Track Name: Song of the Bandit
Long, long ago in old Wyoming lived a maid,
Fair as the sweetest flower bloomin’ in the glade
She loved a bandit bold who roamed the prairie o’er
And every night she’d listen for his call
Then, far to the west, his voice came ringin’,
Ridin’ a wild horse, he came singin’…
“Hee lee o lee yip I o lee aye!”

“Hee lee o lee yip I o lee, yip I o lee aye!”
He brings a token to his love
Swift as the wind he goes
High in the hills he knows she’s waiting singing,
“Hee lee o lee yip I o lee aye!”
“Hee lee o lee yip I o lee aye!”

One day he rode away but never to return
Danger was waiting now, his love must never yearn
Long days and lonely nights she waited all in vain
Till winter passed and summer came again
Still every night when the moon came shining,
For his song her heart was pining…
“Hee lee o lee yip I o lee aye!”

“Hee lee o lee yip I o lee, yip I o lee aye!”
He brings a token to his love
Swift as the wind he goes
High in the hills he knows she’s waiting singing,
“Hee lee o lee yip I o lee aye!”
“Hee lee o lee yip I o lee aye!”

One night an angel brought a message from her love.
Told her he waited in the starlight sky above
Softly, she closed her eyes and bade the angels go
And then the whole world echoed to his song
For straight down a moonbeam he came riding,
Out of the sky on a winged horse gliding…
“Hee lee o lee yip I o lee aye!”

“Hee lee o lee yip I o lee, yip I o lee aye!”
He brings a token to his love
Swift as the wind he goes
High in the hills he knows she’s waiting singing,
“Hee lee o lee yip I o lee aye!”
“Hee lee o lee yip I o lee aye!”
Track Name: Sweet Leilani
Sweet Leilani
Heavenly flower
Nature fashioned roses kissed with dew
And then she placed them in a bower
It was the start of you.
Sweet Leilani
Heavenly flower
I dreamed of paradise for two.
You are my paradise completed.
You are my dream come true.

Sweet Leilani
Heavenly flower
Tropic skies are jealous as they shine
I think they're jealous of your blue eyes
Jealous because you're mine.
Sweet Leilani
Heavenly flower
I dreamed of paradise for two.
You are my paradise completed.
You are my dream come true.

You are my paradise completed.
You are my dream come true.
