Translation

All you people! All you people!
Be united as one like the Pacific Ocean
Hold on firmly! Hold on firmly!
To you separate identity and to compassion
All you young women! All you young women!
Rise up, rise up, be strong
All you young men! All you young men!
Listen, support, be strong

Hoki mai e tama mā ki roto, ki roto I ngā ringa e tuwhera atu nei, (A hi! aue! aue!) Kei te kapakapa mai te Haki, te Haki Ingarangi runga Tiamana e. Hoki mai, hoki mai ki te wā kāinga Kia tutuki te tūmanako, Kei te kapakapa mai te Haki, te Haki Ingarangi runga Tiamana e. I hoki mai, hoki mai ki te wā kāinga (Ki te aha?) Kia tutuki te tumanako, A kei te kapakapa mai te Haki, te Haki Ingarangi runga Tiamana e, Tahi, rua, toru, whā, hi aue hei!

Come back boys into, into these arms outstretched. (A hi! aue! aue!) Fluttering is the flag, the flag England over Germany. Come back, come back home In order to fulfil our hopes. Fluttering is the flag, the flag England over Germany. You came back, came back home (What for?) In order to fulfil our hopes. Fluttering is the flag, the flag England over Germany. One, two, three, four, hi aue hei!
