Aloha 'Oe

Many of us have copies of The Black Camel with 'Aloha 'Oe' at the end. I thought we might like to see the lyrics and came across this website. Enjoy!

Aloha 'Oe
words and music by Queen Lili'uokalani
Ha'aheo ka ua i na pali
Proudly swept the rain by the cliffs
Ke nihi a'ela i ka nahele
As it glided through the trees
E hahai (uhai) ana paha i ka liko
Still following ever the bud
Pua 'ahihi lehua o uka
The 'ahihi lehua of the vale
Aloha 'oi, aloha 'oi
Farewell to you, Farewell to you
I ke onaona noho i ka lip
The charming one who dwells in the shaded bowers
One fond embrace,
One fond embrace,
A ho'i a'e au
'Ere I depart
Until we meet again
Until We meet again
'O ka hali'a aloha i hiki mai
Sweet memories come back to me
Ke hone a'e nei i
Bringing fresh remembrances
Ku'u manawa
Of the past
'O'oe no ka'u ipo aloha
Dearest one, yes, you are mine own
A loko e hana nei
From you, true love shal never depart
Maopopp ku'u 'ike i ka nani
I have seen and watched your loveliness
Na pua rose o Maunawili
The sweet rose of Maunawili
I laila hia na manu
And 'tis there the birds of love dwell
Miki'ala i ka nani o ka lipo
And sip the honey from your lips
Source: Jonathan Wong - This song of farewll between two lovers is the most famous of the Queen's compositions, written in 1878. The tune of the verse resembles "The Rock Beside the Sea", composed by Charles Crozat Converse and published in Philadelphia, 1857. The melody of the chorus is remakably close to the chorus of George Frederick Root's composition, "There's Music In The Air", published in 1854. There is a manuscript of "Ahoha Oe" in Queen Lii'uokalani's handwriting in the Bishop Museum. Lahilahi Webb and Virginia Cominis Koch tell of a visit b the queen and her attendants to Maunawili Ranch, the home of Edwin oyd n windward Oahu. As they started their return trip to Honolulu on horseback up the steep Pali trail, the queen turned to admire the view of Kaneohe Bay. She witnessed a particularlly affectionate fairwell between Coloel James Boyd of her party and a lovely young girl from Maunawili. As they rode up the steep cliff and into the swirling winds, she started to hum this melody weaving words into a romantic song. At the top of the pali, a cloudhung over the mounntain peak and slowly floated down Nu'uanu Valley. The queen continued to hum and completed her song as they rode the winding trail down the valley back to Honolulu. Tanslated by Lili'uolalani.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
