South Pacific Beauty Lyrics

Written by Allen Kedea & sung by Hanley Logoso

Verse 1
South Pacific beauty you are, you come from an oasis so far.
Just like a bird, you’re so graceful and free, what a woman should be.

Your magic smile and your island wear, your tender touch and the way you care.
Sharing your culture and language with us, we wanna say thank you.

Pre-Chorus
We are connected, through the ocean, people of the sea together as one.

Chorus
We wanna say Aloha and good day,
We wanna say Talofa, Malo E Le Lei,
Bula Vinaka, Kia orana, Kia ora,
Faka Lofa La’i Atu, mipela hamamas lo bungim u
A jewel of the islands a queen, the queen of the pacific sea.

Verse 2
So when you walk, hold your head up high,
No need to be afraid, timid or shy
The spirit of the islands is what we share,
Of giving and care.

Thank you to your mama for bringing you up right
Knowing how to love and what is wrong and right
A gift from God is what you truly are
and I wanna say thank you!

Pre-Chorus
We are connected, through the ocean,
People of the sea, together as one,

Chorus
We wanna say Aloha and good day,
We wanna say Talofa, Malo E Le Lei,
Bula Vinaka, Kia orana, Kia ora,
Faka Lofa La’i Atu, mipela hamamas lo bungim u
A jewel of the islands a queen, the queen of the pacific sea.

Outro
Hahine your the one to be,
pearl of the pacific sea,
South Pacific Beauty, You Are… Bird of paradise to me.
Queen of the pacific sea.
