Lyrics - Samoan

(Folk song from Samoa)

Moe moe pepe
i tumutumu o la’au
A agi le matagi, e lue atu ma toe sau
A gau le lala, pa’ū le moega
Malie oe pepe, lau fa’aluega
Tagi mai le pepe
Tagi mai le fia ai
Ua faasusu le tinā,

ma toe moe le lelavā

Pepe pepe moe, aua e te tagi
Se’i alu mama e tala’i
Le tala lelei i le lalolagi
I uo ma e ua masani

English Translation - Sleeping Baby

Sleep baby sleep
in the tops of the trees
When the wind blows, it blows and comes again
When the branch breaks, the bed falls
You’re welcome baby, you’re welcome
The baby cried
Cries hunger
The mother is nursing,

and sleep again tired

Baby sleeping baby, don’t cry
Go clean and preach
The good news in the world
To friends and acquaintances
