Huelo - Traditional

 
Kahiko no e ka nani
Uluwehi ke `ike aku
Ho`ohihi kahi mana`o
I ka wai hu`i wai o ka ona
 
 
 
Hui:
E ho`i no i ka ua
I ka uka `iu`iu o Huelo
I laila no e pili ai
Me ka `o`o hulu laha `ole
 
 
 
Ke noe mai a ka ua
Kilihune mai la i uka
E ho`opulu ana i ka lihi
Lau lipo o ka `awapuhi
Beautiful from days of old
See the lushness
My mind is enraptured
By the cold, intoxicating water
 
 
 
Chorus:
Let us wander off
To the high hills of Huelo
There we can come together
Like the feathers of the `O`o bird
 
 
 
When mist and rain commences
It sprinkles the mountains
Drenching the edges of
The leaves of the yellow ginger
