Lūʻau Feet - by Irmgard Farden Aluli
Kane version
 
When I'm walking down the street
People call me lūʻau feet
I don't let that bother me
That would be defeat

I'm a native island boy
Living on my fish and poi
Ten fat toes that's how it goes
For my lūʻau feet

I can do a hula
Even walk on rocks
I can climb a coconut tree
All in barefoot style, that's me
I'm as happy as can be

Shoes don't suit me you can see
Barefoot style is best for me
And my lūʻau feet
And my lūʻau feet
Wahine version
 
When I'm walking down the street
People look at my big feet
I don't let that bother me
I have lūʻau feet

I'm a big wahine e
Wawae nui with a sway
I'm not maha oe, they say
With my lūʻau feet

I can holo-holo
Even round the isle
I can do most anything
All in barefoot style, that's me
I'm as happy as can be

High heels, low heels don't suit me
Barefoot style is best for me.
Oh my lūʻau feet
Oh my lūʻau feet
