Haʻaheo nā kane ʻōiwi Hawaiʻi, ʻeā, ʻeā
O neia ʻāina kaulana, ʻeā, ʻeā
Singing with love
Of the different beautiful songs
Proud of the native sons of Hawaiʻi
Of this famous land

It`s a joy to listen
To the affectionate songs
Hearts always happy
And the smiles warm

There`s only one to lead
Who appears contented
Sweet male voices
Blend with their companions

Told with love
Of the different beautiful songs
Proud of the native sons of Hawaiʻi
Of this famous land
