Told is the tale of the mischievous one
Who fished out all the islands and captured the sun
His deeds and tasks I will unmask,
so that you'll understand
That before there was a Clark Kent,
there was a Hawaiian Suppa Man

He fished out the Islands with a magic hook,
There would've been more but somebody looked.
In blue morning sky, the sun he entwined
To slow down his flight, so kapa could dry

Chorus
Mischievous, marvelous, magical Maui,
hero of this land
The one, the only, the ultimate Hawaiian Suppa Man
Oh Maui, Maui, Maui, Hawaiian Suppa Man
Oh Maui, Maui, Maui, Hawaiian Suppa Man

The secret of fire was locked somewhere in time
So when the ahi died in the hale kuke, no way to reignite
So off he goes in search of those who hold the information
So that fire could be used by all the future generations

He found out the `Alae held the fire connection
But his plan of deception fell short of perfection
With no other choice he had to get mean
So he squeezed `Alae's throat until she screamed the secret.

Repeat chorus

    General CommentI love this song! It's great. I'm surprised that there are no comments on it. I really like the way its sung and the story it tells. Is it a Hawaiian folk story, does anyone know?
    Go Iz!

    General CommentMaui is actually a Hawaiian god. In hawaiian myths, he is accredited for pulling the islands from the sea, slowing the sun down so that the day would be long enough for kapa to dry. He also discovered the secret to fire so that it could be used by mankind.
