Tangaroa- He oli kaua mai Aotearoa mai na Tiki Taane

Ko Papatuanuku me Ranginui nga matua o te ao
I puta mai nga tamariki, he atua o te ao
He atua o te moana, ko Tangaroa he atua o te moana

Tu mai te ihi, tu mai te wehiwehi, tu mai te wanawana, e
Tu mai te ihi, tu mai te wehiwehi, tu mai te wanawana, e
Tu mai te ihi, tu mai te wehiwehi, tu mai te wanawana, e

Hi, ha, aue!

I really love na 'olelo Pakipika, especially the correlations between 'olelo Hawai'i and korero Maori. There's something about the tones and the consonants in Maori that sets off a fire in me, especially in chant. Not to say that there isn't the same with oli, because I love hearing oli kahiko, but I feel drawn to both.
