Hu`ehu`e - Rose Simerson

Keiki mai au no Huʻehuʻe ʻeā ʻeā
Kîpuka ʻili aʻo kani ka uwepa

Ka waiho laulā kaʻu aloha ʻeā ʻeā
Kuʻu lio puakea haʻa i ke kula

Maikaʻi Huʻehuʻe e waiho nei ʻeā ʻeā
Hoʻokahi no hewa he ulua `ole

Ua hoʻi ka ulua i Kahaluʻu ʻeā ʻeā
I ke ani peahi lau o ka niu

A komo i ka malu lau kukui ʻeā ʻeā
Hoʻolaʻi nā iwa oia uka

Haʻinaʻ`ia mai ana ka puana ʻeā ʻeā
Kipuka ili aʻo kani ka uwepa

From childhood at Hu`ehu`e
I learned to throw a lasso and crack the whip

The broad open plains I love
My white horse goes prancing in the high pasture land

Hu`ehu`e is a fine place, lying there below
Too bad there‘s not even one fish (cowboy)

The cowboys went to Kahulu`u town
Where the palm leaves beckon

In the kukui leaf shade
The birds of the upland are made still

The story is told
Of learning to throw a lasso and crack the whip
