Behold The Beauty Of Hopoe
The Woman Swaying, Dancing At The Sea Of Nanahuki

My Beloved
Cherished Near My Heart
My Warm Heart
Warm With Love

Gliding Along The Seashore
At The Surging Seas Of Ha‘Ena

The Woman Moves With Such Elegance
She Is There At Puna In The Calm

Cherished The Chill Of Waiko‘Olihilihi
The Waters Pouring Forth From The Lehua Blossoms

Aloha Week Hula

Composed by: Jack Pitman

Little hula flirts in hula skirts
Winking at the boys in aloha shirts
That’s the way they do
The Aloha Week Hula

Around the island mile by mile
Take a detour that’s Hawaiian style
That’s the way they do
The Aloha Week Hula

Hui:
For a brand new step you can try and match
Tūtū walking in the taro patch
Clap your hands, the music is grand
Do an ‘ami ‘ami for the boys in the band

Beat that drum, rum di dum
Wiggle in the middle it’s a lot of fun
When you learn to do
The Aloha Week Hula

Aia O Waipio

Composed by: Kekoa Wong
Melody and Music by: Sean Na‘auao

O Mamala ka maka i ka mamao
Ke kai ke ehuehu
O ka ulu laau e laka ka pua
Ke kinohinohi i ka mamo

Hui:
Aia o Waipio i ka ohu
He wehi e kau mai i luna
E mau ke kehau i ke kupu

O Halemano i uka o ke ko
E ohohia i ke kileo o ke kilihune
A he kahe ka wai e ola ai
He kumu koa mui i ka manu

Hui:
Aia o Waipio i ka ohu
He wehi e kau mai i luna
E mau ke kehau i ke kupu

In the distance, Mamala is seen
Where the wave crest sprays
Within the groves, the flower comes forth
The wreath of the mamo

Chorus:
There’s Waipio of the dew laden mist
That adorns, above
The dew that moistens the kupu fern

Halemano, of the sweet sugarcane
Which pleases the palate of the misty rain
As the water flows, life becomes
Where the koa tree is laden with birds

Chorus:
There’s Waipio of the dew laden mist
That adorns, above
The dew that moistens the kupu fern

PĀnini Pua Kea

Composed by: John K. Almeida

‘Auhea iho nei o Lei aloha
Ku‘u hoa i ka nani a‘o nā pua
Eia mai au ‘o suipa lilo
Ka ipo i ke aka pua aniani
He aniani wale ‘o hāli‘a loko
Nowelo mao ‘ole i ka pu‘uwai

Nā wai nō ‘oe e a pakele aku
I ka wai o ka pänini pua kea

Ha‘ina ‘ia mai ana ka puana
Ku‘u ipo i ka nani a‘o nā pua

Where has Leialoha gone?
My companion amid the beautiful flowers

Here am I, “Sweep-all-to-myself”
Your sweetheart in the shadow of fair flowers
Well known is my heart’s turmoil
As love stirs ceaselessly in my heart
How can you escape its influence
After tasting the honey of the white flowered cactus
This is the end of my song
Of my sweetheart among the beautiful flowers

I Fell In Love With Honolulu

Composed by: Donald Neil McKay

I fell in love with Honolulu
When I saw a girl with flowers in her hair
When she gave me her aloha smile
I was glad that I could stay awhile

I fell in love with Honolulu
When we walked together on Waikiki sand
Watched the flowing sunset hand in hand
Felt the tradewinds caress

Bridge:
And though I went away
My heart stayed on
Will she be waiting for?
Will she be gone

I’m going back to Honolulu
To the island girl with flowers in her hair
If she’s waiting I will hold her close and never stray
From Honolulu, in Hawai‘i nei

Hola ‘E Pae

Traditional

E pupue iho au mawaho la
Ma loko mai ‘oe o ka lumi la
O ke kani o ka hola e pae la
‘Ike pono ‘ia ka pae ‘ōpua
Ke lawe ‘ia ala ke aloha la
E ka ‘aeko hulu melemele la
Ke lawe ‘ia ala e ka manu la
E ka nūnū maka onaona

‘A‘ole no au e hopo ana la
I ka ʻumi haneli kaukani la
O ka emepela Napoliona la
Ka makua o ka na‘i aupuni

Ha‘ina ‘ia mai ka puana la
Ma loko mai ‘oe o ka lumi la
O ke kani o ka hola ‘e pae la
‘Ike pono ‘ia ka pae ‘ōpua
I crouch inside
You‘re inside the room
At the strike of the hour of five
Clearly seen are the cloud banks

Brought there is love
By the yellow feathered eagle
Found there is the bird
The sweet-eyed dove

It‘s not for me to worry about
The ten hundred thousand
The emperor Napoleon
Is the father of the conqueror of the kingdom

The story is told of
You inside the room
At the strike of the hour of five
Clearly seen are the cloud banks

Kipu Kai

Composed by Mary Kawena Pukui
Melody and Music by: Maddy K. Lam

No Kipu Kai ke aloha
Home i ka pili kahakai
Ilaila au i ike ai
I ka nui loko maika‘i

Nanea i ka ho‘olohe
I ka halulu mai o ke kai
Ka nalu nui e holu ana
I ka lae a o Kuāhonu

Pau‘ole ko‘u ho‘ohihi
I ka nani a o Ha’upu
Mauna ki‘eki‘e iluna
Hanohano ke ‘ike aku

Makemake wale ka ikena
Ina manu pikake nani
E kaka‘i e ha‘aheo ana
I ka malu a o ke kiawe

Puana ia me ke aloha
No ka nani a o Ha’upu
Me Keaka loko maika‘i
Ka haku a o Kipu-Kai

For Kipu Kai is my affection
Where there is a home by the sea
It was there that I found
Such unbounded hospitality

I enjoy listening
To the roar of the sea
As the large waves come rolling in
To Kuāhonu point

Endless is my admiration
For the beauty of Ha‘upu
A hill so high
Majestic to my sight

It is a delight to see
The pretty peacocks
Strutting by together
In the shade of the kiawe

Thus ends my song with affection
For the beauty of Ha‘upu
And for Jack, the kind-hearted
The owner of KipūKai

Aloha ‘Ia ‘O Waianae

Composed by Abigail Pilila‘au and Rachael Kaleiwahea

Aloha ‘ia ‘o Wai‘anae
He malu i ka ulu niu
Ulu niu kaulana ‘o Pōka‘ī

Home poina ‘ole

Love for Wai‘anae
The peaceful shady
Famous coconut grove of Pōka‘ī Bay
I see the beauty

Majestic Ka‘ala
The glorious mountain
Where the small leaf maile grows in profusion
With its penetrating fragrance

The wind named Kaiāulu
Blows gently
Brings the fragrance of ginger
The sweet smelling flower

Tell the refrain
Of my home at Wai‘anae
The home that we love
The unforgettable home

Līlialanaikawaiola

O Aku Oia Kona Mau Na Lihilihi A Ke Aloha

O Ka Ikaika, A O Ka Hanohano, Kona Pokaikai Ana
O Lilialanaikawaiola, I Kai Ka Hemolele O Kou Inoa

She opens her petals of love,
A scent in the air,
Reaches out her love to all,
Many women are beautiful
But you surpass them all,
Strength and dignity are her blessings
O Lilialanaikawaiola, how majestic is your name.

Ahe Lau Makani

Traditional

He ‘ala nei e māpu mai nei
Nā ka makani lau aheahe
I lawe mai i ku‘u nui kino
Ho‘opumehana i ku‘u poli

Hui:
E ke hoa o ke

He ‘ala nei e moani mai nei
Na ka ua noe Līlīlehua,

He ‘ala nei e aheahe mai nei
Na ka leo hone a nā manu
I lawe mai a loa‘a au

There is a breath so gently breathing
So soft, so sweet, by sighing breezes
That as it touches my whole being
It warms me in my heart

Chorus:
We, fair one, together, shall enjoy such moments
While murmuring wind sweeps over my fatherland

There is a breath so soft and balmy
Brought by sweet zephyrs, Līlīlehua
And while wafted to my bosom
It warms me with love

There is a fragrance that saturates
A cool, soft breeze
Brought it to cling to me
Warming me with feelings

There is a fragrance wafted here
The sweet call of birds
Brought it to find me
Being warmed by your voice
