That's The Hawaiian In Me
words by Margarita Lane music and special lyrics by John Noble
 
 
With a sky of blue over my head
And a sandy beach for my bed
I find happiness that's all my own
On an isle that I call home
 
I don't like shoes upon my feet,
To be at ease is such a treat
And smile to ev'ryone I meet,
That's the Hawaiian in me
 
I love to sing and dance for you,
And give a lei to cheer you thru
And with that goes a kiss or two,
That's the Hawaiian in me
 
It's great to be in Hawaii
And be a native too
But it's greater still to play around
And carry on as I do
 
So right out here in Hawaii,
Where ev'rything is heavenly
I'm just as happy as can be,
That's the Hawaiian in me
 
I like to surf the native way
And go out fishing ev'ry day
I take my pleasures where I may
That's the Hawaiian in me
I wear a flower on my ear,
It show I'm looking 'round my dear
So let's aloha while you're here
That's the Hawaiian in me
 
No pilikia, no huhu
That is my philosophy
If the sun is bright and the trade winds blow
The world is maikai to me
 
I have a ball in Hawaii
My paradise beside the sea
So live it up and be carefree
That's the Hawaiian in me
 
I like laulaus and lotsa poi
With good sashimi dipped in soy
So suck em up with me, my boy
That's the Hawaiian in me
 
I wear a crazy luau shirt
And glance at ev'ry hula skirt
It's natural for me to flirt
That's the Hawaiian in me
 
The tourists come from all the world
And they say it's marvelous
They're all trying hard to get a tan
Just so they can look like us
 
So I don't care how rich you are
One million, maybe two or three
I wouldn't change places, no siree
That's the Hawaiian in me
