lyrics

Tū te pou, hui te marama
Hi! Ha!
Whakamaua te kakau o te hoe
Hi! Ha!
Kia aronui te hoe
Hi!
Korewa te hoe
Hi!
Kumea te hoe
Hi! Hi! Hi!

I te tōnga ō te rā
Tāherea ngā wairua
Ki te taurapa ō te waka
Heke ki Te Hao ō Rua
Tiaki atu rā ki ngā pō o Tangaroa
Tōna rewanga mai
Ka maka atu ai
Ngā wairua ruiruiā
Kua whetūrangitia
Māringi ngā roimata
E tangi apakura ana
Tapareireia koi e tapa
Tapakonunua koi ana tukua hī hī hī hā!

Te Waka o Rangi
Te Waka o Rangi uea
Maringiringi maringiringi ngā roimata
“Ko Matariki te kaitō i te hunga pakeke ki te pō”
Te Rangatira
Te Rangatira o runga
Taramainuku
E whiu ana te kupenga
Tāherea ngā wairua
Ki te taurapa o te waka
Pipiri ki ā Haratua
Tiaki atu ki Te Hao o Rua

Uea hī hī!
Te waka hī hā!
Hoea hī hī!
Te waka hī hā!
“Ko Matariki te kaitō i te hunga pakeke ki te pō”
Uea hī hī!
Te waka hī hā!
Hoea hī hī!
Te waka hī hā!
Tāherea ngā wairua
Ki te taurapa o te waka
Pipiri ki a Haratua
Tiaki atu ki Te Hao o Rua

Te Waka o Rangi
Te Waka o Rangi e ara
Karangahia aureretia ngā īngoa
“Ko Matariki te kaitō i te hunga pakeke ki te pō”
Te Rangatira
Te Rangatira o runga
Taramainuku
Kumekumea
Kawekawea
Maka atu te kura
Ruiruia atu te kura
Ki te poho o te rangi
Ngā kura kua whetūrangitia

Uea hī hī!
Te waka hī hā!
Hoea hī hī!
Te waka hī hā!
“Ko Matariki te kaitō i te hunga pakeke ki te pō”
Uea hī hī!
Te waka hī hā!
Hoea hī hī!
Ki runga rā hī hā!
Maka atu te kura
Ruiruia atu te kura
Ki te poho o te rangi ngā kura kua whetūrangi….tia

Ko Matariki te ihu o te waka nei
Ko Pōhutukawa e hono ana ngā mate
Te kupenga a Taramainuku - kumea
Turuturu roimata e tangi apakura ana
Kumea kumea kawe kawea
Ruia ruia ruia
Kua whetūrangitia
Te kupenga a Taramainuku - kumea
Turuturu roimata e tangi apakura ana
Te Waka o Rangi ki te hoe…
