Sweet Leilani
Bing Crosby Lyrics


Sweet Leilani
Heavenly flower
Nature fashioned roses kissed with dew
And then she placed them in a bower

It was the start of you
Sweet Leilani
Heavenly flower
I dreamed of paradise for two
You are my paradise completed
You are my dream come true

Sweet Leilani
Heavenly flower
Tropic skies are jealous as they shine
I think they're jealous of your blue eyes

Jealous because you're mine
Sweet Leilani
Heavenly flower
I dreamed of paradise for two

You are my paradise completed
You are my dream come true

You are my paradise completed
You are my dream come true

I named my German Shepherd puppy after this song...she was sooo delicate and so beautiful...she died of kidney failure at age 8 months. Since Leilani means "heavenly flower" I think the name was perfect for her...she is my Heavenly Flower now, and I miss her so much!

@Lisette Anderson hugs to you too, thanks for sharing her memory with us <3

@Lisette Anderson She sounds amazing. God bless you and your German shepherd🙏🏻💪🏻

Lisette Anderson

@Dennis Lawless Thank you so much! 🤗 She herself was remarkably strong of heart, and remarkably determined! Such a big heart in a small body.

Dennis Lawless

@Lisette Anderson Rip heavenly flower. Good on you for staying strong😉🙏🏻

Lisette Anderson

@Rebecca A Thank you kindly. It all went down 12 years ago...and I still cry over her memory. She was so young. And so beloved. Big hugs, and thank you 🤗

My grandmother said she actually sang this song with Bing while he was visiting wounded troops at Walter Reed Army Hospital!

My Mom always loved everything Hawaiian. My memories of her singing this to me when she tucked a flower behind my ear are very very precious. Thank you for this beautiful post.
