Sini o lou olaga

Anivas, Nifoloa | 3 comments

You are the most important thing (sini) in my life, number one in my heart, you’re like a ray of sunshine…

La’u mafaufau mea sa ta faia, lou au
A o lenei ua le taulau
Talu lou tuinanau

Ao fea foí o le maa’a o lou loto e
Se manu e taunuu ta faamoemoe

{ CHORUS }

O oe lava o le sini o lou olaga
Sulusulu o le la
O ou foliga
O oe lava o le sini o lou olaga
Tu mau pe a mo oe alofaaga
Mo oe lava

Se a ea le pogai
Ua lae ona e le faimai
Ae tuu ia lou faitalia
O oe lava ma au filifiliga

Ae tuuia ua uma foí sou manatu
ou te teu pea oe i si ou fatu

Ae ui lea ua uma foi sou manatu
ou te teu pea oe i si ou fatu

VERSE ONE:
A ou mafaufau

Talu lou tuinanau
Ao fea foi ole maa’a o lou lotoe
Se manu e taunuu ta faamoemoe..yeaah

O’oe lava ole sili o lo’u olaga
Susulu ole la i ou foliga
O oe lava ole sili o lo’u olaga
E tumau pea mo oe alofaaga
O oe lava

VERSE TWO:
Aisea ea le pogai

Oute teu pea oe isi o’u fatu

CHORUS:
O’oe lava ole sili o lo’u olaga
