Love for Kaua`i and the famous chief Kaumuali`i
I'm in search of my fragrant lei
 
 
Surrounded by this beloved land
I am refreshed here at Koloa
 
 
Behold the beauty of Kaua`i, so close to my heart
Long life from Ni`ihau to great Hawai`i
 
 
There is a place named Miloli`i
Here the people of Kaua`i are so friendly
 
 
Let the story be told
Love for this famous island, the name is Kaua`i
