Makaha Sons Of Ni'ihau – Christmas Lu'au lyrics

'Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the hale
Was singing and dancing and ho'omalimali
Papa in his malo and me in mu'umu'u
Greeting 'aikane, pehea, mahalo

Sister gathered flowers for a lei
Brother watched the imu all of the day
Soon the music boys began to play
Mele old and new of Hawai'i nei

The tables were loaded with plenty of kaukau
'Opihi and salmon and steaming hot laulau
We ate and talked stories until we were all pau
It was really maika'i at our Christmas lu'au
