Pili Mai Kaua Mau Loa (Larry W. Jones 12/21/2003) (song#2401)

When I think of my island sweetheart
Pili mai kaua mau loa
We will be together forever
Where the soft tradewinds blow

Nani pua lehua of the highlands
Such a beautiful blossom so rare
We will be together forever
Where island mountains meet the air

He pua wehiwa ku’u ipo
You are my choice blossom, sweetheart
Pili mai kaua mau loa
We will be together forever
Ku’u pua lehua, blossom of island art

Hele mai, hele mai ku’u lehua
Come to me my lehua flower
Pili mai kaua mau loa
Warmed by love’s gentle showers

Ha`ina mai ka puana la
Let the refrain be told
Of nani pua lehua of the highlands
Pili mai kaua mau loa
We will be together forever



A Little Island Town (Larry W. Jones 12/21/2003) (song#2402)

In a little island town
I remember a night like this
In a little island town
We shared our first kiss

Moonbeams were streaming down
On a night just like this
We spoke of a wedding gown
And we sealed it with a kiss

Many nights have come and gone
That little town and I are far apart
I wonder if she’s all alone
She’s the only love still in my heart

In a little island town
I remember a night like this
We made a vow I can’t let down
And we sealed it with a kiss

Many nights have come and gone
That little town and I are far apart
I wonder if she’s all alone
She’s the only love still in my heart



On My Isle (Larry W. Jones 12/21/2003) (song#2403)

I wish I had an island in the stream
Where I could bury all my dreams
On my isle
On my isle

On my island I would bury all my fears
Do away with all my tears
On my isle
On my isle

I would dream some new dreams
That really would come true
I wouldn’t have to fear tears anymore
Somewhere in the stream on my island shore

Now I’m still here alone
So I’ll pretend to be at home
On my isle
On my isle

I would dream some new dreams
That really would come true
I wouldn’t have to fear tears anymore
Somewhere in the stream on my island shore

Now I’m still here alone
So I’ll pretend to be at home
On my isle
On my isle



Endless As The Ocean (Larry W. Jones 12/22/2003) (song#2404)

Once there was an island brave named Keawe
Who fell in love with Moanalani
Their vows of love would last forever
And for their wedding they made all endeavor

Keawe gave to Moanalani a royal flower lei
And she wore it on their wedding day
The island drums beat loud and strong
And Keawe sang to her this wedding song

E ke Aloha Moanalani, ku’u ipo
Forever to you is my devotion
E ke Aloha Moanalani, ku’u ipo
Our love is as endless as the ocean
Forever will be our love

They left the flame of the luau fire
To another island Keawe paddled with desire
But then the wind and rain flooded down
Lost in the storm, their isle could not be found

They never made it to their isle of paradise
And their dreams of island love met with demise
Folks say that when the tide the full moon brings
Listen carefully and you can hear Keawe sing

E ke Aloha Moanalani, ku’u ipo
Forever to you is my devotion
E ke Aloha Moanalani, ku’u ipo
Our love is as endless as the ocean
Forever will be our love



Last Ocean Fling (Larry W. Jones 12/22/2003) (song#2405)

I was a sailor when I was born
And I was born to see her run before the wind
Billowed are the sails, stretched and surely worn
I wonder when I’ll see my love again

But when that old ship’s bell there rings
I’ll know her island has been seen
And as I stand before the mast
I swear this will be my last ocean fling

I want to stroll with her again
On the firmness of that island sand
I was a sailor when I was born
Five times I’ve been around the horn
But now I’m a lonely sailor man
And this flower lei my love will adorn

But when that old ship’s bell there rings
I’ll know her island has been seen
And as I stand before the mast
I swear this will be my last ocean fling

I was a sailor when I was born
Five times I’ve been around the horn
But now I’m a lonely sailor man
And this flower lei my love will adorn



Dreams Tossed Away (Larry W. Jones 12/22/2003) (song#2406)

Inevitable are my tears
Not acceptable here in disguise
Apprehensible are all my fears
As for you my heart still cries
Attainable love has been lost
A singable song in reprise
Of dreams that have been tossed away
Like a beautiful bird of paradise

You’re back on the isle again
I hear the strings of sweet violins
But I know I’m just dreaming
Of a lonesome old love song
Your charms aren’t for real
Your arms are here to steal
This same old broken heart
With no sense of right or wrong

Inevitable are my tears
Not acceptable here in disguise
Apprehensible are all my fears
As for you my heart still cries
Attainable love has been lost
A singable song in reprise
Of dreams that have been tossed away
Like a beautiful bird of paradise
Like a beautiful bird of paradise



No Shoes (Larry W. Jones 12/22/2003) (song#2407)

Well, I thought love was really over
I thought I was at the end of the line
But now I sing in fields of clover
With your sweet love that now is mine

Well, I thought you were really leaving
With a part of this heart inside of me
But now I won’t be grieving
With your sweet love here by the sea

I used to wonder who’s in my shoes
Before you came and rescued me
Now we’ll stroll the sand with no shoes
Happy as the tropic island breeze

Well, I thought you were really leaving
With a part of this heart inside of me
But now I won’t be grieving
With your sweet love here by the sea

I used to wonder who’s in my shoes
Before you came and rescued me
Now we’ll stroll the sand with no shoes
Happy as the tropic island breeze



Short Term Mem’ry (Larry W. Jones 12/22/2003) (song#2408)

Well, I’ve got a real good mem’ry
Too bad it’s kinda short
Yeah, I’ve got a real good mem’ry
Too bad it’s kinda short

I remember you said you’d love me
On the isle where breezes blow
I remember you said you’d love me
Seems like a kinda short while ago

You would be my one and only
That’s what you said to me
Now I’m the one and lonely
Strolling here by the sea

I’ve got a short term mem’ry
Of dreams that won’t come true
I must affirm that you’re now free
Guess I just had a short term view

Well, I’ve got a real good mem’ry
Too bad it’s kinda short
Yeah, I’ve got a real good mem’ry
Too bad it’s kinda short

You would be my one and only
That’s what you said to me
Now I’m the one and lonely
Strolling here by the sea

Yeah, I’ve got a real good mem’ry
Of a short term love and you



Chasing Horizons (Larry W. Jones 12/22/2003) (song#2409)

I still hear those sweet Maui chimes
Played for the rose of mine, although hazy
I sailed from her shore to far away climes
Chasing horizons to who knows just where
Lord, I must have been crazy
Now where is my true love, is she still there
Does she think of me, does she still care

I hear tradewinds callin’, must be her voice
If I have to go crawlin’, it’s the best choice
I hear island music, must be my brain
No way to excuse it, my heart feels the pain
I see her face in the moonlight of southern seas
Across the equator I hope she’s waiting for me
Chasing horizons toward swaying palm trees

I go through my mem’ry, like ships through the sea
Slowly and surely, her face slips back to me
She’s a beautiful woman, a sweet dream come true
I must find her island, across horizons of blue
She gave me her heart, and I broke it in two
But right from the start, I broke my heart too
Chasing horizons and going nowhere I knew

Chasing horizons to a love I once knew



To The Island Of Dreams (Larrt W. Jones 12/22/2003) (song#2410)

We were walking the street
Wishing we were strolling the beach
We saw the big crowed places
Oceans of blank staring faces
And our thoughts strayed to embraces
Over the ocean to the island of dreams

Up in the sky we see a bird heading west
Free of the streets, surely he’s blessed
To be able to fly would be so supreme
Over the ocean to the island of dreams

Again our thoughts wandered
With deep emotion to irrestible schemes
Of how we ought to just wander
Over the ocean to the island of dreams

Up in the sky we see a bird heading west
Free of the streets, surely he’s blessed
To be able to fly would be so supreme
Over the ocean to the island of dreams

Again our thoughts wandered
With deep emotion to irrestible schemes
Of how we ought to just wander
Over the ocean to the island of dreams
Over the ocean to the island of dreams



Cherry Blossom Time (Larry W. Jones 12/22/2003) (song#2411)

‘Twas on the isle of Japan that I found her
A geisha girl with a face lovely sweet
Cherry blossoms were blooming around her
A beautiful kimono flowing down to her feet

She was a lovely Japanese rose of the dawn
But somehow I knew she wasn’t meant for me
For I would be sailing at the tide of the morn
Still my heart is with cherry blossoms
And a geisha girl with a face lovely sweet

Cherry blossom time was almost over
And so was my short visit there
Lips sweet as sherry, song of canaries
As I felt the ribbons in a geisha girl’s hair

She whispered to me, can you but linger
But I kissed her hand to bid my adieu
Then I placed a sweetheart ring on her finger
And sailed away to leave a geisha girl blue

Cherry blossom time was almost over
And so was my short visit there
Lips sweet as sherry, song of canaries
As I felt the ribbons in a geisha girl’s hair

She was a lovely Japanese rose of the dawn
But somehow I knew she wasn’t meant for me
For I would be sailing at the tide of the morn
Still my heart is with cherry blossoms
And a geisha girl with a face lovely sweet



Isn’t It Enchanting (Larry W. Jones 12/22/2003) (song#2412)

I’ve never seen you, but I sure do mean to
You’re my island queen, a tropic island scene
I know the way you sway where breezes play
And I can see you there with a flower in your hair
I hope my dreams aren’t all amiss
For you’re the island girl I want to kiss
And so, with all my mind
I find
That you’re the most enchanting dream divine

Isn’t it enchanting
Moonlight in the night
Make believe just seems so right
Isn’t it enchanting

Tradewinds whisper the oldest of love words
The boldest I have heard from the isle of love
And the monkeys in the trees making monkeys out of me
Isn’t it enchanting
I have heard that the night is young and so are we
Isn’t it enchanting
Steel guitars wafting music on a night like this
While on your lips a kiss that I’m now planting
Isn’t it, isn’t it enchanting

Isn’t it enchanting
Moonlight in the night
Make believe just seems so right
Isn’t it enchanting
To be in love with a dream like you



Cool To Be Crazy (Larry W. Jones 12/22/2003) (song#2413)

I knew that you were someone special
Especially when you said that I was too
This island boy is now full of joy
At the luau eating poi with you

I think it’s cool to be crazy about you
Only a fool would think otherwise
You’re like a dream that really came true
Here in this island paradise

I think it’s cool to be crazy about you
It’s the rule when your heart is on fire
You’re my heart’s desire, my island daisy
I think it’s cool to be crazy about you

I think it’s cool to be crazy about you
It’s the rule when your heart is on fire

I knew that you were someone special
Especially when you said that I was too
This island boy is now full of joy
At the luau eating poi with you

I think it’s cool to be crazy about you
Only a fool would think otherwise
You’re like a dream that really came true
Here in this island paradise



Right (Larry W. Jones 12/22/2003) (song#2414)

Right
The time is right for a kiss
It would be right for happiness
It can’t be wrong
When it feels so right like this

Right
The time is right to just say
At this time of night by the bay
That it can’t be wrong
To fall in love here to stay

Everything’s right and nothing is wrong
You were sent here to be my love song
The night is so young and my love is so strong
You’ll wear my ring and our love will last long

Right
It’s right that I should want you so much
Bright is our future and soft to the touch
It can’t be wrong
When it’s so right that I love you so much



Warm Island Shore (Larry W. Jones 12/22/2003) (song#2415)

In my wildest dreams I go to extremes
To try to get me back to her once more
Sadly I’m dreaming, gladly I’m scheming
To return to her warm island shore

It happened in Hana where soft breezes blow
I met her on Maui and I love her so
Steel guitars and real live stars
And lips that know how to smile
My heart was scattered clear to Mars
When I had to leave her on the isle

It happened in Hana in the blink of her eyes
Some day I’m gonna return to her paradise
My broken heart longs for my ku’u ipo sweetheart
That I left on her warm island shore

It happened in Hana where soft breezes blow
I met her on Maui and I love her so
Steel guitars and real live stars
And lips that know how to smile
My heart was scattered clear to Mars
When I had to leave her on the isle

It happened in Hana in the blink of her eyes
Some day I’m gonna return to her paradise
My broken heart longs for my ku’u ipo sweetheart
That I left on her warm island shore



My Aloha Dream (Larry W. Jones 12/22/2003) (song#2416)

I see a rainbow shining on the bay
The skies are clear and blue
Soon you’ll hear a song of love today
When I say Aloha I love you

A melody that will last all day long
Let’s you and I go sailing
You can lean against the railing
While I sing you a song of love today

I’ll steer along the sandy shoreline
And you can tell me that you’ll be mine
We can both hold the wheel together
And you can tell me whether
You’ll be my Aloha dream come true

I see a rainbow shining on the bay
Soon you’ll hear a song of love today

I’ll steer along the sandy shoreline
And you can tell me that you’ll be mine
We can both hold the wheel together
And you can tell me whether
You’ll be my Aloha dream come true



Personally Blue (Larry W. Jones 12/23/2003) (song#2417)

When someone you love has come and gone
Empty arms and lonely nights will come along
And that person will be personally blue
That person is me and that someone is surely you

That person will miss you and must confess
Without you there’s no more finding happiness
A broken hearted dreamer with dreams of blue
That dreamer is me and that dream is surely you

I never understood why you strolled away
It’s beyond my comprehending
It doesn’t do me any good anyway
To respond to a night without ending

Maybe someday I will feel the pull of love
And maybe someday I will find a love that’s true
And if you wonder who it is I’m thinking of
I wonder if you know it’s you

Maybe someday I will feel the pull of love
And maybe someday I will find a love that’s true
And if you wonder who it is I’m thinking of
I wonder if you know it’s you



Island Fever (Larry W. Jones 12/23/2003) (song#2418)

My mind is swaying like a palm tree in the tradewind
My heart is flying like a bird that’s on the wing
People think I’m nuts cause it’s hard to keep it in
It feels like I’ve got island fever in the spring

My eyes are like the star in the flag of Texas
Paradise is not too far from my solar plexus
My breathing is kind of shallow and everything
It feels like I’ve got island fever in the spring

Sometimes I wonder if I should be somewhere else
This new love will have me wearing white tie and tails
I’m just an island boy with a new engagement ring
It feels like I’ve got island fever in the spring

My eyes are like the star in the flag of Texas
Paradise is not too far from my solar plexus
My mind is swaying like a palm tree in the tradewind
People think I’m nuts cause it’s hard to keep it in

I’m just an island boy with a new engagement ring
It feels like I’ve got island fever in the spring
I’m just an island boy with a new engagement ring
It feels like I’ve got island fever in the spring



Lack Of Island Love (Larry W. Jones 12/23/2003) (song#2419)

I never knew that I would miss you
Like I do
I never knew that I would feel the way
That I do
When the sun at noon is high
In the tropic sky
I know the moon at night
Won’t be a philanthropic guy
To take my blues away

It must be island love, island love
Or the lack thereof
My dreams are all reminiscent of
Lack of island love

How could it be that I couldn’t see
What to do
I know I need you here with me
Next to you
The birds up in the trees
Here in paradise
Sing of love just as they please
But their songs don’t seem
To take my blues away

It must be island love, island love
Or the lack thereof
My dreams are all reminiscent of
Lack of island love

My dreams are all reminiscent of
Lack of island love



Two Paddles To Crew (Larry W. Jones 12/23/2003) (song#2420)

One can be an island in the stream
Two can turn it into an island dream
One can yearn for a love that’s true
Two can learn how in Hawaii blue
One can go to a luau all alone
Two can share poi in a tropic zone
One can stroll alone underneath the moon
Two can reach the goal of a honeymoon

A love that’s true, baby
In Hawaii blue, baby
Is like a new canoe
One paddle won’t do, baby
Two paddles to crew, baby
To steer a love straight through, me and you

One can take a photo of Duke Kahanamoku
Two can make a show at the famous statue
One can play an ukulele and be in tune
Two can make music in the month of June

A love that’s true, baby
In Hawaii blue, baby
Is like a new canoe
One paddle won’t do, baby
Two paddles to crew, baby
To steer a love straight through, me and you

A love that’s true, baby
In Hawaii blue, baby
Is like a new canoe
One paddle won’t do, baby
Two paddles to crew, baby
To steer a love straight through, me and you



Too Sad To Sing (Larry W. Jones 12/23/2003) (song#2421)

Once upon a time
Someone wrote a song
About how once in every life
A dream would come along
That almost sounded like a song

Once upon a time
I beheld your charms
I thought you’d be my wife
And fill my empty arms
And it almost sounded like a song

The island sun was warm in December
Like it is all through the year
But the tiki torch is just a dying ember
That soon turns cold and gives no cheer

Now the song within my heart
Doesn’t mean to me a thing
It’s just a love song torn apart
That’s much too sad to sing

Now the song within my heart
Doesn’t mean to me a thing
It’s just a love song torn apart
That’s much too sad to sing

It’s much too sad to sing



Big Island (Larry W. Jones 12/27/2003) (song#2422)

Well, I learned how to cry like a weeping willow
When I returned from paradise to sleeping on my pillow
Back in Amarillo, land of the Texas armadillo
The ocean is filled with tears I shed for that girl, big island
I fear I’ll die in Amarillo, my heart already died in paradise

I met her one fine day in Hilo (Hawaii)
And I fell in love with her polynesian eyes, as I recall
Then she strolled away and somebody saw her in Honokaa
I told myself to stay but I followed anyway, big island
When you called

Then you showed me where to go, where big island breezes blow
Waiaka, up in that island mountain zone
But when I got there, she was gone, real gone
But I heard she was courtin’ in Kohala
And I knew I had to follow, so I strolled right along

By the time I reached Upolu Point
Big island, you sure know how to disappoint
You took that girl on down to Mahukona, and I’m gonna
Shed my tears back in Texas like I did here in the sea
Cause her love is for you, big island, not me

Well, I learned how to cry like a weeping willow
When I returned from paradise to sleeping on my pillow
Back in Amarillo, land of the Texas armadillo
The ocean is filled with tears I shed for that girl, big island
I fear I’ll die in Amarillo, my heart already died in paradise
Cause her love is for you, big island, not me



Even More (Larry W. Jones 12/27/2003) (song#2423)

I know now that I really know you
Tradewinds can’t blow away your smile
You never ask, but I can show you
That it’s not a task when love’s worthwhile
The islands are like a string of pearls
Surrounded by a sea of blue
That goes around an ocean, girl, of loving you

In your eyes, I find paradise reflections
In your arms, I find there are no questions
In your heart, I feel the beat of love alive
In your dreams, you say we’re safely on the shore
I know now that I can love you even more

We both know that life brings changes
Even on an isle where tradewinds blow
But time itself won’t rearrange us
When we exchange the time to make love grow
And even though the tides may turn
We know they’ll return just the same
As our love that’s anchored on the shore remains

In your eyes, I find paradise reflections
In your arms, I find there are no questions
In your heart, I feel the beating of love alive
In your dreams, you say we’re safely on the shore
I know now that I can love you even more

In your heart, I feel the beat of love alive
In your dreams, you say we’re safely on the shore
I know now that I can love you even more



In Your Island Dreams (Larry W. Jones 12/27/2003) (song#2424)

 

Once upon an isle
I remember your sweet smile
And once under island skies
I saw paradise in your eyes
I wonder if you’re still there
Under tropic moonlight beams
And I wonder if you still care
In your island dreams

Once upon an isle that I once knew
We strolled where birds of paradise flew
And we would greet each brand new day
With bare feet down by the bay
I wonder if you’re still there
Under tropic moonlight beams
And I wonder if you still care
In your island dreams

And when I hear steel guitars play
My world sounds strangely hollow
And in my mind my thoughts still stray
Back to your isle where my dreams follow
Once upon an isle

Once upon an isle that I once knew
The world and all its charms was ours
Our island love was fresh and new
Underneath a sky of shining stars
I wonder if you’re still there
Under tropic moonlight beams
And I wonder if you still care
In your island dreams

And I wonder if you still care
In your island dreams
In your island dreams



Island Summer (Larry W. Jones 12/27/2003) (song#2425)

 

Sun has arisen, shining above
Summer has started, started our love
Whispering breezes in paradise
I can see Aloha in your eyes

It’s island summer, the islands have called
It’s island summer, the start of love’s call
We strolled the sand under the moon
And now love is here, it happened so soon

The moon fades away, sunrise in the east
Love starts a new day, summer released
Bluebirds are singing, a song of love starts
Warm as island summer here in my heart

It’s island summer, the islands have called
It’s island summer, the start of love’s call
We strolled the sand under the moon
And now love is here, it happened so soon

It’s hard to believe it’s so true
An island drummer beats just for you
It’s island summer, summer of love
It’s island summer, summer of love



My Hurtin’ Heart (Larry W. Jones 12/27/2003) (song#2426)

Each night I cry myself to sleep
I count my tears instead of sheep
The island seems so empty day by day
And the dreams that we once knew
Have now all turned out so blue
And my heart still feels the hurtin’
Now that you’ve gone away

My hurtin’ heart wears an Aloha shirt in the day
But it converts to tears when moonbeams play
And my heart still feels the hurtin’
Now that you’ve gone away

Men ain’t supposed to cry in paradise
But when I see you strolling by
My hurtin’ heart breaks down anyway
And the dreams that we once knew
Have now all turned out so blue
And my heart still feels the hurtin’
Now that you’ve gone away

My hurtin’ heart wears an Aloha shirt in the day
But it converts to tears when moonbeams play
And my heart still feels the hurtin’
Now that you’ve gone away



It Keeps You Strollin’ (Larry W. Jones 12/28/2003) (song#2427)

 

Here where gentle breezes blow
Girl, I’m glad you didn’t hide
The love that’s somewhere I know
Hidden in your heart down deep inside

For now I feel your beating heart
Sounding like a brand new song
It’s time to let worry just depart
Cause island love has come along

Girl, I’m glad you didn’t hide
Your heart from me in paradise
It keeps you strollin’
When island time is rollin’ by

It keeps you strollin’
When island time is rollin’ by
Yeah, it keeps you strollin’
When island time is rollin’ by

Girl, I know how you feel
Cause I once was lonely too
I thought my heart would never heal
Now I can’t hide my love for you

Girl, I’m glad you didn’t hide
Your heart from me in paradise
It keeps you strollin’
When island time is rollin’ by
Yeah, it keeps you strollin’
When island time is rollin’ by



A Tropic Night (Larry W. Jones 12/28/2003) (song#2428)

 

Well, it’s a tropic night for strollin’ along
And a tropic night for singin’ a song
Yeah, it’s a tropic night, romance is born
A tropic night from twilight until the morn

Well, it’s a tropic night in Hawaii blue
A tropic night for wearin’ no shoes
Waikiki beach is just waitin’ for you
Cause it’s a tropic night from twilight until the morn

Well, I told the moon, come on soon
Rise and shine your lovebeams on the bay
Mister moon, get a-goin’, start a-glowin’
Cause there’s lots of love that needs a-showin’
And it’s a tropic night from twilight til day

Cause it’s a tropic night, ain’t got no chills
And it’s a tropic night for makin’ thrills
So, take a stroll and roll away your ills
Cause it’s a tropic night from twilight until the morn

Well, I told the moon, come on soon
Rise and shine your lovebeams on the bay
Mister moon, get a-goin’, start a-glowin’
Cause there’s lots of love that needs a-showin’
And it’s a tropic night from twilight til day

So, take a stroll and roll away your ills
Cause it’s a tropic night from twilight until the morn



Blue Hawaiian Day (Larry W. Jones 12/28/2003) (song#2429)

It’s a blue Hawaiian day
No worries for me, I threw ’em away
And island born Hawaiian would say
It’s a blue Hawaiian day

It’s a blue Hawaiian sky
No tears for me, it’s paradise
Makes me want to sing, be a king
It’s a blue Hawaiian day

I see people strolling everywhere
A day for suntans on tourists fair
Wahinis with flowers in their hair
Umbrellas, beaches and easy chairs

It’s a blue Hawaiian day
My temperature too is ready to climb
And my heart ain’t beatin’ quite in time
It must be love, that’s all I say
It’s a blue Hawaiian day

I see people strolling everywhere
A day for suntans on tourists fair
Wahinis with flowers in their hair
Umbrellas, beaches and easy chairs

My temperature too is ready to climb
And my heart ain’t beatin’ quite in time
It must be love, that’s all I say
It’s a blue Hawaiian day



A Small Island World (Larry W. Jones 12/28/2003) (song#2430)

 

It’s a small island of laughter
A small island with no tears
It’s a small island with no hereafter
A place that has no fears

A little place where songs are in the air
And a view of the future with no despair
It’s a small island made for love
That the whole big world can share

It’s a small island with a great big moon
And a big red sun when the day is done
Where a little smile and an island tune
Will make you a friend with everyone

Island life as steady as the tide
Hearts filled with love that’s open wide
It’s a small island made for love
That the whole big world can share

It’s a small island world
It’s a small island world
It’s a small island world
That the whole big world can share



Love’s Not A Game (Larry W. Jones 12/28/2003) (song#2431)

There’s no reason for tears to fall
After all, love’s not a game
Island love can start a flame
That comes down from above

Words of love you have for him
Will fill his heart to the brim
And the dreams you’ve been dreaming of
Will come true if there’s love

Once in a while the islands call
And you can believe it’s not a game
The moon will come and bring the tide
The tide of love, a sweet refrain

And when he kisses your lips
You’ll fly to the moon in silver ships
A little stroll down by the bay
And he’ll carry your heart away

Once in a while the islands call
And you can believe it’s not a game
The moon will come and bring the tide
The tide of love, a sweet refrain

And when he kisses your lips
You’ll fly to the moon in silver ships
A little stroll down by the bay
And he’ll carry your heart away



Southern Island Custom (Larry W. Jones 12/28/2003) (song#2432)

 

It’s a southern island custom
If you’re strolling down the beach
To bid everyone ‘ia orana ‘oe
Which I think you’ll find is neat

It’s a southern island custom
To exchange a fragrant lei
The tiare is always in the bloom
Where Tahitian palm trees sway

If a vahini meets a tane
As they did in days of old
Sometimes the vahini and the tane
Find a love that’s made of gold

And if they stroll together
On a southern island, noon and night
It’s a southern island custom
That soon love is a tiki torch light

It’s a southern island custom
To exchange a fragrant lei
The tiare is always in the bloom
Where Tahitian palm trees sway

And if they stroll together
On a southern island, noon and night
It’s a southern island custom
That soon love is a tiki torch light



It’s Mysterious (Larry W. Jones 12/28/2003) (song#2433)

You smile and violins begin
You speak Hawaiian, I break out my dictionary again
It’s mysterious
The moon in paradise
Gives up all its beams, I see them in your eyes
It’s mysterious

Without a star by which to steer
It’s mysterious just how I found you here

When we’re strolling hand in hand
The isle is so much more than beach and sand
It’s mysterious
It’s hard to explain why I hear the same refrain
When no island band is playing
It’s mysterious

The reason why they’re all so true
Is not just dreams in Hawaii blue
It’s mysterious
But it’s not a mystery why I love you

When we’re strolling hand in hand
The isle is so much more than beach and sand
It’s mysterious
It’s hard to explain why I hear the same refrain
When no island band is playing
It’s mysterious

The reason why they’re all so true
Is not just dreams in Hawaii blue
It’s mysterious
But it’s not a mystery why I love you



I Will Always Believe (Larry W. Jones 12/28/2003) (song#2434)

 

We go strolling everywhere
And I know you really care
Sometimes it’s hard to believe
That such a dream I would receive

I place a flower in your hair
A symbol of my love to wear
Here in Hawaii blue
My dreams are coming true
Soon everyone will know
Our love is not just show
As long as there will be
Your love right here with me
I will always believe

Here in Hawaii blue
My dreams are coming true
Maui chimes I now hear ring
My heart begins to sing
Every time we take a stroll
Down where the breakers roll
As long as there will be
Your love right here with me
I will always believe

I place a flower in your hair
A symbol of my love to wear
Here in Hawaii blue
My dreams are coming true
Soon everyone will know
Our love is not just show
As long as there will be
Your love right here with me
I will always believe



A Pretty Island World (Larry W. Jones 12/28/2003) (song#2435)

 

It’s a pretty island world
The tropic sun is out today
Gentle waves are rolled and curled
Palm trees do their hula sway

It’s a pretty island world
Especially since you’re mine
And you’re my dream come true
A love so fresh and new

And even though the rain may fall
Rainbows shine through when islands call
And when I look at you
I see the sun there too

It’s a pretty island world
The tropic sun is out today
Gentle waves are rolled and curled
Palm trees do their hula sway

And even though the rain may fall
Rainbows shine through when islands call
And when I look at you
I see the sun there too

It’s a pretty island world today



Hele Mai (Larry W. Jones 12/28/2003) (song#2436)

 

I guess you know I love you
And I sure hope you love me too
Let’s go and take a stroll together
Like island folks supposed to do
I’ll get a ring and we’ll get married
We’ll take our time and not be harried
Hele mai, come to me, ku’u ipo, E ke Aloha

I’ll be your island man
You’ll be my island girl
We’ll stroll around old Lahaina town
Then we’ll go around the world
And even if it rains
We’ll sing a sweet refrain
Hele mai, come to me, ku’u ipo, E ke Aloha

I don’t care what people say
Love like ours won’t drift away
Together you and I will stay
In our little cottage by the bay
And if you’re ever feeling blue
You know I’ll be here for you
Hele mai, come to me, ku’u ipo, E ke Aloha

I guess you know I love you
And I sure hope you love me too
Let’s go and take a stroll together
Like island folks supposed to do
I’ll get a ring and we’ll get married
We’ll take our time and not be harried
Hele mai, come to me, ku’u ipo, E ke Aloha

We’ll stroll around old Lahaina town
Then we’ll go around the world
And even if it rains
We’ll sing a sweet refrain
Hele mai, come to me, ku’u ipo, E ke Aloha



Pineapple Crush (Larry W. Jones 12/28/2003) (song#2437)

Well, I had a lot of Leilanis and Moanas
Trying to capture me
But you had more than charms
You set off my fire alarms
Here by the sea

I’m your big, strong, handsome kahuna
Here where tradewinds blow
We’ll go canoeing on the big laguna
Over to the luau show

It’s not that you’re just nice
You’re right at home in paradise
I knew my dream was coming true
As soon as you strolled into view

I’ve got a pineapple crush
And it’s on you, sweetie pie
I know I fell with such a rush
But my heart’s not asking why

Now take a look over there
My little cottage we could share
I’ll get a wedding ring in a rush
I’ve got a pineapple crush
And it’s on you, sweetie pie
But my heart’s not asking why
I’ve got a pineapple crush on you



Sand In My Eyes (Larry W. Jones 12/29/2003) (song#2438)

I’ve got sand in my eyes from fallin’ on my face
In this place they call paradise
And this sand in my eyes, it makes me cry
It’s so gritty to my surprise
Since you said Aloha ‘oe, you and I are through
So, if I get sand in my pituitary gland
It will stunt my growth, you understand
I’ve got sand in my eyes from fallin’ on my face
In this place they call paradise

I’ve got sand in my eyes from fallin’ on my face
In this place they call paradise
And this sand in my eyes, feels like the size
Of bolders and pizza pies
Since you said Aloha ‘oe, you and I are through
So, if I get buried by the grooming tractor
I’ll just be a blue flower blooming hereafter
I’ve got sand in my eyes from fallin’ on my face
In this place they call paradise

I’ve got sand in my eyes from fallin’ on my face
In this place they call paradise
And this sand in my eyes, to my demise
Shows how blind I was to your lies
Since you said Aloha ‘oe, you and I are through
You lied when you said I was your only island man
Now I know how it feels to be a lonely sandy man
I’ve got sand in my eyes from fallin’ on my face
In this place they call paradise



Paralevel To The Road (Larry W. Jones 12/29/2003) (song#2439)

Ain’t got no trouble in paradise
That ain’t my mode
Never apprehensive or pensive
I just carry my load

I pick ’em up
And I put ’em down
And here’s my code
I mind my own business
And I keep my feet
Paralevel to the road

If anything gets in my way
I just toss it in the bay
Ain’t no use in tryin’ to climb
A mountain made of trouble anyway

I pick ’em up
And I put ’em down
And here’s my code
I mind my own business
And I keep my feet
Paralevel to the road

They say life is a short journey
You only go around once
But I don’t need no smart attorney
And I don’t live with arrogance
I plan to live forever in paradise on earth
Here in Hawaii for all that life is worth

Ain’t got no trouble in paradise
That ain’t my mode
Never apprehensive or pensive
I just carry my load

I pick ’em up
And I put ’em down
And here’s my code
I mind my own business
And I keep my feet
Paralevel to the road



Fortunate Island Man (Larry W. Jones 12/29/2003) (song#2440)

I feel better than a millionaire
Ain’t got no money
But I’ve got a future without care
I’m just a fortunate island man
The tropic sun comes every morning
Wakes my peaceful sleep with yawning
And my island woman is lying there
I’m just a fortunate island man

Well, I’m not dressed like a millionaire
Ain’t got no fancy yacht
But I’ve got an outrigger that’s fair
I’m just a fortunate island man
The tropic sun comes every morning
Wakes my peaceful sleep with yawning
And my island woman is lying there
I’m just a fortunate island man

That tropic sun is shining on the bay
Looks like a million diamonds every day

Ain’t got no checkbook like a millionaire
No visa card or american express
Ain’t got no stress or care
I’m just a fortunate island man
The tropic sun comes every morning
Wakes my peaceful sleep with yawning
And my island woman is lying there
I’m just a fortunate island man

The tropic sun comes every morning
Wakes my peaceful sleep with yawning
And my island woman is lying there
I’m just a fortunate island man



Island On A String (Larry W. Jones 12/29/2003) (song#2441)

I’ve got the island on a string
Attached to a moon beam
And I’ve got them both around my finger
What an isle, what a smile
I just want to linger here in love

There’s an island song I’m gonna sing
That will make the moon gleam
And when I place a ring around her finger
What an isle, what a smile
I just want to linger here in love

Island life sure is a beautiful thing
If you’re in love and hold the string
Here on the isle where breezes blow
She holds the keys to my heart, I know

Island life sure is a beautiful thing
If you’re in love and hold the string

There’s an island song I’m gonna sing
That will make the moon gleam
And when I place a ring around her finger
What an isle, what a smile
I just want to linger here in love



Another Way (Larry W. Jones 12/29/2003) (song#2442)

I love you, I love you, is what they always say
And yet I know that there’s another way
E ke Aloha ku’u ipo I say to you
It’s another way to say I love you too

A lot more could be read
Between the lines, but instead
The only words I need
Are the ones that’s written on my heart
E ke Aloha ku’u ipo
It’s another way to say I love you too
They were there right from the start

There is another way to say I love you
E ke Aloha ku’u ipo I say to you
It’s another way to say I love you too

A lot more could be read
Between the lines, but instead
The only words I need
Are the ones that’s written on my heart
E ke Aloha ku’u ipo
It’s another way to say I love you too
They were there right from the start



So Close To You (Larry W. Jones 12/29/2003) (song#2443)

 

Love I found here by the sea
A dream that really came to be
Blue Hawaii held the key
My heart is yours, my Leilani
So close to you and all your charms
Your love has filled my empty arms

In dreams at night I see your face
No other love could take your place
When I awake to face each dawn
Visions of beauty have all been drawn
So close to you and all your charms
Your love has filled my empty arms

My heart feels happy all the time
Knowing that you are really mine
Dreams that come in peaceful sleep
Of vows we’ve made that we will keep
So close to you and all your charms
Your love has filled my empty arms



Just Strolling In The Sand (Larry W. Jones 12/29/2003) (song#2444)

Just strolling in the sand
Feeling like I’m deep in debt
Trying just to understand
There’s no way I can forget

Just strolling in the sand
Here in Hawaii blue
Just another lonely island man
All because of you

People stop and they wonder
What it is that bothers me
What is this dark cloud I’m under
Will I ever be set free

Just strolling in the sand
Here in Hawaii blue
Just another lonely island man
All because of you

Just strolling in the sand
Remembering when we first met
And the life that we had planned
There’s no way I can forget



Bow Legged Aka’ula (Larry W. Jones 12/30/2003) (song#2445)

She’s known as bow legged Aka’ula from Kula
She’s the hula girl from Ulupalakua
And when she sways the hula over in Kula
Palm trees all turn and wave on Maui isle

Aka’ula does the hula on the shore
Her hula dance will never be a bore
Cause her bow legs the menfolk all adore
And she sure knows how to make them smile

Aka’ula from Kula knew she was a hula queen
She thought she could be on the silver screen
So, she danced the hula on the ship Lurline
But the tourists thought they were on sea trials

She did the hula over a big beer keg
Everybody’s stomach was full of scrambled eggs
The captain said to Aka’ula, he did beg
Get off my Lurline and go back to Maui isle

So, bow legged Aka’ula from Kula
Took her beer keg back to Ulupalakua
And to this day she does the bow legged hula
Back on her Maui wowee Kula isle
Back on her Maui wowee Kula isle



On A Lazy Island (Larry W. Jones 12/30/2003) (song#2446)

On a lazy island by the sugar mill stream
A lazy, breezy island is a lover’s dream
Sitting in the shade of a tall palm tree
A lazy island, babe, is made for you and me

On a lazy island you can take your time
Wake up to the music of Maui chimes
A paradise of love with blue skies above
On a lazy island, you and me, eternally
On a lazy island with you, and me

On a lazy island we’ll be havin’ fun
A lazy, lazy island in the tropic sun
Strollin’ hand in hand in the island sand
A lazy island’s made for a babe and island man

On a lazy island we can stroll along
Wake up in the mornin’ to a bluebird’s song
In the evening we can watch the sun go down
In old Lahaina town we’ll never wear a frown
On a lazy island with you, and me



On A Cloudy Day (Larry W. Jones 12/30/2003) (song#2447)

On a cloudy day
Just let that silver lining be your treasure
On a cloudy, cloudy day
And if your sweetheart frowns
Just take that silver lining down
And make her a treasured silver lei

On a cloudy day
If your skies all threaten rain
Don’t worry, but don’t forget
A silver lining and a sweet refrain
Won’t ever cause you pain
Don’t fret and you won’t even get wet

So, let a silver lining be your treasure
On the mainland or an isle of pleasure
On a cloudy, cloudy day

Just let that silver lining be your treasure
On a cloudy, cloudy day
And if your sweetheart frowns
Just take that silver lining down
And make her a treasured silver lei

If your skies all threaten rain
Don’t worry, but don’t forget
A silver lining and a sweet refrain
Won’t ever cause you pain
Don’t fret and you won’t even get wet
On a cloudy, cloudy day



Here By The Sea (Larry W. Jones 12/30/2003) (song#2448)

I praise the day I met you
And I’ll say I won’t forget you
You are my true love, here by the sea

We’ll make the tropic sun shine
Forever say you’ll be mine
Let’s stroll together, here by the sea

I asked the moon, love
Please shine down from above
On my dream of, you by the sea

So, let me love you madly
I would never leave you sadly
I’ll love you gladly, here by the sea

I asked the moon, love
Please shine down from above
On my dream of, you by the sea

So, let me love you madly
I would never leave you sadly
I’ll love you gladly, here by the sea



May I Call You Ku’u Ipo (Larry W. Jones 12/30/2003) (song#2449)

I was dreaming of you dear, down by the bay
With you in Hawaii blue, my skies are never gray
And when the golden moonlight beams
You go strolling through my dreams
On an isle of love, just loving you

May I call you ku’u ipo, sweetheart, E ke Aloha too
I heard the tradewinds whisper that you will love me true
Let’s keep the tiki torch light glowing
Like the love that’s growing in us too
May I call you ku’u ipo, sweetheart, E ke Aloha too

You do the island up in style, by the shore
Your smile is not the only thing that I adore
Birds of paradise are singing
Songs of island love they’re bringing
You are my ku’u ipo, sweetheart, only you

May I call you ku’u ipo, sweetheart, E ke Aloha too
I heard the tradewinds whisper that you will love me true
Let’s keep the tiki torch light glowing
Like the love that’s growing in us too
May I call you ku’u ipo, sweetheart, E ke Aloha too



Happiness For Two (Larry W. Jones 12/30/2003) (song#2450)

It would make me happy to make you smile
You would never be sad here on the isle
Let me make you happy in island style

All the love here in my heart
Let me bring it near and we can start
To make us happy, happiness for two

I wouldn’t be happy without your smile
I would be sad here on the isle
If you didn’t let be make you happy in island style

All the love here in my heart
Let me bring it near and we can start
To make us happy, happiness for two

I wouldn’t be happy without your smile
I would be sad here on the isle
If you didn’t let be make you happy in island style

All the love here in my heart
Let me bring it near and we can start
To make us happy, happiness for two



Forever Dwell (Larry W. Jones 12/30/2003) (song#2451)

Don’t let me go, don’t let me go
Don’t let me go, sweetheart
May you and me, here by the sea
Forever dwell

I would not sleep, I would weep
Not for sheep, sweetheart
I love you so, where breezes blow
You can tell

Oh, how I want you, and I want, too
For you to want me too
So, just say when, you’ll be mine in
Hawaii blue

Please say you’ll choose, so I don’t loose
May you and me, here by the sea
Forever dwell

I would not sleep, I would weep
Not for sheep, sweetheart
I love you so, where breezes blow
You can tell

Oh, how I want you, and I want, too
For you to want me too
So, just say when, you’ll be mine in
Hawaii blue

Please say you’ll choose, so I don’t loose
May you and me, here by the sea
Forever dwell
Forever dwell
Forever dwell



Shore Of Your Heart (Larry W. Jones 12/30/2003) (song#2452)

If people keep on saying
Your love is just delaying
I’m here where palms are swaying
And my heart’s an open door

Let me stroll upon the shore
Let me stroll upon the shore
Let me stroll upon the shore
Of your heart

If everything is colored blue
Even all your rainbows too
Remember that it’s always you
On my mind

Let me stroll upon the shore
Let me stroll upon the shore
Let me stroll upon the shore
Of your heart, of your heart

I have the treasure map to your heart
My ship of love knows how to chart
Better than old captain Blackie Bart
To sail away with your love

If your old love let you down
Stroll down to old Lahaina town
I’ll meet you when the sun goes down
And make some vows to you

Let me stroll upon the shore
Let me stroll upon the shore
Let me stroll upon the shore
Of your heart



All For You (Larry W. Jones 12/30/2003) (song#2453)

Oh, let those tradewinds keep a-playin’
Let those steel guitars abound
Let those palm trees keep a-swayin’
When the sun gets goin’ down

Let my girl know that I love her
She’s my dream that’s comin’ true
Let there be no one above her
Let my love be all for you

Oh, let those other island girls
Do the hula they’re proud of
Let ’em know my heart’s awhirl
With the only girl I love

Tell ’em there’s no hesitatin’
No use to keep on waitin’
Here in this Hawaii blue
Let my love be all for you

Oh, let those tradewinds keep a-playin’
Let those steel guitars abound
Let those palm trees keep a-swayin’
When the sun gets goin’ down

Let my girl know that I love her
She’s my dream that’s comin’ true
Let there be no one above her
Let my love be all for you



Teardrops Now Begin (Larry W. Jones 12/30/2003) (song#2454)

I hear island guitars start to play
They sound like they did the other day
Before you strolled away
And now it’s time for me to go
Paradise has lost it’s glow
I guess it doesn’t matter anyway

So, let the teardrops now begin
I’ll just take it on the chin
If your love I still can’t win
Paradise has lost its lure
Yes, let the teardrops now begin
I’ll just take it on the chin
If your love I still can’t win
Paradise was not the cure

I see lovers strolling in moonlight
They seem aglow tonight
Their dreams have turned out right
I placed that flower in her hair
In hopes that she would care
And I wonder if it’s still there

So, let the teardrops now begin
I’ll just take it on the chin
If your love I still can’t win
Paradise has lost its lure
Yes, let the teardrops now begin
I’ll just take it on the chin
If your love I still can’t win
Paradise was not the cure



A Wonderful Bird (Larry W. Jones 12/30/2003) (song#2455)

If you feel like you’ve got a heavy load
If you feel like you walk a weary road
What you need is a brand new mode
And you can fly over troubles
Like a bird of paradise

Let the bird of paradise fly for you
Let the bird of paradise sing for you
He’s a wonderful bird
And if you never hear a happy word, he heard
Let the bird of paradise fly for you
Let the bird of paradise sing for you
Who cares if the world is blue
The bird of paradise cares for you

If you’re in a tunnel, look for the light
You will find it a welcome sight
And you’ll get through
Let the bird of paradise fly for you
Let the bird of paradise sing for you
You will find there’s a better way
On an isle of paradise come what may
Let the bird of paradise sing your blues away



Let The Hula Girl Dance (Larry W. Jones 12/31/2003) (song#2456)

Little wahini on the shore, strolling by herself
Now she’s got the curves to take a chance
Let the hula girl dance

Let the hula girl dance, let the hula girl dance
She never took a chance before
So, let her do the hula by the shore
Let her do the hula where the oceans roar

Let the hula girl dance, let the hula girl dance
She sure looks nice, she’s from paradise
Let the hula girl dance

She’s been a little wahini on the shore
Strolling by herself
Now she’s got the curves to take a chance
Let the hula girl dance

Let the hula girl through, she’s strolling on by you
Braddah, can’t you see
She wants to do the hula with me
She wants to do the hula with me

She’s been a little wahini on the shore
Strolling by herself
Now she’s got the curves to take a chance
Let the hula girl dance

Let the hula girl through, she’s strolling on by you
Braddah, can’t you see
She wants to do the hula with me
She wants to do the hula with me

Little wahini on the shore, strolling by herself
Now she’s got the curves to take a chance
Let the hula girl dance
Let the hula girl dance



Isle Of Lava (Larry W. Jones 12/31/2003) (song#2457)

Out across the ocean
There’s rainbows in paradise
So let’s have a cup of Kona java
And a piece of pineapple pie

Let’s let all our worries scurry
As when dark clouds leave the sky
And let’s have a cup of Kona java
And a piece of pineapple pie

Let a smile come to your face
File away your aches and pains
Better times can take their place
Rainbows shine right through the rains

Let’s go to the isle of lava
To give the island life a try
And let’s have a cup of Kona java
And a piece of pineapple pie

Out across the ocean
There’s rainbows in paradise
Let’s let all our worries scurry
As when dark clouds leave the sky

Let’s go to the isle of lava
To give the island life a try
And let’s have a cup of Kona java
And a piece of pineapple pie



Aloha ‘Oe Means Goodbye (Larry W. Jones 12/31/2003) (song#2458)

Aloha ‘oe means goodbye, Aloha means hello
It’s the friendly island kind of way
But something’s wrong in this tropic zone
Your love has gone away
I felt it start when we drew apart
And I knew our hearts would pay
We’ll say Aloha ‘oe instead of hello
In a friendly island kind of way

Ku’u ipo means my sweetheart, that’s you
You were an angel in my mind
We had happy times in Hawaii blue
The kind that’s hard to find
Please remember the love that we knew
And the fragrant flower lei
We’ll say Aloha ‘oe instead of hello
In a friendly island kind of way

I hope you find your happiness
And I hope you don’t stay blue
May rainbows follow you to bless
And make all your dreams come true
Remember me where tradewinds blow
And drop a line to me some day
We’ll say Aloha ‘oe instead of hello
In a friendly island kind of way

I doubt if I’ll love another, dear
For there’s no one else like you
I know there will be a lot of tears
That will keep me from a love that’s new
Your lovely smile, our favorite island song
And those luaus down by the bay
We’ll say Aloha ‘oe instead of hello
In a friendly island kind of way

Aloha ‘oe means goodbye, Aloha means hello
It’s the friendly island kind of way
But something’s wrong in this tropic zone
Your love has gone away
I felt it start when we drew apart
And I knew our hearts would pay
We’ll say Aloha ‘oe instead of hello
In a friendly island kind of way



Island Way Home (Larry W. Jones 12/31/2003) (song#2459)

We’ll take the island way home
Let’s book the island way home
And when we hit the bay, it won’t be the end
We’ll find a wonderful night and just pretend

The Straits of Magellan would be too soon
And there may be villans to take doubloons
So, we’ll set our sails by the tropic moon
And take the island way back home

We’ll take the island way
Where the palm trees sway
We’ll take the island way back home
We will set our sights
On the tropic nights
And take our time out on the foam

See the southern cross way down below
Where the horizon just appears
I was thinking if we just go slow
We could make this last a million years
Come on, I’m in the mood to roam
We’ll take the island way home
We’ll take the island way back home



Lydialani Rose (Larry W. Jones 12/31/2003) (song#2460)

Lydialani Rose, I’m on the isle again
Look at the sun up in the sky
Lydialani Rose, I’m on the isle again
And I hope your kisses aren’t too shy

Now, let me look and check the time
I hear those Maui chimes
And as a quaint suggestion
Could I paint an important question
On the whole darn tropic sky

Lydialani Rose, I’m on the isle again
Without another love to claim
Lydialani Rose, where the tradewind blows
I aim to change your name

Let me sing to you a new love song
With an old line that does just fine
Lydialani Rose, don’t take too long
To say that you’ll be mine



Like A Song (Larry W. Jones 01/04/2004) (song#2461)

An island is like a song
That we can stroll through with rhyme
It’s a place where hearts in love belong
To embrace sweet Maui chimes

Let’s learn all the Aloha lines
Of island love that’s like a song
It’s a place of yours and mine
With a pace that can’t go wrong

An island is like a song
That goes on and on forever
Rainbows shine where love is strong
Let’s go find where we belong together

An island is like a song
Where dreams are not in vain
It’s a place where hearts in love belong
Let’s learn that sweet refrain

Let’s learn all the Aloha lines
Of island love that’s like a song
It’s a place of yours and mine
With a pace that can’t go wrong

An island is like a song
That goes on and on forever
Rainbows shine where love is strong
Let’s go find where we belong together



Like A Song (Larry W. Jones 01/04/2004) (song#2461)

 

When I saw you strolling on the shore
You looked like a dream serene
I felt winds of love down on me bore
Like a hurricane unseen before

I’m caught in the eye of a storm
The look in your eyes is serene
But strong winds of love have been born
And my heart is caught in between

Your eyes are filled with beauty
It’s the calm before the storm
And my heart has answered to its duty
To meet the winds of love so warm

I’m caught in the eye of a storm
The look in your eyes is serene
But strong winds of love have been born
And my heart is caught in between

Maybe I am just a dreamer
Caught in the eye of a hurricane
If so, then you’re the dream
Which winds of love sustains

I’m caught in the eye of a storm
The look in your eyes is serene
But strong winds of love have been born
And my heart is caught in between
The eye of a storm so serene
And the winds of love

And my heart is caught in between
The eye of a storm so serene
And the winds of love



Like A Love Song (Larry W. Jones 01/04/2004) (song#2463)

Like a love song, the morning tropic sun
Comes to play upon your sleeping face
Your day time smile has just begun
On the isle with its sleepy pace

Oh, if I could only be your morning tropic sun
Like a love song that’s warm as paradise
And shines love’s light upon your eyes
Upon your face it lingers
Like a love song singer
Oh, if I could only be your morning tropic sun

How I admire the glass that your lips touch
I need your love so much
Like a love song must be how it feels
And fingertips that hold your chair and such
You have such warm appeal
Oh, if I could only make it real

Like a love song, the tropic moon
Looks in upon your drowsy sleep
Its beams of love all come to swoon
And caress your hair and cheek
Like a love song with words of love to speak
Oh, if I could only be your tropic moon

Oh, if I could only be your morning tropic sun
If I could only make it real
Your heart and mine would beat as one
With love that’s strong as steel

Oh, if I could only be your tropic moon
To look upon your drowsy sleep
Beams of love would come in June
With a wedding ring that you could keep

It would be like a love song
Like a love song
Like a love song
Like a love song



Sad Island Song (Larry W. Jones 01/04/2004) (song#2464)

 

In the tropic island morning
Is when I get this longing
For something beautiful to see
And when I see it raining
I wish that rainbows be remaining
To bestow a song of love on me

Sometimes I hear a sad island song
When I stroll all alone, all alone without you

I’ve seen a lot of island places
Seen a million tourists faces
But none as lovely as you to me
I need to be around you
Just like the day I found you
Paradise is you here by the sea

Island life goes by so quietly
Just like the way it ought to be
But my heart is quietly breaking
When I think of you and me

And when the night time comes along
It’s the right time for a sad island song
It’s the time I need to be around you
Just like the day I found you
None are as lovely as you to me
Paradise is you here by the sea

Sometimes I hear a sad island song
When I stroll all alone, all alone without you



Like Island Tuberoses (Larry W. Jones 01/05/2004) (song#2465)

Dreams are like island tuberoses
Sweet with fragrance to inspire
Bright like Aloha clothes is
And as warm as my heart on fire

Dreams come from the flames within us
Like the burning of a tiki ring
Dreams are like the stars that guide us
To islands where true love they bring

A brand new spring you brought to me
Here on this island in the sea
You are a dream, my island woman
Like sweet tuberoses grown for me

No monsoon gale or rain could stop me
From flowing to your charms
Waves of love like fire, but gentle
I feel when I am in your arms

Dreams are like island tuberoses
Growing under tropic skies so clear
Bright as the island rainbow is
Every time that you appear
Like roses, like island tuberoses



Linger In My Dreams (Larry W. Jones 01/05/2004) (song#2466)

Linger in my dreams awhile longer, darling
Be my guiding light
Love on the isle is stronger, darling
Whenever you’re in sight

Though night time is past and it’s daylight, darling
I don’t have to think about it twice
To have you linger in my dreams awhile longer, darling
On the isle, you’re paradise

When I dream of you
It can be the night time or the day
When I dream of you
The dreamin’ never goes away

Though night time is past and it’s daylight, darling
I don’t have to think about it twice
To have you linger in my dreams awhile longer, darling
On the isle, you’re paradise

When I dream of you
It can be the night time or the day
When I dream of you
The dreamin’ never goes away
Linger in my dreams
Don’t ever go away



Lips Divine (Larry W. Jones 01/05/2004) (song#2467)

When I pressed your sweet lips
My heart came to grips
With lips divine, warm as fire, I acquired
Lips divine, blessed that they’re now mine

Never more will I roam
From you, sweet island miss of mine
For I have found my home
Where I found your kiss divine

Where palm trees sway, night and day
Lips divine, hele mai, hele mai
Come to me in paradise
Lips divine, blessed that they are mine

My heart you stole from me
As you went strolling by the sea
Lips divine, wine so rare, I acquired
Lips divine, blessed that they’re now mine

(Lips divine, sweet as sherry wine)

Never more will I roam
From you, sweet island miss of mine
For I have found my home
Where I found your kiss divine

When I pressed your sweet lips
(Lips divine, sweet as sherry wine)
My heart came to grips
(Lips divine, sweet as sherry wine)
With lips divine, warm as fire, I acquired
Lips divine (lips divine)
Blessed that they’re now mine (lips divine)

Yeah, I’m blessed that they’re now mine
(Your sweet lips divine)



Wiki Wiki Hula Oni E (Larry W. Jones 01/05/2004) (song#2468)

 

A hula girl I met in Hawaii
Where breakers curl she danced for me
It’s a dance she does there by the sea
The wiki wiki hula oni E
Romance by the sea
The wiki wiki hula oni E

She does her hula like palm trees
Swaying in the tropic breeze
Her hips are like the rolling seas
The wiki wiki hula oni E
Romance by the sea
The wiki wiki hula oni E

She’s sweet as mango, dances tango too
She does all the dances, old and new
But I would rather see her do
The wiki wiki hula oni E
Romance by the sea
The wiki wiki hula oni E

The malihini maka’ika’i
Cross the great pacific sea
And her best dance they all agree
The wiki wiki hula oni E
Romance by the sea
The wiki wiki hula oni E



Love Has Power (Larry W. Jones 01/07/2003) (song#2469)

 

There’s no cause for concern, Leilani darling
Even though life’s shadows may fall
For I’ll be here at every turn, Leilani darling
To show you light when islands call

You must believe that love has power
To last as long as tradewinds blow
So, please don’t judge this love of ours
By past loves in the years ago

You must believe that love has power
And that I’ll be here for you
I’ll be a strong and lofty tower
For your sweet love to run into

On our isle is where I’ll always be
For you, my darling sweet Leilani
I once feared love the same as you
Until I found your love so true

I have found an isle of love
And the love on that isle is you
In future years I’ll remind you of
These same words again….

You must believe that love has power
And that I’ll be here for you
I’ll be a strong and lofty tower
For your sweet love to run into

You must believe that love has power
For your sweet love to run into



Tropic Star (Larry W. Jones 01/07/2004) (song#2470)

 

Our island romance is ending
And now I wonder where the love has gone
As I count all the pieces needing mending
And wonder what I might hang my dreams upon

Tropic star
Twilight is falling on the island shore
And here I stroll so all alone

Tropic star
I know you’ve heard this wish before
Oh, please bring my love back home

Let her know I need her so much
I miss her touch
I’m hanging on to the dreams I’ve known
Moonbeams on the water
Waiting by the phone
Can you help me from afar
Tropic star

Tropic star
If you’re as good as lovers say you are
Then bring my love back home to stay
Tropic star



Wild And Gentle (Larry W. Jones 01/08/2003) (song#2471)

Sweet tuberoses grow wild on the island
Palm trees grow tall as the sky
Tradewinds blow gentle on the island
Part of my wild but gentle paradise

Wild and gentle, like the rose and the wind
Wild and gentle is this isle that I love
Wild and gentle is this dream that I’m in

My dreams grow wild on the island
But gentle as a palm tree in the sky
My heart beats wild on the island
For a love I can’t deny

Wild and gentle, like the rose and the wind
Wild and gentle is this isle that I love
Wild and gentle is this dream that I’m in

My dreams grow wild on the island
But gentle as a palm tree in the sky
My heart beats wild on the island
For a love I can’t deny

Wild and gentle, like the rose and the wind
Wild and gentle is this isle that I love
Wild and gentle is this dream that I’m in



Pretty Island Girl (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2003) (song#2472)

Island girl, what do I have to do
To find out if I stand a chance with you

Island girl, I lived so sadly
Felt that life had treated me so badly
Until, you set my heart awhirl
My island girl

Island girl, no contention
You made me stumble, my heart is humble
I’m just an island guy, an isle invention
My island girl

I know I’m in love with you
Future days will be
An isle of paradise
For you and me

Island girl, write in your diary
Island girl, I’m not one to tarry
Island girl, you and I will marry
Here on our isle of paradise
My island girl



A Logical Fantasy (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2004) (song#2473)

It was logical that I would fall in love with you
But a fantasy that you would ever love me too
It was logical that I should dream
Of things that would never be
Just a fantasy of schemes
That you would ever dream of me

It was a logical fantasy
Just an island in the stream
Fed by deep emotion
And an ocean of moonbeams
The island wasn’t fantasy
But the dream could not come true
A lifetime of ecstasy
It was a logical fantasy of me and you

It was logical that you would be here in paradise
But a fantasy that you could see me in your eyes
It was logical that my heart would break
When I saw you stroll away
Just a fantasy, a big mistake
But I still dream of you today

It was a logical fantasy
Just an island in the stream
Fed by deep emotion
And an ocean of moonbeams
The island wasn’t fantasy
But the dream could not come true
A lifetime of ecstasy
It was a logical fantasy of me and you

A lifetime of ecstasy
It was a logical fantasy of me and you



Honolulu State Of Mind (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2004) (song#2474)

Your letter caught me by surprise
I’ve thought about you from time to time
How are things back in paradise
And do they still play those Maui chimes

Honolulu seems so far away
Like dreams gone astray a million miles
I’d like to come again today
Just to be with you there on the isle

Now I stroll around in Austin
May as well be stuck in Boston
Nine to five is the weekly grind
I’m in a Honolulu state of mind

I just read Return To Paradise
James Michener was a Texan too
I found the book was full of lies
Cause all my island dreams turned blue

It’s two thousand miles or more
From Austin to the Honolulu shore
I still have my koa wood guitar
I’d come tomorrow if I could find my star

Keep all those moonbeams in that jar
I might return to paradise sometime

Now I stroll around in Austin
May as well be stuck in Boston
Nine to five is the weekly grind
I’m in a Honolulu state of mind



An Island Far Away (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2004) (song#2475)

Of an island far away
Long ago I dreamed one day
And now I stroll here by the sea
And that dream is here by me

My skies were dark without love’s spark
Not like blue skies of paradise
Now I hear singing of the lark
When I see the smile within your eyes

Warm is the feeling, and so fine
Of your hand when it’s in mine
And my dreams have all come true
Of an island far away with you

Of an island far away
Long ago I dreamed one day
And now I stroll here by the sea
And that dream is here by me

Warm is the feeling, and so fine
Of your hand when it’s in mine
And my dreams have all come true
Of an island far away with you



K-POI Radio (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2004) (song#2476)

Down on the island by the bay
One day long ago I heard you play
It was at the luau show
Your kiho’alu guitar sounds the same
But now it’s such a doggone shame
I only hear you now on K-POI radio

Don’t you remember when you said to me
You would be my baby by the sea
I guess the stars got in your eyes
Playing sweet love songs in paradise
Baby, baby, don’t you know I’m feeling low
I only hear you now on K-POI radio

This loneliness is a sad affair
When love songs are only on the air
Your kiho’alu guitar sounds the same
But now it’s such a doggone shame
Will I see you again where tradewinds blow
Or just find you again on K-POI radio

This loneliness is a sad affair
When love songs are only on the air
Your kiho’alu guitar sounds the same
But now it’s such a doggone shame
Will I see you again where tradewinds blow
Or just find you again on K-POI radio



Cottage Candle Light (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2004) (song#2477)

Place a candle in our cottage window
Cause I’ve got to sail before the dawn
Though I’ll be sailing with the tide of the moon
I’ll be returning to our island soon
Looking for that cottage candle light

I’ve got my sea bags packed and filed
Cause I’m bound to sail for awhile
But while I’m gone from our island home
Sweetheart, you won’t have to worry long
I’ll pass through the reef one fortnight
Looking for that cottage candle light

Guess I’m just a sailor to the bone
Sweetheart, I hate to leave you all alone
But don’t fear that I will lose my way
I will steer back home where breezes play
I’ll be coming with the tide when moon is bright
Looking for that cottage candle light

Place a candle in our cottage window
Cause I’ve got to sail before the dawn
Though I’ll be sailing with the tide of the moon
I’ll be returning to our island soon
Looking for that cottage candle light

Looking for that cottage candle light
Looking for that cottage candle light
Looking for that cottage candle light



Manhattan Isle (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2004) (song#2478)

I live on Manhattan island
In the heart of a big ol’ city
I live on Manhattan island
Call it a shame and a pity

I might as well go drown my sorrows
In the middle of the sea
I don’t see no bright tomorrows
On Manhattan island here for me

Don’t you know my heart is broken
But that girl don’t care, you see
Don’t you know my heart is broken
And Mahattan isle is killin’ me

There’s nobody who still cares
They’re all putin’ on their airs
They don’t respond to signal flares
From my shipwrecked heart in need

Don’t you know my heart is broken
But that girl don’t care, you see
Don’t you know my heart is broken
And Mahattan isle is killin’ me



Lovely Island Sky (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2004) (song#2479)

Lovely island sky
Lovely sky, lovely island sky
And me bein’ in love
I don’t ask her why
I don’t ask her why
Lovely island sky, lovely island sky

Lovely island night
Lovely night, lovely island night
And me bein’ in love
It feels so right
It feels so right
Lovely island night, lovely island night

When I sleep I don’t count sheep
Cause I keep counting all her love, it seems
And when we stroll down by the bay
My island love will wear my lei of dreams

Lovely island day
Lovely day, lovely island day
And me bein’ in love
It’s just the island way
It’s just the island way
Lovely island day, lovely island day



Happy Island Man (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2004) (song#2480)

It’s a happy island man
Who strolls right on down
It’s a happy island man
Strolling down to old Lahaina town

Don’t need to do no searchin’
For a true love there to find
Just strollin’ and researchin’
How her love came to be mine

It’s a happy island man
Strollin’ in a tropic zone
It’s a happy island man
With a love to call his own

Never been so happy
Since the world of man began
Here I am, an island chappie
Come meet a happy, happy island man

Never been so happy
Since the world of man began
Here I am, a real tan chappie
Come meet a happy, happy island man



Lonely Mainland People (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2004) (song#2481)

This song’s for lonely mainland people
Who think that love has passed them by
Don’t lose your grip, just take a ship
To an isle of paradise

This song’s for lonely mainland people
Who had a dream that went on by
Don’t lose your grip, just take a ship
To an isle with rainbows in the sky

Well, I’m here to say
That I’m sailing across the foam
To where the skies are never gray
In my tropic island home

This song’s for lonely mainland people
Who had a dream that went on by
Don’t lose your grip, just take a ship
To an isle with rainbows in the sky



Where’s This Place (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2004) (song#2482)

Where’s this place called old Lahaina town

I’m looking for old Lahaina town
I’ve got a heart that’s broken down
I need a place to rest my frown
Where’s this place called old Lahaina town

A place where there’s some tall palm trees
Bright starlight and gentle breeze
Where moonlight dreams are so renown
Where’s this place called old Lahaina town

Perhaps in old Lahaina town
There’s someone just like me
Who needs a love that might be found
To mend a heart down by the sea

When I find old Lahaina town
With my heart that’s broken down
Maybe I can rest my frown
Where’s this place called old Lahaina town

Where’s this place called old Lahaina town



Blue Ocean Flows (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2004) (song#2483)

Where the blue ocean flows
It flows by my island
Where the tall palm trees grow
They grow in island sand
Where Mauna Kea meets the sky
In the bright blue of paradise
Where the blue ocean flows by my island

Where the bird of paradise calls
He calls on my island
Where a lonely teardrop falls
It falls in island sand
Where the tropic sun is high
That’s where you’ll see me cry
Where the blue ocean flows by my island

If only someone else could be
In my shoes here by the sea
If only she were here with me
Where the blue ocean flows by my island

This lonely island I’m singing of
Mountains, trees and golden sand
Is missing the woman that I love
And my heart don’t understand
I thought that when islands call
True love would come as I recall
Where the blue ocean flows by my island



Keep Sailing On (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2004) (song#2484)

Well, I’ve been a long time gone
Guess I’ll just keep sailing on
Cause the time you spend out on the sea
The waves just keep a-rolling
Sail on
To another distant ocean
Chasing dreams another day
Like Newton’s law of motion
What else can I say

Well, I just take it all in stride
Guess I’ll just keep sailing on
She’ll forget about me with the tide
Like a sad old faded song
I’ll never see her anymore
Or sail past her distant shore
Yeah, I’ve been such a long time gone
Guess I’ll just keep sailing on
Guess I’ll just keep sailing on

But I get so lonely when I’m without her
Somewhere in my mind I wish that things were
Good old times
Some faces that I see remind me of her name
But I know that I’m just dreaming all the same
Of sweet Maui chimes

Well, I just take it all in stride
Guess I’ll just keep sailing on
She’ll forget about me with the tide
Like a sad old faded song
I’ll never see her anymore
Or sail past her distant shore
Yeah, I’ve been such a long time gone
Guess I’ll just keep sailing on
Guess I’ll just keep sailing on



My Love (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2004) (song#2485)

Longer than the islands grew from oceans
Sweeter than the songs that bluebirds knew
Softer than the tradewind’s gentle motion
Is the way you’ll find my love for you

Stronger than the drumbeats of the island
Taller than a palm tree ever grew
Loftier than the ascent of Sir Edmund
Is the way you’ll find my love for you

We’ll stroll the warm sand in the winter
Count rainbows through the rains of spring
We’ll sing love songs in fall and summer
In paradise where love is king

And when the fire of love grows mellow
Ours will remain a love that’s true
And though a page or two be faded yellow
Bright is the way you’ll find my love for you

Longer than the islands grew from oceans
Sweeter than the songs that bluebirds knew
Softer than the tradewind’s gentle motion
Is the way you’ll find my love for you



My Future (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2004) (song#2486)

Well, my future ain’t what it used to be
In the past I didn’t know misery
Where tradewinds blow I’ve been set free
No, my future ain’t what it used to be

I thought my future would be better tomorrow
In the past I knew no sorrow
Now all my dreams have drifted out to sea
No, my future ain’t what it used to be

My future is much like the present
Although it may be a little longer
I wonder where my past love went
It sure seemed to be a whole lot stronger

I guess that’s the trouble with the times
My future ain’t what it used to be
In the past I heard sweet Maui chimes
No, my future ain’t what it used to be

Well, my future ain’t what it used to be
In the past I didn’t know misery
Where tradewinds blow I’ve been set free
No, my future ain’t what it used to be



A Tropic Moon (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2004) (song#2487)

If life seems to have done you badly
And all you dreams have turned out sadly
And your heart on the rocks was strewn
Look for a tropic moon

If you’re strolling by yourself only
And all your friends have gone too soon
So that your song does not sound lonely
Look for a tropic moon

Oh, everyone should view a tropic moon
When it shines upon an isle of love
If you stroll beneath a tropic moon
You’ll find the one you’re dreaming of

You don’t have to be a rich man
For even a poor man knows the tune
On the tropic sand every man can
Look for a tropic moon

You don’t have to be a rich man
For even a poor man knows the tune
On the tropic sand every man can
Look for a tropic moon



Silver Lining (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2004) (song#2488)

Here’s something I learned while on the isle
To replace tears with thoughts that bring a smile
It’s not really a secret thing at all
But it can make your troubles seem so small

Every dark cloud has a silver lining
To cheer you up when you feel blue
Think of an island where the sun is shining
It’s the right bright thing to do
Let the silver lining shine for you

If your heart you fill with happiness
There won’t be room for ill and sadness
So, let shine for you the silver lining
And think on the island side of life

Lady, when your sink is full of dishes
Just hum a tune with every pot and pan
Think of a luau where poi and fish is
And see the silver lining in island sand

Every dark cloud has a silver lining
To cheer you up when you feel blue
Think of an island where the sun is shining
It’s the right bright thing to do
Let the silver lining….
Let the silver lining shine for you



Papa’s Words (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2004) (song#2489)

On the isle where I was born
My papa said, he said to me
My son, this isn’t just a yarn
It’s a true island legacy
So, listen to these words from me
Keep this rhyme upon your lips
And a song within your heart
To sing when your foot trips
And your world, it falls apart

See all the colors of the rainbow
As it shines over the isle and streams
See all the colors of the rainbow
As you go strolling through your dreams
See all the colors, see all the colors
As you go strolling through your dreams

Ah, what valuable gift for an island child
For I have followed that lure of song
It has kept my feet from running wild
When I was unsure of where I belong

I followed my heart and I sailed the seas
On the wind like a lark and just as free
I saw all the colors of that rainbow
And I found that only where breezes blow
I saw all the colors of papa’s words wise
Were in the paradise of my true love’s eyes



Lanikai (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2004) (song#2490)

On Oahu we found some sand so white
On the northeast shore one moonlit night
You and I danced by the tiki light
On the beach at Lanikai

I held you close and kissed you too
On Oahu is where our dreams came true
We fell in love there, you and I
On the beach at Lanikai

The tropic moon shone from on high
Those beams of love we made apply
And the vows we made were heaven high
On the beach at Lanikai

Now many moons have passed on by
And we remember still that evening sky
When we fell in love on sand so white
On the beach at Lanikai

The tropic moon shone from on high
Those beams of love we made apply
And the vows we made were heaven high
On the beach at Lanikai

Now many moons have passed on by
And we remember still that evening sky
When we fell in love on sand so white
On the beach at Lanikai



I Need An Island (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2004) (song#2491)

 

I need an island and a love that’s good
My heart is broken and misunderstood
I would go there if I only could
To find an island and a love that’s good

It seems that love has now forgotten me
I feel as lonesome as an empty man
I need someone to find and rescue me
I need an island with some warmer sand

I made my fortune then I lost the same
Now I’m walking in the pouring rain
It cost my future like I knew it would
I need an island and a love that’s good

I was a king once upon a time
Now all I ask is that I’m understood
I need to hear the sound of Maui chimes
On an island where the love is good

I need an island and a love that’s good
My heart is broken and misunderstood
I would go there if I only could
To find an island and a love that’s good



Blue And Losing You (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2004) (song#2492)

Nobody ever sighed for me
Nobody ever cried for me
Aloha ‘oe means goodbye, you see
Here in Hawaii blue
I’m blue and losing you

Love songs here weren’t meant for me
What went wrong I just can’t see
All night long it’s confusing too
Here in Hawaii blue
I’m blue and losing you

What happened to love and devotion
I thought it was deep as the ocean
But like the tide, you took a notion
To drift away into the blue

I wonder who now is holding you
Sharing dreams that we once knew
My heart’s asunder, broke in two
Here in Hawaii blue
I’m blue and losing you

Here in Hawaii blue
I’m blue and losing you



Lost On The Isle Of Love (Larry W. Jones 01/14/2004) (song#2493)

 

I see in your eyes, my love
What you and I returned here dreaming of
Memories from 1961
When you and I had so much fun
And Elvis sang a harmony
Night and you
And blue Hawaii
The night is heavenly
And you are heaven to me
Lost on the isle of love are you and me

Those balmy days are gone for all time
Life isn’t always on a silver platter
But our love’s a song like Maui chimes
And that’s all that really, really matters
And Elvis sang a harmony
Come with me
While the moon is on the sea,
The night is young
And so are we, so are we
Lost on the isle of love are you and me

Now here we are, my love
Under those same stars up above
Memories from 1961
When you and I had so much fun
And Elvis sang a harmony
Dreams come true
In blue Hawaii
And mine could all come true
This magic night of nights with you
Lost on the isle of love are you and me



A Mighty Day (Larry W. Jones 01/14/2004) (song#2494)

 

Eighth of September 1900 was a mighty, mighty day
A hurricane with no name washed Galveston away
The winds were screaming at a hundred twenty mile
And twenty feet of water covered Galveston isle

The Jewel of Texas, Wall Street of the southwest
Knew it was coming but they thought they were blessed
Three bridges to the mainland disappeared with the piles
And twenty feet of water covered Galveston isle

Galveston bay, Galveston bay
Two miles of open water to the mainland away
Eighth of September 1900 was a mighty, mighty day
A hurricane with no name washed Galveston away

Galveston isle, Galveston isle
Six thousand or more lost their island style
Eighth of September 1900 was a mighty, mighty day
A hurricane with no name washed Galveston away

It was a mighty, mighty day



Island Love Grows (Larry W. Jones 01/14/2004) (song#2495)

She don’t wear high heeled shoes
And she don’t sing to the blues
Her long hair flows in the breeze
Island love grows where the tradewind blows
That’s why I chose sweet Leilani

She talks Hawaiian to me
What she says is a mystery
But on this we both agree
Island love grows where the tradewind blows
That’s why I chose sweet Leilani

There’s something about the sand on the isle
When we stroll along we do it in style
Her hand in mine makes me just smile
Down by the bay
We go strolling each day
And we both stay there for awhile

I’m a happy island fella
She’s my island Cinderella
She’s my true love by the sea
Island love grows where the tradewind blows
That’s why I chose sweet Leilani

Island love grows where the tradewind blows
That’s why I chose sweet Leilani

You Can Tell (Larry W. Jones 01/14/2004) (song#2496)

You can tell
When you first step on the shore

You can tell
If you’re on an island of love

Every palm tree waves Aloha and smiles
Rainbows shine through the rain on the isle

You never had that special feeling before
Moonlight and wine on your honeymoon

The music of sweet Maui chimes
Says come back and see us sometime

Wherever you travel, wherever you roam
You can tell
If you’re on an island of love

You can tell
When you first step on the shore

Every palm tree waves Aloha and smiles
Rainbows shine through the rain on the isle

You never had that special feeling before
Moonlight and wine on your honeymoon

The music of sweet Maui chimes
Says come back and see us sometime

Wherever you travel, wherever you roam
You can tell
If you’re on an island of love



You Can Tell (Larry W. Jones 01/14/2004) (song#2496)

Love is an island kind of thing
A sweet tuberose where breezes blow
And where true love is in full swing

Love is the island’s way of saying
That lasting vows will soon be conveying
In old Lahaina town where love has taken wing

Once upon a warm and sandy shore
Underneath the moon two lovers swooned
And the island spoke its magic lore

Then we lingered long enough
To hear the bird of paradise sing
Yes, true love is an island kind of thing

Once upon a warm and sandy shore
Underneath the moon two lovers swooned
And the island spoke its magic lore

Then we lingered long enough
To hear the bird of paradise sing
Yes, true love is an island kind of thing



Mahalo For Your Love (Larry W. Jones 01/14/2004) (song#2498)

 

Mahalo nui loa for the beauty of your face
Mahalo nui loa for your island style and grace
Mahalo nui loa for your heartfelt words of love
That my heart has felt was from heaven up above

Thank you very much, Hawaii
Where love and dreams can bloom and grow
And thank you for the gentle rains
That brings the perfect colors of rainbows

Mahalo nui loa for the ocean waves and foam
That rocks our love to gentle sleep
Mahalo nui loa for this paradise called home
That holds Aloha love so very deep

Thank you for the sunshine
Mahalo nui loa for the moon above
Thank you, sweetheart, for being mine
Mahalo nui loa for your love

Thank you for the sunshine
Mahalo nui loa for the moon above
Thank you, sweetheart, for being mine
Mahalo nui loa for your love



Fare Thee Well (Larry W. Jones 01/14/2004) (song#2499)

 

Oh, fare thee well, my sweet Leilani
Aye, for I shall sail with the tide
T’ward Mandalay, my sweet Leilani
Then shall I return for my sweet bride
Pray, let not my absence bother you
For my love shall be forever true

I shall be for you an able bodied seaman
Tis for you I shall fight the waves and wind
Worry not though the ocean be with danger
For I shall return on strong tradewinds
Oh, fare thee well, my sweet Leilani
Watch for high tide to bring my love again

Then we kissed and I bid Aloha ‘oe
And watched as the ship left the shore
The lei that I threw for Leilani
Floated back with the love that I bore
Oh, fare thee well, my sweet Leilani
As tears from her eyes they did pour

I shall be for you an able bodied seaman
Tis for you I shall fight the waves and wind
Worry not though the ocean be with danger
For I shall return on strong tradewinds
Oh, fare thee well, my sweet Leilani
Watch for high tide to bring my love again



Twenty Five Hundred (Larry W. Jones 01/14/2004) (song#2500)

 

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

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



Fast I Will Go (Larry W. Jones 01/14/2004) (song#2501)

 

Oh, the mainland snows are now all past
Spring time of year has come at last
Robins are singing in the old oak trees
I’m glad they’re happy, but I am sad
For my true love on the isle is far away

For all who are in love yet far apart
Pity you and me the pain that we endure
Know from the start that your very heart
Is full of woe and that’s for sure

So, fast I will go where tradewinds blow
For it’s there I’ll find my love, I know

A smile I will wear when I see her there
On the isle so green and full of cheer
With care I’ll place a flower in her hair
And kiss again the one I love so dear

So, fast I will go where tradewinds blow
For it’s there I’ll find my love, I know

A smile I will wear when I see her there
On the isle so green and full of cheer
With care I’ll place a flower in her hair
And kiss again the one I love so dear



Paradise Dwells So Well (Larry W. Jones 01/15/2004) (song#2502)

 

Like moonbeams on a silver sea
Like sweet tuberoses kissed by morning dew
Like birds of paradise in tall palm trees
Paradise dwells so well with you

Like kids playing on a sandy shore
And songs they sing so fresh and new
Like the old love songs of island lore
Paradise dwells so well with you

It’s soft as the moonlight in your eyes
And the fragrant flower in your hair
There’s nothing that I would revise
For you wear paradise everywhere

Like moonbeams on a silver sea
Like sweet tuberoses kissed by morning dew
Like birds of paradise in tall palm trees
Paradise dwells so well with you

Down by the bay you look so beautiful
I just have to say you really do
My love will stay with you so dutiful
Cause paradise dwells so well with you



No Sad Requiem (Larry W. Jones 01/15/2004) (song#2503)

 

I could never leave in spring time
When all is new in old Lahaina town
And island flowers are growing
Throughout the islands ’round
When children play in crystal waters
With bays and mountains to explore
For winter, dark and dreary winter
Ne’er sets foot on balmy shores

I could never leave in summer
When love is whispered on the breeze
And soft steel guitar music
Floats through the tall palm trees
Birds of paradise are singing
Sweet songs throughout the day
No, with all the isle is bringing
I could never stroll away

I could never leave in autumn
When Ko’olau breezes flow from mountains
Breathes life from misty fountains
To cool the bowers as before
When harvest moon has lovers sighing
In the valleys, shore and glen
Autumn love will not be dying
So, I could never leave just then

I could never leave in winter
For the tropic night still speaks of love
And far away the snow is lying
On Mauna Kea’s high slopes above
I welcome the wind at midnight
That blows warmly from the sea
For in no season have I fright
There’s no sad requiem here for me



Like A Steel Guitar (Larry W. Jones 01/15/2004) (song#2504)

 

Island love is like a steel guitar
Strong as steel the feel within your heart
But soft as moonbeams under stars
And it cries so sadly when you part

The music of the islands is in the steel guitar
Strong as steel but soft as moonbeams always are

So, make my heart your island steel guitar
Play it soft as moonbeams under stars
And in the music of its love
Kiss me and say Aloha under stars above

The music of the islands is in the steel guitar
Strong as steel but soft as moonbeams always are

So, make my heart your island steel guitar
Play it soft as moonbeams under stars
And in the music of its love
Kiss me and say Aloha under stars above



Like An Island Song (Larry W. Jones 01/15/2004) (song#2505)

 

Kiss me and my heart goes flutter
Your kiss is warm as toast and butter
Makes my heart just coast along
Your kiss is like an island song

Kiss me and I climb a rainbow
Out where the tradewinds blow
A kiss from you is never wrong
Your kiss is like an island song

Your kiss is really something swell
Your kiss brings thoughts of wedding bells
The castle walls of my heart fell
Your kiss is where my lips belong

Kiss me and my heart’s on fire
Like a tiki torch of hot desire
A fever I’ve got but nothing’s wrong
Your kiss is like an island song

Kiss me and my heart goes flutter
Your kiss is warm as toast and butter
Makes my heart just coast along
Your kiss is like an island song



Stronger By The Sea (Larry W. Jones 01/15/2004) (song#2506)

I tried to tell myself, another season
You strolled away with little reason
But I think we both realize what is to be
For island love is stronger by the sea

When we held each other close
Both of our hearts were singing
And when we felt each other’s touch
A bird of paradise went winging

I know there’s no way you’ll disagree
That island love is stronger by the sea

My heart and yours were meant for caring
Your love and mine was meant for sharing
It’s almost like established destiny
For island love is stronger by the sea

Yes, I tried to tell myself, another season
You strolled away with little reason
But we know that love states what must be
For island love is stronger by the sea



A Lifetime With You (Larry W. Jones 01/15/2004) (song#2507)

 

I look as you awaken to Manoa morning
I reach and take your hand close in mine
Our fingers softly say that love is warming
And it makes the flame of love forever shine

Love is the ocean that our island’s anchored in
Devotion deep as the ocean, sweet as wine
It’s only right that we two be in love
A lifetime with you is all I want to find

I look as you awaken to Manoa morning
Our fingers softly say that love is warming

Love is the ocean that our island’s anchored in
Devotion deep as the ocean, sweet as wine
It’s only right that we two be in love
A lifetime with you is all I want to find

It’s only right that we two be in love
A lifetime with you is all I want to find



Moonlight Dream (Larry W. Jones 01/15/2004) (song#2508)

 

Moonlight floated in my cottage window
From somewhere in a velvet sky above
There by myself in my cottage room
I saw moonlight beams of island love

In beams of moonlight I clearly saw
Dreams that even lovers seldom see
Out of the tropic night with awe
She was a dream that called to me

Moonlight was in my cottage by the shore
With dreams of love I’d never known
Until beams of love waltzed out the door
And my dream of island love was gone

Then I awoke from the sleep I was in
Moonbeams through my cottage window danced
I thought I heard island violins
But it was just a mindless circumstance

In beams of moonlight I clearly saw
Dreams that even lovers seldom see
Out of the tropic night with awe
She was a dream that called to me

Moonlight was in my cottage by the shore
With dreams of love I’d never known
Until beams of love waltzed out the door
And my dream of island love was gone



Email Last Goodbye (Larry W. Jones 01/15/2004) (song#2509)

Emails straight from your hard drive
Lets me know that you’re still alive
But there’s something I don’t comprehend
About every email that you send

I try to read between the lines
Something there says you’re no longer mine
Something about an island and a last goodbye
In emails straight from your hard drive

I try to read between the lines
Something there says you’re no longer mine
Something about an island and a last goodbye
In emails straight from your hard drive

Something about an island and a last goodbye
In emails straight from your hard drive



A Far Off Island (Larry W. Jones 01/15/2004) (song#2510)

 

Somewhere in this world there’s an island in the sea
It’s secret is that love is intertwined
There’s a far off island I want for you to see
But it’s not too far away for us to find

We’ll hold each other like love notes in a song
We will share our love where island love is strong
Every dream we have, every one we own
Is on that island far away where you and I belong

We’ll hold each other here while we dream
And make believe that we’re already there
On that island far away where love is king
Where I can place a flower in your hair

Somewhere in this world there’s an island in the sea
There’s a far off island I want for you to see

We’ll hold each other like love notes in a song
We will share our love where island love is strong
Every dream we have, every one we own
Is on that island far away where you and I belong



A Song Of Island Love (Larry W. Jones 01/15/2004) (song#2511)

Where does a song of island love begin
That relates how great your love is to me
That love song from isles of distant seas
That brings to my heart your love for me
Where does a song of island love begin

I guess it was with your first shy Aloha
That’s why the sun itself is in this world of mine
It was then I knew no other love would ever shine
You strolled into my lonely life right on time
That’s where a song of island love began

Your smile here on the isle is a special thing
You fill my heart with song that only love can bring
Your hand in mine as we slowly strolled along
Was part of the start of an endless island song
That’s where a song of island love began

Where does a song of island love now end
Love like ours isn’t measured by the day
The only thing I can think to say of when
Is that our love will stay til islands fade away
That’s where another song of island love begins



True Love Strolled In (Larry W. Jones 01/15/2004) (song#2512)

True love strolled in that day
When I met you where palm trees sway
True love strolled in that day
And drove my loneliness so far away

I remember the moment, you seemed to know
You stole my heart where tradewinds blow
It was when you said Aloha, hello
True love strolled in that day, I know

I remember the glance, instant romance
You drove my loneliness into the past
One look, I knew I had to take the chance
And you became my island love at last

One stroll around old Lahaina town
On stroll and I knew I had found
An island where love was completely new
True love strolled in that day with you



Lovely Island Treat (Larry W. Jones 01/16/2004) (song#2513)

 

You’re my island girl, pineapple sweet
You’re my island girl, you can’t be beat
You’re such a lovely island treat
I love all of you most of all

I see you when you do that island stroll
You cause my heart to rock and roll
Loving you is my earnest goal
I love all of you most of all

You’re as sweet as a sugar cane stalk
I love to hear the way you talk (Hawaiian)
My eye is on you like a hawk
I love all of you most of all

I like the way you let me hold your hand
You’re the love song from an island band
My love, I hope you understand
You’re the reason why the islands call

I see you when you do that island stroll
You cause my heart to rock and roll
You’re as sweet as a sugar cane stalk
I love to hear the way you talk (Hawaiian)

You’re my island girl, pineapple sweet
You’re my island girl, you can’t be beat
You’re such a lovely island treat
I love all of you most of all



I Loved You Well (Larry W. Jones 01/16/2004) (song#2514)

 

Love is here in Hawaii blue for us
Though we’re strangers as of today
But a lifetime is not too long for us
To share the things we have to say

And as we go where tradewinds blow
We’ll take what life gives day by day
We’ll find each day a new rainbow
And a love of gold here by the bay

I’m sure that you’ll stay close to me
But we can let time itself to us tell
Even though we’re strangers, you and me
That a lifetime will say, I loved you well

Island time goes by so slow
Time enough to let love grow
And time will say to us, I know
I told you so, island love is gold

Love is here in Hawaii blue for us
Though we’re strangers as of today
But a lifetime is not too long for us
To share the things we have to say

I’m sure that you’ll stay close to me
But we can let time itself to us tell
Even though we’re strangers, you and me
That a lifetime will say, I loved you well



Sunday Manoa Day (Larry W. Jones 01/16/2004) (song#2515)

Sometimes the tropic sun of morning
Gets in my eyes and I am blind
And sometimes with no warning
Life’s heavy load weighs on my mind

Then all I do is look at you
And life’s heavy load goes away
And every day in Hawaii blue
Is a Sunday Manoa island day

Sometimes a day that I must face
Will be just another long rat race
And someone wants to be unkind
It’s real Aloha love I need to find

Then all I do is look at you
And life’s heavy load goes away
And every day in Hawaii blue
Is a Sunday Manoa island day

Sometimes a day that I must face
Will be just another long rat race
And someone wants to be unkind
It’s real Aloha love I need to find

Then all I do is look at you
And life’s heavy load goes away
And every day in Hawaii blue
Is a Sunday Manoa island day



Bring Your Love Back (Larry W. Jones 01/16/2004) (song#2516)

 

You sailed away and left me blue
That was so unkind
I said that I’d forget you too
But you’re still on my mind

The sky was bright and blue above
All was right and so was love for me
But love, now my heart is empty of
Oh, bring your love back from the sea

Love came that day, then sailed away
That day is gone, oh woe is me
But my broken heart still sings today
Oh, bring your love back from the sea

I think of all the little things
We used to do to make hearts sing
Now I’m lonely as I stroll alone
How can love grow cold in a tropic zone

The sky was bright but now it’s dark
All that was right has lost its spark
Now my broken heart sings just to me
Oh, bring your love back from the sea
Oh, bring your love back from the sea



Rain Of Ko’olau (Larry W. Jones 01/16/2004) (song#2517)

How gentle the rain of Ko’olau
That falls softly on the shore
Birds of paradise in pandanus trees
Serenade the mist with island melodies

Look around where breezes blow
And you’ll see what I’m thinking of
How bright the colors of new rainbows
Just right today for us to fall in love

As soon as I belong to you
The tropic moon will shine forever
Love me tenderly and true
And this tie that binds won’t sever

Oh, I will never make you cry
No lonely night will you ever see
Love me true and tenderly
And this day of love will last eternally

If we should go, we will return
To this gentle island shore
We’ll stroll together where we learned
That love can last for evermore

How gentle the rain of Ko’olau
That falls softly on the shore
How bright the colors of new rainbows
Just right today for us to fall in love



I Have Been A Sailor (Larry W. Jones 01/16/2004) (song#2518)

I have been a sailor
Often I have sailed alone
Sailed through oceans seven
Looking for a tropic home
I tell myself I’m happy
But if the truth be known, you see
I have sailed most of my life away
With no time for love for me

I met a girl in Mandalay
One bright and sunny morn
But then I had to sail away
From arms that were so warm
Her lips were sweet as sugar cane
She could smile away the rain
I often think about her
But I have been a sailor

Often I have sailed alone
Sailed through oceans seven
Looking for a tropic home
I tell myself I’m happy
But if the truth be known, you see
I have sailed most of my life away
With no time for love for me

I met a girl on Maui
Down in old Lahaina town
But we pulled anchor for the sea
Before the sun went down
Her lips were sweet as sugar cane
She could smile away the rain
I often think about her
But I have been a sailor

I have been a sailor
Often I have sailed alone
Sailed through oceans seven
Looking for a tropic home
I tell myself I’m happy
But if the truth be known, you see
I have sailed most of my life away
With no time for love for me



Her Lovin’ Island Man (Larry W. Jones 01/16/2004) (song#2519)

My island baby causes steamy weather
She’s always warm and never cold
I know she’ll never change her feathers
In a million years or so

As long as the tropic moon’s above me
As long as my heart is in her hands
My island baby knows that I will be
Forever her lovin’ island man

My island baby keeps our love in motion
Our love is just as deep as any ocean
I know our love will never drift or go
In a million years or so

My island baby causes steamy weather
She’s always warm and never cold
I know she’ll never change her feathers
In a million years or so

As long as the tropic moon’s above me
As long as my heart is in her hands
My island baby knows that I will be
Forever her lovin’ island man



Hawaii And Tahiti Too (Larry W. Jones 01/16/2004) (song#2520)

Low and lonely in Hawaii blue
Sad and blue in Tahiti too
Dreaming only of love that’s true
Cryin’ my heart out over you
I’m low and lonely, sad and blue
Over you in Hawaii and Tahiti too

I wonder if you miss me
Somehow I just know that you do
Sweetheart, please please tell me
What you want for me to do
I’m low and lonely, sad and blue
Over you in Hawaii and Tahiti too

Don’t you know I love you only
I’m so lonely for the love we knew
It’s been a sad song, much too long
Cryin’ my heart out over you
I’m low and lonely, sad and blue
Over you in Hawaii and Tahiti too

I wonder if you miss me
Somehow I just know that you do
Sweetheart, please please tell me
What you want for me to do
I’m low and lonely, sad and blue
Over you in Hawaii and Tahiti too



Lullaby Of Paradise (Larry W. Jones 01/20/2004) (song#2521)

Oh, lullaby of paradise
Whisper here where tradewinds blow
Only in this island realm
Where dreams come true, I know
Could there be words that reveal
This lullaby of paradise so real

Have you heard two birds of paradise
Sing to each other their song of bliss
That kind of music fills the skies
When your lips and mine both kiss

And I’ve never seen a weeping willow
Here on the isle to make us cry
I’m happy when I’m sleeping on my pillow
For I never dream of Aloha ‘oe, goodbye

Oh, lullaby of paradise
Whisper here where tradewinds blow
Music flying high in paradise
Where dreams come true, I know
Oh, let this song our love now seal
This lullaby of paradise so real

Have you heard two birds of paradise
Sing to each other their song of bliss
That kind of music fills the skies
When your lips and mine both kiss

Oh, let this song our love now seal
This lullaby of paradise so real



Song Of Island Love (Larry W. Jones 01/20/2004) (song#2522)

Hear the tradewind, the gentle breeze
Hear the birds up in pandanus trees
Hear the song that they’re now singing
It’s our song of island love

Hear the tradewind, love’s sweet refrain
Sweeter than sweet sugar cane
We both heard the words that it sang
It’s our song of island love

Forever and then for a day
We’ll make our dreams come true
Forever and then for a day
Will be our song of island love so true

With every beat of my heart
I say Aloha
Aloha ku’u ipo, I love you
And this song that’s in my heart
It’s our song of island love

Forever and then for a day
We’ll make our dreams come true
Forever and then for a day
Will be our song of island love so true

With every beat of my heart
I say Aloha
Aloha ku’u ipo, I love you
And this song that’s in my heart
It’s our song of island love



Luau Lulu (Larry W. Jones 01/20/2004) (song#2523)

Where’s that sloppy new bellhop
My ditty bag I think he dropped
If it’s lost, I’ll call a cop
My toiletries must be found
When he took my bags up to the room
I think he broke my best perfume
I can’t just sing the blues
That perfume I’ve gotta use
Cause Luau Lulu’s back in old Lahaina town

Gotta look my very best
Get my Aloha shirt neatly pressed
I’m on a little island quset
Cause Luau Lulu’s back in old Lahaina town
Gotta find a fragrant lei somewhere
Find a flower for her hair
Shine my sandals with extra care
Cause Luau Lulu’s back in old Lahaina town

Gonna pay off my mainland debts
Cancel my return ticket on that jet
Tell my boss that I regret
I won’t be seein’ him around
I just heard the islands call
Might not go home again at all
My heart is just about to fall
Cause Luau Lulu’s back in old Lahaina town

I just heard the islands call
Might not go home again at all
My heart is just about to fall
Cause Luau Lulu’s back in old Lahaina town



My Island Rosie (Larry W. Jones 01/20/2004) (song#2524)

You are my island Rosie
And you have stole my heart away
Stroll with me under the moonlight
And listen to these words I have to say

Your island boy is waiting
For your lucious lips to meet
So, don’t be hesitating
My island Rosie sweet

You’re sugar sweet to this island chappie
It’s such a treat when you’re by my side
And I would be oh, so happy
If I could make you my sweet bride

They all call you island Rosie
But you put roses even here to shame
You and I will be real cozy
As soon as I can change your name

You are my island Rosie
And you have stole my heart away
Stroll with me under the moonlight
And listen to these words I have to say

Your island boy is waiting
For your lucious lips to meet
So, don’t be hesitating
My island Rosie sweet



Island Lovesick Blues (Larry W. Jones 01/20/2004) (song#2525)

I went to sleep again last night
About as blue as I could be
And I was just as blue at dawn’s first light
Cause there was something worrying me
I’ve wasted tears for what seems years
Chasing dreams here by the sea

I’ve got those worry for her, hurry to her
Midnight eyes all blurry ’cause of her
Island lovesick blues
She keeps me strolling down the shore
Then like a fool, I hang around for more
I know she don’t do me no good
But I can’t leave, even though I know I should
I’ve got those island lovesick blues

I’m not the first she threw away
I’m number seven, or is it eight
She wrote my name in the sand
Said I’d be her island man
I was just about to buy a wedding band
Then the waves came and washed my name away

I’ve got those worry for her, hurry to her
Midnight eyes all blurry ’cause of her
Island lovesick blues
She keeps me strolling down the shore
Then like a fool, I hang around for more
I know she don’t do me no good
But I can’t leave, even though I know I should
I’ve got those island lovesick blues

I know she don’t do me no good
But I can’t leave, even though I know I should
I’ve got those island lovesick blues



And We Vowed (Larry W. Jones 01/20/2004) (song#2526)

Sweet plumeria scented the isle, Leilani
Their perfume spent upon the breeze
When first I said Aloha to you , Leilani
And we vowed our island love would ever be

Rainbows shined in Manoa valley, Leilani
Birds of paradise sang in tall palm trees
When first I said Aloha to you , Leilani
And we vowed our island love would ever be

Soft music came from steel guitars, Leilani
As we danced on nights like these
Remember all those island stars , Leilani
And we vowed our island love here by the sea

A kiss as sweet as a tuberose, Leilani
Was there to greet so heavenly
When first I said Aloha to you , Leilani
And we vowed our island love would ever be

Whatever happened to our dreams, Leilani
Maybe they were never meant to be
When first I said Aloha to you , Leilani
And we vowed our island love would ever be



Old Sailor’s Cafe (Larry W. Jones 01/20/2004) (song#2527)

Moana wakes up early, usually at four AM
By five, behind the counter before it’s day
Her sailor friends out on the docks
Will soon be dropping in
Not long after she punches her time clock
At the old sailors cafe by the bay

Moana’s been there working where sailors lies reside
Years of coffee refills and toast with hashbrowns on the side
Whatever dreams there are across the ocean
She’ll never see the other side
She’s on the downhill side of forty
At the old sailors cafe by the bay

Moana’s never found a true island love
Getting up at four AM is tough
Not enough time for making time thereof
Oh, but Moana holds onto her dream
It’s the only thing, it seems
That keeps her star from falling from above

Moana knows all the sailors by first name
Spam and eggs and change for twenties
Old sea stories light the flicker of her flame
But all she gets is pots and pans and pennies

And she turns on the radio when she’s all alone
Washing up the dishes to the saddest songs
She looks to the horizon as ships sail far away
It’s time to close at the old sailors cafe by the bay



In A Love So True (Larry W. Jones 01/21/2004) (song#2528)

Come and stroll hand in hand
You and me, by the sea
Here in Hawaii blue
You’ve always been in my mind
Island magic here we’ll find
In a love so true

Please believe me when I say
Nothing would dare get in our way
Please believe me when I say
Our love will never fade away

And when you see your dreams survive
Mine, too, will be there by your side
Yours and mine will stay alive
In a love so true

From where we stand in island sand
I see a rainbow in the blue
We’ll soon be island wife and man
In a love so true

Through every day I’ll be beside you
Just like I did when islands called
If you fall, I’ll be here to catch you
I’ll keep you safe within love’s wall

Please believe me when I say
Nothing would dare get in our way
Please believe me when I say
Our love will never fade away

And when you see your dreams survive
Mine, too, will be there by your side
Yours and mine will stay alive
In a love so true



Island Moments (Larry W. Jones 01/21/2004) (song#2529)

Island moments, when two hearts were quaking
Island moments, the start of mem’ries making

I remember the moment
When we strolled together at high tide
I think you even got the hint
That soon I’d ask you to be my bride

Island moments, when two hearts were quaking
Island moments, the start of mem’ries making
We’ll remember well the stories of
Those early island moments of our love

The fragrant lei I gave you
That got wet with the island shower
And the way you let me kiss you
When I placed in your hair that flower

Island moments, when two hearts were quaking
Island moments, the start of mem’ries making
We’ll remember well the stories of
Those early island moments of our love

The fender bender on the north shore
When I let you drive my car that day
And the splendor we could not ignore
Watching sunsets on the bay

Island moments, when two hearts were quaking
Island moments, the start of mem’ries making
We’ll remember well the stories of
Those early island moments of our love



Fall In Love With Me (Larry W. Jones 01/21/2004) (song#2530)

Stroll here in the sand where the tradewinds blow
Let me be your island man and I’ll take it slow
Let me hold you in my arms and never let you go
Listen to the steel guitars playing low
The island is a fine composer
Fall in love with me

Let me hold you in my arms in the soft moonlight
Let me kiss you once again under stars so bright
Dance with me, romance until the mornin’ light
Listen to the music drifting out of sight
The island is a fine composer
Fall in love with me

While you’re here, it’s all so clear
The isle’s all yours and mine
Where tradewinds blow, I love you so
And tonight my heart is feelin’ fine

When you’re in my arms, my heart skips a beat
I love the way Aloha means yes, yes, sweet, sweet
Let me kiss you once again just to feel the heat
Island girl, I love your hula sway so neat
Here’s one thing I have to tell you
Fall in love with me

When you’re in my arms, my heart skips a beat
I love the way Aloha means yes, yes, sweet, sweet
Let me kiss you once again just to feel the heat
Island girl, I love your hula sway so neat
Here’s one thing I have to tell you
Fall in love with me



Colors Made Of Flame (Larry W. Jones 01/21/2004) (song#2531)

I have seen the fire red beauty
Of the mountains in the rain
It is the brilliant lehua blossom
Kissed by colors made of flame

I give the lehua as a token
Of the fire within my heart
An island love that can’t be broken
For such a lovely work of art

Ku’u ipo, ku’u pua lehua
Hele mai, hele mai mau loa
E ke Aloha ku’u pua lehua
E ke Aloha mau loa, mau loa

Come to me my fire red beauty
Let our love forever say
Our one desire is just love’s duty
As I weave for you a red lehua lei

Ku’u ipo, ku’u pua lehua
Hele mai, hele mai mau loa
E ke Aloha ku’u pua lehua
E ke Aloha mau loa, mau loa

Ha`ina mai ka puana la
This is the end of my mele
Of my fire red beauty in the rain
Kissed by colors made of flame



Mama’s Tuberoses (Larry W. Jones 01/21/2004) (song#2532)

Oh, mama loved the tuberoses
That grew there on the isle
They were beautiful the way a rose is
And they always made her smile

Oh, mama loved the tuberoses
She grew them all the time
And she would decorate our cottage
With those she thought were prime

When I now hear those Maui chimes
And hear that slack key guitar ring
I remember those sweet island times
When I would hear my mama sing

Oh, mama loved the tuberoses
But most of all she cared
About the way ohana love discloses
The way that we were taught to share

You know I still have that photo albumn
With a tuberose she placed inside
That island tuberose has now become
A lovely flower for the day she died

Oh, mama loved the tuberoses
And the fragrant smell they gave
We now place them where she dozes
On her peaceful island grave

Oh, mama loved the tuberoses
Mama loved the tuberoses



Island Lover’s Serenade (Larry W. Jones 01/21/2004) (song#2533)

Oh, Leilani, ‘neath palm trees I’m waiting
Oh, Leilani, now don’t be hesitating
Like a tiki fire, my heart burns for you
With fondness teeming
And a heart that’s true
Stroll with me while the tropic moon is beaming
For you and me, even the stars are scheming
Hele mai, please come to me, ku’u ipo
Can’t you hear those steel guitars

My sweet Leilani from sunny Maui
You know I love you
Come say Aloha and love me too
Forever make my dreams come true
Just say Aloha when I ask to marry you
And then you’ll truly be
My sweet Leilani from sunny Maui

Oh, Leilani, I’ll keep waiting patiently
Oh, Leilani, come out and stroll with me
Listen from your window to music coming
Birds of paradise
Are for you sweetly humming
Don’t say no, my sweet Maui beauty
For no other love would ever do me
Come stroll with me, my Maui island maid
Listen to my island lover’s serenade



May Every Song (Larry W. Jones 01/21/2004) (song#2534)

May every song you sing be island songs
May Aloha love now come to you
And may your island scenes turn into dreams
And may all your dreams come true

May every song you sing be island songs
May Aloha love be with every friend you meet
And may your feet always stroll along
To songs of island love so sweet

All songs turn into oldies after many years
But island songs are hapa haoles to my ears
They’re sung under the moon and stars above
Cause island songs are hewn from Aloha love

May every song you sing be island songs
About love and beauty and a flower lei
And may every song be just as beautiful
As the song I sing of your sweet love today

May every song you sing be island songs
As you stroll along



It’s Still True (Larry W. Jones 01/21/2004) (song#2535)

I said to myself
You’re from the top shelf
And it’s still true

I used to think of
You as my true love
And it’s still true

You’re such a beauty
Much more than a cutie
I feel it’s my duty
To be honest and true

The islands called me
Here to your Hawaii blue
Where dreams come true

Your charms enthralled me
Your love has installed me
As king of your heart too

You’re so delightful
Night time is full of
Moon light and songs of
My longing for you

I said that you were
The girl that I prefer
And it’s still true

I used to dream of you
More than you knew
And it’s still true

To be very truthful
The night is still youthful
And it’s still true
And we are too



Oh Tropic Star (Larry W. Jones 01/22/2004) (song#2536)

This song is about an island girl
Whose sweetheart one day sailed away
He sailed to where the breakers curl
And he’s still there this very day

Oh, tropic star, wherever it is you are
Oh, please guide home safe my island man
Oh, tropic star, shine from afar
And bring him home to me on island sand

He’s been gone away for so long
That sometimes I wonder if I doubt him
Oh, tropic star, please hear my song
For I know I can’t go on without him

He sailed to where the breakers curl
And he’s still there this very day
Oh, tropic star, hear this island girl
Whose sweetheart one day sailed away

Oh, tropic star, wherever it is you are
Oh, please guide home safe my island man
Oh, tropic star, shine from afar
And bring him home to me on island sand

Please guide home safe my island man
Bring him home to me on island sand



Surfin’ Free N Easy (Larry W. Jones 01/22/2004) (song#2537)

Surfin’ free ‘n easy
See the swells break on the shore
Now let your arms relax
And limber up your backs
Hang ten for a minute more
Surfin’ free ‘n easy
On Waikiki’s golden shore

Tradewinds here are breezy
And if surfin’ is your bag
Don’t let your bare feet drag
Wax your board and hurry up
Today the winner gets the cup
Surfin’ free ‘n easy
All you do is zig and zag

Surfin’ is the thing to do
If you to Hawaii flew
Ride that board til you turn blue
Surfin’ free ‘n easy
Like Duke Kahanamoku too

Surfin’ free and easy
Here where tall palm trees sway
You can surf most any day
Wax your board and hurry up
Today the winner gets the cup
Surfin’ free ‘n easy
It’s always been Hawaii’s craze

Surfin’ is the thing to do
If you to Hawaii flew
Ride that board til you turn blue
Surfin’ free ‘n easy
Like Duke Kahanamoku too



Nice Scenery (Larry W. Jones 01/22/2004) (song#2538)

I know of an island
Where troubles and ills are shunned
Take me to that island
To that far off golden shore

It’s got some real nice scenery
I’m not talking of the greenery
Take me to that scenery
To the one that I adore

For on that far off island
In among that greenery
A young rose of island scenery
Grows on that island fair
Brown are her loving arms
Red flower in her hair
Warm are her island charms
Waiting for me there

She waits on that island shore
With the moon and stars above
Who could ever ask for more
Not me, for she’s my only love



My Daydream (Larry W. Jones 01/22/2004) (song#2539)

I’m gonna lie right down and dream myself a daydream
And make believe I’m in Hawaii blue
I’m gonna stroll right down some golden beach
Find me a winsome island peach
Get me a lot of kisses
From my daydream island misses
And make believe my daydream has come true

There on the isle, I’ll smile and wave
Try my best not to misbehave
I’m gonna lie right down and dream myself a daydream
I’m gonna go to a luau and eat poi by the sea
I’ll be an island boy makin’ Maui wowee
I’ll dream she’s wearing my flower lei
And make believe my daydream has come true

There on the isle, I’ll smile and wave
Try my best not to misbehave
I’m gonna lie right down and dream myself a daydream
And make believe my daydream
The one with the island theme
Although it won’t be what it seems
And make believe my daydream has come true



Love Is A Song (Larry W. Jones 01/22/2004) (song#2540)

If island love is a song
Then we’re birds of a feather
Let’s you and I stroll along
And the music will keep us together

If island love is a song
Then ours must be Maui chimes
It’s just as sweet, but very strong
To last for a long, long time

If island life goes by slowly
Then we will never complain
Gives time to play music lowly
That is always love’s refrain

If island love is a song
Then we’re birds of a feather
Let’s you and I stroll along
And the music will keep us together

We won’t worry about days ahead
Time itself is on our side
Since the first day from when we wed
Our love is as sure as the tide

If island love is a song
Then ours must be Maui chimes
It’s just as sweet, but very strong
To last for a long, long time



Golden Yellow (Larry W. Jones 01/22/2004) (song#2541)

The tropic moon was golden yellow
A shy Aloha brought us together
The mood was warm and oh, so mellow
And so I asked as to whether
I might see you again

The tropic moon was golden yellow
As the strings of my heart were strung
I felt like a fortunate fellow
After love’s sweet song was sung
Such a mellow love refrain

That shy Aloha salutation
Started a deeper conversation
It would keep us up for the duration
Of the golden yellow tropic moon

The tropic moon is golden yellow
Now here we are under stars above
The mood is warm and oh, so mellow
Just like that night we fell in love
Underneath the golden yellow tropic moon

That shy Aloha salutation
Started a deeper conversation
It would keep us up for the duration
Of the golden yellow tropic moon

The tropic moon is golden yellow
Now here we are under stars above
The mood is warm and oh, so mellow
Just like that night we fell in love
Underneath the golden yellow tropic moon



Hidden Heart (Larry W. Jones 01/22/2004) (song#2542)

I kissed your sweet lips tonight
But I missed finding your heart
It was bliss with your charms tonight
But I missed finding your heart

With a sweet isle refrain
I tried my best to win you
But after awhile it was plain
You kept your heart within you

Deep into your polynesian eyes
I peered with ultimate care
Trying to find my paradise
But I couldn’t find it there

Well, it’s been a lovely isle scene
But darling, before I depart
Please, won’t you come clean
And tell me where you’ve hidden your heart

With a sweet isle refrain
I tried my best to win you
But after awhile it was plain
You kept your heart within you

Well, it’s been a lovely isle scene
But darling, before I depart
Please, won’t you come clean
And tell me where you’ve hidden your heart



Saving For A Sunny Day (Larry W. Jones 01/22/2004) (song#2543)

I’ve been saving all my love
My friends are calling me a miser
Saving for the only one I’m dreaming of
Don’t need a financial advisor

Been saving for a sunny day
To meet my honey at an island hideaway
Buy a wedding ring where breezes play
I just need her finger to size her

I’ll buy her a locket full of moonbeams
To go with my pocket full of star light
I’ve got a whole chest full of sweet dreams
She’ll be dressed in themes of tropical delight

From my heart strings I hear music stealing
Songs of love meant just for her
My heart sings with tender feeling
Which renders love so true that I confer

I’ll buy her a locket full of moonbeams
To go with my pocket full of star light
I’ve got a whole chest full of sweet dreams
She’ll be dressed in themes of tropical delight

I’ve bought a little cottage by the sea shore
Whittled her name above the door
I’ve filled it full of love and laughter
For the one I’ll love hereafer ever more



Longer Than I Can Live (Larry W. Jones 01/22/2004) (song#2544)

Baby, I want to love you
For just as long as I’ve got love to give
A lifetime won’t be long enough, it’s true
So, I’ll just love you longer than I can live

Baby, I want to buy for you
Moonbeams and starlight and things I can’t afford
I’ll save for a lifetime if I have to
To love you longer than I’ll live is my reward

Baby, I’ve been thinking of a change of pace
I’ll live longer if I’m out of this rat race
I know a little island where Aloha love’s embraced
Where I can love you longer than I’ll live

I’ll put on my sunscreen when I’m in the sun
We’ll stroll among the moonbeams when the day is done
Make the time go slower while we’re having fun
So I can love you longer than I’ll live

Baby, I want to love you
For just as long as I’ve got love to give
A lifetime won’t be long enough, it’s true
So, I’ll just love you longer than I can live

A lifetime won’t be long enough, it’s true
So, I’ll just love you longer than I can live



Hiding Somewhere (Larry W. Jones 01/22/2004) (song#2545)

You know I really love you
That’s why I’ve searched the island and the sea
I know you’re hiding somewhere in between
The windward side of the island and the lee

I asked you more than once to please forgive me
You’ve got me begging now, you see
I know you’re hiding somewhere in between
The windward side of the island and the lee

I’ve crisscrossed the island front to back
Even checked that little grassy shack
I can see the answer clear as white and black
I know you’re hiding somewhere in between
The windward side of the island and the lee

I guess I should forget about you
And call off this search indefinitely
But you know I really love you
I know you’re hiding somewhere in between
The windward side of the island and the lee



Sweetest Wine (Larry W. Jones 01/22/2004) (song#2546)

I promise that I will love you
Until the oceans run dry of foamy brine
I won’t try to place anyone above you
And I love you as lips love sweetest wine

I’m sure you knew from the day you met me
That my design wasn’t just to pass the time
And I hope that you won’t forget me
Cause I love you as lips love sweetest wine

This thing I have is not just a fling
I’m a king who’s got a lady in spring
There’s nothing shady or any such thing
I’m dreaming about you all the time
And I love you as lips love sweetest wine

On the isle we’ll be happy and smile
Every day where palms sway you’ll be mine
I can’t wait to stroll with you on the isle
Cause I love you as lips love sweetest wine

This thing I have is not just a fling
I’m a king who’s got a lady in spring
There’s nothing shady or any such thing
I’m dreaming about you all the time
And I love you as lips love sweetest wine



Return To You (Larry W. Jones 01/22/2004) (song#2547)

I don’t like aloha ‘oe, for it means goodbye
I never was too good at sailin’ time, not I
Don’t have a taste for wailin’ time, not me
I’d rather see you laugh than see you cry

You’ve always been my dear one, my near one
And I know that I could never find
Another love like yours underneath the sun
Be sure that I’ll return to you in time

Well, I hate to leave you here in paradise
Remember dear, if you look into other eyes
Be sure to tell him that you’re already mine
And be sure that I’ll return to you in time

You’ve always been my dear one, my near one
And I know that I could never find
Another love like yours underneath the sun
Be sure that I’ll return to you in time

I don’t like aloha ‘oe, for it means goodbye
But it’s sailin’ time and I hear the boarding chime
Well, I hate to leave you here in paradise
Darling, be sure that I’ll return to you in time
I’ll return to you in time



Where Is That Island (Larry W. Jones 01/22/2004) (song#2548)

For every man there’s an island
With an island woman in the plan
And I know that it’s been so
Ever since the world of man began
Island man, island woman by the sea
Where is that island
Where is that island woman meant for me

For every king there’s a queen
With lots of gold and everything
They have a castle with a moat
Don’t have to hassle with a boat
Island king, island queen by the sea
Where is that island
Where is that island queen meant for me

Take a gander at the tropic sun
Life will meander while you’re having fun
Find the one meant to be
Where is that island woman meant for me

For every love there’s a moment
Sometimes it takes a little hint
I’ve even heard an island turtle has a dove
Where’s that turtledove that’s meant for me

For every man there’s an island
With an island woman in the plan
And I know that it’s been so
Ever since the world of man began
Island man, island woman by the sea
Where is that island
Where is that island woman meant for me



Happiness Is (Larry W. Jones 01/22/2004) (song#2549)

It seems that happiness is where the tradewinds blow
There on the isle where sweet tuberoses grow
She’s got a way that makes the moonbeams sigh
Every time that moon man sees her strolling by

The weather there is never gloomy
She always has a flower in her hair
A special place for her is always roomy
For in my heart she’s always there

All my troubles fly away and island life is easy go
She knows that I love her so
She’s always in my dreams and so I know
It seems that happiness is where the tradewinds blow

The weather there is never gloomy
She always has a flower in her hair
A special place for her is always roomy
For in my heart she’s always there

It seems that happiness is where the tradewinds blow
There on the isle where sweet tuberoses grow
She’s got a way that makes the moonbeams sigh
Every time that moon man sees her strolling by

All my troubles fly away and island life is easy go
She knows that I love her so
She’s always in my dreams and so I know
It seems that happiness is where the tradewinds blow



Low Down Blues (Larry W. Jones 01/22/2004) (song#2550)

I feel like I gotta sing the blues
Even Dick Van Dyke would not refuse
I feel like I gotta feel low down
I’ve gotta stop this hangin’
Around in old Lahaina town

A certain girl in old Lahaina town
Says she don’t want me hangin’ around
Even turned her smile into a frown
All I can see here by the sea
For me, is low down misery

I feel like I gotta sing the blues
My poor heart is bruised, been abused
I feel like I gotta moan and sigh
This was gonna be my paradise
Here in old Lahaina town

Maui isle is sunk in the deep blue sea
I’m gonna dunk myself eternally
If a certain girl in old Lahaina town
Don’t stop draggin’ my poor heart down
And makin’ me feel like I gotta sing the blues
These misery feelin’ low down blues



Blow Tradewind (Larry W. Jones 01/22/2004) (song#2551)

Blow tradewind, blow this way
Bring me a love that won’t go away
Blow this way if you would
Bring me a love who’ll treat me good

Blow tradewind, blow this way
Bring me some paradise today
A pair of eyes and a heart not made of wood
Bring me a love who’ll treat me good

My heart’s been misled, underfed of love
Now, ain’t that a shame
Underneath the stars above there must be love
So why is my heart in such pain

Blow tradewind, blow this way
Bring me a love that won’t go away
Blow this way if you would
Bring me a love who’ll treat me good

Blow tradewind, blow this way
Bring me some paradise today
A pair of eyes and a heart not made of wood
Bring me a love who’ll treat me good

Blow tradewind, blow this way



Written In My Dreams (Larry W. Jones 01/22/2004) (song#2552)

I saw it written in my dreams
And dreams come true here by the sea
I saw it written in my dreams
And it seems my love for you will ever be

I’m sure they will bring us joy
For my dreams are as bright as the sun
Island girl and island boy
Island man and wife when we are one

I saw it written in my dreams
You by my side on island sands
I saw it written in my dreams
You have my heart within your hands

My dreams are from the realms above
Written on the moon and stars of love
My love and yours will be set free
From emptiness to ecstasy
I saw it written in my dreams
And dreams come true here by the sea

I saw it written in my dreams
You by my side on island sands
I saw it written in my dreams
You have my heart within your hands

I saw it written in my dreams



Replaced By Gold (Larry W. Jones 01/23/2004) (song#2553)

Yesterday when you and I were young
The island lay afar, underneath a star
It was like a song of love just begun
Island life was new, things went our way
A long time ago yesterday

Today when you and I have grown old
Youth has flown away, replaced by gold
It’s now the days of wine as they say
Island life is just as fine as those days
A long time ago yesterday

Think back to when a new spring came around
When you and I were young in old Lahaina town
Yesterday when you and I were young
It was like a song of love just begun

Now it’s time to sip our wine and reminisce
And think about those balmy nights of old
When island life was new, things went our way
Youth has flown away, replaced by gold
A long time ago yesterday

Yesterday when you and I were young
A long time ago yesterday



Meant For Love (Larry W. Jones 01/23/2004) (song#2554)

You and I were sent to each other
Otherwise we might as well be sister and brother
But love was meant for us to discover
That feeling I’m not concealing, so revealing
That you and I were meant for love

Yes, it’s you that I adore
Come stroll with me on this lover’s shore
Now don’t be stalling, the island’s calling
And that is why I can’t be shy
Cause you and I were meant for love

Our hearts sing of it, so it must be paradise
So, don’t be afraid of it, just close your eyes

There’s a lot that we don’t know
But we can try
There’s a lot of love where tradewinds blow
So, don’t be shy

You and I were sent to each other
Otherwise we might as well be sister and brother
But love was meant for us to discover
That feeling I’m not concealing, so revealing
That you and I were meant for love

Yes, it’s you that I adore
Come stroll with me on this lover’s shore
Now don’t be stalling, the island’s calling
And that is why I can’t be shy
Cause you and I were meant for love



This Moment So Fine (Larry W. Jones 01/23/2004) (song#2555)

This moment so fine didn’t take much time
But each moment with you was paradise
A song of rhymes and Maui chimes
And even if time itself must fly
This moment so fine will never die

It didn’t take much time
To place a flower behind your ear
It didn’t take much time
To stroll by the Aloha tower, dear
It was so sublime

Now the golden moon is shining above
And I’m holdin’ the hand of the girl I love
I’ll be pining again and dreaming of
This moment so fine

It didn’t take much time
To place a flower behind your ear
It didn’t take much time
To stroll by the Aloha tower, dear
It was so sublime

Now the golden moon is shining above
And I’m holdin’ the hand of the girl I love
I’ll be pining again and dreaming of
This moment so fine



This Moment So Fine (Larry W. Jones 01/23/2004) (song#2555)

You must be from an exotic island
Something went click when I looked at you
I heard music from an island band
A song of love that no mainland ever knew

You must be from a fairy tale book
About a wahini from a distant isle
All it took was just one look
For me to be enchanted by your smile

I’ve been waiting for a long time
No more hesitating now that you’re here
I think I hear again those Maui chimes
Just in time to hold you oh, so near

You must be from a fairy tale book
About a wahini from a distant isle
All it took was just one look
For me to be enchanted by your smile

You must be from an exotic island
Something went click when I looked at you
Let me pick the time to be your island man
And spend a lifetime on an exotic island
With you



Her Heart And Mine (Larry W. Jones 01/23/2004) (song#2557)

My heart must go on singing
Even though my heart has no springing
I don’t want to let her know

My sad heart will go on pretending
That it’s a glad heart which needs no mending
I can’t let the breaking show

I thought island love would be an easy game
But her heart and mine never beat quite the same

My heart must keep going to the dance
Even though I know it doesn’t stand a chance
Silly though it be

Should my heart show some dismay
She would know without a word to say
And that really bothers me

It was just an island dream
Lost somewhere in the stream
Something not supposed to be

My heart must go on singing
Even though my heart has no springing
I don’t want to let her know

My sad heart will go on pretending
That it’s a glad heart which needs no mending
I can’t let the breaking show

I thought island love would be an easy game
But her heart and mine never beat quite the same

Her heart and mine never beat quite the same



Someday In A Song (Larry W. Jones 01/23/2004) (song#2558)

Someday, somewhere on an isle
We’ll stroll the sand together, wait and see
In the tropic air, a smile is what we’ll wear
Someday this dream will come true for me

Someday, I will take her hand
While I tell her how we’ll love adoringly
We’ll have our wedding in the sand
Someday this dream will come true for me

We will have a lot of fun
And I’ll know that she’s my only one
Where tradewinds blow we’ll stroll along
Someday in a song of love

Island love will see us through
Through good and bad and times that’s blue
Someday I’ll find her love, you see
Someday this dream will come true for me

Someday, I will take her hand
While I tell her how we’ll love adoringly
We’ll have our wedding in the sand
Someday this dream will come true for me

We will have a lot of fun
And I’ll know that she’s my only one
Where tradewinds blow we’ll stroll along
Someday in a song of love



When A Rainbow Appears (Larry W. Jones 01/23/2004) (song#2559)

When a rainbow appears
And the rain quits falling from the skies
When a rainbow appears
Birds of paradise will cheer
They’ll be singing ’round my door
Winging by the shore like they did before

That ol’ typhoon came around
My island girl strolled out of town
Left me with no cheer and brokenhearted
It’s clear good times have parted
But I hope she won’t stay gone for long
I need a rainbow to appear

Island love sometimes is funny
She was peaches, cream and honey
It just teaches me that money
Can’t replace a love that disappears

When a rainbow appears
And the rain quits falling from the skies
When a rainbow appears
Birds of paradise will cheer
Then you’ll know she’s returned and heard my cries
Good times will be here, it’s clear
When a rainbow appears



Any Day (Larry W. Jones 01/23/2004) (song#2560)

Any day down by the bay
You’ll stroll away and say Aloha ‘oe goodbye
And I’ll be left to cry
When my beautiful bird of paradise flies away
Any day down by the bay
I’ll be strolling home alone

Any day I’ll hear her say
That she has found somebody new
Then twilight will fall in old Lahaina town
The night when tears will all come falling down
Any day down by the bay
I’ll be strolling with a frown

When my beautiful bird of paradise flies away
Any day down by the bay
I’ll be strolling home alone

Any day down by the bay
You’ll stroll away and say Aloha ‘oe goodbye
And I’ll be left to cry
When my beautiful bird of paradise flies away
Any day down by the bay
I’ll be strolling home alone

Any day down by the bay
I’ll be strolling home alone



Tropic Moon And Waikiki (Larry W. Jones 01/23/2004) (song#2561)

Somewhere on the isle is where you’ll find her
That special girl who’ll turn your head around
Next thing that goes where tradewinds blow
Will be your heart, you can’t keep it down

Next day you’ll still be thinking of her
Wondering if you’ll see her again in Waikiki

When you find your dream
Somewhere between the tropic moon and Waikiki
It might sound like a crazy scheme
But I sware it’s true

When you find your dream
Somewhere between the tropic moon and Waikiki
The only right thing for you to do
I sware it’s true
Is for you to fall in love

Somewhere on the isle is where you’ll find her
That special girl who’ll turn your head around
Next thing that goes where tradewinds blow
Will be your heart, you can’t keep it down

When you find your dream
Somewhere between the tropic moon and Waikiki
The only right thing for you to do
I sware it’s true
Is for you to fall in love



Message For Moana (Larry W. Jones 01/23/2004) (song#2562)

Go spread yor wings for island queens
Bird of paradise, fly away

And take this message for Moana
A message for Moana
She works her pretty life away
In a little island cafe
Searching for something inside to blame
As to why no one has changed her name

It’s been a month or more
Since she left for another shore
Bird of paradise, fly away

And take this message for Moana
A message for Moana
When she took the interisland ferry
She said she’d come back and we would marry

Let her know my heart is breaking
Since she left for another shore
Every day when I’m awaking
I find I love her more and more

Go spread yor wings for island queens
Bird of paradise, fly away
And take this message for Moana
A message for Moana
Tell her not to work her pretty life away
Come back to me, I’ll change her name

Fly away, bird of paradise
Bird of paradise, fly away



Leilani My Sunshine (Larry W. Jones 01/23/2004) (song#2563)

On an island of sunshine
On an island so warm
Under soft harbor lights
Safe from the storm
On an island of sunshine, there is a girl
Somewhere by the shore, whom I adore
Where tradewinds blow, someday I’ll find her, I know
Until then I’ll smile no more

Leilani, I’m blue
Leilani, can’t you see
My love is true, deep as the sea
I’m such a lonely boy without your charms
I won’t find any joy any day
Until I’m there in your arms

I may be a dreamer, but every dream
Is of some tropical zone
And it seems I’m hatching schemes
To find another star to wish upon
All I wish for is sunny weather
To make come true this dream in my heart
And that under the moon we’ll soon be together
Nevermore to part

Leilani, I’m blue
Leilani, can’t you see
My love is true, deep as the sea
I’m such a lonely boy without your charms
I won’t find any joy any day
Until I’m there in your arms

Please ease my pain, end the rain
Bring back the sun
Let me hear again, love’s sweet refrain
Leilani, you are my sunshine and my sun



Talk Story (Larry W. Jones 01/23/2004) (song#2564)

Someday I’m gonna file
The talk story of this isle
I’ll walk them through the tropic moon
And all those stars I can’t forget
When we met that night in June

The whole island world will know
The talk story of this isle
Where tradewinds blow, your lips like wine
The glow was oh, so fine
When you said that you’d be mine

Then there was sorrow in our romance
A token glance, broken heart
Then I took a chance, another dance
And never more will we ever part

There’s one more thing I’ve gotta do
To make my talk story true
Tell them all that you’re now my wife
The island’s call changed my life
The talk story of this isle
Is now on file with me and you

Then there was sorrow in our romance
A token glance, broken heart
Then I took a chance, another dance
And never more will we ever part

There’s one more thing I’ve gotta do
To make my talk story true
Tell them all that you’re now my wife
The island’s call changed my life
The talk story of this isle
Is now on file
Is now on file with me and you



Only Of You (Larry W. Jones 01/23/2004) (song#2565)

Birds of paradise appear
From the skies just to be near
Here in Hawaii blue, it’s true
They sing only of you

Stars in paradise shine bright
From the skies every night
Here in Hawaii blue, it’s true
They shine only for you

On one bright and sunny morn
The angels said when you were born
She will be the sweetest rose in paradise
So they made the moonlight soft and warm
Just right to shine upon your charms
And starlight in your polynesian eyes

Now all the guys in old Lahaina town
Want to stroll with you when you’re around
Here in Hawaii blue, it’s true
They only dream of you

On one bright and sunny morn
The angels said when you were born
She will be the sweetest rose in paradise
So they made the moonlight soft and warm
Just right to shine upon your charms
And starlight in your polynesian eyes

Now all the guys in old Lahaina town
Want to stroll with you when you’re around
Here in Hawaii blue, it’s true
They only dream of you

Here in Hawaii blue, it’s true
They only dream of you



Boats And Ships (Larry W. Jones 01/23/2004) (song#2566)

Boats and ships are sailing by
Hailing from the west or eastern climes
Sailing endlessly, but not returning you to me
Boats and ships are sailing by
That took you from my island in the sea

You and I were so in love
Up high above, moonbeams to ride on
I guess some dreams still do come true
But for me, they’ll only be gone
Boats and ships are sailing by
That took you from my island in the sea

You said that you must see the world
I couldn’t hold you back, and now it’s been
I’ve lost track
Since you promised to return again
I’ve been waiting for awhile
Here on my lonely isle
For boats and ships to come sailing in

Boats and ships are sailing by
And every time I always cry
Constantly my prayers I send across the sea
That boats and ships will hear my hopes
And return you to my island home and me



Island Music Never Ends (Larry W. Jones 01/23/2004) (song#2567)

I hear island music playing
From across the sea so wide and vast
Aloha love is what it’s saying
And I know our love will last

I lost my heart to someone
There by a peaceful bay
Her beauty can’t be undone
That’s all there is to say

There’s nothing that needs changing
Except, of course, her name
For that I’ll be arranging
A wedding complete with tiki flames

I hear island music playing
From across the sea it lends
Harmony with Aloha words now saying
We’ll be lovers, best of friends

There’s nothing that needs changing
Except, of course, her name
For that I’ll be arranging
A wedding complete with tiki flames

Over where the tradewind blows
Is where I intend
To make sure that she well knows
Our island music never ends



Hawaii Has The Music (Larry W. Jones 01/23/2004) (song#2568)

Hawaii has the music
Music of the hula dancers
Hawaii has the dreams
That come true when it answers

I leave a part of my soul there
Each time I stroll away somewhere
But when I’m back within its charms
Hawaii smiles, and then
I’m back home on my isle again

Cause Hawaii is my destiny
Hawaii’s always there for me
Hawaii is my destiny
The island always cares for me

No destiny is sweeter
Pineapples, luau poi eater
I fall in love every time
I hear those sweet Maui chimes

Cause Hawaii is my destiny
Hawaii’s always there for me
Hawaii is my destiny
The island always cares for me

I leave a part of my soul there
Each time I stroll away somewhere
But when I’m back within its charms
Hawaii smiles, and then
I’m back home on my isle again



You Wear Love (Larry W. Jones 01/24/2004) (song#2569)

Like moonbeams on an island shore
Tuberoses kissed by morning dew
Like tropic sunlight, who could ask for more
You wear love so well, you do

Like children playing in a new canoe
Ala Moana park listening to kiho’alu
Your beauty is always showing through
You wear love so well, you do

I see starlight in your polynesian eyes
A bright hibiscus in your long black hair
You look like you’re from paradise
Love is the one thing you will always wear

And here’s one thing I’d never replace
That smile that clings to your lovely face
I think you can tell that I love you
You wear love so well, you do

Like moonbeams on an island shore
Tuberoses kissed by morning dew
Like tropic sunlight, who could ask for more
You wear love so well, you do

And here’s one thing I’d never replace
That smile that clings to your lovely face
I think you can tell that I love you
You wear love so well, you do



Slow And Easy (Larry W. Jones 01/24/2004) (song#2570)

A dream can come on tiptoe
Island love is where it starts
There it will reside
Doesn’t need to hide
Within two happy hearts

And just as Mauna Kea became a mountain
Rising from the sea
Let’s take it slow and easy
Island love begins with you and me

Every day the sun arises
To bless the golden shore
And every night the moon advises
That I love you even more

I don’t need to be a hero
I like the island’s quiet days
Here where tradewinds blow
I would never change your ways

And just as Mauna Kea became a mountain
Rising from the sea
Let’s take it slow and easy
Island love begins with you and me

Every day the sun arises
To bless the golden shore
And every night the moon advises
That I love you even more



Moon Over Maui (Larry W. Jones 01/29/2004) (song#2571)

Moon over Maui
Shine your beams of love on the sea
And on my love and me
Moon over Maui
Shine your moonbeams for all to see

Moon over Maui
Shine soft as an island violin
Within her heart like a friend
Moon over Maui
Help make this dream one that never ends

Listen to the songs of the island troubadours
Listen to the slack key koa guitars
Listen to the breakers thunder applause
As our love reaches for the stars

Moon over Maui
You’re just what I’ve been waiting for
Moonlight romance by the sea
Here on Maui’s golden shore

Moon over Maui
Shine soft as an island violin
Within her heart like a friend
Moon over Maui
Help make this dream one that never ends

Moon over Maui
You’re just what I’ve been waiting for
Moonlight romance by the sea
Here on Maui’s golden shore



Lei Of Flowers Blue (Larry W. Jones 01/30/2004) (song#2572)

Far away on sunny islands
Where the tropical rainbows play
There I strolled through golden sand
Singing to an island maid

She was fairer than the fairest
I ever saw or ever knew
And in her hair she wore the rarest
Fragrant lei of flowers blue

But time said that we must part
Before the harvest moon came ’round
That fair island maid is in my heart
With songs of love that still resound

She was all I ever dreamed of
The islands call to one I knew
She wore a garland with a theme of
Fragrant lei of flowers blue

She was fairer than the fairest
I ever saw or ever knew
And in her hair she wore the rarest
Fragrant lei of flowers blue



Gossamer Wings (Larry W. Jones 01/30/2004) (song#2573)

The tropic sun is sinking fast
Where shorebirds gaily run
Over on the isle in oceans vast
Dreams of my return have just begun

Listen to that island band
Songs of love in golden sand
They carry me away on gossamer wings
To my dear old island home
They carry me away on gossamer wings
To my dear old island home

Oh, take my longing heart to her
There by the peaceful sea
And let me feel the way we were
When she strolled the sand with me

Listen to that island band
Songs of love in golden sand
They carry me away on gossamer wings
To my dear old island home
They carry me away on gossamer wings
To my dear old island home

I long to return to my island home
My heart does fairly sing
Never more will I ever roam
When I return on gossamer wings

Listen to that island band
Songs of love in golden sand
They carry me away on gossamer wings
To my dear old island home
They carry me away on gossamer wings
To my dear old island home



Dream And Wonder (Larry W. Jones 01/30/2004) (song#2574)

My true love is over yonder
Beneath the swaying tall palm trees
I often dream and wonder
If she still remembers me

Oh, let me stroll once more beside her
For she meant all the world to me
Oh, let me hold and gently kiss her
On her island in the sea

Yes, I left before I told her
That my love for her was true
Now for her my heart does stir
When my dreams are colored blue

Oh, let me stroll once more beside her
For she meant all the world to me
Oh, let me hold and gently kiss her
On her island in the sea

My true love is over yonder
Beneath the swaying tall palm trees
I often dream and wonder
If she still remembers me

I often dream and wonder
If she still remembers me



Never Tire Of You (Larry W. Jones 01/30/2004) (song#2575)

I could never tire of you, my darling
If I lived forever and a day
For I meant those vows on islands calling
And they will never fade away

If I had to do it over
I would not think otherwise
I could never be a rover
From your polynesian eyes

I remember it was springtime
When you and I first met
I held your hand while Maui chimes
Played love songs I can’t forget

If I had to do it over
I would not think otherwise
I could never be a rover
From your polynesian eyes

That fair bloom has not departed
From your cheeks so warm and fair
I could never be cold hearted
With the love we have to share

If I had to do it over
I would not think otherwise
I could never be a rover
From your polynesian eyes



Lovely Island (Larry W. Jones 01/30/2004) (song#2576)

She said she would be my sweetheart
Sometimes I wonder just why
For I left her there with dreams torn apart
On her island of paradise

Lovely island over the sea, over the sea
Lovely island over the sea
Lovely island over the sea, over the sea
There someone is waiting for me

Friends say go on a-courting
But there’s no good in it for me
For my heart is still resorting
To that girl far over the sea

Lovely island over the sea, over the sea
Lovely island over the sea
Lovely island over the sea, over the sea
There someone is waiting for me

I must return to be faithful
I must prove my love is true
I must show that I’m grateful
To that girl that I once knew

Lovely island over the sea, over the sea
Lovely island over the sea
Lovely island over the sea, over the sea
There someone is waiting for me



Singing Of You (Larry W. Jones 01/30/2004) (song#2577)

Tropic moonlight last night was shining
Shining on the island shore
I strolled there alone, my heart pining
For the girl that I so adore

I heard Maui chimes a-ringing
Out among the palm trees anew
And birds of paradise, my darling
Were singing love songs of you

Maui chimes were ringing
Ringing for you, my darling
They were ringing, ringing for you
And birds of paradise were singing
Singing of you, my darling
They were singing of you, singing of you

I think of you in the daytime
And my dreams are of you at night
Moonlight calls you here, my darling
While tears fall out of sight

Tuberoses slumber for you, my darling
Like sweet dreams that I once knew
Stars in the heavens are sparkling
I know they’re there just for you

Maui chimes were ringing
Ringing for you, my darling
They were ringing, ringing for you
And birds of paradise were singing
Singing of you, my darling
They were singing of you, singing of you



Died For Love (Larry W. Jones 01/30/2004) (song#2578)

It’s true that vows should have no end
But life doesn’t allow us to comphehend
I thought that I had found love so true
But she strolls around with someone new

Bring back Leilani, my love, to me
Bring back Leilani, my love, to me
Bring back Leilani, my love
Return to me whom I’m dreaming of

In old Lahaina town I can’t be free
I’m bound to someone who doesn’t love me
Why can’t I just let depart
The love of that girl who broke my heart

Sweet Leilani last year promised me
She’d be my love here by the sea
Now that she’s gone, I’m all alone
Here in this paradise island home

When I die, bury me six feet deep
And tell sweet Leilani not to weep
But on my grave paint a snow white dove
And tell sweet Leilani I died for her love



Starlight Island Serenade (Larry W. Jones 01/30/2004) (song#2579)

Standing by your cottage gate
An island song I hear begin
And I can hardly wait
To feel your hand in mine again

For my heart is surely flying
This starlit night for which I prayed
Tuberoses are sweetly sighing
A starlight island serenade

The stars above all know
That we need their twinkling light
Here where soft breezes blow
An island serenade will come tonight

Starlight is made for dreaming
My love, I’m sure you know
And for us they’re up there beaming
A starlight island serenading show

Let’s stroll until the early morn
I’ll hold you ‘neath tall palm trees
An island starlight serenade is being born
Here by the gently rolling seas

Don’t let me wait by your cottage gate
Let me hold you tenderly
A starlight island serenade will surely make
A love that lasts eternally



More Than Emotion (Larry W. Jones 01/31/2004) (song#2580)

I woke up this morning to the tropic sun
Tuned my radio to K-POI 97.5
My favorite sad song had just begun
Drifted back to sleep tryin’ to survive

It’s more than just emotion
With that song of lost devotion that they play
(More than just emotion)
I start dreaming by the ocean
(More than just emotion)
When I see Leilani stroll away
I see my Leilani strolling away

So many months have come and gone
It’s no paradise bein’ alone
New faces come and then wander on
But Leilani’s face I ponder on my own

It’s more than just emotion
With that song of lost devotion that they play
(More than just emotion)
I start dreaming by the ocean
(More than just emotion)
When I see Leilani stroll away
I see my Leilani strolling away

When I’m weary and feeling worn
I turn my favorite sad song on
And dream of Leilani where tradewinds blow
When I close my eyes, she strolls away
She strolls away, my Leilani strolls away

It’s more than just emotion
With that song of lost devotion that they play
(More than just emotion)
I start dreaming by the ocean
(More than just emotion)
When I see Leilani stroll away
I see my Leilani strolling away



More Than A Wahini (Larry W. Jones 01/31/2004) (song#2581)

She’s an island girl I know so well
A little wahini strollin’ by the bay
But not til recently could I tell
That she’s swept my feet and heart away

All of a sudden I see the light
She’s part of everything I do
She’s got me dreamin’ both day and night
It seems overnight is how fast she grew

When she’s in my arms, I’m in paradise
She’s the reason why I’m happy here
If I lost her charms, I would surely die
The sun shines at night when she appears

She’s more than a wahini
Much more than a little wahini
She’s more than a wahini
Much more than a little wahini to me

There’s old island talk stories, most are true
Of island boys and girls in love like her and me
And I can see us here in Hawaii blue
Being a part of repeating history

She’s more than a wahini
Much more than a little wahini
She’s more than a wahini
Much more than a little wahini to me



A Tropic Island (Larry W. Jones 01/31/2004) (song#2582)

There’s got to be a tropic island somewhere
If I can just sail on through this night
I’ll be lookin’ at that tropic sunshine
If I can just keep on sailin’ til daylight

Oh, I know there’s a tropic island somewhere
On a new horizon beyond the storm
My island love and I will be together
Strolling in the sand with breezes warm

First mate says we should be arriving
If this old ship a few more breakers climb
I pray it’s not too late to be surviving
So I can see my love and hear those Maui chimes

There’s got to be a tropic island somewhere
We should be abeam of a tropic shore
I pray I’ll be there to hear her laughter
And I won’t be sailin’ away any more

There’s got to be a tropic island somewhere
Got to be a tropic island somewhere
Got to be a tropic island somewhere
And I won’t be sailin’ away any more



My Song Of Love (Larry W. Jones 01/31/2004) (song#2583)

Well, let me tell you about this thing
About the reason why I sing

I’m so in love with my island woman
She said yes when I showed the ring
I show her respect and she comforts me
She’s more than just a wonderful island thing

She’s my song of love on the tropic air
She’s my island woman and I know she cares for me

I was always searching for a number ten
She’s more than that again within her heart
I can’t believe that way back when
I overlooked an island angel from the start

From the first time I looked into her eyes
I saw a picture of my paradise
And something else I could not deny
I knew I would love her until I die

She’s my song of love on the tropic air
She’s my island woman and I know she cares for me

Some things are priceless and beyond compare
She’s my song of love on the tropic air
Her lovely smile makes my life worthwhile
And just knowing that her love is there

She’s my song of love on the tropic air
She’s my island woman and I know she cares for me



Love For The Islands (Larry W. Jones 02/01/2004) (song#2584)

Sunshine has broken
First light of morning
The bluebird has spoken
Today is worthwhile
Love in its fair singing
No sorrow or mourning
Sweet chimes are now ringing
On Maui isle

The island’s soft calling
Words never harden
Dew is still falling
On roses in bloom
Love for all showing
Reposing in gardens
Tradewinds are blowing
Sweet scent of perfume

Here is my sunshine
Here is my morning
Another of God’s signs
Love still holds sway
Love for the islands
Aloha was born here
Love for the islands
On this new day



Mornings Are Gold (Larry W. Jones 02/01/2004) (song#2585)

Mornings are gold in old Lahaina town
Old merchants roll their gold awnings down
Old whalers sail their old ships around
In old Lahaina town

Gold are old skies painted by the sun
Old folks arise for morning island fun
Everyone is yawning when the day is young
In old Lahaina town

Good morning old Lahaina town
We’ll buy your dreams for a dollar down
Mornings are gold and the sand is brown
In old Lahaina town

On Maui isle, we will have it made
What I mean is hinano and lemonade
While we watch the tourists on parade
In old Lahaina town

Wahinis in island styles smashing
Even old stop lights commence flashing
Old shopkeepers at registers dashing
In old Lahaina town

Old is new like new is too
Golden words I have for you
I love you are words that’s been around
As long as there’s been old Lahaina town

Good morning old Lahaina town
We’ll buy your dreams for a dollar down
Mornings are gold and the sand is brown
In old Lahaina town



A Smile Away (Larry W. Jones 02/01/2004) (song#2586)

There lived a wahini and an island boy
They never met at a luau or shared the poi
For she lived on the leeward side of the isle
And he lived on the windward side

Never did they meet, never did they kiss
Never did they know what they had missed
For she lived on the leeward side of the isle
And he lived on the windward side

Island love can be as sweet as a tuberose
But it won’t grow without the morning dew
Every island boy must meet his wahini joy
To find a love that makes a dream come true

Now you and I are made just that way
How would we know love is just a smile away
For you live on the leeward side of the isle
And I live on the windward side

Island love can be as sweet as a tuberose
But it won’t grow without the morning dew
Every island boy must meet his wahini joy
To find a love that makes a dream come true

Now you and I are made just that way
How would we know love is just a smile away
For you live on the leeward side of the isle
And I live on the windward side



Because Of Your Love (Larry W. Jones 02/04/2004) (song#2587)

Even though the seasons change, my love
The reasons never do
The islands exchange, my love
All of my dreams for you

The years have passed on by
But few tears have we known
Rainbows bring cheer to skies
Where our love lingers on

The day comes in, the day goes out
Just like the tide, so sure and true
I have succumbed to love, no doubt
My heart goes out to you

Time seems to always fly
Like dreams that come and go
But we’re a team and that is why
Maui chimes ring sweet and low

Let the world itself grow cold
I don’t care if it does because
You’re my girl made of gold
And our love will never pause

Our love is as fresh as new
Warm islands calls to me and you
A song of love for only two
Year in, year out, it’s true

Because of your love
Because of your love
Because of your love



I Dream Of You (Larry W. Jones 02/05/2004) (song#2588)

My sweet Leilani, sweet as island sugar cane
My sweet Leilani, as far away as an aeroplane
My sweet Leilani, strolling by the sandy shore
You’re the candy my heart is craving for
I dream of you all the time

Sometimes in Waikiki on Kuhio street
I’ve strolled by you and wished that you were mine
My sweet Leilani, it’s you that I implore
Could I buy for you a flower like the one you wore
I dream of you all the time

That sweet island miss has got my heart in chains
It’s always bliss to see her strolling by again

Maybe sometime you’ll see me on Kuhio street
Maybe sometime you’ll see my heart is at your feet
My sweet Leilani, strolling by the sandy shore
You’re the candy my heart is craving for
I dream of you all the time



My Foolhardy Heart (Larry W. Jones 02/05/2004) (song#2589)

How golden is the tropic moon
Take care my foolhardy heart
How bolden plays the island tune
So unfair to my foolhardy heart

Is this love or just infatuation
There’s no clear line for times like this
But it’s not just merely the fine location
Lost on an island in the magic of a kiss

Our lips are getting closer, that’s for sure
Take care my foolhardy heart
An island is a great composer, a magic lure
That makes the tiki torches start

How golden is the tropic moon
Take care my foolhardy heart
How bolden plays the island tune
So unfair to my foolhardy heart

But this time it’s not infatuation
From some celestial dreamer’s chart
It’s island love, true island love
For my foolhardy heart



So Deep And Wide (Larry W. Jones 02/05/2004) (song#2590)

The ocean is so deep and wide
And you’re still my friend, so I confide
You know all lands and every shore
There are no sands you don’t explore

You send waves rolling on their merry way
And tides run high and low through every bay
Please send out for me to your seven seas
Oh, where is my love, I beg upon my knees

You’re still my friend, true friend to me
To my love attend, apprehend for me someday
You’re still my friend, be true to me
For on your waves my love sailed far away

The ocean is so deep and wide
Sometimes it makes hearts unite
Sometimes it makes hearts divide
Oh, where is my lover’s heart tonight

The ocean is so deep and wide
Please be my friend and turn the tide
And bring my only love here to my side
Bring my only love here to my side



My Tradewind Friend (Larry W. Jones 02/05/2004) (song#2591)

My tradewind friend comes from the sea
When daylight comes, again he wakens me
My tradewind friend has secrets which he tells
He tells to me, secrets he tells to me

My tradewind friend comes from the ocean
He whispers words of love with deep emotion
My tradewind friend comes from a tropic zone
He tells me alone, secrets he tells to me alone

I’ll hear my lover’s voice with whispered words
That the tradewind brings from Moanalua
Sweet are the kisses blown from Kailua Kona
Soft as moonbeams is my Luana
La la la

A dream we’ll share when I’m in Moanalua
Blue are skies of paradise in Kailua Kona
I will never say goodbye to my Luana
La la la

My tradewind friend comes from the sea
When daylight comes, again he wakens me
My tradewind friend has secrets which he tells
He tells to me, secrets he tells to me

I’ll hear her whispering sweet words
On the tradewind from Moanalua
Sweet are the kisses blown from Kailua Kona
Soft as moonbeams is my Luana

La la la, Moanalua
La la la, Kailua Kona
La la la, my Luana



Always Remind Me (Larry W. Jones 02/06/2004) (song#2592)

Can you hear the sound of island music
That’s my and your kind of music
That’s why it kind of reminds me of you

Can you smell the fragrance of tuberoses
I know it’s your favorite island roses
That’s why too, it reminds me of you

If we heard no island music at all
If there were no fragrant tuberoses
No balmy nights in Hawaii blue
I’d still hear the islands call
For the music there still discloses
One thing that will always be true
For my heart will always remind me
Aloha, I love you

If we heard no island music at all
If there were no fragrant tuberoses
No balmy nights in Hawaii blue
I’d still hear the islands call
For the music there still discloses
One thing that will always be true
For my heart will always remind me
Aloha, I love you



My Sweet Island Girl (Larry W. Jones 02/06/2004) (song#2593)

The highlight, the twilight is calling me
It’s delight, tiki torch light for you and me
I’m fishing, just wishing for a reason to close my eyes
For out of my dreams your sweet vision flies

While moonbeams are creeping through tropic nights
The topic, kaleidoscopic dreams come into sight
They’re gleaming their beaming rays all for me
For out of my dreams your sweet face I see

My sweet island girl, my sweet island girl
In dreams I seem to have control of your heart
The highlight, the twilight is calling me
But oh, the daylight, the bright light
Is always stalling, you see

I want you, I need you, I love you so
If I should awaken, I would be shaken
If my dreams be mistaken, I know
I’ll never ask why for, why I sigh for
Sweet dreams that ulfurl for
My sweet island girl



Rose So Fair (Larry W. Jones 02/06/2004) (song#2594)

Oh my island rose so fair
The sweetest where tradewinds blow
Royalty of all the roses
Where the sweetest island roses grow

You’re the tropic sun in my life
So beautiful and rare
I’ll be so happy when you’re my wife
My island rose so fair

The sun shines down upon the grass
On her lovely island over there
I strolled hand in hand with my sweet lass
My island rose so fair

At night the stars can’t be outdone
As they sprinkle stardust in her hair
And the heart of her I’ve won
My island rose so fair

As we strolled down by the shore
I told her what was on my mind
She said she wanted to hear more
And I knew our hearts were intertwined

So, I say Aloha ‘oe to all who can’t compare
For one has warmed my heart just like the sun
My island rose so fair



I Saw My Shadow (Larry W. Jones 02/06/2004) (song#2595)

I saw my shadow
Strolling down Kalakaua avenue
I saw my shadow
Looking for someone to tell his troubles to

Then I heard the clock strike twelve
I saw my shadow stroll back home
Nobody was there to help
Just me and my shadow all alone
All alone in Hawaii blue

I saw my shadow
Strolling down Kalakaua avenue
I saw my shadow
Looking for someone to tell his troubles to

Then I heard the clock strike twelve
I saw my shadow stroll back home
Nobody was there to help
Just me and my shadow all alone
All alone in Hawaii blue



Old Lahaina Lullaby (Larry W. Jones 02/06/2004) (song#2596)

 

As evening breezes come around
In old Lahaina town
I hold you in my arms
And look upon all your charms
Now close your eyes and rest your feet
And let all worries pass you by
While evening breezes whisper a sweet
Old Lahaina lullaby

Sweetheart, I’m so in love with you
And Maui isle is too
If I had all things my way
Right here is where we’d stay
Now close your eyes while my heart beats
And let all worries pass you by
While evening breezes whisper a sweet
Old Lahaina lullaby

As evening breezes come around
In old Lahaina town
I hold you to my beating breast
And my love for you confess
Now close your eyes while our hearts meet
And let all worries pass you by
While evening breezes whisper a sweet
Old Lahaina lullaby

Sweetheart, I’m so in love with you
And Maui isle is too
If I had all things my way
Right here is where we’d stay
Now close your eyes while my heart beats
And let all worries pass you by
While evening breezes whisper a sweet
Old Lahaina lullaby



I Am Hawai’i Nei (Larry W. Jones 02/06/2004) (song#2597)

I am Hawai’i nei
I know for what you endeavor
I am the islands of yesterday
I am Hawai’i nei forever

I am Hawai’i nei
Always kind I have been to you
Here you will find the Aloha way
Where ohana love is true

Gentle tradewinds seem to blow here endlessly
Come dream and grow and fall in love with me

I am Hawai’i nei
Come rest within my bowers
Stroll by my peaceful bays
And among my lovely flowers

I am Hawai’i nei
My waters will enchant you
Come to where palm trees sway
And grant your heart a love that’s true

Gentle tradewinds seem to blow here endlessly
Come dream and grow and fall in love with me

I am Hawai’i nei
Islands all lovers are dreaming of
Come to me with schemes to stay
I am Hawai’i nei, islands of love



Little Hula Grass Skirt (Larry W. Jones 02/06/2004) (song#2598)

She was wearing a little hula grass skirt
Strolling by my little grass shack in Maui
Eating fish and poi, isle dessert
And she didn’t say Aloha ‘oe

Now with her little hula grass skirt
She decorates our little grass shack in Maui
For she agreed to marry and convert
The rest of her life to Maui wowee

A lonely Hawaiian boy had found no joy
Until she strolled along with her hula song
And when she caught his eye, me oh my
It was no surprise to find joy in paradise

She was wearing a little hula grass skirt
Strolling by my little grass shack in Maui
In her little hula grass skirt and my Aloha shirt
Now we’re singing lullabys by the sea



Moon Over Hilo Bay (Larry W. Jones 02/06/2004) (song#2599)

Like a picture of a paradise photograph
A palm lined beach falls in the moonlight’s path
Outrigger canoes on the waves are seen
With a big tropic moon to light the scene
End of a picture perfect day at Hilo bay

Over the big island it hovers around
Moonbeams cover quaint little towns
Where Hawaiian songs and steel guitars play
Working their magic under tropic stars
Just blame it on the moon over Hilo bay

Lovers stroll along in the balmy air
Listening to music with an island flair
When the setting sun in the west will say
Best the moon now shine over Hilo bay

Shadows of love show in lovers eyes
On the big island under velvet skies
Old talk stories of legends and history
Are full of island love and mystery they say
Written across the moon over Hilo bay

Blame it on the moon over Hilo bay
Let’s stroll under the moon over Hilo bay
Let’s fall in love under the moon over Hilo bay
On the big island where love holds sway
Under the moon over Hilo bay



Twenty Six Hundred (Larry W. Jones 02/06/2004) (song#2600)

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

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