KI TE FAKAOLATIA (To the rescue)
Lyrics - Opetaia Foa'i, Music - Opetaia Foa'i/Malcolm Smith

E lahi lele mea
Lea mai mo tatou e
Kafai tauhi ietahi lelei
Fai he mea mautinoa ola
Mautinoa to latou ola

Ki te Fakaolatia
Malosi manu e manu e

Fehoahoani malosi
E he nako ki tatou lava
E kiteagia hove ka galo
E lahi mea lea mai mo tatou
Tuha lava he maua tupe ki tatou

Kafai ia tagata ola
Kua tauau e fakaumatia
Kua tatau foki ona iei
He tino e hau fakaola tatou uma
Tagata e hau fakaola tatou uma

Ki te Fakaolatia
Malosi manu e manu e

It says a lot about us
when we care enough
about other species to do something
to ensure their survival
even when they don't contribute
monetarily to our pockets

To the rescue
Power to life

It says a lot about ourselves
when we care enough that
there is enough space in the world
for them too
preventing their extinction
taking responsibility for them
for changing their environment
If mankind was on his way out
it would also be worthwhile
for someone to come to our rescue

To the rescue
Power to life
