Song : E
C
There’s a sunny little funny little melody
C7
that was started by a native down in Waikiki
F C
He would gather a crowd down beside the sea...
G7 C
and they’d play his gay Hawaiian chant

Soon the other little natives started singin’ it
C7
and the hula, hula maidens started swingin’ it
F C
Like a tropical storm, that’s the way it hit....
G7 C
funny little gay Hawaiian chant.
F C G7 C C7 F C G7 C
Ow way tah Tu-a-lan, me big bad fightin’man.
Tho’ it started on an island down Hawaii way
C7
it’s as popular in Tennessee or I-o-way,
F C
If you wander into any cabaret.....
G7 C
you will hear this gay Hawaiian chant.
F C G7 C C7 F C G7 C
Ow way tah Tu-a-lan, me big bad fightin’man. (X2)
