The Song of PIBBA


Tinige’: Peter R. Onedera

Dandan: Joey Franquez


The winds blow chants from across the sea

Calling forth the islands of PIBBA’s family

And so we gather in knowledge, friendship,

and smiles

Of languages and cultures, a tribute to our isles.


Iokwe, raan annim, kaselehlia, alii, aloha

Olomwaay, hafa dei, tuwoh, mogethin, Talofa


The song of PIBBA rings forth loud and clear

We unite, we are one, there’s no lance,

there’s no spear

In our tongues we say we love you to one and all

We are strong, we are bold, we are proud,

we stand tall


Iokwe, raan annim, kaselehlia, alii, aloha

Olomwaay, hafa dei, tuwoh, mogethin, talofa


The song of PIBBA is strong through the waves

Our canoes, our coconuts, our heritage we praise

Our islands of PIBBA crisscross the blue sea

Bilingual-Bicultural, in us we trust, our destiny!


Iokwe, raan annim, kaselehlia, alii, aloha

Olomwaay, hafa dei, tuwoh, mogethin, Talofa

WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Do your best
In all that you say
In all that you do
To make your life worth living
To make a difference in the lives of others.

Realize that you're important to someone
And your genuine help from the kindness of your heart
To pick up others when the odds are stacked up against them
Gives them hope when they have none.

Remember…
If you help out others with no expectations in return
Then your life will be enriched with abundant goodness
And perhaps one day someone will be there for you too.

Living life right
Sacrificing even it hurts so much
Taking on meaningful challenges that may stab your heart a bit at times
All the while striving to be on the side with one's angel
Whom absorbs the goodness of your beautiful soul
Enables you to live a life that matters.

Keeping up the faith
Working as brothers and sisters
To make this world a better place
Moves a nation and heals our souls -
Tis the power of unity!

Remember that beauty is not dependent on your looks or wealth
But who you are deep within -
A remarkable and beautiful person filled with so much love to spread
Filled with inspirational momentum
To help others because you truly do care
Because you know it's the right thing to do
To make a difference!

And though you're hurting
Though your life is filled with strife that strikes your gentle soul
Sometimes you have to let things go even if you’re hurting deep inside.
You have to release your hold
And let things be
Because maybe it was never meant to be.

Sometimes you have to realize that you can’t take things for granted
Because when you least expect it
What you thought you had can be suddenly stolen
As if someone pulled the carpet fast from under your feet.

You have to hold your head up high even if you would rather cry.
You see, life can be very cruel
And it won’t get any better
Unless you move on with your life
Cut your losses
Invest in hope and faith
And with each day you’ll get stronger, and stronger, and stronger…

Grasp and gain the strength from deep within and trust in God
To live a life that makes a difference -
Tis the wonderful gift of life!
So join me, if you will and
Let's live a life that matters
Because together…
We can make a difference!
