Lyrics & Music - Opetaia Foa'i 

Mama e

verse 1

mama e
nofo lelei i lou mafaufau
le mea pito taua
mama e aue
pito maualuga
lou alofa mo lou aiga

verse 2

o’u te manatua taimi
faitala ai taua
ataata ma le fiafia
mama e aue
a’oa’o mai auala
e fa’aoga i lo’u olaga

prech:

manatua ou foliga
ataata ma le fiafia

chorus:

tele tele amio fa’atigaina
tele tele alofa i fa’asa’oina

ese ese amio fa’afiuloto
tele tele alofa onosa’i uma

 

Mama e

verse 1

remains firmly in your mind
a thing most precious
mama e
a thing most valued
your love for your family

verse 2

i remember the times
we talked about things
the laughter and the joy
mama e
taught me many things
i now use in my life


prech

i recall your face
the laughter and the joy

chorus

many painful mistakes i made
much love you gave in correcting me

different ways i caused you stress
so much love and patience you gave me
