Born and raised on this beautiful island of Kaua‘i you can’t help but to love it with all of your heart.
Composing this song is the way of expressing my love and your love for Kaua‘i.
I Love You Kaua‘i
I love you Kaua‘i, your mountains and valleys,
This magical tropic isle across the sea.
I love you Kaua‘i, your people and places,
From beautiful Hanalei to lovely Koke‘e.
Chorus: Kaua‘i, is the garden isle in all Hawai‘i Nei,
The sun shines on Wailua Bay,
It’s here I want to stay forever.
I love you Kaua‘i, your flowers and rainbows,
You’ll always be in my heart forever more.
