Lyrics

New Zealand! New Zealand! Majestic and grand
From snow covered mountains to warm golden sand
We’ll always be kiwis wherever we roam
And that’s why New Zealand will always be home

Aotearoa ataahua e
Nga maunga e tu nei nga wai e rere
Ahakoa ka haere tipiwhenua
Ka noho ko Aotearoa toku kainga

The sea fearing Maori were first on the scene
And then came the british for country and queen
A treaty was signed in Waitangi one day
Since then to our homeland the world’s found its way

New Zealand! New Zealand! Majestic and grand
From snow covered mountains to warm golden sand
We’ll always be kiwis wherever we roam
And that’s why New Zealand will always be home
