Mahana

A song from Tahiti (French Polynesia), light and playful, about the sun going up and down. The chords are simple; a good starter on the guitar or ukulele.





Mahana, mahana
Ua hiti te mahana,
Ua taha te mahana,
Ua topa te mahana
Ua pō.

English:
It's daylight, it's daylight, (uncover eyes)
The sun is rising, (raise arms, make circle)
The sun is going down, (arms halfway down)
The sun is setting, (arms all the way down)
It's dark. (cover your eyes!)
