HE MELE NO MAKA LOPIKANA

(Hakuia e Mrs. Olivia K. Nakea)

Kaulana mai nei Maka Lopikana
Ka moho Kenakoa a o ke Kalana
Lana ae ka manao ona mana koho
O oe e ka moho a ka Lahui
Hoike piha oe a i kou nani
I kou naauao ame ka noeau
Imua oe a o na makaainana
A kau oe i ka Hae o ka lanakila
Kilakila mai nei Maka Lopikana
Ka moho Kenakoa a o ke Kalana
Haina ia mai ana ka puana
E koho pololei ia Maka Lopikana

[A SONG FOR MARK ROBINSON

(Composed by Mrs. Olivia K. Nakea)

Famous is Mark Robinson
The Senatorial candidate of the County
The voters are hopeful
That you are the representative of the Lahui
Reveal fully of your beauty
Of your expertise and wisdom
You appear before the people
Displaying the flag of victory
Majestic is Mark Robinson
The Senatorial candidate of the County
Let the refrain be told
Vote straight away for Mark Robinson]
