Hanu i ke ʻala ou e ka pīkake

Haliʻa ka manaʻo i ka hui mua

Hana lauwiliwili me ka liʻa loko

He ʻiʻini koʻu e pili me ʻoe

 

 *Wrap your arms around my waist

   Come honihoni me

   Oh my goodness ku‘u pu‘uwai

   Now that you are in my arms

   E ʻula la e hō

   Darling pili mau me ‘oe

 

Helele‘i mai ka ‘ohu noe i ka ‘ili

Hāli‘ali‘a i ka ulu aloha

Pa‘a pono ‘ia lā i ku‘u manawa

He ‘i‘ini ko‘u e pili me ‘oe

 

 *hui

 

‘A‘ole ka mana‘o e poina wale

Ka popohe o ka pīkake anuhea

‘Ae nō ho‘i ua poina ‘ole

Maopopo ia‘u pili mau me ‘oe

 

 *hui
