Mama's Muʻumuʻu - Gene Burdette

 
Verse:
Some slaves of fashion bend the knee
To styles from gay Paree
While others bow to movie stars
The Czars of lingerie
But there's a hefty mama
Down in Honolulu
She`s set the fashion mob agog
With her brand new muʻumuʻu gown
 
Chorus 1:
Oh, you gotta see Mama's uʻi nui muʻumuʻu
When she's swinging along
The beach at Waikīkī
It's the biggest attraction
Down in Honolulu
Because its loaded with her personality
Mama's muʻumʻu's like a nightgown
With a bulge that's out of date
But she struts like Miss Hawaiʻi
At the age of sixty eight
Yes, you gotta see mama`s uʻi nui muʻumuʻu
It's the super duper drooper of the year
 
Chorus 2:
Oh, you gotta see Mama's uʻi nui muʻumuʻu
When she's doing the hula
Hula here and there
Mama's muʻumuʻu is driving
All the women coo-coo
'Cause it's the answer to a two-way girdle's prayer
When you're starving on a diet
And you'd like to eat a horse
Just take cover in a muʻumuʻu
And let nature take its course
Yes, you gotta see mama`s uʻi nui muʻumuʻu
It's the dapper flapper wrapper of the year
