Te Tama Ma'ohi Lyrics?

Does anyone know the lyrics to a Tahitian song called Te Tama Ma'ohi? I am not sure who sings the song but I am a real fan of this song ever since a Tahitian group performed at a Tahiti Fete competition.

Te Tama Maohi

Te 'oto' oto nei the birds are singing
Te manu o te ra'i in the sky
Pehepehe no 'oe a chan to you
E te tama o te fenua the child of the land
ua riro ho'i 'oe You are
maite ho'e feti'a like a star in the sky
No te ra'i e turamarama lights up
To' u orara'a my life.

'O 'oe ta'u mihira'a I miss you
Ta'u ferurira'a In my thoughts
i te mau mahana ato'a Everyday
'O 'oe te niu o te orara'a You're the foundation
of life
Te papa e vai nei that remains
I roto i to'u nei mafatu In my heart
'Aue te 'oa'oa All the happiness
Ia 'oe e te tama To you child
E tama ma'ohi Polynesian child.

Hope it helps

Te Tama Ma'ohi

The song was rearranged by Mevina (of Nonosina) and Kontiki (poly band based in SoCali) is usually the band that travels w/ Nonosina. However, the original writer/composer of this beautiful song is Tapuarii Laughlin. It's great to see our Polynesian people embracing all Polynesian music :) A beautiful thing!

Ia Manuia!

Is this song on a cd? If so, does anyone know where one could purchase it? I would really appreciate it if I could purchase this song or any cd that it's on. Thanks a lot.

yes you can buy it on Nonosina's myspace profile page. Jus go to myspace.com
and click on music and type in Nonosina
in the search engine.
You can buy their whole album or just the songs, they have a new album coming out soon to.
Hope that helps!
