Hiilawe Song.

Kumaka ka ikena ia Hiilawe,
I ka Papa lohi mai o Maukele,
I pakele mai au i ka nui Manu,
Hauwalaau nei puni Waipio,
Aole no au e loaa mai,
He uhiwai au no ke kuahiwi,
He hiwahiwa au na ka makua,
He lei a-i na ke kupuna,
No Puna ke ala haliia mai,
Noho i ka wai-lele o Hiilawe,
I ka poli no au o Haiwahine,
I ka pali aloha a Hainakolo,
Hookolo aku au i ka nui Manu,
Ua like ke kaina me ka Uahoa,
Kuu hoa ia la o ka Lealea,
I ka nui manu iho haunaele,
E ole kuu nui piha Akamai,
Hala a’e na ale o ka Moana,
Hao mai ka moana kau e ka weli,
Mea ole ia i nei hookele,
Ka helena a Uleu pili ka uapo,
Honi malihini au me kuu aloha,
He aloha ia nani ua leiia,
Kuu pua Miulana poina ole,
Haina ia mai ana ka puana,
Mai poina oe i kuu aloha.
