He Punahele Nô `Oe - by Albert Nahale`a


He punahele no `oe
Nâ ka makua
Pûlama `ia no `oe
Me ke aloha

He wahine u`i
A he pua nani
Ma ku`u poli mai `oe
Ku`u lei

You are a beautiful baby
Pride of my heart
You are a dear little lady
Right from the start
You`re so sweet and lovely
Like a pretty flower
Close to my bosom I'll hold you
Baby mine

You are a favorite
Of your parents
With love

A pretty young girl
Like a beautiful flower
Upon my bosom you are
My lei
