Very little of Hawaii is native, other than the surf board. The music is mostly from Spain and Portugal, although the tunings are Hawaiian. The yodeling is Austrian. The most common native language is Tagalog, because the plantation workers are all Filipinos. The Hawaiians were very concerned when they noticed they were losing their language and their traditions, so now they want to import Mongols to work the plantations.
Sonny Chillingworth went to a lot of effort to coax the words to this song out of a truck driver. The process involved a bottle of whiskey.
