Wehiwehi `Oe (You Are So Decorative) - by Mekia Kealakai & Sylvester Kalama

 
E ku`u pua mae `ole
A`u i kui ai a lawa
I lei ho`ohiehie
No ke ano ahiahi
 
 
 
Hui:
Wehiwehi `oe ku`u ipo
He `i`ini ke ko`i`i waiho ia liko
`O loko hana nui i ka pu`uwai
Ko leo nahenahe e maliu mai
 
 
 
Ho`ohihi ka mana`o a`e `ike
I ka lau `ahihi o ia uka
I puia i ke `al` onaona
Me ka ua hali'i ka nahele
O flower of mine that never fades
That I wear as a lei bound strongly
You are so elegant
In the evening
 
 
 
Chorus:
You are so decorative my sweetheart
And you evoke within desire so persistent
That it is impossible for the heart
Not to heed your soft voice
 
 
 
One wants to know and love
The creeping vines of the uplands
Drenched with fragrance and perfume
And the rain spread through the forest
