Pakipaki Tu

Temiri

Pakipaki Tū i te kei o Mangapu
I mahue aue i te tikawe haere
I a ngā rau tukutuku ana i te ia ki Operiki
ka kite au i te kopua kanapanapa ki Waihiku rā
E Hori e Rangimātua hau o te haere ngā oneroa ki Matahiwi
okatia rā ka takoto ra te marino
tō reti rā ko te waka rā o Tainui
Hei whakawhiti atu ki Kaikoura
i hahae kau aku mata ki te wairama na Te Pehia e tia ē
Me whakahoki mai te makau ki ahau
ka eke nei ki Tongariro me whirinaki ki Koinaki kia Tamatoha
i te mea ra i hoki mai ki te kaipuke
Ko Rangihaua te wahine i rangona ki te hapai pu
katataki nei ka wheoi
Kotahi te manu o te tau he Pipiwharauroa”
Kui, Kui Whiti Whitiora!
