Pua Tubarose - Kimo Kamana

E kau mai ana ka hali'a
No sweet tubarose poina 'ole

Me he ala e 'i mai ana ia'u
He welina pau 'ole me ia pua

Aloha ku'u pua 'ala onaona
I wili 'ia me maile lau li'i

Ke hea nei ku'u lei 'ala onaona
E ho'i mai kaua la e pili

Ha'ina 'ia mai ana ka puana
Ku'u pua tubarose poina 'ole
Tuberose
A fond memory comes to me
Of the sweet tuberose, so unforgettable
 
Like fragrance, it speaks to me
Forever greeting this flower with affection
  
Love for this sweet fragrant flower
Entwined with small leaf maile
 
Where is this lei of mine, so fragrant?
Return and let us be together
 
The story is told
Of my unforgettable tuberose
