US Gridiron team sing Maori waiata as their team hype song

Hip Hop Hollywood 17/11/2016

This American locker room is embracing our Maori culture by singing the waiata E Papa Waiari before they tale the playing field.

Although if they realized the lyrics that they were singing, perhaps they wouldn't be so cheery...

Lyrics below.

O Uncle Waiari, 
All I've been doing
All I've been doing
Is shedding tears

Chorus: 
Alas I will die; 
Oh darling, return to me 
Alas I will die; 
Oh darling, return to me 

2. I will count 
Your footsteps 
I will count
Your footsteps
