Moanikeala, 1893.

Moani ke Ala.

Auhea la o Moani ke Ala
Hoapili o Mi nei
O ke aha kau mea e paweo nei
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.

[This song credited to Leleiohoku is still often heard today. It would be nice to hear it sung with these lyrics!]

(Lei Momi, 7/5/1893, p. 3)

Moani ke Ala.

Ka Lei Momi, Buke I, Helu 11, Aoao 3. Iulai 5, 1893.
