Renowned is Hilo

For the rain that sings upon the Lehua

The rain that soaks the skin

The skin of the visitors

So very beautiful is the view

Of the lovliness of Waiakea

The waters of Waiolama

All of Hawai’i is brightened

Well known is Mokuola

An island jetting out in the sea

The skin is being soaked

By the flying seaspray

Wearing the lovely lei

The blossom of the lehua

The story is told

Of the rain that sings upon the lehua
