No Namaka Kailialoha laua o Alea Hoohihikeaumoe

Onaona kupaoa

Halihali maikai i ke aumoe

Mapu mau mai ana ke ala

O na pua i ka poli

 

Elua pua i kumaka

Pohai ia e na manu

E walea aku kaua

I ka pili lai o ke aloha

 

Na ka anoi e kau poohiwi

Aia i ka malu o Paliuli

Na ka makani e lawe pono mai

He mea ala maikai

 

He aloha, he puana aku no

No na pili hoohihi ka manao

Mapu mau mai ana ke ala

O na pua i ka poli
