Lyrics [verse 1]:
WISH I WAS
AN APPLE,
DANGLING
FROM A TREE,
EVERY TIME
YOU'D PASS
ME BY,
YOU'D TAKE
A BITE
OF ME.
I WISH I WAS
A BLUEBIRD,
I'D NEVER
FLY AWAY,
I'D SIT UPON
YOUR SHOULDER,
BABY,
AND SING TO YOU
ALL DAY.

[Chorus]:
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME
TO ME.

[verse 2]:
I WROTE IT
IN A LETTER,
CARVED IT
ON A TREE,
TOLD IT
TO A HONEYCOMB,
WHO TOLD IT
TO A BEE.
I TOLD THEM
HAT I LOVED YOU,
THEY ALL KNOW
IT'S TRUE,
I'LL SAY IT
TILL THE COWS
COME HOME,
UNTIL IT GETS
TO YOU.

[Chorus]:
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME
TO ME.

[bridge]:
NEED YOU
IN THE MORNIN'
TO START
THE COFFEE POT,
NEED YOU
IN THE AFTERNOON,
TO FAN ME
WHEN I'M HOT.
NEED YOU
IN THE EVENIN'
WHEN SUPPER TIME
IS THROUGH,
WHAT I'M REALLY
TRYIN' TO SAY
IS I CAN'T GET ENOUGH
OF YOU.

[Chorus]:
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME
TO ME.

[verse 3]:
IF I WERE
A MUSICIAN,
I'D HARP
ON JUST ONE THING:
YOU SHOULD NEVER
PLAY MY HEART
THE WAY
YOU PLUCK A STRING.
IF ONLY
YOU WOULD LOVE ME,
SINCERELY TELL ME SO,
I'D BEAT THE DRUMS
ABOUT IT,
BABY,
TO HAVE THE WHOLE WORLD
KNOW.

[Chorus]:
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME
TO ME.
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME
TO ME.
Alt. Title Rock A Hula Baby

Writers Dolores Fuller, Ben Weisman, Fred Wise

Genres Classic Rock, Rock, Pop, Movie Song, Children-Novelty

Recorded 1961

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.
