Mana’ona’o Fa’aele’ele Naumati

This lyricist is thinking about the time before she left him. Could he have stopped her from going? Can he get her back?

(Five Stars version)

Mana’ona’o fa’a’eleele lupe naumati
Ina ia e fo’i mai se’i o’u toe tepa tasi
Se’i fesili atu po’o tumau pea lau tali
A e ua galo mai, aue e, ta maasiasi

E le galo lava nai a ta tu’uga tala
Ina ua latalata o na e alu malaga
E tumau pea lau fa’atuatuaga
O le a le galo mai ita i lo’u agaga

Losa ua silisili oe i le sasala
O lou manogi e tumau pea, e le gata
Na ou le taua nei manumanu le matala
A nei e lia’i e seisi ma nai o na aa

Pisa lo’u mafaufau, e tau puapua
Lau amio pe a talanoa na’o taua
Faufautua i taimi o evaevaga
Manatu ia tatau fai malamalama

Emo’emo solo mai uila i tafalagi
Fa’amalamalama uma ai o le lalolagi
Po’o sulugia oe fuga o la’u kapani
A’o e sa’ili’ili atu mo se lumana’i

Nofonofo pea ita ma le le mautonu
Leai o se tali, oka oka se fa’aletonu
Fea fo’i galo i mata maligi fa’avai
Se’e dear ita i le malu na faapua mai

Ioe ita lo’u mo’omo’oga ese le faigata
Fa’atuatua ita te’i ua maoaluma
A e sau ia, tofa ia manuia
E le fa’agalo ina oe la’u paaga

Ioe ita lo’u mo’omo’oga ese le faigata
Faatuatua ita te’i ua maoaluma
A e sau ia, tofa ia manuia
E le fa’agalo ina oe la’u pa’aga

  1. One of my favorite song until they scrambled the words of the very first line of the song for whatever reason that made it no sense. I was hoping to find the original one.

    Starts with. Mana’ona’o fa’alupe ‘ele’ele naumati.
