Aloha i ka hele wāwae," holoholo au i kahakai." Palupalu ke one ma " lalo. (2x)" " " " " " " " " " " " " " " " " " " " " " " " " " " " I love taking walks, cruising at the beach. The sand is soft below (me). (2x) “I‘m here! I‘m here! I‘m here!” The big wet wave is scary; I can be crushed if I body board with the turtles. (2x) “I‘m here! I‘m here! I‘m here!” (2x)

Hui: “Eō! Eō! Eō!”" "

Maka‘u ka nalu nui pulu;" " Hiki ia‘u ke pākī ‘ia" " "

I work for my family stringing plumeria leis recalling the rainforest‘s exotic fragrances. (2x) “I‘m here! I‘m here! I‘m here!” The sun shines on us; the Ali‘i are radiant! We feel honored with the warriors! (2x) “I‘m here! I‘m here! I‘m here! (2x) Thanks, ke Akua, for the gifts of the beach!” (3x)

hali‘a ko ka ma‘u kele mau"" ‘ala ʻē. (2x)" " " " "

Hui: “Eō! Eō! Eō!” " "

Malamalama ka lā iā mākou;" ‘ōlinolino nā Ali‘i!" " "

Ho‘ohanohano ‘ia mākou" " me nā koa! (2x)" " " "

Hui: “Eō! Eō! Eō!” (2x) "

Mahalo e ke Akua i nā makana o" " kahakai! (3x)"" " " " "
