Sing Me a Song of the Islands :

Theme song of 'Song of the Islands' a hot 1942 Betty Grable film that featured her in a grass skirt. Three copies of this song exist on one wall of the Unit 1 Paste Rolling House. So much for Vera Lynn and Grace Fields ! (by Mack Gordon and Harry Owens. Second and third verse on the Rolling House wall. First verse found on the Internet.)

[Here am I enraptured]
[By the thrill of my Hawai'I]
[While I live I'll tell of you]
[The spell of you, Hawai'i.]

Sing me a song of the islands Sing me a song of the islands
Where hearts are high when the moon is low.

Where rippling waters seem to say
Aloha wau ia `oe.

Bring me the fragrance of ginger
Strum your guitars while I dream away
Sing me a song of the islands
Aloha wau ia `oe.
