Lyrics

1. No ka lei ho’ohie
Na wai o pua
He makana na kâua
Kû kalahale

2. Ai no ia na kamaka
O nâ malihini
No na `âina
Ho`o pua kea ili

3. Nohea ke ala
Nâ pua like `ole
I lawe ia mai la
Pili kâua po

4. Ua mana ko leo
Malu i ke `ala
Kulana holomua
No Hawai`i

5. Ha`ina e ka wehi
I lohe ia
Ka lei ho`ohie
`Ae ou mai

Translation – The Delightful Lei

1. Delightful lei for you
For whom is this flower
A gift for you and me
Famous wind and rain of Honolulu

2. And it is the desire
Of the visitors
For these islands
To see fair blossoms upon landing

3. Beautiful is the smell
Various flowers
That was brought
Close to you and me last night

4. The spirit of your voice
Shaded in the fragrance
Pulls me closer
To Hawai`i

5. The precious refrain
That was heard
The delightful lei
For me
