Samoa matalasi

One of our deepest, most endearing tributes to the beauty that is Samoa, this song is almost a prayer of gratitude and love for our islands.

La’u Samoa, e matalasi
Ua si’osi’omia e le sami
Atu mauga lanu lau ‘ava
Feoa’i fi afi a o ou tagata

{ CHORUS }

La’u Samoa la’u Samoa ea
Le Atua o lou fa’avae e moni lea
Le Ao o lou Malo tali’ilagi
Samoa ea i Malo aufa’atasi

Tu lata oe i le ekueta
E mafanafana fo’i ele vevela
So’o se mea aua le popole
E mamulu mai ile fa’amolemole

Malietoa ua Malotau
O nai upu fa’alae’iau
Sema ane sota taeao
Samoa lo ta va’a ia sao

      La’u Samoa, e matalasi….My beautiful Samoa
      Ua si’osi’omia e le sami…Surrounded by the ocean
      Atu mauga lanu lau ‘ava….Mountains purest green
      Feoa’i fi afi a o ou tagata…Natives live happy and free

      { CHORUS }

      La’u Samoa la’u Samoa ea….My Samoa my Samoa
      Le Atua o lou fa’avae e moni lea…God is your true foundation
      Le Ao o lou Malo tali’ilagi…The Head of your Kingdom from heaven
      Samoa ea i Malo aufa’atasi….Samoa is in the United Nations

      Tu lata oe i le ekueta…. Located near the equator
      E mafanafana fo’i ele vevela…Warm but not so hot
      So’o se mea aua le popole….In everything do not worry
      E mamulu mai ile fa’amolemole…You’ll get them with please and pardon

      Malietoa ua Malotau…Sweet Courage brave in war
      O nai upu fa’alae’iau…Empowering words to encourage
      Sema ane sota taeao….Device for our new dawn day
      Samoa lo ta va’a ia sao….Samoa steers our ship through safe
