Hawaii '78     Israel (Bruddah Iz) Kamakawiwo'ole

 

From CD entitled "Facing Future", the lyrics address the Hawaiian people's loss of sovereignty to the United States, Jan. 17, 1893 at the hands of Sanford Dole (of sugar cane fame). In January 1893, a revolutionary “Committee of Safety,” organized by Sanford B. Dole and resident American businessmen, staged a coup d'etat against Queen Liliuokalani and overthrew her Kingdom of Hawaii monarchy with the tacit support of the United States.

 

If just for a day our king and queen
Would visit all these islands and saw everything
How would they feel about the changes of our land
Could you just imagine if they were around
And saw highways on their sacred grounds
How would they feel about this modern city life?

Tears would come from each other's eyes
As they would stop to realize
That our people are in great, great danger now
How would they feel?
Would their smiles be content, then cry?

Chorus:
Cry for the gods, cry for the people
Cry for the land that was taken away

Something In The Air     Thunderclap Newman   #37 in 1969

 

Call out the instigators
Because there's something in the air
We've got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution's here

And you know it's right

 

Hand out the arms and ammo
We're going to blast our way through here
We've got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution's here

And you know that it's right
