Maori Songs

Haere mai, Haere mai x 2
E ngā iwi e
Haere mai
Ki runga o te marae
Hui mai, tātou, katoa

E hine mā, e tama mā
Hapainga o, te mana māori e
Kia rewa runga rawa,
I a ha hā
E ngā iwi e
Haere mai, haere mai x 2


English Translation

Welcome, welcome x 2
All the tribes
Welcome
onto the marae courtyard
all of us gathered here

Young women, young men
Lift up your Maori honour
to float up high
ya ha ha!
All the tribes
Welcome, welcome
