Pili Aloha (Bond of Love) - by Jack Haninaea
 
'Auhea wale 'oe Pili Aloha
Ku'u hoa i ka ua i ka ua loku
A he loku no wau i ka 'aina
Kilihune mai la i Namolokama
He kama ke aloha ka i hiki mai
Ho'ale'ale nei i ku'u pu'uwai
E kala no wau i hali'a ai
E puehu i ka hulu a'o ka'u manu
E puehu i ka hulu a'o ka'u manu
 
 
E 'imi aku 'oe i makua nou
Eia ho'i au i kapena hou
'O ka lei mokihana ka'u i aloha
He lei ki'i ho'i 'ia na ku'u poli
Me 'oe ke aloha a mau loa
He lei poina 'ole ia na'u
He lei ho'oheno Wai'ale'ale
Hiwahiwa Kaua'i i ka mokihana
Hiwahiwa Kaua'i i ka mokihana
 
 
Where are you, Pili Aloha?
My companion in the rain, the pouring rain
I'm really depressed for being rejected
As Namolokama lightly showers
The love that was mine was bound fast
Stirring here in my heart
Forgive me for such sweet recollections
Scattered are the feathers of my bird
Scattered are the feathers of my bird
 
 
You're searching for one to provide for you
For here am I, to be a new captain
The mokihana lei is mine to love
A lei that has been taken from my heart
With you is everlasting love
A lei I can never forget
A lei dearly loved by Wai'ale'ale
Precious is Kaua'i for the mokihana
Precious is Kaua'i for the mokihana
