Kamehameha Waltz  (1917) 
by Charles E. King

Kū kilakila ʻo Kamehameha
Kuʻu home hoʻonaʻauao
I ka laʻi o Kaiwiʻula
Uluwehi i ka lau kiawe
A he home naʻu i aloha
A e haʻaheo mau loa ai
E ola mau ʻo Kamehameha

Nou e Pauahi lani nui
Ka manaʻo e hoʻoho hauʻoli nei
Ola ia ʻoe nā kini pua
O Hawaiʻi kulaiwi
Na hana lua ʻole a ka puʻuwai
O ke aliʻi aloha
Kau kou inoa i ka wēkiu
A nou kuʻu mele nei
