Hawaiian war chant

		T&M: Noble - Leleiohaku - Freed

There's a sunny little, funny little melody,
that was started by a native down in Waikiki
He would gather a crowd down beside the sea,
and together they'd play his gay Hawaiin Chant.

Soon the other little natives started singin' it,
and the hula hula maidens starting swingin' it.
Like a tropical storm that's the way it hit,
funny little gay Hawaiian chant.

	Ow way tah, Tualan
	Me big bad, Fightin' man

Tho 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.

	Ow way tah, Tualan
	Me big bad, Fightin' man

Tahuwai la a tahuwai wai la
Ehu hene la a pili koo lua la
Pututui lu a ite toe la
Hanu lipo ita paalai

Tahuwai la a tahuwai wai la
Ehu hene la a pili koo lua la
Pututui lu a ite toe la
Hanu lipo ita paalai

	Au we ta huala
	Au we ta huala

Tahuwai la a tahuwai wai la
Ehu hene la a pili koo lua la
Pututui lu a ite toe la
Hanu lipo ita paalai

Tahuwai la a tahuwai wai la
Ehu hene la a pili koo lua la
Pututui lu a ite toe la
Hanu lipo ita paalai

	Au we ta huala
	Au we ta huala
