VERSE 1

Mālama means to care for lovingly

I care for you, you care for me

Honua is the homeland of our birth

Whether it’s an island or the Planet Earth

 

BRIDGE

Sailing a canoe on a great big sea

There’s only so much for you and me

The wise folks knew it way back in the past

If you’re gonna make it, got to make it last

Mā-lama … honua

Mā-lama … honua

E ala, e ala, ea

E ala, e ala,  a

VERSE 2

Take a look around and you will find

People doing things with a different mind

Caring for the earth and the deep blue sea

I give to you, you give to me

 

BRIDGE

It’s just a little island in outer space

We’re gonna have to learn to take care of the place

With everybody helping, we can do a lot

Mālama the honua ‘cause it’s all we’ve got

 

CHORUS

Mālama honua

Mālama honua

Mālama honua

E ala, e ala, ea

E ala, e ala, ea

 

Mālama honua

Mālama honua

Mālama honua

E ala, e ala, ea

E ala, e ala, ea

E ala, e ala, ea
