[Hawaiian]

He aloha e ka i'a la
'Ai a ka 'ama'ama
'Ai a ka i'a la
'Ai a ka lawalu
'Ai a ka ho'omoemoe

He aloha e ka i'a la
'Ai a ka pa'a kai
'Ai a ka i'a la
'Ai a ka 'ono la
'Ai a ka sawa sawa

He aloha e ka i'a la
'Ai a ka ni'oi
'Ai a ka i'a la
'Ai a ka welawela
'Ai a ka puhipuhi

He aloha e ka i'a la
'Ai a ka 'o'opu
'Ai a ka i'a la
'Aia a ka 'ele'ele
'Ai a ia pake'oke'o

He aloha e ka i'a la
'Ai a ka 'opihi
'Ai a ka i'a la
'Ai a ka maka la
'Ai a ka piha pohaku

Haina 'ai 'ia mai
'Ai ana ka puana
Hiu a ka pipi stew
Hiu a ka miki poi
Hiu a ka piha opu

[English]

I love fish
To eat mullet
To eat fish
To eat it broiled in ti leaves
Eat, then sleep

I love fish
To eat it salted
To eat fish
To eat it savory
To eat bonito broiled

I love fish
To eat with red peppers
To eat fish
Eat it steaming hot
So hot, you have to blow on it

I love fish
To eat goby fish
To eat fish
To eat seaweed
To eat to excess

I love fish
To eat limpets
To eat fish
To eat it raw
To eat until you're stuffed

Tell the story
To eat
Throw it in the beef stew
Throw it on a dab of poi
Throw in one full stomach
