Moanikeala, 1893.

Moani ke Ala.

I ka makani Puulena.

Chorus.

Ua kuhi au a he pono keia
Au e apaapa mai nei
E wiki mai oe i pono kaua
I olu au la e ke hoa.

Hoohihihi au la e ike aku
Ia wai mapunapuna
Rain Tuahine pio anuenue
Oia uka iuiu.

Eia au la ua wehi
Ua lia i ke onaona
Ia wai ono o ka lehua la
Wai mukiki a ka manu.
