My Hawaiian Island (Larry W. Jones 05/22/2004) (song#3001)


Far across a deep and peaceful ocean
I know a cottage on an island fair
It sits among the swaying palm trees
And my dreams are still returning there

On lonely days when I’m so far away
I think of her back there on that shore
On that island fair where breezes play
One day I must return for evermore

My Hawaiian island
My dear Hawaiian island in the sea
Sweet memories of golden sand
In my dearest dreams will always be

My Hawaiian island
My dear Hawaiian island in the sea
I sing Aloha
I sing Aloha to my Hawaiian island
And the love I know is there for me



Until Then (Larry W. Jones 05/23/2004) (song#3002)

Until the moon falls from the sky
Until the oceans all run dry
Until then I’ll be loving you

Until the tropic sun forgets to glow
Until a child forgets to grow
Sweetheart, I’ll be adoring you

You are the dream for which I live
The one to whom my love I give
Just to know that you love me too

Until the islands in the stream
Forget that lovers need to dream
Until then I’m yours if you’ll be mine

You are the dream for which I live
The one to whom my love I give
Just to know that you love me too

Until the stars all fall to earth
Until pure gold has lost its worth
Until then I’m yours if you’ll be mine

Until then I’m yours if you’ll be mine



Until I Stroll Again With You (Larry W. Jones 05/23/2004) (song#3003)

Until I stroll again with you
Please don’t give away your charms
For if my wishes all come true
You’ll be back here in my arms

Until I kiss again your lips of wine
Please don’t give away your heart
When I return dear, please be mine
And let the islands play their part

Oh, how it broke your heart and mine
When I said goodbye and had to go
Just remember words we spoke that time
When Aloha ‘oe meant I love you so

Until I stroll again with you
Like we did that magic night
My promise to you dear, is true
For you’re my guiding light of life

Oh, how it broke your heart and mine
When I said goodbye and had to go
Just remember words we spoke that time
When Aloha ‘oe meant I love you so

Until I stroll again with you
Like we did that magic night
My promise to you dear, is true
For you’re my guiding light of life



Until I Met You (Larry W. Jones 05/23/2004) (song#3004)

There was an island in the sea
But I never heard it calling
No, I never heard it at all
Until I met you

There was a rainbow in paradise
But I never saw it shining
No, I never saw it at all
Until I met you

Then I heard steel guitars
And smelled the fragrant tuberoses
I discovered the tropic stars
And the love that night discloses

Sweet Maui chimes were all around
But I never heard them ringing
I never heard them in old Lahaina town
Until I met you

Then I heard steel guitars
And smelled the fragrant tuberoses
I discovered the tropic stars
And the love that night discloses

Sweet Maui chimes were all around
But I never heard them ringing
I never heard them in old Lahaina town
Until I met you



Livin’ On Island Time (Larry W. Jones 05/23/2004) (song#3005)

I slipped off my shoes
And felt the warm sand under my feet
I took off my suit coat
And I must say it felt really neat
I found an island where tradewinds blow
And I found the time for taking it slow

I threw away my watch
And found there was more than nine to five
I opened up my heart
And found a love that makes me feel alive
My latitude’s been rearranged
And my attitude’s been changed
For livin’ on island time

Time for livin’ on island time
Time for tastin’ love and wine
This time it’s more than five to nine
Livin’ on island time

I threw away my watch
And found there was more than nine to five
I opened up my heart
And found a love that makes me feel alive
My latitude’s been rearranged
And my attitude’s been changed
For livin’ on island time

Time for livin’ on island time
Time for tastin’ love and wine
This time it’s more than five to nine
Livin’ on island time



Love Is Just Like Time (Larry W. Jones 05/23/2004) (song#3006)

Time is not something that waits
It never even hesitates
It comes from the future
And glides on into the past
It doesn’t wait, that’s for sure
For anything that comes in last

Like the sun up in the sky
It just rolls on and on
Time is not to be denied
So, why wait til love is gone

Love is just like time, it seems
Like oceans flow past islands in the stream
Each moment that we miss is down the drain
And a love like this might never come again

So, let’s don’t waste a second more
Let’s taste of love here by the shore
And since time itself will never pass away
We’ll know true love for us will stay

Love is just like time, it seems
Like oceans flow past islands in the stream
Each moment that we miss is down the drain
And a love like this might never come again

So, let’s don’t waste a second more
Let’s taste of love here by the shore
And since time itself will never pass away
We’ll know true love for us will stay



Romeo And Juliet (Larry W. Jones 05/27/2004) (song#3007)


Dark shades of night are falling
Palm trees are all a-calling
Old island folks are all a-sleeping
Tropic stars are up there peeping

Now’s the time for dreaming
An outing to be a-scheming
Now that the time is here
And the yellow moon is on the sea
Come along and stroll, my dear
Come sing love’s song with me

Arise from off your pillow
Moonlight supplies its beams so mellow
Come stroll along down by the sea
Come sing love’s song with me

Down by the silver sea we’ll stray
Down where the ukuleles play
And when I kiss you in love’s garden
I won’t have to beg your pardon
Come stroll along down by the sea
Come sing love’s song with me

If I can be your island Romeo
I’ll let you be my island Juliet
Here on the isle where breezes blow
Love’s story hasn’t been told yet
Come stroll along down by the sea
Come sing love’s song with me



An Island Love (Larry W. Jones 05/27/2004) (song#3008)

Island girls on many shores
Strolled on past my open door
But I’m glad you came along
And to you I dedicate this song
To an island love I’ve never known before

Of island girls of whom I dreamed
Each dream was doomed, it seemed
And how was I to know
A love like ours would grow
An island love I’ve never known before

Tradewinds of change are blowing
No longer will I have to stray
Loneliness exchanged for love is growing
Your sweet love has carried me away

You’re the island girl who cared for me
You have filled my life with ecstasy
The love for you within my heart
Will always be a part
Of an island love I’ve never known before

Tradewinds of change are blowing
Loneliness exchanged for love is growing

You’re the island girl who cared for me
You have filled my life with ecstasy
The love for you within my heart
Will always be a part
Of an island love I’ve never known before



To Be An Island Man (Larry W. Jones 05/27/2004) (song#3009)

What does it take
To be an island man
A gentle heart and a hand to shake
In island sand
It’s easy when all you want
Is something to give
For life is not to flaunt
Island life is simple to live
That’s what it takes
To be an island man

Some folks are so blind
But an island man can see
There’s no cloak on the island kind
He’s just what he seems to be
Tenderness in an island man
Doesn’t mean he’s weak, but strong
Gentleness in island sand
Speaks of love in his island song
That’s what it takes
To be an island man

An island man is one who’s real
Life is not only what you are
Sometimes it’s more of what you feel
When you’re strolling under the tropic stars
Tenderness in an island man
Doesn’t mean he’s weak, but strong
Gentleness in island sand
Speaks of love in his island song
That’s what it takes
To be an island man



A Lost Island Love (Larry W. Jones 05/27/2004) (song#3010)

Lonely hours I share
With moments of despair
Wishing that I could share
A moment with one for whom I care

An island love, lost island love
My heart is having to deal
With this emptiness that I feel
For a lost island love

For someone to kiss
For a sweet island miss
On an isle so far away
I haven’t smiled since that day
My thoughts return to where breezes play
For a lost island love

An island love, lost island love
My heart is having to deal
With this emptiness that I feel
For a lost island love

If I were a king
I would not wish for fortune or fame
I would wish for only one thing
To rekindle that same tiki flame
For a lost island love

I would wish for only one thing
To rekindle that same tiki flame
For a lost island love



Deserving Of You (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2004) (song#3011)

The dream of my life
Is to be deserving of you
Your love is supreme in my life
Am I worthy of you

Should I take a chance
Ask you for this dance
Could you and I find romance
In a love deserving of you

My every dream you control
You’re here in my heart, my soul
My goal is to preserve love that’s true
And to be deserving of you

Like the bay fills up with the sea
My heart fills with love when you’re with me
I want to be all I can be
In a love deserving of you

Like the bay fills up with the sea
My heart fills with love when you’re with me
I want to be all I can be
In a love deserving of you



Die Without Your Love (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2004) (song#3012)

I feel four walls surround me
Shadows steal and fall around me
Alone, my thoughts are only of
When I will die without your love

Is island love to be forbidden
Is what I feel inside to be hidden
If so, then I’m to be guilty of
A wish to die without your love

But oh, I want to live eternally with you
Or this dream will haunt me when I’m blue
But if the choice is made, and dreams must fade
Then I must confess, a life of loneliness
Unless I am blessed
I will die without your love

A lonely island in the stream
Shadowed by the mist of broken dreams
Kissed only by the waves thereof
Will surely die without your love

When I hear the islands call
There is only one I’m thinking of
I must return before I fall
Before I die without your love

When I hear the islands call
There is only one I’m thinking of
I must return before I fall
Before I die without your love



My Island Rose Is You (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2004) (song#3013)


An island rose grows well with tropic sun and rain
And any nose knows it smells as sweet as sugar cane
And one thing I know is true
My island rose is you

A song with only words just don’t belong
It takes music to sing, it’s true
The tradewind blows the music for my song
My island rose is you

A tiki flame puts out a lovely glow
There’s no doubt your name means love to me
That same old island love from long ago
Will be the same new love into eternity

Two lips exist just to be kissed
By two more lips when love is true
And I insist the tradewind knows
My island rose is you

A tiki flame puts out a lovely glow
There’s no doubt your name means love to me
That same old island love from long ago
Will be the same new love into eternity

Two lips exist just to be kissed
By two more lips when love is true
And I insist the tradewind knows
My island rose is you



At The Luau Show (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2004) (song#3014)

When you cast your eyes on rice and poi
You’re in paradise, you betcha boy
It sure is nice when they employ
Island food at the luau show

And if your appetite is big
You’ll make room for kalua pig
A kumu hula will show you how
At the luau show

Huli huli and good kim chee
Will make you swoon down by the sea
Lomi lomi salmon and lau lau
Are cooked in ti leaves perfectly
Under the moon at the luau show

Mahi mahi and mango bread
Is all that needs to be said
Pipikaula makes quite a spread
At the luau show

Pupu and teriyaki beef
Will fill the plate of an island chief
Poke ahi and taro will take a bow
At the luau show

Hula girls will dance for you
You might find romance for two
It’s the island way anyhow
At the luau show



Young Island Charms (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2004) (song#3015)

These words I say of your young island charms
Which my eyes view so fondly today
If tomorrow they’re few, don’t be of alarm
Though beauty of flowers will all fade away

You would still be adored on this island shore
Even if loveliness fade as it will
For around each deepening shade there will be more
Of heartstrings to entwine my love still

It is not only now when your beauty is shown
And your face is unspoiled by a tear
That true love deep in the soul will be known
For in time I will love you more dear

True island love is not love that forgets
It’s like the tradewind that constantly flows
Like a sunflower that faces the sun when it sets
Time can’t replace my look of love for my island rose



Star Of A Starry Sky (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2004) (song#3016)

To me, you’re the star of a starry sky
The moon of a moonlit night
The song of a bird of paradise

To me, you’re the tide of a tidal flow
The rose where tuberoses grow
I see them all in your eyes

To you, I’m just the lone in an all alone
The words of a wordy song
Just a man in this island sand
Who doesn’t seem to belong

But, to me you’re still
The star of a starry sky
The moon of a moonlit night
The song of a bird of paradise

To me, you’re the tide of a tidal flow
The rose where tuberoses grow
I see them all in your eyes

The star of a starry sky
The moon of a moonlit night
The song of a bird of paradise

To me, you’re the tide of a tidal flow
The rose where tuberoses grow
I see them all in your eyes

You know that you’ll always be
To me, paradise



Closer On The Isle (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2004) (song#3017)


Island love is happenstance and a chance
That two people take
Here is how it reads and how it leads
To a wedding date

A kane and wahini meet each other
Then they stroll through the sand for awhile
In your heart you know there is no other
While each step brings you closer on the isle

You start to talk about Manoa rainbows
Or maybe what’s the latest island style
Then you say Aloha au ia ‘oe, I love you so
While each step brings you closer on the isle

You pose the question of if she loves you
And she says ‘O ku’u Aloha no ‘oe, I do
On your face and in your heart you smile
And then you know where tradewinds blow
Each step brings you closer on the isle

Then a golden ring is placed around her finger
And the song the tradewind sings is to beguile
You know true love through years will linger
While each step brings you closer on the isle

Then a golden ring is placed around her finger
And the song the tradewind sings is to beguile
You know true love through years will linger
While each step brings you closer on the isle



Girl I’m Gonna Marry (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2004) (song#3018)

Down by the bay I met the island girl I’m gonna marry
She’s all I ever wanted and much more
When she smiled at me I heard the music tradewinds carried
Here comes my future bride strolling down the shore

Down by the bay I met the island girl I’m gonna marry
The girl whose every dream I’m gonna share
The one who on her hand a band of gold will carry
And whose dreams I’ll treat with tender loving care

When we kissed I heard a sweet refrain
And it tasted sweet as sugar cane
Down by the bay I met the island girl I’m gonna marry
Her voice reminds me of a beautiful canary
What I feel inside my heart I can’t explain
Down by the bay I met the island girl I’m gonna marry

When we kissed I heard a sweet refrain
And it tasted sweet as sugar cane
Down by the bay I met the island girl I’m gonna marry
Her voice reminds me of a beautiful canary
What I feel inside my heart I can’t explain
Down by the bay I met the island girl I’m gonna marry



Keia La ‘Apopo Mau Loa (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2004) (song#3019)

My heart, my heart I give to you
Keia la, ‘apopo and mau loa
Ka`u ia e lei a`e nei la mau loa

My vow, my vow is to never part
Keia la, ‘apopo and mau loa
Long as mahinalani shines above

Who cares if life may fade away
Our island love will last forever
My arms, in my arms is where you’ll stay
Keia la, ‘apopo and mau loa
Long as na hoku hanohano shines above

My heart, my heart I give to you
Keia la, ‘apopo and mau loa
Ka`u ia e lei a`e nei la mau loa

Keia la, ‘apopo and mau loa
A O ko Aloha ka`u e hi`ipoi mau loa
My heart, my heart I give to you



Aloha Oe Together (Larry W. Jones 05/29/2004) (song#3020)

We strolled the island sand together
Smiled at the rainbow through the rain together
Sang island songs we thought would last forever
And pretended island love would never end

One day we bid Aloha ‘oe together
Let island love slip away together
But you’ll always be in my memory forever
For I can’t pretend my love for you will ever end

We strolled the island sand together
Smiled at the rainbow through the rain together
Sang island songs we thought would last forever
And pretended island love would never end

Through storm and island sunny weather
Our hearts beat as one together
We strolled hand in hand in soft tradewinds
And pretended island love would never end

One day we bid Aloha ‘oe together
Let island love slip away together
But you’ll always be in my memory forever
For I can’t pretend my love for you will ever end



A Free Keiki (Larry W. Jones 05/29/2004) (song#3021)

Oh, tradewinds are gonna blow
Cross the sand, cross the sand
Oh, tradewinds are gonna blow out to sea
And an island boy is gonna grow
Into an island man, island man
But only once in his life, you see
Will he be a keiki
Only once on golden sand
Will he be a free keiki

Wailua river runs warm in the island sun
Wailua river runs warm when day is done
And an island boy is a dreamer
By the oceanside
Cause the ocean’s wide and vast
Yeah, the ocean’s vast and wide
Then when the seasons roll around
And the island boy grows tall
He hears the siren song of the oceans call
The ocean sings its siren song
Come along, island boy come along
And then the island boy is gone

Oh, tradewinds are gonna blow
Cross the sand, cross the sand
Oh, tradewinds are gonna blow out to sea
And an island boy is gonna grow
Into an island man, island man
But only once in his life, you see
Will he be a keiki
Only once on golden sand
Will he be a free keiki



Tomorrow Never Comes Around (Larry W. Jones 05/29/2004) (song#3022)

I hear your words that say you love me
Ku’u ipo says your love I’ll share
That tomorrow you’ll be mine, but oh
I never see tomorrow anywhere

Oh, tomorrow never comes around
Not here in old Lahaina town
Ku’u ipo says your love I’ll share
But tomorrow never comes around
In old Lahaina town

Many yesterdays you know I waited
Many yesterdays you know I cried
Hoping to see that sweet Manoa morning
When you’d stroll down the aisle by my side

Oh, tomorrow never comes around
Not here in old Lahaina town
Ku’u ipo says your love I’ll share
But tomorrow never comes around
In old Lahaina town

So, someday I’ll be leaving
It won’t be tomorrow, but today
Cause tomorrow you’ll be grieving
If tomorrow ever comes your way

Oh, tomorrow never comes around
Not here in old Lahaina town
Ku’u ipo says your love I’ll share
But tomorrow never comes around
In old Lahaina town



Sailin’ Home (Larry W. Jones 05/29/2004) (song#3023)

I wrote a letter home from Glagow
Sealed with a drop of hot tabasco
I said honey I’ve been alone too long
I got to make a port of call in Frisco
Then steer to where tradewinds blow
Cause I’m headin’ this tramp steamer home

Black coal from the stack is blowin’
Fog horn through the fog is lowin’
Me and this tramp steamer’s been away too long
Hope no gales come up to stop my speedin’
Cause she’s got every thing I’m needin’
Waitin’ by the shore when I get home

I’ve got that old oil burner singin’
Singin’ out my favorite island song
Headin’ across the western ocean
Rollin’ down to Maui’s local motion
My island baby knows I’m sailin’ home

For ten thousand leagues I’ve missed her
Too long a sail since I last kissed her
And fourteen ports of call since I held her tight
A thousand leagues to go and countin’
Can’t wait to see west Maui mountains
Cause she’s the only thing I need tonight

I’ve got that old oil burner singin’
Singin’ out my favorite island song
Headin’ across the western ocean
Rollin’ down to Maui’s local motion
My island baby knows I’m sailin’ home



Too Plump For Me (Larry W. Jones 05/29/2004) (song#3024)

Over a canoe can she jump, oh no, no, no
In a muumuu is she a lump, oh yeh, yeh, yeh
She’s a kumu hula with a bump, a big rump
Can she hula with the motion of the sea, oh yeh, yeh, yeh
But she’s too plump for me

I don’t want her, you can have her
She’s too plump for me
She’s too plump for me, she’s too plump for me
Oh, I don’t want her
Don’t be a chump, you can have her for free
She’s too plump, she’s too plump for me

She puts me in a tizzy, gets me dizzy
When she eats that poi and spam
She likes the jum, jum, jumbo
At the luau when they serve the combo
Of the kalua ham and mahi mahi gumbo
If she would lose some weight, I wouldn’t hesitate
To jump into her lap with glee

But I don’t want her, you can have her
She’s too plump for me
She’s too plump for me, she’s too plump for me
Oh, I don’t want her
Don’t be a chump, you can have her for free
She’s too plump, she’s too plump for me



Not Too Young (Larry W. Jones 05/29/2004) (song#3025)

You’re too young, the old folks said
You ought to wait awhile instead
It takes time to grow a bed of roses

They say Aloha is more than just a word
And all the meanings we’ve not heard
That only time itself discloses

But we’re not too young to know
That here tradewinds will blow
True love when islands call

And you and I have found that love
Of which old folks are speaking of
Our island love is not too young at all

But we’re not too young to know
That here tradewinds will blow
True love when islands call

And you and I have found that love
Of which old folks are speaking of
Our island love is not too young at all



Hula-oola-ule-oo (Larry W. Jones 05/29/2004) (song#3026)

When a kane meets a wahini in Hawaii
There’s one sure thing he’s gotta do
He can’t stroll hand in hand in the sand
Until he learns to hula-oola-ule-oo

When a local boy goes a-calling
On a sweet wahini miss in June
Hula-oola-ule-oo
He dances to a romantic tune

And his charms work like magic
When he dances to that romantic tune
Hula-oola-ule-oo
Underneath a tropic moon

The tiki light burns higher and higher
And soon their hearts are on fire

So, if you go to blue Hawaii
You’ll know just what to do
Hula-oola-ule-oo
And you’ll make your dreams come true

The tiki light burns higher and higher
And soon their hearts are on fire

So, if you go to blue Hawaii
You’ll know just what to do
Hula-oola-ule-oo
And you’ll make your dreams come true

Hula-oola-ule-oo
And you’ll make your dreams come true



Brink Of Island Love (Larry W. Jones 05/29/2004) (song#3027)

Tradewinds are blowin’ from the sea
A feeling wonderful is flowin’ over me
Oh, so blue are the skies
Feels like I’m in paradise
And I don’t want to wake if it’s a dream

Every day I’m happy as can be
Dreams have finally come true for me
Springtime has come with island cheer
Ever since I’ve had you near
Tradewinds have brought love to this island scene

I’m on the, brink of love and fallin’
Fast as I can in this island sand with
You in mind
This new love that I’ve found in old Lahaina town
Has got me on the brink of island love

Tradewinds came and whispered your name
And somehow now the island’s not the same
Even the fronds of palm trees
Wave to me in the breeze
With the smile of a burning tiki flame

I never thought that I would find
Heart strings like yours to be entwined
With mine here by the sea
And I know one thing is clear
The islands sing of love when you are near

I’m on the, brink of love and fallin’
Fast as I can in this island sand with
You in mind
This new love that I’ve found in old Lahaina town
Has got me on the brink of island love



Mid Pacific Lullaby (Larry W. Jones 05/29/2004) (song#3028)

Hawaii’s tall palm trees are sleepin’
Night time’s a-creepin’ on
Harbor lights are safely keepin’
Watch on ships until they’re gone
Island papa and mama are yawnin’
Goodnights to the kids are bein’ said
Soon the moon will see the mornin’
Must be time to be in bed

Soft Hawaiian night time’s fallin’
A velvet twilight envelops all
Honolulu harbor tugboats plyin’
From ship to ship where shorebirds fly
Tradewinds upon the water’s playin’
A Hawaiian mid pacific lullaby

The sky is lit with diamonds
It’s cool in Ala Moana park
Honolulu traffic jams are past
And Waikiki is busy after dark
Mornin’ will come in a foggy dream
When the tropic sun is nigh
And the golden sand will begin to gleam
After a Hawaiian mid pacific lullaby

Soft Hawaiian night time’s fallin’
A velvet twilight envelops all
Honolulu harbor tugboats plyin’
From ship to ship where shorebirds fly
Tradewinds upon the water’s playin’
A Hawaiian mid pacific lullaby



Lonesome Ocean Road (Larry W. Jones 05/30/2004) (song#3029)

The tropic sun brings another day
To old Lahaina’s whaling town
Lines are hung to dry in the wind
Sails are all battened down
Birds of paradise above my head
Sing gaily beside the sea
They fly so free, and just like me
They’re trav’lin with the wind

I’m a sailin’ man
Don’t carry no heavy load
I’m a sailin’ man
Come join me on the lonesome ocean road

Lonely lighthouse on the point ahead
Moonlight doused on the triple masts
In the rollin’ sea will be my bed
When the last shadows of life are cast
Lonely footprints along the bay
Washed away by the tide at night
Tradewinds are blowin’ my dreams away
Can’t hide the lonely in a sailor’s life

I’m a sailin’ man
Don’t carry no heavy load
I’m a sailin’ man
Come join me on the lonesome ocean road

I’m a sailin’ man
Don’t carry no heavy load
I’m a sailin’ man
Come join me on the lonesome ocean road



Runnin’ Shoes (Larry W. Jones 05/30/2004) (song#3030)

Runnin’ shoes, I’ve got a message for you
We’re stridin’ out the door at four
I got a letter an’ my gal said we better
Hurry back to that island shore

Runnin’ shoes, you’ve stepped on out
Over many old lonesome miles
Now, without a doubt you know the route
Back to her tropic isle

Once we’re on that shore, we’ll run no more
My island honey will see to that
And what is more, there by her door
I’m gonna nail you to an old door mat

Runnin’ shoes, I’ll be done with the blues
My island gal says settle down
I won’t need no more runnin’ shoes
When I’m back in old Lahaina town

Runnin’ shoes, I’ll be done with the blues
My island gal says settle down
I won’t need no more runnin’ shoes
When I’m back in old Lahaina town



Sunset Painted Gold (Larry W. Jones 05/30/2004) (song#3031)

If I could own a sunset painted gold
And diamonds like the stars and moon above
I would just as soon have more to hold
And that would be your everlasting love

If I could own the treasures in the sea
And a ship big enough to carry them
I would gladly toss them all away from me
If I could have your love that’s like a precious gem

The only thing I need that money cannot buy
Is to have you strolling here by my side

I’ll never own a sunset that’s painted gold
Or diamonds like the stars and moon above
But I would have riches and more to hold
If I had the treasure of your everlasting love

The only thing I need that money cannot buy
Is to have you strolling here by my side

I’ll never own a sunset painted gold
Or diamonds like the stars and moon above
But I would have riches and more to hold
If I had the treasure of your everlasting love



Aloha Aloha (Larry W. Jones 05/30/2004) (song#3032)

I smile at you and you say at me
Aloha, Aloha
Here on the isle it will always be
Aloha, Aloha

For you and I have a golden dream
One that will come true
When we wed all will know it too
Here in Hawaii blue

Aloha, Aloha
Aloha, Aloha

I smile at you and you say at me
Aloha, Aloha
Here on the isle it will always be
Aloha, Aloha

For you and I have a golden dream
One that will come true
When we wed all will know it too
Here in Hawaii blue



Maui Mammy (Larry W. Jones 05/30/2004) (song#3033)

Old Maui swaddled me when I was born
Old Maui coddled me from night til morn
Now night time is only weary to my head
Send me back to Maui and tuck me back in bed

Old Maui smiled upon that little old grass shack
Dear old Maui, keep on smilin’ til I get myself back
That tropic sun will chase these shadows all away
When I see my Maui mammy old and gray
She’ll wipe away her tears when she hears me say

Rock me mammy, in that old Maui rockin’ chair
Cover me with deep blue skies and leave me there
Let that tropic sun beam its lovin’ light every morn
Her sweet ohana love I ain’t had now for so long
I can tell I need a lot of rest, mammy’s nest is best
I can almost feel it in my Maui mammy’s lovin’ arms

When I see my Maui mammy old and gray
She’ll wipe away her tears when she hears me say

Rock me mammy, in that old Maui rockin’ chair
Cover me with deep blue skies and leave me there
Her sweet ohana love I ain’t had now for so long
Dear old Maui mammy, never more I’m gonna roam



Orchids From Maui Isle (Larry W. Jones 05/30/2004) (song#3034)

When the island calls again, I’ll fill the halls again
With orchids from Maui isle
When my dream comes true, I’ll give to you
Orchids from Maui isle

By that old sugar mill, I’ll let you fill
These empty arms of mine
Your lips on mine will tast like wine
We’ll take our own sweet time

I know you’ll smile in a new hair style
With orchids from Maui isle

When the island calls again, I’ll fill the halls again
With orchids from Maui isle
When my dream comes true, I’ll give to you
Orchids from Maui isle

By that old sugar mill, I’ll let you fill
These empty arms of mine
Your lips on mine will tast like wine
We’ll take our own sweet time

I know you’ll smile in a new hair style
With orchids from Maui isle

Sweet orchids from Maui isle



Serenading Tradewind (Larry W. Jones 05/30/2004) (song#3035)

Feel the breeze coming down
Whispering love all around
Here on the isle I’ll be found
Strolling along with the serenading tradewind

Tears of the past aren’t around
Here on the isle I have found
Love in the wind is the sound
Strolling along with the serenading tradewind

The wind blows from night until dawn
I know true love has been born

Here on the isle is a song
Here on the isle I belong
Here we’ll be strolling along
Strolling along with the serenading tradewind

Tears of the past aren’t around
Here on the isle I have found
Love in the wind is the sound
Strolling along with the serenading tradewind

The wind blows from night until dawn
I know true love has been born

Here on the isle is a song
Here on the isle I belong
Here we’ll be strolling along
Strolling along with the serenading tradewind



Someone (Larry W. Jones 05/30/2004) (song#3036)


Someone is strolling behind you
Look around and you’ll see
A love song is tolling behind you
Open your heart here to me

Someone needs love and it’s me
My heart you can hold in your hand
Look around, (look around)
And you’ll see, (and you’ll see)
Open your heart to this island man

I have waited for what seems forever
For you to look around at me
Will this dream end, no never
Until you look around and see

Someone is strolling behind you
Look around and you’ll see
A love song is tolling behind you
Open your heart here to me

Someone can make dreams come to be
Look around and you’ll see
Someone can love you til eternity
Open your heart here to me



Recall The Long Ago (Larry W. Jones 05/30/2004) (song#3037)

Recall the long ago, though as if yesterday
Aloha ‘oe was the word that we both heard
As I on the ship then sailed away

Oh, my mem’ry’s strong as I hear the song
That once played upon our heart strings then
All I would give if again our love could live
As I recall the long ago where love had been

Recall those happy days when islands called
When love was dear as I held you near
And I gave to you my hand, my heart, my all

It was a perfect dream, an island scheme
That couldn’t last, but I dream of the past even now
I’ll hope and wait, though time is late
To return back to your isle somehow

Turn back the long ago, let me return to yesterday
Unlock the hands of time that hold the golden days
Turn back that fateful day when I sailed away
Recall the long ago, though as if yesterday



Quinn’s (Larry W. Jones 05/30/2004) (song#3038)

Steel guitars playin’ slow
Tradewinds layin’ low
That’s why I wanna go
Back where they play those island songs

Way down south in Tahitian waters
I mean south down Polynesia way
Those island folks are there to stroll
And dance the night away

They take le truck or stroll for miles
To get to Quinn’s in island style
It’s an old island dive that brings on smiles
Where they dance the night away

Papeete folks all meet at that junction
With leis they greet you at that island function

Stroll on down, forget your cares
Stroll on down and you’ll find me there
To old Papeete town I’m headin’ for
Quinn’s is a part of Polynesian lore

Steel guitars playin’ slow
Tradewinds layin’ low
That’s why I wanna go
Back where they play those island songs

Stroll on down, forget your cares
Stroll on down and you’ll find me there
To old Papeete town I’m headin’ for
Quinn’s is a part of Polynesian lore



At Evening Tide (Larry W. Jones 05/30/2004) (song#3039)

On the island the sun is falling
It’s evening tide
The tropic moon’s already calling
The evening tide
When the rays of day have finally died
I stroll down by the bay
Just to hear you say Aloha at evening tide

The moon is full and in it’s splendor
When day is done
Soon the magic of night will render
The love I’ve won
To call you ku’u ipo I cannot hide
When we stroll together
Hand in hand at evening tide

Tradewinds are blowing across the bay
Our rendezvous is flowing with dreams come true
It’s always been the island way
To fall in love in Hawaii blue

In the evening you’ll be beside me
My arms to enfold
Lighting the tiki flame inside me
Sweet dreams to unfold
Every day I say Mahalo
For love you provide
And dreams that will last forever
At evening tide

And dreams that will last forever
At evening tide



Twinkle Twinkle Tropic Star (Larry W. Jones 05/30/2004) (song#3040)

Twinkle, twinkle, tropic star
I wonder just how far you are
Way up high in velvet skies
A diamond shines in paradise
Twinkle, twinkle, tropic star
I wonder just how far you are

When the tropic sun goes down
And no sunlight is spread around
Then you sparkle with your light
Twinkle, twinkle in your flight
Twinkle, twinkle, tropic star
I wonder just how far you are

All the sailors in the seas
Say Mahalo guide me please
So they will know which way to go
To islands where soft tradewinds blow
Twinkle, twinkle, tropic star
I wonder just how far you are

From the dark and velvet sky you keep
In my cottage window I see you peep
And even though I close my eyes
I know you’re up there in paradise
Twinkle, twinkle, tropic star
The islands are happy that you are



Added By Love (Larry W. Jones 05/31/2004) (song#3041)

One and one added by love
Can only add up to two
And two is a lovely number
When I’m with you
One and one added by love
I’m so glad it’s you

I used to see your tears falling down
As you strolled around old Lahaina town
Believe me, I had that same feelin’ inside
Before I had you here by my side

And now there will never be
Only one here by the sea
Cause one and one added by love
Is the only dream I’m dreamin’ of

You took away the rain and brought the flowers
And a rainbow came to replace lonely hours

And now there will never be
Only one here by the sea
Cause one and one added by love
Is the only dream I’m dreamin’ of

One and one added by love
Can only add up to two
And two is a lovely number
When I’m with you
One and one added by love
I’m so glad it’s you



Strolling The Island Road (Larry W. Jones 05/31/2004) (song#3042)

If you need to feel a tropic breeze
Come go strolling through the sand with me
Any place is fine, you see
As long as it’s Hawaii blue

Strolling down the sandy beach
We’ll each be counting up the years
Adding up the memories
Photographs and souvenirs
And living island life with ease

The tropic summer sun will always shine
The topic we’ll talk about is summer wine
And every day you’ll hear me say
Mahalo nui loa E ke Aloha ku’u ipo mine

On this isle of love we’ll wear a smile
We’ll work on being happy all the while
We’ll be two strolling the island road
Where Aloha is love’s unwritten code

On this isle of love we’ll wear a smile
We’ll work on being happy all the while
We’ll be two strolling the island road
Where Aloha is love’s unwritten code



Texas Two Step Blues (Larry W. Jones 05/31/2004) (song#3043)

I took a plane from Houston to Honolulu town
I figured a Texas cowboy looked good in island sand
But wearin’ my boots I guess I looked the clown
It only took two steps to make me change my plan

Step number one was when I stepped off that plane
In Honolulu with my cowboy boots
You stepped up and gave me a lei and it was plain
This cowboy had never seen someone as cute

Step number two was when you strolled away
And gave me the boot
As you walked away I watched your sway
But I said I don’t give a hoot

Now I’m back in Texas, back to my roots
My souvenir is a Texas ego sorely bruised
Two steps and my poor heart lost all its loot
And I can’t boot these Texas two step blues

Step number one was when I stepped off that plane
In Honolulu with my cowboy boots
You stepped up and gave me a lei and it was plain
This cowboy had never seen someone as cute

Step number two was when you strolled away
And gave me the boot
As you walked away I watched your sway
But I said I don’t give a hoot

Now I’m back in Texas, back to my roots
My souvenir is a Texas ego sorely bruised
Two steps and my poor heart lost all its loot
And I can’t boot these Texas two step blues



Sands Of Time (Larry W. Jones 05/31/2004) (song#3044)

Sands of time tell a story
Sands of time tell of the glory
Of an island boy and girl
Who lived and loved where breakers curl

They left footprints in the sand
Island woman and island man
The sun and moon both spread the lore
Of how the tide would come and kiss the shore
But as the tide ebbed and flowed
It showed their footprints in the sand forevermore

Now you and I stand on these sands
Joined hand in hand and wedding bands
Our footprints will stay on this sandy shore
Forever and a day and then some more
For you are the only one I’ll ever love
Forevermore

Like that island girl and island boy
In the sands of time of island lore
Our life will be of love and joy
In the sands of time
On this golden island shore



Po’o Wai U Rodeo (Larry W. Jones 06/02/2004) (song#3045)

Maui isle is the place to go
If you wanna rodeo, Hawaiian style
You can Maui wowee at Makawao
Big Sam Vavarus will announce just how
At the Po’o Wai U rodeo

Hele koke mai makemake au e hele
a ka Makawao Po’o wai U Ho’okuku hana paniolo
Makawao Maui no ka ‘oi

Rodeo in Hawaii has heros to exploit
Legendary paniolos Chucky and Herman Decoit
And cowboy Joey Cairus is there to impress
All the judges and wahinis, don’t you know
At the Po’o Wai U rodeo

At the rodeo it won’t take long
To hear the cheers from the Maui cowboy throng
For famous brothers Henry and Wendell Wong
Another reason why is paniolo Uncle Henry Kawai
At the Po’o Wai U rodeo

Well, I could be wordy ’bout Ikua Purdy
But all you have to do is know his name
That Hawaiian paniolo got down and dirty
And he returned with a celebrated name
He took a kaula ili that the cowboys make
To Waiomina in the western United States
Ikua Purdy set those mainland cowboys straight
When he won the steer roping in 1908

Hele koke mai makemake au e hele
a ka Makawao Po’o wai U Ho’okuku hana paniolo
Makawao Maui no ka ‘oi

And you get anything you want
At the Makawao Casanova’s restaurant
If you can dance you can really flaunt
Your line dance, swing dance, take a chance
With Danny and his band for a little romance
At the Po’o Wai U rodeo

Ha`ina mai ka puana lâ
ko Po’o Wai U rodeo
ia Makawao
Makawao Maui no ka ‘oi



Gabby Pahinui (Larry W. Jones 06/04/2004) (song#3046)

Oh, island folks would come from far away
They’d dance at the luau til the break of day
When the kumu hula called out Kiho’alu
He knew Gabby Pahinui was ready to go

Late in the evenin’ when the twilight came
Down by the bay there came a man of fame
Gabby Pahinui played slack key guitar
Even now they talk about him on islands afar

Gabby played a song called Aloha Ka Manini
And he was known for Ipo Lei Manu too
One of his best was Pua Tuberose
Everybody knows Gabby in Hawaii blue

Late in the evenin’ when the twilight came
Down by the bay there came a man of fame
Gabby Pahinui played slack key guitar
Even now they talk about him on islands afar

In nineteen eighty on October thirteen
Gabby Pahinui put his koa guitar away
And the likes of Gabby has never been seen
Since that mournful day where tradewinds play

Late in the evenin’ when the twilight came
Down by the bay there came a man of fame
Gabby Pahinui played slack key guitar
Even now they talk about him on islands afar



Sky Of Velvet Blue (Larry W. Jones 06/04/2004) (song#3047)

Under a sky of velvet blue
It’s paradise when I’m with you
Wrapped in romance the way we are
The velvet blue night is ours

Under a sky of velvet blue
I’m thrilled whenever you’re in my arms
My heart dances just for you
In this night of lovely charms

An island night’s magic is enthralling
It would be tragic if you weren’t here
But when two can hear islands calling
Dreams that come true will appear

Under the velvet sky above
You and I can make this dream come true
Tradewinds have whispered of love
Under a sky of velvet blue

An island night’s magic is enthralling
It would be tragic if you weren’t here
But when two can hear islands calling
Dreams that come true will appear

Under the velvet sky above
You and I can make this dream come true
Tradewinds have whispered of love
Under a sky of velvet blue



Ulupalakua Palm Tree (Larry W. Jones 06/04/2004) (song#3048)

Over on an island lived an island maid
She was an ali’i with a nice brown shade
And you can say an impression is what she made
On a kumu hula in Ulupalakua

And every morning down by the sea
He was underneath a tall palm tree
Just a-waiting there for this ali’i
The island maid from Ulupalakua

When he saw her he would sing
A song that made the tradewinds ring

If you love-a me like I love-a you
Then it’s plain we both the same
And I like-a say I like-a your sway
So, I like-a to change your name

Cause I love-a you in Hawaii blue
And if you love-a me like I love-a you
Then be my ali’i queen by the sea
And we live-a as one, not two
Under the Ulupalakua palm tree

And if you love-a me like I love-a you
Then be my ali’i queen by the sea
And we live-a as one, not two
Under the Ulupalakua palm tree



Under A Hawaiian Moon (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2004) (song#3049)

Where the tradewinds softly play
On a shore where palm trees sway
A lonely wahini sighs in June
Under a Hawaiian moon
Every night she hears the tune
As the lonesome tradewinds croon
Calling out as if to say
Return to me from far away

Gentle waves kiss the golden sand
Where they strolled hand in hand
And tears will fall there soon
Under a Hawaiian moon
Those sweet Aloha melodies
Always bring back memories
Of a love she used to know
Where he’s gone she doesn’t know

Return to me here by the sea
I’m as lonely as I can be
Under a Hawaiian moon
Is my waiting all in vain
How long will my heart be in pain
Oh my love, return here soon

Return to where tropic stars
Are serenaded by steel guitars
And where my love that will never die
Will welcome you back to paradise
Return to me here by the sea
I’m as lonely as I can be
Oh my love, return here soon
Under a Hawaiian moon



If You Don’t (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2004) (song#3050)

If you don’t show me your sunny smile
If you don’t stroll with me on the isle
Then I’ll know life ain’t worthwhile
If you don’t give me love divine

If you don’t miss me when I’m gone
If you don’t sing a lonesome song
Then I’ll know I don’t belong
In your dreams or you in mine

Oh, please show me your sunny smile
Come and stroll with me on the isle
Sing me songs with lots of rhymes
So we can hear sweet Maui chimes

If you don’t miss me when I’m gone
If you don’t sing a lonesome song
Then I’ll know I don’t belong
In your dreams or you in mine

Oh, please show me your sunny smile
Come and stroll with me on the isle
Sing me songs with lots of rhymes
So we can hear sweet Maui chimes



Home Sweet Island Home (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2004) (song#3051)

Well, it’s not essential
Just a little island in the stream
But it has potential
For making lots of dreams

With tradewinds softly blowin’
Across that tropic zone
Well, it’s not essential
But it’s home sweet island home

Well, it’s not essential
Just a little bitty island town
But it’s the quintissential
Paradise that can be found

A postcard is its credential
And rainbows where dreamers roam
Well, it’s not essential
But it’s home sweet island home

Well, it’s not essential
But it has potential
It’s the quintissential
Home sweet island home



Golden Island Sand (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2004) (song#3052)

You were just a dream
Now you’ve become my everything
You’re an island woman
Who made me feel like a king
I’m a simple island man
But you came and took my hand
My heart will never stray
For loving you I’ve planned
By your side I’ll always stay
Here in this golden island sand

You and I were worlds apart
Love seemed like a useless game
But we found each other’s heart
And now they’re beating both the same
Once I thought that love would stay
Somewhere outside my heart
But when you smiled at me that day
I knew something had to start

I’m not asking why
I’m not asking how
I only ask that for forever
Let me love you
Let me love you as I love you now

I’m a simple island man
But you came and took my hand
My heart will never stray
For loving you I’ve planned
By your side I’ll always stay
Here in this golden island sand



Peaceful Isle Of Love (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2004) (song#3053)

Would you like to stroll on my isle of love
Would you like to stroll on my isle of love
We could count all of the stars together, as they say
And we can fall in love
Down by the bay
My peaceful, peaceful isle of love
There’s no nicer place than my peaceful isle of love
It will suffice to say that we can fall in love
We can stroll along, sing a song each new day
And we can fall in love
Down by the bay
My peaceful, peaceful isle of love
Encircled by a rainbow lei
We’ll search for some new dreams to find
And if it seems like love is here to stay
We’ll find a palm tree to hide behind
And I’m sure that you won’t mind
Love is waiting there on my peaceful isle of love
Tradewinds are blowing there on my peaceful isle of love
If you’ll stroll hand in hand
We’ll make dreams come true today
And we can fall in love
Down by the bay
My peaceful, peaceful isle of love
Isle of love
And we can fall in love



South Seas Island Moon (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2004) (song#3054)

The first time we kissed on our island shore
Tiki lights shone above us, the night to adore
But the old island ways have gone all too soon
Shall we waltz beneath our south seas island moon

The beach and le market and our honeymoon hotel
We’ve seen all the changes where our memories dwell
But the old island ways have gone all too soon
Shall we waltz beneath our south seas island moon

South seas island moon, south seas island moon
We strolled and danced as new lovers do
South seas island moon, south seas island moon
We’ll never forget our south seas island moon

Ke maka mua kaua honihoni ma ko kaua moku kapa kai
Tiki aulama konane maluna ia makou, ke po me ke aloha
But the old island ways have gone all too soon
Shall we waltz beneath our south seas island moon



Matson Line (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2004) (song#3055)

Sail along Matson Line

Sailin’ over oceans where there’s only salty brine
Sailin’ over seas at night, ain’t no horizon line
Standin’ behind the wheel, keepin’ eye on the weather
Hopin’ this old ship will hold together
Runnin’ with the wind on the Matson Line

Matson Line, sail along

Pickin’ up more freight in every port of call
Too long since I ate since fightin’ that last squall
This sea ain’t no pal of mine, it has no pity
Lookin’ for that gal of mine, islands sure are pretty
She’ll see me comin’ with the tide on the Matson Line

Islands ho!

Gotta keep this old ship on time
Waves against the bow
Through the pass we plow
Sail along Matson Line

Never had a cottage on a peaceful island shore
Only had a cabin on a ship and nothin’ more
Standin’ behind the wheel, keepin’ eye on the weather
Hopin’ this old ship will hold together
Runnin’ with the wind on the Matson Line



Come Stroll (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2004) (song#3056)

Stroll through this island sand with me
Come stroll where breezes blow
Share all my dreams here by the sea
My goal is to love you so

We search through space and time
And in life some of us find
I’ve searched through time and sand for you
Seems like such a long, long time

And now that I have found you
A new island on horizons I see
Here, I give my hand to you
Stroll through this island sand with me

Stroll through this island sand with me
Come stroll where breezes blow
Share all my dreams here by the sea
My goal is to love you so

And now that I have found you
A new island on horizons I see
Here, I give my hand to you
Stroll through this island sand with me

Here, I give my hand to you
Stroll through this island sand with me



Returnin’ Back To Maui (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2004) (song#3057)

I’m returnin’ back to Maui
And I hope she’s there to take me back
Ain’t got nothin’ in my blue jean pockets
Ain’t got no bank account

But she’s that island girl who said she loved me
On that warm and sandy island shore
And if she’s still around in old Lahaina town
I’m gonna settle right on down
And marry that sweet lovin’ island girl

Maui can you hear me callin’
I’ve been sailin’ for awhile
I’ll find her even if I’m crawlin’
I’ve gotta find her on that isle

But she’s that island girl who said she loved me
On that warm and sandy island shore
And if she’s still around in old Lahaina town
I’m gonna settle right on down
And marry that sweet lovin’ island girl

I’m returnin’ back to Maui
And I hope she’s there to take me back
Ain’t got nothin’ in my blue jean pockets
Ain’t got no bank account

But she’s that island girl who said she loved me
On that warm and sandy island shore
And if she’s still around in old Lahaina town
I’m gonna settle right on down
And marry that sweet lovin’ island girl



Strollin’ The Shore (Larry W. Jones 06/06/2004) (song#3058)

Well, I met you when you strolled by that day
And you said you’d meet me down by the bay
I hope you’ll keep your promise
Please don’t leave me all alone
I just need a little kiss and a love to call my own

I’m strollin’ the shore over to you
I couldn’t sleep a wink thinkin’ of you
I’m hopin’ you’ll be sayin’ that you love me too
I’m strollin’ the shore over to you

Ku’u ipo, E ke Aloha No Au Ia ‘Oe
E ke Aloha more than you’ll ever know
If you’d just say that you wanted me
Then I’d be glad to call you mine
That’s why I’ll meet you down by the sea
Just to ease my troubled mind

I’m strollin’ the shore over to you
I couldn’t sleep a wink thinkin’ of you
I’m hopin’ you’ll be sayin’ that you love me too
I’m strollin’ the shore over to you

There were days when I was lonesome and blue
Searching for a dream that would come true
I kept on looking til I found my paradise
I’m gonna tell you that I love you
And that I will until the day I die

I’m strollin’ the shore over to you
I couldn’t sleep a wink thinkin’ of you
I’m hopin’ you’ll be sayin’ that you love me too
I’m strollin’ the shore over to you



Waltz In Paradise (Larry W. Jones 06/06/2004) (song#3059)

Tradewinds can blow cold, cold, moan and cry
When it carries the sound of Aloha ‘oe goodbye
And if you listen tonight you’ll hear it proclaim
You might hear my voice as it whispers your name

I’ve been on a road that seems has no end
Where this old broken heart never will mend
I’ve crossed many bridges but yours I won’t burn
Crossed too many rivers with lessons to learn

But the tropic moon is full, the stars shining bright
And my heart is beating steady for you tonight
When I look in your eyes, I see paradise
I’ll waltz you, sweetheart, in paradise tonight

We’ve both had our share of hard times
And dreams that seemed to go wrong
When the clouds make dark shadows
And time makes the night much too long

But the tropic moon is full, the stars shining bright
And my heart is beating steady for you tonight
When I look in your eyes, I see paradise
I’ll waltz you, sweetheart, in paradise tonight

I’ll waltz you, sweetheart, in paradise tonight
Old flames never die, so hold on real tight
And I’ll waltz you, sweetheart, in paradise tonight
I’ll waltz you, sweetheart, in paradise tonight



Posted Heart (Larry W. Jones 06/06/2004) (song#3060)

Posted, this heart is posted, no entry, you see
Someone I held closely, she stole my heart
Someone in whom I boasted
She gave me no warning that we’d ever part

She was last seen strolling, holding another’s hand
He just doesn’t know the danger in island sand

A judge would find her guilty
For setting my poor heart free
That’s why my heart’s posted, no entry, you see
Unless, of course, she repented
And strolled back to me
If someone in whom I boasted
Came strolling back to me

She was last seen strolling, holding another’s hand
He just doesn’t know the danger in island sand

A judge would find her guilty
For setting my poor heart free
That’s why my heart’s posted, no entry, you see
Unless, of course, she repented
And strolled back to me
If someone in whom I boasted
Came strolling back to me



It’s Not A Tear Drop (Larry W. Jones 06/06/2004) (song#3061)

It’s not a tear drop
Just a sincere drop
And dear, I can’t stop
Loving you

Once you said that you would love me true
And I dreamed our love would last eternally
But then my dreams all turned to blue
That’s when the rain began to fall endlessly

It’s not a tear drop
Just a sincere drop
Wish you were here drop
Loving me

I know you’ll find someone to make you glad
But where tradewinds blow I’ll be feeling sad
Maybe that lonesome tradewind will forget to call
And someday I won’t see rain fall from the blue

It’s not a tear drop
Just a sincere drop
And dear, I can’t stop
Loving you

It’s not a tear drop
Just a sincere drop
And dear, I can’t stop
Loving you



Please Be Mine (Larry W. Jones 06/06/2004) (song#3062)

Please be mine, please be mine, please be mine
When your lips are touching mine, my love
Paradise comes to this island shore, my love
Tender and warm is the song that I adore
As tradewinds breeze along once more
Each kiss that you grant me always enchants me
And lets me know that you’re really mine

When I’m lost in your caress, my love
The island is blessed by rainbows from above
Tender and warm are your charms
Tender and warm your arms of love
Each touch that I feel let’s me know love is real
Place your hand in mine, throughout the sands of time
Please be mine, please be mine, please be mine

Each minute that you’re near, my future begins
The minute you would leave, it would all come to an end
Please be mine so that your love I’ll always win
Please be mine, please be mine, please be mine

With each tiki flame that’s burning in my soul
My heart can’t be tamed of yearning for you
Please be mine and make my dreams unfold
Tender and warm here where dreams come true
I offer my arms, my heart, my all
Give me your charms and hear the islands call
Please be mine, please be mine, please be mine



Warm Hands Warm Sands (Larry W. Jones 06/06/2004) (song#3063)

Warm hands, warm sands
That’s what I feel when I’m strolling with you
And when I’m holding you
Warm lips, hula hips excited me, invited me
And in spite of me, I fell in love with you

Polynesian eyes, paradise with every sigh
What else could I do but stay

Warm hands, island sands have charms to weave
It must have been planned this way
Sometimes I wonder if it’s make believe
But warm hands, warm sands don’t deceive
Warm hands, warm sands weave a dream today

Polynesian eyes, paradise with every sigh
What else could I do but stay

Warm hands, island sands have charms to weave
It must have been planned this way
Sometimes I wonder if it’s make believe
But warm hands, warm sands don’t deceive
Warm hands, warm sands weave a dream today



Faanui Bay (Larry W. Jones 06/07/2004) (song#3064)

Twilight is falling and I’m so lonesome and blue
Twilight is now recalling sweet island memories of you
And the Bora Bora breeze sighs in tall palm trees
As if it knows why I say
For your returning, my heart is yearning
Way down on Faanui Bay

Beams of moonlight play upon the sea
Beams of moonlight
Just like the night you came to me
My heart was so glad, now so sad
When I heard you say
Dear, I must go from where tradewinds blow
Away from Faanui Bay

On Faanui Bay the dolphins play
Under the harbor lights now gleaming
While I am dreaming of a way
To win you back with love or scheming
So I won’t be so lonely in Bora Bora
Way down on Faanui Bay

My heart was so glad, now so sad
When I heard you say
Dear, I must go from where tradewinds blow
Away from Faanui Bay

On Faanui Bay the dolphins play
Under the harbor lights now gleaming
While I am dreaming of a way
To win you back with love or scheming
So I won’t be so lonely in Bora Bora
Way down on Faanui Bay



Never Ring For Me (Larry W. Jones 06/07/2004) (song#3065)

I got your invitation in the mail today
To the wedding luau as you change your name
Oh, I couldn’t watch as he leads you away
But I wish you happiness with your new flame

I was thinking of a cottage in Manoa valley
To go with this little band of gold for you
I dreamed of the day I’d see it on your finger
But now that golden dream has turned to blue

Maui chimes are ringing in Manoa valley
That were meant for you and me here by the sea
With another man in the sand you’ll be strolling
Those Maui chimes will never ring for me

Ku’u ipo, let’s turn back the time
To those sublime moments of yesterday
When I knew that you’d be mine
Just as you vowed forever and a day

I never dreamed that your love would die
But now I try to hold back the tears
Our love could have been from paradise
Ku’u ipo, let’s turn back the years

I still see you wearing a lei of roses
And a fragrant blossom in your hair
While those Maui chimes composes
A song that meant that I’d be there

Maui chimes are ringing in Manoa valley
That were meant for you and me here by the sea
With another man in the sand you’ll be strolling
Those Maui chimes will never ring for me



Pahu Hula (Larry W. Jones 06/07/2004) (song#3066)

Way across the ocean in the island sand
Polynesian people get married at a luau dance
The music isn’t canned, it’s a kumu hula band
Polynesian people are carried away in romance

Pai, pai, pahu hula drum
Will get a timid wahini to her feet
When they play the wedding pahu hula drum
She will say ‘Ae ‘Ae and seal it with a pahu hula beat

That’s how it goes where the tradewind blows
At paina male time the beat of pahu hula is in the air
And everybody knows it’s wedding luau time
And they all join in the hula with the newlywed pair

Pai, pai, pahu hula drum
Will get a timid wahini to her feet
When they play the wedding pahu hula drum
She will say ‘Ae ‘Ae and seal it with a pahu hula beat

That’s how it goes where the tradewind blows
At paina male time the beat of pahu hula is in the air
And everybody knows it’s wedding luau time
And they all join in the hula with the newlywed pair



Welcome To My Island (Larry W. Jones 06/07/2004) (song#3067)

Welcome to my island
Glad you came today
I’m the one who loves you
Here where breezes play
If beauty was a song to sing
I’d play it on heart strings
I would play it perfectly for you
And never change a thing

Welcome to my cheerfulness
With you here on the isle
You’re the one responsible
For my happy smile
We’ll stroll hand in hand to places
Where we’ve never been
For who can say a perfect day like this
Will ever come again

Welcome to my island
It’s been a blessed day
If I tried a thousand times
I’d find no better way to say
Than to say Aloha I love you
In every song I play
And to say Mahalo nui loa
Just for being here today

Welcome to my island
Glad you came today
I’m the one who loves you
Here where breezes play
If beauty was a song to sing
I’d play it on heart strings
I would play it perfectly for you
And never change a thing



Welcome To My Island (Larry W. Jones 06/07/2004) (song#3067)

We’ll stroll the isle again
We’ll stroll the isle again
We might not know just where
We might not know just when

But keep smiling anyway
Until there comes a sunny day
Sunshine will smile on skies of blue
When again I stroll the isle with you

Please say Aloha when you go
To all the folks that I know
Let them know it won’t be long
We’ll sing again a happy song
Here where island breezes blow

That we’ll stroll the isle again
We’ll stroll the isle again
We might not know just where
We might not know just when

But keep smiling anyway
Until there comes a sunny day
Sunshine will smile on skies of blue
When again I stroll the isle with you



A Sad Song On KPOI (Larry W. Jones 06/07/2004) (song#3069)

I heard a sad song on K-POI radio
Then I turned it way down low
That’s when the tears came to my eyes
Reflecting the glow of paradise
But I didn’t want the song to end
It almost sounded like a friend
Who understood the reasons why
Someone in paradise could cry
But when the song came to an end
The words said something about when

We won’t have to say Aloha ‘oe again
We won’t have to say Aloha ‘oe again

You said you had to leave
And I guess you will
I guess you know I’m gonna grieve
Until time itself stands still
Somewhere, sometime, I don’t know now
Maybe you’ll return somehow
I’ll be here waiting for you then
And I’ll never play that song again
That almost sounded like a friend
Who understood the reasons why
Someone in paradise could cry
But when the song came to an end
The words said something about when

We won’t have to say Aloha ‘oe again
We won’t have to say Aloha ‘oe again



Stroll In The Sunshine (Larry W. Jones 06/08/2004) (song#3070)

We’ll stroll in the sunshine
Where the tradewinds play
We’ll stroll in the sunshine
Forever and a day

I will always love you
E hoomau maua kealoha, dear
You know I’ll always love you
There will never be a tear

And we’ll stroll in the sunshine
Where the tradewinds play
We’ll stroll in the sunshine
Forever and a day

We’ll sing a song each morning
And I’ll hold you every night
And the joy that you will bring me
Will be as warm as tiki lights

And we’ll stroll in the sunshine
Where the tradewinds play
We’ll stroll in the sunshine
Forever and a day

When you’re strolling here beside me
In the warmth of island sand
Nothing else could as much please me
As to be your island man

And we’ll stroll in the sunshine
Where the tradewinds play
We’ll stroll in the sunshine
Forever and a day



E Komo Mai To My Isle (Larry W. Jones 06/07/2004) (song#3071)

E komo mai to my isle
Hele mai and stroll right in
Reasons for a smile
Comes with the soft tradewind

Let my island do its part
Leave all your worries far behind
E komo mai to my isle
You’re always on my mind

Waves upon the shore will open
New worlds for you to find
Love will always happen
When you’re in this dream of mine

My island’s waiting here
With arms opened wide
Waiting til you’re near
E komo mai to my isle

Waves upon the shore will open
New worlds for you to find
Love will always happen
When you’re in this dream of mine

My island’s waiting here
With arms opened wide
Waiting til you’re near
E komo mai to my isle



When You Return (Larry W. Jones 06/08/2004) (song#3072)

We’ll gather tuberoses in the spring again
We’ll stroll down by the bay once more
And my heart will hear the island sing again
Wnen you return to this island shore

And in the twilight by the tiki glow
I’ll hold you close and never let you go
Paradise will once again be nice, I know
When you return to where tradewinds blow

We’ll gather tuberoses in the spring again
We’ll stroll down by the bay once more
And my heart will hear the island sing again
Wnen you return to this island shore

And in the twilight by the tiki glow
I’ll hold you close and never let you go
Paradise will once again be nice, I know
When you return to where tradewinds blow

We’ll stroll down by the bay once more
Wnen you return to this island shore



Paradise Wagon (Larry W. Jones 06/08/2004) (song#3073)

Well, I’ve got an old ’89
Ford LTD station wagon
But that 289 is runnin’ fine
Though the neighbors tongues’ a-waggin’

None of the windows work
But the AC’s cold as ice
I can see them neighbors smirk
But there’s no payments to hurt
Did I say the AC’s cold as ice
And in Texas, brother, that’s paradise

Well, I’m not tryin’ to aspire
To that stuffy jet set crowd
Me an’ my ’89 Country Squire
Ain’t tryin’ to be too proud

The radio antenna’s broken
But the AC’s cold as ice
I can see them neighbors smirk
But there’s no payments to hurt
Did I say the AC’s cold as ice
And in Texas, brother, that’s paradise

Well, the odometer’s over 200 grand
And the tires are may-pop brand
But it gets me to work on time
And the payments don’t cost a dime

The woody trim is faded and worn
But the AC’s cold as ice
I can see them neighbors smirk
But there’s no payments to hurt
Did I say the AC’s cold as ice
And in Texas, brother, that’s paradise



Nobody Else But You (Larry W. Jones 06/08/2004) (song#3074)

Your love’s what I’m livin’ for
There’s only you
Your love’s what I’m livin’ for
You know it’s true
Oh, oh there’s nobody else
There’s nobody else but you

Your love is my guiding star
My heavenly light
It guides me to where you are
On the island tonight
You’ll be my island girl
In Hawaii blue
Oh, oh there’s nobody else
There’s nobody else but you

I need you close to me
Where tradewinds blow
I’ll love you for all time
For, ku’u ipo sweetheart,
I want you to know
That I’m in love with you so

Your love is my guiding star
My heavenly light
It guides me to where you are
On the island tonight
You’ll be my island girl
In Hawaii blue
Oh, oh there’s nobody else
There’s nobody else but you

Your love’s what I’m livin’ for
There’s only you
Oh, oh there’s nobody else
There’s nobody else but you



The Broken Hearted (Larry W. Jones 06/08/2004) (song#3075)

As I stroll this isle of broken dreams
Even love songs are broken, it seems
Happiness has come and gone
I don’t know if I can carry on

This is what becomes of the broken hearted
I had an island love who’s now departed
A new love maybe some day I’ll find
But old memories only come to mind

I see those new in love all around
But until I see my love in old Lahaina town
This old heart of mine might not be around
Cause heartaches and pain are growing stronger

I see shadows in the moonlight
Somehow it just don’t seem right
Tradewinds whisper your name
But I don’t see you coming into sight

I keep hoping that you’ll say you care
Groping for a reason you’re not there
Through this island sand I’m strolling
But it doesn’t get me anywhere

This is what becomes of the broken hearted
I had an island love who’s now departed
A new love maybe some day I’ll find
But old memories only come to mind

This is what becomes of the broken hearted
I had an island love who’s now departed
This is what becomes of the broken hearted



What Profit (Larry W. Jones 06/12/2004) (song#3076)

What profit do I have from the tropic moon
That we both watched together
What profit do I have from that night in June
When first we strolled among the heather
As the seasons change, what have I ganed

What profit do I have from the tuberose
That we planted by the cottage patio
It was one tuberose, but two lovers know
From one will grow a bed of roses
As the seasons change, what have I ganed

What profit do I have that is so grand
From four footprints made side by side
When first you and I strolled hand in hand
With the glint of sunset at high tide
As the seasons change, what have I ganed

Here is that same tropic moon
And a bed of tuberoses by the patio
Here is another tropic night in June
On this isle where soft breezes blow
And as the seasons change, what have I ganed
Nothing has really changed, except that I’ve arranged
To spend the rest of eternity loving you



No Regret For Love (Larry W. Jones 06/12/2004) (song#3077)


Kiss the day Aloha ‘oe goodbye
Kiss away the sorrow, not the sweet
We did the best we could in paradise
To make love true and complete
And there’s no regret, no regret for love

There are no tears in our eyes to dry
There is no sorrow
For we always knew, you and I
There would be a bright tomorrow
And there’s no regret, no regret for love

True love is always near, always here
And we will carry on tomorrow
Just as we did today, with cheer
And there’s no regret, no regret for love

Kiss the day Aloha ‘oe goodbye
Kiss away the sorrow, not the sweet
Point me toward tomorrow’s paradise
For our love today, tomorrow we’ll repeat
And there’s no regret, no regret for love

There’s no regret for love
There’s no regret for love



Dream Called Island Love (Larry W. Jones 06/12/2004) (song#3078)

I was a simple island man
In ways of love I wasn’t very smart
When love strolled in on island sand
And drummed on my simple island heart
Love strolled by my cottage window
And brought me happiness back then
Yes, love came to my isle, stayed awhile
Then love strolled away again

What is this dream called island love
This funny scheme called island love
Who locked up the mystery
And then threw away the key
Love strolled in here by the sea
And then it made a fool of me
You appeared one sunny day
I gave to you my simple heart
And then you threw it far away
What was I dreaming of
What is this dream called island love
This funny scheme called island love

Days with you were rays of sunshine
And the island songs that I still hear
Are memories of island cheer
Just memories that still are mine
Then someone else came on the scene
Someone else to share your dream
Warm tradewinds brought a funny chill
And now I wonder why this dream called island love
This scheme called island love
Can make me love you still



Samoa Dream (Larry W. Jones 06/12/2004) (song#3079)

Oh, I’m gonna dream some moa about Samoa
Where the humuhumunukunukuapua’a plays
Oh, I’m gonna dream some moa about Samoa
Where life is slower by the peaceful bays

Oh, I’m gonna go-a back to Samoa
And listen to those songs in paradise
Oh, I’m gonna go-a back to Samoa
And watch that southern ocean drifting by

I can envision myself there once more
Strolling on a moonlit tropic shore
And in my dream I reason
There’s a pretty polynesian
With long hair of coral black
That flows down to her back
That’s why I’m gonna dream some moa about Samoa
And feel those tradewinds drifting by

Oh, I’m gonna dream some moa about Samoa
Where the humuhumunukunukuapua’a plays
Oh, I’m gonna dream some moa about Samoa
Where life is slower by the peaceful bays

And in my dream I reason
There’s a pretty polynesian
With long hair of coral black
That flows down to her back
That’s why I’m gonna dream some moa about Samoa
And feel those tradewinds drifting by



What’ll I Say (Larry W. Jones 06/13/2004) (song#3080)

Gone now is the dream
That seemed to be devine
It drifted away and can’t be found

The day you strolled away
I lost and it cost me what was mine
Cause I don’t see you around

What’ll I say when you’re so far away
And skies are gray
What’ll I say

What’ll I say when I see the way
He’s kissing you today
What’ll I say

What’ll I say
To a fragrant flower lei
That fades away

When I’m lonely and in dismay
And only dreams of you come my way
What’ll I say



If I Could (Larry W. Jones 06/13/2004) (song#3081)

If I could have an island
It would be filled with tall palm trees
If I could have the wind
It would be a balmy tradewind breeze
If I could choose any sound at all
It would be the island’s siren call
So why, oh why are my arms filled
With no island love at all

When all my dreams are dreams of you
When will my dreams of you come true

If I could sing or hold a tune
I would sing a song of a tropic moon
If I could win first prize
It would be just like paradise
If I could change anything I claimed
It would have to be your name
So why, oh why is this tiki flame
Not an island love at all

When all my dreams are dreams of you
When will my dreams of you come true

When all my dreams are dreams of you
When will my dreams of you come true



A Lady’s Charms (Larry W. Jones 06/13/2004) (song#3082)

What is it in a lady’s charms
Have you ever contemplated loving arms
Or maybe setting off fire alarms
Tell me, what is the harm
In a lady’s charms

What is it that always seems
To be the subject of a young man’s dreams
When he’s lonely as an island in the stream
Tell me, what places has he seen
In an island dream

I know tradewinds blow constantly
And love is in the air
But every time I go down by the sea
I never find her charms are there

What is it that always seems
To be the subject of a young man’s dreams
When he’s lonely as an island in the stream
Tell me, what places has he seen
In an island dream

What is it in a lady’s charms
Have you ever contemplated loving arms
Or maybe setting off fire alarms
Tell me, what is the harm
In a lady’s charms



I’ll Still Be Loving You (Larry W. Jones 06/13/2004) (song#3083)

When there’s no more island songs to sing
When there’s no more Maui chimes to ring
When no more birds of paradise take wing
I’ll still be loving you

When every tradewind has blown
When every sunset has gone
When every secret is known
It’s no secret that I’ll be loving you

Yes, I’ll be loving you, as I now do
Yes, I’ll be loving you
With a love that you’ll know is true

There will always be islands in the stream
There will always be love of which to dream
And I’ll be always loving you, it seems
Yes, I’ll be loving you

When every care is set free
Love will be there for all to see
And then all people will agree
That I’ll still be loving you

When every care is set free
Love will be there for all to see
And then all people will agree
That I’ll still be loving you



Dream Of Old Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 06/13/2004) (song#3084)

When the I’iwi is singing its sweet melodies
And sweet plumeria scents the night breeze
That’s when I dream of my isle far over the sea
My isle of old Hawaii
Where my heart is longing to be

And I see you, Leilani, waiting there on the shore
Where together we strolled in those days of yore
I’m dreaming tonight of my Leilani so true
Yes, I dream of old Hawaii, and I dream of you

I can picture the little cottage still standing there
Where fond mem’ries were made on islands so fair
And the girl that I love is still just as true
Leilani is waiting for someone
And that someone is here waiting too

And my love for Leilani grows each day stronger more
As in every love story told on every isle shore
So, you wait, my sweet Leilani, as if you knew
That every dream of old Hawaii is a dream of you

When I dream of old Hawaii, I’m dreaming of you
With your polynesian smile and eyes of love true
For my Leilani, like tuberoses that each day stronger grew
When I dream of old Hawaii, I dream of you



My Next Love (Larry W. Jones 06/13/2004) (song#3085)

Well, I guess I’m thinking of the past
And maybe I’m living in it too
But I’m waiting for a love I know will last
Like a lonely island in a stream of blue
I know that when I meet the right one
It won’t come undone
Because my next love will be my last one too

I will fall in love again, no never
Unless I fall in love forever
And when the islands call to me again
Maybe then true love will finally begin
Instead of just a moonlight kiss
That fades away with the morning mist

When I hand my heart over
It will be given completely
And not to some callous rover
To sail away with it to sea
I know that when I meet the right one
It won’t come undone
Because my next love will be my last one too

I know that when I meet the right one
It won’t come undone
Because my next love will be my last one too



That’s When I’ll Forget (Larry W. Jones 06/13/2004) (song#3086)

The saddest day on the isle
Was when you met someone new
When you strolled away
And that’s when I knew
The day I forgot how to smile
When blue skies turned gray
I remember that you said Aloha when we met
Now it’s Aloha ‘oe and try to forget

When I forget to keep breathing
That’s when I’ll forget
That’s when I’ll forget about loving you

You can tell the tropical flowers
To stop blooming where tradewinds blow
You can tell the sunset
To stop painting the skies aglow
And you can tell the rainbows
To give up all their pots of gold
But no one can tell my broken heart
To forget to love you so

I remember that you said Aloha when we met
Now it’s Aloha ‘oe and try to forget
When I forget to keep breathing
That’s when I’ll forget
That’s when I’ll forget about loving you



That Somewhere Island (Larry W. Jones 06/14/2004) (song#3087)


Tonight I’ll be with the one I love again
Somewhere in my dream
I’ll hold her and kiss her once again
Somewhere in my dream

But I don’t know where her island is
For heaven’s sake
I only hear its siren call
It’s the song that only islands make
But I don’t know where somewhere is at all

Where is somewhere
How far away is somewhere
In all my dreams it’s very clear
That my love is somewhere very near

She’s strolling here somewhere in time
Oh, where is somewhere
Where is that island of somewhere
My heartstrings I always keep in tune
And I hope I find that somewhere island soon

Where is somewhere
Where is that island of somewhere
My heartstrings I always keep in tune
And I hope I find that somewhere island soon



Night Time On The Island (Larry W. Jones 06/14/2004) (song#3088)

When it’s night time on the island
My heart is prime for feelin’ light
When it’s night time on the island
I linger in the shelter of moonlight

Fields of sugar cane around me
Island folks singin’ sweet and low
I feel like heaven itself has found me
Where the gentle tradewinds blow

Strolling along the sandy shore
Who could ever ask for more
Lookin’ at the stars shine up above
Laughter on the island
Nothing good is shunned
People on the island got someone to love

When it’s night time on the island
All the heavens are there in sight
When it’s night time on the island
I linger in the shelter of moonlight

When it’s night time on the island
All the heavens are there in sight
When it’s night time on the island
I linger in the shelter of moonlight



Dear Old Tahiti (Larry W. Jones 06/14/2004) (song#3089)

Dear old Tahiti, I hear you calling me
Back to your golden shores so far away
I dream of you in southern seas
Every night and every day

I’ve spent time on many islands
And I’ve seen beauty so very rare
But Tahiti, with moonlight on your sands
Is beauty beyond compare

I long to return to dear old Tahiti
Underneath those southern skies
Your valleys fair and perfumed air
Are things in dreams of paradise

Tahitian lovers in old Papeete town
Palm trees swaying to and fro
Nobody there ever wears a frown
In dear old Tahiti-o

Your valleys fair and perfumed air
Are things in dreams of paradise

Tahitian lovers in old Papeete town
Palm trees swaying to and fro
Nobody there ever wears a frown
In dear old Tahiti-o



Moonlight On The Sand (Larry W. Jones 06/14/2004) (song#3090)

Oh Leilani, your sweet smile is calling me
And it always seems that in my dreams
I return to island scenes there by the sea
When we strolled along that island sand

Leilani, I know there’s still joy for you and me
On that island in the stream
Where we can dream of olden, golden days
Those island days that used to be
When we listened to those island bands

When it’s moonlight on island sand
And the tropic stars are shining grand
I’ll be returning back to see
If you’re yearning in the moonlight for me

With those golden beams soft on the dew
I’ll declare my everlasting love for you
I’ll be returning to claim your sweet hand
Leilani, when it’s moonlight on the sand

I’ll be returning to claim your sweet hand
Leilani, when it’s moonlight on the sand



Harvest Moon Of Gold (Larry W. Jones 06/14/2004) (song#3091)

When a harvest moon comes to the isle again
And tradewinds come to make the palm trees sway
When a harvest moon comes to the isle again
We’ll stroll hand in hand down by the bay

In my heart lingers memories of love
That makes my heart come in from the cold
Sweetheart, some day we’ll renew our love
There by the sea ‘neath a harvest moon of gold

Kisses that you gave me at the start
Were kisses that you saved for only me
In my dreams I never miss a one, sweetheart
Neath a harvest moon in my memory

We built sand castles in the sand together
Your love would be forever mine, I was told
Now I need your sweet love more than ever
There by the sea ‘neath a harvest moon of gold

Kisses that you gave me at the start
Were kisses that you saved for only me
In my dreams I never miss a one, sweetheart
Neath a harvest moon in my memory

We built sand castles in the sand together
Your love would be forever mine, I was told
Now I need your sweet love more than ever
There by the sea ‘neath a harvest moon of gold



Pretty Little Island Gal (Larry W. Jones 06/14/2004) (song#3092)

Here’s a story I know is true
About an island out in the blue
And a pretty little island gal
Whenever she comes into view
She gives me a smile or two
She’s my pretty little island pal

She makes me feel so happy
And I told her so
And when she’s strolling by my side
My heart fills with love just like the tide
I love that little gal so

And in the evening in old Lahaina town
It’s like the sun never does go down
When my honey strolls down the shore
The shorebirds go more! more! more!

She’s so sweet with all her charms
And when she kisses, my lips stay warmed
When my honey strolls down the shore
The shorebirds go more! more! more!
I like my Kona coffee sweet
And I’m gonna sweeten everything I eat
With that island gal that I adore

And when she’s strolling by my side
My heart fills with love just like the tide
And in the evening in old Lahaina town
It’s like the sun never does go down
When my honey strolls down the shore
The shorebirds go more! more! more!



Emotion For Hawaii Blue (Larry W. Jones 06/14/2004) (song#3093)

You know that every native island son
When his ocean sailing days are done
Gets a feeling forlorn but warm
For that island where he was born
And I know that I’m just like the rest
Cause I can feel that feeling in my breast
Calling my return to islands I know best

I can see that green Manoa valley
And rainbows that shine above it there
I can see those tall palm trees
That still stand and wave to me
Swaying to the balmy tradewind air
I know I’ll be sailing back there soon
I can smell the sweet perfume
The month of June will see me there

When twilight falls, the ocean is calling Hawaii
Sheltering palms stretch out welcome arms
The tradewind breeze sends memories of Hawaii
And in dreams I’ve seen the islands lovely charms
Someone I know is waiting there to meet me
Her polynesian eyes said they’d be true
I’m returning for loving arms to greet me
Sailing the ocean with emotion for Hawaii blue



Old Koa Footbridge (Larry W. Jones 06/14/2004) (song#3094)

Yellow gingers were blooming
Old island days resuming
When I slowly closed my eyes
Island scenes came back clearly
Places I love so dearly
Under bright tropic skies
The sun was there shining
My heart was still pining
In dreams of you
Back on the isle where I first saw you smile
Is now a memory too

Your love was a treasure, I remember with pleasure
Those old island days
We never thought that tomorrow
Might bring parting and sorrow
That today grimly pays
Back in our childhood
Who’d ever guess the days would
Go by on the fly
Those island days beyond compare
With treasures so rare, are days that never die

When the old koa footbridge was new
That’s when and where I fell in love with you
Aloha was all I said, my mind you must have read
As we stood on that new koa bridge, just we two
As the tradewinds did blow
So our love began to flow
Just like the warm waters below
Those memories are sweet yet
And I know I’ll never forget
When the old koa footbridge was new



Blue Blue Bluebird (Larry W. Jones 06/14/2004) (song#3095)

When the blue, blue bluebird flew, flew, flew with a song
When the blue, blue bluebird flew, flew, flew with a song, a song
There was no more boo hooing when he started coo, cooing his song
So, get up, get up you lazy one
Get up, get out in the sun
Cheer up, cheer up, the skies are blue
Paradise is waiting for you
There’s no reason to be so blue
When you’re strolling where tradewinds play
When rain comes falling, rainbows will come a-calling
And you can be a kid again, doing what you did again, singing along
When the blue, blue bluebird flew, flew, flew with a song
When the blue, blue bluebird flew, flew, flew
When the blue, blue bluebird flew, flew, flew with a song
There was no more boo hooing when he started coo, cooing his song
There was no more boo hooing when he started coo, cooing his song, his song
So, get up, get up you lazy one
Get up, get out in the sun
Cheer up, cheer up, the skies are blue
Paradise is waiting for you
There’s no reason to be so blue
When you’re strolling where tradewinds play
When rain comes falling, rainbows will come a-calling
And you can be a kid again, doing what you did again, singing along
When the blue, blue bluebird flew, flew, flew with a song
When the blue, blue bluebird flew, flew, flew
When the blue, blue bluebird flew, flew, flew with a song



Where The Pua Tuberoses Bloom (Larry W. Jones 06/14/2004) (song#3096)

He was sailing through the islands
Where the pua tuberoses bloom
A sailor with his ku’u ipo sweetheart true
Their hearts were heavy with the sorrow
Of his sailing come tomorrow
As she gave a lei of fragrant flowers blue
Dear, I beg you come and listen
As I have these parting words to say
At four bells, moonlight on the sails will glisten
As my ship upon the tide then sails away
But please don’t let me see you crying
Underneath the tropic moon
For back to you my ship will soon be plying
Where the pua tuberoses bloom

Where the pua tuberoses bloom beside the sea
And birds of paradise spread stately plumes
Back to our isle where love is so divine
I’ll return to you, ku’u ipo sweetheart mine
Where the pua tuberoses bloom

In the midst of the gale came a solitary wail
And then a sailor whispered soft and low
I am dying, I am dying, now it’s time to go
And I beg you please to hear my plea
There’s a far and distant island
Where the pua tuberoses bloom
And my sweetheart is waiting there for me
Take me there I beg you as I now face my doom
For I must be with her on that island in the sea
Where the pua tuberoses bloom
Where the pua tuberoses bloom



Ku’u Nani Lei Lehua (Larry W. Jones 06/14/2004) (song#3097)

Ku’u nani lei lehua
You seem to be from the heavens above
A dream and balm for a heart in love
On this isle of paradise

Ku’u nani lei lehua
Polynesian eyes twinkling bright
Like stars in heaven out tonight
So are your heavenly eyes

As the sunshine in the morning
Smiles upon the flowers dew
My heart can feel the warming
Of smiles that come from you

Ku’u nani lei lehua
My beautiful blossom flower rare
It’s because of you, there are
Nani lei lehua blossoms everywhere

Ku’u nani lei lehua
I love you on this island shore
Ku’u nani lei lehua
I will love you for evermore



The Dream Of You (Larry W. Jones 06/14/2004) (song#3098)

This thing can happen at anytime
It seems it doesn’t need a reason or a rhyme
You can’t see it coming on tradewinds
But you know it’s not far behind
Something I thought was gone and faded
Is like a love song played endlessly
At any time my thoughts are invaded
When the dream of you calls out to me

It sometimes happens on a sunday stroll
In island sand under a sky of blue
Or when I’m sitting in the Hula Bowl
Watching a game or two
Every mile that I’m on the isle
Every smile I see was what used to be
When the dream of you calls out to me

When the dream of you calls out to me
I return to a love that’s still here inside of me

This thing can happen in the day or in the night
In any month and any day of the week
I can’t number the great delights
When I slumber in my sleep
The siren calls from over the sea
Always have to do with you, you see
When the dream of you calls out to me
When the dream of you calls out to me



When One Dream Is Denied (Larry W. Jones 06/15/2004) (song#3099)


The timing was wrong
And so was the song
Your dream was so different from mine
I tried all along
To fit in or belong
But what happened was just a matter of time

At the start it was paradise
But my heart paid the price
And in time I had to swallow my pride
Now I don’t have to think twice
To fools I give this advice
That’s what happens when one dream is denied

Oh, we both had our dream
But we were separate islands in the stream

The timing was wrong
And so was the song
Your dream was so different from mine
I tried all along
To fit in or belong
But what happened was just a matter of time

At the start it was paradise
But my heart paid the price
And in time I had to swallow my pride
Now I don’t have to think twice
To fools I give this advice
That’s what happens when one dream is denied



Thirty One Hundred (Larry W. Jones 06/15/2004) (song#3100)

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

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



Pretty Hawaiian Hula Girl (Larry W. Jones 06/15/2004) (song#3101)

Pretty hawaiian hula girl
Over where the breakers curl
You’re breaking my heart in two
In that island sand
My heart is in your lovely hands
Though my dream can’t come true

Pretty hawaiian hula girl
More than your grass skirt’s in a whirl
You flirt with hula hands
That seem to say
Away from these island sands
My dreams will go one day
So, while I’m in your world
I’ll have to just pretend
Pretty hawaiian hula girl
That my dreams will never end

The setting sun is a burning flame
And the yearning in my heart’s the same
In these isles of love
Your gracefulness is grand
My heart is in your hands
In my dreams thereof
So, while I’m in your world
I’ll have to just pretend
Pretty hawaiian hula girl
That my dreams will never end



Polynesian Secret (Larry W. Jones 06/15/2004) (song#3102)

Deep in the heart of polynesia
There lives a secret, sweet and true
Where softly the tradewind blows
There grows an island tuberose
And the secret dear, I give to you

All my love, sweetheart, I give to you
Written on the petals of a tuberose
And my love I swear will ‘ere be true
Just as steady as the tradewind blows

Sweet little island tuberose
Written on your petals made of gold
Sweet little island tuberose
Around her heart may your petals ever fold

This secret, dear rose, is one so sweet
On your soft petals I beg you keep
My words of love that are so real
And to none other will you reveal
So that only my true love knows
When she feels the petals of my island tuberose



When You Strolled Into View (Larry W. Jones 06/15/2004) (song#3103)


When I slowed down to an island pace
In old Lahaina town I saw your face
Steel guitars started playing tunes there too
When you strolled into view

I blinked my eyes for a second
I found myself in paradise, I reckon
Old Lahaina town seemed like brand new
When you strolled into view

You were such a dream come true
Strolling by the way you do
Don’t be offended by my stares
It just means that my heart cares

I found a brand new island refrain
Even though I barely know your name
I knew I was squarely in love with you
When you strolled into view

You were such a dream come true
Strolling by the way you do
Don’t be offended by my stares
It just means that my heart cares

I found a brand new island refrain
Even though I barely know your name
I knew I was squarely in love with you
When you strolled into view

I knew I was squarely in love with you
When you strolled into view



Merrie Monarch Queen (Larry W. Jones 06/15/2004) (song#3104)

Dear, I will kiss your tears away
Smooth your hair that’s turned to gray
Tresses that once were gold
Remember where the tradewinds blow
And those isles of love so long ago
Such days are never old
Remember how birds of paradise were singing
Softly winging, sweet Maui chimes were ringing
All joys of island love the songs were bringing
When first my love for you I told

Time to us has been as good
As it ever could
But time is no longer on our side
Sometimes I feel the eternal tide
But we can smile because we shared
All the sorrows, joys and island air
And we did it side by side
In dreams I still hear birds of paradise singing
See them softly winging
Hear sweet Maui chimes ringing
My heart is to those island days fondly clinging
When you were my blushing bride

Remember the islands green, dear
And how clean was old Lahaina town
You wore a fragrant lei of braid
As queen of the Merrie Monarch parade
Lehua blossoms were scattered all around
You were the fairest there that day
When you stole my heart away
And you’re still just as fair as I’ve ever seen
As when you were the Merrie Monarch Queen



Eyes That Say Everything (Larry W. Jones 06/15/2004) (song#3105)

It’s incredible how your eyes speak to mine
No words are said, but I can read them just fine
It’s hard to explain the song your eyes sing
But I hear music when your eyes say everything

Your face has a smile that says you love me
No one could replace or go up above you
When we stroll hand in hand, I hear islands call
From eyes that say everything or nothing at all

It’s just like a song meant to be sung out loud
And the songstress is you, apart from the crowd
People may wonder but they’ll never find
The secrets that flow from your eyes to mine

Your face has a smile that says you love me
No one could replace or go up above you
When we stroll hand in hand, I hear islands call
From eyes that say everything or nothing at all

Your face has a smile that says you love me
No one could replace or go up above you
When we stroll hand in hand, I hear islands call
From eyes that say everything or nothing at all



My Sweet Sixteen (Larry W. Jones 06/15/2004) (song#3106)

Sweet sixteen is what you were
Sweet sixteen is what you were
And I still love you on this island shore
You’re still the only love that I prefer
You’re my sweet sixteen that I adore
You’re still my island queen
My sweet sixteen

You were my first and only love in paradise
I knew it the moment I looked into your eyes
And even though we’re now so very far apart
You’re still the same sweet sixteen here in my heart

And I still love you on this island shore
You’re still the only love that I prefer
You’re my sweet sixteen that I adore
You’re still my island queen
My sweet sixteen

And I still love you on this island shore
You’re still the only love that I prefer
You’re my sweet sixteen that I adore
You’re still my island queen
My sweet sixteen



Wish Upon A Star (Larry W. Jones 06/15/2004) (song#3107)

If you wish upon a star
Makes no difference where you are
Islands will call from afar
And love’s desire within your heart
Will answer you

If you hear some steel guitars
Then islands can’t be very far
And if you wish upon a star
You’ll find them too

You’ll find that happiness is not a dream
And wishing for happiness is not extreme
All you need is an island scene
For dreams to come true

But time is of the essence
Don’t waste it whoever you are
Tropic stars have luminescence
That’s way above par

Like an illusion out of the blue
There’s no delusion what islands can do
And if you wish upon a star
You’ll find it to be true
Dreams are what islands are



When You Wore A Lei (Larry W. Jones 06/15/2004) (song#3108)

When you wore a lei
A sweet yellow ginger lei
And I wore a paniolo sombrero

The tradewinds caressed you
I thought heaven had blessed you
And what a fine blessing, I know

You made my life cheerful
Your voice was a sweet ear full
Over where soft tradewinds blow

Aloha, your kiss seemed to say
When you wore a sweet yellow ginger lei
And I wore a paniolo sombrero

You made my life cheerful
Your voice was a sweet ear full
Over where soft tradewinds blow

Aloha, your kiss seemed to say
When you wore a sweet yellow ginger lei
And I wore a paniolo sombrero



Silver Tresses (Larry W. Jones 06/15/2004) (song#3109)

Though your tresses turn to silver
I confess this just the same
I’ll still call you ku’u ipo sweetheart
For that will always be your island name

Around this island filled with roses
Down by the bay we will stroll
And though your tresses turn to silver
My love for you will still be gold

My love for you is as the sunset
When it sets upon the sea
A firey flame will it be yet
My love for you will always be

Though your tresses turn to silver
I confess this just the same
I’ll still call you ku’u ipo sweetheart
For that will always be your island name

Around this island filled with roses
Down by the bay we will stroll
And though your tresses turn to silver
My love for you will still be gold



A Sailor’s Song (Larry W. Jones 06/15/2004) (song#3110)

I know that on the isle the sun is shining
Someone is waiting there and pining
She shall always be my island gal
My dream come true
What’s the use of sailing oceans sighing
A sailor’s life is one of crying
When you’re so far away from home
And feeling blue

When I disembark this ship, I’ll hurry
Back to my island where folks don’t worry
I’ll just say Aloha ‘oe goodbye
To this ship I’m on
Give me back the sand and sunshine
And that balmy air that smells fine
Take me back to my isle
Where I was born

When a sailor’s a long way from home
On a whaler you’re so all alone
It’s hard to find someone, it’s true
To tell all of your troubles to
And you can’t even write a letter home
When the arctic wind rings in your ears
And you miss your island gal’s kisses
Whaling is such a strange business
That can bring you to tears
On a whaler you’re so all alone
When a sailor’s a long way from home



When You’re Happy (Larry W. Jones 06/15/2004) (song#3111)

When you’re happy, keep bein’ happy
And the islands will smile on you
Cause when you’re smilin’, you’re so beguilin’
And that brings the tropic sunshine too

And don’t you ever frown
Cause that will only bring the rain
When you’re in old Lahaina town
You’ll never be lonely again

Cause when you’re happy, keep bein’ happy
And the islands will smile on you
Cause when you’re smilin’, you’re so beguilin’
And that brings the tropic sunshine too

And don’t you ever frown
Cause that will only bring the rain
When you’re in old Lahaina town
You’ll never be lonely again

Cause when you’re happy, keep bein’ happy
And the islands will smile on you
Cause when you’re smilin’, you’re so beguilin’
And that brings the tropic sunshine too

Now don’t be a blue blue sappy
You can be hap hap happy
Cause when you’re happy, keep bein’ happy
And the islands will smile
More than just a little while
The islands will smile on you



Your Memory (Larry W. Jones 06/16/2004) (song#3112)

I left old Lahaina town
To find some peace of mind
Australia was way on down
But no release could I find
I went to every place in the blue
But your memory was waitnig there too

I visited awhile in Mandalay
But you were there too
I checked out Montego Bay
But Jamaica just wouldn’t do
In Bora Bora I was bored to death too
But I found lots of mem’ries of you

I thought I could just travel
Run away from romance
Not a chance
I went to so many places
One, well I can’t even place it
I covered all the bases
But I had to just face it
I went to every place in the blue
But your memory was waitnig there too

Back in old Lahaina town again
Bid Aloha ‘oe to Tahiti
And Aloha to the same old pain
Your mem’ry still follows me
I would trade all the places I’ve been
To evade this sad state that I’m in
I’ll stay here waiting for you
While your mem’ry’s waiting here too



Where Is My Island (Larry W. Jones 06/16/2004) (song#3113)

More than once I’ve tried
To keep from being hard aground
I could see the shore
Before the shore was found

And everytime I thought that love
Would come strolling hand in hand
But it made tracks back
And disappeared in island sand

Where is my island
Where is my peaceful sea
I can’t last much longer in this dream
Where is my rainbow
That over Manoa valley glows
Where is that island love meant for me

The next time I cross that blue ocean wide
I’ll be there to stay
Until the moon doesn’t bring the tide
Until the palm trees forget how to sway

Cause I’m gonna plant myself in sand
Be an island man
Until I find an island love
Who looks like she’s from the realms above
Where is my island
Oh, where is my island…



Lovely Tropic Rose (Larry W. Jones 06/20/2004) (song#3114)

Lovely tropic rose
You are my island rose of love
As heaven itself shows
Your beauty is from above

Within a rose there often lies
A petal kissed by morning dew
It is there to visualize
The lovely tropic rose that’s you

I am gone now, far away
And the hours without you make me blue
Time itself may pass away
But Aloha, my lovely tropic rose, I love you

Lovely tropic rose
You are the island’s sweetest song
Where the tradewind softly blows
Remember me now that I’m gone



She Is The Beginning (Larry W. Jones 06/20/2004) (song#3115)

Where is the beginning
Of the island talk stories of how true love can be
The love talk stories as old as islands in the sea
And the meaning that her love has brought to me
Where is the beginning part

Just as the tropic rain
Falls to cool the summer breezes that blow
She strolled into my life and made love grow
And the meaning of her love I surely know
She is the beginning part

She fills my life with lovely things
With island songs she plays on my heart strings
With her my very soul I gladly share
And anywhere I go, I’m never blue
I hear her song and I sing it too
When I need footprints in the sand to share
She’s always there

How long does true island love last
Surely not just an hour nor just a day
But as in old island talk stories of the past
True island love will stay where tradewinds play
Until time itself has passed

Just as the tropic rain
Falls to cool the summer breezes that blow
She strolled into my life and made love grow
And the meaning of her love I surely know
For she is the beginning part of true island love



Paradise Island (Larry W. Jones 06/20/2004) (song#3116)

On which paradise island are you
Where in the world can I find you
On which paradise island are you
I only wish that I knew

Though I can’t be near you
It seems that I hear you sometimes
Though my eyes cannot see you
I can see the words spelling rhymes
Of dreams that come true

Was that you that just went by without a word
Or was it a tradewind sigh that I heard
I will search low, and high up to a star
To find that paradise island of love
That paradise island where you are

On which paradise island are you
Where in the world can I find you
On which paradise island are you
I only wish that I knew

Was that you that just went by without a word
Or was it a tradewind sigh that I heard
I will search low, and high up to a star
To find that paradise island of love
That paradise island where you are



A Sunny Morning (Larry W. Jones 06/20/2004) (song#3117)

Oh, I want to wake up on a sunny morning
Where sweet island tuberoses grow
My heart won’t ache from pain or mourning
When a sunny island morning says hello

When that tropic sunshine comes a-peeping
And birds of paradise sing Aloha
I’ll wake up on a sunny morn from sleeping
Where sweet island tuberoses grow

Oh, I want to stroll along that sandy shore
Where the balmy tradewinds softly blow
And see those palms of my childhood lore
Where sweet island tuberoses grow

I’ll stroll down by the peaceful water
And watch the sunrise upon the bay
And all day long, there I’ll gladly loiter
To watch it set again at end of day

Oh, I want to stroll along that sandy shore
Where the balmy tradewinds softly blow
And see those palms of my childhood lore
Where sweet island tuberoses grow

And see those palms of my childhood lore
Where sweet island tuberoses grow



Tears Will Sting Again (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2004) (song#3118)

As I look out at the crowd
My guitar strings are cryin’ low
I stand and sing the song out loud
That makes them sigh where breezes blow

It’s hard to know just what to say
When a love you know just strolls away
So, I’ll let my guitar strings hold sway
It makes them sigh for island love, I know

I don’t know why nobody ever told me
How to undo a love that’s gone
This old guitar I play here by the sea
Cries for that love that’s now withdrawn

I look at paradise as it fades away
And my guitar strings are cryin’ low
I stand and smile at the crowd anyway
But tears will sting again, I know

I don’t know why nobody ever told me
How to undo a love that’s gone
This old guitar I play here by the sea
Cries for that love that’s now withdrawn

I look at paradise as it fades away
And my guitar strings are cryin’ low
I stand and smile at the crowd anyway
But tears will sting again, I know

My guitar strings are cryin’ low
And tears will sting again, I know
Tears will sting again



Stars In The Tropics (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2004) (song#3119)

Love of my heart you are, dear
But you wonder if my love is true
Could it be that you feel, dear
That my love is not only for you
Go ahead and wonder if the sun will keep shining
Go ahead and wonder if the sky will stay blue
You may wonder when the world will end, dear
But never wonder if my love will end for you

Birds of paradise are softly singing
Songs that their mates love to hear
Island flowers are with perfume bringing
Love to the one that is so dear
Heart speaks to heart with a message clear
And that message has never been wrong
This is the island’s love message to you, dear
And this is my own island love song

Just as the stars in the tropics shine on
And the warm tropic sun greets the dawn
This love that I know, for you it will grow
And that my love will remain is foregone
My heart will always beat just for you
And each day it is sure to renew
Go ahead and wonder if the rivers will ever run dry
But never wonder if my love for you will die
Just as the stars in the tropics shine on



Ukuleles Three (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2004) (song#3120)

Any day down by the bay
I can hear the playing ukuleles
But as they play, I still say
It was better on those luau Fridays

He sat on a chair at the Friday luau dance
With a foot on a battered ukulele case
And the folks coming there would be in a trance
As he played with a smile on his face

His fingers played the strings of the ukuleles
And island folks would dance round and round
No better luau show did anyone see
From Waikiki to old Lahaina town

But in 1980, Gabby Pahinui died
And his uke playing fingers were no more
Island folks, to a man and woman, cried
For his ukuleles died by the shore

But on a balmy Friday night
If you’re at a luau by the sea
If you listen closely, you just might
Hear on the tradewind Gabby Pahinui
Still playing on his ukuleles three



Whispering Palms (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2004) (song#3121)

Snowflakes fall here as islands call, dear
And time seems to be standing still
It’s this emptiness in me, I fear
That time itself may never heal
My heart’s in sorrow like a lonely dove
That’s lost its way in flight
And tomorrow his cries thereof
Can be heard in dead of night

Whispering palms, whispering palms
Tell me where tradewinds blow
Whispering palms, whispering palms
Surely you will know
My sweetheart’s gone from your tropic zone
And my heart begs you please
Please call my sweetheart back to me

A bird of paradise is in a tall palm tree
He calls to his mate down on the ground
His call is to his love there by the sea
Singing of the love that they have found
Oh, is my darling still my sweetheart
And where did my island sweetheart go
Send my message on fair tradewinds
And tell her that I love her so

Whispering palms, whispering palms
Tell me where tradewinds blow
Whispering palms, whispering palms
Surely you will know
My sweetheart’s gone from your tropic zone
And my heart begs you please
Please call my sweetheart back to me



Whispers In The Night (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2004) (song#3122)

Listen closely and you might
Hear whispers in the night
From two shadows in the pale moonlight
Speaking tender, gentle words of love

Listen closely and you might
Hear music in the night
And every song is sweet delight
Whispers in the night of island love

Whispers in the night
From some other place and time they seem
A dream that might come true
Just for me and you are love’s moonbeams

Now we hear the tradewind whisper through the palms
Soon will come the morning calm
And soon this velvet night of paradise will disappear
Whispers in the night
While moonlight shines upon the morning dew
Another time in this same place we’ll hear
As the tradewind whispers in the night
Whispers in the night for me and you



Hawaiian Steel Guitar Strings (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2004) (song#3123)

From out of the moonlight
You drifted with a sigh through palm trees
From out of the moonlight
On a tropical night by the sea
You played an island love song for me

Hawaiian steel guitar strings
On the breeze you drifted to me
Steel guitar strings
Oh, why must it be that you sing
An island love song for me

Hawaiian steel guitar strings
You made me remember that she
Left me alone with my dreams
And now, steel guitar strings
You only play lonely love songs for me

While golden moonbeams are on the sea
Your silver strings sound so lonely to me
You haunt my memory
Hawaiian steel guitar strings of island love

Hawaiian steel guitar strings
On the breeze you drifted to me
Steel guitar strings
Oh, why must it be that you sing
An island love song for me

Oh, why must it be that you sing
An island love song for me



A Song Of Old Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2004) (song#3124)

Sing me a song of old Hawaii
An island lover’s melody
A song of old Hawaii
When island love was still a mystery

Sing me a song of old Hawaii
A serenade upon tradewinds that blow
Aloha au ia ‘oe
A song of old Hawaii
That drifts through the trees upon the breeze
Whenever the tropical moon is low

My heart is feeling oh, so light
My love is with me here tonight
Aloha au ia ‘oe
Sing me a song of old Hawaii
A song of old Hawaii tonight

I can smell the fragrance of lehua leis
It seems to drift from across the bays
Just like a song that sounds along here too
A song of old Hawaii
Aloha au ia ‘oe
A song of my new found love for you

Aloha au ia ‘oe
Aloha au ia ‘oe
A song of old Hawaii
That says Aloha I love you



Sleepy Yellow Moon (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2004) (song#3125)

A sleepy yellow moon
Rises over a lovely blue lagoon
To kiss the golden sand
That you and I make footprints in

And I know that soon
That sleepy yellow moon
Will awaken love so grand
For you and me that will not end

Both of our hearts are in tune
Under that sleepy yellow moon
I guess it’s the month of June
That brings such a lovely island scene

It’s times like this when lovers swoon
Under a big balloon
And that’s why I’m not immune
To giving you this diamond wedding ring

Tall palm fronds wave in the breeze
As if they’re pleased
That we’re under this spell
In Hawaii blue

And I know that soon
That sleepy yellow moon
Will be able to tell
Our love is true



Cool Blue Seas (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2004) (song#3126)

Let me sing to you a song about
Cool blue seas
A tradewind breeze
Island days and tall palm trees

Fragrant flower leis
Warm waters of the bays
Harbor lights at night
Island days and cool blue seas

Girls who dance the hula
Paniolo cowboys up in Kula
Island ways and cool blue seas
A moon at night for you and me

Let me sing you to a song about Hawaii
Old island talk stories in all their glory
Cool blue seas and a warm love story
And a moon at night for you and me

Fragrant flower leis
Warm waters of the bays
Harbor lights at night
Island days and cool blue seas

Girls who dance the hula
Paniolo cowboys up in Kula
Island ways and cool blue seas
A moon at night for you and me

Island ways and cool blue seas
A moon at night for you and me



Blue Island Flower (Larry W. Jones 06/22/2004) (song#3127)

She was mine and she had polynesian black hair
She wore roses of blue on an island so fair
And flowers all bloomed in the early morning dew
She was my only true love here in Hawaii blue

She would dance, she would sing all my cares away
She charmed my very heart with her graceful hula sway
Then I awoke from my dream that quickly drifted away
My hopes of island love would fade to blue on that day

She said she would love me with unending love
And would treasure mine over others thereof
How my heart is breaking only misery can tell
She left with no goodbye, no Aloha ‘oe farewell

She knew that I loved her, I called her my flower
A rose that was blooming for love’s wedding bower
Oh how my heart longs to see her in my lonely hour
She’s gone but not forgotten, my blue island flower



Forgive And Forget (Larry W. Jones 06/22/2004) (song#3128)

If I could bring back days of the past
With those happy and care free hours
I would not see that now at last
Our love has faded like island flowers
We strolled hand in hand with gladness
Oh, why now must we be parted
If only island roses could banish sadness
I wouldn’t feel this broken hearted

Don’t remove your picture from my heart
For that would take away the light of day
And if footprints in the sand should ever part
All my fondest dreams would fade away
A misunderstanding should not now sever
The dreams and happiness we’ve known
Oh, please be my ku’u ipo sweetheart forever
Here on the isle where Aloha love is shown

Don’t say Aloha ‘oe, farewell must not be spoken
For that would only bring me tears and bitter sighs
Don’t say our pledge of love will ‘ere be broken
With a sad Aloha ‘oe which means goodbye
Oh, return to me with warm and fond caresses
The flame for you in my heart is burning yet
Any blame is mine alone my heart confesses
And I beg you to forgive and to forget



Melody In My Heart (Larry W. Jones 06/22/2004) (song#3129)

There’s a melody here in my heart
Every time I see your lovely face
A simple island song when it starts
That grows to a symphony of your grace

And then the orchestra starts to play
As I watch your hula sway
And when I’m holding your hand, dear
I can feel your love standing near

When I hear the softness of your voice
It’s like the gentle tradewind on the sea
How can I help but then rejoice
That such an island song was meant to be

I always dreamed that there would be
Someone to share life’s every part, it’s true
And now it seems you came to me
And put a melody in my heart for only you

And now it seems you came to me
And put a melody in my heart for only you



With All Of My Heart (Larry W. Jones 06/22/2004) (song#3130)

Aloha au ia ‘oe with all of my heart
You’re the only island girl I adore
And to know you loved me
You loved me from the start
Makes me want to love you more

I swear to you that I’ll be true
I’ll be true in every little way
I’ll be kind and gentle too
And show love to you each day

Aloha au ia’oe with all of my heart
You’re the only island girl I adore
And to know you loved me
You loved me from the start
Makes me want to love you more

Aloha au ia ‘oe with all of my heart
I will always love you with such care
Please love me with all of your heart
And on this isle of love be always there



In These Sands (Larry W. Jones 06/22/2004) (song#3131)

In these sands, let my heart cling to you
Here on this isle forever and a day
In these sands, my love will bring to you
A love as warm as waters in the bay

In this heart, island songs I’ll sing for you
Under tropic stars and moonlight’s glow
And in these sands, I’ll take care of you
Stormy seas won’t stop a love that grows

In these sands, I’ll turn the tide for you
Love can do all where tradewinds blow
When islands call, I’ll come running to you
And in these sands, I’ll never let you go

In this heart, island songs I’ll sing for you
Under tropic stars and moonlight’s glow
And in these sands, I’ll take care of you
Stormy seas won’t stop a love that grows

In these sands, I’ll turn the tide for you
Love can do all where tradewinds blow
When islands call, I’ll come running to you
And in these sands, I’ll never let you go

In these sands, I’ll never let you go



Always On My Mind (Larry W. Jones 06/22/2004) (song#3132)

I’ll stroll the isle all by myself
Here on the isle there’s nothing left
Cause I can’t think of nothing else
But my love for you from time to time
It seems to be the daily grind
Since you’re gone, you’re always on my mind

Yesterday I picked a rose and felt the thorn
Where tradewind blows I felt so forlorn
I know that every day when you are gone
Another memory of you is what I’ll find
I’ll need them all just to carry on
Since you’re gone, you’re always on my mind

Maybe some day, again I’ll learn to live
If in some way you’ll return to me
Here by the sea, there’s still love to give
For in my heart, love still burns endlessly
Maybe some day, again I’ll find
You’ll be right here and always on my mind

I know that every day when you are gone
Another memory of you is what I’ll find
I’ll need them all just to carry on
Since you’re gone, you’re always on my mind



With An Island Song (Larry W. Jones 06/22/2004) (song#3133)

With an island song, even a bad day has an end
With an island song, tall palm trees sway and bend
With an island song, even when things go wrong
Every woman and man can still find a friend
With an island song

Without a song, that field of sugar cane
Would never feel the rain and turn to sugar now
Without a song, when an island child is born
He wouldn’t know ohana love any way or how
Without an island song

With an island song, even when there’s trouble and woe
That wide blue pacific ocean will continue to roll
(Roll you wide pacific ocean)
With an island song, I’ll get along and reach my goal
With an island song in my soul

I might never know what makes a rainbow shine
I might never know the taste of choicest wine
But I know when islands call there’s love for all
With an island song

With an island song, even when there’s trouble and woe
That wide blue pacific ocean will continue to roll
(Roll you wide pacific ocean)
With an island song, I’ll get along and reach my goal
With an island song in my soul

I might never know what makes a rainbow shine
I might never know the taste of choicest wine
But I know when islands call there’s love for all
With an island song



Little Island Baby (Larry W. Jones 06/22/2004) (song#3134)

Little island baby, livin’ on ohana love
When the sandman comes from up above
He’ll take you to ride on new rainbows
Where little island babies all count their toes

Little island baby, everything is so brand new
I don’t mean maybe that I’m glad for you
This old world’s mad but I won’t tell you so
A peaceful new one will come someday I know

Little island baby, livin’ on ohana love
When the sandman comes from up above
He’ll take you to ride on new rainbows
Where little island babies all count their toes

Little island baby, I want to watch you grow
Your mama and daddy will love you so
But what life is about, you may never know
It changes fast even where tradewinds blow

Little island baby, we’re gonna hold you dear
Ohana love on the island is what you’ll hear
We’ll try to make all your dreams come true
Here on the island, that’s what all dreams do

Little island baby, livin’ on ohana love
When the sandman comes from up above
He’ll take you to ride on new rainbows
Where little island babies all count their toes



Write Me From Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 06/23/2004) (song#3135)

Write to me from Hawaii
What’s new in Hawaii blue
I loved you in Hawaii
I thought you loved me too

Call me broken hearted
You broke my dreams in two
Write me from Hawaii
I’ll mail my broken heart to you

I can hear a steel guitar
Crying soft in paradise
I wish upon a falling star
As tears fall from my eyes

Since we said Aloha ‘oe
Dreams drowned in the sea
Write me from Hawaii
Send me some sympathy

Write me from Hawaii
What’s new in Hawaii blue
Write me from Hawaii
And I’ll mail my heart to you

Please write me from Hawaii
And say you’ll return to me



Kimo’s Leilani Island Belle (Larry W. Jones 06/23/2004) (song#3136)

It was an island wedding
And all the island folks wished them well
You could see that Kimo
Did truly love his Leilani island belle
And now the young kane and wahini
Have rung the Maui chimes as well
Can’t you see, said the island folks
We knew it would turn out well
They furnished off a little grass shack
With bamboo curtains that sure were nice
The coolerator was crammed to the back
With lots of poi and fish and rice
And when Kimo found work in old Lahaina town
The little money comin’ in sure was swell
Can’t you see, said all the island folks around
We knew it would turn out well
Kimo had a koa wood ukulele
And he could really play it fast
Lots of rockin’ island tunes
Leilani listened as the tradewinds passed
And when the tropic sun went down
His acoustic steel guitar sounded swell
Can’t you see, said the island folks
We knew it would turn out well
They bought an outrigger canoe
It was brand new and fast as could be
They paddled over to Waikiki
To celebrate their anniversary
It was there that Kimo
Romanced his lovely Leilani island belle
Can’t you see, said the island folks
We knew it would turn out well



Your Island Touch (Larry W. Jones 06/23/2004) (song#3137)

You’ve got that island touch
That makes me love you oh, so much
Those Maui chimes ring every time
With your island touch

Oh yes, when you’re in my arms
I feel your every charm
Nothing else could mean as much
As your island touch

When we go strolling
Sweet island love comes rolling
Smooth as the tide when I’m with you

I never felt this rush
Until I felt your touch
My heart always yearned
And now it has learned
Just how to return
Your island touch

When we go strolling
Sweet island love comes rolling
Smooth as the tide when I’m with you

I never felt this rush
Until I felt your touch
My heart always yearned
And now it has learned
Just how to return
Your island touch



Maui Whalermen (Larry W. Jones 06/23/2004) (song#3138)

Aloha ‘oe to all you fine spanish ladies
Aloha ‘oe to all of you ladies of spain
For we’ve received orders to sail for the arctic
By way of old Maui and ‘nere see you again

We’ll rant and we’ll roar like true Maui whalermen
We’ll rant and we’ll roar on deck and below
Until we sight the light at the Bay of Honolua
And then around to old Lahaina we’ll go

We hove our ship with the wind from the northwest, boys
We hove our ship for deep soundings to take
Twas 45 fathoms with light sandy bottom
We squared our main yard for old Lahaina to make

I went to a luau that night in old Maui
There were hula wahinis as fine as you wish
There was one pretty maiden a-dancin’ the hula
And a dozen more eatin’ poi with their fish

Then the signal was sent for to pull up the anchor
And all in the town to the ship where she lies
Pull up the shank painter, belay the cat stopper
Haul up the clew garnets, let tacks and sheet fly

We’ll rant and we’ll roar like true Maui whalermen
We’ll rant and we’ll roar on deck and below
Until we sight the light at the Bay of Honolua
And then over the foam to the arctic we’ll go



Dreams Of Yesterday (Larry W. Jones 06/23/2004) (song#3139)

Dreams of yesterday were born on the isle
Dreams of yesterday made both of us smile
We strolled the sand and the world was grand
Then came the teardrops that were so unplanned

Dreams of yesterday drifted so far away
A new day dawned and now they’re gone today
Maybe the sorrow we have here today
Will be gone tomorrow and just fade away
Then dreams of yesterday will finally come true

Dreams of yesterday drifted so far away
A new day dawned and now they’re gone today
Maybe the sorrow we know here today
Will be gone tomorrow and just fade away
Then dreams of yesterday will finally come true

(spoken)
You know, dreams of yesterday were born on the isle
They made both of us smile, for awhile
Then they just drifted away, gone with a new born dawn
Maybe someday they’ll return, and come true

Maybe the sorrow we know here today
Will be gone tomorrow and just fade away
Then dreams of yesterday will finally come true
Then dreams of yesterday will finally come true



On A Tradewind Island (Larry W. Jones 06/23/2004) (song#3140)

On a tradewind island
Life is more than just a melody
On a tradewind island
Tradewinds will sing to you and me

Two can share a tradewind island
Without a care there by the sea
Come and share my tradewind island
You and I can live in harmony

On a tradewind island
We can live in a cottage of bamboo
On a tradewind island
Is where our dreams will all come true

We can make music in the sand
Play ukuleles made by hand
You be my wife, I’ll be your man
On a tradewind island made for two

You can dance the hula and I’ll try too
Underneath the stars and the moon above
Then we’ll romance when the dance is through
On a tradewind island we’ll fall in love

On a tradewind island
Just me and you beneath blue skies
On a tradewind island
We’ll fall in love in paradise



Island Guitar Moon (Larry W. Jones 06/23/2004) (song #3141)

Out where the island guitars play
Out where the palm trees gently sway
Out there is where I wanna stay in tune
Under an island guitar moon

It was in Hawaii where you and I first met
Over in Hawaii, a place I can’t forget
We’ll return there for love’s music soon
Under an island guitar moon

Out where steel guitars and ukuleles play
Out where the flowers bloom each day
Out there is where love finds a way to croon
Under an island guitar moon

I remember strolling with you on my arm
Tropic stars were shining up above
I remember falling for all your charms
And I’m still dreaming those dreams of love

It was in Hawaii where you and I first met
Over in Hawaii, a place I can’t forget
We’ll return there for love’s music soon
Under an island guitar moon

We’ll return there for love’s music soon
Under an island guitar moon



Kailani (Larry W. Jones 06/23/2004) (song#3142)

When she goes strolling slowly by
All heads will turn and hearts will sigh
For Kailani (Kailani)

The tradewind pauses its gentle breeze
And whispers a name that’s sure to please
It’s Kailani (Kailani)

Kailani is an island girl from across the ocean blue
She can curl her arms in dance of the hula motion too
When she strolls across the sand with her gentle sway
Kailani will almost surely steal your heart away

Palm trees sigh and wave their fronds
Even the man in the moon responds
To Kailani (Kailani)

Kailani is the loveliest rose of the island shore
For no one knows where there’s beauty more
Kailani they all adore (Kailani)

Kailani is an island girl from across the ocean blue
She can curl her arms in dance of the hula motion too
When she strolls across the sand with her gentle sway
Kailani will almost surely steal your heart away

When she goes strolling slowly by
All heads will turn and hearts will sigh
For Kailani (Kailani)



With Yesterday’s Song (Larry W. Jones 06/23/2004) (song#3143)

Our love was like a summer song
The dream would last all summer long
You and I had so much fun
But that dream then went away
With yesterday’s song

We strolled hand in hand as one
In sand warmed by the island sun
But the song then came undone
In music that was yesterday
With yesterday’s song

We shared such tenderness together
We thought that it would last forever

I’ll return when summer comes along
Maybe we can find that summer song
We’ll stroll along as we did then
When love was yesterday
With yesterday’s song

We shared such tenderness together
We thought that it would last forever

I’ll return when summer comes along
Maybe we can find that summer song
We’ll stroll along as we did then
When love was yesterday
With yesterday’s song

With yesterday’s song
With yesterday’s song
With yesterday’s song



Island Memories (Larry W. Jones 06/24/2004) (song#3144)

Island memories just won’t let me go

I strolled over to Ala Moana park
It was twilight, just before the dark
But it didn’t have that same old spark
Island memories tore my heart apart

And when I went down to Waikiki
Down by the sea where we used to go
It seemed like not so long ago
That you and I had love to grow
But that dream was just a passing scene
Island memories just won’t let me go

If anyone happens to ask about my cries
I say it’s been awhile since I saw paradise
And these aren’t really tears falling from my eyes
They’re just island memories that I can’t deny
But as anyone can see, it’s really not a mystery
Island memories still have a hold on me

And these aren’t really tears falling from my eyes
They’re just island memories that I can’t deny
But as anyone can see, it’s really not a mystery
Island memories still have a hold on me



A Smarter Kalua Pig (Larry W. Jones 06/24/2004) (song#3145)

Kalua pig is smarter than the average pig
He’s not gonna be a marytr at the luau scene
He knows how to evade a luau gig
Kalua pig has a really smarter bean

Kalua pig never gets stuck in a rut
He’s clever enough not to be a porky butt
That’s what they do to pigs in a luau pit
But kalua pig won’t have a bit of it

Kalua pig is smarter than the average pig
When he’s chased, they go zag and he goes zig
He keeps his pork belly lean and not too big
That’s why he’s smarter than the average pig

He always roots around just before dark
His pursuits are picnic baskets in Ala Moana park
He munches on sandwiches, apples and figs
Kalua pig is smarter than the average pig

He munches on sandwiches, apples and figs
Kalua pig is smarter than the average pig



Good Old Island Tunes (Larry W. Jones 06/24/2004) (song#3146)

Songwriters and singers write and sing
Those same good old island tunes
About sweethearts that come to stroll
Under those same good old island moons
But here’s one thing that all the poets
Forget about or don’t even know

Sweetheart, you and I know why
The tropic summer sky is blue
And we know why birds of paradise
Sing a good old island melody or two
And why true love here grows
From the first Aloha hellos
Until the last Aloha ‘oe goodbyes
So, to that good old island romance
Let’s give it one more chance
You and I

Here’s one thing that all the poets
Forget about or don’t even know

Sweetheart, you and I know why
The tropic summer sky is blue
And we know why birds of paradise
Sing a good old island melody or two
And why true love here grows
From the first Aloha hellos
Until the last Aloha ‘oe goodbyes
So, to that good old island romance
Let’s give it one more chance
You and I



The Night Around Us (Larry W. Jones 06/24/2004) (song#3147)

Lovely you and the night around us
I’m glad the music of love has found us
It fills my heart with flaming desire
Warms my soul like a tiki fire

Lovely you and the night around us
I’m glad the music of love has found us
It thrills me so now that we are one
And when this tropic night of love is done
There’ll always be lovely you and the night around us
Now that lovely you and I are one

Until the pale moonlight
Says Aloha ‘oe to the tropic stars
Two hearts will be tuned just right
Like the music of throbbing guitars

Lovely you and the night around us
Will know that the music of love has found us
And when the morning daylight comes
There’ll always be lovely you and more nights around us
Now that lovely you and I are one



You’re The Island Girl (Larry W. Jones 06/24/2004) (song#3148)

You are adorable, young and shy
You’re the island girl whose eyes met mine
As you went strolling by
The only thing I know, and nothing more
You’re the island girl whose eyes met mine
As you went strolling by the shore

You’re the island girl whose voice I heard
Soft and happy and bright
As lovely as a paradise bird
Winging through the night

While you wore your fragrant flower lei
I saw your eyes look back at mine
I know I heard the tradewind say
You’re the island girl I’ll love some day

The only thing I know, and nothing more
You’re the island girl whose eyes met mine
As you went strolling by the shore

While you wore your fragrant flower lei
I saw your eyes look back at mine
I know I heard the tradewind say
You’re the island girl I’ll love some day



Only You And You Alone (Larry W. Jones 06/28/2004) (song#3149)

Only you and you alone
Are the topic of the dreams that I have known
The tropics seem to always play its part
In bringing Aloha to my lonely heart

Heaven on earth is this tropic zone
Where dreams of you have come true
This night of nights with you alone

Your polynesian eyes have told me
That only you and you alone
Have the arms I want to hold me
Your charms are now my very own

Only you and you alone
Are the topic of the dreams that I have known
The tropics seem to always play its part
In bringing Aloha to my lonely heart

Heaven on earth is this tropic zone
Where dreams of you have come true
This night of nights with you alone



Here In This Paradise (Larry W. Jones 06/28/2004) (song#3150)

Both of us know that love has found us
Tradewinds blow love songs around us
Why is my heart beating so
You and I know it’s the meeting
Of two hearts amorous for love

The stars are aglow above us
Island songs we know sing of us
A new dawn is breaking for us
Romance is waking around us
Taking us to love that is strong

Oh, this island song, it makes me cry
With happiness because of you only
I will sing of you until I die
For your love only will see I’m never lonely
Here in this paradise

A new dawn is breaking for us
Romance is waking around us
Taking us to love that is strong

Oh, this island song, it makes me cry
With happiness because of you only
I will sing of you until I die
For your love only will see I’m never lonely
Here in this paradise



In My Golden Dreams (Larry W. Jones 06/28/2004) (song#2151)

In my golden dreams
I asked the man in the moon
To spread some moonbeams of love
Around me some starlit night
In my golden dreams
I strolled the sand and soon
Ahead it seemed more than a dream thereof
When I found you that night

And when I first saw you
I came to realize
That dreams really can come true
When you’re in paradise

You were my guiding star
In my golden dreams
Now, that’s what you really are
Just more golden, it seems

I love your golden charms
When I’m holding you in my arms
You opened up love’s door
When you strolled by on the shore
In my golden dreams
Which are now much more than gold
It seems



You Make My Sun Shine (Larry W. Jones 06/28/2004) (song#3152)

When midnight comes, dear
Dreams come creeping
And I behold all of your charms
Then when day comes
Those dreams I’m keeping
As I run to hold you in my arms

You make my sun shine
Your heart has won mine
You bring me happiness where breezes play
My heart says, dear, Aloha I love you
You make my sun shine every day

E komo mai, dear
You’re always welcome
Here in my heart you are my song
You’ll never grieve, dear
For there’ll be no other
You make my sun shine all day long

You make my sun shine
Your heart has won mine
You bring me happiness where breezes play
My heart says, dear, Aloha I love you
You make my sun shine every day

You make my sun shine
Your heart has won mine
You bring me happiness where breezes play
My heart says, dear, Aloha I love you
You make my sun shine every day



Nobody’s Ku’u Ipo But Mine (Larry W. Jones 06/29/2004) (song#3153)

Come and stroll by my side, ku’u ipo
Place your warm hand here in mine
Please say that you will forever
Be nobody’s ku’u ipo but mine

Nobody’s ku’u ipo but mine, dear
Your love to me is divine
Please say that you will forever
Be nobody’s ku’u ipo but mine

You’re as sweet as flower leis are in springtime
Your island ways are fresh as dew on the rose
I could never want another girl to be mine
You’re the only one for whom my heart beats so

E hele mai ana au ku’u ipo
I am coming, sweetheart, with a ring
Ko maua la male ‘ana ku’u ipo
Our wedding day, happiness will bring

Hele mai, hele mai, ku’u ipo
Come and let us leave past cares behind
Please say that you will forever
Be nobody’s ku’u ipo but mine



Brand New Sunshine (Larry W. Jones 06/29/2004) (song#3154)

You are the brand new sunshine on my isle
Here in old Lahaina town
You are the rainbow in my paradise
And in my heart you wear a crown

I feel a new love just now forming
Though I have loved you through the years
Whether the weather be calm or storming
Your love will keep away all tears

You are the brand new sunshine on my isle
Here in old Lahaina town
You are the rainbow in my paradise
And in my heart you wear a crown

Before you came I was so lonely
There was no love for me around
You are the brand new sunshine on my isle
Here in old Lahaina town

You are the brand new sunshine on my isle
Here in old Lahaina town



It’s Been Awhile (Larry W. Jones 06/29/2004) (song#3155)

You’re the island girl I dreamed of
Tradewinds whispered love from the start
You gave to me a smile here on the isle
And it’s been awhile since I’ve seen my heart

It isn’t just this island in the sea
It isn’t just your polynesian eyes
It’s how my heart beats when you stroll with me
Though I lost my heart somewhere in paradise

You’re the island girl I dreamed of
Tradewinds whispered love from the start
You gave to me a smile here on the isle
And it’s been awhile since I’ve seen my heart

It isn’t just your long black shiny hair
Or the fragrant flower lei you wear
I guess it’s the way I feel blessed each day
When I see that you really care

Sometimes it’s hard tofind words to say
Just how much I love you here on the isle
But I know you won’t mind if I just say
Aloha, I love to see you smile

You’re the island girl I dreamed of
Tradewinds whispered love from the start
You gave to me a smile here on the isle
And it’s been awhile since I’ve seen my heart
It’s been awhile since I’ve seen my heart



You Dwell In My Heart (Larry W. Jones 06/29/2004) (song#3156)

You dwell in my heart
And I’m sure you will forever
Ever since this love got its start
With that same lure of island love
From long ago

We were gathering moonbeams
While a thousand steel guitars were playing
Every island in the streams
Could hear the strings of our love song
And when I said Aloha, I love you
It’s true, my heart could hear them too

I’m sure you remember
It was just a moment in time
But that beginning ember
Meant that you’ll be forever mine

Now we have all those moonbeams
And a thousand steel guitars still are playing
Sweetheart, you were always the theme
And the words that the song was saying

You dwell in my heart
And I’m sure you will forever
Ever since this love got its start
With that same lure of island love
From long ago

I’m sure you remember
It was just a moment in time
But that beginning ember
Meant that you’ll be forever mine



The New Love (Larry W. Jones 06/29/2004) (song#3157)

If birds of paradise sang like you do
They would sing sweeter songs than they do
And they would be songs here by the sea
Of the new love you brought to me

And if the man in the moon
Smiled at me the way you do
I wouldn’t want him to stop too soon
Because it’s so plain to see
A smile is meant to please
Like this new love does for me

I know that I’m just a common man
And you look like an island queen
And even though I don’t fully understand
I know my love has no in between
So, if you’ll be my island maid
I’ll forever be your island man

I’ll work in the tropic sun the long day through
While the topic of my thoughts will be of you
And then too, I’ll hurry home to you
To our little cottage by the sea
For the new love you brought to me



I Knew Just What To Say (Larry W. Jones 06/29/2004) (song#3158)

Even if you weren’t so sweet
I would have fallen for you anyway
Now that my heart is at your feet
I’ll never ever want to go away

When the time finally came
For me to look for you
I knew I’d find my tiki flame
Somewhere in Hawaii blue

You strolled by on a quiet day
Away from life’s busy pace
It was there down by the bay
When I looked upon your lovely face

And when I saw your gentle island ways
I knew just what to say
Even if you weren’t so sweet
I would have fallen for you anyway

Now that my heart is at your feet
I’ll never ever want to go away

And when I saw your gentle island ways
I knew just what to say
Even if you weren’t so sweet
I would have fallen for you anyway



You Don’t Have To Be A Lady To Cry (Larry W. Jones 06/29/2004) (song#3159)


You don’t have to be a lady to cry
A man knows when love has gone wrong
You don’t have to be a lady to cry
A man knows when love is not as strong

When you strolled away and left me blue
My rainbow of gold turned that way too
I knew from the start that you’d disappear
And now my empty heart is full of tears

And these raindrops in my eyes
Now fall as tears in paradise
There’s no reason for a man to lie
You don’t have to be a lady to cry

When you strolled away and left me blue
My rainbow of gold turned that way too
I knew from the start that you’d disappear
And now my empty heart is full of tears

And these raindrops in my eyes
Now fall as tears in paradise
You don’t have to be a lady to cry
No, you don’t have to be a lady to cry



If Only You Knew Me (Larry W. Jones 06/30/2004) (song#3160)

You stroll by on golden sand
And then you say Aloha
I’m just a breathless island man
Ha’ina mai ia kapuana la
This is the end of my dreams, you see
I can hear sweet Maui chimes
But you can’t hear them as near as mine
You look but you see right through me
If only you knew me

For you’ll never see dreams that were never meant to be
And you’ll never see that I’ll love you endlessly
To you I’m just another island man
Whose footprints disappear in island sand
Oh, so empty my heart will always be
If only you knew me

I guess I always knew
My arms would have to wait for love
And now that my dreams are blue
It seems that my heart is the same
I was too timid, so I, never called out your name
And I let my chance for romance die

You stroll by on golden sand
And then you say Aloha ‘oe
I watch you stroll away with another man
Someone, a friend he used to be
I can hear sweet Maui chimes
But you can’t hear them as near as mine
You look but you see right through me
If only you knew me



Heavenly Hula Eyes (Larry W. Jones 06/30/2004) (song#3161)

Heavenly hula eyes
So lovely in paradise
You hypnotized my heart
I realized it from the start
Under these tropic skies
Fires of love that never dies
Will burn both night and day
As you steal my heart away

There are many lovely bays
Heavenly in many ways
As if angels draped their leis
Leis of paradise
And there are many lovely ways
To tell you how much I prize
You heavenly hula eyes

Underneath the soft moonlight
Your eyes look heavenly tonight
I can hear soft music play
It carries my heart away
And it will for all of time
As I hold your hand in mine
I hear a song of sweet reprise
Heavenly hula eyes

In this balmy island air
I smell the fragrant flower in your hair
It’s so beyond compare
This song is meant to say
I’ll love you every day until I die
And until then I’ll always prize
You heavenly hula eyes



The Island Says Hello (Larry W. Jones 06/30/2004) (song#3162)

The island says hello in the morning
When that tropic sun says Aloha
I know it’s come to spend another sunny day
The island says hello with the bluebirds
And with the flowers growing by the bay

And when I see the setting tropic sun
I know another island day is done
And I hurry home to you in paradise
When the twilight comes to say Aloha
The island says hello when you kiss me
And I look into your loving polynesian eyes

And when I see the setting tropic sun
I know another island day is done
And I hurry home to you in paradise
When the twilight comes to say Aloha
The island says hello when you kiss me
And I look into your loving polynesian eyes

The island says hello when you kiss me
And I look into your loving polynesian eyes



Home In Old Lahaina Town (Larry W. Jones 06/30/2004) (song#3163)

I don’t have a worry in this tropic air
There’s nothing here that gets me down
I don’t have the money of a millionaire
But I’ve got my home in old Lahaina town

When all my neighbors greet me with Aloha
I feel like King Kamehameha with his crown
I don’t have a mansion, just a cottage small
It’s my island home in old Lahaina town

Once I travelled to the mainland
Where I spent too many days with a frown
Well, I never did like braggin’
And I don’t mean to put others down
But that stuffy mainland keeps me gaggin’
So, I’ll just stay home in old Lahaina town

There’s a sweet someone here on Maui
And someday she’ll wear a wedding gown
We’ll raise an island family with Maui wowee
In our little cottage home in old Lahaina town



Miles Of Isles Of Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 06/30/2004) (song#3164)

I was born in southeast Texas
Close to that Louisiana line
Raised on steak and taters
And peach pie from dear ‘ol mom of mine
I got a ramblin’ notion
Said adios to my maw and paw
Crossed that wide pacific ocean
And this is what I saw

I saw miles of isles of Hawaii
And all the stars in paradise
I saw miles of isles of Hawaii
And I’m gonna stay here til I die

I paddled over to Waikiki
To see the sun set in the west
Ask anybody that you see
And he’ll say Hawaii no ka oi
Which means Hawaii is the best
There I met an island beauty
She introduced me to her maw and paw
I looked into her polynesian eyes
For that was my duty
And this is what I saw

I saw miles of isles of Hawaii
And all the stars in paradise
I saw miles of isles of Hawaii
And I’m gonna love her til I die



You Rescued Me (Larry W. Jones 06/30/2004) (song#3165)

I shed a tear, you kissed it away
My path wasn’t clear, you showed me the way
I was alone, like an island in the stream
You came along and you shared my dream
You rescued me
You rescued me

You gave me your hand, so I could stroll again
In island sand, you made me whole again
Now my life has vitality
You were a drean, now you’re reality
You rescued me
You rescued me

And now I know, what makes dreams come true
Where breezes blow, it seems that it was only you
And I’ll never go away, never ever stray
From Hawaii blue
As long as you are here
I’ll hold you dear

You held me in your arms, and sheltered me from harm
My ship was lost at night, but you showed me the light
I passed through the reef, like a rescued ark
At last I don’t have grief
You called me ku’u ipo sweetheart

You gave my life a song, to sing a tune again
Now that you’ve come along, my blue moon is gold again
Now my life has vitality
You were a drean, now you’re reality
You rescued me
You rescued me



My Dream Of Dreams (Larry W. Jones 06/30/2004) (song#3166)

You oughta be in an island dream
From across a polynesian sea
You outta be in an island dream
Oh, what a dream you would be

Your voice would thrill the tourists
Your lovely face they would adore
Whether they be kings or the poorest
They’d love to dream of your shore

And if you charmed them all
Like I am when we’re alone
They would all hear islands call
When they dream of a tropic zone

You oughta be a tropic moon
With lots of golden beams
You oughta be the month of June
My dream of dreams

You oughta be a tropic moon
With lots of golden beams
You oughta be the month of June
My dream of dreams



I Lose Again (Larry W. Jones 06/30/2004) (song#3167)

The story’s told, in old Lahaina town
That you were seen out strollin’ round
I’ve got hold of those blues again
Tradewinds are cold, I lose again

My eyes are fine, but I didn’t see
Your lips of wine weren’t just for me
My dream come true has left the scene
Our love is through, I lose again

I feel so sad for the new love you’ve found
He’ll feel so bad when you put him down
You’ll break his heart with your cheatin’ game
And some day soon he’ll start to lose again

You have no love anyone can claim
You take away love’s tiki flame
But I love you still, just the same
I guess I always will, I lose again



You Would Be So Sweet (Larry W. Jones 06/30/2004) (song#3168)

You would be so sweet
To come back home to
It would be so neat
To roam back to you

You would be so sweet
Warm as a tiki fire
It would be a treat
For you to fill my desire

While the tradewind breeze
Sang a soft lullaby
You would hold the keys
To my paradise

Under the stars above
You would be so sweet
And under a moon of love
It would be a treat
To come back to you
Back to your sweet love

While the tradewind breeze
Sang a soft lullaby
You would hold the keys
To my paradise

You would be so sweet
It would be a treat
To come back to you
Back to your sweet love



Like The Tropic Sun (Larry W. Jones 06/30/2004) (song#3169)


You’re like the tropic sun
So warm and beautiful
And I love you so
You’re the only one
My heart strings feel your pull
And love’s tender glow

So, fill this empty heart of mine
Not just part of the time
But forever, endlessly
And then you’ll be the only one
Under the tropic sun
The only one for me

You’re like the tropic sun
You warm me with your love
Where breezes blow
You’re the only one
The only one I’m dreaming of
Where time is slow

So, take this heart I give to you
For you’re the only one I live for too
And love me endlessly
And then you’ll be the only one
Under the tropic sun
The only one for me



Young In Island Love (Larry W. Jones 07/01/2004) (song#3170)

Young in island love
Through laughter and tears together
Young in island love

That’s the way we’ll stay in love
The way we are today
We’ll stay young in island love
Forever and a day

With this ring around your finger
It will bring more wealth that gold
Memories on this shore will linger
Even when we’re growing old
For we’ll be young in island love

As we stroll through island life
We will see sweet tuberoses bloom
As island man and island wife
We’ll see the beauty, not the gloom

And every little dream will find us
In a little cottage by the bay
And every day dreams will remind us
For young in island love we’ll stay

That’s the way we’ll stay in love
The way we are today
We’ll stay young in island love
Forever and a day



Fresher Than Springtime (Larry W. Jones 07/01/2004) (song#3171)

Fresher than springtime you are
Softer than Maui chimes upon the sea
Warmer than tropic winds you are
As your gentle lips when you’re kissing me

Happy as laughter you are
Sweet as music from ukuleles
Companion and lover
Forever there’ll be no other
While you are with me

When I behold your island charms
Wrapped in my open arms as they are
My heart is open too, it belongs to you
As we view all the tropic stars

Fresher than springtime you are
Softer than Maui chimes upon the sea
Warmer than tropic winds you are
As your gentle lips when you’re kissing me

Happy as laughter you are
Sweet as music from ukuleles
Companion and lover
Forever there’ll be no other
While you are with me



Your Eyes Of Love (Larry W. Jones 07/01/2004) (song#3172)

When I saw your eyes of love
Your beautiful eyes of love
I saw that the light of love
Had such tender feeling

And your eyes thrilled me too
With light of love they filled me too
And now I’m dreaming too
Beautiful dreams of you

There’s no need to talk about it
I’ll never leave, no doubt about it
When I saw your eyes
I wanted to shout about it
Throughout paradise

And your eyes thrilled me too
With light of love they filled me too
And now I’m dreaming too
Beautiful dreams of you

There’s no need to talk about it
I’ll never leave, no doubt about it
When I saw your eyes
I wanted to shout about it
Throughout paradise



You’re My All In All (Larry W. Jones 07/01/2004) (song#3173)

You’re my all in all
Underneath the tropic sun
When all the islands call
You’re their topic number one

You’re the dreams that call
With the sweetest personality
All in all, you’re my life’s reality

You’re my all in all
In every word and deed
I knew my heart would fall
Cause you’re all I need

If I had to run or walk or crawl
I would do them all
Because you’re my all in all
You’re my all in all

You’re the dreams that call
With the sweetest personality
All in all, you’re my life’s reality

If I had to run or walk or crawl
I would do them all
Because you’re my all in all
You’re my all in all



I Was Nobody (Larry W. Jones 07/01/2004) (song#3174)

I was nobody
Until somebody loved me
I was nobody
Until somebody cared

I never was a king, and I never did possess
Much of anything in this world
And none of its gold
I knew that wouldn’t bring me happiness
When I’m growing old

But this old world is not the same
Somebody changed it
Under the tropic stars that shine above
I was nobody
Until somebody loved me
And I found myself an island girl to love

I never was a king, and I never did possess
Much of anything in this world
And none of its gold
I knew that wouldn’t bring me happiness
When I’m growing old

But this old world is not the same
Somebody changed it
Under the tropic stars that shine above
I was nobody
Until somebody loved me
And I found myself an island girl to love



You On My Mind (Larry W. Jones 07/01/2004) (song#3175)

Those steel guitars are playin’
Another sweet island song
Here on the shore I keep sayin’
Time to stroll on back home
But then, why even start
I know what I’ll find
An empty room, a broken heart
And you on my mind

At the luau they’re dancin’
It all sounds like fun
But I’m down here thinkin’
Bout that island girl on the run
Well, I thought I could play it smart
And forget about you in time
But it’s an empty room, a broken heart
And you on my mind

My whole world is shrinkin’
Nobody hears my cries
I think the island is sinkin’
A disappearin’ paradise
My island dream is off the chart
With no other love to find
In an empty room, a broken heart
And you on my mind



My Ku’u Ipo (Larry W. Jones 07/01/2004) (song#3176)

When I saw you on Olohana street
Everything about you looked so sweet
You sure were the fairer gender
You made my heart surrender
My heart is yours, now and forever

You’re the island girl I long to kiss
You’re the sweetest island miss
You’re the island girl I’m dreamin’ of
My ku’u ipo, you’re the one I love

I will always keep you in my heart
There’s no way we’ll ever part
I’ll never leave you, no
As long as tradewinds blow
My ku’u ipo, I love you so

Sweetheart, you know that I adore you
Cause here on the shore you made me feel this way
And ever since I met you, I know I won’t forget you
Here on this isle where breezes play

You’re the island girl I long to kiss
You’re the sweetest island miss
You’re the island girl I’m dreamin’ of
My ku’u ipo, you’re the one I love

I will always keep you in my heart
There’s no way we’ll ever part
I’ll never leave you, no
As long as tradewinds blow
My ku’u ipo, I love you so



I Love Old Lahaina (Larry W. Jones 07/01/2004) (song#3177)

There’s a full moon over Maui
And I know it’s shinin’ on you
Nights are gettin’ old in the state of Texas
When I’m not there with you
I remember paradise and an island daughter
Over in Hawaii blue
Losin’ you left a lonely Texas cowboy
With nothin’ but a dream or two
Sundown came in old Lahaina town
Back when my dreams came true
You’re the reason I love old Lahaina
And I’m still lovin’ you
And I’m still lovin’ you
Over there the tropic nights
Are filled with a golden moon
And I’m here feelin’ blue
Tradewinds blow across west Maui mountains
And all the way to Waikiki too
All the island guitars in Maui county
Are playing island songs for you
That big Dallas freeway
Can make a Texas cowboy blue
You’re the reason I love old Lahaina
You’re the reason I love old Lahaina
And I’m still lovin’ you
I remember island flowers and they’re still a factor
In my lovin’ you today
But I need to be at where you’re at
Instead of so far away
You’re the reason I love old Lahaina
You’re the reason I love old Lahaina
And I’m still lovin’ you
And I’m still lovin’ you



The Same Island Girl (Larry W. Jones 07/01/2004) (song#3178)

It’s been many fine years since we were married
Like the best of wine from a vintage press
We’ve strolled side by side and never tarried
Here on the island I guess we’ve been blessed

I recall the day I placed the ring on your finger
Young island love was a dream, I was told
But through the years it seems here to linger
And your love has been worth more than gold

You’re the same island girl, I admit
You haven’t really changed a bit
You’re still the sweetest island girl I’ve seen
The same as you were at sweet sixteen

You’ve been the same island girl, it seems
The one who first gave my heart a whirl in dreams

I still love you as never before
And what’s more, it’s a lot stronger
Here on this peaceful island shore
My love for you will last a lot longer
For the same island girl



Mine And Yours (Larry W. Jones 07/01/2004) (song#3179)

Island love can come from any which way
It finds a couple and it sets their hearts ablaze
I can feel it down in my heart today
Here among the palms where the tradewind plays

The tropic stars that shine are mine and yours
Rainbows that look so fine are mine and yours
Island songs in springtime, lullabys in fall
Love is everywhere when the islands call

The tropic moon above is mine and yours
Nights of island love are mine and yours
Dreams that do come true on these tropic shores
Seems to be mine and yours

The tropic stars that shine are mine and yours
Rainbows that look so fine are mine and yours
Island songs in springtime, lullabys in fall
Love is everywhere when the islands call

The tropic moon above is mine and yours
Nights of island love are mine and yours
Dreams that do come true on these tropic shores
Seems to be mine and yours



You Haven’t Changed (Larry W. Jones 07/01/2004) (song#3180)

You haven’t changed
The sparkle in your eye is the same
Your smile is as welcome as the dawn
You’ve been in my heart all along
No, you haven’t changed

You haven’t changed
Your kisses are still like a flame
You don’t need to be rearranged
In this island sand, I understand
You haven’t changed

You haven’t forgotten that the word Aloha
Is in the memories of love we have shared
You haven’t ignored all the stars above you
And strolls in the moonlight showed you cared
No, you haven’t changed

You’re still the island angel that I knew
When this love of ours was still brand new
Our love won’t be over when life is through
Love through eternity I’ve arranged
Cause you haven’t changed

You’re still the island angel that I knew
When this love of ours was still brand new
Our love won’t be over when life is through
Love through eternity I’ve arranged
Cause you haven’t changed



Your Sweet Island Love (Larry W. Jones 07/02/2004) (song#3181)

You’ve got two lips sweet as wine
I’ve got one heart with you in mind
Love, sweet island love
You’ve got sweet island love

You’ve got more charms than you can use
I’ve got one heart that’s full of blues
Love, sweet island love
You’ve got sweet island love

You’ve got love, love
Sweet island love
You’ve got love, love
From heaven above

You’ve got two eyes from paradise
I’ve only one love, you realize
Love, sweet island love
You’ve got sweet island love

You’ve got love, love
Sweet island love
Two lips, two eyes and too many charms
Oops, forgot to mention your arms
I’ve got one thought of
Your sweet island love



To Keep You Company (Larry W. Jones 07/02/2004) (song#3182)

Little tears are falling from your eyes
Your smile on the isle is just disguise
But you don’t have to cry in paradise
Cause I’ll be there in the tradewind air
To keep you company

Don’t suppose that no one knows your sorrow
For that same emptiness I have felt
Let me be your island love here and tomorrow
And I’ll erase all that life has dealt

Just as if snows of Mauna Kea
Were to fall upon the sun
Your emptiness will melt away
When I’m your only one
Cause I’ll be there in the tradewind air
To keep you company
I’ll place a flower in your hair
And I’ll love you endlessly

Oh yes, ku’u ipo, darling
You’ll be the only love for me
In island sand, I’ll take your hand
And make you understand
That I’ll be there in the tradewind air
To keep you company

We’ll find a little cottage to make our island home
And when the morning comes, you’ll wake up
But you won’t be alone
For when we’re married, I’ll be closeup
To keep you nice and warm
I’ll be right here on this island in the sea
To keep you company



Where I Want You (Larry W. Jones 07/02/2004) (song#3183)

I’ve got you where I want you
And I feel so satisfied
I’ve got you where I want you
You couldn’t escape if you tried

One little glance and island romance
And a million stars in paradise
My heart didn’t stand a chance
On a Hawaiian roller coaster ride
I’ve got you where I want you
You couldn’t escape if you tried

You said you wouldn’t surrender
But I knew very well I would
You said my hopes were pretty slender
I didn’t know where I stood

But now I don’t need an alibi
Anyone can see if they try
I’ve got you where I want you
You couldn’t escape if you tried

Yeah, I’ve got you where I want you
Here on this island in the sea
And the thing that makes my dreams come true
Is that you said it’s where you want to be



The Island Girl I Like (Larry W. Jones 07/02/2004) (song#3184)

Your smile makes darkness take to flight
Paradise makes your eyes look right
The flower in your hair is outta sight
You’re the island girl I like

You say Aloha which means I love you
Your hula sway is from Hawaii blue
I wanna stick with you just like glue
You’re the island girl I like

Your ruby lips sure know how to kiss
And when we stroll hand in hand, it’s bliss
You make a tropic island come to life
You’re as smooth as butter on a butter knife
You’re the island girl I’m gonna make my wife
You’re the island girl I like

You say Aloha which means I love you
Your hula sway is from Hawaii blue
I wanna stick with you just like glue
You’re the island girl I like

You make a tropic island come to life
You’re as smooth as butter on a butter knife
You’re the island girl I’m gonna make my wife
You’re the island girl I like



Wonderful Island (Larry W. Jones 07/02/2004) (song#3185)

Zip a dee doo dah
Zip a dee ay
Here in paradise, it’s a wonderful day
Zip a dee doo dah
Zip a dee ay

Time is slow here, it never flies
That’s the way it is in paradise
I see a rainbow over the bay
There’s tropical sunshine
Headin’ my way
Zip a dee doo dah
Zip a dee ay

Bird of paradise on my shoulder
When I see my love, I’m gonna hold ‘er
Zip a dee doo dah
Zip a dee ay
Dreams come true here, naturally
My dream of you dear, is satisfactually
Zip a dee doo dah
Zip a dee ay
Wonderful island, wonderful day

I see a rainbow over the bay
There’s tropical sunshine
Headin’ my way
Zip a dee doo dah
Zip a dee ay



Miss With Polynesian Eyes (Larry W. Jones 07/02/2004) (song#3186)

I know that I’ll never forget you
My love for you is one that never dies
I know I won’t forget your kisses too
My island miss with polynesian eyes

I’m dreaming of you here in Amarillo
With visions of you over there in paradise
Every night there’s tears on my pillow
Incited dear, by lovely polynesian eyes

When the day is done and earth keeps turnin’
I know you’re sleeping over there until sunrise
While I lie here awake with my heart burnin’
Longing for to see your polynesian eyes

Some days instead of walking, I’m just crawling
With a broken heart that I just can’t disguise
And every night I can hear the tradewinds calling
Return to me, my island love with polynesian eyes



Guitar Strings Of My Heart (Larry W. Jones 07/06/2004) (song#3187)

I never did know how to carry a tune
Never did know from the very start
But that was before you came strolling along
And strummed the guitar strings of my heart

When you first smiled at me here by the sea
It was like an unrehearsed melody, an island symphony
And ring went the guitar strings of my heart

Just like in the islands in the spring
Birds of paradise were heard to gaily sing
And it occured to me that all the world, you see
Was in perfect harmony
When ring went the guitar strings of my heart

In your polynesian eyes there was no disguise
So, what else can I do today
But say Aloha, I love you today

As days go by, I’ll remember why
Paradise will never depart
With your hand in mine
And your lips of wine
You strummed the guitar strings of my heart



We’re Both In Island Love (Larry W. Jones 07/06/2004) (song#3188)

Well, if you’re in love with me
Like I’m in love with you
Then we’re both in island love
And if it’s happiness you see
Like I see here by the sea
Then we’re both in island love

And if you’re dreaming of me
Like I’m dreaming of you
Then I know what your dreams are of
And if it seems you love me too
Then I’ll dream a dream for two
An island scheme for island love

When you stroll around the island
You turn all the tiki flames to fire alarms
I want to be your island man
So I can always hold you in my arms

Well, if you’re in love with me
Like I’m in love with you
Then we’re both in island love
And if it’s happiness you see
Like I see here by the sea
Then we’re both in island love



Wailua River (Larry W. Jones 07/06/2004) (song#3189)

I’m goin’ back to that Wailua river
On the island of Kauai
Gonna stroll where I stood
Back in my childhood
I’m going back to Kauai isle

Spent my life a carefree sailor
Just an ocean gypsy sailin’ man
But I can’t find peace bein’ a whaler
With no warm island or island sand

Back on Kauai is my family
Where the Wailua river meets the sea
I don’t wanna die under arctic skies
Back to my garden isle paradise I’ll be

I’ll drink rum and my Kona coffee
Sailin’ south as fast as I can
I’m goin’ back to that Wailua river
Spend the rest of my life a happy island man

Spent my life a carefree sailor
Just an ocean gypsy sailin’ man
But I can’t find peace bein’ a whaler
With no warm island or island sand

I’ll drink rum and my Kona coffee
Sailin’ south as fast as I can
I’m goin’ back to that Wailua river
Spend the rest of my life a happy island man



Beautiful Hawaiian Lei (Larry W. Jones 07/06/2004) (song#3190)

I went out a-strollin’ on the isle one day
To pick some island flowers for a flower lei
And every flower that I picked seemed to impart
Something special for someone dear to my heart

Beautiful flower lei that I’m weaving today
Somehow the colors say they’ll never fade away
Every island flower has a meaning clear to me
In every island flower, the power of memories

A bird of paradise for my ku’u ipo sweetheart
A kukui for my dear old island dad
A mokihana for a friend I’ve had from the start
And a tuberose for mama, best friend I’ve ever had

Plumerias are for my kupuna wahini grandma
Red ginger for kupuna kane grandpa too
As I weave them all together
They form a beautiful Hawaiian lei
Golden memories will last through time and weather
In this beautiful Hawaiian flower lei
Golden memories that will never fade away



Wahini Of My Dreams (Larry W. Jones 07/06/2004) (song#3191)

One day I met the wahini of my dreams
Polynesian eyes pretty as any seen
Long black hair flowing down behind
I fell for her like someone seeing blind

She was in old Lahaina town
Tiki lights and music all around
I looked into here eyes
And she looked into mine
I was in a trance hearing Maui chimes

But now all I do is cry
I lost that girl somewhere in paradise
And I’m blue in Hawaii blue
I should have known
She was a dream too good to be true

I went back to see if her light was on
But the place was dark and she was gone
The wahini of my dreams wasn’t there anymore
Now I’m cryin’ on this island shore

Now all I have is an empty picture frame
Never got her picture, just her name
She strolled away somewhere I’ll never find
Oh, the wahini of my dreams
Is out of sight but always on my mind



Before I Found You (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2004) (song#3192)

Well, I thought I’d seen island girls so fine
But that was before I found you
Never thought I’d wanna call just one mine
But that was before I found you

I thought I’d seen all the stars above
Sailing over the oceans blue
But island guitars played a song of love
That was after I found you

I thought I’d always ramble the seas
But that was before I found you
Never thought anyone could ever hold me
But that was before I found you

I thought I’d seen all the stars above
Sailing over the oceans blue
But island guitars played a song of love
That was after I found you

I’ve heard a man reaps what he sows
But sweetheart, I hope it’s not true
Cause once I planned to live on the mainland
Where the tradewind never blows
But that was before I found you



Bars Of Island Love (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2004) (song#3193)

Behind these bars of island love, dear
For evermore is where I’ll be
For I hear you love another
And no other love can set me free

Sweet memories will linger in my heart
Of island days when you were mine
These bars of island love keeps us apart
I’m in love’s prison servin’ time

Love for you I can’t rearrange, dear
You’re the only love I’ll ever know
I’ll be content with memories and tears
Here where island breezes blow

Behind these bars of island love, dear
For evermore is where I’ll be
For I hear you love another
And no other love can set me free

Just remember these words I’ve spoken
When you’re under the stars above
All of my vows will be unbroken
Behind these bars of island love



When It’s Luau Time (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2004) (song#3194)

Well, there’s a big luau in Lahaina town
A big luau, gonna hula dance around

A big plate of rice and fish and poi
A big luau for an island boy

A glass of kalua and a glass of wine
Gonna have a party when it’s luau time

Put the big pig in the umu pit
Eat big kalua pig later out of it

See the pretty wahini strollin’ in the sand
Waves of love rollin’ for an island man

A big plate of rice and fish and poi
A big luau for an island boy

A glass of kalua and a glass of wine
Gonna have a party when it’s luau time



Kale Kana Kapono (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2004) (song#3195)

Well, can you hear the whistle
Of the wind a-blowin’ through the sails
Comin’ from the port and then the starboard side
I’ve been lookin’ for my island girl
But everywhere I’ve looked, it fails
Gonna keep lookin’ til I’m satisfied

Aloha, where are you, Leilani
Why do you hide from me this way
Aloha, where are you, Leilani
I’ll turn the tide for you some day

I’m the best harpooner on any whalin’ ship today
Kale Kana Kapono is my name
Sometimes I think I’m workin’ my life away
But it’s for sweet Leilani all the same

Now, I’ve sailed to lots of places
Been to lots of islands in the sea
Sometimes I think this ocean or the face I love
One or both is gonna be the death of me



At Hanalei Bay (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2004) (song#3196)

I’ve had sweet dreams of you
Amid moon beams of blue at Hanalei bay
Amid moon beams of blue at Hanalei bay

We were alone, me and you
The stars were bright above Hanalei bay
The stars were bright above Hanalei bay

Now I fear there are tears falling
I heard you calling from Hanalei bay
I heard you calling from Hanalei bay

You sang our love song with emotion
From over the ocean at Hanalei bay
From over the ocean at Hanalei bay

The dreams that we once knew
Were then brand new at Hanalei bay
Were then brand new at Hanalei bay

Dreams of you and me there by the sea
While tradewinds whispered Aloha I love you
At Hanalei bay
While tradewinds whispered Aloha I love you
At Hanalei bay



Looking For Love Again (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2004) (song#3197)

Where the tradewinds blow I see her
Brown eyes looking for love again
Our last Aloha ‘oe would infer
That we’d never see each other again

Island love in deep December
Has only an ember that remains
Over the ocean I remember
Brown eyes looking for love again

How I wish we could stroll together
Hand in hand again in island sand
And I would no more remember
Brown eyes looking for love again

Island love in deep December
Has only an ember that remains
Over the ocean I remember
Brown eyes looking for love again

How I wish we could stroll together
Hand in hand again in island sand
And I would no more remember
Brown eyes looking for love again



Leis Of Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2004) (song#3198)

I travelled to the big island to see Mauna Kea
In Hilo I met a wahini
Who gave me a lei lehua ohia

I travelled to Moloka’i
To see the Kalaupapa scene
In Maunaloa I met a wahini
Who gave me a Kukui blossom green

I travelled to Maui isle to see the valleys there
In old Lahaina I met a wahini
Who gave me a Lokelani from her hair

I travelled to Niihau to see Mt Paniau well
In Puuwai I met a wahini
Who gave me a lei of Pupu shell

I travelled to Lanai to see Manele bay
At Kaunolu I met a wahini
Who gave me a kaunaoa lei

I travelled to Kahoolawe to see Pu’u Koa’e
At Papaka I met a wahini
Who gave me a Hinahina lei

I travelled to Kauai to see the garden isle
At Poipu I met a wahini
Who gave me a mokihana lei

I returned to Oahu to see the Honolulu bay
At Waikiki I met a wahini
Who gave me an Ilima Aloha lei



Born To Love (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2004) (song#3199)

Born to love, I’m through with tears and pain
Every dream has come true in love again
True love I’ve found here in Hawaii blue
Born to love, the way I’m loving you

Born to love, it’s in the tradewind air
Stars above know that true love is there
The love we’ve known is still as fresh as dew
Born to love, the way I’m loving you

Born to love, emptiness is gone
In your face I see a new born dawn
You’re my happiness in Hawaii blue
Born to love, the way I’m loving you

Born to love, I’m through with tears and pain
Every dream has come true in love again
True love I’ve found here in Hawaii blue
Born to love, the way I’m loving you
Born to love, the way I’m loving you



Thirty Two Hundred (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2004) (song#3200)

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

If you ever ask me how long for you my love will be
Thirty two hundred lifetimes, then we would wait and see
If I could do it over, not a thing would I ever change
I could sing you island songs of love that I’ve arranged

If you ever ask me how deep for you my love will be
I can only tell you that my love is deeper than the sea
Thirty two hundred fathoms down lives cousin Davy Jones
Says I’ve got more songs to write about these tropic zones

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