O lota sa’olotoga

Samoa, tula’i, ia agiagia lau fu’a, lou pale lea.

  1. I prefer the original version of the anthem before some old Christian faife’au decided to change it by publishing different words in the Hymn book.

    The part:
    Vaai i na fetu o loo ua agiagia ai
    Le faailoga lea o Iesu na maliu ai mo Samoa Oi!

    In the original version it used to be:
    Va’ai i na fetu o lo’o ua agiagia ai
    Le fa’ailoga lea o Samoa ua mafai ona tautai

    I loathe the new version.

  2. lol I agree with u on one side that they change the lyrics, well that one line, God already is in the anthem, but maybe they just wanted to empphasize it even more lol

    LE ATUA UA FAAVAE AI SAMOA CHOOOOOHOOOOO

    I am still liking the new pese but i was keep saying the old pese’s words.

  5. Just wondering where can you get Music Sheet for all the Samoan Songs;
    just because WE SAMOANS need it. To play it where ever we go.
    If so; if you know can you inbox me at FoBii_LaVii@hotmail.com
    it would be really appreciated to the Chief of our family. Savea.
    Thank you.

  6. This is my jam, My second jam is Pusi nofo dame mai I fegot how to spell the song and my mom use to sing that to me when I was a little girl and she always brings the falla anyway I’m proud to be samoandas and this song respondents our blood and our family

  7. Original lea: Other lyrics are the same except for:

    Le faailoga lea o Samoa ua mafai ona tautai….
    Aua e te fefe e le toe avea lou pale….

    The change came around 1974-75 to:
    Le faailoga lea o Iesu na maliu mo i tatou ..
    Aua e te fefe o le Atua lo ta faavae…

    The govt wanted a change to emphasize Christianity in Samoan life.

What are your thoughts...?
