PAROLES :
He ho`oheno kê `ike aku
Ke kai moana nui lâ
Nui ke aloha e hi`ipoi nei
Me ke `ala o ka lîpoa

He lîpoa i pae i ke one
Ke one hinuhinu lâ
Wela i ka lâ kê hehi a`e
Mai mana`o he pono kêia

Ho`okohukohu e ka limu kohu
Ke kau i luna ô nâ moku la
`O ia moku `ula la e hô
`Oni ana i `ôi `ane`i

Ha`ina mai ka puana
Ka lîpoa me ka limu kohu
Hoapili `oe me ka pâhe'e
`Anoni me ka lîpalu

E ho'i hou mai ana
No ka'aina iwituamo'o
No Ka Lahui

TRANSLATION:
THE PLANTS OF THE SEA

Such a delight to see
The great big ocean
So familiar and very cherished
With its fragrance of the lîpoa

It is lîpoa which washed ashore
Onto the shiny white sand
Hot from the heating sun as you step on it
Don't think that this is fun

How enticing is the display of limu kohu
Atop the rocks
Enticing one to pick them
As they sway to and fro

Let the story be told
Of the lîpoa and the limu kohu
Close companions of the pâhe`e
Intermingled with the lîpalu
