Humuhumunukunukuapua’a

Susah gak sih bacanya? Humuhumunukunukuapua’a, jadi ingat pelajaran spelling pas kuliah dulu. Baca dengan teliti dan ucapkan beberapa kali sampai lancar. Humuhumunukunukuapua’a. Dah bisa gak bacanya?

Apa sih sebetulnya Humuhumunukunukuapua’a ini?
Well, pertama kali mendengar kata ini sebagai judul sebuah lagu di Highschool Musical II. Lagunya lumayan lucu dan ear-catching. Ternyata setelah baca-baca lebih detail lagi, Humuhumunukunukuapua’a meruapakan official state fish Hawaii sejak tahun 1990 dan lebih dikenal dengan ikan humuhumu yang dalam bahasa Hawaii artinya  “triggerfish with a pig-like short snout”

Here is the song featured on Youtube

LYRIC:

Ryan:
A long time ago in a land far away, lived the Pinapple Princess, Tiki.
She was sweet as a peach in a pinapple way, so sad that she hardly speaky.
Still, if you listen well, you’ll hear her secret wish.

Sharpay:
[spoken] Aloha everybody, my name is Tiki!
I long to free a truly remarkable fish My sweet prince.

Humuhumunukunukuapua’a makihiki malahini whoo
Humuhumunukunukuapua’a
Ooh! Hawana wakawakawakaniki pu pu pu.

[spoken]
Ryan, the fog?

Ryan:
She dreams of a boy who is under a spell that has left him all wet and scaly.

Sharpay:
Sing from my heart of the power of love, just a girl with a ukulele.
Come to me, my sweet one, and be still. I’ll grasp your tail and stroke each tender gill.
My sweet prince.

Humuhumunukunukuapua’a Makihiki malahini-who Humuhumunukunukuapua’a
Ooh! Hawana wakawakawakaniki pu pu pu.

[spoken]
Now this is where we land into the whole kabuki thing.

Sharpay Ryan & Girls:
The clouds turned grey, and the big sky cried, and the ocean had a fit.

Sharpay:
[spoken]
Ryan, where’s my ocean!?

Sharpay, Ryan & Girls:
Then the wind went whoosh, and thunder cracked, and mighty Mount Fufu spit.

Sharpay:
[spoken] Mighty Mount Fufu spit!

Ryan:
T-T-T-Tiki T-Tiki Wanna speaky, speaky, speaky, With the mighty spirit Fufu.
T-T-T-Tiki T-Tiki Wanna speaky, speaky, speaky…

Sharpay:
So words I will not mince. Please make a man of my fresh fish prince.

[spoken]
This is real fish talk… No lie.  (squeals)
And then the fish turns into a gorgogeus prince and sings:

I’m Prince Humuhumunukunukuapua’a Amakahiki malahini who.
(With me!) Humumunukunukuapua’a Ooh! Hawana wakawakawakaniki pu pu pu.

Sharpay:

EVERYBODY!
All:

Humuhumunukunukuapua’a Makihiki malahini-who Humuhumunukunukuapua’a
Ooh! Hawana wakawakawakaniki pu pu pu. wakawakawakaniki pu pu pu. wakawakawakaniki pu… pu… pu!Ahh…!!
