Lyrics to Rotuman Songs

We are indebted to Dan Rafai, who collected these songs, to Mahlon Isimeli, who sent them to us, and to Ravai Shaw for checking the Rotuman spelling. We have chosen not to use Churchward's diacritics (dots and macrons) to keep things simple, and we apologize for errors that we may have introduced in transcribing the words. We welcome corrections to these songs as well as lyrics to additional ones.
