I Want To Learn To Speak Hawaiian - words & music by Johnny Noble

I want to learn to speak Hawaiian
Then I can say the sweetest things to you
I want to learn to sing Hawaiian
So I can do the hula hula too
I've learned to say aloha nui oe
The sweetest little words I ever knew
And when I am a kamaaina
Its going to thrill me thru and thru
Honi kaua wikiwiki
They taught me on the beach at Waikiki
Welakahao meaning whoop-ee
I am learning them fast you can see
So after all what does it matter
If I should stutter on a word or two
I want to learn to speak Hawaiian
Cause I'm pupule, simply crazy over you
