The Lyrics

Created when watching TV, when watching someone trying to sing a National Anthem
Southern Cross (part of NZ's flag)
Haka - probably NZ's best known dance
Waltzing Matilda - Australia's best known song
Ref - short for Referee
Ruck - usually seen in the scrum, when someone is lying all over the ball (best but illegal way to get the ball out on your side)
God save New Zealand
Is here to stay
The Pride, The Passion fills us up fast
And we're seen falling on our ass
We're no fools, it's so cool, it's alright
And we're rarely in a fight

Southern Cross has got them all beat
Invoking war, as we stand on our feet

Here it comes - it's the Haka (The Haka)
Get them Aussies with Waltzing Matilda
I f you wanna know the essence of it - just look oin our eyes
You will see we re intoxicated
To save yourselves - just run and hide

Here it comes - it's the Haka
They still stand there with amused faces
We're tired, We're beat, feelin' bittersweet
The Ref has left us to our own devices

Just give 'em a ruck and you'll see
Here comes the Haka
What will you do
Just don't stand there like fools

It's the Haka (Say What)
It's the Haka (Say What)

334. Finally a song you picked that I know. I just spend 15 minutes listening to this song 3 times to rate this ( nice to hear " Epic " again ).

Although "completeness" and " ability to sing the parody over The Original Song " ( TOS ) are not categories, when it comes to pacing I personally include them. This is practically impossible to sing over TOS, missing several lines at the end and average funny ( for an American, I suppose NZ'ers may find it hilarious ). I do give you credit for doing this song as it is difficult to do well.

Were you reading lyrics from a sheet? If so then it is definately excusable as FNM lyrics are basically horible ( even on their own CD covers at times ).
