Mai Nuha Mai ʻOe (Don't Sulk) - by Charles E. King


Ahe aha hoi nei pilikia nui, e kuʻu lei

ʻAe hōʻike mai hoi ʻoe, e kuʻu lei

Mai no ʻoe huna i aʻu e kuʻu lei


Wiki mai ʻoe hoʻolohilohi nei e ke aloha e



Mai aʻo ʻoe i ka mili apa e kuʻu lei

Ahe pilikia hoi ko laila, e kuʻu lei

Kohu ʻole ʻoe kē nuha mai, e ke aloha e


ʻEu leu ʻae wiki mai hoi ʻoe

Mai nuha mai ʻoe
Mai nuha mai `oe


Tell me, oh please tell me
just what’s wrong to day, my little one
Oh don’t hide, oh please don’t hide
just what’s on your mind, my little one
Do confide in me and do not hesitate
My little one

Hurry please, for I must know
just what the trouble is, precious little one

Let’s be happy once again and let’s forget,
my little one
Hand in hand let’s wander down
old lover’s lane,
my little one
Dry those tears and let me see your
sweet winning smile, charming little one
Let me hold you and caress you
in these loving arms
Oh, don’t sulk my dear please,
Don’t sulk little one
