(Words A. Latimer; music: A.Latimer, A. Law)

When my Hawaiian friend Cynthia heard this she said
"It sounds fine, but what is a frangipanni?" I love the
incongruity, and what's more, it wouldn't rhyme.

As I stand on the beach
And dream of Hawaii
I'm thinking of my sweetheart
Waiting there
I've got sand in my shoes for the islands
I'd really like to go,
But I know I don't have the fare

We swore that someday
We'd be together in the sun
Lazing in the shallows
And I kissed her with
The scent of frangipanis in the air
But as I stand on the beach
And dream of hawaii
AlI can do
Is wish and watch the steamers sail by

I got a card from my girl in Hawaii
She's missing me and wishing I was there
I can almost feel the softness of her body
See the smile in her eyes, and feel the
Gentle touch of her hair

We swore that someday
We'd be together in the sun
Lazing in the shallows
And I kissed her with
The scent of frangipanis in the air
But as I stand on the beach
And dream of Hawaii
AlI can do
Is wish and watch the steamers sail by
