Sunshine (Larry W. Jones 10/06/2002) (song#401)

When she wakes me and I hold her in the morn
I know our love this day is just reborn
Then she smiles at me and says my name
She’s the sunshine through my window pane

The way she laughs and how she cries
Tells me that she has no disguise
The way she cares, and how she shares
Shows the beauty of her loving care

She fills my life with ecstasy
That means more than life, her love I see
Fame and wealth could not compare
With this love that we both share

When I look around and love is sure
I know love like ours will endure
Like islands in the stream of time
Ours will let love flow, her’s and mine

When I look around and love is sure
I know love like ours will endure
Like islands in the stream of time
Ours will let love flow, her’s and mine


Baby True (Larry W. Jones 10/06/2002) (song#402)

I don’t mean to brag
But my island girl said I love you
No, I don’t mean to brag
But I know she’ll always be true

Well, feel the tradewinds blowing love my way
My polynesian baby makes me feel this way
I know it’s not just maybe
That she’ll be my island baby true

I dont mean to brag
But my island girl is beauty to behold
No, I don’t mean to brag
But my love for her I can’t withold

Well, she’s the reason why I love Hawaii blue
Simply said, she said I love you
And I know her love is true
She’s my island love, my baby true

I don’t mean to brag
But my island girl said I love you
No, I don’t mean to brag
But I know she’ll always be true

Well, she’s the reason why I love Hawaii blue
Simply said, she said I love you
And I know her love is true
She’s my island love, my baby true


Tradewinds Told Me So (Larry W. Jones 10/07/2002) (song#403)

I know that you love me
Because the tradewinds told me so
I know that you love me
By the way love shows

I can clearly see
The look of love from you to me
The value of your sweet love is majesty

You know I want you
I love to tell you so
I would never make you cry
Or never ever say goodbye

I can clearly see
The look of love from you to me
The value of your sweet love is majesty

I love the good times that we’ve had
Even the blue times when we were sad
Time with you is heaven sent
Not a day would I lament

I know that you love me
Because the tradewinds told me so
I know that you love me
By the way love shows

I can clearly see
The look of love from you to me
The value of your sweet love is majesty


For Dear Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 10/07/2002) (song#404)

Listen close to that far off singing
From islands in the distant sea
Hear the music from sea shells ringing
From shores of peaceful islands, these

Blue are the skies just as is the ocean
High are the mountains’ majestic sight
Tradewinds play with palm trees motion
And bring the songs of love’s delight

From afar I hear my islands call to me
Lands I have seen but now I must return
My islands there have heard my plea
For dear Hawaii my heart does ever burn

Hear the ocean boom against the reef
Beauty there is almost beyond belief
Watch the shorebirds in that tropic zone
From my islands may I never roam

Blue are the skies just as is the ocean
High are the mountains’ majestic sight
Tradewinds play with palm trees motion
And bring the songs of love’s delight

From afar I hear my islands call to me
Lands I have seen but now I must return
My islands there have heard my plea
For dear Hawaii my heart does ever burn


Breath Of Love (Larry W. Jones 10/07/2002) (song#405)

Here is the breath of love softly breathing
So gentle and so sweetly from the start
When it touches me it is so pleasing
This breath of love that warms my heart

You, my love, share with me these tender moments
While tradewinds whisper love upon this isle

Here is the breath of love softly breathing
Like the gentle rain in Palolo valley
May there never be, my love, a finale
Of this breath of love that warms my heart

Here is the fragrance of the tuberose
Like a cool, soft breeze it lingers close
Soft winds have brought your love to me
Warming me with gentle feelings, these

You, my love, share with me these tender moments
While tradewinds whisper love upon this isle

Here is the breath of love softly breathing
Birds of paradise have taken wing
Bringing again the breath of love to find me
Warmed by your voice my heart does sing
Bringing again the breath of love to find me
Warmed by your voice my heart does sing


Heart Of Molokai (Larry W. Jones 10/07/2002) (song#406)

The island of Molokai knows no strangers
She welcomes you with love and open heart
Come and see the solitude of Wailau
Her misty rain will beauty to you impart

Give ear to the power of the Molokai sea
Walk the dunes along the verdant hills
Kainalu is a place on earth for love to be
With perfumed lipoa scent may be you filled

There is no end to the beauty of Kalaupapa
Molokai welcomes you with open heart
When you come you will say Aloha ‘aha
Be not a stranger to this paradise afar

Come and see the solitude of Wailau
Her misty rain will beauty to you impart
The island of Molokai knows no strangers
She welcomes you with love and open heart
Molokai knows no strangers
Come to her and bring your heart


Akaka Falls Legend (Larry W. Jones 10/07/2002) (song#407)

Akaka lived beside the waterfall
So says the legend of renown
From high above the cliffs so tall
The water flowed gently down
The water flowed gently down

Kiha his cousin offended him
Over the falls he was condemned
The red-brown pohaku stone still lays
At the bottom of Akaka falls today
At the bottom of Akaka falls today

Akaka was a rascal kolohe god
Over friends he ran roughshod
His kanewahini wife found him alone
With Lehua and Maile as his own
With Lehua and Maile as his own

With his ilio dog he ran close to the edge
Slipped and fell into Kiha’s grave
Ilio and kanewahini turned into stone
For his actions then he did atone
For his actions then he did atone

Lehua and Maile’s future would be grief
For Akaka they both would forever weep
Both Akaka’s lovers became little waterfalls
Tears today they still shed at Akaka falls
Tears today they still shed at Akaka falls


Mokihana Mele (Larry W. Jones 10/07/2002) (song#408)

My thoughts return again to you, my love
My sweetheart, I cherish you tonight
Of love for you are my thoughts thereof
You alone are my heart’s delight

So beautiful and lovely a dream are you
In wonder I glance as you lie in view
Entwined with fragrant mokihana sweet
You bring to my life your love complete

None there are to compare with you
With beauty of angels are you imbued
Like the maile blossom fresh with dew
Each night will we our love renew

Let the mele be told as though brand new
My sweetheart I hold my heart for you
So cherished this night and for all time
Sheltered with you in love sublime


Dreams Upon The Sea (Larry W. Jones 10/08/2002) (song#409)

Rolling are the dreams on this moonlit night
Coming like the waves gently on the shore
My heart speaks of love both true and bright
Our love is new and it is you whom I adore

Enchanting is your love like stars above
Moonlit rendezvous of dreams and love
Your sweet melody this night is pleasing me
Like the rolling of the dreams upon the sea

Here under swaying coco palms with you
I see dreams of tropic beauty coming true
Listen as the curling waves roll on and on
So too will be our love with each new dawn

The rhythm of Hawaiian steel guitars
Bring music for our dreams of love
The yellow moon and brightly shining stars
Give blessings from the heavens up above

Enchanting is your love like stars above
Moonlit rendezvous of dreams and love
Your sweet melody this night is pleasing me
Like the rolling of the dreams upon the sea
Like the rolling of the dreams upon the sea


Blessed Kauai (Larry W. Jones 10/08/2002) (song#410)

An island blessed there is that I must see
Lovely is this garden island in the sea
To me she calls again with majesty
Beautiful Kauai, lovely garden in the sea

Feel the misty cool Fern Grotto dew
There time and nature quiet and alone
The waterfalls of Wailua daily do renew
Childhood places where I used to roam

Many are the places where I played
Beauty everywhere like Hanalei bay
Most of all is the beauty from above
My dear family and their ohana love

Soon to this my isle shall I return
To my Kauai, garden island in the sea
For her does my heart tenderly yearn
In Kauai is where my love waits for me


Beyond The Moonlight (Larry W. Jones 10/08/2002) (song#)

Beyond the moonlight
Where the shadows hide my heart
My dreams are in the twilight
Fading as my love departs

Tears I will shed I know
Loneliness will come my way
Memories will only grow
Til my love returns some day

A thousand stars may light the sky
But winds of love have passed me by
My broken heart within will groan
For my love has gone

Until the day my love returns
In twilight will live my dreams
As my heart does yearn
Beyond the moonlight


September Ginger Lei (Larry W. Jones 10/08/2002) (song#412)

Many are the things that I remember
The yellow dress you wore that september
The blossom of the fragrant tuberose
How the wind through your hair flows

In your hair was a yellow ginger lei
A most memorable night
We strolled along the sand
Beneath the yellow moon’s soft light

The tradewinds for us were softly blowing
It was like the winds of love were knowing

Many are the things that I remember
That time in each other’s arms we spent
It was in sweet september
Your kiss was from heaven sent

Yes, it was in that sweet september
And in my mind will always stay
Many things that I remember
Like your yellow ginger lei


Girl Of Golden Dreams (Larry W. Jones 10/08/2002) (song#413)

In a little seaside cafe, not by plans
In Old Lahaina Town by island sands
Something in my life is new it seems
There was Leilani, island girl of dreams

Suddenly guitars played love songs
I heard the tradewinds sing along
An angel from heaven drifted down
To be mine in Old Lahaina Town

My life will never be the same
Sweet Leilani is her name
I held her in my arms that day
In that Old Lahaina Town cafe

There is where my happiness began
In that seaside cafe by island sands
An angel from heaven drifted down
To be mine in Old Lahaina Town
Leilani, island girl of dreams
Leilani, my girl of golden dreams


I Ride To The Rio (Larry W. Jones 10/08/2002) (song#414)

I ride to the Rio, across the river grand
There I will find peace that only I understand
The trails we have traveled led us afar
Now they must end for she’s made her choice

I ride to the Rio, along with my dreams
It was I she released, an isle in the stream
When three hearts are beating the same love song
Only two can survive while one stands alone

O where can I go, what can I do
You have the one whom my heart loves too
My heart is weary with this heavy load
Ahead is the river, the Rio, and old Mexico

I ride to the Rio, across the river grand
My life will be empty but I understand
I ride to the Rio to obey love’s command
It is you she has chosen and given her hand

I ride to the Rio, along with my dreams
It was I she released, an isle in the stream
When three hearts are beating the same love song
Only two can survive while one stands alone

I ride to the Rio, across the river grand
There I will find peace that only I understand
I ride to the Rio to obey love’s command
It is you she has chosen and given her hand


Under Swaying Palms (Larry W. Jones 10/08/2002) (song#415)

Hawaii is the isle of which singers sing of
This isle of golden dreams where there is love
Where birds of paradise sing for you and me
There is where our romantic fling will be

Under swaying palms waving in the breeze
I hear ukuleles calling from the sea
We’ll find a sandy beach and cottage for two
And I’ll find the time each day to say I love you

When the moon is out and we’re about
We’ll dance until the wee hours of the night
When I hold you in my arms there is no doubt
That you will always be my heart’s delight

Those palm trees will be welcoming us
Hawaii is a paradise, that you can trust
What I’m saying is trustworthy and true
Love is in Hawaii for me and you

Under swaying palms waving in the breeze
I hear ukuleles calling from the sea
We’ll find a sandy beach and cottage for two
And I’ll find the time each day to say I love you


A New Flower Lei (Larry W. Jones 10/08/2002) (song#416)

All the flowers have faded
In my lei this day
Happy hours have traded
Place with my dismay

Yellow ginger and roses
Have fallen apart
Like the love that I once
Had in my heart

When will you return
From the sea where you’ve gone
You know I will yearn
For you all alone

I beg you return to Hawaii
My dear
Be again my love and dry
My tears

Someone else may come along
But it’s only you I’ll think of
I’ll still be singing our song
When you bring back your love

All the flowers have faded
In my lei this day
For you, tomorrow I will make
A new flower lei


In Our Hawaii Blue (Larry W. Jones 10/08/2002) (song#417)

Underneath the stars
We’re dancing with delight
There’s no wonder that you are
A dream come true tonight

A vision passes by
Like fireflies in the night
Your loveliness is why
Stars shine with their light

In your eyes I see the love
That Aloha means and more
You’re an angel from above
My island love whom I adore

Underneath the stars
As we dance this heavenly night
We sway to sweet guitars
As I hold you O so tight

As I hold you in my arms
And whisper I love you
I don’t need some lucky charm
n our Hawaii blue


Winds Of Trade (Larry W. Jones 10/08/2002) (song#418)

Where the winds of trade there gently blow
Branches of the palms wave high above
There the winds of trade bring afterglow
And the setting of the sun, rainbows of love

Where the winds of trade there gently blow
Bring this song of love to my true love
Tradewinds then please whisper in her ear
Words of love I know she wants to hear

Where the winds of trade there gently blow
My love has said that she’d be mine
There I will all my love on her bestow
Our love will last until the end of time

Where the winds of trade there gently blow
To Hawaii’s shores and to my love I will go
Each night beneath the stars and moon above
Forever I will give to her my love

Where the winds of trade there gently blow
To Hawaii’s shores and to my love I will go
Each night beneath the stars and moon above
Forever I will give to her my love


Yesterday’s Souvenier (Larry W. Jones 10/08/2002) (song#419)

A treasure I have kept for many years
I guess it’s now just a souvenier
A post card from Hawaii I received that day
Yesterday when you went away

Every time I open up that old picture book
I always know just where to look
The pages are all worn since that first day
Yesterday when you went away

The envelope still has a faint perfume
Reminds me of that day we met in June
Hawaii was our isle of tropic fantasy
I’ve kissed you time again in my agony

Somehow some day you will understand
How deep was my love for you in Aloha land
A post card from Hawaii I received that day
Yesterday when you went away

A treasure I have kept for many years
I guess it’s now just a souvenier
A post card from Hawaii I received that day
Yesterday when you went away


Another Yellow Ginger Lei (Larry W. Jones 10/08/2002) (song#420)

It’s such sweet sorrow each time we say goodbye
In a few tomorrows I’ll return so please don’t cry
Take this island souveneir, this yellow ginger lei
And let it remind you of my love while I’m away

This yellow ginger lei will remind you of Hawaii blue
Please wear it gingerly and think of me and you
Though I’ll be far away I’ll return soon some day
And in Hawaii blue I’ll buy another yellow ginger lei

With this string of flowers I will shower love on you
Please wear this yellow ginger lei if you feel blue
Anywhere on earth or on another island in the sea
Let this yellow ginger lei remind of our sweet love to be

It’s such sweet sorrow each time we say goodbye
In a few tomorrows I’ll return so please don’t cry
Though I’ll be far away I’ll return soon some day
And in Hawaii blue I’ll buy another yellow ginger lei


Beauty Of Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 10/08/2002) (song#421)

I sit and listen to the notes from the ukulele
And hum along to the music of the steel guitar
Just by myself tonight I watch the moonlight
And smile to myself and wish upon a star

Here the daytime sky is blue just like the ocean
Clouds of beauty wrap around the mountain peaks
Waves crash upon the reef like jewels in motion
With songs of love the balmy tradewind speaks

Green mountain valleys welcome rain from the storm
Rainbows shine their love when the sun is reborn
Through the lofty trees fly the birds of paradise
No wonder I smile for such beauty has no price

When you dance the hula with arms raised to Hawaii
You will sing from your heart her praise meant to be
Take but a moment and listen to eternity
The beauty of Hawaii is here for you and me


Call Of Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 10/09/2002) (song#422)

The call of Hawaii is a melody of love
She calls to me when her I’m thinking of
This isle across the sea each day as twilight falls
Serenades the lovers at Waikiki as I recall

The sand and the surf merge together endlessly
How I recall the urge to sing there by the sea
I wish I could be with you there in the moonlight
Hand in hand in the sand with you, dear tonight

The call of Hawaii pulls at the strings of my heart
The same way when I was with you sweetheart
When you dream be sure to dream one for me
I will answer the call and my love I will see

The call of Hawaii pulls at the strings of my heart
The same way when I was with you sweetheart
When you dream be sure to dream one for me
I will answer the call and my love I will see


Don’t Cry Polynesian Eyes (Larry W. Jones 10/09/2002) (song#423)

In the dim fading twilight
I see in my mind bright
Polynesian eyes are crying
Tears, though out of sight

Polynesian eyes, please don’t cry
Remember those years of happy times
You and I shared dreams and love in our prime
Please don’t cry, Polynesian eyes

Do you think of me, Polynesian eyes
Is your love still as true as then in paradise
What must I do, our love to renew as yesterday
You know I miss you so in these skies of gray

In the dim fading twilight
I see in my mind bright
Polynesian eyes are crying
Tears, though out of sight

Polynesian eyes, please don’t cry
Remember those years of happy times
You and I shared dreams and love in our prime
Please don’t cry, Polynesian eyes
Please don’t cry, Polynesian eyes


Polynesian Eyes Of Love (Larry W. Jones 10/09/2002) (song#424)

Polynesian eyes of love
I see in your eyes the starlight from above
Are you an angel from the realms therof
Or an earthly angel with a dream of love

Here with you at the beach at Waikiki
Where lovers sigh and island guitars play
In your Polynesian eyes of love I see
Dreamy words of love that only lovers say

Polynesian eyes of love
Under palm trees carressed by winds of trade
Holding you in my arms I have love’s law obeyed
Polynesian eyes of love

Here with you at the beach at Waikiki
Where lovers sigh and island guitars play
In your Polynesian eyes of love I see
Dreamy words of love that only lovers say

Polynesian eyes of love
Under palm trees carressed by winds of trade
Holding you in my arms I have love’s law obeyed
Polynesian eyes of love


A Month Of Sundays (Larry W. Jones 10/10/2002) (song#425)

It’s been a month of Sundays since I’ve heard from you
I’ve been as blue as Mondays crying over you
When you left you didn’t even say adieu
O, when will come that day when I get over you

It’s been a month of Sundays since I heard you say
You would give me love until your dying day
Well that day has come but it’s not your demise
My broken heart has died in this island paradise

When you left I thought that I could follow you
But you were deaf to my plea to come back home
Every day is lonesome and my life is hollow too
How can I own someone who loves to roam

It’s been a month of Sundays of me missing you
I’ve been blue as Mondays from not kissing you
Please come back and bring a day of sun with you
For a month of Sundays I’m still in love with you

It’s been a month of Sundays since I heard you say
You would give me love until your dying day
Well that day has come but it’s not your demise
My broken heart has died in this island paradise

It’s been a month of Sundays of me missing you
I’ve been blue as Mondays from not kissing you
Please come back and bring a day of sun with you
For a month of Sundays I’m still in love with you


Anchor In Life’s Stream (Larry W. Jones 10/12/2002) (song#426)

Your golden rainbows give me reason to linger
You’re a special place to dream in a tropic zone
To count all your blessings I run out of fingers
To your shores many lovers you have drawn

You spread wings of Aloha for the lonely
A shelter from storm tossed waves you are
An anchor in life’s stream, not for just a few only
Hawaii calls to me with guitars, moon and stars

A breath of fresh air and soft meditation
I found you in time to renew my dreams
You soothe my soul with flowers and sun
Hawaii showed to me what Aloha means

You spread wings of Aloha for the lonely
A shelter from storm tossed waves you are
An anchor in life’s stream, not for just a few only
Hawaii calls to me with guitars, moon and stars
An anchor in life’s stream, not for just a few only
Hawaii calls to me with guitars, moon and stars


Love In The Island Sun (Larry W. Jones 10/13/2002) (song#427)

I’ll never tarry on the mainland
I’ll never tarry from the shore
I have the love of my pretty hula maiden
I could never ask for one thing more

And I’m just an island boy
A dream I have won
I’ve got my pretty hula maiden
Love in the island sun
Love in the island sun

I have kissed the sweetest lips
Of the prettiest island girl around
One day I’ll ask her to marry me
Here in Old Lahaina Town

And I’m just an island boy
A dream I have won
I’ve got my pretty hula maiden
Love in the island sun
Love in the island sun

I could never dream of leaving
Her loving heart she has given
All that I could ever dream of
I have found in her sweet love

And I’m just an island boy
A dream I have won
I’ve got my pretty hula maiden
Love in the island sun
Love in the island sun


Never The Same (Larry W. Jones 10/13/2002) (song#428)

I’ll write in my book of island dreams
Love is not always what it seems
Don’t be concerned if I seem a little blue
In time I’m sure I’ll get over you

A change of pace will do you good
I’ll save face and say I understood
I’ll write in my book of island dreams
It’s OK to just be an island in the stream

But I know I’ll never be the same
My broken heart has lost it’s island flame
Someone else may my heart try to claim
But I know I’ll never be the same

I’ll write in my book of island dreams
Love sometimes dies from hurtful schemes
So I let you slip the line and drift away
To sail your ship in time to sunny days

So you live your dreams and I’ll live mine
And if we should cross again in the stream of time
I’ll just say Aloha and hope you’re doing fine
If there are tears I’m sure they will all be mine

But I know I’ll never be the same
My broken heart has lost it’s island flame
Someone else may my heart try to claim
But I know I’ll never be the same


Island Time Dreaming (Larry W. Jones 10/13/2002) (song#429)

I left Hawaii just to paddle my canoe
To all those places I heard of but never knew
On the mainland, California was the place to be
California dreaming called out to me

My island girl said I was crazy in the head
My daddy said don’t forget the island from where you fled
Now I had to make the most of it
With my California coast travel kit

Dreaming of island time
Scheming my returning time
Found out I couldn’t make the most
On that sunny California coast
Dreaming of island time

When I got off the plane in L.A.X.
I found Hollywood dreams were too complex
I knew I had to paddle my canoe
Back to the islands from which I flew

California dreaming was not not for me
I had to get back to my islands in the sea
Santa Monica freeway won’t give you time
To dream of island time

Dreaming of island time
Scheming my returning time
Found out I couldn’t make the most
On that sunny California coast
Dreaming of island time
Dreaming of island time


Skies Royal Blue (Larry W. Jones 10/13/2002) (song#430)

Just to know that you are here
Makes the bad times disappear
Makes it all so very clear
My love, it is all so very true
You color my skies royal blue

A rainbow of love you bring to me
Heaven above must have known my need
To you, my love I must imbue
You color my skies royal blue

Your little loving deeds come just in time
Your love exceeds a high mountain climb
Each day I live for your loving arms
And I live for your loving arms

As long as there is a day, to you my love I give
Each day with you, my love, my heart will live
So each day I live I ask of you
Color my skies royal blue
Color my skies royal blue


Dreams Filled Up With You (Larry W. Jones 10/13/2002) (song#431)

I’m dreaming still, but now it’s reality
I’m dreaming still, but it’s another locality
This time it’s real instead of unreality
Hawaii brought me dreams filled up with you

My love on the mainland proved untrue
My heart was slain and so I moved to where the skies are blue
Even though it rains the sun is shining through
Hawaii brought me dreams filled up with you

No more searching, no more lurching like I’m blind
I’m now researching birds of paradise in flight
What I’ve found to be precise is love that’s true
Hawaii brought me dreams filled up with you

I’m dreaming still, but now it’s reality
I’m dreaming still, but it’s another locality
This time it’s real instead of unreality
Hawaii brought me dreams filled up with you

No more searching, no more lurching like I’m blind
I’m now researching birds of paradise in flight
What I’ve found to be precise is love that’s true
Hawaii brought me dreams filled up with you


Chores To Do (Larry W. Jones 10/13/2002) (song#432)

I’ve got a list of chores to do since you said goodbye
I know I won’t be bored but I’m not sure I’ll be fine
It’s just that gettin’ started is the hardest thing to do
Ever since we parted I find my heart still thinks of you

I’ve got to paddle my canoe and think of you
My mind is rattled when I review what’s really true
I’ve got to take it on the chin and be a man
As these tears begin to fall in this island sand

I’ve got to sweep the cottage floor like you used to do
Then I’ll weep and walk the floor and sing the blues
I’ve got to find the pieces of my dream that blew away
I’ve got to wind my clock back to before you went away

I’ve got a list of chores to do since you said goodbye
I know I won’t be bored but I’m not sure I’ll be fine
It’s just that gettin’ started is the hardest thing to do
Ever since we parted I find my heart still thinks of you

I’ve got to paddle my canoe and think of you
My mind is rattled when I review what’s really true
I’ve got to take it on the chin and be a man
As these tears begin to fall in this island sand
I’ve got to take it on the chin and be a man
As these tears begin to fall in this island sand


Sailing Against The Wind (Larry W. Jones 10/13/2002) (song#433)

I’ve got credit cards and money to spend
Got my boat to sail and play around in
But since you left, I find that love is spread real thin
I think I’m just sailing against the wind

I still sail on the weekends with the club
And we all drink blue Hawaiis at the pub
But I think you made my life a sunken sub
I think I’m just sailing against the wind

Without your love I’m just a salty dog
My ship of dreams is lost somewhere in the fog
So I’ll just write here in my captain’s log
I think I’m just sailing against the wind

Without your love I’m just an island by myself
When push came to shove I needed lots of help
You helped yourself and left me on the mend
I think I’m just sailing against the wind

Without your love I’m just a salty dog
My ship of dreams is lost somewhere in the fog
So I’ll just write here in my captain’s log
I think I’m just sailing against the wind
Yeah, I’m just sailing against the wind


Because Your Love (Larry W. Jones 10/13/2002) (song#434)

When I look into your eyes I see love that’s deep
When I kiss your lips I’m yours to love and keep
You’re the thrill that sends that tingle up my spine
Jack and Jill didn’t fall as far as my heart fell this time
Because your love is fine

When I say that I need you, you know it’s true
Every day I concede that my love grows for you
There’s nothing missing, no need for fishing around
The lips I’m kissing keeps my feet off of the ground
Because your love I’ve found

It’s true that when I say my love for you is strong
For you it’s been the dream I’ve dreamed so long
It’s like a violin that seems to play on and on
Love songs for two from night until the dawn
Because your love I’ve known

It’s true that when I say my love for you is strong
For you it’s been the dream I’ve dreamed so long
It’s like a violin that seems to play on and on
Love songs for two from night until the dawn
Because your love is fine
Because your love I’ve found
Because your love I’ve known


Opposites Attract (Larry W. Jones 10/14/2002) (song#435)

It doesn’t matter whether the world is flat or round
Or even if whatever goes up never comes down
Opposites attract and that’s what matters the most
Whether you’re in Hawaii and I’m on the coast

If the world were flat instead of being round
We would love each other with our feet flat on the ground
If there’s something up that never comes down
It would be our happiness that never could frown

Opposites attract just like your love and mine
If black were white and white were black
We would stay awake in the dark nighttime
Love away the day in our little gress shack

It doesn’t matter whether the world is flat or round
Or even if whatever goes up never comes down
Opposites attract and that’s what matters the most
Whether you’re in Hawaii and I’m on the coast

Opposites attract just like your love and mine
If black were white and white were black
We would stay awake in the dark nighttime
Love away the day in our little gress shack
Opposites attract a lot in our little grass shack


She’s My Dream (Larry W. Jones 10/14/2002) (song#436)

You ain’t nothin’ but a dreamer, a schemer
You’re dreamin’ about that island girl who’s mine
Well listen buddy, you’re nutty
If you think she would ever fall for your fishing line
She’s my dream, she’s mine

You ain’t nothin’ but a searcher, a lurker
You’re searchin’ for ways to steal her island love from me
Well listen buddy, you’re nutty
If you think she would ever make a deal to flee
She’s my dream, you see

You ain’t nothin’ but a hoper, a joker
You’re hopin’ to rope a filly when I’m gone
Well listen buddy, you’re nutty
If you think I’ll lose this island love she has shone
She’s my dream, my own

You can keep on dreamin’, and schemin’ alone
But you’ll never get this island dream I call my own
You can keep on searchin’ and hopin’ elsewhere
The love we have is ours alone, I swear
She’s my dream, I really care
The love we have is ours alone, I swear
She’s my dream, I really care


You’re All Romance (Larry W. Jones 10/14/2002) (song#437)

Ooh You’re an island joy
Pineapples and poi
Hips for a hula dance
Tan and lean, island queen
You’re all romance

You’re lei blossoms and pearls
An island girl
I think I’ll take a chance
Tan and lean, island queen
You’re all romance

You’re a beauty, island cutie
Your lips are like island passion fruit
You did that hula dance, I took a chance
Now you’re my island romance

You swayed under the palms, into my arms
Made me glad I took a chance
Tan and lean, island queen
You’re all romance

You’re a beauty, island cutie
Your lips are like island passion fruit
You did that hula dance, I took a chance
Now you’re my island romance

You swayed under the palms, into my arms
Made me glad I took a chance
Tan and lean, island queen
You’re all romance
Tan and lean, island queen
You’re all romance


Our Love Will Be (Larry W. Jones 10/14/2002) (song#438)

Your island love came to be
The best thing that my heart ever did see
When I needed you, I was just a lonely, little boy blue
I needed you, yes I needed you

Your island love came to be
A surprise that at first I didn’t see
But your heart sang a song to mine, a reprise, an island melody
It’s you I prize, your love I highly prize

My darling, some say that love is just for show
And that it won’t really grow
But ours will grow up to the sky and down in the sea
Our love will be, always will be

The only thing I want in this wide world around
Is the love that you give and the joy that I’ve found
When I needed you, I was just a lonely, little boy blue
I needed you, yes I needed you

My darling, some say that love is just for show
And that it won’t really grow
But ours will grow up to the sky and down in the sea
Our love will be, our love always will be


Down To The Shore (Larry W. Jones 10/14/2002) (song#439)

In the night when the full moon is on the rise
After twilight when the island prepares to sleep
I go down to the shore, to the shore of paradise
There I have a date, an appointment to keep

Alone in my memories I stroll along the shore
For here is where my love will return some day
In this full moonlit night I remember one day more
It was here where my love, my life sailed away

Where are the kisses I have missed and arms to hold
My heart is in an abyss and the tropic nights are cold
In the moonlight your picture appears, so very near
But my arms have nothing to hold and you disappear

In the night when the full moon is on the rise
You are gone and I know I’m alone in paradise
What the ocean has claimed will never return
I go down to the shore for my heart to yearn

In the night when the full moon is on the rise
You are gone and I know I’m alone in paradise
What the ocean has claimed will never return
I go down to the shore for my heart to yearn


Summer Love Song Gone (Larry W. Jones 10/14/2002) (song#440)

Too late sweetheart, well the summer’s gone
Too soon sweetheart, our island love has flown
Our autumn parting brought a brand new season
The sadness seems to me to be love’s treason
Birds of paradise want to know the reason you’re gone

Is it you or is it just the month of september
That makes me stay awake at night to remember
Sweet things I hear you say just like the other day
When island music played our songs the same way
But now I only live each day to call your name

Too late sweetheart, there’s only clouds to see
Too soon sweetheart, your love is gone from me
The summer’s gone, our island love has flown
All that remains is just this summer love song
The summer’s gone, our island love has flown

Too late sweetheart, there’s only clouds to see
Too soon sweetheart, your love is gone from me
The summer’s gone, our island love has flown
All that remains is just this summer love song
The summer’s gone and our island love has flown
Too soon sweetheart, this summer love song


My Heart And Me (Larry W. Jones 10/14/2002) (song#441)

Well babe, you never have to see me cry
As long as I can see me in your eyes
Your love has been true blue from the start
That’s why I see me also in your heart

Love like ours is the kind that doesn’t change
Love like ours doesn’t need rearranging
I know you and I will never have to part
That’s why I see me also in your heart

I never have to wonder if you’re using me
I never have to worry about someone new
For your love I waited far to long
And for my love you said you waited for me too

I didn’t have to wait for you to make up my mind
My mind was up and gone from the starting line
That’s why I’ll never leave this island paradise
I see my heart and me in your island loving eyes

I didn’t have to wait for you to make up my mind
My mind was up and gone from the starting line
That’s why I’ll never leave this island paradise
I see my heart and me in your island loving eyes
I see my heart and me in your island loving eyes


Snow Falling Below (Larry W. Jones 10/14/2002) (song#442)

Snows of Mauna Kea are falling down below
The hearts of lovers are warmed by the summer sun
As warm as the island sand
But my island love walks in the sun with someone new I see
Now the snows of Mauna kea are starting to fall on me

Snows of Mauna Kea are falling down below
Warm lovers stroll along the sun-kissed shore
Warmed by the sun-kissed shore
My heart is frozen in time when his kisses you adore
Now the snows of Mauna kea are falling more and more

Mauna Kea snows are falling, falling can’t you see
Snows are blowing with the tropic breeze
Blowing love away from me
Tears in the sand turn white and freeze
The island sun has no summer warmth for me

Snows of Mauna Kea are falling down below
The hearts of lovers are warmed by the summer sun
As warm as the island sand
But my island love walks in the sun with someone new I see
Now the snows of Mauna kea are starting to fall on me
Snows of Mauna Kea are falling down below


O Moonlight Magic (Larry W. Jones 10/15/2002) (song#443)

The tropic sun was burnin’ and I couldn’t find a shade
I wished for moonlight magic but the moon would only fade
What was burnin’ was my heart as I remembered long ago
Moonlight kisses from the one who held my heart and then let go

Oh moonlight magic and burnin’ tropic sun
Why do you both tease me just for fun
It’s just not right to have a love and then let go
O moonlight magic, I loved that girl so

The moon was on the rise deep from within her polynesian eyes
Before I was aware I fell in love with her magic there
All too soon I saw the moonlight magic start to fade
Now the tropic sun is burnin’ and I can’t even find a shade

The moon seemed to stand still as the starlight magic fell
Soon she held my heart tightly with her moonlight magic spell
We were kissing in the moonlight but the sun would clearly show
Moonlight kisses from the one who held my heart and then let go

Oh moonlight magic and burnin’ tropic sun
Why do you both tease me just for fun
It’s just not right to have a love and then let go
O moonlight magic, I loved that girl so
It’s just not right to have a love and then let go
O moonlight magic, I loved that girl so


Where Did The Dream Of Islands Go (Larry W. Jones 10/15/2002) (song#444)

We lived on the island when I was a boy
You lived in the mountain valley, what a joy
We surfed in the waves and felt the tradewinds blow
Tell me love, where did the dream of islands go

Do you remember picnics under palms in the shade
Climbing waterfalls and other places where we played
You said your heart was mine and mine was yours, you know
Tell me love, where did the dream of islands go

Where did the dream of islands go, where did they go
Tell me love, where did the dream of islands go

Do you remember picnics under palms in the shade
Climbing waterfalls and other places where we played
You said your heart was mine and mine was yours, you know
Tell me love, where did the dream of islands go

Where did the dream of islands go, where did they go
Tell me love, where did the dream of islands go


No Morning Light (Larry W. Jones 10/15/2002) (song#445)

Since I was a young boy I worked for a dime
I just made tropical sweat in that sugar cane line
I think back to what slipped through my calloused hands
A paycheck, a dream and my youth in these island sands
In these island sands

It’s not the best way when it’s the only way you live
I had all my dreams but they had nothing to give
When the monsoon is blowing or the sun burns down bright
And the past is just dark and there’s no morning light
And there’s no morning light

I watch her in the moonlight, been working since dawn
She takes care of the kids and to me love has shone
I need to take her to town in that beat up old car
Maybe find that old dream and wish on a star
Find that old dream and wish on a star

It’s not the best way when it’s the only way you live
I had all my dreams but they had nothing to give
When the monsoon is blowing or the sun burns down bright
And the past is just dark and there’s no morning light
And the past is just dark and there’s no morning light


Another Ship, Another Ocean (Larry W. Jones 10/15/2002) (song#446)

Another ship, another ocean of heartaches
I guess it’s a sailor’s routine
Six months from my island home
In this three masted sailing machine

A fortnight I spend dreamin’ of you
When I raise the sails to the blues
My eyes are fixed on the horizon ahead
While I dream of my island home and you

Sailing this blue ocean
Between our island and me
There’s just the vast watery deep
As far as I can see

Another ocean storm, horizon out of sight
And no way to hold you this night
If I could at least say it’s alright
I could keep this dream shining bright

Sailing this blue ocean
Between our island and me
There’s just the vast watery deep
As far as I can see

Darlin’ don’t worry about this sailor’s life
Sailin’ the seas and the coast
I dream of the time I won’t leave behind
The girl my heart loves the most

Darlin’ don’t worry about this sailor’s life
Sailin’ the seas and the coast
I dream of the time I won’t leave behind
The girl my heart loves the most


Boy In Love (Larry W. Jones 10/15/2002) (song#447)

I woke up this morning with a smile on my face
I may be in love
Hawaii today is a paradise place
I may be in love with her face

I think I forgot to eat breakfast again
I’m living on love from dawn til ten
At noon I’ve gotta call that island girl I’m thinking of
Honolulu boy must be in love with love

Tonight I’ll meet my sweetheart at Kaponos
Listen to some island music and hula shows
When I kiss her lips my heart a beat skips
I’m in love with her lips

Parting is such sweet sorrow, but there’s tomorrow
When I’ll do it all over again
I’m in love and I know what this means
Tomorrow I’ll take her to see that diamond ring

Tonight I’ll meet my sweetheart at Kaponos
Listen to some island music and hula shows
When I kiss her lips my heart a beat skips
I’m in love with her lips

Parting is such sweet sorrow, but there’s tomorrow
When I’ll do it all over again
I’m in love and I know what this means
Tomorrow I’ll take her to see that diamond ring


The Party’s Over (Larry W. Jones 10/15/2002) (song#448)

The roses have wilted, the fire of love is out
I guess the party’s over and I’m without you
Don’t know what to do but there’s no doubt
Paradise will be blue without you

I think of those sweet lips that I used to kiss
The torches that lit the beach walk we loved
Now I’m an abandoned ship in darkest abyss
Tied to just words that my love walked out of

Friends thought we were the perfect twosome
Love ought not to be the reason for lonesome
I still have the locket with the golden heart charm
The time on the clock says you’re out of my arms

This island was heaven with you at one time
Then love up and flew like a victim of crime
The party’s all over and I’m without you
Paradise will be blue since you were untrue

This island was heaven with you at one time
Then love up and flew like a victim of crime
The party’s all over and I’m without you
Paradise will be blue since you were untrue


King of Kiho’alu (Larry W. Jones 10/15/2002) (song#449)

Listen to the King of Kiho’alu
Listen to that slack-key comin’ through
Listen to the King, the King of Kiho’alu

Oh how he plays Hawaiian on the strings
Oh how he makes all the islands sing
Listen to Kiho’alu of the King

From Honolulu and Waikiki
And all the islands come to see
The man who rules Hawaii it’s true
Gabby Pahinui, King of Kiho’alu

From Honolulu and Waikiki
And all the islands come to see
The man who rules Hawaii it’s true
Gabby Pahinui, King of Kiho’alu

Listen to the King of Kiho’alu
Listen to that slack-key comin’ through
Listen to the King, the King of Kiho’alu

Listen to the King of Kiho’alu
Listen to the King of Kiho’alu


On An Island Somewhere (Larry W. Jones 10/15/2002) (song#450)

I walk the beach in the early morning sun
I keep an eye out when I’m on the run
At night when I lay my dreams down to sleep
I see her face instead of counting sheep

On an island somewhere in time
I will find the love that’s true
On an island somewhere in time
My dream will become really you
On an island somewhere in time

Every tradewind that blows I see you in the wind
And with my very heart, to you my love I send
But I know I’m still blue because it’s never true
It’s not paradise when there’s only one instead of two

I walk the beach in the early morning sun
I keep an eye out when I’m on the run
At night when I lay my dreams down to sleep
I see her face instead of counting sheep

On an island somewhere in time
I will find the love that’s true
On an island somewhere in time
My dream will become really you
On an island somewhere in time


This Deep For You (Larry W. Jones 10/15/2002) (song#451)

This island romance sure has turned on me
I swore that my heart always would be free
Just one night stands and look for someone new
But now my heart has fallen deep in love with you

How could my heart fall this deep for you
I was here today but to Maui I ran into you
My heart saw love and you broke right through
How could my heart fall this deep for you

I didn’t know that Maui had such Polynesian charms
But I know you sure are pleasing in my arms
I used to break island hearts when I was cool
How could my heart fall this deep for you

How could my heart fall this deep for you
I was here today but to Maui I ran into you
My heart saw love and you broke right through
How could my heart fall this deep for you

I didn’t know but I must have loved you all along
My heart just hadn’t heard such a lovely song
Now that I’m here I love you and Maui too
How could my heart fall this deep for you

How could my heart fall this deep for you
I was here today but to Maui I ran into you
My heart saw love and you broke right through
How could my heart fall this deep for you

This deep for you
This deep for you


Waikiki Beach Feeling (Larry W. Jones 10/15/2002) (song#452)

Waikiki Beach, where the lover’s moon takes over
Dreams are there, what better place could there be
Find your dream under a palm down by the sand
Smell a yellow ginger lei and know that life is grand

Waikiki Beach is a feeling in my heart
I’m going again someday
Waikiki Beach is like a friend to me
I’m going to see
I’m going to see

Waikiki Beach, where couples become lovers
You’ll find love from Diamond Head to Ala Moana town
Whether poor or a king, it’s not about money
Love has freedom of speech at Waikiki Beach

Waikiki Beach is a feeling in my heart
I’m going again someday
Waikiki Beach is like a friend to me
I’m going to see
I’m going to see


Tell My Breaking Heart (Larry W. Jones 10/15/2002) (song#453)

Answer me from above, how did I lose her love
Answer please, from the start
What did I do to cause our island love to part
Oh please tell my breaking heart
Tell my breaking heart

Somewhere in the stream of time
She found an island new
Answer please, and please be kind
Will I always feel this blue
Will I always feel this blue

Is this love to be just a memory
What in time will be my destiny
Answer please, someone who knows
Will I find a love that grows
Will I find a love that grows

Love like ours should have never seen an end
Now my heart can never mend
Answer please if you still care
My heart will run to meet you there
My heart will run to meet you there

Answer me from above, how did I lose her love
Answer please, from the start
What did I do to cause our island love to part
Oh please tell my breaking heart
Tell my breaking heart


Candle Glow Of Love (Larry W. Jones 10/16/2002) (song#454)

On an island, even if you’re old
You can still be young and in love
Island folks always seem to know
When they see a candle glow of love

On an island, even if you’re old
Tradewinds make your troubles fly
Nothing in the world so I’ve been told
Could ever make an island cry

On an island love is in a rainbow
Starlight follows each lovely day
Dark clouds almost never show
Love is like a dream in every way

On an island, even if you’re old
You can still be young and in love
Island folks always seem to know
When they see a candle glow of love
Island folks always seem to know
When they see a candle glow of love


Whatever Happened To Love (Larry W. Jones 10/16/2002) (song#455)

I saw a star blaze across the southern sky
Lit up the Pacific with its light
Why did that star pass me by
When it blazed out of sight
When it blazed out of sight

Just over the horizon low
On an island in the sea
I know there’s rainbows’s gold
Shining there for me
Shining there for me

I dreamed a dream the other night
She sang to me a song of love
Why did that dream fade out of sight
Whatever happened to love
Whatever happened to love

I saw a star blaze across the southern sky
Lit up the Pacific with its light
Why did that star pass me by
When it blazed out of sight
Whatever happened to love
Whatever happened to love


Tradewinds Blow For Me (Larry W. Jones 10/16/2002) (song#456)

Tradewinds, blow from afar, blow for me

Tradewinds, tradewinds from afar
Blow for me from where you are
Dreams this day to last the night
Make my dreams grow big and bright

Blow over islands with your love
Bring the girl I’m dreaming of

Tradewinds, tradewinds from afar
Blow for me from where you are
Rainbows filled with love, you see
Bring my love down here to me

I feel your breeze, your breath of love
Be kind to me and send my love
Now you’re here, toward me please steer
Deep in my heart please let her peer

Tradewinds, tradewinds from afar
Blow for me from where you are
Dreams this day to last the night
Make my dreams grow big and bright

Blow over islands with your love
Bring the girl I’m dreaming of


Big Old Lonely Island (Larry W. Jones 10/16/2002) (song#457)

You think you’re a big old island in some tropic zone
I’m glad you think you can make it all alone
Just remember when you wake up by yourself
Like the lonely man whose heart sits on the shelf
You’re not big when you’re a lonely island in the stream

Lonely islands are like deserts in an ocean river plane
They feel the loss of love they will never feel again
No one is big enough to stand agains the pain
Just ask a big old lonely island in the stream
Ask a big old lonely island, just ask me

When you’re young you can laugh and play the fool
Cast away the ties that bind your love and run away
You think the future’s in your hands to desecrate
And that the ocean will bring a river of love your way
Well, ask a big old lonely fool, just ask me

Lonely islands are like deserts in an ocean river plane
They feel the loss of love they will never feel again
No one is big enough to stand agains the pain
Just ask a big old lonely island in the stream
Ask a big old lonely island, just ask me

I can tell you how it is to swim against the stream
Tradewinds blew her love from me to him it seems
Just ask a big old lonely island in the stream
Ask a big old lonely island, just ask me
Just ask me


(Larry W. Jones 10/16/2002) (song#458)

Your love is sweet as the honey of the bees
When we meet I get that sunny feel in me
You’re always here to care for any pain
Like an island song of love, a sweet refrain

It’s the same lovely island song
The meaning of my life is still just as strong
It’s the same lovely island song
You’re my queen and my wife, my island song

I get sentimental when I hear old songs of love
They remind me of the one I’m fondest of
They had you in mind when they wrote the part
The chorus where I find your love is in my heart

The times when I think back to our early island days
In that little cottage shack on the shore down by the bay
Those were happy times when life was just a song
A song that I’ve been singing in my heart for you so long

It’s the same lovely island song
The meaning of my life is still just as strong
It’s the same lovely island song
You’re my queen and my wife, my island song
It’s the same lovely island song
You’re my queen and my wife, my island song


Be My Moonlight Lady (Larry W. Jones 10/16/2002) (song#459)

If I were just an island man and you an ali’i lady
Would you stay with me in this island sand
Or would you just say maybe

If I were just a fisher man with no way to refine me
Would you wish for another man
To cast away the bindings

Sing a song for an island man and for an ali’i lady
To you I have given all my love, all my love so freely

When I’m wrinkled by the island sun and tired and hungry
Would you still feed to me your love
So I would not be lonely

If I played guitar in the park for just the coins they gave me
Could you still see stars in the dark
Be my moonlight lady

Sing a song for an island man and for an ali’i lady
To you I have given all my love, all my love so freely

If I played guitar in the park for just the coins they gave me
Could you still see stars in the dark
Be my moonlight lady
Be my moonlight lady


Dreams I Still See (Larry W. Jones 10/16/2002) (song#460)

Your eyes still beam with love that stays today
It’s the scheme of love that’s more than just mere clay
For the dreams of yesterday, today I find no sorrow
The dreams of yesterday I still see in our tomorrow

You showed love how to find a way to stay
I only know I love you more each and every day
Our love flows like an ocean stream that doesn’t pause
I see your love in all my dreams because….

For the dreams of yesterday, today I find no sorrow
The dreams of yesterday I still see in our tomorrow
It’s the scheme of love that’s more than just mere clay
Your eyes still beam with love that stays today

The way you know how to say the things you say
The little things you do that show your love today
The way you overlook my stumbles and my flaws
I see your love in all my dreams because….

For the dreams of yesterday, today I find no sorrow
The dreams of yesterday I still see in our tomorrow
The dreams of yesterday I still see in our tomorrow


Then Most Of all (Larry W. Jones 10/17/2002) (song#461)

Most of all I want to win this lover’s race
Least of all is that someone might take my place
If just the least of all my dreams come true
Then most of all I’ll be loving all of you

Most of all I dream of future happiness
It’s the least thing I can do until I know I’m blessed
If most of my best dreams do come true
Then best of all I’ll be loving all of you

There’s a reason for my sleepless nights but I don’t mind
You’re in most of all my dreams from night til morning time

Sometimes I try to sleep with one eye open
I want to see most of all my dreams of you again
If most of what I see is in the least way true
Then most of all I’ll be loving all of you

There’s a reason for my sleepless nights but I don’t mind
You’re in most of all my dreams from night til morning time

If most of what I see is in the least way true
If most of my best dreams do come true
Then most of all I’ll be loving all of you
Then most of all I’ll be loving all of you


Love Flowing Softly (Larry W. Jones 10/17/2002) (song#462)

A river of love keeps flowing like the endless sea
That river keeps love growing strong as it can be
Who is there not knowing how love can set you free
Love is flowing softly when you’re here next to me

Where else on this earth could you find Heaven’s light that glows
It’s here lying next to you in this river of love that flows

A river of love has a source must be constantly fed
To run its course to the sea of love somewhere up ahead
Like a magnetic force that draws love just like a decree
Love is flowing attractivly when you’re here next to me

A river of love doesn’t have the heartaches of disguise
I can plainly see the love that’s in your eyes
Like a king who sees that love the only lasting destiny
Love is flowing clearly when you’re here next to me

Where else on this earth could you find Heaven’s light that glows
It’s here lying next to you in this river of love that flows

A river of love keeps flowing like the endless sea
That river keeps love growing strong as it can be
Who is there not knowing how love can set you free
Love is flowing softly when you’re here next to me
Love is flowing softly when you’re here next to me


Never Stop Loving You (Larry W. Jones 10/17/2002) (song#463)

The tropic moon still knows what the night is for
The month of June is the time when weddings soar
It’s the same tune that always seems brand new
That’s why I’ll never stop loving you
I’ll never stop loving you

No mountain is big enough to hold the tradewinds as they blow
No man is strong enough to hold back love when it flows

The tides will always find their way to the shore
The endless waves know what the reef and bays are for
I always knew that your love was true
That’s why I’ll never stop loving you
I’ll never stop loving you

Sunshine paints the rainbows when the storms are through
The sky has an afterglow when the sun is setting too
I see love and laughter and a bird of paradise or two
That’s why I’ll never stop loving you
I’ll never stop loving you

No mountain is big enough to hold the tradewinds as they blow
No man is strong enough to hold back love when it flows

Sunshine paints the rainbows when the storms are through
The sky has an afterglow when the sun is setting too
I see love and laughter and a bird of paradise or two
That’s why I’ll never stop loving you
I’ll never stop loving you


My Love So True (Larry W. Jones 10/19/2002) (song#464)

Over the bay I paddled one day
A lovely island maid did I spy
With her black hair and figure so fair
A lovely vision for the eye

Said I to this vision so fair, will you marry me
She said with precision and flair, you are number two
A handsome young island man I will wed
Tomorrow he will be my lover true

Over the bay I paddled one day
Singing my island song soft and low
A lovely island maid did I spy
Down where the tradewinds softly blow

Said she, young island man I will marry you
Here by this paradise bay so blue
In my arms lies my love at last
For today she is my love so true

Over the bay I paddled one day
Singing my island song soft and low
A lovely island maid did I spy
Down where the tradewinds softly blow

Said she, young island man I will marry you
Here by this paradise bay so blue
In my arms lies my love at last
For today she is my love so true


Again Today (Larry W. Jones 10/21/2002) (song#465)

Again today, I dreamed a dream of you
Again today, my dream has made me blue
Again today, I dreamed a dream of you
And my dream still says that I love you

Yesterday I thought that I could live without you
I thought that time had taught me how to roll away the pain
But today I find that I still think about you
And it seems that yesterday was all in vain

Again today, I dreamed a dream of you
Again today, my dream has made me blue
Again today, I dreamed a dream of you
And my dream still says that I love you

Sometimes a heart can chase away the sorrow
Sometimes it can bring a new tomorrow
But at times I wonder if it’s true
This time my dreams have made me blue

Yesterday I called you my island rose
I loved you there where tradewinds softly blow
I still have those dreams I had of you
But the stream of time has changed my dreams to blue

Again today, I dreamed a dream of you
Again today, my dream has made me blue
Again today, I dreamed a dream of you
And my dream still says that I love you
Again today, I dreamed a dream of you
And my dream still says that I love you


Power Of Your Memory (Larry W. Jones 10/21/2002) (song#466)

Another island in the stream
The stream of time of countless hours
Last night I had another dream
Time won’t release me from your power

You hold my heart and life, you see
Even hold my destiny
I’m still in love with the power of your memory

Another day to be esteemed
Rays of sunlight through my front door screen
So, why are shadows on the floor
Last night I dreamed of you some more

You hold my heart and life, you see
Even hold my destiny
I’m still in love with the power of your memory

Another island day with the blues
On sunny days your dream keeps coming through
My heart weeps the tears of oceans too
You still hold my life, my dreams of you

You hold my heart and life, you see
Even hold my destiny
I’m still in love with the power of your memory

You hold my heart and life, you see
Even hold my destiny
I’m still in love with the power of your memory


Island Time Love (Larry W. Jones 10/21/2002) (song#467)

Don’t you know that island time can work things out
Things of the heart and love without a doubt
All the happy times don’t have to be all gone
Don’t be an island by yourself and all alone

Songs of the islands heal the times and heal the wrongs
Like when your love is by itself even in a throng
Give it time to find the love that’s true
She might even still be in love with you

So give island time the time to work things out
Things of the heart and love when there’s a doubt
Don’t run foolishly away from love
The dream may come that you’ve been dreaming of

Songs of the islands heal the times and heal the wrongs
Like when your love is by itself even in a throng
Give it time to find the love that’s true
She might even still be in love with you

So give island time the time to work things out
Things of the heart and love when there’s a doubt
Don’t run foolishly away from love
The dream may come that you’ve been dreaming of
Give island time the time for endless love


The Tide Has Gone (Larry W. Jones 10/21/2002) (song#468)

The tide has gone and with it you
Your ship has sailed on the oceans blue
Each day I wait at the ports of call, but…
Aloha doesn’t mean that you’ll return at all

Each day I try to think of something good
Aloha was a word I thought I understood
But memories just echo hollow in the hall
Aloha doesn’t mean that you’ll return at all

If Aloha were like it ought to be
Your ship would find its way back home to me
Your parting words were of love as I recall, but…
Aloha doesn’t mean that you’ll return at all

Each day I try to think of something good
Aloha was a word I thought I understood
But memories just echo hollow in the hall
Aloha doesn’t mean that you’ll return at all

The tide has gone and with it you
Your ship has sailed on the oceans blue
Each day I wait at the ports of call, but…
Aloha doesn’t mean that you’ll return at all
The tide has gone and with it you


Love And Islands (Larry W. Jones 10/21/2002) (song#469)

Love and islands, islands in the sea
That’s what islands are all about
Everyone you meet would somehow agree
Love and islands we can’t do without

I can see the rainbows painted in the sky
I can even feel the tradewinds if I try
I hear island music and the songs about the sea
I feel love of islands and your love for me

Love and islands, islands in the sea
That’s what islands are all about
Everyone you meet would somehow agree
Love and islands we can’t do without

Islands are for the rich and for the poor
Island love is for all hearts that need a cure
I don’t need any more than what I see
I feel love of islands and your love for me

Love and islands, islands in the sea
That’s what islands are all about
Everyone you meet would somehow agree
Love and islands we can’t do without

I can see the rainbows painted in the sky
I can even feel the tradewinds if I try
I hear island music and the songs about the sea
I feel love of islands and your love for me
Love and islands and your love for me


Ocean And The Tide (Larry W. Jones 10/21/2002) (song#470)

Before the day is through I’ve thought of you
Dreams in the day about your loving ways
I can’t wait until the day is through
So I can be with you down by the bay

We will be together, forever
Our love will never sever, whatever
We will be together like the ocean and the tide
Love like ours will never be denied

Before the day is through I’ve thought of you
I need your love like roses need the dew
When I ask for your hand on bended knee
I’ll just say that I enjoy your company

We will be together, forever
Our love will never sever, whatever
We will be together like the ocean and the tide
Love like ours will never be denied

We will be together, forever
Our love will never sever, whatever
We will be together like the ocean and the tide
Love like ours will never be denied


Photo Albumn (Larry W. Jones 10/21/2002) (song#471)

Photo albumn, times of island fun
We can reminisce of islands in the sun
Those were the days when you and I and life were free
Who would have thought our love would last eternally

Those were the days when you and I and life were free
Photo albumn, love eternally

Photo albumn, for love that never ends
Years have passed when we were only friends
Now we reminisce here on our front porch swing
Of islands in the sun and photos of our dreams

I remember our first kiss that moonlit night
The stars were out and all the world was right
We pictured how our future might turn out
Looking back, there was never any doubt

Those were the days when you and I and life were free
Photo albumn, love eternally
Photo albumn, love eternally


On Another Island (Larry W. Jones 10/22/2002) (song#472)

The ship is leaving the island and I have to go
You have someone waiting that I don’t want to know
You’re a dream here where the tradewinds blow
I wish we had met an island or two ago

In my eyes I guess you read me like a book
But I see in your eyes the same love sign
Who knows what would have been the road love took
On another island in the stream of time

Even though time will pass I know I won’t forget you
Like island sand in an hour glass that runs again
Even though it was only a moment in time we knew
That moment was a picture of what might have been

In my eyes I guess you read me like a book
But I see in your eyes the same love sign
Who knows what would have been the road love took
On another island in the stream of time

In my eyes I guess you read me like a book
But I see in your eyes the same love sign
Who knows what would have been the road love took
On another island in the stream of time


Anchor Of Our Love (Larry W. Jones 10/22/2002) (song#473)

I’m sailing on the seas again
Before the mast, back to the wind
Ahead I can see another squall
Sometimes I think I’ve seen it all

When I have to sail, it’s not just me that roams
My mind is back there with you all alone
Even when I fight those fearsome gales
I don’t lose sight of love that never fails

Our love rolls along like ocean swells
Like islands in the stream our love prevails
Even when I’m out here and you’re alone
It’s love deep in our hearts that keeps us strong

We say Aloha on the dock and on the tide
I think of you when I’m beyond the reef outside
I count the days for my return just like the stars above
You’re the anchor of my life and of our love

We say Aloha on the dock and on the tide
I think of you when I’m beyond the reef outside
I count the days for my return just like the stars above
You’re the anchor of my life and of our love


Island Love On Violins (Larry W. Jones 10/22/2002) (song#474)

Now and again life takes a crazy spin
I never thought that I your love would win
Now and again the angels of the islands smile
And tradewinds blow love on a tropic isle

There were times when I thought I could not forgive
The wrongs that came my way I thought would never leave
But now I’ve found the reason for to live
It’s your love that makes my heart no longer grieve

It’s a mystery that I can’t explain
I never thought that I your love would win
But here in this island love domain
I hear the song of island love on violins

There were times when I thought I could not forgive
The wrongs that came my way I thought would never leave
But now I’ve found the reason for to live
It’s your love that makes my heart no longer grieve

It’s a mystery that I can’t explain
I never thought that I your love would win
But here in this island love domain
I hear the song of island love on violins

It’s a mystery that I can’t explain
I never thought that I your love would win
But here in this island love domain
I hear the song of island love on violins


Tears In The Ocean (Larry W. Jones 10/22/2002) (song#475)

There are tears in the ocean and some of them are mine
Your love is back there on an island in the stream of time
Now my life doesn’t seem like it’s worth a dime
There are tears in the ocean and some of them are mine

There was a time when I thought our love was true
That was before you began your corporate climb
You left our love to drift upon the ocean blue
There are tears in the ocean and some of them are mine

Can you remember way back when I begged of you
Not to leave me all alone for someone new
Your climb to the top took mine and all your time
There are tears in the ocean and some of them are mine

Your love is back there on an island in the stream of time
Now my life doesn’t seem like it’s worth a dime
Your climb to the top took mine and all your time
There are tears in the ocean and some of them are mine


Bound To Loving You (Larry W. Jones 10/22/2002) (#476)

Why do you think I’ve been around so long
Why do you think I’ve given it some time
Do you think I might have loved you all along
Why do you think I’ve given it some time

I thought of ways to keep you out of my life
I thought of ways to keep you off my mind
But every way I thought was just a lie
You’re like the island breeze that stays here all the time

Why do you think I’ve been around so long
Why do you think I’ve given it some time
Do you think I might have loved you all along
Why do you think I’ve given it some time

Every where I go it seems like I just follow you
Like an island road that just goes round and round
Love has bestowed the one thing I can’t lose
I’m island bound and bound to loving you

Why do you think I’ve been around so long
Why do you think I’ve given it some time
Do you think I might have loved you all along
Why do you think I’ve given it some time

Every where I go it seems like I just follow you
Like an island road that just goes round and round
Love has bestowed the one thing I can’t lose
I’m island bound and bound to loving you
I’m island bound and bound to loving you


Hawaiian Delight (Larry W. Jones 10/22/2002) (song#477)

Sitting on the beach and watching island girls
Waiting for the big one in the north shore curls
Up blows a surfboard with all its might
Hawaiian surf delight!

Get the ukulele and tune up the strings
Dig your toes in the sand while the island boys sing
Dance in the sun til its out of sight
Hawaiian hula delight!

My braddah Kimo and ipo Leilani
Making time go slow down by the deep blue sea
Future sure is looking bright
Hawaiian love delight!

When the sun goes down and the moon comes up
I’ll be heading for town in my island truck
Waikiki is where they turn on the lights
Waikiki delight!

Hawaii has the beaches and the island girls
The north shore has the big ones when it comes to curls
You can play the ukulele with your toes in the sand
And love is in the future with a guitar band
Hawaii has the fun that goes out of sight
Hawaiian delight!


Love In The Stream (Larry W. Jones 10/22/2002) (song#478)

Just to know that you love me in this tropic zone
When the bad times are here and the good times have flown
Gives me the reason for the love I still find
Love in the stream and islands in time

The things that you do is why I love you so
You don’t even have to say to make it rhyme
You bring the love and island rain and the bows
Love in the stream and islands in time

You’re all I need ’cause all I need is you
Your sweet island love will never make me blue
Your kiss if I should miss would be a crime
Love in the stream and islands in time

Love is like the islands and both will never stray
Our flame of love will light the darkest night like day
Islands in the stream are there for endless time
Love in the stream and islands in time

Love is like the islands and both will never stray
Our flame of love will light the darkest night like day
Islands in the stream are there for endless time
Love in the stream and islands in time


Never For Granted (Larry W. Jones 10/22/2002) (song#479)

I would never take your love for granted
I just like being close to you
You are what makes this island enchanted
And granted, I’ll always be in love with you

When I get up to face the morning sun
I just look at you to start my day off right
And when I’m working and on the run
Just to know you’re waiting is my delight

I see love the whole island around
When I’m home it’s you my arms surround
Life with you is grand in Hawaii blue
With you all my sweet dreams do come true

I would never take your love for granted
You are what makes this island enchanted
I just look at you to start my day off right
Just to know you’re waiting is my delight

I see love the whole island around
When I’m home it’s you my arms surround
Life with you is grand in Hawaii blue
With you all my sweet dreams do come true
With you all my sweet dreams do come true


My Island Flame (Larry W. Jones 10/22/2002) (song#480)

When I found her I knew that I had found my love
I guess I can say that in flew my island turtle dove
When you see her I know that you’ll agree
She’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me

I give it all away by the way I talk
And maybe even by the way I walk on air
I don’t mind when we’re strolling and guys all gawk
As long as her love I don’t have to share

My pride is showing through but I don’t care
I’m proud to be with her anytime and anywhere

If anybody says you can’t find your own true love
Look on the other side of the island for another turtle dove
I’ve found mine and she says the same
When you see her you’ll know why she’s my island flame

I give it all away by the way I talk
And maybe even by the way I walk on air
I don’t mind when we’re strolling and guys all gawk
As long as her love I don’t have to share

My pride is showing through but I don’t care
I’m proud to be with her anytime and anywhere
I’ve found my island love and she says the same
When you see her you’ll know why she’s my island flame
She’s my island flame


Make Believe Dream (Larry W. Jones 10/22/2002) (song#481)

Make believe you’re happy even if you’re down
You don’t have to be the one to wear a frown
And you’ll find a happy end if you just make believe

Anyone can dream of big and little things
Most things aren’t so bad as you believe
You can build a dream with little things if you only make believe

A little island where the tradewinds blow your hair
A little dream that two can share
I dreamed I closed my eyes and you were there
All I had to do was make believe

And if you hear a ukulele melody
You can make believe just the same as me
The dream I make believe is mine
Makes me believe that you’ll be mine in time

A little island where the tradewinds blow your hair
A little dream that two can share
I dreamed I closed my eyes and you were there
All I had to do was make believe

And if you hear a ukulele melody
You can make believe just the same as me
The dream I make believe is mine
Makes me believe that you’ll be mine in time
Makes me believe that you’ll be mine in time


It’s Agreeable (Larry W. Jones 10/22/2002) (song#482)

It’s agreeable when I hear that you’re my island girl
It’s pleasable when I hold your squeezable hand
It’s almost unbelievable that you love only me
You’re not disagreeable when you say you understand

It’s delightable when I hear your sweet words in my ear
It’s downright excitable when I kiss your lips
Birds of paradise get flightable when they see that you’re near
It would be pleasurable to have you on my treasure ship

Love is always agreeable when dreams are seeable
And I see that you are agreeable too

It’s invitable to know that your love is right and true
It’s delightable to tell you tonight that I love you
Is it possible that you see things the way I do
It’s agreeable to see that my love agrees with you too

Love is always agreeable when dreams are seeable
And I see that you are agreeable too

It’s invitable to know that your love is right and true
It’s delightable to tell you tonight that I love you
Is it possible that you see things the way I do
It’s agreeable to see that my love agrees with you too
It’s agreeable to see that my love agrees with you too


Just The Way You Are (Larry W. Jones 10/22/2002) (song#483)

I like it when your smile makes the world seem right
I like the way your eyes reflect the island stars at night
I like to watch your hair blow in the tradewind breeze
I like the way things are with you

You say the things I like to hear you say
You sound just like an island angel should
And when I hold you on the beach down by the bay
I like the way you say it feels so good

Your lips are the only ones I want to kiss
I like it when you’re here and I don’t have to reminisce
I like the way you make me feel I’m a king
And I like to hear you say you’ll be my island queen

Your lips are the only ones I want to kiss
I like it when you’re here and I don’t have to reminisce
I like the way you make me feel I’m a king
And I like to hear you say you’ll be my island queen
I like you just the way you are


Reasons Why (Larry W. Jones 10/23/2002) (song#484)

How many reasons are there why I love you so
How many reasons are there why you’re on my mind
There’s only one and here’s the reason why it’s true
I love you and I know you love me too

Many are the reasons why I feel this way
Many reasons make me love you more than yesterday
They’re all the same and here’s the reason why it’s true
I love you and I know you love me too

Honey you’re the reason why I do the things I do
You give me every reason for a love that’s true

I don’t have to think about the time our love will end
Eternity is straight ahead, not around the bend
How many reasons are there why I love you true
I love you and I know you love me too

Honey you’re the reason why I do the things I do
You give me every reason for a love that’s true

I don’t have to think about the time our love will end
Eternity is straight ahead, not around the bend
How many reasons are there why I love you true
I love you and I know you love me too
How many reasons are there why I love you true
I love you and I know you love me too


Hawaiian Moonlight Dream (Larry W. Jones 10/23/2002) (song#485)

When the night moon is all there is
And Hawaii calls on a night like this
She says sail and come to me
Hawaiian moonlight dream so heavenly

Stroll the sand in paradise
See the starlight dancing in your eyes
See the moon upon the sea
Hawaiian moonlight dream so heavenly

Steel guitars are softly playing
Haunting notes of love are saying
Return to me, return to me
Yellow ginger flower leis
Graceful hula bodies sway
Heavenly is this, heavenly is this

May we never have to part, but if we do
We will say Aloha to each other’s heart
In the moonlight I will wait so patiently
Hawaiian moonlight dream so heavenly

May we never have to part, but if we do
We will say Aloha to each other’s heart
In the moonlight I will wait so patiently
Hawaiian moonlight dream so heavenly


Hula Kind-a Love (Larry W. Jones 10/23/2002) (song#486)

The trees were kinda palm-like in their swaying
The waves were kinda wave-like in their playing
The light was really moonlike in its madness
The stars were kinda sky-high in their heavens
The winds were kinda trade-like in their breezing
There I met a kinda lovely dream-like hula girl

I found my hula girl under palm-like trees a-swaying
I held my hula girl kinda close-like in my arms
When I said I kinda fell in love-like splendor
She kinda smiled in the moonlight with her charms

My hula girl was kind enough to make my dreams come true
I kinda like it when she says she loves me too
It was kind to say Aloha when we met dear
Love for my hula girl will kinda last a thousand years

I found my hula girl under palm-like trees a-swaying
I held my hula girl kinda close-like in my arms
When I said I kinda fell in love-like splendor
She kinda smiled in the moonlight with her charms

My hula girl was kind enough to make my dreams come true
I kinda like it when she says she loves me too
It was kind to say Aloha when we met dear
Love for my hula girl will kinda last a thousand years
Love for my hula girl will kinda last a thousand years


Golden Dreams Of Her Return (Larry W. Jones 10/23/2002) (song#487)

With the winds of trade her songs have bade me come to you
From the islands in the sea, her hula arms embrace me too
From the moonlit shore I feel her love drifting over me
I hear her sigh and see her eyes say I love you

Dreams adrift on tradewinds call me back for more
There we stroll the sand and swear our love forevermore
I held her in my arms and in my heart for but a day
When the moon is gone so is my dream that drifts away

Tradewinds please hear my plea
Recall again my dream to me
For my Hawaii I do yearn
Golden dreams of her return

Tradewinds please hear my plea
Recall again my dream to me
For my Hawaii I do yearn
Golden dreams of her return


Jamaica Trip (Larry W. Jones 10/23/2002) (song#488)

I went to Jamaica on a sailing ship
To see the sights and have a happy trip
I could not wait to get on down
To Montego Bay and Kingston town

I met a girl on the ship
Offered me some rum so I took a sip
Now is there a doctor on the ship
Who knows how to set a broken hip

I went to Jamaica on a sailing ship
To see the sights and have a happy trip

They said I filled up many a glass
Fell from the yardarm, I have no class
Now I can’t climb the mountains or swim to the shore
My bones are broke and my head is sore

I went to Jamaica on a sailing ship
To see the sights and have a happy trip

They took me ashore at Montego Bay
Said here I would stay for many a day
My heart is down because I can’t get round
From Montego Bay to Kingston town

The general elections were in full swing
The riot police were doing their thing
It was really scenic, but for one thing
The bullets above my head did sing

I went to Jamaica on a sailing ship
To see the sights and have a happy trip

Well I took the bus to Dunn’s River Falls
I did not know that was a big mistake
We raced around the curves and through pot holes
And to our destination we did not make

Don’t worry, be happy is what they say
Come back and see us some happy day
I cannot wait to get back down
To Montego Bay and Kingston town

I went to Jamaica on a sailing ship
To see the sights and have a happy trip
I could not wait to get on down
To Montego Bay and Kingston town


Huahini Moon (Larry W. Jones 10/23/2002) (song#489)

The moon of Huahini shined upon the bay
French Polynesia displayed all its charms
The moon of Huahini beams of love began to play
And you were so pleasing as I held you in my arms

Huahini moon, under stars where lovers play
Huahini moon, beams of love, a sweet bouquet
My arms held you there in the month of June
My heart was in your hands under Huahini moon

Under the moon of Huahini on that Polynesian shore
I will hold you in my arms, hearts beating more
There will shine again to light our night of love
Golden beams under the Huahini moon above

Huahini moon, under stars where lovers play
Huahini moon, beams of love, a sweet bouquet
My arms held you there in the month of June
My heart was in your hands under Huahini moon

Huahini moon, under stars where lovers play
Huahini moon, beams of love, a sweet bouquet
My arms held you there in the month of June
My heart was in your hands under Huahini moon


Polynesian Island Moon (Larry W. Jones 10/23/2002) (song#490)

In this life I roamed so wide
To have someone here by my side
Never knowing who would be
The one and only one for me

To the southern seas I wandered soon
There under a Polynesian moon
I saw the glow of love it seems
For there was you, my island dream

Tiare blossom fragrance filled the air
You brought my dream with loving care
Beams of love so kind and rare
Polynesian moon for two to share

Polynesian moon for two to share
Beams of love so kind and rare
I held you in my arms that June
Island of love, Polynesian moon
Island of love, Polynesian moon
Island of love, Polynesian moon


My Love For Evermore (Larry W. Jones 10/23/2002) (song#491)

There was moonlight, there were shadows in the night
There was the girl of my dreams I held so tight
Shadows of the night played with the moon above
A rich tableau to paint the canvas of our love

Tradewinds played a melody with the swaying bamboo tree
It was a song for you and me, a reprise meant to be
In the shadow of your smile I saw the starlight in your eyes
The moon lingered for awhile as the shadows said goodbye

Shadows in the night, moonlight shining bright
Who could ask for more
There was moonlight, there were shadows in the night
In my arms, my love for evermore

In the shadow of your smile, you did my heart beguile
Nevermore will I depart these isles of love
There in the moonlight I held you for awhile
For evermore you hold my heart and all my love

There was moonlight, there were shadows in the night
There was the girl of my dreams I held so tight
Shadows of the night played with the moon above
A rich tableau to paint the canvas of our love

Shadows in the night, moonlight shining bright
Who could ask for more
There was moonlight, there were shadows in the night
In my arms, my love for evermore
In my arms, my love for evermore


Isle Of Happy Dreams (Larry W. Jones 10/23/2002) (song#492)

Love is just an isle of happy dreams
Dreams are an island in a lovely ocean stream
Love is made of sand and islands in the sun
The sun of my sweet love my heart has won

In a peaceful ocean is where they stand
Hawaiian islands made of love and sand
They say Aloha and they love you too
I say Aloha and my dreams come true

Hawaiian islands, love and sand
Birds of paradise, wings expand
Islands of Aloha is what they say
Love is waiting for you there today

Islands of Aloha where dreams come true
Hawaii calls you there and calls me too
Isle of golden dreams for your embrace
Honolulu is a lovely gathering place

Hurry my sweet one to the island sand
Islands will greet you with a golden tan
Come my darling to the gathering place
We will share Aloha with love’s embrace

Hawaiian islands, love and sand
Birds of paradise, wings expand
Islands of Aloha is what they say
Love is waiting for you there today


My Little Waikiki Waihini (Larry W. Jones 10/23/2002) (song#493)

I would like to be down by the deep blue sea
The deep blue sea at Waikiki
I would like to be under coconut trees
With you my love, my little wahini

On the crowed beach there would just be two
On the crowed beach just me and you
I would like to stroll in the golden sand
There I would hold my little wahini’s hand

I would like to be down by the bay at night
There the stars would shine above so bright
I would like to feel my little wahini’s kiss
Waikiki would then reveal it’s lover’s bliss

On the crowed beach there would just be two
On the crowed beach just me and you
I would like to stroll in the golden sand
There I would hold my little wahini’s hand

I would like to be down by the deep blue sea
The deep blue sea at Waikiki
I would like to be under coconut trees
With you my love, my little wahini
I would like to be under coconut trees
With you my love, my little wahini


Kalakaua Avenue (Larry W. Jones 10/23/2002) (song#494)

In Waikiki there’s an avenue
Right beside the ocean of brilliant blue
I’m as homesick as I can be
Send me back to Kalakaua avenue in Waikiki

I wanna go back to my boyhood shack on Kalakaua avenue
I wanna see my friends and sing island songs by the ocean blue

Listen while the guitars play slack-key
On the beach again at Waikiki
I want to hear my family say as one
Aloha kakahiaka, good morning my son

It’s been so long since I was there, and I’m so blue
My heart is in Hawaii where I belong, I know it’s true
I’ve been away too many days from Hawaii blue
I’m going back to my boyhood shack on Kalakaua avenue

I’m going back to my boyhood shack on Kalakaua avenue
I want to hear my family say as one
Aloha kakahiaka, good morning my son
I’m going back to my boyhood shack on Kalakaua avenue


Ginger Blossom Maid (Larry W. Jones 10/23/2002) (song#495)

Down by the sea shore is an island maid
As she strolls along, the boys all stare
When she sings it’s like an island serenade
She wears a yellow ginger blossom in her hair

My yellow ginger blossom maid
She knows that I love her
My yellow ginger blossom maid
She’s the one that I prefer

When the surf is up and the breakers roll
She rides the waves without a care
She can hang ten toes off the surfboard nose
With a yellow ginger blossom in her hair

Every night here in the yellow moonlight
You can hear steel guitar music there
She does the hula under stars at night
With a yellow ginger blossom in her hair

My yellow ginger blossom maid
She knows that I love her
My yellow ginger blossom maid
She’s the one that I prefer

I asked for her hand in matrimony
She asked what I wanted her to wear
She said she would marry only me
With a yellow ginger blossom in her hair

My yellow ginger blossom maid
She knows that I love her
My yellow ginger blossom maid
She’s the one that I prefer

I asked for her hand in matrimony
She asked what I wanted her to wear
She said she would marry only me
With a yellow ginger blossom in her hair


Hula Story (Larry W. Jones 10/24/2002) (song#496)

With your hula hands and arms you tell a story
You can paint a picture of Mt. Fujimori
That’s why I simply adore you
Your body shows the glory of island love

I saw you say that the moon was big and yellow
Your arms said you laid your head on my pillow
Your hips said the tradewinds swayed the trees
Your caressing arms look so inviting to me

I saw you say the canoes that sailed the ocean
Came from Tahiti with the waves of emotion
Your body said kanes and wahinis under love’s potion
Settled paradise islands with deep devotion

With your hula hands and arms you tell a story
You can paint a picture of Mt. Fujimori
That’s why I simply adore you
Your body shows the glory of island love

I saw you talk about the mountains high
I saw you tell how the tradewinds sigh
You sing of love of islands, sun and sand
And you said it all with hula arms and hands

With your hula hands and arms you tell a story
You can paint a picture of Mt. Fujimori
That’s why I simply adore you
Your body shows the glory of island love


Hapa Haole Hawaiian (Larry W. Jones 10/24/2002) (song#497)

Oh, there’s an old Texas boy
Thinks he’s hapa haole Hawaiian
But he’s not the real McCoy
He just thinks he’s half Hawaiian

His mama is from the states
She calls him honey boy
It’s a name he really hates
When he’s eating fish and poi

Oh, there’s an old Texas boy
Thinks he’s hapa haole Hawaiian
But he’s not the real McCoy
He just thinks he’s half Hawaiian

He sits under the big oak trees in Texas
Thinking of how he might annex it
They need paniolo hapa haole cowboys
In Hawaii who will love and respect it

Oh, there’s an old Texas boy
Wants to trade his saddle for a paddle
Here’s what he wants to do
Paddle to Hawaii in his canoe

Oh, there’s an old Texas boy
Thinks he’s hapa haole Hawaiian
But he’s not the real McCoy
He just thinks he’s half Hawaiian

Doin’ the hula was a lot of fun
But in Texas it just ain’t done
So he thinks he’s half Hawaiian
And he’s headed for the island sun

Oh, there’s an old Texas boy
Thinks he’s hapa haole Hawaiian
But he’s not the real McCoy
He just thinks he’s half Hawaiian


Just A Dream Away (Larry W. Jones 10/24/2002) (song#498)

Blow the whistle and board the ship
The time has come to take our trip
To the islands where love holds sway
Just a dream away

You and I will find the time to renew our love
Under that famous yellow moon and those stars above

Blow the whistle and take a chance
On that dreamy isle of sweet romance
A treasure worth more than gold they say
Just a dream away

Pack your bikini and leave your suit
Your Hawaiian tan you’ll look real cute
I’ll buy you a rainbow and a lei
Just a dream away

You and I will find the time to renew our love
Under that famous yellow moon and those stars above

Blow the whistle and board the ship
The time has come to take our trip
To the islands where love holds sway
Just a dream away
Just a dream away


Paradise So Serene (Larry W. Jones 10/24/2002) (song#499)

In old Lahaina town
The girls all get so brown
The big yellow moon above the ocean
Comes calling with the potion of love

In old Lahaina town
Soft tradewinds blow the trees
When the moon is shining down
Those beams of love for you and me

Whether you’re a prince or a pauper
Or someone in between
Old Lahaina town will be your treasure
A paradise that’s so serene

The night winds cool the islands
From the summer noontime sun
Old Lahaina town is calling
To me, her island native son

In old Lahaina town
Soft tradewinds blow the trees
When the moon is shining down
Those beams of love for you and me

Whether you’re a prince or a pauper
Or someone in between
Old Lahaina town will be your treasure
A paradise that’s so serene
A paradise that’s so serene


Five Hundred (Larry W. Jones 10/24/2002) (song#500)

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

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


Old Sugar Mill Home (Larry W. Jones 10/24/2002) (song#501)

Tradewinds call again from the island headland
Where the coco palms dance and play
That sound so dreamy calls me back again
To my old home town, to yesterday

Memories of younger days playing in the sand
Memories so sweet of my island grand
To that old sugar mill from where I roamed
To that old sugar mill plantation home

Back then I guess I just didn’t realize
How much it would mean, that old paradise
My heart bids me return to that tropic zone
To that old sugar mill plantation home

The pua tuberose are fragrant in the dew
Birds of paradise still fly to their nest
I dream of that old sugar mill plantation home
Where there was love for all in islands blessed

All I own is with me as I sail ‘ore the sea
My dear old home is soon where I will be
The golden moon shines on the ocean foam
And that old sugar mill plantation home

All I own is with me as I sail ‘ore the sea
My dear old home is soon where I will be
The golden moon shines on the ocean foam
And that old sugar mill plantation home
And that old sugar mill plantation home


Kahului Koa Bridge (Larry W. Jones 10/24/2002) (song#502)

On a little bridge of koa wood
Over the stream in Kahului
It seemed the islands understood
When love called to you and me

On a little bridge of koa wood
Over the stream in Kahului
We found love so true and good
A paradise of love to be

I saw your lovely face like an angel in the water
The ripples whispered from the stream
That you were the perfect island daughter
There we bridged our island dreams

On a little bridge of koa wood
Over the stream in Kahului
I found a bridge for island dreams
The tender love you share with me

On a little bridge of koa wood
Over the stream in Kahului
It seemed the islands understood
When love called to you and me
On a little bridge of koa wood in Kahului


Cast Me Away With You (Larry W. Jones 10/24/2002) (song#503)

Cast me away with you on a tropical island
A castaway with you would be a dream come true
Cast me away with you on a tropical island
I’m sure we could find a lot to do

We could play canasta and I could watch you smile
We could play the ukulele under skies so blue
We could do all the things that are worthwhile
And most of all I would be in love with you

Cast me away with you on a tropical island
I would be your willing slave of love forever
I wouldn’t bother trying to reach some highland
There might be a ship to end our endeavor

Cast me away with you on a tropical island
A castaway with you would be a dream come true
Cast me away with you on a tropical island
I’m sure we could find a lot to do
Cast me away with you on a tropical island
I’m sure we could find a lot to do


Honeymoon Land (Larry W. Jones 10/24/2002) (song#504)

That magical night in June was our honeymoon
Our hearts beat together as one
Those islands so far and mem’ries so near, and soon
We’ll be back where our love was begun

We’re dreaming again of those island sands
Where our honemoon began
Those Hawaiian skies don’t tell lies
That same old island love is in your eyes

We can hear the ukuleles playing
Strings of love is what they’re saying
We did that moonlight stroll hand in hand
On the shores of our honeymoon land

Those days were sweet and you were too
The month of June was our honeymoon
I still see the love in your eyes of blue
Soon we’ll be singing our favorite island tune

That magical night in June was our honeymoon
Our hearts beat together as one
Those islands so far and mem’ries so near, and soon
We’ll be back where our love was begun

We can hear the ukuleles playing
Strings of love is what they’re saying
We did that moonlight stroll hand in hand
On the shores of our honeymoon land
We did that moonlight stroll hand in hand
On the shores of our honeymoon land


Time And Love (Larry W. Jones 10/26/2002) (song#505)

When the night has come
And the clock is ticking slowly by
I count the many times
When moonbeams reflected softly in your eyes

Words of tender love we exchanged
At the boarding of the ship now seem so strange
Did it really have to mean goodbye
Those tender words, that dream, that night

My pillow I hold close to me
My teardrops never let me be
My heart speaks words of love unknown
To you, my love, my own

May time and love watch over you
Our love was sweet like clover in the dew
May time and love watch over you
Like this dream that we once knew
May time and love watch over you
Like this dream that we once knew


Those Slack Key Guitars (10/29/2002) (song#506)

The boys on the beach are playing
Those sweet island girls are swaying
Listen to what the music is saying
Songs of love on those slack-key guitars

My thoughts go drifting back
To my island I’ll go swiftly back again
To where they’re playing ‘neath the stars
Songs of love on those slack-key guitars

On my island on a moonlit night
I hear those island tunes so ‘outta sight
I hear my island calling me from afar
Songs of love on those slack-key guitars

Every strum is a lovely hum to the strings of my heart
I must get back to someone who sings like island art
To my island, playing under moon and stars
Songs of love on those slack-key guitars
To my island, playing under moon and stars
Songs of love on those slack-key guitars


Footprints Of Our Love (Larry W. Jones 10/30/2002) (song#507)

Soft island sands tell of an island story grand
An island boy and girl left footprints in the sand
Though the tides have come and gone
Footprints of their island love still travel on

Footprints of our love, an island story grand
Footprints of our love, written softly in the sands
Though time and tides may erase the signs thereof
Soft island sands will always feel the footprints of our love

Now you and I are here on these soft island sands
Your lips I kiss as you warmly hold my hands
You’re the only one I ever will adore
The footprints of our love will last upon these shores

Soft island sands tell of an island story grand
An island boy and girl left footprints in the sand
Though the tides have come and gone
Footprints of their island love still travel on

Footprints of our love, an island story grand
Footprints of our love, written softly in the sands
Though time and tides may erase the signs thereof
Soft island sands will always feel the footprints of our love


Tropic Seas Of Paradise (Larry W. Jones 10/30/2002) (song#508)

The misty surf beats heavy against the reef
Tradewinds sway the island trees
The sounds of paradise brings my mind relief
My heart is in these tropic seas

Tropic seas of paradise
Islands in the stream of time
Music for my dreams arise
Tropic seas of paradise sublime

I see you laughing in the tropic sun
I feel your love that makes me smile
Our island love has just begun
In these tropic seas of paradise

Tropic seas of paradise
Islands in the stream of time
Music for my dreams arise
Tropic seas of paradise sublime


Ukulele Island Songs (Larry W. Jones 10/31/2002) (song#509)

Ukulele, songs of the islands
Playing on the isle
Drifting on the breeze
Yes, I love them
And for you my heart does long
Along with all those ukulele island songs

With you under the tropic moon above
I hear a melody of endless love
And those stars high in the sky
Know why love like ours will never die

Ukulele, songs of the islands
Playing on the isle
Drifting on the breeze
Yes, I love them
And for you my heart does long
Along with all those ukulele island songs

Yes, I love them
And for you my heart does long
Along with all those ukulele island songs
Along with all those ukulele island songs


Those Songs Of Love (Larry W. Jones 10/31/2002) (song#510)

Those songs of polynesian island love
Can be heard anywhere you go
Those songs of polynesian island love
Can be stirred with care into a lover’s glow

You’re the one whom my heart desires
My dreams your love inspires
Your beauty is suggestive of
Those songs of polynesian island love

These balmy nights and island flowers
These nights with you here in my arms
These are the times that will be always ours
Forever will I be enraptured by your charms

Whatever the path of life may bring
We will always see those stars above
And you and I will forever sing
Those songs of polynesian island love

Whatever the path of life may bring
We will always see those stars above
And you and I will forever sing
Those songs of polynesian island love


Flower Of My Heart (Larry W. Jones 10/31/2002) (song#511)

Yellow ginger flower
Your colors are so true
Yellow ginger flower
Songs are sung of you

Flowers of the rainbow
Shine in glory from the sun
But at the island flower show
The yellow ginger flower won

Yellow ginger flower
You’re the best, they say
Yellow ginger flower
You’re the beauty island flower lei

Every day when blossoms flower
People say you are so fair
You’re the blossom of love’s bower
In an island lady’s hair

Yellow ginger flower
Love is what you impart
Beauty is what you shower
Yellow ginger flower of my heart


Island Village (Larry W. Jones 10/31/2002) (song#512)

Island village, quiet and alone
Here I sit as lonely as can be
Til you return to this my island home
My heart can only lonely be

Island village, quiet memories
I remember promises of days gone by
O please return to heal this grief on me
Til then my heart will surely cry

Island village, star of mystery
Guide my love safely back to me
Moon above, yellow beams of fire
May my heart still feel your love’s desire

Island village, quiet memories
Island village, I sit here all alone
Island village, star of mystery
Bring my love back to my island home
Bring my love back to my island home


Sunset On My Heart (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2002) (song#513)

Sunset in the skies of paradise
I see in every cloud a dream of you
With all the colors of the rainbow you entice
This heart of mine whose love you knew

Sunset in the skies of paradise
The sun is setting on my heart
Can you hear my plaintive lover’s call
As misty teardrops start to fall

Sunset in the skies of paradise
Like clouds when they drift apart
So too, the love I saw in your eyes
Like the sun that’s setting on my heart

Sunset in the skies of paradise
I see in every cloud a dream of you
With all the colors of the rainbow you entice
This heart of mine whose love you knew


Sweet Dreams In The Moonlight (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2002) (song#514)

Sweet dreams in the moonlight
Wherever you may be
Tradewinds in the lonely night
Calling softly to me

Sweet dreams in the moonlight
My lonely heart you knew
You came with the twilight
I’m waiting for you

Spread your wings before tomorrow
Bring a dream here to me
End my heart’s lonely sorrow
Someone holds for my heart the key

Sweet dreams in the moonlight
Wherever you may be
Tradewinds in the lonely night
Calling softly to me


Tradewinds, Breeze Of Love (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2002) (song#515)

Tradewinds, breeze of love
Caress the one I’m dreaming of
Whisper lowly with your island tune
I’ll see her under love’s island moon

Tradewinds, breeze of love
She is the one I dream thereof
Bring your breeze and island song
To the one to whom my heart belongs

Caress her
And if she should be weeping
Remind her
That her love is what I’m keeping

Tradewinds, breeze of love
Caress the one I’m dreaming of
Whisper lowly with your island tune
I’ll see her under love’s island moon


How To Paddle A Canoe (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2002) (song#516)

Show me how to paddle a canoe
Like the boys from Honolulu
When they put the paddles to the sea
Off the shores of Waikiki

First they paddle to the left
Then they paddle to the right
When I saw them I just felt
Honolulu boys were out of sight

Up and down the waves I see them go
They put on quite a show
When they ride the waves they really soar
Back to Honolulu’s golden shore

Long distances they race in their canoes
Fourteen on the left and then
Between the isles on seas of blue
Fourteen on the right to win

Show me how to paddle a canoe
Like the boys from Honolulu
When they put the paddles to the sea
Off the shores of Waikiki


Shadowy Hula Dreams (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2002) (song#517)

Shadowy hula dreams
Visions upon the sand
A story those hands still tell
Of love where islands dwell

Far away in a peaceful ocean
On an island in the sea
Shadowy hula dreams
Call again to me

With her hands she was beyond compare
She moved as easy as the island air
A vision of love upon the sand
My heart was lost to her by love’s command

Shadowy hula dreams
Visions aren’t always what they seem
But in my heart will always be
Shadowy hula dreams

With her hands she was beyond compare
She moved as easy as the island air
A vision of love upon the sand
My heart was lost to her by love’s command

Shadowy hula dreams
Visions aren’t always what they seem
But in my heart will always be
Shadowy hula dreams


Golden Moon Of Love (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2002) (song#518)

Up from the tropical sea you came
Beams of love shone through the swaying palms
Magic was the glory of your fame
Golden moon of love for lover’s balm

Golden moon of love
You shined your light on me
Through the darkness of the night
Your light of love for me to see

Golden moon of love
You broke that lonesome spell
She’s the one that I dreamed of
And in my heart her love does dwell

Shine your golden beams of love upon the sea
Your glow will always bring back fair memories
Tonight I bask in your light divine
Here in my arms I hold a dream that’s mine

Golden moon of love
You broke that lonesome spell
She’s the one that I dreamed of
And in my heart her love does dwell
Golden moon of love


The Blue Lagoon And You (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2002) (song#519)

The blue lagoon is warm in June
It’s just you and me on the island
The blue lagoon and the sandy dunes
A paradise made for having fun

A hammock for two between the trees
Rocking gently in the tropic breeze
Blue Hawaii is the place to be
And who cares what tomorrow may bring

When the twilight comes and the sun has set
The moon will highlight the blue lagoon
The night will bring the stars we won’t forget
On this wonderful night in June

We’re making memories for years to come
That’s what the islands will do
My best dreams will always succumb to
The blue lagoon, the month of June
And you


Dreams To Send (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2002) (song#520)

A story I will tell of me
And of an island in the deep blue sea
I smelled the fragrance of flower leis
I saw swaying palms and happy days

Warm were the nights with song
Love was the delight of mine
But now does my heart deeply long
For the island love I left behind

I saw the torches light the walk along the shore
I felt the touch of lips and knew the love in store
Why can’t this story ever have an end
The islands will always have dreams to send

Warm were the nights with song
Love was the delight of mine
But now does my heart deeply long
For the island love I left behind

Warm were the nights with song
Love was the delight of mine
But now does my heart deeply long
For the island love I left behind


Bluebirds Of Paradise (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2002) (song#521)

I saw a pretty bluebird
In paradise
I saw a pretty bluebird
My heart to entice

Over in Hawaii
Island paradise
I met my lover
A jewel with no price

Pretty bluebirds fly in paradise
My heart will forever be enticed
Bluebirds sing those island tunes
Under the sun and the tropic moon

My love is here with me
On the beach at Waikiki
Forever will we be enticed
By pretty bluebirds of paradise

I saw a pretty bluebird
In paradise
I saw a pretty bluebird
My heart to entice

Pretty bluebirds fly in paradise
My heart will forever be enticed
Bluebirds sing those island tunes
Under the sun and the tropic moon

My love is here with me
On the beach at Waikiki
Forever will we be enticed
By pretty bluebirds of paradise


Far Off Island Skies (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2002) (song#522)

For those whom love discovers
The bird of paradise still flies
Wings of love for lovers
In the far off island skies

Over in Hawaii
Are heavenly skies of blue
Tradewinds there caress you
With whispers of love so true

The light from the stars above
Will guide you to your love
The magic of a moonlit night
Makes the flame of love so bright

Over in Hawaii
Under heavenly skies of blue
The bird of paradise still flies
For me and you

The light from the stars above
Will guide you to your love
The magic of a moonlit night
Makes the flame of love so bright

Over in Hawaii
Under heavenly skies of blue
The bird of paradise still flies
For me and you


Hawaii Is Hula Town (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2002) (song#523)

They put their hands on their hips
Then do the hula with some graceful dips
Bring your honey and hula on down
Hawaii is hula town

Move your feet and turn around
You will love this dance you’ve found
Bring your honey and hula on down
Hawaii is hula town

The island girls make it look easy as pie
Dancing to the drums with their arms in the sky
Don’t be shy, just take a chance
Bring your honey for some hula island romance

The hula is danced to music sweet
In Hawaii the hula will be a treat
Bring your honey and hula on down
Hawaii is hula town
Bring your honey and hula on down
Hawaii is hula town


Southern Seas Dream (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2002) (#524)

The southern seas and island dreams
The stars above like diamonds gleam
Winds of trade breezing from afar
Music of love from steel guitars

The southern seas and island dreams
Have always drawn me, so it seems
A vagabond I want to be
And live a dream in the southern seas

The night I met you I still recall
On the island sand down by the sea
That was the night my heart did fall
In love with you in endless ecstasy

Winds of trade breezing from afar
Stars of diamonds and moon above
Music of love from steel guitars
Brought you to me, my dream of love


Honolulu Airport Lights (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2002) (song#525)

Honolulu airport lights
Give a glow across the sea
From my eye a teardrop falls
While the lights of Honolulu airport fall on me

There may be other enchanting places call
But they can’t erase these tears that fall
Honolulu airport lights are there til dawn
To remind me that my love has gone

Other lights will light her face
Someone else will kiss her lips at night
What will light my tears in paradise
Honolulu airport lights

Honolulu airport lights
Give a glow across the sea
From my eye a teardrop falls
While the lights of Honolulu airport fall on me
Honolulu airport lights my tears and me


Island Days, Magic Nights (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2002) (song#526)

Island days and magic nights
Count the ways of love’s delights
Magic nights and island days
Our light of love will find a way

Islands are made for loving
Sand and sun and waves and sea
Islands are made for giving
Your sweet love to me

When I kiss you in the moonlight
The whole world is right
When I hold you in my arms
You’re the magic of the islands with your charms

Island days and magic nights
Count the ways of love’s delights
Magic nights and island days
Our light of love will find a way

Islands are made for loving
Sand and sun and waves and sea
Islands are made for giving
Your sweet love to me


Hawaiian Moonlight Glow (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2002) (song#527)

My mind still brings back all those dreams
Where island moonlight softly streams
The fragrant flowers of ginger leis
Entice my heart with dreamy island ways

It was there I found her one fine day
The island girl who stole my heart away
I still dream those dreams at night I know
Of her in that Hawaiian moonlight glow

My mind brings back her call from across the sea
When she said come back to me, to me
There is where my heart so longs to be
With her again at Waikiki

Where the beams of moonlight softly share
The dreams of lovers gathered there
My memories give my heart a stir
When my mind and heart think of only her

May the tradewinds kiss her once for me
And whisper those same words that still are true
May the moon shine softly on the sea
And light my dreams, those dreams we knew

Hawaiian moonlight glow
You will light my dreams, I know


Mahinalani (Larry W. Jones 11/02/2002) (song#528)

Mahinalani
Heavenly moon
Placed in the heavens so high above
I hold you in my arms this month of June
Mahinalani, my love

Mahinalani
Heavenly moon
Upon the sea your heavenly glow
My heart for you does ever swoon
Mahinalani, I love you so

Mahinalani is the one I love so dearly
The moon above shines it’s light of love so clearly

Mahinalani
Heavenly moon
Shine on this island in oceans blue
She I will marry this month of June
Mahinalani, my dream, my you


Sweet Island Girl (Larry W. Jones 11/02/2002) (song#529)

Sweet island girl
On whatever island you may be
Sweet island girl
Far across the deep blue sea

How are you doing over yonder
While we’re apart
Will you ever wander
Back to my broken heart

You know I said I love you
And don’t you see
The tears I shed beloved
Are those you gave to me

Sweet island girl
You know I said I love you
More than island pearls
You know I said I love you
And my love’s still true


My Heart I Lost Somewhere (Larry W. Jones 11/02/2002) (song#530)

My heart I know I lost somewhere
On the beach at waikiki
A hula girl with a flower in her hair
Sang a song of love to me

That big yellow moon was on the rise
Shining love from Hawaiian skies
It was then I lost my heart somewhere
To that girl with a flower in her hair

Now I only dream with sad emotion
Of that girl across the wide blue ocean
I wonder what she’s doing over there
That girl with a flower in her hair

My heart I know I lost somewhere
On the beach at waikiki
A hula girl with a flower in her hair
Sang a song of love to me

That big yellow moon was on the rise
Shining love from Hawaiian skies
It was then I lost my heart somewhere
To that girl with a flower in her hair
A hula girl with a flower in her hair


Shadows Falling (Larry W. Jones 11/02/2002) (song#531)

Can’t you see those shadows falling
I’m so sad I’m gonna cry
Don’t you know that I’m recalling
Songs of love beneath Hawaiian skies

She sang so tenderly, I know it’s gonna rain
My heart surrendered, now it’s full of pain
The shadows on my mind won’t leave me alone
I have to find a way back to that tropic zone

Can’t you see my heart is pining as before
That big old moon is shining on that island shore
Take me back to those isles of paradise
So I can dry these lonesome tears from my eyes

Can’t you see those shadows falling
I’m so sad I’m gonna cry
Don’t you know that I’m recalling
Songs of love beneath Hawaiian skies

Can’t you see those shadows falling
I’m so sad I’m gonna cry
Don’t you know that I’m recalling
Songs of love beneath Hawaiian skies


Texawaiian In My Heart (Larry W. Jones 11/02/2002) (song#532)

I see Galveston seagulls overhead
But the skies are a deeper blue in my head
These islands are wide blue oceans apart
I’m a Texawaiian in my heart

These cowboy boots are mine, you see
But I need my feet in a polynesian sea
In Hawaii I can get a brand new start
I’m a Texawaiian in my heart

I love to be a Texan but there’s a limit to it too
I could trade my saddle for a paddle and an outrigger canoe

I like to sing songs that make you cheer
But here we sing songs about crying in our beer
My life and my heart are worlds apart
I’m a Texawaiian in my heart

Corpus Christi and Palacious have the sun and fish
But I would take Hawaii any day you wish
Birds of paradise are better than a sagebrush lark
I’m a Texawaiian in my heart

My spurs still jingle and my hat still fits
But I want to taste kalua pig from a luau pit
Sing kiho’alu songs when Aloha starts
I’m a Texawaiian in my heart

I love to be a Texan but there’s a limit to it too
I could trade my saddle for a paddle and an outrigger canoe

My spurs still jingle and my hat still fits
But I want to taste kalua pig from a luau pit
Sing kiho’alu songs when Aloha starts
I’m a Texawaiian in my heart


Back In Hawaii Again (Larry W. Jones 11/03/2002) (song#533)

I’m back in Hawaii again
Out where Aloha means a friend
Where the long outriggers speed
Over waves of blue and green
I’m back in Hawaii again

Strollin’ the beach once more
Talk stories of old island yore
Where the stars come out at night
And the moon is a delight
Back in Hawaii again

Whoopi ti yi yo, singing as I go
Back in Hawaii again
Whoopi ti yi yea, I’m so glad to say
Back in Hawaii again


Lydialani (11/03/2002)(#534)

Lydialani
Heavenly wife
With you only will I spend my life
I hold you in my arms this night of nights
Lydialani, my love, my wife

Lydialani
Heavenly wife
Upon my heart your heavenly glow
My dreams of you fills every night
Lydialani, I love you so

Lydialani is the one I love so dearly
The moon above shines it’s light of love so clearly

Lydialani
Heavenly wife
The beauty of islands in oceans blue
With you only will I spend my life
Lydialani, my dream, my you


As Fair Hawaii Calls (Larry W. Jones 11/03/2002) (song#535)

As I go with the tide, over seas far and wide
I hear that dreamy call
Where the tropical weather makes my heart like a feather
As fair Hawaii calls

With my old paddle wetted and my outrigger headed
To the isles of Aloha so strong
I see the stars in the skies, I can see paradise
As fair Hawaii calls

When moonbeams are falling and Hawaii is calling
The isles sing Aloha to all
With the love of my soul, down the beach we will stroll
As fair Hawaii calls

When moonbeams are falling and Hawaii is calling
The isles sing Aloha to all
With the love of my soul, down the beach we will stroll
As fair Hawaii calls


Leilani, Angel Maile Rose (Larry W. Jones 11/03/2002) (song#536)

Polynesian eyes like island stars
Cheeks like a maile rose
Leilani was an angel island girl
Heaven knows

Weep all you sailing men
Blow, winds, blow
Heaven knows if you’ll ever see again
Leilani, angel maile rose

Sail, all the lonely nights
Sail through the day
Steer the ship toward islands in repose, and
Leilani, angel maile rose

Stormy oceans, dark at night
Dreams of islands past me goes
Old Lahaina town is out of sight, and
Leilani, angel island rose


Warm Islands (Larry W. Jones 11/04/2002) (song#537)

All day I sail the open seas without a sight of islands
Warm islands
Old salts and I with throats so dry cry for rum of islands
Warm islands

The nights blow cold and stars so bold point the way to islands
Warm islands
The dawn at last and I’m before the mast toward islands
Warm islands

Keep a-rollin’ on, night til dawn, toward islands drawn
And keep those sails raised toward islands
This old ship and you, over oceans blue, toward love that’s true
And islands waiting there for me and you

The sun has set and I see yet no sign of islands
Warm islands
Raise high up there a sailor’s prayer to show the way to islands
Warm islands

My eyes are sore for those isles of yore and dreams of islands
Warm islands
All ye mates I guess want the warm caress of girls of islands
Warm islands
All ye mates I guess want the warm caress of girls of islands
Warm islands


Rose Of The Island (Larry W. Jones 11/04/2002) (song#538)

Rose of the island, island so fair
How fragrant your blossom, sweet is the air
Tradewinds that blow here, softly they blow
Rose of the island, sweet tuberose

Answer my love, dear, my rose sublime
Stars in the heavens say you will be mine
Rose of the island, island so fair
Will you be mine dear, will you be there

Sing me a song dear, sing it to me
Sing me love’s song dear, sweet harmony
Rose of the island, island so fair
A sweet tuberose dear, a rose for your hair

Islands love sunshine, roses do too
The moon up above you beams love on you too
Rose of the island, island so fair
I’ll always love you, love we will share
Rose of the island, island so fair
I’ll always love you, love we will share


Ballad Of ’89 (Larry W. Jones 11/04/2002) (song#539)

I sailed away in ’89
Left the island life behind me
As I sailed along, that dream was mine
Of the girl I left behind

My sweet island girl, my island pearl, the girl I left behind me
My sweet island girl, my island pearl, the girl I left behind

The wind did fill the sails on the mast so tall
And the storms and the clouds did blind me
As I sailed along, that dream was mine
Of the girl I left behind

My sweet island girl, my island pearl, the girl I left behind me
My sweet island girl, my island pearl, the girl I left behind

If I ever get off this lonely ship
And the oceans they don’t drown me
I’ll go back to where the wind is fair
And the girl I left behind me
I’ll go back to where the wind is fair
And the girl I left behind


A Sailor’s Plea (Larry W. Jones 11/04/2002) (song#540)

Don’t bury me in the deep blue sea
The young man of sail said pleadingly
His lips spoke words of his island days
As his dreams of love slowly fade away

Don’t bury me in the deep blue sea
Where the wind and waves roll endlessly
Where Davy Jones rules the cold dark deep
Don’t bury me in the deep blue sea

I know there is no pain, there to behold
Where the ocean waves run deep and cold
But this I pray and hope you agree
Don’t bury me in the deep blue sea

My only love I left on the island paradise
When I sailed away I could hear her cries
By my love, you see, please let me be
Don’t bury me in the deep blus sea

The sailors all and the captain said
Son, we hear your words from your dying bed
We know your dreams and hear your plea
You don’t want to die in the deep blue sea

They buried him in the deep blue sea
Where Davy Jones rules the cold dark deep
Where the wind and waves roll endlessly
They buried him in the deep blue sea

All the sailors now, as they sail the seas
Mark on their charts, his grave in the sea
And his only love on the island paradise
Looks to the sea and for him she cries

All the sailors now, as they sail the seas
Mark on their charts, his grave in the sea
And his only love on the island paradise
Looks to the sea and for him she cries


Hawaii, My Prize (Larry W. Jones 11/04/2002) (song#541)

Give me a cottage on an island home
Near the reef and the shore by the bay
Where the waves break in majestic foam
Where love and Aloha hold sway

Let me see the plumage of the paradise bird
On an island where children can play
Let me see the skies of an island paradise
Where love and Aloha hold sway

The stars of the islands at night
Shine down from the heavens so bright
Islands are there to be prized
And Hawaii is my island paradise

From the isles of Polynesia they came
Men and women of mariner fame
Long canoes sailed the wide oceans blue
To spread Aloha for me and for you

I love the lei blossoms so fragrant and fair
I love the tradewinds that softly blow there
I love the islands of my paradise
Hawaii, my islands, Hawaii my prize
I love the islands of my paradise
Hawaii, my islands, Hawaii my prize


Ikua Purdy, Paniolo (Larry W. Jones 11/04/2002) (song#542)

I was in the cow palace in Ft. Worth one day
A bunch of cowpokes, they lies they had to say
They had seen all the roundups on the Chisholm trail
Some had seen all the roundups that telling could tell

Up walked a strange cowboy, paniolo to some
From Hawaii he came, a cowboy he had become
They asked from where he hailed, his voice had a ring
He spoke of fair islands and roundups in the spring

He said the cattle are grazing in Waianae this morn
At the ranch of the Parker’s, kepa pele bell spurs busy at dawn
At Hanalei on Kauai the kaula ili lariats they swing
And the paniolos of Hawaii are at the roundups in the spring

They all got quiet and asked this strange cowboy his name
Ikua Purdy I am and but I’m not here for the fame
I was world rodeo steer roping champion in 1908
I wanted to see cowboys from the great Lone Star state

I’ve seen stampedes on the big island down by the bay
I’ve been to roundups and brandings many a day
Yes, Texas has cowboys with skills highly prized
But paniolos in Hawaii are cowboys in paradise
Ikua Purdy I am and but I’m not here for the fame
Paniolo means cowboy, in Texas or Hawaii the same


If You Go (Larry W. Jones 11/05/2002) (song#543)

From this island you say that you’re leaving
From the one who now loves you so dear
If you go, I’m the one who will be grieving
If you go, I will shed for you a tear

Many times I have thought of you only
Many deams I have had of you too
If you go, my island life will be lonely
My golden dreams will all be turned to blue

Let me hold you and kiss you, my darling
I beg you to not leave me blue
Sweet were your words in the moonlight
My love for you will always be true

If you go, please remember this island
If you go, my heart will surely be blue
If you go, I will try to understand dear
But if you go, may rainbows ever follow you
If you go, my heart will surely be blue
But if you go, may rainbows ever follow you


Evening Sun (Larry W. Jones 11/06/2002) (song#544)

When the evening sun shines upon the islands
And all is well in old Lahaina town
I take off my shoes and go a-strolling
Just to watch the evening sun go down

The evening sun turns the sky to gold over old Lahaina town
All is well as I watch the evening sun go down

Strolling in the sand when the evening sun goes down
A postcard of paradise will you entice
All is well in old Lahaina town
No better place than here in paradise

The evening sun turns the sky to gold over old Lahaina town
Paradise will you entice when the evening sun go down

Feel the ocean spray, feel the tradewind in your hair
Here, the birds of paradise abound
Aloha is a lovely word that we all can share
With the setting of the sun on old Lahaina town

The evening sun turns the sky to gold over old Lahaina town
Sing Aloha to your love as the evening sun goes down
The evening sun turns the sky to gold over old Lahaina town
Sing Aloha to your love as the evening sun goes down


Return To Isles Of Paradise (Larry W. Jones 11/05/2002) (song#545)

From out across the sea I hear a melody
Songs I know from the islands that I love
There my dreams still live in sweet harmony
Underneath that tropic moon above

On Hawaii I left her so many years ago
But I still recall the words she said to me
Please come back, my love, to where the tradewinds blow
Come back to your island girl, to Hawaii

The night was filled with stars, reflected in her eyes
The full moon shined it’s beams from above
To her I must return, to isles of paradise
To my island girl who promised me her love

From out across the sea I hear a melody
Songs I know from the islands that I love
There my dreams still live in sweet harmony
Underneath that tropic moon above

The night was filled with stars, reflected in her eyes
The full moon shined it’s beams from above
To her I must return, to isles of paradise
To my island girl who promised me her love
To her I must return, to isles of paradise
To my island girl who promised me her love


Can’t Get Enough (Larry W. Jones 11/06/2002) (song#546)

Whiskey from the top shelf
Diamonds in the rough
I guess a girl like can’t help herself
You just can’t get enough

Remember when I found you
On the side of town that’s rough
I thought my love satisfied you
I thought that would be enough

Whiskey from the top shelf
Diamonds in the rough
I wonder when a girl like you will ever get enough

Remember when I found you
On the roughest side of town
You said that you’d be true
When I bought your wedding gown

I took you to the islands
Out on the ocean blue
Our love looked like it started grand
On Tahiti and Hawaii too

Whiskey from the top shelf
Diamonds in the rough
I wonder when a girl like you will ever get enough

I bought you the biggest black pearl
I could find anywhere around
But you couldn’t get enough girl
You laid my money down

Well girl, I hate to tell you
Our love is in the rough
You turned my love and dreams all blue
So, I think I’ve had enough

Whiskey from the top shelf
Diamonds in the rough
I wonder when a girl like you will ever get enough
Whiskey from the top shelf
Diamonds in the rough
I wonder when a girl like you will ever get enough


A Hawaiian Cowboy Am I (Larry W. Jones 11/06/2002) (song#547)

A Hawaiian cowboy am I, riding the range all alone
Tradewinds around me whisper sweet island songs
On nights underneath the full moon above
Hawaiian cowboys sing their songs of love

See the cattle lay down
Hawaii is home here for me
A cowboy I’ll always be found
Riding along in the tradewind island breeze

Fair is Hawaii, and kind
Nowhere else will you ever find
Cowboys riding the range by the sea
Riding along in the tradewind island breeze

I know why these islands have drawn
Cowboys like me to round up the cattle at dawn

In Hawaii I’ll keep riding along
Here, there’s never a wrong to see
Here on the island is where I belong
Riding along in the tradewind island breeze
Here on the island is where I belong
Riding along in the tradewind island breeze


Cowboy Island Home (Larry W. Jones 11/06/2002) (song#548)

Cowpokes know a place where they want to spend their days
I know such a place where the sun shines on the bays
Around the world I’ve had time to roam
But only one place could be my cowboy island home

When it’s luau time in Hawaii and the girls all wear their leis
I long to be in Hawaii where the reef booms with the waves
I can feel the tradewinds blowing as I ride along the sand
Feel Aloha spreading over me just like a cowboy island man

Just a walkin’, strollin’, surfin’, there’s where I belong
Just a singin’, hummin’, playin’, all those island songs
I can’t wait to get back to that place, to sunny island days
When it’s luau time in Hawaii and the girls all wear their leis

When it’s luau time in Hawaii and the girls all wear their leis
It beats roundup time in Texas when the bloom is on the sage
Those majestic isles are calling, Hawaii calls me to my cowboy home
This cowboy from the state of Texas, to Hawaii he will roam

When it’s luau time in Hawaii and the girls all wear their leis
This cowpokes knows a place where he will spend his days
Those majestic isles are calling, Hawaii calls me to my cowboy home
This cowboy from the state of Texas, to Hawaii I will roam


Tale Of A Lonely Sailor (Larry W. Jones 11/06/2002) (song#549)

Hear the tale of a lonely sailor
Who sailed the oceans blue
He booked aboard an arctic whaler
And bid his sweetheart island girl adieu

They were so in love with each other
This arctic sail would be his last
Their wedding day would be like no other
No more would he sail the oceans vast

One night when the whaling work was done
When the sun had set that day
Someone asked him to sing a sailing song
Just to drive his blues away

When the lonely sailor began to sing
His mind wandered back to his island home
He would wed his sweetheart in the spring
Never again would she be alone

One day his whaling days were over
He sailed back to old Lahaina town
And they had to tell the ocean rover
They had to lay his sweetheart down

They said her last words as she lay dying
Was when she whispered her sailor’s name
And she asked that he not be crying
Just to love his dreams and her the same

Hear the tale of a lonely sailor
Who sails the oceans blue
He booked aboard an arctic whaler
His dreams of love did not come true


Sail The Winds (Larry W. Jones 11/06/2002) (song#550)

On Oahu the moon was just on the rise
Leilani was the dream on my mind
Because a warrior was what I did prize
Leilani was on Maui confined

Too long I had been a warrior
Leilani was on Maui confined
But the drums of war told me a message
She was there in old Lahaina town

Sail when the winds of trade blow
Sail hard and I’ll be there at dawn
Sail when the winds of trade blow
Leilani’s there in old Lahaina town

I looked back over my shoulder
Oahu was nowhere in sight
I heard the warrior drums of the others
But Leilani would meet me tonight

Sail when the winds of trade blow
Sail hard and I’ll be there at dawn
Sail when the winds of trade blow
Leilani’s there in old Lahaina town

Leilani was waiting on the shoreline
To Maui she had been forced to go
With her I would now spend my lifetime
In the town of Lahaina of old

Then in the light of early morning
I heard the loud drums of war sound
I failed to heed the warriors warning
I saw Leilani as I fell to the ground

Leilani knew I was dying
My dreams of her were now in vain
As she kissed my lips she was crying
I heard her whisper my name

Sail when the winds of trade blow
Sail hard and I’ll be there at dawn
Sail when the winds of trade blow
Leilani’s there in old Lahaina town


Aloha Mi Amor (Larry W. Jones 11/06/2002) (song#551)

Aloha is the language of loving
Spanish paniolo cowboys would say
They mixed the two for turtledoving
On the islands down by the bay

Their songs were those of a lover
With guitars they sang their love songs
I hear their words over and over
Aloha mi amor, Aloha mi corazon

Wherever the paniolo cowboys would ride
Island girls listened for the jingle of their spurs
They would open their hula arms wide
And love, those polynesian eyes conferred

Island girls’ hearts could not stop beating
When paniolo cowboys had them alone
Island girls would sigh at their greeting
Aloha mi amor, Aloha mi corazon

Aloha is the language of loving
Spanish paniolo cowboys would say
Island girls would sigh at their greeting
Aloha mi amor, Aloha mi corazon
Aloha mi amor, Aloha mi corazon


Dreams Drifting By (Larry W. Jones 11/07/2002) (song#552)

The moon was full dear, your love I’m seeing
I dreamed you were still here in my arms
But at dawn’s light dear, I was weeping
I was seeing dreams but not your charms

Gone is my rainbow, where did your charms go
You took my happiness away from me
Where tradewinds blow dear, love you bestowed dear
Dreams of you are drifting by my island in the sea

The love you showed dear, you said was true love
But with you gone the island’s not the same
You said you loved me under stars above dear
Now that you’re gone my heart feels only pain

Gone is my rainbow, where did your charms go
You took my happiness away from me
Where tradewinds blow dear, love you bestowed dear
Dreams of you are drifting by my island in the sea


Skies Blessed (Larry W. Jones 11/07/2002) (song#553)

Blessed are the skies, skies of paradise
Each evening a portrait, reminds me of you
Bright is your smile with love in your eyes
You color my dreams with love that is true

Skies that are blessed are colored with love
You color my dreams like the skies that are blessed from above

Blessed are the skies, skies of paradise
How beautiful the rainbow that’s over your heart
My love for you is without disguise
May these skies that are blessed never depart

Skies that are blessed are colored with love
You color my dreams like the skies that are blessed from above

Here is my song, my love song to you
Blessed is our love, love that is true
You are the beauty of islands untold
You are my love, the dream that I hold

Skies that are blessed are colored with love
You color my dreams like the skies that are blessed from above

Kalua Pig (Larry W. Jones 11/07/2002) (song#554)

Great big troubles
In the brine
It’s a kalua pig
A real Hawaiian swine

Great big troubles
Makes me wanna hold a luau
With a squeelin’ pig
That I’ve first gotta get outta that brine

So, here’s to a luau moon
And here’s to the pig, you see
But mostly here’s a roast
Kalua pig for you and me

Great big troubles
Makes me wanna hold a luau
With a squeelin’ pig
That I’ve first gotta get outta that brine


Windward Island, Leeward Side (Larry W. Jones 11/07/2002) (song#555)

Windward island, leeward side
Friendly island in oceans wide
I have my true love
Here by my side

Down on the windward island, over on the leeward side
I found my true love, my island bride

Windward island, leeward side
Tradewinds blow here and bring the tide
I have my true love
On the leeward side

Polynesian island, where love resides
Tradewinds blow here, on the windward side
Here I found her
On the leeward side

Windward island, leeward side
The waves break over the reef outside
I found my island bride
On the leeward side

Down on the windward island, over on the leeward side
I found my true love, my island bride


Tropic Repose (Larry W. Jones 11/07/2002) (song#556)

The island moon shines above
Bamboo trees wave from their grove
For you my heart is filled with love
You’re the one my heart thinks of

The winds of trade soflty blow
Through the swaying hula palms
And the moon in golden glow
Welcomes you here to my arms

The dreams I have are all of you
The dreams I had have all come true
Here on the island made for two
Where island songs to us love drew

Where the sweet pua tuberose
Smells so fragrant in your hair
Here my life is in repose
As your sweet love lifts every care

The winds of trade soflty blow
Through the swaying hula palms
And the moon in golden glow
Welcomes you here to my arms

(Larry W. Jones 11/07/2002) (song#557)

In Hawaii it’s twilight time
The sun is just a glimmering glow
I remember in sweet sublime
The island girl I used to know

Twilight time is like heaven
Clouds above are glowing red
I remember her and, yes, even
The words of love she said

Yes, I remember her and her words of love
Yes, I remember every word

In Hawaii it’s twilight time
The sun is just a glimmering glow
I remember in sweet sublime
The island girl I used to know

Yes, I remember her and her words of love
Yes, I remember every word


Shadows Speak Of Love (Larry W. Jones 11/07/2002) (song#558)

Shadows in the moonlight
He and she on island sand
Shadows blending in the moonlight
As they respond to love’s demand

Shadows in the moonlight
Stars of love blaze across the sky
Hear the tradewinds softly whisper
As two lovers softly sigh

The moon sheds it’s yellow beams of love light
Instead of words, two shadows speak of love

Shadows in the moonlight
He and she on island sand
Now the shadows in the moonlight
Become as one on island sand

The moon sheds it’s yellow beams of love light
Instead of words, two shadows speak of love


Savor The Love (Larry W. Jones 11/07/2002) (song#559)

On a polynesian island
Life is as a song you need
On a polynesian island
You can sing a song of love with me

On a polynesian island
You can look up at the stars
You can feel the strings of love there
From those island steel guitars

You and I can taste the flavor of island atmosphere
You and I can savor the love we find right here

On a polynesian island
I will love you for always
You and I will savor
Polynesian love a thousand ways


Ukulele Harvest Moon (Larry W. Jones 11/07/2002) (song#560)

Ukulele harvest moon
Islands call and lovers swoon
Now the time is right, this enchanted night
Under ukulele harvest moon

You were waiting there
Flower fragrance filled the air
The love we found was true, a lover’s tune
Under ukulele harvest moon

Under the ukulele harvest moon was where I found you
Island music filled with love was so true
Ukuleles played a lover’s tune
Under ukulele harvest moon

Your kiss was so divine
Stars above knew the time
September lovers swooned, you and I in tune
Under ukulele harvest moon


Under That Coco Palm Tree (Larry W. Jones 11/07/2002) (song#561)

My days are no longer those of sorrow
Skies have turned from gray to blue
When you asked me to come back tomorrow
Words of love I will say to you

When I met you under that coco palm tree
I knew that you were the one meant for me
I hope we will never have to say goodbye
For if we did my heart would surely cry

My nights are no longer frightful
Wondering if love would come my way
You made my nights so delightful
With your kisses and your loving ways

Now I don’t have to dream in sorrow
You will be in my dreams tomorrow
I knew that you were the one meant for me
When I met you under that coco palm tree


Tradewinds Are Singing Along (Larry W. Jones 11/07/2002) (song#562)

Tradewinds are singing along
Fair is the love in it’s song
Tradewinds keep calling to me
Islands of love for you and me

I know where my heart is from
There where dreams of love come
Where you and I will be soon
Islands of love for us in June

Tradewinds are calling me there
Where love is without a care
True love will be yours and mine
Islands of love where rainbows shine

Long ago I only could dream
Of islands in the deep blue stream
But now true love we’ll find
Islands of love, your dreams and mine

Tradewinds are singing along
Fair is the love in it’s song
Tradewinds keep calling to me
Islands of love for you and me


Sweet Remembrance (larry W. Jones 11/07/2002) (song#563)

A lei of daydreams has be woven
A lei of words that were spoken
Flowers that stay in my memory
Sweet remembrance of you and me

A lei of rainbows has been painted
True colors of our love untainted
Sun and moon in island majesty
Sweet remembrance of you and me

How sweetly I remember when you gave to me that lei
Sweet is my remembrance of that day

A lei of flowers has been woven
No sweeter love will I ever see
Two hearts that melted interwoven
Sweet remembrance of you and me

A lei of tears has now been forming
For you my arms still are longing
Sweet was the sorrow of our parting
Sweet remembrance of you and me

How sweetly I remember when you gave to me that lei
Sweet is my remembrance of that day

A lei of daydreams has be woven
A lei of words that were spoken
Flowers that stay in my memory
Sweet remembrance of you and me


Rainbow Lei Of Love (Larry W. Jones 11/08/2002) (song#564)

I saw a rainbow around Bora Bora
The lagoon had all the colors of the sky
Tahitian drums spoke of loveliness
And tradewinds made the lovers sigh

Palm trees swayed to the winds of love
Fragrant leis of flowers filled the air
The moonlit lagoon glowed from stars above
There was magic when I held you there

Bora Bora, polynesian paradise
How I long to see again your lagoon
Bora Bora, jewel of the southern isles
My love and I will be there soon

There’s a rainbow around Bora Bora
A lei of colors fills your grand lagoon
Your lovely rainbow sets you apart
Like the rainbow lei of love within my heart

Moon On The Rise (Larry W. Jones 11/09/2002) (song#565)


The moon was on the rise, over islands of paradise
You were standing there, a vision beyond compare
I was taken by surprise by the starlight in your eyes
My heart was lost in love’s demise when the moon was on the rise

Moon on the rise, over isles of paradise
Moon on the rise, I was taken by surprise
A dream was standing there, a dream beyond compare
I lost my heart to love’s demise when the moon was on the rise

The scent of love was in the air
You had a flower in your hair
The moon shined bright above
It had to be you and island love

Moon on the rise, over isles of paradise
Moon on the rise, I was taken by surprise
A dream was standing there, a dream beyond compare
I lost my heart to love’s demise when the moon was on the rise

I held your hand in mine
It seemed like a long, long time
I kissed your lips of wine
And you said that you’d be mine

The moon was on the rise, over islands of paradise
You were standing there, a vision beyond compare
I was taken by surprise by the starlight in your eyes
My heart was lost in love’s demise when the moon was on the rise

Moon on the rise, over isles of paradise
Moon on the rise, I was taken by surprise
A dream was standing there, a dream beyond compare
I lost my heart to love’s demise when the moon was on the rise

April Showers In Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 11/09/2002) (song#566)

April showers bring May flowers in Hawaii
They look the same in June and July too
It was in April when I met you by the sea
Every day of every month I yearn for you

April Showers in Hawaii are so refreshing
May flowers give the islands all their blessings
I placed a red hibiscus in your long black hair
Because Hawaii is blessed with April showers there

April showers bring May flowers in Hawaii
They look the same in August and September too
It was in April when I fell in love, you see
In September I still dream a dream of you

April showers bring May Flowers in Hawaii
October, November and December are in full bloom
But in December I remember April by the sea
In December my heart is warmed by dreams of you

April showers bring May Flowers in Hawaii
January, February and March are months of flowers too
I just got your letter that you sent to me
I will shower you with love in April soon
I just got your letter that you sent to me
I will shower you with love in April soon


Waves Upon The Reef (Larry W. Jones 11/09/2002) (song#567)

When the moon is dark and the only light you see
Are the stars above that reach eternity
Waves are breaking on the reef outside the bay
And I remember the parting words I heard you say

You told me that you had to leave our island home
Even though my heart would grieve so with you gone
My heart now breaks for you with only grief
Like the breaking of the waves upon the reef

I thought your love was true because you told me so
Now you’ve found a love that’s like a new-turned leaf
It broke my heart that night you said you had to go
Like the breaking of the waves upon the reef

When the moon is dark and the only light you see
Are the stars above that reach eternity
I think of you while I’m looking out to sea
And feel my heart breaking upon the reef

You told me that you had to leave our island home
Even though my heart would grieve so with you gone
My heart now breaks for you with only grief
Like the breaking of the waves upon the reef

When the moon is dark and the only light you see
Are the stars above that reach eternity
I think of you while I’m looking out to sea
And feel my heart breaking upon the reef


Blossoms Of Ginger White (Larry W. Jones 11/09/2002) (song#568)

A tropic sundress and a white ginger blossom
You look so cool in the island sun
A white ginger blossom is in your hair tonight
You feel so warm in the pale moonlight

Blossoms of ginger white are in your hair tonight
From the mountain streams and valleys too
Fragrance fills the air with sweet delight
White ginger blossoms fill my dreams of you

Around your lovely neck I placed
A white ginger blossom lei of love they laced
A sundress and you in white ginger by the sea
You placed upon my heart your love so gingerly

A tropic sundress and a white ginger blossom
You look so cool in the island sun
A white ginger blossom is in your hair tonight
You feel so warm in the pale moonlight

Around your lovely neck I placed
A white ginger blossom lei of love they laced
A sundress and you in white ginger by the sea
You placed upon my heart your love so gingerly


In Far Off Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 11/09/2002) (song#569)

I hear the songs from days that now are gone
From our days in far off Hawaii
My fear belongs to dreams that now are gone
From our days in far off Hawaii

I have the records of the songs we used to play
I have the memories of you and me down by the bay
From far away you’re still in my dreams constantly
From our days in far off Hawaii

When moonbeams shined and turned the silver sea to gold
Moonlight on your hair was a vision to behold
From here I hold you in my arms in memories
From our days in far off Hawaii

I bought flowers from the store the other day
Red hibiscus was the flower in your hair that day
Blue is my world as I remember you and me
From our days in far off Hawaii

I bought flowers from the store the other day
Red hibiscus was the flower in your hair that day
Blue is my world as I remember you and me
From our days in far off Hawaii
From our days in far off Hawaii


Girl Lost In Paradise (Larry W. Jones 11/09/2002) (song#570)

You’ve got the starlight in your eyes
You’ve got the islands in your heart
Someone’s telling you sweet lies
But from Hawaii you won’t depart
Girl Lost in paradise

He’s just a beachboy on the fly
He’ll break your heart with his disguise
You’ll believe all of his lies
But Hawaii is still your paradise
Girl Lost in paradise

You’re letting him hold your hand
Strolling with him in the sand
Next you’ll be calling him your island man
Haven’t even had time to get a tan
Girl Lost in paradise

Now he’s croonin’ and you’re swoonin’
Next you’ll be kissin’ under the moonin’
Don’t you know, girl, where you belong
But I guess you won’t be going home
Girl Lost in paradise


Pa’i Umauma A Kauikeaouli (Larry W. Jones 11/09/2002) (song#571)

A chant for Kauikeaouli must be heard
You were called King Kamehameha the third
For thirty years did your majesty reign
The great Mahele land division was your fame

For you a pa’i umauma chest-slap chant was born
For you, O King, this song would you adorn
Around Hawaii and Moloka’i a journey made
So the name Kamehameha might never fade

At Hilo you gathered lehua girls to submit
At Wailuku you made the prisoner’s pit
At Haili you saw the birds of paradise
At Panaewa you saw the lehua trees nearby

On Moloka’i your journey there was told
You saw the island from the one and only road
At Mauna Loa you saw the adze quarry there
Tell the refrain, Kauikeaouli, Hawaiian kingdom heir

A chant for Kauikeaouli must be heard
You were called King Kamehameha the third
Around Hawaii and Moloka’i a journey made
So the name Kamehameha might never fade


Polynesian Work Of Art (Larry W. Jones 11/10/2002) (song#572)

You are my elegant lei for the evening time
A lei of flowers sweet as the sound of Maui chimes
You are the flower I desire in my heart
You are my lei, my polynesian work of art

The fire of love I feel when I’m with you
I loved you as the fragrant flowers from the start
Time will not this fire of love subdue
You are my lei, my polynesian work of art

For both of us the bloom of love has run
For you and I share love that’s just begun
In evening time the fire of love will start
You are my lei, my polynesian work of art

You are my elegant lei for the evening time
A lei of flowers sweet as the sound of Maui chimes
You are the flower I desire in my heart
You are my lei, my polynesian work of art
You are my lei, my polynesian work of art


This Dream And You (Larry W. Jones 11/10/2002) (song#573)

The night is fair as I gaze at you standing there
The moonlight plays it’s game of love, you see
Light from heavenly stars and soft steel guitars
Love for us it can only mean

Love and you were meant for me
Tonight you’re mine, I can see
This love will last eternally

Paradise for two in fair Hawaii
Has brought us from above
This night of love

Come into my arms with all your lovely charms
The moon is full for you and me

I dream with you in sweet reverie
You’re my dream come true
This dream of mine and you


Full Yellow Moon (Larry W. Jones 11/10/2002) (song#574)

Things that are small are those you recall
Like that yellow dress you wore
And a yellow flower in your hair
And you down by the shore

You had on a yellow dress
It was in the month of June
It was you I wanted to caress
Under that full yellow moon

Love was in the air all around us
Love was there and it found us

I recall your many charms
As I held you in my arms
Your smile I won’t forget
Like heaven when we met

You wore a yellow flower in your hair
It was in the month of June
Love was there for us to share
Under that full yellow moon


Sweet Destiny (Larry W. Jones 11/11/2002) (song#575)

I’ve loved you only, that you realize
My dreams you awake in this island boy’s life
The love in your face and the stars in your eyes
Tradewinds in your hair blow from sweet paradise

Leilani, beauty divine
Sweet destiny brought me a beautiful life
Leilani, beauty divine
Sweet destiny made you this island boy’s wife

This island of beauty and tropical sand
Brought treasures of love and a wedding band
I’ve loved you only, that you realize
My dreams you awake in this island boy’s life

Leilani, beauty divine
Sweet destiny brought me a beautiful life
Leilani, beauty divine
Sweet destiny made you this island boy’s wife

Leilani, beauty divine
Sweet destiny brought me a beautiful life
Leilani, beauty divine
Sweet destiny made you this island boy’s wife


Song Of Love To Be (Larry W. Jones 11/14/2002) (song#576)

I can feel that whenever you’re near
You’re the one who belongs to me
I can see and it’s perfectly clear
That you’re my song of love to be

I’m aware that my heart is glad
I can’t find a reason to ever be sad
Yesterday we were oceans apart
Today in Hawaii you stole my heart

I must have arrived here just in time
The islands have schemed a dream for two
If a dream can be as sweet as wine
Then the taste of mine is just like you

I can feel that whenever you’re near
You’re the one who belongs to me
I can see and it’s perfectly clear
That you’re my song of love to be
That you’re my song of love to be


You’re My Treasure Now (Larry W. Jones 11/15/2002) (song#577)

I wanted the rainbow’s pot of gold
But I don’t need it now
I found a treasure to have and hold
Baby, you’re my treasure now

I used to care what people might say
But I’m not worried now
One look at you down by the bay
And all they can say is wow

I was saving my pennies for a rainy day
But you bring island sunshine all the time
It’s been raining pennies from heaven
Since the day you said you’d be mine

I used to search for fortune and fame
But I’ve found both of them now
One day soon I’ll change your name
With that new wedding dress and vow


Heart Like Waters Falling (Larry W. Jones 11/15/2002) (song#578)

Like a fire in your eyes
Is the burning of the spell of a tropic isle
White is the gleaming of your smile
Bright as the stars in paradise

Swimming through the moonbeams
Your heart like waters falling
More than an island in the stream
Hawaii to your heart is calling

You remember all his kisses
Burning like the sand of the sea
Heart like an island drum is beating
Beating in waves of ecstacy

Like a fire in your eyes
Is the burning of the spell of a tropic isle
White is the gleaming of your smile
Bright as the stars in paradise


Wait ‘Til You See Sweet Leilani (Larry W. Jones 11/15/2002) (song#579)

There’s a polynesian queen
On the tropic island scene
As to beauty there’s no in-between
Wait ’til you see sweet Leilani

Her skin is brown, lips are pink
She’ll steal your heart in a wink
You don’t even have to think
Wait ’til you see sweet Leilani

She has those polynesian eyes
And a cute little turned up nose
She’s the pearly shell of paradise
Her kiss will curl your toes

So if it’s heaven you want to see
Answer the call from Hawaii
If it’s a dream you want to see
Wait ’til you see sweet Leilani


Slack Key Man (Larry W. Jones 11/15/2002) (song#580)

Over in the warm Hawaiian sand
There’s a slack-key guitar playin’ man
Nobody else can match him
When he’s got a hot guitar in his hand

Kiho’alu songs he’ll sing for you
With a slack-key Hawaiian tune
They just call him slack-key man
Under that Hawaiian tropic moon

The strings he plays so easily
It makes your heart go swoon
Romance will play so restlessly
And island love will blossom soon

When he plays those island notes
It sounds like an island symphony
Slack-key guitar is what he promotes
In sweet island guitar harmony

Kiho’alu songs he’ll sing for you
With a slack-key Hawaiian tune
They just call him slack-key man
Under that Hawaiian tropic moon


Vision In My Mind (Larry W. Jones 11/15/2002) (song#581)

I behold a vision in my mind
Reminding me of isles sublime
It’s a vision clearly seen

Pictures of deep blue oceans vast
Memories of beauty unsurpassed
Isles of love upon the sea
Hawaii

As the day is done and sunset falls
I can hear those tropic islands call
Calling out in my memory
Hawaii

For those isles of sweet delights I yearn
To those shores of love I must return
In my mind and heart you will always be
Hawaii

Those starlit nights and moonlit bays
Will ever in my mem’ry stay
I see again her lovely charms
The girl I held there in my arms

Why am I so alone and blue
I must return to see the vision that is you
My vision upon the deep blue sea
Hawaii


Slack Key Lady Cindy Combs (Larry W. Jones 11/15/2002) (song#582)

I saw the beauty of the islands out Kauai way
You can hear the slack-key guitars as they play
The slack-key lady will bring her guitar along
Cindy Combs in Hanapepe will sing to you this song

If you like-a slack-key lady slack-key lady like-a you
If you sing along then slack-key lady sing along with you
Cindy Combs will play a slack-key tune for me and you
Slack-key lady Cindy Combs sing-a slack-key song or two

She sings in Hanapepe on the west side of Kauai isle
Cindy Combs is slack-key lady with a lotta slack-key lady style
She’s a voice on the wind, she sends Aloha like a friend
Her songs are pretty preppy, that’s why Hanapepe smile

She will play slack-key for you in Hanapepe town
Cindy Combs will sing Hawaiian songs when sun go down
I remember memories of slack-key guitars played in style
The slack-key lady Cindy Combs will always make you smile

If you like-a slack-key lady slack-key lady like-a you
If you sing along then slack-key lady sing along with you
Cindy Combs will play a slack-key tune for me and you
Slack-key lady Cindy Combs sing-a slack-key song or two
Slack-key lady Cindy Combs sing like-a slack-key lady true


Pardon Me (Larry W. Jones 11/15/2002) (song#583)

Pardon me, you bring back a familiar name
Aren’t you the island girl who’s love was a sweet refrain
It seems like too many years ago
Yes you are, and your beauty only grows

Pardon me, I’m sure my heart is still in love with you
Nights alone are oh so lonely with my tears
My island days of sunshine have turned to blue
Since I left and now I miss your love so near

The love you gave was like a paradise for two
Pardon me, but I ran away just like a fool
The love you gave was an island love so true
Pardon me for treating so a love so cruel

Pardon me, you bring back a familiar name
Aren’t you the island girl who’s love was a sweet refrain
It seems like too many years ago
Yes you are, and your beauty only grows
Pardon me, I’m sure my heart is still in love with you


(Larry W. Jones 11/15/2002) (song#584)

Scan yon upon the restless sea
Unfurled the flags fly gallantly
A sailing ship on waves it plays
Bowsprit toward islands points the way

To hawaii we will go, oh
To hawaii we will sail
To hawaii we will go, ho
To hawaii we will sail

Those island girls with smiles aglow
So soft and sweet and kind
Upon the restless sea we go
So sad to leave your hearts behind

To arctic waters we will go, oh
To arctic waters we will sail
To arctic waters we will go, ho
To arctic waters we will sail

See those whales in arctic mist
See how those holds are filled
See now that sails are island set
We’ve had enough of arctic chill

To hawaii we will go, oh
To hawaii we will sail
To hawaii we will go, ho
To hawaii we will sail

Those island girls with smiles aglow
So soft and sweet and kind
Toward islands restless sailors go
No more in arctic seas confined

To hawaii we will go, oh
To hawaii we will sail
To hawaii we will go, ho
To hawaii we will sail


Hawaii Calls To Me Again (Larry W. Jones 11/16/2002) (song#585)

Today the life I live I disagree
Some day I’ll sail to islands fair
To islands green in deep blue seas
Hawaii calls me to you there

Some day my island love will sigh
Beneath tropic skies we’ll sleep
Hawaii’s call I cannot deny
From islands green in oceans deep

We’ll leave this life of pain and fear
To peaceful oceans we will go
We’ll grieve no more for now I hear
Hawaii’s call and peaceful tidal flow

Where the reef is white with ocean spray
And the skies are blue instead of grey
My love and I will steal away
When Hawaii calls to come and play

I can smell the fragrant blossoms there
I can see the mountains green
I can feel the tradewinds salty air
Hawaii calls me to that tropic scene

In my love’s arms beneath moonlit skies
Gone will be the rain
I’ll be with my heart in paradise
Hawaii calls to me again


Beyond The Horizon Line (Larry W. Jones 11/16/2002) (song#586)

There are seas so it’s been told to me
Where there’s an island in the stream
And when your dreams are called to mind
You find your heart must answer too

Beware ’cause life and time is ahead of you
That island in the stream is just a dream
And it’s just beyond the horizon line

Dreams are things that always seem to flow right through your hands
An island in the stream is such a dream, my man

If you reach out for that promised dream
In the sea of life where dreams can disappear
You learn too late of the fraudulent scheme
And the stream was not what it appeared

But now you’ve paid in life and time
That island in the stream is just a dream
And it’s just beyond the horizon line

Dreams are things that always seem to flow right through your hands
An island in the stream is such a dream, my man


Where Islands Lie (Larry W. Jones 11/16/2002) (song#587)

Over oceans blue where islands lie
Over oceans blue, there’s islands
Over oceans blue where islands lie
There’s paradise

Hawaii calls to me and you from oceans deep and blue
When Hawaii calls you’re heart must answer too

Where sails are red in the sunset sky
Where sails are red in the sunset
Where sails are red in the sunset sky
Ladies cry

Songs are sung in islands of the sea
Songs are sung in islands
Songs are sung in islands of the sea
Fair Hawaii

There’s rainbows over island waterfalls
There’s rainbows over islands
There’s rainbows over island waterfalls
Hawaii calls

Hawaii calls to me and you from oceans deep and blue
When Hawaii calls you’re heart must answer too


Warm Islands Shining In The Sun (Larry W. Jones 11/16/2002) (song#588)

In the red evening glow I see them
Warm islands shining in the sun
As I sailed away I knew that
My island days would never be undone

Islands are like leaves of September
They fall away and then there’s none
As I sail away I’ll always remember
Warm islands shining in the sun

Blue skies now are dark and dreary
My life of sail was dreams on the run
My thoughts return to places cheery
Warm islands shining in the sun

Another day I’ll point the bow toward blue skies
Again I’ll stroll with her in island sun
Then there will be no tears from my eyes
Warm islands shining in the sun
Warm islands shining in the sun


Like Paradise (Larry W. Jones 11/16/2002) (song#589)

Hear that tropic tradewind blow
It sounds like paradise
That steel guitar is playing slow
Light of love is in your eyes

Never have I felt a night like this
Birds of paradise go flying by
The moon is full and you I kiss
Your love, my heart can’t deny

I stroll with you down by the sea
When night begins to fall
Here is where my heart longs to be
I can hear Hawaii call

That steel guitar is playing slow
Stars light up the tropic skies
Our love will in these islands grow
You are my love in paradise


Horizons Behind (Larry W. Jones 11/16/2002) (song#590)

I’ve been sailing oceans deep
Counting fathoms instead of sheep
Where islands have gone I cannot say
Horizons behind where islands slipped away

I’ve been drifting through the stream
Of salty days and worn out dreams
Telling stories of islands I used to know
Those dreams over the horizon so long ago

Dreams today are of yesterday
Now I’m sailing against the wind
Islands in the stream are far away
In horizons behind lost like a friend

Now I feel the cold wind in the sails
I know my life was just stormy gales
The answers of islands in the stream
Are in horizons that are made of dreams

Dreams today are of yesterday
Now I’m sailing against the wind
Islands in the stream are far away
In horizons behind lost like a friend

The finest oceans on the tropic scene
Are the ones with islands in between
The horizon ahead and the one behind
It’s the only one where rainbows shine

Dreams today are of yesterday
Now I’m sailing against the wind
Islands in the stream are far away
In horizons behind lost like a friend

Dreams today are of yesterday
Now I’m sailing against the wind
Islands in the stream are far away
In horizons behind lost like a friend


Kapuna Kane’s Ways (Larry W. Jones 11/16/2002) (song#591)

He fishes from an outrigger canoe all day
It’s the island way
His skin is brown from the island sun
He’s an island native son

But on his face he always has a smile
It’s Aloha from a tropic isle
He told me about hurricane Iniki of ’92
How the winds blew over Kauai too

Beneath that blue Hawaiian sky
Kapuna Kane told me all about the island days
Beneath that blue Hawaiian sky
I remember what my grandpa had to say

Sometimes he talks about Kapuna Wahini’s grace
That’s the only time his smile might disappear
He describes how she had a smiling face
As he wipes away a tear

He was raised on fish and poi from a taro patch
His outrigger canoe was loaded with his catch
Kapuna Kane lived a simple life in paradise
I will miss his island ways and heed his advice

Beneath that blue Hawaiian sky
Kapuna Kane told me all about the island days
Beneath that blue Hawaiian sky
I remember what my grandpa had to say

Beneath that blue Hawaiian sky
Kapuna Kane told me all about the island days
Beneath that blue Hawaiian sky
I remember what my grandpa had to say


Cashed In Texas (Larry W. Jones 11/16/2002) (song#592)

All my checks are cashed in Texas
And Hawaii is the place I’d clearly like to be
But all my checks are cashed in Texas
And that’s why I can’t move to Hawaii

I’m overdrawn in San Antone
My well went bust instead of boom
Sweetwater has a daughter
Who thinks I can buy the moon
Eileen has made my paycheck lean
I’m in the red instead of green
And now they’re tearing down the Astrodome
Can’t even call the parking lot my home

All my checks are cashed in Texas
And Hawaii is the place I’d clearly like to be
But all my checks are cashed in Texas
And that’s why I can’t move to Hawaii

I think my fate has gone down the river
Don’t know if I can stay in the Lone Star state
Instead of eatin’ shrimp, I’m eatin’ liver
All my money’s tied up in probate
In my dreams I set sail for Hawaii
It sure is a beautiful sight
But then my dreams just sail away from me
Something in this picture just ain’t right

All my checks are cashed in Texas
And Hawaii is the place I’d clearly like to be
But all my checks are cashed in Texas
And that’s why I can’t move to Hawaii

Some people still think I’ve got money
But let me tell you honey
I don’t think I’ll ever get to Hawaii


The Mana Of Your Love (Larry W. Jones 11/16/2002) (song#593)

Your Aloha love keeps me happy all the time
My dream has been answered like a prayer
Polynesian eyes sparkle like the stars that shine
I feel the mana of your love beyond compare

You make the rainbows shine in skies of blue
When I’m with you then love is in the air
Every day you bring Aloha love to me anew
I feel the mana of your love beyond compare

Your love is like the flow of evening tide
Your love is what I take to heart with care
Love like yours could never be denied
I feel the mana of your love beyond compare

When night has come and you’re in moonlight
I smell the fragrance of the flower in your hair
Your Aloha love for me is one of earth’s delights
I feel the mana of your love beyond compare


Lahaina Bay Hula (Larry W. Jones 11/17/2002) (song#594)

Where the tourists play and the hulas sway
And the fun goes gaily at the island hop
I sailed away to a tropic day
When I got to Hawaii the anchor dropped

Here they say in Lahaina bay
Aloha to you, it’s the island way
The girls are brown, the never wear a frown
I met a hula girl in Lahaina town

The girls wear flowers in their hair
They dance the hula where tradewinds blow
I can’t compare here with anywhere
The Aloha here isn’t just for show

Here they say in Lahaina bay
Aloha to you, it’s the island way
The girls are brown, the never wear a frown
I met a hula girl in Lahaina town

Down at the beach any time of year
Hula girls dance and the island boys cheer
Fish and poi is really nice
And they even have Hinano Tahiti beer

Here they say in Lahaina bay
Aloha to you, it’s the island way
The girls are brown, the never wear a frown
I met a hula girl in Lahaina town


By Those Hawaiian Shores (Larry W. Jones 11/17/2002) (song#595)

Many tropic moons have come and gone
Since I sailed from my island home
In those Hawaiian isles
Where I was born

Many a tiki torch has gaily burned
Many are the times that I have yearned
To paddle my canoe back
Where I belong

Way over yonder in deep blue ocean
I Paddle my canoe to the local motion
By those Hawaiian shores where I was born

Way over yonder in deep blue ocean
An island boy’s life is a deep emotion
By those Hawaiian shores where I was born

I don’t fit here anyway
My dreams are miles and miles away
From where I paddled my canoe
Through that moonlit bay

Where the pandanus and the coco palm trees
Play in the tropic tradewind breeze
In those island sands
Where I belong

Way over yonder in deep blue ocean
I Paddle my canoe to the local motion
By those Hawaiian shores where I was born

Way over yonder in deep blue ocean
An island boy’s life is a deep emotion
By those Hawaiian shores where I was born


Fast Then Just Go Slow (Larry W. Jones 11/17/2002) (song#596)

There’s a bird flying in a paradise
It flies through the coco palms so high
It sings the songs I want to hear
Like songs of love when you are near

I want to sing you a song of paradise
I want to see the tropic stars in your eyes
I want you to know that I love you so
I want our love to grow fast then just go slow

Summer is the time for moonlit nights
Southern skies ablaze with stars in flight
Paradise and you make up heaven for me
The smile upon your face is just heavenly

I want to sing you a song of paradise
I want to see the tropic stars in your eyes
I want you to know that I love you so
I want our love to grow fast then just go slow

I want to sing you a song of paradise
I want to see the tropic stars in your eyes
I want you to know that I love you so
I want our love to grow fast then just go slow


Song Of My Dreams (Larry W. Jones 11/17/2002) (song#597)

As I dream in my sleep before the dawning
I hear a song I heard yesterday
I grope for you here but you are gone and
The song of my dreams goes away

So hard is the pain of the dreams that I’m seeing
Your embrace seems so real to me
My love for you is such that you surround
My dreams with a voice of ecstacy

Songs that I sing
In my dreams with the moon
Are just burning my heart anew

So I dream in my sleep before the dawning
And the hush of the night makes me cry
But the dreams of your face just keep spawning
The song of my dreams that says goodbye

Now as you go on your way to some love that’s new
Still, after the dawning, I still dream of you

So I dream in my sleep before the dawning
And the hush of the night makes me cry
But the dreams of your face just keep spawning
The song of my dreams that says goodbye

Now as you go on your way to some love that’s new
Still, after the dawning, I still dream of you


Sunday Manoa Beautiful Day (Larry W. Jones 11/17/2002) (song#598)

Sunday manoa, time to embark
I sing as I walk in Ala Moana park
Just as they say, a tropical day
My island girl waits down by the bay

Aloha sweet, Sunday manoa
It looks like a beautiful sunny day
Yesterday when you said you would be my love
Ala Moana today is as beautiful as the skies above

Shorebirds fly by, wings spread wide
As my arms welcome you here by my side
We’ll stroll in the sand, hand in hand
You’re my island girl and I’m your island man

Aloha sweet, Sunday manoa
It looks like a beautiful sunny day
Yesterday when you said you would be my love
Ala Moana today is as beautiful as the skies above

Shorebirds fly by, wings spread wide
As my arms welcome you here by my side
We’ll stroll in the sand, hand in hand
You’re my island girl and I’m your island man
It’s a Sunday manoa beautiful day


The Honey Of Your Smile (Larry W. Jones 11/17/2002) (song#599)

I see the moonlight magic in your polynesian eyes
Mangoes dipped in honey isn’t sweeter than your smile
Fairy tales of islands fair I thought were never true
But words just fail each time I sought
To explain a dream like you

Mangoes dipped in honey isn’t sweeter than your smile
My heart beats funny but it’s just this sunny isle
I see the moonlight magic in your polynesian eyes
My arms just want to hold you for awhile
And taste the honey of your smile

Tonight I’ll catch a falling star and put it in a jar
So I can light the darkest night to see just where you are
I’ll order up a rainbow in your favorite shade and hue
To crown our love in this our blue Hawaiian isle
And taste the honey of your smile

I see the moonlight magic in your polynesian eyes
Mangoes dipped in honey isn’t sweeter than your smile
Fairy tales of islands fair I thought were never true
But words just fail each time I sought
To explain a dream like you

Mangoes dipped in honey isn’t sweeter than your smile
My heart beats funny but it’s just this sunny isle
I see the moonlight magic in your polynesian eyes
My arms just want to hold you for awhile
And taste the honey of your smile


Six Hundred (Larry W. Jones 11/17/2002) (song#600)

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

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