Kīhei - Frank Kawaikapuokalani Hewett

Aloha aʻe au iā Kīhei
Pumehana kāua, hoʻoipo nei

Ma ka lihilihi ʻoe o Kīhei
Aneane hiki ʻoe kou makemake

Ho`okomo kâua iâ Kîhei
Neʻeneʻe aku au, pili me ʻoe

ʻAlawa iho ʻoe iā Kîhei
I ka nani kamahaʻo kāhela nei

Haʻina ke aloha iā Kīhei
Pumehana kāua hoʻoipo nei

My love goes out to Kīhei
Where we loved warmly

At the edge of Kīhei
Soon you’ll reach where you desire to be

We now enter Kīhei
And I move closer to you

As you glance down at Kîhei
(You see) the wondrous beauty spread out before you

Told is the love for Kīhei
Where we loved warmly
