Ta Te Le Tatatuli

Punialavaa | 7 comments

E pupuna mai le lagi lo’u loto ua lilita’i
e le tauafiafi ua o’o mai ma le tagi
lata ma’ema’e to’atasi i lo’u afeafe
fia iai i ou talaane ae ua ta’oto i le aulape
fia iai i ou talaane ae ua ta’oto i le aulape

Amuia se iole o fiafia sa molemole
e le mo se fala o le faapuna ma le mataoge
pese ma a’i ao aumaia le sau o le vaveao
le aso fou mai ia Iesu se’i aumai so’u filemu
le aso fou mai ia Iesu se’i aumai so’u filemu

E le solo alofa ua falute ai mea o’ona
le ma’i o mo’omo’oga na fa’asilitofo lo ta ola
ne’i tofitofau ae a’e ma le maumau
ta fia fai ma ou tapa’au pe a ta’oto le au peau
ta fia fai ma ou tapa’au pe a ta’oto le au peau

Ta te le tatatuli pe fafagu i la’u pele
faitalia oe pe fa’atelegese
se ua maligi tele e i’u lava ina masele
musu e le masina ina ne’i fano eleele
musu e le masina ina ne’i fano eleele

Ta te le tatatuli pe fafagu i la’u pele
faitalia oe pe fa’atelegese
se ua maligi tele e i’u lava ina masele
musu e le masina ina ne’i fano eleele
musu e le masina ina ne’i fano eleele

    E “pupula” mai le lagi lo’u loto ua “vilita’i”
    e le tauafiafi ua o’o mai ma le tagi
    lata ma’ema’e to’atasi i lo’u afeafe
    fia iai i ou talaane ae ua ta’oto i le aulape
    fia iai i ou talaane ae ua ta’oto i le aulape
