    Ma‘ema‘e ke kino o ka pala‘ā
    Uluwehi i uka a‘o Maunawili
    Hali‘a mai ana ka desire o loko
    Ka ‘i‘ini no ka pua mōhala i laila
    Ka ‘i‘ini no ka pua mōhala i laila

    Pulupē ko kāua ‘ili me ke kēhau
    ‘O ku‘u pua mōhala, eia i ka pu‘uwai
    Precious ‘ala kūpaoa, ‘olu‘olu a ka beauty
    Na ka lani punahele e milimili
    Na ka lani punahele e milimili

    Ua ‘ike iho au i ke aloha
    ‘O kou poli pumehana, nanea i ku‘u maka
    ‘Olu‘olu to mine heart e ha‘eha‘e nei
    Pili pa‘a kāua i ka ua mālie
    Pili pa‘a kāua i ka ua mālie

    E ka noe o ka lani e maliu mai
    Eia ka ‘ano‘i a ka love ma ‘ane‘i
    Hea aku nō wau e ō mai ‘oe
    Pua mōhala kau mai i luna i ka wēkiu
    Pua mōhala kau mai i luna i ka wēkiu
