I Lost My Heart To A Pāʻū Rider - Eaton Magoon, Jr.

I lost my heart to a pāʻū rider
She wore a kaunaʻoa lei
Her horse was dapple gray
Kamehameha Day in the parade

I lost my heart to a pāʻū rider
She wore a kaunaʻoa lei
She smiled and pranced away
Kamehameha Day in the parade

Chorus:
She was a princess from Lanaʻi
No matter how I tried
I couldn't get her eye
She was much too dignified

I lost my heart to a pāʻū rider
And here I'm going to stay
Till she comes back my way
Next Kamehameha Day in the parade
