Faanoa e lou loto

Traditional | 2 comments

Fa’anoa e lo’u loto, lo’u tino e ua vaivai
i au feleni e tele ua le masino i la’u va’ai
Si a’u masalo e ma la’u mate o loo ua fai
Lo’u alofa atu a e le manatu mai

Ae sauia oe la’u pele, pele
Pei ua ou nofo i se nu’u ese
O ita ua le loto fa’alemasani
ina ua ta le au feiloa’i

O le lalolagi o mala, e leai se, e le agasala
Ai ona ua maua lo tatou nei soifuaga
A i ai o ni ou sese, Dear, ia fa’apea goto e i moana *
E le tauanauina sou alofa, le tausala
