Kaleohano by Sonny Landreth


Kaleohano, 'o Kaleohano kou inoa
Kaleohano (a name meaning:The Voice (of) Authority and Respect),
Kaleohano (is) your name
Ku'u home, ku'u home, ku'u home 'o Keaukaha*
My (in a form expressing affection) home, my home, my home, Keaukaha
Kaulana 'o Keaukaha
Famous (is) Keaukaha

(E hana hou I ka paukû mua loa )
(Repeat first verse)

Kaleohano, 'o Kaleohano kou inoa
Kaleohano, Kaleohano (is) your name
Ku'u 'âina, ku'u kulâiwi, a huli I ke kai
My land, my native land, and dashing and receding (is) the sea
Kaulana 'o Keaukaha.
Famous (is) Keaukaha.


Aloha au Iâ Mauna Kea, I ke anu o ke ahiahi
Love I Mauna Kea (meaning, White Mountain, referring to mountain on the island of Hawai'I), in the cold of the evening.
Ho'olono, ho'olono, ho'olono I ka leo ka makani
Listen, listen, listen to the voice of the wind
Keaukaha nô e ka wahi.
Keaukaha indeed, the place.



(E hana hou I ka paukû hope)
(Repeat last verse)

*Keaukaha = the passing current, referring to Hawaiian homestead land in Hilo, Hawai'I; in fast speech the "au" sound in Keaukaha is pronounced as an "ou" sound.
