|at Te Whareta, Taroa|
|our wheels, "The Beast"|
|waiting for a paddle|
he teitei te ara piki ki runga
he poupou te ara heke ki raro
penei me te noke e kopikopiko ana, e whakairoiro ana ki roto i te ngahere
he wa whakata, whakanga, okioki
|Waikaukau shot before leaving|
tena koe Matua Dennis, nahau i rangatira ai tenei hikoi
hari ana, koa ana, kua tutuki te kaupapa
ko Te Beast tenei, to matau waka, nana matau katoa i mau haere...
Hoea te waka, hoea ra
he tira kei uta, he tira kei tai
mutu ai he kai hoe, ara ake he kai hoe
nau mai haere mai ki Ngapukeriki, ko te Waikaukau tenei, he waahi marumaru i te hau, he waahi whiti ai e te ra...
