A song about the last dance of a celebratory Samoan gathering – le taualuga – performed by a taupou. 

O le taualuga o le a fa’ai’u mea uma

Olioli malie se’ese’e mai, ua matagofie
Fa’avai lou tino, tasi ou taga fo’i e manino
Ia faatamaalii, ua na’o oe lava e sili

Polenesia uma, ou te tautino atu, e sili o le siva Samoa
Afai la e te fia talitonu, sau ia se’i e maimoa
O si ona faiga e fesuisuia’i e le tumau i se mea e tasi
e le gata ile se’e, tino ao faamane’ene’e

O le sole na a tagata lautele
So’o se tasi e siva e tutusa uma tama ma teine
Siva ma le ataata ata, ole aso ua maualuga
Faaali lou fia fia i si ou siva Samoa

Polenesia uma, ou te tautino atu, e sili o le siva Samoa
Afai la e te fia talitonu, sau ia se’i e maimoa
O si ona faiga e fesuisuia’i e le tumau i se mea e tasi
e le gata ile se’e, tino ao faamane’ene’e

(Ou te le tala ole, Punialava’a)

Ou te le tala ole
e silisili tama o le lole
E alaala po fai sau sofesofe
ma tunu fa’avave sau kofe
Aua lou moa ne’i molemole
tamo’e faavave ma le ofe
E seu mai sega tala ma se safole
e tali ai o lo’u popole

Tago maia fusi atu a’u
ma fa’amafanafana lo’u fatu
Na ou tago atu lea opo mai oe
ma popo faamoemoe

Tago maia fusi atu a’u
ma fa’amafanafana lo’u fatu
Na ou tago atu lea opo mai oe
ma popo faamoemoe

E seu mai sega tala ma se safole
e tali ai o lo’u popole

Tago maia fusi atu a’u
ma fa’amafanafana lo’u fatu
Na ou tago atu lea opo mai oe
ma popo faamoemoe

    Is there anyway we can get lyrics for the song: “Do it, Do it”? That’s another one of my favorites by Marina/Pacific Soul 🙂

    Sara-Jane from Pacific Soul said (via her YouTube account) they never even recorded this song!!! This track is by Marina Davis from her solo debut album which featured collabs with Jamoa Jam – she has a VERY identifiable voice! beautiful!
