Beautiful Isles of Paradise - Henry Kailimai

I can hear the surf on the beaten sands
And the winds in the coco trees
They carry me away to a fairy land
In far off tropic seas

Beautiful isles of paradise
Moored in a sourthern sea
In the land of my dreams
Where the coral gleams
An Eden lies waiting for me

I can see a pair of flashing eyes
And a mouth that always smiles
As I wait for a tête-a-tête with my brown maid
In those wonderful paradise isles
