Ka pioioi e

Ka pioioi e
Tohu aroha haukāinga

E hoki mai rā
Kia kite atu i tō iwi e.
E rotarota ana
E katakata ana mai rā.

Pūkana whetero mai
I te ihi ā ō mātua.

Kia kite atu ano
I tō ataahua ai kanapa rā
Pupuhi ai e te hau
Kapohia āku roimata.

Ka pioioi e
tohu aroha haukāinga.

This swaying dance
shows the love of your home-town people.

You've come back home,
to see your people.

There is gesturing and
laughing with joy at your return,


Eyes popping and tongues thrusting
from the energy of those performing.


I see again
your beauty gleaming there
caressed by the wind,
and my tears are snatched away.


This fluttering dance
shows your home-town people's love.

Kua eke mai nei
Kua eke mai nei ki runga te marae e

Mauria mai ra
Mauria mai ra e nga mate o te motu e
Me nga tini roimata
Me nga tini roimata e maringi whanui e

Titiro e nga iwi
Titiro e nga iwi e nga mahi o te motu
E hora atu nei e

Rū ana te whenua
Rū ana te whenua, whatiwhati te moana

Aue te aroha
Aue te aroha te mamae i ahau e.

Rū ana te whenua whatiwhati. Hei!
Our tribe is calling to the people

who have just set foot on this marae


Bring with you the memories of all our dead

and so many tears spilling forth nation-wide.


Look at our people working across the land
spread out far and wide


Shaking is the ground, quivering is the sea.


Oh, the love and the pain within me.

The ground shakes and quivers, yeah!

Tihore


Tīhore
Tīhore mai te rangi
Tīhore mai
Mao mao mao te ua
Whiti mai te rā,
Mao mao mao te ua
Whiti mai te rā.
E rere kōtare
Ki runga pūwharawhara
Ruru parirau
Kei mate i te ua,
Ruru parirau
Kei mate i te ua.
E rere e noke
Mai i tō pokorua
Kei kī i te wai
Kei mate i te ua,
Kei kī i te wai
Kei mate i te ua,
Tīhore mai te rangi
Tīhore mai
Mao mao mao te ua
Whiti mai te rā,
Mao mao mao te ua
Whiti mai te rā,
e . . . i . . . e
Whiti mai te rā,
Clear up sky
Clear up
Stop, stop, stop rain
Let the sun shine
Stop, stop, stop rain
Let the sun shine
Fly, kingfisher
Onto the astelia bush
Ruffle the rain drops from your wings
In case you catch a chill
Ruffle the rain drops from your wings
In case you catch a chill
Escape, worm
Out of your burrow
In case it fills with water
And you drown
In case it fills with water
And you drown
Clear up sky
Clear up
Stop, stop, stop rain
Let the sun shine
Stop, stop, stop rain
Let the sun shine
e . . . i . . . e
Let the sun shine

Tōia mai

Tōia mai te waka nei

Kūmea mai te waka nei

Ki te takotoranga i takoto ai

Tiriti te mana motuhake

Te tangi a te manu e

Pīpī-wha-rau-roa

Kūi! Kūi! Kūi!

Whitiwhiti ora!

Hui e, tāiki e.

E Ihowa

E Ihowa whakarongo mai ki te tangi o te iwi e

Awhinatia mai ra tatou e huihui nei

Tae noa ki te mutunga e Ihowa

Whakamoemiti ki te Atua i nga wa katoa

Ko ia ra te huarahi te pono te oranga
