There's a sunny little, funny little melody
That was started by a native down in Waikiki
He would gather a crowd down beside the sea
And they'd do the Polynesian war chant

Soon the other little natives started singin' it
And the hula hula maidens starting swingin' it
Like a tropical storm that's the way it hit
Funny little Polynesian war chant

Au we ta huala
Au we ta huala

Tahuwai la a tahuwai wai la
Ehu hene la a pili koo lua la
Pututui lu a ite toe la
Hanu lipo ita paalai

Au we ta huala
Au we ta huala
