When she passes by, heads all turn and sign
There goes Kealoha
The gentle breezes sing a love song of her charms
Just for Kealoha
She is just a hula miss from those isles across the sea
With a dance that has that sway
When she glides across the sand with a smile upon her face
She can steal any heart away
Flowers blow their heads, the sun and moon and rain
All adore Kealoha
She’s a beauty from those isles, she’ll charm you with her wiles
That dancing, romancing, entrancing hula maiden Kealoha.
(Repeat song from top and end).
