Titiro ki runga rā, ki Te Wharepūhunga a Kahu
Te kāinga tūturu o Raukawa tupuna, Raukawa tangata
Tū mai ra a Hoturoa rāua ko Takihiku
Hei whakaruruhau mō Raukawa ki Wharepūhunga
Ka huri ki te whakateraki
Ka whākana aku mata ki te kāhiwihiwi o Tararua
Tiro whakararo ra ki te waitārere, waitāhekeheke o Manawatū.
Rere noa atu au ki runga i a Kererū,
ki te whatitoka o Māhinaarangi
Te whare mōwai, mō tōku rahi

Tēnei a Raukawa ki uta, Raukawa ki tai
Takihiku ki uta, Takihiku ki tai
E whakamānawa atu nei ki ngā tōpito o tō tātou kura

Kei te pūmanawa o Te Ika a Māui, e koro Ruapehu tū mai rā
Parikino, e pari nei i te kino ki tōku hapū ki a Ngāti Tuera
Te awa atua, te awa tupua, e ko Whanganui
Te tupuna, te tawhito, Haunui-a-Pāpārangi
Ngā wai inuinu o Ruatipua ērā
Ngā manga iti e honohono kau ana
Ka hono, ka tupu hei awa
Hei awa tupua
E rere kau mai te awa nui
Mai i te kāhui maunga ki Tangaroa
Ko au te awa, ko te awa ko au

Tini whetū ki te rangi Rangitāne ki te whenua”
Nei rā te mihi ki tōku koroua ko Te Oti Eruera Turei. Nāna ahau i whakaingoa ki te ingoa o tōna kuia arā, a Merenea. I korowaiatia e ngā pae maunga o Tararua te awa o Ruamahanga. E hoe ana te waka o Kurahaupo te Iwi o Rangitāne. Ka puta te hapū o Ngāti Moe ki te marae o Papawai.
“E rere kau mai te awa nui mai te Kāhui Maunga ki Tangaroa, ko au te awa, ko te awa ko au”

Nei rā te mihi ki tōku kuia ko Agnes Piupiu Taputoro. Nāna anō ahau i manaaki, i tiaki i taku tipuranga. Ko Ruapehu te maunga ahi kōmau ki te wairere o Whanganui. Ka hoea te waka o Aotea ko te iwi o Te Āti Hau nui a Paparangi, heke mai ki te hapū o Wainuiarua.
Ko Meranea Turei tōku ingoa. Ko ahau te kaiako o Kāpuka.
