I’m Sailin’ Home Lani (Larry W. Jones 02/06/2005) (song#3601)

Oh, I’ve been sailin’ night and day
Sailin’ on a summer breeze
I’m comin’ home from Mandalay
Returnin’ from the seven seas

I’m sailin’ home Lani, Lani
I’m sailin’ home Lani, Lani
I’m sailin’ home Lani, Lani
And I’ll ask you to be mine

The wahini I love was born in Maui
She’s adorned with hula hips
My heart jumps and shouts wowee
Every time I kiss her ruby lips

I’m sailin’ home Lani, Lani
I’m sailin’ home Lani, Lani
I’m sailin’ home Lani, Lani
And I’ll ask you to be mine

Her long black hair flows in the breeze
She’s the Hawaiian apple of my eye
Her sweet voice is oh, so heavenly
Just as sweet as pineapple pie

I’m sailin’ home Lani, Lani
I’m sailin’ home Lani, Lani
I’m sailin’ home Lani, Lani
And I’ll ask you to be mine

So, get that wedding party ready
I’m heading for a wedding ring
It’s time for those sweet Maui chimes
And everybody’s gonna sing

I’m sailin’ home Lani, Lani
I’m sailin’ home Lani, Lani
I’m sailin’ home Lani, Lani
And this time I’m gonna make you mine



Sailin’ Back To Maui Sand (Larry W. Jones 02/07/2005) (song#3602)

Well, there’s no doubt that I’ll be leavin’
There’s something about this mainland grievin’
But now my heart is feelin’ grand
The ocean’ll be revealin’ Maui island sand
Gonna trade cold city lights for tiki lights
Gonna hold a big luau down by the bay
I’m gonna renew my dear old Maui island rights
I won’t be blue when I get under way

Yes, back to old Maui isle I’m returnin’
Been too long awhile that I’ve been yearnin’
To see my Maui island home again
I can hear steel guitars ringing
Hear those birds of paradise singing
Sounds sweet as Maui island sugar cane
Old talk stories island folks are tellin’
Sweet lehua blossoms I’m a-smellin’
I’m boardin’ that ship for mem’ry lane

I’m goin’ back, back to Maui
That island where I know I belong
I’m goin’ back, back to Maui
Gonna find my love and stroll along
Kinfolks there will be glad to see me
Dear ol’ mom and dad will understand
I’ll be waving to the palms across the sea
Cause I’m sailin’ back to Maui sand



I’m In Love And She’s In Maui (Larry W. Jones 02/09/2005) (song#3603)

Well, I know my face looks kinda long
My eyes are focused in a frown
I guess my smile is way long gone
And here’s the reason I’m feelin’ down

I’m in love and she’s in Maui
I’m as blue as a cowboy can be
I wish I knew if she still loves me
Or is her island driftin’ away from me

I’m in love and she’s in Maui
Strollin’ by that peaceful pacific sea
I wonder if an old dream from Texas
Can reach all the way to old Maui

I thought for sure that I’d a-heard
From her in old Lahaina town
But so far, I haven’t heard a word
Since that day when the sun went down

Well, I’m over here workin’ hard
That’s the way cowboys are
I guess I lost in that regard
Tryin’ to find my dream and star

I’m in love and she’s in Maui
I’m as blue as a cowboy can be
I wish I knew if she still loves me
Or is her island driftin’ away from me

I’m in love and she’s in Maui
Strollin’ by that peaceful pacific sea
I wonder if an old dream from Texas
Can reach all the way to old Maui



You And I Will Be Just One (Larry W. Jones 02/12/2005) (song#3604)

Well, I’ve told the red lehua flowers
That somewhere ahead are happy hours
When I stroll in the tradewind air with you

And I have to tell you that as a rover
My lonesome sailing days are over
I’m mailing my heart to only you

Yes, I’ve told the paradise birds
I’ve told the honey bees
I’ve told the palm trees with the words
Just how it is that I love you

I’ve told the golden moon
I’ve told the tropic sun
I’ve told the stars that soon
You and I will be just one

The joy I feel, I’ve just gotta show
To the whole world and isles where tradewinds blow

In the shaded little stream
I’ve persuaded the fish there too
That it’s my wish for this island dream
To be shared with only you

Yes, I’ve told the paradise birds
I’ve told the honey bees
I’ve told the palm trees with the words
Just how it is that I love you

I’ve told the golden moon
I’ve told the tropic sun
I’ve told the stars that soon
You and I will be just one



Thorn Of The Rose (Larry W. Jones 02/12/2005) (song#3605)

Here I stroll on the isle of Alohaland
Where breakers roll, I’m all alone
Tradewinds call, but I don’t understand
Oh, if I had only known

Honey bees and the snow white tuberose
Whisper of a love that once was true
But as I stroll here where the tradewind blows
There’s no greeting of Aloha from you

Sweet as a tuberose was my love for you
But you drifted away with the tide
My one big regret is that I can’t forget
How you took away my joy and my pride

Once we strolled together here in Hawaii blue
But Aloha ‘oe said that we must part
The sweet tuberose of the isle, it was you
Now, as your love goes, a thorn of the rose
Grows here in my heart



Many Leagues Of Open Sea (Larry W. Jones 02/12/2005) (song#3606)

This eve, I watch the golden sands
Fade as I sail for foreign lands
At the rail I wring my nervous hands
For love that was never meant to be
Tomorrow, many leagues of open sea
Will lie between your love and me
Tomorrow, many leagues of open sea
Will lie between your love and me

Your lips I kissed and felt your hair
My heart was trembling standing there
Aloha was a word so soft and fair
Please wait for my return, is my plea
Tomorrow, many leagues of open sea
Will lie between your love and me
Tomorrow, many leagues of open sea
Will lie between your love and me

Oh, please say our wait won’t be in vain
Each hour will be of woe and pain
Until I return to your isle again
To reclaim a love not meant to be
Tomorrow, many leagues of open sea
Will lie between your love and me
Tomorrow, many leagues of open sea
Will lie between your love and me



In Warm Hawaiian Sand (Larry W. Jones 02/12/2005) (song#3607)

Far across the wide pacific sea
The tide will bring your love to me
Hear tradewinds calling tenderly
Calling your sweet love for me

In warm Hawaiian sand
In warm Hawaiian sand
Underneath the palms
You and I will roam
In warm Hawaiian sand
In warm Hawaiian sand
Underneath the moon
We’ll make our island home

Sail this ship along
Over oceans blue
Rainbows will shine so strong
With every shade and hue
There my love awaits
With love so true
I’ll be in warm Hawaiian sand
Along with you

In warm Hawaiian sand
In warm Hawaiian sand
Underneath the palms
You and I will roam
In warm Hawaiian sand
In warm Hawaiian sand
Underneath the moon
We’ll make our island home



Our Island Of Dreams (Larry W. Jones 02/13/2005)(song#3608)

Whenever my heart feels low and sad
And this old world is cold with chill
I hear your sweet voice and I’m so glad
When you tell me that you love me still

I love to just sit and talk to you
About oceans and valley streams
And sweet flowers wet with dew
On the island of our dreams

On that lovely island of our dreams
Sorrow is never spoken of, nor pain
Troubles aren’t allowed there, it seems
For there are rainbows through the rain

Let’s leave this old world with its cold and chill
And sail away to where the sunlight gleams
Far over the sea we’ll go, you and me
To home sweet home on our island of dreams



Little Grass Shanty Shack (Larry W. Jones 02/13/2005) (song#3609)

I’ve climbed the corporate ladder with the best
But it’s time to head back out to sea
Gonna shed this life for a little rest
On an island that I love best
And the place I’m thinkin’ of is old Maui

I know it’s only a little shanty shack
A penny ante place in old Lahaina town
But nothing can replace my going back
To that little grass shanty shack I’ve found

Soon I’ll be setting sails and tack
Back to the pale moonlight shining down
On that slanty roof of my little grass shanty shack
Over in old Lahaina town

I’ve lived like a king with money and everything
But happiness is what money couldn’t bring
I’ll find a wahine honey I can give my kingly crown
In my little grass shanty shack in old Lahaina town

I know it’s only a little shanty shack
A penny ante place in old Lahaina town
But nothing can replace my going back
To that little grass shanty shack I’ve found

I’ll find a wahine honey I can give my kingly crown
In my little grass shanty shack in old Lahaina town



Honolulu And Waikiki (Larry W. Jones 02/13/2005) (song#3610)

The moon shines down on Honolulu and Waikiki
Over on that island in the sea
My thoughts come around to that ukulele sound
Over in old dreamy Hawaii
Dream away, my polynesian lady
Try to dream a little dream of me
You’re still supreme in my island themes
When I dream of Honolulu and Waikiki

The same old tropic moon shines over there
Over Honolulu and Waikiki
Those same ukulele tunes still fill the air
Always calling back to me
Dream away, my polynesian lady
Try to dream a little dream of me
You’re still supreme in my island themes
When I dream of Honolulu and Waikiki

Every night still brings the song she sings
When we bid Aloha ‘oe goodbye
Tradewinds still bring that ukulele ring
That makes my lonely heart still sigh
Dream away, my polynesian lady
Try to dream a little dream of me
You’re still supreme in my island themes
When I dream of Honolulu and Waikiki



How To Buy Paradise (Larry W. Jones 02/13/2005) (song#3611)

A tall Texan from Dallas arrived in Hawaii’s fair isles
He looked at Oahu with a gleam and a smile
I think I’ll buy it, and then here I’ll abide
Just how to do it, someone told him with pride

First, you’ll have to buy the moon up above
Also, try to buy tropical stars in the skies
Then you must buy a mother’s ohana love
Only then can you buy paradise

God up above created this place with a smile
The mountains, the valleys, rainbows in the skies
If you can buy heavenly things that beguile
Only then can you buy paradise

God up above created this place with a smile
The mountains, the valleys, rainbows in the skies
If you can buy heavenly things that beguile
Only then can you buy paradise



Golden Sands Of Home (Larry W. Jones 02/14/2005) (song#3612)

My island home still looks the same
The tropic sun’s a setting flame
And there to meet me is makuahine, makua kane
Down the shore runs sweet Kalani
Flowing hair and lips like honey
It’s good to stroll the golden sands of home

The tradewinds called them there to meet me
Holding hand in hand so sweetly
It’s good to stroll the golden sands of home

The little cottage is so inviting
When the tiki flames are being lighted
And there’s that old pandanus tree I carved her name on
On the shore I’ll stroll with sweet Kalani
Flowing hair and lips like honey
It’s good to stroll the golden sands of home

Then I awake and all around me
Sad faces I know surround me
Paradise was only in my dreamin’
The captain and my mates sail o’er the foam
Into the harbor we’ll sail at dawn
Oh, how I wish to stroll the golden sands of home

Yes, they’ll all gather there to meet me
In the shade of that green pandanus tree
As they lay me ‘neath
The golden sands of home



My Little Island In The Stream (Larry W. Jones 02/14/2005) (song#3613)

Come and stroll along with me
On my little island in the stream
Come and dream a little dream
On my little island in the stream

Under the moonlight, my love
In my arms, you, I’ll embrace
Stars will twinkle up above
In this paradise island place

You and I will always stay
On my little island in the stream
We’ll just be two castaways
On my little island in the stream

Somehow I always knew
I’d find someone with whom to dream
So, Aloha E Komo Mai
To my little island in the stream

You and I will always stay
On my little island in the stream
We’ll just be two castaways
On my little island in the stream

Somehow I always knew
I’d find someone with whom to dream
So, Aloha E Komo Mai
To my little island in the stream



On My Isle (Larry W. Jones 02/14/2005) (song#3614)

I know an isle where I can go
There’s a secret place that I love so
On my isle
On my isle

On my isle, there are no tears
No more worries, no more fears
On my isle
On my isle

It’s where I do all my dreaming
When the tropic moon is gold and beaming
No more crying, no more sighing
Not even fear of death and dying
There I’ll go and stay today

And if I have to stroll alone
I’ll be warm in my tropic zone
Each day will be worthwhile
Each day I’ll try to smile
On my isle
On my isle



That Tahitian Polynesian Sea (Larry W. Jones 02/14/2005) (song#3615)

In that Tahitian polynesian sea
I found a love and happiness
In that Tahitian polynesian sea
We were young, our hearts were free
As she surrendered to my kiss

Polynesian stars twinkled in her eyes
There were no bars to our paradise
Twilight brought with it love’s song
But it might as well have never come along
How could I tell that she’d be gone

My lonely heart is now in need
Return to me is now what I plea
For my dream is still as strong
In that Tahitian polynesian sea

Twilight brought with it love’s song
But it might as well have never come along
How could I tell that she’d be gone

My lonely heart is now in need
Return to me is now what I plea
For my dream is still as strong
In that Tahitian polynesian sea



Aloha Mai In Waikiki (Larry W. Jones 02/14/2005) (song#3616)

Aloha mai, was what she said to me
Aloha mai, on the shores of Waikiki
My world was blue, blue as the sea
But Aloha mai sounded as friendly as can be

She was one in a million, or even more
Her E Komo Mai welcomed me to her shore
She seemed to hesitate, seemed to wait for me
On that Hawaiian isle, I lingered with her awhile
Her Aloha mai with her Aloha smile
Was all that paradise should be

Aloha mai, from this lovely island miss
Aloha mai, and I stole a little kiss
Her sweet smile was expressed in island style
And her Aloha mai filled my heart with bliss

But it wasn’t only what she said
That still rings here in my head
With her hula sway, she stole my heart away
And the rest, I guess you can guess
We strolled together hand in hand
In that Waikiki island sand
And when I asked if she would marry me
She said, Aloha mai, we’ll see
And I took that to be her answer yes

In blue Hawaii, beneath those starry skies
I didn’t know the lingo, but it was in her eyes
Aloha mai, and E Ke Aloha sounded grand
Where tradewinds blow, my heart went bingo
Over in Hawaii’s Waikiki golden sand



In The Blue Hawaiian Evening (Larry W. Jones 02/15/2005) (song#3617)

In the blue Hawaiian evening
When you and I are close by the sea
When twilight there is king
A reverie we’ll share
That just you and I know how to sing

In the blue Hawaiian evening
All the tropic stars will come a-calling
Some might even start a-falling
Close enough to paradise
That I’ll see them in your eyes

In twilight shadows you and I will be
I’ll hold you to my heart, and then
As the tradewinds whisper lovingly
Your lips and mine will meet again

In the blue Hawaiian evening
Birds of paradise will fly and take a glance
And try to understand this new romance
In the blue Hawaiian evening
In the blue Hawaiian evening



Under The Red Lehua Tree (Larry W. Jones 02/20/2005) (song#3618)

Under the red lehua tree
Love in your brown eyes I could see
And the sound that I heard
I found had my heart stirred
As tradewinds whispered love beside the sea

As I heard, once more, the call of the sea
Under the red lehua tree, you said to me
These words of love that I’m stating are so true
And I promise I’ll be waiting here for you
Under the red lehua tree

As soft as the buzz of the bee
As sweet as lehua blossoms by the sea
So will be our love eternally
I promise that to you I will be true
And that soon I’ll come sailing back to you

Under the red lehua tree
Love in your brown eyes I could see
And the sound that I heard
I found had my heart stirred
As tradewinds whispered love beside the sea

As I heard, once more, the call of the sea
Under the red lehua tree, you said to me
These words of love that I’m stating are so true
And I promise I’ll be waiting here for you
Under the red lehua tree



In My Heart (Larry W. Jones 02/20/2005) (song#3619)


Now I know I really know you
And it’s more than just your smile
Now I know that I can show you
Everlasting love here on this isle

Some have said that love’s a thread
That comes unravelled in the end
But the path down which our love has led
Will never need to make amends

In my heart, you’ll find protected all your dreams
In my heart, you’ll find your rainbow’s golden gleams
In my heart, you’ll find all the reasons on this shore
Why my heart calls out to you, and will forevermore

Some old folks say there will come changes
Even where the tradewind blows
And one never knows what time rearranges
Or even if a love will climb and grow
But like an everlasting island tiki flame
In my heart, my love for you will always be the same

In my heart, you’ll find protected all your dreams
In my heart, you’ll find your rainbow’s golden gleams
In my heart, you’ll find all the reasons on this shore
Why my heart calls out to you, and will forevermore

In my heart, you’ll find all the reasons on this shore
Why my heart calls out to you, and will forevermore



Steel Guitars Pickup Trucks (Larry W. Jones 02/20/2004) (song#3620)

Girl, you taught this Texas cowboy
How to face the future feelin’ glad
I’m no longer sad

You showed me how Lahaina town can turn up dreams
It’s a lesson of how a Texan’s feet
Can be transplanted in the ocean streams
And how a taste of pineapple pie
Could turn out to be so sweet

Now it’s steel guitars, pickup trucks, Hawaiian music
And you, that keeps this Hawaiian cowboy
Hangin’ on across the foam
Yeah, it’s steel guitars, pickup trucks, Hawaiian music
Old Lahaina town is where I now call home

I left behind the glamour of that big mainland
That seemed to only waste my life
Mainland scars are healing in this warm Hawaiian sand
Ever since you said you’d be my wife

Now it’s steel guitars, pickup trucks, Hawaiian music
And you, that keeps this Hawaiian cowboy
Hangin’ on across the foam
Yeah, it’s steel guitars, pickup trucks, Hawaiian music
Old Lahaina town is where I now call home

Now it’s steel guitars, pickup trucks, Hawaiian music
And you, that keeps this Hawaiian cowboy
Hangin’ on across the foam
Yeah, it’s steel guitars, pickup trucks, Hawaiian music
Old Lahaina town is where I now call home



Steel Guitars Pickup Trucks (Larry W. Jones 02/20/2004) (song#3620)

Every time she goes strolling through my mind
She brings back those same old memories
Every night in the dim light I always find
How I lack the happiness of her island seas

Like a rhyme, half passed nine, she’s right on time
Every time she goes strolling through my mind
It’s taking a toll each and every time

Every time I hear those same sweet Maui chimes
I shed a tear over dreams that seem sublime
Every time she goes strolling through my mind

There’s no use to try to drown it in some wine
Cause I’d still see her strolling through Lahaina town
Dreams come rolling even though she’s not around
Every time she goes strolling through my mind

Like a rhyme, half passed nine, she’s right on time
Every time she goes strolling through my mind
It’s taking a toll each and every time

Dreams come rolling even though she’s not around
Every time she goes strolling through my mind



Tradewinds And Sunshine (Larry W. Jones 02/20/2005) (song#3622)

People say that every life will know
When the raindrops fall
But only the rainbows are falling in mine
People say that every heart will know
When teardrops fall
But I only know the tradewinds and sunshine

Island folks can choose to keep the blues from their heart
And I refuse to let those dark clouds start
Some people show that only rain and tears combine
But I only know the tradewinds and sunshine

Spoken:
People say that every life will know
When the raindrops fall
But only the rainbows are falling in mine
People say that every heart will know
When teardrops fall
But I only know the tradewinds and sunshine

Island folks can choose to keep the blues from their heart
And I refuse to let those dark clouds start
Some people show that only rain and tears combine
But I only know the tradewinds and sunshine



The Life Of Riley (Larry W. Jones 02/20/2005) (song#3623)

Valley streams run with claret fine
In palm trees sing the yellow canary
The bays are filled with tidal wine
All to make your heart feel merry

And there is even more than this
That you can behold
Waterfalls all flow with brandy
And just in case you should miss
Beaches are made of refined gold
And fields of cane are sugar candy

There’s nothing but sunny days
And island music without measure
I can only speak with praise
Of this island and its treasure

And there is even more than this
That you can behold
Waterfalls all flow with brandy
And just in case you should miss
Beaches are made of refined gold
And fields of cane are sugar candy

It’s here that I lead a lazy life
The life of Riley, free from labor
By the way, don’t tell my wife
She’d go and tell the neighbor



Down To The Shores Of Tahiti (Larry W. Jones 02/20/2005) (song#3624)

The southern star will be my guide
As I sail away on the summer tide
Just like a bird before the wind
I sail for southern shores again

There’s no other sounds around
Save for the waves o’re which I bound
In the distance I hear the fading roar
Of another island and another shore

From night til morn I’ll sail the sea
Til I reach the shores of Tahiti
From night til morn I’ll sail the sea
Til I reach the shores of Tahiti

The mainland is not the place for me
It has not the music of the sea
Out on the sea’s where I belong
Sailing in the breeze all day long

The song is soft from across the deep
Summer sea winds ‘oft make me sleep
I give thanks for weather warm and calm
To Him who rules the calm and storm

Oh, how sweet to sail on the summer sea
Down to the shores of Tahiti
Oh, how sweet to sail on the summer sea
Down to the shores of Tahiti



Down Along The Island Sand (Larry W. Jones 02/21/2005) (song#3625)

Somewhere in my fondest dreams
Down along the island sand
I’m kissing again, missing again
Someone down along the island sand

It all happened by old Hana bay
Seems like a short time ago
I met a new love by old Hana bay
Down where the tradewinds blow

Steel guitars and tropic stars
And lips as sweet as wine
A heart was broken there in time
And one of them I know was mine

It all happened by old Hana bay
I never even thought about it twice
I left her there and sailed away
Sailed away from her and paradise

My empty heart sings a broken song
Of a love that could be mine today
If I was still there where I belong
Down along the island sand by Hana bay



Friendly Aloha Way (Larry W. Jones 02/21/2005) (song#3626)

You can feel the tradewinds blow
Wherever you may go
Whatever you may do
Just spread a little Aloha when you go
Look for that rainbow
In your skies of blue

It doesn’t cost a lot
Like a brand new costly yacht
But it goes that extra mile
Every time you smile and say
Aloha E Komo Mai
You’re a pretty girl, or a handsome guy
It’s the friendly Aloha way

Give a helping hand when trouble’s near
They’ll understand and find some cheer
It doesn’t cost a lot
Like a brand new costly yacht
But it goes that extra mile
Every time you smile and say

Aloha E Komo Mai
You’re a pretty girl, or a handsome guy
It’s the friendly Aloha way



Lehua Blossom Time (Larry W. Jones 02/21/2005) (song#3627)

Those red buds will soon be lehua blossoms
Island blue birds will sing by the sea
Springtime and the moon should be awesome
So, why won’t true love bloom for me

There’s no sweet Maui chimes
In lehua blossom time
The tropic sunshine doesn’t smile
On a love no longer there

There’s no sweet Maui chimes
In lehua blossom time
Cause here on this golden isle
Aloha love’s not in the air

Notes of island love, it seems
Have departed from the old mill stream
Brokenhearted is now the theme
Of my empty island dreams

I know I would hear sweet Maui chimes
In lehua blossom time
If only you’d be there
So I could place a lehua blossom in your hair



It Might As Well Be Paradise (Larry W. Jones 02/21/2005) (song#3628)

I’m as unsteady as a ship in a gale
I’m as batty as a bat when it flies
I know island fever very well
But I didn’t know this was paradise

My eyes are filled with stars, I can tell
Every time the moon’s on the rise
Island fever fills the air
Just like the tradewind fills a sail
It’s akin to isles of paradise

It just occured that my mind’s a little blurred
As I’m strolling slowly by the bay
Island fever is severe from words that I still hear
From an island girl I met just yesterday

I’m now occupied in being so tongue tied
That I need someone to offer me advice
This island fever that I’ve got
Well, I like it quite a lot
It might as well be paradise

This island fever that I’ve got
Well, I like it quite a lot
It might as well be paradise



My Heart Only Hurts When It Cries (Larry W. Jones 02/21/2005) (song#3629)

The only time it don’t feel right
Is in the daytime and at night
And I never think of you at all
Except for when the islands call
The truth is I don’t tell many lies
My heart only hurts when it cries

Once in a while I still can smile
But not like I did back on the isle
The money I make, I find I spend
On a broken heart that time won’t mend
At times it feels like a big earthquake
Every time I feel the pieces break

The only time it don’t feel right
Is in the daytime and at night
And I never think of you at all
Except for when the islands call
The truth is I don’t tell many lies
My heart only hurts when it cries

Yesterday when I heard the soft tradewind
My heart had an earthquake again
But nobody else could even see
These chains that won’t set me free
Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever survive
And if a new love will never arrive

The only time it don’t feel right
Is in the daytime and at night
And I never think of you at all
Except for when the islands call
The truth is I don’t tell many lies
My heart only hurts when it cries

The truth is I don’t tell many lies
My heart only hurts when it cries



Only A Monemt In Time (Larry W. Jones 02/21/2005) (song#3630)

It took several hundred years
To settle islands where soft tradewinds blow
But it only took one moonlight clear
To fall in love with you, I know

It took days and days of tropic sunshine
To grow island flowers fresh and new
But it only took a moment in time
To tell my heart that I’m in love with you

No, I didn’t have to spend a lifetime
To comprehend a dream come true
It only took those sweet Maui chimes
To compose a song of love for you

A million stars up there still shine
In a tropical sky of velvet blue
And I’m so glad that you’re now mine
This moment will last til time is through

It took days and days of tropic sunshine
To grow island flowers fresh and new
But it only took a moment in time
To tell my heart that I’m in love with you

A million stars up there still shine
In a tropical sky of velvet blue
And I’m so glad that you’re now mine
This moment will last til time is through



Amanda Ramona Marie (Larry W. Jones 02/22/2005) (song#3631)

In a sleepy Texas seaside town
On the gulf of Mexico
There’s a lovely senorita nice and brown
That I love so

Amanda Ramona Marie
In Corpus Christi she’s waiting for me
Amanda Ramona Marie
My lovely senorita by the sea

I’ll return to that Texas coast someday
On the gulf of Mexico
For there on Corpus Christi bay
Amanda waits for me, I know

Amanda Ramona Marie
In my arms I’ll hold you once again
Please wait for me until then
My Amanda Ramona Marie

Amanda Ramona Marie
In my arms I’ll hold you once again
Please wait for me until then
My Amanda Ramona Marie



This Sad Song (Larry W. Jones 02/22/2005) (song#3632)

Once upon a time
Someone special came along
Your feet were strolling next to mine
It was like an island song

The tropic moon was up above
Up there where it belongs
Shining down on hearts in love
It was like an island song

That whole year I dearly remember
As tears fall on love’s dying ember
It was such a lovely year
How I wish that island song was here

It was like an island song
But now it’s gone into the night
My broken heart will only last as long
As this sad song that I now have to write

It was like an island song
But now it’s gone into the night
My broken heart will only last as long
As this sad song that I now have to write



What A Beautiful Island (Larry W. Jones 02/27/2005) (song#3633)

What a beautiful island
What a lovely evening
What a beautiful island for falling in love

The moon is high in paradise
The stars tonight know just what’s right
Right with the lovelight in your eyes

And as soft as the breeze
Every sigh you give is to please
Even the palm trees sway to our love

Darling, it feels so right
When I kiss and hold you tight
On this beautiful island of love

The moon is high in paradise
The stars tonight know just what’s right
Right with the lovelight in your eyes

What a beautiful island
What a lovely evening
What a beautiful island for falling in love



Hanohano Lumaha’i (Larry W. Jones 02/27/2005) (song#3634)

On Kaua’i lies the beach called Lumaha’i
Hanohano O Lumaha’i it is called
Glorious and beautiful is Lumaha’i
Where sea meets the cliffs steeply walled

And Lumaha’i is the stream flowing seaward
Soft is the rain falling on the trees
Lovely is the song of the knowing seabird
Soaring Over Hanalei and Lumaha’i

Hanohano O pua lehua
Royal blossom of island ali’i
There it grows for bringing awe
To the golden sands of Lumaha’i

Oh, how famed are you, Lumaha’i
Named with honor on Kaua’i
From far away come ones to meet you
Island drums, your song will beat forever new

Ha’ina ‘ia mai ka puana la mau loa
Tell the refrain forevermore
Of hanohano Lumaha’i
The famous beach at Kaua’i



Dandy Night For Singing (Larry W. Jones 02/27/2005) (song#3635)

It’s a dandy night for singing
The sandy beach is paradise
Steel guitars are always ringing
In the balmy tropic skies

It’s a dandy night for singing
About the stars shining up above
And the golden moon is handy
When it comes to falling in love

But it’s not just the sandy beach
It’s more than all the steel guitars
It’s more or less one of each
Of every little thing that you are

It’s a dandy night here by the bay
Like brandy is a lovely brew
And it’s just the Aloha way
When I say that I’m in love with you

It’s a dandy night for singing
The sandy beach is paradise
Steel guitars are always ringing
In the balmy tropic skies

It’s a dandy night for singing
About the stars shining up above
And the golden moon is handy
When it comes to falling in love

It’s a dandy night here by the bay
Like brandy is a lovely brew
And it’s just the Aloha way
When I say that I’m in love with you



Tomorrow Is A Pretty Day (Larry W. Jones 02/28/2005) (song#3636)

I know there was sorrow yesterday
But tomorrow is a pretty day
So, come and cast your weeping eyes
On a tropical island’s deep blue skies

I know yesterday was cold and dreary
But tomorrow over there is a brand new day
Don’t let your life grow old and weary
Get rid of strife with sand and Aloha way

Yesterday was beget by trial and trouble
But you can forget them on the double
Just go to a tropical island far away
For there, tomorrow is a pretty day

I know there was sorrow yesterday
But tomorrow is a pretty day
So, come and cast your weeping eyes
On a tropical island’s deep blue skies

Yesterday was beget by trial and trouble
But you can forget them on the double
Just go to a tropical island far away
For there, tomorrow is a pretty day



It’s A Maui Maui Isle (Larry W. Jones 02/28/2005) (song#3637)

It’s an isle of laughter
There’s no room for tears
It’s an isle of love everafter
The moonlight casts no fears
It’s an isle where all there share
Where Aloha is in the air
It’s a Maui isle after all

It’s a Maui isle after all
It’s very Maui when Maui calls
It’s a Maui isle after all
It’s a Maui, Maui isle

There’s always a golden tropic moon
And the fiery blaze of the setting sun
You’ll find that a smile will soon
Be combined with love for everyone
Take each day at a slower stride
On a sandy beach by oceans wide
It’s a Maui isle after all

It’s a Maui isle after all
It’s very Maui when Maui calls
It’s a Maui isle after all
It’s a Maui, Maui isle



That’s All Ended Now (Larry W. Jones 02/28/2005) (song#3638)

My arms once held you
Where island breezes blow
But that’s all ended now
I used to whisper splendid little things
That you said set your heart aglow
But that’s all ended now

I never told you any lies
Never a word to deceive
What went wrong in paradise
What didn’t you believe

Remember that little island home
That we would build by the old mill stream
I still think of it today
Why’d you sail away across the foam
With not a trail to find and fill my dream
A dream that still I have today

I always hoped that things would work out
Pretended happiness somehow
That’s what my love for you was all about
But that’s all ended now
That’s what my love for you was all about
But that’s all ended now



An Old Hawaiian Custom (Larry W. Jones 02/28/2005) (song#3639)

It’s an old Hawaiian custom
When you’re strolling down the sand
To say Aloha and good morning
Now don’t you think that’s kinda grand

It’s an old Hawaiian custom
To smile from ear to ear
That’s the best way to become
Filled with Hawaiian cheer

If a wahine meets a gentleman
Like in island days Territorial
And the wahine and the gentleman
Speak of things matrimonial

They’ll stroll together in the sun
And in the balmy soft twilight
Love is an old Hawaiian custom
That makes paradise all right



Everybody’s Paradise (Larry W. Jones 02/28/2005) (song#3640)

Some think that money is the only prize
But an island is everybody’s paradise
A few have gold and houses big in size
But everybody knows an island’s paradise

If you’re the man with the big bank roll
Don’t think that everybody cares
Cause anybody can take a stroll
On an island in the tradewind air

Of more value than pearls you apprise
Is the golden yellow tropic moon
It’s one topic that’s found in paradise
That makes even a poor man swoon

Some can buy a ticket to the stars
But money won’t make a rich man wise
I’d rather listen to steel guitars
An island is everybody’s paradise

Some can buy a ticket to the stars
But money won’t make a rich man wise
I’d rather listen to steel guitars
An island is everybody’s paradise

It’s Been A Long Time (Larry W. Jones 02/28/2005) (song#3641)

It’s been a long time, sweetheart
Since the day I sailed away
It’s been a long time, sweetheart
Since I left you standing by the bay
And though you never wrote about it
You must have cried when I was gone
It’s been a long time, sweetheart
But today I’ll be sailin’ home

It’s been a long time, sweetheart
Since I strolled the sands of paradise
It’s been a long time, sweetheart
Since I saw the the lovelight in your eyes
I hope you realize that missing you
Has my heart broken through and through
It’s been a long time, sweetheart
But today I’m sailin’ back to you

It’s been a long time, sweetheart
How you’ve managed, I don’t know how
It’s been a long time, sweetheart
Now it’s time to fulfill my every vow
I only hope that all your waiting
Will mean that I’ll be welcomed back again
It’s been a long time, sweetheart
I can’t wait to be back where I’ve been

It’s been a long time, sweetheart
Since I strolled the sands of paradise
It’s been a long time, sweetheart
Since I saw the the lovelight in your eyes
I hope you realize that missing you
Has my heart broken through and through
It’s been a long time, sweetheart
But today I’m sailin’ back to you



I Can’t Remember To Remember (Larry W. Jones 02/28/2005) (song#3642)

I don’t need to remember to remember
It comes so easily
About all those smiles you gave me
When we were strolling by the sea
I don’t need to remember to remember
About the day we met
Darling, the only thing that I regret
I can’t remember to remember to forget

I remember when I heard you whisper
Aloha, ku’u ipo, I’ll always love you
Now that it’s over, I have but one regret
I can’t remember to remember to forget

So, I guess I’ll go to sleep and dream
About your hand once more in mine
Even though our love’s a dying ember
Each night I remember one more time
But I’d rather go to sleep and dream
About you one more time
Cause I don’t need to remember to remember
That back on the island you were mine

I remember when I heard you whisper
Aloha, ku’u ipo, I’ll always love you
Now that it’s over, I have but one regret
I can’t remember to remember to forget



It’s Not For Me To Know (Larry W. Jones 03/01/2005) (song#3643)

It’s not for me to know
If tomorrow you’ll still love me
It’s not for me to know
If you’ll stay on this island in the sea

But, oh, the tradewinds surely know
That I want our love to last
For tradewinds whisper soft and low
Use those arms to hold her fast

Twilight with you is like heaven
I can feel love in the air
Love that only two can share

Maybe tomorrow love will grow and grow
It would bring sorrow if we never met again
But until then
It’s not for me to know

Maybe tomorrow love will grow and grow
It would bring sorrow if we never met again
But until then
It’s not for me to know



An Old Island Song (Larry W. Jones 03/01/2005) (song#3644)

There’s an old island song that I once sang
Now those words have come to mind again
About a love that once was fresh and new
Of an island girl that I once knew

And the words of that old island song
Still tells my heart where it belongs
I wonder if she ever thinks of me
When strolling on her island in the sea

It was there underneath clear skies of blue
That paradise and love together grew
Then came the end of that old island song
But old mem’ries now are just as strong

I know I’ll not return to her fair shore
But not forgotten are the songs we sang
Words of love are in my heart forevermore
Though I’ll sing that old island song in vain

There’s an old island song that I once sang
Now those words have come to mind again
About a love that once was fresh and new
Of an island girl that I once knew



Tomorrow Is Nigh (Larry W. Jones 03/01/2005) (song#3645)

My own dearest darling, tomorrow is nigh
The sun will bring gladness in this paradise
My lips will be smiling, my eyes, they will shine
For I know tomorrow that you’ll still be mine

Tomorrow is nigh, paradise will be too
Your kisses now tell me that your love is true
And my love is forever, on this isle divine
Tomorrow is nigh, and will reply that you’re mine

Your heart is so warm, may it never turn cold
We’ll both face the storm even as we grow old
Tomorrow is nigh, we’ll both welcome the sun
There’ll be no sorrow with paradise won

Tomorrow is nigh, paradise will be too
Your kisses now tell me that your love is true
And my love is forever, on this isle divine
Tomorrow is nigh, and will reply that you’re mine



Our Paradise Is Over (Larry W. Jones 03/01/2005) (song#3646)

Father Time is a moving man
I wish I could make him stay
Then our love here in island sand
Would always stay this way
But here it is a new found day
And Father Time is still a rover
Oh, why must it end this way
Our paradise is over

Now that you’ve strolled away from me
I’m an empty man without your hand
Father Time keeps pace with the sun
Shadows erase a love that was grand
As I watch you stroll away
I know that I will never find another
The play has ended with this day
Our paradise is over

If you really know how I feel at times
Then you know I long to return, and yet
Would I still hear sweet Maui chimes
Would I find the love I can’t forget
If there were a way to start again somehow
Instead of sand, I’d be strolling in clover
But I understand that it’s all over now
Our paradise is over



Wahine Girl Of Mine (Larry W. Jones 03/01/2005) (song#3647)

You ask me if I really love you
Wahine girl of mine
I can only tell you that it’s true
Wahine girl divine
There’s a million reasons why it’s so
Why I’m your guy
On this isle where tradewinds blow
I’ll try to answer why

All the tropic stars twinkle brighter
Wahine girl of mine
They make me want to hold you tighter
Wahine girl divine
That’s why I’m always happy when you’re near
And that’s the reason why
I’ll never let you go
You are my paradise
That’s why I love you so

I love the lovely things you say
And all the lovely things you do
Here on this lovely, lovely isle
I love to see that lovely smile on you
And the way you look at me
When I say my love is true
You’re a lovely girl divine
Wahine girl of mine



Wahines In Huahine (Larry W. Jones 03/02/2005) (song#3648)


All those wahines in Huahine
Huahine is the isle where I’d love to be
All those wahines in Huahine
That’s why I’m sailin’ back to Tahiti

There’s Kalea down in Parea
I’ll be seeing her real soon
And sweet Lokelani in Faretani
Likes to stroll beneath the moon
Moana over in Maroetana
Lives beside the turquois sea
And lovely Maeva in Takutea
Is over there calling me

All those wahines in Huahine
Huahine is the isle where I’d love to be
All those wahines in Huahine
That’s why I’m sailin’ back to Tahiti

I remember that valley stream
Swimming there was like a dream
And it brings to mind a sunny time
With an island honey I called mine
I have visions of my decisions
To be back there someday
And when I do, you know it’s true
That’s where I’m gonna stay

All those wahines in Huahine
Huahine is the isle where I’d love to be
All those wahines in Huahine
That’s why I’m sailin’ back to Tahiti

Some folks think I’m tellin’ lies
But Huahine is a paradise
That’s why I’m sailin’ back to Tahiti



Much Too Long (Larry W. Jones 03/03/2005) (song#3649)

Much too long, I’ve waited much too long
Just drifting in the stream
Waiting for someone on the island of my dream
To be that island angel
Who was meant for only me

Play a steel guitar tune, make it something blue
Of dreams beneath the moon that never came true
Sing me a lonely island song
Until someone new comes along

When that day comes, it will be so nice
When at last love comes my way
It will be paradise

Some day I’ll see in the sand
The footprints of her feet
And maybe then, just as love planned
My heart and hers will meet

We’ll kiss and then I’ll say
Ku’u ipo, I love you so
I’ve waited much too long for that day
Much too long, much too long, I know
I’ve waited much too long



A Year Ago Today (Larry W. Jones 03/08/2005) (song#3650)

It was a year ago today
That from your isle I sailed away
Many days have come and gone since then
But my love is just as strong
The love I bring for you again

The island flowers are on display
As when I kissed you a year ago today
The power of love made me return
For in my heart that love still burns
Just as it did a year ago today

Many days have come and gone
But true love will always linger on
Now there dawns a brand new island day
From island sand I’ll no more sail away

You’re back in my arms today, my love
As I recall the splendor of
The call of islands from far away
Just as it did a year ago today

Many days have come and gone
But true love will always linger on
Now there dawns a brand new island day
From island sand I’ll no more sail away

You’re back in my arms today, my love
As I recall the splendor of
The call of islands from far away
Just as it did a year ago today



Somewhere Around The Moon (Larry W. Jones 03/08/2005) (song#3651)

I never thought that you would leave me
Alone here on this island in the sea
What happened to the sound of love’s happy tune
Is it lost somewhere around the moon

When you gaze up to the stars at night
Do they still blaze anew with love’s delight
There might be found up there some June
A love that’s lost somewhere around the moon

We used to stroll beneath the stars
As we listened to those steel guitars
But that love has strayed afar too soon
It’s now lost somewhere around the moon

I still stroll the silver sands at night
Wishing my hands still held yours as tight
But I guess it’s still too soon
To possess again a love that’s lost
Somewhere around the moon

When you gaze up to the stars at night
Do they still blaze anew with love’s delight
There might be found up there some June
A love that’s lost somewhere around the moon

We used to stroll beneath the stars
As we listened to those steel guitars
But that love has strayed afar too soon
It’s now lost somewhere around the moon



Me And Sweet Leilani (Larry W. Jones 03/08/2005) (song#3652)

I used to love to hear my old Kapuna kane
Reminisce about his wedding day
That’s when my dear old Kapuna wahine
Gave him a kiss in her sweet way
When twilight fell here by the sea
I would climb upon Kapuna kane’s knee
And his old talk story he would tell to me

Now, as I see the silver in his hair
I still remember being there
When he would smile and tell the old talk story
Of his wedding day and all its glory
That only two so much in love could share

Just for me and sweet Leilani
On that day down by the sea
All the birds of paradise agreed
As they sang their song of island love
That rang in the blue of tropic skies above

They played for us sweet Maui chimes
As we pledged our vows for all of times
And our happiness is really simple
We’ve been ordinary island people, as they say
Ever since our lovely wedding day



Just Of You (Larry W. Jones 03/08/2005) (song#3653)

Just of you
Just of you
Every day, here where breezes play
All the things I say and do
Are wrapped up in my love of you
I swear to you it’s true
Just of you

When daylight dawns, I stretch and yawn
And before another minute’s gone, I think of you
Just of you
Just of you
I give thanks for a day that’s new
And for the way you love me too
I daydream the whole day through
Just of you

Just of you
Just of you
Every day, here where breezes play
All the things I say and do
Are wrapped up in my love of you
I swear to you it’s true
Just of you



Topic Of Conversation (Larry W. Jones 03/08/2005) (song#3654)

We stroll the sand together
Beneath the tropic moon above
Soon the topic of conversation
Isn’t about the balmy weather
But about how we’re falling in love

Soon the topic of conversation
Isn’t about the balmy weather
But about how we’re falling in love

Why miss an opportunity for tasting
The best of life while in our youth
This island community’s not wasting
Any time for love, and that’s the truth

Soon the topic of conversation
Isn’t about the balmy weather
But about how we’re falling in love

I think we’ll just stroll forever
On this island under tropic stars above
And forever the topic of conversation
Will be about how we’re falling in love



Somewhere Along The Line (Larry W. Jones 03/09/2005) (song#3655)

If only I could see you again
Somewhere along the line
It would be so good, and then
Maybe it would ease my mind
Until when I can hold you one more time
Til then I’ll pretend your love’s still mine
Somewhere along the line

I miss your smile where tradewinds blow
I’d trade the world to win your love, I know
Here on the isle I’m just spending time
Dreaming that someday you’ll again be mine
Somewhere along the line

Arms that I once felt would thrill me so
Now those arms are filled with someone else, I know
Faded is the dream that once was mine
Somewhere along the line

But oh, how I still love you so
I miss you where soft tradewinds blow
Maybe a new love someday I’ll find
Somewhere along the line



I’ll Always Remember (Larry W. Jones 03/09/2005) (song#3656)

I’ll always remember
The island love that we once knew
For like a burning ember
Are reminders you left, of you

I’ll always remember
Those balmy strolls in moonlight
Even in December
They were warm like summer nights

Kisses that once were only mine
I’ll always remember were divine
Though I’m so lonely all the time
I’ll always remember you were mine

I hope that you remember
Those island songs that we once sang
And that rainbow in september
As we went strolling through the rain

I’ll always remember
How sweet it was to have you near
For you, my broken heart beats year by year
To remind me to remember
To remind me to remember
Yes, I’ll always remember this souvenir



Someone Where Tradewinds Blow (Larry W. Jones 03/09/2005) (song#3657)

I have a photo in my wallet
Why it’s still there I don’t really know
But when someone asks me, who’s the starlet
I just say, someone where tradewinds blow

Just a cute wahine from Hawaii blue
I met while in pursuit of dreams come true
That you broke my heart in two, they don’t have to know
I just say, someone where tradewinds blow

Just a polynesian girl I strolled the sand with
Just a tiki flame that lost its glow
Where breakers curl, her love was just a myth
I just say, someone where tradewinds blow

Just a cute wahine from Hawaii blue
I met while in pursuit of dreams come true
That you broke my heart in two, they don’t have to know
I just say, someone where tradewinds blow
I just say, someone where tradewinds blow



Only You Only Me (Larry W. Jones 03/09/2005) (song#3658)

Only you, only me
On a cozy island in the sea
A place for two, Hawaii blue
Only us, only we
You and I are overdue
A dream come true

After all
What is an island warm for
Islands call
Where lovers’ charms are

Only you, only me
On a cozy island in the sea
You’ll wear a rose in your hair
In the tropic air

(Only you, only me)
On a cozy island in the sea
A place for two, Hawaii blue
(Only us, only we)
You and I are overdue
A dream come true

After all
What is an island warm for
Islands call
Where lovers’ charms are

Only you (Only you, only me)
Only me (Only us, only we)
On a cozy island in the sea
A place for two, Hawaii blue
You and I are overdue
A dream come true



For Maui (Larry W. Jones 03/09/2005) (song#3659)

There’s an isle in Hawaii that’s dear to my heart
The scene there is beyond compare
From that Valley Isle, it was so hard to part
From the west Maui mountains
With its perfumed air

Now I’m a sailor, alone o’er wide oceans I sail
And those streams and west Maui mountains I no longer see
But still, the flowers that bloom in the valleys, I hail
For Maui, forever with you, my heart will be

There ne’er was an island where the sky was so blue
Nor any place else with tradewinds so fair
O’er your gentle waves I have steered my canoe
By the shores of Lahaina
Island kings once throned there

I remember wahines and kanes who strolled there
They danced at the luau on a warm summer’s night
To koa guitar’s glad tunes ringing out in the air
Oh, that Maui isle scene fills my heart with delight

And I long for dear Maui, Valley Isle I love best
Where palm trees, pandanus, and tuberose bloomed for me
It’s an island of peace where one day I’ll go to rest
On the shores of Lahaina, my home in old Maui



Roselani (Larry W. Jones 03/10/2005) (song#3660)

Way over in an old Hawaiian town
A sweet island flower is waiting for me
There’s never a frown when she’s around
But she’s somewhere o’re the boundless sea
Oh, Roselani

Won’t you think of someone who’s thinking tonight of you
Someone who’s yearning for one sweet sight of you
My own sweet Hawaiian roselani, rose
My own sweet Hawaiian rose

Oh, my heavenly Hawaiian Rose
The way my heart beats, no one knows
But the tradewinds o’re the deep blue sea
Still blows true love from you to me

Every time I taste the sweetest wine
It’s like your lips are placed on mine
It seems you’re in this heart of me
Like a dream, you’re still part of me
My own sweet Hawaiian roselani, rose
My own sweet Hawaiian rose



Ana From Kalapana (Larry W. Jones 03/10/2005) (song#3661)

In sunny Kalapana, mid the fields of sugar cane
Lives a charming dusky island maid
In the evening when the moon shines
From its lofty velvet night
It’s then I go to meet her
In that Kalapana moonlight shade

Her eyes are warm as tiki torches
And I love to see them aglow
We sit and swing on her front porch
But of our future, I don’t know

I haven’t asked for her hand yet
For I fear it may be asked in vain
But some day I will go and let
Her hear me sing this sweet refrain

Oh, my dusky Ana from Kalapana
Will you be my charming island queen
For when the tropic stars are peeping
And when it is that I am sleeping
It’s always of you I dream

I love you, oh, so dearly
Please tell to me sincerely
That your heart will be mine alone
There are other island girls, it’s true
But Ana, I want only you
So, promise me that you’ll be my primadonna
My dusky Ana from Kalapana



Polynesian Lady (Larry W. Jones 03/10/2005) (song#3662)

Polynesian Lady I adore you
On the shore it was hard to ignore you
My heart is on fire for you
Polynesian Lady of Hawaii blue

Polynesian Lady I’m inviting
Why should I deny what’s so exciting
Your heart and mine should be uniting
Polynesian Lady, kipona Aloha

Sunset in Waikiki, warm and golden
Tropic moon makes charms embolden
Ringing ukuleles being played
Underneath the polynesian stars
Paniolos singing island serenades
To the strings of steel guitars

Polynesian Lady I adore you
On the shore it was hard to ignore you
My heart is on fire for you
Polynesian Lady of Hawaii blue

Polynesian Lady I’m inviting
Why should I deny what’s so exciting
Your heart and mine should be uniting
Polynesian Lady, kipona Aloha



Yesterday (Larry W. Jones 03/10/2005) (song#3663)


Yesterday, I felt your fingertips
Yesterday, I lingered on your lips
I fell in love yesterday

Yesterday, you made my heart beat fast
Yesterday, has departed to the past
Why couldn’t love stay, yesterday

Today, I’m on an island all alone
All but my dreams of you have gone
Why has true love been postponed, why delayed

Yesterday, why did we say Aloha ‘oe goodbye
My heart will never know the reason why
Why couldn’t love stay, yesterday

Yesterday, you made my heart beat fast
Yesterday, has departed to the past

Today, I’m on an island all alone
All but my dreams of you have gone
Why has true love been postponed, why delayed

Yesterday, why did we say Aloha ‘oe goodbye
My heart will never know the reason why
Why couldn’t love stay, yesterday



Lana In The Twilight (Larry W. Jones 03/10/2005) (song#3664)

Sometimes I get this feeling
Of something I should have remembered
Something I’m not sure happened
And yet it comes stealing once in a while
That something must have been someone
That I just saw but never met on the isle

Lana is the girl in the twilight
Footsteps that I see in the sand
Laughter from a heart that’s cheery bright
That I hear but don’t quite understand

And I see Lana through the city bus window pane
Polynesian eyes that I know I’ve seen
I wonder if I’ll ever kiss her pretty face again
For Lana in the twilight is a dream

Lana is the girl in the twilight
Footsteps that I see in the sand
Laughter from a heart that’s cheery bright
That I hear but don’t quite understand

I wonder if I’ll ever kiss her pretty face again
For Lana in the twilight is a dream



Farewell To Island Sand (Larry W. Jones 03/11/2005) (song#3665)

I stood and leaned against the rail
And every gentle wave I counted
Aloha ‘oe, farewell to island sand
Aloha ‘oe, farewell to island sand

Oh, how fast the clipper ship did sail
As I passed the home of one enchanted
Curtains in the windows waving
Curtains in the windows waving

I fixed my eyes but saw no sign
Of her whose lips are sweetest wine
For my heart there was no saving
For my heart there was no saving

I felt the tears well in my eyes
It appeared that I’d lost paradise
With no hope of glad tomorrow
My poor heart will surely break
My poor heart will surely break
From the weight of love and sorrow



Bright Star So Fair (Larry W. Jones 03/11/2005) (song#3666)

There is beauty on land, at sea and above
Where mingles the stars with southern seas love
Island flowers there are charming and sweet
Where whispering voices of tradewinds all meet

Southern stars unite above in the sky
To twinkle their duty, beaming from high
Sparkling with beauty in my lover’s eyes
Soft and sweet in south seas paradise
Soft and sweet in south seas paradise

All stars in the sky tremble their rays
Wishing to kiss flowers blooming at day
Fleecy white clouds that slowly float by
Wish they were pillows for my love and I

Flowers would wither if not for the dew
Such would be my heart if not for you
Your love for me is like my very air
My tropical southern bright star so fair



Maui Honeymoon (Larry W. Jones 03/15/2005) (song#3667)

Every time I hear those Maui chimes
I think of all those happy island times
Honey, let’s zing to, happiness they’ll bring you
Way down in old Lahaina town

Sweetheart, let’s go where love is king
We’ll go shopping for a diamond ring
Island hopping where the palm trees sway
That’s where our wedding vows we’ll say

Sweet tuberoses will be in bloom
There the tropic air will be perfumed
Birds of paradise are singing
True love’s message they are bringing

Aloha sweetheart, our love is strong
My life with you will be an island song
In your white wedding dress
You’ll be looking your very best
You and I’ll be turning brown real soon
Down in old Lahaina town
When we’re on our Maui honeymoon



Aloha For You And Me (Larry W. Jones 03/15/2005) (song#3668)

I know a place of sun and sand
In a far away and distant land
The pace of life is nice and slow
It’s paradise where breezes blow

Fragrant flowers, hula trees
Happy laughter on the breeze
Lovers strolling by the shore
Who could ever ask for more

Listen as the ocean echoes like a big seashell
Look upon the motion of the waves where islands dwell
Slowly is the movement of the music of the sea
Lowly whispered on the tradewinds, Aloha for you and me

I can hear the sound of a shorebird’s gentle cry
More birds are taking wing in the tropic sky
They’re just at home on the sand or o’re the foam
I’ll be your island man, and never more I’ll roam

Fragrant flowers, hula trees
Happy laughter on the breeze
Lovers strolling by the shore
Who could ever ask for more

Listen as the ocean echoes like a big seashell
Look upon the motion of the waves where islands dwell
Slowly is the movement of the music of the sea
Lowly whispered on the tradewinds, Aloha for you and me



Little Lost Texas Tumbleweed (Larry W. Jones 03/15/2005) (song#3669)

I’m prayin’ for sunshine in Hawaii
So they can make more pineapple wine
And I’m sittin’ in the airport in California
With a broken heart that’s been maligned

I’ve asked the agent for a one way ticket
That will take me far across the western sea
And if anybody asks me why I’m doin’ it
I’ll say I’m a little lost Texas tumbleweed

I arrived here yesterday from San Antone
Cause my darlin’ left me on a midnight plane
So, I thought I’d cross the sea to a tropic zone
Maybe a broken heart in Hawaii won’t feel the same

I’ve asked the agent for a one way ticket
That will take me far across the western sea
And if anybody asks me why I’m doin’ it
I’ll say I’m a little lost Texas tumbleweed
I’ll say I’m a little lost Texas tumbleweed



Dreams Of Pleasure (Larry W. Jones 03/16/2005) (song#3670)


Many lonely tears once filled my heart
The years I forgot to measure
But now I’ve found a treasured art
I’m living in dreams of pleasure

Before you came, everything was wrong
My daily bread was sorrow
But now I’m prone to sing a love song
And I don’t dread tomorrow

Until now, the moon and stars were darkened
Love for me, well to me it never harkened
But when I found you, love was without measure
I’m living in dreams of pleasure

Everything has changed since we’ve been one
My heart is relieved of sorrow’s pressure
Tomorrow we’ll live on an island in the sun
I’m living in dreams of pleasure

Everything has changed since we’ve been one
My heart is relieved of sorrow’s pressure
Tomorrow we’ll live on an island in the sun
I’m living in dreams of pleasure



On That Green Green Island (Larry W. Jones 03/16/2005) (song#3671)


Day and night they live a dream
On their island in the sea
On that green green island
On that green green island

Down at the landing, it’s a scene
Tourists disembark from their cruising
On that green green island
On that green green island

And the Koolau mountains are looking fine
Something to do with their design
On that green green island
On that green green island

I like to feel the sunshine on my back
Watch the little sailboats steer and tack
I want to heal my heart from this attack of loneliness

That island girl used to be in love with me
Loveliest pearl that I’ve ever seen
On that green green island
On that green green island

Oh, I can’t remember why I sailed away
I just know I’ve gotta see her again someday
On that green green island
On that green green island

I like to feel the sunshine on my back
Watch the little sailboats steer and tack
I want to heal my heart from this attack of loneliness
On that green green island
On that green green island



Liliana (Larry W. Jones 03/16/2005) (song#3672)

Liliana, skies are blue
When you smiled at me
All the grey clouds flew
Liliana, I need your company too
Liliana, I’m in love with you

See the polynesian moon shining down
Shining on old Lahaina town
Liliana, island girl divine
Hear the breeze whisper Maui chimes
Liliana, Liliana, Maui girl of mine

When you smiled at me
All the grey clouds flew
Liliana, I need your company too

See the polynesian moon shining down
Shining on old Lahaina town
Liliana, island girl divine
Hear the breeze whisper Maui chimes
Liliana, Liliana, Maui girl of mine
Liliana



Tropical Island Blues (Larry W. Jones 03/17/2005) (song#3673)

I’ve been dreaming half my life away
The other half is in a tropical day
Over where golden moonbeams glow
As they have in olden times ago

Oh, tropical island
Of you I’m always singing
Oh, tropical island
Because of you, I’m blue
I seem to hear someone’s voice ringing
Dreams bringing memories of love I knew

Her charms I’ve been missing
Her hugs and all her kissing
She said that she’d be true
And I said I would too
I’ve got these tropical island blues

Some day I’ll return to paradise
Under blue blue tropical skies
Again she’ll wear my ginger lei
And then I won’t have to say

Oh, tropical island
Of you I’m always singing
Oh, tropical island
Because of you, I’m blue
I seem to hear someone’s voice ringing
Dreams bringing memories of love I knew

Her charms I’ve been missing
Her hugs and all her kissing
She said that she’d be true
And I said I would too
I’ve got these tropical island blues



Far Side Of A Rainbow (Larry W. Jones 03/17/2005) (song#3674)

On the far side of a rainbow
Far out across the sea
There’s a Hawaiian island they call Kaua’i

When Kaua’i calls to you
For Aloha to share
Then you must wander there
On the far side of a rainbow
On the isle of Kaua’i

There the tradewind breeze
Flows through hula swaying trees
It’s a dream to be on the beach at Kaua’i

On the far side of a rainbow
Far out across the sea
There’s a Hawaiian island they call Kaua’i

When Kaua’i calls to you
For Aloha to share
Then you must wander there
On the far side of a rainbow
On the isle of Kaua’i



Warm Ocean (Larry W. Jones 03/17/2005) (song#3675)

Where the warm ocean flows
And the tradewind blows by my island
Where the tall palm tree grows
It grows along my shore
Where the rainbows paint the sky
And the birds are birds of paradise
Where the warm ocean flows
And the tradewind blows by my island

There’s a moonlight beam that calls
Every night here on my island
There’s a lonesome tear that falls
As I stroll along my shore
But when the tropic sun is in the sky
I don’t have time to weep and cry
Where the warm ocean flows
And the tradewind blows by my island

I wish that you could see
All the fish swimming in the bay
I wish that someone else were me
When the island dawn meets the day
I look for a welcome shade
By the waterfall cascade
Where the warm ocean flows
And the tradewind blows by my island

When this island was first formed
Paradise was then bestowed
But a woman’s love that was warm
One day turned out to be so cold
Everything I own I would give to you
If you could make my dream come true
Where the warm ocean flows
And the tradewind blows by my island



Watch The Horizon (Larry W. Jones 03/17/2005) (song#3676)

On the day I breathed my first air
My dear mother said never despair
For your tomorrow will turn out alright
If you just follow a dream that is bright
It was a rhyme that I kept in my heart
For the time when I had to part

Watch, watch, watch the horizon
Search where it goes far over the sea
Watch, watch, watch the horizon
Search for a lady whose in search of a dream
Search for a lady, search for a lady
Search for a lady whose in search of a dream

What a sumptuous rhyme to give to a boy
I had to find the last verse of that song
For better or worse, I’d search for that joy
O’er that far horizon where my dream belonged

So, I talked to my heart and I sailed the world free
North, south and east where ‘ere my heart led me
Then toward the west to isles of the sea
I searched the horizon for my paradise
And finally found it in my own true love’s eyes



True Love Is The Only Thing (Larry W. Jones 03/17/2005) (song#3677)

True love is the only thing
That’s not only for a king and queen
Love is bold and filled with glory
In every old island talk story

True love is never a lonely thing
Two birds of paradise together sing
It’s kept in every heart as inventory
In every old island talk story

True love is like a tiki fire
It draws one closer than a friend
True love is more than just desire
If it’s from your heart that you extend

True love is never a lonely thing
Two birds of paradise together sing
It’s kept in every heart as inventory
In every old island talk story

True love is the only thing
Forever decent, not just a recent thing
In every old island talk story
Like this lovely morning glory too
True love today I bring to you



Written On My Heart (Larry W. Jones 03/18/2005) (song#3678)

Love letters written on my heart
I send to you, though we’re apart
I’m so alone here at night
With only these lonely letters that I write

I remember you there on the isle
And I still care, but I can’t seem to smile
Oh, how I wish that I could impart
Love letters written on my heart

These love letters that I write to you
Make things better, I swear it’s true
It’s the only way each day can start
With love letters written on my heart

I remember you there on the isle
And I still care, but I can’t seem to smile
Oh, how I wish that I could impart
Love letters written on my heart

Oh, how I wish that I could impart
Love letters written on my heart



Dreamy Maui Moon (Larry W. Jones 03/18/2005) (song#3679)

I stroll along all alone in Maui sand
Wishing you were here, longing for you, dear
And when twilight falls in this fair land
Thoughts of you are near while tropic stars appear
Here I’ll stay until the day when the sun shines through
And then my dreams of you will come true

Dreamy Maui moon, dreamy Maui moon
Shining on this island shore
Every night I see you, and I know that you agree, too
That I need you, dreamy Maui moon, more and more

You know that I’m so lonely out here tonight
And you’re the only one who gives me light
Please tell me that my love is coming soon
Dear old dreamy Maui moon

I know she can hear the islands calling from afar
She can smell the sugar cane
Hear birds of paradise refrains
Let your lovelight guide her on to this tropic zone
So we can meet again in lover’s lane
Maybe she’ll come in June, under a dreamy Maui moon

Dreamy Maui moon, dreamy Maui moon
Shining on this island shore
Every night I see you, and I know that you agree, too
That I need you, dreamy Maui moon, more and more

You know that I’m so lonely out here tonight
And you’re the only one who gives me light
Please tell me that my love is coming soon
Dear old dreamy Maui moon



Aloha Only To You Lani (Larry W. Jones 03/18/2005) (song#3680)

Sweet lehua was scenting the air Lani
Revealing their charms on the breeze
When first I said Aloha only to you Lani
And you said Aloha to me

Pandanus grew green in Manoa valley Lani
The akialoa mele was sung from the trees
When first I said Aloha only to you Lani
And you said Aloha to me

A golden moon shone on the shore Lani
And danced with the waves on the seas
When first I said Aloha only to you Lani
And you said Aloha to me

Stars in the sky twinkled their eyes Lani
For happiness in our paradise to be
When first I said Aloha only to you Lani
And you said Aloha to me

But our future together was never to be Lani
Our hopes only turned out to be dreams
When first I said Aloha only to you Lani
And you said Aloha to me



Fantasy Island (Larry W. Jones 03/18/2005) (song#3681)

Fantasy Island is somewhere out across the blue
Fantasy Island is over there waiting for you

That beautiful island is not just for pretend
Fantasy Island isn’t hard to comprehend

Tropical breezes blow over that lovely shore
Whispering, please won’t you kiss me once more

That beautiful island is not just for pretend
Fantasy Island isn’t hard to comprehend

Tropical breezes blow over that lovely shore
Whispering, please won’t you kiss me once more

Fantasy Island, waiting for me and for you
Fantasy Island, somewhere out across the blue



Hawaiian Serenade (Larry W. Jones 03/18/2005) (song#3682)

I remember that lovely island refrain
And here in my heart I sing it again
Our love song was like a beautiful pearl from the bay
Ku’u ipo, sweetheart, do you remember that day

That holiday in Hawaii was the beginning of it
And ever since, there’s been no ending of it
The moonlight glow there on the shore
When tradewinds whispered your name
The breeze in palm trees said you, I adore
Our love was the same as a warm tiki flame

Your kiss was as soft as a golden moonbeam
Such bliss is still part of our unfolding dream
Such is the love that one island gave
To the music of romance when we took a chance
To dance our Hawaiian serenade

Your kiss was as soft as a golden moonbeam
Such bliss is still part of our unfolding dream
Such is the love that one island gave
To the music of romance when we took a chance
To dance our Hawaiian serenade



Pahinui (Larry W. Jones 03/18/2005) (song#3683)

Well, he’s certainly no stranger there
Pahinui is his name
Strollin’ the sand in the tradewind air
A guitar’s his companion
Slack key music is his game

Smooth as the koa wood trees grow
Gabby Pahinui is his name
Sweet kiho’alu music he makes flow
Blowin’ on the tradewinds
Pahinui is a name of fame

Maui isle, ring your chimes
He played ’em sweet when in his prime
His island music made us smile
From the big island to Niihau
Gabby Pahinui showed ’em how
Pahinui is a legend on the isle

Maui isle, ring your chimes
He played ’em sweet when in his prime
His island music made us smile
From the big island to Niihau
Gabby Pahinui showed ’em how
Pahinui is a legend on the isle



In That Old Hawaiian Paradise (Larry W. Jones 03/25/2005) (song#3684)

Well, I’ll soon be goin’
Where tradewinds are blowin’
And the livin’s really nice
Hear what I’m sayin’
There I’ll be stayin’
In that old Hawaiian paradise

I’m takin’ a new trip
On an old sailin’ ship
Over toward the bluest skies
Palm trees are swayin’
Ukuleles are playin’
In that old Hawaiian paradise

I’ll be singin’ a new song
And it won’t be too long
Til I’ll be one of those island guys
I’ll go to the luau
Let the hula girls show me how
In that old Hawaiian paradise

I remember that place by the sea
And her face that I saw in Waikiki
I’ll soon be returnin’ there to stay
In that little cottage by the bay

Well, I’ll soon be goin’
Where tradewinds are blowin’
And the livin’s really nice
Hear what I’m sayin’
There I’ll be stayin’
In that old Hawaiian paradise

Hear what I’m sayin’
There I’ll be stayin’
In that old Hawaiian paradise



Me And My Moana (Larry W. Jones 03/25/2005) (song#3685)

Me and my Moana
My Moana and Me
We always stroll together
Hand in hand here by the sea

Me and my Moana
We’ve been this way from the start
She knows that I love her
When I tell her from my heart

And if I’m ever feeling blue
My Moana knows just what to do
True love is wonderful and grand
I know my Moana understands

If my mind is ever in distress
Even where the tradewind blows
Then I find that I am blessed
Because of love Moana shows

Me and my Moana
My Moana and Me
We always stroll together
Hand in hand here by the sea

Me and my Moana
We’ve been this way from the start
She knows that I love her
When I tell her from my heart



Dream Of Island Sand (Larry W. Jones 03/25/2005) (song#3686)

My dreams are of my island childhood
And the places where I used to play
I used to climb the trees of ironwood
That grew so tall down by the bay
There’s something to my island dreaming
That returns my mind to yesterday
Come with me and learn the meaning
Of Aloha love we call the island way

Yes, come with me back through the curtain
Where we’ll stroll on island sand so bright
When you’re there you’ll know for certain
That Aloha is a love that’s only right
Warm island sand was made for lovers
And songs you’ll hear are sweet and kind
On the island is where you’ll discover
A kind of joy that no one else can find

Come dream with me tonight of island sand
Steal away from all the world’s demands
You’ll find out just how to find some joy
Simple things like dancing at the luau, eatin’ poi
Your heart will never break when you’re out there
All it takes is someone with a love to share
The music there is only love’s command
Come dream with me tonight of island sand



Meet Me Down At Waikiki (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2005) (song#3687)

Meet me down at Waikiki
When the working day is through
I have a little question you can answer me
And it has to do with me and you

I want to tell you lots of little things
About the way the bees and birdies sing
And if you’ll stroll along and hold my hand
I’ll tell you all the bigger things I’ve planned

So, meet me down at Waikiki
When the tiki lights are low
I hope you’ll say Aloha, I agree
When I tell you that I love you so

It would be a treat just to talk to you
We can meet on Kalakaua Avenue
The yellow moon will be there shining bright
So, meet me down at Waikiki tonight

I want to tell you lots of little things
About the way the bees and birdies sing
And if you’ll stroll along and hold my hand
I’ll tell you all the bigger things I’ve planned

So, meet me down at Waikiki
When the tiki lights are low
I hope you’ll say Aloha, I agree
When I tell you that I love you so



Come Stroll With Me In Dreamland (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2005) (song#3688)

Come stroll with me in dreamland
Beneath a polynesian moon
Come stroll with me in dreamland
Where fragrant tuberoses bloom

Let your polynesian eyes be gleaming
With Aloha love that’s true
The tropic moon will be there beaming
Just for me and you

We’ll stroll along the shore and listen
To steel guitars and ukuleles too
As they play while moonlight glistens
On the waters of the ocean blue

Come stroll with me in dreamland
Beneath a polynesian moon
Come stroll with me in dreamland
Where fragrant tuberoses bloom

Let your polynesian eyes be gleaming
With Aloha love that’s true
The tropic moon will be there beaming
Just for me and you



Melancholy Moon (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2005) (song#3689)

Melancholy moon that forever follows me
Always finds me in its tropic light
Melancholy moon that wants to swallow me
I must be a lonely lonely sight
Stranded on this island night in June
By a melancholy moon

I must be in the wrong location
Happiness is where the tradewinds blow
But for me there’s no consolation
As I know the tears begin to show
The only light I see is dark and gloom
And this feeling’s caused, I know
By a melancholy moon

In the middle of the night
I search for her lovely face
Someday I hope I might
Again feel her embrace

Melancholy moon, how did you find me
Was I so alone strolling by the sea
Loose these chains of love that bind me
Melancholy moon, please set me free

In the middle of the night
I search for her lovely face
Someday I hope I might
Again feel her embrace

Melancholy moon, how did you find me
Was I so alone strolling by the sea
Loose these chains of love that bind me
Melancholy moon, please set me free

Oh, melancholy moon, please set me free



Hawaii Lullaby (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2005) (song#3690)

Go to sleep, keiki baby
Here comes twilight and the moon
Rest your head upon my breast
It’s time to swoon
The tropic night’s a-callin’
The shadows are a-fallin’
And the tradewinds sigh a melody of paradise

Way over in Hawaii
Is where I heard that melody
I was just a little keiki child
Playing on my Mama’s knee

The island folks were strummin’
Their ukuleles with their hummin’
Sweet and low where tradewinds blow

Strum, strum, strum and sing
I can hear the ukuleles ring again
Strum, strum, strum and bring
Me back to my Mama’s knee again

Way over in Hawaii
Is where I heard that melody
I was just a little keiki child
Playing on my Mama’s knee

The island folks were strummin’
Their ukuleles with their hummin’
Sweet and low where tradewinds blow
Way over in Hawaii



Moonlight Fits You To A Tee (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2005) (song#3691)

Moonlight fits you to a tee
It falls so nicely on your hair
And it precisely pleases me
In this moonlight tropic air

Moonlight fits you to a tee
I’m trying to be polite
And if you’re thinking of kissing me
You’re really in sync with me tonight

I see you’re dressed for taking a stroll
Tradewinds are making a lovely song
Have I expressed from my heart and soul
That I’d love to stroll with you my whole life long

And when I say Aloha, I love you
It’s the way love was meant to be
And it’s not just the moonlight view
Though moonlight fits you to a tee

I see you’re dressed for taking a stroll
Tradewinds are making a lovely song
Have I expressed from my heart and soul
That I’d love to stroll with you my whole life long

And when I say Aloha, I love you
It’s the way love was meant to be
And it’s not just the moonlight view
Though moonlight fits you to a tee



Leeward And Windward Side (Larry W. Jones 03/27/2005) (song#3692)

There lived an island girl
There lived an island boy
If they had ever met where breakers curl
They would have found a treasure like a pearl
But the girl lived on the leeward side of the island
And he lived on the windward side of the isle

They never saw each other while strolling around
And what happiness might be was never found
For the girl lived on the leeward side of the island
And he lived on the windward side of the isle

An island tuberose just never grows
Without the mist from the tropic dew
And every wahine and kane knows
A dream consists of two to come true

I know that someone was meant for me
But I’ve never found someone to beguile
For you’re on the leeward side of the island
And I’m on the windward side of the isle

An island tuberose just never grows
Without the mist from the tropic dew
And every wahine and kane knows
A dream consists of two to come true

I know that someone was meant for me
But I’ve never found someone to beguile
For you’re on the leeward side of the island
And I’m on the windward side of the isle



More Than Just Emotion (Larry W. Jones 03/28/2005) (song#3693)

I look out my window at the yellow moon
Turn on a record with a mellow tune
I think of somewhere that’s tropical themed
Close my eyes and dream away

It’s more than just emotion
When I hear that island tune they used to play
It seems to flow in slow motion
As I see sweet Leilani strolling away
I see my sweet Leilani strolling away

Days and years have come and gone
Other lovely faces have passed me by
Through it all, somehow I carry on
Remembering places that was paradise

It’s more than just emotion
When I hear that island tune they used to play
It seems to flow in slow motion
As I see sweet Leilani strolling away
I see my sweet Leilani strolling away

When I’m weary and feeling low
I find the music that fits my day
I dream of where soft breezes blow
And watch sweet Leilani stroll away
I watch as my sweet Leilani strolls away

It’s more than just emotion
When I hear that island tune they used to play
It seems to flow in slow motion
As I see sweet Leilani strolling away
I see my sweet Leilani strolling away



Lazy Old Lahaina Town (Larry W. Jones 03/28/2005) (song#3694)

Life is just a daisy in Lahaina town
Ship captains lower their sails all down
Life is lazy without a frown
In lazy old Lahaina town

I get up early to see the rising of the sun
A little unsteady but the mornin’s young
Then I get ready to stroll around
In lazy old Lahaina town

Lazy old Lahaina town
No other place is quite the same
Don’t need money for dreams to come around
A lazy day is why I came

I’ll find me a palm tree for a shade
Play this old ukulele that I made
Listen to the winds of trade
In lazy old Lahaina town

Honey, I wish I could buy you everything
Like that Tahitian black pearl ring
Or that crazy paradise bird that sings
In lazy old Lahaina town

But the only thing I can extend
Just as long as you’re around
Are all the days that we can spend
In lazy old Lahaina town



Aloha Sweetheart (Larry W. Jones 03/28/2005) (song#3695)

Aloha sweetheart, it’s good to hear your voice again
I’m at the boarding dock getting ready to depart
How’s everybody doing, and is there sun or rain
Darlin’, I want to say I love you from my heart

Well, I’ve been starin’ at the skies
And I know I wasn’t very smart
To leave you over there in paradise
Darlin’, I love you from my heart

There’s been times that I would swear
That I’d return soon to you some day
But there was something in the air
And sailing ships that got in the way

Tomorrow there’ll be cold rain in old Frisco
But I’ll be sailing westward on the chart
I’m heading where warm tradewinds blow
Hoping that you still love me from your heart

Aloha sweetheart
I’m at the boarding dock getting ready to depart
Aloha sweetheart
Darlin’, I love you from my heart



Kukui Tree For IZ (Larry W. Jones 03/28/2005) (song#3696)

Israel Kamakawiwo’ole
Only wanted music to be his legacy
It wasn’t only Hawaiian that he understood
His music was soft yet strong as a Kukui wood tree

We will plant for you a Kukui tree
For your music stood for all to see
It was your Hawaiian legacy
It was your Hawaiian legacy

Israel Kamakawiwo’ole
Was a true Hawaiian from the heart
Israel Kamakawiwo’ole
Left us his music when he had to part

We will plant for you a Kukui tree
For your music stood for all to see
It was your Hawaiian legacy
It was your Hawaiian legacy

IZ has left his island in the stream
But he left his music here for you and me
We’re not bereft of your Hawaiian dream
For you we’ll plant a Kukui tree

We will plant for you a Kukui tree
For your music stood for all to see
It was your Hawaiian legacy
It was your Hawaiian legacy

The limbs will grow to touch the sky
Hawaiians will remember your goodbye
And the day it’s planted in the ground
Your Aloha kind of love will stay around

We will plant for you a Kukui tree
For your music stood for all to see
It was your Hawaiian legacy
It was your Hawaiian legacy



I Remember Again (Larry W. Jones 03/29/2005) (song#3697)

When I hear that island music
Your kind of island music
I remember again, dear, of you

Whe I smell sweet tuberoses
Your white island tuberoses
I remember again, dear, of you

But you know, if I never hear again that island music
And if I never smell again sweet island tuberoses
No dreams of dear old hawaii blue
I would still remember you
You were my dream come true
I remember again, dear, of you

But you know, if I never hear again that island music
And if I never smell again sweet island tuberoses
No dreams of dear old hawaii blue
I would still remember you
You were my dream come true
I remember again, dear, of you



My Aloha Love For You (Larry W. Jones 03/29/2005) (song#3698)

My Aloha love for you
Is as true blue as the the deep blue sea
Stronger than a mighty king, you see
My Aloha love for you

The beating of my heart is for you alone
In this tropic zone
Since the first time my heart has known
My Aloha love for you

There’ll be no other hula hips
No other ruby lips
That could ever please me as you do
The way I feel for you

My Aloha love for you
Will be the same eternally
I want to change your name, don’t you see
Cause my love is true
My Aloha Love for you

There’ll be no other hula hips
No other ruby lips
That could ever please me as you do
The way I feel for you

My Aloha love for you
Will be the same eternally
I want to change your name, don’t you see
Cause my love is true
My Aloha Love for you



My Kalena (Larry W. Jones 03/29/2005) (song#3699)

Aloha ‘oe, my Kalena
Girl of the southern seas
We dreamed of paradise
A dream that was so nice
But now we’re separated
By the widest of blue seas

Aloha was my love for you only
Oh, why must we be apart
You know that I’m so lonely
Here alone with a broken heart

Once on warm golden sands
You and I would hold warm hands
That’s why I cry, my Kalena, it’s true
I’ll cry til I return to you

Aloha was my love for you only
Oh, why must we be apart
You know that I’m so lonely
Here alone with a broken heart

Once on warm golden sands
You and I would hold warm hands
That’s why I cry, my Kalena, it’s true
I’ll cry til I return to you



Thirty Seven Hundred (Larry W. Jones 03/29/2005) (song#3700)

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

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

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

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



Lady On The Shady Isle (Larry W. Jones 03/31/2005) (song#3701)

Sailor Bob McCan, was a fearless sailor man
His ship ran aground so vile, on a far off tropic isle
He led a vagabond life, instead of a life of strife
Sailor Bob was fond of a sailor’s life

Robert’s cap’n said, Bob, you can fill my shoes
Another ship is on the way, from here to Mandalay
Bob said to the cap’n, to fill your shoes, I refuse
You can dock my pay, but here I’ll stay awhile

I’ve got a lady here on the shady isle
Tradewinds are calling her to me, you see
Underneath a shady tall palm tree
By the way, she beats the other ladies by a mile
Her hula sway is a little shady when she smiles
I’m gonna build that lady a shady shack on the shady isle
Cause now that I’m here, I’ll make a career of this island life
And that lady on the shady isle will be my wife
I’ve seen many a mess, lots of stress on the deep blue sea
But now I must confess, I’ve never been blessed
Like the blessedness she brought to me
She made me smile with her island style
My island lady here on the shady isle



My Home Town (Larry W. Jones 03/31/2005) (song#3702)

I took a trip back to my home town
And as the ship docked at old Lahaina town
I breathed again that perfumed air
Island music was playing everywhere
Saying to my heart from up above
That old Lahaina town was my first love

Those Maui chimes were ringing
Birds of paradise were singing
Sweet as sugar cane
I got a funny feeling
That the sunny skies were stealing
My heart again

Steel guitar music played on and on
Tropical stars stayed until the dawn
Of all the world that I’ve been around
Nothing can begin to compare with
My home town, old Lahaina town

Those Maui chimes were ringing
Birds of paradise were singing
Sweet as sugar cane
I got a funny feeling
That the sunny skies were stealing
My heart again

Steel guitar music played on and on
Tropical stars stayed until the dawn
Of all the world that I’ve been around
Nothing can begin to compare with
My home town, old Lahaina town



Out On The Ocean (Larry W. Jones 03/31/2005) (song#3703)

Yo-ho, I have sailed o’er the ocean
Flowing with the waves of the sea
Dashing through the spray, searching for a bay
Out on the ocean is the life for me

I know I’ll always be a sailor
Though wild winds blow the angry foam
As birds of the sea, gaily I’ll be free
Oh, how my heart was born to roam

I love to hear the breakers roar
As they crash upon the shore
Sing you sailor lads, yo-ho, yo-ho
On a ship I’ll make my home
As o’er the waves and wake I roam
Hurrah for the life out on the ocean

Now, listen to the sound of the pelican
And see how he rides on the billow
With his great wing span
He sails the seas like a sailor man
And at night the wave is his pillow

Another tropic sun sets in splendor
Its beams have met the horizon west
A sailor’s life to me is a dream meant to be
Out on the ocean that I love the best

I love to hear the breakers roar
As they crash upon the shore
Sing you sailor lads, yo-ho, yo-ho
On a ship I’ll make my home
As o’er the waves and wake I roam
Hurrah for the life out on the ocean



Oh My Lovely Maui Rose (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2005) (song#3704)


Oh, my lovely Maui rose
Sweetest girl where tradewind flows
You’re the queen of island roses
The prettiest seen, heaven knows
You bring sunshine to the isle
And rainbows, I suppose
I will always love you with Aloha
Oh, my lovely Maui rose

The tropic sun shines like polished brass
Over the lovely hills of Maui fair
And I stroll hand in hand with my sweet island lass
As pretty as the flower in her hair
Her polynesian eyes I cannot shun
My true love for her, she knows
Our life of island love has just begun
Oh, my lovely Maui rose

As we stroll down by the golden shore
I watch the moonbeams in her eyes
And as we listen to the ocean’s roar
It’s not just a dream, it’s paradise
Her Aloha is more than just a word
It’s island love that grows and grows
Her voice is the loveliest ever heard
Oh, my lovely Maui rose



Within The Reef (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2005) (song#3705)

Within the reef, where the waters are oh, so warm
My true love there awaits, safe from the raging storm
Gone for a year, will I be regretting
I must calm my fear, of her forgetting

I’ll buy a thousand leis
On the isle where tradewinds blow
I’ll show in a thousand ways
That my heart still loves her so

Tomorrow is when I’ll know
If my heart will know relief
Til then my prayers are whispered low
For my love within the reef

I’ll buy a thousand leis
On the isle where tradewinds blow
I’ll show in a thousand ways
That my heart still loves her so

Tomorrow is when I’ll know
If my heart will know relief
Til then my prayers are whispered low
For my love within the reef



My Maui Maid (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2005) (song#3706)

Dreaming, every night I’m dreaming
Scheming of a way to return once more
To my Maui maid
I know that she wants me to
For her mem’ry still haunts me too
For the loss of love I sit and pine
I must sail again across the brine
To my Maui maid

Smiling, in her island styling
She has a way of beguiling
When twilight shadows fall
I have told the moon above her
That I want to hold and love her
Every time the islands call

There’s an island maid in Maui
In steamy old, dreamy old Maui
That polynesian isle
For her, my heart is yearning
Sometimes I think it’s burning
For her polynesian smile

So, I’ll soon be returning
On a ship sailing o’er the blue
If the man in the moon’s discerning
He’ll be unveiling a love so true
I’ll try to arrive in time
To make my Maui maiden mine



My Dreams (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2005) (song#3707)

Over where the tradewinds blow
In my dreams she smiled at me last night
That was when my dreams began to glow
My dreams are getting better each and every night

Over where the tradewinds blow
She looked at me and it felt so right
That was when I knew I loved her so
My dreams are getting better each and every night

To think that somehow we accident’ly met
Over where the tradewinds blow
It seems like just a dream was sent, and yet
She said Aloha, hello

Over where the tradewinds blow
And the stars all twinkle softly with their light
That’s where tonight again I’ll go
My dreams are getting better each and every night

To think that somehow we accident’ly met
Over where the tradewinds blow
It seems like just a dream was sent, and yet
She said Aloha, hello

Over where the tradewinds blow
And the stars all twinkle softly with their light
That’s where tonight again I’ll go
My dreams are getting better each and every night



My Empty Heart (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2005) (song#3708)

Empty heart that longs for her
Empty heart that cries love songs for her
And this heart will remain this way
Til she returns again some day

Every lonely night when I go to bed
I say a prayer that she’s safe and warm
And every night when my prayer is said
I dream again that she’s in my arms

Empty heart, but it still beats strong
My empty heart knows she’s coming home
And when she, when she strolls upon this shore
My empty heart won’t be empty any more

Empty heart, but it still beats strong
My empty heart knows she’s coming home
And when she, when she strolls upon this shore
My empty heart won’t be empty any more

Yeah, my empty heart won’t be empty any more



Pua Laha ‘Ole (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2005) (song#3709)

Pua laha ‘ole
You are the choisest flower from above
Pua mae ‘ole
My ku’u ipo flower of love

Pua laha ‘ole
Tonight how bright your polynesian eyes
Pua mae ‘ole
My sweetheart flower of paradise

The light that comes with the morning dawn
Shines upon an island flower, oh, so rare
You are my sweetheart, all I ever want to own
More beautiful than the flower in your hair

Pua laha ‘ole
All my dreams are only you
Pua mae ‘ole
You have made my dreams come true



Plane She Flys (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2005) (song#3710)

Plane she flys
Contrails sixteen miles long
Plane she flys
Contrails sixteen miles long
Well, that high flyin’ silver plane
Takin’ my baby from this tropic zone

Plane, plane
Please bring her back, back again
Plane, plane
Bring her back, back again
Well, you took away my island baby
My poor broken heart will never mend

Plane, plane
Flyin’ high, high up o’er the brine
Plane, plane
Flyin’ high up o’er the brine
Well, you took away my island baby
And she was mine, all, all mine
Yeah, she was mine, all, all mine



Aloha ‘Oe Soft And Low (Larry W. Jones 04/03/2005) (song#3711)

Way down on warm island sand
A hula maiden held my hand
And sang an old sweet melody

For her I placed with gentle care
A rose so fragrant in her hair
As tradewinds whispered love’s symphony

At the luau we danced the hours away
Polynesian eyes spoke of love where breezes play

I told her tomorrow I must go
Left her there where the tradewinds blow
And the band played Aloha ‘Oe soft and low

For her I placed with gentle care
A rose so fragrant in her hair
As tradewinds whispered love’s symphony

At the luau we danced the hours away
Polynesian eyes spoke of love where breezes play

I told her tomorrow I must go
Left her there where the tradewinds blow
And the band played Aloha ‘Oe soft and low



Dream I Left Behind (Larry W. Jones 04/06/2005) (song#3712)

There’s a tropic star where you are
On an island that’s so far
You are the dream I left behind
I now play my lonely guitar
Won’dring just how you are
You are the dream I left behind

I’m gonna keep on playin’ sad til I die
For tears I’ve had since I left paradise

There’s a tropic star where you are
On an island that’s so far
You are the dream I left behind

Last night I strolled upon your shore
A dream I can’t ignore
You are the dream I left behind
My love was only you, over in Hawaii blue
You are the dream I left behind

I’m gonna keep on playin’ sweet ‘an low
Island songs that will hurt my mind, I know

There’s a tropic star where you are
On an island that’s so far
You are the dream I left behind

You were to be my island bride
But my dreams sailed away with the tide
You are the dream I left behind

Now that I find you’re not around
There’s no joy for me that can be found
You are the dream I left behind

I’m gonna keep on playin’ without a wink
Old island love songs with dried up ink

There’s a tropic star where you are
On an island that’s so far
You are the dream I left behind



Old Island Love Song (Larry W. Jones 04/09/2005) (song#3713)

Just an old island love song
Playin’ where the tradewinds blow
Words of love so soft, yet strong
Sayin’ that I’ll never let you go
I know you might have heard it all before
Like sand that’s washed away from every shore
But our love is music that’s been drawn
From an old island love song

Just an old island love song
Played for you and me here by the sea
Just an old island love song
One with a polynesian melody

Where dreams come true in every way
When tiki lights are burnin’ low
Our love will be forever and a day
Learnin’ the music that makes lovin’ grow
I know you might have heard it all before
Like sand that’s washed away from every shore
But our love is music that’s been drawn
From an old island love song

Just an old island love song
Played for you and me here by the sea
Just an old island love song
One with a polynesian melody



Island World Of Mine (Larry W. Jones 04/09/2005) (song#3714)

Island world of mine
Island girl, you look divine on the shore
For you, my heart will always pine
Island girl of mine to adore

Love is like the colors of the sea
So tropical with blues and greens
And warm is this love for you and me
Formed by these tropic island scenes

On this moonlit tropic night
On this lovely moonlit tropic night
Stars above are shining bright
To light our hearts with love’s delight

Love is like the colors of the sea
So tropical with blues and greens
And warm is this love for you and me
Formed by these tropic island scenes

Romance has surely taken wing
For it plays on my heart’s every string
Island girl, you look divine on the shore
Island world of mine
Island girl of mine to adore



Slow Boat To Mandalay (Larry W. Jones 04/09/2005) (song#3715)

I’d love to be on holiday with you
On a slow boat to Mandalay
Sailing away upon the blue
With you all to myself all the way

I would hold you in my arms
Until reaching that distant shore
I’d be bold for all your charms
Teaching you that my love is evermore

You would have to leave all suitors
Behind and weeping on the mainland shore
Then I would gladly be your tutor
On a slow boat to Mandalay
Keeping close the one I so adore

We’d sail out o’er the deep blue ocean
To explore love’s deep devotion
And I’d win your heart where breezes play
I’d love to be on holiday with you
On a slow boat to Mandalay
Sailing away upon the blue
With you all to myself all the way



On An Island Like This (Larry W. Jones 04/10/2005) (song#3716)

On an island like this
Where skies are blue and mountains green
Everywhere I look, I can’t dismiss
Things that might have been on such a tropic scene

I hear soft island music as I tread
On golden sand where our goodbyes were said
On an island like this
I remember songs that flowed like wine
That once bestowed your love to mine

On an island like this
I can only wonder now of you
Maybe someone else now shares your kiss
And island songs are sung for someone new

I still see you strolling by these tall palm trees
Waves rolling gently with the breeze
On an island like this
I remember songs that flowed like wine
That once bestowed your love to mine

On an island like this
I can only wonder now of you
Maybe someone else now shares your kiss
And island songs are sung for someone new



Waikiki Canoe (Larry W. Jones 04/10/2005) (song#3717)

I saw you standing in the sand
Waiting by the Waikiki canoe
Looked like you could use a hand
And I knew just what to do

The gentle breeze that played around you
Seemed to say that I should stay around too

I saw you standing in the sand
The sunlight shining on your hair
I found love that was unplanned
Defining why I found you there

The gentle breeze that played around you
Seemed to say that I should stay around too

Then I saw you smile at me
And that was when I knew
The magic of the isle and sea
As we both paddled your canoe

That was the day, now it seems
That all my dreams came true
When I saw you standing in the sand
Waiting by the Waikiki canoe



On A Summer Night (Larry W. Jones 04/10/2005) (song#3718)

It was on a summer night
That you and I fell in love
It was on a summer night
I held you in my arms so tight
You and I over on the isle of love
(Isle of love)

It was on a summer night
Over where the tradewind blows
It was on a summer night
Your heart was beating, oh, so close
You and I over on the isle of love

When I kissed you, it was so tender
And I saw the lovelight on your face
Love was there in all its splendor
No one would ever take your place

Yes, it was on a summer night
That you and I fell in love
It was on a summer night
I held you in my arms so tight
You and I over on the isle of love
(Isle of love)



Lehua Blossom Lane (Larry W. Jones 04/11/2005) (song#3719)

That night when I first kissed you
As we strolled down Lehua Blossom Lane
I knew paradise had come true
As island music tolled a sweet refrain

I remember how the stars were out
And how the tropic moon was on the wane
There was no doubt that love would sprout
As we strolled down Lehua Blossom Lane

But then came time to say Aloha ‘oe
It was so hard to say goodbye
Our island music was a symphony
But now that song just asks me why

Where are those Lehua blossoms
That once were blooming on the bough
Where are those island love songs
And I wonder where you’re strolling now

My lonely heart will keep on yearning
Though I know it’s filled with pain
I’ll be waiting for your returning
So that I can kiss you once again
As we stroll down Lehua Blossom Lane



Tuberoses Bloom In Moonlight (Larry W. Jones 04/11/2005) (song#3720)

Sweet tuberoses bloom in moonlight
Over here in Hawaii blue
Love was in bloom on that June night
Love that was dear and true

That flower was still there at the dawn
A love that would never see demise
Years have come and years have gone
And our love still blooms in paradise

It’s so peaceful here at twilight
With you near when day is through
Watching tuberoses bloom in moonlight
As each night our love renews

Sweet tuberoses bloom in moonlight
Over here in Hawaii blue
Love was in bloom on that June night
Love that was dear and true

Sweet tuberoses bloom in moonlight
Over here in Hawaii blue
Our love blooms here every night
To make our dreams come true



Neath Swaying Palms Of Paradise (Larry W. Jones 04/11/2005) (song#3721)

Dreams of you still make me sigh
‘Neath swaying palms of paradise
Dreams of you, you and I
Dreams that make me want to cry

One day I’ll return to cloudless skies
We’ll stroll the sand together, you and I
Tiki lights will burn into the night
And dreams again will come alive

Dreams of you still make me sigh
‘Neath swaying palms of paradise
Dreams of you, you and I
Dreams that make me want to cry

One day I’ll return to stay
Make believe I never went away
Until then I’ll dream each day
Dreams of you, you and I
‘Neath swaying palms of paradise

One day I’ll return to stay
Make believe I never went away
Until then I’ll dream each day
Dreams of you, you and I
‘Neath swaying palms of paradise



Jerry Byrd (Larry W. Jones 04/11/2005) (song#3722)

Jerry Byrd was a man of steel
He was the master of touch and tone
To know he’s gone just don’t seem real
But Jerry’s life has come and flown

Jerry Byrd meant a lot to us
We’ll all miss his golden touch
His music always was a plus
His steel guitar played so much

Til April eleven in twenty oh five
Jerry kept musical dreams alive
He was the master of touch and tone
For cowboys and the tropic zone

But we’ve got more than his steel guitar
We’ve got his music that will ‘ere be heard
You were loved both near and far
Master of touch and tone was Jerry Byrd
Master of touch and tone was Jerry Byrd



We’ll Have Sunshine (Larry W. Jones 04/11/2005) (song#3723)

Some day we’ll have sunshine
We’ll know the joys of spring
I’ll be yours and you’ll be mine
We’ll know what love can bring

Someone once told me
That true love takes time to grow (time to grow)
But now that you’re here, I see (here, I see)
True love is here, I know

Some day we’ll have sunshine
Just like on a tropic isle
I’ll be yours and you’ll be mine
You’ll wear a lei and a smile

Our island will be magic
In paradise is where we’ll stay (where we’ll stay)
Forever and a day (forever and a day)
Some day we’ll have sunshine
I’ll be yours (and you’ll be mine)

Our island will be magic
In paradise is where we’ll stay
Forever and a day
Some day we’ll have sunshine
Some day we’ll have sunshine



On The Island Of Song (Larry W. Jones 04/11/2005) (song#3724)

We danced on the island
The whole evening long
We’ve never stopped dancing
To that island song

The song they were playing
When you and I met
Is one that had words
Neither of us will forget

When guitars started playing
I asked for your hand
I held you close under stars
In that isle wonderland

There we both found love
And we knew before long
That we’d dance together forever
On the island of song

When guitars started playing
I asked for your hand
I held you close under stars
In that isle wonderland

There we both found love
And we knew before long
That we’d dance together forever
On the island of song



Mauna Palehua (Larry W. Jones 04/16/2005) (song#3725)

In the stillness it calls to me
Luna lilo mauna Palehua
Mountain of majesty
High and lofty is mauna Palehua
I hear you calling me

Waianae is where you range
Mid valleys wide that never change
Mauna Palehua
Mountain of majesty by the sea
I hear you calling me

Unforgettable is mauna Palehua
Pua ohi’a is your adornment
Red flower of Palehua
In the sun I see it’s lovely glint
Full of honey for manu i’iwi

Haina ia mai ka puana la mau loa
Let the refrain be told forevermore
This ends my mele
Of luna lilo mauna Palehua
Mountain of majesty



When You’re By My Side (Larry W. Jones 04/16/2005) (song#3726)

Only when you’re by my side
That’s when the music begins
Then love itself can’t be denied
No pretend, but only when you’re by my side

I don’t want to live on the mainland
I only want to be your island main man
I’m never lonely, on the out or inside
But only when you’re by my side

I guess you could call me idealistic
But you impress me as a dream that’s realistic
Give me the twilight, some moonlight
And all my love I’ll confide
When islands call, dreams turn out all right
But only when you’re by my side

Only when you’re by my side
That’s when the music begins
Then love itself can’t be denied
No pretend, but only when you’re by my side

I don’t want to live on the mainland
I only want to be your island main man
I’m never lonely, on the out or inside
But only when you’re by my side



Out In The Ocean (Larry W. Jones 04/17/2005) (song#3727)

Whenever I need to find a slower pace
I feed my mind on a lower latitude
On an island with a better attitude and place
Out in the ocean

This air I breath just makes me groan
So, before mistakes pile up and sorrows bring
I’ll sail away to a tropic zone
Where I can stroll along with a song to sing

Whenever I feel the system pressing in on me
The wheels of my mind are set in motion
There’s less distress where I can feel free
Out in the ocean

This air I breath just makes me groan
So, before mistakes pile up and sorrows bring
I’ll sail away to a tropic zone
Where I can stroll along with a song to sing

This air I breath just makes me groan
So, before mistakes pile up and sorrows bring
I’ll sail away to a tropic zone
Where I can stroll along with a song to sing
Out in the ocean
Out in the ocean



Out Of Western Skies (Larry W. Jones 04/17/2005) (song#3728)

Full moon in the western sky
Look down where islands lie
Smile down where dreams are made
Where dreams now a polynesian maiden
Dreaming of an island man so bold
Living on warm sands of gold
Calling in the tradewind air
Pleading for his island love so fair

Yonder in those far off lands
We’ll wander on warm island sands
Where palm trees grow is where we’ll go
Over where soft breezes blow
Rainbows will welcome you, my dear
The sun will fill your heart with cheer
Those clear blue skies are calling so
Bidding us now quickly go

Polynesian maiden
For you my heart in love is laden
Wahine arrayed in native glory
Dream again of love’s sweet desire
Like sugar cane and tiki fire
Told in every song and isle talk story
Dream of things beguiling
Of islands that are smiling
Upon my ku’u ipo sweetheart in slumber
Where your fair form now lies
All the polynesian
Dreams of paradise arise
Out of western skies



In Old Lahaina Town (Larry W. Jones 04/18/2005) (song#3729)

Say what you want
It beats cold Vermont
That tropical place where I’ll settle down
The tradewind air is fair, flowers rare
In old Lahaina town

Spring and summer never end
Kona coffee is the local blend
Old Maui isle won’t let you down
It’s like a dream, that tropical theme
In old Lahaina town

Up there the moon
Is a golden yellow mirror
Reflecting like a big balloon
Bringing paradise just a little nearer
A place where lovers swoon

Spring and summer never end
Kona coffee is the local blend
Old Maui isle won’t let you down
It’s like a dream, that tropical theme
In old Lahaina town

Old Maui isle won’t let you down
It’s like a dream, that tropical theme
In old Lahaina town



I Whisper Your Name (Larry W. Jones 04/18/2005) (song#3730)

I never strayed on a trip to the moon
For love never played that one special tune
Now I can’t explain this feeling inside
My heart is still reeling with you by my side

More and more I whisper your name
Here on the shore, love’s a warm tiki flame
Love is all that I see in your eyes
Islands have called you to my paradise

I no longer remember the tears that I cried
Stronger is true love with you by my side
Dreams that I dreamed of now have come true
How I have dreamed of this moment with you

More and more I whisper your name
Here on the shore, love’s a warm tiki flame
Love is all that I see in your eyes
Islands have called you to my paradise

The days and the years all may grow old
But there is no way my love will grow cold
With you in my arms, paradise came today
True to love’s charms is the way we will stay

More and more I whisper your name
Here on the shore, love’s a warm tiki flame
Love is all that I see in your eyes
Islands have called you to my paradise



Over The Ocean With You (Larry W. Jones 04/18/2005) (song#3731)

I am sailing home, my darling
Over the ocean to you
Sailing day and twilight til dawning
Over the ocean to you

When the red tropic sun is sinking
There’s only one that my heart is thinking of
When tomorrow’s stars are out blinking
I’ll be over the ocean with you, my love

It’s so lonely where waves are tossing
I only want to be with you
I could barely wait for this crossing
Over the ocean to you

Every league sailed is with yearning
My heart is intrigued with returning
My love that is strong will enfold you
When I’m over the ocean with you

It’s so lonely where waves are tossing
I only want to be with you
I could barely wait for this crossing
Over the ocean to you

Every league sailed is with yearning
My heart is intrigued with returning
My love that is strong will enfold you
When I’m over the ocean with you



Over Horizons (Larry W. Jones 04/19/2005) (song#3732)

Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa-oh
Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa-oh

Over horizons
Beyond the sea-ee
A girl on an island is waiting for me

Sail over horizons
Where the tide’s flowing slow-whoa
She’s on that fair island
Where tradewinds are blowing low-whoa
Over horizons
A girl on an island is waiting for me-ee-ee-ee-ee

We’ll stroll in the sand, hand in ha-nd
Tradewinds will tell her
That I’m her island ma-an
Over horizons
A girl on an island is waiting for me-ee-ee-ee-ee

I’ll tell the stars far up ab-ove
I’ll tell the moon that she’s my lo-ov
Yes, over horizons, over horizons
A girl on an island is waiting for me

I’ll tell the stars far up ab-ove
I’ll tell the moon that she’s my lo-ov
Yes, over horizons, over horizons
A girl on an island is waiting for me-ee-ee-ee-ee

Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa-oh
Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa-oh



Mahalo For A Lovely Day (Larry W. Jones 04/24/2005) (song#3733)

I’ve felt the tradewind’s warming breeze
I’ve seen birds of paradise
Islands circled by tall palm trees
And rainbows in the skies

Spring and summer are all around
Paradise each day reborn
Beauty here is quite profound
Bright is the love that isles adorn

I hear a voice of sweet enchantment
Strolling hand in hand I hear her say
From love’s book that’s never out of print
Mahalo for a lovely day

The ocean’s running I can’t comprehend
But the tide brings love from everywhere
What has begun must never end
For I will always want her near

Clear as the beating of a drum
The music must never go away
I want forever to become
Mahalo for a lovely day with you



Sail On Gypsy Sailor (Larry W. Jones 04/24/2005) (song#3734)

Sail on gypsy sailor
Sail on gypsy sailor
Sail upon the seas that I love
Return the youthful yearnings of my heart

Before my dreams all fade
Let me hear that serenade
From islands in the stream
When love was more than just a dream
Sail on gypsy sailor
Return the youthful yearnings of my heart

Sail on gypsy sailor
Sail your ship before the wind
Sail on gypsy sailor
Back to isles where you have been
Back to before love would depart
Return the youthful yearnings of my heart

Sail on gypsy sailor
Sail your ship before the wind
Sail on gypsy sailor
Back to isles where you have been
Back to before love would depart
Return the youthful yearnings of my heart



Warm Night Of Golden Moon (Larry W. Jones 04/25/2005) (song#3735)

Warm night of golden moon
Warm music of my guitar tune
Floating on the tradewinds
Of this warm island shore

Warm night of golden moon
Your hand in mine this night in June
Warm as music from violins
Only makes me love you more

This is the way love ought to be
Warm as the love you brought to me
Your heart and mine are so in tune
On this warm night of golden moon

I once was lost and lonely
Until the islands spoke of love
I crossed to sea to love you only
On this warm night of golden moon above

This is the way love ought to be
Warm as the love you brought to me
Your heart and mine are so in tune
On this warm night of golden moon

I once was lost and lonely
Until the islands spoke of love
I crossed to sea to love you only
On this warm night of golden moon above



Reaching For The Moon (Larry W. Jones 04/25/2005) (song#3736)

Once we were the best of friends
You, the tropic moon, and I
Then came the night that friendship ends
When the moon faded from our paradise

Reaching for the moon
High in the velvet tropic skies of blue
How did our love get out of tune
How did the moon get out of view

Wishing now upon a star
How I wish that you had stayed
I wonder where you are
I wonder why it was you strayed

Reaching for the moon
High in the velvet tropic skies of blue
How did our love get out of tune
How did the moon get out of view

In the velvet tropic blue I see
Only mem’ries of you strolling here with me
Until you return to me
On the reef my broken heart is strewn
I’m lost here on this island in the sea
Reaching for the moon and you



Strolling On The Island (Larry W. Jones 04/26/2005) (song#3737)

It was on a sunny afternoon
Birds of paradise were singing
And all along the waterfall
Orchids bright were springing
I strolled with my Leilani dear
Sweet and shy and tanned
She listened to my song of love
While strolling on the island

She was my one and only love
I vowed to leave her never
Under tropic moon and stars above
Our love would last forever
The setting sun then touched the clouds
A view that was so grand
I kissed her and then she kissed me
Such was love’s command

Now the years have come and gone
As well as first love’s dreaming
But like the silver of the clouds
True love is still here gleaming
And treasured to my hopeful heart
As when Leilani gave her hand
Still as true as when I wooed her love
While strolling on the island



Red Hawaiian Moon (Larry W. Jones 04/28/2005) (song#3738)

We’re waltzing beneath the red Hawaiian moon
Kiss me again as I hold you in my arms
This is Aloha beneath the red Hawaiian moon
Waltzing with you and with your charms

Daylight will be coming at the dawn
Moonlight will be leaving us soon
Let’s keep on waltzing til the night is gone
Waltzing beneath the red Hawaiian moon

While steel guitars are playing
You and I will be swaying to and fro
Tradewinds tonight are saying
This love will surely grow and grow

While the music of the ocean
Sounds its distant melody
The red Hawaiian moon in motion
Will know how close our love can be

We’re waltzing beneath the red Hawaiian moon
Kiss me again as I hold you in my arms
This is Aloha beneath the red Hawaiian moon
Waltzing with you and with your charms

Daylight will be coming at the dawn
Moonlight will be leaving us soon
Let’s keep on waltzing til the night is gone
Waltzing beneath the red Hawaiian moon



Real True Love (Larry W. Jones 05/02/2005) (song#3739)

I can’t buy you expensive diamonds
I can’t buy you pricey clothes
But I will try to give you real true love
Real true love where the tradewind blows

I can buy you lots of flowers
I can buy one for your hair
I’ll give all that love empowers
Real true love that we can share

Real true love, I’ll give you real true love
We’ll live with real true love
Under all these blue, blue skies above

I can’t throw you a rich man’s wedding
On a day in June with vintage wine
But under the moon is real true love
Wrapped up in this heart of mine

Real true love, I’ll give you real true love
We’ll live with real true love
Under all these blue, blue skies above

I can’t throw you a rich man’s wedding
On a day in June with vintage wine
But under the moon is real true love
Wrapped up in this heart of mine

Real true love, I’ll give you real true love
We’ll live with real true love
Under all these blue, blue skies above



Silver Sails In The Moonlight (Larry W. Jones 05/02/2005) (song#3740)

In Waikiki tradewinds were bringing
A plaintive sound as I strolled along
An island girl down there was singing
And this sad refrain was her song

Silver sails in the moonlight
Out beyond the distant reef
Please bring home my love tonight
So my heart will know relief

There’s a gale on the sea tonight
He sailed with the evening tide
Silver sails in the moonlight
Bring him home safely to my side

Sail fast through the thunder
And past the reef to the shore
For this grief my heart is under
Is for the one I so adore

Silver sails in the moonlight
Out beyond the distant reef
Please bring home my love tonight
So my heart will know relief

Silver sails, the gale is blowing
Moonlight fades behind the cloud
Waves now are big and growing
Will we know love that we vowed

Silver sails in the moonlight
Out beyond the distant reef
Please bring home my love tonight
So my heart will know relief



For I Remember You (Larry W. Jones 05/03/2005) (song#3741)

I remember a fine September
No, it wasn’t June
You were mine as we danced
To that island tune
And I remember how we talked
About a honeymoon
Yes, it’s true
For I remember you

I remember all the tall palm trees
Waving in the breeze
I recall a cottage small on the beach
By deep blue seas
And I remember when islands
Called you here to me
Yes, it’s true
For I remember you

I still can see how much
Your mem’ry means to me
I remember your touch
And scenes there by the sea
You were the joy for this island boy
But now I’m blue
Yes, it’s true
For I remember you

I still can see how much
Your mem’ry means to me
I remember your touch
And scenes there by the sea
You were the joy for this island boy
But now I’m blue
Yes, it’s true
For I remember you



Please Think Of Me (Larry W. Jones 05/03/2005) (song#3742)

Please think of me at the end of a lovely tropic day
Please think of me as you stroll down by the bay
It would be so nice if I were still in paradise
There by the sea
It’s been so long, but my love for you is strong
Darling, please think of me

Those island songs belong where love was starting
Warm island days beside the bays were ecstasy
The saddest sound that came around was at our parting
Underneath that tall palm tree
If you never find whoever was meant to be
Darling, please think of me

I heard you tell to me that you would dwell with me
Forever and for all eternity
But it seems somehow those dreams are now history
Not what they used to be

Another man may fit your plan since you departed
Some other fellow just as mellow as I tried to be
But if you find he’s not your kind
And he leaves you brokenhearted
Remember there’s still a burning ember on the brink of love
Darling, please think of me



You’re Still The Hula Girl For Me (Larry W. Jones 05/04/2005) (song#3743)

Well, you’re the same hula girl you used to be
You haven’t changed at all
The islands call, but that ain’t all
You still cause my heart to fall

Same lovely face, same hula grace
Same motion like the sea
And you’re still doin’ the hula, baby
You’re still the hula girl for me

You’re still doin’ the hula, baby
You can’t seem to stop
When my eyes are watchin’ you do the hula
My heart goes flippity flop

And I don’t want to stop myself
You top the best I’ll ever see
Yes, it’s true, I’m in love with you
You’re still the hula girl for me

Same lovely face, same hula grace
Same motion like the sea
And you’re still doin’ the hula, baby
You’re still the hula girl for me



Nanakuli Moon (Larry W. Jones 05/04/2005) (song#3744)

This night is like a dream
With you here in my arms
Waltzing with moonlight beams
Beholding all your charms

While I look deep in your eyes
As breast to breast we weave
Soon will appear in paradise
A golden moon this summer eve

Nanakuli Moon, up in the sky
Nanakuli Moon, of paradise
Shine upon my one desire
Your tiki fire, Nanakuli Moon

The island calls, twilight falls
I hope it doesn’t pass too soon
Waltzing to the island’s call
Beneath the Nanakuli Moon

The music playing is so divine
Let’s dance until the dawn
When your lips are kissing mine
My whole life to you is drawn

Sweet perfume of the tuberose
Is like the island sugar cane
Soft moonlight and tuberose
Knows you and I will waltz again

Nanakuli Moon, up in the sky
Nanakuli Moon, of paradise
Shine upon my one desire
Your tiki fire, Nanakuli Moon

The island calls, twilight falls
I hope it doesn’t pass too soon
Waltzing to the island’s call
Beneath the Nanakuli Moon



Maui Nights (Larry W. Jones 05/04/2005) (song#3745)

Maui nights are cloaked in grandeur
Down in old Lahaina town
Love is invoked there when you’re
Under the spell of moonlight coming down

There are no clouds to hide the hilltops
That look out on the peaceful sea
Moonlight time is the right time
To share your love with only me

Maui nights are made for wooing
Someone’s heart that will be true
That’s why I’m rendezvous-ing
Tonight because my heart’s with you

Maui nights are cloaked in grandeur
Down in old Lahaina town
Love is invoked there when you’re
Under the spell of moonlight coming down

There are no clouds to hide the hilltops
That look out on the peaceful sea
Moonlight time is the right time
To share your love with only me



Hawaii’s Hula Queen (Larry W. Jones 05/05/2005) (song#3746)

We know of girls who do the hula
We’ve heard of Hilo Hattie’s show
They sway away down in old Kula
But I say there’s one you need to know

She’s Hawaii’s champion dancer
She’s the vamp of the island scene
Everybody knows that she’s the answer
When it comes to Hawaii’s hula queen
She’s sweet Leilani, Hawaii’s hula queen

Her dance is like the ocean
Romance is her routine
Her hips are in slow motion
She’s Hawaii’s hula queen
She’s sweet Leilani, Hawaii’s hula queen

Her hips will sway just like palm trees
Polynesian eyes will make you dizzy
When hula music is on the breeze
She’ll put you’re brain in an awful tizzy

In my heart she’s most appealing
From the start she’s been my dream
I can’t help from feeling
That I’m in love with Hawaii’s hula queen
She’s sweet Leilani, Hawaii’s hula queen



Back Across The Western Ocean (Larry W. Jones 05/18/2005) (song#3747)

I want to return o’er the ocean
And feel your hand in mine
Stroll with you and feel the potion
Of island love that was divine

I can see the need to hear you
I can feel waves of emotion
That will lead me to your love true
Back across the western ocean

I guess I’ve known it all along
Back on the isle’s where I belong
A young man ran away for gold
But all he found was much too cold

Loneliness has had its day
Time to set love back in motion
I’ll return and then I’ll stay
Back across the western ocean

I guess I’ve known it all along
Back on the isle’s where I belong
A young man ran away for gold
But all he found was much too cold

Loneliness has had its day
Time to set love back in motion
I’ll return and then I’ll stay
Back across the western ocean



Hour Of Aloha Oe (Larry W. Jones 05/18/2005) (song#3748)

The tropic sun is setting in the west
Soon all the islands will be sleeping
Your love I will hold here in my breast
Deep In my heart will be its keeping

But now has come the hour of Aloha ‘oe
Tonight I sail out across the sea
I must not cower at the hour of going
For you have promised you will wait for me

When the moon shines bright at night
In my dreams I’ll find you near
It will be a sign that all is right
Til I return to wipe away your tear

Love that’s true must at times be parted
A parting kiss can be sweet sorrow
But love as ours is ne’er uncharted
Our hearts will meet again some glad tomorrow

But now has come the hour of Aloha ‘oe
Tonight I sail out across the sea
I must not cower at the hour of going
For you have promised you will wait for me



Old Maui My Own (Larry W. Jones 05/18/2005) (song#3749)

My deepest thoughts roam when I’m so far from home
So far from old Maui far over the sea
My heart is still there, in that sweet perfumed air
And I hear dear old Maui calling to me

Oh, I want to return to that shack where I learned
What ohana love was intended for
Where poi will be fed to a lad who had fled
Away from a friend and paradise shore

There’s a sail in the wind guiding me home again
Back to that shack in a tropical zone
It’s there that I’ll find that peace of mind
And from that shack I’ll never more roam

Eyes that had tears will welcome the cheers
When tropical rainbows upon him have shown
And the topic that day will be Aloha displayed
When I return to old maui, my own

Oh, I want to return to that shack where I learned
What ohana love was intended for
Where poi will be fed to a lad who had fled
Away from a friend and paradise shore

Eyes that had tears will welcome the cheers
When tropical rainbows upon him have shown
And the topic that day will be Aloha displayed
When I return to old maui, my own



Kalenalani (Larry W. Jones 05/19/2005) (song#3750)

Kalenalani I revere you
My every thought is always near you
Though I sail the boundless sea tomorrow
When I return there’ll be no sorrow

Kalenalani please be understanding
True love for you my heart’s commanding
I’ll return to you with all endeavor
The isle will call with dreams forever

Remember this June night at Waikiki
Remember this moonlight caressing the sea
Tradewinds are whispering from above
The melody of our song of island love

Kalenalani our future will render
Love that is true in all of its splendor
So promise the velvet skies above
That here in paradise you’ll be my love



October Moonlight (Larry W. Jones 05/19/2005) (song#3751)

The island summer now is gone
October moonlight fills the air
Toward tropic isles my thoughts are drawn
To someone who still thrills me there

Again I dream of island spring
And the promise of a tolling bell
The scene is of a wedding ring
When all the world was well

Paradise has come and gone
Just like a dream that wasn’t true
October moonlight’s on the lawn
Its beams will soon shine down on you

Again I dream of island spring
And the promise of a tolling bell
The scene is of a wedding ring
When all the world was well

October moonlight’s soft and clear
But I remember island June and you
As I dream, I hope that sometimes, dear
An island tune bids you remember too



Tropic Kind Of Love (Larry W. Jones 05/20/2005) (song#3752)

I’ve got a tropic kind of love in my heart
And that’s where it always will stay
For you it is there to impart
An island kind of love night and day
I’ve got a tropic kind of love in my heart

I’ve got a tropic kind of love in my heart
And that’s where it always will be
Time itself can’t tear it apart
For you’ll be mine eternally
I’ve got a tropic kind of love in my heart

I’ve got a tropic kind of love in my heart
And that’s where it always will stay
For you it is there to impart
An island kind of love night and day
I’ve got a tropic kind of love in my heart

A tropic kind of love is one that’s ever true
A tropic kind of love was made for me and you
Nothing in this world could tear it apart
I’ve got a tropic kind of love in my heart

I’ve got a tropic kind of love in my heart
And that’s where it always will be
Time itself can’t tear it apart
For you’ll be mine eternally
I’ve got a tropic kind of love in my heart



Land Of Aloha (Larry W. Jones 05/20/2005) (song#3753)

To Hawaii’s golden shores long ago they sailed
Ne’re before such beauty had they ever hailed
Voyagers from the distant south sea isles
Persistent in their long canoes for many miles

As they looked at mountains filled with awe
They called Hawaii the land of Aloha
And now a sad haole in a land away so far
Sings of an island maiden with his guitar

Wahine, maid from the land of Aloha
There on your shore I long to stroll
Where tradewinds blow the rainbow
You are the ku’u ipo of my soul

I only want to be your loving kane
On your islands where love is law
And live in the land of Kanaka Maoli
In Hawaii, the land of Aloha

Wahine, maid from the land of Aloha
There on your shore I long to stroll
Where tradewinds blow the rainbow
You are the ku’u ipo of my soul

I only want to be your loving kane
On your islands where love is law
And live in the land of Kanaka Maoli
In Hawaii, the land of Aloha



Isle Of A Thousand Dreams (Larry W. Jones 05/21/2005) (song#3754)

On this isle of a thousand dreams
Let me dream with you upon its shore
While the music of steel guitars
Plays our song of love for evermore

In the glow of the setting sunlight beams
Our love will grow eternally
On this isle of a thousand dreams
Come and dream away with me

I never knew how sweet a kiss could be
Til I chanced to meet you by the sea
I was a gypsy soul with no control
Now my wand’ring days are through since I met you
You were there to console
On that day when you strolled my way
You made me whole

On this isle
On this isle
On this isle of a thousand dreams
Let me dream with you upon its shore
While the music of steel guitars
Plays our song of love for evermore



Old And Golden Moon (Larry W. Jones 05/22/2005) (song#3755)

The moon up there is old and golden
And the night and our hearts are young
A chance Aloha spoken between us
Became a token of romance yet unsung

The moon up there is old and golden
How mellow is the light upon the bay
A fellow might be emboldened
To give his heart away

Let’s let this magic tune continue
Here beneath the golden moon we are
This month of June is the time to win you
If I may ask you to dream that far

I’ve met a dream and I mean to keep it
Neath a golden moon while the song is sung
The moon up there is old and golden
And the night and our hearts are young



That Yellow Tropical Moon (Larry W. Jones 05/26/2005) (song#3756)

That yellow tropical moon is up above
That yellow tropical moon is the topic of love
No paper moon could ‘ere replace its place in empty space
When I stroll with you down by the bay
That yellow tropical moon tells this fellow what to say

Not even the stars and steel guitars could tell as well
As that yellow tropical moon says that true love will dwell
Only the man in the moon knows of this
That my heart glows with love from your every kiss

When our hearts beat together just as one
There’s no way this love can be undone
We can thank that yellow tropical moon above
For this island kind of love

Not even the stars and steel guitars could tell as well
As that yellow tropical moon says that true love will dwell
Only the man in the moon knows of this
That my heart glows with love from your every kiss

When our hearts beat together just as one
There’s no way this love can be undone
We can thank that yellow tropical moon above
For this island kind of love



In The Shade Of Swaying Palms (Larry W. Jones 05/27/2005) (song#3757)

Hele mai, ku’u ipo, to an isle I know
To southern seas where gentle tradewinds blow
Skies will be blue for me and you

We’ll stroll in the shade of swaying palms
Where the sea is peaceful, blue and calm
While breezes whisper Aloha too

In the shade of swaying palms
Where lovers have always played
The air is filled with sweetest balm
Fragrant blossoms for an island maid

Skies are painted a dazzling hue
There’s no restraint for tempting lips there too
I’ll acquaint you to the guitar strum
In the shade of swaying palms

So, hele mai, ku’u ipo, this very day
Come with me, let’s go without delay
To a southern isle where the life is calm

I know a place for me and you
We’ll slow the pace and love renew
In the shade I’ll sing this serenade

In the shade of swaying palms
Where lovers have always played
The air is filled with sweetest balm
Fragrant blossoms for an island maid

Skies are painted a dazzling hue
There’s no restraint for tempting lips there too
I’ll acquaint you to the guitar strum
In the shade of swaying palms



Voyager’s Heart (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2005) (song#3758)

Stars will guide me as a voyager
As o’re the seas I sail
The moon is mine in night time
And the sun by day I say avail

I’m a voyager, a voyager ’round the world
Seen all the earth and seven seas
Yet love is in this voyager’s heart
Wherever I may be

Many times have I seen the stars
Lose each and every guiding light
The moon as queen may fade afar
Just as the sun sets every night

I owe them all my greatest debt
A voyager as I sail the sea
Should they fail, then love will yet
Guide this voyager’s heart of me

Stars will guide me as a voyager
As o’re the seas I sail
The moon is mine in night time
And the sun by day I say avail

I owe them all my greatest debt
A voyager as I sail the sea
Should they fail, then love will yet
Guide this voyager’s heart of me



Another Island Summer (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2005) (song#3759)

Island summer’s coming on
I love to hear its sound
Tradewind breeze through tall palm trees
Is everywhere around
All good dreams come true, it seems
When island summer starts
And that’s why I sing
For your love brings a song to my heart

Another island summer
I’ve never felt this way before
Another island summer
I feel so alive here on the shore
Spring is such a hopeful time
Winter has met its demise
I’ll just let this island clime
Bring me your sweet love in paradise

Another island summer
I am captured by its spell
Another island summer
My heart’s enraptured, I can tell
The rhythm of the island drums
Tells me I’m not alone
It stems from the dream that comes
When you’re in love all summer long



Love For Another (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2005) (song#3760)


Young she was and oh, so lovely
Around her neck she wore a lei
A chieftan ali’i loved her completely
On the isle where tradewinds play

The love that was in her eyes
Was as the moonlight on the bay
But her love in that paradise
Was for another who sailed away

Whenever Maui chimes were ringing
A smile would come upon her face
Her heart to a sailor boy was clinging
No other joy could take his place

Her heart was filled with a mem’ry
And there until forever will it stay
Of a love that wasn’t meant to be
And of another who sailed away

The love that was in her eyes
Was as the moonlight on the bay
But her love in that paradise
Was for another who sailed away



My Pillow (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2005) (song#3761)

My pillow is the moon above
A place to lay my head
The velvet sky consists thereof
A space to make my bed

The stars are only a disguise
For eyes of angels filled with love
For here in this island paradise
They still watch from up above

And my cover is a down-filled cloud
I wrap it around me good and tight
And as I say my prayers out loud
Tradewinds lullaby me asleep at night

My pillow is the moon above
A place to lay my head
The velvet sky consists thereof
A space to make my bed

The stars are only a disguise
For eyes of angels filled with love
For here in this island paradise
They still watch from up above

And my cover is a down-filled cloud
I wrap it around me good and tight
And as I say my prayers out loud
Tradewinds lullaby me asleep at night



I’ll Always Call You Ku’u Ipo (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2005) (song#3762)

Darling, I’ll always call you ku’u ipo
For my sweetheart is your name
My heart is filled with love, you know
And for you sings its refrain

I will always stroll beside you
Through the years here by the sea
Darling, I’ll always call you ku’u ipo
For my sweetheart you’ll always be

I always knew somehow I’d meet you
And greet you with Aloha, the island way
Where tradewinds blow, I love you so true
And so I wrote this song just to say

Darling, I’ll always call you ku’u ipo
For my sweetheart is your name
My heart is filled with love, you know
And for you sings its refrain

I will always stroll beside you
Through the years here by the sea
Darling, I’ll always call you ku’u ipo
For my sweetheart you’ll always be



Forever A Dream (Larry W. Jones 05/29/2005) (song#3763)

Well, I wasn’t looking for a dream
Cause I knew a dream was hard to find
And even if I ever found a dream
I wondered if I’d ever be her kind

No, I wasn’t looking for a queen
Cause I knew a king I’d never be
I was only looking in an island scene
For a love that would last eternally

Someone who didn’t live for money
A girl to give her hand in a tropic zone
Someone that I could call my honey
A true love that I could call my own

I found someone who made life worth living
Someone who’d be mine eternally
All my love to her I’ll be forever giving
Cause she’ll forever be a dream to me

I found someone who made life worth living
Someone who’d be mine eternally
All my love to her I’ll be forever giving
Cause she’ll forever be a dream to me



Driftwood On The Ocean (Larry W. Jones 05/29/2005) (song#3764)

I’m a piece of driftwood on the ocean
Just a sailor floating with the tides
Doesn’t matter where the current flows
Cause love no longer in my heart resides

I’m through thinking of the dreams that cannot be
Once in a while I meet some driftwood lost like me
But we just say hello and then goodbye
For a piece of driftwood has no anchor to apply

I’ve drifted through islands where tradewinds play
But I could never call one of them my home
I just stay awhile and then I’m on my way
Sailing like a piece of driftwood all alone

I’m a piece of driftwood on the open sea
I guess I’ll always be following the setting sun
No use thinking of the one who’s forgotten me
So, I’m drifting far away to forget someone

My heart is broken over what might have been
Like an island in the stream that couldn’t win
But with words unspoken I will stay the course
I’m a piece of driftwood on the ocean of remorse



Story Of A Tropic Night (Larry W. Jones 05/29/2005) (song#3765)

Let me relate to you a topic
A story of a tropic night
I had a date, but the topic
Is of the faded glory
Of an island dream that started bright

Two hearts were beating
Kisses were worth repeating
But in mirth were the words
Of her love, so sweet but fleeting

Now when the stars are out
I wonder what it’s all about
Our first Aloha by the sea
Became our last Aloha ‘oe

Two hearts were beating
Kisses were worth repeating
But in mirth were the words
Of her love, so sweet but fleeting

I wish that in some way
She’ll bring her love some day
So there will ring with delight
A story of a tropic night



Moose McGuilicuddy’s Waikiki (Larry W. Jones 06/03/2005) (song#3766)

Now, there’s a place in Waikiki town
Where the eatin’ and meetin’ is of reknown

It’s a hip joint where island folks all meet
Won’t disappoint when you drink and eat
And the music it’s got really can’t be beat
Between Don Ho and Lau’ula on Lewers Street

Moose McGuilicuddy’s is the place to be
You can listen to the rhythms of Waikiki
Stop on by til the mornin’ hours are wee
Between Don Ho and Lau’ula on Lewers Street

Hear the ukulele played eatin’ fish and poi
It’s a serenade for island girls and boys
Stop on by if you’re lookin’ for joy
Between Don Ho and Lau’ula on Lewers Street

Stroll on down if you’re feelin’ fine
Moose McGuilicuddy’s is the place to shine
You don’t need a reservation anytime
Just an Aloha shirt and sandals on your feet

It’s a hip joint where island folks all meet
Won’t disappoint when you drink and eat
And the music it’s got really can’t be beat
Between Don Ho and Lau’ula on Lewers Street

Moose McGuilicuddy’s is the place to be
You can listen to the rhythms of Waikiki
Stop on by til the mornin’ hours are wee
Between Don Ho and Lau’ula on Lewers Street



On A Midnight Sailboat Ride (Larry W. Jones 06/03/2005) (song#3767)

I’m goin’ sailin’ o’er the blue pacific
On a midnight sailboat ride
It’s so lovely on the tropic sea
With my ku’u ipo sweetheart by my side

O’er the blue pacific, lights along Waikiki’s shore
Wink at us as we go by
And the man in the moon winks some more
For he knows the reason why

I’m goin’ sailin’ o’er the blue pacific
On a midnight sailboat ride
Sailin’ o’er the blue pacific
What a night for a sailboat ride

O’er the blue pacific, lights along Waikiki’s shore
Wink at us as we go by
And the man in the moon winks some more
For he knows the reason why

I’m goin’ sailin’ o’er the blue pacific
On a midnight sailboat ride
It’s so lovely on the tropic sea
With my ku’u ipo sweetheart by my side
O’er the blue pacific
On a midnight sailboat ride



My Love Is A Tropical Thing (Larry W. Jones 06/03/2005) (song#3768)

Like an island
I’m here in the stream waiting for your love
Hele mai, come to me
Come and dream on my island in the sea

Like the shore sands
I’ll caress the endless waves of love’s demands
Like the shore sands and the tide
I’ll be always there by your side

My true love for you is a tropical thing
Like the gold of a rainbow in the spring
Soft as the music of steel guitars
Like moonlight under tropical stars

Yes, my love is a tropical thing
Like the tradewind breeze
And when I place a flower in your hair
I know that you’ll be pleased
To know that I’ll be always there
A tropical thing, my love
For you, my love is a tropical thing



I Love Islands (Larry W. Jones 06/03/2005) (song#3769)

I love islands, I love islands
Everybody in the world loves islands
An island is a play place, a holiday place
Surf and sand and sun in your face place

Everybody strolls around in old Lahaina town
You’ll never frown when you turn golden brown
A kiss is never missed, you understand
There’s something magic about an island

A kiss is never missed, you understand
There’s something magic about an island

I love islands, I love islands
Everybody loves to go where tradewinds blow
It’s a swell place, paradise hotel place
Every dream seems to ask for your embrace

On a tropical night, stars come out so bright
Some even guide lonely heart in the moonlight
So, take a chance, find romance in the sand
If you do, then you’ll find too
Why I love islands, I love islands



Not Just A Summer Island Love (Larry W. Jones 06/03/2005) (song#3770)

Say that you’ll always love me true
Tell me I’m not just a summer island love
Made to cry and feeling blue

Say that you’ll always want me
Tell me I’m not just a summer island love
Left with just a dream or two

And say that when the sunshine
Is no longer warming island sand
That you’ll inform me that you’re still mine
And we’ll be strolling hand in hand

Tell me I’m not just a summer island love
Made to cry and feeling blue
Tell me I’m not just a summer island love
Left with just a dream or two

And by the way, please say
That what began as a summer island love
Will never fade away

That what began as a summer island love
Is not just a summer island love



Should You Ever Go (Larry W. Jones 06/04/2005) (song#3771)

Should you ever go
If you were to leave me alone
There’d be no spring where tradewinds blow
No paradise birds to sing love songs

Should you ever go
If you were to love me no more
Sunlight would fade to darkest night
And gloom would cover this golden shore

Should you ever go
If you were to leave me alone
There’d be no spring where tradewinds blow
No paradise birds to sing love songs
Oh, please may that never be
My heart would die inside of me
Should you ever go

There’d be no spring where tradewinds blow
No paradise birds to sing love songs
Oh, please may that never be
My heart would die inside of me
Should you ever go



Dreams To Impart (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2005) (song#3772)

Dreams to impart, and you in my heart
There’s something about it so new
I’ll never doubt it, islands have called
Now I am entrhalled by the view
All of my dreams have come true in you

Music in the air, there’s no time to spare
It’s a rare love affair for two
This paradise, I had to scout it out
I’m in love and it’s nice to shout it out too
All of my dreams have come true in you

There’s something about it so new
I’ll never doubt it, islands have called
Now I am entrhalled by the view

Music in the air, there’s no time to spare
It’s a rare love affair for two
This paradise, I had to scout it out
I’m in love and it’s nice to shout it out too
All of my dreams have come true in you



This Dance I’ll Remember (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2005) (song#3773)

This dance I’ll remember
This beautiful night
My dreams have come true
While holding you tight

This dance I’ll remember
If I ever feel blue
My dreams have come true
In Blue Hawaii with you

If time were to part things
And my dreams were not to be
This dance on my heart strings
Would bring you home to me

This dance I’ll remember
This beautiful night
So, let me call you sweetheart
While holding you tight

This dance I’ll remember
If I ever feel blue
My dreams have come true
In Blue Hawaii with you



My Heavenly One (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2005) (song#3774)

My heavenly one, you seem like a dream
Here on this island in the sea
My heavenly one, it’s you I esteem
Here in this heart of me

My heavenly one, I love you so
Whether I’m awake or fast asleep
You make the sun shine for me, I know
Your love I’ll treasure and keep

It’s only you that I adore
My heavenly one
I could never ask for more
Under the sun

My heavenly one, I love you so
Whether I’m awake or fast asleep
You make the sun shine for me, I know
Your love I’ll treasure and keep

It’s only you that I adore
My heavenly one
I could never ask for more
Under the sun
You’re my dream come true
In everything I do
You are my heavenly, heavenly one



Lonely Palm Tree (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2005) (song#3775)

On the island of Blue Hawaii
Stands a lonely palm tree
Next to the cottage of a girl
Who means the world to me
Her name is Moana, and I know that soon
That lovely island girl will marry me
Neath the tropic moon
I know that she’s waiting for me there by the sea
Neath that lonely palm tree

On the island of Blue Hawaii
On the shoreline of a lonely palm tree
Tonight the golden moon will shine
As once again our hearts entwine
Where I carved her name and mine

On the island of Blue Hawaii
On the shoreline of a lonely palm tree
Oh, my Moana, like Blue Hawaii, I’m blue
Like that lonely palm tree, I’m lonely for you

I can hear the tradewinds
Blowing soft in valleys and rills
Birds of paradise sing merrily
In rapture with their lovely trills

Blue Hawaii calls a fond reprise
Telling me that you’re lonely too
Oh, my Moana, please wait patiently
Where the lonely palm tree sighs

On the island of Blue Hawaii
On the shoreline of a lonely palm tree
Tonight the golden moon will shine
As once again our hearts entwine
Where I carved her name and mine

On the island of Blue Hawaii
On the shoreline of a lonely palm tree
Oh, my Moana, like Blue Hawaii, I’m blue
Like that lonely palm tree, I’m lonely for you



Cool Tradewind Breeze (Larry W. Jones 06/06/2005) (song#3776)


Softly sigh, cool tradewind breeze
Flowing through the tall palm trees
The sun sinks low into the west
The island soon will be at rest

I know someone with drowsy eyes
Dreams now of me in her paradise
Whis’pring breeze, your gentle sigh
Sings to my island love a lullaby

Gently sigh, oh whis’pring breeze
Twilight now is surely deep’ning
Dream, dream by peaceful seas
My own true love is surely sleeping

Tropic star, your twinkling light
Shines like diamonds in the night
Tropic moon, from realms above
Shine down upon my own true love

Softly sigh, cool tradewind breeze
Fill her heart with love for me
Kiss away all doubt and fear
Wake her with love when day is near



Summertime In Tahiti (Larry W. Jones 06/06/2005) (song#3777)

Summertime in Tahiti is the best time of the year
Sweet tiare and gardenia perfumes the air so clear
Sittin’ on a kamani log down by the bay, watchin’ paradise
Old dog retrievin’ sticks at play, summertime days are nice

My little grass shack sets my mind at ease
Just sit back and feel the tradewind breeze
I feel the tropic sun shinin’ on my hat and face
It heals anyone tired of the old rat race

Summertime in Tahiti, birds of paradise all around
Best of all, it’s summertime in Tahiti all year ’round

Summertime in Tahiti, it really would be so fine
To get the ahima’a rocks real hot for on kalua pig to dine
Summertime in Tahiti only comes around once a day
Who wants to be inside when you can jaunt outside to play

I’d recommend if you get a chance, better get up and go
You’ll blend in with island romance where the tradewinds blow
See Bora Bora and the other islands with the moon above
Stroll on the sand of a quiet beach and soon you’ll fall in love

Summertime in Tahiti is a time that makes me smile
Where lovers go for the sun and fun in island style



Bay Of Galveston Blues (Larry W. Jones 06/06/2005) (song#3778)

On my way to Mandalay from the Bay of Galveston
Sailin’ on an old tramp freighter into the setting sun
Texas is behind me and my only love’s there too
Already tryin’ to find a way to keep from feelin’
These Bay of Galveston blues

Nights on the ocean are so lonely
Got lots of time to think of yesterday
That girl was mine, I thought mine only
Before I caught this freighter and sailed away

On my way to Mandalay from the Bay of Galveston
Sailin’ on an old tramp freighter into the setting sun
Texas is behind me and my only love’s there too
Already tryin’ to find a way to keep from feelin’
These Bay of Galveston blues

I never was one meant for leavin’
But the blues have sent me out to sea
My only love set my heart grievin’
Galveston is no more home to me

On my way to Mandalay from the Bay of Galveston
Sailin’ on an old tramp freighter into the setting sun
Texas is behind me and my only love’s there too
Already tryin’ to find a way to keep from feelin’
These Bay of Galveston blues



Paradise Is Here (Larry W. Jones 06/11/2005) (song#3779)

Once there were blue skies in paradise
Where all the lovers gathered
Like you and me

Girls and guys sang love’s reprise
To celebrate the weather
Down at Waikiki

Why so soon, a cloud to hide the moon
What we vowed has ended way too soon
Our tune got out of key

Paradise is here
But whatever happened to romancing
Paradise is here
So why isn’t Aloha love advancing
No more yearning
No returning to what was to be
And here’s the reason
There’s no season of love for me

Paradise is here
But tradewind breezes don’t please me
Now I shed a tear
I dread to see the moon appear above me
And here’s the reason
Your love was treason
Paradise is here, my dear



Heartfelt Gentle Way (Larry W. Jones 06/11/2005) (song#3780)

I’m the kind who always sighs
When you stroll by in paradise
And I worry if I don’t see you every day
From the start I’ve always loved you
In my heart felt gentle way

I see the flower in your hair
I wish that I had placed it there
My secret love, I even taste it in the air
So, I’m sentimental, as they say
In my heart felt gentle way

Sometimes I want to say Aloha, but then
I just watch you stroll on by again
Like the girl from Ipanema in Brazil
I’m too shy to let you know I love you still

But if you could read my heart, you’d find
My love for you would be the truest kind
And it won’t be make believe on display
If I ever get to say what’s on my mind
In my heart felt gentle way

Sometimes I want to say Aloha, but then
I just watch you stroll on by again
Like the girl from Ipanema in Brazil
I’m too shy to let you know I love you still

But if you could read my heart, you’d find
My love for you would be the truest kind
And it won’t be make believe on display
If I ever get to say what’s on my mind
In my heart felt gentle way



Come Sunday Mornin’ (Larry W. Jones 06/11/2005) (song#3781)

I’ll see you by the sea come Sunday mornin’
We’ll stroll in Waikiki just like we used to do
We’ll stroll down mem’ry lane, mem’ries to attain
Come Sunday mornin’ hand in hand with you

And when we go strollin’ down Kalakaua Avenue
Everyone will know that I’m in love with you

Yes, I’ll see you by the sea come Sunday mornin’
Sweet Maui chimes will ring
When it’s time to give you a wedding ring
Come Sunday mornin’ when you say you love me too

And when we go strollin’ down Kalakaua Avenue
Everyone will know that I’m in love with you

Yes, I’ll see you by the sea come Sunday mornin’
Sweet Maui chimes will ring
When it’s time to give you a wedding ring
Come Sunday mornin’ when you say you love me too



Beautiful Island Of Love (Larry W. Jones 06/11/2005) (song#3782)

Here’s the way it begins when islands call
You have to see into your heart, above all
Birds of paradise fly in the perfumed air
Tradewinds sigh through palms waving there

It’s a beautiful island
What a beautiful island
It’s a beautiful island of love

The man in the moon goes drifting by
Looks down from above, winks his eye
And all the stars that we see
Well, they all seem to agree
That it’s a beautiful island
It’s a beautiful island of love

It’s a beautiful island
What a beautiful island
It’s a beautiful island of love

And the clouds that in the heavens billow
Say out loud that they will be our pillow
Darling, let’s go strolling hand in hand
Watch the waves breaking on the sand
There’s a beautiful moon up above
It’s a beautiful island of love



If I Were A Bluebird (Larry W. Jones 06/12/2005) (song#3783)

If I were a bluebird, I’d fly to a tropic zone
I’d follow the ship that my true love sails on
At the top of the mast there I’d build my nest
And sing until at last his love I possessed

He once knew this maiden, my smile was his joy
I fell in love with this sailor, a young island boy
I courted him dear, by night star and by day
Now though I fear, my love’s sailed far away

My true love is handsome in every degree
I’d give a ransom to know that he still loves me
I’ll not despise him, though dreams go unfulfilled
For my heart will prize him until it be stilled

If I were a bluebird, I’d fly to a tropic zone
I’d follow the ship that my true love sails on
At the top of the mast there I’d build my nest
And sing until at last his love I possessed

If I were a poet and could handle a pen
I’d write a love letter by the candle to send
I’d write of my sorrow and all of my woes
And beg that tomorrow he return, I suppose

If I were a bluebird, I’d fly to a tropic zone
I’d follow the ship that my true love sails on
At the top of the mast there I’d build my nest
And sing until at last his love I possessed



Springtime In Your Arms (Larry W. Jones 06/12/2005) (song#3784)

This morning it was springtime
Where tradewind breezes blow
A bird of paradise came and told me so

This morning we were sweethearts
We were strolling by the bay
But why did you have to go and sail away
You left me on the seashore, with nowhere to hide
Oh, please return and love restore
With me abide and no more sail on the evening tide

Tonight is like the winter
Though the island still is warm
I need the morning of the springtime in your arms
You left me on the seashore, with nowhere to hide
Oh, please return and love restore
With me abide and no more sail on the evening tide

Tonight is like the winter
Though the island still is warm
I need the morning of the springtime in your arms



Pushed Into Love (Larry W. Jones 06/13/2005) (song#3785)

Well, I thought my heart would never fall
What good would it do me, after all
But that was before I heard the islands call

It happened under the tropic moon above
And when it came to push and shove, I knew
My heart was pushed into love with you

I always thought of love as a game
And that it ought never my heart tame
But that was before I felt your tiki flame

Your Aloha was as soft as a turtle dove
And when it came to push and shove, I knew
My heart was pushed into love with you

Now that you’ve knocked on my heart’s door
The lock is broken for evermore
And for evermore it’s you I’ll adore

It happened under the tropic moon above
And when it came to push and shove, I knew
My heart was pushed into love with you

And when it came to push and shove, I knew
My heart was pushed into love with you



Mind If I Fall In Love With You (Larry W. Jones 06/13/2005) (song#3786)

Here in the tropics, the stars are twinkling
And the only topics that are worth thinking
All have to do with me and you

Up in the heavens, the moon is shining
Down here, my heart for you is pining
Mind if I fall in love with you

This island music is made for dancing
So, let’s be quick with our romancing
A kiss is the next best thing to do

Ever since that dear day that I met you
I’ve made it clear that I would let you
Let me fall in love with you

This island music is made for dancing
So, let’s be quick with our romancing
A kiss is the next best thing to do

Ever since that dear day that I met you
I’ve made it clear that I would let you
Let me fall in love with you

Up in the heavens, the moon is shining
Down here, my heart for you is pining
Mind if I fall in love with you



Kalani (Larry W. Jones 06/13/2005) (song#3787)

You would think you’d met an angel
If you ever met Kalani
Kalani is more than just a dream
She seems everything an angel’s meant to be

There is love light in her eyes
Such a delight, the tradewind sighs
When Kalani strolls down by the sea
Maui chimes toll around the isle in glee

For me, Kalani is the only one
She’s an angel in the tropic sun
It’s divine to feel her hand in mine
And her kisses are the sweetest wine

Everybody falls in love with Kalani
Love for her is of heavenly design
I’m so glad that I crossed the sea
I lost my heart to Kalani just in time

For me, Kalani is the only one
She’s an angel in the tropic sun
It’s divine to feel her hand in mine
And her kisses are the sweetest wine

Everybody falls in love with Kalani
Love for her is of heavenly design
I’m so glad that I crossed the sea
I lost my heart to Kalani just in time



Then I’ll Return My Love (Larry W. Jones 06/13/2005) (song#3788)

If I gave you my love
Would you crave my return
If I gave you my love
Will the tiki fire still burn

And would you be pleased
Or would there be tears
Will love be in the breeze
Of the tradewinds for years

If I gave you my heart
Would your heart be given so true
If I vow that my words I will pay
Will you say that you’ll pay yours too

Promise me that what you desire
Is my love that will always be true
That my heart won’t be burned by the fire
Then I’ll return my love to you

Promise me that what you desire
Is my love that will always be true
That my heart won’t be burned by the fire
Then I’ll return my love to you



I’ll Just Keep On Sailing On (Larry W. Jones 06/13/2005) (song#3789)

If anybody asks me where I’m going
I’ll just say that I don’t know
It may be where tradewinds are a-blowing
Or the arctic in the wind and cold

I’m in pursuit of just a dream
That bears no fruit that I can find
I’m just drifting in the stream
Seems I’m wasting all my time

Sailing on, I’m just sailing on
Sailing on over endless seas
And the reason why I sail alone
Is that I don’t want no company
I once had a love in island sand
But somehow it turned out wrong
Now I’m adrift without a plan
So I’ll just keep on sailing on

Yes, she was my every happiness
A love I thought I’d never find
But now my heart knows emptiness
With the woes upon my mind

Sailing on, I’m just sailing on
Sailing on over endless seas
And the reason why I sail alone
Is that I don’t want no company
I once had a love in island sand
But somehow it turned out wrong
Now I’m adrift without a plan
So I’ll just keep on sailing on

I’ll just keep on sailing on



Tropical Fantasies (Larry W. Jones 06/13/2005) (song#3790)

That tropic shore where we strolled hand in hand
Waikiki beach where we both got our tans
Now a memory like our big plans that started small
Tropical fantasies, that’s all

Diamond Head with the stairs we climbed to the moon
Tropical dreams we fed that ended way too soon
Our island love only came around in June, I recall
Tropical fantasies, that’s all

Only fools believe in isle of love romances
They only leave an ocean full of tears
And I was just a fool for taking chances
With my heart that now is broken, it appears

Well, it’s all over now, and done, as they say
You’ll still be in clover, come what may
I’ll remember you whenever islands call
Tropical fantasies, that’s all
Tropical fantasies, that’s all



Midnight Moon Over Bora Bora (Larry W. Jones 06/14/2005) (song#3791)


There’s a midnight moon over Bora Bora
With a halo ring like Saturn tonight
It makes such a lovely pattern of light
I know I’ve never seen such a

Midnight moon over Bora Bora
Shining down with love for you and me
There’ll be a midnight moon over Bora Bora
On our honeymoon by the sea

Oh, the midnight moon
Midnight moon over Bora Bora
What a heavenly midnight moon

There’s a little cottage in Viatape
Where the sunsets are warm and gold
We’ll put up some curtains, you and me
In the window that faces that old

Midnight moon over Bora Bora
Where you and I will be loving soon
We’ll hold each other tight at night
Under that midnight Bora Bora moon

Oh, the midnight moon
Midnight moon over Bora Bora
What a heavenly midnight moon

Midnight moon over Bora Bora
Where you and I will be loving soon
We’ll hold each other tight at night
Under that midnight Bora Bora moon



Tradewinds And Seven Oceans Wide (Larry W. Jones 06/14/2005) (song#3792)

If you ask me where I reside
Well, my address for you I’d write
Tradewinds and seven oceans wide

The mainland I once called home
Before I felt I had to roam
Tradewinds and seven oceans wide

My true love was by my side
Our future plans were spoken in detail
As a token she promised she’d be my bride
We’d live in a cottage in the vale

One day when I was not around
An outsider came into town
And they said he smiled at my bride to be

She answered him with a look
My true love and future bride he took
Then I knew the outsider in town was me

Ever since then my dreams and I
Drift on the outgoing tide
If you ask me where I reside
Well, my address for you I’d write
Tradewinds and seven oceans wide

If you ask me where I reside
Well, my address for you I’d write
Tradewinds and seven oceans wide
Tradewinds and seven oceans wide



Return To Tropic Skies (Larry W. Jones 06/14/2005) (song#3793)

The sound of waves on the golden sand
Tradewinds whis’pring through palm trees
Transplant me to an enchanted land
Far away in peaceful seas

There on an island of paradise
In the middle of a tropic sea
An isle of dreams under moonlight beams
Calls for my return to tropic skies

I remember a pair of dusky eyes
Of an island maiden so brown
I shouldn’t have strayed, there I should have stayed
On that paradise isle with her around

There on an island of paradise
In the middle of a tropic sea
An isle of dreams under moonlight beams
Calls for my return to tropic skies

An isle of dreams under moonlight beams
Calls for my return to tropic skies



Our Island In The Sea (Larry W. Jones 06/19/2005) (song#3794)

Starlight twinkles in the tropic skies
Fond thoughts ‘mid island scenes
They shine for you here in paradise
And in the nighttime in my dreams

As I stroll alone I’m well aware
I smell the perfume that you wear
Another dream has been awoken
And again my lonely heart is broken

That sad day you said Aloha ‘oe
Was clad in threads of grief for me
Were not you and I to tie the knot
Goodbye would imply that you forgot

As I stroll alone I’m well aware
I smell the perfume that you wear
Another dream has been awoken
And again my lonely heart is broken

Please don’t say Aloha ‘oe
As if goodbye would be the end
Return to our island in the sea
So this broken heart can mend



Wealth In Island Dreams (Larry W. Jones 06/19/2005) (song#3795)

I’ve got a lot of wealth
Here in myself in my dreams
I’ve got a measure of health
A pot full of treasure it seems

I’m never low on my means
Tradewinds blow through island scenes
Each day has new dreams to spend
All I have to do is pretend

Daydreams follow me day and night
Like a swallow at play when in flight

I don’t have a rainbow’s pot of gold
But I’m not worried of growing old
Life isn’t hurried on the island, it seems
I’ve got a lot of wealth in island dreams

I’m never low on my means
Tradewinds blow through island scenes
Each day has new dreams to spend
All I have to do is pretend

Daydreams follow me day and night
Like a swallow at play when in flight

I don’t have a rainbow’s pot of gold
But I’m not worried of growing old
Life isn’t hurried on the island, it seems
I’ve got a lot of wealth in island dreams



Ukulele In The Steel Guitar Band (Larry W. Jones 06/19/2005) (song#3796)

Well, I don’t like those city songs
I know I only like pretty island songs
Played over where the breakers curl
The best island music in the world

Oh, I’m goin’ down to the luau tonight
Find a wahine and dance in the sand
Dance gaily around until daylight
With the ukulele in the steel guitar band

Oh, I’m gonna find a wahine there tonight
Hold her tight under the moon so grand
We’ll do it daily just until we get it right
With the ukulele in the steel guitar band

You can bet your bottom dollar
Don’t need to be a music scholar
To know that the love you feel is grand
With the ukulele in the steel guitar band

Swing your wahine around at the luau
Even if you don’t really know how
Music of love you’ll feel around, understand
With the ukulele in the steel guitar band



Two Dreams (Larry W. Jones 06/19/2005) (song#3797)

Two dreams
One of them is from paradise
Two dreams
One I see in both of your eyes

Blue dreams
The only kind I used to know
True dreams
I now find where breezes blow

I never thought I’d find my dream angel
But sweetheart, here you are
I’ve caught me a fine dream, I can tell
Under moonbeams and a tropic star

Two dreams
Both of them look so divine
One of them is from paradise
One I see in both of your eyes

Two dreams
Both of them look so divine
Two dreams
Sweetheart, both of them are you
A gem I’m happy to call all mine



In That Full Moonlight (Larry W. Jones 06/19/2005) (song#3798)

Darling, when you see at night
Full moonlight shining on this shore
Wait for me in that full moonlight
For I’ll return and leave you never more

Sweetheart, it’s now time to say Aloha ‘oe
Hold my hand and promise to be true
Take my heart and please remember me
Though apart, soon I’ll return to you

Darling, when you see at night
Full moonlight shining on this shore
Wait for me in that full moonlight
For I’ll return and leave you never more

From seven oceans and from desert tents
I’ll bring perfume and pendants on a string
And resplendent among all of my presents
Will be for your hand a lovely wedding ring

Darling, when you see at night
Full moonlight shining on this shore
Wait for me in that full moonlight
For I’ll return and leave you never more



Hawaiian Isles Still Are Calling (Larry W. Jones 06/19/2005) (song#3799)

Hawaiian isles still are calling
From over the sea as twilight falls
With that same sweet melody
As when you were there with me

Beams of moonlight still are falling
Over where Hawaiian islands call
And how I yearn for my return, dear
Just to learn if you’re still there

Hawaiian isles still are calling
From over in the land of Aloha love
And in island sand as I recall
Were smiles that I’m now thinking of

You’re still my only love, my ku’u ipo
For you my lonely heart is ever true
Hawaiian isles still are calling low
Hawaiian isles are calling my heart too



Thirty Eight Hundred (Larry W. Jones 06/19/2005) (song#3800)

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

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

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

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