1. E ka wiliwili- | wai
Ko‘iawe i ka | la‘i
A heaha kāu | hana
E naue mālie | nei?
Ei nei, | ei nei
E poahi mai | nei
Āhea, | āhea
‘Oe kāohi | mai? 

2. Oki pau ‘o ia | ala
Ua ninihi ka la- | wena
Ku‘u iki iho | ‘oe
I inu aku | wau         [HMA], [QS]
O whirley water
Gentle rain shower on the move
What do you thin you're up to
Circling, twirling so quietly

There! Yea yea coming up!
As you revolve
Will you, will you
hold still?

Amazing the way you take over
Come, slow down a little
So I can take a drink  [HMA]
