Let's Talk Dirty in Hawaiian

Let's Talk Dirty in Hawaiian
(John Prine/Fred Koller)

 (D)  I packed my bags and bought myself a ticket
For the land of the tall palm (A) tree
Aloha Old Milwaukee, Hello Waiki(D) ki
I just stepped down from the airplane
When I thought I heard her (G) say
Waka waka nuka nuka, (D) waka waka nuka nuka
(A) Would you like a (D) lei? (A) Eh?

cho: (D) Let's talk dirty in Hawaiian
     Whisper in my (A) ear
     Kicka poo ka maka wa wah wahini
     Are the words I long to (D) hear
     Lay your coconut on my tiki
     What the hecka mooka mooka (G) dear
     Let's talk dirty in Ha(D) waiian
     Say the (A) words I long to (D) hear

(D) It's a ukulele Honolulu sunset
Listen to the grass skirts (A) sway
Drinking rum from a pineapple
Out on Honolulu (D) Bay
The steel guitars all playing
While she's talking with her (G) hands
Gimme gimme oka doka (D) make a wish and wanta polka
(A) Words I under(D) stand (A)

(D) I boughta lota junka with my moola
And sent it to the folks back (A) home
I never had the chance to dance the hula
I guess I should have (D) known
When you start talking to the sweet wahini
Walking in the pale moon(G) light
Oka doka what a setta (D) knocka rocka sis boom bocas
(A) Hope I said it (D) right (A)

spoken: Aloha
