Waipi'o Paka'alana

 
Aia i Waipi'o Paka'alana
Paepae kapu 'ia o Liloa
 
 
 
He aloha ka wahine pi'i i ka pali
Pu'ili ana i ka hua 'ulei
 
 
 
I ka 'ai mo'a i ka lau la'au
Ho'ola au mai o ka welowelo
 
 
 
Ua pee'e pa Kaiaulu o Waimea
Ua ola i ku'u kai Keolo'ewa e
 
Kahea: He Inoa No Kamehameha Nui
There is Waipi'o and the temple Paka'alana
Foundation of tHe shrine of King Liloa
 
 
 
Love to the woman climbing the cliff
Gathering 'ulei berries
 
 
 
Eating sun-dried forest leaves
Eating ceaselessly of the swaying fruit
 
 
 
Hidden from the striking Kaiaulu of Waimea
Keolo'ewa overcomes my passion for living
 
The name of Kamehameha the Great
