In Honor of Kelly's Return
View of Kalaulau Valley from Koke'e State Park, HI

Maui: Hawaiian Sup'pa Man
As performed by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole

Oh There is a tale of the mischevious one
Who fished out all the islands and captured the sun.
His deeds and tasks I will unmask so that you'll understand,
That before there was a Clark Kent, there was a Hawaiian Sup'pa Man.

He fished out the islands with the magic pole
There would have been more, somebody knew
In blue morning sky, the sun he intwined
To slow down his flights to have a good time, yeah.

Mischevious, marvelous, magical Maui
Hero of this land
The one, the only, the ultimate Hawaiian Sup'pa Man.

Maui (Mischevious, marvelous, magical Maui)
Maui (Maui)
Maui
Hawaiian Sup'pa Man!
Maui
Oh, Maui
Oh, Maui
A Hawaiian Sup'pa Man!

The secret of fire was locked somewhere in time
So when the Ah, he died in the Halekouki,
No way to be recognized

So off he goes in search of those
Who hold the information
So fire could be used by all the future generations.

He found that Alli held the fire connection,
But his plan of deception fell short of perfection.
With no other choice, he had to get mean
So he squeezed Alli's throat unti she screamed the secret.

Mischevious, marvelous, magical Maui
Hero of this land
The one, the only, the ultimate
Hawaiian Sup'pa Man!

Maui (Mischevious, marvelous, magical Maui)
Maui (Maui)
Maui
Hawaiian Sup'pa Man!
Maui (Mischevious, marvelous, magical Maui)
Maui (Maui)
Oh Maui
Hawaiian Sup'pa Man! (Mischevious, marvelous, magical Maui)(Maui)
Maui (Hawaiian Sup'pa Man!)
(Maui)
(Hawaiian Sup'pa Man!)
