That one true Beauty from from Samoa

Le Lalelei O Samoa
Youre the Star for sure ua ou iloa
Ou te pese fa’amoemoe
I lo’u alofa fa’avalea ia oe
Nofo ita i lo’u aiga, ae le galo oe ou foliga
I love you truly my dear
Forever more o lo’u fiafia

Ta te musu e ta’u lou suafa
Ma le pisavale o tagata
Ae tu’u ita pea i lou agaga
Youre the Star of Samoana

Beautiful Red Hibiscus
Iv’e admired you right from the start
Beautiful red hibisicus
youre the flower of my heart

Everyday your fairer
Your the fairest flower that grows
Beautiful red hibiscus
Your the flower of my heart

Ta te musu e ta’u lou suafa
Mai le pisavale o tagata
Ae tu’u ita i lou agaga
Youre the star of Samoana

Le lalelei o Samoa
Youre the Star for sure ua ou iloa
Ta te pese fa’amoemoe i lo’u alofa fa’avalea ia oe
Nofo ita i lo’u aiga
Ae le galo oe i ou foliga
I love truly my dear
Forevermore o lo’u fiafia
