He Mana‘o Aloha

He manaʻo aloha kēia

No kuʻu lei

Nohea i ka maka

O ka malihini

 

I koʻu honi ʻana

I ke ʻala hoʻoheno

Aʻu i ʻike ai

Nou kuʻu puʻuwai

Ua paʻa pono au

 

*E hiki mai ana iaʻu kou hanu ʻaʻala

  Me he ipo ala i ke anu o ke kakahiaka

 

He lei wehi ʻoe

Naʻu e pūlama mau

I kuʻu puʻuwai

 

He manaʻo aloha kēia

No kuʻu lei

Na ka leo hone

I hoʻolale mai

He ʻiʻini nō mī nei

 

*repeat

 

He lei wehi ʻoe

Naʻu e pūlama mau

I kuʻu puʻuwai

 

He manaʻo aloha kēia

No kuʻu lei

Na ka leo hone

I hoʻolale mai

He ʻiʻini nō mī nei

He Mana'o Aloha translation:

 

This is a thought of love

for my lei

Pleasant of face

to the newcomer

 

As I took in

the entrancing fragrance

I knew my heart was yours,

and I was captivated

 

(chorus)

Coming to me is your sweetness

Life a lover in the cold of the morning

 

You are an adornment

For me to cherish

in my heart

 

A love thought

for my lei

It is the sweet voice that

encourages

the desire within me

Repeat last verse and chorus
