Tina taua

//Tia roko nte bong aio tairikin te bong aei

Kukurei tina kukurei

Tia manga itaramata naba

Ngaira ni kabaneira

Te moangare te kimareirei

Sa ra ra..ra ra..ra ra ra ra

Ni kamwaiea kamwaiea//

//Teirake ngkoe te roronga

Teirake katika toam

Te ataeinaine ae bon am size

Teirake saunimwane

Teirake katika toam

Saunaine mamaten nanom

Tia mwaninga ngkai tia mwaninga

Ni kamwaiea, kamwaiea//
