E Ala E, E Ala E
We, the voices behind the face,
Of the Hawaiian nation, the Hawaiian race
Rise for justice the day has come
For all our people to stand as one,

Repeat the first verse

Chorus
E Ala E, `eâ, `eâ, `eâ, `eâ,
E Ala E, `eâ, `eâ, `eâ,
E huli i ka ho'i i ka pâkini alamihi
Gone are the days of the alamihi ways
E kiko i ka piko o ka mana o ka po'e
The power of the people is the piko
`O ka piko ke aloha o ka 'âina, o ka 'âina

We the warriors born to live
On what the land and sea can give
Defend our birthright to be free
Give our children liberty,

Repeat chorus

Repeat verse 2

E Ala E, `eâ, `eâ, `eâ , E Ala E
Repeat several times

    General CommentBJ Penn uses this song as part of his entrance music in the UFC.

    I love the song and how relaxing it is. As far as meaning it just seems straight forward.
