E Papa Waiari

E Papa Wairai


Lyrics

1. E pāpā Waiari,
Taku nei mahi
Taku nei mahi,
He tuku roimata

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

2. Māku e kaute
Ō hīkoitanga
Māku e kaute
Ō hīkoitanga Refrain

Translation

1. O Uncle Waiari,
All I’ve been doing
All I’ve been doing
Is shedding tears

Refrain
Alas I will die;
Oh darling, return to me
Alas I will die;
Oh darling, return to me

2. I will count
Your footsteps
I will count
Your footsteps
