Lyrics - Maori / English

(folk song from New Zealand)

Mā is white, whero is red, käkäriki is green,
Pango is black, mangu is too, A, E, I, O, U.

Köwhai is yellow, parauri is brown, kahurangi is blue,
Karaka is our orange, A, E, I, O, U.

Wera is hot, mākū is wet, makariri is cold,
Ua is rain, mahana is warm, A, E, I, O, U.

Tahi is one, rua is two, toru number three,
Wha is four, rima is five, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

Ono is six, whitu is seven, mwaru number eight,
Iwa is nine, tekau is ten, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.
