lyrics

We meet face to face
Greet nose to nose
Welcome me to your place
Smiling as our union grows

Oh yeah Taranaki, Oh yeah Taranaki town
Oh yeah Taranaki, Oh yeah Taranaki town

Takes me back to 18
I began to live my dream
Soaring high t’Southern seas
The land of milk ’n honey

Oh yeah Taranaki, Oh yeah Taranaki town
Oh yeah Taranaki, Oh yeah Taranaki town

We breathe the same breath
Hearts pulse the same beat
Build a rainbow with our smiles
As our spirits meet

Oh yeah Taranaki, Oh yeah Taranaki town
Oh yeah Taranaki, Oh yeah Taranaki town

Journey back t’myself
For I long had been apart
Mountain shows me my wealth;
Pot o’gold in my heart

Oh yeah Taranaki, Oh yeah Taranaki town
Oh yeah Taranaki, Oh yeah Taranaki town

Toota, toota, toota pe, toota pe, Taranaki
To ta pe, toota pe, toota pe Taranaki
To ta pe, toota pe, toota pe Taranaki
To ta pe, toota pe, toota pe Taranaki Town

Toi ya koko - Ya Kissy koko
Toi ya koko - Ya kissy way
Toi ya koko - Ya Kissy koko
Toi ya koko - Ya Kissy way

We meet face to face
Greet nose to nose
Welcome me to your place
Smiling as our union grows

Oh yeah Taranaki, Oh yeah Taranaki town
Oh yeah Taranaki, Oh yeah Taranaki town
Oh yeah Taranaki, Oh yeah Taranaki town
Oh yeah Taranaki, Oh yeah Taranaki town
