Native North American Child: Video-Lyrics by Buffy Sainte-Marie



"Native North American Child" from Album "Native North American Child"

Who's got a head o' hair to match up with the raven?
Who's got the prairie sun in every smile?
Who's got good credit yet with ol' Mother Nature?
Who? Native North American Child.

Who's got the rhythm of the universe inside her?
Who taught the Pilgrims how to make it in the wild?
Who sings a forty-niner autumnal changes
Who? Native North American Child.

Sing about your ebony African queen.
Sing about your lily-white Lili Marleen.
Beauty by the bushel, but the girl of the hour
Is a Native North American prairie flower.

Seminole, Apache, Ute, Paiute, and Shoshone,
Navaho, Comanche, Hopi, Eskimo, Cree,
Tuscarora, Yaqui, Pima, Ponca, Oneida,
Native North American me!

Sing about your ebony African queen.
Sing about your lily-white Lili Marleen.
Beauty by the bushel, but the girl of the hour
Is a Native North American prairie flower.

Cherokee, Muskogee, Fox, and Passamaquoddy,
Winnebago, Haida, Mohawk, Saulteaux, and Sioux,
Chickasaw, Ojibwe, Cheyenne, Mi'kmaq, and Mandan,
Native North American you!
