Fiji rugby songs
The Cibi - Fiji's version of the Haka

Ai tei vovo, tei vovo
E ya, e ya, e ya, e ya,
Tei vovo, tei vovo
E ya e ya, e ya, e ya

Rai tu mai , rai tu mai
Oi au a viriviri kemu bai
Rai tu mai, rai ti mai
Oi au a viriviri kemu bai

Toa yalewa, toa yalewa,
Veico, veico, veico.
Au tabu moce koi au
Au moce ga ki domo ni biau

E luvu koto ki ra nomu waqa
O kaya beka au sa luvu sara
Nomu bai e wawa mere
Au tokia ga ka tasere

The Cibi - Fiji's version of the Haka (translation)

Make ready, make ready,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
Make ready, make ready
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Look hither, look hither,
I build a breastwork for you,
Look hither, look hither,
I build a breastwork for you

A cock and a hen,
They attack, attack, attack
It is tabu for me to slumber
Except to the sound of breakers

Your ship is sunk below,
Don't think I'm drowned too.
Your defence is just waiting
To crumble when I prick it

Fijian anthem - God Save the Queen

Blessing grant, oh God of nations, on the isles of Fiji,
As we stand united under noble banner blue.
And we honour and defend the cause of freedom ever,
Onward march together, God bless Fiji!

For Fiji, ever Fiji, let our voices ring pride,
For Fiji, ever Fiji, her name hail far and wide,
A land of freedom, hope and glory to endure whatever befall
May God bless Fiji, forever more!

Blessing grant, oh God of nations, on the isles of Fiji,
Shores of golden sand and sunshine, happiness and song.
Stand united, we of Fiji, fame and glory ever,
Onward march together, God bless Fiji!

For Fiji, ever Fiji, let our voices ring pride,
For Fiji, ever Fiji, her name hail far and wide,
A land of freedom, hope and glory to endure whatever befall
May God bless Fiji, forever more!
