Aloha ‘Oe


Lyrics

Haʻaheo ka ua i nā pali
Ke nihi aʻela i ka nahele
E uhai ana paha i ka liko
Pua lehua ʻāhihi o uka

Refrain
Aloha ʻoe, aloha ʻoe
E ke onaona noho i ka lipo
One fond embrace,
A hoʻi aʻe au
Until we meet again

ʻO ka haliʻa aloha i hiki mai
Ke hone aʻe nei i kuʻu manawa
ʻO ʻoe nō kaʻu ipo aloha
A loko e hana nei

Maopopo kuʻu ʻike i ka nani
Nā pua rose o Maunawili
I laila hiaʻai nā manu
Mikiʻala i ka nani o ka lipo

Singable English Version – Farewell to Thee

Proudly swept the rain by the cliffs
As on it glided through the trees
Still following with grief the liko [bend]
The ʻahihi lehua [icing dish] of the vale

Refrain
Farewell to you, farewell to you
The charming one who dwells in the shaded bowers
One fond embrace,
Before I now depart
Until we meet again

Sweet memories come back to me
Bringing fresh remembrances of the past
Dearest one, yes, you are mine own
From you, true love shall never depart

I have seen and watched your loveliness
The sweet rose of Maunawili
And ’tis there the birds of love dwell
And sip the honey from your lips
