O le alofa lava i le manu e

Love is like a bird

O le alofa lava i le manu e
Falele, falele, falele
A ia ulu’ulu ma tasi e
O le futia ma le umele
Ta le tagitau me le fau malele
A e ou folau pea i le va’a tele
ia so’o Samoa ma ni atu-, ma ni atunu’u ese

Velo maia o lou lima e
Malifuga avele, tofaina la’u pele
O lea ta fa’amavae, ne’i galo le igoa e
Ou te manatua pea e
Ua sisi fa’avae loto lau fua e
Tofaina soifua e

Aue ta fefe!
Le afi la e ua mu
Mu mai i le la itu
Ta mata’u e! Le itu-o-tane
fai mai ua liupupu
Faipule o Salafai
Soia le fa’afifilemu
A e fai ni talosaga
i le mala ua tupu
A e aua, aua lava le fa’atalatu

Na o na ou fa’anoa
i le mala ua i Samoa
O le afi e pogai mai lalo
Savai’i o le a to
O mea fa’atofotofo
Po’o ua lata o na salamo, o o o o
Samoa loto malo

(Tausani mai manu e)

Fafati mai o galu fao ali’ao
ua gogolo uma figota o le la’au
Fa’atali timu le nu’u Savavau
ia magalo mai le sala a Tigilau
Lau afioga e le Kaisa
ia ola tama na fa’afolau

Ia la la la la la
Ia la la la la la
Oe le feleni e sauia ta o
se’i tautua i le malo

Ia la la la la la
Ia la la la la la
Oe le feleni e sauia ta o
se’i tautua i le malo

(O le fana ta’avili ua ote’ote mai)

O le fana ta’avili ua ‘ote’ote mai
Ua tula’i si Ali’i ma ua fai mai
Ia filemu, ia to’a le tai
tali i lagi so ta’ ai
Faitalia Peretania e

Aua le kovana e
Ua e fa’afiti
E te le iloaina
O se fanata’avili
A e molimau tamaiti
ma le afafine o Kilisi
O oe lava na e fa’apa e
le fanata’avili

O le na lava
o le na lava ua tofa
i le malae o Mulinu’u
o Tiafau o le Malae o Malo
Ina ia tu o le mata e
Samoa e, soia le tafa
Soia la’ia
Soia le fetu o ailau

A o nai ona fua
ma fai ma so’otaga
e alu atu le manogi
a e sau le sasala
O lo’o tusi lolomi le igoa
le lau moso’oi so’o ai Samoa
Sauia la’ia
ta o i le Tipaula
