Aloha ka manini

 

Aloha ka manini me ka popolo

He i`a noho `ia i ka lau papa

 

Kala ke nenue `o ka Nahawele

Moani ke `ala ke honi aku

 

`Ahole i`a piko lihaliha

Poi 'uala kaohi pu'u

 

Ha`ina `ia mai ana ka puana

 

Aloha ka manini me ka popolo

 

 

 

Moonlight Lady

(S. Cropper/E. Floyd)

 

[C]Moon[F]light [C]lady, [C]eyes [F]dark as the [C]midnight [C7]sky,

[F]Not too [C]many [F]men [C]for[D]get [C]your [D]smile.

[C]Moon[F]light [C]lady, [C]arms [F]strong as the [C]valley [C7]walls,

[F]Not too [C]many [F]men [C]for[D]get [C]your [D]touch.

 

[Bm]You work in the [Em]fields by day,

[A7]In the sun while your [D]children play.

[Bm]Rivers sing [Em]their lullabies,

[A7]And rainbows fill their [D]youthful eyes.

 

[C]Moon[F]light [C]lady, [C]voice [F]like a [C]running [C7]stream,

[F]Not too [C]many [F]men [C]for[D]get [C]your [D]song.

[C]Moon[F]light [C]lady, [C]skin [F]warm as the [C]noonday [C7]sun,

[F]Not too [C]many [F]men [C]for[D]get [C]your [D]spell
