Here I sit in sunny Hawai'i
Going from K2 off to Maui
In the to stomach of a silver bird
There squeezed out like a fresh cheese curd
Off I am to Kahului
To visit the lovely 'Iao Valley
Where the King Kamehameha
Fought a mighty mighty battle
Dammed the river with his enemies' bodies
As the people said, "Oh, damn!"
