Lyrics verse:
SKIES ARE DARK ABOVE,
THE ONE I LOVE
IS FAR FROM HERE.
BUT THO'
THE NIGHT IS LONG,
I HEAR A SONG
THAT BRINGS
HER NEAR.

Chorus:
NIGHTINGALE,
AS I LIE
ON MY PILLOW,
I CAN HEAR YOU
IN THE WILLOW
SINGING LOVE SONGS
TO THE MOON.
NIGHTINGALE,
I FORGET
ALL MY SORROW,
AS YOU SERENADE
TOMORROW
WITH A SENTIMENTAL
TUNE.
MY LOVED ONE
MUST HAVE SENT YOU
TO CHEER ME
MY LOVED ONE
WHO IS OVER
THE SEA.
NIGHTINGALE,
THO' THE NIGHT
SEEMS UNENDING,
I CAN HEAR
THE LOVE
SHE'S SENDING
ON THE WINGS
OF MELODY.

'TIL THE STARS
GROW PALE,
SING NIGHTINGALE.


Spanish Lyric by EMILIO DE TORRE:

verse:
YA SEOCULTA
EL SOL.
SU LUZ HUYO
DE MI JARDIN.
ALLA,
AL ESCUCHAR,
A UN RUISENOR,
YO PIENSO
EN TI.

Chorus:
RUISENOR,
ENTRE SUENOS
TE OIGO.
CUANDO CANTAS
EN LA FRONDA
A LA LUNA
TU CANTAR.
RUISENOR,
MIS TRISTEZAS
OLVIDO,
CUANDO EN TONAS,
MELODIOSO,
TU CANCION
SENTIMENTAL.
MI AMADO,
DESDE MARES
LE JANOS
TE ENVIA,
MENSAJERO
DE AMOR.
RUISENOR,
AL CANTAR
EN LA NOCHE,
EN LAS NOTAS
DE TU CANTO
SIENTO VIVA
SU PASION.

CANCION DE AMOR,
DEL RUISENOR.

Lyrics [verse 1]:
THE WAY SHE MOVES
HER HIPS
UP TO HER FINGERTIPS,
I FEEL I'M HEAVEN BOUND.
AND WHEN SHE STARTS
TO SWAY,
I'VE GOTTA SAY,
SHE REALLY MOVES
THE GRASS AROUND.

[Chorus]:
ROCK A-HULA BABY,
ROCK A-HULA BABY.
GOT A HULA LULU
FROM HONOLULU,
THAT ROCK-A-HULA BABY
OF MINE.

[verse 2]:
ALTHOUGH I LOVE TO KISS
MY LITTLE HULA MISS,
I NEVER GET THE CHANCE.
I WANNA HOLD HER TIGHT
ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT,
BUT ALL SHE WANTS TO DO
IS DANCE.

[Chorus]:
ROCK A-HULA BABY,
ROCK A-HULA BABY.
GOT A HULA LULU
FROM HONOLULU,
THAT ROCK-A-HULA BABY
OF MINE.

[verse 3]:
I BET THAT SHE COULD TEACH
THE PALMS ALONG THE BEACH
TO SWAY WHEN BREEZES BLOW.
AND BIRDS UP IN THE SKY
COULD LEARN TO FLY
BY WATCHIN' HOW
MY BABY CAN GO.

[Chorus]:
ROCK A-HULA BABY,
ROCK A-HULA BABY.
GOT A HULA LULU
FROM HONOLULU,
THAT ROCK-A-HULA BABY
OF MINE.
