  • About the Song
  • Lyrics

    E Kānehoalani ē,
    E hō mai i ko mālamalama
    I ao maila ʻo Wailuku
    I ka malu ʻōhū o Kāne

    Hui:
    Eō, e ka hū, e hui like mai
    A pualu i ka pono o nā wai
    E hālana aʻe ka manaʻo
    I ke au o kēia mua aku

    E ka makani Hoʻolua,
    Hoʻolale i ke Kiliʻoʻopu
    ʻO ka ua noenoe o nā pali
    Hāʻale i ka wai o Waiheʻe

    E nā wailele hune o Waiehu,
    Wai hiwahiwa i ke alo pali,
    Wai aukahi, wai lāhui
    Kahe i ka poli o Poliʻala

    E nā pōkiʻi inu wai ʻawaʻawa
    E ka poʻe i aloha i ka ʻāina,
    Ua hiki Waikapū aʻi Māʻalaea
    Ua ea, a he māealani
