E Maliu Mai - by Irmgard Farden Aluli


E maliu mai e kuʻu ipo me ke aloha pumehana
E maliu mai e kuʻu ipo me ke aloha lei makamae
Koʻu ʻiʻini, naʻu ʻoe, me kou leo nahenahe
E maliu mai e kuʻu ipo me ke aloha lei makamae

Say you will be mine, say you will be mine
And I will hold your hand `til the end of time
Lips that are divine, say you will be mine.
And I will love you `til the end of time
My dearest one, it's you I want
My precious one, sweet voice of love
E maliu mai e kuʻu ipo me ke aloha lei makamae

English lyrics by Nâne Aluli


Listen to my call, my dearest sweetheart
And answer tenderly, oh so tenderly
Listen to my call my dearest sweetheart
And answer tenderly that you'll be mine
You will be happy, you will be gay
Sometimes we'll quarrel, love is that way
Listen to my call, my dearest sweetheart
And answer tenderly that you'll be mine
