LYRICS OF ALOHA: Charisse

Back again sharing my compositions. I have three wonderful daughters who are so talented in music. I recorded “Sweet Leilani,” “The Lurline Song,” and now a song for my third daughter llima. Her first name is Charisse. So here are the lyrics to the song as recorded on the CD “Full Moon Over Kaua‘i.:

Charisse

Dancing and singing pretty eyes gleaming my sweet Charisse, smiling to all and everyone’s loving her too.

I fell in love right from the start with my sweet Charisse, how can I tell her she took my heart away.

Chorus: Someday when she tells me she loves me, happy we will be forever more. Dancing and singing pretty eyes gleaming my sweet Charisse, smiling to all and everyone’s loving her too. I fell in love right from the start with my sweet Charisse, how can I tell she took my heart away, some day when she tells me she loves me, happy we will be forever more, dancing and singing pretty eyes gleaming my sweet Charisse, smiling to all and everyone’s loving her too, I fell in love right from the start with my sweet Charisse now I am happy she’s dancing with me today, now I am happy she’s dancing with me today.
