"Isa lei" is an exclamation of regret.

Below is an English version of the song, not a literal translation.

Isa Lei - Fijian Children's Songs - Fiji - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image

Notes

Pronunciation:

g = ng (in the middle of a word)
d = nd (mid word)
c = th
ba = mba

Here's my try at translating the first verse and chorus:

Oh Woe

Oh, oh, sincere, content visitor,
Your leaving will bring me unhappiness
Why ever you came
I'm not content that you go.

(Chorus)
O woe, my unhappiness
Because you depart in the morning.
Think of how content we were
In Suva, you will be remembered.

If anyone would like to send a literal translation, please email me. Thanks! Mama Lisa
