Memories of Old Hawai`i - Composer unknown

Memories of old Hawai`i
Is slowly drifting away, escaping today
Too soon, too soon!
The love that was old Hawai`i
Is drifting off with the tide
Each morning, night and noon
Like the flowers, once we knew blooming everywhere
The big hibiscus you wore in your hair
Now only the memories I treasure remain
All we can do is cry out in vain
Memories of old Hawai`i always be the same
