1. Where soft breezes blow,
Back to those shores I want to go;
Carefree sunny isles,
Heaven has given you its brightest smiles
Mount, vale, shore and sea,
Dearest of mem'ries are to me
And one browneyed maid
With her heart a yearning for my return.

My own dear Island,
Where moonlight gleams;
Dear old Hawaii,
Land of my dreams
My own dear Island, Where moonlight gleams
Dear old Hawaii,
Land of my dreams.

2. Moonlight on the sea,
And on the sands of Waikiki;
There just you and I
Stroll 'neath the tropical blue and starlit sky
Sweet sounds on the breeze;
Hear that guitar beneath the trees
Where some lover true
Sings a Hula serenade to his love.
