South Sea Sadie - words & music by Don McDiarmid

 
On a tropical isle far across the sea
There in tropical style 'neath a mango tree
Lives a littel brown gal
Who is everybody's pal
Life to her is just a breeze
 
 
 
With a tropical flower in her long black hair
She's the girl of the hour on that island fair
She may wear an old sarong
But she doesn't wear it long
She's the siren of the seven seas
 
 
 
They call her Sadie
The little south sea lady
They say that Sadie is the reason
For the heavy tourist season
In the isles so many miles across the sea
 
 

The boys rise early
To see this streamlined girlie
For she's the principal attraction
When the gal goes into action
Reservations for vacations reach capacity
 
 
 
So if you're down in hula town
And you run across a certain little lady
With big brown eyes that tantalize
You can bet your botton coconut
The little girl is no one but
 
 
 
Sadie, the little south seas lady
Oh she's the pride of the Pacific
That wahine is terrific
Now you know why you should go to see
The sunny isles so many miles across the sea
 
 
 
Sadie, the little south seas lady
When Sadie rolls her vala vala
She's a very hot tamala
Now you know why you should go to see
The sunny isles so many miles across the sea
