Maligi ou Loimata

Anivas | 1 comment

Interesting song in the tune of Rose Royce’s “I wanna get next to You”, but it’s actually the Samoan version of and old classic by Johnny Nash, “Tears on my Pillow”.

Oute manatuaina
Le amataga o la ta mafutaga
Oute manatua pea i aso uma lava
O oe i o’u mafaufauga

Ia aua, aua ne’i e faagalo mai ita
Maligi o o’u loimata
Tigā lo’u agaga
O oe i o’u mafaufauga
Maligi o o’u loimata
Tigā lo’u agaga
O oe i o’u mafaufauga

O ou foliga
E pei ole susulu mai o le masina
O ou laugutu
E suamalie e pei ole uaina
Sau ia, se’i tu’u maia o lou lima
Maligi o o’u loimata
Tigā lo’u agaga
O oe i o’u mafaufauga
Maligi o o’u loimata
Tigā lo’u agaga
O oe i o’u mafaufauga

Lo’u alofa mo oe le uo pele
E le toe uma
Se’i fo’i mai
Lo tatou matai
O lea na fai mea uma
La’u pele
Ta fetaui i ni aso oi luma
Maligi o o’u loimata
Tigā lo’u agaga
O oe i o’u mafaufauga
Maligi o o’u loimata
Tigā lo’u agaga
O oe i o’u mafaufauga
Tears on pillow,
Pain in my heart
And you’re on my mind
Maligi o o’u loimata
Tigā lo’u agaga
O oe i o’u mafaufauga
