The melody this number is based on an old Tongan chant "Bula Lai," or "Bula Malaya," or "Bula Maleya," or… (different dialects, different transcriptions…), so the rhythm pattern for this song dates from before the colonisation of the islands and is therefore of Pacific origin. The melody is copyrighted by The Polynesian Culture Center, who are therefore credited for the song together with Tepper and Bennett.
