Mele Lanai - Words & music by Val Kepilino

He mele kêia aina o Lâna`i
Ka huina li`ili`i o nâ mokupuni
Li`ili`i ka mana`o me ka `ôlelo
Mea nui o nâ moku `âina

Kona pua pono`î ke kaunaoa
Ua `oi kona u`i mua ka lehua
Ka wai ho`olu`u like meke kula
Pili me kûkuna o ka lâ

Ka mea nui o kêia ailana
Ka halakahiki ho`owaiwai
E ho`okaulana `oe kou inoa
'Imi ola no ka lehulehu

Ha`ina `ia mai ana ka puana
Pumehana kou inoa a`o Lâna`i
Li`ili`i `oe ke aloha nui
He mana`o poina `ole

Here is my song of Lâna`i
One of the little islands of Hawai`i
Though it be little in words and thoughts
It is a very important island

Her own flower is the kaunaoa
She has her own beauty as the lehua of Hawai`i
The dye of her color is like gold
Almost a duplicate of the rays of the sun

This island is recognized for
The pineapple that brings her wealth
Her name is known everywhere
It brings prosperity to the population

Now ends my song of Lâna`i
Lâna`i, your name is warmly recalled
Though you are small, you are greatly loved
You'll never be forgotten
