This arrangement of "Aloha Oe" was composed by J. Dufourny, and licensed and released to Selected Sounds (APM Music) by Hans Haider. It was released from the Selected Sound music library album ST 175 - Hawaii & South Pacific in 1985; however, the original version was released as far back as 1969 from the Carmen music library album Carmen-2006 - The Aloha Hawaiians - Beautiful Isle of Somewhere. The song was written by Hawaii's last monarch, Queen Liliʻuokalani, after her arrest and imprisonment, and has become perhaps the most famous song of Hawaiian composition. In the context of SpongeBob, it seems to be semi-associated with the morning and characters sleeping.



  • This was initially the first-used APM track in the series, as the original airing of "Help Wanted" did not have a title card since the ending of the 1999 Kids' Choice Awards (which preceded the series premiere of SpongeBob SquarePants) was followed by the opening of the episode.
    • However, a title card was added in subsequent broadcasts of the episode, making Hawaiian Train the first-used APM track.
    • On most music services and on YouTube, the composer for this track (along with "Honolulu March") is incorrectly stated to be George Kulohakai and His Island Serenaders.
