Tau ʻalu fononga ki Liku ke mamata he hifo he laʻā,
tau fonongo ki he mapu he manu mo e tangi he lupe,
tau toli he kakala ki he hifoanga ki Matoto,
tau nofonofo pea tau tufa he tatali mei Likuʻone,
tau kaukau ki tahi pea tau lanu ki he Vao-aka mo tau takai he fango nanamu,
tau tui kakala mo tau fī he sī heʻetau toli mei Matoto.
Ka tuʻu ange kitautolu ki he hifoanga ki ʻAna Manu,
tau sio hifo mo taʻemanava ki he mamaʻo he tahi ki lalo.
Kuo mau loto manatu he fuʻu matangi kuo mapu ange mai
mei he fuʻu toa ki tuku ʻuta ki tafangafanga.
Kuo te lotolahi he mamata he ngalu ki lalo fute ange noa ai he ke laiki he maka fefeka.
He meʻa ko ia kovi heʻetau nofo ni ki he nofo kia te kinautolu ki Muʻa.
Kuo efiafi tau ʻalu ki Muʻa; fonongo! kuo ongo mai he langi,
kuo nau ako he pō ula ke fai ʻapō ki he malaʻe ki Taʻanea?
Tau ʻalu ki ai.

ʻIkai te tau manatu ki heʻetau ʻulungāanga nofo lolotonga kuo teʻeki laiki he tau, he tau fonua.
ʻOiauē, ko e meʻa fuʻu manavahē ko e tau.
Vakai ange kuo vaoa he fonua pea kuo mate kovi he tuʻunga tangata.
Kuo nofo noa ai pē houʻeiki ʻikai te nau faʻa tango tokotaha pē he māhina ki heʻenau feʻauaki.
ʻOua naʻa tau manatunatu ko he loto kuo tau heʻetau fonua.
Ko e fonua ko Fisi naʻe ʻomai he tau ki heʻetau fonua ko Tonga,
pea kuo tau tupu leva ange ko kinautolu.
ʻOua naʻa tau manatunatu, tau mate ʻapē ʻapongipongi.

Tau vala he sī kula pea tau noʻoaki he tapa he ngatu,
tau ʻai he fau he tau tui siale pea tau kahoa he huni ke fuʻu hā ange tau ngānongano.
Fanongo ange he mavava he tuʻunga kāifonua.
Kuo hili he ula, pea kuo tufa he kaiʻanga heʻetau kātoanga;
tau ʻalu ʻapongipongi ki Muʻa.
ʻIkai he holi mai he tuʻunga tangata kole ange tau tuinga kakala,
pea pehē ange heʻenau lapu mai:
"He meʻa ko ia taʻe hoihoifua heʻetau tuʻunga fafine mei Liku,
ʻikai he lelei heʻenau kili nganongano,
kuo tatau heʻenau nanamu mo e hifoanga ki Mataloko mo Vaipūua.
Kuo te holi ke ʻalu ki Liku, tau ʻalu kitautolu ʻapongipongi."

Ko e meʻa fakamānako ʻoku ʻasi ʻi lalo ko e hiva tatau ʻi he sipela fakapilitānia, naʻe ngāueʻaki ʻe Tokiukamea.
