Thread Name: Lyr Req: Suitors (O Le Le O Bahia) (trad. Brazil)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Suitors (O Le Le O Bahia) (trad. Brazil)
Here's how I learned this one back in the 70's:

There are suitors at my door (o le le a baiha)
Six or eight or even more (o le le a baiha)
And my father wants me wed (o le le a baiha)
Or at least that's what he said (o le le a baiha)

chorus:
O le o lai o le le a baiha
O le o lai o le le a baiha
O le o lai o le le a baiha
O le o lai o le le a baiha

So I told him that I will (o le le a baiha)
When the rivers run uphill (o le le a baiha)
When the pigs begin to fly (o le le a baiha)
Or the day before I die (o le le a baiha)

chorus
