Lyrics

Kapulu, pulu kane, (repeat twice) ku ka nalua

That careless messy man, a very messy man.
No doubt that every one can plainly see, indeed!

  1. Ooh, I love this song. My students love the one Hawaiian song I have taught them and would be so happy to expand their Hawaiian repertoire. Now to figure out how to actually implement puili sticks in my classroom….

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hi Beth,

    Thanks for sharing! Do you have a recording of the background track of Kapulu Kane that you could share with me? RRGrove@gmail.com Thank you!

    • Sorry, Rachel. I don’t have a background track of this song. When the kids have performed the song, we have done it acapella.
