(Malaesaili Saga version)

Na e Ioe ia te a’u anapo
O lou alofa e le fa’agalo
Pele ea ita o le a fano
O nei ua amata ai le uo

Mau lo’u loto i vaavaai atu
Ai ua e fa’agalo mai a’u
Lalelei niu sila i la’u va’ai
Tama Samoa ua fa’agalo mai

Na ou lauina o lau tusi na lafo mai
O upu lava ou te loto vaivai ai
O le masaniga ua faamutaina
Ai o le faapogai o lo’u aiga

Gau lo’u loto i va’ava’ai atu
Ae ua e fa’agalo mai a’u
Lalelei Niu Sila i la’u va’ai
Tama Samoa ua fa’agalo mai

Ae ui lea ua uma atu o’u manaoga
Tauina ia manuia o lo’u ola
Le ula ua motusia ina lea soa
Le lupe ua lele atu i aotearoa

Gau lo’u loto i va’ava’ai atu
Ai ua e fa’agalo mai a’u
Lalelei Niu Sila i lau va’ai
Tama Samoa ua fa’agalo mai

    the song was written and performed by Misiluki Sua of Papase’ea not Malaesaili Saga. most of the words are wrong as well.

    Thanks for your comment John. Malaesaili Saga obviously has a version of this song with words that are slightly different. It happens a lot in Samoan music. I’ll add Misiluki’s name to the credit, though. It’s good to know who wrote the song.

    Ia manuia.
