lyrics

TAMAITI NGARO
Kitea ana tō tū i rō ua
E whakaū ana koe
Kitea ana te mamae kai tō kanohi
He wā roa e kite anō au i ā koe
Ko wai ka mōhio
Ki ō haerenga atu, o haerenga mai

Tamaiti ngaro 
Kīhai au i mōhio 
Kīhai au i mōhio 
Kīhai au i mōhio 
Kīhai au i mōhio

He aha rā o kitenga ake
He aha rā kai ō mahara
Māku noa e kī ake
He take rā kai te haere
E raru nei rā tāua
Te pouri o ō whatu
He ārai ki tō wairua
Ko wai ka mōhio
Ki ō haerenga atu o haerenga mai

Tamaiti ngaro 
Kīhai au i mōhio 
Kīhai au i mōhio 
Kīhai au i mōhio 
Kīhai au i mōhio 

Pātuki ohorere ana tō manawa
Pātuki katoa mai ngā mahara
He pango anake kai te mata o te pō 
Kia uira ake taku rama mā 

Tamaiti ngaro
Kīhai au i mōhio
Kīhai au i mōhio 
Kīhai au i mōhio 
Kīhai au i mōhio
