(Performed in this video by Marina Davis.) True love is not a fairy tale. It’s a difficult thing that takes a lifetime of work, so choose your partner carefully. Wise words.

O le Alofa o se mea faigata
ua e nofo ma e faauiga
alofa o se tamaitai i se tama
o le alofa o fanau i matua

le alofa e le o na’o si tausala
a’e alofa i lou olaga atoa
alofa e le o na’o au tala
e faatino ona i ai mea o se aoga

Tali: Vaai sau paaga e te lua sisiva
tau sa’o iai o oe fai le to’alua
a uosi aua le fusia lau paaga
na lena o le au le fai aiga

Tali: Vaai sau paaga e te lua sisiva
tau sa’o iai o oe fai le to’alua
a uosi aua le fusia lau paaga
na lena o le au le fai aiga

atua utagia mai la’u tala
uso pele ma aiga uma o samoa
o le alofa, o lau na fautuaga
ae pule oe i lau filifiliga

Tali: Vaai sau paaga e te lua sisiva
tau sa’o iai o oe fai le to’alua
a uosi aua le fusia lau paaga
na lena o le au le fai aiga

e pule oe i lau filifiliga

pule oe i lau filifiliga


from the album Best of Pele Pu’efua, submitted by Maosi
