Makin' Wickey-Wackey Down In Waikiki

(Al Hoffman / Burton Lane) 1930


New Mayfair Dance Orchestra

Pack up your troubles, come on along
Where nights are dreamy and life's a song
In Honolulu across the sea
Makin' wicky-wacky down in Waikiki

Those hula dancers are sure good news
Those joy dispensers a cure for the blues
It's absolutley the place to be
Makin' wicky-wacky down in Waikiki

No evening clothes
Anything goes
Believe it or not
And when the night shadows fall
That's when they're all
Getting hot
On the ukelele

They use a moonbeam to light the night
And every tune seems to sound just right
It's absolutely the place to be
Makin' wicky-wacky down in Waikiki

Come with me, all you wooky makers
All you wideawakers, join me
I've just found a spot
You'll like it a lot

Far away, hop in Honolulu
When the hula-hula greets you
Hawaii's the place
Get a smile on your face

Pack up your troubles, come on along
Where nights are dreamy and life's a song
In Honolulu across the sea
Makin' wicky-wacky down in Waikiki

Those hula dancers are sure good news
Those joy dispensers a cure for the blues
It's absolutley the place to be
Makin' wicky-wacky down in Waikiki

The modern daughters, cure their chauter?
In sunny weather
Now chauters and their aughters?
Still they vanish all together
