First it was the surf at Waikiki
Riding on my longboard endlessly
Addicted to the island sand and sea
The skinny little kid from tin can beach
The healing that it did to my soul
Believe me, didn't want to go home

Got the Love of the Islands
Got the love of the sea
Got the love of the rainbows
And the people around me

Home, Home, Home

Changing from guitar to the ukulele
Then I took a job at the Hana Taxi
Pretty soon they called me the Hana Ricky
Pretty soon I loved being hot & sticky

And the feeling of a Maui rain
Decided it was time to stay
