Ta Ha Ua La - by Alvin K. Isaacs


The Hawaiians never let a bit of worry, worry them (they never worry)
And they surely never ever let a hurry, hurry them (they never hurry)
They take it easy, real easy, easy
They never worry, they never hurry
They have proven life is worthwhile if you take it easy


The Hawaiians be happy with a kumu in your arm (`uhe`uhene)
No humuhumunukunuku but a kumu in your arms (`uhe`uhene)
You start to tease her
Then you squeeze her
You try and please her
And then embrace her
And all the time you’ll find it’s better if you take it easy


Ta ha ua la e ta hu ahu a`i la ha
`Uhe`uhene e `uhene la e pili to`o lua la ha `uhe`uhene
E `uhene la e `uhene la e `uhene la
E `uhene la e `uhene la e `uhene la
E `uhene e pili to`o lua laha
E `uhene la e pili to`o lua laha
`Uhe`uhene puti tu`i lu a ite tu`e tu`e laha
`Uhe`uhene puti tu`i lu
Puti tu`i lua, puti tu`i lua, puti tu`i lua
Puti tu`i lua ite to`e to`e e laha


Ha`ina `ia mai ana ka puana laha
`Uhe`uhene e ku`u mea ita hana hana pono laha
`Uhe`uhene e tu`u me`a hana
E tu`u me`a hana, e tu`u me`a hana
E tu`u me`a hana, e tu`u me`a hana
Ita hana hana pono laha ha
