FIND SOME PEACEGo outside, breathe the air
Call up an old friend
Tell ’em you still care
Make a lil’ lovin’ make a lil’ music
Don’t ya know it’s the same thing
If you know how to use it

So take a walk with me
I don’t know where I’m goin’
But there’s no place that I’d rather be
Livin’ in the moment, find the honesty
And find some peace

Go for a long drive, maybe a bike ride
Some days are better stayin’ inside
Lookin’ for hope, lookin’ for dignity
Lookin’ for love, lookin’ for peace

CHORUS

I know it’s hard goin’ your own way
I know it’s hard seizin’ your own day
But there ain’t no hill that ain’t worth climbing’
Ain’t no road that ain’t worth drivin’
Ain’t no wish that ain’t worth wishin’
Ain’t no girl that ain’t worth kissin’

So take a walk with me
I don’t know where I’m goin’
But there’s no place that I’d rather be
Livin’ in the moment, find the honesty
And find some peace

EARTH TONES
Color me with your love
Color me with your beautiful
Color me with your mmm mmm mmm

Earth tones are all around
Some are green and some are brown
Every time my heart makes a sound
It goes boom, thump thump fer you

Earth tones are all around
Some are up and some are down
I’ve seen ’em all over town
And in your eyes so blue

Color me with your love
Color me with your beautiful
Color me with your mmm mmm mmm

Earth tones are everywhere
On the beach and in the mountain air
I’ve even seen ’em at the county fair
Corn dogs and carnival fun

Earth tones are everywhere
On the radio and in your long hair
They even make that color underwear
But you ain’t wearin’ none

CHORUS

I live a denim life, I had a stonewashed wife
She bathed in caramel and stole my ginger ale
I loved a surfer girl in a terra-cotta world
She stirred her mushroom latte with a ukulele
Strawberry butter scotch, hey why not?
Remember that time we ran through the meadow?

CHORUS

PRETTY GIRL
Nothin’ in the world like a pretty girl
Nothin’ in the world like a pretty girl
Nothin’ in the world like a pretty girl
Nothin’ in the world like a pretty girl
Nothin’ in the world like a pretty girl

I know it’s gettin’ late and I gotta go
An’ I don’t know when I’ll see you again
But I’ll always remember our time together
Now until the end

Nothin’ like a walk underneath the stars
Nothin’ like a walk underneath the stars
Nothin’ like a walk underneath the stars
Nothin’ like a walk underneath the stars
Nothin’ like a walk with a pretty girl

I know it’s gettin’ late and I gotta go
An’ I don’t know when I’ll see you again
But I’ll always remember our time together
Now until the end

‘Cause there’s nothin’ in the world like a pretty girl
Nothin’ in the world like a pretty girl
Nothin’ in the world like a pretty girl
Nothin’ in the world like a pretty girl
Nothin’ in the world like a pretty girl
No, there’s nothin’ in the world like a pretty girl
No, there’s nothin’ in the world like a pretty girl

Somethin’ special oh, oh
Somethin’ special, oh, oh
Somethin’ special, oh, oh

Everbody’s lookin’ for somethin’
Somethin’ to help ’em feel so good
And if we had a chance
Oh, I know we would

You see, you and me could be
Somethin’ special oh, oh
Somethin’ special, oh, oh
Somethin’ special

So let’s get high, we’ve got nowhere to go
Gonna fly, turn on the radio

Somethin’ to help along the way
And if we had a dance
Oh, I know you’d say

You’d say you and me could be
Somethin’ special oh, oh
Somethin’ special, oh, oh

CHORUS

Walkin’ down Chartres St.
Saturday night in New Orleans
Everybody’s happy
Vampires in their tight blue jeans
We said no regrets
And then you said something I won’t forget

You said you and me could be
Somethin’ special oh, oh
Somethin’ special, oh, oh
Somethin’ special

CHORUS

LUCKY GUY

Oh me, oh my, maybe baby I’m a lucky guy
Oh me, oh my, maybe baby I’m a lucky guy

I’d rather be lucky than good
Just like my Daddy said I should
‘Cause it ain’t braggin’ if you’re doin’ it
Better than you ever thought you could

Oh me, oh my, maybe baby I’m a lucky guy

I always get the girl in the end
Even if we end up just as friends
I catch the biggest fish in the whole damn sea
Bein’ good’s expensive, gettin’ lucky babe, it’s free!

Oh me, oh my, maybe baby I’m a lucky guy

Oh me, oh my, maybe baby I’m a lucky
Hey there baby, let’s get lucky
Maybe baby, I’m a lucky guy

CAT IN THE WINDOW

I’m a cat in the window and I’m checkin’ out the birds
Cruisin’ down the avenue
Gonna find me a way to get out in the world
And see if your love is true

I got my eye, got my eye on you
I got my eye, got my eye on you

When I shake my tail from the left to the right
It means that I love you
When I shake my tail all through the night
You know I shake it for you

CHORUS

People say I sleep all day
Dreamin’ up games to play
But I’m dreamin’ of you

Yes I’m a cat in the window and I’m checkin’ out the birds
Cruisin’ down the avenue
Gonna find me a way to get out in the world
And see if your love is true

CHORUS

Yes I’m a cat in the window and I’m checkin’ out the birds
Cruisin’ down the avenue

PLAY THE UKUELE

It’s impossible to not be happy
Every time you play the ukulele
It’s impossible to not be happy
So play the ukulele and drive your blues away

Aye aye aye aye
Yippee-oh-ki-yay
Play the ukulele and make a lil’ love today

Take a sad song and make it kinda funny
Take a cloudy day and make it nice and sunny
Get a gig to play and make a lil’ money, honey
Get a ukulele and every now and then it pays

CHORUS

It is not a toy
It’s for girls and it’s for boys
It’s for spreadin’ all kinds of joy

Yes, it’s impossible to not be happy
Every time you play the ukulele
It’s impossible to not be happ
So play the ukulele and drive your blues
Play the ukulele and spread good news
Play the ukulele and make a lil’ love today

UKULELE LOVE AFFAIR

We had a ukulele love affair by the light of the moon
You were drinkin’ margaritas and I was singin’ you tunes

And we laughed ’til midnight and we loved ’til the dawn
And I played that ukulele all summer long

We had the time of our lives, oh so much fun
What a crazy ride, I thought you were the one

And we laughed ’til midnight and we loved every dawn
And I played that ukulele all summer long
All summer long

Well the autumn winds came in and he bought you a ring
So I had to change my tune and find some new strings

But I’m still laughin’ every midnight
And I’m lovin’ every dawn
And you’re my ukule’s favorite song

When we laughed ’til midnight and we loved ’til the dawn
And I played that ukulele all summer long
All summer long

SAN LUIS OBISPO (TAKE IT SLO)

Well I have been to every town, my music lets me roam
And I had yet to find a place to ever call my home
‘Twas then I met a pretty girl, her name was Lindsey Rei
One look in her big blue eyes, I knew I had to stay

In San Luis Obispo
Well that’s where I wanna go (Take it SLO)
Where the mountains meet the deep blue sea
In San Luis Obispo
Well that’s where I wanna go (Take it SLO)
It’s the only home for me

Well it was finally settled back in 1856
And who back then would ever guess or dare to predict
The party scene that’s goin’ strong on Higuera Street
Singing, drinking, loving, dancing, lots of happy feet

CHORUS

Well you can have your southern towns, Diego or LA
And you can have some crazy fun in San Francisco Bay
But when I want to settle down from places where I play
Bet your bottom dollar, I’ll be there with Lindsey Rei

EVEN HULA GIRLS GET THE BLUES

Shake shake shake a hula
Shake shake shake a hula
Shake shake shake a hula

Hey all you sailor boys, man I got bad news
I learned the hard way even hula girls get the blues

When hula girls get the blues
Hula girls get the blues
Get the blues

I had to leave my baby, I had to leave that day
I’d been spending too much time in Kealakekua Bay
But I hit bad weather
I had to turn back, you know it’s true
But my baby didn’t expect me so soon
She burned down my ship and she sunk my crew

CHORUS

Shake shake shake a hula
Shake shake shake a hula

Now Captain Cook got no more ship
Oh, you know it’s true
My baby, she sunk down
Even hula girls get the blues

CHORUS

Shake shake shake a hula
Shake shake shake a hula

THAT OLD SONG

What was that sound
When we were gettin’ down
What did we say
When we rode the waves

Tell me what you know
I’ll tell you where you’ve gotta go
All my friends below
Are turnin’ that old song on

What was her name
That girl from yesterday
She was queen
She was Miss Understanding

CHORUS

Where did they go?
Nobody knows?

Lookin’ for love
Lookin’ for a real good friend
Lookin’ for love
Let’s have a good time

CHORUS

MY LANAI

Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I cry
As the ocean passes me on by
I watch the sunset in the sky
That’s the view from my lanai

Hear the laughter and feel the sighs
Of those still with us and those who’ve said goodbye
All the memories in lover’s eyes
That’s the view from my lanai

Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I cry (Hau‘oli ‘A‘ole pilikia / Kahu Kahiko kai Hula Huhu)
As the years, as they roll on by (Makana Mau Loa Laule‘a Makai)
I watch the sunset in the sky (Nani napo’o’ana o ka la a)
That’s the view from my lanai
That’s the view from my lanai
A Hui Hou
Aloha

FLOW

Long ago, I don’t know when
That’s when we let the water flow in
They said it’s time, it’s time to begin
So we let the water flow in

Let the water flow, let it flow right in
Come on baby, let’s take a swim
Let the water flow, let it flow right in
Come on baby, let’s take a swim in love

Reason why the fish has a fin
Same reason why the human has sin
It’s to direct through thicker and thin
And we let the water flow in

CHORUS

We are one race, one big kin
We come in many different colors of skin
But it’s one race, we all do swim
And we let the water flow in

CHORUS
