Le Taualaga o Solomona

1st
le taualaga a solomona
e faatatau i le alofa
e le mafai e vai e tele ona tineia ese
o le uo i aso uma a ole uso i aso vale
na’o le samoa tua i le samoa faalavelave

chorus
ae faanoanoa ai o lou agaga
ae ita ua soo tutuila ua e lau ita
faimai o samoa i sisifo e mativa
ae galo ia oe o oe lava ua e faalumaina

2nd
faimai e tele aa o le tagata
nai loo aa o laau uma lava
ae se paga o le ipu vai lea ua masaa
ae ui i lea oute talia ma lou loto fiafia
pule oe se oute le amanaia

3rd
lota uso samoa sei tautuana si o ta igoa
vaai i mata e afelele e maimoa
le malosi mai i le atua
o le tama poto e fuafua
ae a leaga e tauvalea ai ou matua

4th
samoa ma si ona olaga na ose ieie e lavalava
e palapala foi mea e fai ai ana mea taumafa
leai ni mea ai tuuapa e susu le tina si ana tama
tolu masina fafaga loa i le mama
aise ua alai uso lo tau faaleaga mai
le tamai moa lale le ioio mai
aua nei e tau atu i tagata si ota olaga
manatua samoa o le penina o le vasa

    DIS SONG REMINDS ME OF MY FAMS IN SAMOA

  2. avatar Aoatua Le'Valasi Lee says:

    Having the ‘nz born’ tag, my parents did the obligatory trip back to the motherland, along with 6 kids in tow. While mum worked in pesega we were raised by maternal grandparents in mum’s ville of falelima.

    Childhood memories of running around the village care-free, gao le underwear and a smile. Tagging along with ‘Pa’ to the local school and sitting with him while the ‘ipu ti ole taeao’ was served, a humbling dish of rice & eleni, koko Samoa on the woven coconut-leaf tray. Pushing a home made ‘boat’ made out of the hard-stem of the coconut with a long stick. We would race those babies in the sand like it was the grand prix! Joining all the village kids down at the matafaga, jumping into the sea and learning how to swim at the same time (and some near-drownings too ;)! Going up to the family land to collect popo’s and koko pods. I felt so grown-up when Pa would make my very own ‘amo': 2 popo’s tied together and slung over both ends of a long stick which u would the carry on ur shoulders back to the village. Oh, taking an ‘aulama’ to the family next-door, asking to ‘se’i kuku mai le ka aulama faamolemole’, because we didn’t have any matches to light the cooking fire. E mu maka ile feula ole afi!
    So many cherished memories of the humbling life in Samoa. And this song pens the poverty but most importantly, to remember and follow the good teachings of our parents, our Samoan customs, tu ma aganu’u and the love for ur fellow countrymen
    poignant lyrics from our beloved Samoan artists who captured Life in Samoa through their music beautifully.
    Thank u Penina ole Tiafau, “Maria&Alapati”, rest in peace Alapati xxxx
