Ka Ukulele

What does "Halaka Ukulele" mean?

I was listening to "banana pancake" by Jack Johnson and one of the lyrics he says "Halaka Ukulele". I think it's Samoan but I'm not exactly sure, and I don't know what it means.

Sounds Hawaiian, which are descendants of Samoa. I lived in HI for about 4 yrs but don't know the language. I just did a search and found this answer, how correct it is I don't know but it sounds good.

hala ka ukulele... for you people that aren't from hawaii... is kind of a "naney-naney boo boo" thing. the saying goes "hala ka ukulele peanut butter jelly mama made a baby"... different variations to the saying jack johnson uses goes as follows "humbalah okolele peanut butter jelly mama kissed the baby" or "alanka lanka lele peanut butter jelly mama kissed the baby"... a kid would usually say that when another kid did something wrong (i.e. break a vase or flush a ring down the toilet)...

banana pancakes is a specialty dish in hawai'i. it's usually eaten with macadamia nut syrup.

it's ono-licious!
