Te Marama i Te Po

Tahitian version of a song from Aotearoa



C6
te marama i te po nei
                       G7
nga whetu i te rangi
Dm              G7
oho ake au e hine
                       C6
papaki kau ana e

C6

me pehea ra au e hine 
                     G7
e mutu ai te aroha
Dm                G7
me rukuruku pea
                           D6
nga wai o waiapu e


English Translation
the moon in the night
and the stars in the sky
I awaken, o maiden
to a gentle tapping
so how will I, oh maiden
cease my pining
by diving into
the waters of Waiapu
