I KA LA'I O LAHAINA (TRANSLATION)

In the calm of Lähainä
I heard the chirping of a bird
I saw that it was a noio
Sing again to me, it is a soothing song
Sing again to me, it is a soothing song
It was there that I relaxed to its enchantment
A wondrous thing indeed
You have flown away, ocean-faring bird
Do not forget our love for each other
Sing again to me, it is a soothing song
It was there that I relaxed to its enchantment
A wondrous thing indeed
I think of my ocean-faring bird
Much beloved is this noio’s voice
Let it be told
