Home Kapaka - Words by Mary Pukui, music by Maddy Lam 

Hanohano ʻia home aʻo Kapaka
E kipa aʻe e nā pua a ka lehulehu

Ka nehe o ke kai lana mālie
Ke ʻala līpoa e moani nei

A ʻike i ka nani o Kaliʻuwaʻa
Ka beauty aʻo Sacred Falls aʻu i aloha

Hoʻi au i ka home o nā Makua
Nanea e hauʻoli me nā hoaloha

Puana kuʻu mele no Kapaka
E kipa aʻe e nā pua a ka lehulehu

Proud are we of our home, Kapaka
Where there is welcome for all 

The lapping of the sea is gentle
The fragrance of seaweed is in th air

Behold the splendor of Kaliʻuwaʻa
The beauty of Sacred Falls, that I love 

I go to the home of my parents
To relax and be happy with loved ones

My song is a story for Kapaka
Where there is welcome for all

Source: Pamai Tenn Collection - Kapaka (the tobacco), a district near Hauʻula, Oahu, takes its name from the crop that was once grown there. Verse 3, Kaliʻuwaʻa valley (the canoe bilge) is named for the huge grooves in the narrow end of the gorge also called wa`a, for they resemble the hollow of a canoe. Legend says, Kamapuaʻa, the pig god, was being pursued after robbing his mother's hen-roost. Scrambling up the mountainside, his hooves scored the cliffs as he made his escape. © 1950 Criterion Music Corp
