There's a faraway Island neath the silvery moonlight
Just a paradise of dreams across the sea
There's a maiden all alone and still waitin'
On that old Hawaiian shore for me.

The tears they were falling and the nightbirds were calling
As the breeze that night waved through the air so free
The palmtrees were swaying south guitars were playing
Aloha where I dwell to be.

--- Instrumental ---

Happy lovers were strolling lazy waters were rolling
As my ship had sailed a drifted out to sea
The moon seemed to wonder as he watched from up yonder
When my darling waved the last goodbye to me.

When the shadows of twilight play with gold of the sunset
I'll be heading for that Isle where dreams come true
Mid that tropical splendor my heart will surrender
On that old Hawaiian shore with you.

The tears they were falling and the nightbirds were calling
As the breeze that night waved through the air so free
The palmtrees were swaying south guitars were playing
Aloha where I dwell to be...
