La’u Lupe

Mr. Tee | 0 comments

A “lupe” is a pigeon. It’s also what we use to describe someone beloved, especially someone who has “flown” away.

O la’u lupe ua lele i le vao

Ma manu tafafao
Leai se upu e faimai mo a’u, yeah

Sa ou nofo ma va’ava’ai
Pe e te fo’i mai
O la’u lupe po’o fea o e i ai

Lo’u olo malie
Naunau lo’u loto
e le mafai ona galo
lo’u alofa nei mo oe, oh oh oh

{ CHORUS }

Faimai o fea o e i ai
Ua le mafai
Lo’u fia va’ai

Faimai o fea o e i ai
Ua le mafai
Lo’u fia va’ai

Tele i’a o le sami e so so
Ua na’o oe lou au
Tasi lava oe i lou fatu

Ua misia lou lalelei
Oe fai ma ou sei
La’u lupe ua nao a’u

{ CHORUS }

To the heights of Mt Vaea
My love will take you there
To the village of Solosolo
My life for you I’ll share
Me and You together
Forever love and care
Without you inna my dreams,
my babe my life will be nightmare

Inna de dance n cruise the music let them so crazy…
One thing bout this reggae nobody no feel lazy
Pick that funky beat and everyone dey amaze me
Mr. Tee, bend your mind, check it out

Lo’u olo malie
Naunau lo’u loto
e le mafai ona galo
lo’u alofa nei mo oe, oh oh oh

{ CHORUS till fade }
