Words and Music by Charles King

 

E ku‘u lei, e ku‘u lei                        Beloved one, beloved

Lei aloha na‘u, lei makamae         To me you are precious, a precious lei

Eia au ke kali nei                            Here I wait, my heart yearning

Ho‘i mai kāua, ho‘i mai e pili        Come my love, let us be together

 

Ko aloha ka‘u (ko aloha ka‘u)       Your love is mine (your love is mine)

E hi‘ipoi nei                                      It is what I cherish

No nā kau a kau, nā kau a kau      Always and forever, always and forever

Nou ho‘okahi nā li‘a a loko           You are my one desire

Āhea lā ‘oe maliu mai                    When will heed my plea ?

 

E ku‘u lei (e ku‘u lei) makamae    Oh, beloved one, my precious

Ho‘i mai kāua e pili                         Let us be together again
