Aloha Rosa

Cracklin' Rosie rewritten with apologies to Neil Diamond

 

 

Aloha Rosa, we’re on board

We're gonna read till there ain't no more to go

Ho’omau

Kuleana

Workin' with ho’ohona

 

Switchin' on the internet train

Plenty there that I need to take along

Rewrite a song

To sing when I want

Don't need to say please to no man for a happy tune

 

Oh, I love my Aloha Rosa

She got the way to make me happy

You and me, we go in style

AlohaRosa you're a Talking Story woman

You make me sing like a guitar hummin'

So hang on to it, girl

Your song keeps runnin' on

 

Say it now

Say it now

Say it now, Rosa

 

Aloha Rosa, help me 'Imi ola

Aloha is an attitude, that's all right

We got all night

Ho’ohanaohano

Find us a dream kulia I ka nu’a

 

Oh, I love my Aloha Rosa

You got the way to make me happy

You and me, we go in style

Say it now

Say it now

Say it now, Rosa

 

Aloha Rosa, help me ‘ike loa

Aloha is an attitude, that's all right

We got all night

Ho’ohanaohano

Find us a dream kulia I ka nu’a

    Steve, you rock!

    Now someone please help me connect Steve up with a podcast - I want to hear him sing it!

    I've sung it out loud for myself, and if you can imagine it, did a rockin' hula dance at the same time :-)

    Absolutely true story: My dad used to sing this song to me all the time - kind of a mixture of yours and Neil's original! He's been in heaven for 16 years now, and I can still hear him as I read these words. I can't imagine how you could have given me a greater gift Steve.

    With love in my heart, and the biggest aloha kisses you can imagine,
    Rosa

    ah, there will be a podcast in the near future of me talking but I would not create that kind of torture (i.e. me singing) for any one especially such kind friends ...

    I can carry an idea to fruition but I can not carry a note.

    Rock on!
