Henehene ko aka, kou le 'ale 'a paha
He mea ma 'a mau ia, for you and I.

Ka'a uila makeneki, he 'oni'oni kou kino
He mea ma 'a mau ia, for you and I

I Kaka 'ako makou, 'ai ana I ka pipi stew
He mea ma 'a mau ia, for you and I

I Kapahulu makou, 'ai ana lipoa
He mea ma 'a ia, for you and I

I Waikiki makou, 'au anai ke kai
He mea ma 'a mau ia, for you and I

Our eyes have met, our lips not yet
Palama pono kou kino, when we put inside

Haina mai ka puana, kou le 'ale 'a paha
He mea ma 'a ia, for you and I
