Fijian – Viti: Na cava na vuna

IVakadewa ni Viti

ivakamacala e botona: Yalovinaka kilikitaka mera wilika, vinaka vakalevu na nomuni.

vakadonui Vakavalagi na vakadewa:
na cava na VUNA?
e sega li ni veisau?
Eda sega ni kauwaitaka na o ira na era taleitaki keda,
taleitaki na sai ira oqo era sega ni kauwaitaka keda,
lomani ira na wekada era vakamavoataki keda,
kei na vakararawataki ni o ira era dau lomani keda.
Na cava na vuna, ni vuna na cava na vuna na cava na vuna?

Taleitaki ira tale eso, bulataka na vakai ira!
Vakararawataki e sega ni dua, lomana, ka lesu tale na loloma!
Cakava na lomana, procreate na bula vou!
Sai koya na loloma ka dau maroroya na vuravura e bula tiko!
Oqori na cava na vuna me baleta na bula taucoko!

English translation:
WHY?
isn’t it ironic?
we ignore the ones who adore us,
adore the ones who ignore us,
love the ones who hurt us,
and hurt the ones who love us.
Why, why why why?

Adore each other, live  for each other!
Hurt no one, love, and return love!
Make love, procreate new life!
It is love that keeps the world alive!
That is the why for all life!
