BEAUTIFUL HULA DANCER
John Keawe Nov 2004

I think of you so often - you fill my dreams each night
Swaying on a distant shore -will you be mine tonight
chorus
My beautiful hula dancer – you move so gracefully
With hands that tell the story - for all who want to see
Your eyes reveal the love within -you smile so honestly
My beautiful hula dancer - won’t you dance for me

I’ve known you for a lifetime - I’ve loved you everyday
You share the wonders of your love - in each and every way

(chorus)>>>

My sweet and lovely woman - I hope that you can see
How proud I am to show the world - that you belong to me

(chorus).>>>2x

Swaying to the music - gliding across the floor
My beautiful hula dancer - it’s you that I adore
My beautiful hula dancer - it’s you that I adore

NOHO ME I`AU
John Keawe

He hiwa hiwa oe - kou aloha e
O oe hookahi - au i hoohihi ai
Ko ili palu palu – a me kou honi nahe nahe
A mau loa – noho me i`au

(Chorus)
E ku`uipo – moe uhane hiki mai
E ku`uipo – aloha wau ia oe
Hauoli au – e noho oe me i`au
A mau loa – noho me i`au

Hele mai i`au – me kou lima hamama
Paa kou kino – pili me i`au
Moe maluhia kaua – pil ka pu`uwai
A mau loa – noho me i`au

Haina mai – ana kapuana
Olelo hoohiki – ku`u aloha ia oe
O oe wale no – kau mea i aloha ai
A mau loa – noho me i`au


Stay With Me

1) My darling one – I need you sweet love
You alone – are the one I adore
Your soft skin – and your sweet kisses
Forever more – stay with me

(chorus)
My sweetheart – all my dreams have come true
My sweetheart – I will always love you
How happy I’d be – if you stay with me
Forever more – stay with me

2) Come to me – with arms unfolded
Hold your body – close to mine
As we lay in silence – together as one
Forever more – stay with me

3) This is my refrain
I do pledge – my love for you
You alone – are the one I adore
Forever more – stay with me

MOLOKAI LONGING
John Keawe 1995

Rainbow colors dancing on the mountain side
Morning sun is rising over Moloka`i
Through the wind swept valleys where your secrets lie
Hidden deep within your bosom Moloka`i

(CHORUS)

How I long to be with you
And breathe the power of your land
And as your winds blow across the ocean
Your voice is heard on distant sands

Distant voices whisper tales of days gone by
Telling of the mysteries of Moloka`i
In all your splendor – I still hear your cry
Island of joy and sorrow Moloka`i

(CHORUS)

Rainbow colors dancing on the mountain side
Morning sun is rising over Moloka`i
Through the wind swept valleys where your secrets lie
Hidden deep within your bosom Moloka`i

(CHORUS)

AS LONG AS
Ken Holton
John Keawe

As long as the sun rises at daybreak
And heaven’s stars twinkle so bright
As long as the roses bring their fragrance
And the moon shines at night

(chorus)

So long shall I love you
Forever it’s true
For you are my treasure
My whole life belongs to you

As long these words flow from my pen
And music brings pleasure to my ears
As long as these songs come from my heart
I will sing for all the world to hear

(chorus)

(bridge) As long as clouds cross the sky
You’ll be the love in my life – in my life

As long as the sun rises at daybreak
And heaven’s stars twinkle so bright
As long as the roses bring their fragrance
And the moon shines at night

(chorus)

As long as the sun rises at day break
And the moon shines at night
