Two little blackbirds sitting on a hill.
(Hold up both index fingers.)
One named Jack, the other named Jill.
(Hold one up, then the other.)
Fly away Jack, fly away Jill.
(Put one finger behind back, then the other.)
Come back Jack; come back Jill!
(Bring one finger around to the front, then the other.)

Rere atu Pāora
Hoki mai Pita
Hoki mai Pāora.
