Just been having too much fun singing these Hawaiian lyrics, so I’d better just post the lyrics here. LOL’ Has any of you tried singing in Hawaiian? Pronunciation is pretty much like in Japanese when you read Romaji, I think… You know like “Mahalo”, which is for thanking would be pronounced MAH-HA-LO, HA as in Japanese “Hajimemashite” and MAH as in “Matsuri”… I guess it’s way easier for Spanish speakers because our vowels A-E-I-O-U sound exactly the same, unlike English.

The only difference I’ve noticed is “W” which is pronounced like “V”, I think… oh, and all those apostrophes hahaha. Anyway, I leave you with the lyrics for He Mele No Lilo and Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride.

He Mele No Lilo
Mahalo nui ia Ke Ali ‘i wahine
‘O Lili’ulani ‘O ka Wo hi ku
Ka pipio mai o ke anuenue Na waiho’o~~~
lu’u a halikeole’e
E nana na maka i ke ao malama mai
Hawai’i akea i Kaua’i

‘O Kalakaua he inoa ‘O Ka pua mae’ole i ka la
Ka pua maila i ka mauna
I ke kuahiwi o Mauna Keä Ke ‘amaila i Kilauea
Malamalama i Wahine kapu
A ka luna o Uweka huna
I ka pali kapu o Ka’auea
Ea mai ke ali’i kia manu
Ua wehi ka hulu o kamamo
Ka pua nani a’o Hawai’i ‘O~~ Kalakaua he inoa

‘O Kalakaua he inoa ‘O Ka pua mae’ole i ka la
Ka pua maila i ka mauna I ke kuahiwi o Mauna Kea
Ke’a mai la i Kilauea
Malamalama i Wahinekapu
A ka luna o Uwekahuna
I ka pali kapu o Ka’auea
Mahalo nui ia Ke Ali’i wahine
‘O Lili’ulani Wo ka ‘O hi ku
Ea mai ke ali’i kia manu Ua wehi i ka hulu o ka mamo
Ka pua nani a’o Hawai’i
‘O Kalakaua he inoa

End Chant:
He Inoa No Kalani Kalakaua Kulele

Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride
Aloha e aloha e
‘Ano ‘ai ke aloha e
Aloha ae aloha e
A nu ay ki aloha e

There’s no place I’d rather be
Then on my surfboard out at sea
Lingering in the ocean blue
And If I had one wish come true
I’d surf till the sun sets
Beyond the horizon

A wiki wiki mai lohi lohi
Lawe mai i ko papa he’e nalu
Flyin by on the Hawaiian roller coaster ride

A wiki wiki mai lohi lohi
La we mai iko papa he na lu
Pi’i na nalu la lahalaha
O ka moana hanupanupa
Lalala i kala hanahana
Me ke kai hoene i ka pu’e one
Helehele mai kakou e
Hawaiian roller coaster ride

There’s no place I’d rather be
Than on the seashore dry, wet free
On golden sand is where I lay
And if I only had my way
I’d play til the sun sets
Beyond the horizon

Lalala i kala hanahana
Me ke kai hoene i ka pu’e one
It’s time to try the Hawaiian Roller coaster ride

Hang loose, hang ten, howzit, shake a shaka
No worry, no fear, ain’t no biggie braddah
Cuttin’ in, cuttin’ up, cuttin’ back, cuttin’ out
Frontside, backside, goofy footed, wipe out
Let’s get jumpin’, surf’s up and pumpin’
Coastin’ with the motion of the ocean
Whirlpools swirling, cascading, twirling
Hawaiian roller coaster ride

[instrumental]

There’s no place I’d rather be
Then on my surfboard out at sea
Lingering in the ocean blue
And if I had one wish come true
I’d surf till the sun sets
Beyond the horizon

A wiki wiki mai lohi lohi
Lawe mai i ko papa he’e nalu
Flyin by on the Hawaiian roller coaster ride

A wiki wiki mai lohi lohi
La we mai iko papa he na lu
Pi’i na nalu la lahalaha
O ka moana hanupanupa
Lalala i kala hanahana
Me ke kai hoene i ka pu’e one
Helehele mai kakou e

  1. Mahalo nui ʻia ke Kuini,
    Ke Aliʻiwahine o Hawaiʻi

    ʻO Liliʻulani kū i ka moku,
    ʻO ka Wohi kū i ke kalaunu,

    Ka pipiʻo mai o ke ānuenue
    Nā waihoʻoluʻu a hālike ʻole

    Nā hana a ke aloha
    Māʻalo ana i ka ua lana mālie

    E nānā nā maka i ke ao malama
    Mai Hawaiʻi ākea i Kauaʻi

    ʻO Kalākaua he inoa
    ‘O ka pua maeʻole i ka lā
    Ka pua maila i ka mauna
    I ke kuahiwi o Mauna Kea
    Ke ‘ā maila i Kīlauea
    Mālamalama i Wahinekapu
    A ka luna o Uwēkahuna
    I ka pali kapu o Kaʻauea
    Ea mai ke aliʻi kia manu
    Ua wehi i ka hulu o ka mamo
    Ka pua nani aʻo Hawaiʻi
    ʻO Kalākaua he inoa

    ʻO Kalākaua he inoa
    ‘O ka pua maeʻole i ka lā
    Ka pua maila i ka mauna
    I ke kuahiwi o Mauna Kea
    Ke ‘ā maila i Kīlauea
    Mālamalama i Wahinekapu
    A ka luna o Uwēkahuna
    I ka pali kapu o Kaʻauea

    Mahalo nui ʻia ke Kuini,
    Ke Aliʻiwahine o Hawaiʻi

    ʻO Liliʻulani kū i ka moku,
    ʻO ka Wohi kū i ke kalaunu,

    Ea mai ke aliʻi kia manu
    Ua wehi i ka hulu o ka mamo
    Ka pua nani aʻo Hawaiʻi
    ʻO Kalākaua he inoa

    He inoa no ka lani Kalākaua, tūlele
