lyrics

PAHŪ
Oho ana au I te ata
Ko koe kai aku mahara
Kōingo ana au mōhou
Me whai wā au
Me tere taku kai parakuihi
Mōu ake aku moemoeā
Kotahi noa taku mahi
He wawata ki a koe

Pahū, pahū, pahū
Te pātuki, o te Manawa
Mōhou
Pahū, pahū, pahū
Te pātuki, o te Manawa
Mōhou

Kai te kura au tō noa te rā
Wairangi an ate hinegaro
Tono mai te māhita mo aku mahi
Rūrū taku māhunga
Kua wairangi au mōhou
E kore e tae ate karo
Kotahi noa taku mahi
He wawata ki a koe

Pahū, pahū, pahū
Te pātuki, o te Manawa
Mōhou
Pahū, pahū, pahū
Te pātuki, o te Manawa
Mōhou
