His conversation with his girlfriend over the phone who is unhappy with his family and all the rumours they’re spreading about her

(“Hello?”)

O ai lea saunoa fa’amolemole?)

Honey ea, ua fiu lou taumafai
sa sili ai pe a na ou le fanau mai
le anoanoa’i o leaga ua lafo mai
e lou aiga ia te a’u le pogai

Honey ea, ua fiu lou taumafai
(Teresa la’u pele, o le a le fa’alavelave ua tupu?)
sa sili ai pe a na ou le fanau mai
(Teresa, se ta’u mai po’o le a le fa’alavelave ua tupu)
le anoanoa’i o leaga ua lafo mai
e lou aiga ia te a’u le pogai
(…la’u pele, se ta’u mai poo ai ua na upu ese atu ia te oe?)

O lou tina ua ia saunoa mai
(Teresa, ua faiatu a lau tina ia te oe?)
Ua maimau oe ia te a’u, o le a ea le pogai?
(Leai Teresa, tutusa lava e le solomuli lou alofa ia te oe)
Aue lou fatu e, ua tuia ua tiga
e lou aiga, ae leai sau sala
(Teresa lau pele, ou te ofo ia te oe na faagalo ia te au)

Ua ou iloa e fai lou aiga
(Leai Teresa, ua leva na ma tetea a le fafine leaga le na)
Ua ou sese i lou nei le malamalama
(Suga, se aua te faapena, ou te alofa pea ia te oe)
Lou fa’amoemoega sa ou mafaufau i ai
ua leaga, ua masa’a le ipu vai

Ua ou iloa e fai lou aiga
(Leai Teresa, faiatu foi ua leva na pa le vaa a le fafine le na)
Ua ou sese i lou nei le malamalama
(Suga, se aua e te fa’apena. Ou te alofa lava ia te oe)
Lou fa’amoemoega sa ou mafaufau i ai
(Teresa lau pele)
ua leaga, ua masa’a le ipu vai
(Ou te fia … finagalo, la’u pele)

Le Ali’i e (ooh)
Le Ali’i e (ooh)
Pe i ai ea se tofi mo ita
Le Ali’i e (ooh)
Le Ali’i e (ooh)
Pe i ai seisi tofi mo ita

Ua o’ona lenei ipu
Ua ou inu pea
Ua uma oe ma au i luga o le telefoni
Ua uma oe ma au i luga o le telefoni

(Tofa Teresa)
