A mele by the “Solomon” of Hawaii, William J. Sheldon, 1918.

A MELE FOR THE HAWAIIAN BOYS.

Here again is this mele which was composed for the Hawaiian boys who just left Hawaii for America to join the armed forces of the nation, to try all means to obtain peace in the future, and the composer recalls the famous words of the Conqueror of the Nation of Hawaii nei, “Law of the Splintered Paddle: let the old men and the old women go and lie by the roads, no one is to disturb them.”

These lines of mele were composed in English by our friend and famous composer of songs of these days, and in other words, the “Solomon,” Hon. William J. Sheldon (Kelekona). The music will be available soon as it is now being edited with great care.

I.

Farewell, farewell dear Hawaii,
Sweet land of song and aloha
Thy sons to duty’s call go forth,
To the front thy honor to bear.

Chorus:

Boys, when you get over there,
Don’t forget Hawaii aloha
For you, we will ever pray
That freedom and liberty be won.

II.

Thou are brave sons of Hawaii,
True to your country’s call,
Let Hawaii’s fame be known,
O Hawaii no ka oi.

(Aloha Aina, 6/21/1918, p. 2)
