Hawaiian Charm - Words by Lydia Schaefer, Music by George "Gippy" Cooke

Click title to access melody

Silvery light, a pathway bright
The moon in a starlit sky
Soft summer breeze, languorous trees
Hawaiian evening is nigh

On beaches of white in the silent night
Waves croon in a soft lullaby
Blue holoku, ukulele or two
Gold hula moon on high
Softly croon a kanaka tune
Hawaiian evening is nigh

Coconut palms, lingering charms
A smile, Hawai`i, a sigh
Bending so low, that I but know
"Aloha" our evening passed by
