Ali‘i ‘Iolani

This song is by The Mākaha Sons and appears on the album Ho'oluana (1991) by Mākaha Sons of Ni'ihau.

'Auhea wale 'oe e ku'u aloha 'eâ
Ne'ene'e mai 'oe, ne'ene'e mai 'oe
A pili pono

Kakona ka 'i'ini me ka mana'o
Lalawa a ninihi, lalawe a ninihi
He ma'û ia.

Ha'a mai nâ hene ua noe luna 'eâ
Waiho kâhela, waiho kâhela
Luhe i ka wai.

He kai nehe mai i ka 'ae one 'eâ
I ka pâ honehone, i ka pâ honehone
Hone i ka poli

I ku'u aloha e hone mai 'oe 'eâ
Pipili a mamau, pipili a mamau
A hô'i'o.

Ha'ina ku'u li'a po'ina 'ole
Ke aloha i pili 'ia, ke aloha i pili 'ia
I ka pu'uwai.

Hea aku no wau e ô mai 'oe 'eâ
Ali'i 'Iolani, Ali'i 'Iolani
Nou ke kahua

Now listen my love
Snuggle up, snuggle up
Till you're good and close

Desire throbs at the thought
Being carried away to the brink
Is better than nothing

Misty rain from above comes down the slopes
Lying spread out, lying spread out
Drooping with water

It's a sea lapping on the soft sand
With a sound so appealing
Appealing to the heart

Oh my love, tease me gently
Cling close as always
As if you take this seriously

This tells of my unforgettable desire
The love that is held fast
In the heart

I call out, oh answer
Noble Iolani, noble Iolani
In your honor, this theme
