Hawaii's callin'
When I hear the rhythm of the hula rock, hula rock.

In the South Pacific where the trade winds blow
They thought that the hula was a little bit slow
So they stepped it up with a go go go
And that's where they got that rock and roll.

In the South Pacific now
They're gettin' with it on the beach at Waikaki
And it's a lula when they try
The hula with a rockin' rollin' beat.

Rockin' and a rollin' in Waikaki
Rockin' and a rollin' in Waikaki
Rockin' and a rollin' in Waikaki
Rockin' and a rollin' in Waikaki
Don't stop just let her rock.

--- Instrumental ---

Take me back where the trade winds blow
To the land of the hula where they never get old
And the gooney birds dance with a go go go
And the natives join in with a rock and roll.

With me it's a riddle how they break in the middle
And yet stay on the beat
But I wanna sway with 'em when I hear
The rhythm of the rockin' hula beat.

--- Instrumental ---

Rockin' and a rollin' in Waikaki
Rockin' and a rollin' in Waikaki
Rockin' and a rollin' in Waikaki
Rockin' and a rollin' in Waikaki
Don't stop just let her rock.

Hawaii's callin'...
