VERSE 1: All day long some beautiful tunes I've been hearin',/ Oh they're so cheerin', They make me feel, so sentimental,/ I'm haunted all night and all day, With them/ I'm simply carried away with them,/ Oh, oh, they're got me on the gp, I know.
VERSE 2: Round my heart those beautiful tunes come a stealin', They're so appealin',/ I don't know why, I'm fallin' for them, Somehow I walk and I dance to them,/ I always talk and I prance to them,/ Oh, oh, they're got me on the go, I know./
CHORUS: I love to hear them play I love to hear them playin', Those Hawaiian melodies;/ There's nothing sweeter than the simple meter and their syncopated harmonies./ I love to hear an op're grand or a song from Dixie land,/ But somehow all I hum now Are the tunes from Honolu;/ For the Hawaiian rythm, that they carry with'em, has a charm that seems to please;/ They always set my heart a fire And I wish that I were down in Hawaiia,/ When I hear, oh, when I hear Those Hawaiian melodies.
