Sa Ou Nofo ma Ou Va’ava’ai i Fetu o le Lagi

Penina o Tiafau | 2 comments

As I sit and gaze at the stars and think being together with you my darling

Sa ou nofo va’ava’ai i fetu ole lagi
Mo’omo’oga e o lo’u agaga ia ta faatasi
Ma oe la’u pele, filifilia i lo’u mafaufau
le ta faatasi ma oe, lo’u au, i ni aso o sau

La’u pele ‘ea ua e iloaina oe le faigata
O le fia vaai, fia tepa i lau afioga
E faapea ota mo’omo’oga i ou foliga
E pei o le susulu mai o le masina ua tu faasipa

Lata pele ea se’ia logo maia faatutuila
Se’i ou se’e atu i peau ua fatisisina
O lata pele e’a ta’u maia sau upu mo ita
Aua o a’u na totoma a’o oe dear na taliaina
(Music break then repeat this verse)
