The version for the movie was written by Sid Wayne and Ben Weisman; RCA credited the song to Alex Gottlieb (screenplay) - Fred Karger (musical director from the movie) and Ben Weisman. It's unclear if the lyrics are re-written or the version by Syd Wayne-Ben Weisman is rejected. The tune is based on a version from the roaring twenties.

The song was written by Fuller-Weisman-Wise; when the title from the movie changed from The beach boy (script 17 october 1960) into Blue Hawaii (final script 23 february 1961) the song was rejected in the pre-selection.
