Waimea Ku`u One Hanau (Waimea, My Birthplace)

by Alice Namakelua
The mountains, the cowboys and the lei of Waimea are all mentioned in this fun Hawaiian song.

Nani Waimea ku`u one hanau
Kaulana i ka ua Kipu`upu`u
Me na kuahiwi nani `ekolu
Nou mau kou ho`ohihi

Kaulana no na paniolo pipi
Hiehie maluna o na lio
Kau e ka lei me ka hainaka nui
Ho`ohihi `oe ke `ike

Ha`ina `ia ku`u one hanau
Kaulana Ikuwa me Ka`aua
Neia mau keiki lawe a lilo
I ka hae o ka lanakila
