HONOLULU, AMERICA LOVES YOU
Lyrics: Grant Clarke, Eddie Cox Music: Jimmie V. Monaco
America loves you
We're telling you too---we do
You've made our poorest of families
Dance to you beautiful melodies...
Our milionaires are playing ukaleles too---
Your hula hula
Is very peculiar--
In cafes, nowadays , thats all they do...
Up in Boston where they eat those beans,
They know what Yacki Hula means
We've got to hand it to you......
You made the Yankees delighted
They dance and get all excited
We'll all be talking Hawaiian
You've got our orchestras playing
Morning, night and noon..
All that you hear them requesting,
Is a sweet Hawaiian tune
Mahalo to David D. Stone for these lyrics.
