Somewhere on a South Pacific Island...

Somewhere on a South Pacific Island
Sits a young man staring at the surf
His native girlfriend died a death quite violent
A tribal sacrifice made to the Earth

She was brown, her hair was black, her eyes were blue
The Chief's daughter, Leilani was her name
She and her young man made a handsome two.
But lava tore them both apart again

Leilani don't go to the vocano
He'd say please don't go to the volcano

Oh no!
Oh!
Don't go!
Well, they were saving for a little hut
She collected seashells everyday
Every night they'd share a cigarette
But the ancient angry gods got in the way!

Leilani don't go to the
Well he'd plead please don't go!
I'll miss you so

Katoomba [hey!]
Macoomba [ho!]
Umgawah
Katoomba [hey!]
Macoomba [ho!]
Umgawah
Katoomba [hey!]
Macoomba [ho!]
UMGAWAH!

Still the young man sits there on the beach
Staring misty eyed out into space
He's thinking bout his girlfriend of late deceased
At least her death had purpose
His life is a waste!

Leilani don't go to the volcano
He'd say please don't go, I'll miss you so
Well, Leilani don't go, I love you, I love you so!
I said please don't go!
