TUTUKI (Play the beat)
Lyrics and Music - Opetaia Foa'i

tuki tutuki
te mimita ko na fatele
tuki tutuki
na hiva taua
tuki tutuki
pokihi mo na fatele
tuki tutuki
na pehe ma na hiva

na hiva venei e
lahi te malie
fiafia tatou
te matagi te fafia
pe hui i he tahi
foki na tamaiti
ke mautinoa fiafia
kafai akoako atu

fai mai taga
fakamaualuga mai
mimita na pehe
na hiva

beat it play the beat
so proud of the fatele
beat it play the beat
for this important dance
beat it play the beat
for these songs and dances

dances like these
are so beautiful
they bring much pride
and joy to us all
we must be proud
when we pass it on to our children
so they are proud to pass it on too

do the dance moves
do them the best you can
so proud when we sing
so proud when we dance
