My Sweet Gardenia Lei - by Danny Kuaana & Bernie Kaai


Danny Kuaana



My sweet gardenia lei
You gave to me
Upon a moonlit night
At Waikīkī
A lover's melody
Just meant for two
A flower scented night
When I met you
Fondest memories of you
Are here haunting me now
Your faint perfume
I cannot forget
'Til you return to me
Again someday
Bringing me a song
And my sweet gardenia lei

Bernie Kaai
