Thread Name: Lyr Add: Aloha 'oe / Farewell to thee
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Aloha 'oe / Farewell to thee
Thanks! I have always loved Hawaiian Music. For some reason, my mother always used to say that Aloha 'oe was about how the Queen was separated from her people & under a an imposed house arrest as the missionaries did not approve of how she lived/influence on her people/religion, & whatever. When I was with Hawaiian friends learning their Music years ago, I was young & having too much fun with the Music to ask all of the philosophical & historical stuff.
