Waihe'e - Traditional

He 'iniki lâ ke 'iniki
He 'iniki wela wela ka ke aloha
Hu'i e hu'i la hui 'eha
Hui konikoni i ka pu'uwai

Pa mai ka makani kaulana
Kili'o'opu a'o Waihee
Ko mai ke ala hu'i hu'i
Ho'i ho'i lau la'i'o Eleile

A pain, a pain
A burning pain of love
An ache, an ache, a throbbing ache
A throbbing ache in the heart

The famous wind blows
Kili'o'opu of Waihe'e
Wind borne is the pain
Return true love, come back to Eleile
