Mamalu o Samoa

Pacific Soul | 6 comments

A song commonly used for a Samoan dance to show the importance of our culture

Ua mamalu ma paia lenei aso

Fa’afetai ma fa’amalo, mua ia mua o
Avea ia lo’u leo e ‘aua’una atu ai
mo oe Samoa pe a e finagalo i ai

La la la o tofiga
ia u’u mau i ou lima
muagagana a le atunu’u
e mama e le tava e ona fulu

La la la o tofiga
ia u’u mau i ou lima
muagagana a le atunu’u
e mama e le tava e ona fulu

I le ava ma le fa’aaloalo
ua ou fa’atulou
a fai e sala se fati
fa’amagalo o i matou

Ia teu ita i si ou fatu
fa’amagalo ia te au
e iti’iti e
ma ua leva o ni manatu

La la la o tofiga
ia u’u mau i ou lima
muagagana a le atunu’u
e mama e le tava e ona fulu

La la la o tofiga
ia u’u mau i ou lima
muagagana a le atunu’u
e mama e le tava e ona fulu

La la la o tofiga
ia u’u mau i ou lima
muagagana a le atunu’u
e mama e le tava e ona fulu

La la la o tofiga
ia u’u mau i ou lima
muagagana a le atunu’u
e mama e le tava e ona fulu

muagagana a le atunu’u
e mama e le tava e ona fulu
