KAPILIULA SONG

Ikemaka i ka nani o Kapiliula,
Hoohihi ka manao me ka makemake;
Ia wai kaulana o ka aina,
Makaikaiia e ka malihini.

Ua inu ia wai ono hu’ihu’i,
Ia wai kahe mai i ke kumupali;
O ka nee a ka ua me ka makani,
Mea ole nae ia i nei hookele.

Ilaila kamau kiaha bia,
Olu ai ka hele ana o ia kula loa;
Ua lei i ka pua a o ka lehua,
Ua ai i ka hua ohelo papa.

He nui na ono a o ia uka,
O ka lua leko me ka hoio;
Ku au mahalo aku o ka nani,
I ka papa auwai a ke aupuni.

Moani ke ala o ke kiele,
E kono mai ana ia’u e hoi;
Kau aku i ke kaa otomobile,
Olapa ka uwila i Kipahulu.

Aina a ka nani me ka maikai,
Kaulana i ka makani lawe huapala.

Kipa aku i ka hale kamaaina,
Ai i ka opae mahikihiki;
Ilaila hoohihi kahi manao,
I ka hanu aala o pua roselani.

E hoi kakou ua ahiahi,
E ike i ka wai a o Kumaka,
Ilaila makou miki wahi poi,
Ohua o ke kai ka’u i’a ia.

Ua lawa ka iini me ka makemake,
I ka ua Apuakea o Hana;
Hainaia mai ana ka puana,
E hoi ke aloha i Kapiliula.

Haina hou ia mai ka puana,
Malihini kaahele puni o Maui.

HE WEHI ALOHA NO KALANIANAOLE.

He inoa nou e Kalanianaole,
Ka onohi momi a o Hawaii nei.

He mea nui oe na ka lahui,
Milimili na ka Ua Kukalahale.

Ua ku’i e ka lono puni na moku,
O Kalanianaole ua hele loa.

Aia paha oe i Amerika,
I ka uluwehi a o Wakinekona.

Ua kohoia oe e ka lahui,
I wahaolelo no Hawaii.

Kakooia e ka ili keokeo,
Repubalika kou baloka. Continue reading
