        O neia kapo
        Nou ka ha lia e Kalua
        Nou no e kaiini
        Aka puuwai o
        Waila kahalia a loha a Kalua

        O wai hahalia
        O wai hahalia
        Hoo heno nei ka ipo
        Ia oe e Kalua
        Kapua i mo hala
        Ike au moe

        Hii poi ike aloha
        Ma kawae
        No no kau a kau
        Nou ka iinie Kalua

        This is the night of love
        The shining hour of Kalua
        Her song is in the air
        Her lips are waiting there
        Who will be Kalua's only love?

        Who will her lover be?
        Who will her lover be?

        Before the night is old
        My [his] arms will hold Kalua
        And where the trandewinds blow
        Soft and low

        Our love will blossom bright
        In the night
        And stars will sing above
        The love song of Kalua.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Mr. Roarke: Good morning Tattoo, oh isn't it a glorious day.
        Tattoo: If you say so. (Chester the chimpanzee comes running over to Tattoo) Sit.
        Mr. Roarke: Tattoo, why on Earth is Chester dressed like a convict?
        Tattoo: Because he's a thief and by dressing him in a thief's outfit, I'm trying to teach him how not to steal.
        Mr. Roarke: But Tattoo, Chester is only a chimpanzee.
        Tattoo: I know that, Boss but remember last year when I teach him how to play checkers and he beat everybody on the Island, right.
        Mr. Roarke: Right and I am fully ready to admit that you are a wonderful teacher and Chester is a very clever animal, but the point is he is an animal and checkers is a game. The sense of right and wrong is an abstract, Tattoo, a thought process far beyond his capabilities consequently he could never grasp that concept which means he could never really be a thief. Don't you see.
        Tattoo: But Boss, even though he steals my car every night.
        Mr. Roarke: He's merely having fun.
        Tattoo: Oh maybe your right even though he stole your beautiful ivory chess set last night.
        Mr. Roarke: He did what!
        Tattoo: I found a couple of pieces in his room and I think he also ate a couple.
        Mr. Roarke: Why that dirty little thief!
