Nani Nani/Nani Venuse
by Na Palapalai



He nani kou e Venuse
E kau ha`aheo nei
`Olinolino mai i luna
O ka maka o ka `ôpua

He mana`o ho`ohali`a
Ho`onape ana i ka poli
I kau ha`i ana mai
Eia a`e ku`u huapala

Ku`u hoa kuikui lima
O ka pô mahina la`i kônane
I ka nehe mai a ke kai
Hâwanawana i ke one

Pili `ia me ke aloha
I ka ua nui me ka makani
Kama`ia a pa`a pono
Ua kumu i ka pu`uwai

Ha`ina mai ka puana
No ka nani O Venuse
`Olinolino mai i luna
I ka maka o ka `ôpua

Beauty is yours, O Venus
Appearing proudly on high
Gleaming from on high
In the face of the cloudbank

A reminiscent thought
Makes my breath come faster
When you tell me
Here comes my sweetheart

My hand holding companion
Of the quiet moonlit night
When the sea rustles
Whispering on the sand

Together with love
In the great rain and the wind
Bound securely forever
Rooted in the heart

The story is told
Of the beauty of Venus
Gleaming from on high
In the face of the cloudbank
