Oka oka la’u hani

(Five Stars performs in this clip.) My honey is number one, like Hellaby’s corned beef. Better than biscuits from Fiji. Better than tomatoes and peas, even. Ahhh, love.

Oka Oka la’u Hani
o La’u hani faasilisili
ou te faatusaina i se apa helapi
poo se pisupo sini
poo se masikeke mai fiti
poo sina sapasui
o ni tamato ma ni pi

afai lava ua tonu
ua tonu lou finagalo
ta faaipoipo
avane i le malo
e leaga o le ta’atua
e tele ai o le tiapolo
pe fai sau pepe
o le pepe o le po

Dear dear tofa
o le a ta tete’a
e leai o se mamao
alaga i gauta
avanoa sau taimi
telefoni ane se itula
pe fai sau leta
avane i se motoka

  1. Such a beautiful song. Just need to correct some of the wording in the verses and fill in some of the verses that are missing lines. But solid job 🙂

  2. I love this song. My grandma use to sing it to us a lot while growing up. Agree to the comments above in regards to some missing parts. In addition to what they’ve said, the last word (tautua) on the the fifth line of the second verse should’ve been ta’atua instead of tautua. Also, immediately after that line the word “fefe” comes up. It should’ve been pepe instead of fefe. Anyhow good job and keep up the good work.

What are your thoughts...?
