Lyrics:

Sitting on the beach in Hanalei
I’m basking in the glory of a brand new day
Blue ocean waves kiss the rainbow sky
It’s another day in paradise

Then a mermaid she appeared to me
Beckoning for me to cross the sea
She has a secret she would share with me
If I came with her into the sea
(I said “where we going?”)

Say we’re going down to Panama
We got to go down there to Panama
Please don’t worry my sweet ohana
I’ve got to go to Panama

I told my family, they no believe
My auntie said “you’re smoking pakalolo leaf”
A leap of faith I’ll take this day you’ll see
By brother man it’s hard to leave my Kauai

Their mermaid queen, she’s trapped in their city
I got to go there in a real big hurry
Oh brother man I’ve got to leave real soon
But I don’t know what for I should do (hey)

Got to go down there to Panama
Got to spend some time in Panama
Please don’t worry my sweet ohana
I’ve got to go to Panama

I got to head down there to Panama
Mermaid emergency in Panama
Please don’t worry my sweet ohana
I’ve got to go to Panama

I know this girl, she lives in the city
Oh my, oh my, it is such a pity
She doesn’t want to leave her room
And don’t what for I should do
(I said “hey baby!”)

Come with me to the la playa
Together there we’ll eat some sweet papaya
Then we go and surf out on the ocean
On the waves created by our emotions

Hey let’s go down there to Panama
Let’s spend some time in Panama
Please don’t worry my sweet ohana
I’ve got to go to Panama

I got to go down there to Panama
Mermaid emergency in Panama
Some prefer the Colombia
But I love the Panama

Song Story:

There once was a man who lived in Hanalei on the island of Kauai.  Unbeknownst to him, he had secret powers granted to him from the faerie realm.  Because of this, a mermaid princess asked him to come with her across the sea to rescue the mermaid queen who is trapped in a city and has forgotten that she is a great being of myth and legend with power beyond imagination.
This man then accepts the quest and successfully rescues the mermaid queen by returning her to the ocean where she awakens to her hidden powers and is reunited with her elated fellow mermaids.
The mermaids return their hero to Hanalei where he lives on to go on many more adventures and quests.  This is the song he sang to his friends upon his return and is still heard by some to this very day.
