Hula for William Heen by Mary Robins, 1919.

HE HULA NO WILLIAM HEEN.

Kaulana mai nei o William Heen,
O ka loio hoi o ke Kalana,
Na ka nupepa i hai ae,
Loio Kaulana imi mea hou,
Nau no i nowelo aku,
Ahuwale Honolulu he aina nani,
He kulanakauhale ua ike ia,
Ki-pe dala o ke aupuni,
Uluhua i ke kani mai a ke Ao,
Ka moho loio waiwai ole,
E hui Hawaii me Kaleponi,
Haku ae i ko lei a lawa pono,
Moani ke ala o ka Miulana,
Pili paa o ka hana me oe ia.
O ka pine kaimana i ko umauma,
E hulali nei a mau loa aku,
Imua kaua a lanakila,
O ke Akua mana loa kou kokua,
Hea aku no au o mai oe,
O William Heen kou inoa.

Composed by MRS. MARY ROBINS,

Honolulu Harbor Lighthouse.

[Mary Robins is perhaps most well known for songs like “Royal Hawaiian Hotel,” “Lanai,” and “Honolulu Harbor.” This is a political song written for William Heen, running for City and County Attorney. Political mele like these were not uncommon during those days.]
