Howzit! Sorry for the delay. I'm still trying to figuah things out with this blog program - das why hard. But...

We made it through another week and with all this b-e-autiful weather (minus da vog) we've been having, I couldn't help but hum a song into work that I haven't heard in ages so sing along - here's da words...

IT'S ALOHA FRIDAY
Here is where I sit, all cloudy and blitzed
with the Primo bottles lying everywhere
Got a guitar in my hand and a Wesson Oil can
Under my okole for a chair.

CHORUS:

It's Aloha Friday, no work till Monday.
Doo be doo, doo doo be, doo be doo be doo be doo!
(Repeat)

The cousins all here, drinking up my beer
got keikies running everywhere.
I got some poki on the side while mama's trying to hide
the Miller and the Heineken beer.
(CHORUS)

Spoken:
OK. You know when you wanna get away, I mean one ting
about Friday ma, da working work is ovah yeah.
Frankly, ya, I feel good man.
I work hard all week long.
I can't wait to get away, you know like down like the beach.
I'm cruise dis weekend yeah, get one hot concert too man,
dat's the most important ting. But main ting too,
is to get enough money fo gas and to go out to da disco.
I like to see all da beautiful chicks Yeah!
So now I gonna jus kinda cruise, take my Bank Americard,
you know adderwise, how can I get money?
Right, plus den my friends always say
eh braddah, you can buy me one drink then.

THIRD VERSE
Kimo and the crew sucking up the brew
pulehu meat smoking on the side
All the surfers are a-droppin'
while the highschool are a-poppin'
down Kaluakaua for a ride.

CHORUS:

It's Aloha Friday, no work 'til Monday.
Doo be doo, doo doo be, doo be doo be doo be doo!
REPEAT

Here's a little history about how "It's Aloha Friday" began - can't say it's true or not but it sure sounds good. I also found this site for all da "Katonks" jones'ing for some Hawaiian music: 50th State Radio.

In case you've forgotten what it sounds like, here's a feel good video...with some old school kickball thrown in for good measure.

SHOUT OUT: Much Mahalos Uncle...er, Braddah Rodney (Midlife Crisis blogger) for helping da young'n out with getting the video posted! I guess goes to show, da older da wiser yeah? :wink:

No fo'get - Salt Lake Elementary Fun Fair tomorrow 9am - 2pm. We all know each school does fairs to help raise money the state no can give so let's all kokua if can. No can, no can - no worries.

Have a grrrreeeeaaat Aloha Friday!  Cheee-hooo!
