TOIA MAI HAKA LYRICS
Kokoma i te kokoma
Ko te hau tapu e rite
ki te kai ngā matariki (pakia)
Tapa rereia koia tapa
Tapa kononua koiana tukua i aue hi


Ko Rangitane e ngunguru nei
I au! Au! Au ha! I a ha ha !!!
Ko Ngati Raukawa e ngunguru nei
I au! Au! Au ha! I a ha ha !!!
Ara Aotearoa e ngunguru nei
I au! Au! Au ha! I a ha ha !!!


Ka tū te winiwini Ka tū te wanawana
Ki runga i te rangi e tū iho nei tū iho
(Ara totōia kumekumea hi!!!)
