Crushed Flowers - Words by Harriett Warrick Music by Benny Saks


I have only crushed flowers
Left in my lei
Since you caressed me, my darling
And sailed away
Crushed orchids and ginger
I hold to my heart
Oh, please come back to Hawai`i
Never to part


A new love may tempt me
But I'll always be true
And watching and waiting
Here in paradise for you

I'll be waiting with new leis
E Ku`u ipo
To be crushed in our embrace dear
'Cause I love you so


Benny Saks
