  1. In the name of the Heavens, please tell me that is just one song sung by Hawaiian children!!!!!
    I had a cassette back in ’78-79 if a children’s choral, but lost it.
    My daughter and I want it so bad.
    If you do not have it, PLEASE direct to a place I can purchase one.
    Thanks,
    A Dad

  2. Hey Dave, I heard this song in Hawaii on the radio when we were visiting there and I searched all over for it too (that’s how I stumbled upon this website and your comment) Anyhow, just wanted to let you know I think I found it. Search for “Twelve Days of Christmas” by the Waimanalo Keikis. Good luck and Merry Xmas.
