Ka ʻAnoʻi (Aia i Alaka`i) - Kamealoha/ Kamehaokalani 

Aia i Alakaʻi ka ʻanoʻi
Nā pua keu a ke aloha

Ke aloha ka i hiki mau loa
Noʻu a no ia la kekahi

ʻO ia la ka pua i poni ʻia
I kukuni paʻa ʻia ka ʻiʻini

He ʻiʻini kau no ka manaʻo
ʻO hāliʻa hana mau i ke kino

Kuʻu kino ua lono i ka leo
I ke kani a nā manu o uka

Aneane hiki mai ʻo ʻUila
Ke āiwaiwa o luna

Nānā e kaomi na māno
Hākukoʻi ka wai i nā pali

Haʻina ʻia mai ka puana
Nā pua keu a ke aloha
There at Alakaʻi is the desireable one
The flowers overjoyed with love

Love is forever coming
Just mine and sometimes, for her

She's the blossom blessed
Desire is branded permanently

Wanting takes over my thoughts
Good memories endlessly run through my being

My person is attentive to the voices
That are sounded by the birds of the upland

ʻUila soon will be coming
The amazing one of the heights

It was she who dammed up the springs and wells
Water just overflowed over the cliffs

The story is told
About the flowers overjoyed with love

He Mele Inoa no ka Moiwahine Kapiolani - Haku Ia E Kamehaokalani
1. Aia i Alakai ka anoi,
Na pua keu a ke aloha,
He aloha ka-ii-mau loa,
A noʻu, no ia la kekahi.

Chorus:
O ia la ka pua i poni ia,
I kukuni paa ia ka iini,
He iini kau na ka manao,
No halia hana mau i ke kino.

2. Kuu kino kai lono i ka leo,
I ke kani a ka manu o uka,
Ulu mai ka manao a nui,
Hoonua i ka lau laau.

Chorus:
Au mai nei holu i ka wai,
Ma ke kihi hema o ka aina,
Aneane hoolale na manu,
Na kapuai kani o Ulili.

3. Ke nu mai nei ka makani,
Ke owe mai nei ka moana,
Ane hiki mai paha o Uwila,
Ke aiwaiwa o luna.

Chorus:
Nana i kaomi na mano,
Hakukoi ka wai i na pali,
Puluelo ka liko o ka lehua,
Ua olu i ka ua ke hau.
