Hoki Mai

Maori Songs

Hoki mai e tama mā ki roto, ki roto
I ngā ringa e tuwhera atu nei.
Kei te kapakapa mai te Haki, te Haki
I nga rangi runga Tiamana e.

Hoki mai, hoki mai ki te wā kāinga
Kia tutuki te tūmanako.
Kei te kapakapa mai te Haki, te Haki
I nga rangi runga Tiamana e.

Hoki mai, hoki mai ki te wā kāinga
Kia tutuki te tūmanako.
Kei te kapakapa mai te Haki, te Haki
I nga rangi runga Tiamana e.


English Translation

these arms outstretched.
Fluttering is the flag, the flag
in the skies over Germany.

Come back, come back home
in order to fulfill our hopes.
Fluttering is the flag, the flag
in the skies over Germany.

in order to fulfill our hopes.
