Lyrics:

Lei Ho’oheno 
 

E ku’u pili aloha
Ku’u lei kau po’ohiwi
Onaona i ka ihu
Nohea i ka maka
Liliko i ka ua kilihune
Kilipohe i ke kanilehua

Wewelo ke aloha i ka ‘onohi
‘Ume’ume mai ho’i kau
E kahi lei ho’oheno
My dear friend
My lei that adorns my shoulders
Sweet to smell
Beautful to look at
Glistening in the wind-blown spray
Moistened by the kanilehua rain

Love streams before my eyes
Oh, how alluring you are
My cherished friend

Lyrics and Music wirtten by Kainani Kahaunaele.  English Translation from Weldon Kekauoha.
