E Ku`u Lei E Ku`u Ipo- Kalei Kaluna

 

E ku`u lei, e ku`u ipo
Ke aloha i milia `ia
Ke aloha i milia `ia
Ke `ala onaona
 
 
With you in my heart
When you're in my arms
Hold me, hold me, hold me
Hold me darling one
You are the only one
 
 
Lei `ia mai, lei `ia `oe
Ku`u ipo ho`oheno
Ku`u ipo ho`oheno
Po`ina `ole ia
 
 
With you in my heart
When you're in my arms
Kiss me, kiss me, kiss me
Kiss me, darling one
You are the only one
 
 
Ha`ina `ia mai ana ka puana
Ku`u ipo ho`oheno
Ku`u ipo ho`oheno
Po`ina ole ia
 
 
Ha`ina ia mai ana ka puana
Ke aloha i milia `ia
Ke aloha i milia `ia
Ke `ala onaona

 

My wreath, my sweetheart

Sweetheart, come, you are
My cherished sweetheart
My cherished sweetheart
So unforgettable
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Tell the refrain of
My cherished sweetheart
My cherished sweetheart
So unforgettable
 
 
Tell the refrain of
My beloved
My beloved
So alluring
