Lyrics                                                             

Ha'aheo e ka ua i nā                             
Ke nihi a'ela i ka nahele                        
E hahai (uhai) ana paha i ka liko          
Pua 'āhihi lehua o uka                          

Hui                                                 
Aloha 'oe, aloha 'oe                        
E ke onaona noho i ka lipo 
A ho'i a'e au
'O 'oe nō ka'u ipo aloha
Ke hone a'e nei i
Ku'u manawa
'O 'oe nō ka'u ipo aloha
A loko e hana nei

Tamago
Maopopo ku'u 'ike i ka nani
Nā pua rose o Maunawili
I laila hia'ia nā manu
Miki'ala i ka nani o ka lipo

Proudly swept the rain by the cliffs
As it glided through the trees
Still following ever the bud
The 'āhihi lehua of the vale

Chorus
Farewell to thee, farewell to thee
The charming one who dwells in the shaded bowers
One fond embrace,
'Ere I depart
Until we meet again
Sweet memories come back to me
Bringing fresh remembrances
Of the past
Dearest one, yes you are mine own
From you, true love shall never depart

Refrain
I have seen and watched your loveliness 
The sweet rose of Maunawili
And 'tis there the birds of the love dwell
And sip the honey from your lips

Chorus
