This song was featured in "Christmas Vacation" and was written by R. Alex Anderson.  

Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say
on a bright Hawaiian Christmas day.

That's the island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway.
C                                  C7
Here we know that Christmas will be  green and bright
    E7                                A7       D7
the sun will shine by day and all the stars by night
G                    G7     E7
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii's way
 Am         D7              G
to say "Merry Christmas" to you.

solo, then repeat

"Christmas Vacation", eh? Never seen it, but love this song, and have been listening it since I was a young kid over 40 years ago.

Just a suggestion re your chords. The line "Here we know that Christmas will be clean and bright"

You've got the whole thing with a C chord (into a C7).

Try (E) Here we know that Xmas will be (Am) green & bright.

Then in the next line, you've got an A7 over the "stars" word (in "...stars by night". Just try swapping that A7 for an A minor and you'll hear the difference. It also essentially repeats the last line, although then ends up visiting the fifth (dominant). This is, of course, a definite invitation to resolve back to the tonic (1st), which, of course, this little ditty does. It's not THAT complex :-)
