COCKEYED MAYOR OF KAUNAKAKAI, THE R Alex Anderson / Al Stillman 1935 as recorded by The Andrews Sisters with Vic Schoen & his Orchestra April 23rd 1940 also recorded by - Ray Kinney with Dick McIntire's Harmony Hawaiians '35 Paul Whiteman & his Orchestra '60 Teresa Brewer with Dick Jacobs & his Orchestra '61 (different lyrics) Bing Crosby '61 (radio) Teresa Bright Naughty Abbie He wore a malo and a coconut hat, One was for this and the other for that! All the people shouted as he went by, He was the cockeyed mayor of Kaunakakai. He was just a lazy Malihini haole boy; All the girls were crazy To share his fish and poi! He wore a lei and he wore a smile, He drank a gallon of oke to make life worthwhile! Then he made 'em laugh till he made 'em cry, He was the cockeyed mayor of Kaunakakai. The horse he rode was skinny, A broken-down old female, So he placed a green panini Right under the horse's tail! Oh, he made her buck and he made her fly, All over the island of Molokai. You could hear the kanes and wahines cheer As they gave him a lei of kikanias. Now you've heard my story 'Bout the mayor of Kaunakakai, All his fame and glory On the island of Molokai. Oh, he wore a malo and a coconut hat, One was for this and the other for that! All the people shouted as he went by, He was the cockeyed mayor of Kaunakakai. Whenever anybody goes from the island, He's there to say, "Fare thee well!". He says, "Aloha-ho-ha-ho-ha-ho!", He's always sorry to see them go. He always wore a malo and a coconut hat, One was for this and the other for that! All the people shouted as he went by, He was the cockeyed mayor of Kaunakakai. He was just a lazy malihini, Malihini haole boy, But even so all the girls were crazy To share his fish and poi! They say that he treats 'em well and what everybody knows, The girls am all kissin' and he throws 'em a rose. He signs his pictures for 'em, one and all, And he gives them the keys to city hall! He wore a malo and a coconut hat, One was for this and the other for that! All the people shouted as he went by, He was the very cockeyed mayor of Kaunakakai!
