Song Library‎ > ‎


We use this Tahitian song as a game. It runs like "Doggy, Doggy, Where's Your Bone?" except we pass a "shell" (a colored scarf) around the circle, and the child in the middle is a wave.
For simplicity, we use only the words in bold.

No roto 'oe i te miti
Mā'a oe na te fe'e
Amuhia 'oe te fe'e.

'Anapanapa mai
Te 'oe 'apu iti e.

You live in the sea
You are the octopus's dinner
You are eaten by the octopus.

Your brightness!
Your shell!
