Track Name: Koke'e Mist
Woke up early this morning, sun did greet I with a kiss
Get up, let's go now baby, we're heading up the Koke'e Mist
The Sun is shining high now, things are starting feel hotta
We gonna take the turn up mauka (toward the mountains)
To feel that coolin' vapor watta!

We're headin' up to the Koke'e mist

We gonna blaze a nice fiya
We gonna play on when the sun goes down
Feel the vibrations getting higher
Look up baby and watch the universe go 'round!

We're headin' up to the Koke'e mist!

We're singin' in the mountains, surrounded by these native trees
Ka makani (the wind) sweet sounds, blowin' mystic melodies
Na manu (the birds) they are singin', harmonies so pure and true
Ka noe (the mist) O Koke'e, keeps me holdin' on to you!

We're headin' up to the Koke'e mist!

We gonna blaze a nice fiya
We gonna play on when the sun goes down
Feel the vibrations getting higher
Look up baby and watch the universe go 'round!

We're headin' up to the Koke'e mist!
We're headin' up to the Koke'e mist!

Feel the vibrations getting higher
Look up baby and watch the universe go 'round!

We're headin' up to the Koke'e mist!
E hele mai I ka noe O Koke'e (Going to the Koke'e mist)
We're headin' up to the Koke'e mist!
E hele mai I ka noe O Koke'e
We're headin' up to the Koke'e mist!

Track Name: Ella's Song
So I hear you're coming soon, and I'm still trying to find the tune
In my heart I feel the rhythm and hear the rhyme
For inspiration I've got plenty, and this pen is working fine
But the time, oh the time keeps flying by

Cause I've got ten thousand love songs, to write for you my little girl
If I could only find the time
Cause I've got so much to do, I've got a world to share with you
And so I'll sing you the first one on my mind

If I could just slow down this moment, and you could look into my eyes
In your reflections where inspiration meets the time
And here we are in this moment, and I can look into your eyes
Here in the land where inspiration meets the time

Cause I've got ten thousand love songs, to write for you my little girl
If I could only find the time
Cause I've got so much to do, I've got a world to share with you
And so I'll sing you the first one on my mind

Now here we are some years later, you have sparkled and you still shine
And I'm sure you know the reasons why I smile
Cause my family keeps these songs comin', while the days keeping passing by
Here in the land where inspiration meets the time

Cause I've got ten thousand love songs, to write for you my little girl
If I could only find the time
Cause I've got so much to do, I've got a world to share with you
And so I'll sing you the first one on my mind

Cause I've got ten thousand love songs
Cause I've got ten thousand love songs
Cause I've got ten thousand love songs on my mind

Then it blew my mind, when the frog said, "ER ER ERRRRRRRR!!"

Lookin' out the window, laughing as I realize
It was just a chicken, who woke me up in the morning on my peaceful Kaua'i Island!
