Tausama’aga

Le La Oso Band | 2 comments

Ta mai le 12pm gagau mai lou ulu
e te aluga i o’u vae
pe e te vaili utu
te le manao i se taumusumusu
aua e te leo tele ma le toea’ina
ne’i toe ala mai
ma le tele o le pisa
ne’i toe ala mai
ma le tele o le pisa

O le lo’omatua ua tagi tautala
po’o ai o lea rasta
ua amata loa
ona su’e ole gafa
pe aiga pe leai
aami loa lau mama se’i au mai
se’i fai o sana u’u
ma toe tui ese a
se’i fai o sana u’u
ma toe tui ese a

O mea la nei o le tagata e su’e mo le taumfataga
e ta’i lua talo
sefulu valu o pua’a
moa e lima ma ni pato se ono
nai ou i’a e sefulu ma se ipu salaki
o se ulo sapasui
ma se povi e tasi
o se ulo sapasui
ma se povi e tasi

O mea laia e tagata e ave mo le tausamaaga
o se va’akarasini, o se sefetioata
atoa ma ni fala nini’i
e ave ma si teine i lona aiga
o se pusa lavalava se ta’avale ti’oata
o se pusa lavalava se ta’avale ti’oata

Aue o ta mo’omo’oga ua uma upu pe a taunu’u
o oe fo’i e pule le ki o la’u pusa tupe
o oe fo’i e pule le ki o la’u pusa tupe…

    ta mai le 12pm lau mai lou ulu
    e te aluga i lo’u vae pe ete vaiiliutu
    te le manao ise taumusumusu
    aua e te leo tele ma le toeaina
    nei toe ala mai
    ma le tele o le pisa

    o le lo’omatua ua tagi tautala
    po’o ai lea tama
    ua amata loa ona su’e o le gafa
