From A King To Number Two (Larry W. Jones 12/31/2002) (song#801)

From a king to number two
From happiness somehow I’m missing you
The ace I played was stolen by a jack or two
I’m not the king of your heart

From a king to number two
I can’t forget how black it was that night
A younger buck played his hand just right
I’m not the king of your heart

It must have been your smile
He knew that he would win the game
That’s when I knew that I would lose my paradise

From a king to number two
From happiness somehow I’m missing you
The ace I played was stolen by a jack or two
I’m not the king of your heart

It must have been your smile
He knew that he would win the game
That’s when I knew that I would lose my paradise

From a king to number two
From happiness somehow I’m missing you
The ace I played was stolen by a jack or two
I’m not the king of your heart


How Could You (Larry W. Jones 12/31/2002) (song#802)

I heard an island yarn
You were seen in Waikiki again
I know you mean no harm
But where is that love we had back then

I wonder what to do
I can’t seem to get over you
I thought our love was true
How could you turn Hawaiian dreams to blue

I hope within my heart that you will still be true
Even as the teardrops start, I’m still in love with you

I wonder what to do
I can’t seem to get over you
I thought our love was true
How could you turn Hawaiian dreams to blue


I Listened To My Heart (Larry W. Jones 12/31/2002) (song#803)

I listened to my heart
You’re the island girl for me
You’re like a work of art
You fill my life with ecstasy

Were I to ever lose your love
From my eyes the tears would pour
For you are my island girl
On this tropic island shore

Oh, you’re the reason why a rainbow shines today
I listened to my heart, the words of love you had to say

I listened to my heart when it said you might
Fulfill my every dream, every magic island night

I listened to my heart
You’re the island girl for me
You’re like a work of art
You fill my life with ecstasy

Oh, you’re the reason why a rainbow shines today
I listened to my heart, the words of love you had to say

I listened to my heart when it said you might
Fulfill my every dream, every magic island night


Listen To Your Heart (Larry W. Jones 12/31/2002) (song#804)

You look like you’re feeling all alone
I know how it is when feeling low
On an island fill your heart with song
You’re not just an island in the stream I know

Tradewinds don’t whisper love to you alone
As it flows on to the sea
You and I don’t have to be alone
Let’s just listen to our hearts and see

A warm isle is made for love
So is a heart in need
There’s no need to be alone
Let’s just listen to our hearts and see

Whatever the past has done
Welcome to my island sun
If your heart is on the run
Listen to your heart and let me be the one

Tradewinds don’t whisper love to you alone
As it flows on to the sea
You and I don’t have to be alone
Let’s just listen to our hearts and see

Whatever the past has done
Welcome to my island sun
If your heart is on the run
Listen to your heart and let me be the one


An Island Woman’s Love (Larry W. Jones 12/31/2002) (song#805)

Nothing can compare to an island woman’s love
For I’m an island man, and I never feel alone or blue
So, if you have an island love, an island woman true
Then thank the stars above, and you be thankful too

Let her ever know, your love forever show
Be true to her in every deed and way
I’m sure you already know
You need her love each night and day

Nothing can compare to an island woman’s love
Because an island man is not an island in the stream
Let her be the one you’re always thinking of
Each island day and every night you dream

Her heart will show that she’s grateful
When you tell her I love you
There’s no cause to be unfaithful
Just be thankful she’s your dream come true

Nothing can compare to an island woman’s love
For I’m an island man, and I never feel alone or blue
So, if you have an island love, an island woman true
Then thank the stars above, and you be thankful too


Across The Ocean (Larry W. Jones 12/31/2002) (song#806)

This life has always been
A race that I am in
I’ve worn out these mainland shoes
I asked an island man one day
To see what he would say
Please, could I ask of you
Where is happiness and love that’s true

Across the ocean waiting there for you
Across the ocean you’ll find happiness
Across the ocean is your love so true
Islands in the sun with love are blessed

Follow your heart and it will bring
A life that’s not like a coiled up spring
Follow the sun and you will find
An island in the stream of slower time
Across the ocean there awaits for you
An island where life and love are true

Across the ocean waiting there for you
Across the ocean you’ll find happiness
Across the ocean is your love so true
Islands in the sun with love are blessed

Across the ocean waiting there for you
Across the ocean you’ll find happiness
Across the ocean is your love so true
Islands in the sun with love are blessed


Eventually (Larry W. Jones 12/31/2002) (song#807)

Eventually, you will fall in love with me
Eventually, my island bride is what you’ll be
Every promise that I ever made
Every one you know I’ve always paid
I know you’ll fulfill my dreams, eventually

Eventually, my dreams will all come true
Eventually, my dreams will be your’s too
Oh, please don’t pass me by
For I eventually would cry
Oh, please be mine, eventually

Eventually, I will own your heart I know
Eventually, tradewinds of love will flow
Then my dreams of you will really be
An island love here by the sea
And I will love you always, eventually


My Love For Loving You (Larry W. Jones 12/31/2002) (song#808)

Sweetheart, my love for loving you
Is the only love I want to do
The islands have been so blessed
With the beauty of your loveliness

Nowhere else could I ever find
Someone like you so sweet and kind
Sweetheart, my love for loving you
Is the only love I want to do

I was always in some second place
My run was, for love, a losing race
But then you came and my pain erased
An island angel blessed with heaven’s grace

When the years have come and gone
My love for loving you will be as strong
As this island anchored in the sea
My love for loving you is for eternity


Stop Sailing Here To Me (Larry W. Jones 12/31/2002) (song#809)

Ship of dreams, where are you sailing to
Sad to say, I’m sailing with you too
For I know how many dreams of her you’ve seen
And how you set your course and where you’ve been

When she’s oceans away, harbor lights grow dim
Are your sails the same as mine, torn because of him
And the ship of dreams that I sail, is adrift upon the sea
So, you just sail your dreams and lonely will I be

Ship of dreams, she said she found another
So, change your course and set her free
Ship of dreams, if you can’t stop thinking of her
Then ship of dreams, stop sailing here to me

When she’s oceans away, harbor lights grow dim
Are your sails the same as mine, torn because of him
And the ship of dreams that I sail, is adrift upon the sea
So, you just sail your dreams and lonely will I be

Ship of dreams, she said she found another
So, change your course and set her free
Ship of dreams, if you can’t stop thinking of her
Then ship of dreams, stop sailing here to me


Sugar Cane And Poi (Larry W. Jones 12/31/2002) (song#810)

I remember when you were just a little island girl
You lived across the bay
We played where the waves along the shore there curled
And I can still hear the old man say
Such a generous little island boy
The old island man would say
When I brought you sugar cane and poi
He knew that I would steal your heart away

Just a little sugar cane and poi
Were the things that I brought you
I remember when first you held my hand
I was so in love with you

Then the day of graduation came
I thought that things were still the same
But you longed for expensive mainland things
That a simple island boy just could not bring
Like the going of the tide
The love I knew would drift away to die
When you found your mainland love
To buy the things your heart was dreaming of

Just a little sugar cane and poi
Were the things that I brought you
I remember when first you held my hand
I was so in love with you

Little island girl with gold and pearls
And dreams of fancy mainland things
You left your island boy and waves that curl
And simple things like poi and sugar cane
But are your graduation dreams the same
Are they better than island skies
I thought I heard you call my name
Was that a teardrop in your polynesian eyes

Just a little sugar cane and poi
Were the things that I brought you
I remember when first you held my hand
I was so in love with you
I was so in love with you


Our Favorite Island Song (Larry W. Jones 01/01/2003) (song#811)

I put on our favorite island song
The one that you loved so
That song I’m humming but I’m so alone
Here where the tradewinds blow

I could go to Waikiki
And watch the luau show
But the girls would all be smiling
And I would shed a tear I know

So, I’ll stay here in my cottage by the sea
Wishing that you were here by me
And when I turn out the light
I might just cry again tonight

So, I’ll just hold tight to my pillow
While tears flow like a weeping willow
A dream I’m dreaming but I’m so alone
As I hum our favorite island song

A dream I’m dreaming but I’m so alone
As I hum our favorite island song


Gaggy Island Love Songs (Larry W. Jones 01/01/2003) (song#812)

I’ve been told my island songs of love are all so gaggy
I’m in puppy love so bad my tail is waggy
My pencil’s dull and both my eyes are baggy
I’m in love with an island girl named Maggie

Oh Maggie dear, are my island songs of love all so gaggy
Is it true that I’m just your lap dog and my tail is waggy
I’m just a hound dog for your love, that’s why my eyes are baggy
Oh dear, I’m in love with an island girl named Maggie

I’ve been told my island songs of love are all like honey
I’m so overdosed on puppy love it isn’t funny
Songs of island love just make my days so sunny
And Maggie’s kisses in the moonlight drip like honey

Oh Maggie dear, you know that I’m just a boy in love, a Texas Aggie
Oh Maggie dear, I know you love me even if my island songs of love are gaggy

I’ve been told my island songs of love are all like honey
I’m so overdosed on puppy love it isn’t funny
Songs of island love just make my days so sunny
And Maggie’s kisses in the moonlight drip like honey
They’re not funny
They’re just gaggy


Here I Am Loving You (Larry W. Jones 01/01/2003) (song#813)

Here I am loving you
My dreams have all come true
Somehow I always knew
That I would wed lovely you

I know that you are happy too
I wished upon a star and I knew
Our love is fresh as island dew
Here I am loving you

You were just the girl for me
You’re my dream, my reverie
I felt love whispered on tradewinds
Here on this island in the sea

Here I am loving you
My dreams have all come true
Somehow I always knew
That I would wed lovely you

You were just the girl for me
You’re my dream, my reverie
I felt love whispered on tradewinds
Here on this island in the sea

Here I am loving you
My dreams have all come true
Somehow I always knew
That I would wed lovely you


Legend Of Leilani (Larry W. Jones 01/01/2003) (song#814)

Many years ago, on an island in the sea
There lived a lovely maiden named sweet Leilani
And this polynesian maiden loved no one else but me
We were true lovers on our island in the sea

Our love was the deepest love, mine and Leilani
Love like ours was sent from Heaven to our island in the sea
But then, for no reason, on our island in the sea
An arctic wind blew strangely, and froze her love, the love of my sweet Leilani

Then the island chieftans came and took her away, my Leilani
To offer her to Pele on our island in the sea
Who could be so jealous, so as to envy her and me
To send an arctic wind to freeze her love, here on our island in the sea

But our love was such a love
That no strange thing could end our destiny
Love that was sent from Heaven to our island in the sea
Love that was a true love, mine and my Leilani

And neither Pele nor the chieftains on our island in the sea
Could ever hope to seperate the love we had, mine from Leilani

Because the tropic moon would always beam
It’s love upon our island dreams
The dreams of mine and Leilani

And the heavenly stars would always shine
Starlight of love within her eyes
Starlight of love for sweet Leilani

And now every night I am here by the side
Of my sweet Leilani, my lovely island bride
On our island in the sea
Me and my island love, my sweet Leilani


After A Country Mile (Larry W. Jones 01/01/2003) (song #815)

After a country mile
After I cry awhile
Maybe then I can learn again
How to smile

Oh, I’m sure I’ll love again
But my heart will surely cry til then
My heart will break like waves upon the reef
Of this tropic isle

As yesterday, my heart will always yearn
I guess it will never learn
That love can come and love can go
Just as the tradewinds blow

After a country mile
After I cry awhile
Maybe then I can learn again
How to smile
After a country mile


Please Forgive Me Darling (Larry W. Jones 01/01/2003) (song#816)

I didn’t mean to wound our love today
I didn’t mean those careless words I didn’t have to say
I didn’t mean for love to go astray
Please forgive me darling, please forgive

I didn’t mean for words to cause you pain
I never want our love to be in vain
I’m sorry if I caused you any strain
Please forgive me darling, please forgive

Life and love can be a challenge that can lead a love astray
Forgiveness in the little things can mean that love will stay

Forgive me darling for those thoughtless things I do
Forgive me darling if I ever make you blue
Help me darling and our love each day renew
Please forgive me darling, please forgive


You’re A Tropic Island Star (Larry W. Jones 01/01/2003) (song#817)

Are you the star that fell last night like love into my arms
I’ve got falling stars here in my pocket but you’re the brightest that I’ve seen
You must be the brightest one because of all your charms
This could be the start of love and the filling of my dream

A flaming star, that’s what you seem to be
A falling star is what you are and that’s just fine with me
I see love so clear, you can’t be from the Milky Way
You’re a tropic island star and with me on this island you will stay

A falling star, a shooting star, a flaming star of love
I have a pocket full of stars but you’re the one I love

A flaming star, that’s what you seem to be
A falling star is what you are and that’s just fine with me
I see love so clear, you can’t be from the Milky Way
You’re a tropic island star and with me on this island you will stay


No Bigger Fool Than I (Larry W. Jones 01/01/2003) (song#818)

Excuse me if I get emotional
When you tell me goodbye
Don’t get upset or too critical
If I begin to cry

After your love is gone
I’ll still dream between the lies
Here on this isle alone
There’s no bigger fool than I

Here on this isle alone
There’s no bigger fool than I
Here in this tropic zone
I’m now alone in paradise

There’s no bigger fool than I
Even here in paradise
But even though I’m a fool
I’ll love you til I die

After your love is gone
I’ll still dream between the lies
Here on this isle alone
There’s no bigger fool than I

I guess there’s no bigger fool than I


This First Greeting Card (Larry W. Jones 01/01/2003) (song#819)

There’s an old faded greeting card in my little cottage I adore
Sweet are the memories that it brings back to me
It’s faded and it’s torn, and it looks so forlorn
But it was the first greeting card you sent to me

I still read every line and the love that’s in between
My heart is just as soft because I still cry it seems
Excuse me while another tear falls gently where it’s marred
It’s a tear for memories of when you sent this first greeting card

I always feel so sentimental when your memory is near
Every time someone sends a greeting card I cry another tear
They all remind me of the time when our love was new and dear
The poems all rhyme but not in time with the beating of my lonely heart this year

I still read every line and the love that’s in between
My heart is just as soft because I still cry it seems
Excuse me while another tear falls gently where it’s marred
It’s a tear for memories of when you sent this first greeting card
Excuse me while another tear falls gently where it’s marred
It’s a tear for memories of when you sent this first greeting card

Sailin’ The Black Ball Line (Larry W. Jones 01/01/2003) (song#820)

Well I’m a salty dog, sailin’ with the flow
I’ve sailed ships from Singapore to Hawaii’s tropic shores
From sunny skies to arctic climes where the ice will sting your hide
I never saved a dime but I had a good time sailin’ on the Black Ball Line

Singin’, On the Black Ball line I sailed the brine
Sail away, sail away
On the Black Ball Line you don’t make a dime
Sail away on the Black Ball Line

We sailed into old Lahaina
In old Maui on a balmy day
I spent my money on rum and whiskey
In a seaside bar down by the bay
I kissed a girl but I wasn’t sober
And I kissed her at least one time more
When I awoke the night was over
And I was layin’ on the bar room floor

Singin’, On the Black Ball line I sailed the brine
Sail away, sail away
On the Black Ball Line you don’t make a dime
Sail away on the Black Ball Line

When the wind is right in polynesia
And the sails are set for sailin’ the brine
Don’t look for me ’cause I will be
Sailin’ on the Black Ball Line
I can’t sit still even in paradise
I guess I’m just that kind
I’ll be sailin’ and payin’ the price
Sailin’ on the Black Ball Line

Singin’, On the Black Ball line I sailed the brine
Sail away, sail away
On the Black Ball Line you don’t make a dime
Sail away on the Black Ball Line

Singin’, On the Black Ball line I sailed the brine
Sail away, sail away
On the Black Ball Line you don’t make a dime
Sail away on the Black Ball Line


Golden Lei Of Love (Larry W. Jones 01/01/2003) (song#821)

On the islands there’s more than sunsets of gold you see
Ohana is the way of life when a friend is found in need
The golden rule is heartfelt love in golden sand
You and I can always do the very best we can

The island sun is sinking low
What will your thinking be when you must go
Will your deeds be iron or will they be gold
Maybe you still have time to break the mold

When travelling on those island roads
Can you find time to lift your neighbor’s load
Paint some rainbows in the skies
Wear a golden lei of love in paradise

The island sun is sinking low
What will your thinking be when you must go
Will your deeds be iron or will they be gold
Maybe you still have time to break the mold

When travelling on those island roads
Can you find time to lift your neighbor’s load
Paint some rainbows in the skies
Wear a golden lei of love in paradise


Shorebreak Hotel (Larry W. Jones 01/01/2003) (song#822)

Sweetheart, I’m sending word in case you haven’t heard
You’re free of me since it’s another you preferred
I know you apologized but that’s not all, you see
The stones you threw have broken my heart
And broken my dreams on this island in the sea
But if your new love affair starts to descend
You can find me here with all my lonely friends

I’m on the windward side of the isle
Where the cold tradewinds blow
In room zero at the Shorebreak Hotel
Where broken hearts and dreams all go
It has a bar called Teardrop Inn
Where island dreams like mine all end
They never close, open all the time
For island love at the end of the line

The back wall has a window that looks at the past
The aisle is straight and narrow, not wide enough to pass
Somebody tried to smile in the mirror and broke the glass
The tiki torch is never lit, the fire of love is out
It’s real quiet in here, you don’t need to shout
I’ve got lots of friends here, they’re all about
And only your love can free my mind and let me out

I’m on the windward side of the isle
Where the cold tradewinds blow
In room zero at the Shorebreak Hotel
Where broken hearts and dreams all go
It has a bar called Teardrop Inn
Where island dreams like mine all end
They never close, open all the time
For island love at the end of the line


Blue, Blue Island Boy (Larry W. Jones 01/01/2003) (song#823)

Blue, blue island boy
That’s what they call me only
Because I’m so blue and lonely
Since you went away

Blue, blue island boy
They call me blue, blue island boy
You’ve found a new island love and joy
And now I’m so blue over you

The stars used to twinkle in the sky
But now they all just hide when I go by
I remember when island love was sweet and new
Now the sweetness is gone along with you

Blue, blue island boy
I’ll just be a blue, blue island boy
Until you need again a love that’s true
Like my love for only you

Blue, blue island boy
I’ll just be a blue, blue island boy
Until you need again a love that’s true
Like my love for only you


Love’s Island Song (Larry W. Jones 01/01/2003) (song#824)

There was a time when island life was lonely
Cold reality resided in my lonely heart
But when you came and became my only
Warm dreams returned for love to start

Your love is like a treasure from above
You’re my island angel sent here for love
Is it reality or a dream come true
You, my dream, came from the blue

All the time when island life was lonely
I tried and tried to understand
But now it doesn’t matter, for I’m not lonely
Here with you in this island sand

Your love is like a treasure from above
You’re my island angel sent here for love
Is it reality or a dream come true
You, my dream, came from the blue

All the time when island life was lonely
I tried and tried to understand
But now it doesn’t matter, for I’m not lonely
Here with you in this island sand

Now that you’re here, I’m not lonely
My life was saved by my one and only
The future’s bright since you came along
You brought with you love’s island song


Be Honest And True (Larry W. Jones 01/01/2003) (song#825)

Dear, whatever you do, be honest and true
Be true all the time, and remember you’re my sailor man, you’re mine
When you sail on the sea, be thinking of me
If you’re honest and true, my heart goes with you

If you’re honest and true, my heart won’t break
My dreams will see me through, my hands won’t quake
You’re everything to me, my sailor man you see
If you’re honest and true, I will love only you

Be honest with me, be true when you’re sailing over the blue
Be true to me, and my heart goes with you

Dear, whatever you do, be honest and true
Be true all the time, and remember you’re mine
When you sail on the sea, be thinking of me
If you’re honest and true, my heart goes with you


Guiding Star Of Love (Larry W. Jones 01/01/2003) (song#826)

My love sails by a guiding star
That star of love I just can’t do without
It leads me to the place you are
Where love has, this heart of mine, won out

When love transverses rain and storm
Sailing through the darkest hours
Just the thought of you will transform
The storm into just rainbow showers

No gales, no broken spars, no fears
Will bar my way to you
That star of love I just can’t do without
Will be my guiding star, no doubt

When love traverses rain and storm
Sailing through the darkest hours
Just the thought of you will transform
The storm into just rainbow showers

No gales, no broken spars, no fears
Will bar my way to you
That star of love I just can’t do without
Will be my guiding star, no doubt


In The Warm Sandwich Islands (Larry W. Jones 01/01/2003) (song#827)

In the warm Sandwich Islands
Tradewinds whisper through palm trees
And birds of paradise are calling
Me back to sweet Leilani

From far across the sea, they call to me
And my heart is wishing for you
For the warm Sandwich Islands
And Leilani, I’m missing you

In the warm Sandwich Islands, far across the sea
There my heart is wishing, for tradewinds of love and Leilani

In the warm Sandwich Islands
Tradewinds whisper through palm trees
And birds of paradise are calling
Me back to sweet Leilani

From far across the sea, they call to me
And my heart is wishing for you
For the warm Sandwich Islands
And Leilani, I’m missing you


Blue Island Shoes (Larry W. Jones 01/01/2003) (song#828)

I’ve got island blues down to my shoes
I can’t seem to shake
I’ve got island blues down to my shoes
What road will they take
If I had known that love had flown
Like birds away from paradise lands
I would have left these blue island shoes
For you there in blue Hawaiian sands

Love, like tradewinds, has gone
Those dreams I couldn’t hold
Instead of being warm
Tradewinds of love are cold
Is there nothing I can say
To lose these island blues
Will there come a sunny day
To remove these blue island shoes

It must be the season for rain
But it’s not from the sky
I must be crying again
From my heart and my eyes
Everything’s wrong and nothing’s right
Since you left me so blue
Even the moon doesn’t come out at night
Since I’m wearing these blue island shoes


Rainbows And Moonbeams (Larry W. Jones 01/02/2003) (song#829)

Rainbows, smilin’ down on me
All I see are rainbows, endlessly
Birds of paradise, flyin’ along
Birds of paradise, singin’ island songs

The stars never looked brighter at night
Me and my baby, holdin’ her tight
Even the moonbeams, upon the sea
Lookin’ like lovebeams, to my baby and me

Rainbows, moonbeams, birds and the bees
All I see is lovin’ my baby, endlessly

Rainbows, smilin’ down on me
All I see are rainbows, endlessly
Birds of paradise, flyin’ along
Birds of paradise, singin’ island songs

The stars never looked brighter at night
Me and my baby, holdin’ her tight
Even the moonbeams, upon the sea
Lookin’ like lovebeams, to my baby and me

Rainbows, smilin’ down on me
All I see are rainbows, endlessly


Born To Be An Island Boy (Larry W. Jones 01/02/2003) (song#830)

I was born to be an island boy, as an island boy should be
Born to be an island boy, in a cottage by the sea
Born to be an island boy, that’s the life for me
They just call me Coconut Joe, Coconut Joe from Hawaii

Born in the islands where the tradewinds blow so free
Born in the islands with island sand between my toes
Just born to be an island boy, everybody can see
Just call me an island boy, call me Coconut Joe

Born to be an island boy, an island boy in love
Born to be an island boy, with my girl under stars above
Born to be in love, and my girl’s in love with me
She just calls me Coconut Joe, Coconut Joe that’s me

Born in the islands where the tradewinds blow so free
Born in the islands with island sand between my toes
Just born to be an island boy, everybody can see
Just call me an island boy, call me Coconut Joe


Tradewind Island Breeze (Larry W. Jones 01/02/2003) (song#831)

Tradewind island breeze, you took her from my life
She was to be my polynesian island wife
Hear my plea, give ear to me

I’m beggin’ you with sand on my knees
Bring back my love, tradewind island breeze
Return my island girl back here to me

Where that ill wind came from nobody knows
I thought the trades brought happy days
Where that ill wind goes from nobody knows
But it blew my island love away

Tradewind island breeze, now look, my girl is gone
I’ve been blue since early dawn
Can’t figure out what’s goin’ on

I heard you whisperin’ through palm trees
Island breeze
When I woke up all alone
She was gone

Tradewind island breeze, you took her from my life
She was to be my polynesian island wife
Hear my plea, give ear to me

I’m beggin’ you with sand on my knees
Bring back my love, tradewind island breeze
Return my island girl back here to me

I’m begging you with sand on my knees
Bring back my love, tradewind island breeze
Return my island girl back here to me


Down In Polynesia (Larry W. Jones 01/02/2003) (song#832)

Well, have you ever seen that polynesian queen
When the island sun is all aglow
You can see romancin’
Everywhere you’re glancin’
And the island drums are beating so
When that polynesian queen gets you in between
The moon and all the stars all alone
Then you’ll realize she’s from paradise
And you might as well have left your heart at home

Down in polynesia you’ll never get amnesia
When your legs go limp and you’re right there in her arms
And from the smile she makes you’ve made a big mistake
If you ever think of escaping from her charms

Winds in the palm trees sigh as love goes by
And you sing kinda funny island songs
People wonder what the heck is wrong with you
Have you been drinkin’ much too long
But they understand a polynesian band
Makes the feet go skippin’ down the line
And before you know, you’re singin’ funny island songs
With those polynesian girls divine

Down in polynesia you’ll never get amnesia
When your legs go limp and you’re right there in her arms
And from the smile she makes you’ve made a big mistake
If you ever think of escaping from her charms


Falling In Love (Larry W. Jones 01/02/2003) (song#833)

It may sound strange
But I feel a change
No, I’m not deranged
I think I may be falling in love

At four o’clock
I fell off the dock
But I’m not crocked
I think it’s your intoxicating love

My eyes were blurred
Every time you purred
It’s just what I preferred
I think I may be falling in love

And I couldn’t resist
Your first little kiss
Now it’s what I insist
I think I may be falling in love

My heart’s in love’s evolution
There’s no solution
There’s only one resolution
I need a lot of your love

And I couldn’t resist
Your first little kiss
Now it’s what I insist
I think I may be falling in love
I think I may be falling in love


Everybody Knows It’s You (Larry W. Jones 01/02/2003) (song#834)

The island’s all aglow
No matter where you go
The island’s all aglow
And rainbows shine on you

Island flowers love you too
They put on their shows
You’re as fresh as the dew
On a pretty island rose

The islands say Aloha, I know
They just love you so

Who has the kisses sweeter than wine
Fresh as the dew, like an island rose
Everybody knows
It’s you, yes it’s you

The island’s all aglow
No matter where you go
The island’s all aglow
And rainbows shine on you

Who has the kisses sweeter than wine
Fresh as the dew, like an island rose
Everybody knows
It’s you, yes it’s you
Everybody knows
It’s you


Old Tropic Polynesian Moon (Larry W. Jones 01/02/2003) (song#835)

That old tropic polynesian moon just keeps on glowing
Shining on my love there by the sea
To that old tropic polynesian moon I’ll be going
Beam your lovelight on her there for me

You can sing about your blue moon of Kentucky
You may even see a blue moon if you’re lucky
But there’s only one under which I want to croon
It’s that big, yellow, old tropic polynesian moon

Keep shining beams of lovelight there upon your tropic sea
Old tropic polynesian moon waiting there for me

You can sing about your blue moon of Kentucky
You may even see a blue moon if you’re lucky
But there’s only one under which I want to croon
It’s that big, yellow, old tropic polynesian moon
That old tropic polynesian moon


Cryin’ In My Soul (Larry W. Jones 01/02/2003) (song#836)

I thought kisses were a lover’s occupation
How can warm kisses grow so very cold
Without your love I have no destination
I’m Cryin’ in my soul

Broken hearts that always seem to lose
When there’s no other love like yours to hold
No wonder I feel so confused
I’m Cryin’ in my soul

I’ll keep searchin’ for someone to share my dreams
Even though they’re currently on hold
I’ll keep tryin’ every lover’s scheme
Cryin’ in my soul

Tears just disappear here in this island sand
And tradewinds blow so cold
I wonder if she’s found another island man
I’m cryin’ in my soul

I’ll keep searchin’ for someone to share my dreams
Even though they’re currently on hold
I’ll keep tryin’ every lover’s scheme
Cryin’ in my soul


Smiling Mood (Larry W. Jones 01/02/2003) (song#837)

People wonder why I smile every day
There’s only one reason to conclude
I’m no more lonely since you came to stay
So smiling is my favorite mood

Lately I’ve been sleeping well at night
Dreams of you I always do include
Your love I dwell upon with great delight
So smiling is my favorite mood

I can’t resist spending too much time with you
Even though I know it might be rude
I just like strolling down the beach with you
And smiling is my favorite mood

People wonder why I smile every day and what it is that I’m up to
I guess that I’m just up to here in love with you

I like to hold you close and kiss goodnight
And I like the way you like it too
Soon our futures will be one and bright
So smiling is my favorite mood


Moody Moon (Larry W. Jones 01/02/2003) (song#838)

Moody moon, why are you hiding from the sky
Moody moon, I would like to hear your reason why
Is it because you’ve lost your grandeur
Moody moon, just what are you thinking of
And why don’t you shine upon my love

Islands are made for love and I need to know if you’ll be shining soon
But you’ve left the sky so dark and I’m so blue, Moody moon

Moody moon, why are you hiding from the sky
Moody moon, I would like to hear your reason why
Is it because you’ve lost your grandeur
Moody moon, just what are you thinking of
And why don’t you shine upon my love

Moody moon, why are you hiding from the sky
Moody moon, I would like to hear your reason why
Is it because you’ve lost your grandeur
Moody moon, just what are you thinking of
And why don’t you shine upon my love
Moody moon


Tender Hearts Of Island People (Larry W. Jones 01/02/2003) (song#839)

I love those tender hearts of island people
Who live in old Lahaina town
I love those tender hearts of island people
On the island when the sun goes down

They serve me rice and poi every Sunday
As every island boy there knows
When I return I’ll build a cottage someday
And grow in love just like an island rose

I can feel Ohana, and I show love in return
Hearts of gold when the sun is going down
I love those tender hearts of island people
Who show me love in old Lahaina town

They’re the heart of the islands and they show love without bounds
I love those tender hearts of island people in old Lahaina town

They serve me rice and poi every Sunday
As every island boy there knows
When I return I’ll build a cottage someday
And grow in love just like an island rose

I can feel Ohana, and I show love in return
Hearts of gold when the sun is going down
I love those tender hearts of island people
Who show me love in old Lahaina town


I Could Tell You (Larry W. Jones 01/02/2003) (song#840)

I could tell you that her eyes reflect the tropic stars
I could tell you just how lucky you are
If she smiles and makes your heart glow
Just remember that I told you so
Your new girl is the one who let me go

I could tell you how it feels when you hold her close
I could tell you how good she looks in island clothes
If she reminds you of a lovely island rose
Just remember that I told you so
Your new girl is the one who let me go

Don’t tell me about the things I already know
Don’t tell me the way she sings love songs I wrote
I could tell you about hearts when they’re broke
Just remember that I told you so
Your new girl is the one who let me go

Your new girl is the one who let me go and I loved that girl so long
Let me tell you, it hurts to be alone

I could tell you about buying diamond rings
I could tell you about her secret flings
And let me tell you before I go
Just remember that I told you so
Your new girl is the one who let me go


Wooin’ Wahinis (Larry W. Jones 01/02/2003) (song#841)

I’m sailin’ back from old Maui isle
Where there’s love on the tradewind breeze
Me head’s a-hurtin’ and so’s me eyes
From drinkin’ island rum and wooin’ wahinis

That wahini done me wrong but I’ll not complain
Her kiss I can’t forget and I need not explain
For all ye sailors have been knocked to your knees
From drinkin’ island rum and wooin’ wahinis

Oh, me head’s a-hurtin’ tonight
Them island maidens are outta sight
But I’m still havin’ dreams in me misery
From drinkin’ island rum and wooin’ wahinis

Moonlight and tropic stars are a-beamin’
Tradewinds from the isles are a-streamin’
How to sail back soon I’m a-schemin’
For drinkin’ island rum and wooin’ wahinis

Oh, me head’s a-hurtin’ tonight
Them island maidens are outta sight
But I’m still havin’ dreams in me misery
From drinkin’ island rum and wooin’ wahinis

Moonlight and tropic stars are a-beamin’
Tradewinds from the isles are a-streamin’
How to sail back soon I’m a-schemin’
For drinkin’ island rum and wooin’ wahinis


My Wondering Heart (Larry W. Jones 01/03/2003) (song#842)

Every beat of my wondering heart
Lets me know that I love you still
Every night and every day that we’re apart
My dreams of you are fulfilled

No matter how far from me that you wander
I’ll love you here or in islands over yonder
I’ll love you in fair weather or in thunder
With every beat of my wondering heart

Every beat of my wondering heart
Lets me know that there must be a way
To make these wondering thoughts depart
And bring you back to me some day

I know I should go and have some fun
With some old flame that went asunder
But I know that for me you’re the only one
With every beat of my wondering heart

I know I should go and have some fun
With some old flame that went asunder
But I know that for me you’re the only one
With every beat of my wondering heart


Every Time I Leave (Larry W. Jones 01/03/2003) (song#843)

Every time I leave, you have a little cry
I may look foolish but darling, so do I
No matter how many times I have to be away
Each time we say goodbye
We know we’re gonna cry

Every time I leave, you have a little cry
If I said I didn’t miss you, that would be a lie
So hold me close give me a kiss goodbye
Each time we say goodbye
We know we’re gonna cry

Every time we say goodbye, I know that I will miss your smile
I’ll bring you a souvenier from some tropic isle

Every time I leave, you have a little cry
I may look foolish but darling, so do I
No matter how many times I have to be away
Each time we say goodbye
We know we’re gonna cry

Every time I leave, you have a little cry
If I said I didn’t miss you, that would be a lie
So hold me close give me a kiss goodbye
Each time we say goodbye
We know we’re gonna cry


Seven Seas, Seven Oceans (Larry W. Jones (01/03/2003) (song#844)

On the ocean the ship’s lights are burning
I dream of you and call your name
Your laughter and smile has me yearning
For the time when I’ll see you again

Seven seas between us
Seven oceans with gales
Seven seas between us
Back to your love I’ll sail

When I’m in port and just waiting
I think about you through the day
Your love keeps my heart beating
So keep your dreams drifting my way

Seven seas between us
Seven oceans with gales
Seven seas between us
Back to your love I’ll sail

I see your star in the heavens
Even through storms that roar
I’ll sail over the oceans seven
Til you’re in my arms once more

Seven seas between us
Seven oceans with gales
Seven seas between us
Back to your love I’ll sail
Back to your love I’ll sail


Oh Sailor Heart Of Mine (Larry W. Jones 01/03/2003) (song#845)

Oh sailor heart when you set sails to the wind
The words you spoke to her come to an end
You forget those island days
And her simple polynesian ways
You look for another foreign face
Throughout your sailor days

Oh, listen as that fog horn blows
Your sailor heart, away it goes
Sailor heart, you want a love
But to wed you’re not inclined
When will you find peace of mind
Oh sailor heart of mine

I met a girl in Bora Bora with polynesian eyes
She said that I could adore her but that I was not her type
She wanted a little cottage by the bay
And a man who wouldn’t roam, but stay
So I’ll search for a girl until I find
One with a sailor heart like mine

Oh, listen as that fog horn blows
Your sailor heart, away it goes
Sailor heart, you want a love
But to wed you’re not inclined
When will you find peace of mind
Oh sailor heart of mine

Oh sailor heart see the moon that shines upon the sea
And hear the tradewinds say there’s many lands to see
In fair Hawaii there are many wahinis
Where love is whispered in the winds
And there are many more in the southern seas
Oh sailor heart, my friend

Oh, listen as that fog horn blows
Your sailor heart, away it goes
Sailor heart, you want a love
But to wed you’re not inclined
When will you find peace of mind
Oh sailor heart of mine
Oh sailor heart of mine


Faded Memories Of Island Years (Larry W. Jones 01/03/2003) (song#846)

A dream of a tropic moon is all I have
And, oh yes, those island flowers dear
Then there’s those times I loved only you
Now there’s only faded memories of island years

Faded memories of island years
Clearly I can’t hold back the tears
All I have are empty souveniers
And faded memories of island years

Now our yellow tropic moon is blue
Like these faded memories of island years with you
Faded memories why can’t you see the pain
The dreams that you bring are all in vain

Faded memories of island years
Clearly I can’t hold back the tears
All I have are empty souveniers
And faded memories of island years

A dream of a tropic moon is all I have
And, oh yes, those island flowers dear
Then there’s those times I loved only you
Now there’s only faded memories of island years

Faded memories of island years
Clearly I can’t hold back the tears
All I have are empty souveniers
And faded memories of island years


I’ll Never Be Lonely (Larry W. Jones 01/03/2003) (song#847)

I’ll never be lonely
I’ll never be blue
Since I’ve been loved by someone
Someone like you

I’ll never ever be sorry
A mistake this cannot be
For the change that you’ve brought me
Loneliness I’ll never see

Because the love that you’re giving
Fills up all my heart
You’re the reason I’m living
Our love will never part

Your love brought life anew
That’s why I tell you true
I’ll never been lonely
I’ll never been blue

I’ll never ever be sorry
A mistake this cannot be
For the change that you’ve brought me
Loneliness I’ll never see

Your love brought life anew
That’s why I tell you true
I’ll never be lonely
I’ll never be blue


And Then We’ll Go (Larry W. Jones 01/03/2003) (song#848)

Sway your hula hips in that island tropic zone
I intend to get together and take you home
There in the sand where the tradewinds whisper low
I will whisper words of love true, and then we’ll go

Listen to me, I need your love, yes I do
I’ll be holding you the long night through
Your love is kind, made up my mind, our love will flow
You’re the one dear, soon I’ll be near, and then we’ll go

You can sway your hula way here real slow
When I’m there in that island sand
I do love you, I’m sure you know
Darling, I’m your island man

Sway your hula hips in that island tropic zone
I intend to get together and take you home
There in the sand where the tradewinds whisper low
I will whisper words of love true, and then we’ll go


Old Maui Home (Larry W. Jones 01/03/2003) (song#849)

I’ve been sailing ships all of my life
The sea has been my home through calm and strife
I left the island young, the world to roam
But now I want to see my folks there in my island home

Old Maui, where the sun is warm
Where rainbows shine, the weather’s fine
Old Maui, where island men stand tall
Where hearts are warm, and the tradewinds call

Those old talk stories that my Papa would tell
Where I played on the beach and listened to sea shells
We would sit for hours under tall palm trees
And Papa talked about stories when he went to sea

Old Maui, where the sun is warm
Where rainbows shine, the weather’s fine
Old Maui, where island men stand tall
Where hearts are warm, and the tradewinds call

And my Mama brought me joy, I was her island boy
After all my sailin’, love is something time can’t destroy
Mama, I got your letter that you sent months ago
And I’m sailin’ home because I miss you and Papa so

Old Maui, where the sun is warm
Where rainbows shine, the weather’s fine
Old Maui, where island men stand tall
Where hearts are warm, and the tradewinds call


Heartache On Island Time (Larry W. Jones 01/03/2003) (song#850)

Here in the islands, we love on island time
Things happen slower when you live on island time
My dreams slowly disappeared, a love I thought was mine
I’m headed for a heartache, heartache on island time

Heartache on island time
Heartbreak that’s only mine
To me, that girl was so divine
Heartache on island time

I listened as he told me about an island girl he found
He said she was a beauty and sweet as Maui chimes
I knew from his description, that girl used to be mine
I’m headed for a heartache, heartache on island time

Heartache on island time
Heartbreak that’s only mine
To me, that girl was so divine
Heartache on island time

He said her eyes were polynesian, she was tall and tan
I slowly looked the other way ’cause crying’s out of line
I wished him well but I couldn’t tell just when my tears began
I’m headed for a heartache, heartache on island time

Heartache on island time
Heartbreak that’s only mine
To me, that girl was so divine
Heartache on island time


Oceans To Nowhere (Larry W. Jones 01/03/2003) (song#851)

I’m sailin’ the oceans to nowhere
I lost the charts pointing toward your heart
And this old compass doesn’t seem to care
I’m lost just sailin’ the oceans for your heart

This ocean to nowhere has no horizon line
Your heart’s out there somewhere, somewhere in time
My ship of dreams has lost its sails and it’s rudder too
I’m lost in the stream of time and my heart is on the line

I’ve sailed this dream ship on these oceans of lost love so long
And I can’t find the way back to the safety of your heart
On these oceans to nowhere that I’m sailin’ on
I wonder if I lost your love from the very start

These blue oceans to nowhere I’ll keep sailin’ on
The waves are dark but I’ll keep dreamin’ on
Maybe I’ll find that horizon in that tropic zone
And find your heart in these oceans to nowhere that I’m on


Slow Waikiki Waltz (Larry W. Jones 01/03/2003) (song#852)

The island music played slowly where soft tradewinds blow
The couples were dancing as they moved with the flow
But my heart was crying as the dance floor we crossed
We were dancing to the tune of the Waikiki Waltz

The Waikiki waltz, slow and beautiful Waikiki waltz
Tells stories of love, and another love that was false
I’ll remember that night, but it’s nobody’s fault
My heart cried that night to the Waikiki waltz

The girl I was dancing with, I met that fine day
She must have known that my heart was in yesterday
I smiled but my heart cried as the dance floor we crossed
We were dancing to the beautiful Waikiki waltz

The Waikiki waltz, slow and beautiful Waikiki waltz
Tells stories of love, and another love that was false
I’ll remember that night, but it’s nobody’s fault
My heart cried that night to the Waikiki waltz


My Heart Is Holding You (Larry W. Jones 01/03/2003) (song#853)

I could hold you gently ’cause I love you
I could tell the tradewinds of our vow
I could hold the very sunshine to make rainbows for you
My darling, my heart is holding you now

In these isles I’ll spend my whole life with you
You’re so good, I’m telling you right now
This love is made for two and my heart is with you
My darling, my heart is holding you now

I could hold you gently as I kiss you
We’ll watch the moon as it softly sighs
I could hold you every night and never would I tire of your love, dear
My darling, my heart is holding you now

In these isles I’ll spend my whole life with you
You’re so good, I’m telling you right now
This love is made for two and my heart is with you
My darling, my heart is holding you now


My World Was Hazy (01/03/2003) (song#854)

My world was hazy before my loving you
There were many ways to go but none that would do
Now the way is clear and it’s because of you
My world was hazy before my loving you

Life was unfair, just a show
No love was there, I should know
You changed my world and set me free
My world was hazy before you met me

My heart was empty before I met you
My world was hazy before you met me
I’m not just an island in some lonely sea
My world was hazy before you met me

There were many ways to go but none that would do
My world was hazy before I met you

Life was unfair, just a show
No love was there, I should know
You changed my world and set me free
My world was hazy before you met me

My heart was empty before I met you
My world was hazy before you met me
I’m not just an island in some lonely sea
My world was hazy before you met me


I’m Not Getting Any Better (Larry W. Jones 01/03/2003) (song#855)

I strolled down the beach where you left me to cry
I called out your name as the tradewinds came by
I thought of times better as I read your letter
I’m not getting any better, no I’m not getting better

I was asked by an old friend how I was doing
I said I was fine and mentioned the dreams I’m pursuing
He said it was sad, you and I were like birds of a feather
I’m not getting any better, no I’m not getting better

I don’t guess I’ll ever be the same
Our island love was once such a flame
It hurts when old friends mention your name
And it’s not getting any better

I was asked by an old friend how I was doing
I said I was fine and mentioned the dreams I’m pursuing
He said it was sad, you and I were like birds of a feather
I’m not getting any better, no I’m not getting better

I don’t guess I’ll ever be the same
Our island love was once such a flame
It hurts when old friends mention your name
And it’s not getting any better
No, I’m not getting any better


Island Angel In Disguise (Larry W. Jones 01/03/2003) (song#856)

I try my very best to live by love’s demands
I’m glad you see through all my faults
I’m glad you understand

I wish I could be perfect, but I won’t even try
But you’re the perfect angel
Right here by my side

I don’t feel any pain in this beating heart of mine
You smooth out the edges
Each and every time

You never doubt my love here in our island paradise
Your grace comes from an angel
Here on this tropic isle

Our island love has been the sweetest thing, as fresh as dew
You’re my angel in this paradise
I really care for you

I’ll never have to search for an angel in the sky
If you had wings, they’d be perfect
You’re an island angel in disguise


Today Just As Yesterday (Larry W. Jones 01/03/2003) (song#857)

I’ll never stop loving you
You give me peace of mind
Here in old Lahaina town
No better love could I find

I’ll always be wanting you
Here by the peaceful bay
You’re the dream of my life
Today just as yesterday

Your leis of island flowers, fresh as the dew
Bring songs of love here in Hawaii blue
Those Maui chimes we heard from the start
Are the music of love that’s still in our heart

I’ll never stop loving you
You give me peace of mind
Here in old Lahaina town
No better love could I find

I’ll always be wanting you
Here by the peaceful bay
You’re the dream of my life
Today just as yesterday


I’d Like To Be Your Everything (Larry W. Jones 01/04/2003) (song#858)

I’d like to be the painting of your island paradise
I’d like to be the tradewinds caressing your long hair
I’d like to be the rainbow in your blue Hawaiian skies
I might even like to be your love affair

I’d like to be the starlight in your polynesian eyes
I’d like to be strolling with you in the island sand
I’d like to be in love with you and never tell you lies
I guess I’d even like to be your island man

And if you want someone to sing you island songs
I’d like to write a few and maybe sing along
And if you ever want to marry me and settle down
I’d like to show you a little cottage in old Lahaina town

I’d like to be the strings you play on your steel guitar
We could both make music under polynesian stars
I’d like to stay forever here in paradise with you
I’d like to change your name and love you for an eternity or two

And if you want someone to sing you island songs
I’d like to write a few and maybe sing along
And if you ever want to marry me and settle down
I’d like to show you a little cottage in old Lahaina town
I’d like to be your everything


I Will Never Cry (Larry W. Jones 01/04/2003) (song#859)

I will never cry since I fell in love with you
I will never cry because your love is true
My heart will never cry out for someone new
I will never cry the way I used to do

You just keep on caring, love you keep on sharing
Even in those little things you do
You just keep on giving, a dream I’m truly living
I will never want anyone but you

I will never cry since I fell in love with you
I will never know why you love me as you do
I will forever try to keep our love fresh as new
I will never cry the way I used to do

You just keep on caring, love you keep on sharing
Even in those little things you do
You just keep on giving, a dream I’m truly living
I will never want anyone but you

I will never cry since I fell in love with you
I will never know why you love me as you do
I will forever try to keep our love fresh as new
I will never cry the way I used to do


On Mt. Otemanu (Larry W. Jones 01/04/2003) (song#860)

In the islands of the Southern seas I’m longing to be
There on the sea shining softly that polynesian moon
Where the tradewinds blow through the palm trees so free
On Mt. Otemanu, high above Bora Bora lagoon

On the isle of my childhood, there waiting for me
Those gentle people on that isle in Southern seas
I will feel the magic of polynesia there soon
On Mt. Otemanu, high above Bora Bora lagoon

There the sweet island flowers grow fragrant for me
I can hear Tahitian drums and island love tunes
Soon on the isle of my childhood I will be
On Mt. Otemanu, high above Bora Bora lagoon

The warm breeze from the ocean caresses the bay
There the fishes from the reef come out to play
I will be there regardless the sun or monsoon
On Mt. Otemanu, high above Bora Bora lagoon
On Mt. Otemanu, high above Bora Bora lagoon


For These Are My Islands (Larry W. Jones 01/04/2003) (song#861)

I chased fame and I chased fortune throughout the earth
And now I’m returning to the isles of my birth
I sought after pleasures and treasures to find
The only ones worthwhile are the ones I first left behind

For these are my islands, warm is the rain
The bays of my childhood and fields green with cane
No mem’ry is sweeter, though far I did roam
For these are my islands, my paradise home

The birds in the trees sing when I go by
The stars are all shining like diamonds at night
The moon sheds its beams of love on the bay
Here forever in paradise is where I will stay

For these are my islands, warm is the rain
The bays of my childhood and fields green with cane
No mem’ry is sweeter, though far I did roam
For these are my islands, my paradise home

Kind island people will greet me with Aloha again
I will see love on the faces of family and friends
Soon I will sing all those old island love songs
And hear my dear Mama in her Hawaiian tongue

For these are my islands, warm is the rain
The bays of my childhood and fields green with cane
No mem’ry is sweeter, though far I did roam
For these are my islands, my paradise home


Sweetest Island Rose Of All (Larry W. Jones 01/04/2003) (song#862)

My love for you, is still as true
As when I loved that little island girl
Whose polynesian eyes held no disguise
And whose long black hair the tradewinds furled

Your sweet love is a must, as when I gave my trust
To the love I saw within your heart
Darling, we will love until that day
When only death do us part

Your love is all that needs to be shown
Your eyes simply tell it all
And when the flowers are all gone, I will own
The sweetest island rose of all

My love for you, is still as true
As when I loved that little island girl
Whose polynesian eyes held no disguise
And whose long black hair the tradewinds furled

Your love is all that needs to be shown
Your eyes simply tell it all
And when the flowers are all gone, I will own
The sweetest island rose of all


I’ll Travel The Road With You (Larry W. Jones 01/04/2003) (song#863)

I’ll travel the road with you
No matter where leads the guiding star
Whether near or very far
I’ll travel the road with you

You can steer the course
Anywhere you wish to be
Whether mainland or islands in the blue
I’ll travel the road with you

If you need the moon to gaze upon
I’ll buy you the moon
I’ll buy a flower lei that’s fresh with dew
I’ll travel the road with you

I hope you know
That my heart belongs to you
Our future looks as bright as new
I’ll travel the road with you
I’ll travel the road with you


More (Larry W. Jones 01/04/2003) (song#864)

My love for you is more
Than the gentle winds that caress upon
The palm trees of some lovely island shore

My love for you is more
Than the pot of gold at rainbow’s end
With every sunset my love for you is more

I counted all the stars that twinkle in the sky
I counted all the beams of a lover’s moon
For every star and every moonbeam in paradise
I will sing love songs for you with island tunes

My love for you is more
Than the days of forever
Could I live without your love, oh never
My love for you is more, it’s forever

I counted all the stars that twinkle in the sky
I counted all the beams of a lover’s moon
For every star and every moonbeam in paradise
I will sing love songs for you with island tunes

My love for you is more
Than the days of forever
ould I live without your love, oh never
My love for you is more, it’s forever


I’ll Be Loving You (Larry W. Jones 01/04/2003) (song#865)

I’ll be loving you, you know that’s true
When I’m all alone down fishing on the bay
I’ll be loving you here in Hawaii blue
Whether in the night time or in the day

I’ll be loving you, you know that’s true
Through the monsoon rain or warm island sun
I’ll be loving you, you know you’re the only one
Whether I’m alone or in some crowded zone

I’ll be loving you and I know you know it to
You’re always on my mind and I don’t mind loving you

I’ll be loving you even when our love’s no longer new
I’ll just remember back on these sunny skies
I’ll be loving you, you know that’s true
And as the years pass by, I’ll still be loving you


All The Time (Larry W. Jones 01/04/2003) (song#866)

I don’t live in some lonely mansion
Just a little cottage by the sea
I don’t need a large expansion
I just need you here by me

I don’t live for fame and fortune
I may be down to a dollar and a dime
I don’t feel I’ve had misfortune
Cause I’ve had you here by me all the time

I don’t worry about being unfaithful
Cause that’s not a thing that’s kind
I’m not one to pull the wool
Your love fulfills me all the time

I don’t need the sunshine when it’s raining
The sun will paint the rainbows when it shines
My happiness needs no explaining
You’re my sunshine all the time

I don’t live in some lonely mansion
Just a little cottage by the sea
I don’t need a large expansion
I just need you here by me

I don’t need the sunshine when it’s raining
The sun will paint the rainbows when it shines
My happiness needs no explaining
You’re my sunshine all the time


Mansion House On The Hill (Larry W. Jones 01/04/2003) (song#867)

In a mansion house on the hill so fine
Lives the girl I love looking down on mine
But mine’s just a cottage by the sugar mill
I dream of her in the mansion house on the hill

A rich man came and wooed her away from me
Away from my little cottage by the sea
But I loved her long and I love her still
She’s living in the mansion house on the hill

I couldn’t buy her diamonds or things of gold
The only thing I could offer was my love to hold
I know she isn’t happy, love is now a bitter pill
She cries at night in the mansion house on the hill

In a mansion house on the hill so fine
Lives the girl I love looking down on mine
But mine’s just a cottage by the sugar mill
I dream of her in the mansion house on the hill

I couldn’t buy her diamonds or things of gold
The only thing I could offer was my love to hold
I know she isn’t happy, love is now a bitter pill
She cries at night in the mansion house on the hill


I’m Glad (Larry W. Jones 01/04/2003) (song#868)

I glad it’s finally over
He’s at the end of his line
He was just a cheating love rover
I’m glad your love is finally mine

I’m glad I’m now in your life, not in his shoes
Here is where I wanted to be
I can see in your eyes that you’re happy too
I’m glad you’re mine finally

I’m glad he’s leaving
I’m glad he set you free
I’m glad you’re now giving
All your sweet love to me

I’m glad I’m now in your life, not in his shoes
Here is where I wanted to be
I can see in your eyes that you’re happy too
I’m glad you’re mine finally

I’m glad he’s leaving
I’m glad he set you free
I’m glad you’re now giving
All your sweet love to me


For You I Walk The Line (Larry W. Jones 01/04/2003) (song#869)

I’ll never love another
My heart beats on island time
I love you and none other
For you I walk the line

I’ve never been the cheatin’ kind
I know love is not a game
The flame of love is heatin’ fine
Ever since I changed your name

I know our love will never part
I’ve locked the back door to my heart
I think of you right from the start
Any time that we’re apart

I’ll never love another
My heart beats on island time
I love you and none other
For you I walk the line

Don’t worry that I’ll forget you
My heart beats on island time
It’s strong and steady and it’s true
You make it sing like Maui chimes

You know my love is with you
When I’m sailing far away
And I’ll bring true love back to you
In my heart both night and day

I’ll never love another
My heart beats on island time
I love you and none other
For you I walk the line


Those Maui Chimes (01/04/2003) (song#870)

Those Maui chimes are ringing still
Another island day is through
Your love is sweeter than a sugar mill
I’m so in love with you

When the sun goes down I can tell
That you love me too
Your love is higher than a mission bell
And deeper than the ocean blue

Those Maui chimes are right on time
It’s no secret that I love you
Loving you is so sublime
I’ll tell the world that it’s true

When the sun goes down I can tell
That you love me too
Your love is higher than a mission bell
And deeper than the ocean blue

Those Maui chimes are ringing still
Another island day is through
Your love is sweeter than a sugar mill
I’m so in love with you


Only A Polynesian Moon (Larry W. Jones 01/04/2003) (song#871)

It’s only a polynesian moon
Shining upon a silver sea
I only want her to be here soon
To share her love with me

It’s only a tropic sky
With rainbows here to see
I wish a bird of paradise would fly
And bring her love to me

I just want to have her love
In this isle of paradise
The match is like hand and glove
Her kisses sure are nice

It’s a tropic polynesian world
As pretty as it can be
I’d like to give her love a whirl
On this isle out in the sea

It’s only a tropic sky
With rainbows here to see
I wish a bird of paradise would fly
And bring her love to me

It’s only a polynesian moon
Shining upon a silver sea
I only want her to be here soon
To share her love with me


She Filled My Life (Larry W. Jones 01/04/2003) (song#872)

My true love strolls here with me
On the beach at Waikiki
There’s no blues that bother me
There’s no chains upon my feet
She’s here with all her charms
She filled my life and empty arms

Both our dreams came face to face
We make memories time can’t erase
She keeps love awake when I’m gone
And I’m never blue or feel alone
Her kisses are so sweet and warm
She filled my life and empty arms

I used to feel so lonesome but that was then
Now those lonely days are gone
Island love is no longer just in the wind
Her love is like an island song
She will keep our love from harm
She filled my life and empty arms

My true love strolls here with me
On the beach at Waikiki
There’s no blues that bother me
Her love is like an island song
She will keep our love from harm
She filled my life and empty arms


You Won’t Be Lonesome (Larry W. Jones 01/05/2003) (song#873)

You know I’m the big hearted one
I’ll never bring you harm
Love isn’t blind when you’re in my arms
You won’t be lonesome from now on

Those tears you cried up in your room
Are over now and so’s the gloom
You won’t be crying all alone
You won’t be lonesome from now on

Those walls you talked to every night
Will never answer or make things right
Here in my arms the line is drawn
You won’t be lonesome from now on

You won’t be lonesome from now on, the future’s bright ahead
Here in my arms the line is drawn, no more tears to shed

Those sad memories don’t have to last
They’re just a broken looking glass
The future’s bright with love and song
You won’t be lonesome from now on


Never Let Me Forget (Larry W. Jones 01/05/2003) (song#874)

If you should ever leave me, I could not forget you
My dreams would never let me forget
Things like this tropic moon and all these stars
For your love, I would always be in debt
My dreams would never let me forget

I would always remember your love so tender all night long
Here in this paradise of splendor our love belongs
I would remember your arms so slender, holding mine
I could never forget love so divine
My dreams would never let me forget

If you should ever leave me, I could not forget you
My dreams would never let me forget
Things like this tropic moon and all these stars
For your love, I would always be in debt
My dreams would never let me forget

I would always remember your love so tender all night long
Here in this paradise of splendor our love belongs
I would remember your arms so slender, holding mine
I could never forget love so divine
My dreams would never let me forget


That Old Man (Larry W. Jones 01/05/2003) (song#875)

That yellow tropic moon sure is shining bright
That old man is watching us tonight
So I guess I’d better hold your hand
While we stroll here in the sand

Well, the moon just hid behind a cloud
I don’t have to whisper in your ear
So I can tell you I love you right out loud
And it’s time to say some wedding vows

Some folks say island love’s just romance
But why don’t we try and take a chance
Do you think soon there’ll be a day
When we can live and love here by the bay

That yellow tropic moon is out again
That old man heard all our plans
I saw him wink and Aloha say
A lot of romance is on the way

Some folks say island love’s just romance
But why don’t we try and take a chance
Do you think soon there’ll be a day
When we can live and love here by the bay

That yellow tropic moon is out again
That old man heard all our plans
I saw him wink and Aloha say
A lot of romance is on the way


You’ll See Me There (Larry W. Jones 01/05/2003) (song#876)

I hope someday you’ll change your mind
I hope someway that you will care
I know that love sometimes is blind
But look around, you’ll see me there

When all your tropic stars fade from view
When there’s no love in the tradewind air
When you need a love beyond compare
Just look around, you’ll see me there

I hope to show you love without an end
I hope to sing you songs with island flair
I hope you hear those wedding bells, and then
Just look around, you’ll see me there

I hope someday you’ll change your mind
I hope someway that you will care
I know that love sometimes is blind
But look around, you’ll see me there

I hope to show you love without an end
I hope to sing you songs with island flair
I hope you hear those wedding bells, and then
Just look around, you’ll see me there


Lani, Sweet Leilani (Larry W. Jones 01/05/2003) (song#877)

Lani, sweet Leilani, our love should never part
Lani, sweet Leilani, just place your love upon my heart
Over the silver seas so soft falls the southern moon
Over the islands on the wind flows that lover’s tune

Lani, sweet Leilani, dark is the splendor in your eyes
Lani, sweet Leilani, warm is your love in paradise
Over my heart there falls the magic of your spell
Over the islands rainbows will forever our love tell

Lani, sweet Leilani, let me stay here in your life
Lani, sweet Leilani, you will be my island wife
Lani, sweet Leilani, our love should never part
Lani, sweet Leilani, just place your love upon my heart

Over my heart there falls the magic of your spell
Over the islands rainbows will forever our love tell
Over the silver seas so soft falls the southern moon
Over the islands on the wind flows that lover’s tune
Lani, sweet Leilani, just place your love upon my heart


I Can’t Believe (Larry W. Jones 01/05/2003) (song#878)

I believe dear, that you still love me
Even though you’re seeing someone new
Yes I dream that I still own you
I can’t believe that he’s everything to you

I hold your picture, and pretend you’re here with me
You’re still my love, just send me a sign
I still believe, that you’ll be here sometime
I can’t believe you would fall for his line

I believe dear, that I haven’t lost you
Even though I’m feeling so blue
I believe we could still plan for the future
I can’t believe you believe I’m not true

I hold your picture, and pretend you’re here with me
You’re still my love, just send me a sign
I still believe, that you’ll be here sometime
I can’t believe you would fall for his line

I believe dear, that I haven’t lost you
Even though I’m feeling so blue
I believe we could still plan for the future
I can’t believe you believe I’m not true


Kalena, my Kalena (Larry W. Jones 01/05/2003) (song#879)

Kalena, my Kalena, the moon is shining
Kalena, my Kalena, for you I’m pining
Please mend this heart that’s breaking
Tradewinds are calling, love installing
Your love, so sweet and tender
A night that will engender
Dreams, for me, in island splendor

Kalena, my Kalena, the moon is shining
Kalena, my Kalena, for you I’m pining
Please mend this heart that’s breaking
Tradewinds are calling, love installing
Your love, so sweet and tender
A night that will engender
Dreams, for me, in island splendor
Kalena, my Kalena
Oh Kalena, my Kalena


I’ve Returned Forever (Larry W. Jones 01/05/2003) (song#880)

I dream tonight about that fair island in the sea
A little bit of Heaven where polynesia waits for me

Isles, my isles, where I’ll relieve my heart of pain
I’ll see again my love and taste her kiss like sugar cane
In all my dreams I dream of her and her sweet smile
And that yellow moon on the silver sea of my isle

Tradewinds whisper words of love there in my heart
On that shore we vowed our love would never part
Some day soon she’ll see those sails for miles
And she’ll know that I’ve returned forever to our isle

I dream tonight about that fair island in the sea
A little bit of Heaven where polynesia waits for me

Isles, my isles, where I’ll relieve my heart of pain
I’ll see again my love and taste her kiss like sugar cane
In all my dreams I dream of her and her sweet smile
And that yellow moon on the silver sea of my isle

Tradewinds whisper words of love there in my heart
On that shore we vowed our love would never part
Some day soon she’ll see those sails for miles
And she’ll know that I’ve returned forever to our isle


Here And Now (Larry W. Jones 01/06/2003) (song#881)

Here and now is the time
My heart has awaited
My happy heart wants to sing
As we hear wedding bells start to ring

Here and now is the time
Aloha for your love and mine
Our love will be for eternity
Lasting to the whole of infinity

Here and now is the time
I vow to you all my love
Our love will be for eternity
Lasting to the whole of infinity

And now that you and I will be one
The sunshine has just begun
Aloha our love will say
On this our wedding day
Here and now is the time, my love


In The Tropic Moonlight (Larry W. Jones 01/06/2003) (song#882)

In the tropic moonlight
By the tiki torch light
Waikiki is all right
Love songs I’ll sing to you

In that far off island
On the tropic sea sand
I want to be your man
There in Hawaii blue

There on Diamond Head mountain
Way up in Manoa valley
I know I’ll be happy
When I embrace you there

In the tropic moonlight
By the tiki torch light
Waikiki is all right
Your love will keep me there

I would be blessed, sunshine or gloom
If I could only have you there
As blessed as a king on an island in the sea
Sweetheart, your love I would share
Whether a rich man or one who is lowly
I would be rich all the time
And I would give to you my love wholly
If you would only be mine

In the tropic moonlight
By the tiki torch light
Waikiki is all right
Love songs I’ll sing to you

In that far off island
On the tropic sea sand
I want to be your man
There in Hawaii blue


Memories Of Island Bliss (Larry W. Jones 01/06/2003) (song#883)

Take one isle with sunlight kissed
Add one girl for me to kiss
One isle, some poi, so sweet, my joy
Memories of island bliss

Add in the island stars above
Stir in a dream to love
Her kiss like wine, her love sublime
Memories of island bliss

Coins in a wishing well
Let’s ring the chapel bell
Fish and poi we will savor
Paint rainbows every day
Wear your pretty flower lei
Add in some dreams for the flavor

The stars shine from up above
Moonbeams of island love
One girl, some poi, so sweet, my joy
Memories of island bliss
Memories of island bliss


Lahainaluna Rose (Larry W. Jones 01/06/2003) (song#884)

Lahainaluna Rose, don’t be sighing
Lahainaluna Rose, stop your crying
I’ll return some sunny island day
Til then in my heart your love will stay
Lahainaluna Rose, Aloha ‘oe

Lahainaluna Rose, even though I must go
Sailing the seas to just where nobody knows
I’ll return so Aloha means I love you so
Til then, I will dream of you upon the sea
Lahainaluna Rose, Aloha ‘oe

So dry those dark polynesian eyes
Kiss me once again and let me see you smile
When I sail away, it’s only for awhile
You’re the only love my heart will ever see
Lahainaluna Rose, Aloha ‘oe

Lahainaluna Rose, don’t be sighing
Lahainaluna Rose, stop your crying
I’ll return some sunny island day
Til then in my heart your love will stay
Lahainaluna Rose, Aloha ‘oe


Moonlight Rose (Larry W. Jones 01/06/2003) (song#885)

Moonlight rose, on you soft moonlight glows
Moonlight rose, island flower in repose
Fragrant is your blossom in the air
Blessed are the islands with you there
Moonlight rose

Moonlight rose, flower of love in islands grows
Moonlight rose, dressed in beauty of heaven’s clothes
Soft are your petals as when lovers kiss
Fresh with the dew from night’s balmy mist
Moonlight rose

The moonlight rose is a flower divine, of Heaven’s design
And you my love, are the moonlight rose of mine

Moonlight rose, moonbeams will disclose
Words of love as the tradewind blows
The month of June will bring Heaven’s delight
As the moon shines upon you its Heavenly light
And I will hold my love tonight, my moonlight rose


Old Love Faxes (Larry W. Jones 01/06/2003) (song#886)

I deleted your lovely picture off my computer
I burned all your old love faxes too
The only thing I can’t delete from my mem’ry
Are the facts that say I still love you

I deleted all the emails that you sent me
I erased the trail of cookies leading to you
The only thing I can’t erase from my heart, dear
Is the page that says you were untrue

I tried to save our house of love to the letter
But with a mouse click you found someone better
The only thing I can’t save is our future
And the only future I had was you

I thought you and I were so happy
But you’ve downloaded such misery
I’ll carry a heavy load in my heart, dear
The only thing I can’t restart is your love for me

I deleted your lovely picture off my computer
I burned all your old love faxes too
The only thing I can’t delete from my mem’ry
Are the facts that say I still love you

I tried to save our house of love to the letter
But with a mouse click you found someone better
The only thing I can’t save is our future
And the only future I had was you


Mahinalani, Heavenly Moon (Larry W. Jones 01/07/2003) (song#887)

Here I am again on memory lane
I’ve been here a thousand times before
Strolling in this warm island sand again
Dreaming on this same island shore

I can always see my Mahinalani
In island dress as she was back then
Waiting for me at Waikiki
I kiss her again as I pretend

Dark polynesian eyes
Lips sweet as wine
That was my Mahinalani

Laughing smile
Flower of the isle
She was my Mahinalani

Many times in the moonlight we’d go strolling
Mahinalani, heavenly moon, beams of love
I still feel her in my arms at the twilight’s tolling
Mahinalani, you’re the one I’m still dreaming of


My Loneliness (Larry W. Jones 01/07/2003) (song#888)

Lonely islands in the blue
Lonely oceans cry for you
My lonely eyes still look for you
My loneliness

I remember days of bliss
Your lovely face I surely miss
How did things turn out like this
My loneliness

A million stars in heaven gleams
Day and night I dream of you, it seems
Until you’re in my arms again
My loneliness

In paradise of oceans blue
Isles are waiting there for you
Bring back your love and please undo
My loneliness

A million stars in heaven gleams
Day and night I dream of you, it seems
Until you’re in my arms again
My loneliness

In paradise of oceans blue
Isles are waiting there for you
Bring back your love and please undo
My loneliness


For Happiness (Larry W. Jones 01/07/2003) (song#889)

There are things you’ll never know
Like how much I love you so
The timing wasn’t good, I guess
For happiness

In my heart you’ll always be
The dream I hoped was you and me
My arms your love cannot possess
For happiness

I can hear your laughter
But I can’t follow after
Dreams are what I must suppress
For happiness

Sometimes I wonder why
A dream will wander by
When all a man can do is cry
For happiness

There are things you’ll never know
Like how much I love you so
The timing wasn’t good, I guess
For happiness

Sometimes I wonder why
A dream will wander by
When all a man can do is cry
For happiness


Ramblin’ Chart Sailor (Larry W. Jones 01/07/2003) (song#890)

They call me a sailor man, with a ramblin’ chart in my hand
And I’ve seen the things that slip through a heart like island sand
They call me a sailor man, with a ramblin’ chart in my hand
But my heart is wiser, my best advisor, since my sailin’ days began

I know about life and love, the good and the bad
I’ve been face to face with truth, sometimes it can make you sad
The oceans will make you fear, a broken heart can bring a tear
They call me a sailor man, with a ramblin’ chart by which I steer

I’ve sailed in the moonlight glitter, a lost love can make you bitter
But my heart is wiser, my best advisor, and I’m not a quitter
My heart is now at ease, and I sail the charts as I please
My ramblin’ heart’s at home, and my home is the seven seas

I’ve been to islands where love was true, days filled with song
I’ve seen love that’s been undone, hearts that once were strong
I’ve heard laughing, I’ve seen crying, through islands everywhere I roam
But my ramblin’ heart’s at home, and the seven seas are my home

They call me a sailor man, with a ramblin’ chart in my hand
And I’ve seen the things that slip through a heart like island sand
They call me a sailor man, with a ramblin’ chart in my hand
But my heart is wiser, my best advisor, since my sailin’ days began

I’ve sailed in the moonlight glitter, a lost love can make you bitter
But my heart is wiser, my best advisor, and I’m not a quitter
My heart is now at ease, and I sail the charts as I please
My ramblin’ heart’s at home, and my home is the seven seas


Just Love Me (Larry W. Jones 01/07/2003) (song#891)

We can go where there’s no cold or snow
Islands in the ocean blue
Just as long as you love me as I love you
We can go where the tradewinds blow
Dreams will come true in Hawaii blue
Just love me as I love you

My heart would grieve me if you didn’t need me
So let me walk there by your side
Through stormy weather, if we’re together
Our love could stand the flooding tide

Go where there’s no cold or snow
Islands in the ocean blue
Just love me as I love you

My heart would grieve me if you didn’t need me
So let me walk there by your side
Through stormy weather, if we’re together
Our love could stand the flooding tide

Go where there’s no cold or snow
Islands in the ocean blue
Just love me as I love you


I Need You More (Larry W. Jones 01/07/2003) (song#892)

The island days seem so very long
The flaming sun is even setting wrong
The isles are green while I am blue
I’m still in love despite these tears
And I pray that you’ll be here
To help me work through these lonely blues

The tropic moon is out tonight
But it’s blue and that’s not right
Oh, I need you in my arms to hold
To turn my moon and love to gold
I need you more than you’ll ever know

Every day when you’re not here
Tradewinds never whisper love in my ear
But I’ll spend island days so very long
With the setting sun and moon all wrong
Waiting for your love to come back home
I need you more than you’ll ever know

The tropic moon is out tonight
But it’s blue and that’s not right
Oh, I need you in my arms to hold
To turn my moon and love to gold
I need you more than you’ll ever know

Every day when you’re not here
Tradewinds never whisper love in my ear
But I’ll spend island days so very long
With the setting sun and moon all wrong
Waiting for your love to come back home
I need you more than you’ll ever know


Nothing More (Larry W. Jones 01/09/2003) (song#893)

It was only a luau dance, nothing more
But it was a dream for me, on the shore
It was like a polynesian ball, luau and all
Because you danced with me

It was only a stroll on the beach, nothing more
But it was a dream for me, made my heart soar
It was like a bowling ball, strike, pins and all
My heart fell at your feet

When I held your hand, my love
I didn’t stand a chance
You were the one I’d been dreaming of
Now I understood romance

It was only a tropic wedding in June, nothing more
But it was a dream for me
It was like a topic from a fairy tale, a king and queen
Because you said Aloha, yes I do to me

It was only a tropic wedding in June, nothing more
But it was a dream for me
It was like a topic from a fairy tale, a king and queen
Because you said Aloha, yes I do to me


A Yellow Island Rose (Larry W. Jones 01/09/2003) (song#894)

A yellow island rose he placed in her hair
But she chose an orchid when someone else was there
A yellow island rose she cast away
Along with his heart down by the bay

A yellow island rose lay lonely on the sand
A lonely island girl strolled by without an island man
A yellow island rose she found lying there
A lonely island girl placed a yellow rose in her hair

A lonely island girl strolled on down the sand
A brokenhearted island boy she met unplanned
Two lonely hearts are one, and so it goes
United by island love and a yellow island rose

A lonely island girl strolled on down the sand
A brokenhearted island boy she met unplanned
Two lonely hearts are one, and so it goes
United by island love and a yellow island rose


Once Upon An Island (Larry W. Jones 01/09/2003) (song#895)

Once upon an island life was peaceful
There was no reason to complain
Once upon an island you were mine
But now your heart my love does not contain

I thought islands always had sunny weather
But now I feel the cold inside your heart
Oh, if I could only change the weather
And pretend you’re here as at the start

I know that when it rains on the island
There will come the rainbow soon
But now I just see pain instead of dreamland
My sunshine love has turned to gloom

Well maybe if those dark cloud shadows
Keep that tropic moon out of view
That old man won’t have to remind me
Of once upon an island dream with you

Well maybe if those dark cloud shadows
Keep that tropic moon out of view
That old man won’t have to remind me
Of once upon an island dream with you


Some Island Tuberoses (Larry W. Jones 01/10/2003) (song#896)

Wrap up some island tuberoses
Tie them with the strings of my heart
Send them to the girl with the sweetest poses
And tell her it’s time for romance to start

She plays my heart strings daily
With kisses sweet as an island tuberose
My heart sings as happy as a ukulele
And she’ll say yes when I propose

I know she’ll be gald to get them
So please don’t go and forget them
There’s something we’ve been planning well
A wedding dress, a ring and a wedding bell

Wrap up some island tuberoses
Tie them with the strings of my heart
Send them to the girl with the sweetest poses
And tell her it’s time for romance to start

She plays my heart strings daily
With kisses sweet as an island tuberose
My heart sings as happy as a ukulele
And she’ll say yes when I propose


Girl Who Got Away (Larry W. Jones 01/10/2003) (song#897)

I’m going out again without a doubt, as I do
And I’m not without someone new
People look again today, and as they say
He’s that guy with someone new down by the bay

They think I’m so happy but I’m really blue
They don’t know where my heart is today
I’m here by the bay and I have someone new
But I’m in love with that island girl who got away

That island girl got away just in time it seems
To take away my heart along with all my dreams

So if someone says Aloha while I’m strolling in the sand
And if I just go on by walking by the bay
It’s not that I’m being rude you understand
It’s just that my mind is on that island girl who got away


Eatin’ Fish And Poi (Larry W. Jones 01/10/2003) (song#898)

Come to the luau feast with me tonight
They’ve got dancin’ and romancin’ that’s outta sight
But what will really bring you joy is
Eatin’ fish and poi

It will be so romantic when the moon is full
We can help with the Hukilau fishing pull
But what will really help this island boy is
Eatin’ fish and poi

So come to the luau feast and I will whisper in your ear
Words of love I know you will enjoy
And then we’ll do something special dear
Eatin’ fish and poi

It will be so romantic when the moon is full
We can help with the Hukilau fishing pull
But what will really help this island boy is
Eatin’ fish and poi

So come to the luau feast and I will whisper in your ear
Words of love I know you will enjoy
And then we’ll do something special dear
Eatin’ fish and poi
And then we’ll do something special dear
Eatin’ fish and poi


If You’ll Forgive (Larry W. Jones 01/10/2003) (song#899)

If you’ll forgive me maybe you won’t forget me
I still want to be the one for you
If you’ll forgive me maybe you won’t forget me
Please don’t look around for someone new

Dear, I know your love was always true
I’m sorry that your dreams turned out so blue
If I could just hold you for but one more day
You could see I’m sorry that I your love betrayed

Please don’t leave me now, it’s not too late
Let me repair this broken dream and set love straight

Please don’t walk away from me now I pray
Forever with you now my heart will stay
You and I can weather out the storm
And love can be as islands in the sun are warm

Please don’t leave me now, it’s not too late
Let me repair this broken dream and set love straight

Please don’t walk away from me now I pray
Forever with you now my heart will stay
You and I can weather out the storm
And love can be as islands in the sun are warm


Nine Hundred (01/10/2003) (#900)

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

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


Oh Malina (Larry W. Jones 01/10/2003) (song#901)

Malina, don’t you hear those Maui chimes
Malina, they’re sounding right on time
As I hold you and kiss you
I thank the stars that you are mine
And I’ve dreamed of times like this too
As I smell the perfume of an island rose divine

Malina, today is the day you will be with me
Malina, we will live and love on this island in the sea
Oh how bitter the early dawn
To awake and know that you are gone
Oh Malina, why has your love withdrawn

Malina, today is the day you will be with me
Malina, we will live and love on this island in the sea
Oh how bitter the early dawn
To awake and know that you are gone
Oh Malina, why has your love withdrawn


A New Flame (Larry W. Jones 01/10/2003) (song#902)

I’m glad I never swore that I’d never love again
Otherwise I would still be brokenhearted
I’m glad I didn’t close the back door to my heart
On that moonlit night when you departed

I remember watching as you strolled away
And I thought that I would never find
Words that would sound just right that day
To repair the break in this heart of mine

Wherever my steps may wander
Or to where my steps might drift along
I’ve already had time to ponder
As to why and where our flame had gone

Now I’ve found a new flame and embers
And love words I thought I would never find
Her love is warmer than the one I remember
That broke this heart of mine

Now I’ve found a new flame and embers
And love words I thought I would never find
Her love is warmer than the one I remember
That broke this heart of mine


This Hawaiian Cowboy (Larry W. Jones 01/10/2003) (song#903)

My heart’s in the big island, under those clear blue skies
She was a lovely wahini, with dark polynesian eyes
My heart’s in the big island, held there with cowboy ties
She was a lovely wahini, whom my heart will forever prize

Her folks were the rich ranchers, and I was just a cowboy hand
I herded all their cattle over the island and through the sand
But I was just a cowboy with no future to impart
So I couldn’t tell her of the love I had within my heart

She was a lovely wahini, but she never loved me and never knew
That the day she married another was the day she broke my heart in two
Now I guess she won’t miss me, so I’ll just move along
This Hawaiian cowboy who loved her now rides the range alone

My heart’s in the big island, under those clear blue skies
She was a lovely wahini, with dark polynesian eyes
But I was just a cowboy with no future to impart
So I couldn’t tell her of the love I had within my heart

She was a lovely wahini, but she never loved me and never knew
That the day she married another was the day she broke my heart in two
Now I guess she won’t miss me, so I’ll just move along
This Hawaiian cowboy who loved her now rides the range alone


A Roving Sailor (Larry W. Jones 01/10/2003) (song#904)

I was a roving sailor
I sailed the world around
When I needed some island rum
I laid my money down

I’ve sailed to old Lahaina town
Sailed to Cape Town too
And when I sailed back to Hawaii
I settled down in skies of blue

Well I was back in old Maui
From many a day at sea
When I found a little island girl
Who fell in love with me

She took me to her cottage
She said she had a plan
She whispered words to her mother dear
I love this sailor man

She took me shopping in the town
And I laid my money down
She said I could be her island king
So I bought her a wedding ring

I was a roving sailor
I sailed around the world
But when I wanted to settle down
I married me an island girl
In old Lahaina town


Island Rose Perfume (Larry W. Jones 01/10/2003) (song#905)

Where tradewind breezes blew
That special island day
A song of love I knew
I sang this way

Evening skies are red, my love
Hawaii is blue
You are as sweet, my love
As island rose perfume

God created islands too
And evening skies aflame
A song of love I knew
For you I sang

Evening skies are red, my love
Hawaii is blue
You are as sweet, my love
As island rose perfume

You set my heart awhirl
Your love’s as fresh as dew
Someday I’ll bring an island pearl
And my love so true

Evening skies are red, my love
Hawaii is blue
You are as sweet, my love
As island rose perfume

I will never go away
And you will never be blue
A song of love I know
I’ll sing to you

Evening skies are red, my love
Hawaii is blue
You are as sweet, my love
As island rose perfume


Other Island Sand (Larry W. Jones 01/11/2003) (song#906)

You ask why I’m a sailor
Why do I the oceans roam
My heart is that of a whaler
On another island home

I feel the sand, other island sand in my shoes

Some girls have called me darling
But I always made them cry
Cause I hear the sea a-calling
And I must say goodbye

I feel the sand, other island sand in my shoes
I’m just a whaler, sailing oceans blue
I would buy a wedding ring
But I’ve got sand, other island sand in my shoes

I met an island girl the other day
She pleaded with me not to go away
She kissed me and begged me stay
And asked if I would marry her someday

I said I’ve got sand, other island sand in my shoes
I’m just a whaler, sailing oceans blue
I would buy a wedding ring
But I’ve got sand, other island sand in my shoes


Standing By On Island Time (Larry W. Jones 01/11/2003) (song#907)

I’m standing by on island time, standing by your heart
I’m standing by on island time, will you ever do your part
I’m standing in the shadows, the one you never kissed
I’m thinking about leaving, I doubt if I’ll be missed
Ill be sailing somewhere, off into the blue
To an island somewhere, where you’re not standing too

Far horizons there are calling me
To an island in the sea
I’ll find an island girl where I won’t be…

Standing by on island time, standing by your heart
Standing by on island time, waiting for you to do your part
Standing in the shadows, the one you never kissed
I won’t be thinking of leaving, my love there won’t be missed
Ill be sailing somewhere, off into the blue
To an island somewhere, where you’re not standing too


Oh Oceans Blue (Larry W. Jones 01/11/2003) (song#908)

Yesterday I saw a ship come a-docking
From over the oceans blue
I hoped that he would come a-knocking
He broke my heart in two

On the evening tide he left me
To sail the oceans grand
But when that ship came from the sea
My dreams faded into island sand

Oh oceans blue, please come through
Bring my lover from the sea
Fill his sails with love from my heart
And guide him safely back to me

The evening tide reminds me
Of my dreams that came undone
He sailed away far across the sea
At the setting of the sun

He promised when he left me
That he’d return from distant shores
He said his heart and dreams would be
Here with me because he loves me so

Oh oceans blue, please come through
Bring my lover from the sea
Fill his sails with love from my heart
And guide him safely back to me


Red Rose Scarlet Lei (Larry W. Jones 01/11/2003) (song#909)

The sun set scarlet on the bay
Dark was her polynesian eyes so fair
Scarlet was the fragrant flower lei
That looked so lovely in her hair

The day that I first met her
She was standing on the shore
There was no way to forget her
Scarlet was the flower that she wore

Scarlet was the color of the sun setting on the bay
Scarlet was the flower in her hair, red rose scarlet lei

She looked just like an island dream
Need I say any more
I had found my true love, so it seemed
Scarlet was the flower that she wore

Then one day I missed her
I couldn’t find her on the shore
My dreams have gone along with her
And the scarlet flower that she wore

Scarlet was the color of the sun setting on the bay
Scarlet was the flower in her hair, red rose scarlet lei

Then one day I missed her
I couldn’t find her on the shore
My dreams have gone along with her
And the scarlet flower that she wore
Scarlet was the flower in her hair
Red rose scarlet lei


Island Steel Guitar Serenade (Larry W. Jones 01/11/2003) (song#910)

One night in balmy old Hawaii
On Waikiki’s golden strand
I fell in love as island steel guitars
Played like heart strings on the sand

Island steel guitars were playing a lover’s song
And both our hearts sang along as they played
We danced until our new love grew strong
To that island steel guitar serenade

Island steel guitar serenade
Play that love song again
The moonlight is shining on the bay
This is where our love began
To that island steel guitar serenade

Island steel guitars played as I held her close
We danced on and on
In my arms she was sweet as an island rose
As island steel guitars played our love song

Island steel guitars were playing a lover’s song
And both our hearts sang along as they played
We danced until our new love grew strong
To that island steel guitar serenade
We danced until our new love grew strong
To that island steel guitar serenade


Sweet Island Sue (Larry W. Jones 01/11/2003) (song#911)

Every polynesian star in the skies above
Knows the one I’m dreaming of
She’s my girl in Hawaii blue
She’s my sweet, sweet island Sue

And that yellow moon lighting up the night
Shines on the one who’s my delight
She’s my island love so true
She’s my sweet, sweet island Sue

Sweet island Sue
You’re the one I love so true
You’re my girl in Hawaii blue
You’re my sweet, sweet island Sue

Along came an island dream
Must have been love from moonbeams
We fell in love right from the start
Sweet island Sue and I will never part

Now she’s here in my heart
I keep her love here all the time
She’s an island work of art
Sweet island Sue is mine all mine

Sweet island Sue
You’re the one I love so true
You’re my girl in Hawaii blue
You’re my sweet, sweet island Sue
You’re the one I love so true
You’re my sweet, sweet island Sue


I Forgot (Larry W. Jones 01/11/2003) (song#912)

I can’t forget to remember the adventure of kissing you
I forgot to stop thinking of the gladness we knew
Who do you remember when you dream at night
What islands do you long for when stars shine so bright

Some day I’ll forget to remember you, some day I will
Maybe I’ll even remember to find another love that’s real

I forgot to forget the time when you broke my heart
I forgot to forget our happy island days at the start
So don’t forget to listen, and then you will know
I forgot to forget that I still love you so

Some day I’ll forget to remember you, some day I will
Maybe I’ll even remember to find another love that’s real

I forgot to forget the time when you broke my heart
I forgot to forget our happy island days at the start
So don’t forget to listen, and then you will know
I forgot to forget that I still love you so


Laura From Bora Bora (Larry W. Jones 01/11/2003) (song#913)

Oh Bora Bora, island of love and romance
Oh Bora Bora, best of Polynesia and France

Whenever you go, see clear waters flow
From Mt. Otemanu to the beautiful sea
There you’ll see too, cares are so few
You’ll find that love and Polynesia agree

Island girls are plenty and pretty to see
You may fall in love with any
And there’s many to romance by the sea
But there’s one who belongs to only me

She’s my sweet Laura from Bora Bora
She’s my darling from Polynesian skies
She’s my sweet Laura from Bora Bora
I’m in paradise when I look into her eyes

Like tradewinds she whispered I love you
She’s Polynesian and I love her too
To Bora Bora I’ll go back some day
There with my Laura in Bora Bora I’ll stay

She’s my sweet Laura from Bora Bora
She’s my darling from Polynesian skies
She’s my sweet Laura from Bora Bora
I’m in paradise when I look into her eyes

Like tradewinds she whispered I love you
She’s Polynesian and I love her too
To Bora Bora I’ll go back some day
There with my Laura in Bora Bora I’ll stay


Batten Down My Heart (Larry W. Jones 01/11/2003) (song#914)

Those words of Aloha this morning
Sounded like goodbye before the storm
I can see the storm flags’ warning
That you’re drifting toward other arms

A typhoon has advance clouds informing
So I’m glad I saw that love had a warning
I’ll use the lull to batten down my heart
And prepare my island dreams for the storm

There’s are storm clouds forming above
The outgoing tide is drifting love apart
You’ll be in the arms of another new love
So I’ll use the lull to batten down my heart

I can’t hold you or keep your heart around
With words of Aloha when love is so down
I’ll just ride out the storm and oncoming waves
And batten down my heart and try to be brave
I’ll just ride out the storm and oncoming waves
And batten down my heart and try to be brave


Typhoon (Larry W. Jones 01/11/2003) (song#915)

There’s a typhoon storm a-blowin’ on
And I’m a-sailin’ my old ship toward home
This old ship’s a-leakin’ grand
And these waves she might not stand

Listen to those typhoon winds a-sighin’
If I don’t get home I’ll be a-dyin’
But it’s only one day’s sail to island sand
It’s only one day’s sail to island sand

That sweet island girl is on my mind
On the isle it’s almost suppertime
I know she’s got fish and poi in the pan
I hear those typhoon winds as they blow
This old ship’s a rollin’ as she goes
But it’s only half a day to island sand
It’s only half a day to island sand

Those winds are a-blowin’ from abeam
I hear the wind through the rigging scream
But I’m a-sailin’ fast as I can
Well old salty dog, you’re in a typhoon storm
Away from islands and that island girl so warm
But it’s only a nautical mile to island sand
It’s only a nautical mile to island sand

Aye boys, mind those sails you salty cuss
Or this typhoon storm will be the end of us
I know you’re all tired but I’m a sailor man
Ye salty mates, give it all the best you can
We don’t have time to pray or take a rest
We’ve got to get through that reef to island sand
Got to get through that reef to island sand

Well that night the typhoon passed and it was gone
They found the broken ship on the reef at dawn
They almost made it but the reef they couldn’t span
The captain they found a-dyin’ on the sand that day
Clutched to his breast was an island flower lei
It was for that girl he loved on the island sand
For that girl he loved on the island sand

Listen to those typhoon winds a-sighin’
If I don’t get home I’ll be a-dyin’
But it’s only one day’s sail to island sand
It’s only one day’s sail to island sand


Another Full Moon (Larry W. Jones 01/11/2003) (song#916)

Here’s another full moon over the island
The same empty love here in my heart
She’s gone to the mainland
I remember when we had to part

She said that when came the full moon
She would be sailing back to me
But that full moon was way back last June
And my heart’s still empty you see

Another full moon over the island
The same empty love here in my heart
If she hadn’t gone to the mainland
We would not have had to part

She said that she would call me
I guess she just hasn’t found the time
So I’ll just wait and my heart deceive
That someday she’ll be mine

Here’s another full moon over the island
The same empty love here in my heart


Little Island Rendevous (larry W. Jones 01/11/2003) (song#917)

Honey, why don’t me and you
Do what we used to do
I want to reminisce with you
In our little island rendevous

We’ll go where island guitars play
In that same Waikiki beach cafe
We might even dance ’til dawn
To those same favorite island songs

We’ll celebrate with island wine
And watch the stars in skies divine
I want to kiss your lips so fine
Just like I did back in our prime

Listen to the tradewinds whisper low
Just before it’s time to go
My island love, I love you true
In our little island rendevous

We’ll celebrate with island wine
And watch the stars in skies divine
I want to kiss your lips so fine
Just like I did back in our prime

Listen to the tradewinds whisper low
Just before it’s time to go
My island love, I love you true
In our little island rendevous


My Heart To Hold (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2003) (song#918)

There’s not much water in a desert
There’s not much sand out in the sea
You may not be an angel
But you’re as sweet as you can be

You turned love’s dark night into day
You made all my dreams come true
You may not be from heaven
But I’m in heaven loving you

There’s no island sand above us
There’s no stars down here below
There’s no islands in the desert
But there’s love right here, I know

We don’t know about tomorrow
We can’t renew things that are old
If I lost your love, there would be sorrow
So today I’ll give to you my heart to hold

There’s no island sand above us
There’s no stars down here below
There’s no islands in the desert
But there’s love right here, I know

We don’t know about tomorrow
We can’t renew things that are old
If I lost your love, there would be sorrow
So today I’ll give to you my heart to hold


Love To Say Aloha (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2003) (song#919)

I just love to say Aloha
When I hold you close to me
That little word says what you are
It just means love you see

When I heard you say Aloha
Here in Hawaii blue
I knew that I would be your fella
Because Aloha came from you

I just love to live Aloha
Here in Hawaii blue
I just love to be your fella
In Hawaii where dreams come true

I just love to say Aloha
When I hold you close to me
That little word says what you are
It just means love you see

I just love to live Aloha
Here in Hawaii blue
I just love to be your fella
In Hawaii where dreams come true


Here’s An Island Man (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2003) (song#920)

Here’s an island man who loves you
I’ll kiss away your cares
Here’s an island man who needs you
I’ve got love to share

Here’s an island man who’s lonely
I’ve been on my own
Here’s an island man for you only
I don’t like being alone

Here’s an island man who cries for you
I know it’s true
Here’s an island man who wouldn’t lie
I would love you ’til I die

Here’s an island man who begs of you
Please make my dreams come true
Here’s an island man in wedding shoes
Please say to me, I do

Here’s an island man who loves you
I’ll kiss away your cares
Here’s an island man who needs you
I’ve got love to share

Here’s an island man who begs of you
Please make my dreams come true
Here’s an island man in wedding shoes
Please say to me, I do


That Angel Smile (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2003) (song#221)

I see that angel smile again
The one I love to see
Every time you stroll my way
And you go out with me

It’s that same fresh angel smile
That caused my heart to fall
My heart just wants to race a mile
And take you to that wedding hall

You know I’m the one who cares
About the little things you do
So when we’re strolling now, beware
Because I’ll steal your heart from you

I hope there’ll always be a day
Like this nice day, and then
You will get to hear me say
I see that anget smile again

You know I’m the one who cares
About the little things you do
So when we’re strolling now, beware
Because I’ll steal your heart from you

I hope there’ll always be a day
Like this nice day, and then
You will get to hear me say
I see that anget smile again


Don’t Put Out The Fire (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2003) (song#922)

Don’t ever put out the fire
When the sun is sinking low
You might not see her there
Keep love’s embers all aglow

Don’t put out the fire love brings
Those sweetest days you’ve known
Hearts are young in the spring
Island love is yours alone

Don’t let love turn to ashes
Even if springtime was long ago
The spark of love forever flashes
If you keep love’s mem’ries aglow

Don’t ever put out the fire
When the sun is sinking low
You might not see her there
Keep love’s embers all aglow

Don’t let love turn to ashes
Even if springtime was long ago
The spark of love forever flashes
If you keep love’s mem’ries aglow


Love Forever Ageless (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2003) (song#923)

The tropic stars in the sky will always shine
The sand on the shore will never be cold
You’re the rose of the island and you’re mine
You turned my dreams of blue back to gold

The moon and the sun chased away the darkness
You appeared like an angel divine
Sweetheart, my love will be forever ageless
Until the farthest end of island time

The tropic stars in the sky will always shine
The sand on the shore will never be cold
You’re the rose of the island and you’re mine
You turned my dreams of blue back to gold

The moon and the sun chased away the darkness
You appeared like an angel divine
Sweetheart, my love will be forever ageless
Until the farthest end of island time


Crying Cottage Walls (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2003) (song#924)

I dread the twilight at the end of the day
While the island sleeps my thoughts drift away
I know I’ll hear the things the voices say
From the shadows of these crying cottage walls

These crying cottage walls just brings me tears
And those dreams of you I recall
My heart’s pain is still the same as yesteryears
When you first left these crying cottage walls

I hear them crying out your name
In my heart that spark of love is still a flame
I hear from the darkness all the same love calls
From the shadows of these crying cottage walls

These crying cottage walls just brings me tears
And those dreams of you I recall
My heart’s pain is still the same as yesteryears
When you first left these crying cottage walls


Sunsets And Flowers (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2003) (song#925)

When I touch the petal of an island rose
When I breath the scent of it’s perfume
I know some things nobody knows
My love for you is in full bloom

The mokihana blossom of Kauai
Makes a lei I know was meant for you
The flowers on the isles of Hawaii
Reminds me of dreams that have come true

The evening sun in painted glory
Looks like the fire of love I have for you
It’s the same love of the islands story
And one chapter in it has come true

Every golden sunset and island flower
Reminds me of a painting or two
Now at last has come the hour
To propose a marriage vow to you

Every golden sunset and island flower
Reminds me of a painting or two
Now at last has come the hour
To propose a marriage vow to you


Island Sun And Roses Too (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2003) (song#926)

You brought me island sun and roses
You brought me skies of blue
You brought me island rainbows
Your love’s as fresh as morning dew

I’ve found an island angel
Who brought me springtime all year through
You fill my life with gladness
I have no more sadness
Since you brought me island sun and roses too

I find the sweet love that you give me
Like springtime all year through
Is part of island paradise in the sea
Since you brought me island sun and roses too

You brought me island sun and roses
You brought me skies of blue
You brought me island rainbows
Your love’s as fresh as morning dew

I find the sweet love that you give me
Like springtime all year through
Is part of island paradise in the sea
Since you brought me island sun and roses too


Top Of The World Dance (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2003) (song#927)

All of the stars played island guitars
The man in the moon spoke of love
They played a song for me, an island melody
And we danced under the heavens above

I made but one wish, then your lips I kissed
An angel’s face with heaven’s grace and island charm
It was like make believe but I believe it was real
I knew that when dancing with you, my heart you would steal

Dancing with my island angel
In paradise with my island girl
That magic moment I saw you
My heart danced to the top of the world

All of the stars played island guitars
The man in the moon spoke of love
They played a song for me, an island melody
And we danced under the heavens above

Dancing with my island angel
In paradise with my island girl
That magic moment I saw you
My heart danced to the top of the world


Your Island Man (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2003) (song#928)

Your island man ’til stars no longer shine
Your island man ’til island guitars no longer play
Your island man ’til songs have no rhyme
Your love is to me an island flower bouquet

I’ll be your island man until the twelfth of never
Here on this polynesian island shore sand
I love you now and I will forever
Be your island man

Your island man ’til stars no longer shine
Your island man ’til island guitars no longer play
Your island man ’til songs have no rhyme
Your love is to me an island flower bouquet

I’ll be your island man until the twelfth of never
Here on this polynesian island shore sand
I love you now and I will forever
Be your island man


Kalaupapa Sunset Dream (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2003) (song#929)

In Kalaupapa the golden sun is setting
The evening tidal flow here is now abating
And on the balmy tradewinds of Kalaupapa
Songs of island love are in this night awaiting

Hear the steel guitar music for lovers’ wooing
Feel enchantment of its spell while dancing
See the heavenly moon and stars for viewing
Fulfill dreams of love and island sweet romancing

(instrumental)

Peaceful sighs there Kalaupapa sunsets render
Kalaupapa is not just an isle in the stream
You’re here in my arms and your soft lips engender
Scenes of love, yours and mine, in Kalaupapa dreams

So let me hold you close to me, my island love
For we both feel the tradewind breezes soft and new
As the sun is setting over Kalaupapa
Both it and you are my dreams in Hawaii blue

An Island Woman (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2003) (song#930)

She’s an island woman who has seen and done it all
An island woman knows when to bend or stand up tall
She knows how to love and how to comfort cries
She’s all things good and she’s an island angel in disguise

She’s the colors of the rainbow, the wind under wings
She’s the voice of the tradewinds with love when it sings
An island woman is God’s creation so it’s no surprise
She’s all things good and she’s an island angel in disguise

She can be as strong as koa wood or soft as an island rose
She’s the beauty of the islands when they’re in sweet repose
Every thing I ever wanted I see in her Polynesian eyes
She’s all things good and she’s an island angel in disguise

She’s the colors of the rainbow, the wind under wings
She’s the voice of the tradewinds with love when it sings
An island woman is God’s creation so it’s no surprise
She’s all things good and she’s an island angel in disguise

She can be as strong as koa wood or soft as an island rose
She’s the beauty of the islands when they’re in sweet repose
Every thing I ever wanted I see in her Polynesian eyes
She’s all things good and she’s an island angel in disguise


Like The Ebb Tide Lee (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2003) (song#931)

The tide fills up the bay
And rushes toward the isle
It rolls up to the shore
And gently kisses island sand
The tide then empties from the bay
And returns to the sea
And the bay is very peaceful
In the quiet ebb tide lee

So it is that you fill up my life
Like the rush of an incoming tide
When you’re away I’m like the bay
I’m so empty without you by my side

When I see your heavenly grace
And feel the warmth of your embrace
It’s then that my heart sings
With love played on the strings

Like the tidal flow when it fills
The bay with waters strong until
The tide recedes back to the sea
Love’s at peace like the ebb tide lee

Like the tidal flow when it fills
The bay with waters strong until
The tide recedes back to the sea
Love’s at peace like the ebb tide lee


I’d Rather Be (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2003) (song#932)

I’d rather be a bird of paradise than an eagle
Oh you know I would
Now if I only could
Oh you know I would

I’d rather be a hound dog for your love than a beagle
Oh you know I would
Now if I only could
Oh you know I would

To paradise I’d rather sail away
Where birds of paradise fly today
A man and his dreams grow older come what may
It’s sad but that’s the way it plays

I’d rather be a castle made of sand with class
Than an empty house that’s made of glass
I’d rather be a ukulele than a clanging piece of brass
I’d rather have your love than a lonely boarding pass

I’d rather be an island man living on island sand
Oh you know I would
Now if I only could
Oh you know I would

To paradise I’d rather sail away
Where birds of paradise fly today
A man and his dreams grow older come what may
It’s sad but that’s the way it plays
A man and his dreams grow older come what may
It’s sad but that’s the way it plays


El Salty Dog Diablo (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2003) (song#933)

Let me tell you a salty dog story
About a salty dog sailor long ago
One day he sailed into old Maui
They called him el salty dog diablo

He came on a midnight tide
With a gun and a cutlass by his side
El salty dog diablo was a hunted man
He was sailin’ outside the law again

A fortune in gold he had made
He was livin’ high on the isle
It all came from the raids he made
But now his life wasn’t even worthwhile

He had killed again with his gun
And now he was on the run
El salty dog diablo was moving fast
He knew each day might be his last

They caught him in old Maui by the bay
Even though he tried his best
The gold around his chest
Couldn’t save el salty dog diablo’s day

They hung a belaying line over the yard arm
The end they carefully made into a noose
El salty dog diablo would do no man harm
Cause he was dead when they cut him loose


Will The Tradewinds Call (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2003) (song#934)

Along the sand they strolled under stars at night
In view of the yellow tropic moon
When the sails dissappear, will our love drift from sight
Will you come again at the harvest moon
Must you sail away so soon, so soon
Will you come again at the harvest moon

Please take this fragrant red rose lei I give to you
Save your heart for me and please be mine
For only ’til the quarter moon will this lei be new
But my heart will be true ’til the end of time
For only ’til the quarter moon will this lei be new
But my heart will be true ’til the end of time

Oh my love, will you forever sail the wild raging sea
And will you some day on another far off island stand
The tradewinds that call away my lover from me
Find the power to bring him safely home I plea
The tradewinds that call away my lover from me
Find the power to bring him safely home I plea

Each night when the moon is bright she waits
In the little cottage window a candle burns
Will she see her sailor return or is it too late
Will the tradewinds call for love’s return
When will his ship return, his ship return
Will the tradewinds call for love’s return


Old Hawaiian Waltz (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2003) (song#935)

Island violins were playing that old Hawaiian waltz
In a little seaside bar under tropic stars
But I was alone with a dear john letter you see
While the band played that old Hawaiian waltz for me

I knew love but one day love up and died
Now I’m lost without you down here by my side
I could make excuses but I wonder who’s at fault
And the band played again that old Hawaiian waltz

Here on the sand the moon shines down on the seaside bar
I’ve got nothing to wish upon, not even a star
I thought her love was true but it turned out false
And the band played again that old Hawaiian waltz

That old Hawaiian waltz is such a dreamy island tune
But I didn’t see the rocks upon which the dream as strewn

I knew love but one day love up and died
Now I’m lost without you down here by my side
I could make excuses but I wonder who’s at fault
And the band played again that old Hawaiian waltz

Here on the sand the moon shines down on the seaside bar
I’ve got nothing to wish upon, not even a star
I thought her love was true but it turned out false
And the band played again that old Hawaiian waltz


Fair Tahiti (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2003) (song#936)

As the summer comes to an end
Here will come the winter wind
But we will laugh and bid good day
As on the northeast wind we sail away
On the northeast wind we sail away

Sailin’ off the northeast wind
Headin’ toward the southwest again
Fair Tahiti ‘ore the horizon lays
French Polynesia and paradise bays
Fair Tahiti where lovers play

Old man winter comes with badness
But ours won’t be one of sadness
Isles of paradise are waiting there
Warm tradewinds blowing everywhere
Warm tradewinds blowing everywhere

Sailin’ off the northeast wind
Headin’ toward the southwest again
Fair Tahiti ‘ore the horizon lays
French Polynesia and paradise bays
Fair Tahiti where lovers play

We’ll send a postcard with island cheer
Might even say wish you were here
While we’re working on our island tan
On fair Tahiti’s warm island sand
On fair Tahiti’s warm island sand

Sailin’ off the northeast wind
Headin’ toward the southwest again
Fair Tahiti ‘ore the horizon lays
French Polynesia and paradise bays
Fair Tahiti where lovers play


Rollin’ Home To Old Maui (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2003) (song#937)

Time to stow the harpoons a whaler employs
Set those sails while the weather’s clear
Heave away boys and let’s make some noise
For old Maui island is where we’ll steer

Rollin’ home, rollin’ home, rollin’ home to old Maui
Rollin’ home over ocean foam
Rollin’ on down to old Maui

Now boys we’ll sing a joyful song
Sing out the watches through the night
Now boys we’ll sing as we sail along
Old Maui will soon be in our sight

Up in the rigging hear the winds there sing
Sounds like an angry monsoon gale
Up the mast, sheets flying like bird wings
Yard arms loaded with tightened sails

Break out the rum, it’s time to jig
Strum the ukulele and sing wowie
Play a tune for luau kalua pig
Rollin’ on down to old Maui

Rollin’ home, rollin’ home, rollin’ home to old Maui
Rollin’ home over ocean foam
Rollin’ home to old Maui

Break out the rum, it’s time to jig
Strum the ukulele and sing wowie
Play a tune for luau kalua pig
Rollin’ on down to old Maui

Rollin’ home, rollin’ home, rollin’ home to old Maui
Rollin’ home over ocean foam
Rollin’ home to old Maui


Sushi Poi Mac (Larry W. Jones 01/17/2003) (song#938)

Oh, if I could just eat Poi all day long
I would be such a happy Hawaiian guy
Living on Poi just can’t be wrong
Without Poi to eat, I’d sit down and cry

Oh, if I could just eat Poi through the day
Whether I’m working or on the boat deck
I would get direct deposit Poi as my pay
Instead of this boring old paycheck

Poi comes in varieties. I love them all. Wow
You can make it at home or buy it at the luau
I like it when topped with sushi fish
And check out the recipe for jalepeno Poi chip dish

Poi makes me a happy Hawaiian, It’s like a snack
Plain old Poi made in my kitchen sink
Just add fish, and make it a Sushi Poi Mac
Sounds delicious, don’t you think

I could eat Poi through the tropic nights
I grew up on Poi in my Mama’s womb
An island without Poi, that gives me frights
That would mean for me impending doom

Doctors say minerals are what you need
If you don’t want to die
Since Poi has few, I’m afflicted indeed
So I’ll just say Aloha good-bye

Well, here I am on my death bed
But I am a happy Hawaiian dude
Why, you ask. Are you looped in the head
Oh no. Poi is just good Hawaiian hospital food


A Kiss So Sublime (Larry W. Jones 01/17/2003) (song#939)

It’s just like I told you, love was meant to be
Who could conceive it, this love to transmit
I have this strange feeling that we’ve met before
How else could love meet us on this island shore

For this island moment of bliss
Some search for a lifetime
For an island moment like this
Just a moment in time
A kiss so sublime

I never conceived this would happen to me
Some search for a lifetime
For an island moment like this

Islands change everything, then love remains
It’s something so caring, I see it so plain
And if I’m just dreaming, don’t let me awake
I hope love’s not scheming, my heart to break

For this island moment of bliss
Some search for a lifetime
For an island moment like this
Just a moment in time
A kiss so sublime

This could be a sign from the realms up above
But I only wanna know if it’s really true love
Some search for a lifetime
For an island moment like this
A kiss so sublime


Before Your Island Love (Larry W. Jones 01/17/2003) (song#940)

I know now how I make it through each day
The island’s awash with rainbows instead of shades of gray
I just look into your eyes and thank the stars above
Life did not arrive before your island love

It was just an ordinary mainland life
All my dreams just passed me by
Now my heart is free from grief and strife
You’re on this island and my dreams aren’t in the sky

Life did not arrive before your island love
I always needed someone, I never felt alive
I just existed on the mainland, doing nine to five
Life did not arrive before your island love

I know now how I make it through each day
The island’s awash with rainbows instead of shades of gray
I just look into your eyes and thank the stars above
Life did not arrive before your island love
Life did not arrive before your island love


A Paradise Angel (Larry W. Jones 01/17/2003) (song#941)

You must be a paradise angel
Sent to heavenly isles
For I see a paradise angel
In your polynesian angel eyes

You must be a paradise angel
Sent on the tradewind breeze
For I heard words so heavenly
For my empty heart to appease

You must be a paradise angel
Sent to an island so warm
My heart is warmed like the sun
And my life you surely reform

A paradise angel you must be, sent to heavenly isles
I’m in heaven whenever I see your heavenly smile

You must be a paradise angel
From some place that lovers speak of
For you have spoken to my heart
You are my island angel love


A Mist Of Dew (Larry W. Jones 01/18/2003) (song#942)

I dream of Leilani with her long black hair
Born as a mist of dew on the balmy island air
I see her dancing with a smooth hula sway
Joyous as the flowers that adorn her lovely lei

So many were the sweet refrains that she would sing
Beautiful as birds of paradise in the tropic spring
Yes, I dream of Leilani with her long black hair
Drifting as a mist of dew on the balmy island air

Now I dream of Leilani with her beguiling smile
Alive with laughter, the beauty of the tropic isle
I hear steel guitars playing their artistic style
As a tear forms in my heart for my dreams that die

Sighing like the tradewinds as they go out to sea
Crying for the lost love that wasn’t meant to be
I long for Leilani with her long black hair
Gone as a mist of dew on the balmy island air

I dream of Leilani and the love that we had planned
Still within my heart but gone from island sand
Her beguiling smile is in my dreams the same as new
But now she has gone it seems just like a mist of dew

Now the fragrant flowers will no more crown her lei
And her gentle dances will no more do her hula sway
Yes, I dream of Leilani with her long black hair
Born as a mist of dew on the balmy island air
I dream of Leilani with her long black hair
Born as a mist of dew on the balmy island air


I Sailed Back (Larry W. Jones 01/18/2003) (song#943)

I sailed back to the island dear
I sat beneath tall palm trees
I went to the island for to find some cheer
And find again the dream for me

The waves still come to kiss the shore
And the tradewinds still whisper by
But things are not as they were before
Before you and I kissed the isles goodbye

I sailed back to the island dear
For our childhood place I longed to see
But at our childhood place I shed a tear
For it was our childhood where I longed to be

I sailed back to the island dear
And I dreamed a little dream
But it was so sadly clear
That we were just islands in the stream

But if we die this side of paradise
Here is where I want to go
Back to our childhood isle so nice
I’ve sailed to where the tradewinds blow


A Fair Island Maid (Larry W. Jones 01/18/2003) (song#944)

A fair island maid to the mainland had strayed
But with her tropic setting it didn’t agree
This fair island maid cried and wept with dismay
And dreamed of her island out in the blue sea

Oh, the tradewinds blow and the lei blossoms grow
On my fair island out in the blue sea

Here sadly I roam and I dream of my home
Where island boys and wahinis in oceans there play
Those Maui chimes ring and island music they sing
And a welcome of Aloha is what they all say
The islands are pleasant and calling to me

Oh, the tradewinds blow and the lei blossoms grow
On my fair island out in the blue sea

I know if I please, I could stay here with ease
For there will come suitors for fair maids like me
But the one whom I wed must be from islands instead
To him I will go, to my fair island out in the blue sea

Oh, the tradewinds blow and the lei blossoms grow
On my fair island out in the blue sea
Oh, the tradewinds blow and the lei blossoms grow
On my fair island out in the blue sea


Dream Thou Of Me (Larry W. Jones 01/18/2003) (song#945)

Lovely wahini, dream thou of me
Moonlight and lovedrops abide here for thee
Breeze of the tradewinds bring love your way
Dream by the moonlight, slumber away

Lovely wahini, song of my love
Dream while I play thee my tunes thereof
Here on this island in the blue sea
Lovely wahini, dream thou of me

Lovely wahini, beauty to see
Islands are calling your love to me
Moonlight and lovedrops for thee are born
Blossoms of love may thine heart adorn

Lovely wahini, your dream now impart
Love from the island in the blue sea
Share your love dream within mine heart
Lovely wahini, dream thou of me


Dream Without A Trace (Larry W. Jones 01/18/2003) (song#946)

Softly fell the teardrop into my empty hand
Soon there fell another as I stood on island sand
I watched them flow together and very soon
I saw reflected there the crying tropic moon

This pool of teardrops put on quite a show
Another lonely teardrop fell there just as clear
Then another added to my tears of woe
Now at last I knew the meaning of my fear

Soon the moon was shattered, drowned in my hand
Then I felt the flow of salty rain begin
It was raining from my eyes to my chagrin
Down to the ground to disappear in island sand

Every single salty drop of tears it seems
Were there to wash you from my island dreams
As if from every drop was wrung my broken heart
In tears I saw the tropic moon and your love for me depart

Now there’s nothing left but lonely emptiness
My heart is now a darkened hollow space
Gone is the love that my heart once possessed
For you have gone just like a dream without a trace


On Full Moonlight Bay (Larry W. Jones 01/19/2003) (song#947)

When the moon in the twilight shines over the bay
And kisses the flowers in my love’s ginger lei
Then my heart fills with love when I hear her say
She will be mine forever on full moonlight bay

Aloha la, la, la, e, ay
My love’s here today
She’s the flower of the island
Our love’s here to stay
Aloha la, la, la, e, ay
Birds of paradise say
Leilani is the island beauty
On full moonlight bay

Got an outrigger canoe and a paddle today
And an extra seat in it for my love to stay
Our little grass shack where we love and play
That’s why we’re so happy on full moonlight bay

Aloha la, la, la, e, ay
My love’s here today
She’s the flower of the island
Our love’s here to stay
Aloha la, la, la, e, ay
Birds of paradise say
Leilani is the island beauty
On full moonlight bay

When the sun is just setting and the moon in array
We stroll on the beach at the end of the day
Just me and Leilani and in her hair ginger lei
Singing songs of Aloha on full moonlight bay

Aloha la, la, la, e, ay
My love’s here today
She’s the flower of the island
Our love’s here to stay
Aloha la, la, la, e, ay
Birds of paradise say
Leilani is the island beauty
On full moonlight bay


Kailani’s Song (Larry W. Jones 01/19/2003) (song#948)

Like a knife through my heart that no doctor can heal
Is the sadness of my soul which no song can reveal
No more can I hold her or see her sweet smile
For Kailani, my true love, is gone from my isle
Kailani, my true love, is gone from my isle

Like the moon on the sea, her love shined for me
And warmly she said our love would ever be
But the enemy death came so wicked and vile
And Kailani, my true love, is gone from my isle
Kailani, my true love, is gone from my isle

Dark as when clouds have covered night skies
Likewise in sadness so broken my heart here lies
Oh, save words for others who’s hearts still can smile
For Kailani, my true love, is gone from my isle
Kailani, my true love, is gone from my isle


Song Child Of The Isle (Larry W. Jones 01/19/2003) (song#949)

Aloha, E Komo Mai, for I long to hear you
Lovely Malina, song child of the isle
Come sing for the hearts dear to you
Enchant with music and your sweet smile

Aloha, E Komo Mai, for I long to hear you
Lovely Malina, song child of the isle
Malina, song child of the isle
I long to hear you
Island mele, song child of the isle

Aloha, E Komo Mai, for the charm of the islands
Resides in your angelic voice
And at your singing, lovely, beguiling
Warmed are all hearts without any choice

Aloha, E Komo Mai, for I long to hear you
Lovely Malina, song child of the isle
Malina, song child of the isle
I long to hear you
Island mele, song child of the isle


To The Isles Of Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 01/19/2003) (song#950)

To the fair shores of Hawaii my heart longs to go
And feel the tradewinds where breezes there flow
Where steel guitars are playing sweet island songs
That will ever be heard where my heart so longs

Oh, take this island boy back to his home
To the isles of Hawaii where my soul belongs
Yes, take this island boy back to his home
To the isles of Hawaii where Aloha is strong

There will be vistas of beauty and stars every night
As I stroll on the sand with my love in sight
With a lei she will greet me and with it a smile
And I will hold my true love again on the isle

Oh, take this island boy back to his home
To the isles of Hawaii where my soul belongs
Yes, take this island boy back to his home
To the isles of Hawaii where Aloha is strong

No longer will I on this mainland debate
Whether to go home or to linger and wait
I see in my dreams my love as she smiles
And my soul is so longing for Hawaiian isles

Oh, take this island boy back to his home
To the isles of Hawaii where my soul belongs
Yes, take this island boy back to his home
To the isles of Hawaii where Aloha is strong


Red Ginger (Larry W. Jones 01/19/2003) (song#951)

Oh, but might the red ginger endure always
To laugh upon green Hawaiian isles
Ne’er should the lovelies ever dismay
Ne’er should the beautiful cry

Bestowing enchantment to every beam
That descends on her petals of light
Yielding to breezes that on her cheeks kiss
And suckle the dewdrops at night

Oh, but might the red ginger endure always
To laugh upon green Hawaiian isles
Ne’er should the lovelies ever dismay
Ne’er should the beautiful cry

Abundant may the lilies romance the isles
Skylarking far off and nigh
Ne’er should the lovelies ever dismay
Ne’er should the beautiful cry

Unfolding their petals to magnificent sight
At dawning of day in soft tropic light
Holding a flowering luau
Til awakes the moon in the soft tropic night

Abundant may the lilies romance the isles
Skylarking far off and nigh
Ne’er should the lovelies ever dismay
Ne’er should the beautiful cry

Stilled by the lament in the quietness now
That discerns the dirth of fallen flowers
Oh, but might the bird of paradise fly
Again through my dream, love empower

Bittersweet is my heart for the fallen flowers
Their joy is so brief then departs away
They blossom at the spring’s gladden call
And wither at the end of brief days

Oh, but might the red ginger endure always
To laugh upon green Hawaiian isles
Ne’er should the lovelies ever dismay
Ne’er should the beautiful cry


Perfumed Island Songs (Larry W. Jones 01/19/2003) (song#952)

Come sing perfumed island songs again
Sing to my heart, my dear
Songs filled with soft, soothing balm
Love that’s so clear, so clear

Day dreams, gone by so long
Around them may your melodies shine
Slumber upon the breast of your songs
May you ever be mine, be mine

Come sing again
Sing to me perfumed island songs again
Oh come, yes, come sing again
Come sing perfumed island songs again

Don’t sing me songs that only relates
How love only starts
Come sing me songs that anticipates
Love deep in your heart, your heart

Don’t sing me songs as only foes do
Frigid, unwarmed and untrue
Come sing me songs of warm islands too
And of my love for you, for you

Come sing again
Sing to me perfumed island songs again
Oh come, yes, come sing again
Come sing perfumed island songs again


Malialani’s Refrain (Larry W. Jones 01/19/2003) (song#953)

Out in peaceful pacific seas, strolling the island so green
Among Hawaii’s lovely wahinis, beautiful was Malialani
So velvet her voice, a treasure; soft as the moonbeams above
Dark were her eyes, a pleasure; reflecting her ways of love

Malialani has left the tuberoses lining
The streams of Manoa valley
There her beauty is now reclining
Down by the peaceful sea

Malialani had polynesian flair, endearing hearts strolling along
No one could cry when she was there, birds of paradise sang her song
Manoa valley was her fair island home, tuberoses smiled at her long
The world was right where she would roam, hearts danced as she strolled along

Malialani has left the tuberoses lining
The streams of Manoa valley
There her beauty is now reclining
Down by the peaceful sea

Now eyes filled with tears overflowing, are seen in Manoa valley homes
Stars at night have fallen from showing, the way where love dreams do roam
Tradewinds of isles are but now dying, flowing from ocean waves of doom
Over the island with sadness of crying, they whisper softly over her tomb

Malialani has left the tuberoses lining
The streams of Manoa valley
There her beauty is now reclining
Down by the peaceful sea


Beloved More Than All (Larry W. Jones 01/19/2003) (song#954)

Fresh is the island dew of the morn
Fresh are lei flowers when they are born
Beloved is Aloha when home I dream of
Beloved is the sight of the one that I love

Beloved, yet dearer in love and in word
Beloved more than all are you my sweet love

Confirm again my love in your heart
So far from my island, so far apart
No angel of beauty would equal your face
No flower lei would equal your grace

Beloved, yet dearer in love and in word
Beloved more than all are you my sweet love


Down Among The Cane Fields (Larry W. Jones 01/19/2003) (song#955)

On the island I laughed and played
Life there was happy and free
Then I moved from where oceans tradewinds made
Far from my island in the sea

Down among the cane fields on that Hawaiian shore
Those happy days were free, days of island yore
Now I long to be where tradewinds still blow free
I long to be there on my island in the sea

My island boyhood was free from care
It was always summer there
Rainbows shined across the island fair
Down among the cane fields

My sweet island Mama was so dear
She’s now gone but her mem’ry’s near
Island songs were soft and clear
Down among the cane fields

There lived such a lovely island girl
Her smile was like the pearl
She gave my heart a whirl
Down among the cane fields

Many tropic moons have said goodbye
Since I breathed from island skies
May I return before I die
Down among the cane fields

Down among the cane fields on that Hawaiian shore
Those happy days were free, days of island yore
Now I long to be where tradewinds still blow free
I long to be there on my island in the sea


For You, Mahinalani (Larry W. Jones 01/20/2003) (song#956)

May your slumbers be soft, island cares not be oft
May sweet dreams be varied, young heart not harried
Sweet dreams by the hours, moon beams soft as flowers
As warm as rainbow showers, for you, Mahinalani

May sweet dreams over you flow
Island beauty, love bestow
By your side my love will grow
For you, Mahinalani

Don’t dream of things dread, may your dreams not be fright
Love has not fled, for I am here tonight
Whether sleeping or rousing, in delight or absence of glee
Warm is my heart by you browsing, for you, Mahinalani

May sweet dreams over you flow
Island beauty, love bestow
By your side my love will grow
For you, Mahinalani>

Love’s moon that may be diminished, shines again on your face
Pleasures maybe not finished, now take their right place
Love strong as when started, Aloha from island seas
My love has never parted, for you, Mahinalani

May sweet dreams over you flow
Island beauty, love bestow
By your side my love will grow
For you, Mahinalani


Kalanilei (Larry W. Jones 01/20/2003) (song#957)

She’s the beauty of the village and the fairest of the isle
Her eyes are polynesian and she lives down by the bay
The shape of her small step upon the sand is so in style
She’s the princess of my mele and her name is Kalanilei

Kalanilei, lovely Kalanilei
Stars come out at night to point me in her way
Kalanilei, princess of the isle
Long may you engender this heart of mine to smile

Island songs she sings as sweet as water from the streams
Her laughter in the tropic sun is happiness of dreams
Her long black hair is played with by the breezy air
And as a bird of paradise, her heart is free from care

Melodies of island songs from her are as the falls
From which refreshing waters come to one and all
The touch of her gentle hand as it softly fits in mine
Fills my dreams like rainbows here upon islands shine

Kalanilei, lovely Kalanilei
Stars come out at night to point me in her way
Kalanilei, princess of the isle
Long may you engender this heart of mine to smile


When Tuberoses Grow (Larry W. Jones 01/20/2003) (song#958)

Will you ever return, sweet Leilani
Was it essential that you depart
You are gone like the island flower
That blossomed within my heart

Shall I never more hold you closely
Will I hear your seductive voice again
When the spring tradewinds come, sweet Leilani
When tuberoses grow in the tropic rain

We have strolled along the shoreline
When your winning smile was in it’s bloom
Now I stand alone with dreams of mine
While they recall your sweet perfume

Shall I never more hold you closely
Will I hear your seductive voice again
When the spring tradewinds come, sweet Leilani
When tuberoses grow in the tropic rain

The island is melancholy as I remember
Near the swaying palms where we played
And in my heart still burns the embers
Of our island love before you strayed

Shall I never more hold you closely
Will I hear your seductive voice again
When the spring tradewinds come, sweet Leilani
When tuberoses grow in the tropic rain


Ku’u Ipo Mailelani (Larry W. Jones 01/20/2003) (song#959)

Here I am thinking of my Mailelani
With polynesian eyes and long black hair
Her songs are soft and flows so free
My gentle ku’u ipo Mailelani

Gentle Mailelani
My ku’u ipo Mailelani
Her laugh is light, eyes so bright
My gentle ku’u ipo Mailelani

I love her winning polynesian ways
She’s as warm as the island’s sunny rays
My love for her is so ablaze
My gentle ku’u ipo Mailelani

Gentle Mailelani
My ku’u ipo Mailelani
Her laugh is light, eyes so bright
My gentle ku’u ipo Mailelani

Her home is here on this tropic isle
Every week I go to see her gentle smile
Being beautiful is just her natural style
My gentle ku’u ipo Mailelani

Gentle Mailelani
My ku’u ipo Mailelani
Her laugh is light, eyes so bright
My gentle ku’u ipo Mailelani


A Mighty Fast Ship (Larry W. Jones 01/20/2003) (song#960)

The Falls of Clyde is a mighty fast ship
With a mighty fast captain too
He commands the deck with a firm sailor’s grip
And keeps an eagle’s eye on the salty crew
I can’t stay in San Francisco, work’s too hard
I’m leavin’ from old San Francisco town
I’m goin’ where I don’t need no union card
When the Falls of Clyde comes sailing down

Ahoy! for Hawaii
I’m bound for old Lahaina town
I’ll take my sea bag on the tradewind breeze
When the Falls of Clyde comes sailing down

The Falls of Clyde has a salty dog crew
And they sing sultry Hawaiian wahini songs
They pull the sails and steer westward too
While the tradewinds blow the ship along
The sails go up and the rigging lines sing
And the great steering wheel goes round
Ahoy! and fare thee well, ’cause I’m leaving
When the Falls of Clyde comes sailing down

There my island girl wears a flower lei
She’ll be there to meet me at the quay
I’ll hold her again as the sun goes down
The Falls of Clyde docks at old Lahaina town
So, I’ll kiss old San Francisco goodbye
And in Hawaii I’ll not wear a frown
I’ll be back with my sweet bird of paradise
When the Falls of Clyde comes sailing down

Ahoy! for Hawaii
I’m bound for old Lahaina town
I’ll take my sea bag on the tradewind breeze
When the Falls of Clyde comes sailing down

I’ll Be A Sailor (01/21/2003) (song#961)

I’ll be a sailor and sail with the wind
And swing in my hammock when the night shadows come
I’ll be a sailor with my sea bag and rum
And stand before the mast ’til my sailin’ days are done

Fare thee well my Lani dear
I’ll dream of you through the waves and spray
Fare thee well for I’ll be gone a year
I’ll be a sailor far, far away

I’ll be a sailor, ship ahoy is what they cry
I’ll sail only until the day when I must die
The islands of my childhood, my love, my tears
Still call me back after all these mariner years

I’ll be a sailor and feel the salty spray
With the prow dipping low and the wind in my face
I’ll climb the mast and in the crow’s nest stand
Looking for warm islands in the sun and sand

Fare thee well my Lani dear
I’ll dream of you through the waves and spray
Fare thee well for I’ll be gone a year
I’ll be a sailor far, far away

I’ll be a sailor, and when my sailin’s done
I’ll come back with my sea bag and rum
I’ll come with this true heart of mine, dear
And on the island I’ll kiss away my Lani’s tears


Dear Old Island Home (Larry W. Jones 01/21/2003) (song#962)

Way out across the deep blue ocean
Far, far away
There’s where turns my heart’s emotion
There’s where the island folks stay
For many lonely mainland vocations
Sadly I roamed
Now I long for that island plantation
And for my folks on my dear island home

These mainland days are sad and dreary
Everywhere I roam
And now, Oh how my heart is weary
Far from my dear folks’ island home

All around that tropic isle I wandered
When life was young
And many peaceful days I squandered
Many island songs I sung
On the island I played with my brothers
So happy was I
Now take me to my sweet island mother
There let me live and die

These mainland days are sad and dreary
Everywhere I roam
And now, Oh how my heart is weary
Far from my dear folks’ island home

A little grass shack by the flowering fern
One that I love
Still sadly there my memories turn
When I think thereof
When will I see those rainbows shining
And the sea that turns into foam
When will I hear the ukulele defining
Sweet life in my dear old island home

These mainland days are sad and dreary
Everywhere I roam
And now, Oh how my heart is weary
Far from my dear folks’ island home


Unfold Your Heart (Larry W. Jones 01/21/2003) (song#963)

Unfold your heart love, and attend to me
The warm tropic breeze drifts upon the sea
The stars like diamonds roam the skies above
And the full moon sheds it’s beams of love

Before Diamond Head awakes to the sun’s early rays
Before pacific waters reflect the blue tropic day
Unfold your heart love, and attend to me
While stars shine above and the moon’s on the sea

Unfold your heart love, and attend to me
Through our island days, love will always be
Love will steer our ship with dreams as we rove
And guided by the star of love to our island cove

Before Diamond Head awakes to the sun’s early rays
Before pacific waters reflect the blue tropic day
Unfold your heart love, and attend to me
While stars shine above and the moon’s on the sea


Another Luau Gig (Larry W. Jones 01/26/2003) (song#964)

Another night, another luau gig
The tourists come and I’m on my way
Another night, another luau gig
Singin’ and workin’ my island life away

The big kahuna said I’d get paid weekly
And that’s exactly how I’m compensated
Another night, another luau gig
Singin’ and workin’ my island life away

Another night, another luau gig
The tourists come and I’m on my way
Another night, another luau gig
Singin’ and workin’ my island life away

The wife and kids are so forgiving
That’s the reason I can sleep in the day
They’re the reason I keep on singing
Singin’ and workin’ my island life away

Another night, another luau gig
The tourists come and I’m on my way
Another night, another luau gig
Singin’ and workin’ my island life away


Oahu County Rose (Larry W. Jones 01/26/2003) (song#965)

Tonight I’m dreaming of Oahu County
In Hawaii where the tradewinds blow
Over the palms and island flowers
And over my sweet Oahu County rose

I still hear those island folks singing
While the steel guitars play
I still hear that ukulele ringing
On the island down by the bay

Tonight I’m dreaming of Oahu County
In Hawaii where the tradewinds blow
Over the palms and island flowers
And over my sweet Oahu County rose

The fragrance of sweet lei flowers
Was on the air like her perfume
As my sweet island girl strolled beside me
Beneath that full Oahu County moon

Tonight I’m dreaming of Oahu County
In Hawaii where the tradewinds blow
Over the palms and island flowers
And over my sweet Oahu County rose


Where Islands Dwell (Larry W. Jones 01/27/2003) (song#966)

Over blue seas where oceans swell
Over blue seas, there’s islands
Over blue seas where islands dwell
All you find is well

On the isle where time is slow
On the island, flowers grow
On the isle where time is slow
That’s where I will go

Beside the bay where dolphins play
Inside the bay, dolphins play
Beside the bay where love displays
I will spend my days

Over the isle where rainbows shine
Over the island, rainbows shine
Over the isle she looks divine
I will make her mine

Close your eyes and dream of me
Close your eyes and dream
Close your eyes and believe in me
Sing a song for me

Close your eyes and dream of me
Close your eyes and dream
Close your eyes and believe in me
Sing a song for me


Lahaina Girl (Larry W. Jones 01/28/2003) (song#967)

Lahaina girl, I saw you on the island sand
Then you touched me with warm island hands
Your fragrance is on the wind
Lahaina girl, my resistance is about to bend

Lahaina girl, you live in blue Hawaiian skies
You hold my heart just like a prize
Your love I intend to win
Lahaina girl, where have you been

I could learn to love you, Lahaina girl
I could learn to live in your world
The islands have called me to you
Lahaina girl

Flowers bloom sweetly in the island sun
A new day will dawn when we are one
Just say “I do” and give my heart a whirl
Lahaina girl

I could learn to love you, Lahaina girl
I could learn to live in your world
The islands have called me to you
Lahaina girl

Flowers bloom sweetly in the island sun
A new day will dawn when we are one
Just say “I do” and give my heart a whirl
Lahaina girl


Time And The Moon (Larry W. Jones 01/28/2003) (song#968)

Time and the moon
It’s the month of June
The stars are out tonight
Spent the day down by the bay
With my island girl delight
Well, here comes the moon in time to croon
So, with my girl I’m spendin’ time
Time and the moon

Our love is like the monsoon rain
She’s got my heart, it’s plain
The stars are shining bright
I intend to stay so we can play
Dance under tropic stars tonight
Well, here comes the moon in time to croon
So, with my girl I’m spendin’ time
Time and the moon

I don’t know how
This came about
But I don’t question everything
Must have been the month of June
It must be an island thing
Well, here comes the moon in time to croon
So, with my girl I’m spendin’ time
Time and the moon

Must have been the month of June
It must be an island thing
So, with my girl I’m spendin’ time
Time and the moon


Your Every Need (Larry W. Jones 01/28/2003) (song#969)

Polynesian hair a-blowin’
Your eyes just bid adieu
All the dreams that you’re a-showin’
Are only just for you

Pick an island flower lei
Pull the petals from the string
Let them fall just where they may
How can an empty heart, love bring

See the tradewind breeze a-blowin’
All the flowers down the beach
Your vanity is over flowin’
When it’s empty love you preach

Oh, girl with the polynesian hair
One day you’ll have to plead
And you will find that I still care
And I’ll fill your every need

Pick an island flower lei
Pull the petals from the string
Let them fall just where they may
How can an empty heart, love bring

Oh, girl with the polynesian hair
One day you’ll have to plead
And you will find that I still care
And I’ll fill your every need


The Best Of Show (01/28/2003) (song#970)

Seems everybody’s got the travelin’ fever
Everybody’s gotta roll
But I ain’t no eager beaver
I’ve got island music in my soul

Just unwind and let ukulele music move you
Don’t be afraid to do the stroll
Down the beach with your island love true
It’s just a method of mind control

I just rise with the island mountains
I just go where the tradewinds blow
I just sail over peaceful oceans
I just travel with the best of show

Where were you when the tropic moon shined
Where were you when the stars came out
Where were you when you didn’t have time
To figure out what love’s all about

Just unwind and let ukulele music move you
Don’t be afraid to do the stroll
Down the beach with your island love true
It’s just a method of mind control

I just rise with the island mountains
I just go where the tradewinds blow
I just sail over peaceful oceans
I just travel with the best of show


Learning And Living (Larry W. Jones 01/28/2003) (song#971)

I was raised in the shade by the old sugar mill
When growin’ up simple was still in style
A small island town would my life fulfill
And my life was like sweet music on the isle

Papa worked long up at the old sugar mill
He put all us kids through Kamehameha school
He didn’t make much but it paid the bills
And I thought playing bare footed was cool

Saturday nights at home, we were never alone
I was out on the tree swing, swingin’
Ukuleles on the front porch just a singin’
Life was grand in my old sugar mill island home

I was learning, learning what it meant to love
I was living, living in the arms of island love

Well, I grew up and moved away
Away from the island and the tropic moon
Now I remember those sweet island days
I guess I just grew up too soon

Saturday nights at home, we were never alone
I was out on the tree swing, swingin’
Ukuleles on the front porch just a singin’
Life was grand in my old sugar mill island home

I was learning, learning what it meant to love
I was living, living in the arms of island love


Old Lahaina Lily (Larry W. Jones 01/28/2003) (song#972)

Sailin’ ship comin’ through the reef there
See her sails flyin’ in the tropic breeze
See the island girls with flowers in their hair
Old Lahaina Lily, north latitude twenty degrees

My little outrigger glides along smoothly
Been diving for pearls here in the bay
Those mainland tourists are dressed so gaily
But them livin’ high don’t make me feel betrayed

Lahaina Lily, sailin’ like an island lady should
Sails strainin’ at the mast in the tropic sun
Sailin’ through the reef with those mainland goods
Comin’ back from San Francisco on the island run

Sometimes I want to be a mainland schemer
But I don’t have to be an island dreamer
Nothing on the mainland worthwhile to find
I’ll just watch Old Lahaina Lily leaving me behind

My little outrigger glides along smoothly
Been diving for pearls here in the bay
Those mainland tourists are dressed so gaily
But them livin’ high don’t make me feel betrayed

Sometimes I want to be a mainland schemer
But I don’t have to be an island dreamer
Nothing on the mainland worthwhile to find
I’ll just watch Old Lahaina Lily leaving me behind


Fair Pacific Paradise (Larry W. Jones 01/29/2003) (song#973)

From just outside the reef, near enough to hear
The pounding of the surf, paradise is near
Ever so serene the summer island years
I can’t hold back the flow of happy tears

Inside the reef, just beyond the blue
Bright blossom of a summer sea
Tradewinds of love are flowing through
Honolulu calls, fair pacific paradise to me

The surf is white and pure, a lovely day
Coral forests under the keel where dolphins play
Outriggers ride the combers in the spray
Honolulu, where Aloha and palm trees sway

Kissed by the tropic sun and rainbow showers
Umbrella trees, breadfruits, mangoes, and passion-flowers
Bright blossom of a summer sea
Honolulu calls, fair pacific paradise to me
Bright blossom of a summer sea
Honolulu calls, fair pacific paradise to me


Isle Of Sunshine And Song (Larry W. Jones 01/29/2003) (song#974)

In an ocean beyond beauty conceiving
On an island where nothing is wrong
There’s no sadness, no tears and no grieving
It’s an island of sunshine and song

It’s waves are of blue unbeholden
By most of the world of mankind
The island is blue, green and golden
As when moonlight and sunshine combines

Tradewinds whisper to me of it’s waters
Made of the millions of tears
From island sons and the daughters
Of voyagers from most distant years

Like diamonds from heaven the rain is
Rainbows are sure to come on
Whomever is blessed by its kiss
Loves an island of sunshine and song

In an ocean beyond beauty conceiving
On an island where nothing is wrong
There’s no sadness, no tears and no grieving
It’s an island of sunshine and song

Like diamonds from heaven the rain is
Rainbows are sure to come on
Whomever is blessed by its kiss
Loves an island of sunshine and song


Birds Of Paradise (Larry W. Jones 01/29/2003) (song#975)

Birds of paradise from tropic regions
Fly through the islands the year long
They sing like birds of a feather in legions
And fill the islands with song

The balmy tradewinds of heaven
Lift up carefree wings to rejoice
It must have been here they were given
The songs of such beautiful voice

They glide along lovely warm beaches
In the cool night and sunny days
The songs of paradise birds reaches
From mountains to the beautiful bays

So fine are the colors that flatter
Paradise birds when in flight
Like the beauty of multi-hued waters
That welcome the beams of sunlight

Birds of paradise from tropic regions
Fly through the islands the year long
They sing like birds of a feather in legions
And fill the islands with song
Fly through the islands the year long
And fill the islands with song


Mountains Of Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 01/29/2003) (song#976)

Up through the clouds they tell their story
Wet with the warm tropic rain
Mountains of Hawaii bathed in glory
Sing to all their majestic refrain

Warmed by the rays of the sun’s light
Which God has supplied so replete
The mountains at night are in twilight
The moon shines here softly and sweet

Their waterfalls are like lofty fountains
Cascading to seas all day long
And between the valleys of mountains
Rainbows paint the sky with their song

There’s never a drought for to dry them
Hawaii’s mountains are in tropic seas
Eternity will always be with them
And my love for them will always be

Warmed by the rays of the sun’s light
Which God has supplied so replete
The mountains at night are in twilight
The moon shines here softly and sweet

There’s never a drought for to dry them
Hawaii’s mountains are in tropic seas
Eternity will always be with them
And my love for them will always be


An Island Mona Lisa (Larry W. Jones 01/29/2003) (song#977)

Leilani was as beautiful as the morning
Polynesian eyes and dark hair streaming
Strolling in the sand without a warning
I thought that I must be dreaming

When I saw her, a smile came to my face
But when I spoke my voice was creaking
Leilani was an island girl with angel’s grace
She was the dream that I was seeking

I had searched so long to find her now
At last my dream was alive and real
But Leilani then said not to love avow
She was only my dream, my sweet ideal

Leilani was the object of men’s desire
But she was where I couldn’t come up higher
She was the dream that had arisen
Just an island song in a phantom prison

Leilani was a dream not to be attained
An island Mona Lisa I have named her
Leilani was a dream that can’t be gained
I will always love though I never gained her


Where Love Was Meant (Larry W. Jones 01/29/2003) (song#978)

In the month of May and in the June time
Islands are full of lei blossoms so sweet
When the mountains point to the sun at noontime
Down comes the rays of the tropic heat

Here in my heart I feel that season
She’s my island love, my only one
I’ll love her always and for good reason
She’s my island girl, my noonday sun

Like a cinder ball in my heart now burning
The fire of love just can’t be tamed
It glows in my heart and keeps on yearning
For my island love, my island flame

She looks so shy and her voice is tender
She’s the dream of all my days
The months of May and June will render
An island rose where lovers play

From island bays tradewinds are blowing
Into the misty valleys the rains are sent
It’s not just the sun with warmth that’s glowing
She’s in my heart where love was meant
It’s not just the sun with warmth that’s glowing
She’s in my heart where love was meant


As Long (Larry W. Jones (02/02/2003) (song#979)

Make the moon tumble and disappear
And I won’t be concerned or fear
As long as you are near

Every touch conveys a rush
It’s more than just a crush
As long as you are near

Let’s just imagine love tomorrow
Leave the past behind
On the isle where tradewinds blow
Our love will be refined
Choose Aloha love that I bring
And my heart will for you ever sing
As long as you are near

Let’s just imagine love tomorrow
Leave the past behind
On the isle where tradewinds blow
Our love will be refined
Choose Aloha love that I bring
And my heart will for you ever sing
As long as you are near

As long, as long as you are near


As The Island Tide (Larry W. Jones 02/02/2003) (song#980)

Just as an island angel from the sky you came
On the tradwind breeze for my heart to tame
So complete and mending was the love you brought
My heart realized what love had really taught

It seemes I scrambled all my life
Searching for a love to make life right
Here on this isle I know that I have found
What I have searched for the whole world round

I will love you my whole life long
Forever strolling by your side
Our love will be just like an island song
And as never ending as the island tide

Aloha is the love you will find in me
Thankfully, not just a dream you came to be
And who cares what the future is to be
As long as you are right here next to me

I will love you my whole life long
Forever strolling by your side
Our love will be just like an island song
And as never ending as the island tide


The Aloha Way (Larry W. Jones 02/02/2003) (song#981)

When someone on an island loves you
It’s wonderful when they just love you, the Aloha way
That’s why I’m never sad when I’m close to you
When you need a friend to know you, the Aloha way

Wider than the widest sea is
That’s how you’ll know my love is real
Bigger than the tropic moon is
The Aloha way will beams of love reveal

When someone on an island loves you
It’s wonderful when they just love you, the Aloha way
Love will endure though we laugh or cry
As long as we always try, the Aloha way

Nobody knows where island stars may guide us
But this I’m sure I can say
Our love will always grow if you just
Share your love with me the Aloha way, the Aloha way


An Aloha Love Song (Larry W. Jones 02/02/2003) (song#982)

Well I was crusin’ on a ship to nowhereville
When I saw love on the island leeward side
Now the search is over and I’m anchored still
Somehow love just appeared on the evening tide

Life is not the same now that love is a love song
Every night I can’t wait for the island music to start
If I had to give it a name, I’d just say it’s an Aloha love song
Because it’s in perfect harmony with my heart

Now there’s no more tears in my eyes to blind me
Our tomorrows will be as eternal as the sea
Every day will find the tropic sun behind me
To paint a rainbow of love for you and me

Life is not the same now that love is a love song
Every night I can’t wait for the island music to start
If I had to give it a name, I’d just say it’s an Aloha love song
Because it’s in perfect harmony with my heart


Your Polynesian Smile (Larry W. Jones 02/02/2003) (song#983)

Constantly and eternally
Every minute with you
Is like the moon on the sea
A tropic dream come true

And I can see the horizon
Will be left unchanged
Because our island love
Will be tomorrow the same and…

Each and every day
Give me love in your Aloha way
I’ll let you melt my heart all the while
With your polynesian smile

I’ll find the time to tell you
That I really care
And right here in our Hawaii blue
Love we will ever share

Every day I’ll see a rainbow
Because you’re my island sun
My Aloha is more than just hello
Because my heart your love has won

Each and every day
Give me love in your Aloha way
I’ll let you melt my heart all the while
With your polynesian smile


Longer On My Mind (Larry W. Jones 02/02/2003) (song#984)

Well, life is slow on island time
And you stay longer on my mind
I dream of you from five til nine
And you stay longer on my mind

Here in the islands too
I see love within your eyes so true
It makes me dream of you from five til nine
And you stay longer on my mind

Regardless of how far
Regardless of how wide
You will be my evening star
And your island love will be my guide

Well, life is slow on island time
And you stay longer on my mind
I dream of you from five til nine
And you stay longer on my mind

I like the way you look at me
You’re not just a dream visually
You just knock my feet off island sand
When you say I’m your island man

Well, life is slow on island time
And you stay longer on my mind
I dream of you from five til nine
And you stay longer on my mind


I Love Her True (Larry W. Jones 02/02/2003) (song#985)

She’s the one that I adore
I swear I do
I could never ask for more
Here in Hawaii blue
I love her true

She makes the island sing
So lovingly
Aloha is the love she brings
It speaks to me
I love her true

An island filled with flowers
Blue are the skies
An island love like ours
Will never die
I love her true

Full is the moon that shines
In tropic skies
Her love is just like wine
In loving eyes
I love her true

She’s the one that I adore
I swear I do
I could never ask for more
Here in Hawaii blue
I love her true


Aloha Love Is Your Name (Larry W. Jones 02/02/2003) (song#986)

You solved all life’s mysteries like a light in the darkness
Like the islands on their time, slowly love came
Like a ship in a harbor, firmly anchored in love
You solved all life’s mysteries, Aloha love is your name

Aloha is with you, love you brought to me
Let me sing you a love song, from the island you came
On the island beside you, in the wide peaceful sea
Aloha is with you, Aloha love is your name

On the island beside you
Let me sing you a love song, from the island you came

You solved all life’s mysteries like a light in the darkness
Like the islands on their time, slowly love came
Like a ship in a harbor, firmly anchored in love
You solved all life’s mysteries, Aloha love is your name


Lonely Island (Larry W. Jones 02/02/2003) (song#987)

Even a lonely island needs a friend
The stream keeps flowing without end
Are you just a lonely island without faith
One day love will surely flow your way

Are you a lonely island with no friend
Well here I am
A love boat to save you I will send
My love is gentle like a lamb
Be it the night or in the day
Be it the flood or ebbing tide
Don’t be an island in dismay
You will find me by your side

When all you see is rain it seems
And you’re an island all alone
The love you see is not in dreams
I am here to guide you home

Are you a lonely island with no friend
Well here I am
A love boat to save you I will send
My love is gentle like a lamb
Be it the night or in the day
Be it the flood or ebbing tide
Don’t be an island in dismay
You will find me by your side

When all you see is rain it seems
And you’re an island all alone
The love you see is not in dreams
I am here to guide you home


Riding My Thumb For You (Larry W. Jones 02/02/2003) (song#988)

Riding my thumb across the country just for you
Investigating islands in the blue
Doing whatever things I have to do
Anything to get me close to you

I would sail the seven seas
Just so I could ask you please
When I send the call of love
Who would you be thinking of

Riding my thumb across the country just for you
Investigating islands in the blue
Doing whatever things I have to do
Anything to get me close to you
My love is on the tradewind breeze
Listen as it begs you please
Will you be my only love
Under moon and stars above

Dreams can’t come alive unless they’re true
And your love I would never fool
Please don’t make my dreams turn blue
My love is like the golden rule

Riding my thumb across the country just for you
Investigating islands in the blue
Doing whatever things I have to do
Anything to get me close to you
My love is on the tradewind breeze
Listen as it begs you please
Will you be my only love
Under moon and stars above


A Port In My Heart (Larry W. Jones 02/03/2003) (song#989)

My life is like an island in the stream
Alone among an ocean full of dreams
But love never anchored on my shore
I’m just an isle alone and nothing more

I remember when my heart had many ports
Love was like a fun filled island home
And love sailed in its many doors
But then love sailed the seas to roam

So there’s a port here in my heart for you
If your dreams have been broken too
If love’s anchor broke and left you blue
Then there’s a port here in my heart for you

We’ll paint rainbows red, blue, green and bright
Let the island cast its magic light
You and I won’t be alone any more
Love will anchor on our island shore

So there’s a port here in my heart for you
If your dreams have been broken too
If love’s anchor broke and left you blue
Then there’s a port here in my heart for you


For You Only (Larry W. Jones 02/03/2003) (song#990)

I’ve sailed to many islands in my salty life and time
I’ve sung some awful songs with bad rum and rhyme
But I’m done with sailing out across the blue
My song now is lawful when I say I love you true

Now what you’re thinking of me wasn’t meant to be
Please stop my life from sinking in the deep blue sea
Your love is the only important thing I ever knew
My song is for you only when I say I love you true

Time has taught me that many loves have come and gone
That was before you came and changed my life and song
The anchor for my life is now my love for you
My song is for you only when I say I love you true

You took the place of my salty life and time
You’re the island girl I’d love to make just mine
Your love is what I dream of when I dream of you
My song is for you only when I say I love you true

Time has taught me that many loves have come and gone
That was before you came and changed my life and song
The anchor for my life is now my love for you
My song is for you only when I say I love you true


No Real Mystery (Larry W. Jones 02/03/2003) (song#991)

There’s an explanation as to why
Every night the stars shine in the sky
There’s an explanation as to why
The tropic moon will bring the tide

And just like the stars and moon above
There’s no real mystery of
The explanation as to why
Your love belongs here in my life

I heard a voice on the tradewind breeze
That said that love would come to me
Like a lovely song it would surely start
And now I hear you singing to my heart

Just as the sun and moon and stars are right
You’re positioned in my heart every day and night

And just like the stars and moon above
There’s no real mystery of
The explanation as to why
Your love belongs here in my life

There’s no real mystery of
The explanation as to why
Your love belongs here in my life


My Wahini (Larry W. Jones 02/03/2003) (song#992)

Dark is the color of my wahini’s eyes
Her lips are soft as an island rose
And the prettiest face in Hawaiian skies
She lives where the tradewind blows
My wahini with the polynesian eyes

Dark is the color of my wahini’s eyes
Her face is so beyond compare
She sings a Hawaiian lullabye reprise
She lives on the island without a care
My wahini with the polynesian eyes

Dark is the color of my wahini’s eyes
I will love her always over there
She’s my wahini girl in paradise
She hula dances with polynesian flair
My wahini with the polynesian eyes

Dark is the color of my wahini’s eyes
Her lips are soft as an island rose
And the prettiest face in Hawaiian skies
She lives where the tradewind blows
My wahini with the polynesian eyes


TThe Girl Across The Sea (Larry W. Jones 02/03/2003) (song#993)

She spoke to me only with her eyes
And I assured her with only mine
She left a kiss upon my lips
And I swear it was as sweet wine

The love that from my soul did rise
Was like an island song divine
Should I of all love’s nectar prize
It would be her love and mine

Then I sent her a flower lei
In hopes that love would stay
And I sent her a note that day
That love might not fade away

But she only wore it in her hair
And then she sent it back to me
Now when I smell its fragrance there
I swear its the girl across the sea


Take Me To The Isle (Larry W. Jones 02/03/2003) (song#994)

Take me to the isle
I will sing among the palms
I will feel the paradise
When I hold you in my arms

The Aloha words, of paradise birds
Keep saying that you’re mine

Satisfy my heart with island songs
I will sing to you some more
In my arms where you belong
Take me to the island shore

The Aloha words, of paradise birds
Keep saying that you’re mine


Lonesome Bird Of Paradise (Larry W. Jones 02/03/2003) (song#995)

Lonesome bird of paradise
Your cries sound from the valley isle
You know that when she flew, it wasn’t right
I’ve known your heartbreak for awhile

Lonesone bird of paradise, you and I aren’t that diverse
Your song is sad in your little island universe
Your nest has been abandoned by the one you love
Lonesome bird of paradise, lonesome bird of love

To another island far away I took her memory
But there’s nowhere to run or hide in paradise
For that lonesome bird of paradise, love is so illusory
No matter where on earth or isle he flies

Lonesone bird of paradise, you and I aren’t that diverse
Your song is sad in your little island universe
Your nest has been abandoned by the one you love
Lonesome bird of paradise, lonesome bird of love


Beautiful Island Of The Sun (Larry W. Jones 02/03/2003) (song#996)

Beautiful island of the sun
You, my place of childhood fun
Though I may sail the seven seas
Your shores my heart will always please

Beautiful island of the sun
The place where paradise was planned
I look at you when day is done
And I know happiness in island sand

When island stars come out at night
I lift my eyes up to the sky
I wonder at such heavenly delight
Give praise to God from up on high

Beautiful island of the sun
The place where paradise was planned
I look at you when day is done
And I know happiness in island sand

I hear island songs on guitar strings
I feel ohana love here at my side
I know the joy that an island brings
Love here is as endless as the tide

Rainbows made by the sun will ever be
My island will always call to me
I will never be in want or need
My island is my paradise you see

Beautiful island of the sun
The place where paradise was planned
I look at you when day is done
And I know happiness in island sand


In The Twilight Sun (Larry W. Jones 02/03/2003) (song#997)

We gave up the mainland
And we moved from that big old town
To a warm and peaceful island
To watch the tropic sun go down

We fell in love with the island flowers
And watched the day turn to twilight
And we saw the sun in its setting hours
In a whole new wonderful light

The stars shined from the sky like diamonds
In a dark velvet southern sky
And I told her she was from the dreamlands
In the twilight sun and full moonlight

We lit the tiki torches in the island sand
Danced to guitar music from an island band
I said I loved her and that I always will
Our love was like brand new and time stood still

The stars shined from the sky like diamonds
In a dark velvet southern sky
And I told her she was from the dreamlands
In the twilight sun and full moonlight

And I told her she was from the dreamlands
In the twilight sun and full moonlight


Blue Lookin’ Tropic Moon (Larry W. Jones 02/04/2003) (song#998)

That old man in the tropic moon
He should be yellow but he’s lookin’ blue
I know if I wait here, then soon
He’ll shed another tear for me and you

That old man in the tropic moon
He’s losin’ some of his shine
I know that he can’t wait til noon
And it must be his cryin’ time

He looks so lonesome up there by himself
None of the stars are out
My heart and love are lonesome on the shelf
Since our love failed to sprout

That old man in the tropic moon
Used to have such a smiling face
I thought love always bloomed in June
But a blue moon took its place

That old man in the tropic moon
He’s losin’ some of his shine
I know that he can’t wait til noon
And it must be his cryin’ time
I know she’ll be gone by noon
And I know its cryin’ time


Island Blossoms Of Yellow Ginger (Larry W. Jones 02/04/2003) (song#999)

Island blossoms of yellow ginger
So fragrant in the warm sunlight
Sweeter than the rose that lingers
When the moon comes out at night

Island blossoms of yellow ginger
Wet with mountains’ misty air
One with love must never injure
A heart as yours so pure and fair

In your hair you wear a yellow ginger blossom
Your wealth to me exceeds a kingly ransom

Island blossoms of yellow ginger
With you my love will ever stay
So that love will always engender
Let me give to you this yellow ginger lei

Island blossoms of yellow ginger
Wet with mountains’ misty air
One with love must never injure
A heart as yours so pure and fair

Island blossoms of yellow ginger
With you my love will ever stay
So that love will always engender
Let me give to you this yellow ginger lei


One Thousand (02/04/2003) (#1000)

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

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