Westward Ho! I'm restless there to go
Where the warm Hawaiian breezes blow
Where dark eyes glow, oh! beautiful island, Waikiki!
Your beach beseeches me
There is a reason I confess
Come on, giva a guess
Some girl? Yes!
Westward Ho! In quest of her I go
While the ukulele wails its tune
I'll honeymoon with my Kiluau
By way of old Frisco
The ukulele laid aside
Baby now her pride
Hail! my bride!
I lost my heart in Honolulu
Where the moonbeams kiss the ocean
There's the shrine of my devotion
One wond'rous night
One wond'rous maiden
Down on the glist'ning coral sand
I just held her hand, understand
Oh! midnight scene of tropic splendor
Undreamed of dreams, love glances tender
Had I a thousand hearts to lose, I'd lose them all
