Lyrics

KAHANA SAND

 

You sit there in your beach chair

Drinking a pog and rum

I sit here in my beach chair

Thinking you might get me another one

 

Cause I’m busy reading my trashy novel

Supervising pails and shovels

 

Chorus

Oh, Bury me in the Kahana Sand

Let me forever hear my children playing

Where the waves break on the coral reef

And the palm fronds gently swaying

 

It’s no chores, sunscreen wars

Bodies flying in the surf

The red flag is raising the guard

And I’m just praying nobody gets hurt

 

And as the sun dips down behind Lanai

The low of conch shell bids goodbye

 

Chorus repeat

 

Bridge

Oh Mahalo Maui

Your Ohana lives in me

 

As I look across this channel

And think of waters we have crossed

We have fought against the current

Nearly drown in pride and in loss

 

But we kept our heads above water

To find ourselves, to find each other

Rich in family and friends

Where all other cares drift away on the trade winds

 

Chorus repeat
