He Aloha Mele - by Iva Kinimaka

He aloha mele, pretty hoku
Sending down a special little twinkle
For your brown eyes
Your pretty lovely brown eyes
In the still of the night
All the stars are shining bright
For your brown eyes

He aloha mele, e lohe i kamakani
Gentle breeze whispering haunting melodies
To you softly
Whisper to you softly
Hear the winds through the trees
Singing sweet harmony
To you softly

Hui:
With the grace of her hands
She can tell you that a star
Only glitters at the setting of the sunshine
With the grace of her hands
She can tell you that the wind
Only blows when no mountain side
Is there to touch her

Now there's the sun and the moon
Talking stories telling tales
About a new day
It's gonna be a nice day
Now the moon is shining bright
And the sun will rise again
To start a new day

He aloha mele
