lyrics

Here in Wainiha Valley,
Lives our happy family.
Banana trees sing in the breeze, soak up the sun.
Green turns to yellow, fruit for everyone.
Papaya for papa and mama
Ripe avocado good for little one,
Learning to use her fingers,
Playing with caterpillar.
Rooster crows and baby knows it’s time to wake.
So much to learn today, she just can’t wait.
In the dawn, all is blue and turns to pink.
Here comes mama’s milk, so sweet to drink.

Here in Wainiha Valley,
Lives our happy family.
The river flows fast and free from the mountains,
Joins the stream and then the sea, waves crashing.
Down the way at Kee, we go swimming.
Everyday we watch the sunset, smiling.

Then back up into the valley.
We wash off our feet all salty and sandy.
In the night, lightning strikes with thunder.
