Raiatea Moon
(Larry W. Jones 02/07/2004) (song#2601)

Far away below the horizon line
Lie polynesian islands so sublime
Tahaa, Huahini and Raiatea are their names
And the Raiatea moon is one of fame

There on the shore I strolled with an island miss
And there amid the lore I stole the sweetest kiss
Now I must return, and very soon
To the one for whom I yearn and the Raiatea moon

Raiatea moon, I’ll return to you
Raiatea moon, tell her I have been true
I’ll sail to her some sunny afternoon
Then we’ll stroll again ‘neath the Raiatea moon

Far away below the horizon line
I once knew a girl who said she would be mine
A polynesian miss, a night in the month of June
Oh, how I miss her kiss and the Raiatea moon

Raiatea moon, I’ll return to you
Raiatea moon, tell her I have been true
I’ll sail to her some sunny afternoon
Then we’ll stroll again ‘neath the Raiatea moon



My Dream (Larry W. Jones 02/07/2004) (song#2602)

My dream is to stroll with you
Hand in hand by a lovely bay
On an isle that’s devine

My dream is on an island with you
In a world where palm trees sway
And feel your lips meeting mine
Tonight where soft tradewinds blow
My heart is aglow with words you must know

My dream can come true if you give
All your love and have my name
For you’re the reason I live
And you are always the theme
In the midst of my dream

My dream is on an island with you
In a world where palm trees sway
And feel your lips meeting mine
Tonight where soft tradewinds blow
My heart is aglow with words you must know

My dream can come true if you give
All your love and have my name
For you’re the reason I live
And you are always the theme
In the midst of my dream



Island Music (Larry W. Jones 02/07/2004) (song#2603)

Island music
I sing to you my island music
In a merry symphony by the sea
I hope you like the sound of my
Island music

I saw you strolling and my knees were weak
I could hardly find three words to speak
So I wrote down what you mean to me in
Island music

I’ll sing to you what I’m wishing for
From old talk stories and island lore
That still sound upon this golden shore in
Island music

Just stroll here beside me
With your hand dear, in mine
Through a land that’s not make believe
Island music has conceived it’s design

I saw you glancing enchantingly my way
You smiled so happy, carefree and gay
I knew that once I took your hand
That you and I would understand
Island music

I knew that once I took your hand
That you and I would understand
Island music



My Island Gal (Larry W. Jones 02/07/2004) (song#2604)

Well, if you see a pretty island thing
Sportin’ a brand new engagement ring
And lookin’ like she oughta be a queen
You’re lookin’ at my island gal

And if her eyes are polynesian
And they look so very pleasin’
And you wish it was her you’re squeezin’
You’re lookin’ at my island gal

Well, if she looks as sweet as sugar cane
And your heart beats so you can’t explain
I’ll just tell you once again
She’s my gal in this tropical locale

If you see us by the rolling sea
And she’s strolling hand in hand with me
Well, who else could it be
You’re lookin’ at my island gal

If you see us by the rolling sea
And she’s strolling hand in hand with me
Well, who else could it be
You’re lookin’ at my island gal



The Only Thang (Larry W. Jones 02/07/2004) (song#2605)

My dream doesn’t need rainbows in the sky
My dream doesn’t need tradewinds blowing by
No balmy month of June, no palmy isle afar
No big yellow moon or calming steel guitars

My dream doesn’t need a plantation growing cane
A location where the sun shines through the rain
The sweet refrain that makes my dream come true
Well, the only thang I need, babe, is you

No, my dream doesn’t need all those things
My dream will succeed because it sings
But I concede my dream does have a view
Cause all I have to, babe, is look at you

My dream doesn’t need a plantation growing cane
A location where the sun shines through the rain
The sweet refrain that makes my dream come true
Well, the only thang I need, babe, is you

Yeah, the only thang I need, babe, is you



December Island Love (Larry W. Jones 02/07/2004) (song#2606)

I remember my December island love
October and November both had passed
Back on the island I’ve been dreaming of
That December came and went so fast

I remember my December island love
It’s still in my heart with all its glory
A new version of an old island talk story
She’s in the mem’ry of my dreams thereof

Lazy island days with deepest blue of skies
Crazy island ways that made it paradise
A flower in her hair I fondly remember
After October and November
There glows an ember
Of my December island love

Lazy island days with deepest blue of skies
Crazy island ways that made it paradise
A flower in her hair I fondly remember
After October and November
There glows an ember
Of my December island love



Back To You (Larry W. Jones 02/07/2004) (song#2607)

I told everybody I don’t care
You’re back on the island over there
I told my friends that islands never call
But then when every day is new
I think of Hawaii blue
And that’s when tears for you begin to fall

My arms feel so empty without you
Your charms were the warmest that I knew
My lips surely do miss yours too
And my dreams keep going back to you

Oh, I pretend that it really doesn’t matter
Hide the fact that my heart is shattered
Over on your isle it was paradise
But now I never smile since you said goodbye
I wish I had you back again, it’s true
There’s no lack of things I wouldn’t do for you

My arms feel so empty without you
Your charms were the warmest that I knew
My lips surely do miss yours too
And my dreams keep going back to you
And my dreams keep going back to you



My Special Island (Larry W. Jones 02/07/2004) (song#2608)

I found my special island
It has all I’ll ever need
I was a castaway without you
Now at last love can succeed

I’ve strolled alone
Under every sun
You came along
And now my roaming’s done

All I really ever needed
Was someone to be true
My heart begged and pleaded
Til my special island gave me you

I strolled alone down love’s byways
Always seeming to trip and fall
Always trying to do things my way
Never hearing the islands call

Then I found my special island
And you were there to rescue me
Away from that cold old mainland
It seems like such a fantasy

I’ll tell the whole wide world
That you’re my special island girl
And that my special island girl
Is from my special island too



Sweet Tiare (Larry W. Jones 02/07/2004) (song#2609)

Parahi ‘oe, sweet Tiare
Child of polynesian southern seas
You were my blue heaven
But now you have forgotten me

I will always love you dearly
Even though we’re far apart
What I lost is now seen clearly
But it cost a broken heart

There on golden sands I held your hand
As we strolled down by the sea
Now I hang around with tears unplanned
As I cry, sweet Tiare, return to me

I will always love you dearly
Even though we’re far apart
What I lost is now seen clearly
But it cost a broken heart

There on golden sands I held your hand
As we strolled down by the sea
Now I hang around with tears unplanned
As I cry, sweet Tiare, return to me



Ship Of Sail (Larry W. Jones 02/07/2004) (song#2610)

Ship of sail, three hundred feet long
Ship of sail, three hundred feet long
Well, that ship came and took the mail
But it also took my baby, cause she’s gone

Clipper ship, clipper ship sailin’ down
Clipper ship sailin’ down to old Lahaina town
Well, that ship came and took the mail
But it also took my baby, cause she ain’t around

Clipper ship, clipper ship sailin’ down to Maui isle
Clipper ship sailin’ down to old Lahaina town
I hope someday I’ll see her sweet smile
Cause I’m wailin’ and my heart is feelin’ down

Ship of sail, three hundred feet long
Ship of sail, three hundred feet long
Well, that ship came and took the mail
But it also took my baby, cause she’s gone

Yeah, that ship came and took the mail
But it also took my baby, cause she’s gone



Now And Then (Larry W. Jones 02/08/2004) (song#2611)

(Now and then a dream comes true in paradise)
Pardon me, is it coincidental
That I heard you telling him goodbye
I won’t be angry should I see you cry
Now that he’s gone, it already seems
A little dream has caught my eye
Now and then a dream comes true in paradise

Now and then a dream comes true
Like the one that I have over you
And this I’ll vow if you’ll allow
My love for you to follow through
I’m a dreamer in love with you, dear
And I mean to love you til I die
Now and then a dream comes true in paradise

Now and then a dream comes true
Like the one that I have over you
And this I’ll vow if you’ll allow
My love for you to follow through
I’m a dreamer in love with you, dear
And I mean to love you til I die
Now and then a dream comes true in paradise



Polynesian Face (Larry W. Jones 02/08/2004) (song#5612)

I saw her down by the bay and I kissed her
She has such grace, glad I hadn’t missed her
She makes my heart beat a double pace
My sweet Leilani with the polynesian face

She brings rainbows from the tropic rain
Rainbows were never colored quite the same
She feels so good in my embrace
My sweet Leilani with the polynesian face

Have you ever heard Maui chimes a-ringing
She’s just as charming where breezes blow
Her voice is like the blue bird a-singing
I love to hear her say Aloha, hello

There’s just no way I could resist her
Especially since the first time I kissed her
Her name’s Leilani and I can’t replace
My sweet Leilani with the polynesian face



Where Is That Song (Larry W. Jones 02/08/2004) (song#2613)

There are stars in every tropic zone
But none there are that have ever shone
Like the ones I saw in polynesian eyes
Long dark hair that is a sailor’s prize
Sailing through my dreams a darkened veil
Gently as tradewinds would fill a sail
The love I have for her will never fail

Daylight comes again upon the isle
Passing in the night was her sweet smile
Please return to me, my Moana
I’ve yearned for you for quite a while

It makes no difference where I wander
The tradewinds still whisper your name
Where have you gone to over yonder
And will you ever come back this way again
Where is that song that had Moana’s name

It makes no difference where I wander
The tradewinds still whisper your name
Where have you gone to over yonder
And will you ever come back this way again
Where is that song that had Moana’s name



Search Until I’m Blue (Larry W. Jones 02/08/2004) (song#2614)

I might as well be looking
For a stalk in a sugar cane field
Or searching for what’s cooking
In an oven that’s been sealed
But I’ll just search until I’m blue
Til my dream of you comes true

It’s as hard to try to find
A raindrop in the bay
But I have to keep in mind
That there’s got to be a way
So I’ll just search until I’m blue
Til my dream of you comes true

I’ll stroll old Lahaina town, every street
Hoping that somehow we’ll meet
And I won’t even mind the heat
If my dream of you comes true

It’s as hard to try to find
A raindrop in the bay
But I have to keep in mind
That there’s got to be a way
So I’ll just search until I’m blue
Til my dream of you comes true



Warmest Island Days (Larry W. Jones 02/08/2004) (song#2615)

Here’s an old photo in my albumn
Some of them look pretty dumb
A pretty girl on the island shore
I was in puppy love with her for sure
I never knew just what to say
I guess she just strolled away one day

Faded photos in my albumn
Some of them look pretty dumb
But now all of them have become
Mem’ries of my warmest island days

Here’s an old photo of Waikiki
Kalakaua avenue by the sea
Surfin’ sure was fun for me
Back in my warmest island days

Here’s a picture of dad’s old woodie
It was an oldie but a goodie
He drove us up and over Nuuanu pali
Back in my warmest island days

Faded photos in my albumn
Some of them look pretty dumb
But now all of them have become
Mem’ries of my warmest island days

All my old friends where tradewinds blow
Where most of them went I’ll never know
But I’ve got photos of childhood ways
Mem’ries of my warmest island days



Only You For Me (Larry W. Jones 02/08/2004) (song#2616)

It was always you in Hawaii blue for me
Always will be, forever will be, only you for me

The island’s full of pretty girls I’ve known
But you’re the precious pearl I’d pick to be my own

It was always you in Hawaii blue for me
Always will be, forever will be, only you for me

I always knew your heart was true, and for you I live
With all my love I’m thinking of how much I can give

It was always you in Hawaii blue for me
Always will be, forever will be, only you for me

I remember the first time that I kissed you
And every time we’re together, I insist too
Cause when you stroll my way, the day is bright for me
And one day we’ll both know how true island love can be

It was always you in Hawaii blue for me
Always will be, forever will be, only you for me

Mm, mm, mm, mm
Mm, mm, mm
Mm, mm, mm



Always My Love (Larry W. Jones 02/08/2004) (song#2617)

You ask if I heard sweet Maui chimes
It’s only when I look at you
Always my love, always my love

You wonder if there’s love in this heart of mine
It’s always there full of desire for you
Always my love, always my love

Don’t ever think that my love for you will end
You’re more than my best friend
My whole life begins and ends
With you

Always my love, always my love

You wonder if some new love I’ll find
How could I when your heart and mine
Will be forever intertwined
Always my love, always my love

Don’t ever think that my love for you will end
You’re more than my best friend
My whole life begins and ends
With you

Always my love, always my love
Always my love, always my love



Never Never Island (Larry W. Jones 02/08/2004) (song#2618)

I know of an isle where dreams come true
And time itself is always grand
All you do is look within the heart of you
And you’ll find things you never planned
In never never island sand

It’s always underneath some tropic moon
A paradise with guitar and ukulele bands
Just dream and then you’ll find it soon
True love for island girl and man
In never never island sand

You’ll treasure the way they say Aloha there
And hear old talk stories from long ago
Love is told by placing a flower in her hair
The island way that will never, never grow old

So, come to my isle where dreams come true
And time itself is always grand
All you do is look within the heart of you
And you’ll find things you never planned
In never never island sand



Come On Everybody (Larry W. Jones 02/08/2004) (song#2619)

Come on everybody take a stroll with me
Down to Honolulu down to Waikiki
Island tuberoses bloomin’ an’ they sure smell fine
And island love is bloomin’ to the Maui chimes

Every hula girl is a polynesian queen
Down in Honolulu down in Waikiki
Come on take a stroll down Kuhio street
Where steel guitar music just can’t be beat

Nani pua lehua blossoms always fill the air
If you ain’t been to paradise, you ain’t been there
Tradewinds are blowin’ through the tall palm trees
Down in Honolulu down in Waikiki

Come on everybody take a stroll with me
Down to Honolulu down to Waikiki
Island tuberoses bloomin’ an’ they sure smell fine
And island love is bloomin’ to the Maui chimes

Every hula girl is a polynesian queen
Down in Honolulu down in Waikiki



O Tahiti Te Tiare (Larry W. Jones 02/08/2004) (song#2620)

Down below the equator on island sand
A polynesian vahini held my hand
And sang a sweet old Tahitian melody

With no hurry I placed with care
A fragrant tiare blossom in her hair
While she softly whispered e oia i tei nei

At the luau we danced the night away
Her polynesian eyes had so much love to say

I told her that it grieved me so
To leave her there where breezes blow
The band played O Tahiti te tiare sweet and low

With no hurry I placed with care
A fragrant tiare blossom in her hair
While she softly whispered e oia i tei nei

At the luau we danced the night away
Her polynesian eyes had so much love to say

I told her that it grieved me so
To leave her there where breezes blow
The band played O Tahiti te tiare sweet and low



In Old Polynesia (Larry W. Jones 02/08/2004) (song#2621)

It’s the same old moon everywhere
Shining silver beams of loving light
But golden is the sight, in old polynesia
Told in every night with love

Stars twinkle throughout the heavens
But for special places they were planned
Those sprinkled at night in old polynesia
Will guide true love through island sand

Songs fail to fully tell
It’s so exotic I am told
Hearts follow the ocean swell
In polynesian islands old

All your cares fall away in old polynesia
Worries seem to somehow cease
Every dream is wonderful in old polynesia
Where every night will bring you peace

Songs fail to fully tell
It’s so exotic I am told
Hearts follow the ocean swell
In polynesian islands old

All your cares fall away in old polynesia
Worries seem to somehow cease
Every dream is wonderful in old polynesia
Where every night will bring you peace



The Best Life (Larry W. Jones 02/08/2004) (song#2622)

When the tropic sun goes down
I’ll be strollin’ ’round Lahaina town
Oh, this island life, it’s such a good life
The best life I’ve found

All the tourist island wannabe’s
Are dreamin’ they could be like me
Oh, this island life, it’s such a good life
The best life for me

Love is in the tunes they are playin’
Listen to what the tradewinds are sayin’

This is not just a broken dream
Life is such a carefree scene
Oh, this island life, it’s such a good life
The best life I’ve seen

Oh, this island life, it’s such a good life
The best life I’ve seen
Yeah, it’s the best I’ve ever seen



Blue Bird Of Paradise (Larry W. Jones 02/08/2004) (song#2623)

There’s a blue bird of paradise
Singing in a tall palm tree above
He promised me that he would be
Singing me a song of love

Blue blue bird of paradise
Singing me a song of broken love
Blue blue bird of paradise
Please return the one I’m dreaming of

The blue bird of paradise
Knows just why I’m sad and blue
The blue bird of paradise
I wonder if his heart is broken too
The blue bird of paradise
You know my heart is pleading
You know what I am needing
Please return the one I’m dreaming of

Blue bird of paradise
You sing so tenderly
Blue bird of paradise
Will your sad song render me
Another night of heart that’s bleeding
You know my heart is pleading
You know what I am needing
Please return the one I’m dreaming of

Blue blue bird of paradise
Singing me a song of broken love
Blue blue bird of paradise
Please return the one I’m dreaming of



Alone With The Moon (Larry W. Jones 02/09/2004) (song#2624)

I turned 98.5 K-POI radio on
Moonlight filtered through my cottage pane
Lonely island nights, island songs
Wondering if I’ll see you again

Soft steel guitar music moans
It’s three o’clock by the time
I feel the pain down to my bones
My heart still says that you are mine

I never thought it would be this strong
K-Poi radio plays such sweet island songs
How long will this night go on
How long will my heart say you are mine

Cottage curtains dance as the breeze goes by
That old tropic sun will be up soon
But the topic here is how long I’ll cry
Alone in my room with the moon

Soft steel guitar music moans
It’s three o’clock by the time
I feel the pain down to my bones
My heart still says that you are mine

Cottage curtains dance as the breeze goes by
That old tropic sun will be up soon
But the topic here is how long I’ll cry
Alone in my room with the moon



Milkman’s Matinee (Larry W. Jones 02/09/2004) (song#2625)

It was three in the morning
On the isle where breezes play
Then I heard it without warning
I heard the milkman’s matinee

I looked out of my window
To see what was going on
The milkman was singing low
His early morning island song

The island’s fast asleep now
Start of the milkman’s day
To the houses I must creep now
Time for the milkman’s matinee

His song was smooth and low
About a girl down by the bay
I could tell he loved her so
By the milkman’s matinee

He made his rounds every night
Then one day he went away
He married that girl by a tiki light
While they played the milkman’s matinee



Soft Kohala Night (Larry W. Jones 02/09/2004) (song#2626)

On a starlit night I held your hand
And you said that you loved me so
I said my dream was to be your man
In Kohala where tradewinds blow

`Oe no ma`ane`i
Nalo li`a mea this soft Kohala night
The stars above were telling of
Kohala nights and your true love

The rolling waves seemed to agree
As they kissed the isle in harmony
In Kohala I found the truest love
On a starlit night by the sea

Love for you is deep within my heart
Ku’u ipo with your lips pressed to mine
This soft Kohala night will not depart
From my memory for all of time



Eskimo Tango (Larry W. Jones 02/11/2004) (song#2627)

A lady from Nebraska flew to Alaska
To do the tango with a few eskimos
But when the eskimoses wiggled their noses
She wished for tropic islands
Where warm breezes blow is

So, don’t ever tango with an eskimo
Better go where warmer breezes blow
Oh, no, don’t ever tango with an eskimo
You might freeze your nose, who knows

If you want to do some tangos
Then go and do them in brazil
Never do the tangos with eskimos
Better go where mangoes never chill

When eskimoses wiggle their noses
And dance their version of the tango
They end up dancing on your toeses
It’s better to be romancing
Where warm breezes blow is

So, don’t ever tango with an eskimo
Better go where warmer breezes blow
Oh, no, don’t ever tango with an eskimo
You might freeze your nose, who knows

When eskimoses wiggle their noses
And dance their version of the tango
They end up dancing on your toeses
It’s better to be romancing
Where warm breezes blow is

Oh, no, don’t ever tango with an eskimo



Never Ending Love (Larry W. Jones 02/11/2004) (song#2628)

My song of love for you is never ending
Just like an island anchored in the blue
My life of happiness is now depending
On my never ending love for only you

My song of love for you is never ending
Just like an island dream coming true
When we first met, I saw it blending
My never ending love for only you

We’ll spend a lifetime in this tropic zone
Where we will love each other, no other
From now on we will only hear the tone
Of my never ending love for only you

My song of love for you is never ending
Just like an island anchored in the blue
My life of happiness is now depending
On my never ending love for only you

We’ll spend a lifetime in this tropic zone
Where we will love each other, no other
From now on we will only hear the tone
Of my never ending love for only you



Tropical Twilight (Larry W. Jones 02/21/2004) (song#2629)

Tropical twilight, that early-in-the-night light
Is no longer the right light in Hawaii blue
Sweet dreams, oh they’re no longer in sight
Since it seems that I’ve lost you

Tropical twilight and polynesian eyes
Just a disguise for dreams that won’t come true
As I stroll on my way, I hope that one day might
Bring me another tropical twilight and you

That tropical twilight was such a delight
But now it’s not the right light in Hawaii blue
Sweet dreams, oh they’re no longer in sight
Since it seems that I’ve lost you

Tropical twilight and polynesian eyes
Just a disguise for dreams that won’t come true
As I stroll on my way, I hope that one day might
Bring me another tropical twilight and you



Moon So Pale (Larry W. Jones 02/21/2004) (song#2630)

Up there the moon so pale
Is shining from above
And every night without fail
I yearn for the return of the one I love

Up there the moon so pale
Promised to bring me words of love
But clouds from some monsoon gale
Lays a shroud upon the words thereof

The moon so pale has me feeling blue
I wonder if she feels as lonely too
The moon keeps on misreading
My pleadings for the return of you

Moon so pale, shine your light some more
Cause her love to be a dream come true
Moon so pale, shine upon this tropic shore
Because I need her love, I do



Ports Of Paradise (Larry W. Jones 02/21/2004) (song#2631)

I have sailed to ports of paradise
I have hailed a fortnight dream or two
But I failed to find that perfect shore
Alone in ports of paradise
All alone and feeling blue
With no real love to adore

Stars up in the velvet blue
Seemed to transmit an I Love You
So I begged them all to be my guide
Toward your tropic shore at evening tide

Then you strolled in, whom I adore
Now my sailing days are over evermore

Stars up in the velvet blue
Seemed to transmit an I Love You
So I begged them all to be my guide
Toward your tropic shore at evening tide

Then you strolled in, whom I adore
Now my sailing days are over evermore



Ku’u Pau Ole Aloha (Larry W. Jones 02/21/2004) (song#2632)

As I look at the moon tonight
And watch the stars twinkle bright
I dream again of you, my love
Ku’u pau ole Aloha
My never ending love

You’re on an island far away
I still see you strolling by the bay
And it’s for you my heart does say
Ku’u pau ole Aloha
My never ending love

Someday a rainbow will shine
Moon and stars will say you’re mine
Birds of paradise will sing in rhyme
Ku’u pau ole Aloha
My never ending love

Ha`ina mai ka puana la
This is the end thereof
Of my nani mele ke Aloha
Until we meet again, my love
Ku’u pau ole Aloha



Beyond The Lagoon (Larry W. Jones 02/21/2004) (song#2633)

Beyond the lagoon
The ocean seems so dark and blue
My love has sailed too soon
And my dreams have faded too

Now there are tears
Welling up from my eyes
Now there are fears
He’ll forget our paradise

But he tossed a garland lei
Beyond the lagoon
And it floated back to say
Maybe he’ll sail back to me real soon

Someday where tradewinds blow
We’ll stroll again beneath the moon
And my dreams won’t have to be
Beyond the lagoon

But he tossed a garland lei
Beyond the lagoon
And it floated back to say
Maybe he’ll sail back to me real soon

Someday where tradewinds blow
We’ll stroll again beneath the moon
And my dreams won’t have to be
Beyond the lagoon



Nobody Knows (Larry W. Jones 02/22/2004) (song#2634)

Nobody knows that I feel blue
Nor see the tears I cry for you
Words you spoke where tradewinds blow
That broke my heart nobody knows

Old friends think I’m the same old me
Nobody knows I need their sympathy
You still go to all the luau shows
Why you’re with somebody new nobody knows

Maybe some day you’ll hear my prayer
Whispered on the tradewind air
And happiness will come my way
Darling if you’ll come back to stay

Old friends think I’m the same old me
Nobody knows I need their sympathy
You still go to all the luau shows
Why you’re with somebody new nobody knows

But if I see you stroll on by
I’ll just turn so you won’t know I cry
That my love for you grows and grows
Maybe it’s better if nobody knows



No Shore That Far (Larry W. Jones 02/22/2004) (song#2635)

I can’t conceive of more concern
Than if you should leave and not return
For even if the sun still shone
The dreams that thrill would all be gone
But I’d find you before too long

If I couldn’t run, I’d simply crawl
If I couldn’t swim the ocean
I’d sail to where the islands call
Somehow I know I’d find a way
To find your isle where breezes play
There’s no shore that far and distant anymore

It wouldn’t matter about my heart
Even shattered, it does its part
I sware by all the stars above
Nothing can keep me from your love
There’s no shore that far that I know of

If I couldn’t run, I’d simply crawl
If I couldn’t swim the ocean
I’d sail to where the islands call
Somehow I know I’d find a way
To find your isle where breezes play
There’s no shore that far and distant anymore

It wouldn’t matter about my heart
Even shattered, it does its part
I sware by all the stars above
Nothing can keep me from your love
There’s no shore that far that I know of

Darling, there’s no shore that far that I know of



Empty Stage (Larry W. Jones 02/22/2004) (song#2636)

The luau was filled with the island’s throng
Her sarong shone with the tiki lights
And as she strolled and passed along
She was the fairest of island sights
Her beauty was such that the men would sigh
She wore jewels and pearls in island sand
But she married for wealth that would make her cry
No matter the gold that was in her hand

She’s a bird of paradise on an empty stage
A lovely sight strolling by the sea
She seems to be happy without a care
But it’s only a dream never meant to be
It’s sad to think that beauty so rare
Will someday grow old and pay the wage
Her loveliness was too soon sold
For the emptiness of a miser’s gold
She’s a bird of paradise on an empty stage

Now they stand by the shore of the ocean deep
As the tropic sun sets in the west
And here the island folks all come to weep
Over those who have gone to find their rest
And a new laid stone there has been placed
For the one who lived as an island queen
And the words on the stone seem such a waste
For she was the loveliest they had seen

She’s a bird of paradise on an empty stage
A lovely sight strolling by the sea
She seems to be happy without a care
But it’s only a dream never meant to be
It’s sad to think that beauty so rare
Will someday grow old and pay the wage
Her loveliness was too soon sold
For the emptiness of a miser’s gold
She’s a bird of paradise on an empty stage



Sweetest Island Blossom (Larry W. Jones 02/22/2004) (song#2637)

She’s the sweetest island blossom
Everybody on the island knows
And I know just what to call her
She looks like an island rose

She looks just like her mother
Polynesian through and through
She looks like a part of heaven
Has come to stay awhile with you

When she’s peacefully a-sleeping
In her little cottage place
I know there must be angels peeping
At her sweet and lovely face

And when the twilight comes a-falling
When the shadows slowly creep
Tradewinds will come a-calling
To kiss her gently in her sleep

She’s the sweetest island blossom
Everybody on the island knows
And I know just what to call her
She looks like an island rose

She looks just like her mother
Polynesian through and through
She looks like a part of heaven
Has come to stay awhile with you



The Tropic Moon (Larry W. Jones 02/22/2004) (song#2638)

There’s a moon above in paradise
Over where soft breezes blow
It’s waiting with love beams to entice
Hearts with true love to grow
So, if you fall under its spell
And it just might happen so soon
Islands will call and you will know well
Just blame it on the tropic moon

You may be strolling by the shore
When from behind a cloud on a starlit night
You’ll see a moon not seen before
Beaming down its golden light
And if your heart hears a mellow song
And your ears can’t even hear a tune
You’ll know what it means before too long
Just blame it on the tropic moon

It always comes with the tide that fills up the bay
And it opens arms wide for hearts, love to obey

There are blue moons once in a while
And harvest moons that come in the Fall
They all promise that love will smile
But the best of all is when islands call
For that’s the moon that’s worthwhile
It will keep true love in perfect tune
Just blame it on the tropic moon



Gentle As Island Spring (Larry W. Jones 02/22/2004) (song#2639)

There’s an old talk story of an island boy
And an island girl, and their hearts did sing
On the isle they were always full of joy
That only true love could ever bring
Their love was one that none could destroy
For their hearts were as gentle as island spring

But at last they both grew old
As the passing time unfurled
Years of love had turned to gold
For this island boy and island girl
But their love still remained as strong
As the first day she wore his ring
And their love was a sentimental song
For their hearts were as gentle as island spring

Then one day came the lowly tide
For death to them both did bring
And now they rest side by side
Still wearing a golden ring
And the old talk story is still around
About why the bluebirds sing
As they fly over the resting ground
For their hearts were as gentle as island spring



For You And Me (Larry W. Jones 02/22/2004) (song#2640)

Songs are being sung
For you and me
Wedding bells are being rung
For you and me
You and I have found love
And I have no doubt our love will be
Warm and tender from above
As our hearts surrender by the sea

Our vows have now been said
Between you and me
Somewhere a poem is being read
That true love was meant to be
I’ve never been shown such love
As the love you’ve shown to me
It’s you I’ve been dreaming of
Warm as the tropic breeze

So, let all the bluebirds sing
For you and me
While the wedding bells all ring
For you and me
And if tomorrow
Should bring tears and sorrow
Love will find a way
Every day
For you and me
For you and me



The Time Has Come (Larry W. Jones 02/22/2004) (song#2641)

The sun is saying goodnight in the west
Twilight over the island is creeping
Birds of paradise are in their nests
Soon all the islands will be sleeping

The time has come when we must say Aloha ‘oe
Soon I’ll be sailing across the wide blue sea
While I’m away, dear, remember that I love you
When I return, I’ll bring you a love that’s true

Oh, why must true lovers always have to part
Let me kiss you, dear, to ease the sorrow
I leave with you true love along with my heart
Please wait for me until that glad tomorrow

The time has come when we must say Aloha ‘oe
Soon I’ll be sailing across the wide blue sea
While I’m away, dear, remember that I love you
When I return, I’ll bring you a love that’s true



Hawaiian Islands (Larry W. Jones 02/23/2004) (song#2642)

Years have come and years have gone
Since I sailed from my dear home
In Hawaiian islands where I was born
I would have many times returned
And oh, how my heart has yearned
To return to Hawaiian islands where I belong

Way over yonder in the peaceful ocean
I’d paddle my canoe to the local motion
In Hawaiian islands where I was born
Way over yonder in the peaceful ocean
My heart’s still there with deep devotion
In Hawaiian islands where I was born

But I’m still sailing night and day
Even though my heart is miles away
From the bay where I paddled my canoe at morn
Where the pandanus and tall palm trees
Are kissed by the tradewind breeze
In Hawaiian islands where I was born

Way over yonder in the peaceful ocean
I’d paddle my canoe to the local motion
In Hawaiian islands where I was born
Way over yonder in the peaceful ocean
My heart’s still there with deep devotion
In Hawaiian islands where I was born

This sailin’ life has paid its wage
I’m headin’ home on the ship’s last stage
To Hawaiian islands where I was born
Where the peaceful tradewind blows
And there grows the sweet tuberose
In Hawaiian islands where I was born



Hawaiian Dreams (Larry W. Jones 02/23/2004) (song#2643)

Oh sailing ship with masts so tall
There’s someone waiting for the islands call
I wonder if you’ve set your course today
For Hawaiian islands so far away

Hawaiian dreams
Coming from over the sea
Hawaiian dreams
Where palm trees are kissed by the tradewind breeze
I can still hear from afar
Soft strains from koa guitars
How lovely where you are

Hawaiian dreams
Polynesian eyes
Out to you my heart still goes
Our Aloha ‘oe meant goodbye
But the magic of that Hawaiian paradise
Still pulls at my heart strings
With Hawaiian dreams



Pua Awapuhi Keo (Larry W. Jones 02/23/2004) (song#2644)

Pua awapuhi keo
Blossoms of ginger white
So sweet you are, and lovely
Even more than a fragrant rose
Pua awapuhi keo
Soft as the pale moonlight glows

Pua awapuhi keo
Flower of the misty mountains
Flower of the islands rare
Your sweet fragrance beckons
From the perfumed air

Around your neck this lovely day
You wear so well my white ginger lei
If it could speak, then it would say
Oh, please don’t ever go away

Pua awapuhi keo
Blossoms of ginger white
Flower of the misty mountains
Growing by a dreamy pool
Awaiting with their petals bright
To make the sweetest lei for you



Old Hawaiian Love Song (Larry W. Jones 02/23/2004) (song#2645)

Just an old Hawaiian love song
Playin’ where soft breezes blow
And somewhere in the words so strong
Somebody promising they’d never go
I’m sure I’ve heard those loving words before
As the song keeps playin’ on and on
Why did you leave from this fair shore
Why does my heart grieve on and on

Just an old Hawaiian love song
That somebody wrote down by the sea
Just an old Hawaiian love song
That somebody wrote for you and me

Our dreams came true in Hawaii blue together
Under the moonbeams glow
You swore our love would stand all kinds of weather
And that it would always grow
I’m sure I’ve heard those loving words before
As the song keeps playin’ on and on
Why did you leave from this fair shore
Why does my heart grieve on and on

Just an old Hawaiian love song
Playin’ where soft breezes blow
Just an old Hawaiian love song
Somebody promising they’d never go
Just an old Hawaiian love song
I’m sure I’ve heard those loving words before



Palm Tree Island (Larry W. Jones 02/23/2004) (song#2646)

On a palm tree island
A castaway with you I’d love to be
On a palm tree island
You and I would be so happy

Every day I’d see your smile
Under skies of brightest blue
You and I could stroll for miles
While I stole a kiss from you
There the birds of paradise
Would sing for you and me forever
And we would hide on the leeward side
When the tide brought the ships to find us

On a palm tree island
A castaway with you I’d love to be
On a palm tree island
Dreams would come true down by the sea

Every day I’d see your smile
Under skies of brightest blue
You and I could stroll for miles
While I stole a kiss from you
There the birds of paradise
Would sing for you and me forever
And we would hide on the leeward side
When the tide brought the ships to find us



Evening In Waikiki (Larry W. Jones 02/23/2004) (song#2647)

Down Kalakaua avenue, down by the sea
You can see ’em strollin’ two by two
On an evening in Waikiki
Love’s old sweet croon is where the moon is
It’s plain to see
Hand in hand in Hawaii blue
On an evening in Waikiki

Though palms are swaying to ukuleleing
In sunny Waikiki
The nights are young when songs are sung
To a tropical melody
So please meet me on Kalakaua
So we can say Aloha
For I am all alone and spring has sprung
On an evening in Waikiki

Don’t know if dreams still come true
But in Hawaii I hope they do
With you on an evening in Waikiki

Don’t know if dreams still come true
But in Hawaii I hope they do
With you on an evening in Waikiki



Young Island Love (Larry W. Jones 02/24/2004) (song#2648)

I’ve got a young island love in my heart
That’s where it will stay, sun or rain
You’re still my young island rose on the vine
Just as sweet as sweetest vintage wine
The same old love song with a young refrain

I’ve got a young island dream in my heart
The same old one that used to be
When we strolled hand in hand at the start
I fell in love with you endlessly
I’ve got a young island love in my heart

I’ve got a young island love in my heart
That’s where it will stay, sun or rain
You’re still my young island rose on the vine
Just as sweet as sweetest vintage wine
The same old love song with a young refrain

I’ve got a young island dream in my heart
The same old one that used to be
When we strolled hand in hand at the start
I fell in love with you endlessly
I’ve got a young island love in my heart



The Dream Go On (Larry W. Jones 02/24/2004) (song#2649)

Over in the islands, pretty wahini pretty smart
Call you honey, spend your money
Then pretty wahini break your heart
Aloha Joe, don’t know where to go
Pretty wahini stir his desire
Then she throw water on the fire

Aloha Joe, he keep on tryin’
Pretty wahini smile put on
Then she leave poor Joe a-cryin’
On and on, the dream go on

When the first love is the last love
It make your heart so sad, feel so bad
But if you dream on, on and on
Then someday maybe you won’t hear or see
Her say to you, Aloha ‘oe

But there’s still sunshine on the sand
Warm the feet of island man
Pretty wahini don’t understand
I just cross off all my schemes
And toss up all my dreams
And see where they land

I see pretty wahini on the isle
Can’t give up on tryin’
She look at me and smile, then stroll away
Feel like my heart is dyin’
On and on, the dream go on
On and on, the dream go on



I Remember Your Face (Larry W. Jones 02/24/2004) (song#2650)

On tropic days when skies are blue and valleys green
I stroll around old Lahaina town
And wish you were still on the island scene
And when I hear steel guitar music spread
I remember loving words that we said
And it’s on tropic days like this
That I remember your sweet kiss
And every time I remember that you were mine

On tropic days with valleys green and skies of blue
Between my dreams I wonder what became of you
You must be singing island songs with someone new
I still picture you strolling beside the sea
And I remember your face on such lovely days as these

On tropic days when skies are blue and valleys green
I stroll around old Lahaina town
And wish you were still on the island scene
On tropic days with valleys green and skies of blue
Between my dreams I wonder what became of you
You must be singing island songs with someone new
I still picture you strolling beside the sea
And I remember your face on such lovely days as these



On The Isle Again (Larry W. Jones 02/24/2004) (song#2651)

Just can’t wait to get on the isle again
Island love is like the music playing on the wind
And I can’t wait to get on the isle again

On the isle again
Back to where my heart has always been
Body surfin’ with my board and fins
And I can’t wait to get on the isle again

On the isle again
Warm sand and sea and luaus held down by the bay
Where Aloha is the word of friends
And ohana love is just the island way

And my way
Is on the isle again
Just can’t wait to get on the isle again
Island love is like the music playing on the wind
And I can’t wait to get on the isle again



If You Think Of Me (Larry W. Jones 02/24/2004) (song#2652)

Now and then back on the isle
Try to think of me as at the start
Once in a while I try to smile
Though I know another has your heart

Now and then out in the stream
Is our dream still on the chart
Or has someone else come in between
Since we drifted far apart

Maybe somewhere in a fading ember
A little spark may still remain
If our island love you can remember
Perhaps then love may burn again

Even though I’ve lamented
Over what love might have been
I’ll try to be contented
If you think of me now and then

Maybe somewhere in a fading ember
A little spark may still remain
If our island love you can remember
Perhaps then love may burn again

Even though I’ve lamented
Over what love might have been
I’ll try to be contented
If you think of me now and then



Once Upon A Time (Larry W. Jones 02/24/2004) (song#2653)

Once upon a time
A girl with polynesian eyes
Strolled hand in hand with mine
Where tradewind breezes blow
Once upon a time it was paradise
Once upon a time, long ago

Once upon a time
We sat beneath a tall palm tree
We watched the big moon climb
And said that love was endlessly
Once upon a time love was like a song
Now that tall palm tree along with love is gone

Oh, how the tradewind breeze
Caressed her long black hair
Oh, how we used to laugh
And saw the world without a care
We both were young, I know
Oh, where did it all go

Once upon a time
Our love was fresh and new
Everything was fine
The sky was bright and blue
Once upon a time rainbows came with rain
But once upon a time has never come again



This Dream For Sale (Larry W. Jones 02/24/2004) (song#2654)

Who wants to buy a faded dream
One faded lover’s dream
One faded dream for sale

I have a good excuse, you see
If future love never finds me
She set me adrift upon the sea
Now only memories remind me

It was stupid, now I see
I should have been much wiser
But that girl in old Maui
Somehow I just can’t despise her

She never paid attention to
Love words I told her all along
She strolled away with someone new
And then the music was all gone

Some guys dreams are always glad
I haven’t had very many
I think I’ll just take out an ad
This dream for sale for a penny

Who wants to buy a faded dream (An island theme)
One faded lover’s dream
One faded dream for sale

Who wants to buy a faded dream (My faded dream)
One faded lover’s dream
One faded dream for sale



Two Shadows (Larry W. Jones 02/24/2004) (song#2655)

Shadows in the moonlight
Come when the night time falls
Two shadows always seem right
In dreams when islands call

Two shadows underneath the moon
Know what the other’s thinking of
And both of them will know it soon
When two shadows fall in love

The moon will beam from velvet skies
And tradewinds will whisper by
Two shadows underneath the moon
Will soon be one in paradise

Two shadows underneath the moon
Know what the other’s thinking of
And both of them will know it soon
When two shadows fall in love

The moon will beam from velvet skies
And tradewinds will whisper by
Two shadows underneath the moon
Will soon be one in paradise



Golden Tahiti (Larry W. Jones 02/25/2004) (song#2656)

Golden Tahiti, I’ve been dreaming of you
Of south seas magic land
Of your warm golden sand
Golden Tahiti, where dreams of gold come true
Open wide your welcome doors
And guide me to your golden shores

Golden Tahiti, your mountains are covered green
Sunny are your tropic scenes
And deep blue are your bays
Golden Tahiti, bringing back my childhood days
My heart is still with you
Even though it’s feeling blue

Shores of Tahiti nui, and Tahiti iti too
Paradise with skies of blue
Tiare flowers kissed by dew
Garlands of flowers waiting at your shore
Golden Tahiti, golden Tahiti
I will return for evermore



Poi And Spam (Larry W. Jones 02/25/2004) (song#2657)

A new york steak is good for eating
And so is chowder made from clams
But when island folks are treating
They always serve up poi and spam

Now some folks may beg to differ
But Hormel knows how to can the ham
And there’s nothing better to my sniffer
Than a luau filled with poi and spam

If you want to know about island living
Just go to a luau and do a good exam
Cause it’s there you’ll see ’em giving
Plates filled to the brim with poi and spam

Now that kalua pig is good when you see
It roasted it the pit with lots of yams
And if you wanna make my stomach happy
Just fill it full of good ‘ol poi and spam

Now my mele is almost over and ended
And my belly is the biggest what am
But us island boys have always defended
Going to the luau for more poi and spam

So, when I get back to my old homestead
There I’ll live my life just as I am
And if you read in the paper that I’m dead
Just blame it on that good ‘ol poi and spam



Isle Of A Thousand Loves (Larry W. Jones 02/29/2004) (song#2658)

On this isle of a thousand loves
Let me stroll with you by the shore
Where steel guitar music plays thereof
Words of love forevermore

Under the glow from velvet nights
Island love beckons you and me
Like diamonds are the starry lights
Bestowing love eternally

Dreams of a kiss from an island miss
While strolling in the sand
Brings such bliss that once was missed
By this once lonely man

On this isle
On this isle
On this isle of a thousand loves
Let me stroll with you by the shore
Where steel guitar music plays thereof
Words of love forevermore
Words of love forevermore



The Number Two (Larry W. Jones 02/29/2004) (song#2659)

The number two is made from one and one
One island love has just begun
Now that I’ve met you
Here where rainbows shine in the sun
One thing I want to say that’s true
The number two is one, me and you

I can count the ways when you’re near
Everything under the sun
Adds up to what is very clear
The number two is made from one and one

In Hawaii, this dream got its start
And I know you dreamed it too
Aloha, I love you from my heart
You made my dream come true

I’m so glad you say that you’ll be mine
Where breexes play, the world now looks so fine

The number two is made from one and one
One island love has just begun
Now that I’ve met you
Here where rainbows shine in the sun
One thing I want to say that’s true
The number two
The number two
The number two is one, me and you



Seven For A Love (Larry W. Jones 02/29/2004) (song#2660)

When we were island kids
I was king and you were queen
Counting birds of paradise on the wing
And we would sing

One for a luau, two for poi
Three for an island filled with joy
Four for a song that’s new and old
Five for an island girl and boy
Six for a sun that’s tropic gold
Seven for a love that won’t grow old

As we grew up, bird of paradise number one
Took us to the luau, and number two for poi and fun
In paradise we found three and four
And a love that grew on tropic shores
The sun painted the sunsets gold
And all seven meant a love that won’t grow old

Six birds of paradise flew by today
Then another joined them on their way
Seven birds of paradise sang a song
And here are the words we sing along

One for a luau, two for poi
Three for an island filled with joy
Four for a song that’s new and old
Five for an island girl and boy
Six for a sun that’s tropic gold
Seven for a love that won’t grow old



And Four To Go (Larry W. Jones 02/29/2004) (song#2661)

I’ve read about lots of islands
And there’s one thing that I have found
When tropical tradewinds call
There’s no time to stall
I’m leaving for old Lahaina town
On Maui isle
So, don’t be grieving
If I’m not around

One for the money, find me a honey
Two for the show, where life is slow
Three to get ready, wahinis are pretty
And four to go
Where tradewinds blow

Some seek money, fortune and fame
But that’s not my game
I want an island honey to change her name
And a song to sing

When tropical tradewinds call
There’s no time to stall
I’m leaving for old Lahaina town
On Maui isle
So, don’t be grieving
If I’m not around

One for the money, find me a honey
Two for the show, where life is slow
Three to get ready, wahinis are pretty
And four to go
Where tradewinds blow



One Island Love (Larry W. Jones 03/01/2004) (song#2662)

Over on the isle where breezes blow
I found what I was looking for
She was there for me, I know
Waiting on that island shore

My life was filled with emptiness
No true love had I found
One island love can turn your life around
Fill your heart with happiness
Over on the isle in old Lahaina town
And the reason why I smile now is
One island love

I searched for love in all good measure
But my life filled with displeasure
Until I found that one true treasure
And she’s the only one I need

One island love can turn your life around
Fill your heart with happiness
Over on the isle in old Lahaina town
One island love can fill you with delight
Make you forget those lonely nights
Over on the isle there’s no emptiness
And the reason why I smile now is
One island love



One Twilight In June (Larry W. Jones 03/01/2004) (song#2663)

One twilight in June I’ll never forget, dear
Under the moon when you were so near
Sailing was over for this island rover
And my heart was full of good cheer

One twilight in June, one magic hour
No night is too soon for mem’ries to stray
Though love is now a faded flower
Like a castaway island bouquet

Kisses we shared in the glow of one twilight
Still burn your name in my mind
A treasure to me you’ll always be
Though you’re no longer mine

One twilight in June I remember
Love’s embers have been all strewn
Though dreams may perish, one I will cherish
That one, that one twilight in June

Kisses we shared in the glow of one twilight
Still burn your name in my mind
A treasure to me you’ll always be
Though you’re no longer mine

One twilight in June I remember
Love’s embers have been all strewn
Though dreams may perish, one I will cherish
That one, that one twilight in June



Peeping Stars (Larry W. Jones 03/01/2004) (song#2664)

Tropic stars are up above
Keeping watch on you and me
While your eyes are speaking love
Peeping stars they seem to be

No troubles where tradewinds blow, love
Sweet dreams are in our sight
One tropic star of hope above
Shines upon our love tonight

Tropic stars are up above
Keeping watch on you and me
While your eyes are speaking love
Peeping stars they seem to be

Golden is the tropic moon above
Shining down on us to bless
And your love reminds me of
The reason for my happiness

Like diamonds are the stars, my love
Along with the moon’s heavenly light
They’re up there to bless, my love
And assess true vows we make tonight



Everlasting Vow (Larry W. Jones 03/01/2004) (song#2665)

I’m dreaming of Leilani, sweet Leilani, sweet Leilani
I’m dreaming of sweet Leilani now
Just the thought of her is one that never dies
She lives in Manoa valley, Manoa valley, Manoa valley
She lives in Manoa valley
Where birds of paradise are winging in the skies

Listen to the birds of paradise
Listen to the birds of paradise
Birds of paradise for sweet Leilani crave
Listen to the birds of paradise
Listen to the birds of paradise
They’re singing where the palm trees gently wave

Always I will remember, remember, remember
Always I will remember
The times we strolled together side by side
Love is like a glowing ember, an ember, an ember
It was in the sweet September
That sweet Leilani said she’d be my bride

Her charms are as when spring awakens, awakens, awakens
Her charms are as when spring awakens
And birds of paradise are singing on the bough
By no other love my heart is taken, is taken, is taken
She will never be forsaken
For to sweet Leilani I gave my everlasting vow



New Zealand Reminisce (Larry W. Jones 03/01/2004) (song#2666)

Cheryl Moana Marie, so dear to me
Waits on New Zealand’s distant shore
The sweetest kiss, that miss Maori
I reminisce in dreams of her once more

Oh, carry me back across the sea
Back to where I long to be
To New Zealand and the Maori
To my sweet Cheryl Moana Marie

Oh, why did I ever go away
Where my heart can never feel free
I must sail away today
To my sweet Cheryl Moana Marie

I thought that I could find fame and happiness
But I’m to blame for being blind to emptiness

Oh, carry me back across the sea
Back to where I long to be
To New Zealand and the Maori
To my sweet Cheryl Moana Marie

The time for waiting is now over at last
My heart soon will be free
I’m sailing back to New Zealand so fast
To my sweet Cheryl Moana Marie

I’m sailing back to New Zealand so fast
To my sweet Cheryl Moana Marie



Sailing Back To Maui (Larry W. Jones 03/01/2004) (song#2667)

I’m sailing back to Maui
That valley isle I want to see
The place I left one day to wander
From my dear home there by the sea
I’m growing old and weary
And tired of roaming too
I’m sailing back to Maui
To see the folks that I once knew

I’m sailing back
I’m sailing back
I’m sailing back this very day
I’m sailing back to Maui
I’m sailing back today
I’m sailing back to Maui
For my heart can’t stay away

I’m sailing back to Maui
That valley isle where I was born
Among the fields of sugar cane
And where the Lokelani rose adorns
I’ll be happy when I get there
Just to stroll down mem’ry lane
And to see that green, green valley fair
Yes, to old Maui I’m sailing back again

To live and die in dear old Maui
That will be good enough for me
I’ll cut the cane down by the sea
And oh, how happy I will be
I’ll go to the luau and eat the poi
And hear the ukulele play
And when returns this island boy
Never more will I from Maui stray



True Love Forever (Larry W. Jones 03/01/2004) (song#2668)

Down in the cane fields by the sugar mill
There lives an island girl that I love still
Oh, how I love her, and I have loved her long
Here is my serenade, to her my island song

Come with me, my love, the tide is low
The canoe is ready for to ride, I know
Come with me, my love, and you will see
That I have loved you endlessly

Open up your heart, my love, oh do
And hear the music my ukulele plays for you
Whisperings of love are on the wind so low
Harmonizing my song to you where breezes blow

Softly the tropic moon is on the rise
The topic now is love in paradise
Oh, how it’s shining on the old sugar mill
And by its beams I vow I love you still

Come with me, my love, the tide is low
The canoe is ready for to ride, I know
Come with me, my love, and you will see
That I have loved you endlessly

I’ll never say farewell or go away
I’ll be right here where breezes play
Come with me, my love, please say you’ll go
True love forever on you I will bestow



Five Bells (Larry W. Jones 03/01/2004) (song#2669)

Oh, Lani dear, it grieves me
The tale that I must tell
By morning I’ll be sailing
Aloha ‘oe at five bells
So, fare thee well, my Lani
Farewell to balmy seas
Don’t weep for me, sweet Lani
Don’t you weep for me

Aloha ‘oe to old Maui
Aloha ‘oe, my Lani dear
Farewell to you and Maui
Don’t you weep for me

I’m going to sail the seven seas
Unto lands far away to behold
With nothing but my ukulele
To cheer me on when nights are cold
For when I’m sad and weary
I’ll make the ukulele play
Remind me of the one I love dearly
Back on old Maui far away

I wake up in the morning
And stroll down by the bay
Oh, Lani, my sweet darling
Comes to see me sail away
Her words then make my heart stir
As we view the rising tide
I tell her that I love her
When I return she’ll be my bride



Sending You A Letter (Larry W. Jones 03/02/2004) (song#2670)

Well, I’m sending you a letter
Full of sweet words from me
I’m sending you a letter
So that you can plainly see

Aloha means I love you
And I always will
I’m sending you a letter
Begging all my dreams that you fulfill

Well, I’m sending you a letter
Sealed with a kiss or two
I’m sending you a letter
Mailed to Hawaii blue

Aloha means I love you
Over where the breezes blow
I’m mailing all my love there too
I just have to let you know

Darling, when you read my letter
Please say that you’ll be mine
I need to know you better
Forever’s not too long a time

Aloha means I love you
And I always will
I’m sending you a letter
Begging all my dreams that you fulfill



One Delightful Night (Larry W. Jones 03/02/2004) (song#2671)

The stars in paradise were gleaming
The tropic moon shone softly from above
It almost seemed that I was dreaming
In the rapture of a new found island love
In polynesian eyes, lovelight was beaming
As we strolled together by the sea
Wrapped in your arms one delightful night
You said Aloha meant that you loved me

Now when I see the twilight falling
My thoughts always turn to you
And every time I hear the islands calling
I dream again of the love we knew
Then I know the pain with you out of sight
And again I see you strolling by the sea
I think again of one delightful night
And when Aloha meant that you loved me

Let me hear Aloha and love me again
Let me be near you again
For you my heart is burning and I’m lonely
Let me say Aloha which means I love you only
I don’t want to spend my life dreaming of you
I depend on you to make things right
Let me hear you say Aloha with love that’s true
And let forever be as one delightful night



Only An Empty Heart (Larry W. Jones 03/02/2004) (song#2672)

You
Where soft tradewinds are
Fulfilling my dreams from afar
Calling to my empty arms
Like the warmth of the tropic sun
It has begun and I can’t let go of
This dream that fills my empty heart with love

Only an empty heart knows
When love on the tradewind blows
Only an empty heart knows
That rain is needed for the rose

You
With polynesian eyes
Clear and calm as a balmy day
The image of love in paradise
There’s no disguise in words you say
My heart has heard the sound
An island melody has been found
On the strings of an empty heart

Only an empty heart knows
When love on the tradewind blows
Only an empty heart knows
That rain is needed for the rose



A Peaceful Ocean Apart (Larry W. Jones 03/02/2004) (song#2673)

I’m usually here at twilight
Looking out at the harbor lights
That’s when I’m crying
My poor heart is dying
Thinking of you on that distant shore

I’m chasing illusions left and right
Chasing dreams that fade out of sight
That’s when I’m crying
My poor heart is dying
Oh, how I need your love evermore

Only the pacific is between us
Only a peaceful ocean apart
But only in dreams have I seen us
I feel what seems to be a broken heart

I’m chasing illusions left and right
Chasing dreams that fade out of sight
That’s when I’m crying
My poor heart is dying
Oh, how I need your love evermore

I remember when my heart had no pain
All I want is to feel that again
When will I be where you’re at
When will the healing start
Oh, it doesn’t help to know that
We’re only a peaceful ocean apart



Whenever You’re In My Dreams (Larry W. Jones 03/02/2004) (song#2674)

Whenever you’re in my dreams
I can fly up to the sky
And capture a moonbeam, it seems
Whenever you’re in my dreams

I don’t have to win a millionaire’s prize
Or come up with dubious schemes
I can be happy and in paradise
Whenever you’re in my dreams

Some guys are ambitious
But that’s not my wish
I like simple things delicious
Like a luau with poi and fish
And you under moonlight beams
Where you make my dreams come true

I don’t have to win a millionaire’s prize
Or come up with dubious schemes
I can be happy and in paradise
Whenever you’re in my dreams

I can see myself there
When I place a flower in you’re hair
I’ll do it with care and esteem
Whenever you’re in my dreams



Only For You (Larry W. Jones 03/02/2004) (song#2675)

A sunset fire red on a canvas of blue
Is only for you
Only for you

A master of none, but all that I do
Is only for you
Only for you

A rainbow with a pot of gold, I am told
Is only for you
Only for you

Sunshine on the island, and moonlight too
Is only for you
Only for you

My future would end, dear
And stars in heaven would fall
If I didn’t have you near
To hear the islands call

But my future is bright and my love this night
Is only for you
Only for you



Hanalani (Larry W. Jones 03/03/2004) (song#2676)

Hanalani
Maui and you are so heavenly
A paradise by the sea
A rendezvous that only angels knew
Until you were discovered
By far flung island lovers
Heavenly Hana, Maui’s paradise

Hanalani
Your beauty is nature’s way
Of placing on display
A paradise for lovers eyes
That a picture can’t capture
But hearts you enrapture
Heavenly Hana, Maui’s paradise

The waters of your bay
Are warm and inviting
More than words can say
You are to love inciting

Hanalani
Your mellow moon is on the sea
Yellow beams of ecstasy
A paradise for lovers eyes
That a picture can’t capture
But hearts you enrapture
Heavenly Hana, Maui’s paradise



Only You And You Alone (Larry W. Jones 03/03/2004) (song#2677)

Only you and you alone
Can make my heart take flight
Only you and you alone
Can turn my words to song
And make me feel that all is right
When I belong to you and you alone

Only you and you alone
Can bring my heart such happiness
Only you and you alone
Can make me a king upon a throne
And paradise bring of such loveliness
When I belong to you and you alone

Only you and you alone
Can make my heart take flight
Only you and you alone
Can turn my words to song
And make me feel that all is right
When I belong to you and you alone

Only you and you alone



Kaiulani Lane (Larry W. Jones 03/03/2004) (song#2678)

When I strolled with you down Kaiulani Lane
Nothing could ever be the same
My heart was singing a new refrain
And then we said Aloha ‘oe goodbye

When I remember our stroll down Kaiulani Lane
The moon was full and then began to wane
Now my heart is filled with emptiness and pain
As sweet memories beckon with a sigh

Oh, where are those fragrant blossoms
That bloomed in springtime then
And where are those love songs
We heard on soft tradewinds
And will I ever hear that sweet refrain
When I strolled with you down Kaiulani Lane

Oh, where are those fragrant blossoms
That bloomed in springtime then
And where are those love songs
We heard on soft tradewinds
And will I ever hear that sweet refrain
When I strolled with you down Kaiulani Lane



Moonlight And Orchids (Larry W. Jones 03/03/2004) (song#2679)

When orchids bloom in Maui
Over in Hawaii blue
I dream of dear old Maui
And that girl that I once knew

Moonlight and orchids in old Maui
And a love that still rings true
Brings back such sweet memories
When moonlight and orchids were new

But then the orchids faded at the dawn
With our Aloha ‘oe goodbye
Shattered were my Maui dreams
Scattered like the orchid petals
But my love will never fade or die

Moonlight and orchids in old Maui
And a love that still rings true
Brings back such sweet memories
When moonlight and orchids were new

Now it’s peaceful in the twilight
When the day is done and through
But the orchids in the moonlight
When the shadows start to lenghten
Seem to only strengthen
My moonlight Maui dreams of you



Like Constant Tradewinds (Larry W. Jones 03/03/2004) (song#2680)

Our love is like the constant tradewinds
That make the palm trees sway
It’s the kind of thing that never ends
All through the year and every day

Old victorolas and black and white movie shows
And other things we used to know
May all go away some day
But our love sings where the tradewind blows
And that will never fade away

And so, my dear, I have to say
Love like ours has a long, long way to go
Like a song that’s played down by the bay
The melody will turn to gold

You won’t hear me complain or grumble
True love will keep me humble
You can mold my heart like a piece of clay
Our love will never crumble
Where tradewinds make the palm trees sway

And so, my dear, I have to say
Love like ours has a long, long way to go
Like a song that’s played down by the bay
The melody will turn to gold
The melody will turn to gold



Peaceful Island Ways (Larry W. Jones 03/03/2004) (song#2681)

When I get tired of the rat race
And feel like I have to get away
I get inspired when I embrace
The slow pace
Of the peaceful island ways

Healthy mainland air is almost gone
L.A. looks like a smoggy traffic zone
But tradewinds are blowing every day
This mainland life I’ve gotta trade
For the peaceful island ways

Here, the crowds are closin’ in on me
The noise is loud, opposing sanity
Life is too darn fast these days
I’ve gotta slip away
To the peceful island ways

Before my chances are all gone
Before we run out of good ozone
I’m headin’ for a tropic zone
Plant my feet where palm trees sway
To the peceful island ways

Before my chances are all gone
Before we run out of good ozone
I’m headin’ for a tropic zone
Plant my feet where palm trees sway
To the peceful island ways



Favorite Place Of Mine (Larry W. Jones 03/03/2004) (song#2682)

Say what you may
Though islands are far away
The only place I’ll settle down
Where breezes play
Is old Lahaina town

That’s where breezes bring
Birds of paradise to sing
And nobody ever wears a frown
The favorite place of mine where living is so fine
Is old Lahaina town

Out where the tropic sun
Is like a big orange feather duster
Clearing the skies of paradise
Old Maui isle is where rainbows muster
To show their lustre
Over old Lahaina town

That’s where breezes bring
Birds of paradise to sing
And nobody ever wears a frown
The favorite place of mine where living is so fine
Is old Lahaina town

The favorite place of mine where living is so fine
Is old Lahaina town



In My Blue Heaven (Larry W. Jones 03/03/2004) (song#2683)

I pass your cottage by the bay
My misty eyes then seem to say
There stands the way to paradise
But you don’t even notice me
I’m as blue as blue can be
In my blue heaven

You strolled away with someone new
I wish him the best, the same to you
I have to keep up my disguise
My heart is broken, can’t you see
I’m as blue as blue can be
In my blue heaven

I said our wedding day would draw a crowd
Now there’s no silver lining behind the cloud
My heart is pining for your kiss
Oh, how I miss your love

You strolled away with someone new
I wish him the best, the same to you
I have to keep up my disguise
My heart is broken, can’t you see
I’m as blue as blue can be
In my blue heaven

My heart is broken, can’t you see
I’m as blue as blue can be
In my blue heaven



More And More (Larry W. Jones 03/03/2004) (song#2684)

Ah-mmm, ah-mmm, ah-mmm, ah-mmm

Well, I went to a luau on Friday night
The whole island scene was there
I saw more and more and more and more
Hula girls than I’d seen before
I saw more and more and more and more
Hula girls than I’d seen before
I saw more and more and more and more
Hula girls than I’d seen before

Ah-mmm, ah-mmm, ah-mmm, ah-mmm

Then, all at once I saw her
Prettiest hula girl in the world
I said won’t you come over and stroll with me
And be my hula girl
I said won’t you come over and stroll with me
And be my hula girl
I said won’t you come over and stroll with me
And be my hula girl

Ah-mmm, ah-mmm, ah-mmm, ah-mmm

She said she was sorry
And then she strolled away
She had to dance and dance and dance and dance
With her hula sway
She had to dance and dance and dance and dance
With her hula sway
She had to dance and dance and dance and dance
With her hula sway



Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 03/04/2004) (song#2685)

Hawaii, I’m speaking my mind
I’ve been away too long of a time
My heart is feeling, almost reeling
For your tropical clime
Here on the mainland, I’m sad
Back on my isle I’ll be glad
I miss your warm bays when I’m away
Every day you’re in this heart of mine

Hawaii, this mainland makes me blue
It’s no wonder I dream of you
I almost feel your golden sunshine
And the ohana love I knew
There’s not a moment when I’d rather be
Strolling in your hospitality
Your island son knows only one
Place to which his heart is true

My Hawaii
I hear your tradewinds calling
There’s no time to be stalling
I’m coming home to you
And tell my girl waiting there
To wear a flower in her hair
We’ll play those sweet Maui chimes
For our wedding rings this time



Green Island (Larry W. Jones 03/04/2004) (song#2686)

Over on the green island
That basks in the sun
That’s where I want to be
Where I want to run

With a blue sky above me
Where soft tradewinds blow
The sun shines through the rain
To make the rainbow

Palm trees wave their arms
As people stroll by
I’ll crave all its charms
Just my love and I

Over on the green island
That basks in the sun
That’s where I want to be
Where I want to run

There I’ll follow my dream
I don’t need anything
Over on the green island
I’ll feel like a king

There I will feel free
I’ll shed most of my clothes
Tread by the blue sea
Warm sand under my toes



Far Over The Ocean (Larry W. Jones 03/04/2004) (song#2687)

Far over the ocean
Across the blue sea
What fills my heart with emotion
And deep devotion
Is an island girl who’s waiting for me

I’ll sail over the ocean
Sail across the blue sea
Sails filled with tradewinds
Soft as violins
For an island girl who’s waiting for me

We’ll stroll in the sand
In sweet harmony
To steel guitar bands
A wedding so grand
For an island girl who’s waiting for me

Under the moon up in the sky
Birds of paradise on the fly
Islands of Aloha will bless
When she says yes
My love and I

And each starry night
When we take the notion
Love we will share so tenderly
Far over the ocean
Across the blue sea



I’m So Positive (Larry W. Jones 03/08/2004) (song#2688)

How long does it take to fill the ocean
How deep is the thrill of love
How long will there be deep devotion
For the only one I’m dreaming of

My heart song for you is so predictive
For to me true love has been cast
I guess you could say I’m so positive
For I know our new love will last

How high is the peak of Mauna Kea
Seems like it reaches into space
That’s how long you’ll hear me say
No other love could take your place

My heart song for you is so predictive
For to me true love has been cast
I guess you could say I’m so positive
For I know our new love will last

Until the end of time itself
Our love will show the world its power
I’m so positive of this myself
I’m so positive of this love of ours



Our Island Song (Larry W. Jones 03/08/2004) (song#2689)

Our island song when it’s played
Is still in tune on my heart strings
Just like the moon our love has stayed
And island love has brought us everything

When it was played at the luau show
We danced toe to toe in the golden sand
It was then we held each other close
And strolled into a wonderland

It was then I found my island love
I’d waited around for so long
When we danced under tropic stars above
To the tune that became our island song

We strolled along to that island song
And those words of love are still as strong

When it was played at the luau show
We danced toe to toe in the golden sand
It was then we held each other close
And strolled into a wonderland

It was then I found my island love
I’d waited around for so long
When we danced under tropic stars above
To the tune that became our island song



Ukulele Island Music (Larry W. Jones 03/08/2004) (song#2690)

Strum another string along
On a uke, uke, ukulele song
Where I belong is lovin’ you
With ukulele island music

I’ll sing anything for you
Anything in Hawaii blue
You can make my dreams come true
To ukulele island music

You stole my heart here by the sea
My whole life is a melody
When you’re strolling hand in hand with me

So, strum another string along
On a uke, uke, ukulele song
Where I belong is lovin’ you
With ukulele island music

Strum another string along
On a uke, uke, ukulele song
Where I belong is lovin’ you
With ukulele island music

I’ll sing anything for you
Anything in Hawaii blue
You can make my dreams come true
To ukulele island music



Moonbeams Of Paradise (Larry W. Jones 03/08/2004) (song#2691)

Moonbeams of paradise
Shining from above
Moonbeams of southern seas
Defining island love

Moonbeams of paradise
And starlight gleaming too
Make dreams come true for me
And for you

Tomorrow we’ll sail far away
From trees that sway here on this shore
But forever and a day
Our hearts will play here evermore

Moonbeams of paradise
And starlight gleaming too
Make dreams come true for me
And for you

Moonbeams of paradise
Shining from above
Moonbeams of southern seas
Defining island love



Gabby Was An Island Boy (Larry W. Jones 03/08/2004) (song#2692)

Living on the isle, my friend
Where the air is fresh and clean
Wearin’ overalls next to his skin
He played slack key guitar mean

Gabby was an island boy
Pahinui was his name
And even death could not destroy
Gabby Pahinui’s fame

Gabby was an island boy
Kiho’alu was his appeal
He played at the luaus for fish and poi
Island songs the world could feel

Gabby had no match, you know
Over where the breezes blow
His dying only meant his songs and words
Would go on with the flow

All the island people say
They still can hear him play
Kiho’alu will never slip away
Gabby’s slack key music only grows

Gabby’s gone from Hawaii blue
He left his music for me and you
Slack key guitar music, kiho’alu
Gabby Pahinui was his name



Paper Hula Doll (Larry W. Jones 03/08/2004) (song#2693)

I’m gonna buy a paper hula doll
That I can have all to myself
And if other island boys ever call
I’ll just keep her on the shelf
Then the brown muscled guys in paradise
Will have to find real hula dolls that’s left

When I come home, she’ll be there
The truest hula doll anywhere
I’d rather buy for my paper hula doll a pearl
Than to fall for a fickle hearted real hula girl

I’ve had a few hula dolls on this shore
And a few have strolled away o’re and o’re
I just had a falling out with Moana too
That’s why I’m calling out that I’m blue
She strolled away like other hula dolls do

It’s tough to be alone in a tropic zone
It’s tough to love a hula doll who’s not your own

I’m gonna buy a paper hula doll
That I can have all to myself
And if other island boys ever call
I’ll just keep her on the shelf
Then the brown muscled guys in paradise
Will have to find real hula dolls that’s left

When I come home, she’ll be there
The truest hula doll anywhere
I’d rather buy for my paper hula doll a pearl
Than to fall for a fickle hearted real hula girl



Hawaii In The Spring (Larry W. Jones 03/08/2004) (song#2694)

Hawaii in the spring
Love is whispered on the tradewind air
Aloha means a lovely island love affair
And how lovely are your charms
Wnen my arms are surrounding you

Hawaii in the spring
Going to the luau dance
Every little glance will mean
Another chance for island romance

When the islands call
You can’t help but fall
The yellow moon is up above
Waiting for someone to fall in love

Blame just yourself if you’re alone
There’s no rust upon the moon
You have to trust the tropic zone
Will bring you a true love soon

Hawaii in the spring
Going to the luau dance
Every little glance will mean
Another chance for island romance

So, let your dreams to you bring
Hawaii in the spring



Oh, You Sailing Ship (Larry W. Jones 03/09/2004) (song#2695)

Oh, you dockside slip
Oh, you sailing ship
I’ve got a reservation
For a tropical destination

It’s beyond the western horizon
A place to spend life in paradise on

I want to see my home in old Hawaii
Where valleys are greener
And the air is cleaner
Where the ocean breezes
Blow where they please
And the seas peaceful motion
Sounds like island melodies

It’s beyond the western horizon
A place to spend life in paradise on

Oh, you dockside slip
Oh, you sailing ship
I want to be a home sweet islander
That’s where I want to settle down
Wrapped in the charms of my lover’s arms
In old Lahaina
Yes, in old Lahaina town



Girl Of My Heart (Larry W. Jones 03/09/2004) (song#2696)

Oh, where the breakers curl
There lives a little hula girl
And I love her true
Indeed I do

Although her island is far away
I know that she’ll be mine some day

Every sweet tuberose
Every bird of paradise knows
Aloha, I love her
Aloha, I love her true
And my heart dearly sighs
For the beauty of her eyes
Her polynesian eyes
Sweet paradise, my love

Girl of my heart, I love you
Never more will we part
Aloha, I love you, little hula girl
Sweet little hula girl
Sweeter that the tuberose
More than just a song can compose

Girl of my heart
Romance is such a work of art
Dance with me, entrance me
Come, be my island song
For here is where you belong
You and your island home
Will always be deep in my heart



Pretty Pualani (Larry W. Jones 03/09/2004) (song#2697)

The island queen in the island scene
Is you, only you
Oh, pretty Pualani, I’m speaking of you
Tradewinds breezing by, pause to sigh
They have an eye for you, and so do I

Island roses aren’t as fair as you
Oh, pretty Pualani, you know it’s true
I know just what I’m gonna do, ask you
If you will be my true love too

Oh, pretty Pualani, when you’re near
It makes no difference whether
Rain or shine, it’s always springtime weather
Pretty Pualani, you fill my heart with cheer

Island roses aren’t as fair as you
Oh, pretty Pualani, you know it’s true
I know just what I’m gonna do, ask you
If you will be my true love too

We’ll stroll the island sand together, Pualani
Listen to an island band or two
And as we stroll along, we’ll sing a song, Pualani
One that says Aloha, I love you



Penny Island Serenade (Larry W. Jones 03/09/2004) (song#2698)

Once I strolled by the window
Of a lovely island maid
She smiled as I played real slow
My penny island serenade

By the sea, I played to sweet Jenny
Endlessly, my penny island serenade

In her eyes my song would render
Sweet surrender as I played
And love in her heart it would engender
My penny island serenade

By the sea, I played to sweet Jenny
Endlessly, my penny island serenade

I dreamed that she was mine, so divine
My penny island serenade had spoken
Came the dawn, she was gone and by design
My poor heart was broken

In her eyes my song would render
Sweet surrender as I played
And love in her heart it would engender
My penny island serenade

Where palm trees sway, I pray endlessly
That she’ll remember, that island maid
When I strolled by her window and played
My penny island serenade



Majestic Palehua (Larry W. Jones 03/09/2004) (song#2699)

Majestic Palehua
Mountain of the Iliahi tree
Majestic Palehua
Oahu knows your beauty by the sea

Your top salutes the heavens
Resolute you seem to be
Guarding all of Waianae
And Honouliuli endlessly

Famous mountain is Palehua
Ancient voyagers heard your call
You will always be remembered
For you stand alone so tall

Majestic Palehua
Tradewinds caress your slopes
Majestic Palehua
In your shadow lives island hopes

Eucalyptus and the Iliahi
Fragrance is scented on the breeze
Palehua, mountain by the sea
Palehua, Guarding Waianae endlessly

Ha`ina mai ka puana lâ
Let the refrain be told
Of majestic Palehua
Guarding Waianae
Mountain of the Iliahi tree



Twenty Seven Hundred (Larry W. Jones 03/09/2004) (song#2700)

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

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



True Love Of Mine (Larry W. Jones 03/09/2004) (song#2701)

(Her)
Don’t throw a big luau for me
Don’t hold me too close when it’s dancing time
Don’t stroll with me too long by the sea
People might say you’re a true love of mine

(Him)
Don’t laugh with ease at every little thing
People might think you’ve had too much wine
Don’t let the breeze make you want to sing
People might say you’re a true love of mine

(Her)
If I start acquiring apron strings and rings
And paintings of islands in the spring
If I pick out a little cottage by the bay
People might say that we’ve set a day

(Both)
Well, everyone is inquiring about these things
They know that we both love sweet Maui chimes
So, I guess if they guess, that’ll be fine
Cause people know that you’re a true love of mine



A Polynesian Lullaby (Larry W. Jones 03/09/2004) (song#2702)

I watched as a flock of arctic terns
Flew to their summer home on their return
They were flying freely on the wing
Toward sunny southern isles
And I couldn’t help but sing
Oh, take me with you for awhile

Take me back there to that southern sky
Sing me a polynesian lullaby
There’s a tiki torch burning
Down on Tahiti’s harbor quay
Tell the island folks I’m yearning
To see them night and day

Let me fly with you on down
To that dear old island sand
Where the island folk are brown
And where was born this island man

My dreams are all wrapped up
In those polynesian island charms
Carry me back and fill my cup
With the love of someone’s empty arms

Keep those ukuleles playing
All the while til I get back
This time I’ll be staying
Forever in that little grass shack

Take me back there to that southern sky
Sing me a polynesian lullaby



Fish And Poi With Me (Larry W. Jones 03/09/2004) (song#2703)

Come to the luau down by the bay
Old Lahaina town is magic by the sea
We couldn’t wish more joy, as they say
Eatin’ fish and poi with me

The island’s so romantic, tropic moon above
The stars are bright on a night like this
Eatin’ fish and poi with someone you enjoy
Is something that just can’t be amiss

So, come to the luau, and let me call you dear
Aloha means that I love you when you’re near
Maybe baby, at the luau, you will always be
Eatin’ fish and poi with me

The island’s so romantic, tropic moon above
The stars are bright on a night like this
Eatin’ fish and poi with someone you enjoy
Is something that just can’t be amiss

So, come to the luau, and let me call you dear
Aloha means that I love you when you’re near
Maybe baby, at the luau, you will always be
Eatin’ fish and poi with me

Eatin’ fish and poi with me
Eatin’ fish and poi with me



Beautiful Mem’ry (Larry W. Jones 03/09/2004) (song#2704)

It’s night time on the island scene
Stars are in the sky fit for a queen
But the only bit that’s left to view
Is this beautiful mem’ry of you

At work in Honolulu most of the day
Or strolling all alone down by the bay
The world is a maze, my mind is a haze
What would I do without this mem’ry of you

It was last summer when I met you by the sea
My heart told me that my dream had come true
Now the island drummer beats a sad note for me
That repeats this beautiful mem’ry of you

You were gone like a dream taken flight
You took my heart and all my love that night
I remember your name, and that will have to do
It’s not the same, this beautiful mem’ry of you

You were gone like a dream taken flight
You took my heart and all my love that night
I remember your name, and that will have to do
It’s not the same, this beautiful mem’ry of you



Garden Island Dream (Larry W. Jones 03/10/2004) (song#2705)

A luau dance was being held
On Kauai, the garden isle
I felt a bump
My heart went thump when she said
I beg your pardon
And she said it with a smile

Then I saw a mokihana lei and moonbeams
Around a Kauai garden island dream

Steel guitars began to play
And I didn’t want to miss one
So, I just had to say
Could I please have this one

Then I saw there in my arms
A mokihana lei and moonbeams
I was enraptured by the charms
Of a Kauai garden island dream

Now we live in a little cottage
That’s filled with laughter
Tiki lights don’t use much wattage
And love is built with ever after

And she always makes me smile
Here on Kauai, the garden isle
Our love is flavored with the themes
Of mokihana lei and moonbeams



Shy Glances And Dances (Larry W. Jones 03/10/2004) (song#2706)

Shy glances, dances, luaus and island clothes
Are just a few of the things she loves
She loves brown eyes and nice guys
Who places flowers in her hair
Things I like to do for the girl I love

She loves the island weather
But that’s no surprise
I don’t have to ask whether
An island angel is in my eyes

Steel guitars, tropic stars
And luaus on Friday night
Are the kind of island things we love

She knows that she’s really
The girl I always dream about
And to me that’s not silly
Cause I love her without a doubt

Steel guitars, tropic stars
And luaus on Friday night
Are the kind of island things we love

She knows that she’s really
The girl I always dream about
And to me that’s not silly
Cause I love her without a doubt

Shy glances, dances
Shy glances, dances, humm



Island That I Love (Larry W. Jones 03/10/2004) (song#2707)

There will always be
An island that I love
Kauai isle in Hawaii
Everyone knows it is a dream

Beautiful is this island in the sea
A place where people fall in love
Miracles are sometimes seen
Just like the one I’m dreaming of

Anyone who’s been there
Won’t forget about her
Gentle tradewinds always blow
To give your heart a stir

Beautiful is this island in the sea
A place where people fall in love
Miracles are sometimes seen
Just like the one I’m dreaming of

And the golden glow of dawn
Paints the tropic skies above
Kauai is my isle, my own
The island that I love



Pretty And Blue (Larry W. Jones 03/10/2004) (song#2708)

Pretty and blue is the ocean over there
Pretty and blue, is the sky in Hawaii too
I’ve got to find my way back home
Feel the love that’s in the air
It’s pretty and blue where island love we share

My island baby is on my mind
I can see a flower in her hair
Every day serves to remind me
That my island baby is beyond compare

I want to hold her in my arms
Feel the softness of her long black hair
Cause pretty and blue and warm
Is Hawaii when she is there

I’ve got to find my way back home
Feel the love that’s in the air
It’s pretty and blue where island love we share

Pretty and blue is the ocean over there
Pretty and blue, is the sky in Hawaii too
I’ve got to find my way back home
Feel the love that’s in the air
It’s pretty and blue where island love we share



Polynesian Brown Eyes (Larry W. Jones 03/10/2004) (song#2709)

I thought I’d love never more
Then you strolled by on the shore
Polynesian brown eyes
Polynesian brown eyes

Island guys have always understood
That wahinis here sure look good
With polynesian brown eyes
Polynesian brown eyes

Saw you strolling by on the shore
You really swept me off my feet
Wanna stop by your cottage door
Tell you that you look so sweet
Polynesian brown eyes

Island guys have always understood
That wahinis here sure look good
With polynesian brown eyes
Polynesian brown eyes

Come stroll with me by the bay
There’s something that I want to say
Aloha, I love you
Polynesian brown eyes



Polynesian Flamingo (Larry W. Jones 03/10/2004) (song#2710)

On the island they call her flamingo
She’s so graceful strolling in the sun
She’s a polynesian flamingo
But no one yet her heart has won

When she strolls by
I see a vision of paradise
My heart’s not made of knotty pine
I wonder if her heart’s a lot like mine
I would make her mine if I could
It would be so fine if she would

When she strolls by
She moves with the grace of a flamingo
She’s a polynesian flamingo
She makes my heart take to flight
But she’s out of reach and out of sight

Maybe some day I’ll catch her eye
And make her my polynesian flamingo
Then my dreams will really fly
Like the wings of a bird in paradise
Like a polynesian flamingo
Polynesian flamingo



Pretty Islands (Larry W. Jones 03/10/2004) (song#2711)

Pretty islands, pretty oceans of blue
Are meant for your love and you
Pretty words of Aloha mean I love you
Pretty islands, pretty oceans of blue

Waikiki, nobody speaks a word to him
Market shoppers pass him on by
All alone, he wishes someone would talk
But they’re too busy give him a reply

Nobody stops, weather’s hot, getting dizzy
Time flies even here in paradise
Maui chimes are ringing with busy laughter
And after you’re gone, he breaks down and cries

Pretty islands, pretty oceans of blue
Are meant for your love and you
Pretty words of Aloha mean I love you
Pretty islands, pretty oceans of blue



Fair Lani (Larry W. Jones 03/10/2004) (song#2712)

Down in Manoa valley
Life is lived there in peace
Birds of paradise sing sweetly
And their notes do increase
Aloha ‘oe fair Lani
I bid goodbye where breezes blow
But I’ll dream of you, fair Lani
Wherever I go

Fair Lani, she won’t have me
But I understand
She wants a rich islander
A castle on island sand
Fine things I can’t give her
Wine and silver and gold
What’s mine is not for her
A mere cottage to have and hold

If I were a captain or better
And could leave island sand
I’d write fair Lani a letter
So my love she’d understand
I’d write it by the sea shore
While the tradewinds blow o’er
Then I’d dream of fair Lani
Wherever I go



Island For Two (Larry W. Jones 03/11/2004) (song#2713)

You and I could take the tropic sky
And put it over a tall palm tree
You’d be my girl, I’d be your island guy
A paradise for you and me

And for the moon, a yellow full balloon
You can pull on the string
Now can’t you see our little island in the sea
Would be a magical thing

We could gather rainbows in the spring
Look for a pot of gold just in case
And for a breeze I would be pleased
To blow some kisses to your lovely face

With all your charms and your arms
And everything else to think of
Our little island would be so warm
When you and I fall in love

We’ll send a message in a bottle
Don’t bother sending a rescue
And if they do, we’ll run full throttle
To hide on our island for two



Island Angel (Larry W. Jones 03/11/2004) (song#2714)

Where tradewinds blow, I saw you
I saw you as you strolled by the shore
You looked so appealing
My heart was revealing
That love it would be feeling evermore

As soon as I met you
And I said my Aloha to you
I heard sweet Maui chimes ring fifteen times
And rainbows had millions of hues

At last I found you, my island angel
Strolling in this paradise
Let my love surround you, my island angel
Through a heaven of love we will fly

In the arms of love we’ll be flying
Over island and valley and then
I’ll be under your spell
On this island we’ll dwell
And I’ll never be lonely again

I’ll be under your spell
On this island we’ll dwell
And I’ll never be lonely again



Black Ball Line (Larry W. Jones 03/11/2004) (song#2715)

Dear, I’m sailing the Black Ball Line
The weather’s cold, the ship is fine
I’m on watch from five til nine
And I love you

Yesterday was gales and rain
No ports of call, I can’t complain
Someday I’ll sail back home again
And I love you

What’s new in old Lahaina town
Write me soon if you’re able
The yardarm came crashing down
Poked a hole in the captain’s table
I’ll see you soon if I don’t drown
And I love you

Not much else to write about
So, I’ll blow the candle out, by the way
I think about you every day
And I love you

What’s new in old Lahaina town
Write me soon if you’re able
The yardarm came crashing down
Poked a hole in the captain’s table
I’ll see you soon if I don’t drown
And I love you

Not much else to write about
So, I’ll blow the candle out, by the way
I think about you every day
And I love you



Tropic Nights Tropic Stars (Larry W. Jones 03/11/2004) (song#2716)

Tropic nights and tropic stars
Tropic chords from slack key guitars
Drifting on the beauty that surrounds us

Tropic nights and tropic dreams
Tropic islands in the stream
And a cottage watching mountains
And the peaceful ocean scene

This island is where we’ll always be
The place that we’ll remember
Holding you so close to me
As long as life has burning embers

In the past I was sad and lonely
Believing love was for others only
But now at last I’ve found you
And the meaning of island love so true

This island is where we’ll always be
The place that we’ll remember
Holding you so close to me
As long as life has burning embers

In the past I was sad and lonely
Believing love was for others only
But now at last I’ve found you
And the meaning of island love so true



Peaceful Village (Larry W. Jones 03/11/2004) (song#2717)

It’s peaceful in my tranquil village
When I’m alone at break of day
But I never cease to only pray
That one day you’ll return to me
To only me
Return to lonely me

The tropic moon I still admire
The topic fills me with desire
In my tranquil village the tiki flame
Seems to still call out your name

It’s peaceful in my tranquil village
With just old memories of you
But at least each day I make it through
Hoping that you’ll return to me
To only me
Return to lonely me

The tropic moon I still admire
The topic fills me with desire
In my tranquil village the tiki flame
Seems to still call out your name

It’s peaceful in my tranquil village
In the luau pit the fires burn
I’ll admit that my heart still yearns
For your return to me
To only me
Return to lonely me



Slack Key Cowboy Joe (Larry W. Jones 03/11/2004) (song#2718)

Way out in Maui where the paniolos are
And the only friend to guide you is a tropic star
The roughest, toughest man by far
Is slack key cowboy Joe
His name of fame is from singin’ to the cows
Instead of just mooing, they moo wows
To island songs of kiho’alu when the moon is low

He always plays slack key music to the cattle
While they graze and he sings in his saddle
On a horse that’s underrated, almost sedated
And he packs a big revolver, a sure dissolver
The cows all stampede, forget to feed
When they hear his big gun blow
And the island folks all know
He’s a boot scootin’, shootin’ paniolo from Maui
Slack key cowboy Joe

Dressed up in his sunday best paniolo clothes
He rides all the way to Lahaina where he always goes
And every wahini in old Lahaina town is Joe’s
Cause he’s a slack key playin’, kiho’alu cowboy show
The cows all stampede, forget to feed
When they hear his big gun blow
And the island folks all know
He’s a boot scootin’, shootin’ paniolo from Maui
Slack key cowboy Joe (Danny Estocado)



Another Sunny Day (Larry W. Jones 03/11/2004) (song#2719)

It was in september when you moved to this island shore
I brought you a pineapple from the Dole plantation store
Then there came the rainy time, and you were feeling blue
So, to the tune of Maui chimes, I sang this song to you

Rain rain go away, come again some other day
Rain rain go away, bring my love another sunny day

Then came the sunny weather, there was no question whether
We would grow up as sweethearts, sweethearts in paradise
Through many island showers, I held your hand in mine
And we counted those spring flowers
As we sang along with Maui chimes

Rain rain go away, come again some other day
Rain rain go away, bring my love another sunny day

I sailed away for the Cape passage
We said a tearful Aloha ‘oe
Then one day I got your message
You said you wanted to be free
In my sorrow I knew that you married
Someone else you met some time
And yet my song hasn’t varied
I still sing along with Maui chimes

Rain rain go away
Come again some other day
Rain rain go away
Bring my love another sunny day



Rainbow Over The Island (Larry W. Jones 03/11/2004) (song#2720)

There’s a rainbow over the island
The skies are clearing to blue
There’s a rainbow over the island
And it’s shining, dear, for you

You’ll soon be hearing on the island
The melody of a lover’s song
Because I’m here on the island
Hand in hand with a love that’s strong

Let’s you and I go canoeing
Out across the peaceful bay
And I’ll tell you what I’m doing
Planning for our wedding day

There’s a rainbow over the island
The skies are clearing to blue
There’s a rainbow over the island
And it’s shining, dear, for you

Let’s keep our hearts close together
Tradewinds will blow sunny weather
There’s a rainbow over the island
And here’s a true love I have for you



Sunny In My Heart (Larry W. Jones 03/12/2004) (song#2721)

The moon is out, the stars are too
The night is dark in its every part
But there’s a light coming into view
Because it’s sunny, sunny in my heart

The weather man said clouds today
But he doesn’t know they’ll never start
When I met you down by the bay
It was sunny, sunny in my heart

Oh happy day, happy day
Aloha is what I heard you say

Monsoon rains will come and go
But warm tradewinds will always blow
And love in my heart will always flow
Because it’s sunny, sunny in my heart

Oh happy day, happy day
Aloha is what I heard you say

Monsoon rains will come and go
But warm tradewinds will always blow
And love in my heart will always flow
Because it’s sunny, sunny in my heart

Because it’s sunny
You brought the sunshine to my heart



Ramblin’ Island Rose (Larry W. Jones 03/12/2004) (song#2722)

Where the tradewind blows lives a ramblin’ rose
An island beauty growin’ wild
Birds of paradise just wink their eyes
At the island’s wayward child

She’s got the kind of charms
That can win your heart
But your heart don’t know the harms
To your dreams she can impart

I had to expose to my ramblin’ rose
What I’m just about to do
Where palm trees sway, she won’t get her way
Cause I knew how roses grew

I suppose that a ramblin’ rose
Knows how to grow as a trellis vine
Now I’m not jealous like a lotta fellas
But I’ll be zealous, there’ll be a trellis
Around that ramblin’ island rose of mine

She’s got the kind of charms
That can win your heart
But your heart don’t know the harms
To your dreams she can impart

I suppose that a ramblin’ rose
Knows how to grow as a trellis vine
Now I’m not jealous like a lotta fellas
But I’ll be zealous, there’ll be a trellis
Around that ramblin’ island rose of mine



My Sweet Moana (Larry W. Jones 03/12/2004) (song#2723)

I stroll down yonder by the sea
And wander about on the mountains high
An island girl over yonder waits patiently
I’m her island guy and she loves me

My sweet Moana, I hear those Maui chimes above
My sweet Moana, it rhymes with Aloha love
Your lips press mine, sweet as wine
And we stroll by the seaside there
I’ll always remember that you said you’re mine
When I placed the flower in your hair

My sweet Moana, I’ll meet you by Waimea waterfall
My sweet Moana, love has heard the island’s call
Then I awake at dawn to find you gone
My sweet Moana, I need more than a dream
I need you, my sweet Moana, for my own

Your lips press mine, sweet as wine
And we stroll by the seaside there
I’ll always remember that you said you’re mine
When I placed the flower in your hair

My sweet Moana, I’ll meet you by Waimea waterfall
My sweet Moana, love has heard the island’s call
Then I awake at dawn to find you gone
My sweet Moana, I need more than a dream
I need you, my sweet Moana, for my own



Real Island Love (Larry W. Jones 03/16/2004) (song#2724)

I’ll give you a precious diamond
I’ll buy you more island clothes
But what I’ll really give is love
The kind that grows and grows
Where the soft tradewind blows

I’ll give you lots of flowers
And one to place in your hair
But what I’ll really give is love
The kind that’s whispered on the air
The kind we both can share

Real island love, let it be real island love
The kind of love I feel whenever you are near

I’ll give you a fancy luau wedding
With birds of paradise on the wing
But what I’ll really give is love
Wrapped with a wedding ring

Real island love, let it be real island love
The kind of love I feel whenever you are near

I’ll give you a fancy luau wedding
With birds of paradise on the wing
But what I’ll really give is love
Wrapped with a wedding ring



Just A Little Time (Larry W. Jones 03/16/2004) (song#2725)

Aloha ‘oe, I hate to hear that you’re going
Aloha ‘oe, I hate to see our love stop growing
You know, dear, that I’ll miss you
Here where tradewinds are softly blowing

We haven’t known each other long
Why must we drift apart this way
Our love was like an island song
As sweet as steel guitars convey
But I guess I’ll say Aloha ‘oe baby
And hope that you’ll return some day

Aloha ‘oe, I hate to hear that you’re going
Aloha ‘oe, I hate to see our love stop growing
You know, dear, that I’ll miss you
Here where tradewinds are softly blowing

Aloha meant that you once loved me
But now you’ve had a change of mind
Aloha meant that you once loved me
But I guess it wasn’t the kind that binds
Maybe if you’d just reconsider
And give our island love just a little time



Red Tropic Moon (Larry W. Jones 03/16/2004) (song#2726)

Let’s take another stroll
Under the red tropic moon
Just another stroll
Before we have to part
Let me say Aloha ku’u ipo
Under the red tropic moon
Strolling with you sweetheart
For the dawn will be here soon

Let’s take another stroll
Under the red tropic moon
While steel guitars are playing
And palm trees swaying to and fro
I love you so, I’ll be saying
Here where soft breezes blow

While the music of the island fellows
Are playing their lover’s melody
We’ll watch the red tropic moon so mellow
As we stroll here by the sea

Let’s take another stroll
Under the red tropic moon
Just another stroll
Before we have to part
Let me say Aloha ku’u ipo
Under the red tropic moon
Strolling with you sweetheart
For the dawn will be here soon

Under the red red tropic moon



Dream Of Me (Larry W. Jones 03/16/2004) (song#2727)

Dream of me when tiki lights are gleaming
Dream of me when strolling by the bay
Nights are sweet when I’m alone and dreaming
I wonder if you ever dream of me

Island songs belong to those with love just starting
The sweetest days were island ways that used to be
Our Aloha ‘oe was the saddest word of parting
I wonder if you ever dream of me

I thought that you’d be mine forever
And that we together would face eternity
But now I wonder if you will ever
If you will ever dream of me

Another place, another face holds your heart, dear
Another smile, another isle somewhere in the sea
But if he breaks your heart, I’ll be right here
If you ever dream of me

Dream of me when tiki lights are gleaming
Dream of me when strolling by the bay
Nights are sweet when I’m alone and dreaming
I wonder if you ever dream of me



Islands Are Forever (Larry W. Jones 03/16/2004) (song#2728)

Breezes, blowing round the bend
Past the rainbow’s end
Islands are forever

Nights, filled by a tropic moon
Another will come real soon
Islands are forever

When golden years we comprehend
I’m sure we’ll wish that we were young again
On this island in the stream of time
To do things now that we did then

Clouds, how bright they are up in the sky
Like winging birds of paradise
Islands are forever

Waves, wash upon the golden shore
And they will forevermore
Islands, islands are forever

I’m so glad that you are mine
You make every day like summertime
You make my heart as happy once again
As the day when I met you way back when

Island love, hold out your hand to me
Some things will end, no never
My love for you is for eternity
Islands, islands are forever



All Along (Larry W. Jones 03/16/2004) (song#2729)

All along, I’ve always loved you
Here in this tropic zone where we first met
All along, you’ve kept me dreaming
And when I awake I have no regret

All along, I was glad I chose you
Those vows we made have all come true
As years go by, I’ll remember
All along, our love was true in Hawaii blue

All along, I’ve always loved you
Here in this tropic zone where we first met
All along, you’ve kept me dreaming
And when I awake I have no regret

Our sweet song is one of island love, dear
We can’t go wrong as long as love is near

All along, I was glad I chose you
Those vows we made have all come true
As years go by, I’ll remember
All along, our love was true in Hawaii blue



Kiss The Tuberose Goodnight (Larry W. Jones 03/17/2004) (song#2730)

Of a tuberose over in Hawaii I’ve been dreaming
And I see dark polynesian eyes still gleaming
While the bird of paradise sings his love song
For Leilani, my lost Leilani, my heart longs
And I dream that I feel her lips of wine
In Hawaiian isles where she once was mine
When the man in the moon
Comes to kiss the tuberose goodnight

Though my dreams are empty, sweet Leilani
The tuberose still blooms there by the shore
And I simply can’t forget you, sweet Leilani
For every night I dream of you some more
Dreams are all I have that still provide me
With a mem’ry of a world that once was right
I remember when you strolled beside me
When the man in the moon
Came to kiss the tuberose goodnight

When the man in the moon
Comes to kiss the tuberose goodnight
And tropic stars twinkle with their light
Polynesian eyes with love light shines
Paradise again is mine all mine
When the man in the moon
Comes to kiss the tuberose goodnight



Sweet Baby’s Isle (Larry W. Jones 03/17/2004) (song#2731)

Strollin’ on my sweet baby’s isle
Strollin’ on my sweet baby’s isle
Layin’ around this little grass shack
Til the Lurline comes steamin’ back
An’ I’ll be strollin’ on my sweet baby’s isle

I ain’t gonna haul no sugar cane load
No, I ain’t gonna work for awhile
I’ll lay around this little grass shack
Til the Lurline comes steamin’ back
An’ I’ll stroll on my sweet baby’s isle

Strollin’ on my sweet baby’s isle
Strollin’ on my sweet baby’s isle
Layin’ around this little grass shack
Til the Lurline comes steamin’ back
An’ I’ll be strollin’ on my sweet baby’s isle

My mama was a hula dancer with skill
Brother could surf big waves right on in
My daddy worked all day at the old sugar mill
Haulin’ all that cane in the warm tradewind

Strollin’ on my sweet baby’s isle
Strollin’ on my sweet baby’s isle
Layin’ around this little grass shack
Til the Lurline comes steamin’ back
An’ I’ll be strollin’ on my sweet baby’s isle



Rose Of Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 03/17/2004) (song#2732)

I see her standing by the seaside
Leilani with the dark brown eyes
I see her watching, longing, waiting
Where the deep blue ocean lies
An island song then stirs the silence
As the tradewind blows above
She listens for the dreamy cadence
The first sweet song of island love
Roses are growing in Hawaii
Kissed by the morning dew
Roses are blooming in Hawaii
But there was never a rose as you
Roses grow and die in summertime
And oceans may keep us far apart
But a rose will never die in Hawaii
The rose I hold deep in my heart
And years pass over island sands
Until shadows cover blue of skies
But I love to hold Leilani’s hands
And look into her dark brown eyes
And she sees the ocean by the seaside
Where we met in bygone years
Where the first island song of roses
Is the last song of love she hears
Roses are growing in Hawaii
Kissed by the morning dew
Roses are blooming in Hawaii
But there was never a rose as you
Roses grow and die in summertime
And oceans may keep us far apart
But a rose will never die in Hawaii
The rose I hold deep in my heart



My Lovely Hawaiian Rose (Larry W. Jones 03/17/2004) (song#2733)

I can hear the islands calling
While your tears are falling
Where the tradewind gently blows
Though your heart is filled with pain
I will return there once again
To you, my lovely Hawaiian rose

Out here the skies are overcast
But I’ll be standing before the mast
Sailing through the gale that blows
Through the rain there’ll be rainbows
And your tears won’t be in vain
Our love will find a sweet repose
For you, my lovely Hawaiian rose

Soon will come the day when you and I
Will both be free from tears to cry
We’ll live and laugh and love
Under the tropic moon and stars above

I’m now sailing there to find you
Break the chain of tears that bind you
Where the tradewind gently blows
The sails are tight up on the main
Our love will surely bloom again
My lovely Hawaiian rose



Luau Friday Night (Larry W. Jones 03/18/2004) (song#2734)

Went by myself to a luau show
Down by the bay where breezes blow
The luau show was outta sight
Same old luau Friday night

Then I made my Waikiki stop
Duke Kahanamoku coffee shop
All the friends I knew were outta sight
Same old luau Friday night

I just knew you would be true
When our love was new here on the isle
Believe me honey, that love not money
Is the only thing that’ll make me smile

How I wish you’d stroll along
Strollin’s fun, but not alone
Stars are the only light tonight
Same old luau Friday night

Only you on the shore
Will erase the bore of
A same old luau Friday night



Sea Of Sorrow (Larry W. Jones 03/18/2004) (song#2735)

The harbor lights don’t light the way
They don’t light the way for me
I’m like a ship on a stormy night
Drifting away from the sheltered lee

The sea of sorrow, drowning in loneliness
Memories I confess, of your sweet caress
There was a time when you were mine, dear
But now Maui chimes only bring me tears
There’s no way to climb above tomorrow
On this sea of sorrow

Where did I misplace your love and fail
How long must I embrace this lonely sail on

The sea of sorrow, drowning in loneliness
Memories I confess, of your sweet caress
There was a time when you were mine, dear
But now Maui chimes only bring me tears
There’s no way to climb above tomorrow
On this sea of sorrow

I’d give everything to sail back to your shore
Anything to feel your loving arms once more
Oh, let me return is my earnest plea
Set me free from this lonely sea

The sea of sorrow, drowning in loneliness
Memories I confess, of your sweet caress
There was a time when you were mine, dear
But now Maui chimes only bring me tears
There’s no way to climb above tomorrow
On this sea of sorrow



My True Love For Evermore (Larry W. Jones 03/18/2004) (song#2736)

Once I had an island love
That lived on Maui by the sea
Under the moon my island love
Strolled hand in hand with me

So I asked a tropic star
To please make my dream come true
I told how wonderful you are
To be my love in Hawaii blue

Now I know that true love always will
Fill my heart with love until
The last part of life itself’s no more
For my island love’s
My true love for evermore

So I asked a tropic star
To please make my dream come true
I told how wonderful you are
To be my love in Hawaii blue

Now I know that true love always will
Fill my heart with love until
The last part of life itself’s no more
For my island love’s
My true love for evermore



Let Me Come (Larry W. Jones 03/18/2004) (song#2737)

Let me come to the island that you dream on
I want to stroll hand in hand with you
Let me come to the island that you dream on
So darling, you can make my dreams come true

This mainland at night is oh, so lonely
In dreams you always come into view
Let me come to the island that you dream on
So darling, you can make my dreams come true

Let me come to the island that you dream on
At times like this I sure am missing you
Let me come to the island that you dream on
So darling, you can make my dreams come true

Your love could make my future oh, so bright dear
But just a memory will only bring more tears
Let me come to the island that you dream on
So darling, you can make my dreams come true

So darling, you can make my dreams come true



What I Offer To You (Larry W. Jones 03/18/2004) (song#2738)

Here’s what I will offer to you soon
It’s mine to give, Leilani
Something heavenly set in a velvet sky
I will offer to you the tropic moon
It’s mine to give, Leilani
And a tradewind breeze lullaby

I can’t offer to you a golden crown
I don’t have one to give, Leilani
What I offer is something truly rare
I offer to you a lovely wedding gown
It’s mine to give, Leilani
And a flower to place in your hair

What I offer to you are things from up above
Those I offer to bring along with my love

Here’s what I will offer to you soon
It’s mine to give, Leilani
Something heavenly set in a velvet sky
I will offer to you the tropic moon
It’s mine to give, Leilani
And a tradewind breeze lullaby

What I offer is something truly rare
I offer to you a lovely wedding gown
It’s mine to give, Leilani
And a flower to place in your hair

Leilani



Gentle Island Baby (Larry W. Jones 03/19/2004) (song#2739)

Gentle island baby, oriental island baby
You’re the way a gentle baby ought to be
Lovely in the twilight
Heavenly when it’s midnight
You could only be from an island in the sea

Squeeze me, don’t just tease me
Hold me close and please me
You’re an island dream of mine

Hold me in your arms, baby, charm me
And then do it one more time
Gentle island baby, oriental island baby
Gentle island baby mine

Squeeze me, don’t just tease me
Hold me close and please me
You’re an island dream of mine

Hold me in your arms, baby, charm me
And then do it one more time
Gentle island baby, oriental island baby
Gentle island baby mine



Lahaina Town Rain (Larry W. Jones 03/19/2004) (song#2740)

The tropic sun came tumblin’ down, remember
In old Lahaina town in september
In that Hawaiian island chain
In old Lahaina town in the rain

The tropic sun became a glowing ember
In old Lahaina town in september
The tiki flame could not be tamed
In old Lahaina town in the rain

Words of island love the tradewind whispered
We were holding hands when we watched sandpipers
Raindrops on the sand played a sweet refrain
In old Lahaina town in the rain

Spring now is here, and I still dream of september
In old Lahaina town in september
In that Hawaiian island chain
In old Lahaina town in the rain

Words of island love the tradewind whispered
We were holding hands when we watched sandpipers
Raindrops on the sand played a sweet refrain
In old Lahaina town in the rain

Spring now is here, and I still dream of september
In old Lahaina town in the rain
In old Lahaina town in the rain



Serenade At Twilight (Larry W. Jones 03/19/2004) (song#2741)

Serenade at twilight
Beneath an island cottage window
A serenade in the night
That I tenderly sang
On a tropic night long ago

The yellow moon was in the sky
Casting light on tuberoses
Alas, but she said Aloha ‘oe goodbye
Never would she be mine
And that’s how my island talk story closes

But oh, why does the tradewind still bring it
And oh, why does my broken heart sing it

Serenade at twilight
A serenade in the night
Each time I hear its refrain
My eyes cry for her again
My heart will forever pine
For that lost island love of mine



Seven Seas To Cross (Larry W. Jones 03/19/2004) (song#2742)

Seven oceans full of salt spray
Seven seas to cross
Sometimes I feel so far away
Sometimes I feel I’m lost

And sometimes in the dead of night
I look for a guiding star
Where is that sign, that guiding light
That will lead me to where you are

Tradewinds are calling your name
I answer with a word so true
Love is all that yet remains
Across seven seas for you

Sailing wild upon the ocean
A clipper ship before the wind
Across seven seas of emotion
I skip the waves toward you again

Tradewinds are calling your name
I answer with a word so true
Love is all that yet remains
Across seven seas for you

Seven seas to cross
Seven seas to cross



Circle Island Road (Larry W. Jones 03/24/2004) (song#2743)

There are millions of shining stars
In the southern tropic sky
Lining the heavens I am told
There is moonlight from on high
And tradewinds in the trees
Around Tahiti’s circle island road

There I have loved an island girl
A lovely island flower child
She was a precious Tahitian pearl
Her charms were polynesian styled

Sometimes I see her strolling by the sea
In a dream where tradewinds flowed
Laughter in her eyes, smiling heavenly
Around Tahiti’s circle island road

There I have loved an island girl
A lovely island flower child
She was a precious Tahitian pearl
Her charms were polynesian styled

There are millions of shining stars
In the southern tropic sky
Definng an island girl’s abode
I must return and ‘nere deny
The love that once between us flowed
Around Tahiti’s circle island road



Mandalay Moon (Larry W. Jones 03/24/2004) (song#2744)

You sound like you’re calling right here from this shore
Even though I know you’re another ocean far away
All I can do is stroll around this lonesome floor
While I whisper words my heart longs to say

It’s times like this when I feel so close to you
I can almost smell the fragrant flower in your hair
And though you’re there in Hawaii blue
You’re always in my heart and your love is living there

That tropic moon and those stars that you see
Are the same ones I see shining here on the bay
And I hear your voice whispered on the breeze
Here where the tradewinds sway the trees in Mandalay

There are islands where lovers stroll hand in hand
And islands where lovers stroll alone
There are islands where goodbye was never planned
And islands for lovers far away from home

Soon I’ll return to the islands that I knew
For this loneliness is more than I can bear
And this song that I write is just for you
You’re always in my heart and your love is living there

That tropic moon and those stars that you see
Are the same ones I see shining here on the bay
And I hear your voice whispered on the breeze
Here where the tradewinds sway the trees in Mandalay
Where the tradewinds sway the trees in Mandalay



Hawaiian Goodbye (Larry W. Jones 03/24/2004) (song#2745)

Waiting for the ship named Lost Romance
I guess it’s only me to blame
I never gave true island love a chance
Tradewinds blew out love’s tiki flame
Aloha ‘oe was all she said
Both our hearts were broke there by the sea
When she spoke Hawaiian goodbye to me

Life and island love has passed me by
I hate to think that it’s all over
But the ship Lost Romance is nigh
On white silver sands for a rover
Aloha ‘oe was all she said
Both our hearts were broke there by the sea
When she spoke Hawaiian goodbye to me

Schemes and dreams
Tradewinds blew out love’s tiki flame
I sailed away from love with island themes
And by now she’s forgotten my name
Aloha ‘oe will always cloak my memory
When she spoke Hawaiian goodbye to me

I left my heart in old Maui
When the sun was going down
I left true island love by the sea
Crying in old Lahaina town

Aloha ‘oe was all she said
Both our hearts were broke there by the sea
When she spoke Hawaiian goodbye to me
When she spoke Hawaiian goodbye to me



My Island Lady (Larry W. Jones 03/24/2004) (song#2746)

My life is now filled with laughter
Her smile is something to delight
We will build our love on here after
On this isle both day and night

I found her when life had no meaning
Strolling like a dream my way
She filled my heart with song and singing
Just like the sun of island days

She is my island lady
I love her gentle island ways
She is my island lady
And I’ll love her all my days

And when pressures seem too hard to bear
She helps me not to sigh
She’s as sweet as the flower in her hair
And she helps our love to fly

She is my island lady
I love her gentle island ways
She is my island lady
And I’ll love her all my days

She is my island lady
I love her gentle island ways
She is my island lady
And I’ll love her all my days



Early Island Morning (Larry W. Jones 03/24/2004) (song#2747)

She strolls barefoot on the shore
When it’s early island morning
Strolling barefoot by the bay
The dew is still upon the flowers
When it’s early island morning
As she goes strolling on her way

Her long dark hair is hanging down
When the sun wakes up early island morning
Her long dark hair is hanging down
In the new found island light

She goes strolling by my window
When it’s early island morning
As she goes strolling on her way
Some day my love won’t be in limbo
No more emptiness or mourning
On an early island morning one fine day

Then I’ll give her all my love
My true love for her will burn so bright
She’s the only one I’m dreaming of
Early island morning, noon and night

She goes strolling by my window
When it’s early island morning
As she goes strolling on her way
Some day my love won’t be in limbo
No more emptiness or mourning
On an early island morning one fine day



She’s The Reason (Larry W. Jones 03/25/2004) (song#2748)

Got my first koa guitar when I was sixteen
Island slack key music was made for me
For going to the luau I sure was keen
To play slack key for my hula queen

She’s the reason for the things I do
I like island slack key music called kiho’alu
I like to play my koa guitar and she likes it to
She likes kiho’alu and I like the view

Bought me a surfboard a little too long
So we both surfed in the middle just like a song
We surf on my surfboard in Hawaii blue
She likes to surf and I like the view

She’s the reason for the things I do
I like my surfboards a little too long
I like to surf in Hawaii blue
She likes to surf and I like the view

I got tired of listening to island reggae rock
So she tuned it over to K-POI radio
Now we listen to kiho’alu around the clock
When we hear the Gabby Pahinui show

She’s the reason for the things I do
I like the Gabby Pahinui show
I like the same things that she likes too
She likes kiho’alu and I like the view

She’s the reason for the things I do
She likes me and I like the view
She likes me and I like the view



But I’ve Lost You (Larry W. Jones 03/25/2004) (song#2749)

I’ve got your garland, the flower lei you gave to me
And it still speaks of love, on this island in the sea
But something has changed in Hawaii blue
I’ve got your garland, but I’ve lost you

I’ve got your flower that you placed in my hair
And it still smells the same, as when you placed it there
But something has changed in Hawaii blue
I’ve got your flower, but I’ve lost you

I still hear a melody
Here by the sea
But where tradewinds blow
I know that you’ve set me free

I’ve hear those Maui chimes, that you once played for me
And they still sound the same, on the tradewind breeze
But something has changed in Hawaii blue
I hear sweet Maui chimes, but I’ve lost you

I still hear a melody
Here by the sea
But where tradewinds blow
I know that you’ve set me free

I’ve hear those Maui chimes, that you once played for me
And they still sound the same, on the tradewind breeze
But something has changed in Hawaii blue
I hear sweet Maui chimes, but I’ve lost you



Harbor Of Your Smile (Larry W. Jones 03/25/2004) (song#2750)

Here in the harbor of your smile
I have found a peaceful island song
Seems like it took a million miles
Strolling this old world alone

Dreams seemed to never stay
But what I feel just can’t be wrong
I’ve found where gentle breezes play
I have found a peaceful island song

From you I’ll never stray
I’ll stay here in the harbor of your smile
Words could not convey
My love for you here on this isle
My heart is anchored here to stay
In the harbor of your smile

Dreams seemed to never stay
But what I feel just can’t be wrong
I’ve found where gentle breezes play
I have found a peaceful island song

From you I’ll never stray
I’ll stay here in the harbor of your smile
Words could not convey
My love for you here on this isle
My heart is anchored here to stay
In the harbor of your smile



Tahiti My Native Island (Larry W. Jones 03/25/2004) (song#2751)

Oh, Tahiti, my native island
Away, you rolling ocean
Tahiti is my native island
Away, tradewinds blow, ‘cross th’ southern ocean

Oh, Tahiti, how far I’ve wandered
Away, you rolling ocean
Tahiti, how far I’ve wandered
Away, tradewinds blow, ‘cross th’ southern ocean

Oh, Tahiti has blue and shining waters
Away, you rolling ocean
Tahiti has blue and shining waters
Away, tradewinds blow, ‘cross th’ southern ocean

Oh, Tahiti, your daughters are lovely
Away, you rolling ocean
Tahiti, your daughters are lovely
Away, tradewinds blow, ‘cross th’ southern ocean

Oh, Tahiti, my heart longs for you
Away, you rolling ocean
Tahiti, my heart longs for you
Away, tradewinds blow, ‘cross th’ southern ocean

Oh, Tahiti, I’ll ‘nere more leave you
Away, you rolling ocean
Tahiti, I’ll ‘nere more leave you
Away, tradewinds blow, ‘cross th’ southern ocean



Islands Of The Sea (Larry W. Jones 03/25/2004) (song#2752)

Waves are breaking, shore birds awaking
In Hawaii blue when the sun is beaming
Twilight comes stealing, oh what a feeling
When I start my nightly dreaming
I see my island where Aloha love’s supreme

Islands of the sea, I hear your calling
Islands of the sea, in dreams I recall
In dreams I picture long canoes returning
It seems my heart is always yearning
For your golden sand where I used to roam
For ohana family and the love I’ve known
Back to mountains and valleys waiting there for me
Islands of the seas, I’m coming home

Over the ocean I see the shoreline
Somewhere in the crowd, someone is mine
I see the lei she has for greeting
Soon our arms, each will be meeting
She knows our love is still divine

Islands of the sea, I hear your calling
Islands of the sea, in dreams I recall
In dreams I picture long canoes returning
It seems my heart is always yearning
For your golden sand where I used to roam
For ohana family and the love I’ve known
Back to mountains and valleys waiting there for me
Islands of the seas, I’m coming home



Polynesian Star Of Mine (Larry W. Jones 03/25/2004) (song#2753)

Polynesian star, I’m so in love with you
Sometimes I wonder who and where you are
But then I always knew you’d be there
Polynesian star

You didn’t see me at the luau show
I watched you while seated in a crowded row
And I remembered long ago when you were mine
But I knew I wasn’t up to par
Polynesian star

Is it the moonlight or the spotlight in your eyes
Sometimes you don’t seem to know your way
But maybe there will come a day in paradise
When you will think of me anyway
Polynesian star

And when that day comes to pass
And you remember who you are at last
I’ll be here on the isle, polynesian star
I’ll be here to help you smile
And make your life worthwhile
Polynesian star

And when that day comes to pass
And you remember who you are at last
I’ll be here on the isle, polynesian star
I’ll be here to help you smile
And make your life worthwhile
Polynesian star of mine



Hand In Hand (Larry W. Jones 03/25/2004) (song#2754)

See the moon in the twilight
Shining on the bay
It’s always there as if to say
That I will always love someone
And that someone will always love me
We’ll be loving each other
Here on our isle in the sea

Oh, our little grass shack might look funny
But it didn’t cost us much money
And we’ll be strolling along
Here in the sand
Hand in hand

We’re not just here dreaming
And we’ll never be scheming
And we’ll be strolling along
Here in the sand
Hand in hand

Whenever the islands call
You can bet we’ll answer them all
The weather is warm in each other’s arms
That’s why we’ll never fall
And why true love is never ending

We’re the same as when we started blending
And we’ll be strolling along
Here in the sand
Hand in hand

And we’ll be strolling along
Here in the sand
Hand in hand



At The Luau (Larry W. Jones 03/25/2004) (song#2755)

Luau (La-la-la-la)
Luau (La-la-la-la)
It’s too hot to work in the island sun
So I just shirk and have a lotta fun
At the luau

The luau ends, almost island mornin’
Now my friends, I can’t face the dawnin’
Awake sometimes by noon, time for romancin’
And after romancin’ comes the dancin’
Under the moon at the luau

Luau (La-la-la-la)
Luau (La-la-la-la)
It’s too hot to work in the island sun
So I just shirk and have a lotta fun
At the luau

Say, I’m gonna hop to it
Get myself up and do it
But when I contemplates work, I hates work
Awake sometimes by noon, time for romancin’
And after romancin’ comes the dancin’
Under the moon at the luau

Luau (La-la-la-la)
Luau (La-la-la-la)
It’s too hot to work in the island sun
So I just shirk and have a lotta fun
At the luau

Awake sometimes by noon, time for romancin’
And after romancin’ comes the dancin’
Under the moon at the luau



Since I Found My Island Baby (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2004) (song#2756)

Since I found my island baby
My life’s been rearranged
Since I found my island baby
My life’s been rearranged
People tell me, old Lahaina town has changed
Well, this I tell you true
Since I found my island baby
I’m happy in the island sand
Yeah, since I found my island baby
I’m a happy island man

Breezes whisper that I’ve loved you
Since the world began
So, let me whisper to you

Everything thing I need
Is under the tropic sun
I love you, yes indeed
You’re my only one

Since I found my island baby
My life’s been rearranged
Since I found my island baby
My life’s been rearranged
People tell me, old Lahaina town has changed
Well, this I tell you true
Since I found my island baby
I’m happy in the island sand
Yeah, since I found my island baby
I’m a happy island man



Sweet Leilani Jean (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2004) (song#2757)

Oh, the tropic moon is softly glowing
Birds of paradise sing their song
And the valley stream softly murmers
As gently it flows along
Sweet tuberoses the breeze is blowing
In the island valleys green
There I love to stroll along
With my lovely island queen
My bonnie, sweet Leilani Jean

Sweet tuberoses the breeze is blowing
In the island valleys green
There I love to stroll along
With my lovely island queen

Yet, it’s not the tropic moon of summer
Nor birds of paradise joyful song
Nor the valley stream’s sweet music
That makes my love for her so strong
It’s her smile that comes so freely
On the flowery island scene
When I stroll along
With my lovely island queen
My bonnie, sweet Leilani Jean

Sweet tuberoses the breeze is blowing
In the island valleys green
There I love to stroll along
With my lovely island queen
My bonnie, sweet Leilani Jean
My bonnie, sweet Leilani Jean



Spam And Poi And Kisses (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2004) (song#2758)

One night my darling I did woo
When she was sad and lonely
She looked so kind and lovely too
I loved her and her only

We heard Maui chimes at luau time
And this is what I told my misses
As long as I live, to you I’ll give
Luaus with spam and poi and kisses

I asked for her hand with heart apace
What island man could refuse her
I’m glad no one else was in my place
So no one else could choose her

She swung her head and shyly said
What would you give your island misses
As long as I live, to you I’ll give
Luaus with spam and poi and kisses

We wed down on the sand
Aloha love was surely present
Now we’re island girl and man
Nothing could be more pleasant

Her cheerful smile, my heart beguiles
My dearest love, my island misses
True bliss we share here on the isle
At luaus with spam and poi and kisses



Dearest One To Me (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2004) (song#2759)

When the harvest moon is on the ocean
I will sail, love, back to thee
For of all the island’s beauties
You are the dearest one to me
Though wild winds may whip the ocean
Still my ship will fight the sea
And in island tunes of my devotion
I’ll sing love songs of you and me
When all hope was seen decreasing
One love helped my heart get through
Your love has been without ceasing
Through every stormy sea I knew
It was you, my sweet Leilani
You mean all the world to me
And however storms may vary
I’ll come sailing back to thee

You have been my love since childhood
On our island in the sea
Our love bloomed as in a wild wood
As Aloha is an emblem of love to thee
In your youth you were the dearest
As the seasons went and came
I always wanted you the nearest
Though island love had yet not a name
Then with your beauty so unfolding
There burned a love within my heart
Now my life is within your holding
And until death it ‘nere shall part
When the harvest moon is on the ocean
I will sail, love, back to thee
For of all the island’s beauties
You are the dearest one to me



Strollin’ With You (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2004) (song#2760)

Well, I never felt more like strollin’ with you
Cause I always thought that you’d like it to
I love you, that’s why I’m feelin’ this way

Well, I never felt more like holdin’ you tight
Cause my love is strong for you tonight
It’s true, I’ve got to tell you the news

The tropic moon and stars sure do shine
A dream and a song are now all mine
There was nothing left for me to do
But to fall in love over you (fall over you)

Well, I never felt more like I do today
I love you so and I’m here to stay
It’s true, I’ve got to tell you the news

Well, I never felt more like strollin’ with you
Cause I always thought that you’d like it to
I love you, that’s why I’m feelin’ this way

Well, I never felt more like holdin’ you tight
Cause my love is strong for you tonight
It’s true, I’ve got to tell you the news

The tropic moon and stars sure do shine
A dream and a song are now all mine
There was nothing left for me to do
But to fall in love over you (fall over you)

Well, I never felt more like I do today
I love you so and I’m here to stay
It’s true, I’ve got to tell you the news



He Kanaka Maui E (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2004) (song#2761)

I’m on my own, sailing with the wind
A day is over and a new begins
A distant rover of the seven seas
But the farther I go
The farther my Maui island is from me
He kanaka Maui e, Aloha no ku’u Lahaina kaona
I am a Maui man and I love Lahaina town
Sails may reach for the wind and clouds
But I’ll keep my heart in old Lahaina town

Horizons disappear behind and open ahead
Arctic nights are cold, I long for a warmer bed
Daylight dawns but there’s nothing to see
But the farther I go
Nothing but dreams of islands familiar to me
He kanaka Maui e, Aloha no ku’u Lahaina kaona
I am a Maui man and I love Lahaina town
Sails may reach for the wind and clouds
But I’ll keep my heart in old Lahaina town

He kanaka Maui e, Aloha no ku’u Lahaina kaona
I am a Maui man and I love Lahaina town

The whaling’s done and I’m sailing home
Love in my heart for old Maui has grown
The waters are warm and the wind is calm
Hear the breeze whisper through the palms
He kanaka Maui e, Aloha no ku’u Lahaina kaona
I am a Maui man and I love Lahaina town
Sails may reach for the wind and clouds
But I’ll keep my heart in old Lahaina town

He kanaka Maui e, Aloha no ku’u Lahaina kaona



Sweet Honolulu Sue (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2004) (song#2762)

A paniolo drove a herd of longhorns
To the docks down Honolulu way
That’s what cowboys do over in Hawaii nei
He met a hula gal by the Honolulu zoo
The skies were blue and her eyes were polynesian too
He asked her name and she said Honolulu Sue

Honolulu Sue, Honolulu Sue
Skies are blue and your eyes are polynesian too
I’d swap my lio and kaula for you
Honolulu Sue, Honolulu Sue
There ain’t no hula gal as true as you
My sweet Honolulu Sue

He asked if she had a ku’u ipo, she named every guy she knew
But still he started courtin’ his sweet Honolulu Sue
This paniolo stole a kiss and she said she wanted two
He asked her if she loved him, she said you know it’s true

Honolulu Sue, Honolulu Sue
Skies are blue and your eyes are polynesian too
I’d swap my lio and kaula for you
Honolulu Sue, Honolulu Sue
There ain’t no hula gal as true as you
My sweet Honolulu Sue

Now he knows he owes a lot to Oahu
Cause he came to town and he found Honolulu Sue
He’s gonna rope and tie ‘er up using his old lio
He’s gonna put his brand on sweet Honolulu Sue

Honolulu Sue, Honolulu Sue
Skies are blue and your eyes are polynesian too
I’d swap my lio and kaula for you
Honolulu Sue, Honolulu Sue
There ain’t no hula gal as true as you
My sweet Honolulu Sue



Luau Lady (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2004) (song#2763)

I fell in love with a luau lady
Who danced the hula by the sea
Luau lady, I don’t mean maybe
Falling in love was easy for me

Strolling through the cane fields
Songs whispered through palm trees
You’re the only one I’m dreaming of
You’re the only one for me

Hula dancer, sweet romancer
Bestow your island love on me
Hula dancer, you’re the answer
Who made dreams come true for me

I see your face in the sunlight
Moonlight brings sweet dreams to me
Luau lady, hula dancer tonight
Falling in love was easy for me

Hula dancer, sweet romancer
Bestow your island love on me
Hula dancer, you’re the answer
Who made dreams come true for me



How Can I Smile (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2004) (song#2764)

How can I smile
When my heart is aching
How can I smile
When my heart is beyond the reef breaking
Clouds cover the skies in paradise
I’ll never smile tomorrow
There’ll be too much sorrow
I’ll never see the tropic sun shine for me

My face is filled with sadness
She took away every trace of gladness
And now I fear there’ll be more tears
So, what’s the use in trying
How can I smile
When my broken heart is crying
Since she left me alone on the isle
How can I smile

How can I smile
When my heart is aching
How can I smile
When my heart is beyond the reef breaking
So, what’s the use in trying
How can I smile
When my broken heart is crying
Since she left me alone on the isle
How can I smile



Smoke In Paradise (Larry W. Jones 03/27/2004) (song#2765)

Here in Hawaii blue
You made all my dreams come true
You made such a lovely bride
That fact can’t be denied

Sometimes I wondered if I’d find
True love since some say love is blind
You filled all of love’s desires
There was no disguise

Island love is like a tiki flame
And when you set my heart on fire
There was smoke in paradise

Friends see you strolling at my side
Where waves are rolling with the tide
And they know true love can’t be denied

Sometimes I wondered if I’d find
True love since some say love is blind
You filled all of love’s desires
There was no disguise

Island love is like a tiki flame
And when you set my heart on fire
There was smoke in paradise

There was smoke in paradise
There was smoke in paradise
There was smoke in paradise



Strollin’ Around With You (Larry W. Jones 03/27/2004) (song#2766)

I like simple island things
Barefoot toes and bikini strings
Steel guitar bands and luau swings’
And strollin’ around with you

Well, I like kalua and K-POI radio
Babbling brooks and
Humuhumunukunuapa’a fishes nose
And strollin’ around with you

Strollin’ around with you
Here in Hawaii blue
Doin’ what island lovers do
Whenever they’re strollin’ around

I like a lotta warm island sand
No joke, I’m your island man
Love is so easy to understand
Strollin’ around with you

You know, I like ukulele strings
Friends on the island who never change
And dancing at the luau swings
And strollin’ around with you

Strollin’ around with you
Here in Hawaii blue
Doin’ what island lovers do
Whenever they’re strollin’ around



Shorebird (Larry W. Jones 03/27/2004) (song#2767)

Set in the peaceful waters clear and warm
An island lass is strolling with her charms
The shorebird runs along and sings his song
And tells me that my heart is safe from storms

The night was young and we were young then too
The moon was on the sea and I knew love was true
But now my heart is broken from within
My true love was just another dream upon the wind

Shorebird, stretch your tiny legs and run away
And take your song of island love back with you
Where the tradewind breezes play
My one and only love found someone new
My heart misunderstood and now I wish I could
Just run away with you

The breeze up in palm trees seem to say
That I should have never let my heart hold sway
So, little shorebird, take me with you when it storms
Away from this island since my love’s no longer in my arms

Shorebird, stretch your tiny legs and run away
And take your song of island love back with you
Where the tradewind breezes play
My one and only love found someone new
My heart misunderstood and now I wish I could
Just run away with you

Yeah, now I wish I could just run away with you



Island Hula Girl (Larry W. Jones 03/27/2004) (song#2768)

Hey-hey-hey, hula girl
My pretty little island hula girl
Hoo-hoo-hoo, the change in latitude
Sure gave a better attitude for me
Hey-hey-hey, hula girl
My pretty little island hula girl
My heart is afire with a burning desire
For you here by the sea

The islands were calling when love was falling
On this empty heart of mine
You were as fresh as a shower there
With a flower in your hair
You were strolling where the waves were rolling
And you sure went to my head
That’s when I said

Hey-hey-hey, hula girl
My pretty little island hula girl
Hoo-hoo-hoo, the change in latitude
Sure gave a better attitude for me
Hey-hey-hey, hula girl
My pretty little island hula girl
My heart is afire with a burning desire
For you here by the sea

Hey-hey-hey, hula girl
My pretty little island hula girl
My heart is afire with a burning desire
For you here by the sea



Moonlight Dancing (Larry W. Jones 03/27/2004) (song#2769)

Lay your head upon my shoulder
Let me hold you in my arms
Go ahead and dream while we’re dancing
And you can thrill me with your charms

Hear the steel guitars playing
Island music by the sea
Ku’u ipo, darling, hear me saying
You feel so heavenly

Moonlight dancing where breezes blow
Island sand adds to the sensation
Moonlight dancing, I’m sure you know
Island bands and you are my glad inspiration

Hear the steel guitars playing
Island music by the sea
Ku’u ipo, darling, hear me saying
You feel so heavenly

You and I should dance forever
While I hold you in my arms
You can dream while we’re dancing
And you can thrill me with your charms



Aloha Au Ia ‘Oe (Larry W. Jones 03/27/2004) (song#2770)

Softly, tradewinds whisper Aloha au ia ‘oe
The sound of your voice calls through my dreams
Softly, on the gentle breeze

Softly, through my cottage window
Nani pili lani mahina comes the moonglow
Bringing love from southern seas

An island where we stroll hand in hand
Where rainbows on golden sand
Color a new found island love

Oh, ku’u Aloha, I feel the warmth of your lips on mine
And your fragrance softly scents the air like wine

I close my eyes and you’re always in my arms
Oh, ku’u lei, nohea e ke Leilani
Your charms form the music of my heart

Softly, as I hold you close to me
The sound of your voice calls through my dreams
Softly, on the gentle breeze, Aloha au ia ‘oe



Gently (Larry W. Jones 03/27/2004) (song#2771)

Gently, gently let me come to you
Let me kiss your lips so tenderly
Gently, let me gently turn the key
That opens up your heart for my melody

As the tradewinds blow gently
Let me tell you that I’ll leave you never
Gently, let me feel the warmth of your caress
E ku’u lei, e ke Aloha mau loa forever

So, gently, let me come to you gently
Let me kiss your lips so tenderly
Gently, let me gently turn the key
That opens up your heart for my melody

As the tradewinds blow gently
Let me tell you that I’ll leave you never
Gently, let me feel the warmth of your caress
E ku’u lei, e ke Aloha mau loa forever

So, gently, let me come to you gently
Let me kiss your lips so tenderly
Gently, let me gently turn the key
That opens up your heart for my melody

Gently, let me gently turn the key
That opens up your heart



Isle Of Broken Dreams (Larry W. Jones 03/27/2004) (song#2772)

Where’s the island love that you promised in the sand
It’s gone like the early monsoon squall
You will surely fall like this broken hearted island man
One day when the islands fail to call

My love was dashed upon the reef on an isle of broken dreams
Sinking in sorrow ’round an island in the stream
Dashed upon the reef on an isle of no return
My island love has died on an isle of broken dreams

I never dreamed that island love would ever grow cold
I thought our love was gold just like at a rainbow’s end
But I was blind to think that I’d forever have you to hold
And island love on golden shores will never come again

My love was dashed upon the reef on an isle of broken dreams
Sinking in sorrow ’round an island in the stream
Dashed upon the reef on an isle of no return
My island love has died on an isle of broken dreams

One day you’ll know how it feels when your heart cries
When your heart is dashed upon the reef
There won’t be a chart to steer you back to paradise
There’ll be no cheer to save you from your grief

My love was dashed upon the reef on an isle of broken dreams
Sinking in sorrow ’round an island in the stream
Dashed upon the reef on an isle of no return
My island love has died on an isle of broken dreams



Welcome Back (Larry W. Jones 03/27/2004) (song#2773)

I used to live in the shadow of sorrow
There was no sunshine on this isle in the sea
I used to think there was no tomorrow
Until today when you strolled back to me

I knew that I could never forget you
Since that first day when we met
I always dreamed of this day when I let you
Walk out of my life with regret

I used to live in the shadow of sorrow
I thought tomorrow was all in vain
But now thay you have returned
My heart won’t need to yearn
Welcome back to my isle once again

I knew that I could never forget you
Since that first day when we met
I always dreamed of this day when I let you
Walk out of my life with regret

I used to live in the shadow of sorrow
I thought tomorrow was all in vain
But now thay you have returned
My heart won’t need to yearn
Welcome back to my isle once again



Could I Be In Love With You (Larry W. Jones 03/27/2004) (song#2774)

There’s someone who loves you
I wonder if you know who
There’s someone who loves you
I wish you knew
I wonder if you ever wonder
Could I be in love with you

For every time you stroll by me
I’m like a lost ship on the sea
I make it my goal to be near you
But you never look at me
I wonder if you ever wonder
Could I be in love with you

For every time you stroll by me
I’m like a lost ship on the sea
I make it my goal to be near you
But you never look at me

There’s someone who loves you
I wonder if you know who
There’s someone who loves you
I wish you knew
I wonder if you ever wonder
Could I be in love with you



A Love That’s True (Larry W. Jones 03/27/2004) (song#2775)

If you see storm clouds on the horizon
And you think life is turning blue
Put your hand in mine on the island
And I’ll show you how to stroll on through

And if you’re not sure of tomorrow
Or whether love will find you there
Let me take care of any sorrow
There’ll always be a flower in your hair

Just stroll with me here by the sea
I’ll fulfill all of your needs
A love that’s true you’ll find in me
In not just words but every deed

If you feel you need a rainbow
I’ll bring you one along with gold
For on this isle where tradewinds blow
Faithful to my vows I’ll always hold

Just stroll with me here by the sea
I’ll fulfill all of your needs
A love that’s true you’ll find in me
In not just words but every deed

A love that’s true you’ll find in me
In not just words but every deed



That Old Tradewind (Larry W. Jones 03/28/2004) (song#2776)

Well, I thought I’d get over you when I went to sea
But there’s somthing in that old tradewind
That just won’t let me be
I got a packet, a seaman’s jacket
From an island girl that I once knew
It must have been a racket from that old tradewind
Cause I was wishing that it came from you

There’s something in that old tradewind
That says I’ll never love again
There’s something in that old tradewind
That says my heart will never mend
There’s something in that old tradewind
That I never knew
There’s something that will never end
And that’s my love for you

Well, it was only yesterday I tasted lips of wine
But there’s somthing in that old tradewind
That said it’s the end of the line
I’ve got these embers I remember
Of an island love that I once knew
Now it’s december and that old tradewind
Remembers that I’m still in love with you

There’s something in that old tradewind
That says I’ll never love again
There’s something in that old tradewind
That says my heart will never mend
There’s something in that old tradewind
That I never knew
There’s something that will never end
And that’s my love for you



Somewhere Over There (Larry W. Jones 03/28/2004) (song#2777)

Somewhere, there’s an island
Somewhere, an island for the two of us
Where there is peacefulness and balmy air
It’s waiting there for us
Somewhere over there

Somewhere, there’s an island
Somewhere, island time for the two for us
Let’s take the time, make it yours and mine
Maui chimes will ring for us
Somewhere over there

Somewhere, a slower pace of living
Aloha love is love that’s giving
We can face the future with thanksgiving
Somewhere over there

Somewhere, there’s an island
Somewhere, time will make a place for the two of us
Take my hand and we’ll stroll together there
Take my hand and we’ll feel the tradewind air
Some way, some day
Somewhere over there



Right Here My Love (Larry W. Jones 03/28/2004) (song#2778)

Right here, my love, the island has songs to sing
Tradewinds blow over the slopes in spring
Right here, the rainbows bring dreams of gold
And there are streams, waters that never run cold

Right here, sweet leis to greet, my love
Right here, right here in Hawaii blue

Come stroll with me as we did long ago
Warm are tradewinds, soft are the breezes that blow
And remember when, we were so young back then
Right here, my love, we’ll sing island songs again

Right here, sweet leis to greet, my love
Right here, right here in Hawaii blue

Come stroll with me as we did long ago
Warm are tradewinds, soft are the breezes that blow
And remember when, we were so young back then
Right here, my love, we’ll sing island songs again



I Know A Place (Larry W. Jones 03/28/2004) (song#2779)

I know a place, under the tropic moonlight
I see a face, one who’s thinking of me tonight

I know a place, where someone is saying a prayer
Love’s sweet embrace, someday will find us there

Tradewinds that blow, sailed us apart too soon
It helps to know, we’re under the same tropic moon

I think again, of sweet Waimea lullaby
And I dream again, under the same tropic sky

I know a place, where love will see us through
There’s not a trace, or reason for feeling blue

I know a place, that’s made just for me and you
I know a place, where your dreams and mine come true

Tradewinds that blow, sailed us apart too soon
It helps to know, we’re under the same tropic moon

I think again, of sweet Waimea lullaby
And I dream again, under the same tropic sky

I know a place, where love will see us through
There’s not a trace, or reason for feeling blue

I know a place, that’s made just for me and you
I know a place, where your dreams and mine come true



Dreaming Dreams Of You (Larry W. Jones 03/28/2004) (song#2780)

The tiki light is burnin’ low
Moonbeams are softly fallin’
I wonder if the tradewinds know
I hear the islands callin’

Oh, how I wish that you were near
To help me sing a song or two
I’d be happy just to have you here
Instead of dreaming dreams of you

Stars are shining in the velvet sky
I remember what they meant to me
Embers still remain that makes me cry
In love letters that you sent to me

Even though I know we’re far apart
I always wonder if you’re lonely too
I’d be happy for a brand new start
Instead of dreaming dreams of you

The tiki light is dyin’ now
The velvet night time cloak is liftin’
It really doesn’t matter anyhow
Dreams of island love are quickly driftin’

Oh, how I wish that you were near
To help me sing a song or two
I’d be happy just to have you here
Instead of dreaming dreams of you
Instead of dreaming dreams of you



Before Too Long (Larry W. Jones 03/31/2004) (song#2781)

Before too long, maybe tomorrow, before too long
Love will find the two of us
We will borrow a love song for the two of us
Warming and transforming, love will be informing us
That the two of us are one, before too long

So, for now, two islands in the stream
Must be contented with dreaming up love schemes
And before too long, maybe soon
We will borrow the moon for the two of us
There will be no sorrow in love’s tune, before too long

Before too long, maybe tomorrow, before too long
There will come to the two of us
Dreams that will come true for the two of us
But for now, the present is so very pleasant
And before too long, a wedding present for the two of us

Before too long, maybe tomorrow, before too long
Love will find the two of us
We will borrow a love song for the two of us
But for now, the present is so very pleasant
And before too long, a wedding present for the two of us

So, for now, two islands in the stream
Must be contented with dreaming up love schemes
And before too long, maybe soon
We will borrow the moon for the two of us
There will be no sorrow in love’s tune, before too long



Those Southern Isles (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2004) (song#2782)

Southern isles, have you strolled upon those southern isles
Felt the tradewind breeze blowing through palm trees
Whispering tunes that set your love aglow-oh

Southern isles, where life is good in paradise
It’s no surprise that life goes at a slower pace
Nothing could replace the ways of those southern isles

Southern isles, I have strolled upon those southern isles
I have seen the beauty there that meets the eye
Found in the air and sky of old talk stories told awhile

Old island man, he and his vahini still strolls the sand
Places flowers in her hair with his sun brown weathered hand
You never see a frown when they’re together on those southern isles

Smells so good, those southern isles always smell so good
Sweet tiare blossoms tell of love that’s not misunderstood

Southern isles, have you strolled upon those southern isles
Felt the tradewind breeze blowing through palm trees
Whispering tunes that set your love aglow-oh

Southern isles, where life is good in paradise
It’s no surprise that life goes at a slower pace
Nothing could replace the ways of those southern isles

Southern isles, I have strolled upon those southern isles
I have seen the beauty there that meets the eye
Found in the air and sky of old talk stories told awhile
About those southern isles



Brown Polynesian Eyes (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2004) (song#2783)

There’s a little grass shack
On old Maui isle
And it’s been callin’ me back
To that girl for awhile

Two brown polynesian eyes
I’ve been longin’ to see
Oh, the girl from paradise
She’s waitin’ for me

Two brown polynesian eyes
Twinkle with island love
Birds of paradise there fly
Around one I’m dreamin’ of

Oh, if I could just fly
Through those blue skies above
I’d fly where I could sigh
In the arms of my love

Two brown polynesian eyes
I’ve been longin’ to see
Oh, the girl from paradise
She’s waitin’ for me

Two brown polynesian eyes
Twinkle with island love
Birds of paradise there fly
Around one I’m dreamin’ of

Oh, if I could just fly
Through those blue skies above
I’d fly where I could sigh
In the arms of my love



Whisper Gently Love (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2004) (song#2784)

Whisper gently love, when soft tradewinds start
I feel the song that only island love imparts
In this world we own, a gentle tropic zone
Whisper gently love, of love we’ve never know

Gentle island days, warmed by the tropic sun
Gentle island ways, that have now begun

Whisper gently love, to the skies of paradise
Vows of love here in our eyes
Will be just as sincere until the day we die
You are mine and I am yours because
You came into my heart to whisper gently love

Gentle island days, warmed by the tropic sun
Gentle island ways, that have now begun

Whisper gently love, to the skies of paradise
Vows of love here in our eyes
Will be just as sincere until the day we die
You are mine and I am yours because
You came into my heart to whisper gently love



Steps (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2004) (song#2785)

When I dream at night
I descend the steps down to the sea
I dream that you are there with me
Strolling close to me
I can see us blending on the steps down to the sea
Spending time to fall in love down by the sea

In dreams I found a new love
When the islands started calling me
Then I was just love’s pris’ner
On the steps down to the sea
So, you won’t have to wonder where I’m waiting
On the isle of no return
For you will find me under love relating
To the steps that cause my heart with love to burn

I can see you there on the steps down to the sea
Soon you and I will share the words before you
For I will say that I adore you
And you will say that you’re in love with me

So, you won’t have to wonder where I’m waiting
On the isle of no return
For you will find me under love relating
To the steps that cause my heart with love to burn

I can see us blending on the steps down to the sea
Spending time to fall in love down by the sea



Stairway To The Moon (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2004) (song#2786)

There’s a golden beam of moonlight
High up in the tropic sky
And if we look real close, it just might
Lead us to a velvet lullaby
The sky is heavenly velvety blue
And maybe we’ll go there, me and you

We’ll build a stairway to the moon
Don’t have to wait til june
Island love will be beside us to guide us
On the stairway to the moon with a song

We’ll be hearing steel guitars playing
Stars will be appearing saying
Climb on up and do some cheering
On the stairway to the moon where we belong

We’ll sail away in a canoe for two
Out across the bay until
We reach that golden moonbeam we view
And climb that golden beam to a moonlight thrill

We’ll build a stairway to the moon
Don’t have to wait til june
Island love will be beside us to guide us
On the stairway to the moon with a song

We’ll be hearing steel guitars playing
Stars will be appearing saying
Climb on up and do some cheering
On the stairway to the moon where we belong



Moon On The Run (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2004) (song#2787)

In the tropic sky glows a moon
Over islands near and far
Calling with a lover’s tune
Like the sound of steel guitars

Moon bright, moon light, glowing in the tropic sky
Your beams are falling on islands calling
Moon bright, moon light, growing love in paradise
Making couples swoon as love is falling from the sky

The moon runs and hides from the rain
The man in the moon plays his game
He doesn’t understand the pain
Of island love that doesn’t work out right

Moon bright, moon light, glowing in the tropic sky
Why love beams are falling, I don’t know why
Moon bright, moon light, moon upon the sea
Why do your beams of love never fall on me

The moon will come from some celestial chart
I can feel the darkness break my heart apart
I know there used to be a moon for everyone
But I didn’t know my moon was on the run

The moon runs and hides from the rain
The man in the moon plays his game
He doesn’t understand the pain
Of island love that doesn’t work out right

The moon will come from some celestial chart
I can feel the darkness break my heart apart
I know there used to be a moon for everyone
But I didn’t know my moon was on the run



A Wahini Beautiful (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2004) (song#2788)

My island love
Is a wahini beautiful
Her smile is reflective of
True love so dutiful

Gentle are her eyes
How they show me love
There is sweetness in her voice
Like a gentle breeze of love

I have searched the seas and islands too
In the service of love’s duty
Nowhere did I find such as you
A wahini beautiful

Your beauty is of gold
Like the glowing moon in heaven
Your smile is to behold
In all the oceans seven

Ha`ina ka puana la
Let the refrain be told
He mele nani wahini no ku`u lei
Of a wahini beautiful, my love
Me kou nani minoaka
And of her beautiful smile



Faded Island Song (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2004) (song#2789)

Now comes the purple curtain of twilight time
It’s certain to color my heart, I know
For love is just the moonglow of sweetest wine
Found only in music of island days of long ago

At times like this I reminisce in lonely nights
Day dreaming of some old island song
A sweet melody that still follows me
In dreams I’m on the isle where I belong
Back when our island love was fresh and new
Now only in the moonglow of a faded island song

Those were island days of long ago
Love was wrapped in a beautiful sarong
Now I’m trapped with nowhere to go
In the moonglow of a faded island song

Strolling in the sand under moonlight pale
Hand in hand listening to island tunes
Birds of paradise sang a fairy tale
Of endless love where sweet tuberoses bloom

Even though I know my dreams are all in vain
I still hear the islands call your name so strong
And your memory will for all times remain
In the moonglow of a faded island song



Eyes Of Starlight (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2004) (song#2790)

Eyes of starlight
Seems to me your eyes are full of starlight
Bright as the tropic stars at midnight
I’ll wait for you until
You say my dreams you will fulfill

Eyes of starlight
Eyes that flash of paradise
Makes the hopes within my heart rise
You know my heart adores you
Please show that yours is for me too

My lonely life was always dealt
The empty feeling that I felt
When I gazed at stars up in the skies
Now I know the only thing I want to do is melt
In the glow of starlight in your eyes

Eyes of starlight
Your lips are sweet where tradewinds blow
You have all the beauty of the rainbow
Makes no difference where bright stars are
Yours are right here and above par
Oh, eyes of starlight, how lovely your eyes are

My lonely life was always dealt
The empty feeling that I felt
When I gazed at stars up in the skies
Now I know the only thing I want to do is melt
In the glow of starlight in your eyes

Eyes of starlight
Your lips are sweet where tradewinds blow
You have all the beauty of the rainbow
Makes no difference where bright stars are
Yours are right here and above par
Oh, eyes of starlight, how lovely your eyes are



Each Day New (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2004) (song#2791)

Island love has awesome power
Heaven itself is in your eyes
Tradewinds and waves are gently meeting
In paradise under tropic stars
Our heartstrings are softly beating
Like two island steel guitars

Love is here for all who endeavor
To sing sweet island lullabies
It’s clear our love will last forever
Underneath the moon in paradise

How many nights like this will come again
Love stories with the glories that we know
Lonely hearts we’ll never know again
Old talk stories say that island love will grow

So tonight we won’t fret about tomorrow
Since we met, we know our love is true
We won’t let the future bring us sorrow
The love we get will blossom each day new

How many nights like this will come again
Love stories with the glories that we know
Lonely hearts we’ll never know again
Old talk stories say that island love will grow

So tonight we won’t fret about tomorrow
Since we met, we know our love is true
We won’t let the future bring us sorrow
The love we get will blossom each day new



House Of Poi (Larry W. Jones 04/03/2004) (song#2792)

Oh for food of joy, I employ
The polynesian House of Poi
Every time I see the sign
I’m a welcome island boy

Just take the number seven bus
That goes down by the sea
Enjoy the House of Poi with the rest of us
Polynesian boys like me

In Waikiki by the banyan tree
The House of Poi there waits for me
To this place of joy so many fly
When they come to stroll in paradise
How about some laulau with opihi
Poi and huapia sure sticks with me
Huli huli chicken for my lunch
Wash it down with mele kalikimaka punch

Oh for food of joy, I employ
The polynesian House of Poi
Every time I see the sign
I’m a welcome island boy

Through the day in every way I’ve feasted
On sweet hawaiian bread that’s yeasted
Konbu maki makes my belly roll
Pupu teriyaki soothes my very soul

Oh for food of joy, I employ
The polynesian House of Poi
Every time I see the sign
I’m a welcome island boy



A Rover To Her Isle (Larry W. Jones 04/03/2004) (song#2793)

The ocean is far too wide to swim it over
To where the island of my love there lies
If I could fly, I wouldn’t have to think it over
I’d be a rover to her isle of paradise

I’ll row a boat that was made for two
And make it float if I don’t die
To her isle remote where love is true
And I’ll quote love words to make her sigh

If I could fly, I wouldn’t have to think it over
I’d be a rover to her isle of paradise

Her love is gentle, sweet and kind
Like island flowers when they’re new
Our vows will be the kind that bind
Two hearts together when love is true

I’ll row a boat that was made for two
And make it float if I don’t die
To her isle remote where love is true
And I’ll quote love words to make her sigh

Her love is gentle, sweet and kind
Like island flowers when they’re new
Our vows will be the kind that bind
Two hearts together when love is true



Kimo Kanaka (Larry W. Jones 04/03/2004) (song#2794)

I heard, I heard an old island man say
Kimo Kanaka naka from Hawaii nei
Today, today the anchor hauls away
Kimo Kanaka naka from Hawaii nei

Oh, this ship will bring me sorrow
Kimo Kanaka naka from Hawaii nei
There’ll be more hard work tomorrow
Kimo Kanaka naka from Hawaii nei

Oh, we’re west coast bound to the Frisco bay
Kimo Kanaka naka from Hawaii nei
Oh, we’re sailin’ from old Lahaina town today
Kimo Kanaka naka from Hawaii nei

We’re on the Falls of Clyde with a dandy crew
Kimo Kanaka naka from Hawaii nei
We’ll hear the islands call when we get through
Kimo Kanaka naka from Hawaii nei

We’re haulin’ sugar to the golden state
Kimo Kanaka naka from Hawaii nei
The captain’s bawlin’ at the poor first mate
Kimo Kanaka naka from Hawaii nei

A sailor’s life is a life with low pay
Kimo Kanaka naka from Hawaii nei
We’ll work on ships til our dying day
Kimo Kanaka naka from Hawaii nei



Moon Shined On Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 04/03/2004) (song#2795)

We were like actors in a play
Your lips now remind of delight
When the moon shined on Hawaii last night

One important factor I can say
Your eyes were full of starlight
When the moon shined on Hawaii last night

It wasn’t from practice that our act is so heavenly
The place wasn’t packed, it was just you and me
Center stage was on the page for love, dear

My heart beat like a drummer
My arms held you on a summer night
When the moon shined on Hawaii last night

It wasn’t from practice that our act is so heavenly
The place wasn’t packed, it was just you and me
Center stage was on the page for love, dear

My heart beat like a drummer
My arms held you on a summer night
When the moon shined on Hawaii last night



Old Pacific Paradise (Larry W. Jones 04/03/2004) (song#2796)

It’s a long sail from the cape to old Maui
There will be gales to defy
It’s a long sail home to old Lahaina in Maui
That sweet pacific paradise
Oh, my sweet old pacific paradise

The league line is drifting by slowly
In dark skies I’m feeling so down
Lonely days are greeting me only
I dream of meeting old friends back at home
I can’t pretend that I don’t miss my island home

I pause to think of my love’s sweetest smile
The wind draws me closer to old Maui isle
I think of my home in old Lahaina in Maui
Where ohana is the love in the valleys
Where ohana is the love on Maui isle

I can’t say just how long til I’ll be there
The winds are strong but it will take some time
I hear the song of tradewinds in the air
And the feeling that I’ve spent too much time
The feeling that I’ve spent too much time

It’s a long sail from the cape to old Maui
There will be gales to defy
It’s a long sail home to old Lahaina in Maui
That sweet pacific paradise
Oh, my sweet old pacific paradise



Alone On The Shore (Larry W. Jones 04/03/2004) (song#2797)

Alone in the sand, I watch as the tide goes out
Alone as the band plays Aloha ‘oe to you
Just dreaming dreams and feeling blue

The ship that you boarded has sailed out to sea
My tears have afforded no relief I can see
For you have taken all of me

The crashing of the waves
Dashing upon the reef
Say that you won’t return to save
My heart from yearning grief

Why, oh, why must I gaze any more
You have sailed away and left me alone on the shore

The crashing of the waves
Dashing upon the reef
Say that you won’t return to save
My heart from yearning grief

Why, oh, why must I gaze any more
You have sailed away and left me alone on the shore



Streets Of Lahaina (Larry W. Jones 04/03/2004) (song#2798)

As I strolled out in the streets of Lahaina
As I strolled out in old Lahaina one day
I spied a young sailor wrapped up in white linen
And around his neck a lei of death on display

I see by your outfit that you are a sailor
These words he did say as I slowly strolled by
Come stay here beside me and hear my talk story
I’ve been shot in the breast and I know I must die

My friends and my family don’t live where tradewinds blow
They know not where their dear sailor boy has gone
I sailed here to old Maui for to be a paniolo
But I’m just a young sailor and I know I’ve done wrong

He was a young sailor in search of some new sand
He sailed across oceans in search of a bride
His youth was his glory, so brave his talk story
But gambling he tried and it’s for that he died

Oh, beat the drum slowly, play lowly the ukulele
Let me wear the lei of death as I’m carried along
Here in the valley isle, lay the sod o’re me so vile
I’m a young sailor and I know I’ve done wrong

As I strolled out in the streets of Lahaina
As I strolled out in old Lahaina one day
I spied a young sailor wrapped up in white linen
And around his neck a lei of death on display



Another Polynesian Dream (Larry W. Jones 04/03/2004) (song#2799)

When evening arrives and twilight falls
I come alive when polynesia calls
Fot it keeps calling me to sail to southern seas
In another polynesian dream

I was strolling in paradise
With starlight of love softly in the scene
Even though I know it’s just a disguise
In another polynesian dream

Music was playing from steel guitars
There was the twinkling of a million stars
Palm trees waved as we strolled by the bay
And a lovely wahini wore my flower lei
Graceful were her soft hula hands
Enchantment was in polynesian sands

Tomorrow will bring sorrow when we part
Aloha ‘oe to you, ku’u ipo sweetheart
Meet me again tonight under moon beams
In another polynesian dream

Palm trees waved as we strolled by the bay
And a lovely wahini wore my flower lei
Graceful were her soft hula hands
Enchantment was in polynesian sands

Tomorrow will bring sorrow when we part
Aloha ‘oe to you, ku’u ipo sweetheart
Meet me again tonight under moon beams
In another polynesian dream



Twenty Eight Hundred (Larry W. Jones 04/03/2004) (song#2800)

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

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