Tui - Kaitiakitanga

Look it's our friends in the sky 

Tui, Ruru and Kahu flying by

sent by Rangi to tell us a story

about AIS its mana and Tikanga

Thanks to papatuanuku for life & kai 

Rangi gives us tears of water from up high

Without these two we can not live our lives 

That's our Kaitiakitanga of our earth & sky

 

Chorus 

Ka mahi Tahi Tatou, Ka taua…

Ka mahi Tahi Tatou, Ka taua tatou 

 

Raru - Whanaungatanga

Whanautanga connecting with me

Mahi tahi, Tui, Ruru and Kahu

Look around me all I see is family

Mahi tahi, Tui, Ruru and Kahu

We living with each other   

Treat them like a brother

Sister, dad, mother 

we are kind to each other

 

Chorus 

Ka mahi Tahi Tatou, Ka taua…

Ka mahi Tahi Tatou, Ka taua tatou 

 

Kahu - Manaakitanga

Manaakitanga share it around

love and support, that's us now 

Stokes Valley, Avalon, in Taita town

Switch it, mix it, flip it upside down (off the ground)

absorb the energy,  eat the healthy lunch 

Munch a bunch of lunch to make the crunch 

do what we do when we work with the crew

Māhi Tahi Tui, Ruru and kahu 

Bridge - ?

Chorus 

Ka mahi Tahi Tatou, Ka taua…

Ka mahi Tahi Tatou, Ka taua tatou 

 

Tui Ruru & Kahu - Mauri ora - ?
