Island Girl

By Pablo Tupuola

(Tune same as hapa Hawai'ian song "Raised On Rice")

When I first saw you standing here
I couln't believe my eyes
That a girl from the islands could be near
The shyness in my eyes
As I was taken by suprise
From Samoa to the heartland of Georgia
Here we are together
Please don't forget me
Have I come too late
Or could it be you wish to be free...

So many fish in the sea
So many coconuts in the tree
So many girls who pass me by
But only one who could touch my heart
Yeah...island girl,la'u pele...

Samoan version soon!!
