Toia Mai

 

Tōia Mai (Haka)

Hei runga, hei raro.  Hi hā, hi hā!

A ha tōia mai,   Te waka!

Ki te urunga ,    Te waka!

Ki te moenga,    Te waka!

Ki te takotoranga takoto ai te waka!

 

 

 

 

Tōia Mai Te Waka

Tōia mai te waka nei 

Kumea mai te waka nei 

Ki te takotoranga takoto ai

Tīriti te mana motuhake

Te tangi a te manu nei

Pīpīwharauroa

Kui kui kui, whiti whiti ora

Hui e tāiki e

 

Haul it! Drag it!

The canoe

To its resting place

The canoe

To its abiding place.

The canoe

To the place where it will lie

Set it down, the canoe

 

Haul this canoe ashore

Drag this canoe ashore

To its resting place

And the Treaty of Waitangi bestowing on us our absolute authority.

Heralded by the cry of the bird.

The shining cuckoo

Calling, calling

For good to prevail

As we unite together as one
