Ko Nga Moteatea, Me Nga Hakirara O Nga Maori
Tenei te riri nei, te riri nei,
Tenei te toa nei, te toa nei.
Ka whati kau ana, te tai ki Tokerau,
Te tai ki Tokerau;
Ho mai to uri, ki runga ki te pakiaka rakau,
Kei reira tarewa ai, to kiko whakairo.
* This was sung by the rebel natives immediately after the capture of Kororareka. It is probably a very ancient one.
