Samoa Matalasi

One of our deepest, most endearing tributes to the beauty that is Samoa, this song is almost a prayer of gratitude and love for our islands.

La’u Samoa, e matalasi
Ua si’osi’omia e le sami
Atu mauga lanu lau ‘ava
Feoa’i fi afi a o ou tagata


La’u Samoa la’u Samoa ea
Le Atua o lou fa’avae e moni lea
Le Ao o lou Malo tali’ilagi
Samoa ea i Malo aufa’atasi

Tu lata oe i le ekueta
E mafanafana fo’i ele vevela
So’o se mea aua le popole
E mamulu mai ile fa’amolemole

Malietoa ua Malotau
O nai upu fa’alae’iau
Sema ane sota taeao
Samoa lo ta va’a ia sao

    1. La’u Samoa, e matalasi….My beautiful Samoa
      Ua si’osi’omia e le sami…Surrounded by the ocean
      Atu mauga lanu lau ‘ava….Mountains purest green
      Feoa’i fi afi a o ou tagata…Natives live happy and free

      { CHORUS }

      La’u Samoa la’u Samoa ea….My Samoa my Samoa
      Le Atua o lou fa’avae e moni lea…God is your true foundation
      Le Ao o lou Malo tali’ilagi…The Head of your Kingdom from heaven
      Samoa ea i Malo aufa’atasi….Samoa is in the United Nations

      Tu lata oe i le ekueta…. Located near the equator
      E mafanafana fo’i ele vevela…Warm but not so hot
      So’o se mea aua le popole….In everything do not worry
      E mamulu mai ile fa’amolemole…You’ll get them with please and pardon

      Malietoa ua Malotau…Sweet Courage brave in war
      O nai upu fa’alae’iau…Empowering words to encourage
      Sema ane sota taeao….Device for our new dawn day
      Samoa lo ta va’a ia sao….Samoa steers our ship through safe

  7. Hey Geek you are most welcome. could’ve done better but when one ask for a translation, then it is usually do it right there and then. LOL

    Anyways I think there could be some people or perhaps some kids who goes on google and ruined that helpful function for others. never know..

What are your thoughts...?
