My Tropical Hula Girl - Words & music by Sonny Cunha

 
The moon is shining bright
And there's going to be a hula tonight
Sure a hula tonight
At Waikīkī
Where the breakers they are rolling in high
Where they`re rolling in high
Where they`re rolling in high
  
All hula girlies in reach
Will be prancing up and down on the beach
Up and down on the beach,
They`ve nothing to do
But to paddle in their little canoe
In their little canoe
In their little canoe
  
Neath swaying cocoanut palms
With a hula hula girl in your arms
Sure a girl in your arms
Life`s simply sublime
When you're spooning in a tropical clime
In a tropical clime
In a tropical clime
  
And when you gaze in her eyes
She will quickly let you know she is wise
Let you know she is wise
So take it from me
Keep on spooning neath the cocoanut tree
Neath the cocoanut tree
Neath the cocoanut tree
 
She hula`s simply divine
You're a dummy if you dare to decline
If you dare to decline
She's out for a time
She can have it in a tropical clime
In a tropical clime
In a tropical clime
  
And when this hula is pau
You'll be feeling kind of wela ka hao
Kind of wela ka hao
And raving for more
When you have to leave this beautiful shore
Leave this beautiful shore
Leave this beautiful shore
