Subject: Pacific Islands Research Centre, Music by Barney Brown, Lyrics/Vocals by Joseph Ashley-Smith

Dig the flow
Around the islands of our home
Where we learn
About this archipelago

We hear the birds
And out in the field each day
We dig the words
“May the life of the land be preserved”

E mau ke ea o ka ‘aina

We’ve come so far
And we work so hard
For all

We must survey
To keep the aliens at bay
Beneath the sun
Restore these islands to the days
When they were young
When endemic species had no woes
Of extinction
Just carefree island fun

E mau ke ea o ka ‘aina

We’ve come so far
And we work so hard for all

(But sometimes we just wanna get on our boards and go!)
