Lyrics – Bislama

(Folk song from Vanuatu)

Manu Taï
I fulap long coprah
Sea by sea
Long Malapoa
Captain i se
Wera yumi ko
Lettem nomo
Olwe long Fila aelan

English Translation – Manu Taï*

The Manu Taï
Is full of copra,
Sea by sea,
At Malapoa,
The captain says,
“Where are we going?”
Let’s just go
All the way to Fila Island.

*The Manu Taï is a ship carrying copra (dried kernel of the coconut).
