Ha`aheo wale ho`i `oe
E Kaho`olawe `ina kaulana
Ho`oheno ana oe
Me ka hinahina

E aloha i ke k a ka wai
I ka`i mai ua anu kua
A luna au
O Kaho`olawe

Ahuwale n pua hinahina
Lua`ole n hano a ka makani
O ke Kiu Ke`e ia
A`o n pali

Ha`ina `ia mai
Ana ka puana
Nohona a mana`o mai
`O au e ke hoa

You are proud, indeed
Kaho`olawe, famous land
You are so cherished
With your hinahina

Enjoy the water
We seek shelter from the chilly rain
High
On Kaho`olawe

Abundant, the hinahina blossoms
Incomparable, the breeze that blows
The wind named Kiu Ke`e
Of the cliffs

Tell
The refrain
My thoughts return to my home
And my friends
