Ulili ë
(Ahahana 'ulili ehehene 'ulili ahahana)
'Ulili ho'i
(Ehehene 'ulili ahahana 'ulili ehehene)
'Ulili holoholo kahakai ë
O ia kai ua lana mälie

The sandpiper
The sandpiper returns
Sandpiper runs along the beach
Where the sea is peaceful and calm

Hone ana ko leo e 'ulili ë
O kahi manu noho 'ae kai
Kia'i ma ka lae a'o kekaha
'O ia kai ua lana mälie

The voice of the sandpiper is soft and sweet
Little bird who lives by the sea
Ever watchful on the beaches
Where the sea is calm

Hone ana ko leo kölea ë
Pehea 'o Kahiki? Maika'i nö
'O ia 'äina 'uluwehiwehi
I hui pü 'ia me ke onaona

The voice of the 'ulili is soft and sweet
How are you, stranger? Very well
You grace our land
Where the sea is always calm
