Mary Jane Montano composition for the Daughters and Sons of Hawaiian Warriors, 1922.

A NAME SONG FOR THE MAMAKAKAUA ASSOCIATION.

I

E na koa o Kamehameha,
E na Mamala hoa,
Nana i na’i na Moku;
Mai Hawaii a Kauai,
Honolulu ke Kaona Nui,
One kapu o Lolani,
Aia la ilaila, ilaila;
Na ala i aloha ia.

II

I kaua wiwo ole ia,
I na pali o Nuuanu.
I ke Kawelu o Lanihuli,
Huli hoi ua lanakila.
Hoolai na pololu,
A Hawaii nui a Keawe,
Aia la ilaila, ilaila;
Na ala i aloha ia.

III

Aia i ke kuahiwi,
I ka lau o ka Maile,
Aia i ke awaawa;
I ka nu’a o ka palai,
I ka wai paieie,
Ne a ke awapuhi,
Aia la ilaila, ilaila;
Na ala i aloha ia.

IV

Aia la i ka uka,
Hale o Kahalaopuna,
I na pali ku haaheo;
I ke ehu anuenue.
I ka wai a Kanaloa,
Wai ono a na manu,
Aia ilaila, ilaila;
Na ala i aloha ia.

Composed by MARYZANE [MARYJANE] KULANI MONTANO.

[This composition is by the same composer who wrote the lyrics to songs like “Old Plantation”. This here describes the mele as a inoa [name song] for the Ahahui o na Mamakakaua, or the Daughters and Sons of Hawaiian Warriors. I just wanted this to be findable online, so here it is without any English gloss…]

More from Duke Kahanamoku and the Olympics, 1912.

THE SWIMMING CHAMPION OF HAWAII IS HEARD FROM AGAIN.

KAHANAMOKU BREAKS HIS FASTEST RECORD IN GERMANY.

The news which had the town’s people in an uproar this past Monday was the news received by cable from Hamburg, Germany on that day, saying that Duke Kahanamoku could swim the distance of a hundred meters in a minute and a fifth of a second, which is the fastest time, not achieved by any other contender of the world.

Duke Kahanamoku holds the title of champion of the world for this distance of one hundred meters which he swam at Stockholm, Sweden, with a time of sixty-two and two-fifth seconds, but this record was broken by he himself, by two and one-fifth seconds, which has the people in town sure that he can swim this distance within sixty seconds, or a minute.

From that cable which arrived from Hamburg, Honolulu’s people can see that Kahanamoku is touring other lands before turning back to Hawaii.

This is the cable that was sent, telling of the joyful news to Hawaii’s people about Kahanamoku.

Hamburg, Germany. July 22—Today, Duke Kahanamoku, Jr. of Honolulu once again received the title of champion of the world in the 100 meter race held in the Olympic games. This is a new time for this distance, in a meet held here, in which many old-time athletes were invited. Kahanamoku swam the 100 meter race in one minute and a fifth of a second, which breaks his very own time of a minute two and two-fifth seconds which was gotten at Stockholm in a match for the championship.
