Tika Tonu (Haka hou)






Ringa ringa nga e torōna 

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!
He hiki aha to hiki?
He hiki roa
 to hiki?
I a ha hā!
Pay attention
Listen up, take your stance!
Hi!
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
Roa ina hoki ra
Te tohe o te uaua na
E tāu nei. 
Āna! Āna! Āna! 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!
