Maile Swing - by John K. Almeida

 
Sweet and lovely
Ke onaona o ka maile
Ho`oipo ke `ala ho`oheno
Sure i ka pili poli
 
Nanea e walea
E luana i käua i laila
Mikioi ke ki`ina hei kou     
Pu`uwai kapalili
 
Hui:
Nani ua ko ka i`ini
A i hoapili mau `oe no`u
Ko`i`i ke aloha e nowelo, e `uleu
He hene wai'olu a loko, hey hey
 
Ha`ina ka puana
Ke onaona o ka maile
`Ano`ai ka pilina
E lei a`e au me ku`u lei
Sweet and lovely
Is the maile's fragrance
A delightful odor
That clings to the bosom
 
May we linger happily
You and I
With the sweetness that captivates
Your fluttering heart
 
Chorus:
Surely I have won
You for my own
Love endures with us, stirring, animating
A soothing sensation within, hey hey
 
This ends my song
Of the maile's fragrance
Which breathes from
The leis of my love and me
