Lyrics

Another road built on sacred land
One more hotel gone upon
Our Birth Sands
Where have all of our Ali'i gone
Maybe they'll return when
They hear this song

They took the land, they took aloha
They took the Queen even though
They didn't know her
Suppressed Ikaika and then Kupuna
Broke the ohana,
But they couldn't take the mana
But they couldn't take the mana

Another puka in the mountain Side
One more bone move for a faster ride
Where have all of our old ways gone
Maybe you'll bring them back
When you hear this song

They took the land, they took aloha
They took the Queen even though
They didn't know her
Suppressed Ikaika and then Kupuna
Broke the ohana,
But they couldn't take the mana
But they couldn't take the mana

I remember how things used to be
My Tutu used to say
As I sat upon his knee

RAP
We didn't need a lot of money
We didn't have a lot of things
The only mau mea we needed
Was what the Akua brings
Like the sunshine and the rain
And the wind was so much stronger
The life of the land
Must live forever and longer

They took the land, they took aloha
They took the Queen even though
They didn't know her
Suppressed Ikaika and then Kupuna
Broke the ohana,
But they couldn't take the mana
But they couldn't take the mana

Another ohana must move away
The better prices and lifestyles
So they say
Where have all of our people gone
One day they will return
And sing this song

They took the land, they took aloha
They took the Queen even though
They didn't know her
Suppressed Ikaika and then Kupuna
Broke the ohana,
But they couldn't take the mana
But they couldn't take the mana

They took the land, they took aloha
They took the Queen even though
They didn't know her
Suppressed Ikaika and then Kupuna
Broke the ohana,
But they couldn't take the mana
But they couldn't take the mana
