Tēnā koutou, Tēnā koutou, Tēnā koutou, Mihi mai, mihi mai.
Ka rere tāku manu mai i tōna kōhaka ki Kaitara.
Huri atu e tāku manu ki Kuhaka wariwari tae atu ki te Marukura.
A, ka rere tōnu tāku manu ki te pae mauka o Waipuna.
Ā, ka roha, ka tiu tāku manu ki te Pā Harakeke o Tutaki Kahukura ki Pohatu.
Koinei te whariki tĪpuna o Koukourārata.
I tū mai ai i raro nei i nga pae mauka ko Te Ahu Patiki, Ko Te Upoko o Hinetewai,
Ko Pohue. Ko Koukourārata te awa e rere tōnu nei ki te moana. Ko Makawhiu te moana. Ko Kāti Huikau te hāpu e piri tōnu nei. Ki te mana o te whenua.
Tihei mauri ora.
