. Jones 12/20/2003) (song#2385)

 

A heart in love is a dream
That someday may come true
But it’s more than just a dream
When one finds a dream like you

But even now I can’t stop dreaming
Sometimes I wonder if it’s true
That the moonlight keeps on beaming
Beams of love for me and you

An island doesn’t question the ocean
As to why it’s called a paradise
And it’s no question that my devotion
You can see here in my eyes

Of this dream I’m just as sure
Secure in the love I feel
A heart in love has found a cure
In this dream that I know is real

Of this dream I’m just as sure
Secure in the love I feel
A heart in love has found a cure
In this dream that I know is real



A New Island Song (Larry W. Jones 12/20/2003) (song#2386)

If you’re out of love and feeling down
Stroll on down to old Lahaina town
You don’t have to keep your dreams all blue
I’ll play a new island song for you

Don’t be afraid to stroll on down
There’s more like you if you look around
Lonely hearts need a song to soothe
I’ll play a new island song for you

I don’t have a band in the island sand
All I’ve got is my guitar kiho’alu
You can soothe the heart of a lonely man
I’ll play a new island song for me and you

If you’re out of love and feeling down
Stroll on down to old Lahaina town

I don’t have a band in the island sand
All I’ve got is my guitar kiho’alu
You can soothe the heart of a lonely man
I’ll play a new island song for me and you



I’ll Remember June (Larry W. Jones 12/20/2003) (song#2387)

 

This island summer will merge into autumn
Tradewinds will sigh when we say goodbye
Aloha ‘oe will mean that we must part
But I’ll remember June with you in my heart

I’ll try to be content when autumn comes
You arms, your lips, your charms were all so new
I’ll try to not resent the tears that come
When I remember June in paradise with you
I’ll remember June in paradise with you

The tropic sun will set on the horizon
Like the glowing embers of our love
Memories of you will then emblazon
Dreams of June and you and stars above

The tropic sun will set on the horizon
Like the glowing embers of our love

I’ll try to be content when autumn comes
You arms, your lips, your charms were all so new
I’ll try to not resent the tears that come
When I remember June in paradise with you
I’ll remember June in paradise with you



Will You Remember Me (Larry W. Jones 12/20/2003) (song#2388)

 

Will you remember me
And the summer wind that played our song
Will you be lonely, for me only
Will you remember me

Will you remember me
When we strolled in the sand by the sea
The island songs, the luau throngs
As days go on, will you remember me

To your charms someday I’ll return
To your island in the sea
Til then my heart will burn
Like the stars at night so brilliantly

Aloha ‘oe until we meet again
When the islands call, I’ll dream
A stroll down mem’ry lane to you
Will you remember me

When the islands call, I’ll dream
A stroll down mem’ry lane to you
Will you remember me



Kaelani (Larry W. Jones 12/20/2003) (song#2389)

 

You and I will return, Kaelani
Across the seas blue and wide
To the isle of your heart, Kaelani
Since you’ve been faithfully by my side
The blush has gone from your face
It’s something you just can’t hide
Songs you used to sing are now replaced
By tears you shed for isles of paradise

Oh, you and I will return, Kaelani
To where rainbows shine through the rain
Where the air is fresh and clean, Kaelani
We’ll return to your isle again

Your love for me, Kaelani, dear
Is from your heart I know, and true
You have always brought to my life cheer
And my life would be nothing without you
Smiles that used to be in your eyes
Seem to be miles away from you now
And dreams we both have of paradise
Have faded with the times somehow

To that dear isle across the sea
Kaelani, you and I will return
To feel ohana love from family
And hearts that for you still yearn
We’ll laugh again at the luau feast
At your folk’s cottage by the bay
And at last your joy will be released
When we stroll there together another day

Oh, you and I will return, Kaelani
To where rainbows shine through the rain
Where the air is fresh and clean, Kaelani
We’ll return to your isle again



My Tree To Lean On (Larry W. Jones 12/20/2003) (song#2390)

The whole isle knows I love you
By my flower that’s in your hair
And whenever I need your love
You have so much more to share

You’ve been my tree to lean on
By the sea, my star at night
And when you stroll beside me
The whole island feels so right

Softer than the moonlight shining
Truer than a heartfelt dream
You’ve been the silver lining
Behind every cloud I’ve seen

I have every reason to love you
Words could never pay its due
I’ll tell the isle that why I smile
Is because, Aloha, I love you

Softer than the moonlight shining
Truer than a heartfelt dream
You’ve been the silver lining
Behind every cloud I’ve seen

I have every reason to love you
Words could never pay its due
I’ll tell the isle that why I smile
Is because, Aloha, I love you



Oinker For Your Love (Larry W. Jones 12/20/2003) (song#2391)

 

Well, I’m a kalua piggy for you darlin’
A real oinker for your love
I’m a kalua piggy for you darlin’
A real oinker for your love

When I see you at the luau Friday night
You do the hula and I’ll do a jig
I’m a kalua piggy for you darlin’
A real oinker for your love

One kalua piggy went to Frisco
One piggy went to Ire-land
This kalua piggy’s feelin’ frisky
I’m a real oinker for your hand

Cause I’m a kalua piggy for you darlin’
A real oinker for your love
When I take a kalua piggy nappy
You’re the only one I’m oinking of

One kalua piggy ate luau poi
One piggy ate his rice with joy
This piggy’s gonna jump and shout
When I place a kiss on your sweet snout

Cause I’m a kalua piggy for you darlin’
A real oinker for your love
When I take a kalua piggy nappy
You’re the only one I’m oinking of



I Changed Everything (Larry W. Jones 12/20/2003) (song#2392)

 

Well, I changed everything
That held a memory of you
I started with the walls
Took down the pictures, big and small

I painted all the chairs pale blue
Took down the curtains and burned ’em too
Yeah, I changed everything
Except the memory of you

The bamboo shades that made a set
Your old surfboard when we first met
The ukulele and the clarinet
Yeah, I rearranged everything
Except the memory of you

I took the tropic rug off the floor
The topic doesn’t seem right anymore
The kona coffee mug is broke and doesn’t pour
Just like my heart and everything
But I don’t think I’ve changed a thing

Well, I changed everything
That held a memory of you
I painted all the chairs pale blue
Took down the curtains and burned ’em too
Yeah, I changed everything
Except the memory of you



The Old Isle Home (Larry W. Jones 12/21/2003) (song#2393)

 

Back on the isle of my childhood
In the evening when the sun’s no more
I listened to guitars made of koa wood
My daddy played kiho’alu by the shore

I returned to the old home isle
Where tradewinds blow in a tropic zone
But no one was waiting with a smile
Nobody lives in the old isle home

All too soon, childhood was over
When I left my old isle home
I went back searching for my childhood
All I found was my childhood island home

I returned to the old home isle
Where tradewinds blow in a tropic zone
But no one was waiting with a smile
Nobody lives in the old isle home

Over on the shores of old Hawaii
Stands a cottage full of memories
I found the old cottage by the sea
But I couldn’t find the old childhood in me

I returned to the old home isle
Where tradewinds blow in a tropic zone
But no one was waiting with a smile
Nobody lives in the old isle home
Nobody lives in the old isle home



It’s Hawaii Again (Larry W. Jones 12/21/2003) (song#2394)

 

Tropical sun and shadows
Rainbows through the rain
Gold are the moonbeams
It’s Hawaii again

Leis of fragrant flowers
Perfume from the same
Red are island sunsets
No two are ‘ere the same

Mountains and valleys
Skies of bright blue
Tall palm trees swaying
As tradewinds breeze through

Fish and poi at the luau
Hula dancing wahinis too
It’s paradise I’m seeing now
It’s Hawaii again

Mountains and valleys
Skies of bright blue
Tall palm trees swaying
As tradewinds breeze through

Fish and poi at the luau
Hula dancing wahinis too
It’s paradise I’m seeing now
It’s Hawaii again



Hawaiian Sweet Rolls (Larry W. Jones 12/21/2003) (song#2395)

 

In a little Kamehameha school
Down by the peaceful sea
They paid no attention to the rules
Their little romance was plain to see

She was a cute little brown eyed rose
And he had puppy love in his eyes
The teacher pretended not to know
In the little school house in paradise

They shared Hawaiian sweet rolls every day
Down by the peaceful bay
Now they’re twenty some years old
Sharing Hawaiian sweet rolls to this day

She was a cute little brown eyed rose
And he had puppy love in his eyes
Now they’re married and so it goes
Sending off children in paradise
To a little Kamehameha school
Down by the peaceful sea



On Old Maui Isle (Larry W. Jones 12/21/2003) (song#2396)

 

On old Maui beside the sea
She happened to be strolling next to me
On old Maui a time of bliss
When she surrendered to my kiss

There ‘neath the moon I saw starlight in her eyes
There ‘neath the moon I found a dream in paradise
All summer long we sang island songs
Songs of island love

But then one day my love was gone
My dream faded like the dew at dawn
Now I sit alone and cry, please return to me
On old Maui isle beside the sea

There ‘neath the moon I saw starlight in her eyes
There ‘neath the moon I found a dream in paradise
All summer long we sang island songs
Songs of island love

But then one day my love was gone
My dream faded like the dew at dawn
Now I sit alone and cry, please return to me
On old Maui isle beside the sea



A Swaying Palm Tree (Larry W. Jones 12/21/2003) (song#2397)

 

In the shade of a swaying palm tree
On the shore by the bay and the sea
Birds of paradise, songs oh, so nice
Sang a song of love for you and me

I could hear the tradewinds whisper
Through the trees as you said to me
Here in Hawaii blue
I want to be your dream come true

That’s what you said there to me
In the shade of a swaying palm tree

I could hear the tradewinds whisper
Through the trees as you said to me
Here in Hawaii blue
I want to be your dream come true

I want to be your dream come true
That’s what you said there to me
In the shade of a swaying palm tree



Tropic Twilight (Larry W. Jones 12/21/2003) (song#2398)

 

In the hour of the tropic twilight
As I stroll in the sand feeling blue
And as the moon begins to shine its light
Soon all my dreams turn to you

In the hour of the tropic twilight
Before the island begins to slumber
Questions I ask myself without number
But they all ask the same thing tonight

Will you be my island love
The one I’m dreaming of
Will you hear my earnest plea
To be the only girl for me

Or will this dream I have of you
Fade away and out of sight
As I stroll in the sand feeling blue
In the hour of the tropic twilight

Will you be my island love
The one I’m dreaming of
Will you hear my earnest plea
To be the only girl for me

Or will this dream I have of you
Fade away and out of sight
As I stroll in the sand feeling blue
In the hour of the tropic twilight



Hana Bay And Tradewinds (Larry W. Jones 12/21/2003) (song#2399)

 

Tradewinds are oh, so gentle
As is my love for you
When we stroll the sands together
My dreams come true
Hana bay is calling from Hawaii blue
For my return to tradewinds, Hana bay, and you

Hana bay and tradewinds call for my return
Hana bay and tradewinds, how my heart yearns
Tradewinds are oh, so gentle, as is my love for you
Hana bay and tradewinds, Hana bay and you

On Maui isle I found my true love
An island rose oh, so fair
Tradewinds bring such sweet mem’ries
That still are waiting there
Hana bay is calling from Hawaii blue
For my return to tradewinds, Hana bay, and you

Hana bay and tradewinds call for my return
Hana bay and tradewinds, how my heart yearns
Tradewinds are oh, so gentle, as is my love for you
Hana bay and tradewinds, Hana bay and you



Twenty Four Hundred (Larry W. Jones 12/21/2003) (song#2400)

Twenty four hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Twenty four hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Twenty four 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
Twenty four 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
Twenty four hundred fathoms down lives cousin Davy Jones
Says I’ve got more songs to write about these tropic zones

Twenty four hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Twenty four hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Twenty four hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun
Twenty four hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun
