  • Lyrics

    He ola hou ko ka lāhui
    Pa‘a pono i ke a‘o kūpuna
    Ua kupu hou a‘e ka ‘ohana
    Na ka hana lokomaika‘i āu

    Hui:
    E mau ana ka inoa hanohano
    I nā pua lei mamo ha‘aheo
    Puana he lei kamaha‘o
    Kamalei-a-Paoa, e ō mai!

    Holo wiwo‘ole i nā kai loa
    Hōkūle‘a me Hawai‘iloa
    “He moku, he kanaka ‘o Hawai‘i
    A he kama ho‘oheno na Tahiti”

    He inoa no Myron Pinky Thompson
