I waho makou i ka po nei
A’ike i ka nani o kaimana hila
Kaimana hila, kau mai i luna.

I waho makou i Waikiki
A ‘ike i ka nani o papa he’e nalu
Papa he’e nalu, he’ehe’e malie.

I waho makou kapi’olani paka
A ‘ike i ka nani o lina poepoe
Lina poepoe, ho’oluhi kino.

Ha’ina ia mai ana ka puana
A ‘ike i ka nani o kaimana hila
Kaimana hila, kau mai i luna.

We were all out last night
And saw the beauty of Diamond Head
Diamond Head, set high above.

We were all out at Waikiki
And saw the beauty of board surfing
Board surfing, gently gliding.

We were all out at Kapi’olani Park
And saw the beauty of the race track
Race track, that tires the body.

The refrain is told
We saw the beauty of Diamond Head
Diamond Head, set high above.

Ha’ina Hou:
Ha’ina ia ma ana ka puana
A ‘ike i ka nani o kaimana hila
Kaimana hila, kau mai i luna.
