Manu Samoa Siva Tau

Traditional | 20 comments

Samoa’s rugby team, le Manu Samoa, performs this battle dance at the beginning of every game

Soso mai i totonu i totonu Soso Mai
Soso mai i totonu i totonu Soso Mai

Le manu Samoa lenei ua ou sau
leai se isi manu o le atulaulau
ua ou sau nei ma le mea atoa
o lo’u malosi ua atoatoa
ia e faatafa ma e soso ese
leaga o lenei manu e uiga ese
Le manu Samoa
Le manu Samoa
Le Manua Samoa e o mai i samoa
Manu!

      Manu means Beast or Bird, but the Manus (Manu Samoa) are named in honour of a famous samoan warrior.

    there is an error in the lyrics
    the first two lines in the Manu Samoa Siva Tau are not ” Soso mai i totonu i totonu soso mai”, instead they are “Le Manu Samoa e ia malu ona fai o le faiva”
