Nani Wai'ale'ale - by Dan Pokipala, Sr.

 
Kaulana wale 'oe Kaua'i
Kuahiwi nani Wai'ale'ale
Me na kini ea
Manokalanipo
 
 
He moani a'e nei ke 'ala
O ka mokihana me ka laua'e
Me na pua ea
Like 'ole o ka 'aina
 
 
'U'ina i nakolo i na pali
I ka wai a'o Namolokama
Me na limu ea
He pakika o Manu'akepa
 
 
Ha'ina 'ia mai ka puana
Kuahiwi nani Waialeale
Me na kini ea
Mano kalani po
Famous you are, Kaua'i
For beautiful Mount Wai'ale'ale
And the king
Manokalanipo
 
 
The breeze carries fragrance
Of mokihana and sweet fern
And all the different flowers
Of the land
 
 
The roar thunders on the cliffs
At the falls of Namolokama
And the moss
>Is slippery at Manu'akepa
 
 
The story is told
Of beautiful Mount Wai'ale'ale
And the king
Manokalanipo
