AKU MAHI

AKU MAHI
Lyrics: Kohine Te Whakarua Ponika

Hi aue aue.
Karanga karanga karanga karanga rā
Karanga Aotearoa e
E ngā iwi o te motu e
Hāere mai rā
Hāere mai rā
Hāere mai rā ki aku mahi e
Tukua rā ngā kupenga
Kia haere ana i waho e
Tōia mai tōia mai kumea mai
Ā tāua mahi e

Ka huri au (hi)
Ka titiro
Ka huri au (hi)
Ka whakarongo
Ka huri au (hi)
Ka tahuri ki te awhi mai
I aku aha
I aku mahi
A aku tīpuna e
Te haka tēnā
Te poi tēnā
Te mahi ā-ringaringa e
Te hiki taku mere
I taku taiaha
Te wana taku ihi e
Pupuritia!
Takahia takahia
Kia whakarongo ai ngā iwi
Pupuritia pupuritia pupuritia
Ā tāua mahi e
