Lyrics
`Auhea wale `oe
E Mauna Loa lâ
Kikala nui
Ho`i ho`i mai `oe i ku`u aloha lâ
E, e, e
Ka`awaloa nei

Ua hiki nô `oe
A e hele ana lâ
Me ka ipo manuahi
A na`u nô ia `oni ho`okahi lâ
E, e. e
Kahi pela a`o kâua

Kô hinakâ popopo lâ
`Ai `ia e ka `elelu
A na`u nô ia e kawele nei lâ
E, e, e
Kô käma`a miomio

Ha`ina `ia mai ana ka puana lâ
Kü `oe a hele pëla
A na`u nô ia `oni ho`okahi lâ
E, e, e
I kahi pela a`o käua

Where are you
O Mauna Loa
Of the big hips
Return my love
Tra la la
To Ka`awaloa

Until you
Come
My lover
It's my lot to be restless alone
Tra la la
In the place that's for us two

Your hankie is worn
Eaten by the roaches
I use it to wipe off
Tra la la
Your pointy-toed shoes

The story is told
Now you just get out
It's my lot to be restless alone
Tra la la
Where we two used to be
