My Little Kaumatua

I see you at school
In the office, running the place,
While the teachers have their lunch
Answering the phone, taking care of business,
A switched on mind, you know what day it is!
I think to myself, this boy will go wherever he wants,
The world is his, here I come.
Then I see you on the school bus
You sit here; wait there’s one more to come
Your eyes are bright, your voice is clear,
The little Kaumatua has it all under control
I see you riding your bike, delivering papers, such responsible things to do
In the supermarket with your trolley, don’t need to line up at the checkout, the self service, just follow the instruction, press the buttons, Good to go
Yes-bright eyes, you know what day it is!
How’s my little Kaumatua today? Good!
I think to myself, yes this boy will go wherever he wants
The world is his, here I come.
What happened my little Kaumatua? I didn’t see my little Kaumatua.
