Cue Sheet
 

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain across, you turn your girl around
Chain the ladies, send her right back home and now
Join your hands, you've gotta circle 'round the ring
Allemande left and weave around the ring
*Soon the other little ladies started singing it
And the hula maids and started swinging it
Like a tropical storm that's the way it hits
Swing and sway the old Hawaiian way


ADDITIONAL LYRICS

We're going a-way
Swing and promenade her, I say


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) you promenade, halfway around the ring
Walk in and pass the ocean, extend today
Swing thru, spin the top
Men move up and do the right & left thru
Come on and square thru three hands around the ring
Swing your corner girl around and promenade
Like a tropical storm that's the way it hits
Swing and sway the old Hawaiian way


TAG

Oh yeah, A - lo - ha!

Hawaiian War Chant
 
 

There's a sunny little, funny little melody
It was started by a native down in Waikiki
He would gather a crowd down beside the sea
And they'd play his gay Hawaiian Chant

Soon the other little natives started singing it
And the hula hula maidens starting swinging it
Like a tropical storm, that's the way it hit
Funny little gay Hawaiian chant

Au we ta huala
Au we ta huala

Though it started on an island down Hawaii way
It's as popular in Tennessee or Ioway
If you wander into any cabaret
You will hear this gay Hawaiian chant

Au we ta huala
Au we ta huala

Au we ta huala
Au we ta huala

There's a sunny little, funny little melody
It was started by a native down in Waikiki
He would gather a crowd down beside the sea
And they'd play his gay Hawaiian Chant

Soon the other little natives started singing it
And the hula hula maidens starting swinging it
Like a tropical storm, that's the way it hit
Funny little gay Hawaiian chant

Au we ta huala
Au we ta huala
Au we ta huala
Au we

Funny little gay Hawaiian chant
Funny little gay Hawaiian chant
Funny little gay Hawaiian chant

Original Hawai'ian lyrics:

Kaua i ka huahua'i
E 'uhene la'i pili ko'olua
Pukuku'i lua i ke ko'eko'e
Hanu lipo o ka pa lai

Auwe ka hua'i la
Auwe ka hua'i la

'Auhea wale ana 'oe
E ka'u mea e li'a nei
Mai ho'apa'apa mai 'oe
O loa'a pono kaua

I aloha wau ia 'oe
I kau hanahana pono
La'i a'e ke kaunu me ia la
Ho'apa'apa i ka mana'o

===
English translation:

You and I in the spray
Such joy, the two of us together
Embracing tightly in the coolness
Breathing deep of the palai fern

Chorus:
Oh, such spray

Listen
My desire
Don't linger
Lest we be found

I loved you
Your warmth
Calmed passion
Preventing thought

Composed by Prince Leleiohoku (modified by Johnny Noble).
Lyrics by Prince Leleiohoku (English version: Ralph Freed).
Recorded by Tommy Dorsey; many others.
