Have been really loving this album and in case you would like to sing along but end up humming some because you don’t know the words then these lyrics should help.

1. NGA IWI E

Nga iwi e! Nga iwi e!
Kia kotahi ra te Mo-a-na-”nwi”-kiwa
e-i-a-i-e ———–

Kia mau ra! Kia mau ra!
ki te mana motuhake me te aroha
e-i-a-i-e ———–

Wahine ma! Wahine ma!
Ma-ra-nga mai, Ma-ra-nga mai, kia kaha
e-i-a-i-e ———–

E tama ma! E tama ma!
E tama tu, E tama tu, tama ora!
e-i-a-i-e ———–

Nga iwi e! Nga iwi e!
Kia kotahi mai te Moana-”nwi”-kiwa
e i-a i-e ———–

2. E PAPA WAIARI
E papā Waiari,
Taku nei mahi
Taku nei mahi,
He tuku roimata

Ē aue, ka mate au;
E hine hoki mai rā
Ē aue, ka mate au;
E hine hoki mai rā

Māku e kaute
Ō hīkoitanga
Māku e kaute
Ō hīkoitanga

3. ME HE MANU RERE
Me he manu rere ahau e,
Kua rere ki tō moenga,
Ki te awhi tō tinana,
Aue, aue!
E te tau, tahuri mai.

Kei te moe te tinana,
Kei te oho te wairua,
Kei te hotu te manawa,
Aue, aue!
E te tau, tahuri mai.

5. TUTIRA MAI NGA IWI

Tūtira mai ngā iwi
Tātou tātou e
Tūtira mai ngā iwi
Tātou tātou e
Whai-a te marama-tanga
me te aroha – e ngā iwi!
Ki-a Katapa-tahi,
Ki-a ko-tahi rā.
Tātou tātou e.
Tā – tou, tā – tou E!!
Hi aue hei !!!

5. HOKI MAI

1. Tomo mai e Tama mā ki roto, ki roto
I ngā ringa e tuwhera atu nei,
Ki ngā mōrehu o te Kiwi e,
Ki ngā Tama Toa o tēnei riri nui.

Chorus:
Hoki mai, hoki mai ki te wā kāinga,
Kua tutuki te tāmanako,
Kei te kapakapa mai te Haki, te Haki
O Ingarangi i runga Tiamana e.

2. Hoki ruarua mai e Tama mā
Ki ngā iwi e tatari atu nei,
Kua mahue atu rā ngā tini hoa
Ki runga whenua, iwi kē.

3. Na Te Moana rā ko te Wikitoria,
Hei whaka-maumahara-tanga e,
Ki o rātau tinana kei pāmamao
Ki o rātau ingoa kei muri nei.

8. KA RU KA RU

Taku wairua ora e
tupu taku kino nei e?

Aue, te mataku e
Karekare, ka ma-tau e
Karekare, ka ma-tau e

Ka rū, Ka rū,
Ka te hī au e
Ka rū, Ka rū,
Ka te hī au e
Ka rū, Ka rū,
Ka te hī au e
Ka . hae – re . ki . te . o – ra . mōu .

Ka haere, ka haere
Kau-mā-tu-a e
Karekare kaumātua e

Ka rū, Ka rū,
Ka te hī au e
Ka rū, Ka rū,
Ka te hī au e
Ka rū, Ka rū,
Ka te hī au e
Ka haere ki te ora mōu……

Wairua ana rei
te mataku nei e

11. TOIA MAI

Tōia mai te waka nei
Kūmea mai te waka nei
Ki te takotoranga i takoto ai
Tiriti te mana motuhake

Te tangi a te manu e
Pīpī-wha-rau-ro-a
Kūi! Kūi! Kūi!
Whitiwhiti ora!
Hui e, tāiki e.

I think Taika could be our generations new funny guy and lets be honest, we have had a few try to be funny but haven’t had a true comedic genius since Billy. I’m hanging out to see maori depicted differently to the whale riding, spiritual egg making wife beaters the world thinks we are. Taika Waititi’s new film ‘BOY’ is released this week and i can’t wait. I think Cliff Curtis better watch out. Taika might be the new Cliffy.

We have a bit of a tradition with roots music, from the Herbs, Unity Pacific, Twelve Tribes, Che Fu, Katchafire, FFD, Sal’ Dub, Black Seeds, Kora… the list goes on and on. New print for today based on my love for a style of music i like to call Aotearoa Roots. Hope to get it up on the webstore sooner rather than later.
