Kia mau ki tō ūkaipō
Kia mau hoki ki tō whānau
Kia mau ki tō ūkaipō
I tangata ai koe
I hari mai i a koe
Kia mau ki tō ūkaipō
Kia mau hoki ki tō whānau
Kia mau ki tō ūkaipō

Tangata pai a Hone
Pakari ana te tū mai
Takatū ana, tāria ana e te ao
Tē hoki mai, tē auraki mai
Ngaro ana i a ia te mana
He ao hurihuri, he ao horihori
Tāweko ana te taura tangata
Motu ana te taura karawa, ā

Pōhēhē ana a Hēni
I te huarahi tika ia
Mahue ngā hoa, haere atu ana
Tē huri mai anō
Ngaro ana i a ia te mana
Kimi tikanga hou, he ao horihori
Tāweko ana te taura tangata
Motu ana te taura karawa, ā

Ka mate! Ka mate! Ka ora! Ka ora!
Ka mate! Ka mate! Ka ora! Ka ora!
Tēnei te tangata pūhuruhuru
Nāna nei i tiki mai
Whakawhiti te rā
Upane, ka upane
Upane, ka upane
Whiti te rā!
