HE INOA NO KALANINUIAHILAPALAPA.

A he Wehi keia no Kaiulani
No ka Wohi kukahi lei a Kapili
A he pua Loke no Ainahau
Maoli Iliahi no Hawaii
Opuu liko hou no ka Hikina
No ka La hiki mai ma Kumukahi
Hookahi mea hou ua lono ia
Ma ke Kapikala nani a o Honolulu
A he lono Lanakila no ka Lahui
Me ka noho Kalaunu a o na Lani
Ua kui e ka lohe puni ke Kaona
Ua mau ke Ea o ka Aina
Welo haaheo e ka Hae Hawaii
Ma na welelau a o ka Honua
Aohe hana e a ka puuwai
A e pauma nei me ke aloha
Ua piha ka manao i ka uilani
No ka lono hauoli ua hiki mai
I lawea mai nei o ka Monowai
Nene aukai a o ka moana
Nawai no la e pakele aku
A he hana noii na ka imi loa
He loaa i ka welelau lihilihi
I ke kii hooheno a ka onohi
He Onohi pua ia no ke Kalaunu
A he lei no Kalani puuwai Kila
Kilakila kapukapu ke ike aku
Ka hiona o Kalaniahilapalapa
Me he pua hau ala no Maluaka
Ka popohe ohaoha i ka lihi wai
Nawai e ole hooheno ia
A he liko Ahihi no Panaewa
Aia i ka nua lehua o Hilo
Ka paia aala i ka uka o Puna
Ko leo e Kalani kuu i ka nahe
Kaili puuwai ke lohe aku
Pupukanioe no ke kuahiwi
Kahuli leo lea no kanahele
Ua nani hiehie oe e Kahiwa
E ka Wohi kukahi a o Hawaii
Haina ko Wehi kau i ka Hano
O Kawekiulani kuu Haku ia.
