Lyrics to the song 'A Pūkeko in a Ponga Tree...."

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
My true love gave to me
Three flax kits
Two kumara
And a pukeko in a ponga tree!

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!
