Man, da kine weather has been all kapakahi this week but today is turning out be beeeeeeaaaauuuuutiful! Lucky we live Hawai'i no?
One of da bestest days of da week is obviously today, Friday, and whether you call it Pau Hana Friday or da traditional "Aloha Friday", it kicks off with a song we ALL have heard, sung and probably have engraved in our hearts. Sadly, I don't hear it on da radio as often anymore and I guess it's anoddah fading 5-0 tradition but to help perpetuate it and keep it alive - especially for all da youngin's - hea's da words and a pretty cool video to go along with it.
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.
It's Aloha Friday, no work till Monday.
Ah Do Be Doo, Be Doo Be Doo Be Doo Be Doo
The cousins all here, drinking up my beer
got keikies running everywhere.
I got some poke on the side while mama's trying to hide
the Miller and the Heineken beer.
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.

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.
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.
It's Aloha Friday, no work 'til Monday.
Doo be doo, doo doo be, doo be doo be doo be doo!
C'mon now, if you not in a Feel Good Friday mood by now...... go home cook rice!
Ha ha ha! I nevah use dat one in long time.
