Nani Ko`olau

Lyrics:

Nani Ko`olau a he pö anu

Ka `iniki welawela o ka Makasila

I laila käua i walea ai

Me ka wai o ka `ülala e hö

A hiki käua i Nu`uanu

A inu i ka wai o Silosila

I laila käua i hi`olani ai

Me ka wai o ka pali Ko`olau

I laila aku wau i ka pö nei

Ua pa`a ko puka i ka laka `ia

Wehe aku au he `ole e ka hemo

Me ka wai o ka `ülala e hö

`Auhea wale ana `oe

E ku`u lei mokihana

A u`i kui ä lawa

I lei ho`ohiehie

Ua la`i ka nohona iho

Me ku`u ever sweet

Hiki e mai ana ka makani

Pono `ole kahi mana`o

Ha`ina Ko`olau a he pö anu

Ka `iniki welawela ka maka sila

Käua pü nö lä i laila

Me ke wai o ka ulala e hou

Ha`ina `ia mai ana ka puana

Ku`u hoa o ka nani o ke Ko`olau

Me `oe ho`i au ho`oipo ai

Me ka wai o ka `ülala e hö
 

Translation:

The beautiful Ko`olaus and a cold night
I feel the sting of the Makasila wind 
We passed away the time 
With the waters of song|

We came to Nu'uanu 
And drank the waters of Silosila 
There we rested pleasantly 
Beside the waters from the Ko`olau cliffs 

I was there last night
Your door was locked 
I could not open it 
With the waters of song

Where are you
My mokihana wreath 
I weave a beautiful lei 
A lei so beautiful

Dwelling there so peacefully
With my sweetie
The winds came and whispered 
This is my only desire

Tell of the cold night in the Ko`olau 
And the sting of the Makasila wind 
We were there at the pool 
With the waters of song

Tell the refrain 
My friend in the beauty of the Ko'olau 
I was with you in sweet love 
With the waters of song
