Heavenly Hula Hands (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2004) (song#3201)

Let me tell you of Hawaiian hula
And the elegance of this island dance
Heavenly hands spell out old talk stories
Of island life and sweet romance

Heavenly hula hands
Like two birds of paradise
Flying over golden sands
And under sun kissed skies
Heavenly hula hands

Light brown is the tone
So soft and supple
Nothing’s as lovely in my island home
As a couple of
Heavenly hula hands

With your heavenly hula hands in mine
We don’t need words to say
That Aloha is island love divine
That will last forever and a day

Your heavenly hula hands
Are all I need to understand
For the love of all Hawaii
Is in your heavenly hula hands



The Island Mail (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2004) (song#3202)

Well, see that Matson line sailer
Boy, she’s right on time
That old ship is wearin’ out her sails, sails, sails
Headin’ for the harbor, still in her prime
Bringin’ home the island mail

Eighteen knots an hour
She was built for speed
Listen to her foghorn wail, wail, wail
She’ll be here on the hour, yes indeed
Bringin’ home the island mail

See the captain strollin’
Fast across the deck
Callin’ out the orders by the rail, rail, rail
He’s got that ship a-rollin’, sails trimmed for tack
Bringin’ home the island mail

Rockin’ and a-rollin’
Tradewinds blowin’ from the beam
Sail her through the reef without fail, fail, fail
Servin’ all the islands and all there is between
Bringin’ home the island mail



An Isle Refrain (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2004) (song#3203)

How could I be anything but happy
I’ll never be blue anymore
Your sweet love and all your kisses
Are dreams come true on this shore

I’d swim across the deepest ocean
Just to be here in this sand
To hold your hand with deep emotion
And love you just the best I can

I knew I saw an island angel
When first I looked into your eyes
I just had to have you for my love
Here in this island paradise

Here the sun shines through the rain
And rainbows form when you’re around
I hear the sounds of an isle refrain
When we stroll around Lahaina town

I’d swim across the deepest ocean
Just to be here in this sand
To hold your hand with deep emotion
And love you just the best I can

Here the sun shines through the rain
And rainbows form when you’re around
I hear the sounds of an isle refrain
When we stroll around Lahaina town

I hear the sounds of an isle refrain
When we stroll around Lahaina town



A Fair Island Girl (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2004) (song#3204)

I traveled to Hawaii to find a fair island girl
She had polynesian eyes of darkest brown
Her long black hair in the tradewind curled
And she was the sweetest island girl around

She had more of those island charms
Than any girl I’d ever found
And when I held her in my arms
I felt the most fortunate man around

Some folks only think of surfing
When talking about the Aloha state
And others think that shopping
Out at Ala Moana sure is great

But the reason why the Aloha state
Stands out so fine in my memory
Is that brown eyed polynesian girl
The only one who means so much to me

Years have come and years have gone
Since that day which we met here by the sea
Our happy life is here in Hawaii’s tropic zone
With my polynesian wife, our kids and me



Palms Of Maui Isle (Larry W. Jones 07/08/2004) (song#3205)

There’s a cottage in the palms of Maui isle
And a brown eyed girl is waiting with a smile
I’ll return to paradise one day, never more to stray
From that cottage in the palms of Maui isle

Oh, that cottage on the shore of Maui isle
And a brown eyed girl with charms to beguile
She’s gonna be my island wife for the rest of my life
In the cottage in the palms of Maui isle

I’m boardin’ the ship for that pacific ocean trip
Back to the golden shores of Maui isle
I’ll see my brown eyed girl, prettiest in the world
And that cottage in the palms of Maui isle

And under soft moonlight, tropic stars shinin’ bright
When the bird of paradise calls from the hill
I’ll tell my brown eyed girl, by waves that gently curl
That I love her now and for all of my life I will

Oh, that cottage on the shore of Maui isle
And a brown eyed girl with charms to beguile
She’s gonna be my island wife for the rest of my life
In the cottage in the palms of Maui isle



A little Grass Shack (Larry W. Jones 07/08/2004) (song#3206)

There’s a little grass shack on a golden shore
Far away in Hawaii
It’s the dearest place in paradise
And the only place on earth I long to be

I’ve sailed through seven oceans
And I’ve sailed every deep blue sea
But a little grass shack holds my emotions
And it’s where my feet still want to be

I said Aloha ‘oe to my brown eyed isle sweetheart
Sweetest girl where breakers curl upon the sea
And every night I dream of her while we’re apart
In that little grass shack far away in Hawaii

Now my sailin’ days are done
And that Hokule’a star is guiding my way
Back to that little grass shack in the sun
Over in Hawaii far away

I’ve sailed through seven oceans
And I’ve sailed every deep blue sea
But a little grass shack holds my emotions
And it’s where my feet still want to be



Hawaiian Moonlight Girl (Larry w. Jones 07/08/2004) (song#3207)

Moon, oh tropic moon, I see you rising low
I’ll be seeing my ku’u ipo soon
On the isle where breezes blow
Moon, oh tropic moon

I was wondering if she’s thinking of me
And my mind is in a blur
Moon, oh tropic moon, dreams are rising from the sea
And I sure am thinking of her

My Hawaiian moonlight girl
You have set my heart awhirl
You sure look fine, gonna make you mine
My Hawaiian moonlight girl

My Hawaiian moonlight girl
You have set my heart awhirl
You sure look fine, gonna make you mine
My Hawaiian moonlight girl

You sure look fine, gonna make you mine
My Hawaiian moonlight girl



My Old Ukulele (Larry W. Jones 07/08/2004) (song#3208)

Well, the work week and me don’t agree
But friday has finally come at last
I’m gonna get my old ukulele
And play some island music from the past

I’ll sing about Mauna Kea rising up above
And the colorful rainbows all around
Play an ukulele tune for my own true love
Listen to that happy island sound

Carry me back to a shack made of grass
Cause that’s where I long to be
Gonna have my happy soul a blast
Playin’ my ukulele by the sea

I’m gonna see the old island folks
On the big old porch at home
Play a little love tune and try to coax
A kiss from my love before I roam

My sweetheart lives down yonder
Down by the shore of Waikiki
I’m gonna get my ukulele and wander
Down to play a love song for her and me



Why They Call Hawaii Blue (Larry W. Jones 07/14/2004) (song#3209)

Tonight as I look out my window
I know why they call Hawaii blue
For here where tradewinds blow
I’m blue and I’m missing you

Oh, return to me, island darlin’
I’m missing you day and night
And it’s so clear when tears begin
I’m as blue as the blue velvet night

There’s no way I can know happiness
When I’m blue in Hawaii blue
Oh, return and fill this emptiness
Return to me and forever be true

What will I do here without you
Dear, you know I’m lonely and blue
Oh, return to me, island darlin’
For I’ll never stop lovin’ you

What will I do here without you
Dear, you know I’m lonely and blue
Oh, return to me, island darlin’
For I’ll never stop lovin’ you
For I’ll never stop lovin’ you



Brown Eyed Darlin’ (Larry W. Jones 07/14/2004) (song#3210)

The full moon was shining up there all alone
Somewhere it was shining on you for awhile
As this ship sails on, I’m dreamin’ of home
And my brown eyed darlin’ of the isle

My brown eyed darlin’ of the isle
You’re my only love in paradise
You’re mine and I’ll see you in awhile
I love my brown eyed darlin’s eyes

This ship is sailin’ for a tropic zone
As I watch the stars in the skies beguile
I can’t wait til dawn when I’ll be home
Home to my brown eyed darlin’ of the isle

I’m coming home, brown eyed darlin’
Sailing back to you is so worthwhile
I’m coming home, brown eyed darlin’
To my brown eyed darlin’ of the isle

My brown eyed darlin’ of the isle
You’re my only love in paradise
You’re mine and I’ll see you in awhile
I love my brown eyed darlin’s eyes

I’m coming home, brown eyed darlin’
Sailing back to you is so worthwhile
I’m coming home, brown eyed darlin’
To my brown eyed darlin’ of the isle



A Lovely Wahini (Larry W. Jones 07/15/2004) (song#3211)

Everybody loves an island talk story
Of a lovely maid and an island man
Well, here’s one that has all the glory
But fast disappeared in island sand

A lovely wahini in Hawaii blue
Met me in the shadows as shadows do
Aloha was all that she said
One little kiss and then she had fled
And our island romance was through

A lovely wahini in Hawaii blue
Thought I was the island man she knew
Her charms were disarming though not alarming
And the man in the moon had a laugh too

I knew this lovely wahini was pretty
She certainly set the night aglow
It was funny, but honey, sure was a pity
And I hated to see that lovely wahini go

A lovely wahini in Hawaii blue
As crazy as it seems, I still have dreams
Of one little moment, with good intent
Just one little kiss for me that wasn’t mean
From a lovely wahini in Hawaii blue



Someone Such As You (Larry W. Jones 07/15/2004) (song#3212)

When someone such as I
Meets someone such as you
I know paradise has finally come true
It’s not a dream though it seems to be

When I held your hand
Here in Hawaii blue
Tradewinds whispered a command
That said Aloha I love you too

There are many wahinis on every island shore
But I never chose any of them to adore
For I knew that my paradise
Would appear when my dream came true
When someone such as I
Met someone such as you

One little moment when someone meets someone new
Can last for a lifetime when a dream comes true

There are many wahinis on every island shore
But I never chose any of them to adore
For I knew that my paradise
Would appear when my dream came true
When someone such as I
Met someone such as you

When someone such as I
Met someone such as you



Ku’u Ipo Mine (Larry W. Jones 07/15/2004) (song#3213)

A kane without a wahini
Is an ukulele without a mele
Is an island without a sea
Ku’u ipo

A kane without a wahini
Is a moon without moonlight
Is the month of June without a sigh
Ku’u ipo

But from the time you appeared
Time has been filled with love and cheer
Cause here by the sea so fine
This kane has found his wahini
Ku’u ipo mine

And if you’ll love only me
From now and until eternity
Then I will see that you’ll never be
A wahini without a kane
Ku’u ipo mine

But from the time you appeared
Time has been filled with love and cheer
Cause here by the sea so fine
This kane has found his wahini
Ku’u ipo mine

And if you’ll love only me
From now and until eternity
Then I will see that you’ll never be
A wahini without a kane
Ku’u ipo mine



A Lovely Smile (Larry W. Jones 07/15/2004) (song#3214)

 

A lovely smile, a pretty face
A look that makes a lonely heart pick up the pace
An island romance that starts with a glance, and then
A dream that you knew could never come true begins

You stroll together awhile where the tradewind blows
And then on the isle your dream of dream goes away
The tears inside you can hide, you suppose

But there’s no way you can face the daily pain
And in the night you hear the tradewind’s mournful refrain
That comes when you dream of a lovely smile
And of a pretty face again

A lovely smile, a pretty face
A look that makes a lonely heart pick up the pace
An island romance that starts with a glance, and then
A dream that you knew could never come true begins

But there’s no way you can face the daily pain
And in the night you hear the tradewind’s mournful refrain
That comes when you dream of a lovely smile
And of a pretty face again



Night Time In Old Kahala (Larry W. Jones 07/15/2004) (song#3215)

When it is night time in old Kahala
There beside the sea in June
Moonbeams are painting the ocean yellow
Where lovers stroll to swoon

The tall coco palms gently are swaying
And playing in the tradewinds
While the breezes old talk stories are saying
Of tales of when island love begins

One is of an ali’i kahuna
Who came to see the moon painting the ocean yellow
And there under the Hawaiian luna
He met a royal princess, this royal ali’i fellow

And now in the month of June in old Kahala
Lovers still swoon to the night time’s charms
It’s the right time to be in each others arms
When it’s night time in old Kahala

And now in the month of June in old Kahala
Lovers still swoon to the night time’s charms
It’s the right time to be in each others arms
When it’s night time in old Kahala



An Island Boy In Texas (Larry W. Jones 07/15/2004) (song#3216)

 

An island boy in Texas, Amarillo on the plain
Mem’ries of Hawaii and rainbows through the rain
There’s something wrong with this picture
Something that seems so plain
An island boy in Texas, Amarillo on the plain

He strolls downtown to while away the day
Thinking about Lahaina town on an isle so far away
Making a living on the mainland is such a pain
For an island boy in Texas, Amarillo on the plain

He stops to rest awhile on the avenue South Grand
To renew his thoughts of home back in island sand
Today he’s full of sorrow under blue of Texas skies
Hoping that tomorrow he’ll return to paradise

Something lost in childhood is something not regained
Even though the islands will always look the same
The heat of a Texas summer will never bring tradewinds
And the heart of an island boy in Texas
Is as empty as it’s ever been

An island boy in Texas, Amarillo on the plain
Mem’ries of Hawaii and rainbows through the rain
There’s something wrong with this picture
Something that seems so plain
An island boy in Texas, Amarillo on the plain
With mem’ries of Hawaii
And rainbows through the rain



Ukulele Dream (Larry W. Jones 07/16/2004) (song#3217)

I hear an ukulele in my ear
Playing as if islands were so near
And it’s relaying an old talk story
About an island girl like you

And every tune I hear it make
Reminds me of my heart about to break
That happy ukulele is a fake
Just like that dream I thought was you

That ukulele is a swell musical machine
Meaning well but now just being mean
My whole life was bent on loving you
Now it will be spent on feeling blue

But I guess I’ll listen one more time
To that ukulele makin’ rhyme
And feel my poor heart break just one more time
Thinking about an island girl like you

And every tune I hear it make
Reminds me of my heart about to break
That happy ukulele is a fake
Just like that dream I thought was you

I guess it’s time to stroll on home
But it’s a crime to be so all alone
Cause I know I’ll only dream
About an island girl like you
Yeah, I know I’ll only dream
About an island girl like you



Dreams Of The Island Kind (Larry W. Jones 07/16/2004) (song#3218)

 

A dream is like a wishing well
That never does run dry
A dream is something your heart can tell
About a love in paradise

When you go to sleep you say farewell
To reality as away it flies
And then when you’re under that magic spell
An island love is no surprise

A dream is a love song when it makes
Music instead of counting sheep
And an island of love is all it takes
For a dream that you can keep

So, believe in your dreams for you will find
That someday they may come true
And if they’re dreams of the island kind
My dreams will find the dreams of you

So, believe in your dreams for you will find
That someday they may come true
And if they’re dreams of the island kind
My dreams will find the dreams of you



Darling Leilani Lei (Larry W. Jones 07/16/2004) (song#3219)

 

Manoa is a lush green valley
On the old Hawaiian shore
Where I have spent many happy days
Just a-strolling and a-singing
By a grass shack cottage door
Where lived my darling Leilani Lei

When the moon had risen from its prison
And the tropic stars were shining too
I would take my darling Leilani Lei
On a moonlight ride in my outrigger canoe
And to her so sweetly my ukulele I would play

One night I went to find her
But never mind her, the folks all say
For a sailor came and found her
And now they’re bound for Mandalay

Oh, my poor darling Leilani Lei
Someone has come and taken you away
I fear that I will ne’er be near my darling anymore
I’m strolling by the ocean and crying every day
For you have gone away from the old Hawaiian shore

Now my outrigger is under water
And my ukulele is unstrung
And my dreams have vanished evermore
My heart has been cast downward
And my love songs for you will be unsung
For you have gone away to other shores

My heart has been cast downward
And my love songs for you will be unsung
For you have gone away to other shores



Ala Moana Rose (Larry W. Jones 07/16/2004) (song#3220)

 

When first I met my island rose
By the Ala Moana garden wall
I was strolling where the tradewind blows
And listening to the island’s call

Now I love to stroll among the roses
By Ala Moana’s garden wall
For it’s there that love imposes
When we listen to the island’s call

She was weaving a lei of tuberoses
She looked so sweet and shy
Even the birds of paradise discloses
She’s the sweetest rose in paradise

So, if you happen to see an island beauty
Who looks to be the finest of the fine
You’ll see why it was my duty
To make that Ala Moana rose all mine

She was weaving a lei of tuberoses
She looked so sweet and shy
Even the birds of paradise discloses
She’s the sweetest rose in paradise

So, if you happen to see an island beauty
Who looks to be the finest of the fine
You’ll see why it was my duty
To make that Ala Moana rose all mine



Island Man In Island Sand (Larry W. Jones 07/16/2004) (song#3221)

 

I’m just an island man
An island man in island sand
Looking for an island girl to love here by the bay
I’m just an island man
An island man in island sand
Happy to be in Hawaii blue
Instead of under skies of gray
Tropic sunshine has brought us together
On this island in the sea
So, let’s see as to whether
A dream come true there will be
Oh, I’ll be your island man
Your island man in island sand
If you’ll be the island girl here by the bay
With an island love that’s here to stay

Well, I just met an island man
An island man in island sand
He was looking for an island girl to love here by the bay
I just met an island man
An island man in island sand
He was happy to be in Hawaii blue
Instead of under skies of gray
Tropic sunshine has brought us together
On this island in the sea
So, let’s see as to whether
A dream come true there will be
Oh, I told him that he could be my island man
My island man in island sand
And I said I’d be his island girl here by the bay
With an island love that’s here to stay



A Blue Hapa Haole (Larry W. Jones 07/16/2004) (song#3222)

 

I was a hapa haole in the city
Just a mainland stranger for a day or two
The feeling I had wasn’t pretty
For I was blue in Hawaii blue
Didn’t know what to do

But as I strolled through old Lahaina town alone
Maui chimes tolled like I’ve never known

A blue island day in Lahaina town
Down by the bay I was feeling down
And even though the tradewind was warm
Somehow the island had lost its charm
A sad hapa haole I’d been cast
How long could this mainland stranger last

And that was when I saw you there
Wearing a red hibiscus in your hair
You looked so lovely beyond compare
And suddenly the blue of old Lahaina town
Turned into the gold of a rainbow everywhere

But as I strolled through old Lahaina town alone
Maui chimes tolled like I’ve never known

And that was when I saw you there
Wearing a red hibiscus in your hair
You looked so lovely beyond compare
And suddenly the blue of old Lahaina town
Turned into the gold of a rainbow everywhere



A Treasured Kiss (Larry W. Jones 07/16/2004) (song#3223)

 

A treasured kiss, and then a love is severed
A fond Aloha ‘oe that must be forever
I leave my broken heart here by the sea
Filled with tears I pledge to thee
You are the one for whom I’ll ever grieve
As long as there are island memories

For me, stars that twinkle won’t cheer me
Only darkness of despair is near me
But never shall I blame my only fancy
For no one could resist sweet Leilani

Oh, just to see her was to love her
Love for only her, and that forever
If we had never met so blindly
If we had never loved so kindly
Then love would never have started, or parted
And we would never have been broken hearted

Aloha ‘oe, first love and fairest
Aloha ‘oe, best love and dearest
You will ever be my joy and traeasue
My dreams to be will bring me pleasure

A treasured kiss, and then a love is severed
A fond Aloha ‘oe that must be forever
I leave my broken heart here by the sea
Filled with tears I pledge to thee
You are the one for whom I’ll ever grieve
As long as there are island memories



Alana And Ray (Larry W. Jones 07/16/2004) (song#3224)

 

The island looks rosy down on moonlight bay
For a girl named Alana and a guy named Ray

Go on and hold her close, said the wise osprey
To a girl named Alana and a guy named Ray

Where there’s an island full of moonlight
And a girl named Alana with her charms
There should be a Raymond every night
To hold her in his loving arms

So, when I kiss you, and I think I may
That’s the thing to do in Hawaii blue
Cause you’re my Alana and I’m your Ray
And we’re in love down on moonlight bay

Where there’s an island full of moonlight
And a girl named Alana with her charms
There should be a Raymond every night
To hold her in his loving arms

So, when I kiss you, and I think I may
That’s the thing to do in Hawaii blue
Cause you’re my Alana and I’m your Ray
And we’re in love down on moonlight bay

Cause you’re my Alana and I’m your Ray
And we’re in love down on moonlight bay



This Dream Of Mine (Larry W. Jones 07/16/2004) (song#3225)

I’ve heard a lot of stories of islands in the blue
They’re all about love and of dreams come true
Some of them are of me and you
I’ll take a chance on a little grass skirt
Though island romance might get me hurt
I’ll see if my dreams really will come true

Where tradewinds blow
A dream come true is hard to find
I want you to know
I think about you all the time

And a dream come true is hard to find
True island love, the lasting kind
A dream come true is hard to find
So, please be kind to this dream of mine

The things I expect out of paradise
Rings of the dreams of my early youth
Soon I will know if it’s laughs or cries
And if it’s happiness or some painful truth
But I’ll face it like a man in a tropic zone
Where any dream is better that loving alone

Where tradewinds blow down by the bay
This is what the old folks on the island say

And a dream come true is hard to find
True island love, the lasting kind
A dream come true is hard to find
So, please be kind to this dream of mine

A dream come true is hard to find
So, please be kind to this dream of mine



A Habit Without End (Larry W. Jones 07/16/2004) (song#3226)

 

Wanting you on this island in the sea
Really isn’t good for me
And I see
That if I sailed away from this tropic zone
I know I couldn’t stay gone too long
So, there’s no use in sailing in the wind
Cause wanting you is a habit without end

If I could find a way, I’d stop loving you today
Heaven knows, I’ve been tryin’
But I haven’t found a way to stop loving you this way
If I said I have, I’d be lyin’
So, why pretend
Cause wanting you is a habit without end

Wanting you is a habit without end
You’re like an island song that keeps goin’ on
Can’t remember where it begins
It will never change, time can’t rearrange
And my broken heart just can’t mend
Cause wanting you is a habit without end

If I could find a way, I’d stop loving you today
Heaven knows, I’ve been tryin’
But I haven’t found a way to stop loving you this way
If I said I have, I’d be lyin’
So, why pretend
Cause wanting you is a habit without end

It will never change, time can’t rearrange
And my broken heart just can’t mend
Cause wanting you is a habit without end



Time Oh Endless Time (Larry W. Jones 07/16/2004) (song#3227)

 

Time, oh endless time
Where is the time of love for me

Time, oh endless time
All my dreams have drifted out to sea
Now I can’t see any possibility
For time to hear my plea

I’ve looked around and all I’ve found
Is the arctic sky and gales of winter
I dream of warm island sand
And someone to love an island man
The peacefulness of the ebbing tide
With her strolling by my side
Instead of yard arms and masts that splinter

I’ve looked around and all I’ve found
Is the arctic sky and gales of winter

When she was around
The green grass was growing high
There was new love in old Lahaina town
When it was springtime in paradise

But seasons change and time goes by
A sailor’s time is spent on the oceans wide
A tapestry of dreams not meant to be
Lost somewhere in time endlessly

I dream of warm island sand
And someone to love an island man
The peacefulness of the ebbing tide
With her strolling by my side
Time, oh endless time
Where is the time of love for me



A Heart In Honolulu (Larry W. Jones 07/16/2004) (song#3228)

 

Honolulu
To your tall palm trees I return once more
Sailing in on a tradewind breeze to your golden shore
Honolulu
Thinking of Ala Moana park
Where lovers stroll every night in the dark

Honolulu, like a scene from a movie about paradise
There’s no doubt when you see the sun set
And when you see the tropic moon arise

But there’s another reason I can’t wait
For the movie to start
Honolulu, there’s a heart in Honolulu
A girl with a heart in Honolulu

There’s a heart in Honolulu, on Mililani street
And a song in my heart with every heartbeat
A heart in Honolulu, someone to love in paradise
A heart with an open door on an island shore
Honolulu, I’ve got you on my mind

Honolulu, like a scene from a movie about paradise
There’s no doubt when you see the sun set
And when you see the tropic moon arise

There’s a heart in Honolulu, on Mililani street
And a song in my heart with every heartbeat
A heart in Honolulu, someone to love in paradise
A heart with an open door on an island shore
Honolulu, I’ve got you on my mind



An Island With Love On It (Larry W. Jones 07/16/2004) (song#3229)

 

An island with love on it
Is a place that is rich indeed
There’s no reason to postpone it
When you’re heart’s in need

You don’t need a thousand things
When all you need are heart strings in tune
You can make the islands sing
If you start every month as if it were June

It may be an island that’s kinda bare
But it will be an island beautiful
As long as island love is there
And two hearts with love to share

An island with love on it
Is like flowers in full bloom
An island with love on it
Is like a big full moon

So, sweetheart, there’s no reason to postpone it
Come and be my love forever and a day
Cause an island with love on it
Is where you and I will stay



A Hundred Lifetimes (Larry W. Jones 07/16/2004) (song#3230)

 

A hundred lifetimes from now
My eyes won’t feel like cryin’
A hundred lifetimes from now
My heart won’t feel like dyin’

Blue Hawaii will still be blue
A hundred lifetimes from now
But I won’t still be lovin’ you
A hundred lifetimes from now

There’s one thing I know I’ll forget
A hundred lifetimes from now
It’s the day that you and I met
When we watched that big sunset

By then it won’t matter anyhow
Island love is past, it didn’t last
There won’t be a heart to shatter
Or dreams that drift and scatter
A hundred lifetimes from now

When you said you loved someone new
That was when Hawaii turned blue
But it won’t matter to me anyhow
A hundred lifetimes from now



Rocket To The Moon (Larry W. Jones 07/17/2004) (song#3231)

 

We could take a rocket to the moon
And we’d be there very soon
If you would come along with me

In this romantic month of June
We could take a rocket to the moon
From this island in the sea

As in love as we are
The moon’s not really very far
We’d get a better view of all the stars
If you would come along with me

We could be there before dawn
Before this magic night is gone
From this island in the sea

You’ve already fueled up my very heart
One little kiss is all the spark it needs
And we’ll be on our way to dreams come true
On a rocket to the moon with you

As in love as we are
The moon’s not really very far
We’d get a better view of all the stars
If you would come along with me

You’ve already fueled up my very heart
One little kiss is all the spark it needs
And we’ll be on our way to dreams come true
On a rocket to the moon with you



Don’t Say No (Larry W. Jones 07/17/2004) (song#3232)

 

If you say no where tradewinds blow
You’re gonna miss a life of bliss
One little kiss, my island miss
Can make a dream come true

Don’t say no if you mean yes
One sweet kiss, one soft caress
And island love will do the rest
To make a dream come true

The island has a way to bless
After all, when islands call
Aloha is a word that means yes yes
That tradewinds whisper to us all

You and I could fall in love
On an island with an ocean view
It would be excitin’, a spark of lightnin’
A rainbow with all the hues
That would make a dream come true

Don’t say no if you mean yes
One sweet kiss, one soft caress
And island love will do the rest
To make a dream come true

You and I could fall in love
On an island with an ocean view
It would be excitin’, a spark of lightnin’
A rainbow with all the hues
That would make a dream come true



Charms To Wrap My Arms Around (Larry W. Jones 07/17/2004) (song#3233)

 

Give me your charms to wrap my arms around
And I’ll let imagination do the rest
You’re the only one who makes me feel so blessed
Give me your charms in old Lahaina town
Charms to wrap my arms around

Give me your charms before I leave
And I’ll let imagination make believe
That dreams come true when I’m island bound
Charms to wrap my arms around

When I’m alone, I often fancy
That I’m with you, being romancy
Making believe that dreams are coming down
Making believe that I’m with you
In old Lahaina town
With charms to wrap my arms around

Give me your charms before I leave
And I’ll let imagination make believe
That dreams come true when I’m island bound
Charms to wrap my arms around

When I’m alone, I often fancy
That I’m with you, being romancy
Making believe that dreams are coming down
Making believe that I’m with you
In old Lahaina town
With charms to wrap my arms around



A Letter From Paradise (Larry W. Jones 07/17/2004) (song#3234)

 

I received a letter in the mail
Postmarked from Honolulu was the trail
I was so excited to get a letter from paradise
But then you should have heard my cries

She wrote, Dear Larry, just wanted to say Aloha
An old friend like you, I thought should know
Here on the island where tradewinds blow
I’ve fallen in love with a dream come true
By the way, Larry, he reminds me of you

I met him at the luau, it was really neat
He danced with me and swept me off my feet

I’ll send you some photos of our wedding
It might take a week or two
Now off on our honeymoon we’re heading
To another island in Hawaii blue

So, I’ll close and say Aloha ‘oe
I’m so happy to be his bride
I wished her happiness, and cried

She was the girl that I loved so
I took too long and never let her know
I was shy and didn’t take the chance
Now I’m denied of her romance
Aloha means love in paradise
But Aloha ‘oe for me only means goodbye



Melody Of The Tradewinds (Larry W. Jones 07/17/2004) (song#3235)

 

The melody of the tradewinds
Is calling from islands afar
And the sound that I hear
Wherever you are
Is the Aloha when you were near

The melody of the tradewinds
Is a song of islands in paradise
And the sound that I hear
One that can’t be disguised
Is the Aloha when you were near

So long ago, it seems
I was on an isle of dreams
Tradewinds whispered your name to me
As I held you by the sea
Now those times of long ago
Where tradewinds softly blow
Still call to me each night, it seems
To return across the sea
To you and to renew my dreams

The melody of the tradewinds
Is calling from islands afar
So, I’ll return to where the dream begins
To find you under the stars
The melody of the tradewinds
Calls me to return to where you are



Empty Luau Platter (Larry W. Jones 07/17/2004) (song#3236)

 

I met her in Lahaina town
Just as the sun was going down
She said I could telephone
And I might could even walk her home

Moonlight on the island sand
We strolled together hand in hand
The weather was balmy in paradise
And the tall palms caressed the skies

Then a big kahuna strolled into town
He took my girl and he put me down
I watched as they strolled away
And this is all I guess that I can say

A little bit is all that really matters
It’s better than an empty luau platter
A little bit is all that really matters
A little bit will do it when the islands call

She said the mainland was not her style
Big Dallas and big buildings drove her wild
So, she would just stay there on the isle
And when she strolled away, I could see her smile

I watched as they strolled away
And this is all I guess that I can say

A little bit is all that really matters
It’s better than an empty luau platter
A little bit is all that really matters
A little bit will do it when the islands call

A little bit is all that really matters
It’s better than an empty luau platter
A little bit is all that really matters
A little bit will do it when the islands call



Tradewinds On This Shore (Larry W. Jones 07/17/2004) (song#3237)

 

We’ll laugh as long as islands are calling
Love forever even if tears are falling
Converse about all the things we’ve said before

I’ll let my words try to reach you
I’ll have Aloha love here to teach you
While tradewinds whisper love on this island shore

We’ll stroll down by the bay and cast our sorrows
Into the ocean with a lei of bright tomorrows
I’ll give all to you until there’s nothing more

In giving everything I ask, you don’t refuse me
You say you care and never want to lose me
As faithful as the tradewinds on this island shore

You must know that I will never leave you
And you know that I will never grieve you
This island love of ours will last for evermore

If there’s ever tears, then I must cry them
But if they’re yours, then I must dry them
In the breezes of the tradewinds on this island shore



Lahaina Bay Cafe (Larry W. Jones 07/17/2004) (song#3238)

 

It’s only a small cafe
Where old island folks meet
Down by Lahaina bay
I’d love to return back there to greet
All of my old friends someday

That small cafe, it’s kinda old
A little bit run down
But island friends are like pure gold
In old Lahaina town

I’ll never have money as the rich
But then again, I’m never poor
I’d never switch
I have a lot of friends, for sure
Who will welcome me at Lahaina bay

That small cafe, it’s kinda old
A little bit run down
But island friends are like pure gold
In old Lahaina town

I’ll never have money as the rich
But then again, I’m never poor
I’d never switch
I have a lot of friends, for sure
Who will welcome me at Lahaina bay

It’s only a small cafe
Where old island folks meet
Down by Lahaina bay
I’d love to return back there to greet
All of my old friends someday



Little Voice Inside Me (Larry W. Jones 07/17/2004) (song#3239)

 

There’s a little voice I hear
Somewhere deep inside me, dear
That says our romance is really true
And it’s been saying lately
That our love is really stately
Your lips of fire gave me the clue

That little voice I hear
Says that we will never part
The song it sings is one of cheer
That comes from two hearts so true

And here’s one more thing it tells me
Here on this shore it’s just as strong
As when two brand new faces
Met in those first embraces
And time has proven that we weren’t wrong

I’m sure that there will never come a day
When you would leave me
For that would grieve me and I would cry
And that little voice inside me
Doesn’t know how to say Aloha ‘oe goodbye

And that little voice inside me
Doesn’t know how to say Aloha ‘oe goodbye



Ocean Of Memories (Larry W. Jones 07/17/2004) (song#3240)

 

Well, I know of a little grass shack
On an island in the palms set back
And I can hear those southern isle melodies
It’s the place where I was born
On a bright polynesian morn
And it’s still there in the tradewind air
At the end of my ocean of memories

One fine day I’ll return, you see
Across that ocean of memories
To the little grass shack that’s set back
Among those tall palm trees

There the tropic sun is shining
And nobody’s sighing or pining
Around that little grass shack
At the end of my ocean of memories

My dear old mother is old and gray
Cookin’ up the poi down by the bay
She’ll have a smile when she welcomes me
Just like the tradewinds beckon me
Back to that little grass shack
At the end of my ocean of memories

When the voice of the islands call
That’s when my childhood mem’ries fall
Returning to my days spent by the sea
The only answer’s in the tradewind air
And soon I’ll be returning there
To the end of my ocean of memories



Hawaiian Island Sand (Larry W. Jones 07/18/2004) (song#3241)

 

I’m dreaming tonight of Hawaii
Back to those shores is where I’ll roam
It’s a paradise there by the sea
In my Hawaiian island home

These mainland folks don’t really care
And I just can’t take the heat
I’m gonna cross that ocean there
It’s Hawaiian island sand for me

These big freeways are much too long
It’s Hawaiian island sand for me
I’m returning to my island home
Far away across that peaceful sea

Those white tuberoses smell so sweet
By the blue waters of the bay
This mainland life is not for me
That’s why I’ll soon be on my way

These mainland folks don’t really care
And I just can’t take the heat
I’m gonna cross that ocean there
It’s Hawaiian island sand for me

These big freeways are much too long
It’s Hawaiian island sand for me
I’m returning to my island home
Far away across that peaceful sea
It’s Hawaiian island sand for me



Shadow Of The Palms (Larry W. Jones 07/18/2004) (song#3242)

 

Under the shadow of the palms
Lives an island girl I know is mine
She makes island livin’ fine
Under the shadow of the palms

No matter where I have to roam
She’s waiting where the tradewinds blow
When I return she’s mine I know
Under the shadow of the palms

Yes, she’s waiting there for me
And I can’t wait to be in her arms
I’ll love her for eternity
Under the shadow of the palms

Long black hair and a lei of blue
With a golden heart that’s true
She’s my island gal, I’m tellin’ you
Under the shadow of the palms

Arms that hold me nice and tight
And lips that kiss are outta sight
I hate to say Aloha ‘oe goodnight
Under the shadow of the palms



Love This Beautiful (Larry W. Jones 07/18/2004) (song#3243)

 

The tropic island sun shone down
And gave our love this afterglow
And in my heart is still around
The feeling that it still will grow
An island love this beautiful
Is a love that’s sure to stay
An island love this beautiful
Will never drift away

Some folks thought that we were too young
Too many things in life we didn’t know
Now the song they sing is a different tongue
Here where the tradewind breezes blow
An island love this beautiful
Is a love that’s sure to stay
An island love this beautiful
Will never drift away

Every day and night when I think of you
Every way that’s right I’m in love again
Here on the isle where dreams come true
My love for you will never wane
An island love this beautiful
Is a love that’s sure to stay
An island love this beautiful
Will never drift away



Ku’u Ipo Kani Lehua (Larry W. Jones 07/18/2004) (song#3244)

 

E ku’u nani lei
E ku’u ipo kani lehua
E ke Aloha ku’u ipo mau loa
My beautiful sweetheart lei
My sweetheart who drinks of lehua rain
I will love you, my sweetheart, forever

When I hold you in my arms
I know of all your charms
Love me, love me, love me
Love me ku’u nani lei
Love me ku’u ipo kani lehua
My sweetheart who drinks of lehua rain
I will love you, my sweetheart, forever

Hele mai, hele mai, ku’u ipo
Nei mele ho’oheno nou
Ku’u Aloha ke maoli
Come to me, come to me sweetheart
This cherished song is for you
My love is true

When I hold you in my arms
I know of all your charms
Love me, love me, love me
Love me ku’u nani lei
Love me ku’u ipo kani lehua
My sweetheart who drinks of lehua rain
I will love you, my sweetheart, forever

Haina ia mai kapuana la
Let the refrain be told
Of ku’u ipo kani lehua
My sweetheart who drinks of lehua rain



Gentle Ho’okili Rain (Larry W. Jones 07/18/2004) (song#3245)

 

How gentle is ho’okili rain
Falling softly in the valleys
Birds of paradise in sweet refrain
Serenade our love with melodies

Look at the skies above
Bright in paradise is the rainbow
The magic of island love
Is like the gentle ho’okili rain

You and I are so in love
We belong to each other
Like a serenade in skies above
We will love forever

I will never make you cry
Never will I cause your heart to pain
So in love are you and I
Gentle as a serenade of ho’okili rain

Someday you and I will return
To this magic island once again
And our love will continue to burn
Through the gentle ho’okili rain

I will hold you in my arms
And you’ll hear me say
E ke Aloha ku’u ipo again
I will keep you forever warm
And I will be the same with your charms
In the gentle ho’okili rain



Behind That Tropic Moon (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2004) (song#3246)

 

She looked real good when I first met her
And in a hula skirt she was even better
But I haven’t seen her since last June
She’s hiding somewhere behind that tropic moon

I’ve got some pictures of her, but that’s all
Like memories lined up against the wall
Broken on the reef, my dreams are strewn
She’s hiding somewhere behind that tropic moon

The sun goes down on a lonely shore
With a darkness that feels like doom
I know she’s somewhere outside my door
Hiding somewhere behind that tropic moon

Tropic moon, where is she tonight
Are you hiding her behind some cloud
And must I have to spell it all out loud
I need my love here in my sight
Please light her way back here real soon
And don’t hide her behind that tropic moon

I’ve got some pictures of her, but that’s all
Like memories lined up against the wall
Broken on the reef, my dreams are strewn
She’s hiding somewhere behind that tropic moon

Tropic moon, where is she tonight
Are you hiding her behind some cloud
And must I have to spell it all out loud
I need my love here in my sight
Please light her way back here real soon
And don’t hide her behind that tropic moon



All The Words (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2004) (song#3247)

 

Aloha is the word that I recall
But even it doesn’t capture all
The beauty that I see in you

All the words that dwell in paradise
Could never tell of all my sighs
With all my heart I want to hold you
With loving arms I must enfold you
To live without your love would be my demise

All your sweet love, please bring to me
Ku’u ipo, hele mai and cling to me

All the words that dwell in paradise
Could never tell of all my sighs
Aloha is the word that I recall
When I first heard the islands call
And so, I pledge to give my all
To you here on this island in the sea

All your sweet love, please bring to me
Ku’u ipo, hele mai and cling to me

All the words that dwell in paradise
Could never tell of all my sighs
Aloha is the word that I recall
When I first heard the islands call
And so, I pledge to give my all
To you here on this island in the sea



So All Alone (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2004) (song#3248)

 

Oh, I’m so all alone
So all alone in this tropic zone
Oh, I’m so all alone
Waiting by a lonely phone
It’s been so long since I’ve heard it ring
Waiting for your ring-a-ling

Oh, I’m so all alone
So all alone in the island evening
Oh, I’m so all alone
Waiting by the phone and grieving
Feeling blue in Hawaii blue
Alone and feeling blue over you

I sit here wondering where you are
With tears I wonder how you are
And if you’re lonely too

Oh, I’m so all alone
So all alone remembering you
Oh, I’m so all alone
Wondering if you remember too
And if you’re all alone in this tropic zone
Remember, I’m so all alone and missing you

Oh, I’m so all alone
Wondering if you remember too
And if you’re all alone in this tropic zone
Remember, I’m so all alone and missing you



Down In Manoa Valley (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2004) (song#3249)

 

Down in Manoa valley, valley where rainbows glow
I hang my head over and hear tradewinds blow
Hear tradewinds blow dear, hear tradewinds blow
I hang my head over and hear tradewinds blow

Tuberoses love sunshine in Hawaii blue
Everyone knows you were mine, and I still love you
I still love you dear, I still love you
Everyone knows you were mine, and I still love you

But you love another here by the sea
Oh, how it bothers and makes my heart grieve
Makes my heart grieve dear, makes my heart grieve
Oh, how it bothers and makes my heart grieve

I’ll climb me a palm tree forty feet high
So I can see him as he strolls by
As he strolls by love, as he strolls by
So I can see him as he strolls by

Don’t write me a letter or send any mail
My heart is now broken as away I do sail
Away I do sail love, away I do sail
My heart is now broken as away I do sail



My Tropic Sunshine (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2004) (song#3250)

 

The gloominess has all been cleared away
Flowers are blooming down by the bay
There’s an island girl I love in paradise
She’s the tropic sunshine in my eyes

Island love and my tropic sunshine
Island love and my tropic sunshine
When the island called, it was right on time
She’s my island love and my tropic sunshine

Any old sunshine can make things bright
But warm tropic sunshine can make things right
And my sunshine is from the isles of love

She’s an island angel, warm and bright
Warm as the tropic sun even in the night
She’s my island love and my tropic sunshine

No matter the season, winter or fall
She’s my reason why the islands call
She’s my tropic sunshine in paradise

This old world is filled with tears and pain
But she makes rainbows shine through the rain
The love she gives is mine all mine

Island love and my tropic sunshine
Island love and my tropic sunshine
When the island called, it was right on time
She’s my island love and my tropic sunshine

My island love and my tropic sunshine
My island love and my tropic sunshine
My island love and my tropic sunshine



Love Has Taken Wing (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2004) (song#3251)

 

When I first saw you in paradise
I wondered if you were make believe
You made stars come out in the velvet blue
But then after I had blinked my eyes
I saw I was wearing my heart on my sleeve
And it was plain to see my love for you

When I first saw you smile at me
Everything on the isle was mine
Including all my dreams of you
Here on this island in the sea
You’re the reason why rainbows shine
And the reason my dreams came true

My heart now beats to an island refrain
When I’m strolling along with you
How sweet is the song of love again
Here in this island rendezvous

You’re the subject of the dreams I dream
You reflect the love songs I sing
You’re the tropic stars and the moon and everything
Now, life without you wouldn’t mean a thing
You’re the music on my heart strings
Because of you, island love has taken wing

My heart now beats to an island refrain
When I’m strolling along with you
How sweet is the song of love again
Here in this island rendezvous

You’re the subject of the dreams I dream
You reflect the love songs I sing
You’re the tropic stars and the moon and everything
Now, life without you wouldn’t mean a thing
You’re the music on my heart strings
Because of you, island love has taken wing



Those Golden Shores (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2004) (song#3252)

 

Well, it’s kinda funny where some island people live
I guess it must be just a passing stage
They live in places where tradewinds ain’t never seen
And they all yearn to return to islands where they’ve been

Island folks live in Arizona, cactus they’ve not known of
And a lot of them are livin’ by the Frisco bay
Now they all just sit and pout, nothin’ to write home about
And more and more you can hear them say

They’re all going to return, all going to return
They’re all going to return to Hawaii
And to those golden shores
Their makuakanes and makuawahinis are waiting
Back there by the score
And they miss that ohana love so much
Their hearts are getting sore

Island folks live in Las Vegas, losing more than wages
That ninth island’s as crowded as can be
They live in places where tradewinds ain’t never seen
And they all yearn to return to islands where they’ve been

They’re all going to return, all going to return
They’re all going to return to Hawaii
And to those golden shores
Their makuakanes and makuawahinis are waiting
Back there by the score
And they miss that ohana love so much
Their hearts are getting sore

They’re all going to return, all going to return
They’re all going to return to Hawaii
And to those golden shores
They’re all going to return to Hawaii
And to those golden shores



Fair Shores Of Waikiki (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2004) (song#3253)

 

Seeing is believing
When the tropic moon is softly beaming
There’s no deceiving
When you feel island love at Waikiki

Tropic stars there always shine so bright
And the tradewind air is a delight
When you’re in my arms, the world is right
And I’ll delight in your charms eternally

Fair shores of Waikiki
Fair island of Hawaii
Lovely gems in a peaceful sea

Fair shores of Waikiki
Fair island of Hawaii
Sweet memories are waiting there for me

Tropic stars there always shine so bright
And the tradewind air is a delight
When you’re in my arms, the world is right
And I’ll delight in your charms eternally

Fair shores of Waikiki
Fair island of Hawaii
Lovely gems in a peaceful sea

Fair shores of Waikiki
Fair island of Hawaii
Sweet memories are waiting there for me



Bare Footin’ (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2004) (song#3254)

 

Now down the shore about a mile or two
Lives my island girl whose heart is true
She’s from paradise and her eyes are brown
She’s the prettiest girl in Lahaina town

Many a time when the tradewind blowed
I was bare footin’ down the island road
Tryin’ to get to my island girl on time
You could find me there most of the time

Every day down by the bay so blue
I go to see my Leilani Lou
Early in the evening ‘fore the rooster crowed
I go bare footin’ down the island road
To see my Leilani Lou

Her mama and daddy own a big plantation
Sugar cane fields and a sugar mill
But the sweetest thing in that location
Is Leilani Lou and she always will

If I get a case of the island blues
I go bare footin’ to Leilani Lou’s
Down the shore about a mile or two
Lives my island girl whose heart is true



Sailing With The Tide (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2004) (song#3255)

 

Well, my ship is somewhere near the harbor
According to the chart
To return to you I’ve often tried
When I think of you my heart is stirred
But if someone else now owns your heart
I’ll keep on sailing with the tide

I’ve crossed the great pacific ocean
Crossed the seas so deep and wide
But if someone else has your devotion
I’ll keep on sailing with the tide

It’s been a long time with many sorrows
Since we made those sweetheart vows
And it would be more blue tomorrows
If I should find my dreams are over now

I’m still in love with you, my sweetheart
This old ocean’s too deep and wide
But if you say we must stay apart
I’ll keep on sailing with the tide



Return To Golden Sands (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2004) (song#3256)

 

Soft moonlight shining over Hawaii
Starlight like diamonds on a string
Dreams of my return now call me
To islands where steel guitars ring

On the isle with seas surrounding
The golden shores of Kaanapali
Sweet Maui chimes are sounding
Across west Maui mountains tenderly

Moonlight makes me dream of my island Miss
And takes me back to golden sands
Her sweet love and her sweet kiss
Are so far away from cold mainlands

Ku’u ipo, I know you’re waiting there
Soon I’ll return and hold your hand
I will place a fragrant flower in your hair
When I return to golden sands

On the isle with seas surrounding
The golden shores of Kaanapali
Sweet Maui chimes are sounding
Across west Maui mountains tenderly

Ku’u ipo, I know you’re waiting there
Soon I’ll return and hold your hand
I will place a fragrant flower in your hair
When I return to golden sands



Ye Maui Sailors (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2004) (song#3257)

 

Heave ho! me Maui lads, ye winds be blowing now
Fore the gale has come upon our starboard bow
And now me Maui lads, ‘cross the oceans deep
Steer we our gallant ship while night watch keep

Ere before we part from dear old Maui’s shore tonight
This song we sing for our Maui home and all hopes bright
For here’s to the Maui sailor, and here’s to Hawaii too
May his own true love now think of him upon the oceans blue

Sailing, Maui men go whaling o’er the bounding main
Many a stormy day and night shall upon ye blow
Ere ye Maui sailor men come home to Maui isle again
Many a stormy day and night shall upon ye blow
Ere ye Maui sailor men come home to Maui isle again

Aloha ‘oe Lahaina and Ka’anapali, goodbye to Napili bay
Aloha ‘oe Kapalua and Honolua, goodbye to Nakalele point
Ye Maui sailors be bold and free, ye heart be true and brave
As upon the roaring sea ye fight the restless waves

Afar ye Maui sailors sail, unto arctic climes ye roam
And Maui chimes will be ye song across the foam
And when the heightened tide is flowing with the gale
Though ye be frightened, set ye every sail

All the safety of the harbors now ye clear
Aloha ‘oe to old Maui, the isle ye hold so dear
And when the storms shall rage loud and long
Old Lahaina will be ye star to guide ye home



Charms In The Moonlight (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2004) (song#3258)

 

In the beautiful Manoa valley of Oahu
Lives an island girl who’s waiting for me
Many were the times we strolled in the moonlight
And in her lovely hula arms I long to be

Oh how I miss her sweet charms in the moonlight
And I’m sure that she misses me too
In the beautiful Manoa valley of Oahu
I know that her love for me is still true

In the beautiful Manoa valley of Oahu
Lives an island girl who’s waiting for me
Many were the times we strolled in the moonlight
And in her lovely hula arms I long to be

Oh how I miss her sweet charms in the moonlight
And I’m sure that she misses me too
In the beautiful Manoa valley of Oahu
I know that her love for me is still true



Sunshine Of My Heart (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2004) (song#3259)

 

The bird of paradise in the spring
Sings beneath the tall palm tree
And as he sang, I heard him sing
I heard him sing of sweet Leilani
Leilani, Leilani, maid with long black hair
It’s you the sunshine came to see
And birds of paradise in the air

In your blush the island rose was born
The music of tradewinds when you spoke
Through your polynesian eyes, the morn
Which seemed so lovely when it broke
Leilani, Leilani, birds on paradise wing
Have not the song that might match yours at night
Nor as you can they cause my heart to sing

Leilani, birds of the sea may flee from there
If clouds should come and bring stormy air
But if your lovely polynesian eyes I see
Then any gloom will surely soon depart
For in your beauty, there is light and life for me
Sweet Leilani, you are sunshine of my heart

Here on the isle I saw a dream
A dream where tradewind blows
For on your face sunshine was seen
Warm sunlight kissed your lips of rose
Leilani, Leilani, take this your wedding ring
And to me sunlight and love please bring
And birds of paradise in the spring



Beach Boy Guitars (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2004) (song#3260)

 

Sweet hula maidens are swaying
On island guitars, beach boys are playing
Love songs under the stars
My memories are now straying
Back to fair Hawaii
To fair Hawaii afar

Back on the island
Under the moon
I know tunes they’re strumming
And love songs they’re humming
Will call me back soon

Each song that they sing
Each note that they ring
Calls over the sea from afar
Each day I’m away
Each night I still say
I must return to where they are

So, I’ll soon be sailing
To where mellow tunes are trailing
Each night under the stars
Back to where sweet hula maidens are swaying
And to where they are playing
Those mellow beach boy guitars



All I Want From You (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2004) (song#3261)

 

To welcome each island morn with you
To feel your hand upon my pillow
When the tropic sun breaks through
To begin another day that’s new
Yes, it’s true
That’s all I want from you

And when I sail away
To another shore, some other world
No one could ever beg me stay
For around you my life is curled
When I’m away
Just to feel that way
That’s all I want from you

That’s all I want from you
To look into your knowing eyes
Knowing that you’re from paradise
That’s all I want from you

And then when I return to you
Warm tropic nights are meant for love
I love the things you do
When twilight comes and day is through
Just to be with you
That’s all I want from you

That’s all I want from you
To look into your knowing eyes
Knowing that you’re from paradise
That’s all I want from you

When twilight comes and day is through
Just to be with you
That’s all I want from you
That’s all I want from you



My Dream And Love (Larry W. Jones 07/24/2004) (song#3262)

 

Away from you Leilani, I must go
Far away from this island shore
How cruel is life when it throws
Between us the ocean’s roar

Though deep the oceans, oceans wide
That seperates our love by sea
None of them can ‘ere divide
Love for you from this heart of me

Aloha ‘oe, farewell Leilani dear
Sweet island maid that I adore
In my ear a boding voice I hear
That says Aloha ‘oe forevermore

As the last throb departs my broken heart
When death comes strolling by
Only then can rob from me your part
That was my dream and love in paradise

Aloha ‘oe, farewell Leilani dear
Sweet island maid that I adore
In my ear a boding voice I hear
That says Aloha ‘oe forevermore

As the last throb departs my broken heart
When death comes strolling by
Only then can rob from me your part
That was my dream and love in paradise



Alone On Moonlight Bay (Larry W. Jones 07/24/2004) (song#3263)

 

As I watch the tiki fire die
I see the tropic stars up in the sky
And hear the waves on moonlight bay
I can feel the tiki fire’s flame
Hear the tradewinds softly call your name
As I dream of you so far away

I’m not used to being without you
I guess I need you all the time
Only three days and I’m dreaming about you
With sadness in this heart of mine

But when I close my eyes
I see you in paradise
And I can feel you near me
I wonder if you can hear me
When my heart for you cries

Cause I’m not used to being without you
I guess I need you all the time
Only three days and I’m dreaming about you
With sadness in this heart of mine

I watch the tiki fire die
See the tropic stars up in the sky
Dreaming of you, alone on moonlight bay
Dreaming of you, alone on moonlight bay



Recipe For Island Love (Larry W. Jones 07/24/2004) (song#3264)

 

The tropic sun shines on her hair
Warms the flower and the smile she wears
She’s all I’ve been dreaming of
She’s my recipe for island love

From the corners of my mind
I can hear sweet Maui chimes
She’s a dream that’s reality
She’s my recipe for island love

My recipe for island love
She has everything and more beside
She’s all I’ve been dreaming of
All the love my heart can hold inside

I blink my eyes to see if she is real
Pinch myself to know if I can feel
She’s all I’ve been dreaming of
She’s my recipe for island love

From the corners of my mind
I can hear sweet Maui chimes
She’s a dream that’s reality
She’s my recipe for island love

I blink my eyes to see if she is real
Pinch myself to know if I can feel
She’s all I’ve been dreaming of
She’s my recipe for island love



I’ll Be There (Larry W. Jones 07/24/2004) (song#3265)

 

No matter where you go
Even if you wander to a distant land
Here’s one thing that you must know
I’ll be there close at hand

I’ll be there when the islands call
To see you through in all you do
I’ll be there in the early morn
I’ll be there when it’s night time too

You’ll not forget warm island sand
And the love that we two share
All I ask is to be your island man
My song of love is in the tradewind air

I’ve watched you grow where tradewinds blow
An island rose so sweet and rare
My love for you is something you will know
My song of love is in the tradewind air

I’ll be there when the islands call
To see you through in all you do
I’ll be there in the early morn
I’ll be there when it’s night time too

You’ll not forget warm island sand
And the love that we two share
All I ask is to be your island man
My song of love is in the tradewind air



My Island Treasure (Larry W. Jones 07/24/2004) (song#3266)

 

Here comes my island treasure
Here comes my reason to sing

I see her footsteps slowly strolling
As she gracefully walks along the shore
And in the tradewind a song is softly tolling
That says she’ll be mine for evermore

Here comes sweet love without measure
Here comes the girl of my dreams
Here comes my island treasure
Here comes my reason to sing

My love for her will last through the ages
We’ll spend happy years on this shore
In history books we’ll fill up the pages
With true love that will last for evermore

Here comes my island treasure
Here comes my reason to sing

Here comes sweet love without measure
Here comes the girl of my dreams
Here comes my island treasure
Here comes my reason to sing



She And I (Larry W. Jones 07/24/2004) (song#3267)

 

We like to stroll in the sand together
She and I
She and I
Our love will brave all stormy weather
She and I
She and I

On this isle there’s so much we can do
And when there’s not, the ocean is our view
What we’ve got is a love that’s true
That’s why we call it paradise
She and I
She and I

The rest of the world can have its emptiness
It’s not for riches that we strive
She and I will find our happiness
In love that will always stay alive

On this isle there’s so much we can do
And when there’s not, the ocean is our view
What we’ve got is a love that’s true
That’s why we call it paradise
She and I
That’s why we call it paradise
She and I



And The Island Sings (Larry W. Jones 07/24/2004) (song#3268)

We say Aloha and the island sings
The island sings a song I’ve never heard before
We say Aloha and the island sings
With music made for love on every island shore

The setting should not be rearranged
Moonlight on the water looks like gold was poured
There’s nothing that I would ever change
Except the name of one whom I adore

We say Aloha and the island sings
Just a little tradewind murmur as it starts
We say Aloha and the island sings
And it rings with island music in our hearts

The setting should not be rearranged
Moonlight on the water looks like gold was poured
There’s nothing that I would ever change
Except the name of one whom I adore

We say Aloha and the island sings
Just a little tradewind murmur as it starts
We say Aloha and the island sings
And it rings with island music in our hearts



Never Be That Way (Larry W. Jones 07/24/2004) (song#3269)

 

I will never make you cry
Darling, I could never be that way
If there’s ever clouds in paradise
My love will make them go away

Flowers will come with any tropic rain
Sweet tuberoses will grow down by the bay
So, any tears you shed won’t be in vain
I’ll be here to kiss them all away

You and I will see it through
You’ve got me and I’ve got you
Tomorrow will be another happy day
I could never break your heart
Darling, I could never be that way

Flowers will come with any tropic rain
Sweet tuberoses will grow down by the bay
So, any tears you shed won’t be in vain
I’ll be here to kiss them all away

You and I will see it through
You’ve got me and I’ve got you
Tomorrow will be another happy day
I could never break your heart
Darling, I could never be that way



Exactly You (Larry W. Jones 07/25/2004) (song#3270)

 

Now I know why I’ve been waiting
For a dream to come true
For now it seems it’s translating
Into exactly you

I never had to spend money
On a mail order bride
I have found my island honey
On the incoming tide

You look grand in island sand
Here where tradewinds blow
Now I know you’ll understand
And I want the world to know
That every little scheme of mine
And every little dream of mine
Has finally come true
Into exactly you

I never had to spend money
On a mail order bride
I have found my island honey
On the incoming tide

My dear old mama told me
Speak words of love truthfully
And truthfully here by the sea
My dream has come true
Into exactly you



Hiding Behind The Moon (Larry W. Jones 07/25/2004) (song#3271)

 

Somewhere I can hear island music
And it’s more than just a tune
It sounds like it’s from heaven
Up there hiding behind the moon
I can see that golden moon above
Up there in the velvet blue
It’s the moon I’ve been dreaming of
Playing an island tune for you

Somewhere I can hear island music
Coming almost from the stars
Somewhere in the starry heavens
On a moonbeam where you are
This magic night shall not depart
Unless you come down real soon
And if you don’t, you know my heart
Will be hiding with you behind the moon

Somewhere I can hear island music
And it’s more than just a tune
It sounds like it’s from heaven
Up there hiding behind the moon
This magic night shall not depart
Unless you come down real soon
And if you don’t, you know my heart
Will be hiding with you behind the moon



Lydialani Only You (Larry W. Jones 07/25/2004) (song#3272)

 

Every tropic star that shines above
Knows without a doubt the one I love
Lydialani is my only love, it’s true
Lydialani, only you

The man in the moon above paradise
Knows I love her and all the reasons why
Lydialani is my only love, it’s true
Lydialani, only you

Nobody else could ever share my dreams
Nobody else in all the island scenes
Without her love, I’d not know what to do
She’s everything to me and that is true

In my heart she’s always been mine
Lydialani lives in my heart all the time
Lydialani is my only love, it’s true
Lydialani, only you

The man in the moon above paradise
Knows I love her and all the reasons why
Nobody else could ever share my dreams
Nobody else in all the island scenes

In my heart she’s always been mine
Lydialani lives in my heart all the time
Lydialani is my only love, it’s true
Lydialani, only you
Lydialani, only you



I’ll Sail On Down (Larry W. Jones 07/25/2004) (song#3273)

 

Every day I let my mem’ry stray
Far away to where soft tradewinds play
And when the velvet twilight time comes around
I hear the islands call as darkness falls
With the sound of Maui chimes in old Lahaina town

In my mem’ry I still see the day
When Aloha was the word I heard her say
Tenderly I held and kissed her
And to this day my heart has missed her
There beside old Lahaina’s bay

I found my love in old Lahaina town
There beside the bay
I left my love in old Lahaina town
When I sailed away

In my mem’ry I still see the day
When Aloha was the word I heard her say
Tenderly I held and kissed her
And to this day my heart has missed her
There beside old Lahaina’s bay

Now from dawn until the sun goes down
I dream of her in old Lahaina town
So, I guess I’ll sail on down
Back to my love in old Lahaina town



E Ku’u Nani Pua Lei (Larry W. Jones 07/25/2004) (song#3274)

 

On this isle is my ku’u ipo sweetheart
Nani wahini that I am longing for
Hele mai ku’u ipo and be a part
Of my life on this golden shore

Your sweet love is very dear to me
Aloha is the word that you impart
Your sweet smile is nice to see
For it shows love’s work of art

E ku’u nani pua lei
Garland made with gentle hands
My sweet flower, oh please stay
Here with me in island sands

I’m overwhelmed by all your charms
Our love will surely find a way
Hele mai ku’u ipo into my arms
And never must you go away

Ha’ina ‘ia mai kapuana la
E ku’u ipo nani lei
Hele mai and say you’ll stay
With me forever and a day



Anywhere I Go (Larry W. Jones 07/25/2004) (song#3275)

 

When I left old Lahaina town
I thought a better place I’d find
But by the time the sun went down
Your memory was on my mind
Anywhere I’ll go, I know it’s true
I can’t go anywhere from missing you

I got tired of Bangalore
And undesired was Singapore
Sailed to Gibraltar’s shore
But I only wanted you the more
Anywhere I’ll go, I know it’s true
I can’t go anywhere from missing you

I thought travel was all romance
But islands called all the way from France
I saw lots of faces
The old world’s quaint old places
But I found nothing there for me
My love was home back in old Maui
Anywhere I’ll go, I know it’s true
I can’t go anywhere from missing you

So, I’m boarding the boat again
Returning back to where I’ve been
Aloha ‘oe to the shores of France
I’m not taking any more of chance
Aloha ‘oe to old London town
I’ll trade it all for old Lahaina town
Anywhere I’ll go, I know it’s true
I can’t go anywhere from missing you
Anywhere I’ll go, I know it’s true
I can’t go anywhere from missing you



Just Make Believe (Larry W. Jones 07/25/2004) (song#3276)

 

Just make believe and you won’t be blue
Make believe you’re on an island too
You’ll be happy and never grieve
If you just make believe

Anyone can dream a haughty dream
And it’s not such a naughty scheme
Anything is yours when you weave
Even love if you just make believe

You may find an island where you can share
A love that you can call your own
She’ll be wearing a flower in her hair
And welcome you to her tropic zone

Just make believe that this melody
Is sung by you and me in harmony
And on an island we will find
A love that’s endless as the sea
And a peaceful place to ease your mind
If you just make believe

And on an island we will find
A love that’s endless as the sea
And a peaceful place to ease your mind
If you just make believe



Serenade Of You And Me (Larry W. Jones 07/25/2004) (song#3277)

 

Composers and singers serenade the same old tune
To ku’u ipo sweethearts of every hue
But darling, you and I can serenade the moon
With little things composers and singers never knew

Darling, we know why Hawaii has skies of blue
And why birds of paradise sing by the sea
And why Aloha really does mean I love you
Island romance is a serenade of you and me

The song that we compose is a brand new tune
A musician knows it’s a brand new key
Our serenade of love by the blue lagoon
Is a brand new song of love for you and me

Composers and singers serenade the same old tune
To ku’u ipo sweethearts of every hue
But darling, you and I can serenade the moon
With little things composers and singers never knew

Darling, we know why Hawaii has skies of blue
And why birds of paradise sing by the sea
And why Aloha really does mean I love you
Island romance is a serenade of you and me



Love Song To You (Larry W. Jones 07/25/2004) (song#3278)

 

If I were ever to fall in love again
It would be with an island siren
Her love I would be inspired to win
Her heart I’d require too

I’m sure there’s been better poets
But I would rather just show it
So that my love, you’ll know it
In this love song to you

You’re the reason my heart sings
It’s the season that true love brings
When I’m asleep I dream of you
I never count sheep, it’s true

I’m sure there’s been better poets
But I would rather just show it
So that my love, you’ll know it
In this love song to you

Each time I feel your arms around me
Maui chimes set off alarms profoundly
You’re my true blue tropic star
You’re what drew me from afar
You are my ku’u ipo love



Kiss On Kalakaua Avenue (Larry W. Jones 07/25/2004) (song#3279)

 

When first I kissed you
On Kalakaua avenue
My heart sang a refrain
That would never come again

The moon was in the sky
Aloha ‘oe meant goodbye
Our song of love was on the wane
It ended with a sigh

Where is the love song that we knew
Is it as strong as when brand new
What went wrong and where are you

The moon was in the sky
Aloha ‘oe meant goodbye
Our song of love was on the wane
It ended with a sigh

I must find that bliss we lost
Never mind what it may cost
I reminisce of our first kiss
On Kalakaua avenue



Strolling By Starlight Bay (Larry W. Jones 07/25/2004) (song#3280)

 

(Strolling in the sand, strolling by Starlight Bay)

We were strolling in the sand by Starlight Bay
Tradewinds were softly whisp’ring
As palm trees swayed
“It is time for love to start”
“It’s the island way”
As we strolled slowly in the sand by Starlight Bay

(We were strolling in the sand by Starlight Bay)
(Tradewinds were softly whisp’ring)
(As palm trees swayed)
“It is time for love to start”
“It’s the island way”
(As we strolled slowly in the sand by Starlight Bay)

We were strolling in the sand by Starlight Bay
Tradewinds were softly whisp’ring
As palm trees swayed
“It is time for love to start” (It is time for love to start)
“It’s the island way”
As we strolled slowly in the sand by Starlight Bay
(Strolling slowly in the sand by Starlight Bay)



Softly In The Island Sand (Larry W. Jones 07/25/2004) (song#3281)

 

Softly in the island sand
My heart responds to love’s command
As I hear the tradewinds call my name
From out of the blue
It’s calling me to return to you
With that same old familiar refrain

I can see you in all my dreams
But you’re always out of reach, it seems
Oh, why can’t I ever touch your face
Or feel the warmth of your embrace
Eternally, it will always be the same
When tradewinds softly call my name
To return to you again

Softly in the island sand
My heart responds to love’s command
As I hear the tradewinds call my name
From out of the blue
It’s calling me to return to you
With that same old familiar refrain

Oh, why can’t I ever touch your face
Or feel the warmth of your embrace
Eternally, it will always be the same
When tradewinds softly call my name
To return to you again

Eternally, it will always be the same
When tradewinds softly call my name
To return to you again



Why Can’t Today Be Yesterday (Larry W. Jones 07/25/2004) (song#3282)

 

Yesterday, I felt your fingertips
And when I felt your sweet sweet lips
I fell in love with you yesterday

Yesterday, I felt your heart down by the bay
I felt the world like palm trees sway
Why can’t today be yesterday

Today I’m here and all alone
Gone is the dream that I had known
Why was island love postponed

Yesterday, I felt your fingertips
And when I felt you sweet sweet lips
I fell in love with you yesterday

Yesterday, I felt your heart down by the bay
I felt the world like palm trees sway
Why can’t today be yesterday

Yesterday, Aloha ‘oe meant goodbye
My broken heart was left in paradise
Will it be forever that I say
Why can’t today be yesterday



By The Moonlit Bay (Larry W. Jones 07/25/2004) (song#3283)

 

Love here by the moonlit bay
When heaven itself isn’t far away
Finds the tradewind softly sobbing
Like island steel guitars
The music of two hearts throbbing
Underneath the tropic stars

Love here by the moonlit bay
Is like an island lullaby
Like a dream that won’t fade away
From this paradise

Tomorrow it will be as sweet again
The splendor, love’s story that we know
And every time we meet again
The splendor, love’s story still will grow

But love is here and now
By the moonlit bay
When heaven itself isn’t far away
So, let’s forget about tomorrow
Here and now is the hour that’s new
For our love to bloom and flower
Here by the moonlit bay with you



I Paid The Piper (Larry W. Jones 07/25/2004) (song#3284)

In the merry month of April
April played the pipe
And it set my heart to dance
It came as a surprise
I found myself in paradise
With my arms full of island romance

Yes, in the merry month of April
April played the pipe
And I fell in love with the tune
And when the time was ripe
My dream and I floated to the moon

Then the merry month of May came
But it didn’t seem the same
And when the month of June was nigh
The moon of June soon winked an evil eye

Then there came a big regression
I still see that sorrowful expression
On the face of July

Yes, April played the pipe
May just didn’t seem the same
The moon in June winked an evil eye
Like it was a funny game
But here’s the one and only funny part
I paid the piper
With my one and only broken heart



Cold Cold Wind (Larry W. Jones 07/26/2004) (song#3285)

 

Cold wind, blowing down my back again
But when I return
To the island where I yearn
There will be a warm breeze again
Instead of this cold, cold wind

And there’s a cold moon
Asking me if I’ll return soon
And when I return
That’s when I will learn
That the tropic moon is gold in June
Instead of this cold, cold moon

My skies will be bright again
Just as they were before
Paradise will feel right again
When I return to your shore

And when I return
That’s when I will learn
That the tropic moon is gold in June
Instead of this cold, cold moon

Then I won’t feel cold wind again
Moonbeams will be gold and warm
And I will feel the fold of your arms again
Instead of this cold, cold wind



Just A-Strolling Along (Larry W. Jones 07/26/2004) (song#3286)

I’m strolling in an island world
Just a-strolling along
Just a-strolling along

I’m telling the news to the world
Just a-singing a song
Just a-singing a song

I just heard those sweet Maui chimes
I love it when the islands call
My island girl said yes, yes this time
And like humpty dumpty on the wall
I’m about to fall

I’m strolling in an island world
Just a-strolling along
Just a-strolling along

My island girl said yes, yes this time
And like humpty dumpty on the wall
I’m about to fall

I’m telling the news to the world
Just a-singing a song
Just a-singing a song



I Left My Heart (Larry W. Jones 07/26/2004) (song#3287)

 

I went on vacation to an island in the sea
That’s where I guess I lost my mind
But I really didn’t mind, you see
Cause that’s where I lost something from the start
I lost my mind and left behind my heart

I left my heart on that island shore
With a cute wahini named Leanore
I kept buying all her leis
Until all her leis were gone
Yeah, I kept buying all her leis
Until that cute wahini finally caught on

Now I’m back on the mainland feeling sore
And everyone who’s done it knows the score
A mainland guy without a heart
Can’t figure out where to start
Cause I left my heart on that island shore

I left my heart on that island shore
With a cute wahini named Leanore
I kept buying all her leis
Until all her leis were gone
Yeah, I kept buying all her leis
Until that cute wahini finally caught on

A mainland guy without a heart
Can’t figure out where to start
Cause I left my heart on that island shore



Smilin’ Island Maui (Larry W. Jones 07/26/2004) (song#3288)

 

Well, I’m here feelin’ low
That’s why I wanna go
Back where tradewinds blow
On the isle where I belong

Way over in blue Hawaii
Down to old Maui
There’s a place where island folks all go
To feast and dance the night away

They all come from many miles
And they all wear their Aloha styles
It’s an old luau they hold down by the bay
Where they feast and dance til break of day

It’s an island where the folks all meet you
And they’ll be smilin’ when they greet you

They say, come on down, breath the air
In old Lahaina town, you’ll find me there
So long to my frown
I’m leavin’, I avow
To that smilin’ island Maui now

It’s an island where the folks all meet you
And they’ll be smilin’ when they greet you

They say, come on down, breath the air
In old Lahaina town, you’ll find me there
So long to my frown
I’m leavin’, I avow
To that smilin’ island Maui now

I’m leavin’, I avow
To that smilin’ island Maui now



Tonight Kaiulani (Larry W. Jones 07/26/2004) (song#3289)

 

Tonight Kaiulani
Island magic smiles on you
One little kiss here by the sea
Means Aloha I love you

I hear the tradewinds saying
Your sweet name to me
While coco palms are swaying
Like the rhythms of the sea

The stars up high in paradise
Shine their love on you tonight
While the man in the moon just sighs
Glad that he can spread moonlight

I hear the tradewinds saying
Your sweet name to me
While coco palms are swaying
Like the rhythms of the sea

Sweet will be my dreams Kaiulani
As tuberoses kissed by dew
One more goodnight kiss Kaiulani
Kaiulani, Aloha I love you



Parahi Ia (Larry W. Jones 07/26/2004) (song#3290)

 

As the tropic sun sets slowly in the west
Moonlight shines down on Taravao valley rose
Otu’u birds of Tahiti settle in their nests
Soon all Polynesia will be sleeping in repose

And now, my love, has come the hour
When we must say parahi ia, goodbye
For soon I will be sailing, my tiare flower
Far away across the sea so wide
But while I’m away, love, I’ll dream of you
And when I return, my love will still be true

It’s sad that lovers often have to part
Kiss me parahi ia to ease my sorrow
Here on the isle, I leave with you my heart
But soon I’ll return to a glad tomorrow

But now, my love, has come the hour
When we must say parahi ia, goodbye
For soon I will be sailing, my tiare flower
Far away across the sea so wide
But while I’m away, love, I’ll dream of you
And when I return, my love will still be true



That’s My Sailin’ Song (Larry W. Jones 07/30/2004) (song#3291)

See those ‘ol whitecaps out on the ocean
Seems like they’re all I’ve ever known
But sailin’s been my life and my devotion
And so I just keep goin’ on

No use in complainin’ or bewailin’
When all you gain is just more sailin’
So I just say Mahalo as I sail along
And that’s my sailin’ song
That’s my sailin’ song

Sometimes I think of friends I’ve known somewhere
And all those memories they had me share
Most of them are back on some island paradise
I set the sails for starboard tack and pay the price
And so I just keep goin’ on

No use in complainin’ or bewailin’
When all you gain is just more sailin’
So I just say Mahalo as I sail along
And that’s my sailin’ song
That’s my sailin’ song

So I just say Mahalo as I sail along
And that’s my sailin’ song
That’s my sailin’ song



What I Was Looking For (Larry W. Jones 07/30/2004) (song#3292)

I roamed the world looking for excitement
Anything to make my heart feel its imprint
What I was looking for was something new
But what it was I guess I never really knew

But when I found your love I found excitement
Strolling hand in hand leaving footprints
What I was looking for was something new
What I was looking for was you

For you look like an island rose of springtime
That grows in a lovely tropic zone
You move to the rhythm of swaying Maui chimes
Paradise is where you look like you belong

You are the glow of the tropic moon and stars
The closest thing to heaven is what you are
I was looking for anything
Now I’ve found my everything
Cause everything I need is what you are

For you look like an island rose of springtime
That grows in a lovely tropic zone
You move to the rhythm of swaying Maui chimes
Paradise is where you look like you belong

You are the glow of the tropic moon and stars
The closest thing to heaven is what you are
I was looking for anything
Now I’ve found my everything
Cause everything I need is what you are



On Any Island (Larry W. Jones 07/30/2004) (song#3293)

 

Should you perceive two loving arms around you
And it happens to be in old Lahaina town too
It’s probably because my two arms surround you
On any island when you’re there

If you perceive a blissful kiss or two
And a song of love on the tradewind air
It’s probably my lips that kissed you too
On any island when you’re there

Down by the bay in island sand
If you stroll my way, I’ll hold your hand
And I’ll count your sheep when you’re awake
Cause I can’t sleep when my heart aches

It sure did take awhile to find you
On many isles with beauty rare
Now, my love will always be around you
On any island when you’re there

Down by the bay in island sand
If you stroll my way, I’ll hold your hand
And I’ll count your sheep when you’re awake
Cause I can’t sleep when my heart aches

It sure did take awhile to find you
On many isles with beauty rare
Now, my love will always be around you
On any island when you’re there

On any island when you’re there
Any island when you’re there



Envious Of Me (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2004) (song#3294)

 

Well, I was envious, is all I can say
When an island rose your lips kissed
And anytime I saw you down by the bay
If your eyes from mine strayed
I was envious of moments missed
I was envious, is all I can say

Now let’s suppose that the rose that your lips kissed
Were to tell me without telling lies
That I should know that your love only for me grows
Then I suppose I’d be in paradise

All island flowers love your rose colored cheeks
The tropic sun is envious of your smile
Birds of paradise start to sing when you speak
I suppose they’re envious of you here on the isle

Your polynesian eyes make starlight seem so pale
They’re envious in the skies of Hawaii
But if you ever tell me you’re all mine without fail
Then this whole world will be envious of me

Now let’s suppose that the rose that your lips kissed
Were to tell me without telling lies
That I should know that your love only for me grows
Then I suppose I’d be in paradise

Your polynesian eyes make starlight seem so pale
They’re envious in the skies of Hawaii
But if you ever tell me you’re all mine without fail
Then this whole world will be envious of me



Much Too Soon (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2004) (song#3295)

 

Much too soon
Aloha ‘oe meant we had to part
It came much too soon
The gloom that fell upon my heart
Much too soon, it seemed
Away went the dream I dreamed
Much too soon

Too much like honey
Was the taste of you being there
Island days were sunny
Love was in the air everywhere
It’s a shame but we can’t blame the moon
Our love song was gone
Much too soon

We both felt those same delights
On the island’s golden shore
But when I thought that you just might
Love only me for evermore
Somebody closed the door to the moon
Much too soon

Now, you know and I do too
That another try at love just might do
Cause we said Aloha ‘oe goodbye
Much too soon
Yeah, we said Aloha ‘oe
Much too soon



Sunlight On The Sails (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2004) (song#3296)

 

Outside the bay where tradewinds blow
When the tropic sun just starts to pale
The main mast will cast a lonely shadow
With sunlight on the sails

When it’s night and lands afar are callin’
And the ocean breeze turns into gales
On the rolling deck I’m sometimes crawlin’
Wishin’ there was sunlight on the sails

When the night is quiet, I hear the music
Of tradewinds strummin’ the lines like steel guitars
And nothing beats a polynesian moon a-climbin’
Up from the ocean to greet the stars

After a blow will come a peaceful mornin’
When the winds abate and a calm prevails
That when I can’t wait for the warmin’
Of sunlight on the sails

When the night is quiet, I hear the music
Of tradewinds strummin’ the lines like steel guitars
And nothing beats a polynesian moon a-climbin’
Up from the ocean to greet the stars

After a blow will come a peaceful mornin’
When the winds abate and a calm prevails
That when I can’t wait for the warmin’
Of sunlight on the sails
Of sunlight on the sails



Loving You Forever (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2004) (song#3297)

 

I know I’ll be loving you, forever
Where tradewinds blow
That will be true, forever

And if you ever need a helping hand
I’ll be there strolling in the sand
Please understand, it will be forever
Forever

I know life won’t play fair, forever
That’s why I say I’ll be there, forever

It won’t be a day, month or year
Forever I’ll want you to be near
Nothing can my love for you sever
Forever

And if you ever need a helping hand
I’ll be there strolling in the sand
Please understand, it will be forever
Forever

It won’t be a day, month or year
Forever I’ll want you to be near
Nothing can my love for you sever
Forever



Ku’u Lei Lehua (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2004) (song#3298)

 

Mai Kaua’i mai ku’u lei lehua
My lehua lei comes from Kaua’i
From the garden isle she comes to me
Hele mai ku’u nani lei lehua
Come to me my lovely lehua lei

Mai Kaua’i mai ku’u lei lehua
Maka uliuli ko nane mahinalani
Her brown eyes shine
As bright as the heavenly moon
And every star in paradise
Is in ku’u lei lehua’s eyes

The tropic sunrise of the morning
Rises to kiss the flowers rare
And a fragrant flower is there adorning
An island miss with flowing hair

Mai Kaua’i mai ku’u lei lehua
My lehua lei comes from Kaua’i
Sweet dreams are what she does bestir
My lehua lei comes from Kaua’i
My pleasant dreams are all of her

Ha’ina ‘ia mai ka puana la
Let the refrain be told
Of ku’u lei lehua mai Kaua’i
Ha’ina ‘ia mai ka puana la mau loa
Let the refrain be told forever



Rainbows Over The Island (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2004) (song#3299)

Rainbows over the island
Rainbows are what rain becomes
Rainbows coming to bless a man
Just when you thought they’d never come

Strolling down the island road
Worries that I’d never known
When just about to drop my load
Rainbows over my island home

Now I don’t worry about tomorrows
Wouldn’t do no good any way
Something comes to ease my sorrows
Rainbows shining above the bay

Rainbows over the island
Rainbows are what rain becomes
Rainbows coming to bless a man
Just when you thought they’d never come

Now I don’t worry about tomorrows
Wouldn’t do no good any way
Something comes to ease my sorrows
Rainbows shining above the bay

Rainbows over the island
Rainbows are what rain becomes
Rainbows coming to bless a man
Just when you thought they’d never come



Thirty Three Hundred (Larry W. Jones 07/317/2004) (song#3300)

 

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

If you ever ask me how long for you my love will be
Thirty three hundred lifetimes, then we would wait and see
If I could do it over, not a thing would I ever change
I could sing you island songs of love that I’ve arranged

If you ever ask me how deep for you my love will be
I can only tell you that my love is deeper than the sea
Thirty three hundred fathoms down lives cousin Davy Jones
Says I’ve got more songs to write about these tropic zones

Thirty three hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Thirty three 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 three hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun



That Old Hawaiian Lullaby (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2004) (song#3301)

My ears hear an island mele floating by
When twilight the tropic evening brings
It’s that old Hawaiian lullaby
The topic of my island dreams

There beside the garden island stream
I found my love in paradise
Now every island song still brings
That old Hawaiian lullaby

That old refrain can bring me pain
When I think of her so sweet and shy
But oh, how I love to hear again
That old Hawaiian lullaby

It’s the whisper of a voice I love
We were so in love, she and I
I left, but I can’t take leave of
That old Hawaiian lullaby

My ears hear an island mele floating by
A song from blue Hawaiian skies
On sweet dreams of her I now rely
That old Hawaiian lullaby



Polynesian Eyes Divine (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2004) (song#3302)

 

Polynesian eyes divine
That to me is what your eyes define
Soft as the sound of Maui chimes
Someday I hope to find they are
My dream come true from isles afar

Polynesian eyes divine
Flaunting polynesian eyes from paradise
Haunting all my dreams with scenes so nice
Someday I hope that they adore
This heart I give you on this shore

I’ve always had the feeling I would find
The secret of the stars up in the skies
Now I see in polynesian eyes divine
Those secrets are no longer in disguise

Polynesian eyes divine
My lips are yearning now to know
Will they be learning from the glow
Of your sweet kiss like ruby wine
When will I see that you are mine
Polynesian eyes divine



At Sunrise (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2004) (song#3303)

 

At sunrise
Another day in paradise
The hazy mist out on the bay
Is lazily drifting out of the way

Because it’s sunrise
The tropic sun is in the sky
Time to open sleepy eyes
And face delights of one more day
In paradise

At sunrise
Sweet tuberoses are breaking through
With petals open full of dew
How lovely it all seems at sunrise
From my cottage window, blue skies
And clouds as white as satin drifting through
At sunrise in Hawaii blue
I awake at sunrise
And I daydream of you

How lovely it all seems at sunrise
From my cottage window, blue skies
And clouds as white as satin drifting through
At sunrise in Hawaii blue
I awake at sunrise
And I daydream of you



A Tall Blue Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2004) (song#3304)

 

It’s two in the morning
Where tradewinds blow
My heart is in mourning
Missing you so
Couples are strolling away toward the dawn
While I’m sitting here lingering on with

A tall blue Hawaii
Moonlight shadows and a tall blue Hawaii
I’m as blue as I can be
With just your memory

Bubbles appear
At two in the morning
It’s become very clear
Troubles are near
For a heart that’s in mourning for you

All those dreams that we talked about
All those strolls when we walked about
Now I know there’s no doubt about
The reason why I’m feeling blue
And a tall blue Hawaii
Can’t make me forget about you

It’s two in the morning
And that same old refrain
Didn’t need to give me warning
I knew it was too good to be true
And now my heart feels the pain
Of losing you
I’m bluer than a tall blue Hawaii
I’m blue over you



And Paradise As Well (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2004) (song#3305)

 

I feel the warmth of your lips
Your kiss is really heavenly
I see the sway of hula hips and I can tell
I’m in Shangri La by the sea
Cause all of this is mine and paradise as well

I feel the warmth of your arms
Your charms would make the angels sing
You’re the reason why my heart has taken wing
I’m in Shangri La and feeling swell
Cause all of this is mine and paradise as well

We stroll down by the bay
And view Mauna Kea capped with snow
Every tall palm tree
That sways where island breezes blow
Every little country lane in this tropic zone
Are byways that contain adventure
That picture love for you and me alone

As you pledge to me your love
I hear an island melody
It comes from somewhere up above
And also in this heart of me
Here on this isle with you I’ll always dwell
Cause all of this is mine and paradise as well



Only For Always (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2004) (song#3306)

 

How long will I stay with you
Here on this isle where breezes blow
Well, that’s easy, only for always
I just thought I’d let you know

Would I pay attention to your wishes
And not hide my face behind a mask
Well, all you’d have to do is mention them
And I would embrace just any task

If you were in the surf and you should call
How long would it take me to be in it
I wouldn’t take time to count the seconds at all
I’d be there in less than a minute

Only for always will I remember
When I first looked at you and you smiled
For when our years amount to late December
That smile will still have me beguiled

Only for always will I remember
When I first looked at you and you smiled
For when our years amount to late December
That smile will still have me beguiled



We’ll Weave Flower Leis (Larry W. Jones 07/31/2004) (song#3307)

 

We’ll weave flower leis on the isle again
And stroll together in the sand
Until our faces learn to smile again
When you return to this golden shore

And in the twilight by the tiki glow
I’ll hold you tight and never let you go
Until your eyes tell me what I want to know
When you return to this golden shore

We’ll weave flower leis on the isle again
And stroll together in the sand
Until our faces learn to smile again
When you return to this golden shore

And in the twilight by the tiki glow
I’ll hold you tight and never let you go
Until your eyes tell me what I want to know
When you return to this golden shore

When you return to this golden shore
When you return to this golden shore



Now And Again (Larry W. Jones 08/01/2004) (song#3308)

 

Now and again
Won’t you ponder over me
Though someone else may gain
Your heart there by the sea

Now and again
Won’t you wander back in time
And hear that sweet refrain
When you were only mine

And if, now and again, you remember
An ember of love that has waned
See if there’s a spark
That might give a brand new start
To the love that we once attained

Until then I’ll just wait
And hope it’s not too late
So, just think of me now and again
And I’ll let these memories
Sing their old sweet refrain
Now and again



Lei Of My Heart (Larry W. Jones 08/01/2004) (song#3309)

 

We’re the best consorts the isle ever knew
Living here by the sea
At times it’s hard to find words describing you
That mean all the world to me

You are the lei of my heart
You are my lover and wife
A flower lei that does not fall apart
I’ll hold your charms here in my arms
Lei of my heart

If sorrow should come and ruin a fine day
It’s rain and not tears from your eyes
A smile will return on your face to say
Our love still burns in this paradise

You are the lei of my heart
You are my lover and wife
A flower lei that does not fall apart
Where tradewinds are warm, love is the norm
Lei of my heart

Through good times and bad times, we always take care
To take time to show love that sometimes is rare
Through tears and then laughter, with your hand in mine
Our love will still be here after the ending of time

You are the lei of my heart
You are my lover and wife
A flower lei that does not fall apart
You are the flower of everything in my life
Lei of my heart
Lei of my heart



As Guitars Played Low (Larry W. Jones 08/01/2004) (song#3310)

 

We danced at the luau on our wedding night
Our vows of true love were said with delight
The island was in bloom, clear were the skies
The tropic stars and moon were clearly in your eyes

Ku’u ipo, sweetheart, I held you in my arms
Tradewinds were singing the spell of your charms
Two hearts were beating as guitars played low
Ku’u ipo, darling, I love you so

The night passed by quickly and then came the dawn
The tropic sun was warm as the dance lingered on
Whenever islands call with those sweet Maui chimes
We return again to renew our love for all times

Ku’u ipo, sweetheart, I held you in my arms
Tradewinds were singing the spell of your charms
Two hearts were beating as guitars played low
Ku’u ipo, darling, I love you so

Two hearts were beating as guitars played low
Ku’u ipo, darling, I love you so



Missed Another Sunset (Larry W. Jones 08/01/2004) (song#3311)

 

Well, I missed another sunset
Sitting here at my desk
I saw the gold where the sunbeams
And the high rise windows met

The sun set in the west
But I was facing east
Makes me wanna go in quest
Of islands where my soul can rest

Yeah, I missed another sunset
Sundown is such a lovely time
One of these days I’m gonna get
Over to old Lahaina town

Listen to sweet old Maui chimes
Gonna start saving dimes
Gonna start turning brown
Not gonna miss another sunset
Over in old Lahaina town

Yeah, I missed another sunset
Sundown is such a lovely time
One of these days I’m gonna get
Over to old Lahaina town

One of these days I’m gonna get
Over to old Lahaina town
Not gonna miss another sunset
Over in old Lahaina town



Another Island Another Time (Larry W. Jones 08/01/2004) (song#3312)

 

At Duke’s Canoe Club
In that famous Waikiki hub
Kimo was turning off the tiki lights
As I was dancing with you that night
And as they played the last island tune
I danced with you to Maui chimes
And the tradewind whispered all too soon
Another island, another time

Kimo stacked the chairs at closing time
Up on the tables, as they say
I wanted to stay and hear more guitars rhyme
But I knew they wouldn’t let me stay
Any place would be much better
Than my lonely room down by the shore
You’ve never even sent a letter
To my lonely room where I’m waiting for

Another island, another time
Another chance to call you mine
Another time to hold you close to me
This old lonely room of mine
Is no friend to me with these memories

This old lonely room of mine
Is no friend to me with these memories
What I need is
Another time to hold you close to me
Another chance to call you mine
Another island, another time



Kiho’alu Guitar Tune (Larry W. Jones 08/01/2004) (song#3313)

What’s that island tune I hear everywhere
I even hear it in the tradewind air
What’s that music island guitars play
Those melodies I hear every night and day
It sure ain’t what Beethoven wrote
It’s got a much more pleasant note
Well, just ask what they’ve been playing
And island folks will all be saying
It’s slack key guitar kiho’alu you hear

It’s a mellow guitar tune, with fellow feelings too
When you hear it, you’ll feel mellow too
Makes you sway like grass on a little grass shack
When they play, it runs up and down your back
It’s a lovely sort of guitar island strain
What it does to you, you can’t explain
But when those guitar strings are ringing near
Even the stars up there are singing
It’s slack key guitar kiho’alu you hear

More slack key kiho’alu, slack key kiho’alu
Another island guitar tune to make you swoon
More slack key kiho’alu, slack key kiho’alu
Under a yellow, fellow feeling, mellow moon
It’s a lovely sort of guitar island strain
What it does to you, you can’t explain
But when those guitar strings are ringing near
Even the stars up there are singing
It’s slack key guitar kiho’alu you hear
A slack key guitar mellow island tune



For You For Me (Larry W. Jones 08/01/2004) (song#3314)

 

For you
There will shine another tropic star
But for me
My only light is what you are

For you
There will come another island song
But for me
My heart will always sing for you alone

Long ago my heart had told me
That no other love would do
Now you’re gone from this island in the sea
Leaving my heart broken right in two
For you
My heart is broken right in two

For you
My love was just a waste of time
But for me
It tasted like the sweetest wine

For you
There will still be love to find today
But for me
Love is just a memory of yesterday

Long ago my heart had told me
That no other love would do
Now you’re gone from this island in the sea
Leaving my heart broken right in two
For you
My heart is broken right in two

For you
There will still be love to find today
But for me
Love is just a memory of yesterday



Respond To Me (Larry W. Jones 08/02/2004) (song#3315)

 

Respond to me, my love
What transgression do you charge me of
Tell me if you know thereof
I beg of you, my love

It was only yesterday you smiled at me
I believed our love was for eternity
As the islands planted in the sea
Please respond to me, my love

If your life is full of joy without me
Then my sorrow I will try to bear
But the heart of this island boy inside me
Will always love you anywhere

You once made my dreams come true
An island maid so lovely too
Perhaps tomorrow we can bond anew
Please respond to me, my love

You once made my dreams come true
An island maid so lovely too
Perhaps tomorrow we can bond anew
Please respond to me, my love
Respond to me, my love



Any Old Maui Road (Larry W. Jones 08/02/2004) (song#3316)

 

Well, my life was goin’ nowhere
The old rat race was way too fast
Didn’t want to face those future cares
But I didn’t want to live in the past

So, I figured all that matters
Was to find a place to breath new air
In Lahaina town I could unload all my tatters
Any old Maui road will take me there

A hui hou!, see you later
I’m movin’ on, to a tropic zone
A hui hou!, see you later
I’m movin’ down to Lahaina town
Any old Maui road will take me there

Well, I was like a piece of driftwood
Just movin’ with the tide
Never knew just where I stood
Let my dreams and reality collide

But that was before I met you
You set my anchor down with care
In Lahaina town my dreams came true
Any old Maui road will take me there

A hui hou!, see you later
I’m movin’ on, to a tropic zone
A hui hou!, see you later
I’m movin’ down to Lahaina town
Any old Maui road will take me there

A hui hou!, see you later
I’m movin’ on, to a tropic zone
A hui hou!, see you later
I’m movin’ down to Lahaina town
Any old Maui road will take me there



Anybody (Larry W. Jones 08/02/2004) (song#3317)

 

Anybody can have a dream or two
But not everybody’s dream comes true
Anybody could fall in love with you
And it’s true
You’re my dream and I’m in love with you

Anybody with a broken heart can see
That not everybody is as fortunate as me
Anybody could fall in love with you
And it’s true
You’re my dream and I’m in love with you

Among the moonbeams and the tropic stars
Love is gleaming anywhere you are
There’s no way to measure all my treasure
You’re the dream I love, that’s what you are

Anybody can yearn for a tropic zone
But not everybody can return to you alone
Anybody could fall in love with you
And it’s true
You’re my dream and I’m in love with you

Among the moonbeams and the tropic stars
You’re the dream I love, that’s what you are

Anybody can have a dream or two
But not everybody’s dream comes true
Anybody could fall in love with you
And it’s true
You’re my dream and I’m in love with you



And I’m So Glad (Larry W. Jones 08/02/2004) (song#3318)

 

Every day I feel I’m more in love with you
Here on this isle of love in oceans blue
I feel it in your arms, see it in your charms
You’re the reason why my dreams came true

You couldn’t be just anyone at all
You had to be the one where islands call
You’re the one who made my heart fall
And I’m so glad the one who did was you

I thought love wasn’t in the plan for me
Then you came strolling in the sand by the sea
You’re the one who came to my rescue
And I’m so glad the one who did was you

You couldn’t be just anyone at all
You had to be the one where islands call
You’re the one who made my heart fall
And I’m so glad the one who did was you

Aloha ‘oe is a word that means goodbye
And Aloha is a word that means hello and hi
Your Aloha was a word from paradise
Your words of love are what caused my heart to fly

You couldn’t be just anyone at all
You had to be the one where islands call
You’re the one who made my heart fall
And I’m so glad the one who did was you



Hano Hano (Larry W. Jones 08/03/2004) (song#3319)

 

Down by the bay at Hanalei
We go to stray in the afterglow
Of the evening twilight show
Just my own true love and I, real slow

The evening sky is all afire
With the clouds of gold against the blue
And I know the stars in heaven’s one desire
Is to be strolling in my shoes with you

Hano hano napo’ona lâ, lâ kau
Hano hano haku mahinalani
Glorious is the setting sun
Glorious is the rising heavenly moon

You are the warmth of the setting sun
You are the glory of the rising moon
You are everything, my only one
Like the melody of an island tune

Hano hano napo’ona lâ, lâ kau
Hano hano haku mahinalani
Glorious you are as we stray
Down by the bay at Hanalei



Lonesome Sailor (Larry W. Jones 08/03/2004) (song#3320)

 

Well, I’m just a lonesome sailor
And I’m sailing all alone
Feel like I’m locked up by a jailer
Away from my dear old island home

Just beyond the horizon lies my island
And I can hear it calling me
Raise the sails and fly you lonesome sailor
For you know that she’s your destiny

In my dreams the moonlight looks so pretty
Rising from the sea not very far
How long will I nurse this old self pity
Will I ever catch that falling star

Sail, sail, sail along, lonesome sailor
Wail, wail, wail a song, lonesome sailor

Will I ever leave this lonesome ocean
And will I ever see that love light shine
Gotta find what’s over that horizon
Gotta find that island dream of mine

Well, I’m just a lonesome sailor
And I’m sailing all alone
If I never find my island baby
I will forever sail alone



So Marvelous (Larry W. Jones 08/04/2004) (song#3321)

 

As we stroll hand in hand
In the island sand of Waikiki
A song comes on the tradewind air
I turn to you and see love in your eyes
And violins begin to serenade us there
Then we hear those sweet Maui chimes
It’s marvelous, marvelous
Oh, so marvelous to know that you are mine

Sometimes we just sit at the Helumoa cafe
And view the beauty of the tropic skies
You turn to me, and without words, you hear me say
Everything Aloha means, you are in paradise
Just being with you is so divine
It’s marvelous, marvelous
Oh, so marvelous to know that you are mine

The islands are filled with marvelous things, old and new
And my heart is thrilled with this new island love of you

In the quiet twilight at the ebbing tide
Our whole world is like an island song
When my arms are curled around you at my side
I know your charms are the pleasures that I own
I will love you until the very end of time
It’s marvelous, marvelous
Oh, so marvelous to know that you are mine

I will love you until the very end of time
It’s marvelous, marvelous
Oh, so marvelous to know that you are mine



My Kailani Marie (Larry W. Jones 08/07/2004) (song#3322)

 

Tonight as the raindrops are falling
I dream of that girl by the sea
Warm island tradewinds are calling
Where I strolled with Kailani Marie

Kailani Marie, Kailani Marie
Girl from polynesian paradise
Kailani Marie, Kailani Marie
For you my heart still sighs
I miss you, my Kailani Marie

True love, distance cannot smother
That I knew as I sailed ‘ore the sea
Your love can’t be replaced by another
Pilialoha, ku’u ipo, Kailani Marie

Kailani Marie, Kailani Marie
Girl from polynesian paradise
Kailani Marie, Kailani Marie
For you my heart still sighs
I miss you, my Kailani Marie

Kailani Marie, Kailani Marie
For you my heart still sighs
I miss you, my Kailani Marie



That Someone Named You (Larry W. Jones 08/07/2004) (song#3323)

 

If I made me a fortune
Writing songs of tradewinds
And if fame I finally won
What good would it serve me to win
For something is missing
Something that makes me feel blue
That something is someone named you

My island love songs are greeted
By applause and welcome acclaim
At the luau my music is treated
With honor as my name they proclaim
But something still is missing
In each love song that I go through
There’s something no longer existing
That something is someone named you

Where is that something for me
Where is that someone named you
When will I ever see
That something, that someone named you

In an oyster there grows a fine pearl
Where tradewinds blow is an island girl
I always dreamed I could find her
But something’s still missing, it’s true
Something that makes my heart stir
That something is someone named you

Where is that something for me
Where is that someone named you
When will I ever see
That something, that someone named you



Sweet Moanalani (Larry W. Jones 08/07/2004) (song#3324)

 

Manoa valley is a place bonnie
Where falls the fresh morning dew
And there my sweet Moanalani
Promised her love to me true
Promised her love to me true

And my love for her will ever be
For my sweet Moanalani
Is the only true love for me

Her hair blows in tradewind air
Her smile is fresh as the dawn
Her face is bonnie and fair
On her the sun has shone on
On her the sun has shone on

And my love for her will ever be
For my sweet Moanalani
Is the only true love for me

Like birds of paradise on the wing
Is our song of love when we meet
And tradewinds, love songs they sing
Just as her voice, lowly and sweet
Just as her voice, lowly and sweet

And my love for her will ever be
For my sweet Moanalani
Is the only true love for me



One More Cup Of Kona Coffee (Larry W. Jones 08/07/2004) (song#3325)

One more cup of Kona coffee
Filled up with regret
One more night of memories
Just trying to forget
Remembering how empty arms
Once held you so tight
One more cup of Kona coffee
One more lonely island night

Listen to love songs at the luau
Every one a sad sad island song
Drinkin’ Kona coffee and just thinkin’
About a dream that went all wrong
And when you used to say Aloha
I thought our future looked so bright
One more cup of Kona coffee
One more lonely island night

Here on this island in the sea
You strolled far away from me
Now ain’t it plain for you to see
You are the cause of my misery

Someone else now holds you
Some other island guy
Someone else’s arms enfold you
While I sit here and cry
Sweetheart, please return to me
You know it’s only right
One more cup of Kona coffee
One more lonely island night

Sweetheart, please return to me
You know it’s only right
One more cup of Kona coffee
One more lonely island night



When Next I Come Round (Larry W. Jones 08/07/2004) (song#3326)

 

In eighteen forty three, our ship set to sea
From the fair valley isle of old Maui
To the wild arctic bound if we didn’t drown
And our harpoons and sea bags we carried

In the face of trusty tradewinds
We set the rusty belaying pins
As to our sweethearts we waved in sorrow
The mainsails we unfurled as o’re the waters we hurled
Already dreaming of returning tomorrow

Oh, when next I come ’round, I’ll settle down
With my island sweetheart in old Maui
Oh, when next I come ’round, in old Lahaina town
I’ll settle down and my sweetheart I’ll marry

At the four o’clock bell, our bow met the swell
And our ship waltzed as a moth drawn to tiki lights
Whitecaps raged high as the typhoon roared by
And some went to meet Davy Jones in the twilight

Six months out at sea but few whales there be
And our companions we buried each morning
We hear Maui chimes lost somewhere in time
As we sail the cold arctic with sun never dawning

Oh, when next I come ’round, I’ll settle down
With my island sweetheart in old Maui
Oh, when next I come ’round, in old Lahaina town
I’ll settle down and my sweetheart I’ll marry

Oh, when next I come ’round, in old Lahaina town
I’ll settle down and my sweetheart I’ll marry



Gold Is The Love (Larry W. Jones 08/07/2004) (song#3327)

 

Trust me, if all your delightful island charms
Which I see so clearly and fondly today
Were to alter tomorrow from time’s guilty arms
And as a mist of the isle, go fading away

You will still be adored as a fine work of art
So, let time do it’s work as it will
You will not be ignored here deep in mine heart
For my vows to you, I will always fulfill

Fresh island beauty and youth you do own
And your face hasn’t known of a tear
Only by time can a true love be known
And in time you will see my love is still near

You will still be adored as a fine work of art
So, let time do it’s work as it will
You will not be ignored here deep in mine heart
For my vows to you, I will always fulfill

A heart filled with true love never forgets
But it keeps on loving til life is at close
As the tropical sun on the island it sets
That gold is the love for my island rose

As the tropical sun on the island it sets
That gold is the love for my island rose



Aloha Oe Parting Glass (Larry W. Jones 08/07/2004) (song#3328)

 

Of all the time that e’re I have spent
Most of it’s been out on the sea
Tis the only crime that e’re came to my tent
But alas, I can blame none but me

So, ‘fore the ring of the bell made of brass
That to the sea once more will call
Fill for me the Aloha ‘oe parting glass
And goodnight and good joy to ye all

If money I had to throw around
And time enough to stay for awhile
A fair island maid in Lahaina town
One who has my heart beguiled
Her hula hips and warm ruby lips
A day to marry her I would call
But alas
Fill for me the Aloha ‘oe parting glass
And goodnight and good joy to ye all

All my island friends that e’re I’ve had
Say they’re sorry that again I sail away
And the sweetest sweetheart of this island lad
Says she wishes that I could but stay

But now time, it has fallen upon my lot
The call of the sea once more has been wrought
So, alas
Fill for me the Aloha ‘oe parting glass
And goodnight and good joy to ye all



Love On The Lurline (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2004) (song#3329)

 

I found island love on the Lurline
That Matson steamer to paradise
On the seas she smiled an Aloha
And teased me with polynesian eyes

Tropic stars were shining brightly in the skies
As the Lurline steamed toward paradise
Aloha au ia ‘oe ku’u kane ipo
Were words from her lips that I heard flow

And she gave to me a yellow ginger lei
Which was her island way to say
The moon is mellow in Hawaii nei
I found love on the Lurline under way

Aloha au ia ‘oe ku’u kane ipo
Were words from her lips that I heard flow

I held her close, this island queen
She teased me with polynesian eyes
I found island love on the Lurline
That Matson steamer to paradise



Snowbirds (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2004) (song#3330)

 

Each winter lots of snowbirds take to the sky
To those warm pacific islands they all fly
And nobody ever wonders why
Cause they’re islands bathed in sunshine
Where all northern snowbirds long to be
There’s lots of tropic air and Aloha to share
Waiting there for you and me

Kauai is the garden isle
Where there’s no snow or ice
And Maui is the valley isle
Where Aloha sounds so very nice
Everybody finds a dream come true
In Hawaii with its charms
And everybody seems to be welcome too
Welcomed with open arms

Don’t need much clothes where the tradewind blows
Diggin’ for opihi and clams
And even hungry hobos to the luau goes
To feast on poi and kalua ham

From across the sea comes a melody
That’s played by slack key guitar bands
Take a chance for romance by the sea
And dance the hula in island sands

So, take my advice and skip the ice
Hawaii is the place to win her hand
Take a trip to where it’s really nice
To the sands of Hawaii and Aloha land



On Fair Maui Isle (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2004) (song#3331)

I was stranded awhile on fair Maui isle
Waiting for my ship to come and find me
A friendly place, a polynesian face
And the ring of Maui chimes behind me

Then she said a shy Aloha, a new island friend
Time we’d spend in the balmy weather
There on the shore, who could ask for more
For it was there we fell in love together

I said I’ve heard that tune but don’t recall just when
Maybe on another shore or on tradewinds
Or maybe from above for someone to love
Until now I’ve never heard such sweet notes as then

I felt my feet begin to dance, away they went
I was caught up in the magic of the isle
My heart didn’t stand a chance, she was heaven sent
Her hula sway was as graceful as her smile

There was new magic in old Lahaina town
It was in my feet when I put them down
I was smiling without a care, music everywhere
I was the happiest island man around

But now I’m gone and she’s still there
My ukulele is hanging on the rack
That island shore my feet will see no more
Though islands call to say come on back

And the guitars are playin’ when the sun goes down
I left my broken heart with an island girl so brown
But to a degree on a winter night
Somehow when the cold wind is blowing right
I hear a melody that just might
Be from across the sea from old Lahaina town
From a brokenhearted island girl so brown



Balmy Air Of Hawaii Nei (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2004) (song#3332)

 

Dear thoughts my mind does bring
Of isles where palm trees sway
And I hear the bluebirds sing
In the balmy air of Hawaii nei

Her smile is still just as near
As the day I sailed away
And tomorrow that island girl will hear
All the words of love my heart can say

Yes, I will tell her of my love
In every way of application
Under moon and stars above
For her will dwell my adoration

To my soul her love makes ring
With joy each living day
We will hear the bluebirds sing
In the balmy air of Hawaii nei

Yes, I will tell her of my love
In every way of application
Under moon and stars above
For her will dwell my adoration

To my soul her love makes ring
With joy each living day
We will hear the bluebirds sing
In the balmy air of Hawaii nei

We will hear the bluebirds sing
In the balmy air of Hawaii nei



Moonlight And You (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2004) (song#3333)

 

If in the islands I would find
The time when you would be mine
Forevermore

Sweet music would be of the kind
That says all joy I would find
On this island shore

Island love and all that it means
Would be found in natural scenes
That we would adore

When the stars in the night
Make a beautiful sight
Our hearts will be filled with delight

Romance will take wings
For to us it now brings
Island love that it pulls

The moon is just right
In the islands tonight
For moonlight and you are beautiful

The moon is just right
In the islands tonight
For moonlight and you are beautiful



At One Time (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2004) (song#3334)

 

At one time you must have been a dream
At one time, was that dream really you
You must have really been here for awhile
Cause here on the isle is where dreams come true

Now, how can I be happy today
There’s no way until you belong to me
Oh, why did my dream fade away
Aloha ‘oe, goodbye to a love never to be

Was I awake, I don’t know
But I know I believe it was true
That once a long time ago
You were the dream that I knew

What is the truth, will I learn it some day
Were you my dream that turned and faded away

I felt your touch, that you can’t conceal
I cared so much that you must be real
Oh, return to me, make my dream come true
At one time you must have been a dream
At one time, that dream was really you



Pineapple Pie (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2004) (song#3335)

 

Whenever I smell an island tuberose
I think it’s swell that I’ve got a nose
And when that tuberose is fresh with dew
It’s refreshing to know that I’m in love with you

Whenever a bird of paradise appears
I’ve preferred to hear it with two ears
And I’ve been heard to sing along too
And it occurred to me that I’m in love with you

I can see a tropic sky
You and I can stroll hand in hand
We can taste pineapple pie
I think it’s really grand
To be in love in island sand

And when I awake on an island morn
It makes me happy that I was born
I stay that way the whole day through
It may be that I’m in love with you

I can see a tropic sky
You and I can stroll hand in hand
We can taste pineapple pie
I think it’s really grand
To be in love in island sand

And when I awake on an island morn
It makes me happy that I was born
I stay that way the whole day through
It may be that I’m in love with you



Bridge Back Home (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2004) (song#3336)

 

Oh, the hurricane took the cottage I was born in
And the high rise claimed the fields of sugar cane
I feel a yearnin’ in my heart for returnin’
To those fields of island cane from which I came

Hawaii, are your tradewinds still blowin’
Mauna Kea, is your top still white with snow
Are there still feral pigs free and roamin’
Up on that old Kapalua ridge that I know
Has that island girl for whom I’m still longin’
Burned my true love along with the bridge
Hawaii, Hawaii

This mainland has shown me more troubles
Than I have ever known
All my dreams turned into only bubbles
Instead of a golden throne

Now my only dream is of my mem’ries
Of happiness that I thought was only pain
I feel a yearnin’ in my heart for returnin’
To those fields of island cane from which I came

Hawaii, are your tradewinds still blowin’
Mauna Kea, is your top still white with snow
Are there still feral pigs free and roamin’
Up on that old Kapalua ridge that I know
Has that island girl for whom I’m still longin’
Burned my true love along with the bridge
Hawaii, Hawaii
I’m gonna build a bridge back home to you



Harbor Of The Isle Of Dreams (Larry W. Jones 08/08/2004) (song#3336)

 

From across the ocean you come to me
Where tropic stars, their vigil keep
When another day of work ends peacefully
And I lay my weary head to sleep

I see fragrant flowers in a far off isle of dreams
I know they’ll vanish with the morn
But another flower is always in my heart, it seems
An island rose that has no thorn

We always meet at the harbor of the isle of dreams
That is on the shores of golden sand
From across the ocean where moonlight beams
An Aloha to an island love so grand

I see fragrant flowers in a far off isle of dreams
I know they’ll vanish with the morn
But another flower is always in my heart, it seems
An island rose that has no thorn

Where every tradewind breeze is from paradise
And every song of love has island themes
We always meet at these times that I prize
At the harbor of the isle of dreams

And every song of love has island themes
At the harbor of the isle of dreams



Mama’s Island Lullaby (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2004) (song#3338)

 

Over in old Maui
Where soft tradewinds blow
A mele my mother sang to me
In tones so sweet and low
It was just a simple lullaby
In her good old island way
If I could turn back the hands of time
I’d hear her sing to me today

Hiamoe pono, hiamoe maika’i, hiamoe loa
Now go to sleep and don’t you cry
Hiamoe pono, hiamoe maika’i, hiamoe loa
That was mama’s island lullaby

Many times in dreams I wander
Back to old Maui isle again
And when I’m there, I ponder
How her lovin’ arms were then
And I can hear her voice a-hummin’
Just as in island days of yore
With those cradle rockers drummin’
Just inside that cottage door

Hiamoe pono, hiamoe maika’i, hiamoe loa
Now go to sleep and don’t you cry
Hiamoe pono, hiamoe maika’i, hiamoe loa
That was mama’s island lullaby



Round The Cliffs Of Napali (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2004) (song#3339)

 

Oh, I have sailed far from my own island home
Far away o’re mainlands, far away o’re the foam
But all of those places mean nothing to me
For none can compare with the cliffs of Napali

Take a view o’re the valleys, ’tis fine you will say
You’ll see the blue waters of Hanalei Bay
Oh, the towns of Kapaa and Anahola you’ll see
From the high green slopes round the cliffs of Napali

Kauai’s a fine place to be on any fine day
Watching garden isle flowers that bloom where they may
There’s graceful herons and birds of paradise to see
Making nests for their young round the cliffs of Napali

Aloha ‘oe to fair Napali, Aloha ‘oe for just awhile
And to all you fine island folks, I leave with a smile
For I’ll return to the valleys and bays that I see
And the high green slopes round the cliffs of Napali

For I’ll return to the valleys and bays that I see
And the high green slopes round the cliffs of Napali



Moanalua Gardens (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2004) (song#3340)

 

It was down by Moanalua Gardens
That my island love and I did meet
She strolled across Moanalua Gardens
With her graceful brown and lovely feet

Falling in love with her was easy
Easy as fronds grow on tall palm trees
Our bonds of love was young but deep
And a song was sung that we would keep

In a field by Kahana Stream
My love and I did stand
With her head upon my shoulder
I held her gentle hand

Falling in love with her was easy
Easy as fronds grow on tall palm trees
Our bonds of love was young but deep
And a song was sung that we would keep

It was down by Moanalua Gardens
That my island love and I did meet
She strolled across Moanalua Gardens
With her graceful brown and lovely feet

Falling in love with her was easy
Easy as fronds grow on tall palm trees
Our bonds of love was young but deep
And a song was sung that we would keep

It was down by Moanalua Gardens
That my island love and I did meet



Luana Hill Dream (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2004) (song#3341)

Last night I was dreaming of island days gone by
My mind was ramb’ling as to Hawaii I did fly
I stepped aboard a dream carried by tradewinds
And that dream didn’t stop ’til I was at Luana Hill

It being the first of May, day of the island lei day fair
Hawaii’s sons and daughters were all assembled there
Young and old, brave and bold, traditions to fulfill
There were luaus and hula dances at Luana Hill

I went to see all my neighbors down by the bay
Most were dead and gone and some were turning grey
I met with Aunty Genoa Keawe, a songbird as ever still
She used to sing me island songs over by Luana Hill

Then I paid a dreamy visit to my first and only island love
She was as brown as a berry and gentle as a dove
With her arms around me, she said she loved me still
Oh, she was a true island daughter, flower of Luana Hill

I dreamed I held and kissed her as in days of yore
And I said she was my dream on that island shore
Then the cock crowed in the morning, loud and shrill
And I awoke in Texas, far far away from Luana Hill



Old West Maui Mountains (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2004) (song#3342)

 

There’s a place that I love so
A place where tradewinds blow
Every day I’m dreamin’, every way I’m schemin
To return to that place that I love so
That place where life is slow

Back to those old west Maui mountains
Back to that old Kapalua town of mine
Back to palm trees waving by the sea
And waters that taste like finest wine
There’s a little island girl who’s waiting
That I must return to see
Back to those old west Maui mountains
Over in old Maui, Hawaii

Ever since I left my island home
I knew I’d been gone too long
Now I’m oh, so lonesome, yes, so lonesome
For my old west Maui mountain island home

Soon I’ll be returnin’
Back to those old west Maui mountains
Back to that old Kapalua town of mine
Back to palm trees waving by the sea
And waters that taste like finest wine
There’s a little island girl who’s waiting
That I must return to see
Back to those old west Maui mountains
Over in old Maui, Hawaii



Hawai’i No Ka ‘Oi (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2004) (song#3343)

 

Most people live on a mainland
Where life is stern as can be
Most people yearn for an island
Where they can learn to love easily

Hawai’i
May call to you one night
Or maybe on some lonesome day
You might hear it in your heart
When your heart strings call
Come and sail away
Come and sail away

Hawai’i
Will be a whisper on tradewinds
From over the sea
A song you’ve longed for endlessly
A call that always begins
Return to me
Return to me

Islands fill you with desires
Inspires your special dreams
They bloom like island flowers
Along the bays and streams

So, heed the islands cry
And you will find them
Across the sea so wide
Your special island gem
A paradise from which will stem
Return to me
Return to me

Hawai’i, Hawai’i no ka ‘oi



Across The Bounding Main (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2004) (song#3344)

 

O’er awesome seas and ocean crossings
I sailed my weary way
And after days and nights of tossings
My feet on one fair island strayed one day

Then I resolved toward sunset
A true love for to gain
And there I met an island girl
On the isle across the bounding main

Aloha to you, fair island maiden
I hope this day has seen you good
Were it not for storms and awesome wind
Out sailing on the sea, I would

Welcome you are, you ocean ranger
For on my isle it is quite plain
That Aloha is for any stranger
Who sails across the boundless main

She took me to her mother’s home
Oh, and she treated me quite well
From her side I wished to never roam
But she held a secret, I could tell

In my mind I tried to paint her picture
But, alas, such would be in vain
For so lovely was that girl
On the isle across the bounding main

I asked that girl if she’d marry me
But she said never could that be
For she already had a love, you see
Out sailing somewhere on the sea

Now, for that other sailor
She said her true love would remain
Til he returned to claim her
On the isle across the bounding main

So, Aloha ‘oe, you fair island maiden
For ne’er shall I see you more
And now I set the sails before the wind
Away from her cottage by the shore

Now, when e’re I think of a precious pearl
I fill my glass of rum again
And drink to that classy island girl
On the isle across the bounding main



Roll Ocean Roll (Larry W. Jones 08/09/2004) (song#3345)

 

The ocean rolls
It rolls endlessly
And wherever that ocean rolls
That’s where I’ve gotta be
Roll ocean roll
Let your tradewinds steer me round
Take me down your ocean road
Toward old Lahaina town

All I ever wanted
Was to be free as the breeze
And I guess that’s the way
The way it turned out to be
Roll ocean roll
Let your tradewinds steer me round
Take me down your ocean road
Toward old Lahaina town

Roll ocean roll
Slowly upon your seven seas
Roll ocean roll
Roll on endlessly
Roll on ocean, roll for me

The ocean rolls
It rolls endlessly
And wherever that ocean rolls
That’s where I’ve gotta be
Roll ocean roll
Let your tradewinds steer me round
Take me down your ocean road
Toward old Lahaina town



Lovely Hula Girl (Larry W. Jones 08/10/2004) (song#3346)

 

Lovely hula girl
You are so beautiful
Sunlight in your hair
So beyond compare
I care so much for you

My thoughts aren’t for just this moment
They’re for the future too
I see more than your sway
I can see dreams coming true
Lovely hula girl
I’ll love you for always

The way I feel for you
Is a love song old and new
And I know you feel it too
When the only word to say
Is Aloha, I love you

Lovely hula girl
The joys that islands bring
You bring to me
Whether day or in the night
Whenever I hold you tight
To my heart you hold the key

The way I feel for you
Is a love song old and new
And I know you feel it too
When the only word to say
Is Aloha, I love you

I see more than your sway
I can see dreams coming true
Lovely hula girl
I’ll love you for always



Ukulele Boy (Larry W. Jones 08/10/2004) (song#3347)

 

Strum a song, strum an island song, ukulele boy
Ukulele boy, sing along
Sing along, sing it strong, ukulele boy
Strum and sing your carefree island melody

Every strum strum is the same tune playing in my heart
I cast off all my problems when your strumming starts
Far and near, your tune is clearly one of island joy
Strum your ukulele for me, ukulele boy

Every strum strum is the same tune playing in my heart
I cast off all my problems when your strumming starts
Strum a song, strum an island song, ukulele boy
Sing along, sing it strong, ukulele boy
Strum and sing your carefree island melody

Every strum strum is the same tune playing in my heart
I cast off all my problems when your strumming starts
Far and near, your tune is clearly one of island joy
Strum your ukulele for me, ukulele boy
Strum and sing your carefree island melody
Ukulele boy



Sunset Sky Of Paradise (Larry W. Jones 08/10/2004) (song#3348)

I was lost in a sunset sky of paradise
The silver lining of the clouds
Were endowed for the poet’s eyes

There you’ll find me
I strolled through an open door
To explore the sands of a distant shore
To understand the island’s mystery

It’s not a song that’s full of empty words
For timeless is an island theme
The sunset sky of paradise can be heard
In every song the islands sing

There you’ll find me
I strolled through an open door
To explore the sands of a distant shore
To understand the island’s mystery

It’s not a song that’s full of empty words
For timeless is an island theme
The sunset sky of paradise can be heard
In every song the islands sing
It’s no longer a mystery
Islands were made for you and me

The sunset sky of paradise can be heard
In every song the islands sing



Tradewinds Oh Tradewinds (Larry W. Jones 08/10/2004) (song#3349)

 

Tradewinds, oh tradewinds
Please take this song to the girl I love
Caress her lovingly
And ask her to wait there for me
For I’ll be sailing homeward soon
To hold her under the tropic moon

Tradewinds, oh tradewinds
Please whisper to her my song of love
Make the meaning strong as you flow along
I know I’ve been gone too long
From the one whom I adore
And from her gentle island shore

Console her
If you hear that she is crying
Whisper
If you should hear her sighing
Please tell her
That to my vows I’m still complying

Tradewinds, oh tradewinds
Please take this song to the girl I love
Caress her lovingly
And ask her to wait there for me
For I’ll be sailing homeward soon
To hold her under the tropic moon



Raven Black (Larry W. Jones 08/10/2004) (song#3350)

 

Raven black is the color of my true love’s hair
Her face is blushing in the island air
So lovely the grace of her hula hands
I love the sand upon which she stands

My love for her she well knows
Whispered where the tradewind blows
If she no more on earth I would see
Then no good would be this heart in me

Seasons have passed with island scenes
We have crossed the bridge in between
Now the time for our love has come
Time for my love and I to be as one

My love for her she well knows
Whispered where the tradewind blows
If she no more on earth I would see
Then no good would be this heart in me

Raven black is the color of my true love’s hair
Her face is blushing in the island air
So lovely the grace of her hula hands
I love the sand upon which she stands



Paradise Dreamer (Larry W. Jones 08/10/2004) (song#3351)

Paradise dreamer
Awake unto me
Nere be there teardrops
For your eyes to see

Lovely is your world
Where breezes play
Moonlight has unfurled
Love beams where you lay

Paradise dreamer
Theme of my song
My love for you will
Forever be strong

All of my prayers have
Now come to be
Paradise dreamer
Awake unto me
Paradise dreamer
Awake unto me



Enchanting Love (Larry W. Jones 08/10/2004) (song#3352)

 

Enchanting love
No longer a mystery
Enchanting love
Look what you’ve done to me
I was gloomy and so alone
But now you have rescued me
With your island song

Enchanting love
You came from paradise
Enchanting love
My dream has been realized

Look what you’ve done to me
I was gloomy and so alone
But now you have rescued me
With your island song

Enchanting love
You came from paradise
Enchanting love
My dream has been realized
As lovely as skies of blue
Enchanting love
My dream has come true

As lovely as skies of blue
Enchanting love
My dream has come true



Leilani Of My Soul (Larry W. Jones 08/10/2004) (song#3353)

 

I saw the tropic sun in your smile
It was summer where breezes play
Love was like magic on the isle
You made every dark cloud fade away

Our love was a dream in the night
Aloha was more than words convey
But dreams, no matter how bright
Sometimes take flight and fade away

Now, on an overcrowed beach
I stroll in search of your face
But you are somehow out of reach
And you, no one else can replace

I watch as sand castles fall apart
As the tide sweeps away my heart
Gone like breakers when they roll
Gone are you, Leilani of my soul

Our love was a dream in the night
Aloha was more than words convey
But dreams, no matter how bright
Sometimes take flight and fade away

I watch as sand castles fall apart
As the tide sweeps away my heart
Gone like breakers when they roll
Gone are you, Leilani of my soul



Beautiful Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 08/10/2004) (song#3354)

 

Beautiful Hawaii
Peaceful Alohaland
Sunkissed waters and golden sand
Green are your valleys
Abundant your earth
Rising from where oceans give birth

Beautiful Hawaii
With views all around
Your wonderous isles are paradise found
Created in beauty
By God’s own hand
Beautiful Hawaii, peaceful Alohaland

May you be ever a place where love lives
Islands of such grace have so much to give

Beautiful Hawaii
With views all around
Your wonderous isles are paradise found
Created in beauty
By God’s own hand
Beautiful Hawaii, peaceful Alohaland



Upon Your Shore (Larry W. Jones 08/10/2004) (song#3355)

 

Because I happened upon your shore
My life will never be the same
For I can live and love again
And still make come true the dreams
That once died before I came

Because I’ve found true love this time
An island love that’s truly mine
My heart can beat again
And greet the stars that brightly beam
Each time I hear your name

A new world I have found
An island with beauty all around
And a new day has begun
With your love that I have won
On this island shore

Because of you I now can see
What dreams are made of by the sea

A new world I have found
An island with beauty all around
And a new day has begun
With your love that I have won
Because I happened upon your shore



Because Of Island Sand (Larry W. Jones 08/10/2004) (song#3356)

 

Because of island sand
I fell in love with you
The golden sand
Seemed to help a dream come true

Because of island sand
We strolled hand in hand
Together on the shore
And now I understand
An island’s ways of love much more

Because of island sand
And an unplanned kiss or two
The tropic day gave way
To skies of gold and blue

Now I thank the island sand
For the ring upon your hand
We found a love so grand
Because of island sand

Because of island sand
And an unplanned kiss or two
The tropic day gave way
To skies of gold and blue

Now I thank the island sand
For the ring upon your hand
We found a love so grand
Because of island sand



Since Now There Is You (Larry W. Jones 08/10/2004) (song#3357)

 

Since now there is you
I sense a song in my heart
Since now there is you
I sense that romance must start

Since now there is you
There’s evidence that the sun will shine
Along with the stars and the moon
Who sense that you are mine
And since now that love must start
A prince and a princess
Must never part

Now my love is for you only
As is each and every kiss
In paradise is much better than lonely
For paradise is being near you like this

Since now there is you
My life is worthwhile on the isle
Since now there is you
I sense a lingering smile
Now there’ll be a ring on your finger
And one on mine too
Since now there is you



Now That You’re Mine (Larry W. Jones 08/10/2004) (song#3358)

 

Now that you’re mine
A star fell into the sea
An envious star came to tell
That he envies me
Now that you’re mine
Now that you’re mine

Now that you’re mine
The tradewind that breezes by
Whispers a melody of paradise
That pleases me with songs divine
Now that you’re mine
Now that you’re mine

One thing I know of this love that you give
It will only grow more each day that I live

And when I hold your hand
It’s not that I’ve had too much wine
In time you’ll understand
That I’m feeling fine
Now that you’re mine
Now that you’re mine

One thing I know of this love that you give
It will only grow more each day that I live

And when I hold your hand
It’s not that I’ve had too much wine
In time you’ll understand
That I’m feeling fine
Now that you’re mine
Now that you’re mine



Just An Island Boy (Larry W. Jones 08/11/2004) (song#3359)

 

I’m just an island boy
In Hawaii blue
In this tropic zone
With nothin’ to do

I don’t have anything
Like gold to speak of
But my only care
Is someone to share my love

An island girl to love
An island girl to kiss
A dream from above
On an island like this

If she were near
Aloha, I’d say
And give her my love
That always would stay

Tradewind, oh, tradewind please
Please whisper for me
That I’ll make her happy
Here by the sea

I’m just an island boy
In Hawaii blue
In this tropic zone
With nothin’ to do

Tradewind, oh, tradewind please
Please whisper for me
That I’ll make her happy
Here by the sea



Tradewinds Brought Me You (Larry W. Jones 08/11/2004) (song#3360)

 

I felt tradewinds blow
In Hawaii blue
I heard tradewinds blow
A love song of you

Soft breezes were saying
Your love’s here at last
It was like praying
That this love would last

We seemed to drift
Right through the air
Island songs came so swift
Love was everywhere

And now when there’s tradewinds
In Hawaii blue
I remember the time when
Tradewinds brought me you

We seemed to drift
Right through the air
Island songs came so swift
Love was everywhere

And now when there’s tradewinds
In Hawaii blue
I remember the time when
Tradewinds brought me you



More Than Just A Day (Larry W. Jones 08/11/2004) (song#3361)

Island love
Is for both the old and young
Every tropic star
Is a star to wish upon

Island love
Is a love that shines for you
One little kiss
Can make your dreams come true

They say there’s seven wonders in the world
And it’s no wonder, on an island, all of them unfurl

Sometimes an island day
Will bring some showers
Just to make more fragrant leis
From more island flowers

But island love
Can slip right through your fingers
And fade away
So be sure
Your love will make her linger
For more than just a day

Island love
Is a love that shines for you
One little kiss
Can make your dreams come true

But island love
Can slip right through your fingers
And fade away
So be sure
Your love will make her linger
For more than just a day



In Tahitian Waters (Larry W. Jones 08/15/2004) (song#3362)

 

Over in old Tahiti
Where islands are made for two
I lost my love there by the sea
In a paradise of blue

She and I went sailing
On a polynesian sea
The setting sun was unveiling
Twilight for my love and me

Such sweet time we would borrow
As tradewinds sang their song
Our dreams were of tomorrow
But now she is gone

I still see her lips
When I dream anew
I still see her eyes
In Tahitian waters blue

Her long hair I still revere
Glowing in sunlight
My vision of her is clear
Calling to me tonight

In Tahitian waters
There lives a dream of gold
Now my heart can but wait
For that island daughter
As I am growing old



Over A Blue Horizon (Larry W. Jones 08/15/2004) (song#3363)

 

Over a blue horizon
There by a beautiful bay
Awaits a rising sun
Island joy for me some day

Over a blue horizon
I see a new life has begun
Over a new horizon
Where I become an island son

Over a blue horizon
There by a beautiful bay
Awaits a rising sun
Island joy for me some day

Somewhere there’s a blue horizon
For I have seen it in my dreams
Somewhere over a new horizon
Where island sunshine beams

Over a blue horizon
I see a new life has begun
Over a new horizon
Where I become an island son

Over a blue horizon
Where I become an island son



Midst Of A Rainbow (Larry W. Jones 08/15/2004) (song#3364)

 

In the midst of a rainbow
In the middle of a peaceful sea
There where tradewinds blow
Are islands called Hawaii

And when they call, you know
There you must be
In the midst of a rainbow
Among the islands of Hawaii

The tradewind breeses whisper
Hele mai, hele mai, come to me
And your heart will answer her
I will come to your peaceful sea

In the midst of a rainbow
In the middle of a peaceful sea
There where tradewinds blow
Are islands called Hawaii

And when they call, you know
There you must be
In the midst of a rainbow
Among the islands of Hawaii



Outbound Side Of The Reef (Larry W. Jones 08/15/2004) (song#3365)

On the outbound side of the reef
The ocean is deep and cold
There my love has gone, and now my grief
And so too my dreams of gold

Now deep and cold are my tears
But her love I can’t forget
I wll remember through the years
That on the outbound side of the reef
Sails a ship full of love’s regret

A thousand fragrant flower leis
I’ll toss into the tidal flow
Of a thousand fragrant flower leis
One love that was lost may return, I know
But until I hear the sound
Of her Aloha return to me
My broken heart will only be found
On the outbound side of the reef

But until I hear the sound
Of her Aloha return to me
My broken heart will only be found
On the outbound side of the reef



Kahului Harbor Lights (Larry W. Jones 08/15/2004) (song#3366)

Well, she’s been a long time gone
And it’s been a long time since I slept at night
This funny feeling from night til dawn
Tells me something just ain’t right
So, I’ll just sit here watching the goin’s on
Underneath these Kahului harbor lights

I keep on dreaming ’bout my island baby
She’s no doubt sailed away
Yeah, she’s gone and left me, don’t mean maybe
But maybe she’ll return to me one day

Well, she’s been a long time gone
And it’s been a long time since I slept at night
This funny feeling from night til dawn
Tells me something just ain’t right
So, I’ll just sit here watching the goin’s on
Underneath these Kahului harbor lights

Yeah, she’s gone and left me, don’t mean maybe
But maybe she’ll return to me one day

This funny feeling from night til dawn
Tells me something just ain’t right
So, I’ll just sit here watching the goin’s on
Underneath these Kahului harbor lights



That Spells Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 08/15/2004) (song#3367)

 

You’re from big H, I surmise
By the way the islands call
And your polynesian eyes
You’re from big H, islands tall

Big H, little aw, little a, double i’s
And that spells Hawaii, no surprise
I’m sure you must be from paradise
Where dreams come true

Big H, little aw, little a, double i’s
That spells Hawaii one more time
And it tells of love and bluest skies
Where dwells sweet Maui chimes

Yeah, that spells Hawaii
Where you can dig your toe in island sand
And dreams come true there by the sea
In Hawaii, where life and love is grand

Yeah, that spells Hawaii
Big H, little aw, little a, double i’s
Yeah, that spells Hawaii
And Hawaii always spells paradise

Big H, little aw, little a, double i’s
Yeah, that spells Hawaii
And Hawaii always spells paradise



Big Ship From Maui (Larry W. Jones 08/15/2004) (song#3368)

 

Well, when I was young
I spent my island days playin’ by the bay
The sight of ships a-sailin’ hung
Upon my mind as they sailed away

Big ship from Maui
Big ship from old Lahaina town
That big ship is gone, gone, gone
That big ship from Maui can’t be found

Like no other ship before
That big ship set sail from Maui’s shore
And I knew I had to move along
Every day when I went to play
Down by the bay I heard that sound
That big ships make when they’re outward bound
The ocean called me before too long
Like a big ship calling with its song

Big ship from Maui
Big ship from old Lahaina town
That big ship is gone, gone, gone
That big ship from Maui can’t be found

Well, I’ve sailed ’em in and sailed ’em out again
Don’t even remember some of those ship’s names
But I mean to say when I was young and playin’ by the bay
When that big ship from Maui sailed around
And then it left old Lahaina town
My world turned into a new found game
And this young boy from Maui ain’t never been the same

Big ship from Maui
Big ship from old Lahaina town
That big ship is gone, gone, gone
That big ship from Maui can’t be found

Big ship from Maui
That big ship is gone, gone, gone



Hula Dancer (Larry W. Jones 08/16/2004) (song#3369)

 

At a luau dance she caught my eyes
A hula dancer straight from paradise
She was dancin’ the hula, swayin’ to and fro
And that romancin’ feelin’ wouldn’t let me go

Blame it on a hula dancer
With her island spell
Blame it on a hula dancer
Where my heart fell
Oh, it couldn’t have been just by mere chance
Something had to start this isle romance
Blame it on a hula dancer
And her dance of island love

She was under a moon of love
This hula dancer
Dancing under the stars above
This hula dancer
Blame it on a hula dancer
And her dance of island love

Now that island girl is my wife to be
Our future life is gonna be by the sea
And when our kids ask how it came to be that way
I’ll tell ’em it had to be their mommy’s hula sway

Blame it on a hula dancer
With her island spell
Blame it on a hula dancer
Where my heart fell
Oh, it couldn’t have been just by mere chance
Something had to start this isle romance
Blame it on a hula dancer
And her dance of island love



Blue Velvet Night (Larry W. Jones 08/16/2004) (song#3370)

 

A blue velvet night
Comes as twilight ends the day
A blue velvet night
Spent all alone where breezes play

My dreams are just as dark
As the tropic night above me
I would be as happy as a lark
If I only had someone to love me

I heard some sweet island love songs
On KPOI radio
But they’re the only love songs
That I know

Well, here comes another dawn
On this island in the sea
Another dawn and more blues comin’ on
Then another blue velvet night for me

My dreams are just as dark
As the tropic night above me
I would be as happy as a lark
If I only had someone to love me

I heard some sweet island love songs
On KPOI radio
But they’re the only love songs
That I know

Well, here comes another dawn
On this island in the sea
Another dawn and more blues comin’ on
Then another blue velvet night for me



This Blue Island Boy (Larry W. Jones 08/16/2004) (song#3371)

When you departed for the mainland
You took away my only joy
I’m broken hearted in this island sand
When that moon shines on this island boy

But I still wish you’d come back soon
You’re gonna miss more than fish and poi
You’ll miss that big old tropic moon
That’s shining on this blue island boy

On those days when you find yourself all alone
Remember ways of love in this tropic zone
The moon will call you to your island home
Your love is gold to this blue island boy

But I still wish you’d come back soon
You’re gonna miss more than fish and poi
You’ll miss that big old tropic moon
That’s shining on this blue island boy

On those days when you find yourself all alone
Remember ways of love in this tropic zone
The moon will call you to your island home
Your love is gold to this blue island boy

The moon will call you to your island home
Your love is gold to this blue island boy



Bird Of Paradise Blue (Larry W. Jones 08/16/2004) (song#3372)

 

Bird of paradise blue
How tenderly you sing
But who are you singing to
About such a tender thing

Bird of paradise blue
Are you singing for your lost mate
Is it too late for love that’s true
Bird of paradise blue

Wasn’t there once two of you
And didn’t you two sing all day long
What can a bird of paradise blue
Do about a love that’s gone

Bird of paradise blue
Are you singing for your lost mate
Is it too late for love that’s true
Bird of paradise blue

Bird of paradise blue
Your song is from paradise
But what can a bird of paradise do
When a love from paradise dies



Give Me Island Love (Larry W. Jones 08/16/2004) (song#3373)

 

Give me the tropic sun on the isle
Give me your laughter and your smile
I’ll take happiness instead of sorrow
Give me your love and a bright tomorrow

Give me happiness throughout the years
I’ll be here to dry your tears and ease your fears
Give me an island with the moon up above
Give me the tropic sun, give me island love

Give me the tropic sun on the isle
Give me your laughter and your smile
I’ll take happiness instead of sorrow
Give me your love and a bright tomorrow

Give me happiness throughout the years
I’ll be here to dry your tears and ease your fears
Give me an island with the moon up above
Give me the tropic sun, give me island love

Give me the tropic sun on the isle
Give me your laughter and your smile
Give me an island with the moon up above
Give me the tropic sun, give me island love



Ku’u Nani Lokelani O Maui (Larry W. Jones 08/16/2004) (song#3374)

 

She’s the best love the islands have seen
Our hearts are as close as can be
For us, nothing will come in between
My lovely Maui rose and me

Ku’u nani lokelani O Maui
‘A ‘ole loa helele’i kau’oko’a
A flower that never will fall apart
Ku’u nani lokelani O Maui
Lovely Maui rose of my heart

Should sorrow ‘ere come upon you some day
Only rain and not tears will fall from your eyes
Your smile makes the sun shine on the bay
You are my light and my life in this paradise

Ku’u nani lokelani O Maui
‘A ‘ole loa helele’i kau’oko’a
A flower that never will fall apart
Ku’u nani lokelani O Maui
Lovely Maui rose of my heart

A flower that never will fall apart
Ku’u nani lokelani O Maui
Lovely Maui rose of my heart



That Dear One I Love (Larry W. Jones 08/16/2004) (song#3375)

 

Far over the ocean, far over the sea
My heart over there is longing to be
Let the moonlight that shines here on me
Shine on that dear one I love

As I view the moon upon the sea
I know that soon on isles it will be
Let the moonlight that shines here on me
Shine on that dear one I love

I hear the tradewinds calling to me
Whis’pring an island sweet melody
Let the tradewinds that are calling to me
Call to that dear one I love

A sweet tuberose I kiss in repose
The kind that grows eternally
Let the sweet tuberose that kisses me
Kiss that dear one I love

Far over the ocean, far over the sea
My heart over there is longing to be
Let the moonlight that shines here on me
Shine on that dear one I love



The Good Ship Roselani (Larry W. Jones 08/16/2004) (song#3376)

 

Well, we’re going aboard the Roselani
We’re going aboard the Roselani
We’re going aboard for our reward
Aboard the good ship Roselani

Aloha ‘oe ye fair wahinis of Lahaina town
Aloha ‘oe to old Lahaina town
Though ye may grieve, we’re going down
To board the good ship Roselani

The Roselani is a blue water ship
Sailing with a blue water crew
The Roselani is a blue water ship
Sailing to oceans and places new
We could steer her along the shoreline
But that just wouldn’t do
Aboard the good ship Roselani

Around Tierra del Fuego we will go
Where storms and lightnings play
Around Cape Horn is where we’ll go
And hope we return some day
Around Tierra del Fuego is a long long way
Aboard the good ship Roselani

The Roselani is now my only love
The Roselani is now my only love
Aloha ‘oe to ye fair waihinis of Lahaina town
Though ye may grieve, we’re going down
To board the good ship Roselani
We’re going aboard the Roselani



Return My Tropic Sunshine (Larry W. Jones 08/16/2004) (song#3377)

 

Now I know why a rose will fade, dear
When the tropic sunlight grows dim
And I know why the dew is just tears
Of mem’ries of what might have been
Your smile was the tropic sunshine falling
On this island from skies that were blue
The dew is my tears when islands are calling
And the rose that faded away is you

I ask all the stars in the heavens above
To guide your return to me, dear
Tradewinds are whis’pring sweet songs of love
Hoping that you will appear
My lonely heart can’t seem to forget
The dream that I had when first we met
Are all of my prayers to be in vain
Will I ever see my sunshine again

Return the tropic sunshine that was ours
Bring back the sun that makes grow the flowers
Birds of paradise came at your calling
And the tropic sun’s beams came a-falling
Bring back those old sweet Maui chimes
Let not my prayers be in vain
Bring back your love with songs of sweet rhyme
And return my tropic sunshine again



Blue Skies In Hawaii Blue (Larry W. Jones 08/16/2004) (song#3378)

 

There are no islands made for sorrow
No tears are there, only smiles tomorrow
Islands are places that live in glory
They always tell the same love talk story

So, don’t bring a frown to blue Hawaii
For you can’t feel down in blue Hawaii
Bubbles, not troubles are always in style
Beause Hawaii causes faces to smile

A million love songs they’re singing there
Love to a million hearts they’re bringing there
There’s blue skies in Hawaii blue
Cause that’s where dreams come true

So, don’t bring a frown to blue Hawaii
For you can’t feel down in blue Hawaii
Bubbles, not troubles are always in style
Beause Hawaii causes faces to smile

A million love songs they’re singing there
Love to a million hearts they’re bringing there
There’s blue skies in Hawaii blue
Cause that’s where dreams come true



Faded Flowers (Larry W. Jones 08/16/2004) (song#3379)

 

I opened a book and there found some flowers
That brought back mem’ries of sweet island hours
One was a rose whose leaves lingered yet
And then arose a vision that my heart can’t forget

Another page revealed a fragrance so rare
As if it concealed a mystery there
I thought of a bygone island of love
And someone that I’m still dreaming of

Faded flowers, remind me of you
Pansies and violets, purple and blue
Tuberoses white and roses of red
Mem’ries of island love that now is dead

One was a rose whose leaves lingered yet
And then arose a vision that my heart can’t forget
I thought of a bygone island of love
And someone that I’m still dreaming of

Tuberoses white and roses of red
Mem’ries of island love that now is dead
Faded flowers in a book at both ends
Faded love that will ‘nere bloom again



All Through A Tropical Night (Larry W. Jones 08/17/2004) (song#3380)

 

All through a tropical night
A bird of paradise goes singing
Singing with all of his might
As if he knew
As if he knew
That I wish with all of my heart
That I could go winging
To where love had its start
With you
With you

All through a tropical night (a tropical night)
A bird of paradise goes singing (goes singing)
Singing with all of his might
As if he knew (as if he knew)
As if he knew (as if he knew)
That I wish with all of my heart
That I could go winging (that I could go winging)
To where love had its start
With you (with you)
With you (with you)



Where The Tradewind Blows (Larry W. Jones 08/17/2004) (song#3381)

 

Mainlands east or islands west
A feast is the best place is where I chose
Cause I went where the girls are wearin’
Those leis and flowers where the tradewind blows
Maui chimes and climes where the tradewind blows

Don’t bury me on this mainland
Send me to where Aloha grows
I wanna move on down to Lahaina town
Where love is a gal without much clothes
And she stands out where the tradewind blows

I’ll love you in your brown skin
And grass skirts that you have spun
I’ll love ya’ dearer and sincerer
Where there shines a tropic sun

My bones announce that I pronounce
That I like sand under my toes
Let’s set sail to where love can’t fail
On an island of love where the tradewind blows
And I’ll be yours where the tradewind blows

Gimme island livin’ where the women are givin’
Lei greetings and in their hair they wear a rose
And the air I presume is sweet perfume
And I’ll be yours where the tradewind blows
I’ll be yours where the tradewind blows



In The Twilight By The Seaside (Larry W. Jones 08/17/2004) (song#3382)

In the twilight by the seaside
With you would be heaven sent
In the twilight by the seaside
With you my heart would be content

There we’ll see our hopes and dreams
Like a dancing flame of tiki fire
Reflected in the waves that gleam
And acclaim our heart’s desire

In a hammock by the seaside
Just made for me and you
I’ll ask you to be my bride
As island lovers do

There we’ll see our hopes and dreams
Like a dancing flame of tiki fire
Reflected in the waves that gleam
And acclaim our heart’s desire

Who cares if someone’s there to notice
When we share a kiss or two
In the twilight by the seaside
With you

Who cares if someone’s there to notice
When we share a kiss or two
In the twilight by the seaside
With you



Oh Mister Sand Man (Larry W. Jones 08/17/2004) (song#3383)

 

Oh, mister sand man
I could stand to dream some more
And I’ve got a plan
To dream that same dream
That I dreamed the night before

I dreamed about an island
And a girl who was so sweet
When she said she was in love with me
My heart became a big drum beat

And when she started kissing me
I asked her for some more
She was a prize from paradise
With her dreamy polynesian eyes

I dreamed about an island
And a girl who was so sweet
When she said she was in love with me
My heart became a big drum beat

Oh, mister sand man
I could stand to dream some more
And I’ve got a plan
To dream that same dream
That I dreamed the night before

Oh, mister sand man
I wanna dream that same dream
That I dreamed the night before



That Little Grass Shack (Larry W. Jones 08/17/2004) (song#3384)

 

I’m here all alone as my thoughts they do roam
To old Maui far over the sea
For my heart I left there on that island so fair
And old Maui is calling to me

My eyes they are sad, for this island lad
Wishing for a warm tropic zone
Back to that beautiful bay I’ll sail one day
To old Maui, my valley isle home

Oh, I want to go back to that little grass shack
Where wild flowers grow by the shore
And where on poi I was fed and Aloha was said
And listen as breakers on the reef roar

There’s a yellow moon bright ‘ore my home tonight
That shines on the sea and the foam
Soon I will go back to that little grass shack
To that little grass shack I call home



Oh Island World Of Mine (Larry W. Jones 08/17/2004) (song#3385)

 

Oh, island world of mine
Always will she be mine
For evermore
Her love is always kind
More joy I always find
Upon your shore

Aloha love and all it means
I have found in island scenes
Around the girl that I adore

On a starlit tropic night
Under a moon that shines so bright
Romance comes on silent wings
Finds two hearts with its delight
And plays upon their heart strings
Oh, island world of mine
Moonlight and you are beautiful

Aloha love and all it means
I have found in island scenes
Around the girl that I adore
Oh, island world of mine
Moonlight and you are beautiful



To Hawaii And You (Larry W. Jones 08/17/2004) (song#3386)

 

Oh, you pacific island shore
There’s no other place that I love more
Soon I’ll be returning to Hawaii blue
And to my ku’u ipo sweetheart true
I just mailed her a letter
Said I’m sure glad I met ‘er
This little note was all I wrote

Oh, you perfume scented air
Oh, you ship that’s gonna bring me there
This old mainland that I see
Just makes dear old Hawaii dearer to me
Open up my cabin porthole window pane
As the Matson steamer Lurline gets near
I can hear those tradewinds calling again
That say my island honey will soon appear

Oh, don’t you remember Hawaii in september
As we strolled in the sand in paradise
And I saw the tears fall from your eyes
That Aloha ‘oe meant goodbye
Oh, but don’t you remember too
That I promised I’d be true
And soon I’d be returning to Hawaii
Returning to Hawaii and you



Never Could I Forget You (Larry W. Jones 08/17/2004) (song#3387)

 

Soon I must leave you
I grieve that this night is flying
Tropic stars are weeping too
Tradewinds are sighing

But even when I leave you
My love will not be dying
For love that is ever true
Must keep on trying

Never could I forget you
For my heart will always remind me
Of how we strolled in this moonlight dream

Never could I forget you
For my heart will always remind me
Of how sweet you made this island scene

The glory of island talk stories never fade
And neither will this love story that we’ve made

Never could I forget you
For my heart will always remind me
Of how we strolled in this moonlight dream

Never could I forget you
For my heart will always remind me
Of how sweet you made this island scene

Never could I forget you
When every tropic night reminds me
That I must return to you again



Polynesian Sunshine (Larry W. Jones 08/17/2004) (song#3388)

 

Over in polynesia where tropic sunlight plays
Down where the islands shine so bright
Palm trees and island maidens sway
Down by the bay both day and night

My heart, like the tropic sunlight, is burning
Yearning to be there once more
There on that polynesian shore before too long
Just to hear that island song
For that polynesian sunshine draws me back
Back to those isles where I belong

Polynesian sunshine
Can’t you see I’m lonesome
Polynesian sunshine
Can’t you see I’m blue
Lonesome and blue for a sight of you

It doesn’t matter where I happen to wander
There’s useless chatter wherever I roam
For when that golden sun sinks over yonder
I only think of my polynesian sunshine home



Carry Me Back To Old Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 08/17/2004) (song#3389)

 

Carry me back to old Hawaii
That’s where the sugar cane and taro grows
Where birds of paradise warble in the springtime
And where this old island boy so longs to go

I labored there where the tradewinds blow
Day after day in those fields of sugar cane
There’s no place on earth that I love so
Old Hawaii, where rainbows shine through the rain

Carry me back to old Hawaii
That’s where the sugar cane and taro grows
Where birds of paradise warble in the springtime
And where this old island boy so longs to go

Carry me back to old Hawaii
Let me live there til my dying day
Long by those golden shores I have wandered
That’s where this old island boy will pass away

Many others have long returned before me
Now it’s my turn to meet them on that golden shore
There we’ll all be happy by the peaceful sea
There’s where this old island boy will leave no more



These Memories Of You (Larry W. Jones 08/17/2004) (song#3390)

 

It doesn’t matter that we’re now apart, dear
I still haven’t found somebody new
Your memories still are scattered in my heart, dear
And I’m bound by these memories of you

If all the islands were to sink, there’d be no paradise
And old Lahaina town go with it too
But even then I know my love for you would never die
Cause I’m bound by these memories of you

Maybe years will erase my tears and then, dear
I could chase around for another dream or two
But I know, where breezes blow, you’ll be there, dear
And I’ll still be bound by these memories of you

If all the islands were to sink, there’d be no paradise
And old Lahaina town go with it too
But my dreams and hopes of yesterday will never die
As long as I’m bound by these memories of you

But my dreams and hopes of yesterday will never die
As long as I’m bound by these memories of you



Waikiki Surf Board Boy (Larry W. Jones 08/18/2004) (song#3391)

 

Have you ever strolled along that Waikiki sand
Where a boy with island rhythm has a surf board stand
The island folks know he’s in demand
He’s a great big island boy (eatin’ poi)
He pops the surf board waxin’ rag
He’s the Waikiki surf board boy

He charges you a dime to make your surf board shine
He can make an old surf board look like new
You know you wanna go surfin’ when he gets through
He’s a great big island boy (eatin’ poi)
He pops the surf board waxin’ rag
He’s the Waikiki surf board boy

Sometimes you wonder why the rag don’t tear
He waxes over and under and bottom to top
His rhythm is definitely island flair
With his poppity poppity pop pop pop

His surf board waxin’ business is doing fine
He sure knows how to make surf boards shine
Some even call his design divine
He’s a great big island boy (eatin’ poi)
He pops the surf board waxin’ rag
He’s the Waikiki surf board boy

Sometimes you wonder why the rag don’t tear
He waxes over and under and bottom to top
His rhythm is definitely island flair
With his poppity poppity pop pop pop

His surf board waxin’ business is doing fine
He sure knows how to make surf boards shine
Some even call his design divine
He’s a great big island boy (eatin’ poi)
He pops the surf board waxin’ rag
He’s the Waikiki surf board boy



Delightful Little Sight Full (Larry W. Jones 08/18/2004) (song#3392)

 

There’s a delightful little sight full
And I miss her mighty frightful
Any time she’s not in my sight full
Cause what I wanna tell her is so rightful
I just want to say Aloha, I love you

Rain may come raining down
But it’ll make some rainbows in Lahaina town
And I’ll see her come strolling ’round
What a delightful little sight full
Cause what I wanna tell her is so rightful
I just want to say Aloha, I love you

Down by the bay it’s an island phrase
And I practice it every day
She puts me in a daze
Some may poo-pa-poo it
But my ku’u ipo sure can do it
She makes me wanna say…

What a delightful little sight full
Cause what I wanna tell her is so rightful
I just want to say Aloha, I love you



Remember Me In Your Dreams (Larry W. Jones 08/18/2004) (song#3393)

 

Under tropic stars high above you
Tradewinds sigh as if to say
Aloha, I love you
Birds of paradise are singing
In a tall palm tree
Remember me in your dreams

Every night in dreams I kiss you
I hold you tight so you won’t miss me
But I’m as lonely as I can be
I miss your island in the sea, it seems
Remember me in your dreams

There’s a full moon in heaven tonight, dear
Spreading beams of love
I’m here shedding tears in the night, dear
Dreaming of the one I love

Moon beams are shining around you
Sweet dreams are glad that they found you
I’m sad, but here is my scheme
Remember me in your dreams

Every night in dreams I kiss you
I hold you tight so you won’t miss me
But I’m as lonely as I can be
I miss your island in the sea, it seems
Remember me in your dreams

Moon beams are shining around you
Sweet dreams are glad that they found you
I’m sad, but here is my scheme
Remember me in your dreams



Cottage In Manoa Valley (Larry W. Jones 08/18/2004) (song#3394)

 

There’s an island cottage in Manoa valley
In Manoa valley by the shore
There’s no other place that’s as dear to me
As that island cottage by the shore

Hele mai, hele mai, E komo mai

Welcome to my cottage in Manoa valley
Hele mai, E komo mai, welcome to my door
There’s no other place that’s as dear to me
As that island cottage by the shore

Maui chimes are heard on Manoa morning
Hele mai, E komo mai to the place I adore
Island songs there are sweetly adorning
That little island cottage by the shore

Hele mai, hele mai, E komo mai

There’s an island cottage in Manoa valley
In Manoa valley by the shore
There’s no other place that’s as dear to me
As that island cottage by the shore

There in that cottage in Manoa valley
Lives the one that I am singing for
She’s in my dreams in Manoa valley
In that little island cottage by the shore

Hele mai, hele mai, E komo mai
To that little island cottage by the shore



That Old Palm Tree (Larry W. Jones 08/18/2004) (song#3395)

 

I’ve returned to see that island girl
Whom I have loved throughout the years
I’ve returned to where the breakers curl
Where I held that girl’s hand so dear
Let’s stroll down by the shore
Where we once played with childish glee
There’s something I must show you
If you’ll find that old palm tree with me

I’ve left behind the noisy mainland
With all its broken hearts and strife
Just to make you happy, ku’u ipo
And ask that you become my wife
My return was hard to win, dear
But at last I crossed the sea
I’ll let you know of all my cheer
If you’ll find that old palm tree with me

Come and find that old palm tree with me
The one we carved on years ago
Let me show you all those simple words
Ku’u ipo mau loa, I’ll always love you so
Let’s cast our cares aside and find that tree
Let’s go strolling hand in hand
We’ll find that tall palm tree, you and me
And make dreams come true in island sand



Tradewinds Passing In The Night (Larry W. Jones 08/18/2004) (song#3396)

 

When the island is sleeping
And the tropic night is still
The big full moon comes creeping
Slowly over island vale and hill
Tradewinds float by and kiss her
For sweet dreams to fulfill

When tradewinds are passing in the night
I listen to their whisper and I dream of you
When tradewinds are passing in the night
My delight is your kisses fresh as island dew

But tradewinds that pass me in the day
Tell me that your love has gone away
I wish and hope and wait as they blow by
For tradewinds in the night so I won’t cry

When nights are lonely and I stroll the sand
I think of the only love that I have known
Sweet thoughts of island love that are so grand
That are on the night time tradewinds blown

When tradewinds are passing in the night
I listen to their whisper and I dream of you
When tradewinds are passing in the night
My delight is your kisses fresh as island dew

But tradewinds that pass me in the day
Tell me that your love has gone away
I wish and hope and wait as they blow by
And wait for tradewinds passing in the night



Picture Puzzle (Larry W. Jones 08/18/2004) (song#3397)

 

Well, I was in the laundrymat
Doin’ my clothes washin’ chores
There on the table was where it sat
A picture puzzle of island shores

Somebody had started it, then quit
Just ran out of time, I suppose
So, I picked up some pieces to fit
Tried to fill in where tradewinds blows

She was a beautiful picture, that I know
But I couldn’t find the most important part
Something I left behind, I suppose
Cause on that island lies my broken heart

Some pieces of the puzzle I couldn’t find
Why she left me is still undefined
I left my heart and a part of my mind
Back on an island somewhere in time

She was a beautiful picture, that I know
But I couldn’t find the most important part
Something I left behind, I suppose
Cause on that island lies my broken heart

Some pieces of the puzzle I couldn’t find
Why she left me is still undefined
I left my heart and a part of my mind
Back on an island somewhere in time



Rose Of Islands Fair (Larry W. Jones 08/18/2004) (song#3398)

 

Oh, my lovely rose of islands fair
Sweetest island rose that I know
You’re a blossom beyond compare
Among flowers where breezes blow

You’re my sunshine and my dream come true
And to the world I will declare
That I’ll forever be in love with you
My lovely rose of islands fair

Oh, the tropic sun shone like polished brass
On the lovely bays of islands there
As I strolled with this sweet island lass
One evening in the balmy air

Her eyes were as the sparkling streams
Red hibiscus in her long black hair
That’s when I knew I’d found my dreams
Wrapped in my lovely rose of islands fair

As we strolled under twilight skies
We watched the shorebirds by the sea
And even the birds of paradise
Sang songs of love for her and me

I’ll never say farewell to island sun
Nor to all the beauty I found there
For I have claimed the heart of one
My lovely rose of islands fair



This Sweet Moment (Larry W. Jones 08/19/2004) (song#3399)

 

You and I, dear one, have found together
This sweet moment by the sea
The murmuring breeze brings kindly weather
And gentle Lililehua rain in Palolo valley

A balmy breeze so soft and lovely
Sweeps over the island constantly
Just as my feelings for you only
Your love is breath and life for me

A fragrance saturates the breeze
Lehua blossoms grow with ease
As my love grows for you each day
A love I know will never fade away

The sweet song of Amakihi birds
Called me to find a reason to rejoice
And from the very moment that I heard
My heart was warmed by your sweet voice

You and I, dear one, have found together
This sweet moment by the sea
A balmy breeze so soft and lovely
Your love is breath and life for me



Thirty Four Hundred (Larry W. Jones 08/19/2004) (song#3400)

 

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

If you ever ask me how long for you my love will be
Thirty four hundred lifetimes, then we would wait and see
If I could do it over, not a thing would I ever change
I could sing you island songs of love that I’ve arranged

If you ever ask me how deep for you my love will be
I can only tell you that my love is deeper than the sea
Thirty four hundred fathoms down lives cousin Davy Jones
Says I’ve got more songs to write about these tropic zones

Thirty four hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Thirty four 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 four hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun
