Toitu he whenua, whatungarongaro he tangata

The land is permanent, man disappears

Kia mau ki to Māoritanga

Hold fast to your culture

Nā tō rourou, nā taku rourou ka ora ai te iwi

With your food basket and my food basket the people will thrive

Ma te huruhuru, ka rere te manu

Adorn the bird with feathers so it can fly

Introduction / Nau mai

Working together for the betterment of our future generations

He mahinga tahi mo ngā uri o apopo

Ka tangi tō tītī
Ka tangi tō kākā
Ka tangi hoki ahau
Tihei mauri ora!
Ma ngā parihau o te Manukura e
rere nei ngā kupu mihi kia koutou
Tēnā tātau katoa
