Pate Pate (Log drum)

Our new song we are currently learning...


Tokelauan
English
tu la ki luga ke fai malama
taimi tenei e fai na hiva
tu la ki luga ke fai malama
lue lue malie te gali o na hiva

aue aue
tama mimita
aue aue
teine mimita
aue aue
hihiva mimita
aue aue

kikila mai la fakaakiali atu

e a mai tau faiva e a mai
taku ika e fofou ai au
e a mai tau faiva e a mai

hihiva ki luga hihiva mai ve
hihiva malie ki te pate pate

chant:
hiva ki luga hiva ki lalo
hiva malie ki te pate pate

get up stand up let your feelings be known
the time has come to perform the dance
get up stand up let your intentions be known
swaying ever so sweetly the message in the dance

Oh! Oh!
the boys are very bold
Oh! Oh!
the girls are very bold
Oh! Oh!
the dancers are very bold
Oh! Oh!

Watch me now, it’s my turn to show

“How is the fishing with you, how is it?” (Girl)
“The fish that I truly long for” (Boy)
“How is the fishing with you, how is it? (Girl)

dance on up, dance just like that
dancing ever so sweetly to the Pate Pate (logdrum) X2

chant:
dance on up, dance on down
Dancing ever so sweetly to the rhythms of the log drum
