Aloha 'Oe

Haʻaheo ka ua i naa pali
Ke nihi aʻela i ka nahele
E uhai ana paha i ka liko
Pua 'ahihi lehua o uka
 
[Hui:]
Aloha ʻoe, aloha ʻoe
E ke onaona noho i ka lipo
One fond embrace,
A hoʻi aʻe au
Until we meet again
 
ʻO ka haliʻa aloha i hiki mai
Ke hone aʻe nei i
Kuʻu manawa
ʻO ʻoe noo kaʻu ipo aloha
A loko e hana nei
 
[Hui]
 
Maopopo kuʻu ʻike i ka nani
Naa pua rose o Maunawili
I laila hiaʻia naa manu
Mikiʻala i ka nani o ka lipo.
 
[Hui]

English translation

Goodbye

The rain proudly lulls1 by the cliff
And quietly brushes through the forest2
It hones in at the core:3
The Lehua Flower of the vale.
 
[Chorus:]
Goodbye, goodbye
The sweet and gentle one living in the distance
One fond embrace
I leave
Until we meet again
 
Fond memories bring me back
And renew sweet ones
Of times past
Goodbye, my love
You are mine regardless
 
[Chorus]
 
I realize your beauty
The fragrant rose of Maunawili
Right over there, by the lovebirds
Drinking its nectar.
 
[Chorus]
