Mele Fong aka Ukulele Mele tells the behind hapa haole song My Little Grass Shack. Composed by Bill Cogswell, Tommy Harrison, and Johnny Noble in 1933, the song tells of a homesick Hawaiian wanting to return to Hawaii Island, where Hawaii’s state fish, the Humuhumunukunukuapuaa goes swimming by. The lyric “e komo no kaua ika hale wela ka hao” means “let’s you and I go in house while the time is right.” The song was a favorite at the Kodak Hula Show in Waikiki.
