Pineapple Princess

by Richard M. Sherman

 

 *"Pineapple princess"

   He calls me pineapple princess all day

   As he plays his ukulele on the hill above the bay

   "Pineapple princess,

        I love you, you're the sweetest girl I've seen"

   "Some day we're gonna marry

        and you'll be my pineapple queen"

 

I saw a boy on Oahu isle

Floatin' down the bay on a crocodile

He waved at me and he swam ashore

And I knew he'd be mine forevermore

 

 *chorus

 

He sings his song from banana trees

He even sings to me on his water skis

We went skin-divin' and beneath the blue

He sang and played his ukulele, too

 

   "Pineapple princess,

        I love you, you're the sweetest girl I've seen"

   "Some day we're gonna marry

        and you'll be my pineapple queen"

 

We'll settle down in a bamboo hut

And he will be my own little coconut

Then we'll be beachcombin' royalty

On wicky-wicky wacky Waikiki

 

 *chorus

パイナップル・プリンセス
