Back in '39 my then girl friend [she still is and is sitting right here beside me as I type] and I spent a whole half-a-buck on a movie and ice cream cones as an evening out on the neighborhood.
The Movie was “Hawaii”----------and there was a phrase in the theme music which I would like some Kane or wahine to interpret for me
I believe it to be a welcome ,and an invitation,into ones home-------------But can anyone tell me EXACTLY what it means?
With the appropiate allowances for Haoli spelling it goes like this:
“Kome mai no kaua i ke hali melikahao”.
Can someone translate it for me-----before the old language disappears from the Islands completely?
And before I go all pupuli[?]
