I lose sight of my world, baby love No words can hold what's truly on my mind Just feel the beat of my heart And you'll know what i mean You're my pualena you're so beautiful God knows i love you, you're all i need Pualena you take my breath away, pualena You know lately, all i think about is holding you closely And never leaving your side i'll keep your warm Time passes by and still you're on. Can become a pukana He toki koe (you’re as sharp as an axe) - make muscles on one arm and then point at person for koe Kei runga noa atu koutou (You guys are up there!) - push up air, dance party Parahutihuti ana te haere (your super fast!) - riding a horse and wiping Ki hea? Aloha 'Pukana La' Family!“PukanaLa” means sunrise in Hawaiian. Sweeping through the strings of PukanaLa Ukulele, and feel the warmth and sunny spirit shines upon you like the morning sun.

Lyrics for Pualena by Vika

Ps4 controller model numbers. Island baby you're so beautiful, you drive me crazyYou know you're all that i need, so much moreYou're strength and beauty, i can see in your eyes

I lose sight of my world, baby loveNo words can hold what's truly on my mindJust feel the beat of my heartAnd you'll know what i meanYou're my pualena you're so beautifulGod knows i love you, you're all i needPualena you take my breath away, pualenaYou know lately, all i think about is holding you closelyAnd never leaving your side i'll keep your warmTime passes by and still you're on my mindI can't imagine living my life without you girlThe special moments you and i can only shareWill always keep us together and never apartTime passes by and still you're on my mindI can't imagine living my life without you girlThe special moments you and i can only shareWill always keep us together and never apart

If you’re looking for the New Zealand All Black rugby haka translation, you’ve found it! Plus this post gives you a little bit of background on who wrote it and why they have two hakas.

Let’s face it, the All Blacks are as famous for winning two back to back Rugby World Cups (played once every four years) as they are for their spine-tingling haka performed at the beginning of a test match against another country.

If you visit New Zealand during rugby season (winter) you should try and see an All Blacks game! But you’ll need to grab your tickets well in advance because we Kiwis love our team and international test matches between our beloved All Blacks and another nation always sell out.

If you are already a rugby fan then you’ll know all about the haka, but you may not know what the words mean, or even why they do it.

This post explains why we have two hakas: the traditional Ka Mate and the newer specific All Blacks haka, Kapa o pango, as well as the haka translation so you can understand what they’re so fired up about!

What is the haka?

The haka is a traditional Maori war cry. It is fierce and involves a male leader and a group of mainly men (women have only recently been doing the haka) chanting, stamping feet and hands in choreographed movements with some pretty scary looking pukana (that wild eyes with the tongue out that they do!)

The All Blacks perform two hakas, and you never know which one you’re going to get at a game: The iconic Ka mate haka was written by Maori chief Te Rauparaha as a war cry in 1820 before the warriors go to battle to try and scare the living daylights out of their opponents (click here for my blog on the Ka Mate translation).

The Ka mate haka is synonymous with Maori culture in New Zealand. It’s our most famous haka and there’d barely be a Kiwi male on their OE (overseas experience/gap year) who hasn’t performed it in a London pub! But there are many hakas: schools have their own, iwi (Maori tribes) also have their own.

While most people equate the haka with the start of an All Blacks rugby match, the haka is also done on occasions to honour great people.

One of the most moving things you’ll ever see is a haka done to honour someone like a dignitary with a huge welcome, or at a funeral of a cherished person or leader, or when someone has achieved something great like a gold medal at the Olympics.

Watch this spine-tingling haka from the Palmerston North Boys High School in front of a hearse carrying their beloved teacher. The haka performed in honour like this bring tears to my eyes.

But in 2005 a new haka was written (which I’ve not seen performed in a pub. Too sacred for that!).

Kapa o pango was first performed by the All Blacks against the South Africa Sprinkboks team in 2005 at Carisbrook, Dunedin. The All Blacks won 31 – 27.

Written by Derek Lardelli of the Ngati Porou iwi, this haka is performed before special test matches – and we the excitable fans never know which one will be performed until they start. If it’s Kapa o Pango the stadium will erupt in cheers because this one is only pulled out a couple of times a year by the All Blacks.
