Kīhei - Kai Davis

Kaulana mai nei i kou inoa la
Ka nani aʻo Kīhei
Ka nani hoʻokipa me ke aloha la
I ka olu aʻo Kīhei

Eia au ke noho aku nei la
Ka nani aʻo Kīhei
Ma Kīhei aku nei nō wau la
ʻIke ʻia aʻo Waiakoa

Nānea i ka olu aʻo ia kaha la
Ka nani aʻo Kīhei
Ke kai nehe mai i ka ʻae one la
Ka nani aʻo Kīhei

Haʻina ka puana me ke aloha la
Ka nani aʻo Kīhei
Na kanaka a e lawaiʻa ana la
He iʻa ke loaʻa mai

Ha`ina ka puana me ke aloha la
Ka nani aʻo Kīhei
Kaʻena aʻe no wau o ka oi la
Ka nani aʻo Kīhei

Your name is famous
The beauty of Kīhei
The loving and beautiful hospitality
In the comfort of Kīhei

Here I reside
In the beauty of Kīhei
I was just in Kīhei
Waiakoa is seen

Relaxing in the comfort of that place
The beauty of Kīhei
The ocean that nestles on the sandy beach
The beauty of Kīhei

Let it be told with love
The beauty of Kīhei
The people fishing
A fish caught

Let it be told with love
The beauty of Kīhei
I boast of
The beauty of Kīhei
