Ka Naʻi Aupuni

by William Kahino

 

E Hawaiʻi nui kuauli

E nā hono aʻo Piʻilani

Oʻahu o Kākuhihewa

Kauaʻi o Manōkalanipō

Kauaʻi o Manōkalanipō

 

 *E naʻi wale nō ʻoukou

   I kuʻu pono ʻaʻole pau

   I ke kumu pono o Hawaiʻi

   E mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono

   E mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono

 

I hoʻokahi kahi ka manaʻo

I hoʻokahi kahi puʻuwai

I hoʻokahi kahi ke aloha

E mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono

E mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono

 

 *hui

 

<解説>

三番まであるが二番まで歌うのが一般的のようだ。二番の“E mau”を“I mau”と歌うシンガーもいる。チンキー・マーホエの音源がそう。
