*optional stanza

Short, stocky and stout woman after a hard day at work
Press down, press down

Soft thigh filled with poi
Press down, press down

   
Short, stocky and stout woman of Honolulu
Press down, press down
Maybe you`re warming up, now
Press down, press down

 
Woman with skinny thighs, like a chicken
Press down, press down
Woman pulling in an ulua
*Full of poi, but wanting more
Press down, press down
 
Up and down, kicking like a mule
Press down, press down
Then calmly cuddling
Press down, press down
 
You must care for your feather lei
Press down, press down
Drenched by rain, wilted by splendor
Press down, press down
 
Tell the refrain
Press down, press down
Short, stocky and stout woman of Honolulu
Press down, press down
 
Tell the refrain
Press down, press down
Short, stocky and stout woman after a hard day at work
Press down, press down

*optional stanza
