Malie Tanifa

Traditional | 2 comments

Malie, tanifa
Malie tanifa tautala futi i tua i pa
A i ai o se tautai ua na iloa se i’a fe’ai
Mua o

(alternate version:

Malie, tanifa
Malie tanifa soso atu tua i pa
A i ai se tautai ua na iloa se mea fe’ai
Mua o

Ua vavala mai, vavala mai ou foliga
Pei ua ou tepa i le fetu ma le masina
Ua latou fepulafi mai i le vanimonimo o le lagi
A’o ou nofonofo to’atasi ma ou fa’anoa ma le tagi

Pei o se fale teu i fugala’au
Ua fa’atumauina i lo’u nei mafaufau
Ua puaina le manogi o le sau a nei a le taulau
Tele fili o lo’o ua salalau, tau lepetia la’u fanau
