Lyrics

Kuʻu ipo i ka heʻe puʻe one
Me ke kai nehe i ka ʻiliʻili
Nipo aku i laila ka manaʻo
Ua kiliʻopu māua i ka nahele

Refrain
Eiā la e māliu mai
Eiā ko aloha i ʻaneʻi
Hiki mai ana i ka pō nei
Ua kiliʻopu māua i ka nahele

Ka ʻowē nenehe a ke kai
Hone ana i ka piko waiʻolu
I laila au la ʻike
Kiliʻopu māua i ka nahele

Hiki ʻē mai ana ka makani
Ua hala ʻē aku e ka Puʻulena
Ua lose kou chance e ke hoa
Ua kiliʻopu māua i ka nahele

Translation – My sweetheart in the rippling hills of sand

My sweetheart in the rippling hills of sand
With the sea rustling the pebbles
There, the memory is impassioned
In the forest where we delighted

Refrain
Here, please listen
Here, your lover is here.
He came last night
We delighted in the forest

The gentle rustle of the sea
Softly in the pleasant center
Where I looked
We delighted in the forest

The wind came first
The Puʻulena wind passed by
You’ve lost your chance, oh friend
We delighted in the forest
