This is the heart of Papeete City, Tahiti. Relaxing in the veranda of the condominium owned by an Ilocano-French Polynesian (originally from Ilocos Sur) overlooking the Place Vaiete Fariipiti, Papeete City in Windward Islands, French Polynesia.


Lyrics of "Mihi au ia oe", a popular Tahitian song made famous by Andy Tupaia in Polynesian, French, and English versions.


MIHI AU IA OE (Tahitian)

E ita e moe iau to fareireiraa
ua fa mai te here rotopu ia taua
toro mai na to rima e tau i here
tiare oe no tou mafatu.

mihi au ia oe, mau taime atoa
tapao no tou here, here ia oe
tauahi mai iau, e tau vahine
apiti to taua here roto i teie nei ao.

ua hiti te mahana ei nia ia taua
te atea, te reva aratai (toea)
ei naha i teie nei, ua tae te manao
o oe tou hoa a muri noa atu.

mihi au ia oe mau taime atoa
tapao no tou here, here ia oe
tauahi mai iau, e tau vahine
apiti to taua tino roto i teie nei ao
apiti to taua here roto i teie nei ao.


JE ME LANGUIS (French)

Je n'oublirai pas notre rencontre
L'amour nacquit entre nous
donne-moi donc la main, toi mon amour
tu es la tiare de mon coeur.

je me languis de toi à tout instant
symbole de mon amour, mon amour pour toi
enlace moi, toi ma vahine
unissons notre amour dans ce monde/bonheur.

le jour se lève audessus de nous deux
les nuages, le firmament guidant (les anciens)
jusqu'ici aujourd'hui, atteignant ma conscience
c'est toi! mon amie/amour pour toujours.

(Second part in French)

je me languis de toi à tout instant
symbole de mon amour, mon amour pour toi
enlace moi, toi ma vahine
unissons nos corps dans ce monde
unissons notre amour dans ce bonheur.


I MISS YOU (English)

I will never forget the first time I met you
And the love that appeared between us
Give me your hand, you my love
You are the "Tiare"(Tahitian flower) of my heart.

I miss you/desire you all the time
Symbol of my love, my love for you
Embrace me, you my "Vahine"
Lets combine our love in this world.

(second part)

The sunny day is rising above us two
The clouds in the sky and the firmament
Here on this day, reaching my consciousness
It is with you my love, forever.

I miss you/desire you all the time
Symbol of my love, my love for you
Embrace me, you my "Vahine"
Let's combine our bodies in this world
Let's combine our love in this happiness.
