Leilani Lyrics

Somewhere on a South Pacific island
Sits a young man staring at the surf
His native girlfriend died a death quite violent
A tribal sacrifice made to the Earth

She was brown, her hair was black, her eyes were blue
A chief's daughter, Leilani was her name
She and her young man made a handsome two
But lava tore them both apart again.

He'd say, Leilani, don't go to the volcano
He'd say, please don't go to the volcano

They were saving for a little hut
He collected sea shells every day
Every night they'd share a cigarette
But the ancient, angry gods got in the way

He'd say, Leilani, don't go to the volcano
He would plead, please don't go, I'll miss you so

Katoomba hey! Macumbah ho! Umgawah!
Katoomba hey! Macumbah ho! Umgawah!
Katoomba hey! Macumbah ho! Umgawah!
Hey! Ho! Hey-eh!
Hey! Ho! Hey-eh! Ah
Leilani crula-bula-ulladulla-wok-a-tai
Aba-laba-laba Hut! Aba-laba-laba Hut!
Leilani nevageta-huta-tera-cota-tile
Aba-laba-laba Hut! Aba-laba-laba Hut!
Umgawah!
Hey! Ho! Hey-eh!
Hey! Ho! Hey-eh!
Hey! Ho! Hey-eh!
Ah Ah

Still the young man sits there on the beach
He's staring misty-eyed out into space
He's thinking about his girlfriend, of late deceased
At least her death had purpose, his life is a waste

Hey, his life is a waste
Please don't go, I love you, I love you, I love you so
