Perry Como - "Sweet Leilani" lyrics

Sweet Leilani, heavenly flower oh.
I dreamt of paradise for two. ( My lovely Leilani )
You are my paradise completed. ( My lovely Leilani )
You are my dream come true.

Sweet Leilani, heavenly flower oh,
Tropic skies are jealous while they shine. ( My lovely Leilani )
I think they're jealous of your blue eyes. ( My lovely Leilani )
Jealous because you're mine.

I think they're jealous of your blue eyes. ( My lovely Leilani )
Jealous because you're mine.

Sweet Leilani, heavenly flower oh,
Nature's fashion roses kissed with dew. ( My lovely Leilani )
And then she placed them in a bower. ( My lovely Leilani )
It was the start of you.
My lovely Lei-lan-i.
