"Pow Wow"
========================
album _Legendary Hearts_
(Lou Reed, 1983)

written by Lou Reed
========================


        Christopher Columbus discovered America
        found he had a cornucopia
        Gave love to the Indians and they gave it back
        a pow wow in the teepee is where it's at

        I want to dance with you
        I want to dance with you
        I want to dance with you
        I want to dance with you

        The Indian fought with his arrow and his bow
        till General Custer lost to Sitting Bull
        Scalped all day and scalped all night
        give me that fire water, I'm gonna buy me a wife

        I want to dance with you
        I want to dance with you
        I want to dance with you
        I want to dance with you

        When your people first moved to our block
        our ancestors met with culture shock
        Two different monkeys from two different trees
        come on let's stop our fightin' and come dance with me

        Come on and dance with me
        come on and dance with me
        'Cause I really want to dance with you
        I want to dance with you
        come on and dance with me
