Ua Hiki No Me Au - Traditional

A heaha ka hana ka ʻōpua
Hoʻolai o ke ahiahi
E ʻi mai ana no iaʻu la
Ka ʻiʻini pau ʻole a ka puʻuwai

Ua hiki no me au
Keʻala o ka vabine
E ake ana no ʻike la
I ka nani o nā pua

Ua ʻupu mai ka manaʻo la
Kuʻu hoa hoʻoheno ahiahi
A he ʻole ka maliu ʻia mai la
Ua pulu i ka hunahuna kai

What does the cloud do
As it remains quiet in the evening
It seems to be telling me
Of an endless desire in the heart

It is all right with me
She enjoys the fragrance of the verbena
I am anxious to see
The beauty of the flowers

A thought comes
Of my sweet companion of the evening
But no attention is paid to me
She is drenched by the sea spray
