    Aia ē lā i Hilo ē
    O ka nani ē o pua ka lehua ē

    I lei ē no ka malihini ē
    Kipa aku ai ē i ka ʻāina ē

    E ake au ē a e ʻike ē
    I ka nani ē o Waiākea ē

    Kilohi au ē o ka nani ē
    I ka ulu lehua ē aʻo Panaʻewa ē

    Haʻina ē mai ka puana ē
    O ka nani ē o pua ka lehua ē

    Aia i Hilo One ka ʻeha a ka manaʻo
    ʻO sweet ʻEmalia, ʻo koʻu aloha ia

    Nānā ke kolohe kiʻina i ka liko
    ʻIʻiwi pōlena, ʻo ka manu o ka uka

    Kohu ʻole ʻo ia ala i ka ʻī ʻana mai
    Eia me aʻu ka ʻiwi ʻo Heneri

    Haʻina ka puana aia i Hilo One
    ʻO sweet ʻEmalia ʻo koʻu aloha ia
