We love us some Don Ho, but we're a bit crestfallen to find out that not only were there lyrics penned to the greatest instrumental television theme song of all time, but they had nothing to do with McGarrett's hair or the fact that Herman Wedemeyer and one of Los Jalops are both graduates of Saint Mary's college of California. Instead, they are as follows:

"If you're feelin' lonely/You can come with me/Feel my arms around you/Lay beside the seaaaaaa/We will think of somethin' to do/Do it til it's perfect for you/And for me too/You can come with meeeee./So leave your world behind you/You can come with me/Sing a song I'll teach you/Live your fantasyyyyyyy/Love ya in a natural way/Doesn't matter what time of day/You and I play/You can come with meeeee/Won'tcha come with meeee/You can come with meeee."

Most TV theme songs have lyrics. I seem to remember a royalties situation where theme songs with lyrics get a larger payment. Usually 1 episode airs with the lyrics and that's enough to satisfy rights management/performance management requirements and a higher royalty payment. Next time you make it east, you can talk with a lawyer friend wh oused to be at CBS. He's got a file of all sorts of TV Theme song lyrics - that you would not think had lyrics. I've been trying to get him to put them on the internets for a while, but no luck... :-(
