Lyrics
I won a competition in a little column in my local paper
So I packed my bags and flew across the sea all on my local paper
Sailing to Hawaii in the U.S.A.
I'm just an English boy who won a holiday in Waikiki

I didn't realize it was commercialized when I unpacked my cases
Because a genuine Hawaii ukulele cost me thirty guineas
And even when I'm swimming I have to pay
I'm just an English boy who won a holiday in Waikiki
Oh yeah, yeah

Across the coral sands I saw a hula hula dancer, looking pretty
I asked her where she came from and she said to me
I come from New York City
And my mother is Italian
And my dad's a Greek
I'm just an English boy who won a holiday in Waikiki

It's a hooka hooka on the shiny briny on the way to Kona
And in a little shack they had a little sign that said Coca Cola
And even all the grass skirts were PVC
I'm just an English boy who won a holiday in Waikiki
Oh yeah, yeah

In Waikiki
In Waikiki
