Let's Talk Dirty in Hawaiian  John Prine/Fred Koller

[D]I packed my bags and bought myself a ticket
For the land of the tall palm [A7]tree
Aloha Old Milwaukee, Hello Waiki[D]ki
I just stepped down from the airplane
Wh[D7]en I thought I heard her [G]say
Waka waka nuka nuka, [D]waka waka nuka nuka
[A7]Would you like a [D]lei?  [A7]Eh?

[D]Let's talk dirty in Hawaiian
Whisper in my [A7]ear
Kicka poo ka maka wa wah wahini
Are the words I long to [D]hear
Lay your coconut on my tiki
Wh[D7]at the hecka mooka mooka [G]dear
Let's talk dirty in Ha[D]waiian
Say the [A7]words I long to [D]hear

[D]It's a ukelele Honolulu sunset
Listen to the grass skirts [A7]sway
Drinking rum from a pineapple
Out on Honolulu [D]Bay
The steel guitars all playing
Whi[D7]le she's talking with her [G]hands
Gimme gimme oka doka [D]make a wish and wanta polka
[A7]Words I under[D]stand [A7]


[D]I boughta lota junka with my moola
And sent it to the folks back [A7]home
I never had the chance to dance the hula
I guess I should have [D]known
When you start talking to the sweet wahini
Wal[D7]king in the pale moon[G]light
Oka doka what a setta [D]knocka rocka sis boom bocas
[A7]Hope I said it [D]right [A7]


spoken: Aloha
