Imagine (Ina)

by Raiatea & Keola Beamer

available on iTunes

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky

Imagine all the people
Living for today (ah ah ah)

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too

Imagine all the people
Living life in peace 

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

The chant section of the song is done by the late Charles Kaupu from Maui. The family comes from Pukoʻo on Manaʻe side on Molokai. The grandfather taught in Halawa School. Charles attended Halawa School with Uncle Pilipo. (from Kumu Lawrence Aki)

“[..] [The song] includes an interlude with a chant by Kaupu in which he speaks of love and aloha for our islands, the mountains, and the seas. He admonishes us: “Arise and stand together, all children of the land.” source: http://www.keawalai.org/sermons/12-24-12.html

Time: 2:15”-3:03”

E kū, e kū paʻa ʻālike kākou nā tupuna nā mātua nā ʻōpio nā Pulapula o ʻāina
Ea ea
E ala i nā tuahiwi o nā tai e ulu ē
