Le`ahi, `uhe`uhene
Kaimana Hila, `uhe`uhene
Hoku kau `ale kai a`o Mamala
`Uhe`uhene

{There is Leahi
Diamond Head
Rising star of Mamala}

Malama pono `oe, uheuhene
I ka poe pele, `uhe`uhene
`O ili kaua la ilaila
`Uhe`uhene

{Watch out
For the bell buoy
Coming to view by the reef}

`O ka po`e kaulana, `uhe`uhene
Kau i ka nuku, `uhe`uhene
Nana a`o ho`owale nei i ka moana
`Uhe`uhene

The festive crowd
Stands at the harbor mouth
Just looking at the ocean

Ha'ina `ia, `uhe`uhene
Mai ka puana, `uhe`uhene
O ka poe kaulana kau i ka nuku
`Uhe`uhene

Told is
The story
The festive crowd at the mouth of the harbor
