Hawaiian Songs of This Age

Composed by Lena Machado

NONE NEI

Heaha neia hana a’e none nei
None ana paha i ke kumu o ka hana,
O kau hana maa mau ia,
Hoouluhua mau nohoi oe ia’u.
Heaha kou makemake e hana aku au,
Eia nohoi oe i ku’u poli e pili ala,
Pehea la au e hana aku ai,
Hoouluhua mau nohoi oe ia’u.
Oihoiha e none like aku kaua,
None ana i ka pili makemake
O kou makemake ua hooko ia
O ko’u nei la, aole loa
Haina kapuana ua mele ia
Heaha neia hana a’e none nei.

HOOHENOHENO

Hooheno hoohenoheno nohoi oe,
E ne-none nei i ku’u poli,
E hoolale, e hoolalelale mai ana,
E kiliopu hou kaua ia kawa
O kou makemake a’o ko’u noia
E miliopu-lima hou kaua ilaila
O oe a o wau wale no kei ike
I ka hana noeau a ke kupuna
Haina kapuana ua lohe ia
Hoohenoheno nohoi oe.

NANI KA OPUA

Nani ka Opua kaupono i Kahikina,
Hikina a ka La ma Kumukahi,
Hookahi mea nui ka manao e upu nei,
I ku’u Ipo ika la’i nani o Hilo.
Hilo hou ia ke aloha i pili paa pono
Pono oe pono au, pono pu kaua,
Kaua wale no kei ike ia nani
He nani i awaiaulu paa ia.
