Lepe 'Ula'ula

Lepe 'ula'ula lepe o ka moa
Ke hua kûlina 'ai a ka pelehu

Keiki mai au no Kawaihae
No ke kipuka 'ili lawe a lilo

'Elua wale iho ho'i mâua
Ka hau hâli'i a'o Waimea

I laila mâua kukuni e ka hao
Kokope e ka 'i'o kupu kuku'i e ka papa niho

Mai nô 'oe a ho'opoina
I ka lawe ha'aheo ake kipuka 'ili

Ha'ina 'ia mai ana ka puana
Lepe 'ula'ula lepe o ka moa|

The red comb of the rooster
The corn eating turkey

I am a lad from Kawaihae
With a winning lasso

Just the two of us
Covered by the dew of Waimea

There, we two used the branding iron
Scraped the flesh from the gums

Never forget
The lasso and the proud catch

Tell the refrain
The red comb of the rooster
