Aia la i Kemamo,

Wai auau a ka wahine,
No Ledalani ke ala.

Aia ilaila kuu liko,
Aia ilaila ka lehua,

Ua like ka welona a ka la,
Ka mania i ka ili kai,
Me ka poli nahenahe o ka ipo,
O Ledalani, ke ala.

Aia ilaila kuu liko,

Aia i ka Lani Ehiku,

O Poloula ke hoa noho,

Ua i mai ia Iubita,
E pii au ma ka opua,
E kiss, a hoopumehana,

Aia ilaila kuu liko,
Aia me ia ka hiona,
Puia nae he moani,
Sweet Ledalani ke ala.

Adieu! kaua e ke hoa,
Ke hoi nei me ke aloha,
Me ka puuwai nahoahoa,
Ia Ledalani ke ala.

Aia ilaila kau home,
Iwaena o na Rose,
E honi iho la, he moani,
Sweet Leda Lani, ke ala.
