White Ginger
words & music by R. Alex Anderson

 

White ginger blossoms
Cool and fragrant
Sweeter than the rose
Fairer too than moonlight
 
 
White ginger blossoms
From the mountains
Fill the thirsty air
With exotic fragrance rare
 
 
Round your lovely throat you wear my ginger lei
Each white petal nestles close and long to say
Let me stay here
 
 
White ginger blossoms
Cool and fragrant
By a mountain pool
Guard their sweetness all for you
