HE MELE NO MAKA LOPIKANA

(Hakuia e Mrs. Olivia K. Nakea)

Kaulana mai nei Maka Lopikana
Ka moho Kenakoa a o ke Kalana
Lana ae ka manao ona mana koho
O oe e ka moho a ka Lahui.
Hoike piha oe a i kou nani
I kou naauao ame ka noeau
Imua oe a o na makaainana
A kau oe i ka Hae o ka lanakila.
Kilakila mai nei Maka Lopikana
Ka moho Kenakoa a o ke Kalana
Haina ia mai ana ka puana
E koho pololie ia Maka Lopikana.

[A MELE FOR MARK ROBINSON

(Composed by Mrs. Olivia K. Nakea)

Famous is Mark Robinson
Candidate for Senator of the County
The voters are hopeful
That you will be the representative of the Lahui.
Display your splendor
Your knowledge and wisdom
You stand before the citizens
And you display the winning banner.
Admirable is Mark Robinson
Candidate for Senator of the County
Let the refrain be told
Vote straight away for Mark Robinson.]
