Wannabe American Indian
« on: May 01, 2007, 04:10:29 pm »
From Honor Nation:

Wannabe American Indian
 (Sung to the tune of "American Idiot" With many apologies to Green Day)
 
 I wanna be an American Indian
 I wanna wear Tandy made regalia
 And I can feel the chicken feathers in my hair-a
 The dandiest looking Wannabee-ya.
 
 Welcome to a new kind of invasion
 All across the Indian Nations
 Anthropologists all say
 White people want your identity today
 White people wanting to be like Karl May
 New agers every day
 
 Well maybe some sellouts helped ya
 They’re part of the rainbow agenda
 Well grab some new ager to guide ya
 And sing along to the sounds of Kumbaya-ya
 
 Welcome to a new kind of invasion
 All across the Indian Nations
 Anthropologists all say
 White people want your identity today
 White people wanting to be like Karl May
 New agers every day
 
 I wanna be an American Indian
 I wanna wear tandy made regalia
 And I can feel the chicken feathers in my hair-a
 The dandiest looking Wannabee-ya.
 
 Welcome to a new kind of Invasion
 All across the Indian Nations
 Indianz all agree today
 We can really do without the aggravations
 Of white people dressing like Costner Imitations
 
 And that goes for [Insert name of Plastic Shaman] too

Heh heh,

Was wondering where this was going to pop up next.

I wrote another one that's been floating around too:


Indian Online
(Sung to the tune of Are you Online by BamBee)


Indian Online
Indian Online

I've been looking out for a vision
Indian Online

Deciding how to waste my time
I'll be in the forum quoting Elk Speaks soon
I've gotta check this vision through
needing validation too

Before logging on, first thing I gotta do
Check which tribe to play, Lakota, Cherokee or maybe somethin new
Maybe an obscure tribe or Metis
It's just a game I play, probably not Hopi
When my check clears, gonna join a cyber tribe, maybe
Get together my family tree too
I hope you don't see right through my disguise yet
I need validation from you

Am I Indian Online?
I'm waiting for a vision
Indian Online
Hiding my real self all the time
Come on in the forum, gonna quote Sun Bear soon
I've gotta check this dreamcatcher too
needing validation from you

In cyberspace, I can be Native too
I wish I was Indian so I can sound so mystical, it's true
But fake family trees are hard to trace
Can't pass off the blue marks on my face
As my only means of proving Indian ancestry
Got my granny's stories together so
I hope you don't see through my disguise just yet
Cause I gotta get the ok from you

Am I Indian online?
I'm still waiting for a sign
Indian Online
I'm still playing Indian online
Still in to the forum, gonna be quoting Churchill soon
I've gotta check these plastic beads too

Am I Indian online
Still waiting for that sign
Indian Online
I've been playing all the time

Desperately seeking validation, don't call me new age ok?
It's nothing new
Please please tell me I can be native yeah

Am I Indian Online?
Gettin sick of waiting for a sign
Indian Online
Gonna sulk some that's fine
Threaten to leave the forum if I'm not Indian soon
Gotta check this headband too

Needing validation from you!!
