In Blue Hawaii


Tempting fate with you my love
flying high 'neath skies above,
over land and over sea
in blue Hawaii we soon will be.

If we say a fervent prayer
our faith in God should take us there,
to those palm-trees gently swaying
to golden shores where music's playing.

A sunset wedding there could be
a paradise... a fantasy,
just an Hawaiian wedding song
could live in memory all life long.

But, is this all a fairytale,
am I building castles in the air?
I am tempting fate my darling one
in blue Hawaii, in the sun.

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
