Kihene  (1906) 
by Mekia Kealakaʻi

Nowelo aka uliʻiliʻi
Ai ono a na kupuna
He pua na ke ao naulu
Honi au a hoʻo maʻu

Oia no a me au
Kai ike ia mea huna
O mau a pu no i laila
Puni ia ʻāina kau la na

Hui:
Ona ona i kamahake ike
Kaomi ana i nei puʻuwai
Kihene a pa a ke aloha
I hoa pili nou a mau

I me hana noau i ka leo
Polina heo ke koʻolau
Hoʻolale maianane pili
Me kuʻu hoa i keaa

Ua kaana puia me kealoha
Ua uo ia a paʻa
O wau no a me kuʻu ipo
Kai honi ikea la ona ona
