  • Swing out rhythmically, my feelings
  • lean out beside me, so deceptively.
  • Swing round and down, spin towards me
  • just like a fantail.

  • Swing to the side: swing to and fro
  • zoom down, wriggle,
  • climb up above, swarm around me
  • my whirling emotions, my poi, Yeah!

  • Oh my feelings, draw near,
  • Oh my poi, don't go astray
  • Oh my affections, stick to me
  • Oh my instincts, take care of me
  • Oh my emotions, be entwined around me.

  • Oh poi, our love...
  • Oh poi ...binds.
  • Poi.... my poi, yeah!
