My Sweet Sweeting - Traditional 

Kuʻu ʻohu lei ānuenue
Koʻiaweawe nei i ke pili
ʻO ka pai a ka makani Kiu
Ka ʻiniki ʻana iho welawela
 
Hui:
Hoʻi mai kāua e pili
My sweet sweeting
ʻAʻohe pili hemo ʻole i ke kau
My sweet sweeting
My adornment, a rainbow lei
Lies spreading over the pili grass
When lifted by the Kiu wind
One feels a sharp pinch
 
Chorus:
Come, let us be together
My sweet sweeting
Never more to be separated through the seasons
My sweet sweeting
