Lyrics

On the first day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
A pukeko in a ponga tree.

On the second day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
Two kumera
And a pukeko in a ponga tree.

On the third day of Christmas.

and so on, until.

On the twelfth day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
Twelve piupius swinging
Eleven haka lessons
Ten juicy fish heads
Nine sacks of pipis
Eight plants of puha
Seven eels a swimming
Six pois a twirling
Five big fat pigs!
Four huhu grubs
Three flax kits
Two kumera
And a pukeko in a ponga tree!

I'm pretty sure its 10 haka lessons instead of 10 juicy fish heads :))

Am a staunch Kiwi, so needed the words to this song to help make ozzie workmates more culturaly aware.
