Mary Jane Montano composition for the Daughters and Sons of Hawaiian Warriors, 1922.

A NAME SONG FOR THE MAMAKAKAUA ASSOCIATION.

I

E na koa o Kamehameha,
E na Mamala hoa,
Nana i na’i na Moku;
Mai Hawaii a Kauai,
Honolulu ke Kaona Nui,
One kapu o Lolani,
Aia la ilaila, ilaila;
Na ala i aloha ia.

II

I kaua wiwo ole ia,
I na pali o Nuuanu.
I ke Kawelu o Lanihuli,
Huli hoi ua lanakila.
Hoolai na pololu,
A Hawaii nui a Keawe,
Aia la ilaila, ilaila;
Na ala i aloha ia.

III

Aia i ke kuahiwi,
I ka lau o ka Maile,
Aia i ke awaawa;
I ka nu’a o ka palai,
I ka wai paieie,
Ne a ke awapuhi,
Aia la ilaila, ilaila;
Na ala i aloha ia.

IV

Aia la i ka uka,
Hale o Kahalaopuna,
I na pali ku haaheo;
I ke ehu anuenue.
I ka wai a Kanaloa,
Wai ono a na manu,
Aia ilaila, ilaila;
Na ala i aloha ia.

Composed by MARYZANE [MARYJANE] KULANI MONTANO.

[This composition is by the same composer who wrote the lyrics to songs like “Old Plantation”. This here describes the mele as a inoa [name song] for the Ahahui o na Mamakakaua, or the Daughters and Sons of Hawaiian Warriors. I just wanted this to be findable online, so here it is without any English gloss…]
