A Tiki Torch For You

"A Tiki Torch For You"

Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

I let you slip away without a kiss

Wish I could call you an old flame

Got Hawaiian hot watchin' your sexy moves

I've only got myself to blame


At Imperial Palace, you tried to get me to dance

I was too shy, but now I've got a second chance

I still carry a tiki torch for you

Since I saw you dancin' in that Polynesian review

You're just a flirt in a grass skirt who I once knew

But I still carry a tiki torch for you


Who would've thought that after all these years

We'd meet again for Mai Tai's by the pool

In this concrete jungle with crab rangoon

If I passed you up again I'd be a fool


Should've shot for the moon, when you first swooned way back then

Now we're both back so take my hand and let's try again

'Cause I still carry a tiki torch for you

Since I saw you dancin' in that Polynesian review

You're just a flirt in a grass skirt who I once knew

But I still carry a tiki torch for you


The beat of the drums, the heat of hip-swaying rhythms

All-you-can-eat luau delicacies

You're as exotic as ever, it's now or never

I promise to be gentlemanly


Now here we are under desert palms and stars

My dream came true, I kissed you by the beachcomber bar

I still carry a tiki torch for you

Now you're dancin' so close, it's givin' me the big bamboo

We might move a little slower, coconuts hang a little lower, it's true

We may be older, but my torch will never smolder for you
