TUI MOANA (King of the Sea)
Lyrics & Music - Opetaia Foa'i

Te gali o te tai

Fakateletele iluga o te moana

Te gigila o te moana
heheke atu au i toku vaka
te Matagi e malu

Te Manino o te Moana
Te Malino o te Moana

Tatou fenua ko tenei
te atea a tatou kaiga
tatou nuku ko tenei
aganuku a tatou kaiga

The rough rumble of the sea
This beautiful sea
Excites me

I’m sailing across the ocean
On the shining ocean
My canoe is flying across it
Carried by these high winds

Such a clear ocean
Such a smooth ocean

This is our realm
This kingdom belongs to us
The traditions the culture
Belongs to us
