  • A long time ago in a land far away lived the pineapple princess, Tiki.
    She was sweet as a peach, in a pineapple way, but so sad that she hardly speaky.
    Still, if you listen well, you'll hear her secret wish.

    Aloha, everybody, my name is Tiki!
    I long to free a truly remarkable fish
    My sweet prince.
    Humuhumunukunukuapua'a
    Makihiki malahini-who
    Humuhumunukunukuapua'a
    Ooh.
    Hawana waka waka waka niki pu pu pu.
    Ryan, the fog?

    She dreams of a boy who is under a spell that has left him all wet and scaly.

    I sing from my heart of the power of love,

    Just a girl with a ukulele.

    Come to me, my sweet one, and be still.
    I'll grasp your tail and stroke each tender gill
    My sweet prince.
    Humuhumunukunukuapua'a
    Makihiki malahini-who
    Humuhumunukunukuapua'a
    Ooh.
    Hawana waka waka waka niki pu pu pu.
    Now this is where we lean into the whole kabuki thing.

    The clouds turned gray, and the big sky cried, and the ocean had a fit.

    Ryan, where's my ocean!?

    Then the wind went whoosh, and thunder cracked, and mighty Mount Fufu spit.

    Mighty Mount Fufu spit!

    T-T-T-Tiki T-Tiki
    Wanna speaky, speaky, speaky with the mighty spirit Fufu.
    T-T-T-Tiki T-Tiki
    Wanna speaky,speaky,speaky

    So words I will not mince.
    Please make a man of my fresh fish prince.
    This is real fish talk, no lie
    And then the fish turns into a gorgeous prince and sings

    I'm prince Humuhumunukunukuapua'a
    Amakihiki malahini-who
    With me!
    Humuhumunukunukuapua'a
    Ooh
    Hawana waka waka waka niki pu pu pu.
    Everybody!

    Humuhumunukunukuapua'a
    Makihiki malahini-who
    Humuhumunukunukuapua'a
    Ooh.
    Hawana waka waka waka niki pu pu pu.
    Waka waka waka neakee pu pu pu.
    Waka waka waka neakee pu pu pu.
    Puu
