English version:

Greatest Ukulele Ever: White Sandy Beach Of Hawaii

Reactions: 
Language is 100% Japanese. However I can't understand a word :), so English lyrics below.


I saw you in my dreams
We were walking hand in hand
On a white, sandy beach of Hawaii
We were playing in the sun
We were having so much fun
on a white, sandy beach of Hawaii

The sound of the ocean
soothes my restless soul
The sound of the ocean
rocks me all night long

Those hot long summer days
Lying there in the sun
on a white, sandy beach of Hawaii

The sound of the ocean
soothes my restless soul
The sound of the ocean
rocks me all night long

Last night in my dreams
I saw your face again
We were there in the sun
on a white, sandy beach of Hawaii 



The happiest Japanese people I met live in Honolulu, HI :). This boy seems to live in Japan!
