Hilo One - traditional

 

Aia i Hilo one ka `eha a ka mana`o
O sweet Emalia `o ko`u hoa ia
 
 
Nänä ke kolohe ki`ina i ka liko
`I`iwi pölena 'o ka manu o ka uka
 
 
Kohu `ole `oia ala i ka `i `ana mai
Eia no me a`u ka `iwi o Heneri
 
 
Ha`ina ka puana aia i Hilo one
O sweet Emalia `o ko`u aloha ia

 

There at Hilo-one is the haunt of my thoughts
Sweet Emalia is the one who is my companion
 
 
Hers is the naughty way of getting the tender bud
`I`iwi pölena is the bird of the upland
 
 
No one compares with the way she implies
Here with me is the profound love of Henry
 
 
The story is told for there at Hilo-one
Sweet Emalia, she is my love
