"I Love Kaua'i" by Keli'i Kaneali'i

I don't live there, but sometimes wish I did.  This great song by Keli`i Kaneali`i reflects my dream of living in my dream place:

If you’re ever on the north side of the Garden Isle,
It’s hot but it’s beautiful you’ll see
Take a walk along the beach
Go down the road to `Anini
A place you know you’ll never want to leave
Peaceful `Anini

Further down the road to Kilauea
Stands a lighthouse by the sea
Tütükäne he lived there
He worked hard throughout the years
You know I never knew my tütü man
Tütü caretaker of the land

I love Kaua’i
Where the mokihana grows
I love Kaua`i
The beauty of the waterfalls
I love this island
Kaua`i my home

Right below the mountain of Kalalea
Anahola is the place to be
Mälama `Äina
You can feel the ocean breeze
Where we are living
Healani the boys and me
Our home down by the sea

I love Kaua`i
Where the maile lau li`i grows
I love Kaua`i
And the `ono külolo
I love this island
Kaua`i my home
