SONG OF THE MAORI TATOOER.
(Ttanslation.) " He who pays well let him Strike that the chisel, Be beautifully ornamented ; As it cuts along may sound, But he who forgets the operator, 0 Hiki Tangaroa ! Let him be done carelessly ; Men do not know the skill Be the lines far apart, Of the operator in driving his 0 Hiki Tangaroa ! Sounding chisel along, 0 Hiki Tangaroa ! 0 Hiki Tangaroa.! "
