Another Island Love Song (Larry W. Jones 04/25/2003) (song#1401)

I’m writing another love song
Of islands in the sun
About a girl who done me wrong
And left my heart on the run

I’m writing another love song
With the same old story line
About a love that’s gone wrong
It seems to happen every time

She said that she would love me
Until the end of time
That time has come here by the sea
Cause my heart’s on the line

I’m writing another love song
This time I realize
That island love just don’t belong
Where there’s no paradise

She said that she would love me
And be my island dream
But now no one’s thinking of me
I’m just an island in the stream

I’m writing another love song
Of islands in the sea
About a line of lies and love gone wrong
This time the story line is me

I’m writing another love song
This time the story line is me



Love Of My Heart (Larry W. Jones 04/25/2003) (song#1402)

More than you know or realize
Love of my heart in tropic skies
Recently I know, I love you so
More than you know or realize

Whether you’re not here, or close my dear
Love of my heart, there’s no disguise
My love is deep and so sincere
More than you know or realize

My love for you will never die
This dream I own is like a prize
Aloha will never mean goodbye
Here on this isle of love called paradise

Oh, my heart would weep, I couldn’t sleep
If your love fled and said goodbye
Love of my heart, your love I’ll keep
More than you know or realize

Love of my heart, your love I’ll keep
More than you know or realize



A Love From Paradise (Larry W. Jones 04/25/2003) (song#1403)

You came from the islands in the sun
You found my heart and set it free
I don’t care if it was island dreams or island schemes
They all came true when you gave your love to me

You came from the islands in the sun
My love for you has just begun
I’ll love you forever and a day
Like an island rose where breezes play

If you ever return to the islands
And leave me here with just a memory
I would have to get off the mainland
And find your island in the sea

You came from the islands in the sun
You brought love where there was none
You will be forever in my eyes
And in my heart, a love from paradise

You will be forever in my eyes
And in my heart, a love from paradise



Make Believe Paper Moon (Larry W. Jones 04/25/2003) (song#1404)

I’m gonna buy me a paper moon
And make believe it’s real
A paper moon from a tropic June
That no one else can steal

And when those other island guys
Come for my girl to steal
They’ll have to find another tropic moon
And I’ll make believe that mine is real

When I look at my paper moon
It will be the truest moon of all
A paper moon from a tropic June
And I’ll make believe that it won’t fall

I guess I’ve had a million dreams
Of island love on a tropic shore
Someone just stole away my Lanilei
Under a tropic moon that she adored

I’m gonna buy me a paper moon
And make believe it’s real
A paper moon from a tropic June
That no one else can steal

And when those other island guys
Come for my girl to steal
They’ll have to find another tropic moon
And I’ll make believe that mine is real

They’ll have to find another tropic moon
And I’ll make believe that mine is real



Island Serenade For Two (Larry W. Jones 04/25/2003) (song#1405)

When I hear an island serenade for two
I dream of islands in the shade with you
And strolling in the sun til day was done
So many serenades ago

Every time that dream comes back to me
Like an island theme from eternity
It’s the same love song that’s painted blue
When I hear an island serenade for two

It was only yesterday, so many serenades ago
I still hear you say, Aloha where tradewinds blow
Then that song of paradise turned into heartfelt cries
When the serenade said Aloha which meant goodbye

So, darling, could there be another start
To revive from the ashes my lonely heart
Or will the crashes be my dreams of you
When I hear an island serenade for two



Singing All The Time (Larry W. Jones 04/25/2003) (song#1406)

Everything was colored blue, the whole day through
Like a sad old song
Even on the isle, nothing was worthwhile
Until you came along
Now only the skies are colored blue
It’s paradise since I met you

Now I’m singing all the time
About a love I know that’s mine
There in that island sand
I just needed a helping hand
And then you came from the blue
With a love so fresh and new
Your song was as soft os Maui chimes
Now I’m singing all the time

In Hawaii, dreams come true, me and you
Time itself might fly away
But here’s one thing that’s true
Island love is here to stay
Cause I’ll be forever loving you

Now I’m singing all the time
About a love I know that’s mine
There in that island sand
I just needed a helping hand
And then you came from the blue
With a love so fresh and new
Your song was as soft os Maui chimes
Now I’m singing all the time



The Island Of Oz (Larry W. Jones 04/25/2003) (song#1407)

Oh, what a night it was
A page from the island of Oz
A fantasy, a dream come true
When I fell in love with you

It was such a lovely place
Palm trees waved in sweet applause
You danced the hula with such grace
Like Dorothy from the island of Oz

All the stories of how things ought to be
Are in the glory of songs to sing of you and me

When those steel guitars started to ring
I could feel my heart then started to sing
Oh, what a night it was
A page from the island of Oz

It was such a lovely place
Palm trees waved in sweet applause
You danced the hula with such grace
Like Dorothy from the island of Oz

When those steel guitars started to ring
I could feel my heart then started to sing
Oh, what a night it was
A page from the island of Oz



Caught In Between (Larry W. Jones 04/26/2003) (song#1408)

If you get caught in between
A love that’s gone and an empty dream
It won’t be as bad as it may seem
Just tell the band to begin the beguine

It will remind you of the tropical moon
The kind you two shared that philanthropic June
For her new found love she will be so keen
Just tell the band to begin the beguine

It was on the island’s sandy shore
When she said she didn’t love me anymore
Well, if you take away the candy, the baby will cry
Her modus operandi was to say goodbye

It was a night of dance, filled with romance
Until that old man in the moon forgot to smile that month of June
And all too soon I was caught in between
A love that was gone and an empty dream

But now I’ll tell the band to begin the beguine
Maybe a flame will come again from the ashes
Maybe this time it won’t be a dream that crashes
If I tell the band to begin the beguine

Maybe this time I won’t get caught in between
A love that’s gone and an empty dream



Written Just For Me (Larry W. Jones 04/26/2003) (song#1409)


It was a song of island love
Written just for me
It was a tropic yellow moon above
That shined on me

I just let love lead the way
I strolled with her down by the bay
And it was an island symphony
A song of love where breezes play

Oh, I would be remiss not to mention her kiss
It was a song of island love
Written just for me

She’s strolling on the sandy shore
Hand in hand with me
Soon she’ll be wearing a ring and more
When we get married by the sea

To me her love is not a game
I just want to change her name
It was a song of love’s old flame
But it seemed so new to me

She’s the dream I was dreaming of
It was a song of island love
Written just for me



Her Island Poi (Larry W. Jones 04/26/2003) (song#1410)


Island poi, she calls me her island poi
Because I’m her island boy
And she’s a joy to me

She knows how to dish it out
Poi and fish without a doubt
She says a luau would be no good without
Her island poi

I really do enjoy her kiss
I’m her island boy and she’s my island miss
And she knows I’m the real McCoy
Her island poi

Island poi, she calls me her island poi
Because I’m her island boy
And she’s a joy to me

She knows how to dish it out
Poi and fish without a doubt
She says a luau would be no good without
Her island poi

I really do enjoy her kiss
I’m her island boy and she’s my island miss
And she knows I’m the real McCoy
Her island poi



We Can’t Rightly Know (Larry W. Jones 04/26/2003) (song#1411)

We can’t rightly know
If we will ever meet this way again
So let’s make this nightly glow
Turn into a flame long before then

Our Aloha won’t have to mean goodbye
This is the start of love, so let’s begin it
The way you said hello was sweet and shy
And when I said Aloha, my heart was in it

We can’t rightly know
When another love will drift by in the stream
So let’s make this nightly glow
Turn into love and not just an island dream

So, give your hand to me tonight
Let’s see if love will grow
Because tomorrow may never be so right
We can’t rightly know

So, give your hand to me tonight
Let’s see if love will grow
Because tomorrow may never be so right
We can’t rightly know



Broken Hearted Heart For Sale (Larry W. Jones 04/26/2003) (song#1412)

Heart for sale, a broken hearted heart for sale
A heart that’s just a little used, abused
One that’s totally confused
I have a broken hearted heart for sale

Who’s into buyin’, a heart that’s been cryin’
It might go for any price
It’s love in paradise went stale
I have a broken hearted heart for sale

Islands sing their songs of love where breezes play
I bring a broken hearted heart for sale today
If you want the joy of love
Then buy my decoy for love
I have a broken hearted heart for sale

Heart for sale, a broken hearted heart for sale
If you want a load of cares
Then buy my broken hearted wares
I’m through with island love affairs
I have a broken hearted heart for sale

I’m through with island love affairs
I have a broken hearted heart for sale



Old Lahaina Serenade (Larry W. Jones 04/26/2003) (song#1413)

That night in old Lahaina
Under that tropic moon
We heard the song of love
As the tradewind played it’s tune
We found a love that hasn’t strayed
With that old Lahaina serenade

Those beams of moonlight on the sand
The gleam of stars that looked so grand
That lover’s moon was shining so
That soon our hearts were set aglow
We found a love that hasn’t strayed
With that old Lahaina serenade

Our first kiss was like a rocket ride
The beating of our hearts we couldn’t hide
We found a love that’s still in tune
Under that old Lahaina tropic moon
We found a love that hasn’t strayed
With that old Lahaina serenade

Those beams of moonlight on the sand
The gleam of stars that looked so grand
That lover’s moon was shining so
That soon our hearts were set aglow
We found a love that hasn’t strayed
With that old Lahaina serenade



When Aloha Meant Good Day (Larry W. Jones 04/26/2003) (song#1414)

The moon was there in velvet skies
But it wasn’t the moon from paradise
I went mine and you went your way
That night when Aloha meant good day

Steel guitars were sounding in our ears
But it was only music for the flowing tears
I guess we ran out of things to say
That night when Aloha meant good day

The moon was there in velvet skies
But the man in the moon was in disguise
The wink he had was full of lies
And I think he knew that love had died

The moon was there but the stars were gone
No guiding light that would find the dawn
I lost your love and I lost my way
That night when Aloha meant good day

I lost your love and I lost my way
That night when Aloha meant good day



For You (Larry W. Jones 04/26/2003) (song#1415)

For you
My heart sings out, romance
I knew I had found a love that’s true
When I took a chance to dance with you

For your eyes
Were heavenly with no disguise
I knew I had found love in your arms
When I took a chance to win your charms

It was a magic moment of dreams
Soft guitars and you, scent of sweet perfume
While stars above shined down, it seems
From afar into your heart to make love bloom

For you
I know my heart was meant just for you
I knew I had found my greatest prize
When I took a chance on loving you in paradise



Garden Island Rose (Larry W. Jones 04/26/2003) (song#1416)

There’s someone whom I long to see
She’s a flower blooming by the sea
And I presume that she’s in love with me

She’s a garden island rose, Kauai knows
She lives where the tradewind softly blows
She’s my flower garden island rose

Although she lives so far away
Over in Kauai by a lovely bay
My heart will forever with her stay
There in Kauai in a town named Hanalei

She’s a garden island rose, Kauai knows
She lives where the tradewind softly blows
She’s my flower garden island rose

Although she lives so far away
Over in Kauai by a lovely bay
My heart will forever with her stay
There in Kauai in a town named Hanalei



Moon Glow Eyes (Larry W. Jones 04/26/2003) (song#1417)

Moon glow, in my eyes you make the moon glow
When those hands of yours I’m holding so
I wonder if you know
That you fill my eyes with moon glow

Moon glow, only you can put the light in
Eyes that only you I find delight in
I wonder if you know
That you fill my eyes with moon glow

Although the moon is still behind the hill
I know that soon it’s light will fill
These eyes of mine in dreams of you
I wonder if it will come true
This moon glow dream I have of you

Moon glow, I guess my eyes tell on my heart so
It’s filled with love for one who must know
That you fill my eyes with moon glow
It’s filled with love for one who must know
That you fill my eyes with moon glow



Sunny Weather (Larry W. Jones 04/26/2003) (song#1418)

This is paradise
The sun is high up in blue skies
Sunny weather
My girl and I are love birds of a feather
It’s sunny weather all the time

The day is fair
I placed a sunny flower in her hair
Sunny weather
My sweet girl and I just go together
It’s sunny weather all the time

When dark clouds went away
Blue skies were all I saw
The lark sings every day
And rainbows are in awe
This is the day I prayed for
What isles of love are made for
I’ve never played in sunny skies this way

Life is now a song
The dark clouds are all gone
Sunny weather
My girl and I are love birds of a feather
It’s sunny weather all the time



I Know Just When (Larry W. Jones 04/27/2003) (song#1419)

Tradewinds there blow again
That’s why here I go again
I just know when
To take a chance on love again

Tradewinds there sigh again
That’s why I’m in paradise again
It’s been so long since when
I took a chance on love back then

I always thought that finding paradise
Was just a futile exercise
Now I’ve found an island girl to love
She must have come from realms above
Rainbows are shining here again
My heart she just might even mend

Tradewinds there blow again
That’s why here I go again
I just know when
To take a chance on love again

Tradewinds there sigh again
That’s why I’m in paradise again
It’s been so long since when
I took a chance on love back then

Now I’ve found an island girl to love
She must have come from realms above
Rainbows are shining here again
My heart she just might even mend
I just know when
To take a chance on love again



Only One (Larry W. Jones 04/27/2003) (song#1420)

There are many islands in the sun
And many more where love was won
But when all is said and done
For me there will be only one, it’s true
There will never be another island love as you

There are many ways to love in island sun
And many ways to have a lot of fun
But when all is said and done
Aloha is for me the only one, it’s true
There will never be another dream come true as you

There are many island nights of sheer delight
Strolling in the sand and watching moonlit sights
But when all is going just so right
You’re the only one I want to hold tightly to
There will never be another island love as you

There are many island songs to sing
With ukulele tunes and island guitar strings
But when the moon is full and love is king
I know that soon it will bring a dream that’s true
There will never be another island love as you

There are many islands in the sun
And many more where love was won
But when all is said and done
For me there will be only one, it’s true
There will never be another island love as you



Winds Of Change (Larry W. Jones 04/30/2003) (song#1421)

The little grass shack is standing there still
The sun makes the islands feel so warm
Tradewinds are bringing change to old Lahaina town
Winds of change are blowing like a storm

Well the old sugar mill is still on the hill
But it doesn’t press cane in the little island ville
The high tide comes and the low tide goes
Where the winds of change blow nobody knows

Times have changed in old Lahaina town
It’s not the same old place I knew
Big ships are where there used to be canoes
And I’m not used to wearing these city shoes

But when the sun goes down on old Lahaina town
You can still hear the slack key guitar sound
Some things never change and that’s alright
Cause I’m headin’ home to old Lahaina town tonight



Dreaming Here Alone (Larry W. Jones 05/01/2003) (song#1422)

I’ll be dreaming here alone
Even though I know I’ll be so lonely
I don’t mind dreaming alone
As long as I know you’re lonely there too

I’ll be dreaming here alone
And if someone asks me why, I’ll try not to cry
My lonely dreams will atone
For these lonely nights away from paradise

My dreams will be near you, though you’re afar
Each lonely night I will hear you
And when the islands call, I’ll follow my star

So, darling, please dream there alone
Don’t lose your heart in that tropic zone
Until I’m dreaming there beside you
I’ll be dreaming here alone

Until I’m dreaming there beside you
I’ll be dreaming here alone




Yesterday So Long Ago (Larry W. Jones 05/01/2003) (song#1423)

It was yesterday, so long ago
I dreamed a dream that yesterday
You were on an isle where breezes blow
I dreamed of you again just yesterday

When will that dream be here beside me
When will these cloudy skies pass by
Where is that dream that’s been denied me
Where is that isle of paradise

It was yesterday, so long ago
I dreamed a dream that was so divine
Where your island is, I just don’t know
I’ve dreamed of you so many times

It was yesterday, so long ago
I dreamed a dream that yesterday
You were on an isle where breezes blow
I dreamed of you again just yesterday

When will that dream be here beside me
When will these cloudy skies pass by
Where is that dream that’s been denied me
Where is that isle of paradise

It was yesterday, so long ago
I dreamed of you again just yesterday



Moonlight In Hawaii Nei (Larry W. Jones 05/01/2003) (song#1424)

Dolphins in the bay
Palm trees doing a hula sway
Moonlight in Hawaii nei

Breakers tossing up the spray
Love and life the Aloha way
Moonlight in Hawaii nei

Tradewinds whisper their happy tunes
Every month is just like the month of June
Island love is a sweet bouquet
Where steel guitars and ukuleles play

A warm twilight summer day
Golden moon on a peaceful bay
Moonlight in Hawaii nei

Tradewinds whisper their happy tunes
Every month is just like the month of June
Island love is a sweet bouquet
Where steel guitars and ukuleles play

A warm twilight summer day
Golden moon on a peaceful bay
Moonlight in Hawaii nei



She’s My Island Girl (Larry W. Jones 05/01/2003) (song#1425)

If I don’t stroll with her every day
Then she’s not here to console me
If I don’t feel her warmest kisses
Then I will miss my island misses

She’s the reason why winter never comes
She even warms up the summer some
She’s my island girl with hula grace
She sets my heart awhirl with her face

Have you ever heard ukuleles ringing
She’s the reason why they play, I know
Have you ever heard an angel singing
Well, that’s her when she says Aloha, hello

This I can tell you, mister
She’s mine and she doesn’t have a sister
So, don’t bother comin’ round
She’s the sweetest island girl I’ve ever found

She’s a treat to daydream about
She can’t be beat, there’s just no doubt
She makes me want to sing and shout
She’s my island girl
She’s my island girl I can’t live without



Reminiscing Voyage (Larry W. Jones 05/01/2003) (song#1426)

We’re going on a reminiscing voyage
Where love is whispered on the breeze
We’re going on a reminiscing voyage
Hawaii is north just twenty degrees

I’ve got my guitar, don’t need no shoes
The islands aren’t far, ain’t got no blues
A voyage to paradise will be a ball
We got our tickets when we heard Hawaii call

Aloha tower, we’ll be there before eleven
A lei of flowers, we’ll wear them in island heaven
We’re going on a reminiscing voyage over the sea
Back to that little grass shack at Waikiki

Ever since we left, my heart has been in bondage
When we get there, my feet will no longer roam
We’re going on a reminiscing voyage
A reminiscing voyage to our island home




Forever From The Start (Larry W. Jones 05/01/2003) (song#1427)

Dreams like this don’t come just anytime
A love like yours is not just make believe
Dreams like this are meant for always
How I found your love is hard to conceive

Your love will be worth all endeavor
I will love you always, always and forever

Dreams like this is not just island madness
A love like yours is really true
Dreams like this will end all sadness
How I found your love, I wish I knew

It was love at first sight when we met
You played so sweetly on the strings of my heart
Dreams like this I could never forget
A love like yours is meant forever from the start

Your love will be worth all endeavor
I will love you always, always and forever

It was love at first sight when we met
You played so sweetly on the strings of my heart
Dreams like this I could never forget
A love like yours is meant forever from the start



Dreams On Maui Island (Larry W. Jones 05/02/2003) (song#1428)

I’m a sailor and a rover and a drifter in the stream
I’ve sailed around the world searching for a dream
And the only dream I ever felt was filled
Was when I lived on Maui, there my heart was thrilled

One day I’ll sail back to Maui, that I know
I’ll return to where soft breezes blow
I’ll sail back as a rich man, or beggar if I can
Anyway, I’m on my way, back to Maui sand

There I was raised on ohana love
Chasing empty dreams was wrong
Maui is the island I’m now dreaming of
I’m sailing back to my sweet Maui home

Across the oceans seven, I’ve roved and I’ve roamed
Now I’ll return to Heaven, my Maui island home
One day I’ll find an island girl there to fulfill
My dreams on Maui island, and my heart to thrill



Just A Little While (Larry W. Jones 05/02/2003) (song#1429)

My love for you will never end, no never
I could never say goodbye to your smile
When Aloha means goodbye, it’s not forever
It only means for a little while

For a little while, sweetheart, wait for me
For a little while, on our island in the sea
When Aloha will be hello, not goodbye
Please wait for me, my love, in paradise

I will dream of you while we’re apart
Your love will always be here in my heart
For a little while, sweetheart, wait for me
For a little while, on our island in the sea

Although I will be an ocean away from you
And maybe across a mountain or two
My love is one of deep emotion and true
Just a little while and I’ll be home with you

My love is one of deep emotion and true
Just a little while and I’ll be home with you



Not The Same (Larry W. Jones 05/02/2003) (song#1430)

I skipped the luau last Friday night
I know the tiki torches were burning bright
It wouldn’t be any fun without you
The island’s not the same when colored blue

I thought about strolling the beach at Waikiki
Got as far as Kalakaua avenue
But my friends would have been there, you see
The island’s not the same when colored blue

Sweetheart, I must confess
Nights are lonely in paradise
Been that way since you left, I guess
And my broken heart for you still cries

I met another girl the other day
But it’s not the same cause she’s not you
Don’t know if the sun will shine today
The island’s not the same when colored blue

Don’t know if the sun will shine today
The island’s not the same when colored blue



Starting To Believe In Love (Larry W. Jones 05/02/2003) (song#1431)

I never believed in paradise
Dreams just drifted somewhere above
But then you took me by surprise
I’m starting to believe in love

I thought true love was just a show
Like a hand that fits nicely in a glove
But with island guitars playing low
I’m starting to believe in love

I used to stroll through Ala Moana park
Laugh at couples kissing in the dark
Didn’t know what I was missing until you
Came and brought the bliss of love that’s true

I never believed in island love before
It was something I had just heard of
But now when I see you more and more
I’m starting to believe in love

I never believed in island love before
It was something I had just heard of
But now when I see you more and more
I’m starting to believe in love



Once Again (Larry W. Jones 05/02/2003) (song#1432)

Hold me close and kiss me once
Then don’t let go, and kiss me once again
When I’m in your arms, I’m in such bliss
So hold me close and kiss me once again

I didn’t know paradise felt like this
I didn’t know until I felt your kiss
It’s been so long, I don’t remember when
So hold me close and kiss me once again

Hold me close and kiss me once
And be the dream I’ve dreamed so much
And don’t let go until I tell you when
So hold me close and kiss me once again

I didn’t know paradise felt like this
I didn’t know until I felt your kiss
It’s been so long, I don’t remember when
So hold me close and kiss me once again

Hold me close and kiss me once
And be the dream I’ve dreamed so much
And don’t let go until I tell you when
So hold me close and kiss me once again
Hold me close and kiss me once again



Paradise And Leilani (Larry W. Jones 05/02/2003) (song#1433)

Leilani is the girl in the early morning mist
Her smile is the pearl in the jewelry store
Her lips are the island sun, so warm with bliss
And your dream is her love that you’re searching for

Leilani is the girl in the dancing dress
Swaying to a hula romancing caress
She thrills you like your first puppy love
But Leilani is the girl your arms are empty of

The dream that you can’t quite place, it must be
Leilani, strolling in the sand there by the sea
Polynesian eyes that you’ve always seen
Though paradise and Leilani are but a dream

The dream that you can’t quite place, it must be
Leilani, strolling in the sand there by the sea
Polynesian eyes that you’ve always seen
Though paradise and Leilani are but a dream



Gallant Falls Of Clyde (Larry W. Jones 05/03/2003) (song#1434)

Do you see those sails full and spread out wide
I expect that it must be the Falls Of Clyde
She’s the gallant ship that is the mainstay
Of the sugar trade from Hawaii to the Frisco bay

When we’re all aboard, captain Matson will call
Call for anchors aweigh before the coming squall
We’ll fly before the wind and make our getaway
Aboard the Falls Of Clyde to the Frisco bay

Here in Hawaii where we have a lot of sun
We grow the sugar cane that helps to make the rum
We ship it by the ton from Hawaii every day
On gallant ships like Falls Of Clyde to the Frisco bay

Now the sails are trimmed and we’re right on time
Sailing from Hawaii to the coast on the Matson line
It’s a bonnie ride that I will remember many a day
Aboard the gallant Falls Of Clyde to the Frisco bay



Paralevel To The Road (Larry W. Jones 05/03/2003) (song#1435)

Grab your parasol and come with me
I will show you all you need to see
Sunny island life only has one code
Just keep your feet paralevel to the road

Don’t worry about things that don’t matter
Step up to the plate and be the batter
Let the island state relieve your load
Just keep your feet paralevel to the road

I used to live in a daze, life was such a maze
But now I sing the praises of how peaceful island days is

Put on your shades and open wide your eyes
Island life is sun and fun in deep blue skies
Paradise is good as ice cream a la mode
Just keep your feet paralevel to the road



Sunny Island Morning (Larry W. Jones 05/03/2003) (song#1436)

Some sunny island morning, here by the sea
Some sunny island morning, for my love and me
Guitars will play soft Maui chimes, island melody
Some sunny island morning, for my love and me

We’ll listen as the vows are read
Repeating every word
There’ll be lots of happy tears then shed
When heartfelt Aloha love is heard

Some sunny island morning, here on the isle
No need to be nervous, just look at her and smile
Life will be as sweet as island tuberoses
Since she said yes to my proposes, my love and me

We’ll listen as the vows are read
Repeating every word
There’ll be lots of happy tears then shed
When heartfelt Aloha love is heard

Some sunny island morning, here by the sea
Some sunny island morning, for my love and me
Guitars will play soft Maui chimes, island melody
Some sunny island morning, for my love and me



This Is The Day (Larry W. Jones 05/03/2003) (song#1437)

Wake up, my love, this is the day
Our anniversary is just a kiss away
She smiled at me and it was plain to see
Our memories were dreams of Hawaii

We had met on a black sand beach
We let Aloha command our love for each
If there was ever love at first sight
It was ours in song and verse that night

We talked and dined and fell in love
Under tropic moon and stars above
That was yesterday so many years ago
And to this day our love is still aglow

Wake up, my love, this is the day
We’ll renew our love like a flower lei
Bright as sunshine on Hanalei bay
This is the day for love in Hawaii nei

We’ll renew our love like a flower lei
This is the day for love in Hawaii nei



To A Love That’s True (Larry W. Jones 05/03/2003) (song#1438)

Until eternity, long as there are islands in the sea
Long as Aloha means love and honesty
I will share my love with you

Until eternity, long as flowers grow for garland leis
Long as rainbows shine over Hanalei
I will share my life with you

Until the islands in the stream cease to be for dreams
Long as tropic moons keep sending golden beams
My love will follow you

May our love always agree with the things that hold the key
To happiness here on our island in the sea
And to a love that’s true

Until the islands in the stream cease to be for dreams
Long as tropic moons keep sending golden beams
My love will follow you

May our love always agree with the things that hold the key
To happiness here on our island in the sea
And to a love that’s true




South Pacific Island Time (Larry W. Jones 05/03/2003) (song#1439)

Full moon shining on the bay below
Lovers dining in the cafe’s afterglow
Everything about it will steal the show
It’s south pacific island time

Tradewinds blowing through the swaying trees
Love is flowing on the tropic breeze
Island time is such a life of ease
It’s south pacific island time

Sailboats in the moonlight, crusing along
Stars are shining bright, up where they belong
Listen to the steel guitars as they gaily play
And watch the lovers as they dance the night away

Dear old Tahiti, with it’s dreamy island songs
How I yearn to return to her sometime
Underneath those southern skies is where I belong
In that south pacific island time

Dear old Tahiti, with it’s dreamy island songs
How I yearn to return to her sometime
Underneath those southern skies is where I belong
In that south pacific island time



A Page And A Line (Larry W. Jones 05/03/2003) (song#1340)

You must be a page from a dream
Perfection has come of age, so it seems
Are there really arms like yours
Are there really charms like yours
Are there really smiles like yours to esteem

You must be a line from a song
A song with a theme of island love to impart
I want to keep you to myself, where you belong
Out of a dream and a song and into my heart

A page from a dream, a line from a song
Perfection has come of age and brought you along to me

You must be a line from a song
A song with a theme of island love to impart
I want to keep you to myself, where you belong
Out of a dream and a song and into my heart



Golden Moon Over Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 05/04/2003) (song#1341)

A million stars in all their glory
A golden moon over Hawaii
A million reasons for a lover’s story
That soon will explain my love for you

A million guitar songs to serenade
A golden memory that will never fade
A million ways to say Aloha, I love you
A golden dream in Hawaii blue

A million flowers to make a lei
A golden hour, a night, a day
A fragrant flower for your lovely hair
A million ways to show I care

There’s so many ways to say I love you
That I lose track of time
There’s so many times that I’m thinking of you
That I have a one track mind

A million stars in all their glory
A golden moon over Hawaii
A million reasons for a lover’s story
That soon will explain my love for you



Hawaiian Midnight Moon (Larry W. Jones 05/04/2003) (song#1342)

Hawaiian midnight moon
In velvet skies above
You have the glory that will soon
Bring me a dream to love

Hawaiian midnight moon
On you my thanks confer
You shine the light that soon
Will bring a kiss from her

The time has come when we’ll be strolling by the sea
Where waves of love will come for her and me
We’re starting a love that will go on endlessly
Under that Hawaiian midnight moon

Hawaiian midnight moon
In velvet skies above
You have the glory that will soon
Bring me a dream to love
Hawaiian midnight moon



A Moon Out Tonight (Larry W. Jones 05/04/2003) (song#1343)

There’s a moon out tonight
That will soon bring to sight
That girl with the polynesian eyes

There are stars up above
That know she’s the one I love
That polynesian girl from paradise

She knows I’m in love, and I thank the stars above
As well as the moon that’s on the rise
Yes, it’s her I’m thinking of, she’s my only love
My polynesian girl from paradise

There’s a flower in her hair
I placed it there with care
It’s as fragrant as the love that’s in the air

There’s a kiss I’m waiting for
From my island miss down by the shore
She’s the polynesian girl that I adore

She knows I’m in love, and I thank the stars above
As well as the moon that’s on the rise
Yes, it’s her I’m thinking of, she’s my only love
My polynesian girl from paradise



Missin’, Kissin’ Girl (Larry W. Jones 05/04/2003) (song#1444)

Hawaii, I’m a-comin’
Back to where I’m comin’ fromin’
Where flowers make the leis
And sold in fragrant flower trays

They’re bloomin’ in the spring
And lovers croonin’ they will bring
Every mornin’ at the dawnin’
And every night when love is king

Birds are singin’ in the trees
Love is wingin’ on the breeze
That’s why I just can’t wait
To return to my Aloha state

An island miss who’s tall ‘n tan
Said she’s missin’ her island man
Hawaii, I’m a-comin’
Back to where I’m comin’ fromin’
To my missin’, kissin’ girl in paradise

Hawaii, I’m a-comin’
Back to where I’m comin’ fromin’
To my missin’, kissin’ girl in paradise



My Sentimental Heart (Larry W. Jones 05/04/2003) (song#1445)

This love I have for you
May be for sentimental reasons
And I know that it’s true
Island love is for all seasons
It’s the season for my sentimental heart

This love I have for you
May last a full eternity
And I know that it’s true
Your island love was meant for me
My heart will play it’s sentimental part

I dream about you in the morning
When the island sun is dawning
And, darling, I’m not surprised at night
That you’re my paradise delight

This love I have for you
May be for sentimental reasons
Every season will impart to you
Love from my sentimental heart



Tough To Know Enough (Larry W. Jones 05/04/2003) (song#1446)

I barely know enough, about a lot of stuff
And it’s tough to know enough of you
You’re like a lot of wine
That the label forgot to define
Sweetheart, I swear it’s true

Sometimes I sing the blues, totally confused
I can’t get used to knowing you
You’re that girl from paradise
I can see it in your eyes
Sweetheart, what am I to do

Girl in the hula skirt, island flirt
Now isn’t that a disgrace
But for you I’ll wear my island shirt
And I know you have an angel’s face

You went to Kamehameha schools, broke the rules
Every boy was crazy about you
I barely know enough, about a lot of stuff
And it’s tough to know enough of you

I know about this island love, guilty of
A lot of stuff, it’s true
And it’s you I’m thinking of, I’m in love
But it’s tough to know enough of you



Such An Easy Thing (Larry W. Jones 05/04/2003) (song#1447)

Some love is easy, it comes fast
Some love is hard, it won’t last
Island love is easy and it will last
No need to be uneasy
Island love will easily surpass

Some love is what you make it
Some lovers just want to take it
Island love is what you give it
With Aloha you can live it
Island love is true if you commit

I fell in love with you
It was such an easy thing to do
And my true love is not a game
I only want to change your name

Island love is easy and it will last
No need to be uneasy
Island love will easily surpass

Island love is what you give it
With Aloha you can live it
Island love is true if you commit

I fell in love with you
It was such an easy thing to do
And my true love is not a game
I only want to change your name

I fell in love with you
It was such an easy thing to do



Make Our Dreams Come True (Larry W. Jones 05/04/2003) (song#1448)

Just think of you in my arms
And I’ll think of all your charms
Under a tropic yellow moon, island tunes
And make our dreams come true

Just think of you in a dress
A tropical wedding dress, I guess
With flower leis of every hue
And make our dreams come true

A honeymoon in Hawaii, by the peaceful sea
Then we’ll fly off to the stars
And listen to island steel guitars
A crazy little dream for you and me

Just think of us on our tenth anniversary
A cottage full of kids, one in the nusery
We’ll make some to look like me, some like you
And make our dreams come true

Just think of you in my arms
And I’ll think of all your charms
Under a tropic yellow moon, island tunes
And make our dreams come true



Can’t Be Half In Love (Larry W. Jones 05/04/2003) (song#1449)

At the luau I was dancing, a new girl romancing
Strolling in the moonlight too
I was dancing on the outside, dying on the inside
Dying cause my heart is dancing still with you

Friends see me in the daytime, smiling bravely sometimes
I even try to play it cool
I’m smiling on the outside, crying on the inside
Crying cause my heart isn’t smiling too

They don’t know it’s just a game
If they did, I’d die from shame
And it’s a shame that I’m to blame
For my losing you

Sweetheart, can we try again, how long has it been
My heart is broken half in two
Half of me is smiling, all of me is crying
I can’t be just half in love with you



Early Island Days (Larry W. Jones 05/04/2003) (song#1450)

I used to do as I pleased, free as the tropic breeze
I would smile all the while, with youthful island style
My fun was the island sun and loving Aloha ways
Back in my early island days

Under every banyan, I found a true companion
There were no fears in simple island ways
Everyone was a brother, father, sister, mother
Back in my early island days

The years have come and tears have too
Most of the dreams have vanished in the blue
Now this young girl has her mother’s eyes
She reminds me of our early days in paradise

Oh, my daughter island child
Enjoy to the full your island ways
Then you will remember when you smiled
Back in your early island days
Back in your early island days



Play The Ukulele Low (Larry W. Jones 05/05/2003) (song#1451)

Way out in Honolulu bay
He threw to her a flower lei
He sailed away from paradise
And I heard him say

Play the ukulele low
Don’t know when I’ll come back, you know
Play the ukulele low
My love, I hate to leave you so

I’ll dream of you there on the shore
There where the tradewinds softly blow
Save all your love for me, I implore
Play the ukulele low

Out by the Honolulu bay
At the close of each lonely day
She still goes down there to pray
That some day he won’t have to say

Play the ukulele low
Don’t know when I’ll come back, you know
Play the ukulele low
My love, I hate to leave you so



Sleepy Streams Of Water (Larry W. Jones 05/05/2003) (song#1452)

Like sleepy streams are your enchanting eyes, dear
Reflecting dreams of paradise
And like a flower thirsting by it’s banks so near
My heart, a shower of your love does prize

Oh, grant this heart of mine to share your tender sighs
Let me drink of your sweet love and dreams
The fragrant flower in your hair, so easy on the eye
Reminds me of love and soft moonbeams

Kisses that are old still haunt my very soul
Why have you gone and left me lonely
Will I your eyes behold, or shall I forever want you only
Without your love my heart can’t be consoled

Like sleepy streams are your enchanting eyes, dear
Reflecting dreams of paradise
From over oceans, deep emotions call so near
For you, like sleepy streams of water are my cries



Wicky Wacky Island Love (Larry W. Jones 05/05/2003) (song#1453)

Island love is here for all to see
Feel your heart go pitter, pitter, patter
It’s on the wind that blows the trees
Listen to it chitter, chitter, chatter

Love, oh love, don’t go away
We need island love every day
Sing a song of island love under stars above
Send a lot of island love our way

By the shore where breakers roar
You can see them strolling, strolling
Down the beach you see some more
Island boys and girls trolling, trolling

Light the tiki torches by the sea
Down at wicky, wacky, Waikiki
Sun and sand, island girl and island man
Send a lot of island love our way



Under A Million Moons (Larry W. Jones 05/09/2003) (song#1454)

It was only a weekend dance
That’s all it was, you see
But, it was more than just romance
It was you and love in Waikiki

It was like a big luau feast
Complete with kalua, rice and poi
It was there that love was released
When you said I could be your island boy

It was only an outrigger canoe ride
That’s all it was that time
But it was a bigger event that grew inside
Here in my heart, sweet as Maui chimes

It was like an ocean voyage
Complete with emotions I coudn’t hide
The longer we paddled, I enjoyed
The feelings of love on the evening tide

And when I held you in my arms
Your fragrant lei smelled sweet as wine
My heart just fell for all your charms
And I could tell that you were mine

The wedding on the shore was held in June
It was just a small affair
But to me it was under a million moons
And the heavens and the stars and you were there



Old Polynesian Sky (Larry W. Jones 05/09/2003) (song#1455)

Old polynesian celestial sky
Soft as velvet there tonight
I’m keeping you in my eye
To see if you’ll do what’s right

Old polynesian celestial sky
I’m looking at you above
I’m hoping for your magic to apply
To the island girl I love

I’m gonna ask her the age old question
Even though to me it’s new
And I want her love in my possession
Old polynesian sky, it depends on you

Old polynesian celestial sky
Hang a full moon over Waikiki
Be there for me in paradise
Old polynesian sky, you hold the key

Old polynesian celestial sky
Hang a full moon over Waikiki
Be there for me in paradise
Old polynesian sky, you hold the key



Captive Of Your Memory (Larry W. Jones 05/09/2003) (song#1456)

I stroll along the island sand at night
Wondering why you’re out of sight
Remembering love that seemed so right
I’m just a captive of your memory

For your memory I often pine now
Your lips are still like sweetest wine now
For losing your love I’m resigned now
I’m just a captive of your memory

I know it’s no good to keep on caring
When it’s someone else your love you’re sharing
This broken heart needs repairing
So, I’ll just keep you in my memory

You’re in my dreams when I’m awake
And these lonely nights are hard to take
I know it’s just a big mistake, but
I’m just a captive of your memory

You’re in my dreams when I’m awake
And these lonely nights are hard to take
I know it’s just a big mistake, but
I’m just a captive of your memory



A Trip Through Paradise (Larry W. Jones 05/09/2003) (song#1457)

If you plan a trip through paradise
Let this island man give you advice
Dreams come true in Hawaii blue

Paradise is not just a state of mind
You can live it here on island time
Dreams come true in Hawaii blue

Ohana love starts in Ni’ihau, anyhow
And Kaua’i isle is always in garden style
The Moloka’i cowboy is riding in the wind
And Maui chimes are soft as violins
O’ahu is the gathering place
Lana’i raises pineapples by the case
Kaho’olawe doesn’t take much space
And the big island will slow your pace

So, let this island man give you advice
If you plan a trip through paradise
Paradise is not just a state of mind
You can live it here on island time
Dreams come true in Hawaii blue
Dreams come true in Hawaii blue
Dreams come true in Hawaii blue



I’ll Remember You (Larry W. Jones 05/09/2003) (song#1458)

That canoe ride through the lagoon, that tropic moon
The luau dance where we found romance
And all those island songs we knew
For those dreams that did come true, I’ll remember you

Waikiki sure was fun, playing in the sun
Remember those Maui chimes, the best of times
And hiking to the top of Diamond Head, faces red
For those dreams that did come true, I’ll remember you

Strolling in the island sand, sure was grand
Just me and you at Honolulu zoo
We didn’t know that soon would come that monsoon
We were both in love, we two

Where was it that we strayed, let love fade
How could a love like ours waste such precious hours
I’ll remember you my whole life through
For those dreams that did come true, I’ll remember you



Island Hula Girl (Larry W. Jones 05/10/2003) (song#1459)

Dance, island hula girl, dance
Smile and the crowd will praise you in your part
Dance, island hula girl, dance
And do your unspoken sway to my broken heart

Sway, island hula girl, sway
Do your unspoken dance of love there by the bay
Sway, island hula girl, sway
Don’t think about the guy who gave you the flower lei

When you said Aloha, I thought it was from your heart
You should have been a geisha
Instead of just playing from the start

Now, love has flown, island hula girl, flown
So, from now on, all you have is your hula girl dance
It can’t bring you true romance, like me
So, hula girl, take your chance there by the sea
And dance, island hula girl, dance, dance, dance



Little Grass Shack For Sale (Larry W. Jones 05/10/2003) (song#1460)

Our little grass shack down by the sea
Seems to be looking back at me
Wondering why its shades are drawn
Wondering why I’m all alone
Wondering why the mailman brings no mail
And why is there a little sign that wails
Little grass shack for sale

It’s still there down by the bay
But the birds of paradise have flown away
It looks like it has seen better days
Why do the windows look like covered veils
And why is there a little sign that wails
Little grass shack for sale

On the island breeze, I still hear your voice
But our little grass shack sees nothing to rejoice

The old latch on the gate is broken now
I guess it really doesn’t matter anyhow
What happened to the promises and those vows
Why did everlasting love have to fail
And why is there a little sign that wails
Little grass shack for sale



Sunny Island Day (Larry W. Jones 05/10/2003) (song#1461)

It’s a sunny island day for strollin’ along
It’s a sunny island day for singin’ a song
And it’s a fine day all day long
Cause any day is a fine day when you’re along with me

It’s a sunny island day for takin’ a snooze
It’s a sunny island day for shakin’ the blues
And it’s a fine day to be happy as you can be
Cause any day is a fine day when you’re along with me

I said to myself, good mornin’ self
Don’t leave your heart sittin’ on the shelf
I reminded mister sun that the day’s begun
And I’ll be with my island girl til the day is done

It’s a sunny island day for strollin’ along
It’s a sunny island day for singin’ a song
And it’s a fine day all day long
Cause any day is a fine day when you’re along with me

It’s a sunny island day for takin’ a snooze
It’s a sunny island day for shakin’ the blues
And it’s a fine day to be happy as you can be
Cause any day is a fine day when you’re along with me



The Hour Has Come (Larry W. Jones 05/10/2003) (song#1462)

The hour has come to say Aloha, goodbye
I have to leave to sail the boundless sea
But while I’m away, please don’t you cry
I’ll be back this way, so, wait for me, my love

The evening tide is creeping slow
The night will bring the full moon’s glow
Birds of paradise are in their nests
I will hold your love deep in my breast

The evening tide is creeping slow and I must go
I can’t hide these tears inside, I wish Aloha meant hello

The hour has come to say Aloha, goodbye
I have to leave to sail the boundless sea
But while I’m away, please don’t you cry
I’ll be back this way, so, wait for me, my love



Music Of Island Love (Larry W. Jones 05/10/2003) (song#1463)

I hear steel guitars when I think of you
And I feel the stars even say it’s true
That in my heart I love you night and day
I hear music of love that never fades away

I feel music in the island sand
I feel music when I touch your hand
An island melody of love’s command
Like a symphony, a soft guitar band

Is it me alone who hears this lovely song
Is it me alone with a heart of love this strong
I hear it deep inside, inside of me
This is not just the music of love on the island breeze

Do you ever hear steel guitars when there are none
Do you feel love when you stroll barefoot in the sun
Do you hear the music that I do
This music of island love is you



Sunday Manoa Love (Larry W. Jones 05/10/2003) (song#1464)

I want a Sunday Manoa kind of love
One that will shine like the stars above
One that I know of at first sight
I want a Sunday Manoa kind of love

I want a love that’s more than just island sand
That can slip right through an island hand
I want a dream sent from up above
I want a Sunday Manoa kind of love

I’m always dreamin’ on Sunday
Always schemin’ against a Monday
Tryin’ to uncover an island lover
To bring an island dream my way

I want some arms to hold me
Someone with lots of charms to mold me
Someone to coo just like a dove
I want a Sunday Manoa kind of love

Someone with lots of charms to mold me
Someone to coo just like a dove
I want a Sunday Manoa kind of love



Moon Above (Larry W. Jones 05/10/2003) (song#1465)

Moon above
Oh, tropical moon made for love
Here I stand alone on the shore
With no girl of my own to adore

Moon above
I beg you to shine
On the one who’s divine
On the girl I need as mine

The man in the moon must have heard
Heard my wishes for the one I was fond of
The only girl for whom my heart preferred
For now the moon above was shining on my love

Moon above
Oh, tropical moon made for love
Keep shining there for me, endlessly
And fill her heart with my endless love



Lehua Love (Larry W. Jones 05/10/2003) (song#1466)

There’s a story told on the tradewind air
That when a girl wears a lehua blossom in her hair
She’s the answer to your prayer

A love story of the islands’ enchanting power
When your girl wears the fragrant lehua flower
It will empower love so true

Under the golden summer moon
The lehua is beyond compare
And soon you will find your true love there
When lehua love is whispered on the tradewind air

So, be my lehua love, be my island story told
Wear this lehua blossom in your hair
Be my lehua love to hold




Lonely Harbor Light (Larry W. Jones 05/10/2003) (song#1467)

Here under the lonely harbor light
My heart seems so alone in the night
As I look past the reef, I see no relief
Since the day that you sailed out of sight

I stand alone under the lonely harbor light
Gazing out to sea
Will my future shine as bright
Will my love come back to me

Here I am, waiting patiently
Like an exam, I question constantly
Where is my love. Did she forget.
Will I see her yet, or will I only know regret
When will my love return to me

Here under the lonely harbor light
As I look past the reef, I see no relief
My heart is broken tonight
For my love is out of sight



Island Mysteries (Larry W. Jones 05/10/2003) (song#1468)

You smile, and I hear island guitar strings
You speak to me, and what music the island brings
It must be your open charms

The moon above always rises just in time
It speaks of love and supplies a beam to climb
All the way to heaven in your open arms

When we stroll together in the sand
Your gentle hand fits perfectly in mine
I can’t explain, but I understand
The magic of our love was heavenly designed

How else can I explain, when there is no rain
A rainbow in the sky when the ground beneath is dry
The islands are full of mysteries, it’s true
But there’s no mystery as to why
Why I’m in love with you



Because You’re Here (Larry W. Jones 05/10/2003) (song#1469)

The moon was up there doing it’s thing
And the stars were down here in your eyes
That night when you made my heart sing
Just by saying Aloha here in paradise

The tradewinds seem to always know
Just when to whisper love so low
I know because they told me so
And because you’re here tonight

When true love comes, there’s no pretending
That it really isn’t there
You just succumb to love that has no ending
Whispered on the tradewind air

The moon was up there doing it’s thing
That night when you made my heart sing
The tradewinds seem to always know
Just when to whisper love so low

I know because they told me so
And because you’re here tonight



Strollin’ Tonight (Larry W. Jones 05/10/2003) (song#1470)

I’ll be strollin’ tonight with my island baby
Nothin’s gonna go wrong, cause everything feels so right
It’s like a hit song, I don’t mean just maybe
I’ll be strollin’ with my island baby tonight

Strollin’, everything is rollin’ right
Nothin’s gonna go bad, cause I’m feelin’ so glad
I won’t be sad, I don’t mean maybe
I’ll be strollin’ with my island baby tonight

We’re goin’ down to Waikiki, see what we can see
We’ll be dancin’ to a guitar band, man oh man, life is grand

I’ll be strollin’ tonight with my island baby
Nothin’s gonna go wrong, cause everything feels so right
Some day soon, she’ll say yes, I know it won’t be maybe
And under that moon, that day might come tonight



On The Tropic Island (Larry W. Jones 05/10/2003) (song#1471)

On the tropic island by the old sugar mill
The tropical island where your dreams fulfill
Stroll in the shade of the banyan tree
Let your worries fade and stroll along with me

On the tropic island, sing an island song
Every day is a good day to just stroll along
Hawaii has the skies of blue, every day is new
On the tropic island where dreams come true

On the tropic island by the old sugar mill
The tropical island where your dreams fulfill
Stroll in the shade of the banyan tree
Let your worries fade and stroll along with me

On the tropic island, on the tropic island
On the tropic island, stroll along with me



Kauai, Garden Island (Larry W. Jones 05/11/2003) (song#1472)

Kauai, garden island
Oh, how I miss your gentle bays
I miss your ohana and gentle island ways
Your fragrant flower leis

Kauai, garden island
Dreamy visions in my mind
Oh, such memories since I went away
Many dreams have brought me back
To your lovely bay at Hanalei

Many are the times I’ve wondered
Why it was I ever went away
Kauai, garden island
One day I’ll return, never more to wander
From your lovely shores and skies of blue

Kauai, garden island
Where all my dreams come true



A Song Of My Leilani (Larry W. Jones 05/11/2003) (song#1473)

As I stroll along the balmy, sunny shore
I thing again of the girl that I adore
I love her, it’s true, in my heart, I do
Always, I will love you, my Leilani

Now the twilight comes, the day is done
The last rays of the setting sun
Are dancing on the waves just for fun
And I dream of dancing with you, my Leilani

The early stars all glimmer from above
Soon, the moon will shimmer beams of love
In my ear I hear a bonnie island tune
A song of my Leilani underneath an island moon

Gentle waves come to kiss the island sand
Love is everywhere in this Aloha land
The palm trees wave their fronds in the breeze
As if to show that she’s in love with me
And she knows that I’m so pleased, my Leilani



My Sweet Island Rose (Larry W. Jones 05/11/2003) (song#1474)

On the garden isle across the blue
There’s a dream I’m dreaming of
And it seems so very true
About the island girl I love

It’s not the sandy shore
Nor the swaying trees
Although it calls to me once more
It’s not the tradewind breeze

It’s just my sweet island rose
In her sweet island pose
And for me, she grows
In Kauai

It isn’t Hanalei
With its gorgeous bay
Or the exotic fern grotto
Or the luau hula show

It’s just my sweet island rose
In her sweet island pose
And for me, she grows
In Kauai

Over all the garden isle
She’s known for her winning smile
She does it all with style
And for her love I’d stroll a mile

I’ll be there this coming June
And it’s not just the moon I’ll enjoy
Not just a sweet island tune
For this island boy

It’s just my sweet island rose
In her sweet island pose
And for me, she grows
In Kauai



Dream Of Tropic Isles (Larry W. Jones 05/11/2003) (song#1475)

Climb upon a moonbeam and watch it turn to gold
It’s time to have a dream and watch as love unfolds
Let your cares disappear for just a little while
Just climb upon a moonbeam in a dream of tropic isles

Fly a kite and you just might ride upon the wind
Trade it for a breeze and see if you can dream again
A tradewind breeze is there to please a troubled mind
Just ride upon the wind and be as free as Maui chimes

Dream about an island somewhere in the blue
Don’t ever doubt that dreams will all come true
Bring your love along and if you don’t have one
Just dream about an island somewhere in the sun

Catch yourself a falling star and put it in a jar
Makes no difference where you are, here or Mayanmar
Make a wish and it might dish up island steel guitars
Just catch yourself a falling star no matter where you are

Dream about an island somewhere in the blue
Don’t ever doubt that dreams will all come true
Bring your love along and if you don’t have one
Just dream about an island somewhere in the sun

Climb upon a moonbeam and watch it turn to gold
It’s time to have a dream and watch as love unfolds
Let your cares disappear for just a little while
Just climb upon a moonbeam in a dream of tropic isles



Through A Lifetime Again (Larry W. Jones 05/11/2003) (song#1476)

Always, always and forever again
Time, and time through a lifetime again
This is our moment in time
Let’s make it last a lifetime divine

More, more than ever before
I’ve dreamed of this time on a paradise shore
What a thrill, what a hill we have climbed
Let’s make it last a lifetime this time

Mine, you are mine to hold
Words,words of love untold
I’ve waited a lifetime it seems
For this moment, for you, for dreams

When, when this dream disappears
When it all comes to tears
I know that I will always
Always and forever again
Dream of this moment in time
Through a lifetime again



Sweetest Rose That Grows (Larry W. Jones 05/11/2003) (song#1477)

You are the tuberose of the islands
The sweetest rose that grows in the sun
You are the songs they sing when sunset brings
The twilight, and guitar strings of love

You are the dream that lights the golden beam
Of the tropic moon in the month of June
You are the fragrant part of the blossom’s heart
Made into this flower lei I give to you today

Time is translating into dreams worth all endeavor
Someday my waiting arms will hold your charms forever

You are the tuberose of the islands
The sweetest rose that grows in the sun
You are the songs they sing when sunset brings
The twilight, and guitar strings of love



Maika ‘i No (Larry W. Jones 05/12/2003) (song#1478)

Maika ‘i no, lovers say that in Hawaii
When they sing of Cheryl Moana Marie
Which means that it is very fine
Our island love, Maika ‘i no
It is very fine that you are mine

Maika ‘i no, is what I whisper to you
Just like the kanaka e maile ‘ole will do
I may be a bachelor, but this lovely match is for
Me to say Maika ‘i no, it is very fine
Very fine that you are mine

Every love word in Hawaiian has more than one meaning
And every word means that I love you in every way

Maika ‘i no, lovers say that in Hawaii
When they sing of Cheryl Moana Marie
Which means that it is very fine
Our island love, Maika ‘i no
It is very fine that you are mine

It is very fine, the love that you show
No one else has such charms as you, that I know
When the moon shines above, on our love here below
I will whisper to you
Maika ‘i no



On A Sunny Afternoon (Larry W. Jones 05/12/2003) (song#1479)

Strolling down the avenue, Kalakaua avenue, on a sunny afternoon
Holding hands with you, feeling love that’s true, singing island tunes
Steel guitars wafting out a melody, calling for the tropic moon
Strolling down the avenue, Kalakaua avenue, on a sunny afternoon

Birds of paradise all fly along in the tradewind breeze
They heard that it’s so nice that you’re in love with me

We’ll stroll along together, plan our island honeymoon
Strolling down the avenue, Kalakaua avenue, on a sunny afternoon
Holding hands with you, feeling love that’s true, singing island tunes
Strolling down the avenue, Kalakaua avenue, on a sunny afternoon



Any Way That’s Far Away (Larry W. Jones 05/12/2003) (song#1480)

Am I a dreamer, I guess that I am
I want to catch a steamer to Bombay or Siam
Any way that’s far away is alright with me
As long as there’s trees that sway in a tropic breeze

Any way that’s far away with kinda funny names
Tahiti Iti or Bora Bora, to me they’re all the same
That’s where paradise is, maybe poi and rice is too
Any way that’s far away where dreams are coming true

I start getting itchy, my feet are kinda twitchy
Every time I read those travelogs from off the shelf
I might not have the riches, comes from diggin’ ditches
But some day I’ll be switchin’ gears, to see for myself

Am I a dreamer, I guess that I am
I want to catch a steamer to Bombay or Siam
Any way that’s far away is alright with me
As long as there’s trees that sway in a tropic breeze
Any way that’s far away is alright with me



Molokai Cowboy’s Ride (Larry W. Jones 05/12/2003) (song#1481)

An old Hawaiian cowboy rode out from Maui isle one day
He gazed across the Pailolo channel toward Molokai on his way
It was then he saw another cowboy, and prayed he hadn’t sinned
Cause what he saw was, the Molokai cowboy ridin’ in the wind

Yip-pie-ya-aye, yip-pie-yi-o, Molokai cowboy, ridin’ in the wind

The herd was from the Parker Ranch, stampeding through the skies
Longhorns had broken down the fence and now were loose in paradise
He shivered in his saddle as the Molokai cowboy looked and grinned
And he knew he’d seen his fate if he didn’t try his ways to mend

Yip-pie-ya-aye, yip-pie-yi-o, Molokai cowboy, ridin’ in the wind

His cry was loud, his voice was slurred
He rode the wind just like a bird
He spurred his horse to catch that Parker herd
But those longhorn cows ain’t heard a word
He’s got to ride forever through the skies of paradise
And the time he’ll spend, is hard to comprehend

Yip-pie-ya-aye, yip-pie-yi-o, Molokai cowboy, ridin’ in the wind

As the Molokai cowboy rode on by, the wind like hell did blow
And he called out another cowboy’s name, Danny Estocado
The cowboy from Maui knew he had some ways to mend
Or he would be forever with the Molokai cowboy, ridin’ in the wind

Yip-pie-ya-aye, yip-pie-yi-o, Molokai cowboy, ridin’ in the wind

Molokai cowboy, ridin’ in the wind



On A China Clipper (Larry W. Jones 05/12/2003) (song#1482)

I can hear, even though you’re never near
When the tradewinds whisper
That one day you’ll belong to me

Until then, I’ll just pretend
That I’m on a China clipper
Bringing you back home with me

I’ve always heard that dreams are sweet as wine
May be absurd, but it already seems that you are mine

Oh, I’m aware that from the start
I may have to wear a broken heart
But it already needs repair

Even though we may be oceans apart
Deep emotions are beginning to start
When I begin to dream of you again

I can hear, even though you’re never near
When the tradewinds whisper
That one day you’ll belong to me

Until then, I’ll just pretend
That I’m on a China clipper
Bringing you back home with me

On a China clipper
Bringing you back home with me



Lonesome In Paradise (Larry W. Jones 05/12/2003) (song#1483)

See that broken sugar mill
I stop and wonder why
Why is love so broken still
I’m lonesome here in paradise

I’ve seen both sides of the tropic moon
The gold and the darkest skies
The man in the moon just cries out loud
I’m lonesome here in paradise

Beyond the reef is the cold, dark deep
Where men have sailed and died
My heart is there to fold and weep
I’m lonesome here in paradise

Tonight I wish upon a star
Though love is gone now from you eyes
I still love you even from afar
I’m lonesome here in paradise



No Room For The Garlands (Larry W. Jones 05/12/2003) (song#1484)

I could give you a garland lei
For all those times you made me blue
But you don’t have room for the garlands

I could give you a garland lei
For every way my heart was made to pay
But you don’t have room for the garlands

And just as you took the flowers and cast them all aside
It would take a book of hours to record the times I cried

But if your love should ever turn to true
And if you want to give me a garland too
All I want is the love that we once knew
My heart still has room for you

And if you want to give me a garland too
All I want is the love that we once knew
My heart still has room for you



My Moana Marie (Larry W. Jones 05/12/2003) (song#1485)

All the island songs that love of music brings
Through the whole year long, as new as endless spring
The story books of island lore
Of lovers strolling hand in hand down by the shore

It’s all a soft symphonic tune
It’s me and Moana underneath the moon
And me and my heart seems to agree
Everything that island love should be
Is my Moana Marie

It’s all a soft symphonic tune
It’s me and Moana underneath the moon
And me and my heart seems to agree
Everything that island love should be
Is my Moana Marie

Everything that island love should be
Is my Moana Marie



Me And My Koa Guitar (Larry W. Jones 05/12/2003) (song#1486)

Up in the evenin’, grab my koa guitar
I’ll be singin’ island songs that I write
Under the moon and the tropic stars
That shine from the heavens all night

A kiss for my love, and I jump in my car
Gigs in Waikiki where tiki torches shine bright
Under the moon and the tropic stars
That shine from the heavens all night

Third rate shows, nobody knows how it is
Some think it’s nice, but I pay the price
Playin’ all night in this island song biz
It’s just the price you pay for paradise

Now, get me to bed, me and my koa guitar
Up in the evenin’, while it’s still light
Sing under the moon and the tropic stars
That shine from the heavens all night



One Of My Dreams (Larry W. Jones 05/15/2003) (song#1487)

I have often dreamed of a wish
When I was soundly sleeping
And I have wished for a dream that my heart made
That I could be keeping

Most of the time I only found heartaches
Instead of dreams keeping
Most of the time, the wishes that I made
Would end up in weeping

But I had faith in my dreams
That one would come true some day
Some day I would see that rainbow
Come my way, come what may

Now my heart no longer is grieving
One of my wishes has come true
Now my dream is one for believing
Since one of my dreams brought me you

Now my heart no longer is grieving
One of my wishes has come true
Now my dream is one for believing
Since one of my dreams brought me you



So Lovely And Brown (Larry W. Jones 05/15/2003) (song#1488)

I found a new island love in an old Maui town
One beautiful day
She lived in a cottage of old Lahaina town
Down by the bay

I left my new island love in an old Maui town
Where tradewinds play
I left my new island love in old Lahaina town
And I sailed away

Now I dream of her in old Lahaina town
And I rue the day
That I sailed away from an old Maui town
To this very day

One day soon I’ll return to stay
With my island girl so lovely and brown
Under the moon, vows we will say
Love we will renew in old Lahaina town



Island Of Broken Dreams (Larry W. Jones 05/15/2003) (song#1489)

I stroll through the sand in sorrow
On the island of broken dreams
I never thought about tomorrow
And the tears like broken streams

Today I try to forget
Yesterday’s senseless and hurtful schemes
For today my eyes are wet
On the island of broken dreams

Look for tears, and here’s where you’ll find me
Strolling in the sand when the sun goes down
I have left love and dreams behind me
For today my dreams are shattered all around

True love is something you can’t borrow
Tears will flow like broken streams
Your laughter today will turn to sorrow
On the island of broken dreams



Mastercard And Visa (Larry W. Jones 05/15/2003) (song#1490)

Mastercard and Visa men have named you
You’re the plastic that makes the ladies smile
You’re the only reason why I’m lonely, and I blame you
Why I’m here alone and she’s back on the isle

She ran up up a bill long as a mile, Mastercard and Visa
Oh, by the way, she left me with a broken heart

I had a lot of dreams but I made a misstep
She lied to me there, my dreams all died there
You’re not warm, you’re not real, Mastercard and Visa
You’re just a plastic only, platinum work of art

You’re not warm, you’re not real, Mastercard and Visa
You’re just a plastic only, platinum work of art
Mastercard and Visa



True Love Way (Larry W. Jones 05/15/2003) (song#1491)

Now that you are near
This, my love, I have to say
Our love will last, not just a year
But forever and a day

Other things like power and kings
That only live for show
Have in the past only sprouted wings
For love they didn’t know

But my love for you is dear
Warm as sunshine on the bay
Now that you are near
We’ll stroll together a long, long way

Even if at times we stumble
True love will lead the way
Love like ours will keep us humble
For island love was made that way

Even if at times we stumble
True love will lead the way
Love like ours will keep us humble
For island love was made that way



A Happy Place (Larry W. Jones 05/15/2003) (song#1492)

Here’s how to make those dark skies clear
Think of a happy place
Dream about a paradise of cheer
Think of a happy place

Don’t think that it’s too much to ask
Dreams are still in style
In a blink you can lose that gloomy mask
When you dream of a tropic isle

Think of a happy prospect
And let your dreams begin
Just let your happy thoughts reflect
Warm islands and a violin

You can have your sunshine
And let it shine upon your face
Just dream of an island sometime
And think of a happy place

You can have your sunshine
And let it shine upon your face
Just dream of an island sometime
And think of a happy place



An Instrumental Melody (Larry W. Jones 05/15/2003) (song#1493)

Instrumental melody
That’s the way my heart does sing
Cause you’re the one I love, the one I’m dreaming of
An instrumental melody

You’re the one for whom I live
There on your island in the sea
All my love to you I give, in my heart relives
An instrumental melody

We will wed this coming June
Underneath a tropic moon
Though you’re still afar, I’m there where you are
In dreams of love and our honeymoon

Oh, my love there by the sea
You were meant for me
Our love was meant to be, a heartfelt song eternally
An instrumental melody

Our love was meant to be, a heartfelt song eternally
An instrumental melody



Strolling Together (Larry W. Jones 05/15/2003) (song#1494)

Over the ocean lies an island of delight
Where stars shine like diamonds in the balmy night
Two hearts are singing there, in the tropic air
Love is in it’s prime, a song of sweetest rhyme
For you and I are here, island love is oh, so near
Our love will last until the end of time

Ukuleles ring, and island songs they’re singing
In the air, love the wind is bringing
Our love is so bright, the moon’s out tonight
Strolling together in the island sand

Here tonight is the lovebird
On our hearts, love it conferred
An island song of love that is strong
Strolling together in the island sand

You will be my island girl, and I your island man
We’ll get so brown right here in island sand
Our wedding day is set for when the sun goes down
Underneath the tropic moon in old Lahaina town

We will live with love’s attire
Island love will be a tiki fire
An island song of love that is strong
Strolling together in the island sand

We will live with love’s attire
Island love will be a tiki fire
An island song of love that is strong
Strolling together in the island sand
Strolling together in the island sand



Full Red Moon (Larry W. Jones 05/15/2003) (song#1495)

It was the full red moon of scorpio
May fifteen in twenty oh three
On the island where soft breezes blow
It spoke of love for you and me

It was the full red moon of scorpio
From ten thirteen til forty three
Holding hands, I felt it so
Love was flowing from you to me

The full red moon was heavenly
As we watched from lawn chairs in the sand
Love was in the air there by the sea
And we obeyed that sweet command

It was the full red moon of scorpio
A night of heavenly moonlight dance
And just to let the heavens know
It was a night of sweet romance

It was the full red moon of scorpio
A night of heavenly moonlight dance
And just to let the heavens know
It was a night of sweet romance



An Island To Dream On (Larry W. Jones 05/16/2003) (song#1496)

Let me give you an island to dream on
So your fantasies can live upon that isle
Who could ask for more than a tropic zone
And let me be on your island to dream awhile

Please give me a dream before you leave
So my fantasies can fill my empty arms
I only ask for an island with a tropic breeze
An island with only you and all your charms

When we’re alone with our fantasies
You’ll be with me and I with you
We’ll just forget about realities
On an island we both can dream on too

Let me give you an island to dream on
Please give me a dream before you leave
When we’re alone in our tropic zone
We’ll dream of island love for you and me



Sandpiper’s Song (Larry W. Jones 05/17/2003) (song#1497)

Oh ulili ‘e, sandpiper of the Yukon
Has returned to Hawaii where the sea is calm
What are you piping of, tattler from the Yukon
Is it of Hawaii’s sand that is so warm

Oh ulili ‘e, sandpiper from Alaska
You come to partake of Hawaii’s balm
Your winters are as cold as in Nebraska
Your piping tattles of Hawaii’s calm

The sandpiper’s song is sweet and soft
Every winter, he migrates on the winds aloft
It is to Hawaii’s shores he comes for awhile
To tattle about the sand of warm and sunny isles

Oh ulili ‘e, little bird that runs along the sand
You have come again to grace our land
Oh ulili ‘e, sandpiper with a tale to tell
You come again to where warm islands dwell



Soft Winds (Larry W. Jones 05/17/2003) (song#1498)

There’s an island where the soft winds of the tropics
Go caressing gently through the swaying palms
And where the sound of my love’s sweet aloha
Is there to fulfill my dreams with all her charms

All the dreams of love in all its topics
At long last has finally come true
When the soft winds of the tropics
Brought me true island love and you

There’s an island where the lehua blossom
Smells so fragrant in the tropic air
That’s where my memories will forever wander
When I placed a lehua blossom in your hair

There’s an island where the soft winds of the tropics
Go caressing gently through the swaying palms
And where the sound of my love’s sweet aloha
Is there to fulfill my dreams with all her charms

All the dreams of love in all its topics
At long last has finally come true
When the soft winds of the tropics
Brought me true island love and you



Aloha Tower Of Love (Larry W. Jones 05/17/2003) (song#1499)

The Aloha tower is called the tower of love
There in Honolulu where soft breezes blow
If a garland lei floats back to kiss the shore thereof
Then love will return, as the legend said so long ago

It may be just a tale, but it tells of dreams
Dreams of love that every boy and girl knows of
And Honolulu is the perfect place, it seems
To toss a garland lei by the Aloha tower of love

There at the Aloha tower he boarded the ship
But before he sailed, he tossed a fragrant lei
And he bid aloha, goodbye to her before the trip
As from the Aloha tower of love he sailed away

She watched the floating lei she had given him to wear
Would it return or would Aloha just mean goodbye
Slowly it passed the reef and kissed the shoreline there
She said aloha in her heart as tears of love filled her eyes

The Aloha tower is called the tower of love
There in Honolulu where soft breezes blow
If a garland lei floats back to kiss the shore thereof
Then love will return, as the legend said so long ago



Fifteen Hundred (Larry W. Jones 05/17/2003) (song#1500)

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

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

Be My Island Love (Larry W. Jones 05/17/2003) (song#1501)

I will weave the clouds of Haleakala
Into a wedding gown for you
If you will be my island love

I will tell the warm winds of Kohala
To whisper that I love you true
If you will be my island love

I will summon the golden beams
Of the moon that’s on the sea
To light tonight those olden dreams
That were meant for you and me

I will buy you diamonds from the stars above
For a necklace that only you are worthy of
If you will be my island love

If you will make all of my dreams come true
My love will forever be so true
If you will be my island love



Soft Kohala Moon (Larry W. Jones 05/18/2003) (song#1502)

Dreams will soon
Come true for me and you
Love we will there renew
Under the soft Kohala moon

Tradewinds will say
Come stroll down by the bay
It will be a lovely tune
Under the soft Kohala moon

Our love was started there, beyoud compare
Soon we’ll return to the shore that we love most
Our hearts still yearn for love that’s in the air
Under the moon there on the Kohala coast

My love for you
Is like an island tune
That my heart speaks to you
Under the soft Kohala moon

My love for you
Is like an island tune
That my heart speaks to you
Under the soft Kohala moon



For All The Reasons (Larry W. Jones 05/18/2003) (song#1503)

The reason why love is true
Is because of you
And the reason why there’s a song in my heart
Is because of you right from the start

The reason why the sun will shine
Is because you are mine
Just as the reason why islands are in the stream
Is because they needed you to be their dream

The reason why I live
Is because of your sweet kiss
And the reason why paradise exists
Is because I can be near you like this

For all the reasons in the world
Are the reasons you’re my girl
Because I’m in paradise, it’s true
When I’m on the isle of love with you

Because I’m in paradise, it’s true
When I’m on the isle of love with you



Luau Jubilee (Larry W. Jones 05/18/2003) (song#1504)

Aloha, good lookin’, what’s that stuff you’re cookin’
It looks like you’re goin’ to the luau jubilee
Aloha, island baby, don’t tell me no or maybe
I’ve got a new recipe for fish and poi, you see

I’ve got a leaky canoe and some time to kill
And I know a place by the old sugar mill
There’s ukuleles, and the music is fine
We’ll paddle on over, listen to some Maui chimes

Aloha, good lookin’, what’s that stuff you’re cookin’
It looks like you’re goin’ to the luau jubilee
I’m in love, already, tradewinds are blowin’ steady
And love is in the air for you and me

I’ve been lookin’, at fish and poi you’re cookin’
We’re gonna go to the luau jubilee

I’m gonna throw away all of my dreams
Keep the one of you and all of my schemes
Buy a little cottage that’s just made for two
And dream away my life just lovin’ you

Aloha, good lookin’, what’s that stuff you’re cookin’
It looks like we’re goin’ to
Looks like we’re goin’ to
It looks like we’re goin’ to the luau jubilee



Nani o Ola’a (Larry W. Jones 05/18/2003) (song#1505)

A young cowboy from Waimea
For the great Parker ranch he rode
He fell in love with a girl from Kohala
And upon her all his love bestowed

From the stone walls of Kawaihea uka
He picked the honeysuckle for her leis
The sweet nani o Ola’a, beauty of Ola’a
Violet flower leis for his Kohala island maid

The sweet nani o Ola’a
Is the honeysuckle beauty of the isle
Sweet was the taste within his heart
When he saw his Kohala beauty smile

The young cowboy from Waimea
Asked for the hand of this sweet island girl
She would wait for his return
From the mainland schooling world

When he returned, he saddled up for Kohala
And picked the nani o Ola’a for her leis
But the birds of Ola’a were not singing
He saw other cowboy boots and a dried up lei

The young cowboy from Waimea
Left his nani o Ola’a lei there to let her know
That his love for her was just as strong
But he didn’t want his tears to show

Thomas Lindsay rode back to work the Parker herd
Driving longhorns up at Hualalai
He was thrown from his horse and he died
His last year of living was his twenty third



Bittersweet The Tune (Larry W. Jones 05/19/2003) (song#1506)

In the islands there’s music, bittersweet the tune
Love there is basic, like eternal June
But where is the moon when my love has gone
Will there come soon my sweet tune and song

In the islands there’s music, so near yet far
Somewhere there’s love under a moon and a star
That star would shine bright
And the moon soon would too
If only my love had not gone

In the islands there’s music, so near yet far
Somewhere there’s love under a moon and a star
That star would shine bright
And the moon soon would too
If only my love had not gone

That star would shine bright
And the moon soon would too
If only my love had not gone



How Did This Happen (Larry W. Jones 05/19/2003) (song#1507)

Love is the reason why I think of you yet
My heart is the reason why I just can’t forget
My heart won’t set my love of you free
Why do I have such regret
Oh, how did this happen to me

The luau was fun, and so was the dance
I held you close and kissed you sweetly
Why was my foolish heart so blind to romance
I never gave it a chance
Oh, how did this happen to me

Love is the reason why I think of you yet
My heart is the reason why I just can’t forget
Do you think we could give it just one more try
Is there still love here in paradise
Love is the reason, for you my heart cries

When I look back at that lovely night
You in my arms in the golden moon light
Why was I so blind that I couldn’t see
That love was there waiting, calling to me
Oh, how did this happen to me



Too Soon (Larry W. Jones 05/19/2003) (song#1508)

Oh, your island love has come too soon, they say
You’re too young to know
That it may soon fade away
Aloha can also mean goodbye
Love that comes too soon can also make you cry

But I know, it’s not too soon for island love
We can see the future
The one with love that they’re not thinking of
In years to come
They’ll sing a different tune
When they see our island love
Didn’t come too soon

But I know, it’s not too soon for island love
We can see the future
The one with love that they’re not thinking of
In years to come
They’ll sing a different tune
When they see our island love
Didn’t come too soon



Hawaii And My Heart (Larry W. Jones 05/19/2003) (song#1509)

Darling, the islands are basking in the sunshine
Sweet tuberoses are kissed here by the dew
While the islands are basking in the sunshine
Hawaii and my heart are calling to you

Darling, the islands are basking in the sunshine
Sweet tuberoses are kissed here by the dew
While birds of paradise tell me that you are mine
Hawaii and my heart are calling to you

The sunshine in the islands follow the warm summer rain
Oh, bring your sweet love to fill the hollow of my empty arms again

Darling, the islands are basking in the sunshine
Sweet tuberoses are kissed here by the dew
While birds of paradise tell me that you are mine
Hawaii and my heart are calling to you

While birds of paradise tell me that you are mine
Hawaii and my heart are calling to you



Let It Blow (Larry W. Jones 05/19/2003) (song#1510)

Oh, the islands are so delightful
And the weather is never spiteful
And it’s breezy here at the luau show
Let it blow, let it blow, let it blow

The tradewinds are never stopping
Birds of paradise are island hopping
The full moon is on the horizon low
Let love flow, let it flow, let it flow

When I hold you in my arms tonight
I want to keep you in my prison farm
Here safely in my heart so tight
That I can feel your every charm

Well, the music is slowly dying
But the tradewinds are softly sighing
Island love is in the air, I know
So, let it blow, let it blow, let it blow



Somewhere In The Island Breeze (Larry W. Jones 05/19/2003) (song#1511)

I used to stroll with you down Kalalaua avenue
Island love was warm underneath the swaying trees
But then I lost your love somewhere in the island breeze

All the friends we saw, would smile and say Aloha
They said our love was steady as the tides and seas
Then love was lost when it drifted on the island breeze

I try not to remember, but love’s a burning ember
I try to just forget, but I haven’t yet
You’re gone away, and to this very day
Your name is whispered through the trees, on the island breeze

Now, as I stroll along, I still look for you on Kalakaua avenue
And everyone I see, I ask them please
Have they seen my only love somewhere in the island breeze

I try not to remember, but love’s a burning ember
I try to just forget, but I haven’t yet
You’re gone away, and to this very day
Your name is whispered through the trees, on the island breeze

Now, as I stroll along, I still look for you on Kalakaua avenue
And everyone I see, I ask them please
Have they seen my only love somewhere in the island breeze
Somewhere in the island breeze



My Love For You (Larry W. Jones 05/19/2003) (song#1512)

See the pali cliffs on Kauai isle
Row a racing skiff in island style
And remember, darling, always smile
My love for you is true

See the marketplace in Waikiki
Light the tiki torch down by the sea
And don’t forget to remember me
My love for you is true

My dreams will all be filled with only you
Maybe your dreams will meet mine there in Hawaii blue

See the ocean come to kiss the shore
Darling, think of me and no one more
And remember that it’s you I adore
My love for you is true

My dreams will all be filled with only you
Maybe your dreams will meet mine there in Hawaii blue

See the ocean come to kiss the shore
Darling, think of me and no one more
And remember that it’s you I adore
My love for you is true



Year By Year And Day By Day (Larry W. Jones 05/19/2003) (song#1513)


Year by year, I’m adding up all the days
And day by day, I’m adding up all the ways
That I can find to say I love you
My dear, I love you in so many ways
Year by year and day by day

The stream of time has brought very few tears
And this dream of mine has lasted through the years
As the tides come steadily on moonlight bay
My love will stay with you, come what may
Year by year and day by day

Year by year, I’m adding up all the days
And day by day, I’m adding up all the ways

The stream of time has brought very few tears
And this dream of mine has lasted through the years
As the tides come steadily on moonlight bay
My love will stay with you, come what may
Year by year and day by day

Year by year and day by day



Isle Of My Dreams (Larry W. Jones 05/19/2003) (song#1514)

Isle of my dreams, Aloha to that island melody
Isle of my dreams, sounds like a heartfelt symphony
When I was just a boy, on the shores of Waikiki
The band would play the score, Isle of my dreams

We were just young island boys
But those island songs brought us such joys
Isle of my dreams, sung under golden moonlight beams
Memories of long ago, where gentle breezes blow

I still get those tears in my eyes
When I think of those songs in paradise
And I still feel the joys, when we were island boys
When the band would play Isle of my dreams, Isle of my dreams

We were just young island boys
But those island songs brought us such joys
Isle of my dreams, sung under golden moonlight beams
Memories of long ago, where gentle breezes blow

And I still feel the joys, when we were island boys
When the band would play Isle of my dreams, Isle of my dreams



Nawiliwili Harbor Bay (Larry W. Jones 05/20/2003) (song#1515)

A song of island love was what we were
Nawili, Nawili, Nawiliwili harbor bay
That song of island love is now a blur
Silent as Nawiliwili harbor bay

A song of island love was what we were
For she’s now gone and I’m missing her
Nawiliwili harbor still sets my heart astir
Nawili, Nawili, Nawiliwili harbor bay

Nawiliwili harbor is on Kauai isle
Our island love was started there in style
Now that love is different as night from day
Silent as Nawiliwili harbor bay

Tomorrow I’ll find another island love
One that won’t hide or run away
I’ll find her strolling there just above
Nawili, Nawili, Nawiliwili harbor bay



What An Island (Larry W. Jones 05/20/2003) (song#1516)

I hear the islands when they sing, where the tradewinds blow
I’ve got a funny ring in my heart
What an island, what a song, they’re part of my love
Where the tradewinds blow

I’ve got a funny ring in my heart, I’m in love, I know
She’s the only girl I’m dreaming of
What an island, what a song, they’re part of my love
Where the tradewinds blow

On the island she’s a pretty thing
She’s the reason why my heart is ringing
And her beauty goes deeper than her skin, I know
Where the tradewinds blow, my heart is singing

I hear the islands when they sing, where the tradewinds blow
I’ve got a funny ring in my heart
What an island, what a song, they’re part of my love
Where the tradewinds blow



Ku’u Lei Nani ‘Oe (Larry W. Jones 05/19/2003) (song#1517)

Sweet is the lei mokihana berry
Gathered for ku’u lei nani ‘oe, my beautiful lei
It will adorn the girl I marry
On Kauai isle by the beautiful bay

Pay attention to what I say
Beautiful is the mokihana lei
Unforgettable will be the day
When the girl that I will marry
Wears the ku’u lei nani ‘oe
My beautiful mokihana berry lei

High above the bay of Hanalei
Namolokama rises to the skies
There I will weave my mokihana lei
Ku’u lei nani ‘oe, my beautiful lei from paradise

Pay attention to what I say
Beautiful is the mokihana lei
Unforgettable will be the day
When the girl that I will marry
Wears the ku’u lei nani ‘oe
My beautiful mokihana berry lei

Unforgettable will be the day
When the girl that I will marry
Wears the ku’u lei nani ‘oe
My beautiful mokihana berry lei



My Hula Saddle Knees (Larry W. Jones 05/20/2003) (song#1518)

When I go strolling in the breeze
People call me saddle knees
But that doesn’t rattle me
I like my hula saddle knees

I’m a hapa haole island boy
But I still eat my fish and poi
Knobby knees don’t rattle me
I like my hula saddle knees

Don’t let my saddle knees now fool ya
I can straddle canoes with ease and hula
I can climb a coconut tree
With one knee around and the other free

I’m a happy hapa haole boy
I can do da hula like the real McCoy
Knobby knees don’t rattle me
I like my hula saddle knees
I like my hula saddle knees, oh yeah



Love Strolled In (Larry W. Jones 05/20/2003) (song#1519)

Love strolled in to say Aloha
And banished the dark clouds away
Love strolled in to say Aloha
And taught me true love in island ways

It was such an unexpected moment
On the isle where soft breezes blow
You must have been heaven sent
You said Aloha, and I said hello

One little glance was all it took
One true romance was in that look
The future came fast and brushed away the past
When love strolled in to say Aloha with you

It was such an unexpected moment
On the isle where soft breezes blow
You must have been heaven sent
You said Aloha, and I said hello

One little glance was all it took
One true romance was in that look
The future came fast and brushed away the past
When love strolled in to say Aloha with you



You Are My Only One (Larry W. Jones 05/20/2003) (song#1520)

Whether the night or whether the day
You are my only sun
Under the light of day or moonlight on the bay
You are my only one

So, you see, it doesn’t really matter to me
Whether the first case or the latter to be
Because you’re the only thing that matters
Otherwise my broken heart would shatter in two

Whether the night or whether the day
My love will weather all, come what may
Even if there comes stormy weather outside
My love for you will be as steady as the tide

Whether the night or whether the day
You are my only sun
Under the light of day or moonlight on the bay
You are my only one

Whether the night or whether the day
You are my only one



I Just Make Believe (Larry W. Jones 05/20/2003) (song#1521)

I just make believe I’m on an island if I’m blue
I find it really isn’t hard to do
And it’s such happiness that I perceive
If I just make believe

I believe that anyone can dream
About an island in a tropic scene
A little cottage by the valley stream
Means a lot if I just make believe

I just make believe that she is there
And I believe that she has much love to share
I just close my eyes and dream some more
About my make believe love on that island shore

So, if you’re a dreamer just like me
Just make believe and sing this melody
There’s no reason why you ever need to grieve
All you have to do is just make believe

So, if you’re a dreamer just like me
Just make believe and sing this melody
There’s no reason why you ever need to grieve
All you have to do is just make believe



South Of Tahiti (Larry W. Jones 05/20/2003) (song#1522)

South of Tahiti, blue oceans away
The tropic air spoke of love
Where the breeze makes the coco palms sway
Today my thoughts wander, to that peaceful bay
South of Tahiti, blue oceans away

Her name was Moana, a girl with such grace
There on that tropic isle
A smile from her lovely face
We danced at the luau, by that peaceful bay
South of Tahiti, blue oceans away

She smiled and whispered Ia ora na ‘oe
And asked me if I would please stay
She cried as I told her Araua’e, see you soon
For I sailed away with the tide of the moon

South of Tahiti, I sailed back one day
But on that lovely shore, she was no more
Where coco palms sway
My heart I left there, for her love to share
South of Tahiti, blue oceans away



That’s Island Love (Larry W. Jones 05/20/2003) (song#1523)

In Waikiki where coco palms sway
Island boy meets island girl, down by the bay

When the moon’s on the sea like a door with love’s key
That’s island love
When the sand is so warm and she’s there on your arm
That’s island love

Soft Maui chimes will ring from steel guitars that sing
And you’ll say Aloha
Two hearts will be one when the night is all done
Like love’s hurrah

Under stars up above with the girl you dream of
That’s island love
When you dance at the luau and you don’t even know how
You must be in love

When your dreams all come true and she says I love you
That’s just what you see down in old Waikiki
That’s island love



Come Back To Me (Larry W. Jones 05/21/2003) (#1524)

Come back to me, my island love
You’re the only one I’m dreaming of
Has my dream been lost somewhere above
Please come back to me, my island love

Yesterday, you were mine alone
Today I find that you have gone
Oh, how I yearn for our familiar song
Please come back to me, my island love

And if you stay away, my heart will surely cry
But if you come again to stay, I can return to paradise

Where tradewinds blow in skies of blue
You must know how much I’m missing you
Here with my heart I’m begging you
Please come back to me, my island love

Where tradewinds blow in skies of blue
You must know how much I’m missing you
Here with my heart I’m begging you
Please come back to me, my island love



Love Has Gone (Larry W. Jones 05/21/2003) (song#1525)

Love has gone, my heart is filled with pain
Dreams of paradise have turned to rain
Cloudy skies cover now this tropic zone
Love has gone and now I’m all alone

Love has gone, it’s no more in the air
It’s been so long since I saw her there
My heart is heavy as a weighted stone
Love has gone and now I’m all alone

Love has gone, I only know the blues
It’s so hard to lose the one you choose
Tears are all that memories have shown
Love has gone and now I’m all alone

Dreams of island love have turned to grief
My heart is broken now upon the reef
My life is empty of the dreams I’ve known
Love has gone and now I’m all alone
Love has gone and now I’m all alone



My Island Love (Larry W. Jones 05/21/2003) (song#1526)

Once I had an island love
Who lived down by the peaceful sea
And the moon told me of
Her secret wish to be set free

So I wished upon a tropic star
For a dream that would be true
And now she never wanders far
For she’s my dream that did come true

Now the islands ring with songs of joy untold
Even rainbows come to shine with golden glows

At last, I know what isles were meant just for
For my island love is with me on this peaceful shore

At last, I know what isles were meant just for
For my island love is with me on this peaceful shore



Moon Of Brigadoon (Larry W. Jones 05/22/2003) (song#1527)

An island girl is like the month of May
That comes before the month of June
Love is in the air, somewhere up there, they say
When you’re down here, so near the moon of Brigadoon

An island girl is like a melody
Played softly as your favorite tune
She’s there again in the summer breeze
Underneath the moon of Brigadoon

The moon of Brigadoon is such a lovely thing
Celestial in it’s beauty when it glows
The moon of Brigadoon is what the heavens bring
When love is in the air where the tradewind blows

I met an island girl down by the bay
Right before the month of June
I asked if she would marry me that day
And she said that she would think it through

She said that she would marry me some day
Maybe in the month of June
But she would tarry til our vows we say
Underneath the moon of Brigadoon

Now that island girl is my wife to be
And we’ll be married very soon
Love will be an island tune endlessly
Underneath the moon of Brigadoon



I Give My Heart (Larry W. Jones 05/23/2003) (song#1528)

Tonight I give my heart to you
And feel the love that’s in the air
You must treat it with the utmost care
And greet it with Aloha that is true

Tonight I give my heart to you
For you to hold and to love
You must give it your heart too
And swear by all the stars above

Tonight I hear your sigh that makes me glad
Tomorrow, will you make me smile if I’m feeling sad
Tonight I give my heart to you, not some empty scheme
You must be my island dream, not just an island in the stream

I’ve thought it over, and I’m sure
That you really are my dream come true
Our island love will endure
So, tonight I give my heart to you



On Nights Like This (Larry W. Jones 05/25/2003) (song#1529)

On nights like this, under velvet skies and stars so bright
I stroll the sand wondering about things that are out of sight
It’s then that I hear island guitars where we once tread
And I remember the words of love that we both said

On nights like this, I recall
Dancing to those soft Maui chimes
And your heart beating in tune with mine

On nights like this, where is our love that once was true
Might it be that you’re romancing with a love that’s new
Or, I wonder if you’re strolling under those same palm trees
And thinking of our island love when love was in the tradewind breeze

On nights like this, I recall
Dancing to those soft Maui chimes
And your heart beating in tune with mine

On nights like this, I wonder what became of our island love
On nights like this, you’re still the dream I’m always dreaming of



Someplace In The Blue (Larry W. Jones 05/25/2003) (song#1530)

Someplace in the blue, underneath a new full moon tonight
Someone is thinking of you and wanting to hold you tight
Somewhere in the blue, someone’s dreaming of you
And hoping that you’re dreaming of that someone too

Even though there are oceans between you and her
You share the same emotions that love can confer
And when the tradewinds whisper a sweet lullabye
Dream that you’re together under that same tropic sky

Someplace in the blue, somehow love will see you through
Someone’s there dreaming too, dreaming of you
Someplace where dreams are coming true
Someplace in the blue

Someone’s there dreaming too, dreaming of you
Someplace where dreams are coming true
Someplace in the blue



Where I Want To Live (Larry W. Jones 05/25/2003) (song#1531)

Just a little island in the stream
Not one that’s just a dream
One where love is true
That’s where I want to live with you

A balmy night with stars in a velvet sky
Where Aloha never means goodbye
Where love is always on the tradewind too
That’s where I want to live with you

In old Lahaina town, island love is everywhere
I would never let you down, my love with you I’d share
In old Lahaina town, dreams are daily made
I would never let you down, my love will never fade

Just a little island in the stream
Not one that’s just a dream
One where love is true
That’s where I want to live with you



My One True Island Love (Larry W. Jones 05/25/2003) (song#1532)

My dream of you is like a door bell ring
Like a tropic breeze that’s just awakening
And you emerge from my dream of love
My one true island love

When the night descends with mysterious charms
Love condescends to fill my empty arms
In dreams I kiss your lips and tell you of
My one true island love

In dreams you’re an angel from heaven
On an island of love somewhere unknown
The flower that’s there in your hair is given
As a vow of my love for you alone

How can a dream be so real if it isn’t true
I know some day I will find the one who
Fills my every dream from realms above
My one true island love

I know some day I will find the one who
Fills my every dream from realms above
My one true island love



Love Just Begun (Larry W. Jones 05/25/2003) (song#1533)

Our love has only just begun
On our lovely island in the sun
A song of love that’s new today
But one that will never fade away

When the sun is high in paradise
Only half a day of love is done
And when I look into your eyes, I know
Our love has only just begun

A new horizon becons with it’s call
It’s the future calling day by day
And whether a peaceful bay or stormy squall
Our love will weather, come what may

Our love will last a long, long while
On our lovely island in the sun
And every day we’ll find time to smile
Our love has only just begun

Our love has only just begun
On our lovely island in the sun
A song of love that’s new today
But one that will never fade away
Our love has only just begun



Warm Are The Islands (Larry W. Jones 05/25/2003) (song#1534)

Warm are the islands of Aloha
As the sun that shines from skies above
Warm are the islands of Aloha
Transformed into a paradise of love

Gentle are the tradewinds of Aloha
That whisper love upon the island breeze
Gentle are the tradewinds of Aloha
Bringing island love to you and me

These are the islands of Aloha
Islands in the sun
These are the islands of Aloha
Where love and island ways are one

Peaceful are the oceans of Aloha
Strong are the emotions of love
Peaceful are the oceans of Aloha
Gentle as the peaceful morning dove

These are the islands of Aloha
Islands in the sun
These are the islands of Aloha
Where love and island ways are one

Warm are the islands of Aloha
As the sun that shines from skies above
Warm are the islands of Aloha
Transformed into a paradise of love



She’s An Island Girl (Larry W. Jones 05/26/2003) (song#1535)

She’s an island girl fresh as the spring
Her polynesian eyes tell you everything
Aloha is all she had to say
And my heart fell that very day

An island girl keeps playing with my mind
I tried but I can’t get leave her memory behind
I saw her when the sun was going down
She’s an island girl in old Lahaina town

Her memory still hangs around like Maui chimes
Music soft as island breezes making rhymes
She’s an island girl fresh as the spring
She plays my heart like island guitar strings

An island girl keeps playing with my mind
I tried but I can’t get leave her memory behind
I saw her when the sun was going down
She’s an island girl in old Lahaina town

I tried but I can’t get leave her memory behind
I saw her when the sun was going down
She’s an island girl in old Lahaina town



Maui Island Bound (Larry W. Jones 05/26/2003) (song#1536)

I’m waiting in the airline boarding room
Wondering if this song will be recorded soon
Playin’ gigs on this here mainland, away from my island sand
Seems every hour is in demand for this here lonely island man
Maui Island bound
Soon I’ll be
Maui Island bound
Maui, where ohana love is living
Maui, where there’s no misgiving
Maui, where there’s always thanksgiving
For the love she shows to me

I’m just an island in the stream
Lonely on this mainland dreamin’ dreams
And love in each metropolis is as empty as Acropolis
That’s why this lonely island boy and his lonely guitar is
Maui Island bound
Soon I’ll be
Maui Island bound
Maui, where ohana love is living
Maui, where there’s no misgiving
Maui, where there’s always thanksgiving
For the love she shows to me

Last night I sang those songs of island love
To folks who love were empty of
And I was just reminded of, my island in the peaceful sea
Where love and harmony are intertwined, and soon I’ll be
Maui Island bound
Soon I’ll be
Maui Island bound
Maui, where ohana love is living
Maui, where there’s no misgiving
Maui, where there’s always thanksgiving
For the love she shows to me
For the love she shows to me



An Island Rose There Grew (Larry W. Jones 05/26/2003) (song#1537)

Close by the sandy shore, where the tide is low
By the sandy shore, where the tide is low
Where the tide is low, an island rose there grew
Where the tide is low, an island rose there grew

It looked so lonely there, waiting for someone to care
Looked so lonely there, waiting for someone to care
Nobody passing there saw how it shined with dew
Nobody passing there saw how it shined with dew

But my eyes beheld how lovely was the island rose
My eyes beheld how lovely was the island rose
So I plucked it by the sandy shore where the tide is low
I plucked it by the sandy shore where the tide is low

Gently I held it in my hand and treated it with care
I held it in my hand and treated it with care
Then I kissed my island maid and placed it in her hair
I kissed my island maid and placed it in her hair

Close by the sandy shore, where the tide is low
An island rose there grew
How it shined with dew
I plucked it by the sandy shore where the tide is low
I treated it with care
I placed it in her hair
I kissed my island maid and placed it in her hair



Gold Are The Islands (Larry W. Jones 05/26/2003) (song#1538)

Gold are the islands in sunlight of morn
Clothed in the glory of heaven adorned
Clothed in the glory of heaven adorned

The birds of paradise sing as they fly
And no happier man could there be than I
No happier man could there be than I

Dew on the roses anew every morn
The island discloses new flowers born
The island discloses new flowers born

Songs of the islands when each day is new
Tells of true love that I have for you
Tells of true love that I have for you

Songs of the islands when each day is new
Tells of true love that I have for you



Islands Are Romantic (Larry W. Jones 05/26/2003) (song#1539)

Islands are romantic
Steel guitars in the night, a dream that just might
Be romantic too

Shadows on the sand, island girl and island man
Breezes playing songs through trees that sway along
And the moon is saying you and I are here for love

Islands are romantic
When you’re young at heart, no matter when
Islands are romantic when love begins

Every song is soft as a lover’s kiss
A moonlit night of bliss
Islands are romantis
Let’s let our love grow gigantic
Let’s be romantic too

Islands are romantis
Let’s let our love grow gigantic
Let’s be romantic too



My Sweet Island Tuberose (Larry W. Jones 05/26/2003) (song#1540)

For every honey bee
There’s a flower that suits him to a tee
It’s the one who’s strolling here with me
My sweet island tuberose

When we go strolling by
Even the tradewinds stop and sigh
And you’re the reason why
My sweet island tuberose

Don’t need island sugar cane
Just need your sweet kiss again
Just like sweet champagne
My sweet island tuberose

Curvy hula hips, sweetest honey lips
She’s a song that needs no script
My sweet island tuberose

Don’t need island sugar cane
Just need your sweet kiss again
Just like sweet champagne
My sweet island tuberose



On A True Blue Island (Larry W. Jones 05/26/2003) (song#1541)

On a true blue island
In a deep blue ocean
True love and deep devotion
Where love is on the breeze

On a true blue island
I could be your island man
We could find the time for love, and
Strolling in the island sand

I know a place with palm trees tall
It’s the island where Hawaii calls
That’s the place for you and me
That’s the place where we could be

On a true blue island
In a deep blue ocean
True love and deep devotion
In Hawaii blue

I know a place with palm trees tall
It’s the island where Hawaii calls
That’s the place for you and me
That’s the place where we could be

On a true blue island
In a deep blue ocean
True love and deep devotion
In Hawaii blue



Honolulu Rose Aloha Oe (Larry W. Jones 05/26/2003) (song#1542)

Honolulu Rose, now don’t be crying
I’ll sail back home to Honolulu bay
Every moonlit night, for you I’ll be sighing
And counting every day that I’m away

Honolulu Rose, wear this flower in your hair
Think of me each day and know how much I care
Now hold me close and kiss me
Honolulu Rose, Aloha ‘oe

Honolulu Rose, wear this flower in your hair
Think of me each day and know how much I care
Now hold me close and kiss me
Honolulu Rose, Aloha ‘oe

Now hold me close and kiss me
Honolulu Rose, Aloha ‘oe



Under The Stars With You (Larry W. Jones 05/26/2003) (song#1543)

Island guitars, under the stars with you
Island guitars, a midnight rendevous
Polynesian eyes reflecting velvety skies
And saying Aloha to love in paradise

Island guitars bring songs of sweet romance
Where love is true in Hawaii blue
I’ll always remember this chance with
Island guitars, under the stars with you

Island guitars, under the stars with you
Island guitars, a midnight rendevous
Polynesian eyes reflecting velvety skies
And saying Aloha to love in paradise

Island guitars bring songs of sweet romance
Where love is true in Hawaii blue
I’ll always remember this chance with
Island guitars, under the stars with you

I’ll always remember this chance with
Island guitars, under the stars with you



Hanalei Bay Blues (Larry W. Jones 05/26/2003) (song#1544)

I’ve got the strollin’ Hanalei blues
Since my baby left me at Hanalei bay
She took my heart and my love she abused
Jumped on a ship and sailed away

Well, I ran out of poi, ain’t got no joy
Ain’t goin’ to no luau, anyway
If she comes back this way, I hope she will stay
Strollin’ with my baby down at Hanalei bay

Well, I’m strollin’ in the sand alone, empty tropic zone
That girl that I love so, she don’t love me no more
Think I’m gonna take a ride, on the evening tide
Bury my heart way out at sea cause it already died

Well, I ran out of poi, ain’t got no joy
Ain’t goin’ to no luau, anyway
If she comes back this way, I hope she will stay
Strollin’ with my baby down at Hanalei bay
Strollin’ with my baby down at Hanalei bay
Strollin’ with my baby down at Hanalei bay



Someday My Island Love (Larry W. Jones 05/26/2003) (song#1545)

Someday my island love will come
Somewhere on an island in the sun
And how lovely that sweet day will be
When my sweet island love is here with me

Tradewinds will whisper, Aloha, I love you
And then I’ll steal from her a kiss or two
Even though she’s still just a dream
Someday my island love will be coming true

Someday my island love will come
Somewhere on an island in the sun
And I’ll feel her love in the tradewind air
Then I’ll place a flower in her hair

Someday we’ll sing songs of island love
We’ll do all the things I’ve been dreaming of
Even though she’s still just a dream
Someday my island love will be coming true



As Long As Songs Have Rhyme (Larry W. Jones 05/26/2003) (song#1546)

As long as songs have rhyme, and Hawaiian skies are blue
As long as islands have eternal spring
And birds of paradise to sing
That’s how long I’ll be loving you
As long as songs have rhyme, and Hawaiian skies are blue

As long as the bays are full, and the days are passing by
I’ll still be here loving you
And we’ll laugh together here in paradise
So, melt my heart forever and make my dreams come true
As long as songs have rhyme, and Hawaiian skies are blue

As long as the bays are full, and the days are passing by
I’ll still be here loving you
And we’ll laugh together here in paradise
So, melt my heart forever and make my dreams come true
As long as songs have rhyme, and Hawaiian skies are blue



I’ll Return To You (Larry W. Jones 05/27/2003) (song#1547)

There’s an island to where I must return
There it’s peaceful and the wind blows free
My love is on the island to where I must return
My heart is there forever, in the peaceful sea

Aloha ‘oe, I can hear the island call
Please return, please return
Where the peaceful tradewinds blow
Aloha ‘oe, my love has called to me
Please return to me

I left my love on the island
And my heart has ever yearned
For the one I’m dreaming of
On an island to where I must return
Aloha ‘oe, Aloha ‘oe
I’ll return to you, return to you, return to you



Dance My Way (Larry W. Jones 05/27/2003) (song#1548)

When island guitars start to play
Come over and dance my way
Like the flooding tide that finds the shore
Dance my way once more

Like a hula tree sways in the breeze
Dance my way, pretty please
I like the way you romance with me
So, just say aloha and dance with me

You’re the prettiest girl on the floor
I could never ask for more
And you have those island magic eyes
So, dance my way in romance paradise

When island guitars start to play
Come over and dance my way
Like the flooding tide that finds the shore
Dance my way once more



That Little Thing Island Love (Larry W. Jones 05/27/2003) (song#1549)

If you hear ukulele tunes, but there’s no island there
If you smell the fragrance in the air
Of blossoms in her hair
But there’s nobody there
You may wonder what’s going on
Are you alone in some mystic tropic zone

If you keep skipping all your lunches
And you keep drinking more fruit punches
And the moon that used to be above
Now is in your eyes with beams of love
You may wonder what’s going on
Are you alone in some mystic tropic zone

You don’t need a doctor, it’s really not a shocker
That you feel like eating poi and rice
If your heart is beating faster, and your mind is a disaster
You need to find an island paradise
There’s not a thing to worry of, it’s just a story of
That little thing that we call island love

You don’t need a doctor, it’s really not a shocker
That you feel like eating poi and rice
If your heart is beating faster, and your mind is a disaster
You need to find an island paradise
There’s not a thing to worry of, it’s just a story of
That little thing that we call island love


Sweet Maile Lei (Larry W. Jones 05/27/2003) (song#1550)

The day you gave to me
The lei you made for me
And then that moonlit night
When all the world was right
At Waikiki

An island guitar symphony
And stars that weren’t too few
It was a lovely melody
Under such a lovely moon
At Waikiki

The memories I have of you
Are all I’m thinking of
And the sweet perfume I knew
Reminds me of your love

Until the day that I return
I’l wait and hope and pray
You’ll save your love that I so yearn
And I’ll save your sweet maile lei



Diamonds Over Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 05/27/2003) (song#1551)

There’s a full moon in the islands
And a lei of starlit diamonds over Hawaii
Steel guitars waft upon the sand
Where the lazy shore kisses the sea

Tradewinds whisper through the palms
That only here you’ll find such balm
For only here you’ll solve the mystery
Of the dreams that haunt your memory

My Hawaii, dear Hawaii
I hear your call from the peaceful sea
Your full moon is a heavenly work of art
There’s a lei of starlit diamonds over Hawaii
And a treasure deep within my heart

Tradewinds whisper through the palms
That only here you’ll find such alms
For only here you’ll solve the mystery
Of the dreams that haunt your memory

My Hawaii, dear Hawaii
I hear your call from the peaceful sea
Your full moon is a heavenly work of art
There’s a lei of starlit diamonds over Hawaii
And a treasure deep within my heart



Waves Upon The Reef (Larry W. Jones 05/27/2003) (#1552)

Where the sky of blue meets the deep abyss
I hear the booming of the waves upon the reef
And when you and I share that sweetest kiss
I feel the beating of your heart here by the reef

It feels just like they say
Sometimes in unbelief
But I know our love is here to stay
Strong as the waves upon the reef

That’s the reason why I know
Why my heart feels such relief
Our island love will always grow
Strong as the waves upon the reef

It feels just like they say
Sometimes in unbelief
But I know our love is here to stay
Strong as the waves upon the reef

That’s the reason why I know
Why my heart feels such relief
Our island love will always grow
Strong as the waves upon the reef



As We Stroll Together (Larry W. Jones 05/27/2003) (song#1553)

When the sun goes down on Lahaina town
Island magic begins to unfold
The full moon rises and looks around
And moonbeams turn the sea to gold

The gentle breeze is there to please
Every loving woman and island man
And the heavens above are there to tease
All the lovers strolling in the sand

Oh, Leilani, come go with me
We’ll listen to the guitar bands
I’ll sing you a song down by the sea
As we stroll together in the island sand

My sailing days will be no more
They’re gone forever with the ebbing tide
With my Leilani, I’ll stroll the shore
Arm in arm with her by my side

Oh, Leilani, come go with me
We’ll listen to the guitar bands
I’ll sing you a song down by the sea
As we stroll together in the island sand

When the sun goes down on Lahaina town
Island magic begins to unfold
The full moon rises and looks around
And moonbeams turn the sea to gold

Oh, Leilani, come go with me
We’ll listen to the guitar bands
I’ll sing you a song down by the sea
As we stroll together in the island sand



The Cane Grew Tall (Larry W. Jones 05/27/2003) (song#1554)

Four sharp sickles in the cane fields swinging
Through the hot island sun and the rain
Four brown men who were strong and singing
All day long on the island cutting sugar cane

I was number four, who could want for more
My sharp siclke laid the cane down easily
No matter the chore, my heart did soar
There by the shore in cane fields by the sea

It’s an island story, now that time is o’re me
Since I was that young man long ago
Those days were happy when I was carefree
And the cane grew tall where the tradewinds blow

Like fleeting spies, the wings of butterflies
Danced before my eyes in their sweet domain
Back then I remember when it was paradise
Singing island songs in fields of sugar cane

It’s an island story, now that time is o’re me
Since I was that young man long ago
Those days were happy when I was carefree
And the cane grew tall where the tradewinds blow



Song Upon The Wind (Larry W. Jones 05/27/2003) (song#1555)

I strolled all alone through the island sand
Remembering my fond memories
Her voice came from the sea upon the wind
Like a song of island love for me
A song of island love for me

Island days were long and our love was strong
She swore she would marry me
As I went along I would hear her song
Her song of island love for me
Her song of island love for me

The rain blew cold the night he stole
My true love away from me
He might as well have taken my very soul
My true love has wed another across the sea
My true love has wed another across the sea

Her song of love haunts my memories
Of island love meant for her and me
Or maybe her song is telling me
It was love that wasn’t meant to be
It was love that wasn’t meant to be



My Own Lovely Isle (Larry W. Jones 05/27/2003) (song#1556)

How often my memories soar into flight
To the isle of my childhood days
To the ways of ohana when love conquered might
Before I knew such days might fade
My heart then was free as the breezes that blew
Through the palm trees that made life worthwhile
There as a boy I sang songs that I knew
On the shores of my own lovely isle

It was the springtime of life as days went along
I remember all those lazy hours
And the girl of my dreams, sweet as a song
Wearing in her hair a red hibiscus flower
When the sun sank slowly into the sea
The moon would arise with it’s smile
With lovebeams upon my love and me
On the shores of my own lovely isle

What joys will be mine if ever I find
The time to return to that lovely shore
I would stroll in the sand and ease my mind
With the beauty of my own isle once more
I’ll watch the sun sink into the sea
And watch the moon arise with it’s smile
The moon will shine lovebeams on my love and me
On the shores of my own lovely isle



My True Love’s Eyes (Larry W. Jones 05/27/2003) (song#1557)

Dark is the color of my true love’s eyes
Polynesian face and brown skin so fair
She’s the loveliest girl in all paradise
With a fragrant lei and a flower in her hair

I love this girl where tradewinds there blows
And we stroll the sand in the sun
Our love is strong and one day she knows
Her life and mine will be one

Dark is the color of my true love’s eyes
Polynesian face and brown skin so fair
She’s the loveliest girl in all paradise
With a fragrant lei and a flower in her hair

I love this girl where the full moon at night
Show two shadows as one on the sand
Her kiss is the best when under moon light
She’s my sweet love and I’m her island man

Dark is the color of my true love’s eyes
Polynesian face and brown skin so fair
She’s the loveliest girl in all paradise
With a fragrant lei and a flower in her hair



Never Fading Away (Larry W. Jones 05/27/2003) (song#1558)

Our paths crossed but once on that sandy shore
Your smile was so sweet and I wanted more
We strolled hand in hand in that magic place
And still in my mind is your lovely face
Never fading away through time and space

This song I will sing, I’ll sing it aloud
I’ll call out your name as I have avowed
And if islands call out to you in the wind
It will be the call from my heart, calling again
Never fading away from what might have been

Holding you tightly as only true lovers know
I think of you nightly here where tradewinds blow
We said Aloha ‘oe as you sailed away
Tears of our parting still fall on my face
Never fading away for a smile to replace

This song I will sing, I’ll sing it aloud
I’ll call out your name as I have avowed
And if islands call out to you in the wind
It will be the call from my heart, calling again
Never fading away from what might have been
Never fading away from what might have been



Fifteen Shades Of Gold (Larry W. Jones 05/27/2003) (song#1559)

As I close my eyes I see those golden sandy shores
From the little isle of Ni’ihau to the big island so bold
I miss all the golden treasures that I knew before
The yellow moon and setting sun’s fifteen shades of gold

But most of all I miss a girl in old Lahaina town
I miss her lips and her love for my arms to enfold
I long to be with her and see, in her wedding gown
The yellow moon and setting sun’s fifteen shades of gold

I yearn to spend a little time on old Lahaina’s golden shore
Once more to sing those island songs we sang of old
To hear again talk stories of the island times of yore
And the yellow moon and setting sun’s fifteen shades of gold

But most of all I miss a girl in old Lahaina town
I miss her lips and her love for my arms to enfold
I long to be with her and see, in her wedding gown
The yellow moon and setting sun’s fifteen shades of gold



Sweet Was The Rose (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2003) (song#1560)

Come back to the isle my sweet island child
Come back to the love that’s waiting for you
From over wild oceans to islands so mild
Your love and your dreams can still come true

Sweet was the rose on tropic isle grows
Fresh as the dew that from heaven falls
Her love was true as heaven knows
My island rose was the sweetest of all

On warm island sand is where we strolled
She said that she would leave me never
There on the island our lives would unfold
And she would be my true love forever

Sweet was the rose on tropic isle grows
Fresh as the dew that from heaven falls
Her love was true as heaven knows
My island rose was the sweetest of all

But now my dreams have been torn apart
I know not if she will return ever
My dreams are over the ocean, lost with no chart
For my island rose has gone forever

Sweet was the rose on tropic isle grows
Fresh as the dew that from heaven falls
Her love was true as heaven knows
My island rose was the sweetest of all



My Maui Isle (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2003) (song#1561)

Maui isle, Maui isle
Prettiest island by a country mile
Island folks there will make you smile
On Maui isle, my Maui isle

I’m here alone and it just ain’t right
My Maui isle is out of sight
I’ve gotta get me on that flight
To Maui isle, my Maui isle

This mainland city ain’t old Lahaina town
This old place has got me feelin’ down
I know a place where love is still in style
On Maui isle, my Maui isle

If that plane don’t come in awhile
I’ll board an ocean liner and sail in style
And count off the nautical miles
To Maui isle, my Maui isle

Eatin’ hamburgers full of soy ain’t for me
I need fish and poi for this island boy, you see
And I need a lifestyle that’s worthwhile
On Maui isle, my Maui isle

Outside my door, people just want more and more
I’ve had enough of this to last awhile
Just get me back to my simple style
On Maui isle, my Maui isle



Golden Dreams Of Blue Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2003) (song#1562)

Golden are my dreams of blue Hawaii
Islands where all dreams come true
Golden are my dreams of blue Hawaii
And golden are my days of loving you

Islands in the sun are as warm as gold
And because of you, my heart is never blue
My love for you is one that won’t grow cold
And golden are my days of loving you

Golden are my dreams of blue Hawaii
Sunsets strolling in the sand with you
Golden are my dreams of blue Hawaii
Golden memories when the day is through

The moon is gold when it beams upon the sea
Dreams unfold when you are here with me
Stars are like a diamond necklace made for you
And golden are my nights of loving you

Golden are my dreams of blue Hawaii
Islands where all dreams come true
Golden are my dreams of blue Hawaii
And golden are my days of loving you



A Tulip Blossom Grew (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2003) (song#1563)

A blossom grew upon a tulip tree
The fragrance was as sweet as it could be
Old fables mostly lie
But this one was made for you
A tulip blossom grows for lips that are untrue

A blossom grew upon a tulip tree
The fragrance was as sweet as it could be
Then I saw you kiss somebody else instead of me
Old fables mostly lie
But this one was made for you
A tulip blossom grows for lips that are untrue

Our love was like a song
Oh, where did it go wrong
What happened to the dreams that we once knew
Old fables mostly lie
But this one was made for you
A tulip blossom grew for two lips that were untrue

Old fables mostly lie
But this one was made for you
A tulip blossom grew for two lips that were untrue



Tradewind Of Aloha ‘Oe (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2003) (song#1564)

The tradewind breeze will blow wherever it pleases
It drifts along without a care
The tradewind breeze whispers that our love now ceases
It says to me that your love is no longer there

The tradewind breeze is whispering Aloha ‘oe
Goodbye to dreams that were not meant to be
Dreams were drifting away without my knowing
On the tradewind breeze that said goodbye to you and me

Those dreams we shared were like an island song
That always seemed to say that you and I belong
I thought they were sure as lovebeams from the moon
But now that song sounds like a mournful tune

The tradewind breeze is whispering Aloha ‘oe
Goodbye to dreams that were not meant to be
Dreams were drifting away without my knowing
On the tradewind breeze that said goodbye to you and me

Dreams were drifting away without my knowing
On the tradewind breeze that said goodbye to you and me



Yellow Gold And Midnight Velvet Blue (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2003) (song#1565)

It’s yellow gold and midnight velvet blue
When the tropic moon brings a love your way
It’s yellow gold and midnight velvet blue upon the bay
When you meet an island love that’s true

The legend says that the moon was pale and blue
In a midnight velvet sky with nothing else to do
Then an island boy met an island girl there by the sea
And found a love that would last them endlessly

The island boy looked into her loving eyes
And saw love that was pure as gold in paradise
And when they kissed, it came as no surprise
The moon had turned to gold in midnight velvet skies

And so it goes, the legend came to pass
An island boy fell in love with a lovely island lass
And if you find a true love underneath a tropic moon
It’s yellow gold and midnight velvet blue

And so it goes, the legend came to pass
An island boy fell in love with a lovely island lass
And if you find a true love underneath a tropic moon
It’s yellow gold and midnight velvet blue



Wanting You In Dreams (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2003) (song#1566)

Never will I stop wanting you
Makes no difference what you do
This desire I have for you
Is a fire that will burn til time is through

Never will I stop wanting you
Even when eternity is through
As long as there are islands in the streams
That’s how long I’ll be wanting you in dreams

The moon shines on southere seas so full
In the darkness of the night when day is through
So, like the tides, I’ll always feel the pull
On my heartstrings when I’m wanting you

Never will I stop wanting you
Even when eternity is through
As long as there are islands in the streams
That’s how long I’ll be wanting you in dreams
That’s how long I’ll be wanting you in dreams



Hawaiian Brokenhearted Blues (Larry W. Jones 05/28/2003) (song#1567)

Your arms that once were full, are now empty
You play Waimanalo Blues, jukebox thinks you abuse it
That is just the starting, what a pity
Your heart is just now learning how to use it
Those Hawaiian brokenhearted blues

The fragrant lei she gave you was just like any other
It only reminds you of her, and the love you still have for her
Like a tiki torch whose flame is burning blue
Your heart is just now learning how to use
Those Hawaiian brokenhearted blues

When you stroll the warm sand at night alone
The blues will control your memory
Waimanalo Blues will be your constant song
As you dream of love that wasn’t meant to be

There’ll be times when you won’t be sleeping
Don’t bother countin’ sheep
You can’t escape when shadows come a-creeping
You’ve got something you didn’t choose
Those Hawaiian brokenhearted blues

When you stroll the warm sand at night alone
The blues will control your memory
Waimanalo Blues will be your constant song
As you dream of love that wasn’t meant to be

There’ll be times when you won’t be sleeping
Don’t bother countin’ sheep
You can’t escape when shadows come a-creeping
You’ve got something you didn’t choose
Those Hawaiian brokenhearted blues

You’ve got something you didn’t choose
Those Hawaiian brokenhearted blues



Only Recently (Larry W. Jones 05/29/2003) (song #1568)

Only recently, I find increasingly, I’m seeing many brand new stars
I’m hearing more of those steel guitars
Like someone who’s fallen for that island love
Recently I’m in profound love
And I’ve found that it’s when you’re around

Only recently, I find increasingly, my feet have sprouted wings
Strings of my heart are tuned in time with soft Maui chimes
Each time I look into you eyes, I’m in paradise
Recently I’m in profound love
Like someone who’s fallen for that island love

Recently I’m in profound love
Like someone who’s fallen for that island love

Only recently, I find increasingly, my feet have sprouted wings
Strings of my heart are tuned in time with soft Maui chimes
Each time I look into you eyes, I’m in paradise
Recently I’m in profound love
Like someone who’s fallen for that island love



A Magnificient Thing (Larry W. Jones 05/29/2003) (song#1569)

Island love is a magnificient kind of thing
It’s the moon above
That brings love on a magic swing
Island love is the only way of living
That makes the hearts of man and woman keep on giving

Once, on an island by the old mill stream
The moon stood still
While two hearts shared their dreams
Then your lips touched mine
And made a simple island man become a king

Once, on an island by the old mill stream
The moon stood still
While two hearts shared their dreams
Then your lips touched mine
And made a simple island man become a king

Island love is a magnificient kind of thing
Island love is a magnificient kind of thing



Memories Are Nice (Larry W. Jones 05/29/2003) (song #1570)

Sweet was the fragrant lei you gave to me
Sweet as the memories we made there by the sea

Take one full and yellow moon
And one night with love in bloom
An island girl, island boy, raised on rice and poi
Memories are nice when filled with island joy

Don’t forget the stars in June
Mix in some dreams, and soon
One kiss, like wine, one love, divine
Memories are nice when they’re yours and mine

Soon there’ll be a wedding dress
For a love that’s been island blessed
Hand in hand we’ll stroll down by the bay
And savor love where palm trees sway
That’s the kind of love the breeze caresses

When the stars shine from above
They’ll guide us in our island love
An island girl, island boy, raised on rice and poi
Memories are nice when filled with island joy

An island girl, island boy, raised on rice and poi
Memories are nice when filled with island joy



Lei Of Island Love (Larry W. Jones 05/29/2003) (song#1571)

As I look at the lei that you gave to me
You know that it’s you I’m dreaming of
As I stroll the sand where we used to meet
I remember our lei of island love

I dream of you, Leilani, at the end of every day
When I look at the moon that shines above
My heart is still beating, for only you
I remember our lei of island love

Those sweet times are gone, gone from paradise
Gone with the dreams that we once had
It was sweet as Maui chimes, but now my heart is sad
I remember our lei of island love

I dream of you, Leilani, at the end of every day
When I look at the moon that shines above
My heart is still beating, for only you
I remember our lei of island love



That Old Lahaina Moon (Larry W. Jones 06/02/2003) (song#1572)

When I’m holding you, something in your eyes here by the sea
Soon begins entrancing me
It’s that old Lahaina moon that’s shining in the skies
That old Lahaina moon that’s dancing in your eyes

Your lovely smile is made to beguile a heart like mine
And it’s so worthwhile to be in love with someone who’s so divine

My heart is ridin’ high as the highest tide
Residing in the island love that you provide
It’s that old Lahaina moon that’s shining in the skies
That old Lahaina moon that’s dancing in your eyes

My heart is ridin’ high as the highest tide
Residing in the island love that you provide
It’s that old Lahaina moon that’s shining in the skies
That old Lahaina moon that’s dancing in your eyes



Dreams And You (Larry W. Jones 06/02/2003) (song#1573)

Dreams and you come from somewhere in the night
Dreams and you make all darkness turn to light
Dreams and you, an island song, lifts my heart anew
And fills my days and nights with dreams and you

Dreams and you have brought about this change of mine
It must be true, our love was by design
When we stroll the sand, I understand, just as I’m sure you do
Here in Hawaii blue, dreams do come true, dreams and you

Dreams and you have brought about this change of mine
It must be true, our love was by design
When we stroll the sand, I understand, just as I’m sure you do
Here in Hawaii blue, dreams do come true, dreams and you

Here in Hawaii blue, dreams do come true, dreams and you
Here in Hawaii blue, dreams do come true, dreams and you



Lonely Island Night (Larry W. Jones 06/02/2003) (song#1574)

Went to a luau show
Down where the tradewinds blow
Hula girls dancing in the moonlight
Another lonely island night

Made my usual stop down by the sea
See what was going on in Waikiki
Couples laughing with delight
Another lonely island night

I even thought, the wine that I bought
Would get you off my mind for awhile
But listen honey, the world’s still not sunny
The sun doesn’t shine for me on the isle

Gonna have to call on the coconut wireless
Dial nine one one for heart distress-ness
Until you turn this dark to light
Another lonely island night

Until you turn this dark to light
Another lonely island night



My Heart Wants Yours (Larry W. Jones 06/02/2003) (song#1575)

Sincerely, I mean it so dearly
My love for you is seen so clearly
That my heart wants yours to be mine

Sincerely, my love for you is ever true
Please help me stop this dreaming, too
Cause my heart wants yours to be mine

Here where soft breezes blow, why is my heart crying so
She thinks I’m just a luau side show
Oh, how can I let her really know
That I love her so

Sincerely, my love for you is ever true
Please help me stop this dreaming, too
Cause my heart wants yours to be mine

Here where soft breezes blow, why is my heart crying so
She thinks I’m just a luau side show
Oh, how can I let her really know
That I love her so

Sincerely, my love for you is ever true
Please help me stop this dreaming, too
Cause my heart wants yours to be mine
Cause my heart wants yours to be mine



That Old Maui Town (Larry W. Jones 06/02/2003) (song#1576)

Let’s go to that old Maui town and tell the people there
We’ll sing it underneath the moon above
Let’s go to old Lahaina town where love is in the air
And tell them of our brand new island love

I’ll write down the lines that rhyme
And we’ll write some music sweet as Maui chimes
We’ll send brand new wedding invitations right away
For that old Maui town where palm trees gently sway

When you stroll arm in arm with me
By the shore where everything is right
I want everyone in that old Maui town to see
How lovely heaven is in brand new dreams tonight

In old Lahaina town where everything is right
We’ll sing it underneath the moon above
Sweet as Maui chimes in that old Maui town tonight
And let them know that I’m in love with you



Island Work Of Art (Larry W. Jones 06/03/2003) (song#1577)

I felt so alone, so lonesome before
Before you arrived on the isle
And made the tropic sun smile
Now that you and I are on the same shore

Soft, soft was the breeze
And warm, warm were your lips there to please
Strolling together on the shore
Your kiss told me that love was in store

A stop over in Waikiki, a tropical scene
Just a stroll down the beach, and nothing more
Then I glanced into your eyes and found paradise
And an island love standing there on the shore

Fading fast was the tropic sun
Beating fast was my happy heart
And then when that Waikiki sun had set and day was done
I knew I had found a lovely island work of art



Gone On The Breeze (Larry W. Jones 06/03/2003) (song#1578)

Gone on the breeze
Like a flower blossom adrift on the bay
Gone on the breeze
My love has drifted away

Yesterday’s kisses still taste like wine
The love that I had, I thought would last for all time

But now my love has gone
And gone are the dreams
Slipped from my hand
Gone on the breeze, lost in island sand

Her love still burns in my heart
Like a tiki torch flame, burning so bright
Oh, why did she go, our love now to part
Gone on the breeze, nowhere in sight
Gone on the breeze, nowhere in sight



Old Father Time (Larry W. Jones 06/03/2003) (song#1579)

I took a trip on an ocean ship
Thought I could slip away from your memory
I looked out the window pane of the silver plane
But all I saw was the pain of your leaving me

I hopped on a streetcar named desire
That was a mistake for sure
I jumped from the pan into the fire
The fire of love doesn’t have a cure

I took a drive by our old lover’s lane
I must have been insane
A few cars were there underneath the stars
But we were apart like Venus and Mars

What must I do ease my troubled mind
A soft island breeze would just be unkind
I guess I’ll talk to old father time
Cause that’s how long you’ll be on my mind

What must I do ease my troubled mind
A soft island breeze would just be unkind
I guess I’ll talk to old father time
Cause that’s how long you’ll be on my mind



Got You On My Mind (Larry W. Jones 06/03/2003) (song#1580)

I’ve got you on my mind
I’ve got you deep in my memory
So deep in my memory, I forget to sleep
I’ve got you on my mind

I’ve tried to not waste so much time
I even said to myself
Myself you’ve got better things to do
But my heart is lonely on the shelf
Cause I’m so in love with you
I’ve got you on my mind

I’d stroll the sand forever, every night
Just in hopes that you’d be there
Even though I know that you might stay out of sight
I’d still carry a flower for your hair

I’ll play it cool, be a fool and blind
I’ll tell myself it’s just a matter of time
When you’ll come back with sweet ties that bind
I’ve got you on my mind

I’ll tell myself it’s just a matter of time
When you’ll come back with sweet ties that bind
I’ve got you on my mind



Dark Of The Moon (Larry W. Jones 06/03/2003) (song#1581)

Too soon came the dark of the moon
Too soon, the month of June has gone
September leaves are on the lawn
The island breeze is far away
Yet, in my heart, I hnow I have to say

It’s not the leaves of September
It’s all the things that I remember
About you
The way you wore the flower in your hair
The way your love was in the air
That makes me remember, like a mournful tune
Too soon came the dark of the moon

Now the winds are blowing cold from off the sea
But I still hear our love song on a tropic breeze
And though I know I’m making make believe
I try to show that my mind doesn’t have to grieve
Yet in my heart, I know I have to say

It’s not the leaves of September
It’s all the things that I remember
About you
The way you wore the flower in your hair
The way your love was in the air
That makes me remember, like a mournful tune
Too soon came the dark of the moon
Too soon came the dark of the moon



Little Classy Grass Shack (Larry W. Jones 06/03/2003) (song#1582)

It’s just a little grass shack
On the beach where the tide is slack
It’s roof is all grassy
But to me it’s first classy

And even though my little grass shack
On the beach where the tide is slack
Might for a king’s ransom lack
It’s still calling me back today

If I were a king, I’d give up everything
For my little grass shack with a roof that’s all grassy
To me it’s worth more than anything
Cause it holds my queen, my little island lassie

She’s a little island lass with a lot of class
And for love, there’s nothing to lack
It’s just a little grass shack
On the beach where the tide is slack
It’s still calling me back today

It’s just a little grass shack
On the beach where the tide is slack
It’s still calling me back today



In The Dusky Twilight (Larry W. Jones 06/03/2003) (song#1583)

In the dusky twilight
With all the shadows coming through
The tropic moon arises in its night flight
Again my thoughts are comprised of only you

In the dusky twilight
When the world is winding down
It doesn’t seem quite right
To dream of you in some other island town

I wonder if you still love me
Half as much as I still love you tonight
Or will my dream fade into the night
When the moon arises hauntingly
In the dusky twilight

In the dusky twilight
With all the shadows coming through
The tropic moon arises in its night flight
Again my thoughts are comprised of only you

I wonder if you still love me
Half as much as I still love you tonight
Or will my dream fade into the night
When the moon arises hauntingly
In the dusky twilight

Or will my dream fade into the night
When the moon arises hauntingly
In the dusky twilight



Not Just A Little Thing (Larry W. Jones 06/03/2003) (song#1584)

It was not just a crazy island fling
It was not just a little thing
Funny how it made the wedding bells ring
To me it wasn’t just a little thing

It was not some special luau night
It was Thursday but the timing was right
The moon was shining forth its golden beams
To me it wasn’t just a little thing

We didn’t know how it all would end
When we strolled in the moonlight at Waikiki
We didn’t know that love would just begin
And last forever for you and me

It was not just a crazy island fling
It was not just a little thing
Funny how it made the wedding bells ring
To me it wasn’t just a little thing

It was not just a little thing
Funny how it made the wedding bells ring
To me it wasn’t just a little thing



That Luau Show (Larry W. Jones 06/03/2003) (song#1585)

It must have been that luau show
Way over in Hawaii blue
It must have been that luau show
That brought love to me and you

I still see you swaying
To the music from the band
I remember when you were saying
That I could be your island man

It seemed like we were dancing in the air
I remember giving you a flower for your hair
It was such a dreamy beginning
For such a lovely love affair

And now when there’s a luau show
Way over in Hawaii blue
Somehow I just know
It must have been that luau show
That brought love to me and you

It must have been that luau show
That brought love to me and you



Somewhere In My Dreams (Larry W. Jones 06/04/2003) (song#1586)

When the sun’s rays have gone
And birds of paradise are sleeping
When the sun’s rays have gone
Into my dreams you come creeping
And the light of your love there beams
Somewhere in my dreams

My dream is to be where you are
When the sun’s rays have gone and we’re all alone
My dream is to follow your star
Across oceans far away, to love I’ve never known

Tonight, as the sun fades into twilight
Oh, tell me our love will never drift from sight

My dream, and the love that you give
Will be the same, no matter where we live
And you’ll always be supreme
Somewhere in my dreams



A Lovely Luau Evening (Larry W. Jones 06/04/2003) (song#1587)

On a lovely luau evening
Love brought the sweetest thing
When I danced with you, I knew
This wouldn’t be just a casual island fling

It was an island evening made for singing
Those soft Maui chimes were ringing
My dreams were coming true
On a lovely luau evening rendezvous

You and I in the tropic moonlight
We strolled the sand amid the island charms
On a lovely luau evening
I held you tenderly in my arms

Now when the days fade into night
And I feel like dreaming too
When the tropic moon is shining bright
I remember a lovely luau evening, and you



Balmy Tradewind Breeze (Larry W. Jones 06/04/2003) (song#1588)

Balmy tradewind breeze, lovely valley stream
Bluebirds flying by
Island boy and girl in love
Right here in paradise

Swaying hula trees waving pleasantly
Aloha means hello and not goodbye
Island boy and girl in love
With starlight in their eyes

I’ve heard of love like this, forever and a day
Never thought that I would find it, come what may
I didn’t know just what to say
When I met you there by that lovely bay

In future years we’ll remember when
And wonder how it all began
This love we have that came with such ease
How island love began with a balmy tradewind breeze



Dream Coming True (Larry W. Jones 06/04/2003) (song#1589)

Yesterday you were with somebody who
Left you to cry and left for somebody new
How could someone be such a fool
But I’m glad cause now my dream’s coming true

We’ll go strolling down by the shore
I could never ask for anything more sweet
We’ll stop by that little Waikiki store
Where we’ll make some plans and rest our feet

A little relaxation will do you good
You’re quite a sensation, should be in Hollywood
But I’m glad you’re an island girl with lovely eyes
You’re my dream that’s coming true in paradise

And if it’s not too soon for future plans
I’d like to think ahead and be your island man
I hope it doesn’t seem too soon for you
Cause you’re my island dream that’s coming true



Love True (Larry W. Jones 06/04/2003) (song#1590)

When I dream of you, do you dream of me
With island love, love true
Could we make our dreams forever be
Island love, love true
Here in Hawaii blue

For we both see that rainbow’s end
And we know just what to do
We’ll love forever with our dreams, and then
We’ll just have to start anew
Here in Hawaii blue

When I dream of you, do you dream of me
Could we make our dreams forever be
Island love, love true

For we both see that rainbow’s end
And we know just what to do
We’ll love forever with our dreams, and then
We’ll just have to start anew
Here in Hawaii blue



A Zephyr Breeze (Larry W. Jones 06/04/2003) (song#1591)

Oh, the tropic wind is a zephyr breeze
A zepher breeze that longs to ramble
And he was born for the distant seas
The distant seas of a zephyr breeze

In a little grass shack off the beaten track
He spent his island days
His heart was seized by a zephyr breeze
And it made him a slave to his sailor’s ways

Oh, I met him where love was in the air
He was a sailor from distant ports
I cried so much when he left me there
Now I’m alone in this island resort

Oh, the tropic wind is a zephyr breeze
A zepher breeze that longs to ramble
And he was born for the distant seas
The distant seas of a zephyr breeze

The distant seas of a zephyr breeze



Island Love Today (Larry W. Jones 06/04/2003) (song#1592)

Island love is for the young at heart
The moon up in the sky is there for you
Island love is very special from the start
Aloha and a smile tells you this love is true

There down by a lovely bay
You may exchange some flowers
A flower for her hair and arrange a fragrant lei

But island love may not be there forever
So, if you find your island love, don’t wait until never

There down by a lovely bay
You may exchange some flowers
A flower for her hair and arrange a fragrant lei

But island love may not be there forever
So, if you find your island love, don’t wait until never
Take care of your island love today



I Found My Island (Larry W. Jones 06/04/2003) (song#1593)

Through all the islands I searched for you
I sailed alone through dark and dawn
To find a love that’s true
And an island girl to call my own

I knew that somewhere in the tropic air
I didn’t when or where or how
I would place a flower in her hair
And feel the love that I feel now

It could have been in Singapore
Or Manila bay or down Tahiti way
Or old Lahaina town’s sandy shore
Somewhere find you some sweet day

Now I don’t have to search the islands in the blue
Cause I found my island when I found you



Just Enchantment (Larry W. Jones 06/04/2003) (song#1594)


It was just enchantment, I know
Just a hint of romance where tradewinds blow
But I took a chance for a dance with you
And island romance turned into love so true

It might have ended before it got a start
But that would have broken my lonely heart
Aloha was spoken and island love began
Now you’re my girl and I’m your island man

It was just enchantment, I know
When my eye saw the glint of the moonlight above
But when I held you in my arms here below
Enchantment became true island love

It was just enchantment, I know
When my eye saw the glint of the moonlight above
But when I held you in my arms here below
Enchantment became true island love



Tradewinds By The Sea (Larry W. Jones 06/04/2003) (song#1595)

Out where the starlight is gleaming
The island draws you to its flame
You dance under the moonlight that’s beaming
While to me the tradewinds whisper your name

Tradewinds, can you hear me
Tradewinds by the sea
Tradewinds, will you cheer me
Or will love go with your breeze

Sometimes I wonder while I’m strolling
All alone down by the bay
If love is like the sea that’s rolling
And the tide when it’s drifting away

Tradewinds, can you hear me
Tradewinds by the sea
Tradewinds, will you cheer me
Or will love go with your breeze

The love that we had was like heaven
Now it seems that you’ve drifted from the shore
Love was a gamble of seven or eleven
And now I’ve lost your love for evermore

Tradewinds, can you hear me
Tradewinds by the sea
Tradewinds, will you cheer me
Or will love go with your breeze

Tradewinds, can you hear me
Tradewinds by the sea
Tradewinds, will you cheer me
Or will love go with your breeze



Lifetime Of Missing You (Larry W. Jones 06/04/2003) (song#1596)

You said that your love would last a lifetime
A true love straight from paradise
I trusted you when your lips met mine
I didn’t know that Aloha couls mean goodbye

I’m now alone in this tropic zone
With only these memories of mine
Though love has flown, your love I’ve known
Will last a lifetime of missing you

I’m now alone in this tropic zone
With only these memories of mine
Though love has flown, your love I’ve known
Sweet as Maui chimes
Will last a lifetime of missing you

Though love has flown, your love I’ve known
Sweet as Maui chimes
Will last a lifetime of missing you



From This Moment (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2003) (song#1597)

From this moment til the last
We’ll just take it slow, no need to go so fast
This I know, our love will be vast
From this moment til the last

Here by this peaceful bay
Aloha is what we’ll say, meaning love in every way
The kind of love that’s unsurpassed
From this moment til the last

Your love has got that island touch
Your’s is the kind I need so much
Your arms are there to hold me tight
Island love is in the air every night

From this moment til the last
When I’m with you alone, we’ll disconnect the phone
The future of our love has now been cast
From this moment til the last



Bright Mahealani Moon (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2003) (song#1598)

Mahealani Moon, so full tonight
Mahealani moon, famed are your beams so bright
Please be sure to bring her love real soon
I need your light of love, bright Mahealani moon

Mahealani moon, golden are your beams of love
Mahealani moon, precious is the one I’m dreaming of
Please shine your light of love this June
For we will wed underneath the bright Mahealani moon

Mahealani moon, so bright up in the sky
Mahealani moon, you shine down on paradise
Please play for us a moonlight tune
She’ll be mine real soon, bright Mahealani moon

Mahealani moon, golden are your beams of love
Mahealani moon, precious is the one I’m dreaming of
Please shine your light of love this June
For we will wed underneath the bright Mahealani moon
Oh, beautiful, bright Mahealani moon



Hawaiian Island Sun (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2003) (song#1599)

Hawaiian island sun, set with your glow tonight
Hawaiian island sun, bring forth your magic of twilight
Golden rays have come to paint the tropic skies
The Hawaiian island sun has set again in paradise

Magic is the way blue twilight shadows fall
The Hawaiian island sun has heard the moonlight call
When the day is done, I’ll be with my lovely one
In the twilight glow of the Hawaiian island sun

Hawaiian island sun, you bring me such delight
Hawaiian island sun, bring forth the magic of twilight
Two shadows on the sand are now merged into one
She gives to me her hand in the Hawaiian island sun

Magic is the way blue twilight shadows fall
The Hawaiian island sun has heard the moonlight call
Now that the day is done, I’m with my lovely one
In the twilight glow of the Hawaiian island sun

Now that the day is done, I’m with my lovely one
In the twilight glow of the Hawaiian island sun



Sixteen Hundred (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2003) (song#1600)

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

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