Lyrics - Tahitian

(Tahitian folk song)

E e e ma’e maita’i te ‘uru
A tunu ia ‘ama
Pahi te pa’a
Ta’iri’iri e
La u’ au’a e
‘Iriti te hune
E ‘ai te i ‘o

English Translation – The Tree Fruit Bread

This is very good Uru
It must be cooked well
Removes the bark
Clap, clap
It is tender
Removes heart
And eats it.

Recorder Notes D, E, G, A, B
