Manamea

11. Manamea (5:11)

(Lyrics: A. Hansen / Music: S. Matzen)


In The Days Of The Golden Past

Young Man Was Flabbergast

Seeing Young Girl In Her Blouse

Down By The Cottonhouse.


With His Feelings Quite Astir

He Walked Right Up To Her

Saying ´Hi How Do You Do?

My Name Is Frank And Who Are You?`


For A Sec She Checked Him Out

Somehow She Seemed In Doubt

But With a Smile Her Answer Came: ´Manamea Is My Name.`

And He Sang: ´Girl, Girl, Girl


Girl, Come Pick Me Up, Be The One

Manamea, You`re Like The Sun

Girl, Come Pick Me Up, Be The One

Manamea, My Precious One.`


She Said: ´You Sure Seem Nice Enough

But What I Want Might Be Too Tough

Couldn´t Take On Any Man

Who Looks Like A Naked Man.`


As He Did Not Understand

She Pointed With Her Tender Hand

To his Head And To His Limbs

Then It Started Dawn On Him.


And He Sang: ´Manamea, Precious One

Manamea, You´re Like The Sun

Manamea, You´re The One

Manamea, You´re Like The Sun.


Girl, Come Pick Me Up, Be The One

Manamea, You`re Like The Sun

Girl, Come Pick Me Up, Be The One

Manamea, My Precious One.`


On The Day He´d Been Waiting For

He Knocked Upon Her Door

And Sure Enough Her Eyes Did Glow

For He Was Tatooed From Head To Toe.

And He Sang: ´Girl, Girl, Girl


Girl, Come Pick Me Up, Be The One

Manamea, You`re Like The Sun

Girl, Come Pick Me Up, Be The One

Manamea, My Precious One

Manamea, My Precious One

Manamea, My Precious One.`
