Lānaʻi - Alice Johnson
 

Hanohano Lānaʻi i ke kaunaʻoa
Kohu kapa ʻahuʻula kau poʻohiwi
 
ʻŌiwi nani ʻoe kû kilakila
Kehakeha i ka maka ke ʻike aku
 
ʻAlawa iho ʻoe i kona nani
Honi aku i ke ʻala o ka palai
 
Ha`ina Lâna`i ana ka puana
Kohu kapa ʻahuʻula kau poʻohiwi
 
Honored is Lānaʻi by the kauna'oa
Like a feather cape on its shoulder

You are beautful
 
Standing proudly for eyes to behold
 
As you glance at her beauty
The scent of palai is wafted
 
Tell the refrain of Lānaʻi
Like a feather cape on its shoulders
