La’u lupe ua lele

Traditional | 0 comments

Song of a lost love

La’u lupe ua lele, lele i le vao mao
Talofa e i la’u pele, la’u pele ua leiloa

Ta’agae o teine o loo ua gasolo mai
Ou mata e tilotilo e te le o sau ai

Ua to’ulu’ulu mai
o le sau mai Heremoni e
Ua to’ulu le alofa
i luga o Kipeona

Oi oi oi e i lenei malae
O le oti fa’afuase’i i le lalolagi e

La’u fua rosa e la’u fua veloveta e
La’u fua ua uimoto ae le’i matala e
