E Iai Aso Fiafia Ai

E iai aso e fiafia ai

O aso foi e tagi ai
O se sa pele i le loto
ma ua mou i la’u va’ai

fa’apei o auma o le sami
e fa’afua ai le fati
anusa fo’i na alofa e te ta’u mai i aso ta’itasi
anusa fo’i na alofa e te ta’u mai i aso ta’itasi

o le amataga a le mafutaga
sa taumateina e tagata
le aso o taunuuga pe tini pe tafea i le vasa
a o lea ua le taulau ua tuuaina fua ita
tau lava ia manuia o oe ma sou aiga
tau lava ia manuia o oe ma sou aiga

Ua ponatia i vao, ae liaina i le ala
mea sa ta’ua natia ua lafo ia ita le leaga
pei a lava o si uga tau si’i ae tigaina le atigi
ua lava ia lea la’u uo ia manatua ita i sau miti
ua lava ia lea la’u uo ia manatua ita i sau miti

Ua ponatia i vao, Ae lia’ina i le ala,
Mea sa ta’ua natia, Ua lafo ia ita le leaga.
E a lava si uga e tausili, Ae tigaina ai le atigi,
Ua lava ia lea la’u uo, ia e manatua ita i sau miti
Ua lava ia lea la’u uo, ia e manatua ita i sau miti

    I’m Japanese but I have a Samoan friend who sings this song all the time, and I do have a copy of it. No offense but most of your words are not right. I can send you the right ones if you don’t mind. My friend’s gotta a beautiful voice and she sings this song beautifully. I love when she does. U know what, here are the words:

    E iai aso e fiafia ai, O aso fo’i e tagi ai,
    O le sa pele i le loto, ae ua mou i la’u va’ai.
    E fa’apei o auma o le sami, e fa’afua ae le fati,
    Aunasa fo’i na alofa, e te ta’u mai i aso ta’itasi.x2

    O le amataga o le mafutaga, Sa tau mateina e tagata,
    Po’o le a sona taunu’uga, Pe tini pe tafea i le vasa.
    A’o lea ua le taulau, ua tu’ua’ina fua ita,
    Tau lava ia manuia, O oe ma sou aiga.x2

    Ua ponatia i vao, Ae lia’ina i le ala,
    Mea sa ta’ua natia, Ua lafo ia ita le leaga.
    E a lava si uga e tau si’i, Ae tigaina ai le atigi,
    Ua lava ia lea la’u uo, ia e manatua ita i sau miti.x2

    Thank you…Enjoy it…

    Correction for the first word on the last line of the first verse,” Anusa instead of Aunasa”.”tausili instead of tau sii”.Everything else looks good.
