My Lovely Hawaiian Maid (Haleiwa Maid) - by Esther K. Smith

My lovely Hawaiian maid
Lives in Haleʻiwa
With curly brunette hair
And a winning smile
Her tiny fingers
Reveal her graceful charms
Her body moves and sways
In a miomio style
Her eyes are filled with gladness
As she looks and winks at me
And oh, those charming glances
Stole my heart away
Her feet dance to the rhythm
Of a mellow steel guitar
As she dances to the strains
Of Liliʻu Ē

Haʻina ʻia mai
Ana ka puana
My lovely Hawaiian maid
She lives in Haleʻiwa
