Sheet Music: Hits from Hawaii for the Ukulele (Miller Music Corp., 1950)
Leo Feist, New York
"An alluring waltz melody ballad"
When day is slowly dying
Then mem'ry comes a-haunting
And I'm wanting Honolulu moon and you
When little stars are blinking
I am thinking
Thinking of one place only
And I'm lonely for the Honolulu moon
Honolulu Moon, now very soon you will come a shining
O'er the drowsy blue lagoon
All the balmy air;
Breathes a perfume rare;
To be with you there my heart is pining;
Side by side with you in our canoe to go a gliding,
While I sing a dreamy tune,
Tender words of love to you confiding;
Under Honolulu Moon.
Mahalo to MJ Cort and Cindy P. for these lyrics.
