Mau tonu te rokihau e Te Whatumanawa hoki Horahia ngā mātauranga Kia ora ake ai te hunga rangatahi
E ngā tāpiri, o Rehua maranga e Ko te kuku o taku aroha mauiora Tīhei mauriora
E ngā kaumātua Maranga ake ai Tihei mauriora
Composed by Hone Hurihanganui
Written by Hone in 1990 for the Kaumātua o Wairarapa. Has specific reference to Uncle Kuki who was a dedicated bowls player in the actions of the waiata.
Produced by Wairarapa Moana Trust
