lyrics

A little national geographic dedicated to our neighbors in the pacific...

Traveler, travelers, do a favor for me
on the beach by Waikiki
by the blue Hawaiian sea
Buy me, buy me something simple and sweet

Something I will always love
Something I’ve been dreaming of
Bring me a lei from Hawaii
I’ve wanted a lei for so long

I can’t get one here, they’re entirely too dear

but Hawaiians give lei’s for a song

Don’t bring me a short lei or one that’s too portly
and thin leis I don’t like at all
While you’re gone I will yearn, but when you return

I’ll be expecting a lei when you call

Leis, ladies and gentlemen 10 cents a lei
give your girl a lei mister i bet she’d love one
10 little pennies for one beautiful lei
Take one home to mother she’s not had one in a long time

If she doesn’t know what to do with it, she can put it around her neck
Leis ladies and gentlemen, leis for sale
Try this one over on your piano, leis look lovely on a piano

Some look better on a couch
and I’ve known a couple of peculiar people who like leis on the floor
and even a lei farmer fashion in the hay. (hey hey!)

It’s not a cultivated taste
like olives, it's natural
and even an old stale lei has a bit of reminiscent charm

Leis, ladies and gentlemen, 10 cents a lei

While you’re gone I will yearn,
but when you return,
I’ll be expecting that lei when you call
