Stand up you Kiwis

Terry Mechan

Time now to hoist up a flag of our own,
As well as the red, white and blue,
The Black and the Silver Fern flying aloft
Will make all New Zealand’s hearts true 

 

So stand up you Kiwis wherever you are
And raise your glass high to the sky
To
New Zealand, The Flag, The Black and The Fern
We’ll always be true till we die

 

From Northern Cape Rienga to down in South Point
And all our great land in between
The Black and the Silver Fern Flying aloft
Is now what we need on the scene

 

So stand up you Kiwis wherever you are
And raise your glass high to the sky
To
New Zealand, The Flag, The Black and The Fern
We’ll always be true till we die

 

 

 

Our heroes go out to conquer the field
In Distant Lands where we have dreams
And we‘ll raise a flag of our own at the end
To show them what New Zealand means 

 

It means we’re United, the Black and the White,
It means we won’t ever give in
And we’ll hold the Black and the Silver Fern high
Whether we lose or we win

 

So stand up you Kiwis wherever you are
And raise your glass high to the sky
To
New Zealand, The Flag, The Black and The Fern
We’ll always be true till we die

To New Zealand, The Flag, The Black and The Fern
We’ll always be true till we die
