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.

Lyrics ONE O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING,
SHOUTS THE TIMEPIECE
ON THE SHELF,
ONE O'CLOCK EVERY MORNING
FINDS ME SITTING BY MYSELF.
THERE'S MUCH
THAT'S WORTH
REMEMBERING,
EXCEPT FOR JUST ONE THING:

WHAT GOOD IS A DREAM,
A PLAN OR A SCHEME,
THE RAINBOW
THAT YOU PURSUE?
IT'S EVERYTHING
AND IT'S NOTHING,
WITHOUT SOMEONE
TO TELL IT TO.
HOW EAGER YOU ARE
TO GET TO THAT STAR,
BUT AFTER
THE JOURNEY'S THROUGH,
YOU'RE ONLY
A LONELY DREAMER,
WITHOUT SOMEONE
TO TELL IT TO.

THERE'LL BE BIRTHDAYS,
HARD TO GET
THROUGH DAYS,
DAYS WHEN
YOU JUST WANT TO DIE.
SOON YOU'RE OLDER
AND THE WORLD'S
COLDER,
WHEN THERE'S NO SHOULDER
TO CRY ON.

CASTLES IN AIR
ARE EMPTY AND BARE
WITH NO ONE
TO SHARE THE VIEW,
THE MOONLIGHT
IS MERELY MOONLIGHT,
THERE'S NO MAGIC
IN I LOVE YOU,
WITHOUT SOMEONE,
SOMEONE TO TELL IT TO.
