Lipsyncing to John Prine

John Prine and puppet

For my next class on Friday Oct 8th, my puppet and I will be lipsyncing to John Prine’s song “Let’s Talk Dirty in Hawaiian”. The song makes me laugh. Here are the lyrics:

Well, I packed my bags and bought myself a ticket
For the land of the tall palm tree.
Aloha ol’ Milwaukee,
Hello Waikiki
I just stepped down from the airplane
When I heard her say.
“Wacka Wacka, nuka, licka
Wacka Wacka nuka licka
Would you like a ……Lay

Hey, Let’s talk dirty in Hawaiian
Whisper in my ear
Kicka puka maka waawaa heenee
Are the words I long to hear
Lay your coconut on my tickie
Whata hecka mooka mooka dear.
Let’s talk dirty in Hawaiian
Say the words I long to hear.

It’s a ukulele Honolulu sunset
Listen to the grass skirts sway
Drinking rum from the pineapple
Out on Honolulu Bay
The steel guitars are playin’
While she’s talking with her hands
Gimme gimme oaka doaka
Make a wish and wanta poka
Words I understand.

Let’s talk dirty in Hawaiian
Whisper in my ear
Kicka puka maaka waawaa heenee
Are the words I long to hear
Lay your coconut on my ticky
Whata hecka mooka mooka dear.
Let’s talk dirty in Hawaiian
Say the words I long to hear.

(There’s more)

Well, I bought a lota junka with my moola
And I sent it to the folks back home
I never had a chance to dance the hula
Well, I guess I should have known
When you start talkin’
To the sweet wahenie
Walkin’ in the pale moonlight
Oaka Noaka what I said
Naaka Waaka Siscum baakas
Hope I said it right.

Lets’ talk dirty in Hawaiian
Whisper in my ear
Kicka puka maaka waawaa heenee
Are the words I long to hear
Lay your coconut on my ticky
Whata hecka mooka mooka dear.
Let’s talk dirty in Hawaiian
Say the words I long to hear.
Let’s talk dirty in Hawaiian
Say the words I long to hear. (spoken “Aloha”)
