Aloha Oe (Farewell to Thee) Lyrics

Artist: Marty Robbins
Album: A Portrait of Marty

Hawaiian
Ha`aheo ka ua ina pali,
Ke nihi aela ka nahele
E hahai ana i ka liko,
Pua ahihi lehua o uka

Aloha Oe,
Aloha Oe,
E ke onaona noho ika lipo
A fond embrace,
a hoi ae au,
Until we meet again.

O ka halia`loha i hiki mai,
Ke hone ae nei ku`u manawa.
O oe no ka`u ipon aloha,
A lo ko e hana nei.

(Chorus)

Mao popo ku`u ike i ka nani,
Na pua rose o Maunawili,
Ilaila hiaai na manu
Miki ala i ka nani o ka liko

(Chorus)

English
Proudly swept the rain cloud by the cliffs,
As on it glided through the trees
Still following ever the "liko"
The "Ahihi lehua" of the vale...

Farewell to thee,
Farewell to thee,
Thou charming one who dwellst among the bow'rs.
One fond embrace,
Before I now depart,
Until we meet again.

Thus sweet memories come back to me,
Bringing fresh remembrance of the past
Dearest one, yes, thou art mine own,
From thee, true love shall ne'er depart.

(Chorus)

I have seen and watched thy loveliness,
Thous sweet Rose of Maunawili,
And 'tis there the birds oft love to dwell
And sip the honey from thy lips.

My two cents worth:

Liliuokalani, She wrote this song and from behind her prison wall, she heard the footsteps in the hall - her captors pacing out the fall. But never did she fail to give the gift of song that words should live beyond her time, a sad goodbye, Farewell Hawai'i!
