Pupu A'o 'Ewa

Ho'ia 'au i kawa...
He mai kai...
Pupu (a'o 'Ewa)

E naue mai ('a e 'ike)
I ka mea hou ('o ka 'aina)
Ahe 'aina (ua kaulana)
Mai na kupuna mai
Alahula Pu'uloa he ala hele no Ka'ahupahau (Ka'ahupahau)

Submitter's comments:

The Hawaiian 'W's are pronounced like a 'V'. Thus, "Ewa" -->"Eeh-Vaah".
