Faafofoga Maia Samoa

Penina o Tiafau | 2 comments

This song of praise is for Mulinu’u, a small, beautiful town in Upolu, where the island’s Parliament Building is located and our official radio station, too.

Fa’afofoga maia Samoa

a e se’i faiatu lo’u tala
tala i si o’u nu’u ua sili lona manaia

O Tiafau, o le malae fono
Itu e fa o Samoa
o lo’o pesepese ai tamaiti o le penina

E si o’u nu’u e sili le lalelei
Ua ese fo’i ona uiga i ona po nei
Se ou fia fa’aeaina oe
ua ala ai ou fa’apenei
E Mulinu’u e, fai lea ma o’u sei

A e savali ane i le auala
ma e va’ai lea i ou autaufa
le ofisa lena fa’amasinoga o fanua ma suafa

O lo’o i ai ma le 2AP
Si ou fofoga Samoa
Le ofisa o fetu e iloa ai le tau o Samoa

E si o’u nu’u e sili le lalelei
Ua ese fo’i ona uiga i ona po nei
Se ou fia fa’aeaina oe
Ua lai lou fa’apenei
E Mulinu’u e fai lea ma o’u sei

E si o’u nu’u e sili le lalelei
Ua ese fo’i ona uiga i ona po nei
Se ou fia fa’aeaina oe
ua ala ai ou fa’apenei
E Mulinu’u e, fai lea ma o’u sei

      I’m looking for the lyrics for a song posted on youtube by Alofaotunoaomatua called Faafofoga Samoa. There were several comments made but majority is in Samoan. I’m Samoan, but can’t read and speak very weak Samoan (how pathetic is that?….shameful). It’s sung really slow, but it’s very alluring and different from other renditions of this same song. Please post to my email listed below. Thank you!
