Story

This song is about a man who really loves his fish (Ika). He has had a sign that today is an excellent day for fishing. Lying in the sun, he is daydreaming of the catch, how he will cook it and how he will eat it. His mouth is watering as he can almost smell the aroma and taste the succulent 'Ika'.

IKA IKA (Fish fish)
Lyrics & Music - Opetaia Foa'i

Ika ika
Ika ote moana

Fano atu ki te po
Kua fana tu te aso tenei
Kikila i kaumana i luga
I luga i te lagi

Fano atu ki te po
Ko te lamasasave tenei
Uamalau uaua
Toso toso tukuvaka

Tu ai au ki luga e siva
E siva fiafia faka gali gali
Tamilomilo faka fuli fuli

Sasala te manogi
Ma te monamona
