Official “Mahuru” lyrics

Whakarongo mai
Ki te reo karanga
E hoa mā
I ngā hau e whā
Me mahara
Te reo tuku iho nei

Māna anō
Tātou e kotahi
Ō tātou ringa (ringa)
E pupuri
Ō tātou waha
E mihi atu nei
Nā te mea….

Chorus:
Mahuru me kōrero Māori
Mahuru me kōrero Māori
Mahuru me kōrero Māori e

Mahuru, Mahuru, Mahuru, Mahuru x 3

Me awhi atu
I te hunga ako
Ngā tauira
Mai i ngā wāhi katoa
Mā koutou
E ora ai te reo

Māna anō
E kīia nei
Nō tēnei whenua koe
Tō tātou reo
O Aotearoa e
Nā te mea….

Chorus:
Mahuru me kōrero Māori
Mahuru me kōrero Māori
Mahuru me kōrero Māori e

Tukua te reo ki te rangi
Kia haruru ki te ao katoa
Nā te mea…

Chorus:
Mahuru me kōrero Māori
Mahuru me kōrero Māori
Mahuru me kōrero Māori e

Mahuru, Mahuru, Mahuru, Mahuru x 3
