Hilo Hattie Does the Hilo Hop - by Don McDiarmid, Sr & John Noble

 

                   D7
When Hilo Hattie does the Hilo Hop
 C7
There's not a bit of use for a traffic cop
    G7                       C7
For everything and everybody comes to a stop
 
When Hilo Hattie does the Hilo Hop
 
 
The sugar raises cane the palms trees sigh
The ukuleles fret and the birds won't fly
The Humuhumunukunukus stop swimming by
When Hilo Hattie does the Hilo Hop
 

Hui:

F7
That wahine has an opu
 
With a college education
G7
There's no motion she don't go thru
                   C7
She doesn't leave a thing to your imagination
 
 
Hattie does a dance no law would allow
A crater got a look and it's sizzling now
She'd better watch her step or everything will be pau
When Hilo Hattie does the Hilo Hop
 
 
They took Hattie to the hoosegow
Hattie went along quite gaily
She said "Oh judge, turn me loose now,
I'll do my dance while you play your ukulele."
 
 
Hattie should've died from too much gin
But she will never pay for her life of sin.
St. Peter's gonna take a look and say "come on in"
