Kilakila o Maui i ka roselani
O ka oi no ia e kaulana nei

O ka wehi roselani, lei onaona
He maʻu i ka ihu o ka malihini

I ke kai kāua aʻo Kahului
Lawaiʻa hukikolo, hukihuki mālie

Haʻina ka puana o ka roselani
Haʻaheo o Maui no e ka oi

 

Majestic Maui, whose flower is the rose
Is well known for its excellence
 
Its favorite adornment is the rose, lovely in a lei
Giving cool fragrance that charms the visitor
 
Let us go to the sea of Kahului
The draw nets are pulled in slowly in rhythm
 
This is the end of my song of the rose
The pride of Maui, the best of the islands
