TE KAIGA (The family)
Lyrics & Muaic - Opetaia Foa'i

te mea pito taua
mo te kaiga
ko te hauniga o tamaiti
i mea o te olaga
fakapelepele ma te haoloto

fakamalohi te kaiga
puipuiga o te kaiga
tapenapena mo te olaga
hololelei mea kaiga

fakapelepele ki tamaiti
fakalalahi te aloha
fakamatala ki tamaiti
akoako ke poto ai

te mea pito taua
i te fanauga
mea moni talamoni fakahino lelei
na matua
fakapepepepe fia lele te manu

fakamalohi te kaiga - tauhiga
puipuiga o te kaiga - fanauga
tapenapena mo te olaga - tauhiga
hololelei mea kaiga - te aloha

lumanaki o tamaiti
fakahino ma tauhi ai
pukupuku na taimi
na taimi na tuku mai

the most valuable thing
to a family
is preparing the children
ready to face the world
it takes a lot of care
to be free and confident

keep the family strong
protect family values
in preparing for their future
keep it in good order

treasure the young
they need lots of love
explain to the young
teach so they understand

the most valuable thing
to the children
is the truth, telling the truth
and showing by example
by the parents
they‘re just hovering
before they fly

the future of our young
show you care for them
it’s a very short time
we have with them
this time we are given
