Question ID: 574493
There is a song that's in Tahitian - "Tahiti Tahiti" by the Hawaiian
grou "NA WAIHO`OLU`U O KE ANUENUE" (colors of the rainbow) and I need
the words for it - don't need the English translation (altho/it'd be
nice for an additional fee) - just the actual words so I can sing it.
Know some/most, just need the rest. Thanks for the help!

Hello tropicallady,

Here are the lyrics I have found, with French translation:

"Te vahine tahiti"

These lyrics are cited elsewhere as being for "Tahiti Tahiti." 
(Moreover, they match with a clip of the song I have heard.)

Don't feel stupid.  I nearly gave up myself -- this was far from the
easiest question.  I had to come up with some creative queries, and
look beyond the Web to Usenet postings, in order to find these lyrics.

Thanks a million for the speedy help! Have looked for months for this
- I'm feeling pretty stupid now :-)  The French translation is helpful
Thanks again.
