“Bali Ha’i” LYRICS

Mos’ people live on a lonely island
Lost in de middle of a foggy sea.
Mos’ people long fo’ another island,
One where dey know dey would lak to be.

Bali Ha’i
May call you
Any night, any day.
In your heart
You’ll hear it call you:
“Come away, come away.”

Bali Ha’i
Will whisper
On de wind of de sea:
“Here am I,
Your special island!
Come to me, come to me!”

Your own special hopes,
Your own special dreams,
Bloom on de hillside
And shine in de streams.

If you try,
You’ll find me
Where de sky meets de sea;
“Here am I,
Your special island!
Come to me, come to me!”

Bali Ha’i,
Bali Ha’i,
Bali Ha’i.

Someday you’ll see me,
Floatin’ in de sunshine,
My head stickin’ out
F’um a low-flyin’ cloud;
You’ll hear me call you,
Singin’ through de sunshine,
Sweet and clear as can be:

“Come to me,
Here am I,
Come to me!”

If you try,
You’ll find me
Where de sky meets de sea;
“Here am I,
Your special island!
Come to me, come to me!”

Bali Ha’i,
Bali Ha’i,
Bali Ha’i.
