Hūtia te rito o te harakeke, kei hea te kōmako e kō, kī mai ki ahau,
He aha te mea nui o te ao, māku e kī atu,
he tangata, he tangata, he tangata.
Take away the heart of the flax bush and where will the bellbird sing?
If you ask me what is the most important thing in the world,
I will tell you it is people, it is people, it is people.
