Wahine Holo Lio  for kumu Keala's work song

Wahine Holo Lio - Chant for Queen Emma


He wahine holo lio `oe la
Maluna o Kîna`u lio la

Ahe lio hula haole la
Pau nâ holo `ewalu la

*Ahe lio hula hau`oli la
Pau na holo `elua

E kuene pono iho ana la
A i pa`a pono ke kaula waha la

Ka pi`ina ao Maemae la
Kowelo kou lipine la

Maluna o ka lio huapala la
Oni ana o Emalani la

E luana na kanaka la
I ka poli a`o Polihale la

I ke kula o Kaukeano la
Ano wale mai ke aloha la

Hi`ialo nâu e Kekela la
Milimili nö Kauka Luka la

Ha`ina mai ka puana la
No Emalani he inoa la

*alternate 2nd verse




Queen Emma Na`ea Rooke You are a lady who likes to ride
On the horse named Kina`u

This horse does a strange dance
Called the figure eight step

*Such a happy, prancing horse
Executing the 2-step

All is well examined
So the reins can be firmly held

Going up to Maemae
Your ribbon flutters in the breeze

On the handsome horse
Emma is moving

The people are passing the time
In the shelter of Polihale

Upon the plain of Kaukeano
Her subjects lovingly watched

One to be lovingly carried by you, Kekela
Caressed by Doctor Rooke

The story is told
To honor the name of Queen Emma

*alternate 2nd verse
