LOGO TE PATE (Listen to the Pate)
Lyrics & Music - Opetaia Foa'i

Ke manatua
Faiga iena
te luelue
te malohi
ina hiva

Ke manatua
Faiga iena
te fiafia te malie
ina hiva

Hau la ke ta o
kuku mai to lima
Hau la ke ta o
hau ta hihiva
Hau la ke ta o
kuku mai to lima
Hau la ke ta o
ko koe taku pele e fofou ai au

Tamilomilo fakatamilomilo
e kua ninimo toku ulu
Tamilomilo fakatamilomilo
toe fai toe fai ke manino

Katakata mai
hihiva mai
fakalogo ki te pate aue
ma te luelue

Do you remember
when we did all that
the sway
the energy
expressed in the dance

Do you remember
when we did all that
the joy and sweetness
expressed in the dance

come on let's go
give me your hand
come on let's go
come let's dance
come on let's go
give me your hand
come on let's go
you are the only one that I wish for

Round and round spinning round
hey my head's getting dizzy
Round and round spinning round
do it again it'll soon clear

Smile my way
keep on dancing
listen to the pate
and keep on swaying
