Lei Lihilihi Lehua - Lyrics and Translation

My eyes are allured by the beauty of this lei

Of beautiful, exquisted buds of lehua

My affection is for the lei lihilihi lehua

 

The apane trees are laden with blossoms in the Lilinoe rain

Kept moist and fresh in the damp cold

(My) affection is for this blossom close to my heart

 

Unfolded blossoms are strug

With red and yellow flowers

You are my blossom, a lei always worn

 

Told are my thoughts with affection

For this beautiful, royal flower lei

My affection is for the lei lihilihi lehua

Onaona ku'u maka i ka beauty o ia lei

Pua nani auli'i o ka lehua e

Aloha i ku'u lei lihilihi lehua

 

Lehua na apane i ka ua Lilinoe

Alihua mai nei i ke anu ko'eko'e

Aloha i ka pua pili i kapu'uwai

 

Kui 'ia na pua i mohala a'e nei

Me ka pua 'ula ame ka pua mele e

He pua 'oe na'u e lei mau ai

 

Puana ka mana'o me ke aloha e

No ka pua lei ali;i lehua nani e

Aloha i ku'u lei lihilihi lehua
