The community group I Aloha Molokai has released a version of The Twelve Days of Christmas that pokes fun at Constance Lau, the president and chief executive officer of Hawaiian Electric Industries.

Lau’s annual compensation in 2013 was $5.8 million, a figure I Aloha Molokai believes a wee bit high for a company that charges the highest utility rates in the nation. (She’s also chairwoman of American Savings Bank, a subsidiary of HEI.) What could she possibly spend all that money on?

The song was recorded by Kanohowailuku Helm (ukulele and vocals), Bob Underwood (upright bass) and John Lee Aki (drums). I Aloha Molokai recently led a fight against wind farms on the Friendly Isle.
