"ULUHUA WALE AU"

Onaona e ka uka o Ka`ala
Kuahiwi `au i ke kai
Ho`omâhie mai ana i ka nahele
I ka nani o Kûwaipô  

Uluhua uluhua wale au
Uluhua i ka wai a ka naulu
Ia wai nihi a`e i na pali
Ka lewa mauka o Mikilua

`Elua no pu`u i `oi a`e
A Hâlona e hi`ipoi nei
O ka uhi wai no me ka lalana
`Ekolu i ke onaona Iâpana

Uluhua uluhua wale au
Uluhua i ka wai a ka naulu
Ia wai nihi a`e i na pali
Ka lewa mauka o Mikilua

The fragrance from Ka`ala
Mountain washed by the sea
Permeates the woodland
And beautiful Kuwaipo
 
I am teased and tantalized
Vexed by the ever-present showers
That water that sweeps silently across the cliffs
And floats past the uplands of Mikilua
 
Two hearts are best
At cherished Halona
The heavy fog and the warming heat
Joined by the fragrance of the night-blooming Cestrum

I am teased and tantalized
Vexed by the ever-present showers
That water that sweeps silently across the cliffs
And floats past the uplands of Mikilua
