Translation

Haane! E koro e!

Ka rongo, ka rongo

He iwi kotahi tātou

Ahakoa, ko wai

Ahakoa, nō hea

He tangata, he tangata, he tangata.

Koinā tā rātou e kī ai

Ka horihori ngā ngutu tere!

Nā, ka rarapa te mura o te ahi

Kia hiwa rā! Kia hiwa rā!

Ka rongo te iwi Māori

Ka rongo ka rongo

Muia ngā tari hōia e te tini o ngā uri o Tūmatauenga

He aha koa! He aha koa!

Ko tā rātou i whakarite ai mō te pōkai tara?

He ngārahu Pākehā

Mā te karoro ngā kākā e arataki

Mahi kūware!

Mahi tinihanga!

Engari Tā Apirana mō te Niu Tīrenitanga he aha tā rātou i utu ai?

Rātou i haere konihi mai i te maru o te Tiriti!

Ahakoa tō tātou kaha

E kore e ea – kore kore rawa

He utu nekeneke, he utu nekeneke

Haane, e koro e

Tangata wehi kore

Tangata māia

Tītoko o te rangi whakawhiti o te rā

Ka haruru te whenua i Takaruna e.
