Unplugged in Rarotonga...

This clip was shot for New Zealand television show Fresh. The series celebrates the outstanding achievements of our South Pacific people in all areas of the arts, sport and business. King Kapisi and I co-presented the episode which was shot in one of my home country’s, the Cook Islands. My Maori ancestral lines are from Mangaia, Aitutaki and Rarotonga. Benioni Tama Parei Joseph is my grandfather.

BE JUST FINE

VERSE I

Ish ain’t always turn out the way you want

Some people straight out lie and some swear they don’t

Is altruism an achievable goal?

In exchange for the key to your soul

Living righteously

[To give a lot or give a little]

Making history

[Ain’t so bad in the middle]

CHORUS

Keep your head up to the sky

Left foot followed by the right

After darkness must come light

Remind yourself the world is mine

Yours and mine

Rain or shine [yeah yeah yeah]

Yours and mine

Be just fine

The world is…

And we’ll be just fine

VERSE II

Yes – I’m contemplating about my life thus far

Yes – The up and the downs managed by my wary heart

Raise your hand if you over-standing me

Cos not all choices we make make them right

I’ve no use for wishing on a super nova at night

I make ish happen are you over-standing me?

CHORUS

Keep your head up to the sky

Left foot followed by the right

After darkness must come light

Remind yourself the world is mine

Yours and mine

Rain or shine [yeah yeah yeah]

Yours and mine

Be just fine

The world is…

And we’ll be just fine
