Nā Pua - by Andy Iona & John Noble


Pua lehua kuʻu pua onaona
Hanohano Hawaiʻi nō ka ʻoi

Pua roselani kuʻu pua milimili
Kilakila o Maui nō ka ʻoi

Pua ʻilima kuʻu pua poina ʻole
Ohuohu Oʻahu nō ka ʻoi

Pua mokihana kuʻu pua aloha
Kaulana Kauaʻi nō ka ʻoi

Haʻina ka puana nā pua o ka ʻāina
Hanohano Hawaiʻi nō ka ʻoi
Lehua blossom, my fragrant flower
Honoring Hawaiʻi, the best

Rose blossom, my flower to caress
Majesty of Maui, the best

ʻIlima blossom, my flower, so unforgettable
Decoration of Oʻahu, the best

Mokihana blossom, my flower of love
Celebrating Kauaʻi, the best

Tell the refrain of the blossoms of the land
Honoring Hawaiʻi, the best
