NOTES
Awamori is a very strong Okinawan liquor (of which Awanami is a specific type). "haisai" is a fairly typical and well known Okinawan greeting. The Kariyushi is a beach resort in Okinawa. Yaeyama are a series of islands in Okinawa, and Misaki is a cape at the northern tip of Okinawa main island. Gasami is a blue crab that is native to Okinawa. The sanshi is a stringed instrument that's basically Okinawa's version of the shamisen (traditional Japanese stringed instrument). "The sorrowful Asadoya" refers to "Asadoya Yunta". "Asadoya Yunta" is a song that originated in Okinawa about a woman named Asadoya nu Kuyama, who was brave enough to reject a wedding proposal from a government official. Orion beer is a beer that is distributed in Okinawa, brewed by the Orion Brewery (together with Asahi Brewery). The "Manta Scramble" is an Okinawan event from spring to fall, in which there is a high probability of seeing Mantas. Therefore, divers from all over Japan come to Okinawa for this. In case you can't tell, this song was written about Okinawa!

Island beach 僕と居て頂戴
Love and Peace 夏は終わらない
ここは夢の Bali-Hai
明日(あした)帰りとうない No no no

Night and Day 君とやり放題
泡盛で古酒(くーすー)飲み放題
後は踊ろう Paradise
決して離さない No no no

美(ちゅ)ら海(うみ) パイの実 咲かせてハイサイ
君にカリユシ届けましょう
嗚呼 ハスノハギリの木陰でヨイヨイ
心 陽気に唄いましょう

夜の八重山 美崎の界隈
粋な島唄 囃し立て
嗚呼 ガサミ 泡波 酔わせてウイウイ
いつも元気に暮らしましょう

あれは神の島 遥か国よ
青い海の色 風の詩(うた)よ

Mamas and Papas 夢のカリフォルニア
Black and Soul 愛のフィラデルフィア
三線(さんしん)哀しい 安里屋(あさどや)
そして Orion beer, No no no no

美ら海 パイの実 咲かせてハイサイ
君にカリユシ届けましょう
嗚呼 ハスノハギリの木陰でヨイヨイ
心 陽気に唄いましょう

夜の八重山 美崎の界隈
粋な島唄 囃し立て
嗚呼 ガサミ 泡波 酔わせてウイウイ
いつも元気に暮らしましょう

白い星の砂 寄せる波よ
愛しい女性(ひと)のため 逢いに来たよ

泳いで湾岸の Corner
久宇良(くうら)ビーチは Sunset
楽園のマンタスクランブル
Come to me

愛と感動を Stir it up!!
ミンサー織りはVelvet
ポークランチョンミート,マンゴー!!
Come to me
おいで

あれは神の島 遥か国よ
青い海の色 風の詩よ

白い星の砂 寄せる波の音
愛しい女性のため 逢いに来たよ
