lyrics

ME TOHU NGĀ TAMARIKI
Koropiko ki te rā
Whaaki atu ki te marama
Kauria ngā wai ātea
I te taha hāpua

Kanikani wairangi
I te warenga a auahi
He raranga whakairo
He ao paoa anō

He kōrero tipatipa ki tā etahi
Me tohu ngā tamariki i mōhio

Tirohia te wai e hoa
Ngā wai hohonu
He kaiora porehu
Nō ao pūrākau

Kanikani wairangi
I te warenga a auahi
He raranga whakairo
He ao paoa anō

He kōrero tipatipa ki tā etahi
Me tohu ngā tamariki i mōhio
