Sit down, sit down, you’re rocking the boat.
Sit down, sit down, you’re rocking the boat.
Sit down, sit down, you’re rocking the boat.
Sit down, you’re rocking the boat.
Sit down!

Cook Island
No o ki raro, no o ki raro, ka taka uri te poti.
No o ki raro, no o ki raro, ka taka uri te poti.
No o ki raro, no o ki raro, ka taka uri te poti.
No o ki raro, ka taka uri te poti.
No o ki raro!

Samoan
Nofo i lalo, nofo i lalo, ua ma luelue le va’a.
Nofo i lalo, nofo i lalo, ua ma luelue le va’a.
Nofo i lalo, nofo i lalo, ua ma luelue le va’a.
Nofo i lalo, ua ma luelue le va’a.
Nofo i lalo!
