New Zealand starts its Haka ka mate but then get interrupted by Tonga with their Sipi tau. Every time I watch this my skin gets goosebumps. Quite powerful when you see them perform against each other like this.
‘Ei e!, ‘Ei e!
(Aye, ay! Aye, ay!)
Teu lea pea tala ki mamani katoa
(I shall speak to the whole world)
Ko e ‘Ikhale Tahi kuo halofia.
(The Sea Eagles is famished unfurl.)
Ke ‘ilo ‘e he sola mo e taka
(Let the foreigner and sojourner beware)
Ko e ‘aho ni teu tamate tangata,
(Today, destroyer of souls, I am everywhere)
‘A e haafe mo e tautua’a
(To the halfback and backs)
Kuo hu’i hoku anga tangata.
(Gone has my humanness.)
He! he! ‘Ei e! Tu.
(Hey! hey! Aye ay! Zap.)
Teu peluki e molo mo e foueti taka,
(Maul and loose forwards shall I mow)
Pea ngungu mo ha loto fita’a
(And crunch any fierce hearts you know)
Teu inu e ‘oseni, pea kana mo e afi
(Ocean I drink, fire I dine)
Keu mate ai he ko hoku loto.
(To death or victory my will is fine.)
Ko Tonga pe mate ki he moto
(That’s how Tonga dies to her motto)
Ko Tonga pe mate ki he moto.
(To her motto Tonga gives all.)
