Malihini Mele - words & music by R. Alex Anderson

 
As I strolled along the shore
In a muumuu made of koa
While I played a tune
On my sweet okolehao
 
 
And I sang a pretty song
As she danced her sweet kapu
With a wikwiki smile
And nui nui holoku
 
 
Pretty soon by the light of the tropical moon
A malihini did appear
And he strolled hand in hand
On the beautiful sand with a lovely pilikia
 
 
Then he softly told her how
He'd seen a great big bad luau
With a red opu
And great big hukilau
 
 
Humuhumunukunuku apuaa
Came swimming along
Singing a song
Kanes and wahines and even little keikis
Sing a hoomalimali and a welakahao
 
 
As I strolled along the shore
In a muumuu made of koa
While I played a tune
On my sweet okolehao
