Holiday In Waikiki Chords


          E                                       F#m11 E
I won a competition in a little column in my local paper
       E                                                   F#m11 E
So I packed my bags and flew across the sea all on my local baker
  A                       B
Sailing to Hawaii in the U.S.A.
  E (w/ RIFF 1)
I'm just an English boy who won a holiday in Waikiki

I didn't realize it was commercialized when I unpacked my pieces
Because a genuine Hawaii ukulele cost me 30 guineas
And even when I'm swimming I have to pay
I'm just an English boy who won a holiday in Waikiki

    F#  RIFF 2   RIFF 1
Oh yeah, yeah

Across the coral sands I saw a hula hula dancing, looking pretty
I asked her where she came from and she said to me
"I come from New York City and my mother is Italian, and my dad's a Greek"
I'm just an English boy who won a holiday in Waikiki

It's a ooga ooga on the shining briny on the way to Kona
And in a little shack they had a little sign that said-a Coca Cola
And even all the grass skirts were of P.V.C.
I'm just an English boy who won a holiday in Waikiki

Oh yeah, yeah

In Waikiki
In Waikiki

About the artist behind Holiday In Waikiki Chords:

The Kinks were an English pop/rock group formed in 1963, and categorised as a British Invasion band, along with the other members of the so-called Big Four (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who). Despite being less commercially successful than these three contemporaries, mostly because of a four-year ban from the United States in the mid-to-late 1960s, the Kinks are cited among them as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time and have 12 top 40 hits in America.[1]

The band's early hard-driving singles set a standard in the mid-1960s for rock and roll, while albums such as Face to Face,[2] Something Else, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, Arthur and Muswell Hillbillies are highly regarded by fans, critics, and peers, and are considered amongst the most influential recordings of the era.[3]
