A Name Song For the New Royal Scion.

Princess Victoria Kawekiui Kaiulani Lunalilo Kalaniahilapalapa.

Kau kehakeha ana i ka lai la,
Na maka hoonohenohe la,
E mahie oiala ua lia loko la,
Na pua Ohai o Kahelu la.

Imi ia kou akamai a nui la,
I laka ka I-a o ka moana la,

E ao oe o ike la,

O ka hiu nei nana i kapeku la,
Puni ai na moku ia Kalani la.

I pakele aku no hoi oe la,
I waiho ia ‘ku e Limaloa la,
Hoona ae ai ka manao la,
Aia ke ola i Waiolono la.

No ka pua iluna lilo ka puana la,
No ka lani kapu o Hawaii la,
E o e ka lani lei hiwa la,
O Kaiulani he inoa la.

A ka la i kupu ai ka manao la,

E ake e ike i ka Ailana la,

Na ka Maliana i lawe lai la,
Piha pono na pea i ka makani la,
O ka Hae Kalaunu welowelo la,
Haaheo i ka ili o ke kai la.

He ikena ka’u i ka ohuohu la,
Na Ukali Hanohano o ka leo la,
Na lipine kowelo Kelani la,
Liliuonamoku ko luna la.

Kui lua na pu o ke aloha la,
Honehone na leo o ka Pila la,
Kamahao ke aloha i hiki mai la,
No ke one o Kakuihewa la.

No ka pua iluna lilo ka puana la,
No ka Lani kapu o Hawaii la,
E o e ka lani lei hiwa la,
O Kaiuonalani he inoa la.

Keliimoewai.

Ka hehina ka aina o Kawelo la,
Pa kahea a ke kupa la,
E kipa, eia ke aloha la.

Kau aku na maka o ka ike la,

He ma-u ia, he pahee la.

Ka ihona i Huleia hoolana la,
Ka boti o ka Lani Kalakaua la,
Na Kaiu, Puhiula i kaiue la,
Like ole ka hoena i ka wai la.

Ka anoi hiki mai ka manawa la,
He mai-e komo, ua lai la.

No ka pua iluna lilo ka puana la,
No ka lani kapu o Hawaii,
E o e ka lani lei hiwa la,
O Kaiuonalani he inoa la.

Keliihulahoowali.

A Wailua alo lahilahi la,

Lea’i kahela a Kapaa la,
I ka noho a Kapahi i ka uka la.

He halia ‘loha kai hiki mai la,
No na Kawaihau i ka iu la,

Ke hea mai nei Waiehu la,
Kaua i ka wai awe i ka pali la,
E inu iho ai a kena la,

Na manu hoolai i ka home la,
Na hula hoowali poahi la,

No ka pua iluna lilo ka puana la,
No ka lani kapu o Hawaii la,
E o e ka lani leihiwa la,
O Kaiuonalani he inoa la.

Kaleiluhia.

A Waimea i ka uluwehi la,
Aina wai ula Iliahi la,

A he Nila ka iniki i ka ili la.

Aia Limaloa i Mana la,

Hookele ia’ku ia moku la,
O ke Awa ia e kau ai la.

No ka pua luna lilo ka puana la,
No ka Lani kapu o Hawaii la,
E o e ka Lani lei hiwa la,
O Kaiuonalani he inoa la.

Panini.

Ike i ke one o Halalii la,
Na nalu ehuehu o Kaohia la,
Ka makani aheahe o Lehua la,
He mikioi ka lawena pili mai la.

Ea mai o Kaula i ke kai la,
Ua lai ka hikina a pili la,
Haaheo ka aina ia moku la,
A oi ike ia mamua la.

Ua nani he ma-u no ia la,
Ua ike i ke Ana o Ku la,

Ua paa keehena a ka Lani la.

Ua poni ia na Mokupuni la,
Poni kapu ia na ka welo kapu la,
Kiina mai ka hikina i Kumukahi la,
A ka welona a ka la i Lehua la.

No ka pua iluna lilo ka puana la,
No ka Lani kapu o Hawaii la,
E o e ka Lani lei hiwa la,
O Kaiuonalani he inoa la.

Puuwela.

[This mele inoa for Princess Kaiulani is also found under the title “He Inoa no Kaiulani” with the oki by the different composers found scattered in Ed. C. Holstein’s Ka Buke Mele o na Himeni Hawaii. There are variations between the two versions.]

He inoa no ka Pua Alii Hou.

King Kalakaua leaves for America, 1874.

The Alii, the King, boarded the battleship Benecia at 10 oʻclock and 30 minutes on the morning of this past Tuesday [11/17/1874] to go to the United States of America. When he reached the wharf, seaside of Halemahoe, it was an awesome sight; the seeing off by his subjects of the King on his travels to foreign lands. The people crowded together to shake his hand, give gifts, kiss his hand, and chant his name songs, but the King did not dawdle. When the skiff came by for him, accompanied by the Prince Regent [Kahu Aupuni] and the attendants, the sailors of the battleships Tenedos, Scout, and Benecia climbed the yard, and as the skiff moved on, the battery of Ainahou and the two British battleships each gave a 21 gun salute,— Continue reading

Another mele by Maryjane Kulani Montano, 1919.

LAIMI.

Onaona na paia o Laimi,
Nohea i ka pua laniuma;
Ohaoha i ke kipaiula,
Hooipo a ka ua Haao;
Hu’ihu’i aala o na wao.

Kulia ia pua i ka nuu,
Makia paalani i ka moku;
Ka wahine aloanu o ka uka,
I ka nahele aala o Laimi.

A he nani no Waipuhia,
Kilihau lehua o Moelana;
Lana ae ka manao e ike,
Ia Kahuelanawai [Kahuailanawai] kaulana;
Wai hii puakou o ka uka,
A ka u’i e lei mau ai.

He inoa no Julia Afong.

MARYJANE KULANI MONTANO.

[This name song (mele inoa) for Julia Afong (daughter of Chun Afong and Julia Fayerweather) is another composition by famous composer Mary Jane Kulani Montano, sister of Julia Fayerweather and therefore aunt of Julia Afong. Laimi it seems was the name of the family home on Nuuanu Avenue.]

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…]
