Kamakana O Kalani

Kaulana ho’i no neia pua,
Famous is this flower,
He’ala kupaoa e,
With a permeating fragrance, 
He lei wehi ‘oe, pili i ka poli e,
You are a decorated lei close to the heart,
Kamakanaokalani e.
Kamakanaokalani.

He leo nahenahe ke lohe mai,
With a sweet sounding voice,
Himeni mai hoi oe,
Sing to me,
Me he manu noho ana i ka waonahele,
Like a bird in the forest,
Kani mai ka manu lele.
Singing in flight.

Mohala pua hone i ke aloha,
Honeysuckle blooms in love,
Inu ‘ia ka wai momona,
The sweet nectar is drunk,
Ai i na hua o na kumu like ‘ole,
The fruit of all trees are eaten,
Kolohe no ka manu.
Rascal indeed is this bird.

Puana ia mele no ku’u hoa,
This song is for my friend,
He’ala kupaoa e,
With a permeating fragrance,
He lei wehi ‘oe, pili i ka poli e,
You are a decorated lei close to the heart,
Kamakanaokalani e.
Kamakanaokalani.
