MAKIN' WICKY-WACKY IN WAIKIKI James Cavanaugh / Billy Curtis / Burton Lane / Al Hoffman as recorded by Sophie Tucker with Ted Shapiro & Harry Bidgood's Broadcasters 1930 London also recorded by - Al Bowlly w The New Mayfair Orch '31 Billy Cotton & his Band '31 Pack up your troubles, come on along, Where nights are dreamy and life's a song; In Honolulu across the sea, Makin' wicky-wacky down in Waikiki. Those hula dancers are sure good news, Those joy dispensers a cure for the blues; It's absolutley the place to be, Makin' wicky-wacky down in Waikiki. No evening clothes, Anything goes, Believe it or not! And when the night shadows fall, That's when they're all Getting hot, On the ukelele! They use a moonbeam to light the night, And every tune seems to sound just right! It's absolutely the place to be, Makin' wicky-wacky down in Waikiki. Come with me, all you wooky makers, All you wideawakers, join me! Oh boy, I've just found a spot, Uh-huh, you're gonna like it a lot! And it's far away, hope in Honolulu, Where the hula-hula greets you. Hawaii's the place, Get a smile on your face! And I wanna go where they shake their hips, That's where the sailors all shake their ships! You wouldn't blame me if you could be Makin' wicky-wacky down in Waikiki. You get a feeling of pure delight, Your head is reeling, your heart is light, Your eyes are dancing with revelry, Makin' wicky-wacky down in Waikiki. You never saw Dresses of straw Like they're wearin' there! And all those dances they do, There's nothing you Can compare; What a revelation! Hawaiian cuties with goo-goo eyes, And they're beauties, you'd be surprised! You're never lonesome for company, Makin' wicky-wacky down in Waikiki. Hey, you never saw Dresses of straw Like they're wearin' there! And all those dances they do, There's nothing you Can compare; What a revelation! Hawaiian cuties with goo-goo eyes, Oh, and are they beautie?, You'd be surprised! You're never lonesome for company, Makin' wicky-wacky down in Waikiki.
