Hawaii the pride of the U.S.A.
The shining star of the nation
Hawaii the pearl of the seven seas
The fairest land in creation
Her mountains green and her sapphire seas
Her golden sands and her tall palm trees
The lilting songs of a happy land
With a heart that's warm
And a friendly hand
Hawaii caressed by the ocean breeze
The island state sends aloha
To her sister states and to all the world
Hawaii sends aloha, aloha
