Taniwha (mythical monster) song
One day a taniwha
Went swimming in the moana (Motion your hand across your body to imitate the waves of the sea)
He whispered in my taringa (Cup your hand behind your ear)
Oh won’t you come with me (Use your index finger to beckon your child)
There’s such a lot to see (Cup your hands around your eyes, like binoculars)
Underneath the deep blue sea (Motion your hand across your body to imitate the waves of the sea)
But I said ‘No, no, no, I have to go, go, go (Shake your head, march your feet)
Although I know we could be friends
My mother waits for me underneath the Kowhai tree  
Taniwha haere ra (Wave goodbye)
