Duke’s Canoe Club (08/27/2002) (#201)

Waikiki, on the island they’re singing
Playing, all night long ’til day’s peeping
Duke’s Canoe Club, what fabulous swinging

I hear an island ukelele
That they play a lot in Duke’s Canoe Club
Sounds like something is brewing
They dance a lot in Duke’s Canoe Club
I think I’ll just walk right in
So I can dance with them in Duke’s Canoe Club

Got a shock, didn’t know I couldn’t dance there
But it’s a traffic jam on the dance floor
What in the thunder’s happening in there

Saw people knee deep
Behind a bamboo curtain in Duke’s Canoe Club
I said I only meant to dance there
Security staff wouldn’t let me dance in Duke’s Canoe Club
I just want to join the party in Duke’s Canoe Club

Waikiki, on the island they’re singing
Playing, all night long ’til day’s peeping
Duke’s Canoe Club, what fabulous swinging
Duke’s Canoe Club, what fabulous swinging
Canoe Club!



Mysterious (08/27/2002) (#202)

Someday I would like to know
In time maybe I’ll discover
Mysterious island forces that glow
When lover meets island lover

It’s like an orchestra band
When you touch, a bell jingles
You have the upper hand
When together our kiss mingles

What’s there to refine
The mysterious forces that flow
No one can really define
What makes love glow

As long as you love me, who cares
If the mountains fall down
As long as you love me, I’m there
To make sure love’s around

Someday I would like to know
In time maybe I’ll discover
Mysterious island forces that glow
When lover meets island lover



Gentle Hearts (08/27/2002) (#203)

Two gentle hearts on a paradise island
Just two in a world of their own
Gentle hearts don’t need to think twice of love
Gentle hearts are never alone

Loving words are seldom misplaced
The taste of love is never a waste
When self is not there, two can then share
Gentle hearts will never despair

Gentle hearts, words they will share
Gentle hearts, love they will wear
Islands of dreams with love to be found
Will always have beams of love’s moon around

Two gentle hearts on a paradise island
Just two in a world of their own
Gentle hearts don’t need to think twice of love
Gentle hearts are never alone
Just two in a world of their own
Gentle hearts are never alone


Dream A Dream For You (08/27/2002) (#204)

If I could dream a dream for you
You would never be alone or blue
I would ask the sun to come and shine
Love in your heart to make you mine

I would ask the moon to spread its glow
Over all the words of love I know
So I could think of what to say
To make you my love for ever and a day

I would ask the island man for rain
Then I would ask the sun to shine again
A rainbow I would bring with other pretty things
To be a crown upon a pretty island queen

If I could dream your dream for you
I would take all cares from you
I would ask the stars to guide you through
Straight to my arms awaiting just for you

If I could dream a dream for you
You would never be alone or blue
If I could dream a dream for you


Angels Don’t Have To Fly (08/27/2002) (#205)

This must be the right island
And it sure is the right space
Your face is like an angel, there’s no disguise
I like it here in this place where angels don’t have to fly

It sounds like the right song played to the island tune
When you smile I long for the full phase of the moon
This must be the right island and it sure is the right space
I like to see the angel smile on your lovely face

If you’re an angel on this island, please don’t disappear
I will try every angle to see that you are near
You’re so lovely that I don’t even have to try
To picture you in paradise where angels don’t have to fly

When you smile I long for the full phase of the moon
Your face is like an angel, there’s no disguise
It sounds like the right song played to the island tune
I like it here in this place where angels don’t have to fly
I like it here where angels don’t have to fly


Saying Aloha (08/28/2002) (#206)

Aloha is what you say to say hello
Aloha is what you say to say goodbye
And it’s also what I say to say I love you
And I like the way you say Aloha too

Hello is just a nice way of greeting
Goodbye means maybe I’ll see you again
But Aloha conveys so many feelings
That I have for you I can’t explain

I would walk an island mile just to see you smile
Just to say Aloha once again
If I have to say goodby, Aloha I will say
To make sure I mean to see you another day

Aloha is what you say to say hello
Aloha is what you say to say goodbye
And it’s also what I say to say I love you
And I like the way you say Aloha too
It’s what I say to say I love you
And I like the way you say Aloha too


Choose Love (08/28/2002) (#207)

You can choose love if you want to
But you can lose love if you abuse it
If you want to win her love above all else
Don’t just use love then see love quit

You don’t have to be blamed or ashamed
Just treat her nice, not like a game
Say Aloha, not just once in awhile
If you try you might even do it with style

If tears are in line, little words come to mind
Like I love you and you’ll always be mine
So, don’t say goodbye, you’ll see by and by
That love will win if you just give it a try

Don’t rush, linger awhile to see if she smiles
You might be amazed by love’s gentle gaze
It’s worth every cost to cover life’s miles
Love can’t be bought, it just always pays

Don’t rush, linger awhile to see if she smiles
You might be amazed by love’s gentle gaze
Say Aloha, not just once in awhile
If you try you might even do it with style
Choose love and show it with style


An Island (08/28/2002) (#208)

If I gave you an island in the ocean
I would also bring tradewinds for two
To flow through the palm trees love’s potion
Blow kisses of love from me to you

If I gave you an island in the ocean
There would be a rainbow or two
Painting I love you, I have a notion
That I would love you more than I do

If I gave you an island in the ocean
I could wish for dreams to come true
Close my eyes and wish for a million
Years so I could just say I love you

If I gave you an island in the ocean
It would last forever in the sea
Anchored by love and devotion
That our love holds for you and me

If I gave you an island in the ocean
There would be a rainbow or two
If I gave you an island in the ocean
I could wish for dreams to come true


New Love In Old Lahaina Town (08/28/2002) (#209)

The night you gave your heart to me
Was a night of major renown
I recall that when you said you loved me
It was brand new love in old Lahaina town

The moon had cast its magic spell
I had marked it on the calendar before
When guitars started playing, I could tell
Love came walking through the door

The dances then were romances when
I held you in my arms from six ’til ten
I think my heart was jumping up and down
It was brand new love in old Lahaina town

Well, I lost my heart but I found true love
That’s the night I’m still dreaming of
I’m glad the moon and stars hung around
It was brand new love in old Lahaina town

The night you gave your heart to me
Was a night of major renown
I recall that when you said you loved me
It was brand new love in old Lahaina town
It was brand new love in old Lahaina town


Islander Man (08/28/2002) (#210)

I’m just a mainlander man with a mainlander plan
I want an isle that can’t be beat and a girl just as sweet
I’m just a mainlander man, but on the other hand
I want an island girl to play with in the island sand

What I really mainly want, and I won’t be nonchalant
Is an island version of a mainland debutante
For that girl I know I want to take an airplane jaunt
Mainly to Hawaii to find that island girl I want

I want a cottage by the beach and a girl who can teach
Me how to be an island gentleman, man, man
I’m just a mainlander man with a mainlander plan
I want an island girl to play with in the island sand

What I really mainly want, and I won’t be nonchalant
Is an island version of a mainland debutante
For that girl I know I want to take an airplane jaunt
Mainly to Hawaii to find that island girl I want

I’m just a mainlander man with a mainlander plan
I want an isle that can’t be beat and a girl just as sweet
I’m just a mainlander man, but on the other hand
I want an island girl to play with in the island sand
I want to be an islander man


Tradewinds A-Breezing (08/28/2002) (#211)

In the quiet of the evening
When the tradewinds come a-breezing
I’ll greet you right here with a song

When the pineapple fields are turning
My heart for you is burning
Here by my side is where you belong

When the pineapple fields are turning
My arms for you are yearning
I dream about you all day long

When the sunset skies with fire designing
When the rainbows are a-shining
You look lovely in your sarong

When the bay has moonlit beams applying
When the lovebirds are a-sighing
My love for you is strong

In the quiet of the evening
When the tradewinds come a-breezing
I’ll greet you right here with a song

In the quiet of the evening
With the tropic islands pleasing
I’ll marry you right here before too long

In the quiet of the evening
With the tropic islands pleasing
I’ll marry you right here before too long


Island Schools (08/28/2002) ( #212)

Falling in love was just for fools
But fools didn’t go to island schools
I think I just broke all the rules
I guess you know that I’m in love with you

My buddies just told me to concentrate
On being cool and keeping lots of dates
But I’m just not good at playing it cool
I guess you know that I’m in love with you

I went body surfing with a bunch of friends
Lots of wahinis were surfing too
But somebody stole my heart, it was you
I guess you know that I’m in love with you

I thought I didn’t have to play by the rules
But now I’m back in island school
The lessons are easy and I see the light
We’ll do it over and over ’til I get it right

Falling in love was just for fools
But fools didn’t go to island schools
I think I just broke all the rules
I guess you know that I’m in love with you
I guess you know that I’m in love with you


Waikiki At Night (08/28/2002) (#213)

Waikiki at night is a magical sight
There’s love around and in the air
I’ve even seen the bay of blue turn gold
When the big yellow moon its beams unfold

Strolling on the sidewalk or in the sand
You can feel romance from the guitar bands
Down by the shorebird bistro bar
Lovers are pointing out their favorite star

With the moon on the bay and the stars above
Waikiki at night is just made for love
Everybody loves the place when the day is light
But lovers everywhere love Waikiki at night

Waikiki at night is a magical sight
There’s love around and in the air
Strolling on the sidewalk or in the sand
You can feel romance from the guitar bands

I’ve even seen the bay of blue turn gold
When the big yellow moon its beams unfold
Everybody loves the place when the day is light
But lovers everywhere love Waikiki at night
Lovers love Waikiki at night


Islands And Sunshine (08/28/2002) (#214)

Islands and sunshine, islands and sunshine
Fit together like a hand in a glove
Islands and sunshine complement each other
Both are made for lovers in love

Islands and moonshine, islands and moonshine
No, not that kind, but it’s meant to instill
Hearts with love as they wish on stars above
Both are made for lovers in love

Just try to paint an island without the sun
Maybe you can do it, but where’s the fun
Where do you think is sunny side of the street
Islands and sunshine really can’t be beat

Islands and sunshine, islands and sunshine
You can’t seperate ’em, might as well make ’em
Part of your vacation come what may
Hawaii is the island and sunshine will make your day

You can’t seperate ’em, might as well make ’em
Part of your vacation come what may
Hawaii is the island and sunshine will make your day


One Little Island (08/28/2002) (#215)

One little island can change your paces
Replacing everything you know
Shaking hands and smiling faces
Of people you don’t even know

It will change the way you live, you can’t deny
One little island can make your cares all fly
Island breezes will make the Summer fly away
But island love will always and forever stay

One night can be an island lover’s dream
Like dreamsicles and strawberry ice cream
When I whisper you name, it’s not the same
It’s better by far, and one little island is to blame

Days are lazy, life slows down to a crazy crawl
Every little thing has changed but that’s not all
Every time I hold you in my arms, I recall
One little island, one little island, Hawaii called

Days are lazy, life slows down to a crazy crawl
Every little thing has changed but that’s not all
Every time I hold you in my arms, I recall
One little island, one little island, Hawaii called


A Fantasy Life (08/28/2002) (#216)

I’ve been to the IMAX in Waikiki
Been to the Polenesian hula show
The best time ever was with you and me
Kissing under the stars in the moonlight glow

I’ve been to the movies, been to a dance
Been to the Shorebird frying fish on the grill
But I still remember the best romance
Was being with you in the moonlight still

Internet radio sounds fine with Aloha Joe
Slack key guitars and ukuleles on the radio
There’s something more exciting than rodeo
Holding hands with you in the moonlight show

Some live for just the moment or just the day
But I live for every minute I can be with you
April showers bring flowers in the month of May
May I bring you love the whole year through

What a lovely way to spend the rest of your time
One lovely island and a beautiful wife
Living on love while working nine to five
It’s not fantasy island, it’s just a fantasy life
It’s not fantasy island, it’s just a fantasy life


Aisle Number Seven (08/28/2002) (#217)

My pretty island baby called me at eleven
Said maybe we could meet at the grocery store
I knew just where to find her, aisle number seven
Angel cake and strawberry desert delight heaven

My pretty island baby called me on the phone
Asked if I could come a-calling all alone
I told her I would be there round about seven
Angel cake and strawberry desert delight heaven

My pretty island baby said that just maybe
We’ll discuss where will our wedding place be
Hawaii is delightful, July is month number seven
Angel cake and strawberry desert delight heaven

My pretty island baby called me at eleven
Said maybe we could meet at the grocery store
I knew just where to find her, aisle number seven
Angel cake and strawberry desert delight heaven
I knew just where to find her, aisle number seven
Angel cake and strawberry desert delight heaven


That Hawaiian Magic Spell (08/29/2002) (#218)

You’ve got that Hawaiian magic spell
I’m a lion cub as in tragic surrender fell
To the gentle ring of your heart’s tender bell
That Hawaiian magic spell

When I fell into your loving arms
I can’t begin to tell of all your charms
A violin played while love notes fell
That Hawaiian magic spell

I have a feeling that love is dealing
A queen of island hearts to mine that’s reeling
A lovely work of art in this island dwells
That Hawaiian magic spell

When we go strolling in the moonlight still
I feel like holding the month of June until
I can forever hold you in my arms as well
That Hawaiian magic spell

You’ve got that Hawaiian magic spell
A lovely work of art in this island dwells
A violin played while love notes fell
That Hawaiian magic spell
That Hawaiian magic spell


Climb A Rainbow (08/29/2002) (#219)

When you climb a Hawaiian rainbow
You can see the Mauna Kea snows
When you climb upon a rainbow
You can see love wherever it goes

You can see the tradewinds
Swaying palm trees down below
It’s a whole new world of beauty
When you climb a Hawaiian rainbow

You can hear the music of steele guitars
See the notes of love float to the stars
Watch lovers stroll along the bay down below
When you climb a Hawaiian rainbow

Makes no matter the time or season
You don’t even need to have a reason
Just follow you dreams to a new plateau
When you climb a Hawaiian rainbow

When you climb a Hawaiian rainbow
You can see the Mauna Kea snows
You can hear the music of steele guitars
See the notes of love float to the stars

Makes no matter the time or season
You don’t even need to have a reason
Just follow you dreams to a new plateau
When you climb a Hawaiian rainbow

Like The Dreams (08/29/2002) (#221)

Like the night, like the dreams
Are the polynesian eyes of my Leilani
Like the blooms in the Spring
Is my Leilani

Her loving words, her winsome glance
No wonder I feel her romance
My heart is imprisioned for all to see
By my Leilani

Ever since she came into my life
From that moment, life was new
My dreams I imbue to the highest degree
To my Leilani

I’m happier than most, I can only boast
About this wonderful love I’ve found
She’s a star to me, belongs on a marquee
She’s my Leilani

Like the night, like the dreams
Are the polynesian eyes of my Leilani
My dreams I imbue to the highest degree
To my Leilani
Leilani, Leilani, my Leilani


My Recipe For Love (08/29/2002) (#222)

My world has changed like something prearranged
A chameleon can’t change colors as fast as that
My head is in the clouds, my feet are there too
Since I fell in love with you

My cottage for two will be a palace anew
Since you said you would say “I do”
So what if it’s a two room flat
It already feels like a paradise for two

I used to despair when love wasn’t there
But now I don’t mind, I’m happy you’re mine
This once lonely island now pleases me
We’ll live and love in our cottage by the sea

My world has changed, I’m wide awake
I read the recipe for a wedding cake
Stir and sift and sugar and icing for two
My world is sweet and I’m in love with you

My world has changed like something prearranged
A chameleon can’t change colors as fast as that
My head is in the clouds, my feet are there too
Since I fell in love with you
You’re my recipe for love


Beautiful You (08/29/2002) (#223)

A tuberose and a moonlight glow
Reminds me of beautiful you
My heart will repose as my thought goes
To beautiful memories of beautiful you

The month of June will surely disclose
The dreams that soon will be like fresh dew
A tuberose and a moonlight glow
Reminds me of beautiful you

A tuberose and a moonlight glow
The month of June will surely disclose
The dreams that soon will be like fresh dew
And dream beautiful dreams of beautiful you

A tuberose and a moonlight glow
Can renew the love of long ago
This lovely paradise of Hawaii blue
Reminds me of beautiful you
This lovely paradise of Hawaii blue
Reminds me of beautiful you


Honolulu Rose, My Love (08/29/2002) (#224

My Honolulu rose, now don’t you cry
I’ll come sailing back on a balmy day
Until then I hate to say goodby
Be sure to wait for me while I’m away

Dry your polynesian eyes and smile for me
Whether it be Tahitian or Indonesian destiny
My ship will return guided by stars above
Until then, Aloha from my heart, my love

My Honolulu rose, now don’t you cry
Dry your polynesian eyes and smile for me
I’ll come sailing back on a balmy day
Be sure to wait for me while I’m away

Whether it be Tahitian or Indonesian destiny
My Honolulu rose, keep your love for me
My ship will return guided by stars above
Until then, Aloha from my heart, my love
You are my Honolulu rose, my rose, my love


Someone Blue (08/29/2002) (#225)

In my conversation I speak of one location
Somewhere out in the ocean blue
Words I am not mincing, I just want to be kissing
Someone out in the ocean blue

I was in Hawaii, seems like too long ago
I met this girl in Hawaii at a hula show
She swayed while guitars played, blew kisses fine
They flew right past me, broke a heart I know was mine

I was in Hawaii, and I don’t have to say it twice
I left that hula girl along with my broken heart in paradise
I’m not trying to be cute, just being very true
I miss that girl out in the ocean blue

In my conversation I speak of one location
Somewhere out in the ocean blue
Words I am not mincing, I just want to be kissing
Someone out in the ocean blue

She swayed while guitars played, blew kisses fine
They flew right past me, broke a heart I know was mine
I’m not trying to be cute, just being very true
I miss that girl out in the ocean blue
Someone out in the ocean blue


Golden Rainbows (08/29/2002) (#226)

Golden rainbows
In the blue skies
Painted by the sun
Smiling on the isles

Your smile is like those
Golden rainbows
In the blue skies
Painted by the sun
Smiling on the isles

My heart loves you more than those
Golden rainbows
In the blue skies
Painted by the sun
Smiling on the isles

I know you’ll always remind me of those
Golden rainbows painted by the sun
In the blue skies, smiling on the isles
When your heart and mine will be as one

I know you’ll always remind me of those
Golden rainbows painted by the sun
In the blue skies, smiling on the isles
When your heart and mine will be as one


A Rose In Waikiki (08/29/2002) (#227)

Waiting by the palm trees, looking out to sea
The lonely girl with the polynesian eyes
Watching with hopeful heart and misty eyes
For sails returning after love’s goodbyes

A song of love drifts through her mind
Like tradewinds through the palms above
This song for her will just remind
Of the last island song of love

The sun is shining in Waikiki
Chasing away the misty dew
Roses are growing in Waikiki
But none as pretty a rose as you

Roses may die beneath a banyan tree
And the ocean has kept us apart
But one rose will never die in Waikiki
The rose of the lovely girl that’s in my heart

Roses may die beneath a banyan tree
And the ocean has kept us apart
But one rose will never die in Waikiki
The rose of the lovely girl that’s in my heart


Gabby Pahinui Band (08/29/2002) (#228)

Don’t stop the ukulele pickin’ man
Let me hear some Gabby Pahinui band
I got a happy heart on this island and
I wanna hear some Pahinui slack key hand

I don’t want no acid rock or rap crap throng
I came to Hawaii to hear real Hawaiian songs
So just play the slack key and ukuleles strong
I wanna hear an old Gabby Pahinui song

Before you crank up that wailin’ amplifier
Just remember that I don’t go along
With music for cowboys crying in their beer
Play some Gabby Pahinui Hawaiian cheer

There’s no island music on the mainland
That’s why I’m here barefootin’ in the sand
Got my island shirt on and I have to demand
Play some Pahinui with the Gabby Pahinui band

I got a happy heart on this island and
I wanna hear some Pahinui slack key hand
Got my island shirt on and I have to demand
Play some Pahinui with the Gabby Pahinui band
Play some Pahinui with the Gabby Pahinui band


Someday (08/29/2002) (#229)

Remember sunlit islands whenever you feel blue
Thinking back to happy times isn’t hard to do
You and I were happy there, without a care
The weather fit our clothes, a flower in your hair

Remember dreaming dreams that all came true
We were glad to not be sad in our Hawaii blue
The little things like strolling hand in hand
Are treasures time can’t erase of sun and sand

The love we shared was beyond compare
On those sunlit islands we called our own
So remember back and you’ll be back there
Some day we’ll call Hawaii our island home

Remember all those steele guitar melodies
Songs of love for lovers like you and me
Soon will come the time to make our move
We’ll be back again in our island groove

Remember all those steele guitar melodies
Songs of love for lovers like you and me
So remember back and you’ll be back there
Some day we’ll call Hawaii our island home


Paper Cup Crown (08/29/2002) (#230)

Back when I was just growing up
I was a king and my crown a paper cup
Would I grow rich in my island town
Daddy said, son, life might let you down

But an island boy you will always be
Life is not the same beyond the blue sea
You might be a king with money to be
But you will return to your island, your sea

I left the island behind and I fell in love
My sweetheart asked what I often thought of
For what were eyes sad and heart feeling blue
The only answer I knew was nothing new

I had to get back to my island, you see
There I was king and my crown a paper cup
Here I am rich but my heart is down
I was truly rich back in my island town

The years have passed in our island home
My son asked me one day when we were alone
Would he grow rich in his island town
I set him on my knee and to him I smiled down

Son, you are a king and your crown a paper cup
Remember these words when you grow up
Life is not the same beyond the blue sea
And son, an island boy you will always be


Islands, Islands, Islands (08/29/2002) (#231)

Rub some more sunscreen on my face and hands
We’re in the islands, islands, islands
We’ll laugh and love, build castles in the sand
Here in the islands, islands, islands

Let me kiss you lips and hold your hand
We’re in the islands, islands, islands
Kissing you is just obeying islands’ command
Here in the islands, islands, islands

Let’s dance away ’til light of day
Islands are for dancing, dancing, dancing
Loving you is here to stay
Islands are for dancing and romancing

Rub some more sunscreen on my face and hands
We’ll laugh and love, build castles in the sand
Loving you is just obeying islands’ command
We’re in the islands, islands, islands
Islands, islands, islands


Your Dream And Mine (08/30/2002) (#232)

When you see the moonbeams on the bay
Ask that moon man what he has to say
He might give you dreams to make your day
So pick a dream, maybe you will hear her say

Dream, my island man when you’re blue
Dream, and I will dream about you too
Count the stars above, and when you’re through
Maybe your dream and mine will come true

Don’t dwell on memories of things in the past
Sad times and bad times won’t forever last
So here she is, a dream out of the blue
Love is no longer just a dream for you

When you see the moonbeams on the bay
Ask that moon man what he has to say
He might give you dreams to make your day
So pick a dream, maybe you will hear her say

Dream, my island man when you’re blue
Dream, and I will dream about you too
Count the stars above, and when you’re through
Maybe your dream and mine will come true
Your dream and mine will come true


Call To Me (08/30/2002) (#233)

Islands, call to me
My lovely Leilani, I’m so blue
Call to me, call to me
Call, my darling and I’ll come to you

Islands, call to me
My lovely Leilani, I’m so lonely
Call to me, call to me
Call, my darling Leilani from across the sea

My sweetheart, I think of you only
Call to me and I’ll never be lonely
Call to me, call to me
Please give me again a place in your heart

My lovely Leilani, I’m so lonely
Call, my darling and I’ll come to you
Call to me, call to me
Please give me again a place in your heart


Blue Oceans (08/30/2002) (#234)

Blue oceans, islands love to smile
You’re calling me to you, come what may
Old deep ocean, you stir my emotions
Your islands are calling, I’m coming your way

True lovers, gone to paradise
Islands have so much love to share
We’ll love under that old moon above
Deep as the ocean, two hearts in love
Blue oceans, islands and me

Blue oceans, islands love to smile
You’re calling me to you, come what may
Old deep ocean, you stir my emotions
Your islands are calling, I’m coming your way

True lovers, gone to paradise
Islands have so much love to share
We’ll love under that old moon above
Deep as the ocean, two hearts in love
Blue oceans, islands and me


Harbor Of Heartbreak (08/30/2002) (#235)

I can no longer see those harbor lights
The light of love doesn’t shine for me
I remember those lovely island nights
But now my ship is lost on love’s sea

Harbor of heartbreak
You harbor my memories and loneliness
Harbor of heartbreak
You harbor dreams that will never come true

Harbor of heartbreak
Love is lost in your watery deep
Memories of her each moment I’m awake
Please give me back a love I can keep

Will I ever see again her loveliness
Harbor of heartbreak
When will I feel her lips against mine to caress
I’m lost on this sea of mistakes

I can no longer see those harbor lights
The light of love doesn’t shine for me
I remember those lovely island nights
But now my ship is lost on love’s sea

Harbor of heartbreak
You harbor my memories and loneliness
Harbor of heartbreak
You harbor dreams that will never come true
Harbor of heartbreak, you’re breaking my heart in two


Isle Of Dreams (08/30/2002) (#236)

Sail away with me, my darling
To the isle, isle of dreams
Sail away with me to happiness
My heart will show that only you I esteem

Sail away with me to the isle of dreams

I remember that night when we first kissed
I knew right then and there what I had missed
You will know just how real it seems
When we sail away to the isle of dreams

Sail away with me to the isle of dreams

Sail away with me to happiness
I remember that night when we first kissed
I knew right then and there what I had missed
Sail away with me, my darling
To the isle, isle of dreams


That June (08/30/2002) (#237)

The day faded softly into a curtain of velvet
Remember in June under the harbor moon
Your heart and mine sighed when we met
That June under the harbor moon

I remember your words like sweet cream
The stars complemented the moon
Time melted away on the night dreams
That June under the harbor moon

The day faded softly into a curtain of velvet
Your heart and mine sighed when we met
Remember in June under the harbor moon
That June when we first met

I remember your words like sweet cream
The stars complemented the moon
Time melted away on the night dreams
That June under the harbor moon
That June under the harbor moon


Beauty Of Your Smile (08/31/2002) (#238)

When I have gone away
The beauty of you smile will stay
Within all the dreams I own
Until that day when to your love I return

I will see you in my mind
And feel you always in my heart
Your gentle smile so kind
Will warm my soul while we’re apart

Your lovely charm is everything to me
A gleam of love in a tropic isle
Our day will come and again I will see
The beauty of your smile

When I see the stars above so high
Heaven wonders at such beauty, and so do I
Your lovely face is of classic style
As is the beauty of your smile

Your lovely charm is everything to me
A gleam of love in a tropic isle
Our day will come and again I will see
The beauty of your smile
The beauty of your smile


Island Angel Girl (09/01/2002) (#239)

Your voice is like an island angel’s voice
The way you walk isn’t just a sailor’s choice
Even tradwinds like to give your hair a whirl
I find, you’re an angel island girl

Guys say you’re an angel in disguise
Didn’t know angels had polynesian eyes
You’re smile is a flower lei made of pearls
I find, you’re an angel island girl

Lovely face, you look so sweet
My heart jumped like an ejection seat
Well tanned feet, they’re so neat
I think you really can’t be beat

Does an angel look like a pastry cook
Well, your look answered my prayer book
Even tradwinds like to give your hair a whirl
I find, you’re an angel island girl

Guys say you’re an angel in disguise
Didn’t know angels had polynesian eyes
You’re smile is a flower lei made of pearls
I find, you’re an angel island girl

Now I find my island love is the real McCoy
My island angel said I’m her island boy


Same Old Island Flame (09/02/2002) (#240)

Because I love you so
I want to see you more
When I think of your sweet name
Here comes that same old island flame

Will she stall, or will I fall
A telephone call is so hard to make
The clock on my lonesome wall
Says its time for my heart to break

I love her so, but does she love me
Island love should be so easy to see
Is it wrong or is it right
Will I still see her this tropic night

Because I love you so
I want to see you more
When I think of your sweet name
Here comes that same old island flame

There’s the phone and I can’t believe
Her sweet voice on this island summer eve
The clock on my lonesome wall
Says it’s not time for heartbreak afterall

You must have known I love you so
And you say you want to see me more
Every time I whisper your sweet name
Here comes that same old island flame
Every time I whisper your sweet name
Here comes that same old island flame


Dream Of Lovely You (09/02/2002) (#241)

Island beauty fast asleep
You must be counting dreams instead of sheep
I’ll dream the same as you
That same old dream of lovely you

I hold your hand while guitars play
We dance and love the night away
But at the waking of the dawn
I find that I am here alone

Island beauty fast asleep
Will dreams of you come true for me
It seems you’re always on my mind
Dreams of you are the sweetest kind

I kiss your lips and smell your perfume
Your flower lei is soft as the month of June
But at the waking of the dawn
I find that I am here alone

Island beauty fast asleep
Time will come when love runs deep
The same as mine at every dawn
And I won’t find myself alone

Island beauty fast asleep
Will dreams of you come true for me
Until then I’ll dream the same as you
That same old dream of lovely you
That same old dream of lovely you


Tradewinds Of Love (09/02/2002) (#242)

I can see the danger in this enchanting night
Just that winsome look in your fleeting glance
It feels like island winds are blowing right
For island hearts who want to take love’s chance

Your eyes have never been more exciting
These arms of mine are open and inviting
There must be island dreams coming true
Tradewinds of love are softly calling me to you

We were lonely strangers just a time ago
But island love quickly set hearts aglow
Something in the tropic wind draws love that’s true
Something in my heart knows that I love you

It feels like island winds are blowing right
It feels like island winds are blowing right
Something in the tropic wind draws love that’s true
Something in my heart knows that I love you

We were lonely strangers just a time ago
But island love quickly set hearts aglow
There must be island dreams coming true
Tradewinds of love are softly calling me to you
There must be island dreams coming true
Tradewinds of love are softly calling me to you


My New Dream (09/02/2002) (#243)

I ask myself if this dream is only new
Can such a romance be really true
Something inside always replys
A heart cannot island love deny

I found an island girl whose love is kind
Love like ours just cannot be blind
With two hearts aflame you realize
The call of love cannot be denied

I ask myself if this dream is only new
Can such a romance be really true
I found an island girl whose love is kind
Love like ours just cannot be blind

With two hearts aflame you realize
A heart cannot island love deny
Dreams can go but some may stay
My new dream of you won’t fade away

I ask myself if this dream is only new
Can such a romance be really true
Dreams can go but some may stay
My new dream of you won’t fade away

Somebody Longs For You (09/02/2002) (#244)

Somebody longs for you tonight
Who could let such a lady go
I’m just glad it’s not my plight
And I don’t really want to know

How long I wished for loving arms
That was yesterday without your charms
Somebody longs for you tonight
But you fell into my empty arms

Somebody longs for you tonight
Who could let such a lady go
His moon must be just a neon light
Not this tropic moon that makes love grow

Somebody belongs to you tonight
Lovely stars shine in an angel’s eyes
As I feel your heart, I realize
To belong to you is my delight

How long I wished for loving arms
That was yesterday without your charms
Somebody belongs to you tonight
To belong to you is my delight
To belong to you is my delight


Bora Bora Love (09/02/2002) (#245)

Bora Bora, island dream and you
Oh, how I miss your sands of gold
How I long to see your bay of blue
And how I miss you, island girl to hold

I miss your palms in breezes swaying
I hear what my heart is ever saying
Return to that Bora Bora bay of blue
My heart said I’m still missing you

Bora Bora, island placed on coral strands
Perfect island always in the stream of time
I must return to those golden sands
My island love waits there for mine

Time I have wasted with only tears
My heart is empty ’til my love appears
To you I must return, love to convey
With my Bora Bora love I’ll ever stay
With my Bora Bora love I’ll ever stay


Old Kauai Isle (09/02/2002) (#246)

There on old Kauai isle
The blue seas will you beguile
Your love can even stay
While cares of life drift away

Over on old Kauai isle
Island flowers grow by the mile
It’s enough to make your wish come true
When the moon drips gold on seas of blue

Here on old Kauai isle
Life is not like rank and file
The balmy night breeze off the sea
Brings again your sweet love to me

With you here on old Kauai isle
Love is new under stars that smile
My love for you will always be the gentle style
Right here with you on old Kauai isle
Right here with you on old Kauai isle


Aloha Means Island Friend (09/03/2002) (#247)

Tropic isles are calling me again
Out where Aloha means island friend
Hawaii calls from way across the sea
Where tradewinds sway the graceful trees

Hear the melody of guitar harmonies
Feel the handshake of love from peaceful seas
When day ends and evening falls
Polynesian nights become a lover’s call

The foamy surf pounds the reef at night
Roaming hearts return to island relief delights
Hawaii calls from way across the sea
Where tradewinds sway the graceful trees

See sweethearts strolling hand in hand
At Waikiki along the soft brown sand
Follow your dream of island paradise
In tropic isles of gleaming deep blue skies

Hawaii calls from way across the sea
Where tradewinds sway the graceful trees
Tropic isles are calling me again
Out where Aloha means island friend
Out where Aloha means island friend


Islands Blessed (09/03/2002) (#248)

Feel the tradewinds wafting slow
Over sea and sand where I must go
To sunfilled skies and moonlit nights
To islands blessed with all delights

Mountains, valleys and blue-green seas
These memories replay love to me
Of a darling girl in peacock blue
The lovely curl of hula arms I knew

Moonlight beams have settled on the sea
Golden are the sands of familiar Waikiki
My darling held me close to say goodby
I must return again to her and tropic skies

Hear the guitars under banyan trees
Playing softly love’s haunting melodies
Here you can sense some hidden scheme
Blue Hawaii gives to all a lover’s dream

Feel the tradewinds wafting slow
Over sea and sand where I must go
To sunfilled skies and moonlit nights
To islands blessed with all delights
Hawaii is blessed with all delights


Kapono (09/03/2002) (#249)

Out in the islands sails Kapono
When the full moon is bright he will show
Throughout the islands they all know
No one can match Hawaiian Kapono

Kapono, bold island man
Kapono, chief warrior son
Who dare try to catch this shadow of woe
No one can match Hawaiian Kapono

A bold man, an island warrior his trade
On his club the letter K he has made
On his canoe is carved the same letter bold
No one can match this warrior Kapono

Kapono, bold island man
Kapono, chief warrior son
Who dare try to catch this shadow of woe
No one can match Hawaiian Kapono

His war canoe arrives silent in the night
Island enemies despair at his sight
A hero of all the island weak
Of this warrior, in awe they bespeak

Kapono, bold island man
Kapono, chief warrior son
Who dare try to catch this shadow of woe
No one can match Hawaiian Kapono
No one can match Hawaiian Kapono


Meant To Be With You (09/03/2002) (#250)

How long will I be yours
Well, that’s an old lover’s story
How long will stars endure
How long will be their glory

How long will my love for you ring
How long will love be king
Til birds forget how to sing
Til then, you’re my everything

How long will I be enraptured by your beauty
Until daybreak fails to see the morning glory
Til storybooks cease relating lover’s duty
Til then I will write to you my love story

I am yours throughout every year
I will sing aloud so all the islands hear
My love for you will always be true
My love, I was meant to be with you

I am yours throughout every year
I will sing aloud so all the islands hear
My love for you will always be true
My love, I was meant to be with you


You Are My Song (09/03/2002) (#251)

There’s a reason why you belong in my heart
Yesterday, still now and forever
Love still has that sound as at the very start
I’m sure this love could leave me never

Remember when love found us under those stars
They played our song with the steele guitars
We vowed our love from the heart and it’s true
My love and my heart will remain just for you

I remember when first I saw your lovely eyes
Yours met mine under Hawaii’s starlit skies
Those guitars are still playing that lovely song
Now you are my song and in my heart you belong

There’s a reason why you belong in my heart
Love still has that sound as at the very start
Those guitars are still playing that lovely song
Now you are my song and in my heart you belong
You are my song and in my heart you belong


My Loves Serenade (09/03/2002) (#252)

This island life has a big difference made
It’s the same old twenty four hours
But now they have sunshine and flowers
Songs I hear now are for your serenade

Yesterdays were blue and flooded with tears
Tomorrows with you mean tropical years
This island life has a big difference made
Since you are my song, my love’s serenade

Skies may be stormy but rainbows never bore me
Nights are no more lonely, your love I treasure only
This island life has a big difference made
Since you are my song, my love’s serenade

A menu for love is what you are made of
A gourmet design of island beauty refined
What a difference this lovely island designed
What a wonderful love like perfect sweet wine

Yesterdays were blue and flooded with tears
Tomorrows with you mean tropical years
This island life has a big difference made
Since you are my song, my love’s serenade
Since you are my song, my love’s serenade


Polynesian Tuberose (09/04/2002) (#253)

There’s a pua tuberose in old Hawaii
A bright tuberose in old Hawaii
She’s a polynesian one, growing in the island sun
Sometimes I think that I am dreaming

She’s a polynesian one, tuberose of the island sun
And when the moonbeams glow, my heart she’s won
The starlit night shines down just the light
For loving

Her eyes are lovely too, my dreams will her ensue
Until I make her mine, my heart will be entwined
With this pua tuberose of old Hawaii
It’s love’s decree

There’s a pua tuberose in old Hawaii
A bright tuberose in old Hawaii
She’s a polynesian one, growing in the island sun
Sometimes I think that I am dreaming

I’m going to love that rose wherever she goes
In old Hawaii
She is my sweet tuberose, my island rose
In old Hawaii

Until I make her mine, my heart will be entwined
With this pua tuberose of old Hawaii
She’s a polynesian one, growing in the island sun
In old Hawaii


Down Tahiti Way (09/04/2002) (#254)

Below the equator, down Tahiti way
In love I fell, when in the moonlight’s spell, I happened to play
Now, wherever I’m sailing, my heart still is there staying
Below the equator, down Tahiti way

The tiare of French Polynesia, young and lovely her face
A loving touch, her warmest kiss and my heart ran apace
Now, wherever I’m sailing, my heart still is there staying
Below the equator, down Tahiti way

A tear fell when she could tell that I must leave
I tried to be strong, but my words were all wrong
Was it a lie, that I might return on a fortnight’s tide
I sailed away from where French Polynesia holds sway

Below the equator, I sailed back one day
There in the moonlight I saw such a lovely delight
My love was there waiting, and now there I will stay
Below the equator, down Tahiti way

Below the equator, down Tahiti way
In love I fell, when in the moonlight’s spell, I happened to play
The tiare of French Polynesia, young and lovely her face
Below the equator, down Tahiti way
Below the equator, down Tahiti way


O Tropic Isle (09/04/2002) (#255)

O tropic isle, you are what dreams consist of
You are what dreamers have written of
O tropic isle, you speak to me of endless love
Your moon casts golden beams from heavens above

O tropic isle, dreams are placed on your shore
Deep inside there beats excited hearts evermore
Winds of trade bring hearts of love you made
Together, then will sing again love’s serenade

O tropic isle, perfume of love is everywhere
Glances stay, bodies sway and magic fills the air
Like the best of wine, my heart feels fine
As I drink in her words that she’ll be mine

O tropic isle, from now and forever and a day
On your shores I will love forever come what may
For her love I serve my all upon life’s tray
O tropic isle, your beauty will never fade away

O tropic isle, perfume of love is everywhere
Glances stay, bodies sway and magic fills the air
Like the best of wine, my heart feels fine
As I drink in her words that she’ll be mine
O tropic isle, her love will now be mine


My Moon, Our Love (09/04/2002) (#256)

Moon stay up above me
Shine pretty beams of love on my love too

My moon is higher than can a mathematician tell
Brighter than a starlit cell
Softer than butter melts
Smoother than kisses felt
My moon, our love

Moon stay up above me
Shine pretty beams of love on my love too

The way my moon shines for you
Is as golden as a memory
Bigger than a wide blue sea
As deep as our love can be
My moon, our love

Shine on us your beams of gold
Starlit touch of dreams untold
Enwrap us in your loving fold
Beam down your love for us to hold
My moon, our love

Moon stay up above me
Shine pretty beams of love on my love too

My moon is higher than can a mathematician tell
Brighter than a starlit cell
Softer than butter melts
Smoother than kisses felt
My moon, our love
My moon, our love


Never As Much (09/04/2002) (#257)

I suppose I will see another night like this, or maybe two
But that tropic night won’t be the same unless I’m with you
They might play love songs throughout the year
But I could never love another as much as I love you

Days may come and years may pass love by
But I will remember our island nights, not the goodbyes
Stars will shine again but the moon will surely be blue
Since I could never love another as much as I love you

I’m sure there will be other lips that you and I will kiss
Those will only bring back the feelings I have for you
Your dreams and mine won’t play to the same old tune
Since I could never love another as much as I love you

Days may come and years may pass love by
But I will remember our island nights, not the goodbyes
I suppose I will see another night like this, or maybe two
But that tropic night won’t be the same unless I’m with you

Stars will shine again but the moon will surely be blue
Moon and stars will only bring back the feelings I have for you
Your dreams and mine won’t play to the same old tune
Since I could never love another as much as I love you


Island Dream Singer (09/04/2002) (#258)

When I close my eyes, it seems
I hear music as that island dreamer sings
I just float away and leave heartbreaks behind
Yesterday is just a memory in time

Island dream singer
Help me find my love tonight
Island dream singer
My dream, it seems, has taken flight

But I’ll still be here when morning comes
Chasing dreams on the run
Tradewinds might bring my dream again
And love will chase away the pain

Island dream singer
Help me find my love tonight
Island dream singer
My dream, it seems, has taken flight

When I close my eyes, it seems
I hear music as that island dreamer sings
I just float away and leave heartbreaks behind
Yesterday is just a memory in time
Tradewinds might bring my dream again
And love will chase away the pain


Love Is Crying (09/04/2002) (#259)

I’m here alone again tonight
No island love around
Clouds swept the stars out of sight
The man in the moon must have frowned

I miss those lover’s sighs
And those moonlit nights in June
I think that love is crying
On the dark side of the moon

I still hear laughter on the beach
But happiness is just out of reach
I know there must be love to share
But where I look, it’s just not there

Those golden beams of love have gone
The moon behind dark clouds has flown
I know I have to carry on
Another lonely night, another dawn

I’m here alone again tonight
No island love around
Clouds swept the stars out of sight
The man in the moon must have frowned

I miss those lover’s sighs
And those moonlit nights in June
I think that love is crying
On the dark side of the moon
I think that love is crying
On the dark side of the moon


Lovely Island Home (09/04/2002) (#260)

Here we are along the same old streets
Of Waikiki where we used to meet
Every place here makes me recall
Our love back then is now just as tall

Our love was born on this isle
And I know it took awhile
But now we’re back where we belong
Loving in our lovely island home

As twilight comes, I hear the island drums
Which drew us both with that one glance
The rest might be history, but it’s still new to me
The magic of your smile and our first dance

Our love was born on this isle
And I know it took awhile
But now we’re back where we belong
Loving in our lovely island home

How I miss those nights, but now is just as nice
These times we share and your everloving care
Returning here to the sands of Waikiki
Renews that same young love for you and me

Our love was born on this isle
And I know it took awhile
But now we’re back where we belong
Loving in our lovely island home


Island Girl Divine (09/04/2002) (#261)

The tropic sun is shining bright
Even when it rains outside
I hum a happy tune, they say
Since I have you by my side

You come into view and guitars start to play
Girl of mine, girl so fine
You’re finally my island girl divine

Our song is just as sweet as a bird of paradise
You’re complete like flowers on a vine
I feel your hand holding soft in mine
This must be like love potion number nine

You come into view and guitars start to play
Girl of mine, girl so fine
You’re finally my island girl divine

Somebody else can have that rainbow’s pot of gold
I’ll just take the rainbow this time
I’ve got gold of mine, sweet girl divine
She’s right here for me to hold

You come into view and guitars start to play
Girl of mine, girl so fine
You’re finally my island girl divine
Girl of mine, girl so fine
You’re finally my island girl divine


Tropic Isle Escape (09/04/2002) (#262)

When mainland life starts making you frown
And the boss seems to get right in your face
Hop a plane away from the mainland clowns
Let the tropic isles your soul embrace

On the isle there’s love for you and me
This kind of love is Aloha for all to see, all to see

So when you need a break, take an island treat
Lie back and relax and kick those shoes off your feet
You can look at a million stars along with me
And sail you worries out to sea

On the isle, the night moon puts on a show
Beams of love are spread around for free
You and I can find that love again I know
So let’s escape to our island across the sea

When mainland life starts making you frown
And the boss seems to get right in your face
Hop a plane away from the mainland clowns
Let the tropic isles your soul embrace

On the isle there’s love for you and me
This kind of love is Aloha for all to see, all to see


Starfilled Island Nights (09/05/2002) (#263)

Somewhere under love’s refining glow
I see you underneath that same rainbow
In a paradise of polynesian blue
I sleep with dreams of me and you

Somewhere under the moon’s golden smile
You’re still there on that tropic isle
Tonight there’s someone who’s thinking of you
Maybe you are thinking of that someone too

Somewhere under starfilled island nights
I see you dreaming in the soft moonlight
Maybe you can dream a dream for two
Just maybe truth of love will see us through

Yes, it’s true, we live in different time zones
But I just set my dreams on moonlight time
We’ll coordinate all the musical tones
To play music to the same dream with Hawaiian chimes

Tonight there’s someone who’s thinking of you
Maybe you are thinking of that someone too
I see you dreaming in the soft moonlight
I see you dreaming in the soft moonlight
Somewhere under starfilled island nights


Shine Softly Moon (09/05/2002) (#264)

Shine softly moon
Beam love into her heart
Shine forth this month of June
Our dreaming starts

Here in this isle
Beams have shone
Upon a love that is our own
That only we have known

Balmy nights, warmed by tradewinds
Lovely days, love never ends

Shine softly moon
Like the stars in the sky
Songs of love you sing
That beating hearts cannot deny

My dream is also yours
For the reason
That my heart beats with yours under
Softly shining moon of love

Shine softly moon
Like the stars in the sky
Songs of love you sing
That beating hearts cannot deny

My dream is also yours
For the reason
That my heart beats with yours under
Softly shining moon of love


(09/05/2002) (#265)

Goin’ dancin’ with my island girl
Can’t be slow ’cause I got a date
Sure feels good, sets my heart awhirl
Startin’ early so we can stay out late

Goin’ romancin’ with my island honey
Sure am glad that I’m sure not sad
May be funny, nights are sunny
Our love is on a launching pad

Lookin’ for smooth dancin’ ’cause I’m waxing my shoes
Slidin’ over the floor like lovers do

Goin’ dancin’ with my island baby
Can’t be slow ’cause I got it right
Tonight might be the big, big day
Dancin’ with my baby in the moonlight
Tonight might be the big, big day
Dancin’ with my baby in the moonlight


On The Isle Of Delight (09/05/2002) (#266)

On the isle of delight
Dreams came true, came into sight
I kissed you and held you close
I remember the love you showed
On the isle of delight

Those embers of love which we knew
Grew into a flame around me and you
I know that we will remember some day
How our love could never be cast away
On the isle of delight

We will go back and then
Stroll hand in hand again
Our love will be just as bright
On the isle of delight
On the isle of delight

Those embers of love which we knew
Grew into a flame around me and you
I kissed you and held you close
I remember the love you showed
On the isle of delight

We will go back and then
Stroll hand in hand again
Our love will be just as bright
On the isle of delight
On the isle of delight


Sweetest Island Rose (09/05/2002) (#267)

Leilani, yeah
Island beauty
I like the way you hula, girl
You make me want to dance with you
And romance you too

Leilani
Are you just make believe
Or can I really believe you’re true
Make this dream of mine come true
So my heart won’t have to grieve

Leilani, yeah
Island beauty
I like the way you hula, girl
You make me want to dance with you
And romance you too

Leilani
I like the way your arms unfurl
When you’re dancing slowly next to me
You’re an island queen, a lovely hula girl
Sweetest island rose by the deep blue sea
You’re an island queen, a lovely hula girl
Sweetest island rose by the deep blue sea


Secret Island Place (09/05/2002) (#268)

I know there must be a secret island place
That’s free from the human rat race
Away from the storm and the wind and the pace
Hidden away for the pleasures of love

When we find that secret island place
Our love will be warm and safe
Away from all worries and cares
My arms and dreams will encircle you there

I know there must be a secret island place
Where through the mist we can see
There will be rainbows for you and me
A place for lovers to share

When we find that secret island place
Our love will be warm and safe
Away from all worries and cares
My arms and dreams will encircle you there

I know there must be a secret island place
Hidden away for the pleasures of love
Hidden away for the pleasures of love


Solution (09/05/2002) (#269)

Sweet island flower, good morning to you
You make the day sunny instead of being blue
Sweet island flower, come what may
I plan to marry you some wonderful day

Sweet island flower
If you will just be the solution
Then I will be the need
I need your love’s contribution

Our romance, it’s not just by chance that I found you
Love here holds sway, so don’t look some other way
The time has come for the moon to shower
Beams of love on you, my sweet island flower

Sweet island flower, good morning to you
You make the day sunny instead of being blue
Sweet island flower, come what may
I plan to marry you some wonderful day

Sweet island flower
If you will just be the solution
Then I will be the need


Our World (09/05/2002) (#270)

I don’t believe in fate
But that day was a special date
I could walk a thousand miles and not see
A sweeter smile than yours that day to me

I’m glad that you’re mine, because otherwise
Instead of blue skies, how dark they would be
Not even the sun in this island place
Could match the beauty from your lovely face

I could walk a thousand miles and not see
A sweeter smile than yours that day to me
The light of love that I saw in your eyes
Could only be from an angel in paradise

Give love that one chance for awhile
And our world will be as bright
As the sunshine of your lovely smile
Our world will be as bright
As the sunshine of your lovely smile


Stay Just This Way (09/05/2002) (#271)

When those island guitars start to play
Dance with me, take me away
Like the waves caresses the outer reef
Dance with me and hold me sweet

As the palm trees sway in the wind
Sway my way until our bodies blend
Your smile certainly has a way with me
Stay just this way and dance with me

Who cares who has danced with you before
I only want to get to know you more
You have that young magical heat
You melt my heart with your technique

Are those guitars or island violins
I heard them play before they began
It must have been you , there’s no other way
Dancing with you just takes me away

When those island guitars start to play
Who cares who has danced with you before
I only want to get to know you more
Stay just this way and dance with me
Stay just this way and dance with me


Warm Island Sand (09/05/2002) (#272)

Everybody’s strolling hand in hand
In that warm island sand
Everybody’s feeling free as can be
Just like the tradwinds in the trees

Everybody is except for me
I guess I’m blue as blue can be
Days like these in this tropic zone
Bring tears that won’t leave me alone

In the night when the moon is rising
I feel like one minus two
Add to that those lovers paradising
The way you and I used to do

On the bay shines the big yellow moon
My smile is only a masquerade costume
I should be strolling hand in hand
In that warm island sand with you
I should be strolling hand in hand
In that warm island sand with you


Lazy Mornings (09/05/2002) (#273)

Lazy mornings with you and Kona coffee too
Smooth times like night rhymes for me and you
These are sweetest times, so let’s make the most
Of breakfast and love like cinnamon toast

You’re my island babe, and it’s time we made
The world and the time stand still
You’re the only one in the world for me
Babe, your love is my sleeping pill

Lazy mornings with you and Kona coffee too
Smooth times like night rhymes for me and you
These are sweetest times, so let’s make the most
Of breakfast and love like cinnamon toast

Lazy mornings with you and Kona coffee too
Lazy mornings with you and Kona coffee too
Lazy mornings with you and Kona coffee too


A Melody Of Love (09/05/2002) (#274)

What a melody
A melody of love
Music arranged in heaven above
Sent to play the strings of my heart
A melody of love

When you strolled into my life
The melody began
In such a short time span
That melody is like an orchestra grand
A melody of love

When you sigh, there’s no disguise
That melody is in your eyes
Speak softly and from above
A melody of love

Melody of love, play for me
When we kiss, it stays with me
You must be my angel from up above
Playing the strings of my heart with
A melody of love


Leilani’s Love (09/06/2002) (#275)

I can see the banyan trees entwined above
Entangled vines like heart strings of love
What island boy is she thinking of
Leilani is in love

Does that boy know what she knows
Whenever he comes around
Does his heart beat when they meet
When her feet lift off the ground
Leilani is in love

Are dreams only high as the trees
Or do they touch the ground
Love like her’s would only agree
Her love his arms must surround
Leilani is in love

Shorebirds fly above the sands
And the tradewinds softly blow
It’s as if they understand
Love flies to beating hearts below
Leilani is in love

Does that boy know what she knows
Whenever he comes around
Does his heart beat when they meet
When her feet lift off the ground
Leilani is in love


The Same Ideas (09/06/2002) (#276)

The way you dance is really romance
I get that idea whenever you’re near
I really do care but I really don’t dare
Do anything to make you disappear

Whenever I hold you it’s perfectly clear
I have ideas I want to whisper in your ear
Pardon me, I’ll try not to stare
You must be aware that love has appeared

I have this idea that there’s a fire somewhere
We must treat this desire with utmost of care
Your eyes never say things that aren’t there
And our love is not just a castle in the air

When we kiss, our love is one that rings true
One little glance says volumes from you
I get a message via romance for two
That you have the same ideas too
I get a message via romance for two
That you have the same ideas too


That Lovers Moon (09/06/2002) (#277)

As I hold your little hand in mine
I know your heart is as big as love comes
Big words have little meaning
So I’ll just tell you a little thing that’s big

These island tides rise and they fall
Here the rainbows shine, but that’s not all
A big wish upon a little star, and then
That lover’s moon of Hawaii calls again

When I need a little understanding, you always do
Nothing big will supercede those little words, I love you
If we should stumble in future years
This little tune we’ll play for me and you

These island tides rise and they fall
Here the rainbows shine, but that’s not all
A big wish upon a little star, and then
That lover’s moon of Hawaii calls again

These island tides rise and they fall
Here the rainbows shine, but that’s not all
A big wish upon a little star, and then
That lover’s moon of Hawaii calls again

As long as the tides rise and fall
As long as rainbows shine
As long as we can wish upon a little star, well then
That lover’s moon of Hawaii will call again


The One Of My Dreams (09/06/2002) (#278)

I watch her cross to my side of the street
Here comes the reason my heart fell at her feet
Her sweet voice rings gently in my ears
Darling, our love will last through trials and tears

Here comes my lovely sweet darling
The love that my heart esteems
Here comes my reason for giving
My heart to the one of my dreams

Her smile makes the time seem to stand still
Her kiss lets me know dreams she will fulfill
She makes me feel like a king, not just a squire
To cherish her love is my heart’s greatest desire

Here comes my lovely sweet darling
The love that my heart esteems
Here comes my reason for giving
My heart to the one of my dreams

Here comes my lovely sweet darling
The love that my heart esteems
Here comes my reason for giving
My heart to the one of my dreams


Warm Sea Of Love (09/06/2002) (#279)

The reason for this season must be the sea of love
Warm waters are swirling, divers go pearling
For their sweet love waiting in the canoe above
Now this is the season for the warm sea of love
The warm sea of love

Islands teach a lesson like a delicatessen
Love is sublime, runs to the front of the line
What’s served on the menu is already in you
Love is in season from the warm sea of love
The warm sea of love

If you ever feel that your love life is sinking
Come to the islands and change all your thinking
You’ll find divers go pearling in warm waters swirling
And what’s served on the menu is still within you
The warm sea of love

You’ll find divers go pearling in warm waters swirling
And what’s served on the menu is still within you
The warm sea of love
The warm sea of love


Love’s Door (09/06/2002) (song#280)

Flying high in the sky
The islands are telling to me
Let your love soar like the birds
Love in your eyes is what I see

When I close my eyes, I can still see
Clearly the object of my life to be
I open my eyes and love is right there
Your beauty is clearly beyond compare

I see a lot I never saw there before
More often than not you are love’s door
You open to me and it’s then that I know
I should have met you a long time ago

I open my eyes and love is right there
Your beauty is clearly beyond compare
You open to me and it’s then that I know
I should have met you a long time ago
I should have met you a long time ago


Until You (09/06/2002) (#281)

Nobody loved me until you loved me
Nobody cared until you came along
I was a pauper of love but a king is what I’ve become
You made my heart sing to the beat of island drums

My world was cold but now I’ve found gold
It’s my happiness since your love I behold
Let the world change but true love we’ll exchange
Nobody loved me until you came along

You came along and filled my heart with song
You cared when my life needed repair
You’re my island princess and my queen
You’re the reason that I’m now a king

You’re the gold of my happiness
You’re the happiness I that I behold
The vows we exchanged made my world change
Nobody loved me until you came along
Nobody loved me until you came along


Since You Came (09/06/2002) (#282)

Evening arrives and my life survives
Since you came
From the very start you had my heart
Since you came, since you came

The day that you came ended sorrow and pain
Life now sings a new refrain
My heart’s indebted to you, I’ll always be true
Since you came, since you came

Tradewinds breeze by like a lover’s sigh
Each day imparts a glad tomorrow
Each dream that drifts gives my heart a lift
Since you came, since you came

The day that you came ended sorrow and pain
Life now sings a new refrain
My heart’s indebted to you, I’ll always be true
Since you came, since you came

Tradewinds breeze by like a lover’s sigh
Each day imparts a glad tomorrow
Each dream that drifts gives my heart a lift
Since you came, since you came


I Will Simply Love You (09/06/2002) (#283)
<

Until blue oceans vaporize
Until island moons fall from the skies
Until then you must realize
I will simply love you

Until falls the mountains old
Until sunshine turns tropics cold
Until then the future has been told
I will simply love you

Now is the season to laugh and to live
My life is full of joy that you give
You’re the reason my past I forgive
I simply love you

Until waters dry from island streams
Until tropic moons quit sending golden beams
Until you and I cease to dream
I simply love you

Until blue oceans vaporize
Until island moons fall from the skies
Until then you must realize
I will simply love you
I will simply love you


My World Lingers (09/06/2002) (#284)

You taught my arms how to hold you
You called my heart and I ran
I hear you name and my world lingers
I hold you as close as I can
I hold you as close as I can

I feel the soft lips I envisioned
I hear steele guitars of island bands
I hear you name and my world lingers
We stroll together on these island sands
We stroll together on these island sands

Love tapped on my shoulder when I wasn’t looking
Then you came and stole my heart
I hear you name and my world lingers
My love is deep and will never depart
My love is deep and will never depart

You taught my arms how to hold you
You called my heart and I ran
I hear you name and my world lingers
I hold you as close as I can
I hold you as close as I can


A Flower Of Mine (09/06/2002) (#285)

This day I found a flower that I can call mine
She’s sweet as the berries that grow on the vine
Tomorrow we will marry and here we will stay
On this beautiful island with our love this day

I’ll be the happiest man on the island
I’ll sing of the love that only you bring
We will taste of love’s wonders and then
Each tomorrow will become a new spring

This day I found a flower that I can call mine
She’s sweet as the berries that grow on the vine

Love will be represented by morning glories
This island flower I found makes my heart sing
Tomorrow is our wedding, beginning love’s story
We will taste of the wonders that love brings

This day I found a flower that I can call mine
She’s sweet as the berries that grow on the vine
Tomorrow we will marry and here we will stay
On this beautiful island with our love this day
Tomorrow we will marry and here we will stay
On this beautiful island with our love this day


Gone Are My Islands (09/06/2002) (#286)

I know I’ll come back to your island some year
You don’t know how much I want to
But I’ve wed another and I must be true
Gone are my islands and oceans of blue

Many were the times that I thought of you
I remember when you said we were through
I spent many long days thinking of ways, but
Gone are my islands and oceans of blue

In moments of sorrow I still think of you
In dreams my heart is tossed
In too many mem’ries my arms reach for you, but
Gone are my islands and oceans of blue

Many were the times that I thought of you
I remember when you said we were through
I spent many long days thinking of ways, but
Gone are my islands and oceans of blue

I know I’ll come back to your island some year
You don’t know how much I want to
But I’ve wed another and I must be true
Gone are my islands and oceans of blue
Gone are my islands and oceans of blue


My True Love For You (09/06/2002) (#287)

I’ll buy you the stars that drew love and you
I’ll buy you the moonbeams above
But what I’ll offer you freely
Is truly my love

A love that is true, my true love for you
It will grow tomorrow, forever and a day
I’ll buy all the flowers I can think of
Our love will blossom and nere’ fade away

I’ll buy you the stars that drew love and you
I’ll buy you the moonbeams above
I’ll buy all the flowers I can think of
But what I’ll offer you freely

It will grow tomorrow, forever and a day
A love that is true, my true love for you
My true love, with you I will stay
A love that is true, my true love for you
My true love, with you I will stay


Like Maui Chimes (09/06/2002) (#288)

Lovely island serenades are calling
Like Maui chimes
Whenever they play, love notes are falling
Like Maui chimes

Whenever you’re not here
My heart for you does pine
Your lovely voice is music to my ears
Like Maui chimes

Deep is our love when you surrender
When nighttime comes
Dreams of delight are sweet when you are nearer
Like sugar plums

Each moment with you, my darling
Counts for all times
Your love is like island guitars playing
Like Maui chimes

Here in the moonlight by the peaceful bay
We meet again, just us two
How sweet our love like an island bouquet
My dreams begin again with you

Deep in my heart I’ll always love you
Just as today
Reminders of you will fill me
And with me stay

Each night I listen closely when you’re with me
For music of love that thrills me
Loving softly, like Maui chimes
Loving softly, like Maui chimes


Here In Hawaii (09/07/2002) (#289)

When life has got me down and everyone seems aloof
And pressures gallop in like a horse’s hoof
Here in Hawaii, in the peaceful blue sea
My girl in Waikiki is waiting for me

Here in Hawaii, playing in the sun
Here in Hawaii, life is not on the run
Here in Hawaii, the island of love
Here in Hawaii, it’s you I’m thinking of

From the moment I saw you and the way you smiled at me
I forgot about the pressures with your beguiling ways
Here in Hawaii, in the peaceful blue sea
I fell in love with Leilani

Here in Hawaii, playing in the sun
Here in Hawaii, life is not on the run
Here in Hawaii, the island of love
Here in Hawaii, it’s you I’m thinking of

Here in Hawaii, in the peaceful blue sea
I fell in love with Leilani
I fell in love with Leilani


Under An Island Palm (09/07/2002) (#290)

You are the reason why I sing this song
It’s must be nature’s balm
I could sing about you all day long
Under an island palm

Lovers stroll the warm sands at night
By the peaceful bay
And when the shooting stars are in their flight
I wish to love you every day

So, would you come down by the sea
Under an island palm with me
I could sing a song for two
Under an island palm with you

Sweetheart, I want to hold you tight
Under the full moonlight
Under an island palm with you
I’ll sing a song of love for me and you
Under an island palm with you
I’ll sing a song of love for me and you


Places And Faces (09/07/2002) (#291)

I have sailed afar, been through the seven seas
Fanciful places and faces to see
One island group I shall never forget
Is Hawaii, her islands are calling to me

Hawaii, Hawaii
Fanciful places and faces to see

There, like a dream, I met her that night
The bay was aglow with moonbeams’ love light
What a feeling of love as the wind blew fair
Blew tradewinds of love for both of us there

Hawaii, Hawaii
Fanciful place and beautiful face to me

Now she has gone and I’m all alone
Remembering places I’ve sailed on the sea
One island group I shall never forget
Is Hawaii, her islands are calling to me

Now she has gone and I’m all alone
Remembering places I’ve sailed on the sea
One island group I shall never forget
Is Hawaii, her islands are calling to me


Now That You Are Here (09/07/2002) (#292)

The skies are bluer than blue this year
Now that you are here
I’m no longer blue now that you are near
Now that you are here

The morning dew is fresher than new
Morning glories want to kiss you too
Now that you are here
Now that you are here

Someone painted rainbows all over the sky
Now that you are here
Shorebirds even stopped in mid flight
Now that you are here

The moon shines above with double it’s light
The islands bring joy this wonderful night
Now that you are here
Now that you are here
Now that you are here


Heavenly (09/07/2002) (#293)

I just want to tell you why I think you’re heavenly
You make me happy each and every day
Now that you know I think you’re heavenly
Bring me a dream to dream throughout the day

I thank the stars above each night for sending me to you
You made the lonely past just drift away from me
I’m so happy to admit it
I love you every single minute
You make me happy each and every day

I just want to tell you why I think you’re heavenly
You make me happy each and every day
Now that you know I think you’re heavenly
Bring me a dream to dream throughout the day

Strolling In The Moonlight (09/07/2002) (#294)

We go strolling in the moonlight
Until midnight
Love is a melody for two
I’m still strolling in the moonlight
In love with you

I would go for miles if I had to
To be close to you
I truly adore you, and so
I’m still strolling in the moonlight
In love with you

I see the palm trees a-swaying
Listen to what they’re saying
I think they’re swaying for me
When the tradewinds are blowing
It’s then that I’m knowing
Winds of love brought you to me

We go strolling in the moonlight
Until midnight
I’m happy just to be with you
Down here strolling in the moonlight
In love with you

I see the palm trees a-swaying
Listen to what they’re saying
I think they’re swaying for me
When the tradewinds are blowing
It’s then that I’m knowing
Winds of love brought you to me


Top Billing (09/07/2002) (#295)

Islands are always top billing
For lovers it’s always thrilling
For you and me walking side by side
I promise to be your top billing, you see
Islands brought love on the evening tide

I’ll show you why islands are always top billing
The full moon makes love fulfilling
When you’re in my arms you feel divine
You and I can go Huckleberry Finning
With you and me walking side by side

In my mind you’ll always get top billing
Your love is always thrilling
When you’re in my arms you feel divine
You and I can go Huckleberry Finning
With you and me walking side by side
This heavenly show gets top billing, with you by my side


An Island and You (09/07/2002) (#296)

What a difference an island and you made
Sunny hours make the day just fly
Rainbow showers bring island flowers
An island and you won’t let love go by

Yesterday drew me to you
Today I’m no longer blue
Those nights alone are over and done
An island and you and I are as one

What a difference an island and you made
Birds of paradise fly around for a view
The sky and the bay are peaceful
To have an island and you

Today when we stopped at the venue
I could see that romance was on the menu
What a difference an island and you made
The island is the same, but the difference is you

What a difference an island and you made
Birds of paradise fly around for a view
The sky and the bay are peaceful
To have an island and you

Today when we stopped at the venue
I could see that romance was on the menu
What a difference an island and you made
The island is the same, but the difference is you


Warm Islands (09/11/2002) (#297)

Warm islands are made for fulfilling love
I’m willing to wait for you
Your heart and mine don’t come and go with the tide
Kisses from you could never be cast aside

Warm islands are made for fulfilling love
I’m waiting for that golden moment, love
My arms are empty ’til you say you’ll be mine
Are you willing for two warm hearts to combine

Warm are the days and so are the nights
Please say you’ll say “I do” in this island moonlight
Warm islands are made for thrilling love
With your heart, mine would be fulfilling love

Warm islands are made for fulfilling love
I’m willing to wait for you
My arms are empty ’til you say you’ll be mine
Are you willing for two warm hearts to combine

Warm are the days and so are the nights
Please say you’ll say “I do” in this island moonlight
Warm islands are made for thrilling love
With your heart, mine would be fulfilling love
Warm islands are made for fulfilling our love


You Made Me A King (09/17/2002) (#298)

You’re my dream island angel, and you made me a man
You made me a king when you took my hand
Here we will stay in this our island kingdom grand
And in my heart you will stay just as love had planned

Our world’s have merged into one and the same
We laugh and play but it’s not just a game
I’m glad you stayed, and so is my heart
Love brought together what cannot be apart

I really don’t know why, and I don’t know just how
But your heart and mine were meant for love’s vow
When did it begin, we may never really know
But it will never end, this my heart will show

I’m glad you stayed, and so is my heart
Love brought together what cannot be apart
You made me a king when you took my hand
You’re my dream island angel, and you made me a man
You’re my dream island angel, and you made me a man


Taboo (09/18/2002) (#299)

O my love, can you tell me
What is it that makes me love you like I do
I know you want to be free
What was it that made our love taboo

O my love, I’m lonesome night and day
Tell me, what did I do or say
Our love was like a beautiful bouquet
What made it die and fade away

O my love, my heart still burns with love for you
Those island times I dream of every day
Maybe someday soon our love we could renew
So we could love again like yesterday

I could send you pretty island flowers
But then I really want to shower you with love
Would you come back to me this hour
And get our love on track under island stars above

What was it that made our love taboo
What is it that makes me love you like I do
Those island times I dream of every day
What made it die and fade away

I could send you pretty island flowers
But then I really want to shower you with love
Would you come back to me this hour
And get our love on track under island stars above


Three Hundred (09/18/2002) (#300)

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

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

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

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


A Wonderful You (09/19/2002) (#301)

When I look at those seas of blue and green too
I see islands where flowers bloom for me and you
I think in my mind what a wonderful time
How did I ever find such a wonderful you

Birds fly in the skies and seem to invite
Unspoken words cry dreams come at night
I thank the stars above and moonbeams too
For sending to me such a wonderful you

When the sunshine paints rainbows in the sky
I smile to myself and to lovers strolling by
They hear my heart sing when I’m walking there too
Island flowers of spring bloom for wonderful you

When I look at those seas of blue and green too
I see islands where flowers bloom for me and you
I thank the stars above and moonbeams too
For sending to me such a wonderful you

When the sunshine paints rainbows in the sky
I smile to myself and to lovers strolling by
They hear my heart sing when I’m walking there too
What a wonderful thing to find a wonderful you
What a wonderful thing to find a wonderful you


Mold My Heart (09/19/2002) (#302)

Love for you is growing
On my heart bestowing
Your tender touch holds sway
Words can’t say as much
As my heart wants to convey

Your kiss is so fulfilling
Charms of love so thrilling
Lovely as a fresh bouquet
Soft as an angel’s touch
I love you more than yesterday

Please say that you will never leave me
Mold my heart of clay and weave me
Tell me that you love me sweetly
I will give to you my heart completely
Be mine forever and a day

Love for you is growing
On my heart bestowing
Your tender touch holds sway
Words can’t say as much
As my heart wants to convey
Be mine forever and a day


Under That Palm Tree (09/19/2002) (#303)

When I sway my honey under that palm tree
Down by the bay, it’s sunny as a day can be
She likes to hear me say I love you sweetly
When I sway my honey under that palm tree

I like to spend a dollar, or two or maybe three
I might not be a scholar but we both agree
Romance ain’t free but we’re happy as can be
When I sway my honey under that palm tree

Then every night when the moon is right
And tradewinds bring the island breeze
We trade love’s vows under that moon’s light
When I sway my honey under that palm tree

When I sway my honey under that palm tree
Down by the bay, it’s sunny as a day can be
Then every night when the moon is right
We trade love’s vows under that moon’s light
When I sway my honey under that palm tree


Dream Out Of The Blue (09/19/2002) (#304)

It might seem like just a line, but I can’t ignore
I swear I’ve seen you at least once before
It must have been a dream out of the blue
You must be a dream that just came true

That sunny island dress fits you to a tee
It’s funny I must confess to a big degree
How history repeats itself I wish I knew
You must be a dream that just came true

Something in your smile tells me it’s true
Don’t know what it is but it’s a cue
I don’t want to miss saying this line to you
You must be a dream that just came true

It might seem like just a line, but I can’t ignore
I swear I’ve seen you at least once before
It must have been a dream out of the blue
You must be a dream that just came true
It must have been a dream out of the blue
You must be a dream that just came true


I’ll Find Love (09/19/2002) (#305)

I know I’ll find love when I get home
She’s everything I ever want to own
I guess I’m a book that’s already read
I know I’ll find love when I get home

She makes rocky roads look smooth ahead
I’m unlocking all my love that’s been left unsaid
To let her know that from her side I’ll never roam
I know I’ll find love when I get home

We decided way back when to share our dreams
A song of love with violins is what it seems
Stars above still shine and I never feel alone
I know I’ll find love when I get home

I know I’ll find love when I get home
She’s everything I ever want to own
I guess I’m a book that’s already read
I know I’ll find love when I get home
I guess I’m a book that’s already read
I know I’ll find love when I get home


Sing Away The Blues (09/19/2002) (#306)

Sometimes I wonder why everything seems so dark
Like the news at six or some unkind remark
But then I think of you and I’m happy as a lark
I sing away the blues and to your love my heart embarks

I hear the ocean against the reef roaring
I see the shorebirds by the palm trees soaring
It’s really no wonder why everything seems so bright
I sing away the blues and love you every day and night

I used to think that my heart was broken up for good
Life was out of sync and apart from love I stood
Then I saw a brand new face put on a smile for me
Now I understand the grace of this island in the sea

I hear the ocean against the reef roaring
I see the shorebirds by the palm trees soaring
It’s really no wonder why everything seems so bright
I sing away the blues and love you every day and night
It’s really no wonder why everything seems so bright
I sing away the blues and love you every day and night


Just Think Of Me (09/20/2002) (#307)

I sometimes feel like I’m on an island all alone
Darling, all you have to do is telephone
And I’ll come running home, don’t you see
Just think of me, just think of me

If memories of the past try to weigh you down
Let go that mooring mast and drift my way
Sweetheart, the past is past and it’s time to say
Just think of me, just think of me

I’m regretful of the bad times that made you sad
Don’t be forgetful of the good times that we had
Time changes everything including all you see
Just think of me, just think of me

The time has passed when I thought I could be free
I pray the time has come when we can both agree
That your future love and mine are both the same
Just think of me, just think of me

I’m regretful of the bad times that made you sad
Don’t be forgetful of the good times that we had
Time changes everything including all you see
Just think of me, just think of me


A White Love Boat (09/20/2002) (#308)

A white love boat on a deep blue ocean
Love had success at our first glance
A white love boat on a deep blue ocean
A tropic zone for love’s song and dance

The moon is gold and love’s aglow
I love you more than you’ll ever know
Time has changed the islands in the stream
A sea of love is now our dreams

A white love boat on a deep blue ocean
Our love is true blue hued
Love had success at our first glance
A tropic zone for love’s song and dance

The moon is gold and love’s aglow
I love you more than you’ll ever know
Time has changed the islands in the stream
A sea of love is now our dreams

A white love boat on a deep blue ocean
Our love is true blue hued


I’m The One Who Cares (09/20/2002) (#309)

Is there anyone who could not love you
Who would dare to never for you care
Islands are so enchanting because of you
Your loveliness is almost beyond compare

In the stream of time, who wouldn’t dream
Of someone like you, a dream as anybody knows
You’re the island breeze that love now blows
You cause love to sprout just like an island rose

Is there anyone who wouldn’t for you fly
To the moon for you for beams of love to buy
Heaven answered all my dreams and prayers
I’m the one who loves you, I’m the one who cares

In the stream of time, who wouldn’t dream
Of someone like you, a dream as anybody knows
You’re the island breeze that love now blows
You cause love to sprout just like an island rose
Heaven answered all my dreams and prayers
I’m the one who loves you, I’m the one who cares


King Of Love (09/20/2002) (#310)
I can feel the warmth of you presence and your grace
I see sunlight of love in your hands and face
I could never circumvent your love at any time
Because of you I don’t just talk of love, I walk the line

You’re the island princess of the love book story
The beauty of the daytime morning glory
I would be the king of love if I became
The one who married you and changed your name

You know you’re the one who sets my heart aglow
Everything about you is what I want to know
My feet is higher than the island sand, it seems
You are the object of my love and of my dreams

When you appeared I knew love had to start
You’re on my mind and always in my heart
Don’t you know I don’t even have to tell you so
My eyes say I love you more than you can know

You’re the island princess of the love book story
The beauty of the daytime morning glory
I would be the king of love if I became
The one who married you and changed your name
I would be the king of love if I became
The one who married you and changed your name


(09/20/2002) (#311)

When the moon is on the rise you can see him arrive
The Ali’i warrior, Kiho’alu, on the incoming tide
Warriors run but they can’t hide from Kiho’alu’s stride
The man in his canoe, they just call the one-man tide

What island he comes from nobody seems to know
But when the drums of war sound, they embody his soul
He’s not a man of words, he just makes other men subside
Kiho’alu, the ali’i, the man they call the one-man tide

Some say he’s from Tahiti or islands in between
Some say he’s just a story about islands in the stream
Island girls all run but they don’t try to hide
From Kiho’alu, the legend, the warrior, the one-man tide

When the moon is on the rise, you might see him arrive
The hewn out drums signal war and it’s no surprise
When you see his canoe through the reef on the tide
Kiho’alu, the ali’i, the man they call the one-man tide

Some say he’s from Tahiti or islands in between
Some say he’s just a story about islands in the stream
Island girls all run but they don’t try to hide
From Kiho’alu, the legend, the warrior, the one-man tide

What island he comes from nobody seems to know
But when the drums of war sound, they embody his soul
When the moon is on the rise, you might see him arrive
Kiho’alu, the ali’i, the legend, the one-man tide


Tomorrow’s Gold (09/20/2002) (#312)

On any early island morning in your beauty sleep
I count my blessings instead of counting sheep
It’s you I’m caressing and I’m surely thankful of
This dream of having you for my true and only love

When the day is done and evening shadows fall
Words of praise I cannot shun of things that I recall
The little things you do always mean the most to me
Things out of the blue just seem close to majesty

Ocean currents come and go but islands stay the same
Time will come and go but our love will stay aflame
Now while the sun is bright before we both grow old
Our blessings we count now will be tomorrow’s gold

On any early island morning in your beauty sleep
I count my blessings instead of counting sheep
It’s you I’m caressing and I’m surely thankful of
This dream of having you for my true and only love

Ocean currents come and go but islands stay the same
Time will come and go but our love will stay aflame
Now while the sun is bright before we both grow old
Our blessings we count now will be tomorrow’s gold


This Island Realm (09/20/2002) (#313)

As we stroll hand in hand on the sand by the shore
The breeze seems to whisper you’re the one that I adore
When you look at me and I see starlight in your eyes
I wonder how such a wonderful night could arrive

When I hold you close and smell your sweet perfume
My heart seems inclined to sing to you an island tune
A song of love that only two can ever share
What a wonderful melody, this feeling of love so rare

When I kiss your lips and your heart beats with mine
I’m overwhelmed like the taste of sweetest wine
I look at the light of golden moonbeams from above
This island realm has brought you to me, my island love

The world is full of songs of love and some are true
But all of mine belong to you, deep as oceans of blue

When I hold you close and smell your sweet perfume
My heart seems inclined to sing to you an island tune
I look at the light of golden moonbeams from above
This island realm has brought you to me, my island love
I look at the light of golden moonbeams from above
This island realm has brought you to me, my island love


Those Little Things (09/20/2002) (#314)

There’s many little things I just had to do
Some little things I had to say
You made me say and you made me do
All those little things that mean I love you

I don’t know if you were fishing
But I sure enjoyed the bait
Maybe it was just the timing
Since I can’t believe it’s fate

When I moved to Honolulu I thought it would be cool
To keep my time on Zulu, not play by island rules
But you were in the rule book I read that sunny day
Your sweet little school looks just took my heart away

I don’t know if you were fishing
But I sure enjoyed the bait
Maybe it was just the timing
Since I can’t believe it’s fate

There’s many little things I just had to do
Some little things I had to say
You made me say and you made me do
All those little things that mean I love you


Dreams I Have Known (09/20/2002) (#315)

I like island weather, those bright sunny days
Storms may come but they soon blow away
I see you in my dreams and it’s funny they say
But you and my dreams keep my troubles at bay

When rainbows shine over skies of deep blue
I feel just fine and there’s one thing that I do
I just assign my good fortune to you
You and my dreams just keep coming through

My grass shack is a castle whenever you’re home
There’s no track of a vassle, I’m a king on a throne
You’re my beauty, my princess, my queen all alone
You’re my island love and the dreams I have known

My grass shack is a castle whenever you’re home
There’s no track of a vassle, I’m a king on a throne
You’re my beauty, my princess, my queen all alone
You’re my island love and the dreams I have known
The dreams I have known


Round Up (09/21/2002) (#316)

Over here the cowboy nights blow cold
But I remember you
I’m a drover of the longhorns, growing old
But I remember you

You’re the girl in fair Hawaii that I used to know
And I remember you
Those paniolo days and guitars by the sea
Do you remember me

It’s a long ‘ol way from Texas to Hawaiian days we knew
Years have passed like tumbleweeds but I remember you
Do you ever reminisce of cowboy deeds when I kissed you
Do you remember me

I push those dogies through the draw
And round up thoughts of you
To remember first love is a cowboy’s unwritten law
And I remember you

It’s a long ‘ol way from Texas to Hawaiian days we knew
Years have passed like tumbleweeds but I still love you true
I remember when I met you and I wish you could hear me say
I remember your sweet face and I still have your ginger lei

It’s a long ‘ol way from Texas to Hawaiian days we knew
Years have passed like tumbleweeds but I still love you true
I remember when I met you and I wish you could hear me say
I remember your sweet face and I still have your ginger lei


My Hawaii And You (09/21/2002) (#317)

Here comes that doggone rain ‘a fallin’
I don’t see the sunshine ‘a callin’
So I’ll just do what’s best for me
I’ll think of my Hawaii in the sea

I know it’s not productive to be dreamin’
But it’s instructive and my heart is schemin’
I won’t let dreams fall apart for me
I’ll think of my Hawaii in the sea

Over there the sun is just ‘a shinin’
So now seems like the perfect timin’
To reminisce about skies of blue
And dream of my Hawaii and you

I’ll bet those palms are still ‘a swayin’
And I know the skies are still all blue
Tradewinds whisper and are sayin’
Come back to my Hawaii and you

I’ll bet those palms are still ‘a swayin’
And I know the skies are still all blue
Tradewinds whisper and are sayin’
Come back to my Hawaii and you
Come back to my Hawaii and you


Tender Love (09/21/2002) (#318)

Today you say that I’m your guy
And you’re my girl
I won’t betray the reason
Why my heart is in a whirl

Island love is tender love
Heavenly isles out in the ocean

Your sweet embrace and this island place
Feels fine
There’s only one true love and now
I’ve found mine

Island love is tender love
Heavenly isles out in the ocean
I’m your guy and you’re my girl
Heavenly nights of love’s potion

When I feel your kiss from lips so sweet
You steal my heart with love complete
I know there could never be another you
To own my heart and love me like you do

Island love is tender love
Heavenly isles out in the ocean
I’m your guy and you’re my girl
Heavenly nights of love’s potion


Hard To Define (09/21/2002) (#319)

When I talk to you I know you’re a friend
When I kiss you lips they’re sweeter than wine
You even put my heart on the mend
Love like yours is hard to define

When you look at me and I see a glow
I see more than most men ever will find
But I don’t need a literary review to know
Love like yours is hard to define

When I’m with you, you make me feel so alive
You feel so right that there’s nothing to refine
There’s no definition I can contrive
Love like yours is hard to define

When I call you on the telephone
And we talk about your furure and mine
We’ll live and love here in this tropic zone
Love like yours is hard to define

When I call you on the telephone
And we talk about your furure and mine
We’ll live and love here in this tropic zone
Love like yours is hard to define


You Light My World (09/21/2002) (#320)

The island winds are blowing soft and fair
Rays of sunlight streaming through your hair
Days of dreaming I knew would bring you here
But I still dream some more whenever you appear

The lighthouse on the shore is a beacon for lost souls
The starlight that’s in your eyes weaken my control
You light my world with love even when you’re not around
I’m like a ship with sails unfurled with my feet on solid ground

I can hear island drums beating late at night
It’s the rhythm of our hearts stating love’s delight
When two hearts become as one instead of two
It’s an integral component part of my love for you

The lighthouse on the shore is a beacon for lost souls
The starlight that’s in your eyes weaken my control
You light my world with love even when you’re not around
I’m like a ship with sails unfurled with my feet on solid ground
You light my world with love even when you’re not around
I’m like a ship with sails unfurled with my feet on solid ground
You light my world


Brighter Side (09/21/2002) (#321)

Here’s to all those busy mainland people
Who don’t have time to watch the time
Nine to five just maked me dizzy
Working that treadmill corporate climb

Here on the island it’s not the money
Or the striving after the wind
It’s the brighter side of life that’s sunny
And folks who know how to be your friend

Here’s to all those busy mainland people
Who think that life has passed them by
Take time to rethink and you’ll agree
Flying high is just a pie in the sky

Here on the island it’s not the time
Or having your cake and eating it too
Love and friendship makes the rhyme
That sings an island song for me and you

Here on the island it’s not the money
Or the striving after the wind
It’s the brighter side of life that’s sunny
And folks who know how to be your friend

Here on the island it’s not the time
Or having your cake and eating it too
Love and friendship makes the rhyme
That sings an island song for me and you


Shiny Crystal Ball (09/22/2002) (#322)

I like the way we said goodby to yesterday
When empty days stood by to make me sad
I like the way you said hello to me today
It makes tomorrow bright and my heart glad

I once thought that solitaire was easy to play
But looking back I lost that game every time
The queen of love fell right through my hands
Life and love had tossed to me that same old line

Now I can see forever in my shiny crystal ball
You’re worth all endeavor whether big or small
Yesterday is fading fast just like ancient history
Your love has saved my future from a mystery

I once thought that solitaire was easy to play
But looking back I lost that game every time
The queen of love fell right through my hands
Life and love had tossed to me that same old line

Now I can see forever in my shiny crystal ball
You’re worth all endeavor whether big or small
Yesterday is fading fast just like ancient history
Your love has saved my future from a mystery


Face Of Love (09/22/2002) (#323)

A thousand words, a thousand lines
Couldn’t paint your picture or a sign
That could explain why island stars above
Sent an angel here for me to love

I just know I’ll never know
How to show how deep my love will grow
But I’ll paint both your picture and a sign
With love for you forever while you’re mine

Helen of Troy faced the launch of a thousand ships
But that was before your time
Magellan sailed the seas on an ocean trip
They never saw the beauty I would find

There are many islands in the stream
And many girls cause men like me to dream
I’ve found the island I was dreaming of
When I saw you I found the face of love

Helen of Troy faced the launch of a thousand ships
But that was before your time
Magellan sailed the seas on an ocean trip
They never saw the beauty I would find

There are many islands in the stream
And many girls cause men like me to dream
I’ve found the island I was dreaming of
When I saw you I found the face of love


Empty Island Home (09/22/2002) (#324)

Don’t ever say that you would leave
Don’t say goodbye ’cause I would grieve
If you go then I would be alone
A empty heart on an empty island home

My happiness depends so much on you
I wouldn’t know what else to do
You know my heart isn’t made of stone
I couldn’t show love on an empty island home

You know your love does matter much to me
So no matter what you say or do
All that matters is that you never roam
So I don’t have to have an empty island home

Don’t ever change or make me blue
I could only live by loving only you
If you leave I would move just south of Nome
So I don’t have to have an empty island home

Don’t ever say that you would leave
Don’t say goodbye ’cause I would grieve
If you go then I would be alone
A empty heart on an empty island home


Rambling Love (09/22/2002) (#325)

If you ramble you are gambling with love
Rushing in and out will make of you a fool
Like a bramble bush life will turn out cruel
So don’t ramble or gamble in and out of love

Give it plenty of ample time to grow
Don’t ever think that love is just a show
You’ll surely lose that moonlight up above
So don’t ramble or gamble in and out of love

There’s a big yellow moon shining down tonight
Beams of love whisper sweetly as a dove
Don’t be a fool and let love fade out of sight
So don’t ramble or gamble in and out of love

If you ramble you are gambling with love
Rushing in and out will make of you a fool
Like a bramble bush life will turn out cruel
So don’t ramble or gamble in and out of love

There’s a big yellow moon shining down tonight
Beams of love whisper sweetly as a dove
Don’t be a fool and let love fade out of sight
So don’t ramble or gamble in and out of love


One Short Step To Heartbeak (09/22/2002) (#326)

It was a long old climb to make you mine
One short step to heartbreak
I thought in time our love was fine
What wrong step did I take
What wrong step did I take

We were in our prime and right on time
To keep our wedding date
It seems like a crime to cry all the time
One misstep to heartbreak
One misstep to heartbreak

Where did I go wrong in loving you
What did I do to make you blue
I’ll make it up to you somehow
What about those wedding vows

I know I didn’t have a crystal ball
To tell me when love would fall
But I thought you understood
My love for you was true and good

It was a long old climb to make you mine
One short step to heartbreak
I thought in time our love was fine
What wrong step did I take
What wrong step did I take

We were in our prime and right on time
To keep our wedding date
It seems like a crime to cry all the time
One misstep to heartbreak
One short step to heartbreak
One short step to heartbreak


Take Me Back (09/22/2002) (#327)

It’s a moonlit night in my home town in that tropic zone
So, what am I doing over here eatin’ all alone
I must have been crazy when I thought I could be happy here
When all of my friends and memories are happy over there

Take me back to my home town in my tropic zone
So I won’t have to think about sittin’ here all alone
Take me back to Old Lahaina Town never more to roam
Take me back to my home town in my tropic zone

Over here I work for dough from people I don’t know
Over there where tradewinds blow is where I want to go
People over there are friends who really care
And don’t despair about not being a millionaire

Take me back to my home town in my tropic zone
So I won’t have to think about sittin’ here all alone
Take me back to Old Lahaina Town never more to roam
Take me back to my home town in my tropic zone

I remember those favorite times doing as I pleased
When I was young and playing in the tropic breeze
I must have been crazy thinking that I could please
Myself alone and working toward coronary disease

It’s a moonlit night in my home town in that tropic zone
So, what am I doing over here eatin’ all alone
I must have been crazy when I thought I could be happy here
When all of my friends and memories are happy over there

Take me back to my home town in my tropic zone
So I won’t have to think about sittin’ here all alone
Take me back to Old Lahaina Town never more to roam
Take me back to my home town in my tropic zone


Waiting Just For You (09/22/2002) (#328)

When you said goodbye to this lonely guy
You knew that I would sit here and cry
There’s nothing left of those skies of blue
While I’m sitting here waiting just for you

I loved you even before you said you cared
What happened to the love that we once shared
Now I’m an island by myself in a sea of blue
While I’m sitting here waiting just for you

A ship of love can sail through stormy days
A ship of fools has to bail those tears away
I guess I’m just a fool for still loving you
While I’m sitting here waiting just for you

I remember glad times in the tropic rain
When you and I sang the same refrain
Now I sing the blues about times we knew
While I’m sitting here waiting just for you

A ship of love can sail through stormy days
A ship of fools has to bail those tears away
I guess I’m just a fool for still loving you
While I’m sitting here waiting just for you

I loved you even before you said you cared
What happened to the love that we once shared
Now I’m an island by myself in a sea of blue
While I’m sitting here waiting just for you


History Book Island (09/22/2002) (#329)

I’ve been searching for an island and a plot of ground
An island of love for just us two and nobody else around
I may have to dump the desert in the deep blue sea
But just to have your love I would shovel endlessly

I would have to give it a name, our new island home
I may have to proclaim sovereignty for us alone
It would be the first island in the books of history
To be named the island of love for just you and me

I’ll build an island of love for just you and me
An island of love for all the world to see
So bring along your love and go sail with me
To our island of love in the deep blue sea

It won’t cost a dime ’cause there’s no money you see
When we cross that tropic line of love in the sea
So pack your bikini and don’t forget to bring your heart
You’ll be my island queenie and I’ll play the kingly part

I’ve been searching for an island and a plot of ground
An island of love for just us two and nobody else around
I may have to dump the desert in the deep blue sea
But just to have your love I would shovel endlessly

I’ll build an island of love for just you and me
An island of love for all the world to see
So bring along your love and go sail with me
To our island of love in the deep blue sea


Toward Islands Steer (09/22/2002) (#330)

Many sailors came here as whalers
A lot of men turned out that way
Many of them only counted the hours
Until they could sail away
Until they could sail away

Many days were cold and dreary
Whaling in those artic seas
Many men would test the theory
That life was short with misery
That life was short with misery

But many of them wanted to stay
Dropped their anchor in a peaceful bay
Some would see the perfect evening sunset
Of many island days they could not forget
But others sailed away to their regret

A whaling day of life was a day of strife
In those arctic seas of cold and fear
Many faced the day and many had to pray
For winds their ship toward islands steer
For winds their ship toward islands steer

Many sailors came here as whalers
A lot of men turned out that way
Many of them only counted the hours
Until they could sail away
Until they could sail away

A whaling day of life was a day of strife
In those arctic seas of cold and fear
Many faced the day and many had to pray
For winds their ship toward islands steer
For winds their ship toward islands steer


Under That Moonlight (09/22/2002) (#331)

If I were on an island all by myself
I would give you the chart to my sea of blue
If you were to land on a coral shelf
I would swim the ocean to rescue you

If I were a tiki torch with a warm desire
I would give you the match to light my fire
I wouldn’t mind if you scorched me blue
I think I could find time for loving you

We could live in a cottage down by the sea
Give a lot of love about half passed three
If I were a lamp in the middle of the night
You could turn me on under that moonlight

If I had to go fishing in an outrigger canoe
This is what I could tell you that I’d do
I would dive down deep in the deep blue bay
And bring you a pearl each and every day

If I were a tiki torch with a warm desire
I would give you the match to light my fire
I wouldn’t mind if you scorched me blue
I think I could find time for loving you

We could live in a cottage down by the sea
Give a lot of love about half passed three
If I were a lamp in the middle of the night
You could turn me on under that moonlight
You could turn me on under that moonlight


Just An Island (09/22/2002) (#332)

I’ve got lots of love for you deep in my heart
But it can’t keep burning if we’re far apart
Come to me here on my island in the sea
And we’ll sing songs of love eternally

An island is just an island if you just dream it
Steel guitars don’t sound afar unless you play them
Life is lonely if you only have to live it
And love alone is nothing but a solitary gem

I would go to bat for you but I might miss
If you throw love a cruve and not a kiss
So here I am on my island of happiness
Waiting for the lips mine want to press

An island is just an island if you just dream it
Steel guitars don’t sound afar unless you play them
Life is lonely if you only have to live it
And love alone is nothing but a solitary gem

I’m wishing upon a star in this starlight
But wishes can’t come true if you’re not in sight
So be mine tonight under this moon above
Be mine tonight and be my island love

I’m wishing upon a star in this starlight
But wishes can’t come true if you’re not in sight
So be mine tonight under this moon above
Be mine tonight and be my island love
Be mine tonight and be my island love


Sea Of Love Inside Of Me (09/22/2002) (#333)

Your love is just an island memory
But a sea of love is deep inside of me
I didn’t mean to let it sail away
And now’s the day to live and learn
This lonely day I wait for love’s return

Sea of love inside of me
See the love I let sail free
Sail my ship of love back to me
Sea of love inside of me

My isle of love is now for castaways
Won’t you rescue me from here I pray
Next time I know I’ll treat you right
Rescue me, my love from this lonely night

Sea of love inside of me
See the love I let sail free
Sail my ship of love back to me
Sea of love inside of me

Your love is just an island memory
But a sea of love is deep inside of me
I didn’t mean to let it sail away
And now’s the day to live and learn
This lonely day I wait for love’s return

Sea of love inside of me
See the love I let sail free
Sail my ship of love back to me
Sea of love inside of me
Sea of love inside of me


Storm Of Love (09/22/2002) (#334)

Hand me that paddle to that outrigger canoe
A hurricane’s comin’ that’s bigger than you
You want her love but I’ll get there first
This storm of my love just can’t be submersed

You’re wasting your time and the money you spend
The storm of love in my heart you can’t comprehend
You say that you love her but listen my friend
A hurricane’s coming that our friendship will end

I got her letter in a packet just the other day
Said you were a cad and from her stay away
I read all the words between all the lines
This storm of love will now make her mine

Hand me that paddle to that outrigger canoe
A hurricane’s comin’ that’s bigger than you
You want her love but I’ll get there first
This storm of my love just can’t be submersed

I got her letter in a packet just the other day
Said you were a cad and from her stay away
I read all the words between all the lines
This storm of love will now make her mine
This storm of love will now make her mine


(09/23/2002) (#335)

Hey there slack key band on that luau stand
Play a kiho’alu song so we can sing it too
Play a ukelele tune that’s sure to include
Those feelings of Aloha with love imbued

Hey there slack key band on that luau stand
Play songs of island love and happiness
Keep ’em flowing like the tide, playin’ your best
Kinda low and slow and love will do the rest

Hey there slack key band on that luau stand
Fill this starlit night with music so tender
Kinda light and merry so she will understand
That my kiho’alu song of love is for her surrender

Play a kiho’alu song so we can sing it too
Play a ukulele tune with Aloha love imbued
Keep ’em flowing like the tide, playin’ your best
Kinda low and slow and love will do the rest

Hey there slack key band on that luau stand
Fill this starlit night with music so tender
Kinda light and merry so she will understand
That my kiho’alu song of love is for her surrender
Play me songs of love for her surrender
Songs of love for her surrender


You Came Back (09/23/2002) (#336)

Well you came back and I’m in love again
My little grass shack is back on the mend
I’m so happy that I didn’t give in
To all those worries that our love would end

We’re back on track to where it all began
Strolling beaches in the sun and gettin’ our tan
I’m happy you’re back and it’s not just pretend
Livin’ our dream that I hope will never end

Well you came back and I love you still
You give my heart a whirl and you always will
When you left that day I nearly lost my mind
My heart was on empty almost all the time

Now that you came back I’m living in a dream
My little grass shack again fits the island scene
Blue Hawaii really is where dreams come true
You came back and I’m so in love with you

Now that you came back I’m living in a dream
My little grass shack again fits the island scene
Blue Hawaii really is where dreams come true
You came back and I’m so in love with you
You came back and I’m so in love with you


Up On Cloud Nine (09/23/2002) (#337)

What lovely island did you come from
One look and my heart had to succumb
I thought you were a dream before my eyes
You know you caught my heart by surprise

I hope you’re not a mist of the summer rain
If you are well I just kissed a dream again
Your lips are sweeter than red red wine
You can be my heater just any old time

Now that you’re here what are you goin’ to do
Wherever you’re goin’ I’ll be goin’ there too
I can’t let a dream escape so put your hand in mine
And float along with me up on cloud nine

What lovely island did you come from
One look and my heart had to succumb
I thought you were a dream before my eyes
You know you caught my heart by surprise

I hope you’re not a mist of the summer rain
If you are well I just kissed a dream again
I can’t let a dream escape so put your hand in mine
And float along with me up on cloud nine
Float along with me up on cloud nine
Up on cloud nine


Day For Doin’ Nothing (09/23/2002) (#338)

It’s a wonderful island day for doin’ nothing
That’s why I’m thinkin’ of something with you
Let’s go to the beach and you can teach me something
About doin’ nothing that means everything to me

We’ll lay in the shadows of lofty palm trees
We’ll watch shorebirds fly along in the breeze
Teach me something about whatever you please
Doin’ nothing and let love grow high as the trees

It’s a wonderful island day for just dreaming
This is the day for which my heart was scheming
I’ve been waiting for a day for doin’ nothing
That’s why I’m thinkin’ of something with you

It’s a wonderful island day for doin’ nothing
That’s why I’m thinkin’ of something with you
Let’s go to the beach and you can teach me something
About doin’ nothing that means everything to me

We’ll lay in the shadows of lofty palm trees
We’ll watch shorebirds fly along in the breeze
Teach me something about whatever you please
Doin’ nothing and let love grow high as the trees
I’ve been waiting for a day for doin’ nothing
That’s why I’m thinkin’ of something with you


Affair Of Love (09/24/2002) (#339)

The love we share is wonderful thing
No wonder the air is full of birds that sing
You were my first choice and I’m remembering
That first dance that started our life long fling

I loved you from our very first embrace
Your smile makes this island a special place
I still love you even though life is a slower pace
It’s like a story from Honolulu’s gathering place

In our love I find that all of you is fair
This affair of love is just what it ought to be
When I met you I met the answer to my prayer
Let’s keep our island love burning eternally

I hold you every night in my arms and in my care
Forever won’t be too long for our love to share
We will keep our love warm like a glowing ember
So this affair of love will be one to remember

I loved you from our very first embrace
Your smile makes this island a special place
I still love you even though life is a slower pace
It’s like a story from Honolulu’s gathering place

I hold you every night in my arms and in my care
Forever won’t be too long for our love to share
We will keep our love warm like a glowing ember
So this affair of love will be one to remember
We will keep our love warm like a glowing ember
So this affair of love will be one to remember


For The Harvest Moon (09/25/2002) (#340)

Tonight I saw the harvest moon
It was in September, not in June
I remember when we were still in tune
My island love flew away too soon
For the harvest moon

September harvest moon, you were there for me in June
Could you please play again love’s tune for the harvest moon

Tonight I stand here all alone
I have no love to call my own
When a new love will come is still unknown
My island love flew away too soon
For the harvest moon

Tonight she is still the dream in my heart
Why did our love have to part
And when will love find a new start
My island love flew away too soon
For the harvest moon

September harvest moon, you were there for me in June
Could you please play again love’s tune for the harvest moon

Then I offered up a silent prayer
Please send someone who really cares
I need someone for my love to share
If she comes now it won’t be too soon
For the harvest moon

I heard the tradewinds whisper in my ear
I turned to see an island angel near
She said she was sorry for that night in June
And if I took her back it would not be too soon
For the harvest moon

September harvest moon, you were there for me in June
Thank you for playing again love’s tune for the harvest moon


Smiling Like A Dream (09/25/2002) (#341)

When I saw you smiling it was no surprise
‘Cause for dreams to smile is supposed to be
When I saw you smiling I was caught by surprise
‘Cause you were smiling like a dream at me

You chased the blues away
With words of love you bring
You brought sunshine my way
Just like the birds that sing

Now there’s happy times ahead I see
I feel snappy rhyming words of love
You and I were really meant to be
Smiling dreams we both dreamed of

You chased the blues away
With words of love you bring
You brought sunshine my way
Just like the birds that sing

Say goodbye to the blues
Say Aloha to the birds that sing
Say good morning to the sunshine every day
I hear the words of love you bring

You chased the blues away
With words of love you bring
You brought sunshine my way
Just like the birds that sing

When I saw you smiling it was no surprise
‘Cause for dreams to smile is supposed to be
When I saw you smiling I was caught by surprise
‘Cause you were smiling like a dream at me
‘Cause you were smiling like a dream at me


Angel Without Wings (09/25/2002) (#342)

I used to dream of castles and being a king
I used to scheme of treasure that money could bring
But now I met an angel without any wings
Now my heart beats with a rhythm that sings

I used to dream of diamonds and rubies and gold
I believed all the stories of riches untold
Heaven couldn’t help me with all of those things
But now I met an angel without any wings

Where did you come from to make my heart sing
What can I do so I don’t wake from this dream
You must be the treasure I wanted to hoard
You must be the dream that I’ve waited for

I used to dream of castles and being a king
I used to scheme of treasure that money could bring
But now I met an angel without any wings
Now my heart beats with a rhythm that sings

I used to dream of diamonds and rubies and gold
I believed all the stories of riches untold
Heaven couldn’t help me with all of those things
But now I met an angel without any wings
Heaven couldn’t help me with all of those things
But now I met an angel without any wings


Melelana, Island Belle (09/25/2002) (#343)

Beams from shooting stars will light your wedding gown
Rainbows in your hair will be your princess crown
Spring is just ahead and I can foretell
Melelana, my Melelana I can tell
You will be the island belle

When the wedding bells begin to ring
For you and me in the spring
All the islands will be happy as well
Melelana, my Melelana I can tell
You will be the island belle

I’ll buy some moonbeams to light up the show
You’ll be a dream everywhere we go
Island folks will call you mademoiselle
Melelana, my Melelana I can tell
You will be the island belle

For your neck a lovely pearl necklace strand
Folks will say Aloha when we’re strolling hand in hand
You sure are lovely and you wear it well
Melelana, my Melelana I can tell
You will be the island belle

Wedding bells will ring for me and you
Something tells me that you want it too
Spring is just ahead and I can foretell
Melelana, my Melelana I can tell
You will be the island belle
Melelana, my Melelana I can tell
You will be the island belle


Beautiful Are My Dreams (09/25/2002) (#344)

She was beautiful, in love we were
She was so beautiful like blue of skies
From that day when I first saw her
She was an angel in my eyes

She was so lovely, so lovely to behold
She was so warm just to hold
The islands were always like the time of spring
But now they’re blue like winter’s cold

Why did she not tell me truthfully
I couldn’t see, love blinded me
I trusted her with my heart endlessly
Now I’m an island by myself, just me

Yes, she was beautiful, I remember
Now the sun has gone, it’s december
But knowing her was beautiful you see
Oh, I wish that she was still in love with me

Now our love is over and all gone
Even tradewinds blow cold in this tropic zone
But my love for her will help to carry on
Beautiful are my dreams of her ’til every dawn

She was so lovely, so lovely to behold
She was so warm just to hold
The islands were always like the time of spring
But now they’re blue like winter’s cold

Yes, she was beautiful, I remember
Now the sun has gone, it’s december
But knowing her was beautiful you see
Oh, I wish that she was still in love with me

Now our love is over and all gone
Even tradewinds blow cold in this tropic zone
But my love for her will help to carry on
Beautiful are my dreams of her ’til every dawn


Texas Two Step Hula (09/25/2002) (#345)

When I saw you dancing with that other guy
I saw you glance at me and I wondered why
Why don’t you do a Texas two step over here to me
Then you can teach me the hula baby don’t you see

You’ve danced with that other dude since the band began
Not to be rude but I saw your glance and understand
Why don’t you do a Texas two step over here and find
Time to teach me the hula baby, I won’t mind

The song is ending and I saw from you that glance at me
Time to send a notice to withdraw and come dance with me
Just do a Texas two step over here to my home place
Then you can teach me the hula baby face to face

I’m glad that other guy had to go answer the telephone
I just had to place that call to get you all alone
I saw you glance at me and you can tell I like you too
Teach me the hula baby, I’ll teach you the Texas two step hula too

The song is ending and I saw from you that glance at me
Time to send a notice to withdraw and come dance with me
Just do a Texas two step over here to my home place
Then you can teach me the hula baby face to face

I’m glad that other guy had to go answer the telephone
I just had to place that call to get you all alone
I saw you glance at me and you can tell I like you too
Teach me the hula baby, I’ll teach you the Texas two step hula too
I saw you glance at me and you can tell I like you too
Teach me the hula baby, I’ll teach you the Texas two step hula too


Isidore (09/25/2002) (#346)

Well here comes a hurricane
Isidore is its name
It tore up the Yucatan
Now it’s headed for Louisian

September 26 will see it here by six
Then we’ll all be pickin’ up sticks
From Isidore

So, get out the fiddle and the mason jar
Hurricane party ain’t ahead very far
Resin up the bow and let ‘er go
Dancin’ til the winds no longer blow

September 26 will see it here by six
Then we’ll all be pickin’ up sticks
From Isidore

Well here comes a hurricane
Isidore is its name
It tore up the Yucatan
Now it’s headed for Louisian

Well if all those levees don’t do their job
Don’t look in New Orleans for Hurricane Bob
If the Mississippi fills with a hurricane flood
New Orleans will just be Mississippi mud

So, get out the fiddle and the mason jar
Hurricane party ain’t ahead very far
Resin up the bow and let ‘er go
Dancin’ til the winds no longer blow

Hurricanes come but they all ain’t the same
Some might even fill up the Ponchatrain
Anchor all the boats in the Cajun lands
Might be all she wrote for Louisian
So, get out the fiddle and the mason jar
Hurricane party ain’t ahead very far
Resin up the bow and let ‘er go
Dancin’ til the winds no longer blow

September 26 will see it here by six
Then we’ll all be pickin’ up sticks
From Isidore


Over The Brink Of Love (09/27/2002) (#347)

You must have come on the tradewinds breeze
You have become the beauty of the seven seas
You’re the girl I think the whole world of
My heart is over the brink of love

Over the brink, the brink of love
You’re the one I think the whole world of
You’re the beauty of the seven seas
Just bring your import duty of love to me

When I look into your eyes in the tropic sun
I know that the fires of love have a chance
When you’re close I know that you’re the one
You’re my forever one and only true romance

Over the brink, the brink of love
You’re the one I think the whole world of
You’re the beauty of the seven seas
Just bring your import duty of love to me

When I feel your warm little hand in mine
It seals our love with the stamp of time
You won’t need a hurricane lamp to find
Tradewinds blew me over the brink of love

Over the brink, the brink of love
You’re the one I think the whole world of
You’re the beauty of the seven seas
Just bring your import duty of love to me
You’re the one I think the whole world of
I’m over the brink, the brink of love


Veil Of Dreams (09/27/2002) (#348)

I thought love was just an embryonic cell
Not enough to go around it seemed
I’m glad you saw right through that veil
Just enough to become my island dream

Veil of love, veil of dreams
Now you’ve come and I can see
Through the misty dark thereof
Through the veil of dreams there is love

You grew quickly into pages of my life
With a click you’re now my home page site
Surfing with you every night and day
I see love growing that’s bound to stay

I always heard islands were like paradise
Until you came they were shrouded in mist
You lifted the veil and to my surprise
Behind the veil was the dream I had missed

Veil of love, veil of dreams
Now you’ve come and I can see
Through the misty dark thereof
Through the veil of dreams there is love

Veil of love, veil of dreams
Now you’ve come and I can see
Through the misty dark thereof
Through the veil of dreams there is love
Through the veil of dreams there is love


Weaver Of Dreams (09/27/2002) (#349)

Do you hear those guitar sounds
There’s island music all around
Come with me and let’s go down
To the dance at Old Lahaina Town

The wind of love is in the air
We can romance away all our cares
With you and me in love it seems
This island is a weaver of dreams

Weaver of dreams, dream weaver
Tidewater of love you bring
Weaver of dreams, dream weaver
Weave a song of love for me

Do you hear those sweet island sounds
There’s love enough to go around
Put your dancin’ shoes and leave
Your cares behind and romance with me

Weaver of dreams, dream weaver
Tidewater of love you bring
Weaver of dreams, dream weaver
Weave a song of love for me

Do you hear those guitar sounds
There’s island music all around
Come with me and let’s go down
To the dance at Old Lahaina Town

The wind of love is in the air
We can romance away all our cares
With you and me in love it seems
This island is a weaver of dreams

Weaver of dreams, dream weaver
Tidewater of love you bring
Weaver of dreams, dream weaver
Weave a song of love for me
Weaver of dreams, dream weaver
Weave a song of love for me
Weave a song of love for me


Three Hundred Fifty (09/28/2002) (#350)

Three hundred fifty days
Almost a year has passed
Dreams of you are all that stayed
And tears will surely last

Where did our love go wrong
After lasting for so long
Winds of trade have traded you
And your love to someone new

Three hundred fifty days
Let me count again the ways
That I always treated you
With love that was always true

Three hundred fifty days
Almost a year has passed
Dreams of you are all that stayed
And tears will surely last

Our love had grown so strong
I thought we would always carry on
I just knew you would never roam
Someone new must have come along

Three hundred fifty days
Let me count again the ways
That I always treated you
With love that was always true

Three hundred fifty days
Almost a year has passed
Dreams of you are all that stayed
And tears will surely last
Dreams of you are all that stayed
After three hundred fifty days
Three hundred fifty days


Cowboy Dreams (09/28/2002) (#351)

You can probably tell when I talk
A cowboy’s dream is all I brought
And you can tell by the way I walk
Back in the saddle is where I ought to be

But this dream I brought is now brand new
Now that I have at last found you
Here in Hawaii where the skies are blue
Where even cowboy dreams come true

This cowboy’s dream kept my hopes alive
When it seemed I couldn’t cope or survive
I hope you can tell when I talk
That this cowboy will always walk his talk

A cowboy’s dream is all I brought
You’re an island queen was my first thought
The way you handled that outrigger paddle
I’ll just trade in my boots and saddle

Well I was feeling low but not anymore
I found my dream on a distant shore
A cowboy’s dream is all I brought
You must be the dream that I sought

Wearing barefoot soles instead of boots
Going for strolls instead of rodeo chutes
I found a cowboy’s dream on a distant shore
You’re not just a distant dream anymore

This cowboy’s dream kept my hopes alive
When it seemed I couldn’t cope or survive
Here in Hawaii where the skies are blue
Where even cowboy dreams come true
Even cowboy dreams come true


A Ton Of Miles (09/28/2002) (#352)

I would walk a ton of miles
Just to see your sunny smile
And I would do it all again
Your sweet love for me to gain

I would circle all the wagons close
Around your island hitching post
To protect our love until
Our vows of love we both fulfill

Words of love may come and go
But love for you will only grow
Like the clear blue ocean skies
Over islands of paradise

You will see a ton of smiles
On my face once in a while
Like every day I think of you
And the love you show me too

Today is when I would like to say
Tomorrow begins a brand new day
For your love and sunny smile
We’ll walk through life those tons of miles

I would walk a ton of miles
Just to see your sunny smile
And I would do it all again
Your sweet love for me to gain
Just to see your sunny smile
I would walk a ton of miles
Walk a ton of miles


A Song So Nice (09/28/2002) (#353)

Your love is like my favorite song
I hum it as we stroll along
Hand in hand in the island sand
You make me glad I’m your island man

When I get to the chorus I sing it twice
Once for me and again for you
Your love is like a song so nice
When I get to the chorus I sing it twice

My favorite song is all about you
My favorite music is to hear you say I do
When I get to the chorus I sing it twice
Your love is like a song so nice

It only takes a few minutes of time
It’s beautiful like a Maui chime
I wouldn’t want to sing any other kind
I picture your love as a musical frame of mind

When I get to the chorus I sing it twice
Once for me and again for you
Your love is like a song so nice
When I get to the chorus I sing it twice

I hold your hand emotionally
A wedding band soon we will see
My favorite song is all about you
My favorite music is to hear you say I do

When I get to the chorus I sing it twice
Once for me and again for you
When I get to the chorus I sing it twice
Your love is like a song so nice
Your love is like a song so nice


Of Love (09/28/2002) (#354)

Soon I’ll return to my islands in the sea
Welcomed by my ohana family
Where love is real and so are we
I can feel again the harmony
Of love

Yes, I must get myself away from here
Return to my island home I hold so dear
I’ve heard that distant call throughout the years
That unwritten word recalls the cheers
Of love

Back to the islands I once knew
To sand and palms where tradewinds blew
See again my island family
And sing again those lovely songs
Of love

Where waters are warm and so are we
Daughters and sons and ohana family
And so it is and so will always be
Islands are really words for you and me
Of love

Soon I’ll return to my islands in the sea
Welcomed by my ohana family
And so it is and so will always be
Islands are really words for you and me
Of love


Plans Of Love (09/28/2002) (#355)

When you said yes I was relieved
I still find it hard to believe
But I thank the stars and moon above
Because we’re making plans of love

Years of loneliness are falling away
Like tears of only-ness of yesterday
Future plans fit like hand in glove
Because we’re making plans of love

We’re making plans for you and me
Plans for what was meant to be
Things I used to dream only of
Because we’re making plans of love

When all is said and all is done
You’ll always be my number one
In my heart you’re my beloved
Because we’re making plans of love

When you said yes I was relieved
I still find it hard to believe
But I thank the stars and moon above
Because we’re making plans of love

When all is said and all is done
You’ll always be my number one
In my heart you’re my beloved
Because we’re making plans of love


Anything For Her (09/28/2002) (#356)

How can I show her
That I care for her
Every time I see her smile
Brings sunshine to my little isle
Anything for her is all worthwhile
To show that I love her
Which I do

I would stand by her
My whole life is planned for her
Surely there will come a way
To win her love some day
Anything for her is all worthwhile
To show that I love her
Which I do

I would be a man for her
The day my world began with her
Tomorrow’s plans are all for her
Nothing will my plans deter
Anything for her is all worthwhile
To show that I love her
Which I do

Will she ever see
Can I ever be
The one to love her true
Which I do

Will she ever see
Can I ever be
The one to love her true
Which I do


Whalers (09/28/2002) (#357)

Today as I look out at the ocean
Waiting for sails to come by
Where is the future for whalers
When all the whales have all died

Yesterday they were here in abundance
Today it’s clear that most are gone
Maybe it was all the exuberance
Of not thinking, just muscle and brawn

How long will the whalers be plying
The oceans while whales ther’re denying
The future of whale pods multiplying
While whalers give nod to their facade

Today as I look up at the heavens
I see the future of whales multiply
Where is the future of whalers
When all the whalers have died

Yesterday they were here in abundance
Today it’s clear that most are gone
Maybe it was all the exuberance
Of not thinking, just muscle and brawn

Today as I look up at the heavens
I see the future of whales multiply
Where is the future of whalers
When all the whalers have died
Where is the future of whalers
When all the whalers have died


An Island Alone (09/29/2002) (#358)

In the big oceans thrive the small islands
I grew up as an island, even smaller than them
But I could away sail, islands had to stand gales
And I didn’t want to be like them

Just as a sailor needs room, and oceans to roam
So I sailed wherever I wanted to go
An island doesn’t hanker in which ocean to anchor
Or in which stream of time that they grow

All the islands I knew when into a sailor I grew
Were just palm trees and sand in an ocean of blue
There was nothing for me and nothing I knew
I needed to sail the wide oceans of blue

So I signed on alone and untied the lines
I lived the life of my dreams in places untold
An island stands there, no dreams it can share
Islands don’t have to be bold

Years I spent at the mast in big oceans vast
In places so foreign to me
I never anchored long, tradewinds played my song
And islands couldn’t hold a sailor like me

I sailed with the gales, caught whales and heard tales
The wind in my sails always blew
I’m an island it seems, in the time and the streams
I’m alone in the oceans of blue


No Longer Mine (09/29/2002) (#359)

I seem to have lost my love on the island
The one in the middle of the sea
A friend said she left for the mainland
I wonder where she happens to be

If I were a sea eagle I would follow
To look for her new residing place
I would try to find out if her sighing
Is still for me or for a new face

I seem to have lost my love on the island
She painted my rainbows for me
But now the sunshine turned to crying
My rainbows she just doesn’t see

When the nighttime has come over the island
And the stars all come out to shine
In the moonlight I will be crying
My island love is no longer mine

I seem to have lost my love on the island
The one in the middle of the sea
A friend said she left for the mainland
I wonder where she happens to be

When the nighttime has come over the island
And the stars all come out to shine
In the moonlight I will be crying
My island love is no longer mine
In the moonlight I will be crying
My island love is no longer mine


Gone Are The Times (09/29/2002) (#360)

I remember islands of love in september
Whenever I lay down to sleep
I’ll be still loving you come december
But it will be when I weep
But it will be when I weep

Last night you were here to help ease my fear
No longer was I alone in the stream
But then I awoke and it’s painfully clear
That you are now just a dream
That you are now just a dream

Days are just days and endless to me
They stream by the island in time
Gone are the times of your loving me
When I could still call you mine
When I could still call you mine

I remember islands of love in september
Whenever I lay down to sleep
I’ll be still loving you come december
But it will be when I weep
But it will be when I weep

Days are just days and endless to me
They stream by the island in time
Gone are the times of your loving me
When I could still call you mine
When I could still call you mine


Yellow Island Blossom (09/29/2002) (#361)

There’s a yellow island blossom
Growing in the island sand
There it grows for you my love
When I ask from you your hand

When I bring it to you dear
Would you wear it in your hair
May love our future always steer
And may your love be always there

There’s a yellow island blossom
In your hair you placed for me
It tells of love that’s simply awesome
This love from islands in the sea

When I die and have to leave you
Never think of us apart
I would never want to grieve you
Keep this blossom in your heart

There’s a yellow island blossom
Growing in the island sand
There it grows for you my love
When I ask from you your hand

There’s a yellow island blossom
In your hair you placed for me
It tells of love that’s simply awesome
This love from islands in the sea

When I die and have to leave you
Never think of us apart
I would never want to grieve you
Keep this blossom in your heart


Forever Sing (09/29/2002) (#362)

When I saw you it was as if I had seen you
From the start
When I saw you I dreamed that I was
In your heart

Everything about you is what I wanted you to be
Everything about me is just wanting you for me
It’s as if I had dreamed of what I have seen in you
Everything I ever dreamed has all with you come true

I want to show you if I can get to know you
As my own
Please let me know if love winds blow so I won’t be
On my own

When I say to you I want to stay with you
It’s not just a plaything over time
Let me play for you a song of love for you
Let your heart forever sing with mine

When I saw you it was as if I had seen you
From the start
When I saw you I dreamed that I was
In your heart

When I say to you I want to stay with you
It’s not just a plaything over time
Let me play for you a song of love for you
Let your heart forever sing with mine
Let me play for you a song of love for you
Let your heart forever sing with mine


Love Is Not A Game (09/29/2002) (#363)

Isn’t it just wonderful when love is not a game
Instead of breaking hearts in two
Rending lives asunder in the strain
Isn’t it just wonderful when love is not a game

Whether on the mainland or on islands in the stream
Giving love and getting love
Is better than just setting blame
Isn’t it just wonderful when love is not a game

Think about it, what good is life without it
All you do is cause the pain
But if you love instead of shove
There’s so much love you stand to gain

Love can take too long if you’re an island to yourself
Love can explain the things you gain
When you think of someone else
Life is truly beautiful when you take love off the shelf

Isn’t it just wonderful when love is not a game
Instead of breaking hearts in two
Rending lives asunder in the strain
Isn’t it just wonderful when love is not a game

Whether on the mainland or on islands in the stream
Giving love and getting love
Is better than just setting blame
Isn’t it just wonderful when love is not a game


Because Of You (09/29/2002) (#364)

On my island you’re the key and more
You opened up for me love’s door
I’m not an island in a sea of blue
Because of you

Because of you I no longer quake
From nights of dreams that only break
My love of life has been renewed
Because of you

Before you came I can still recall
Clouds with rain and thunder too
Somehow I survived them all
Because of you

Because of you the bluebirds sing
Harbingers of love in spring
From lonely heart to now a king
Bacause of you

On my island you’re the key and more
You opened up for me love’s door
I’m not an island in a sea of blue
Because of you

Because of you the bluebirds sing
Harbingers of love in spring
From lonely heart to now a king
Because of you


Veil Of Tears (09/29/2002) (#365)

Isles of love are meant for happy times
So why are you still blue
Times of the past should just be memories
The pain that time amassed is through

Let me help you dry your tears
My love can help them disappear
So now it’s time to bring your smile
From behind your veil of tears

Isles of love are blessed by the sun
Try to suppress what’s already done
And let me fill your empty heart with cheer
From behind your veil of tears

Now I know it’s hard to see
How happy times could come again
But if your heart will look at me
You’ll see the love we can attain

Isles of love have taught to me
That life is not all that it appears
Let me share your love for eternity
From behind your veil of tears

Isles of love have taught to me
That life is not all that it appears
Let me share your love for eternity
From behind your veil of tears


Beyond Compare (09/29/2002) (#366)

When I first saw you sitting there
I couldn’t help but stare
Your beauty rhymes with beyond compare
And there’s no better time to say I think you are
Beyond compare

I’ve searched around for many years
I’ve seen smiles and I’ve seen tears
But when I saw you sitting there
The yellow ginger lei in your hair was
Beyond compare

Beyond compare, made me stare
Your beauty rhymes with beyond compare

My life was just a fog
And rain washed away my gains
My heart pointed you out like a good bird dog
You just washed away my pains
Beyond compare

Love sometimes comes and then it goes
But when I saw you sitting there I already know
That I could love you through the years
My love for you appears to be
Beyond compare

Beyond compare, made me stare
Your beauty rhymes with beyond compare

Love sometimes comes and then it goes
But when I saw you sitting there I already know
That I could love you through the years
My love for you appears to be
Beyond compare


Islands Are Made For Love (09/30/2002) (#367)

Islands are made for just one thing
Wedding vows and wedding rings
Two love birds building their nest
Islands are made for love

You see it all the time all over the isle
People in love walking down the aisle
For her he walked that country mile
Islands are made for love

Islands are made for love
Endless parade thereof
Whatever you’re thinkin’ of
Islands are made for love

When lovebirds are in their prime
Tryin’ to pay down the credit card on time
They just live on what they know the most of
Islands are made for love

If they’re old and out of tune
Just remember that sweet day in June
When he and she strolled under the moon
On the front porch swing they still commune
Islands are made for love

Islands are made for love
Endless parade thereof
Whatever you’re thinkin’ of
Islands are made for love
Islands are made for love


Send Me Back (09/30/2002) (#368)

Well I finally got off the island
The mainland life was calling me
Traded my bare feet for cowboy boots
Went to see Texas and Tennessee
Went to see Texas and Tennessee

It didn’t take long for me to see
Texas was bigger than Tennessee
It didn’t take long for me to see
Neither state of mind took the island out of me
Neither state of mind took the island out of me

Send me back to Old Lahaina Town
Texas and Tennessee gets me down
This mainland life just makes me frown
Send me back to Old Lahaina Town
Send me back to Old Lahaina Town

I met a girl I thought I could love
But her jet set world made a monkey of
Me and my money that didn’t last
Just get me to my home town island fast
Just get me to my home town island fast

It didn’t take long for me to see
Texas was bigger than Tennessee
It didn’t take long for me to see
Neither state of mind took the island out of me
Neither state of mind took the island out of me

Send me back to Old Lahaina Town
Texas and Tennessee gets me down
This mainland life just makes me frown
Send me back to Old Lahaina Town
Send me back to Old Lahaina Town

Polynesian Cohesion (09/30/2002) (#369)

When I saw the twinkle in your polynesian eyes
It was cohesion as you ironed the wrinkles from my life
I said I wouldn’t tell you lies or make you sad
Your smile would spell the reason why my heart was glad

I held your hand in mine and then I asked you please
Would you marry me if I kneeled on bended knees
I held my breath and wondered if I said it wrong
You said ’til death us part you and I would sing along

Polynesian cohesion, you and I will sing along
Polynesian cohesion, we’ll stick together as we sing love’s song

When I saw the twinkle in your polynesian eyes
I heard the music of some island lullabies
You can rock me in your arms and iron the wrinkles from my life
Cause I’ll love you forever and I wouldn’t tell you lies

When I saw the twinkle in your polynesian eyes
It was cohesion as you ironed the wrinkles from my life
I said I wouldn’t tell you lies or make you sad
Your smile would spell the reason why my heart was glad

I held your hand in mine and then I asked you please
Would you marry me if I kneeled on bended knees
I held my breath and wondered if I said it wrong
You said ’til death us part you and I would sing along

Polynesian cohesion, you and I will sing along
Polynesian cohesion, we’ll stick together as we sing love’s song


Hearts In Rhythm (09/30/2002) (#370)

If your heart beats all by itself
You’re just an island to yourself
Even in Hawaii you’re still blue
Rainbows there don’t shine for you
Glad this song’s for you, not for me

Now if we reverse this melody
Someone can take your pulse you see
Her love will turn your skies to blue
You love her and she loves you
I think I’ll keep this song for me

When the sun sets and you’re alone
Don’t mean much in the tropic zone
You can sing a song or hum along
But you can’t dance if you’re all alone
You might as well go on home

But if two hearts beat in rhythm time
They sound just like yours and mine
We sing songs that we dance to
Texas two step and the hula too
You love me and I sure love you

When the sun sets and you’re alone
Don’t mean much in the tropic zone
You can sing a song or hum along
But you can’t dance if you’re all alone
You might as well go on home

But if two hearts beat in rhythm time
They sound just like yours and mine
We sing songs that we dance to
Texas two step and the hula too
You love me and I sure love you
Texas two step and the hula too
You love me and I sure love you


Waiting There For Me (09/30/2002) (#371)

Somewhere out there in the vast blue sea
On an island shore my true love waits for me
She watches ships go sailing by
Waiting for her sailor guy

Somewhere out there in the vast blue sea
My true love waits on sands of gold
She waits under a tall palm tree
I’m the sailor she wants to hold

Here I am in the middle of seas so vast
Sailing south with eyes toward islands cast
My true love waits while days go past
Our love is unsurpassed

Somewhere out there in the vast blue sea
Where the moon is full and stars shine bright
My true love is almost in sight
Waiting there for me

Where the tradewinds blow is where I know
I’ll trade my ship before again I go to sea
I’ll not see my true love’s woe
Waiting there for me

Somewhere out there in the vast blue sea
Where the moon is full and stars shine bright
My true love is almost in sight
Waiting there for me
My true love is almost in sight
Waiting there for me


Love Is An Anchor (09/30/2002) (#372)

If you’re in a desert without any means
Or in an ocean full of scuttled dreams
I would shield the sun from your eyes
Or swim the sea to save your life

Put forth your bread upon the water
Hope will not your love let totter
If all your dreams are sinking in the west
Look for an isle and love will do the rest

Love is an anchor
Holding your heart to mine
Love is an anchor
Give our love a little time
Just give our love a little time

Tradewinds of love whisper softly
When hearts hear, they understand
Your love and mine will grow above
The shallow thoughts of common man

Where you go I will follow you
Whether lands or isles of blue
Days will come when we will see
We shared the love’s destiny

Love is an anchor
Holding your heart to mine
Love is an anchor
Give our love a little time
Just give our love a little time

You and I can stand the tides of time
Love will guide the uphill climb
Anything or anywhere
We will find love there

Love is an anchor
Holding your heart to mine
Love is an anchor
Give our love a little time
Just give our love a little time
Just give our love a little time


Angel Island Love (09/30/2002) (#373)

I waited out the time like an island in the stream
While hopes and love floated by it seemed
I thought I could carry on for years
Holding on and never shedding tears
Holding on and never shedding tears

Through the dark times and the good
I thought to make it through I could
As my world was falling through
I was still waiting there for you

But, wait. What’s that I see in the sky above
Is it really coming down to me
It’s hard to perceive, but
I think it must island angel love

Island angel love, where have you been
Island angel love, will there be love again
You are what I’ve been dreaming of
You are my dream, my angel island love

I waited out the time like an island in the stream
While hopes and love floated by it seemed
I thought I could carry on for years
Holding on and never shedding tears

What’s that I see in the sky above
Is it really coming down to me
It’s hard to perceive, but
I think it must island angel love

Island angel love, where have you been
Island angel love, will there be love again
You are what I’ve been dreaming of
You are my dream, my angel island love
You are my dream, my angel island love


Lazy Island Days (09/30/2002) (#374)

Lazy island days will never bore you
If you have a love like mine living by the bay
On lazy island days I love to be near her
I whisper sweet things to her every day

She’s tall and tan and dark and lovely as they say
Under palm trees swaying gently in the breeze
We talk of plans and ways of future deeds
When we will be right here living by the bay

Lazy island days, living by the bay
We will share our love there, you will see
Our love is deeper than the ocean, deep as it can be
We will live and love here come what may

We don’t care where the road will lead us
It doesn’t matter what they say
The road of life will forever bring us
Lazy island days living by the bay

She’s tall and tan and dark and lovely as they say
Under palm trees swaying gently in the breeze
We talk of plans and ways of future deeds
When we will be right here living by the bay

We don’t care where the road will lead us
It doesn’t matter what they say
The road of life will forever bring us
Lazy island days living by the bay
The road of life will forever bring us
Lazy island days living by the bay


Moon And Sun (10/01/2002) (#375)

Many tropic moons have come and gone
Many golden suns to paint the evening skies
You and I still sing our favorite island songs
It can only be the bond that love supplies

Can you remember back to the very start
When our love was a brand new work of art
We knew this love would never fall apart
You’re still a masterpiece deep in my heart

Here comes another tropic moon on the rise
Side by side we both now realize
We haven’t said goodbye, never even cried
Though many suns have painted evening skies

We’re not the kind for lengthy conversations
Both of us are quiet and kind of shy
But love speaks volumes on occasions
Just by the look of love that’s in our eyes

Now we still stroll hand in hand together
Down the beach under deep blue skies
Our love is still that brand new work of art, dear
Under moon and sun in this our paradise
Our love is still that brand new work of art, dear
Under moon and sun in this our paradise


Surprise Love (10/01/2002) (#376)

A love story can be as old as time is old
But it can be as true blue as blue can be
We were just friends before but time broke the mold
Now we’re as much in love as love can be

Was it just a change in seasons or the heart
Must have been some reasons from the start
I didn’t see it coming but you must have had the key
Our love is the same old story new as it can be

Our love is not the same old game
Two loves can never be the same
This new one took me by surprise
Even in this lover’s island paradise

A love story can be as old as time is old
But it’s a new song every time it’s sung
I didn’t see it coming but you must have had the key
Our love is the same old story new as it can be

Was it just a change in seasons or the heart
Must have been some reasons from the start
We were just friends before but time broke the mold
Now we’re as much in love as love can be

Our love is not the same old game
Two loves can never be the same
This new one took me by surprise
Even in this lover’s island paradise
This new one took me by surprise
Even in this lover’s island paradise


Blue Without You (10/01/2002) (#377)

Blue Hawaii will be blue without you
I don’t know if I can make it without you
Sunsets of gold and palm trees of green
Have all turned blue instead of serene
Hawaii will be blue without you

Listen to those steel guitar notes so blue
They’re calling me back to you
And golden moonbeams have turned to blue
I lost the love I thought was true
Hawaii will be blue without you

Now that those blue tradewinds are blowing
I can feel the warm love we had is going
I wish you the best though you’re not in sight
But I’ll be blue most every day and night
Hawaii will be blue without you

Listen to those steel guitar notes so blue
They’re calling me back to you
And golden moonbeams have turned to blue
I lost the love I thought was true
Hawaii will be blue without you

Now that those blue tradewinds are blowing
I can feel the warm love we had is going
I wish you the best though you’re not in sight
But I’ll be blue most every day and night
Hawaii will be blue without you
I’m already blue without you

On this night so beautiful
Stars are twinkling dutiful
This is not a night for chance
This night is made for dance
Made for love and our romance

The love I have I give to you
I’ll take a chance you love me too
Even though it’s not by chance
That I just want to dance with you
I just want to dance with you

Night so beautiful, night so dutiful
Thank your moon and stars for sharing our romance

On this night so beautiful
The moon is shining dutiful
Beams of love are coming through

This night of love so true

Night so beautiful, night so dutiful
Thank your moon and stars for sharing our romance

Majestic Love (10/01/2002) (#379)

Islands always laugh because they never die
Love will never die and never will it cry
You look at me and then I realize
You’re the reason why my love will never die

When you look at me I can always see
The purpose of my life comes from majesty
Majestic love is true just like mine for you
Love will never die because our love is true

Islands always laugh because they never die
Islands shower love from their majestic skies
I was searching for someone to share my dream
You came along with love’s majestic scheme

Here we have fun in the sun and the night
We laugh and love because it is so right
You look at me and then I realize
You’re the reason why my love will never die

Islands always laugh because they never die
Love will never die and never will it cry
You look at me and then I realize
You’re the reason why my love will never die

The purpose of my life comes from majesty
Majestic love is true just like mine for you
Love will never die because our love is true
Majestic love is true just like mine for you
Love will never die because our love is true


Lili (10/02/2002) (#380)

Hurricane a-comin’, blowin’ with the winds
Ain’t seen nothin’ like her since I don’t know when
Lili’s comin’ through the gulf and, she’s a-blowin’ on
Lili keeps a-comin’, from dusk ’til dawn

When I turned on the TV, my mama told me, son
Lili ain’t no good girl, she’s a blowin son of a gun
Always board those shutters, she ain’t blowin’ just for fun
But I threw a party, just to dance ’til dawn

When I seen that storm a-comin’, I grabbed my fiddle and played
Well I guess there’s smart folks, headin’ far away
They’re prob’ly watchin’ TV, watchin’ my house drown
But I knew she was a-comin’, she blowed my house clear down

That silly Lili keeps a-blowin, all the way to Tennessee
I think she’s a-comin’, after me
Well, if I ever live to tell it, if I ever do survive
If I ever have another party, Miss Lili I won’t invite

I’d move a little farther, inland from Vermillion Bay
Far from Hurricane Lili, that’s where I want to stay
And I’d play my fiddle, dance those hurricanes away
Far from Hurricane Lili, dance those hurricanes away


Leilani Of Mine (10/02/2002) (#381)

Leilani of mine, your sweet lips taste like wine
You make my heart beat in overtime
I don’t think I can deny it
Livin’ on your love would be my fav’rite diet

Leilani of mine, I’m the shoulder you can lean on
When we get older you’re the one I’ll still be keen on
You and I are just like two birds of a feather
With my bird of paradise I’ll always stay together

See that golden moon shining in the sky
You and I will soon be defining paradise
You make my heart beat in overtime
You’re my love, you’re my life, Leilani of mine

You made the walls of my heart tumble down
My fall for you was the talk of the town
Let’s put this song in writing for all time
A wedding dress and ring I’ll buy, Leilani of mine

See that golden moon shining in the sky
You and I will soon be defining paradise
You make my heart beat in overtime
You’re my love, you’re my life, Leilani of mine

You made the walls of my heart tumble down
My fall for you was the talk of the town
Let’s put this song in writing for all time
A wedding dress and ring I’ll buy, Leilani of mine
Let’s put this song in writing for all time
A wedding dress and ring I’ll buy, Leilani of mine


Island Dancing Queen (10/02/2002) (#382)

When you do that island dance you look so alive
When you dance you make me have the time of my life
You’re the prettiest girl in the whole island scene
You must be the island dancing queen

It’s Saturday night and the tiki torches are all aglow
Waikiki is the place where you really steal the show
You must be the island dancing queen
I’ll be right there if you’re looking for a king

I’ve got you in my heart and I threw away the key
The music and the night are young and so are we
Waikiki is fine, you’re all mine, and so let’s dance
You’re the prettiest girl and it’s time for romance

You must be the island dancing queen by far
Swaying to the rhythm of those steel guitars
When the ukeleles play you make me sway
Let’s come dance again on another Saturday

It’s Saturday night and the tiki torches are all aglow
Waikiki is the place where you really steal the show
You must be the island dancing queen
I’ll be right there if you’re looking for a king

I’ve got you in my heart and I threw away the key
The music and the night are young and so are we
Waikiki is fine, you’re all mine, and so let’s dance
You’re the prettiest girl and it’s time for romance
Waikiki is fine, you’re all mine, and so let’s dance
You’re the prettiest girl and it’s time for romance


Paradise Eyes (10/02/2002) (#383)

I hope you’re not just teasing me
If you are what can I do
When I look into your eyes
I see paradise in you

You’re never blue, that I can see
Your eyes just laugh all the time
My heart is not just partially
Partly falling in love with you full time

A part of me wants to see
How paradise with you can be
So let’s dance and relate
How you fit me to a tee

Take it easy, take it slow
On island time it’s just past go
We’ve got time to apprise
Our future in paradise

Let’s play it cool ’til it’s red hot
Then we’ll tie that lover’s knot
We’ll spend our future in paradise
The one I see in your eyes

A part of me wants to see
How paradise with you can be
So let’s dance and relate
How you fit me to a tee

Take it easy, take it slow
On island time it’s just past go
We’ve got time to apprise
Our future in paradise

Let’s play it cool ’til it’s red hot
Then we’ll tie that lover’s knot
We’ll spend our future in paradise
The one I see in your eyes


Song To Sing (10/02/2002) (#384)

I dreamed a dream of paradise
It was like a song to sing
For the future it would suffice
I knew I could handle anything

It was just an island in the stream
But it had the beauty of a fairy tale
It was about the love you bring
And our love would never fail

A song to sing, a dream of paradise
I dreamed a dream like a song to sing of paradise

You were like an angel of the islands
Beautiful as a dream can be
More than just an island in the stream
An island angel in my dream

A song to sing, a dream of paradise
I dreamed a dream like a song to sing of paradise

I dreamed a dream like a fantasy
Now that you’re here, it’s reality
For you I would swim another mile
To an island dream to see you smile

I dreamed a dream of paradise
It was like a song to sing
For the future it would suffice
I knew I could handle anything

You were like an angel of the islands
Beautiful as a dream can be
More than just an island in the stream
An island angel in my dream

A song to sing, a dream of paradise
I dreamed a dream like a song to sing of paradise


To Dreams Disappeared (10/03/2002) (#385)

Goodbye my darling, goodbye my love
The islands we lived on have drifted apart
Your dream was mine but mine was colored blue
May your dream be realized, your dream come true

Goodbye my sweetheart, somewhere in the stream
Think of me sometimes, somewhere in your dreams
I’ll drift with the current and with the low tide
Goodbye my darling, with you may love reside

Goodbye my darling, I’ll miss those happy years
May all your horizons and islands bring cheer
And may all your tomorrows by love be steered
Goodbye my sweetheart, to dreams disappeared

Your dream was mine but mine was colored blue
May your dream be realized, your dream come true
Goodbye my sweetheart, somewhere in the stream
Think of me sometimes, somewhere in your dreams

Goodbye my darling, I’ll miss those happy years
May all your horizons and islands bring cheer
And may all your tomorrows by love be steered
Goodbye my sweetheart, to dreams disappeared


You Left A Lot Of Love (10/05/2002) (#386)

You left a lot of love right beside
This right-hearted heart of mine
You could have left your love outside
But that wouldn’t be the right place or time
You left a lot of right things
Right when my hope had left and gone

Well, you left a lot of love right in this heart of mine
I thought that love had left but you were right on time
With the little time that’s left
You can show me how to do it right
There’s still a lot of moonlight left
And it’s shining down right on time
Yes, you left a lot of love right in this heart of mine

When I left the mainland, I left it way behind
I was right about one thing, your love was right on time
You’re the island beauty I’ve been thinkin’ of
The only thing left for me was to fall right in love

Well, you left a lot of love right in this heart of mine
I thought that love had left but you were right on time
When I left the mainland, I left it way behind
I was right about one thing, your love was right on time
You’re the island beauty I’ve been thinkin’ of
The only thing left for me was to fall right in love

I thought that love had left but you were right on time
You left a lot of love right in this heart of mine
I thought that love had left but you were right on time
You left a lot of love right in this heart of mine


Leilani Be Mine (10/05/2002) (#387)

The night is young and the moon is gold
We have the island stars above to behold
Listen with care to what they say
Tonight for you I wish and pray
The answer is drifting on the tropic breeze
The wind whispers love through the swaying trees
Tonight, be mine Leilani

When we dance and I hold you close
My heart knows the joy that it chose
I love you and it’s plain to see
How my heart responds to your company
I loved you from the very start
May your sweet love from me never part
Tonight, be mine Leilani

Be my darling, be my love
Be mine alone under stars above
While the moon is shining bright
Leilani be mine tonight

The night is young and the moon is gold
We have the island stars above to behold
Listen with care to what they say
Tonight for you I wish and pray
The answer is drifting on the tropic breeze
The wind whispers love through the swaying trees
Tonight, be mine Leilani

Be my darling, be my love
Be mine alone under stars above
While the moon is shining bright
Leilani be mine tonight

Dance And Romance (10/05/2002) (#389)

I see you dancing island girl
You’re making my Hawaii blue
My heart and head are in a whirl
You’re romancing with somebody new

Dance and romance Island girl
You know what you’ve done is wrong
That other guy is holding you too tight
While those guitars play our favorite song

I can’t help watching as you dance
But if it must be
I’ll just keep watching you romance
And wishing it were me

Dance and romance island girl
You should have told me from the start
Dance and romance island girl
Though you’re gone you’ll still be in my heart

I can’t help watching as you dance

Island Kisses (10/05/2002) (#390)

Island kisses, oh your kisses
Sweetest kisses, yes your kisses
They are something mysterious
Makes me delirious

When those island ukuleles play
The moon above comes out to say
Hold her close and you will see
What moonlit kisses were meant to be

I just want you to know
I think I just love you so
Say Aloha to stars above
Island kisses mean Aloha love

The way you dance so close like this
Makes me want one more island kiss
By the time we dance across the floor
Maybe I can have a few kisses more

Island kisses, oh your kisses
Sweetest kisses, yes your kisses
They are something mysterious
Makes me delirious
I’m simply serious about your
Island kisses!


Love And Island Melodies (10/05/2002) (#391)

After years away I stopped and looked around
I was finally back home in Old Lahaina Town
As I walked along the shore and smelled the air
I could hear ukeleles and guitars playing everywhere

No bands were there but the music was real to me
Island music has always been in my heart you see
It was in these islands where I fell in love
When I was away here is where I dreamed of

In my heart there is a feeling
The music in my heart is reeling
Through the palms the tradewinds breezy
Old Lahaina Town is where my heart is easy

And so the music that I hear keeps playing on
I could listen from the start until the dawn
It’s like birds of paradise up in the trees
Are singing songs of love and island melodies

In my heart there is a feeling
The music in my heart is reeling
Through the palms the tradewinds breezy
Old Lahaina Town is where my heart is easy

And so the music that I hear keeps playing on
I could listen from the start until the dawn
It’s like birds of paradise up in the trees
Are singing songs of love and island melodies


Truly Island Love (10/06/2002) (#392)

When the young folks talk of island love
The old folks just call it puppy love
My heart is young and this I know
My heart says she’s my island love

The old folks just call it puppy love
They’re too old or have not seen
Love like ours is from above
Love like ours is truly island love

We sigh when the night stars are falling
We kiss when the moon is calling
Our hearts beat together when we’re together
Our love will brave all stormy weather

How can we let them know
Our love is not just a show
It’s not just a puppy love
Love like ours is truly island love

We sigh when the night stars are falling
We kiss when the moon is calling
Our hearts beat together when we’re together
Our love will brave all stormy weather

How can we let them know
Our love is not just a show
It’s not just a puppy love
Love like ours is truly island love
Love like ours is truly island love


Foolishly In Love (10/06/2002) (#393)

When you lay your head on my arm tonight
And we wish upon a star so bright
Let the tradewinds whisper in your ear
I want your love always to be near

When you put your lips on mine
Your kiss is the same as sweetest wine
When we kiss like this the moon above
Shines to light our lamp of love

Some people say that love’s a game for fools
Don’t rush in since you will only lose
But fools don’t know the rules thereof
If I’m a fool, with you I’m foolishly in love

When you put your lips on mine
Your kiss is the same as sweetest wine
When we kiss like this the moon above
Shines to light our lamp of love

Some people say that love’s a game for fools
Don’t rush in since you will only lose
But fools don’t know the rules thereof
If I’m a fool, with you I’m foolishly in love
Fools don’t know the rules thereof
With you I’m foolishly in love


My Love My Love (10/06/2002) (#394)

Let me dance with you in my arms
You can romance me with your many charms
Tell me, tell me, tell me true
If I can forever just love you

Dance with and romance with me so
So much I’ll never ever let you go
Feel my arms around you nice and tight
Be my love, my love, my love tonight

Forever dance within my heart
Like violins and island steel guitars
The moon says yes and so too the stars
My island love is what you are

Dance with me, romance me with your love
Let me wish upon the stars above
Fill my heart with love’s sweet melody
Be my love through all eternity

Forever dance within my heart
Like violins and island steel guitars
The moon says yes and so too the stars
My island love is what you are

Dance with and romance with me so
So much I’ll never ever let you go
Feel my arms around you nice and tight
Be my love, my love, my love tonight
Feel my arms around you nice and tight
Be my love, my love, my love tonight

You bring to me happiness
For you my life is blessed
Your love is everything to me

Gears Of Love (10/06/2002) (#396)

Islands in the sun never change their gears
That’s where you’ll find love through the years
Best of all you don’t even have to try
Island love will be around both day and night

Tonight’s the night I know I’ll fall in love
All I have to do is wish on stars above
I can feel that love is everywhere
It’s in the tropic breeze in the island air

My love and I together have found something new
She and I would rather spend our life here too
Islands in the sun never change their gears
She and I will love right on through the years

Here it’s such an easy thing to fall in love
The pace is slow, not just push and shove
Island days are made to make love grow
Let me make my love on you bestow

Tonight’s the night I know I’ll fall in love
All I have to do is wish on stars above
I can feel that love is everywhere
It’s in the tropic breeze in the island air

My love and I together have found something new
She and I would rather spend our life here too
Islands in the sun never change their gears
She and I will love right on through the years
Islands in the sun never change their gears
She and I will love right on through the years


Perfect Personality (10/06/2002) (#397)

I tried to call you on the island telephone line
The operator said you would not be home on time
That was news to me and I can’t believe it’s true
But if it is then I don’t know what I’ll do

Last night you wouldn’t with your romance be free
You woudn’t hold my hand or dance with me
The book of love says that’s not the way it ought to be
I need a nurse to come and give me lots of TLC

I ask myself why I should bother with you
You only want to take my love and make me blue
Other island girls have come and gone like you
I guess they don’t enjoy my perfect personality

We used to stroll along the beach at night
Now I’m strolling solo ’cause you’re out of sight
I used to think that you and I were playing it cool
Now I know that you were playing me the fool

Last night you wouldn’t with your romance be free
You woudn’t hold my hand or dance with me
The book of love says that’s not the way it ought to be
I need a nurse to come and give me lots of TLC

I ask myself why I should bother with you
You only want to take my love and make me blue
Other island girls have come and gone like you
I guess they don’t enjoy my perfect personality
Other island girls have come and gone like you
I guess they don’t enjoy my perfect personality


Never Til The End (10/06/2002) (#398)

Will there ever come a time
When island stars forget to shine
Never til the end of time
Never til the end

Will your heart stop beating with mine
Would I ever make you cry
Never til the end of time
Never til the end

Do you think that I could ever spend
One day away from you
And let love lie
That would be never in a thousand lives

Never til the end of time
Never til the end

Will I ever stop reminding you
That today our love is new
Never til the end of time
Never til the end

Will there ever come a time
When island stars forget to shine
Will your heart stop beating with mine
Would I ever make you cry

Never til the end of time
Never til the end

Will I ever stop reminding you
That today our love is new
Never til the end of time
Never til the end


Island Of Beauty (10/06/2002) (#399)

Hey, Aloha there
You with the flower in your hair
Would you be my island girl, my love
You’re the girl I want to hold

Hey, Aloha there
You with the starlight in your eyes
You must be an angel in disguise
You’re the girl for me

Hawaii, island of love
Island of beauty that I see
Thank you for bringing to me
Someone to share my dreams

Hey, Aloha there
You on this isle of love so fair
I want to tell you that I care
I’ll love you endlessly

Hey, Aloha there
You with the flower in your hair
Would you be my island girl, my love
You’re the girl I want to hold

Hawaii, island of love
Island of beauty that I see
Thank you for bringing to me
Someone to share my dreams
Island of beauty that I see
Thank you for bringing her to me


Four Hundred (10/06/2002) (#400)

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

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

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

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