Mele inoa for the amazing Kaluaikoolau, 1894.

Ke Aiwaiwa Koolau.

He ohohia nui,
Nou a e Koolau,
Ke Aiwaiwa,
Na pali kiekie,
Kalalau ka i luna
Alahaka i Nualolo,
Ua kohu auhau,
Kokolo i Makuaiki,
Koolau o Mano,
Kau e ka weliweli,
Mea ole na koa,
I ke ki pololei,
Aole i hopo iho,
Keiki Koolau,
Ka aloalo ana,
I ke ehu poka,
Hoopili eheu,
Iwa e ka hoa like,
Hoi nele kahi muumuu,
Hosake ipukai,
Kai no ua lawa,
Na koa Pi Gi,
Hoohoa aku ai,
Ke kupua Kilioe,
O oe e ka oi,
Ke ahi o Kamaile,
Haina ka puana,
Ai manu Koolau.
