Lyrics
I want to go back to my little grass shack In Kealakekua, Hawai`i I want to be with all the kanes and wahines That I used to know long ago I can hear the old guitars playing On the beach at Hônaunau I can hear the old Hawaiians saying Komo mai no kâua i ka hale welakahao It won't be long till my ship will be sailing Back to Kona A grand old place That's always fair to see, you're telling me I'm just a little Hawaiian A homesick island boy I want to go back to my fish and poi I want to go back to my little grass shack In Kealakekua, Hawai`i Where the humuhumunukunukuâpua`a Go swimming by
