Translation

E pari rā ngā tai ki te ākau

E hotu rā ko taku manawa

Auē! Haria mai te aroha ki ahau

Te iwi e

He ngākau tangi noa

Tēnā rā! Tahuri mai!

E te tau! Te aroha

Tēnei rā ahau te tangi nei

Mōhou kua wehea nei

Haere rā! Mahara mai

E te tau! Kia mau ki a au

Haere rā! Ka tūturu ahau

Haere rā! (repeats verse at end)

Haere rā

E tama, haere rā.

Haria mai te aroha ki ahau

Auē! Me tangi noa

Ahau i muri nei

Haere rā

E tama, haere rā.
