Sa ou savali, i le ala

Traditional | 6 comments

{ First Verse }

Sa ou savali, i le ala
Manatua le teine tausala
Loimata e maligi
Fia va’ai ia oe le suiti

{ CHORUS }

Ae molimau fetu o le lagi
Dear ea pe na ta feoa’i
I nei mau tala ua pisa
A o ai na u’ua o ta lima

O ai ea, ua mama
I le lalolagi o agasala
E filo ai
O Satani le fa’aselega

{ Second Verse }

O ta evaga, pu’upu’u
Ae tele ai fua tala a le atunu’u
I le lotovale
Ma le matau’a ae tele ai upu

{ Third Verse – submitted by Bunny }

COME BACK TO ME
I WANT TO HEAR SE UPU
E PA’U MAI I LOU FOFOGA
E LE GALO OE I O’U MAFAUFAUGA.

    There’s another verse to this song we use to sing back in the late 50s

    Come back (come back) to me (to me)
    I want to hear i se upu e pau mai i lou fofoga
    i le’i galo io’u mafaufauga

    (the last sentence I’m not sure sure of)

    [Chorus]
