'Ei e!, 'Ei e!
Teu lea pea tala ki mamani katoa
Ko e 'Ikale Tahi kuo halofia.
Ke 'ilo 'e he sola mo e taka
Ko e 'aho ni te u tamate tangata,
'A e haafe mo e tautua'a
Kuo hu'i hoku anga tangata.

He! he! 'Ei e! Tu.

Te u peluki e molo mo e foueti taka,
Pea ngungu mo ha loto fita'a
Te u inu e 'oseni, pea kana mo e afi
Keu mate ai he ko hoku loto.

Ko Tonga pe mate ki he moto
Ko Tonga pe mate ki he moto.

Translation

Aye, ay! Aye, ay!
I shall speak to the whole world
The Sea Eagles is famished unfurl.
Let the foreigner and sojourner beware
Today, destroyer of souls, I am everywhere
To the halfback and backs
Gone has my humanness.

Hey! hey! Aye ay! Zap.

Maul and loose forwards shall I mow
And crunch any fierce hearts you know
Ocean I drink, fire I dine
To death or victory my will is fine.

That's how Tonga dies to her motto
To her motto Tonga gives all.

Tongan anthem - Pule'anga Tonga

'E 'Otua Mafimafi,
Ko ho mau 'Eimi koe,
Ko Koe ko e falala 'anga,
Mo e 'ofa ki Tonga:
'Afio hifo 'emau lotu
'Aia 'oku mau fai ni,
Mo ke tali ho mau loto
'O malu'i 'a Tupou

Tongan anthem (translation) - Kingdom of Tonga

Oh Almighty God above,
Thou art our Lord and sure defence,
In our goodness we do trust Thee
And our Tonga Thou dost love;
Hear our prayer, for though unseen
We know that Thou hast blessed our land;
Grant our earnest supplication,
And save Tupou our King
