Lady Moana

Jerome Grey | 0 comments

A guy’s affair with a lady named Moana, sung in a kind of pigeon English

1. Well I remember long time ago in the island of Manono
I gave one diamond mama to a lady named Moana
Her hair black and curly, hanging down below her belly
She’s astoundingly beautiful
She says I’m the perfect lady

Chorus
Moana, Moana
The children are crying Moana
Don’t you aiaiaga to me, I don’t give a damn you see(don’t give a damn you see)

2. Moana come over here
Would you please marry me
She says, I thank you if you love to me
But I’m afraid of you
But I’ll speak to my daddy, my uncle and my mummy
Ma o’u sisters ma o’u brothers
Ia male makou aiga akoa uma lava

Chorus
Moana, Moana
The children are crying Moana
Don’t you aiaiaga to me, I don’t give a damn you see

3. One day we had a fight
My head she hit with a big falai
Ua ou makapogia
Moana faatali my dear
I woke up she was crying
Felt sorry for what she’d done
I never understood this woman
She’s crazy alright

Chorus
Moana, Moana
The children are crying Moana
Don’t you aiaiaga to me, I don’t give a damn you see

4. My Igilisi is not too big
But I know your konfiks
If you say no to me, I say no to you
I’m sowwie for my wrong
Faalelei le ta aiga
You bring me plenty money
To give the faalavelave

Chorus
Moana, Moana
The children are crying Moana
Don’t you aiaiaga to me, I don’t give a damn you see
(chorus x3)
