O Oe o La’u Uo Moni

You are my true friend…pray that we are always together in this life. 

(Five Stars version)

O oe o la’u uo moni
E le galo oe i le agaga
Fia fa’atasi pea
ma oe i lenei olaga
E manatua ai oe
i ou foliga ata’ata
laumata fiafia,
amio tausa’afia

O la ta mafutaga
ua ou le iloaina lava
le mafua’aga
ala ai o lenei mala
Se mea a faigata
o lo’u nei fiafia
ai ui ina liua
pe o le vai o Sina

Fa’ali maia funa o sou manatu
Pe e te alofa moni ia te a’u
E faigofie ona fa’apu’upu’u
pe afai ua e musu
x2

Fetu e o lagi,
figota o le sami
se’i ta’umaia se tasi,
po’o fea ea la’u honey
O oe o la’u pele ea
o la’u manamea e toatasi
Lenei ua mou atu
pe aunoa ma Satani

Sau ia oe la’u Dear
O ea sa ou filifilia
e moni ai le upu tusia:
Pupula le gata ae fasia
E ui ina ou lagona
lagona ina le mafatia
a e tu’u pea ia
ia fuga lou faitalia

Fa’ali maia fuga o sou manatu
pe e te alofa moni ia te a’u
E faigofie ona fa’apu’upu’u
pe afai ua e musu

Tofa soifua la’u pele lo’u au
Mo’omo’oga ua le tau lau
Ua motusia talu le tuinanau
fia fa’atasi e fa’avavau
x2
