I'm not sure why I like this song, it's very silly and honky-tonk.

great song. Here's the lyricks and tab for you to play :



{title:Let's Talk Dirty in Hawaiian}
{st:John Prine/Fred Koller}

[D]I packed my bags and bought myself a ticket
For the land of the tall palm [A]tree
Aloha Old Milwaukee, Hello Waiki[D]ki
I just stepped down from the airplane
When I thought I heard her [G]say
Waka waka nuka nuka, [D]waka waka nuka nuka
[A]Would you like a [D]lei? [A]Eh?

{c:Chorus}
{soc}
[D]Let's talk dirty in Hawaiian
Whisper in my [A]ear
Kicka poo ka maka wa wah wahini
Are the words I long to [D]hear
Lay your coconut on my tiki
What the hecka mooka mooka [G]dear
Let's talk dirty in Ha[D]waiian
Say the [A]words I long to [D]hear
{eoc}

[D]It's a ukelele Honolulu sunset
Listen to the grass skirts [A]sway
Drinking rum from a pineapple
Out on Honolulu [D]Bay
The steel guitars all playing
While she's talking with her [G]hands
Gimme gimme oka doka [D]make a wish and wanta polka
[A]Words I under[D]stand [A]

{c:Chorus}

[D]I boughta lota junka with my moola
And sent it to the folks back [A]home
I never had the chance to dance the hula
I guess I should have [D]known
When you start talking to the sweet wahini
Walking in the pale moon[G]light
Oka doka what a setta [D]knocka rocka sis boom bocas
[A]Hope I said it [D]right [A]

{c:Chorus}

spoken: Aloha

But, in the same time Instead of D I play G, instead of A I play D and instead of G I play C.

Have fun with this 3 chords song.

Tiki Wahine, the whole CD is a blast! I had no idea who PB was, just happened to run across it at a used CD store, and took a chance.

dayum.

I will tellya what it is NOT:
is NOT a "Hawaiian song"

I will tellya what it is:
It is terrible. and it's perfect for the mainland in da south.
and they can keep it. there.

For them to start off with Aloha `oe written by our revered Queen Lili`uokalani is absolutely reprehensible.

That would never see the light of day here.

shoot it before it multiplies.

me-OW!
Then don't listen to it if you don't like it.

I see nothing wrong with a song about a mainlander spending all his money in Honolulu.
Maybe he just needs a little Hawaiian language ed-ja-ma-cation.

At least he's not trying to talk pidgin like someone we know(not Gecko)

Tikiwahine,

The country-style is very reminiscent of that of the 50's country music scene -- one of my favorite styles. Very fitting style to portray the average mainlander touched by the Aloha Spirit!

Lanikai,
I apologize for my rude comment about Pidgin talk. That's not very aloha of me. I hope you have a great Halloween weekend in Hawaii!
