A long time ago in a land far away
Lived the pineapple princess, Tiki
She was sweet as a peach, in a pineapple way,
But so sad she hardly speaky

Still, If you listen well,
You'll hear her secret wish.

(Aloha, everybody, my name is Tiki! )

I long to free a truly remarkable fish,
My sweet prince

Makihiki malahini-hoo
Humuhumunukunukuapua'a, Ooh.
Hawana wakawakawakaniki pu pu pu

(Ryan, the fog! )

She dreams of a boy, who is under a spell
That has left him all wet and scaly

[Sharpay and Ryan]
I sing from my heart of the power of love,
Just a girl with a ukulele.

Come to me, my sweet one, and be still
I'll grasp your tail and stroke each tender gill
My sweet prince.

Makihiki malahini-hoo
Humuhumunukunukua'Pua'A, Ooh.
Hawana wakawakawakaniki pu pu pu

[Ryan, Sharpay, and the Girls]
The clouds turned grey, and the big sky cried,
And the ocean had a fit.

(Ryan, where is my ocean! ? )

[Ryan, Sharpay, and the Girls]
Then the wind went whoosh, and thunder cracked,
And mighty mount Fufu spit.

Mighty Mount Fufu spit!

[Sharpay and Ryan]
T-T-T-Tiki T-Tiki
Wanna speaky, speaky, speaky with the mighty spirit Fufu
T-T-T-Tiki T-Tiki
Wanna speaky, speaky, speaky
So words I will not mince.


Please make a man of my fresh fish prince

His is real fish alk

Blub blub blub blub blub

[Sharpay singing in a male voice]
I'm Prince Humuhumunukunukuapua'A
Makahiki malahini hoo

(With me! )
Humuhumunukunukuapua'a, Ooh
Hawana wakawakawakaniki pu pu pu

Makihiki malahini-hoo
Humuhumunukunukuapua'a, Ooh.
Hawana wakawakawakaniki pu pu pu
Wakawakawakaniki pu pu pu
Wakawakawakaniki pu... pu... pu!

    Humuhumunukunukuapua'a, in hawaiian, means a fish with a nose like a pig. It is the fish of the hawaiian islands and can be found in the waters of nearly every beach there from what i've seen.
