Another mele by Maryjane Kulani Montano, 1919.

LAIMI.

Onaona na paia o Laimi,
Nohea i ka pua laniuma;
Ohaoha i ke kipaiula,
Hooipo a ka ua Haao;
Hu’ihu’i aala o na wao.

Kulia ia pua i ka nuu,
Makia paalani i ka moku;
Ka wahine aloanu o ka uka,
I ka nahele aala o Laimi.

A he nani no Waipuhia,
Kilihau lehua o Moelana;
Lana ae ka manao e ike,
Ia Kahuelanawai [Kahuailanawai] kaulana;
Wai hii puakou o ka uka,
A ka u’i e lei mau ai.

He inoa no Julia Afong.

MARYJANE KULANI MONTANO.

[This name song (mele inoa) for Julia Afong (daughter of Chun Afong and Julia Fayerweather) is another composition by famous composer Mary Jane Kulani Montano, sister of Julia Fayerweather and therefore aunt of Julia Afong. Laimi it seems was the name of the family home on Nuuanu Avenue.]
