I whānau mai au i te taha o te awa o Waikato
I raro i te maru o te maunga o Maungatautari
He uri au nō Kōtirana me nō Hōrana
Nō Taranaki te whānau o tōku pāpā
Nō Waikato me nō Hōrana te whānau o tōku māmā
I whānau au ki Kemureti
I hūnuku tāku whānau ki Kanata i au e kōtiro ana
I tipu ake au i Amerika ki te raki
I ako au i te ture i te Whare Wānanga o Waikato
E noho ana au i Kihipene
