Mele for the Claudine, the vessel that carried the commission of annexationists to Washington DC, 1893.

KELAUDINA SONG.

Kaulana mai nei Kelaudina
Ahailono o ka poe pakaha
Nau i lawe aku na komisina
O ke aupuni kuloko o Hawaii
Hopuhopualulu e ka hele’na
A na elele o ua aupuni nei
E ake ana e hookoia
Ka iini pakaha aina
Halawai aku nei lakou
Me kahi paele a Kalivilana
Ninau mai nei kahi paele
Mahea oukou pii mai
Pane aku nei o Kakina
Makou Hawaii pii mai
Makemake kuka Kalivilana
Hoohui kela aina makou
Me Amelika Huipuia
Nalo aku nei kahi paele
A hoi mai me ka pane ana
Kela Kalivilana olelo wau
Nuinui kela mahaoi oukou
Iaia kauoha wau olelo
Pehea oukou kuleana
Kipaku kela Moi Wai-hi
Haina ia mai ana ka puana
Hopuia Kelaudina me ka opiuma.

[CLAUDINE SONG

Renowned is the Claudine
The messenger of the thieves
It was you who carried the commission
Of the provisional government of Hawaii
The trip was rushed
By the representatives of said government
Wanting to fulfill
The desire to plunder the land
They met
With a black man of Cleveland
The black man questioned
Where did you all come from
Stevens responded
From Hawaii we come
Want to talk with Cleveland
We annex that land
With the United States
The black man went away
And returned with the answer
That Cleveland told me
So very impudent are you all
He commands me to say
What rights have you
To get rid of the Monarch of “Wai-hi”
Let the story be told
Claudine was seized with opium.
