Waiata Lyrics

Have you seen the sun shine on a Wairarapa summer day

When it rains it pours down to the rivers where it flows away

West snow capped mountains to eastern sunburnt hills

Down to valleys of plains that roll into their fields

Is it hard for us to see how wonderful it would be

All you need is love    He awa tipuna

All you need is love     He Aroha ki te whenua

All you need is love     Nga maunga ki nga awa

All you need is love    Our kaitiakitanga

Karanga mai ra ki nga iwi e

He karanga hap? ki a t?tau e

You've got to stand up now before it get's too late

You've gotta take a stand oohh before it gets too late

It is hard for us to feel

The problems that are real

All you need is love    He awa tipuna

All you need is love     He Aroha ki te whenua

All you need is love     Nga maunga ki nga awa

All you need is love    Our kaitiakitanga
