Malolo (Flying Fish) - words by Mary P. Robins music by John Noble

 
Kaulana ka inoa a o Malolo
Mahimahi oe o ke kai o Maleka
 
 
Ahe nani hiehie kou o neke
Meke anianiku e kilohi nei
 
 
Uluwehiwehi ke kaona i ka'u ike
Au waa Malolo a Kamehameha
 
 
Ho`okomo ike awa ao Mamala
Me ke kapa ahuula kau po`ohiwi
 
 
Lei ana ika pua ka liko lehua
O wili ia me maile lauli`i
 
 
Eo e Malolo i kou inoa
Ke kuini o ka moana Pakipika
Famous is the name of the Malolo
You're a dolphin in the sea of America
 
 
How delightful is your deck
The sea is like a mirror one can gaze into
 
 
I see the town so verdant and beautiful
The Malolo sails the route of Kamehameha's canoes
 
 
Entering Mamala channel
With red feather cloaks worn on the shoulders
 
 
Wearing leis of lehua buds
Entwined with small leafed maile
 
 
We call your name Malolo, you answer
Queen of the Pacific Ocean
