Political mele for William Haʻehaʻe Heen composed by Helen K. Davis, 1923.

HE INOA NO HA’EHA’E.

He inoa keia no Ha’eha’e,
Ka moho a ka lahui ua lanakila.
Ko lei keia o ka hanohano,
Eia me oe e lei mau ai.
He wehi me kilakila i nohea ia,
Hookahi puuwai o ka lehulehu.
Ke hea mai nei a o Ha’eha’e,
O oe ka makou a e li’a mau ai.
E o ka inoa a o Ha’eha’e,
Ka moho lanakila me ka hanohano.
Haina mai ka puana he lei aloha,
Ua kau i ka hanohano ka luna wekiu.
Haina ka puana he lei i aloha ia,
Ha’eha’e e ka moho ua lanakila.

Hakuia e HELEN K. DAVIS

[A Name Song for Ha’eha’e

This is a name song for Ha’eha’e,
The people’s candidate who was victorious.
This is your lei of glory,
For you to wear always.
A majestic adornment of fine appearance,
The unified hearts of the people.
We call out to Ha’eha’e,
You are who we always yearn for.
Respond to the name song of Ha’eha’e,
The candidate victorious with honor.
Let the refrain be told of this lei of aloha,
Placed in glory in the heights above.
Let the refrain be told of the beloved lei,
Ha’eha’e is the victorious candidate.

Composed by HELEN K. DAVIS]
