Kapa Haka

Please watch this Haka of Tika tonu at 20:58 Performed by the Kahurangi Group in 2008. Probably very accurate.
Ki aro
Kia whakaronga, kia mau!
Hi !
Ringaringa e torōno
kei waho hoki mai!
Kss Kss

Tika tonu!
U - e!
Tika tonu!
U... e!
Tika tonu atu
ki a koe, e tama
Hiki nei koe aku whakaaro, pakia!
  E  hiki aha to hiki?
E hiki aha to hiki?
I a ha hā!

Pay attention
Listen up, take your stance!
Arms outstretched,
out and back!
Kss Kss

What is right is always right!
In - deed!
What is right is always right!
Ah... yes!
Be true to yourself, my son!

My concerns have been raised about you, so pay attention!.... .
What is this problem you are carrying?
How long have you been carrying it for?
Have you got that? Right, let's go on.
E tama, te uaua ana
E tama, te mārō
(Miss a beat)
inā hoki rā
Te tohenga  te uaua na
E tāu nei.
Āna, aue, aue Aue... Hī!

So son, although it may be difficult for you
and son, although it seems to be unyielding
no matter how long you reflect on it
the answer to the problem
is here inside you.
Indeed! Indeed! Indeed! Yes, indeed   Tuuturu whakamaua kia tina! tina!
Haumi e! Hui e! Taiki e
