THE BELLE OF HONOLULU.
Copyright, 1898, by J. Donigan.
Words and Music by Lee Johnson.

A high-toned gal has won me, a belle of sweet sixteen,
She is the swellest gal I've seen, this Honolulu hula queen,
For style and grace ma lady is ev'rything that's swell,
She is a dream, this Honolulu belle;
When she goes by, the ladies sigh, de coons all wink deir eyes;
And when ma gal goes down de line, the natives they all cry.*

Spoken.-Well, what do they cry? (This can be introduced at *, before
Chorus, by orchestra or singer on stage, if desired.)

Chorus.
She is a dream, ma Honolulu queen, the sweetest girl that ever was seen;
She is divine, this hula girl of mine, she is the belle of Honolulu.

Next Easter morn I'll wed her, this Oriental queen, [line,
Den wedding bells will sweetly chime, and with ma bride I'll fall in
All decked in orange blossoms, and silks and satins fine;
She'll soon be mine, this hula gal divine;
De choir will sing and chant a hymn when I put on de ring;
And when I march out with ma bride, the natives they will sing:-Cho.

The natives shout when she goes out, and this is what they cry:-Cho.

Then wedding bells will sweetly chime, and with my bride I'll fall in
All decked in orange blossoms, and silks and satins fine. [line,

The choir will sing and chant a hymn when I put on the ring;
And when I march out with my bride, the natives they will sing:-Cho.
