1 Aloha Likelike
Ke Kiaaina hou,
Ke pani no S. Kipi,
Nona ke kanikau,
Mahalo ia oia;
Mai Hilo a Kau,
A hiki i Kohala,
Me Hamakua pu.

2 Aloha Likelike
Pomaikai no kakou;
Ua nana i kou maka,
Mahalo piha no:
E komo oli oe,
A hui me makou,
Ke pa’ipa’i nei na lima,
A oli na naau.

3 Ka ke Akua olele,
Oia kou panana,
A oia kou Palama,
A oia no kou La;
E ola e! E ola!
Ke Kiaaina hou;
E ke ‘Lii Likelike
E ola mau loa no.

[Melody, Boat Song.

Aloha Likelike
The new governor,
The replacement for S. Kipi,
Who is mourned for,
She is admired;
From Hilo to Kau,
Until Kohala,
Along with Hamakua.

Aloha Likelike
We are blessed;
We look at your visage,
Full of gratitude:
You come with joy,
And meet with us,
Our hands applaud,
And our hearts are happy.

The word of God,
Is your compass,
And it is your protection
It is your Sun;
Live! Live!
The new Governor;
O Alii Likelike
Long may you live.]
