Tatala Le Ta Fa’amau

Girl wanting to break off engagement because of rumours

Ua ou mao aluma ia oe

Ua tauvalea lou igoa pele ao oe lava na e amioleaga
Baby tau mai tali mai poo ai ea ua e mafatia ai
Lota faamaoni ao a ia tala ua feavea’i mai
Ai o le au lotovale ua tatau na e masani ai
Sau ta talanoa ua le tasi se tagata tau ai lou igoa
Ma sei fai o se tonu pe toe iai sou avanoa
Tatala mai ia ou mafatiaga
Ua nao au lava ou te faamafanafana
Ua ou faalogo soo ina tala ua tiga ai o lou agaga
Ou te masalosalo ita nei e le tau ai lou manao
Ua ou mao aluma ia oe
Ua tauvalea lou igoa pele ao oe lava na e amioleaga
Ua tele aso o le mafutaga
Ua loma foi o le faaipoipoiga
Ao fea loimata ma upu o le alofa
Ua alai ona e faainu ita i le vai sili ona oona.
Ai ua gaoia suga o lou fatu
Ua alai ona e faaumiumi soo ma nai ou manatu
Faamagalo au Ou te tuuina atu oe e alu
Ua ou pologa ua ou lagona
Ete mata salamo mai ao oe sole ese lou le alofa
Ua uma lou onosai ua ou lelava tagi
Avatu au tupe lavalava toetoe a avatu male ola, o fua na o sou alofa

Ta malilie tatala le ta faamau
Avatu lau mama
Avatu lau filifili auro
O mea lelei sa e faia mo au
Ou te teu malu i le… taele o lou nei fatu
Ua e musu ua e agaleaga ua ita
Ou te le toe fia vaai i ou foliga
