O'BRIEN IS TRYIN' TO LEARN TO TALK HAWAIIAN
Words, Al Dubin. Music, Rennie J. Cormack. 1914.
Pat O'Brien, after buyin' a ticket for the Sandwich Isles,
His face all full of smiles, and after many trials,
Paddy landed, then meandered where the hula maidens sway.
Oh, he met a hula dancer down beside Hawaii Bay.
She won his heart away, and I heard the other day...
O'Brien is tryin' to learn to talk Hawaiian to his Honolulu Lou,
For he's sighin' and cryin' and all the time he's tryin'
Just to say, "I love you true."
With his "Arrah yakka hula begorra hicki dula"
And his Irish "Jiji boo,"
Sure, O'Brien is tryin' to learn to talk Hawaiian to his Honolulu Lou.
Paddy's yearnin' to be learnin' to play the ukulele too
For his Honolulu Lou, like all Hawaiians do.
Paddy's dancer doesn't answer when he starts to talk and shout,
For when paddy talks Hawaiian, no one knows what it's about.
If his wife only knew, he'd be in an Irish stew.
O'Brien is tryin' to learn to talk Hawaiian to his Honolulu Lou,
For he's sighin' and lyin' in Irish and Hawaiian
To his wife and Lulu too,
While he writes a lot of blarney to his Katie in Killarney
And she thinks that he is true.
Sure, O'Brien is tryin' to learn to talk Hawaiian to his Honolulu Lou.
Paddy likes Hawaiian music because it's such a novelty.
He thinks the harmony is sweet as it can be.
If he tries to, he'll get wise to all the melodies he's heard,
And he knows some tunes already but he doesn't know a word.
Hawaiian's hard to get with an Irish alphabet.
O'Brien is tryin' to learn to talk Hawaiian to his Honolulu Lou.
He's sighin' and cryin' and all the time he's tryin'
To say, "I love you true."
He won Bridget, Kate, and Mary by singing "Tipperary,"
And he'll win his Lulu too,
For O'Brien is tryin' to learn to talk Hawaiian to his Honolulu Lou.
