COUNTRY: Cook Islands

A welcome song from the Polynesian island of Manihiki, which is a stunning atoll in the Cook Islands.

Lyrics of the All Around This World version:

Tipo tipo te ye, vaya ki’te papa,
O te ye papa li’po, tiki vaya ki’te papa

Welcome to our island home, share our peace and joy
Welcome every mom and dad and every girl and boy

Welcome to our island home of coconuts and pearls
Welcome every dad and mom and every boy and girl

If you stay a day you will never wanna go away

Tipo tipo te, tipo tipo te, vaya te papa
