"Aloha Oe (Farewell to Thee)" as written by Queen Lili'uokalani and Rocky Feller....
Ha`aheo ka ua ina pali
Ke nihi aela ka nahele
E hahai ana i ka liko
Pua ahihi lehua o uka

Aloha Oe
Aloha Oe
E ke onaona noho ika lipo
A fond embrace
a hoi ae au
Until we meet again

O ka halia`loha i hiki mai
Ke hone ae nei ku`u manawa
O oe no ka`u ipon aloha
A lo ko e hana nei

Mao popo ku`u ike i ka nani
Na pua rose o Maunawili
Ilaila hiaai na manu
Miki ala i ka nani o ka liko

Proudly swept the rain cloud by the cliffs
As on it glided through the trees
Still following ever the "liko"
The "Ahihi lehua" of the vale

Farewell to thee
Farewell to thee
Thou charming one who dwellst among the bow'rs
One fond embrace
Before I now depart
Until we meet again

Thus sweet memories come back to me
Bringing fresh remembrance of the past
Dearest one, yes, thou art mine own
From thee, true love shall ne'er depart

I have seen and watched thy loveliness
Thous sweet Rose of Maunawili
And 'tis there the birds oft love to dwell
And sip the honey from thy lips
