Ke Kali Nei Au  (1926) 
by Charles E. King

Eia au ke kali nei
Aia la i hea kuʻu aloha

Eia au ke huli nei
A loaʻa ʻoe e ka ipo
Maha ka ʻiʻini a ka puʻuwai

Ua sila paʻa ʻia me ʻoe
Ko aloha makamae e ipo
Kaʻu ia e lei aʻe nei la

Nou no ka ʻiʻini (nou ka ʻiʻini)
A nou wale no (wale no)
A o ko aloha kaʻu e hiʻipoi mau

Naʻu ʻoe (naʻu ʻoe)
E lei (e lei)
Naʻu ʻoe e lei

A he haliʻa kai hiki mai
No kuʻu lei onaona
Pūlupe i ka ua

ʻAuhea ʻoe ka ʻiʻini a loko
Na loko aʻe ka manaʻo
Huʻe lani ana i kuʻu kino

Kuʻu pua kuʻu lei onaona
Aʻu i kui a lawa ia nei
Me ke ala pua pikake

A o ʻoe kuʻu pua (O ʻoe kuʻu pua)
Kuʻu pua lei lehua (lehua)

Aʻu e liʻa mau nei hoʻopaʻa
Ia iho ke aloha

He lei (he lei)
ʻOe naʻu (ʻoe naʻu)
He lei ʻoe naʻu
