National anthem – Amerika Samoa

The kids have been in school now for a few weeks now, and every day at the start of school they sing the national anthems of the United States and America Samoa. Here they are singing in Samoan. I think they are great!

Samoan lyrics

Amerika Samoa
Lo’u atunu’u pele oe
Ou te tiu i lou igoa
O oe o lo’u fa’amoemoe
O oe o le Penina o le Pasefika
E mo’omia e motu e lima
E ua ta’uta’ua au aga i fanua
Ma ou tala mai anamua
Tutuila ma Manu’a
Ala maia tu i luga
Tautua ma punou i lou Malo
Ia manuia ia ulu ola
Amerika Samoa
O le Malo o le Sa’olotoga
Tautua ma punou i lou Malo
Ia manuia ia ulu ola
Amerika Samoa
O le Malo o le Sa’olotoga

English translation

Amerika Samoa
My most beloved country
I hail from thy name
You are my hope and pride
You are the pearl of the Pacific
Your five islands are all so precious
So great and famous are your heritage
And also the history of thy name
Tutuila and Manu’a stand up and be alert
Let us serve to the best our nation
Be blessed and productive
Amerika Samoa
Is the land of promising freedom
Let us serve to the best our nation
Be blessed and productive
Amerika Samoa
Is the land of promising freedom
