Welcome In, Hawaii

Bob Connelly
Language: English



Welcome in, Hawaii, welcome in,
Welcome in, Hawaii, welcome in,
Although you may not want us,
By God you know you got us,
So, welcome in, Hawaii, welcome in.

Cleveland is a spineless man, is he,
Cleveland is a spineless man, is he,
He says that we were wrong,
But he won't be with us long,
So, welcome in, Hawaii, welcome in.

Welcome in, Hawaii, welcome in,
Now Stevens helped big business steal your land,
Stevens helped big business steal your land,
For he brought in the Marines,
And they overthrew your Queen, (*)
So, welcome in, Hawaii, welcome in.

Welcome in, Hawaii, welcome in,
Ain't you glad our missionaries came to you?
New England missionaries came to you?
For these missionaries sons,
With their bibles and their guns,
Have welcomed in Hawaii, welcomed in.

Welcome in Hawaii, welcome in.
When Cleveland is no longer at the helm,
When Cleveland is no longer at the helm,
They'll be no hesitation,
when it comes to annexation
So, welcome in, Hawaii, welcome in.

Welcome in, Hawaii, welcome in,
Welcome in, Hawaii, welcome in,
Although you may not want us,
By God you know you got us,
So, welcome in, Hawaii, welcome in.
(*) La regina Lili’uokalani, deposta proprio nel 1893 quando gli USA si presero le Hawaii e ne fecero un protettorato affidato ai propri uomini d’affari. La regina, condannata agli arresti domiciliari presso la propria residenza, si consolò cantando, visto che è stata l’autrice di quasi tutte le più famose canzoni hawaiane ancora oggi universalmente note, come “Aloha ‘Oe” o “He Mele Lahui Hawaii”
