Lyrics
Saw a sign of you, yes, I understand

You're trying to make a fool out of me

Oh, yes I know, yes, I understand

You're trying to make a fool out of me

Ayai yai, ayai yai, listen to me

Talking about the Hawaiian man

Ayai yai, ayai yai, listen to me

Talking about the Fijian man

Bula vinaka, moce vinaka too

Listen down in Fijiland

Ni sa bula, ni sa yandra too

Singing down in Fijiland

Ayai yai, ayai yai, listen to me

Talking about the Hawaiian man

Ayai yai, ayai yai, talking

About one big Hawaiian man

Oh, aloha, mahalo too

They say in old Kauai

Oh talking, so cute, talking down in Kauai

Ayai yai, ayai yai, baby, listen to me

Talking about the Hawaiian man

Ayai yai, ayai yai, listen to me

Talking about the Hawaiian man

Joe Naves, Robbie Kaholaku too, in old Kauai

Oh, oh, so many more to say

Ayai yai, ayai yai, listen to me

Talking about the Hawaiian man

Ayai yai, ayai yai, listen to me

Talking about the Fijiman

Ni sa bula, moce vinaka too

Singing down in Fijiland

Kiora kiora too, they say down in Kiwiland

Ayai yai, ayai yai, listen to me

Talking about the Fijian man

Ayai yai, ayai yai, tui maui, I'm talking

About the Maui man

Moce vinaka, ni sa yandra

Yo, yo, yo

You singing down in Fijiland

Ayai yai, ayai yai, listen to me
