TAMATOA (Warrior)
Opetaia Foa'i Lyrics, Opetaia Foa'i & Malcolm Smith music

Te tagata ko Tavita
Hikihiki lava
Na Uiga mimita
O te Pasifika
Fakatu te tagata
I te lalolagi
Tete na fili
Paku foki ai
Ko ai la te igoa
Tua
Fakamalohi ai
Te Tatou tamatoa
Lagolago ki ei
Taku mai la te igoa
Tua
Ma talitonu mai
Ka maua e ia
Te tulaga hilia
O te Tamatoa
Tamatoa o te Pasifika
O te Tamatoa
Tamatoa o te Pasifika

This man called
Tavitia
Is proudly holding
Up the ways of
The Pacific
He stands Boldly
Taking on the world
His opponents they shake with dear
Just before they fall
What is his name
Tua
Let’s all get behind him
He’s our warrior
Tell me his name
Tua
Believe me when
I say
He will be
The champion of the world
This Warrior
Our warrior of
The pacific
This warrior
Our warrior of the Pacific
