(Honolulu, HAWAI’I)

Portuguese sausage
Furikake on rice and eggs
I’d chuck my fave breakfast
For a nice pair of rugby legs

Lean, mean, cheetah-fast
Running machines
Make a rugby dummy
Into a crazy rugby fiend

C’mon! Score! Yes!
What a beautiful try
I like your penalty kicks
The cuts in your thighs

Such awesome form
When you're in that scrum
From Apia Park, Samoa
To the Aloha Stadium

Vets Memorial Stadium
Amerika Samoa in Ili’ili
Sam Boyd, the 7s
In that famous Sin City

This is a tribute to all men
Endowed with legs
Of rugby legends

Legs of steel, legs in blue
They score for the Lord
And their fans so true

Siva Tau
A dance of war
Tackle for country
Village, family honor

Bone-crunching hits
Take all for the team
A gentleman’s sport
Living the dream

Country to country
Shore to shore
Sharing God’s best
Gifted to Samoa

Gladiator legs
Strength of Hercules
The face of Adonis
Warrior of humility

Prayers line the field
Give praise to Him
Before, during, after
Lose, tie and win

Call them Manu Samoa
Call them Toa Samoa
Call them Talavalu
But there are still more

The Eagles, Tomahawks
For the USA
They’ve been blessed too
With Pacific rugby legs

Tune in, find a link
Read up, get rugby smart
You’ll agree rugby legs
Are works of divine art
