Baby nofo maia

Mr. Tee | 28 comments

She’s just broke the news to him – she’s leaving. He’s begging her to stay. Whatever the problem is, he wants to fix it…

1st VERSE
Lou lalelei, suga nai ou mo’omo’oga
Na’e tali mai o lou alofa e le uma
Ae sa’o oe sa e nofo ma lou pologa
Lenei ua e ta’u mai o le a e sola

Chorus
Baby nofo mai leai se upu sa ou avatu
E fai ma lave o nai o’u manatu
Avea a’u ma vai, e fa’amalu i lou fatu
Ae te le lagona mai lo’u alofa lenei dear mo oe
Ua na o oe lo’u au i lo’u loto e

Verse TWO
Ae ui i lea ou te onosa’i pea
E iai se aso ua taunu’u lo’u mana’o
A manatua e le galo oe e le uma
ia e iloa e manatua pea ou foliga

(Chorus)

Verse THREE
Ae pau o lea ia e iloa lo’u naunau
e moni e te alu ae le mafai lo’u alofa mo oe lo’u au
Nofo mai ma se’i e ta’u mai, se mea ou te fai
ua e fa’agalo ai
Oh baby ta’u mai

(Chorus)

    The song is great…I just add some changes on the lyrics cause its either the word are mispelled or is missing.

    The first line of the chorus is kinda wrong. Instead of MANATU — it should be AVATU.

    c’est trop dommage ou bien j’ai mal compris ou réellement je n’en trouve pas la traduction en français. Cette chanson est certes magnifique mais je n’en comprend pas le sens, peut-on avoir la traduction en français plutôt que la traduction des commentaires des internautes, je vous remercie infiniment.
