( Funny Hawaiian song lyrics )
ALOHA OI VEY
( Princess shopping on The Big Island )
Copyright © 2006 - MickTerry.com
Seems like most Hawaiian legends
start out with a handsome young prince.
& for sure, Irving was a prince in his mother's eyes.
When the fam'ly took vacation,
they sailed far from their Castle Brooklyn
in the long canoe, payments overdue,
all expenses amortized.
When they landed on The Island,
they never had seen such splendor,
with the mountains so tall & spewing volcanic smoke.
They were shopping for a princess.
Such a marriage that she would enter
with their perfect one: she would give him sons,
keep the royal line un-broke.
ALO-HA, ALOHA OI- VEY.
On an island so small,
you don't know if you're coming or going.
ALO-HA, ALOHA OI- VEY.
Here's the legend so tall
about Irv Schwartz & Sylvia Cohen.
It was on a tour of The Island
that Irv met up with a native,
just a clerk in a tourist trap where his mother shopped.
Was it that she was wearing no bra
that he found so infatuative?
But what ever it was, they had found a love
that they knew could not be stopped.
What to do? His mother would never approve.
Being one eighth goyem, a real true princess
Sylvia could never be.
What to do? Her family disapproved, too.
As a deli owner, Irv was not the doctor
her fam'ly had always foreseen.
Goddess Pele felt their tears fall
inside her- deep volcano
& took pity upon these two who could never wed.
She transformed them into mannequins
in a bridal supply shop window.
In the day, they're seen like a married dream.
But at night, without lights, there's that bridal bed.
