I Lanikai - Nancy Gustafsson

Kau mai la i luna o ma healani,
Ua hula kaua i ke one kea,
Pukukui kaua i ke ahiahi,
E ʻuhene la a pili kaua i Lanikai

Aia koʻu manaʻo i Lanikai
I laila kaua i nanea ai,
I ka pa konane a ka mahina,
Haʻawi au i koʻu aloha ia ʻoe i Lanikai

The moon above us was shining bright,
While we were dancing on sand so white,
So close together 'neath the evening sky,
Oh, what a joy to be with you at Lanikai

My thoughts are often at Lanikai,
Relaxed together, just you and I,
The moon was shining high in the sky,
I gave my love away to you at Lanikai
