Aso Le Mativa Na

Remembering the hard times back in the islands

(Pukaru version)

Sa ou fiafia tele ina ua e valaau mai o ita,
Ae ao ina ou faanoi i lo’u tama,
Na ou vaai ua savali mai na ou popole ne’i fai mai e leai,
Lona leo malie lo’u atalii e, vave mai.
Lona ie fai taga ma le mitiafu e masaesae.
I lona ofu ‘i’ila ae leai ni ona seevae.
Tasi le ta tala sa tau sefe mo le tifaga.
A’o lenei ua ta ulufia ma le fiafia

[Tali]
O aso le mativa na
O aso le mativa na
Afai na ta masani ai
O aso le mativa na

Ua suia lava lenei taimi
Atoa fo’i lo’u olaga
Ou ofu silika vali fo’i ou foliga
Ou se’evae muli uumi
Pei ua e a’e i se atumauga
Vali fo’i lou ulu ne’i iloa ua e matua
Ae ua galo ia te oe le amataga
Na ou alu atu ai o e sulu i atigi taga
E tasi le ie lavalava e sulu i le vai le aso atoa
A’o lenei ua e amuamu mai ia ita

[Tali]
O aso le mativa na
O aso le mativa na
Afai na ta masani ai
O aso le mativa na

Alu la ia pea oe ma faifai pea nai ou tama
Ae ou alu fo’i ma tatalo ia e manuia
Tusa pe i’u i fea
Ou te inu pea i nei mea tiga
Ae le liua ai le alofa
Ae ua galo ia te oe le amataga
Na ou alu atu ai o e sulu i atigi taga
E tasi le ie lavalava e sulu i le vai le aso atoa
A’o lenei ua amuamu mai ia ita

[Tali]
O aso le mativa na
O aso le mativa na
Afai na ta masani ai
O aso le mativa na
