The fragrance of the pikake is wafted
By a gentle blowing of the wind
I love the flower that constantly attracts
 
 
I pluck this flower of my attraction
It will never be forgotten, second to none
I love the flower that constantly attracts
 
 
Elegant and close to my heart
A lei to wear and cherish
I love the flower that constantly attracts
 
 
An echo of my thoughts
A pikake lei is my love
I love the flower that constantly attracts
 
 
Echoing again
A pikake lei is my love
I love the flower that constantly attracts
