Grandpa by the Judds- Samoan version?
« on: May 10, 2010, 12:56:02 PM »
Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days
Sometimes it feels like this worlds gone crazy
Grandpa, take me back to yesterday
When the line between right and wrong
Didn't seem so hazy

(chorus)

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other, come what may
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say
Did families really bow their heads to pray
Did daddies really never go away
Oh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days

Grandpa, everything is changing fast
We call it progress, but i just don't know
And grandpa, let's wander back into the past
And paint me the picture of long ago

(repeat chorus)

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other come what may
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say and then forget
Did families really bow their heads to pray
Did daddies really never go away
Oh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days
Oh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days

Here is a nice version by Taimane Gardner in English

Emalo is asking ...
Talofa Samoa Tasi,

I am searching for the Samoan version to "Grandpa", sung by the Judds.  The Samoan version is a song dedicated to mothers.  Unfortunately, I don't know the name of the song, however, the chorus goes something like this:

Mama lou alofa e fa'amaoni
O a'u o lau tama e o'o i le oti
E tele lava o taimi oute le usita'i
Ae te alofa pea mai
Oute gutu oso atu i sau fai mai
Ta tu'u o'u vae i se feau e fai
Ooooh, mama ea
Sorry, fa'amagalo mai

Hopefully, you would know the song, but if not, then that's ok I guess.  I'll keep looking.

Faafetai tele,
EMalo
