Humuhumunukunukuapua'a is the song featured on the High School Musical 2 soundtrack. It is sung by Sharpay and Ryan Evans. It is the song that Sharpay and Ryan were going to sing for the Lava Springs Country Club talent show.

High School Musical 2

In it, Sharpay attempts to convince Troy to sing with her in the talent show. She has Fulton summon him to a hidden stage, and Troy is forced to watch as the song plays. This results in making him late for his date with Gabriella. Sharpay is the Pineapple Princess Tiki, who is "sweet as a peach, in a pineapple way" and "so sad that she hardly speaky". She dreams of a boy (Troy) who has been turned into a fish by an evil spell, and prays to the might spirit Fufu, a plug-in volcano. During the song, Ryan acts as narrator, fish, sound effects operator, special effects coordinator, and back-up singer.

As Sharpay leans over Troy showing him his lines in the song (one chorus), Ryan realizes that he's not going to be the prince as he and Sharpay discussed, and is disappointed. Sharpay tries to convince Troy that they are meant for each other, and Troy distracts her by complimenting her shoes. He escapes to join Gabriella by the pool.

Lyrics

Ryan:
A long time ago in a land far away
Lived the pineapple princess, Tiki
She was sweet as a peach in a pineapple way
But so sad that she hardly speaky

Still if you listen well
You'll hear her secret wish

Sharpay (Ryan):
Aloha, everybody, my name is Tiki!
I long to free a truly remarkable fish
My sweet prince

Sharpay with Ryan harmonizing:
Humuhumunukunukuapua'a
Makihiki malahini hu
Humuhumunukunukuapua'a
Ooh hawana waka waka waka niki pu pu pu

Sharpay:
Ryan? The fog!

Ryan:
She dreams of a boy who is under a spell
That has left him all wet and scaly

(Ryan and) Sharpay:
I sing from my heart with the power of love
Just a girl with a u(kulele)

Come to me my sweet one (Ryan: come to her)
And

Ryan and Sharpay:
Be still

Sharpay:
I'll grasp your tail
And stroke each tender gill
My sweet prince

Humuhumunukunukuapua'a
Makihiki malahini hu
Humuhumunukunukuapua'a
Ooh hawana waka waka waka niki pu pu pu

Now this is where we lean into the whole kabuki thing.

The clouds turned grey and the big sky cried
And the ocean had a fit
Ryan, where's my ocean?
Then the wind went whoosh and thunder cracked
And mighty Mount Fufu spit
Mighty Mount Fufu spit!

Ryan:
T-t-t-tiki, T-tiki
Wanna speaky, speaky, speaky
With the mighty spirit Fufu
T-t-t-tiki, T-tiki
Wanna speaky, speaky, speaky

Sharpay:
The words I will not mince (Ryan: oh!)
Please make a man of my fresh...fish...prince!

This is real fish talk, no lie.
(Sharpay speaks in a fish language)
And then the fish turns into a gorgeous prince and sings...

I'm Prince!
Humuhumunukunukuapua'a
Makihiki malahini hu
With me!
Humuhumunukunukuapua'a
Ooh hawana waka waka waka niki pu pu pu

Everybody!

Ryan and Sharpay with the Sharpettes:
Humuhumunukuapua'a
Makihiki malahini hu
Humuhumunukunukuapua'a
Ooh hawana waka waka waka niki pu pu pu
waka waka waka niki pu pu pu
Waka waka waka niki pu! pu! pu!

Sharpay:
Ah!
