Oi Lau Pele Ea

Five Stars, Punialavaa | 5 comments

Oi la’u pele ea
ou te ta’utino atu
Ma le o’otia tele
o nai o’u manatu

I lenei feagaiga
Mafana ona faiga
Ua le taulau
Talu le tuinanau

Leaga suga oe
i lou le fai sa’o mai
Ua sili se tasi
i lau va’ai

Le ele’ele oe fuga
e le malie i timuga
Le lamepa na pupula
mai le tumutumu mauga

Alo ia lau foe
Tofaina oe
Ua ou misia lava oe
i lo’u fa’amoemoe

A ou mafaufau
i aso ua ma’imau
i lo’u fa’amaoni
tasi ita e manogi

Ua ta mao matanana
ua na’o ita lava
Musu e ulagia
ta te le taulia
