Sau sau ia la’u dear

Love song asking her to come and rejoice with him on the day before they are to be married.

Sau sau ia la’u dear, ta fa’afiafia
Taeao se aso ua sili
Darling ia oe ma nisi
Lo’u alofa, ua sili na’o oe
Tu’u maia lou lima, lo’u tama le aiga

Faafetai ile Atua, aso mo taua
Le alofa ua faigata
Fa’atasi pea ta’ua
Lo’u alofa, ua sili na’o oe
Tu’u maia lou lima, lo’u tama le aiga
(repeat this verse)

    1. We’re so bad at answering comments around here lol so sorry Mari…

      Sau means come. Sau ia is the same, but the added ‘ia’ emphasizes the request. So, sau ia is like saying, ‘come already!’ lol.. The singer is just insisting that his beloved comes with him. In this song, it’s a more gentle insistance (not a command or anything lol), just to show his love how much he wants to be with her.

      You know how that goes 😉

What are your thoughts...?
