This lonely guy is missing his love, and he’s feeling it in his body and soul.

(Richard Parker Version)

Nofo, Nofo Toatasi

mafaufau ia oe hani
o oe lava ua sili
ua leai ma se isi

Sau Ia, Se’i e fai mai
pe na o ita ea pe leai
ina ne’i o’o maualuga dear ea i o’u mafaufauga

Lo’u Tino! Ma lo’u Loto!
Ua Na o Oe!

My Darling Your the One! The Only One!
La’u Teine Samoa! Ua Sili Oe!

Maligi ai o’u loimata i aso uma…
La’u pele e o oe lava i o’u mafaufauga
lou leo malu, ta te fia fa’alogo
Lou Lalelei dear ea pei o se La Goto!

Lo’u Tino! Ma lo’u Loto!
Ua Na o Oe!

My Darling Your the One! The Only One!
La’u Teine Samoa! Ua Sili Oe!

Sau ia, Ta fa’atofa e le galo oe…
Se mea a faigata o le alofa
Pe ana e iloaina o’u mafaufauga
le alofa mo oe e pei o se Mauga…

Lo’u Tino! Ma lo’u Loto!
Ua Na o Oe!

My Darling Your the One! The Only One!
La’u Teine Samoa! Ua Sili Oe!

Lo’u Tino! Ma lo’u Loto!
Ua Na o Oe!

My Darling Your the One! The Only One!
La’u Teine Samoa! Ua Sili Oe!

    Can anyone advise where I can purchase Richard Parker CD that has Teine Samoa on it. Also whether he has a website?
    I live on the North Shore in Auckland. Your assistance would be much appreciated.

    Thank you in advance
