    Aloha Hālawa i ka nāulu
    Hoa pili o ke ‘ala o ka ‘awapuhi

    He ‘āina maika‘i ‘o Wailau
    Me ke kuahiwi nani o Oloku‘i

    Ma‘ema‘e Pelekunu i ka ‘ehu kai
    Hia‘ai ka mana‘o o ka lehulehu

    Maika‘i Waikolu i ka mā‘e‘ele
    Ho‘opumehana i ka pu‘uwai hāmama

    Puana ka inoa o Moloka‘i
    Aloha Ko‘olau i ka‘u ‘ike
