Little Brown Gal    (1935)

It's not the islands fair that are calling to me
It's not the balmy air, nor the tropical sea
It's just a little brown gal in a little grass skirt
In a little grass shack in Hawaii

It isn't Waikiki nor Kamehameha's Pali
Not the Beach Boys free with their ho'omalimali
It's just a little brown gal in a little grass skirt
In a little grass shack in Hawaii

Through that island wonderland
She's broken all the Kanes' hearts
It's not hard to understand
For that Wahini is a gal apart

I'll be leaving soon, but the thrill I'll enjoy
Is not the island moon, not the fish or the poi
It's just a little brown gal in a little grass skirt
In a little grass shack in Hawaii

It's not the islands fair that are calling to me
It's not the balmy air, nor the tropical sea
It's just a little brown gal in a little grass skirt
In a little grass shack in Hawaii

It isn't Waikiki nor Kamehameha's Pali
Not the Beach Boys free with their ho'omalimali
But it's a little brown gal in a little grass skirt
In a little grass shack in Hawaii

Through that island wonderland
She's broken all the Kanes' hearts
It's not hard to understand
For that Wahini is a gal apart

I'll be leaving soon, but the thrill I'll enjoy
Is not the island moon, not the fish or the poi
It's just a little brown gal in a little grass skirt
In a little grass shack in Hawaii

It's just a little brown gal in a little grass skirt
In a little grass shack in Hawaii
