TRANSLATION

 

It's beauty is greatly desired 

When the midst of the rain come

It's sprinkles the mountain     (the beauty of kaneohe)

 

The moonlight glistens for you

So perfect in the calm

You are filled with wonderus beauty(the beauty of kaneohe)

 

In the view of the mountain tops

There is a breath so soft

You are beautiful to see

 

the beauty of kaneohe, my home

SWEET HEART MINE

Lei ʻia e ka lei hala

Ho'ohāli'a mau a mau,

He ho'omanaʻo ʻiʻo no

E poina ʻole kaʻu lāhui e.

 

Hāpai ʻia au... e ka makani

I nā pua honi ʻole 'ia,

Kupaianaha kona uʻi

Pulupē ʻia i ke kai.

 

"Mahalo no nā mea i aʻo ʻia

Pūlama ʻia i ka puʻuwai,

Mai Ke ao mamua,

me ke ao e hiki mai nei. "

(Modulate)

back to first verse

(chorus)

 

TRANSLATION

 

Ill wear this lei hala,

to remind me of where I've been,

to remind me of who i am,

to never forget my culture

 

The winds will carry me,

to flowers I've never smelt,

fascinated by its beauty,

dampened by the ocean

 

(c)

i will never say goodbye

to what lies behind me,

but welcome what lies ahead

 

Repeat first verse.
