Hawaii '78

Ua mau ke ea o ka aina i ka pono Hawai’i*
Ua mau ke ea o ka aina i ka pono Hawai’i

How would they feel
would their smiles be content
rather then cry
cry for the gods, cry for the people
cry for the lands that were taken away
and in it you’ll find Hawai’i

Ua mau ke ea o ka aina ka pono Hawai’i

How would they feel
would their smiles be content
rather then cry
cry for the gods, cry for the people
cry for the land that was taken away
and in it you’ll find Hawai’i

Ua mau ke ea o ka aina i ka pono Hawai’i
Ua mau ke ea o ka aina i ka pono Hawai’i

*the constant, wet rain gives life to the land and brings goodness/change to Hawai’i
