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
I sailed to Hawaii in the U.S.A.
Im just an English boy who won a holiday in Waikiki

I didnt realize it was commercialized when I unpacked my cases
Because a genuine Hawaii ukulele cost me 30 guineas
And even when Im swimming I have to pay
Im 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 dads a Greek
Im just an English boy who won a holiday in Waikiki

Its a hooka, hooka on the shiny briny on a wake a hola
And in a little shack they had a little sign that said Coca Cola
And even all the grass skirts were PVC
Im just an English boy who won a holiday in Waikiki, oh yeah, yeah

In Waikiki, in Waikiki
