Delicious
A passion fruit flavor
Puckers you up delicious
A craving satiated by its richness when swallowed

Delicious
An aʻaʻma crab relish taste
The juices are slurped
When sopped up, salty and delicious
 
Delicious
A flavor of sea urchin meat
Deliciousness to be gulped down
The throat left with a slippery taste when swallowed
 
Delicious
A taste of limu lipeʻe
Slippery, dark brown-red, delicious
A fine flavor
 
Tell the refrain, delicious
Delicious, a passion fruit flavor,
The favorite delicacies of the elders
